  • workers hard.

  • You can push yourself to limits.

  • No one just turns up to.

  • Jim is actually animal.

  • You've got to develop it.

  • Having that self believe that you can achieve anything if you if you work towards it and you didn't get a lot of time, you can achieve anything you want you want achieve in life.

  • I was very overweight.

  • I was very self conscious.

  • Didn't like the way I look.

  • I hated exercise.

  • I'd have McDonald's four or five times a week.

  • Remember, I'd go to KFC, Ammon, order family bucket of KFC and eat all the skin and leave all the chicken.

  • Yeah, I just literally love junk food.

  • I have to sacrifice going out for meals with friends because I want to stay on my nutrition track.

  • I've gotta sacrifice just going to a friend's house because I might have to get in bed for a certain time.

  • And so I get my nine hour sleeps and I can train the next day.

  • I've gotta train 4.5 hours, four hours a day on that takes a lot of sacrifice payable.

  • Teoh be in the right condition to be able to do that belief is something that is so important.

  • I've always had a very strong belief that I can one day complete the CrossFit games.

  • Police Lucas, Khobar.

  • Exact George.

  • Yes.

  • Yeah, yeah.

  • Well, failure is something everyone goes through.

  • I've been through lots of failures in my cross it career.

  • One was last year.

  • I was very close.

  • Thio qualifying for the CrossFit games last year.

  • And there's one worker that cost me that spot.

  • Everyone's gonna failures, but it's how you learn from how you progress on that.

  • That makes a difference.

  • So you should never be scared of failure.

  • You just gotta willing to learn from from the failures that you have in life.

  • You never wanna be last, anything you do.

  • But I think that's a natural part of life, and you're gonna come last in in certain aspects of life.

  • But I think you can learn a lot from coming last in in anything and you've got to use use the unknown from it.

  • Remember, lots of times at school, if we have swimming lessons are trying fake.

  • I had a cold or something, so I didn't have to go through and take my top off.

  • I remember a lot of times being at home.

  • If my parents had friends round, I'd always run upstairs and just kind of hideaway if I had my top, because I was so embarrassed of how I looked very overweight, not confident in my own body.

  • Remember, my dad was trying to get me to lose weight for many years.

  • Andi, my mom was always like, Oh, he's fine.

  • He's perfect, like never do anything wrong in my mom's eyes on.

  • Then my dad said, We'll give you a goal to work towards, and if you do, it will get you the PlayStation two that you've always wanted.

  • So I really wanted to place into other times.

  • Is that right?

  • I'm just gonna eat a little bit less junk, Andi.

  • I reckon the weight will drop off.

  • So after the after a month, we weighed myself loss and weight, comment how much weight I lost, but I felt really good and proud of myself.

  • It was the first time I'd ever to set a goal on, then work towards and achieved it.

  • I was starting toe like the way I looked because I looked a little bit less overweight, so I was wearing different clothes.

  • I was gonna live it more confident my body.

  • So that was like the kick start to my fitness journey.

  • Yeah, really important toe set goals put things in place to achieve those goals and then take them along the way.

  • I think once you achieve the little goals, it really gives you a massive, confident boost.

  • It keeps you motivated on it makes you feel extremely proud.

  • And it doesn't let you get stale because you always achieving a goal, feeling great about yourself and then work towards next goal.

  • I'll put markers that I made me towards a tick off, and it's just it's just a little little mental trick that if you're doing a 10 round workout, 10 round seems a lot and you think about do 10 rounds, this workout is gonna take forever.

  • But if if you just take one round a time, do one round to get off, then I'm just thinking about next round to get off.

  • You kind of breaking a workout down instead of just seen it as a 10 round kind of the whole workout.

  • So momentous.

  • It's a lot easier.

  • I see it.

  • Everyone is Thio, make sure enjoy the process and to run your own race.

  • So I mean by that is when I was on my fitness journey on to lose in the way I lost it.

  • It was a long process, but that was right for me that someone might see me doing crazy.

  • My ring muscle ups doing them out of volume.

  • I'm doing every single day, twice a day and they might want to jump into that straight away.

  • Whereas that's been an eight year process for me to be able to get to that point, you're just seeing the end result of eight years of hard work, and I always just say, You've got to run your own race.

  • I've been doing this for eight years.

  • I could never have done this.

  • Eight years ago, I had to build it to this workload.

  • I'm about to get my body condition to it.

  • I didn't just jump straight into it is taken 78 years.

  • You've gotta run your own race.

  • You've got to be willing to put the time into the process day in, day out.

  • Even if you're doing pull up instead of muscle, that that doesn't matter.

  • you just know one day you'll build up to that level that I'm at on.

  • Did you gotta, most importantly, enjoy the process and make sure you're doing it for the right reasons.

  • So on my fitness journey, PlayStation two was what first got me into it, and that was that first goal that work towards.

  • But I didn't really get into the fitness center and really start enjoying it until I want to do it for myself.

  • So that external goal was great.

  • But once I got it, are kind of I could have easily just said, I'm gonna go back to eating again because I needed something else, someone to give me to work towards right.

  • Some people are just born with a strong mentality, but then it's also something you can you can develop throughout your career.

  • So I definitely wasn't as mentally strong as I am now.

  • Seven years ago, just because that everyday pursuit of coming into the gym working hard, you can push yourself to limits.

  • That resilience and strong mindset is definitely something you can you can work on on.

  • I think it's an element of fitness that I think a lot of people don't focus too much on because you could have exactly the same athletes fitness.

  • Why strength wise?

  • But if one's mentally stronger and willing to go into those dark places, they're gonna do better across it than the other one.

  • So it's definitely something you should focus on, and you should spend time developing that strong mindset.

  • And it's just that mental strength to be able to keep pushing every single time you come into the gym and not letting yourself slack during your sessions.

  • So I could easily come into the gym picking easy rep scheme, completed super easy and then go home and carry on like that.

  • Whereas me mentally I'm always trying toe progress and we're trying to push my limits, always have to do an extra reps somewhere or do something a little bit faster on.

  • I think that that's just that's built inside me.

  • That definitely helps with in CrossFit and definitely helps you go to those dark places.

  • But it's definitely developed over the years, so it's definitely something you can work on.

  • No one just turns up.

  • The gym is absolutely animal.

  • You've got to develop it, and that's the that goes to the same with your mental attitude as well.

  • Oh, shoot for the moon because even if you miss, you'll be amongst the stars.

  • So I remember having that on my goes board and that's me means aim.

  • Aim so high that even if you don't get to that point, you've achieved so much getting to that point.

  • So if some people are quite scared to aim high and they just sit low goals because they just wanna make sure 100% they achieve it, then they'll achieve it.

  • But then they could have missed out on so many other areas in life for so many of the opportunities because they were a bit scared.

  • Aim that high because they might have achieved it.

  • So I've always been like I said in 2013 when I first saw the CrossFit games straight away, I said, I want to compete across of games, whereas a lot of people could have said right.

  • I just want to compete a local comp, but I wanted to set my goals so high that all that journey leading up to that would have led to so many different opportunities and so many career options on Guy was never scared.

  • Tiu set that goal and never scared to not achieve it.

  • Because I knew even if it didn't achieve it, there was lots of lots of goals I would have picked off along the journey s.

  • So I think that what there is always something that I lived live by.

  • I'm very fortunate.

  • Thio achieve the goal that I'll accept all those seven years ago.
