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.

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.

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

Let’s do this.

Calisthenics is becoming increasingly popular, and it's likely you are already doing bits of it, like push-ups or pull-ups. Or maybe, like me, you have ventured to more advanced methods like the human flag. And if you can do the flag, you're AWESOME.

So Ashley is here to break down what is calisthenics, the advantages and disadvantages, where to start, his ideal beginner programme and the quipment you might want to use.
