Congratulations to my Little Bro, Client and Training partner @simonmhunter for winning this years Goodlife Health Clubs North Adelaide - 8 Week challenge Fitter Faster Stronger Novice category 👍💪 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Simon has completed 2 x 8 week challenges, using them as a pre pre- season for Football. His goal was not to get to a certain spot on the leader board, but to be pushed as hard as possible. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Last year he completed the 8week challenge in the off season and ended up winning the best and fairest player for his team. Here’s to another great season and who knows what he can achieve this season. Good luck! 🏉🏉 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #themindsethunt #adelaidept #development #afl #goodlife8wc #fitterfasterstronger2017 #novicewinner #clientrecognition #hardwork #preparation #season2018 #mindset #preseason #football #family #trainingpartner #brothers #brotherswholifttogether
Saturday night dinner!!! One of my favourites 🍕🍕 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ I’ve been building for 1 year to be able to eat this regularly (once a week). It’s taken time, patience, moderation and consistency.💯 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ All of these attributes are cliche’ right? Agreed! We hear it all the time through social media, our PT’s, coaches, dieticians, nutritionists etc..... the reality is that we wouldn’t be saying this if it weren’t true! We don’t say these things or give this advice because we like the sound of our own voices. Trust me, we would love to be able to say this once and have it sink in. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ I have been on the same macros for nearly 4 months and I reckon I’ve hit them 95% of the time. Long time hey!!!! That’s what it takes - TIME. Embrace these attributes and you will succeed. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #iifym #flexibledieting #2strongeliteperformance #themindsethunt #pizza #ilovefood #patience #moderation #discipline #time #consistency #adelaidept #motivated #makingachange #realityuncovered #saturdays #dinner #listentous
A Saturday off today so I thought I’d go and visit my buddies at @buddhafitstudio for a weights and cardio HIIT session 😅 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ It is important to change your training up from time to time for numerous reasons: 🔸to prevent boredom/maintain enjoyment 🔸to get out of a plateau 🔸to de-load from heavy weight periods (my main method of training at the moment) 🔸to train with your mates or other people 🔸to learn 🔸mental adaptation Thanks to @rachellelynchhassan and @salhassanfitness for smashing us today! 👍💪 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #buddhafit #themindsethunt #change #enjoyment #balance #hiit #dayoff #gassed #adelaidept #igers #adelaide #fitness #health #learning #socialising #teameffort #coffeeafter #mates #goodpeople #preventingplateaus #development #trusttheprocess #sweating
Spent the day at the @aadc2017 conference today, listening to some of the best athletic coaches in the country. 🏉🏀⚽️🎾🏏🏋️‍♀️🏊‍♂️🚴‍♂️ ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ I bought a book! Trying to get smarter so that I can be as efficient as possible in reaching my goal and also to pass that knowledge onto people who have the same or similar goals. 💪 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ If you want to progress in your career you have to be willing to sacrifice your own time to learn 📚 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #aadc2017 #themindsethunt #coaching #athletes #learning #knowledge #betteringyourself #payitforward #development #sportlover #hypertrophy #goaldriven #neversatisfied #science #musclebuilding #gains #strengthandconditioning #conferences #igers #adelaide #adelaidept #teams
Over the past year I have been working on changing my body shape and size with a specific goal in mind. I was questioning whether to show this pic as I still have a slight case of body dysmorphia!! BUT........ it’s more than just about looks!!!! 😉 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Looking at this photo you will see little change in my body from the original photo to the present, suggesting that I’ve ended up back where I was at the start, unless you know what to look for. I can assure you there has been change. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Here are the things I have experienced/learned over the past 12 months. 🔸1. Have gone from calories/macros unknown to starting at 2088 calories, currently at 3100 calories. 🔸2. Body fat % unknown. Got down to 9% body fat, currently sitting at 15%. 🔸3. Testosterone levels dropped right down to 2 ng/dl (normal = 12ng/dl for a 31yr old male). Not a good time for me. Very fatigued, minimal strength, energy very low. 🔸4. Learned to appreciate that the people that appear on the cover of magazines may not appear this way all year round and that most people are not able to stay this lean for extended periods of time without affecting their overall health. 🔸5. Calorie surplus is important in gaining muscle mass as well as improving strength. This may mean a slightly higher body fat%. Keep thinking of the bigger picture!!! 🔸6. I have learned to respect my body. I trained 6 days a week, worked 45-50hours a week and averaged 5-6 hours sleep a night at the beginning. This resulted in a very low testosterone level, something I’m still trying to rectify. 🔸7. Rest and recovery is so important. Train smarter, learn what your body is capable of and adapt it slowly over time. 🔸8. Patience - weight loss/gain, muscle mass gain, body fat loss/gain takes time, consistency and patience, more than the lay person realises. 🔸9. Calories and macros need to be adjusted slowly over time to allow the body to catch up, in turn managing body fat increases or decreases ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ This is just the beginning for me as I continue to learn and move closer to reaching my goal ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #2strongeliteperformance #themindsethunt #patience #respect #slowchange #adaptation #igers #adelaidept
Love this chick and her husband! ❤️🙏 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Haven’t seen her for 6 months, walked up gave her a kiss like i only saw her yesterday, then realised I hadn’t seen her for 6 months.

