#46. MATT JONES - Building a strong and resilient Mindset in the face of adversity
Back for the 3rd time on the show, I chat with my good friend Matt Jones about how to build a strong and resilient mindset so you can not only stay mentally healthy and strong, but thrive in life and athletic performance.  At age 15, Matt Jones broke his neck in an horrific BMX racing accident. He awoke in hospital with no memory of the crash or the weeks prior, at that point the doctors didn’t know whether he would ever walk or move his arms again. The risk and fear of permanent brain damage was also very real. Luckily for Matt his spinal cord was intact and the swelling in his skull reduced. Surgeons performed a bone graft and inserted a metal plate into his neck and the surgery was a great success. Matt's diverse experience in life and his profession makes him the perfect person to talk to. He has competed at an elite level as a professional athlete, he's provided strength and conditioning coaching to elite athletes, law enforcement and military, chronic back sufferers, teaches Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and taught self defence principles to people like you and me. We talk about perspective, managing social media, dealing with external and internal pressure and managing mindset through injury.  This episode is a deep dive into what it means to have a healthy mindset and how you can change your perspective for mental and physical wellbeing.

#32. HAYLEY TALBOT - Solo Kayaking the Clarence River with a Beginners Mindset
She had never kayaked in her life, but decided she was going to solo kayak the 400km Clarence River. Unassisted. And she did.  A 2 year preparation, in May 2017 she was the first person to solo kayak the Clarence River. Some stretches of the  river said to be "un-passable".   We talk about the preparation and what it took to become not only physically and mentally fit but how to be fully self reliant. She learnt bush survival, navigation, how to hunt and trap, how to forage, and learn the medicinal uses of plants. Honing her skills with a healthy respect for the land, river, local communities and her family. This 14 day journey had setbacks right from the beginning but Hayley's thought process, rationalisation and pure drive to accomplish this massive task is not only inspiring, it truly lifts the veil on all things "impossible", because as she found out on her journey, there are no ceilings.

#31 JACKIE TANN - What happens when we keep ignoring our body's messages
I decided to start season 2 with my story, because whilst we all like to put on a brave face and weather the storm, the reality is, something's gotta give. And it did for me and I'm slowly learning how to manage. Did I know all along that my actions and behaviours would result in this? I believe so, but I thought I had no choice. To keep going because I thought the consequences of stopping, taking a break, giving myself time, would mean everything would fall apart. Instead I slowly drove myself into the ground. I had to stop, because in the end my body gave me no choice. The reason I share my experience is two fold; 1. Because this story of working so hard that we forget about ourselves, about our own health and our own needs is all too common, and that you too, need to take stock of your health, wellbeing and self care. 2. I wanted to give you some insight into who I am and where I started. It's a very condensed version of my career but my passion has always been to help others.  I believe our body's are truly incredible. Our ability to heal, adapt and evolve is extraordinary.  Whilst I believe this to be true, nor do I want to be insensitive to those dealing with terminal diseases.  This Podcast is not about false hope but about learning what we are capable of within our control. Nor is this podcast a replacement for medical advice . Want to get in touch with me? Here's how: Instagram; @jackietann_rmt Email:

Ange's positivity  in herself, her health, life and business would make you think she won the lottery.  But in her early 30's she was diagnosed with 2 chronic conditions, Hashimoto’s Disease (when your immune system attacks your thyroid and it stops producing hormones) and Fibromyalgia (a condition that causes pain in the muscles and bones, along with fatigue and poor sleep).  Wanting to educate herself in her conditions and take ownership of her life, she did extensive research and made health and wellness her number one priority.  But her next health challenge would prove to be her biggest. Ange was diagnosed with severe dilated cardiomyopathy (a disease of the heart muscle, where the heart cannot pump blood as well as it should), putting her at risk of needing an automated external defibrillator (AED) or, potentially, a heart transplant. An incredible woman with a zest for life despite her challenges.

#23. INGRID NIELSEN- How exercise impacts "irreversible" diseases...
At 73, Ingrid Nielsen is in the fittest and strongest shape of her life.  When you hear her talk about her training, you'd be forgiven to think she's been training her whole life, but Ingrid only started running at 67,  ran a half marathon 6 months later and 2 years after that, at 68, she ran her first marathon.  If that weren't impressive enough already, Ingrid has the most incredible life story, having grown up in Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa, Was a nun from the ages of 16-21, studied medicine, married an actor, divorced said actor 3 kids later, became a forensic pathologist, emigrated to Australia , became a Psychiatrist and opened a private practice at 45 to which she burnt herself out at 55.  She took a year off, went back to practice and slowly started to realise the life she was living wasn't sustainable..... If you think you're too old to start a new life, you're not. If you're think you're too old to start exercising, you're not. If you think you can't, you can..... and Ingrid is the perfect example.
