It is exactly 3 years ago when I first visited Amsterdam, in the Netherlands.

It was only for the typical 3 day weekend break, but I knew instantly I had to return

Today marks my 8 weeks here and during this time I have met many incredible people, ate the most amazing food, had interesting conversations with many strangers and got lost on my explorations. And it’s these unique experiences that carve out our personality, our beliefs, our dreams, our well-being and general outlook on life.

It has given me the opportunity to understand who I am and be in control of how I shape that, so in this episode I share my 5 most important lesson from my experience in Amsterdam.

In our previous episode we discussed how procrastination is a killer for our productivity. To deal with this we started to put a framework into place to crush any procrastination you might have with getting started on your big tasks and projects.

There’s also another important factor to consider if you want to be at your most productive. That’s getting organized enough to do some of your best work.

If your life, or even just your stuff is all over the place then it’s going to be a problem for you. If you can’t find what you need, have no set routine or forget things frequently, you likely have an organization problem.

In this week's episode we take a look at common problems holding people back from getting organised and our simple system to getting better organised.

Welcome, my fellow HPL’ers to our High Performance Living Podcast.

If you’re wanting to look, feel and perform your best, then you’re in the right place, that’s exactly what we do here.

This week I’ve got an awesome interview for you, with my buddy Ollie ‘Ojay’ Matthews.

I’ve known Ollie for years now and we both share very similar stories of how our passion for nutrition and health came about, plus how we got involved in the fitness industry.

However, we chat a lot more than this, as Ollie dives into his core nutrition and training principles for the athletes he works with. Recently Ollie has worked with professional triathletes, and had 3 clients win an Iron man distance event on the same day in 2014. So I wanted to get him onto the show and chat some more on how he does this.

And if you do really enjoy this chat, then be sure to check out Episode 87 and 88 I recorded previously, which will help you even more with nutrition for strength, power and endurance sports.

I also wanted to give a quick shout out for any new personal trainers or coaches to this show. If you haven’t already tuned into my other podcast show, the FitPro Masterclass, then that’s well worth doing.

Plus, you should also download my ‘Become an Elite Level Coach’ Ebook, which is totally free. In it you’ll learn a proven nutrition coaching system, plus 6 much have templates and recourses.

What’s the value of starting your day well? In my experience, it’s an incredible way to achieve High Performance Living! Your first 90 minutes of each day should be all about YOU. It’s therefore about daily self-development where you are prioritizing YOU before anyone or anything else. You’re not being self-centered or uncaring to others by doing this, as you must ensure you are at your best if you are to help other people or do awesome work. This week's show will show you how.

Depending on who you listen to, or which article you read, ‘habit mastering’ can take anywhere from a single week right up to 3 months to incorporate the new habit into your life.

Based on my own experience of coaching hundreds of people regarding their nutrition and lifestyle habits, the 30 day mark generally sees the success of any habit change as long as the right strategy is used.

Changing a single habit should be easy, yet many people don’t know what feelings or responses to expect. They therefore aren’t prepared to overcome the mental and emotional challenges that are part of the process of implementing any new habit.

That’s because throughout this 30 day time frame, there are 3 distinctive phases that most people will probably go through, which all present their own challenges, emotions and potential roadblocks.

If you aren’t prepared for this, then changing your habits can be difficult and you might even give up as you don’t know how to overcome the problems. In this weeks show we break it all down for you, plus the 10 HPL nutrition cornerstones.

Welcome to the HPL Podcast! This Habit Mastery series has been created to help you truly understand how important your habits are to a healthy and lean body, while showing you the most essential nutrition habits you should be doing every day. Some people listening to this are just getting started with improving their nutrition, and don't need customisation information just yet, so here we will outline the basics first and leave the individualisation for later. Even those who consider themselves advanced would do well to review the basics first, even if it's just a refresher. In this habit series there is no mention of calories, food logging or complicated training plans - it's all about your habits. But please don't underestimate how effective this can be at changing your body, health and performance. I've been applying these habits to hundreds of clients for years now - testing them, experimenting with them, and modifying them until I had a system that could guarantee results in any client who uses it faithfully. Stick with this system and truly master the 10 HPL nutrition habits, and you too can see great success.