This is one of the reasons I train hard and eat well. Other than to remain healthy and fit, I do it so that i can enjoy these memorable moments with my mates (my family outside my direct family) and enjoy a couple of drinks without worrying if I am damaging my body or my progress. ❤️ Congratulations #teamcoshello A fantastic day!!!! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Those who know me well will know that I am a 💯or nothing kind of guy. Therefore balance is something I am continually working on. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ So to allow myself some balance on this special occasion #teamcoshello wedding I had 10g less carbs and fats each day for the week leading up to the event. This allowed me to have macros and calories in the bank for a day that I knew would involve higher calories. #flexibledieting ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ So it was a great day and night with my mates and now it’s time to get back to the grind with a higher activity day, beginning with a LISS walk for an hour and then a gym session later on. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #themindsethunt #lovemymates #secondfamily #teamcoshello #glenewinestate #glenewinweddings #lads #balance #dressedup #setting #crackingday #funtimes #100ornothing💯 #flexibledieting #adayoff #notrackingtoday #banter #neededthis
There is more to fitness and health than just losing weight or building muscle (two of the most common goals I hear daily). ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ I have been training this girl @cla_bear for around 6 months now. Over this time we have had to overcome numerous fears and barriers, all of a different nature. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ We are now 5 weeks into the Goodlife Health Clubs 8 week challenge and this girl is flying. Doing everything that is asked of her and more. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ It is imperative that you take into consideration all aspects of health and fitness and the things that go hand in hand with your goals, physical, psychological, nutritional, hormonal, family just to name a few. If you don’t consider all these aspects you will plateau at some stage. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Think outside the box, it may be the difference between success and failure! 💪 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #themindsethunt #clientrecognition #adelaidept #fitness #health #goals #smashingbarriers #progression #asics #overcomingfear #squats #hardwork #discipline #8weekchallenge #goodlife #movingforward #support #care #

New wheels finally!! Been kicking around in some pretty poor shoes the past couple of weeks. 👟👟 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ If you have a job that requires you to be on your feet a lot I suggest finding a style/brand of shoes that allows you to be comfortable. ASICS Gel Nimbus are the ones for me. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Ever since I can remember I have had some sort of foot trouble when wearing a shoe that is not appropriate for my foot type. My mum picked this up pretty early on in my life and even though I complained about the look at times, bought me shoes that suited my foot type. I thank her very much for this as it allowed me to continue to play sport to the best of my ability relatively pain free. ❤️ ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Do yourself and your feet a favour and find the correct footwear for you. Your feet will thank you down the track! 👟👟 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #themindsethunt #asics #asicsnimbus #shoes #sneakers #runningshoes #footwear #besmart #newwheels #footpain #painprevention #comfortableshoes #fast #thanksmum #mumlooksafterme #longdays #comfyfeet #foothealthmonth #podiatry

Sunday night homemade Burgers!! 🍔🍔 💥 #iburntthebuns 😂 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ It’s like eating takeaway but without the additional oil and fat. It just takes a little more effort.

