I’ve always loved sports and training.
From coaching and playing football to completing triathlons to weight training. I love it.
However, as my life progressed, work took over and I became extremely busy leading global organisations. In my personal life, I was building a family with a wife and two kids. I was also managing the added responsibilities that came with it.
This is life and I felt I was handling it ok. I wasn't unhappy and always considered myself fortunate to have a career and family. However, I would always struggle to find a balance between my professional and personal life as well as my overall health and well-being. I would find myself yo-yo-ing between working on one priority and then letting one slip. The phrase “spinning plates” comes to mind.
This wasn’t ideal for me, but I made it work.
Choosing to focus on goal-orientated physical challenges (triathlons, races, weights) to take care of my physical well-being.
My wife, Clare, and I found out our eldest daughter has a disability which will have a profound impact on her life.
I was worried about my daughter’s life and future and the extra financial concerns that came along with it. I was experiencing more anxiety than I ever had before.
It was at this moment I started to reflect and pay attention to my life and what was happening in and around it. I had to change.
My lightbulb moment happened when I started to learn more about the tangible benefits of health and fitness. I invested in the best coaches and nutrition experts to teach me, but something was missing. I couldn't find what I was looking for.
I returned to education, gained my qualifications, and built my own philosophy and methodology.
TIME was born.
I use TIME to help people become happier through 1-2-1 coaching and knowledge sharing. It’s now expanded into other areas of wellness investments including the Time Physiotherapy & Wellness Centre.
My story continues and yours does too. If you’ve made it this far, I think it’s time to talk.
