This week on the Your Revolution Podcast, Jane Erbacher speaks with Strength & Conditioning coach Kevin Toonen.
Not your ordinary fitness professional, Kev has spent the last 20 years working in the military and still sits on the advisory board for the Tactical Strength & Conditioning Association here in Australia.
Combining his military background with an unquenchable thirst for learning, Kev has all the makings of both an incredible role model and a total game-changer. But that's not where it ends. Kevin is engaging, insightful, and undeniably passionate about creating better humans.
He's one of those people you meet that you know is going to change the world and I can't believe how lucky we are to have him on the podcast.
Incredibly proud and excited to present this episode which I hope you love listening to as much as I loved recording.
"The biggest risk is not taking any risk... In a world that changes really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks". Mark Zuckerberg.
We are constantly comparing ourselves and our lives with each other. Berating ourselves for not being as "good" as, as rich as, as fit as, as happy as seeming everybody else. (And occasionally comparing ourselves in terms of how much better we're doing than everybody else....)
You know what I'm talking about. We all do it. And why? Why do we put time, energy and focus into other peoples wins and losses rather than concentrating on what we have the power over: our lives.
Today we talk all about comfort zones. What is yours and why it is so important?
Just like we compare our wins and losses with those around us, all too often we compare our comfort zones with those around us. Just because something is hard for someone else and easy for us, that doesn't mean we've pushed any boundaries. Your comfort zone is something only you understand and have perspective on.
If you want more for your life, get after it. End of story.
This life is an adventure. It's our one opportunity and we get to live it once.
We all know this, but for some reason we hold ourselves back. We miss out. Live scared. Hide. But what is this fear really holding you back from?
There's something for all of us. Whether it's our bodies, our relationships or our careers, there's an area where we can do more, be more, feel more. But for some reason we don't. For some reason we just dip our toes in and hope for the best.
No matter what anybody tells you, hope won't lead to fulfilment. Action will. Getting uncomfortable. Learning. Growing. Improving. Living. persevering.
You've just got to have a little faith in you. Take that leap.
Meet Emily Hazell, the founder and owner of the incredible Serotonin Eatery, Education and Exercise here in Melbourne.
Named after the feel good hormone that makes us happy, Serotonin is not just a café, it’s a movement. A movement that is changing the way we understand food, health and our wellbeing.
Emily is the head serotonin dealer and at 28 years old and she is absolutely changing the way food is experienced. A lover of health and an advocate for wholesome nutrition, Emily has created a business like no other. Deeply connected to her core values, Emily has persisted in creating an experience for all of us that changes our understanding of how food, and exercise should leave us feeling.
Emily is an incredible game-changer whose determination, big dreams and attention to detail will leave us inspired to take a leap of faith in our own lives. Not to be missed and absolutely to be shared.
Thank you for sharing the happiness Emily.