#Repost by our champion of a client @themindsethunt ・・・ In the last couple of weeks I have had quite a few people ask me how I can eat so much! 🍏🥑🍅🍠🥗🍗🍕➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Well the reason is because I have built up my macro and micro nutrients through a flexible dieting approach for the past 10 months under the guidance of my coaches at @2strongeliteperformance ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ These guys and this method of nutrition have really helped me as I used to be a 12 week, 100% clean eater 🥗🍏🥕then binge due to restricting myself so much🍕🍔🍩 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ It doesn't matter what method of nutrition you use there is still a change in mindset, discipline, moderation, a will to learn, acceptance of change and balance involved. Notice how I didn't put the word restriction in there!!!!!!!!😉 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ If you really want to make a change with your nutrition and health, without restricting yourself and maintaining balance, hit these guys up @2strongeliteperformance 💪 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #themindsethunt #2strongeliteperformance #flexibledieting #iifym #balance #coaches #client #norestriction #ilovefood #moderation #discipline #hardwork #goals #adelaidept #igers #takethetimetoimprove #norush #biggerpicture #meals #lotsoffood #trainhard #eatlots #macros #micros #tracking

Shout out to my client @thuy.dang3 today who participated in the 2017 Adelaide City to Bay!🏅 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Thuy has been my client for nearly 3 years now and has been smashing goals from the start. Around 4 months ago she expressed that she would like to complete the City to Bay in under 60mins. This is the 3rd city to bay she has completed since she started training with me, with this one the first using a specific training program. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ I set Thuy up with a specific 12 week training program, periodised to have her in peak condition come today. Thuy's previous City to Bay time in 2016 was 1hour 6mins. Well today she cracked the 1 hour mark with 59:53 mins. A fantastic improvement. Congratulations @thuy.dang3 and well done! 👍 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #themindsethunt #citytobay2017 #trainingprogram #staythepath #trusttheprocess #adelaidept #periodisation #tailoredprogram #goals #feelinggood #smashinggoals #personalbest #clientrecognition #running #2strongeliteperformance #repping #greatday #sunshine #springweather #glenelgbeachadelaide #loyalclient #amazingeffort #

I love knowing that I am helping someone to achieve their goals no matter how long it takes them. This is why I am determined to keep learning and developing my skills! 🙌 P.S Croc is my nickname 😉 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ This client of mine (a cricketer) has been suffering chronic shoulder pain and decreased range of motion since having a shoulder reconstruction 5+ years ago and a follow up arthroscopy 1-2 years ago. He has also been dealing with hamstring tendonitis at the same time. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ The toll cricket has taken on his body has left him with spurring around the shoulder girdle and range of motion issues effecting his cricket. 🏏Understanding that this may be his last season this guy has given everything to rehabbing these problems. With countless physio and massage appointments as well as a tailored 12 week training program we have been able to get him pain free, improved range of motion and recovering well from his pre-season training sessions. Strength and power have also been improved. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ A combined effort was required from a physiotherapist, massage therapist and myself to put this guy in the best possible position coming into this pre-season. Hats off to his persistence and determination. We can all learn from this guy! 👊😉 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #themindsethunt #clientrecognition #persistence #cricket #rehabilitation #igers #programing #adelaidept #strengthandconditioning #sportspeople #onelastchance #nevergiveup #gymlife #health #fitness #thankyou #thisiswhyidoit #appreciationpost #wantit #noexcuses #determination #cricketsa #gradecricket #lastditcheffort #doit
Today's leg session! Feels good to be getting some strength 💪 and energy back. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ It is a day by day process at the moment, but things are picking up. 👊. In life curve balls are thrown your way from time to time. Take a step back and assess the situation for a moment or for as long as you need to see the path forward. You will find that most situations are not as bad as they seem and can be overcome when thought through. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ You've got this!

