Favourite motivational quote: "When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be." - Lao Tzu

What advice would you give to someone who wants to achieve results like you?

Improving your mindset and attitude is just as important, if not more important, than improving your body, nutrition and exercise.  

If you don't really "want" it, it will be difficult. Creating permanent changes to your lifestyle and improving your environment gives you the best chance.

February 2015 - November 2016

In your opinion, what is the most important aspect of a transformation?

Consistency and mindset.  You have to be happy with the process, eager to improve, and consistently work at it.  

If you are hating the process, how are you going to continue it for the rest of your life?

What did you learn from this experience?

I have myself to thank for my successes, and I am accountable for my failures.  I answer to only one person: me.  

Nobody is going to do this for me, I have to put in the hard work myself.

Nick says: 

I have a history of being overweight and feeling very helpless about how to improve myself.  I went from frantically searching for magic answers, to giving up and not caring anymore because it was all too hard. 

It's been 5 years since I started my fitness journey, and even so many years later I still find myself learning new things all the time.  Not just the scientific theory or information about nutrition and exercise, but just general learning about myself and how I operate as a person day to day. 

The biggest challenge I think we face in our lives is identifying our bad habits and breaking them.  I know I still have bad habits I struggle with, even 5 years in. But this program has given me the tools with which to improve myself. 

Not only from a health and fitness perspective, but in other aspects of life. It affects your attitude and personality and it follows through to so many other things. It's made me a happier and more successful person, generally.

If you feel like it's getting too hard, or your progress is not fast enough, you're definitely not alone, I think we've all been there or are currently there. But it's true what they say, time and time again I have proved to myself that you just need to "trust the system".  It works. 

And the best part is, it works permanently if you're willing to work hard at it.
