you decide to enter The Ultimate Role Model Challenge?
I had let
myself go, and I was setting the wrong example and I wasn't practicing what I
was preaching and I had to step in to something that would scare me so much in
to making changes to my lifestyle.
actually told my clients if I didn't go through with it, I'd sell my business
because they didn't need another trainer who didn't do the work themselves.
There is already too many of them out there.
you want to inspire with your big reveal?
are in a similar situation to where I was at the time. I was as depressed as I
had ever been. I struggled most days to get out of bed to shower or even brush
my teeth let alone work, train and eat. It was horrible and I hated it, but I
also knew I was the only one who could change it. I knew I could, and I know
others can too.

the message you wanted to get across to your clients?
is possible no matter how low you are feeling to get out of the mess by taking
steps forward, no matter how big or small.
could give the previous "you" from six months ago one piece of
advice, what would it be?
with basic tasks as simple as just being honest with your coach (get a coach if
you don't have one). Even if the food record is just chocolate and chips. At
least you will have a starting point.
the main things you learnt/overcame during this challenge?
setting the example, others would stand up if they really wanted the
could do the challenge again, what would you do differently?
because even the mistakes happened for a reason and I will learn from them
(Putting himself in his clients' shoes has paid off for Shane)
something about you that no one knows (something you did, an obstacle you
the last six months, I haven't told many but I had bursitis in my left shoulder
which required a cortisone injection, I have suffered nerve damage in my
shoulder/neck/arm which led to some days not being able to feel my left hand as
well as a toe injury.
all still ongoing problems but I am thankful for the skills I am learning and
for having strong goals so I can keep training despite all of them.
Six months ago, I was at breaking point. Sleeping all day - only eating junk food - every excuse under the sun.
I contemplated ending my business at that point, because I hated being that person who was letting others down. So, I had to step up and I'm so thankful I reached out and was honest to my coaches and my partner, as they then were able to support me along the journey because I was willing to help myself.
Now, I am looking at expanding my business and venturing into a few unknowns, and it was purely because I started looking after myself and I invested time and money I didn't even have into changing who I was, which is helping me reap the rewards.