A few vids from today's shoulders workout. Slowly getting back into it! 🐌🐢 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ You may have recently seen my post regarding burnout?? The reason behind this previous post is that this crept up on me resulting in a hormone imbalance. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ To paint a picture 👨‍🎨🎨 1. I was working 5 1/2 - 6 days per week 2. Training 6 days a week 3. 5-6 hours sleep per night 4. I decreased my weight and body fat quite considerably 5. I was taking a medication that unbeknownst to me contributed to lowering of certain hormones. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 'So what' you may ask, I work longer/harder than that each week and I don't get that much sleep. I would reply with yes you may do, but then I'd ask "How do you feel"? Really, How do you feel? ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Some things that I noticed 1. Decreased energy 2. General increase in stress levels 3.Fatigue, fatigue, fatigue 4. Dry skin 5. Brain fog - trouble concentrating 6. Decrease in strength & training intensity 7. I was drinking 6-7 coffees some days 8. Plus some more personal symptoms ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ I like to work hard, I want to be as successful as I can be, I don't like excuses and I don't like giving in! So when the doctor told me I had to change my lifestyle my first thought was how the hell am i going to do that? I felt like I was being told to give in and I'm still struggling with the thought of backing off now. BUT this is NOT going to be permanent!! I will get back to where I was!!!!!! 👊 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ I have started training every 2nd day I'm getting 7.5-8 hours sleep a night Drinking 3-4 litres of water a day Only 2 coffees a day I continue to work with my coaches @2strongeliteperformance And the major focus of them all is staying MINDFUL to beat stress! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ The fitness industry is flooded with motivation regarding working hard and pushing yourself to that next level but there is no point pushing yourself to the level that you become unhealthy or even sick. This can have unwanted long term side effects. Work hard but learn about your body!! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #themindsethunt #2strongeliteperformance #mindfulness #balance #burnout #hormones #smart #onestepbacktwostepsforward #retraining #hormoneimbalance

Burnout!!!! 🤦‍♂️🔥 Have you experienced this, I mean really experienced a total burnout that effects your productivity, your goals and ultimately your health, physically and mentally?➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Recently I have experienced this! I got caught up in my work and training and forgot about the other aspects of life. Working 6 days a week, (plus the additional hours at home), training 6 days a week, not getting enough sleep as well as other little stressors of life all of which contributed to a decline in my overall health. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ When you have a goal and are 💯% serious about reaching that goal, you do whatever it takes right?? Sometimes your body reminds you that BALANCE is required by showing you signs and symptoms. This is what happened to me. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Now I'm not saying that you shouldn't work hard towards your goals and success (whatever that may be) but balance is required in life and what does it matter if it takes you a little longer to get the results you are looking for. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ If you have experienced this remember to have time for YOU! 👈 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #themindsethunt #burntout #balance #lifestylechange #lookafteryourself #prioritisehealth #timeforyou #sleep #isitreallyworthit #worktolive #dontlivetowork #enjoyment #holiday #biggerpicture

This is what holiday/poor food does to you! 🍕🥓🍳🍔🍛 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Photo top left pre-holiday Photo on right - during holiday Photo bottom left post-holiday 👇 As you can see by the photo on the right I'm holding fluid and I can guarantee you at this stage I was not feeling well at all!!! Firstly bad food was not agreeing with me. Secondly an upset tummy (Thai tummy) created a lot of bloating and inflammation within my bowel. But in just two days of eating quality, whole foods my body is beginning to head back in the right direction (bottom left photo). ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Why am I showing you this? I wanted to show you that I am an everyday person, who likes to holiday, experience all types of food and relax and enjoy life just like you. BUT!!!! Everything is in moderation, I work really hard on learning about my body and improving my mind. I'm not a model on a magazine cover, I'm just like YOU 👊, my body reacts really quickly to certain foods, some foods upset my gut, I have good days and bad days, I have told myself that I can't and made excuses in the past, but I changed this thought process around and WILL NOT go back! Your body may not react to foods quickly and that is ok as we are all different, but realise that this can be changed, with guidance, hard work, moderation and discipline! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ 1. People react differently to different foods 2. Some people hold more fluid than others (there are many reasons for this) 3. When your body begins to work correctly it will let you know that it doesn't agree with certain foods, but it will also repair itself quite quickly if you provide it with the correct nutrients. 4. When working properly your body will change quickly and dramatically at times depending on the situation it is in (e.g. The photo on the left showing fluid retention and bloat) ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #themindsethunt #learnyourbody #happygut #unhappygut #flexibledieting #iifym #igers #adelaidept #standardhuman #normal #justlikeyou #reactingbody #tummytrouble #holidayfood #detox #cleansing #fluidretention #canyourelate #sunburnt #forgotthesunscreen #singlettan #lotsoffish #hungryfish #thailandholiday #goodfoodbadfood

