Week 6 Newsletter

Time to stay focussed, we are so close!

The end goal is in sight!

You are all doing so well, you are well over half way and the end goal is in sight.
 

The next 2 weeks are the most challenging part of the programme so now is the time to focus. You have learnt a lot in the last 5 weeks, try to apply the lessons you have learnt and finish the second half strong. 

How do you keep yourself on track? Are you pushing too hard to the point where it feels unachievable? If so, ease up a little.
 

We also know that the programme takes a big step up over the next couple of weeks. Keep it up as we work through to the end.

Education

Focus

Coach Bevan has a podcast called Fitness Behaviour which attracts listeners from all over the world. In one of the shows he addresses how what we focus on can have a huge influence on whether a fitness experience will be positive or negative. Within in the show he introduces some tools to help people put their focus on the direction that they want to be heading towards. 

The show runs for around 40mins, the key content starts around 5mins into the show.
