Why you, why here, why now?

 

“ True healing must consider the mind, body and spirit. I come from a place that straddles both worlds"

-Dr Kylie Dodsworth
 
 
Welcome to episode 20 of the travelling wellness show.
 
Every day I field calls and emails from people who are completely dissatisfied with their local GP and at the point of losing faith in the entire medical system.
With so much 'them versus us’ constantly dividing the natural and allopathic modalities, you can hardly blame the end consumer when they literally don’t know where to turn next when their health takes a turn for the worse.
 

“ The issue was never about people being open to it, it was about the structure being open to it. (in clinic) I ran late a lot of the time”

-Dr K

 
But you need not despair as more and more doctors are breaking away from the mainstream and starting to consider ‘all of you’ within the treatment paradigm. Despite the fact that once upon a time this was simply ‘best practice’, it certainly feels like a different time and place now, as people struggle in ways that medicine cannot always define, nor fully rectify.
 
 
 
Let me introduce you to Dr Kylie Dodsworth, an integrative medical practitioner from South Australia who combines her extensive medical knowledge with a deeper understanding of life, and our roles within it. Dr Kylie is a breath of fresh air, and simply put, a medical practitioner of the highest standard.
And let me just clarify for the record, I serve the people not the agenda, and in so, this is not an attack on general practise, more a reminder that complexed states of dysfunction always require complexed solutions for true healing to occur.
 
 
 
Love you guys. Please enjoy the show

“ When I reached 33, the flame that sat inside me got reignited, and I became conscious of the fact that I was capable of more. It was like this hunger I couldn’t ignore”

 

-Janet Smith

 
 
 
 
Welcome to episode 19 of the travelling wellness show.
 
Are you one of the many who struggle to blend the monotony of your day to day, with the burning desires that lie inside?? Have you ever dreamed of more, only to be told or shown that it’s not possible?? Well, join the long line of people in front of you…
 
Today’s guest, like many others who have faced life-changing events, chose to walk the road less travelled & stick the middle finger up at the very society that was trying to dictate the terms of her existence.
 

“ I felt so much guilt as a mother wanting more from my life. I still fight this to this day.”

 

 
 
At the park with her kids, Janet Smith appears like any other mother of three, but don’t be fooled, because this chick has a few extra tricks up her sleeve. An acclaimed accomplished Obstacle racer both here and abroad, Janet has started to work out what balance looks like, after a long time without much at all.
Everytime someone said no, all Janet heard was YES. When self doubt and guilt screamed “slow down”, Janet ran quicker in the other direction. And the moral to the story is that we all have hopes and dreams and we are all capable of achieving them. It’s ultimately about choice, personal determination and the love & support of those around us.
 
As a semi-finalist in this years “Australian Ninja Warrior”, Janet has decided to keep playing a bigger game. You can support Janet’s amazing journey through her facebook & instagram profile janetannsmith, and by viewing the semifinals of Australian Ninja Warrior that Janet appears in this weekend.
 
It’s time to get motivated
 
Enjoy guys
 
 
“As a mum of three girls I wanted to play that role model to them. I wanted to show them what strong, fit & healthy looked like”
 
 
 
-Janet Smith

"I once read this thing about footprints in the sand and decided not to tread the path of anyone else. I wanted to be original”

 

-Cheyne Horan

 

Welcome to episode 18 of the travelling wellness show

 

Let me start by saying that this episode has very little to do with surfing, and is possibly one of the most thought provoking episodes I’ve done & with content that was completely unexpected.

 

Surfing has simply offered today’s guest a deeper connection & unparalleled life perspective that only mother nature can possibly serve up.

 

Cheyne Horan is a true innovator, visionary & public activast, who has used his voice & public position to help make the world better.

 

“ I realised that surfing and life intertwined. If i sought to experience a wave in a different way, I also experienced life in a different way”

 

-Cheyne Horan

 

 

We discuss

 

*Cheyne’s affinity for macrobiotic eating, yoga & meditation & his ultimate goal of cleaning mind, body & Spirit

*Cheyne’s connection to legendary innovator Ben Lexen, and the fin that challenged the industry.

