Feed Your Awesome Machine (a.k.a FYAM) is built on my strong belief, as well as a whole lot of experience that anyone at almost any age, including you, can become the leanest and most energetic they’ve ever been…And most importantly, maintain it for life. Why’s that important? If you’ve got any real desire to live an extraordinary life that’s full of incredible experiences and achievements you’ll need two things: firstly, a lot of energy to power you through all those things you want to do and secondly, the confidence that a fit, toned and healthy body brings. The ultimate goal of FYAM is to help you achieve these goals so you’re fully geared up to live a truly awesome life of your own design.
What You’ll Learn To Do
First and foremost, the FYAM blog builds on the power of knowledge. It’s about showing you the best way to eat and the quickest, most effective ways to workout so you can craft the body and the life you want. It’s true, there’s a huge amount of info online about this very topic but the thing is, it’s like a jungle out there, and unless you’re an expert you’ll probably find it hard to beat a path through the confusion. One site tells you one thing while the other tells you the complete opposite, and all this contradictory info drives even the best of us to stalemate.
And while it’s true that there are times when the research doesn’t always paint the clearest of pictures about what is best for our bodies, in reality, most of it is actually pretty straightforward and simple to understand.
FYAM To The Rescue
Here, in the Feed Your Awesome Machine blog, you’ll find step by step actionable instructions that cut through the contradiction and confusion. It’s my mission to show you what really works based on both solid science, and the collective experiences of the hundreds of people I’ve had the pleasure of working with over the years.
But I’m sure you’re all well aware that knowing “what you should be doing” is not enough. You need to know “how” to do it. You need action steps that are crystal clear, motivating, and on a more practical note, realistic. That’s why I’ll take you step by step through the workouts, the recipes, the habits and everything else you need along the way.
How You’ll Learn To Think… And Act
“If change is hard, then you’re not doing it right.”
The reason why most people fail to change is not because they’re lazy, or somehow inferior. It’s simply because they don’t understand the powerful psychology behind the change process.
If you don’t understand this process, even a tiny change can feel like you’re pushing a huge rock up a steep hill. It feels pretty much impossible. Sure, you might muster enough mental will-power and fight the resistance for a short while, but before you know it, you’ve given up, slipped back into all your old dysfunctional habits and feeling worse than you did before you started. Sound familiar?
But it doesn’t need to be that hard. A big part of the FYAM philosophy is to show you how to think how to change the way you think, and what to do to make that change a whole lot less stressful.
Then, it’s about cultivating habits, because let’s face it, habits are pretty effortless! Think of brushing your teeth before bed, tying your shoelaces, driving your car – they’re all habits- they’re all easy and you barely need to think about them.
Now granted, a lot of our habits may not be ones we’re proud of. By mastering the FYAM Change Process, you’ll be able to rescript all those old habits you’re not so proud of into new, healthier habitsand best of all, these new habits will stick for the long haul. Now how’s that for personal power?
So in amongst all the how-to’s, the short and powerful workouts, and the delicious recipes, I’ll invite you to challenge the way you think, look hard at your personal attitudes and reflect on the way you see the world. It won’t be easy, but the rewards are priceless and it’ll be a whole heap of fun.
Who You’ll Meet Along The Way
Surrounding yourself with other positive, like-minded people is one of the best ways to keep you motivated and on track. But finding people who are that serious about living life to the max and who are willing to do what it takes to achieve it can be hard to find. And that’s the beauty of the internet. On the FYAM blog, you’ll find a growing community of passionate, positive people who like you, want a whole lot more from their life and their body and who right now, are taking action on everything they learn here.
So why not join in? Ask questions, share your experiences and ideas, and support one another as I guide you through everything you need to know to get the absolute most from your body, so you can get the most from your life.
What We Don’t Do
Now let me be clear about a few things from the outset! At FYAM, we DON’T DO crazy diets, long, time-wasting exercise regimes, magical supplements or for that matter, any other snake-oil hocus-pocus. And no, even though I’m constantly bombarded with messages about how people lose fat and tone up while following the FYAM philosophy, this is NOT a weight loss blog. But if you have got some kilo’s you want to shift make sure you stick around because everything you learn in the FYAM blog will help you achieve that. After all, if your focusing on fuelling your body properly and working out in the most efficient ways, you will slim down and tone up, because a slim toned body is just an inevitable side-effect of getting healthy.
But know this: FYAM is NOT dogma, it’s a life-style. And just for the record, I’m not an extremist and I’m definitely not a purist, and I don’t expect you to be either. That doesn’t mean, however, that this won’t be a challenge. It will, I guarantee you. But if you’re doing it right, you’re going to feel totally stimulated, empowered and in control every step of the way.
If you’re serious about this and really get involved and take action on what you learn here in the FYAM blog, it won’t be long before you start seeing some pretty impressive changes in your body, your energy and your mind. Before you know it, your body will be pumped up with so much juice and energy it’ll take you almost anywhere you’re truly determined to go.
And it’s all here, its all free, and it’s waiting for you. All you’ve got to do is step inside, gear up and come along for the ride.
SO…. YOU IN?