Every day we are being exposed to natural and man-made toxins, and the danger really is in the dosage. In toxic doses, all of these compounds can negatively affect human health.

Surprisingly, many of these toxins can be found in the everyday products we use such as plastic bottles, packaging, detergents, cosmetics and pesticides. Some of these toxins are already well known, like lead and mercury, but others exist too, like benzene and BPA.

While the use of some of these toxins is now regulated, many are still permitted and are widely found in our environment. It is therefore up to you to decrease your exposure to them as much as possible.

In this weeks episode Anna and Ru chat about how you can be more aware of your environment and what to do about it.

The words ‘detox’ or ‘detoxification’ get thrown around a lot these days but few people really know what these words actually mean.

It’s often a common word used by supplement companies and uneducated trainers to sell someone a supplement range or magic pill. For the majority of people, these are a waste of time and money.

Of course, that's not what we do here.

That’s because many fail to understand the detox system and how it actually works. There is no supplement or secret 'cleanse' that serves as the ‘Holy Grail’ to detoxification of the body.

Detoxification, with reference to human health, refers to your body’s ability to convert - or bio transform - waste products and toxins into non-toxic substances that can be excreted from the body.

The truth is we don’t need any starvation diets, hardcore fasting or expensive supplements in order to detox the body, as our bodies are already equipped with the best detox organs we can get – the liver and kidneys.

So in this week's show, I break down how to really detox your body and the true benefits you can expect from this.

Hello & welcome to the High Performance Living Podcast, this is episode 87, and today we are chatting all about Nutrition For Endurance Trainers.

You might be thinking that you’re not a endurance trainer, but here’s the thing, anyone participating in 30+ minutes of continuous activity is endurance training. Of course when this extends even longer, such as a marathon, this is considered ultra-endurance. Endurance fitness is therefore of huge importance to many people. 

So where Anna and I step in this week is to highlight why diet is a key factor for successful endurance performance, recovery and health. It’s a great show.

Before that I want to give a big shout out to the HPL community right now – it’s feeling strong – I love it. 

I really enjoyed getting your feedback on the show and all things HPL recently, and I’d love to know what you though of this weeks’ show too. Every week you’ll now find a brand new blog post on my website to accompany the podcast. It would be great to hear your feedback in the comments section of each show.

And of course, you can also check out the High Performance Living Programme there too. It’s for those who want to improve their nutrition, training and lifestyle, to look, feel and perform at their best. Again, that’s all found at

Welcome to the High Performance Living Podcast. This week Anna and I will be showing you how to boost your energy and metabolism, along with sharing some of the science as to how it works. 

We talk a lot about the body on the podcast, such as the digestive system, its role and how it works. What we must understand is that all of these components within the body exist to metabolise energy from the nutrients we eat.

Knowledge of the cellular machinery and metabolic pathways responsible for deriving energy from macronutrients once they reach the cells is important for us to understand. By knowing this information and how it all works together, we can really start individualise our diets.

Many of us have acquired bad nutritional habits, and we practise these every single day. By changing our daily daily bad habits for improved and healthy habits, the ‘numbers’ usually take care of themselves and impressive results can be achieved from this alone.

From experience there are a number of good habits that most people could do with forming, and then adhering to, every single day. So in this High Performance Living podcast, Anna Marsh and I dive into the importance of habits and how to ditch the bad ones and supercharge the good ones instead.

A cyclic ketogenic diet, or ‘carb cycling’, is a low carbohydrate diet with planned periods of moderate or high carbohydrate consumption.

This nutrition strategy has become a hot topic over the last number of years.

Carb cycling, like many of the modern protocols, goes against the traditional nutrition and dieting advice.

Tradition tells us that we can only build muscle or lose fat, and never at the same time. This is because we must maintain a calorie deficit to lose fat and a calorie surplus to build muscle.

Then carb cycling came along and was sold to us as an ultimate method for rapid fat loss while building muscle.

Carb cycling therefore goes against the typical advice of fitness professionals and has gained a lot of attention.

So in this week's show, Mike and I chat all things carb cycling and if it is right for you.
