I’ll start with why I started, and the obvious, should you ever attend a competition; it’s fucking fun!!
Biased yes, but strongman training is the most fun way to get strong and turn into an animal!
Believe me. I think the thought of doing strongman for a ‘purpose’ never crossed my mind, I saw logs, tyres and farmers carries and just thought “OATH! Let me get in on that”.
Little did I realise the benefits it would give not only to my body, but more importantly my mind.

What is holding you back?
I see it all the time and it kills me inside
Whether it is not being able to lockout a deadlift due to not wanting to perfect form and build the back strength up or hearing a fully grown man say no to training because he can’t afford the training fees at Royale Fitness (which is less than the slab of beer that he is trying to cut back on anyway)
Priotity Needs To Be In Health and Success, Not Beer and Cars Or Football
What I am talking about is people who avoid their weak areas and who are pulling the blindfold over their eyes when it comes to the things that they don’t enjoy and aren’t that good at.

So, you want to bench more?
Shane Getting After it
The bench press is either seen as the best or the worst upper body lift in the strength and fitness world depending on who you talk to

The main thing that I want to emphasize is that the bench like any lift is just a tool or weapon that we have access to, to get more jacked and less womanly.

This game of life can be a busy one
You always having to hustle your face off to keep your wife or girlfriend happy, your family happy, your clients happy and even the bloody tax man happy
So much shit to get done and so little time.
The first thing that I have done in the past and see ALL the time with the people inside my businesses is we cut out the things that make us great
We skip a few training sessions to catch up on a project
We skip out on meditation or floating because we ‘just don’t have the time’
We eat like shit
We even stop appreciating the ones we love
We literally stop growing as a person.
This NEEDS TO STOP
MY REVELATION in 2012
If I am not being or becoming the best version of myself, then my wife, my family, my clients and even the outsiders who just like to follow my stuff ALL SUFFER
I had this realization and since then I have studied, sought out, tested, created and built a series of daily and weekly non-negotiables that I will make sure are a part of my schedule
Here is the list below in no particular order

The fitness industry is a tough war ground to be in.

White Goodman kills it in his ‘Globo Gym’ but is 100% an asshole
It is getting out of control.

Let’s face it.
There are a heap of sub-par personal trainers or ‘S&C’ coaches out there in this beautiful fitness industry.
I have been blessed that I have been able to learn off and get around great coaches on a very regular basis (this isn’t cheap with both; my time or my money but it is 100% worth it).
I want to help the great coaches in this industry grow and stamp out the bullshit so that it gives us ALL a better reputation and more credibility.
