question 1:
What was your reason to start the challenge?
I retired from playing rugby league 2 years ago due to injury and have used it as an excuse not to train to my full potential. I want be fit and healthy for my family and be able to run around with my children without feeling tired and drained, and I want to feel that sense of achievement again like i did when playing footy.
question 2:
What did you like most about the challenge?
Although the challenge overall was tough, it was a simple process to follow. There is no thinking involved and you just need to trust the process.
question 3:
What was the hardest thing about your challenge?
Cardio and eating breakfast. I've always been one to "say no to cardio!" Until starting the challenge I always believed that you would get enough out of weight training alone. I'd never eat breakfast as I was never a morning person let alone eat oats or yoghurt. Again I just had to trust the process and do what "success demanded!"
question 4:
What impact has the challenge had on your life?
I have more energy from the moment I wake up to the moment I go to bed. I have more of a positive outlook on life, not just fitness. My eldest daughter actually has that look of pride in her eyes when she looks at me and that's when i know I have made the right decision to turn my life around. I'm now a walking example of health and dedication to my family and friends. All my old footy injuries don't hurt as much anymore which allows me to be more active.
question 5:
What would you say to people who are thinking of doing the challenge?
Just do it! Tomorrow never comes. If you want to be the best version of yourself both physically and mentally then the challenge is the first step to take.
question 6:
Anything else you would like to tell us about the challenge?
I have loved every minute of the challenge. Before it i had not played rugby league for 2 years due to a career ending knee injury. I had nothing to train for and fell into a form of depression. I was miserable to be around for my family. I would be the one to suggest maccas for dinner because cooking was to hard. I would make up some crap excuse not to do something with the family because it was an effort. Now I'm the food conscious one making the right choices, offering to do the groceries and getting up early to make lunches for school and breakfast for the family. The challenge has given me the positive kick in the backside I haven't had for the past 2 years.