*How surfing changed his life, and the parallel between how one surfs & how one chooses to live.

*How age has affected his ability to do what he loves

*Cheyne’s crusade to put etiquette back into the water and the world.

*What it means to truly carve your own path in life

 

 

I love this bloke and am so pleased to introduce you to a true soul surfer.

We all have things to learn from Cheyne Horan

Did you know that on average we consume approximately 200 eggs per year each and that's talking it down for many, but have you every pondered the true reality of just what kind of egg you're purchasing & the impact your choice is having not only on your personal nutrition, but also upon the reality of the laying hens?

 

 

Behind any consumable food product lies our farmers & food tech specialists, who may or may not be considering the impact of their practices upon our health. And with recent stats eluding to the true reality of how may eggs we actually consume per capita, it’s high time we started to observe the impact of our food choices both upon the subsequent effects that are passed onto our health & that of our loved ones + the overall environmental impact of shitty ethical standards.

 Today I tell the tale of 2 farmers, who ask all the right questions and focus upon perfecting small yield growing practices with eggs.

 

We discuss...

 -Industry standards of ‘Free Range VS Organic and Pastured eggs, and how this relates to animal welfare.

 

- What is 'meaningful access’ in the free range system, and why marketing is deceiving you every time you try to make an informed choice when choosing an egg to purchase

 -The prevalence & disappointing reality of pesticide & herbicide overuse in the food industry + the toxic reality of conventionally grown food & why YOU need to start questioning what goes into your body.

 -Why you should either be purchasing organic & pastured eggs from local farmers in your area OR keeping chooks at home yourself

 -The reality of this low margin commodity, and the actual value of our food which unfortunately has become lost over time.

 I hope this episode makes us all have a good look at our value systems around food, and start getting back to the larger life questions that have become lost throughout the daily struggle of life.

“We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.” — Winston Churchill

 

 Let me introduce you to Glen ‘Micro' Hall; the ex pro athlete turned coach, who is making waves in the world of surfing with his unique approach to leadership that certainly seems to be paying dividends.

 

With surfing now confirmed as an addition to the 2020 Olympics, opportunity for the current world elite is certainly hotting up as big brands bring along big money, and the prize purses continue to grow. BUT, with big money comes big stress, as athletes seek to ensure higher levels of their own self-mastery; literally pushing the limits at every turn at the world’s most dangerous surf locations.

 

 

In the world of Glen ‘Micro’ Hall however, he is as much about the journey as he is the result, but don’t for a minute think this is some soft, new-age approach because under HIS wing, Micro’s athletes are dominant across world stages.

 

Literally feeling his way as he goes, Micro keeps his athlete's feet planted securely on terra firma, keeping deliberate consciousness around the reality of the lifestyles they endure; the travel, the idyllic locations, the ever changing cuisines, the people and of course the waves. Perfect waves.

 

From the Ripcurl house in Margaret River I bring you a bloke who fell into the role of coach, but never read the handbook.

Please Enjoy,

Shannon...

Welcome to episode 15 of the travelling wellness show
 
On today’s show I’m in Margaret River and hanging out the man that many label as the best athlete EVER. Kelly Slater
 
 
 
 
If you’re a girl, there’s a strong probability that you’ve had a crush on Kelly since the 7th grade, where his name was written on your pencil case & his baby face & crystal blue eyes hung proudly over your bed. And if you’re a guy with an interest in the ocean, there’s a 100% chance that Kelly has inspired your journey with his futuristic style & flair for innovation both in & out of the water.
If you’re neither, but simply a fan of sport, you’ll be hard pressed to name an athlete that even comes close.
 
 
King Kelly IS all that. Inspired by his craft he has dominated the world stage in a sport where mastery is far & few between.
 
