Focus on the basics Padawans

So many people, myself included, over-complicate matters when getting into fitness. People start worrying about whether they are doing the right kind of training, eating the right kinds of food, going to the gym as many days as they should be. But like all things, the only focus you should have when entering into something new is mastering the basics, […]

Sleep and sleep some more

We live in a society with very little respect for sleep. I could go off on a rant and spout all the scientific reasons why you need to sleep and how it is incredibly important for the health of your brain and physical performance, but these points have been made over and over again by health professionals. At the end […]

So when I hear people say they don’t like to workout, I am a bit stumped. You are telling me that you don’t enjoy any kind of physical movement whatsoever? working out is […]

Beginnings

The beginning is always the most difficult. We can fantasize about something, plan it out in the most excruciating of detail, compile note upon note with the intention of having the most perfectly executed start, and then never get off the couch. It’s the fear. It drives our procrastination, can make us drown ourselves in an information flow, justify a […]

Steady effort

When it comes to being in shape, consistency is key. But too many people get caught up in the minutiae, creating programs and perfect 10 year visions of how they want to progress. Now if you are someone who is a professional athlete this makes complete sense, but for the average¬† person getting bogged down in these things can be […]

The veil of civilization

There are certain moments in life which shed light on the madness that is the human existence in our technology based life. We have had no electricity in large parts of the province for the last 2 days, and it is looking like it will be another 2 days before it all gets put back online. Luckily enough for me […]

Just get it done

All it takes is one decision to change the direction of your day. It doesn’t matter what happened yesterday, a week ago, years ago. And it doesn’t matter what happens tomorrow. All that matters is today. This moment, this choice. To do the thing that you know will make you feel successful. And not that fake success of instagram, posting […]

The joy of being sore

I hurt. Not in the I may have broken something way, but in the I know I did some good work this week kind of way. That first week back to steady training is always the worst, it zaps your energy, makes you sore in places you forgot existed, wreaks havoc on your sleep. And yet it feels great knowing […]

Exploring yourself through movement

There are a myriad of ways to move. Walking, running, dance, parkour, dozens of sports and many more ways to express ourselves. But as a society we have forgotten the simplest way of moving;¬† play. Rolling around, shifting and gyrating our bodies on the ground and through the air. Simply allowing ourselves to go through every motion the body is […]

Your body is more than just click bait

There are many training methods vying for dominance in the world. With the rise of social media platforms such as instagram, it’s become easy for people to use their bodies to push ways of training that MIGHT get you to look good naked, but most definitely do not build a healthy mindset towards movement and fitness. For obvious reasons, aesthetics […]

Play the long game

Note to self: Always be aware of when to push hard in training. The human body is a miracle, capable of a multitude of actions, a Master at general movement. Restrict it’s movements though, allow laziness and ineptitude to take hold in your life, and all you are doing is creating an accident in waiting. Going all in when you […]

Life happens

It happens to everyone. You make a plan, it’s perfect. Eat like this, train this many times, sleep at this hour, and then, Life happens. It’s a matter of discipline and focus, and yet no matter how much we strive to do the things we promise to ourselves we all somehow fall off the wagon. Maybe you had a good […]
