Reflections On 2015

Thanks for taking a moment to read my blog. Last year was a very successful year for me and I am extremely grateful to the people who helped me clear a path. It was rewarding but it was anything but easy.

I started my year with some specific intentions regarding training, nutrition and reading but got side tracked by a number of obstacles. There’s nothing quiet like setting outrageous goals to start the year and then watching life rear it’s responsible head 😉

The second test I underwent was the South African Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale. As you can see there is a marked difference in the information presented in the two tests below. (more…)

Experiments With Stress Management & Performance

I have been training for close to 14 years. In that period I have learned a thing or two about performance, cognition and wellness…

What I can tell you is there is a massive difference between talking the talk and walking the walk. My industry is saturated with people who have not a single transformation behind them. It’s pretty scary.
