Why 'REALPower'?

'If you are frequently unhappy for more than a few days at a time, you need to do something to change that.'

I've absolutely no idea where I remember seeing this quote, nor who said it, but it was the turning point; the lightbulb moment.  I was frequently unhappy; in a job I loved doing but for a company I hated being a part of. 
Safety kept me there. Regular income which wasn't bad and allowed my family to have most things they wanted. Probably what keeps most people tied to their jobs.

Why Change?
I was sick of being the guy who moans about going to work on a Monday; who clock watches for the last hour of the day (sometimes longer); who just wasn't happy.

So I did. I've always trained, I'm not a meat head by any stretch but I love being in the gym and feeling like I'm adding life to my years. At college I studied Sports Science but went down the path of teaching English to post 16 students.....it escalated quickly.
I still teach now, 2 days a week; like I said, I love it, but now I do it on my terms. This leaves me time to train people......and I REALLY love that!

The point I'm making is, don't feel there is only one way or the road you're on now is final. I try to get my athletes to think this way as it opens up the mind and that leads to anything being possible.