But behind the enigma that is Kelly Slater lies a warm and sensitive soul who craves connection. Like us all, Kelly battles his own demons & seeks to make sense of it all in a world that he describes as too fast.
In this podcast I explore the man behind the brand, and open Kelly up in ways that most have never heard. His authentic transparency & willingness to share with us all is a gift that I never expected, and when the stop button was pushed, it didn’t finish there. What I can say is that in the hours I spent with Kelly, he revealed a level of normalacy & genuine decency that I would only expect from a best friend.
 
To you Kelly, thank you.
 
 
 
 
 
 
We explore in detail,
 
- Kelly's early years, and the challenging family dynamics which have shaped the man he has become
- Diet; then and now. From the bottom of the Cheerios box to his chia seed ambassadorship.
- Global sustainability and ocean ecology, including the comment on Shark culling which resulted in death threats.
- The pros and cons of life in the public eye
- Kelly's brands, including Outerknown and the now infamous KS Waveco. which is changing the future direction of surfing as we know it.
- Kelly's relationship with long term brand sponsor Quiksilver, and the factors which led to the split.
- His other love; Golf
- The book that changed Kelly's life
- Life regrets
- Road trips with Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam (Kelly even sings a few notes!)
- Kelly's favourite waves
- How he conquered his fear of drowning
- Kelly's advice to his younger self
-And so much more!

When I was a boy, the type of healthcare sought & utilised was the choice of my family, and my family alone. Fast forward 30 years though and it seems that 'choice' isn't always as accessible to everyone.

For Episode 14 I simply tell the story of Homoeopathy as I know it to be.

'Plausible' as my guest would describe it, and a deliberate healing system which addresses not just the whole person, just the whole illness as it presents. Case by case. Can you even imagine being treated completely independently by your local doctor, rather than separate from your condition? After all, there was a general imbalance which led you to the subsequent state of dysfunction that you now view as disease or pathology. How can we actually be separate from our disease?

 

 

DRUGS DON'T CURE, THEY MITIGATE THE SYMPTOMS.

IF WE HAVE A HEADACHE, IS IT BECAUSE WE 'LACK' PARACETAMOL?  NO, IT'S BECAUSE THERE ARE THINGS HAPPENING IN THE BODY TO CAUSE THE HEADACHE

-Unknown source.

George Dimitriadis is a professional amongst professionals. Not only does he accept the position that Homoeopathy is in an a modality, but he mocks the actions and philosophies of many that practice it. With over 30 years clinical experience, George follows and practices the original teachings and observations of Samuel Hahnemann; the founding father of Homoepathy, and keen researcher of medical sciences. These are his stories as they once occurred and are now either forgotten or buried.

I truly fear that we have moved away from medicines that heal, further and further towards isolated drugs for symptomatic control. After all, cures are forever & forever is a very long time.

"Stress is an adaptive response to your environment. 

Is what's happening in you life under control, or is it out of your control and you can no longer change or exert an influence on it?"

-Dr Elen

 

The topic of stress is usually met with two differing judgements; those that get it & have experienced its full wrath, and those who don't and are yet to receive a front row seat to the show.

There isn't a clinician in the world, across any modality, who won't agree that unregulated chronic stress complicates every disease or physiological dysfunction known to us at this time. And if it doesn't just exacerbate the symptoms, it can generally be traced to the very root cause that created the dis-ease to begin with. You literally won't find another single determinant capable of achieving so much, and as such, stress must be acknowledged, better understood and considered as a daily component of your life.

As a clinician, it's interesting to witness on a daily basis that most people don't identify with 'being stressed', despite the obvious signs of physiological deterioration. As adaptive creatures we literally accept stressors as normal components of life in the modern time, and push through the early warning signs that stress provides us with; the allergies, the fatigue, the brain fog, the menstrual dysfunctions and mood irregularities all provide the early framework for what should be acknowledged as an organism under load. And by the time autoimmunity & other inflammatory disease rears it's ugly head, opportunity has been lost, and the battle to control the acute phase response takes over. Regardless though, stress will & must be considered at some stage, so unless you choose to spend your life living between acute flairs, it's time to take stock.

