This one is heavy but bear with us 🧠 as it gives some real food for thought, particularly when it comes to learning a new sport, skill or movement within your existing sport. Skill Acquisition is the science that underpins movement learning and execution (more commonly termed motor learning and control) and, broadly speaking there are two skill acquisition options. Session-focussed improvement: where you or your coach will work through a session that has high reproducibility within it (competing the same movement over and over for rapid learning.) This type of learning can feel much easier as your brain isn’t...

Worry: feel or cause to feel anxious or troubled about actual or potential problems. Now, it’s fair to say that nearly all of us have been worrying more over the last 12 months collectively than at any other time in our lives. Worry about COVID, our loved ones, our job security, being stuck indoors for what feels like eternity, missing friends, family, work colleagues, finances, going to the gym! The list feels endless. And whilst worries, doubts, and anxieties are a normal part of life they have effects on not only our mental but also our physical health and even...
Passion: a strong and barely controllable emotion. Over the course of being locked down in 2020 and the start of 2021 (with no current end in-sight) lots of people have turned to their passions as much as they can to get them through these incredibly difficult and sometimes dark times.

Discipline: If you refer to an activity or situation as a discipline, you mean that, in order to be successful in it, you need to behave in a strictly controlled way and obey particular rules or standards. Now, we’re not sure about you but as much as we’re up and at ‘em by 0530 every morning, we certainly don’t spring out of bed each day raring to go. Sometimes we slowly roll out of the side of bed in search of the pre-workout we left out the night before. But one thing we do which transforms our productivity, particularly in...

We think it’s fair to say that in the past, physical exercise - particularly for those not necessarily interested in it has been deemed to be more vanity than anything else and whilst we couldn’t disagree more with this statement having competed in all manner of sports from rugby, weightlifting, marathons, Ironman Triathlons, CrossFit and pretty much everything in between, all in a pursuit to see what our body is physically and mentally capable of. 2020 and the start of 2021 have got us thinking, is it time to flip the script on what exercise and fitness mean to you?...
