"The comfort zone is a behavioural state within which a person operates in an anxiety-neutral condition, using a limited set of behaviours to deliver a steady level of performance, usually without a sense of risk. A person's personality can be described by his or her comfort zones.
Highly successful persons may routinely step outside their comfort zones, to accomplish what they wish. A comfort zone is a type of mental conditioning that causes a person to create and operate mental boundaries. Such boundaries create an unfounded sense of security.
Like inertia, a person who has established a comfort zone in a particular axis of his or her life, will tend to stay within that zone without stepping outside of it. To step outside their comfort zone, a person must experiment with new and different behaviours, and then experience the new and different responses that occur within their environment."
Do something out of your comfort zone this week, push yourself and embrace how good it feels when you accomplish it. You may not be great at that first go but it feels good to do something out of your boundaries and bubble.

It is so easy to let time pass and be constantly looking forwards rather than breathing and living in the here and now.
Appreciate what you have achieved today and be appreciate towards those you have around you.
Money and possessions don't define a persons character or bring them happiness and love.
Remember to be kind and thoughtful to those you care about. It's too easy to think that people are already aware.
One kind word can go a long way.

During my nutrition consultations, I ask clients about their sleep and recovery and usually receive a long pause and blank look.
Sometimes followed by "I don't know really". As a new person to exercise, or even those that have caught the "fitness bug", recovery, sleep and mobility is rarely thought as important as the training and eating well itself.
Good recovery is what will prevent you from injury.
Good sleep will keep you strong, recovered and on top of your game. Lack of sleep will feel like an ultimate hangover and have you reaching for that sugar and caffeine to get you through your day....and maybe a bit more for training.
Mobility will keep you injury free, enable you to get to the bottom of that squat, overhead position, remove the lactic acid from your muscles and keep you supple and ready to hit your sessions. However it can be a lot to think about.
Training, eating and ensuring you get that recovery....where to start?
Keep on top of your A game and be the ultimate you and get in touch to train with me.
