What is your biggest fear that you have?
No, I’m not talking about snakes or spiders…although these fears can be pretty big.
Where I grew up the spiders and snakes tend to kill you, but this is not what I am talking about.
What is your biggest fear about you and your body?
This is a kinda personal question. So let me share one of mine.
I was always a skinny kid at school.
I remember as a teenager, wearing jumpers on hot days in Australia, being too embarrassed to take it off because of my skinny arms.
I thought that the girls would laugh at me.
So instead, I overheated and spent the summers all sweaty…nice!
So what did I do?
I started to read any magazines about weight training I could get my hands on. At this point it was Muscle and Fitness, the only fitness magazine in a small country town in Australia I could find.
For the next few years, every birthday and Christmas present was something to do with weights or fitness.
I built up a handy little home gym on my back veranda and I trained.
When I got home from school, I did all of my chores, then I would lift weights.
At first it was all about doing bicep curls, bicep curls and more bicep curls. But then as I read more and learnt more, it was about the whole body. Then progressing onto specific weights for sports.
As I learnt more and trained more, my confidence improved and I was no longer wearing those jumpers on those hot summer days.
And so began my career in the fitness industry. I learnt that through exercise and training you have the amazing ability to shape and change your body. That is when I started to help other people.
I started to write programme after programme for friends and family members.
By the way I was only thirteen…
But by facing up to my fears and doing something about it, I changed.