 

"In it's primitive form, stress was an acute response for survival. It had a beginning and an end"

 

From my personal perspective, so many of us fail to acknowledge or accept that we are stressed due to the underlying subconscious aspects of failure. Accepting what is literally forces us to accept that we may not be where we initially expected to be at this time, or that we are actually out of control and not coping. Either way failure and shame is generally attached, & for most this is a hard reality to contemplate. And what do we do with this new enlightened state of acceptance? How big will the changes need to be to render the acute stressors inert? Will we have to face our unhappiness and make any of the massive changes staring us in the face in order to re-set ourselves and begin to live harmoniously once again?

 

On this episode of The Travelling Wellness Show, Dr Elen and I discuss stress at length, and the how it creates a cascade of neuroendocrine events that ultimately ends in chronic inflammation, thyroid disturbances and a person out of control.

We highlight the most up-to-date testing methods which best pinpoint how well your body is dealing with the daily loads placed against it, and discuss at length why patients just like you are feeling increasingly angry and frustrated with the current medical regime which refuses to evolve.

This episode is brought to you by the PSE Adrenal Awareness Campaign - click on the download below to learn more about stress and adrenal dysfunction, and how a simple test can highlight how stress is affecting you RIGHT NOW.

When you think of a personal trainer / gym trainer, what images does this conjure?

 

"I started out sweeping floors, selling memberships, repairing gym equipment and then I was offered the chance to teach classes. This is how it was when I started; you began at the bottom and worked your way up with on the job training"

-Shannan Ponton

Shannan's career began well over two decades ago; Before being a trainer was cool, and before entry to it's market place was simply a matter of dollars and a few quick weeks of entry-level education.

Shannan Ponton epitomises what it means to be a true 'Fitness Professional', and is a subtle reminder of what the industry was, versus what it has become. And this is no stab at the thousands of great trainers who motivate and direct their clients daily, more an indicator of what the industry has evolved into, and the areas in which it has failed in an effort to saturate the floors of a gym near you.

With 10 seasons of the highly successful Channel 10 hit TV series "The Biggest Loser" behind him, Shannon and Shannan reflect on the career that was, and Shannan's thoughts on weight loss, training, mindset and the struggle within.

As the industry continues to debate the answers to our obestity epidemic, Shannan talks about the very simple factors that allow the TV contestants to drop weight week after week. And while the scientific communities continue to argue over the pathogenesis of this insidious disease, Shannan and his team just keep getting results for each and every participant for every year that the show screens.

But behind the celebrity is always a normal person with their own unique struggles and life lessons. Learn how Shannan deals with all the normal cravings, time constraints and daily life issues as us all, and what it is that has made him a household name.

I was fortunate to hang out with Shannan in his Sydney home, and talk casually about life, love and family. He's an amazing dad who is happier hanging out at the local skate park with his son, rather than seeking attention via public displays at known paparazzi haunts. He's also a committed husband, and the energy between Shannan and his wife is genuine and infective.

I think that so much of who and what Shannan is will completely resonate with every listener, and motivate you to get more out of every day.

Have you ever dreamed of just packing up and leaving the life you currently lead? Well so did I, and so I did....

For 12 months now, I have travelled Australia to combine with my many and varied health colleagues, to create a series of stories that would both inspire and empower change within my audience.

After a 16 year full-time clinical career, my wife Michelle & I decided that a new phase to our journey would begin, as we literally shut up shop & loaded our three young children into a caravan for the journey of a lifetime around Australia.

And where would we go?? Wherever the best stories would be told.

And so The Travelling Wellness Show began.

 

 

I've been in the Health, Fitness & Wellness game for a very long time now, and contributed to the industries in a variety of ways, everything from supplement manufacture & wholesale, right through to the clinical and retail arms. People are my life, and health is my vehicle to create change.