I suggest you give it a read if things are not working the way you would like. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #themindsethunt #theclevergutsdiet #straightbackintoit #cleanse #repairingmygut #stomachtrouble #wholefoods #cleaneating #yum #applecidervinegar #fermentedfoods #gutbiome #oldfriends #bacteria #hormones #emzymes #alwayslearning #dontjustexceptfeelingunwell

It was a wet day, but warm and the water was magnificent! #nofilter ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Last stop on our James Bond Island tour. @rangyaiisland. Unfortunately no snorkelling today due to bad weather. We went canoeing and had lunch on a floating town as well as visited James Bond Island (The man with the golden gun) ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #rangyaiisland2017🌴 🌊🍍🍍 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #themindsethunt #thailand #thailandislands #phuket #patong #rangyaiisland #privateisland #holidayfun #relaxation #longday #canoeing #floatingvillage #raining #stormclouds #chasingthesun #buffalotours #2017 #whitesandbeaches #crystalbluewater #pearls
Muay Thai boxing where it all originated 🥊🥊 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ This was an experience. The bloke in the red shorts was Aussie and won the fight by KO, but not before getting his head split open. This is towards the end of the fight and as you can see they are almost spent! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Man these guys can kick hard. We could hear the thuds and slaps very easily. They start from the kids and work their way up to the main fights. The kids are seriously tough. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Skill, discipline and patience, something we can all work and develop!! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #themindsethunt #muaythai #muaythaiboxing #fightnight #whereitallstarted #martialarts #thailandsport #toughness #discipline #patience #skill #hardhitting #aussieaussieaussie #tatoocentral #respect #buddha #whatanexperience #boxing #sports #culture #differentcultures

Alternating arm/knee drives: transverse abdominus, int/ext obliques, engage the core throughout the whole movement, drive knee and row arms with purpose ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #themindsethunt #athleticdevelopment #strengthandconditioning #adelaidept #igers #programing #running #athlete #helpingclients #citytobay #stability #conditioning #strength #functionaltraining #creativeexercises
An insight into how the body can change from day to day!!! 👇👇 It's hard to use other people as an example due to the unfortunate lack of confidence people have in themselves. So I'll use myself as an example in the hope that I can help people become more informed in what to expect from their bodies throughout their journey!!!➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Both photos are in a flexed position: Photo on the left: taken before my Re-feed (50g extra carbs for the day). A Pizza will be consumed 🍕 Photo on the right: the day after my re-feed day. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ The photo on the left shows that I'm a lot leaner through my abdominal area. The photo on the right shows me holding fluid around this area from the food that I consumed the night before. Fluid retention will be gone in 2-3 days of hitting my macro nutrients with an 80%/20% clean food/relaxed food ratio. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ The point: 1. Take the time to get your body functioning well internally. 2. When this has improved be happy that your body is reacting/changing noticeably on a daily basis with the food that you consume, as this means internally your body is starting to function better (most people don't notice the change until later when they feel something is not right, increased weight, lethargy, depression etc....). 3. When your body is functioning better, be ok with the body changing, as you know why it has changed and it's a lot easier to get back to where you want to be! 4. Be confident with your body (we are all different) spend the time/be patient in developing it and getting your inner body working better!! 👍 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #themindsethunt #2strongeliteperformance #nevergiveup #bodychanging #fluidretention #bodydismorphia #discomfortisgrowth #learnyourbody #timewilltell #patience #understandyourbody #igers #adelaidept #confidence #confidenceinyourself
One of my clients @gypsies getting it done this morning with a few HITT exercises. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Liz's Friday morning session (her second for the week) consists of High intensity training. Great for burning calories during a session but also for continuing to burn calories after your training session!! ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Liz has been training with me for around 2+ years now and has seen a huge improvement in strength, core strength, muscle endurance and mind muscle connection! Great work Liz, keep improving and showing that hard working attitude. 👍💪 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #themindsethunt #clientrecognition #hardwork #hiitworkout #hiit #caloriesburn #mindmuscleconnection #improvement #toughness #resilient #mindset #giveusafollow #nevergiveup #noexcuses #giveityourall #discomfortisgrowth
