Get Fit, Don’t Quit: Kelsey Wells’ No Fail Formula for Mind-Body Strength
Play • 33 min

If you’re a little slow off the mark - or not as fired up as usual about your workouts this year - well, that’s not exactly surprising, all things considered. But you don’t need us to tell you that regular exercise - what with all it’s mood-elevating, energy-stabilising powers is one thing that will help get you through this turbo bleak midwinter, like little else. So, how do you jumpstart a fitness regimen that’s going to support you - in mind and body - through this wild time and beyond? In today’s episode we’ve got one of the world’s most loved, lauded and refreshingly real trainers answering this question. Kelsey Wells rose to prominence in fitness circles as a power trainer on the Kayla Itsines-founded SWEAT app, and continues to share her practical yet compassionate approach to strength-based training with her near three million-strong community of followers. However, she’s been on a real journey where exercise is concerned - growing up, she never saw herself falling for workouts, and it was only after a spell of poor mental health drove her to begin taking care of her body that she truly fell in love with fitness. In today’s episode, Kelsey discusses her journey from exercise refusenik to global fitness star, as well as sharing the fitness and mindset fundamentals you need to start - or reinvigorate - a fitness journey. She answers: how do you get started; when should you train; for how long?; what mix of workouts will get you strong without adding too much bulk; what gym equipment is actually worth it - and, above all, how do you keep going?

In a world of uncertainty - the one thing you can control with Marisa Peer
My guest this week says we are all born feeling enough, with an innate sense of esteem and confidence. And our job if we want to live a fulfilled life, is to get back to that place where we are enough just as we are. In this episode, I’m talking about the power of the mind with Marisa Peer. She’s been named the UKs #1 therapist as voted by Tatler Magazine and has spent over three decades treating a client list that includes international superstars, CEOs, Royalty, and Olympic athletes. Her approach is known as Rapid Transformational Therapy. It’s a mind optimisation science that completely transforms a person’s way of thinking and therefore living - in just as little as 1 or 2 sessions. I have wanted to talk with Marisa for a long time, and this is an important time to have Marisa on the podcast. Right now there is a lot of uncertainty for parents, yet Marisa has some simple and transformative ways to use our mind to change our experience. I’m excited for you to hear this episode. We talk about: - the power of what we say to ourselves - simple ways to use our mind to change our experience - the way you feel about everything is based on just two things - how to speak to yourself - the three Ps to evaluate any situation - how can we give ourselves certainty - the power of rewards - the power of ‘I am enough’ As always, we continue the conversation over on Instagram, so come and join us there.