 

Somewhere along the line though, full-time clinical work burnt me out and left me tired and uninspired. Life was more a series of day to day obligations, and even though I still loved my work and those I served, my desire wasn't there. I wasn't playing the game that I always dreamed of, and the efforts rendered over 16 years of full time work had only aided 60,000 people. Such is the reality of the 1:1 process, and every clinician understands this.

The Travelling Wellness Show was simply my way to give back to a broader audience, and to collaborate with other great minds who understand the often misunderstood subjects of health that hold the key to true transcendence.

This episode was recorded due to listener request, as people seem to fantisize with the notion of escaping reality. And in the words of Steve Jobs I leave you with this..

There is so much noise in the fitness industry nowadays, with so many available movement patterns that the lay person simply gets caught up amongst the noise when it comes to making a decision about what's best for them.

Nothing can be hardcore enough for the consumer either, as movements like CrossFit literally 'forge elite fitness' for average mums and dads, making elite level training protocols readily available to anyone willing to participate. Then we have bodybuilding / physique training which has stood the test of time for sure, and continues to inspire its active participants, followed by the myriad of breakout franchises like F45 which simply provides a 'no thought needed' environment for people who enjoy going through the motions but don't aspire to the likes of CrossFit. In so many ways, we are spoilt with choice as consumers, but with choice comes disappointment and with disappointment comes complacency.

Until now, if hardcore training programs were too all-encompassing for an individual, or too much stress on the body for people under enormous daily stress, the only real options have been our yin focused cousins like yoga and pilates. World's apart!

10 years ago program founder and educator Nathan Helberg found himself in the same boat as everyone else, as he struggled to maintain physical function and mobility on a traditional bodybuilding regime. In his words, Isolation movements had left him 'vulnerable' and in need of change.

On this episode we explore the training system which is ZUU, through the eyes of two of its most experienced devotees. Two people who have experienced the multifactorial benefits that ZUU provides, and have fully embraced it as an important part of their lives. For Luke Bishara, ZUU frankly changed his life and provided much needed direction. For Dirk Gardner it became a philosophy by which to live. For both boys though it is the #truth, and a tool for doing good within communiites & reconnecting people to themselves and each other.

I call these lads good blokes. Nathan Helberg calls them his #generalz

Enjoy the show,

I first met Dave Tabain in 2014 and must admit, I didn't know what to make of him.

At first glance I saw a tall, suave, fast-talker who I learned had a knack of popping up everywhere! Feeling more like a groupie, I was honestly enthralled and instantly attracted to this character that I could't quite put into words.

Growing up in a very small country town, Dave basically was void of filters, and simply wore his heart on his sleeve. I loved this; someone who just said shit as it was, with zero fuss or bullshit. He simply wanted to positively influence people's lives.

 

Just ask anyone around you, and the chances are that they know who Dave Tabain is, or have heard his name around the traps. And his currency I hear you ask?? Authenticity, life experience, passion & an early love of the Kettlebell. Simple.

And in reality that is more than enough. More than was necessary, for each of those features he has in spades. Authentic to a fault, embarrassingly so. Life experience that he doesn't deny, starting with early academic failings and familial conditioning that he saw through. Passion in droves; for life, for love, for movement. And the kettlebell, wow! A cannonball with a handle that Dave saw as his way out of the small town he was raised in. Dave made that device his bitch, and went on to win multiple international back-to-back world records .

Anyway that's enough from me. Push play and be inspired by a bloke just like you and me, who decided early in life that more wasn't going to be enough.

As the age of connectivity continues to throw reality in our faces, the world seems to be going mad for everything cruelty free. We've all seen the images of animal slaughter & the often inhumane processing standards that serve food up onto our daily plate. And with awareness comes responsibility, and with responsibility we must question sustainability for the good of the planet.

For Episode 9, we chew the fat with two guys who are industry leaders in the world of plant based living, and observe the cause and effect of their individual decisions.

