Read about the whats and the whys here...




















Steve Jobs: “Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your inner voice.”

Stephen Covey: “The key is not to prioritise what’s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.”

Albert Einstein: “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”

 Henry Ford: “Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eye off the goal.”

 Christian da Larsen: “One of the principle reasons why so many fail to get what they want is because they do not definitely know what they want or because they change their wants almost every day. Know what you want and continue to want it. You will get it if you combine desire with faith. The power of desire when combined with faith becomes invincible.”


So many people don't get clear about what they really want. They let the how question sabotage their what question (never-mind why question). When we fear the how before the what, uncertainty creeps in and we fall short of ever creating absolute clarity about our true desire.


Being a self-employed freelance PT, owning your own business and living your life serving others, helping people take back control of their weight, health and fitness once and for all is truly inspiring.


But going from amateur fitness enthusiast to professional trainer is no mean feat. Indeed, even with a basic REPs 3 award there is still a massive gap to being sufficiently skilled, confident and business savvy to earning well as the go-to fitness professional in your area. And that's why Desire must come first. Looking forward to sharing the other 5 pillars with you.


Kind regards and wishing you a long and fulfilling career in fitness,
