Self Image (Part 1)

As we get further into our Winter Warrior challenge, we are now getting into some of the juicy components of the profile of a Winter Warrior. After desire, the next thing we see in the profile, is Self Image. Self image is an area where people often absolutely destroy themselves…

Winter Warrior – Born to Succeed

There is so much in the Winter Warrior challenge that connects to the core of what we do at Evo. The whole competition centre’s itself around connecting to people we train with, working together to keep each other engaged with what is happening in our training and connecting with the natural environment around us…

Desire – Is this all it takes?

As we are going through the Winter training journey at training, we are going to dissect what is needed for the profile of a Winter Warrior and how this can be projected into the rest of your life. The first quality and first attitude that shows up before anything is achieved at training, is desire…

Winter Warrior – Summer Bodies Forged in Winter

Over the next few weeks we are going to be tackling what I am defining as the “Profile of a Winter Warrior”. We are going to be looking at what gets in the way for people with their training and ultimately extending into their lives. Yep, I’m making the big claim, that the barriers that come up for you in your training are going to be consistent with the barriers in your life…

The Golden Age of Strength & Conditioning – Why do we ‘Train’?

For the first time in the modern training era, there is an unparalleled cross discipline exchange among training practices and theories of human movement. For example, most training practices are now an interdisciplinary melting pot of physiotherapists, exercise physiologists, olympic lifters, gymnasts, kettlebell lovers, dancers, yogis, pilates instructors and the list goes on…

Train Like a Girl (Pt 2)

A week ago I wrote part one of this edition looking at the way in which we hold females in training. In part one we tackled the idea that the physiological difference between males and females was not as exaggerated in strength and fitness as some have you believe…

Train Like A Girl (Pt 1)

This is always going to be a potentially controversial topic to write about, but as you would all be aware, I never really shy away from telling you what I think. Being the feminist warrior that I am, I think the recognition of inherent social inequalities are incredibly important to discuss. I will start by saying, boys, I haven’t forgotten about you…

No such thing as Overtraining – Just Under Recovery!

In the fitness industry there is always a lot of talk about the best training styles and what types of training best help you achieve your results. But as every regular exerciser would have experienced at one time or another, plateaus in your training happen! If I am smashing myself with 100% effort in every session then why am I not just continually seeing the results of training?

What Shoes Do You Wear?

The human body was made to move and is capable of amazing physical feats. If we could just free ourselves from our perceived limitations and tap into our eternal fire, the possibilities are endless. Our bodies are incredibly adaptable machines that jump when you tell them to jump. When our mind says yes, the body obeys, through all sorts of past and present injuries that we may be carrying…

Fall In Love With The Process And The Results Will Come

I want to revisit the world of authenticity today. This is a word that I throw around a lot in my life and a concept that we are all, directly or indirectly, engaging with every day. Authenticity is where we get all our power, freedom and self expression in life. It allows the development of true connection with those in your life and the ability to stand for yourself and your success…

‘Why’ Will Get You Through The ‘How’

Over the next couple of weeks we are going to be looking at goal setting and why it is so important in what we do. Goal setting is one of those funny areas that people struggle with. There are 2 forms of struggle when we are goal setting. The first appears to be that we don’t actually set a goal…

Bake your cake from scratch

Lately the weather is throwing all the joys of outdoor training our way, having trained through all types of mornings. What is amazing to see is that your training hasn’t wavered. The amazing thing is, people are still there punching out the training and no matter how uncomfortable the days have been, everyone still turns up…