Sel from BSKT and COCOWHIP has created a business model around his lifestyle and it's paying handsomely, as consumers reap the rewards of wholesome, tasty and sustainable food products.

Jason Clarke from Brisbane based performance centre Perform 360 however, is living proof that a move to plant based living is possible for an athlete. A fact that many condemn as unachievable.

So it's time to open your mind to what most consider incomprehensible, while we learn from two guys who seem to be doing just fine without animals in their lives.

We live in hard times, this is undeniable. Now, more than every before, people are struggling in ways that aren't always easy to explain, nor accept.

As we continue to blur the lines of acceptable living, the daily pressures to be everything to everyone have effectively altered the ways in which our bodies respond to stress. New diseases & the dramatic rise of others are a case in point that shit needs to change. But where does change begin & what would that feel like?

Mid 2015, professional athlete Matt Murphy found himself with big questions to ask as his ability to focus and perform took a massive dive. It's funny how life sometimes throws such large curve balls that it literally forces our hand. Forces the next move, and ultimately sets us up for the next phase.

Adrenal dysfunction is a very real and diagnosable state of ill-health which feels much worse than it sounds. This all-encompassing state of anguish is literally a life changer that many people never fully recover from.

This is the first of many real life case studies which demonstrates the amazing opportunity that sits just beneath your own discomfort, and how ultimately adaptation always reveals a new light.

What does one do when the doctors tell you that everything is OK, despite the fact that you know if your gut that you're actually not OK at all? What is OK anyway?

Is health simply the absence of pathology as revealed via laboratory tests, or does our health encompass much more? Attached you will find the PSE Supplements Adrenal Awareness Campaign which fully outlines Adrenal Dysfunction & all it entails; the how, the why & the what can all be found by downloading the report.

As the world finally wakes us to the subjective concept of wellbeing, I leave you with this podcast.

11 years ago Anthony Mundine closed the door on a rivalry that had been brewing for a very long time. And for 11 years, Danny green has dreamed of redemption, a dream that came into form on Friday night when he beat Mundine in a unanimous points decision.

As boxing often goes though, the win didn't come without its share of controversy, as Mundine was on the receiving end of a suspect score card where a single judge scored the contest a 98/90 in Green's favour.

 

On this episode, PSE supplements owner Shannon Brenton talks directly to the man himself to get his thoughts, feelings & considerations of the event that was.

Choc happily answers fan questions and the almighty one on everyone's lips surrounding his probable retirement. He also gives his take on 'that punch'!

Nutrition, supplementation, fight prep, religion, business and legacy are all covered here, so take a listen and make your own mind up about the man you've always loved to hate.

If you, or someone you know have ever purchased a protein supplement or pre-workout, chances are that you have put a dollar or two in the till of a Mass Nutrition store.

 

 

In 2014, these were the kind of headlines that graced the business review pages. Within only 18 months however, journalists began reporting on what appeared to be an entirely different person completely

 

 

Luke "Mass" McNally appeared to have it all, before his personal life took major turns & his empire subsequently  began tumbling around him.

Now, Luke is broke & has stood down as the CEO of his own company, due to the damage that his life choices placed upon his business and business partners.

With time though comes clarity, and there isn't a whole bunch that will keep Luke down. From the comfort of his lounge in Melbourne, and with the support of his partner Evelyn, we get the chance to hear Luke's side of this whirlwind story.

From champion bodybuilder to acclaimed business owner, this is the story of a bloke who only ever wanted to play the drums and fight fires; both of which he also did to success.

"I never enjoyed the business side whatsoever; I just wanted to help people"

-Luke McNally

While it is no secret that there are two sides of Luke McNally, his passion for helping others, and skill of supplement formulation will be what he is ultimately remembered for. As this podcast reveals, it is exactly this that Luke wants to get back to as he learns some life lessons the hard way. 

And strangely beneath it all, we reveal a sensitive side to Luke that isn't necessarily obvious upon first impression; for what lies inside the bodybuilder & under all the tattoo's, is simply a dad who pynes for a reconnection with the little lady in his life.

As anyone touched by cancer will tell you, the "C" word normally always conjures up adjectives which best describe the end...

A Cancer diagnosis will pull on the mortal coil of not just the victim, but everyone around them, perhaps more significantly than any other disease will. The fight for life forces a process of critical evaluation unlike any other, as the multifactorial challenges of cancer treatment insist that no rock is left unturned.

In Episode 4, PSE supplements owner Shannon Brenton has a very real talk with a colleague who not only treats cancer in others, but has also felt its full wrath. 

 

"I still had heaps of energy, and really none of the symptoms which were linked to cancer. My bloods were clear and I had no cancer markers"

- Katrina Ellis

 

Katrina Ellis's story is nothing short of inspirational. After being diagnosed with a rare & generally fatal form of cancer, Katrina started the very real process of fighting for her own life. This is a tale of shock and disbelief, and the tenacity of one woman who wasn't ready to die.

 

"You aren't going to live unless we do super intense chemotherapy with you"

- Diagnosing doctor.

 

Listen and learn as Katrina proves the doctors wrong!

Ladies and gents, I bring you Katrina Ellis

Much love

For Episode 3, PSE supplements boss Shannon Brenton heads over to the Medical Sanctuary to speak with holistic GP & Obstetric Surgeon, Dr Elen ApThomas. 

This podcast begins with an overview of the role of the General Practitioner in modern times, before launching into the prime discussion of the Gut/Brain axis; The very complexed neuro-hormonal communication system, which is ultimately responsible for keeping your body in a balanced state. Shannon & Elen drill down on how this bio-directional system affects you via its integrated web of neuroendocrine, immunological, microbial and primary digestive and excretory actions.

How stress affects you, the importance of a healthy liver, the role of the gut microbiome, Leakey Gut Syndrome, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), and much much more are all discussed right here.

 

 

Dr Elen is a very authentic and dear friend, not afraid to call a spade a spade. Her dedication to the truth is what attracts me to her, and her willingness to think outside the square is what cements her in the top percentile of medical practitioners really making a difference.

Please enjoy the show

With love,

Shannon...

“ People talk about steroids; Steroids are a non issue when compared with pharmaceutical drugs in sport. There are guys in every club who should be in drug rehab"

-Keegan Smith

 

After a few years as the Head of Strength with the prized NRL team the Sydney Roosters, Keegan chose to leave the big smoke for the Byron Bay hinterlands where he birthed the Real Movement Project; a movement & lifestyle legacy which indirectly points a massive finger at the fitness industry which continues to drown its followers with all the usual commercial bullshit. Keegan & his disciples have ultimately revisited the basic fundamentals of movement, and focused on movement as a functional tool for personal progression.

 

This podcast explores life through the eyes of a man who chooses to question it. 

The how, why & what of movement, & all it entails & affects are covered here, so stop reading & start listening!

Enjoy, 

Shannon...

I never had to ask Danny for more; the best athletes are always the ones that I ask to do less”

-Angelo Hyder

 

Behind every great champion stands the coaches who direct & empower them; ultimately making success a possibility.

As the saga for Australian boxing supremacy continues, Shannon hangs out with renowned boxing coach & Danny Green’s corner man, Angelo Hyder.

In a world where good & great are often differentiated by the 1%er’s, Shannon & Angelo explore the key contributing factors which separate the greatest athletes from the rest of the pack.

 

 

From the comfort of the caravan, we tune in on the observations of a man who has worked with the best of the best, not only in this country, but abroad as well.

Better still, Angelo addresses the white elephant in the room; What does the green camp really think of Anthony ‘the man’ Mundine, and does he stand a chance against Danny Green in their much anticipated rematch set for February 2017, in Adelaide South Australia.

All fight hype aside though, this podcast provides very real insight into how far a champ will go to turn their dreams into reality; the sacrifices, the brutal training regimes & the endless laser focus on a destiny not yet realised.
