We’re giving away FIVE packs of our protein powder as prizes for our favourite acts of kindness all this week 🙏 here’s what you have to do to be in with a shot: ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 1. Do something kind. It can be ANYTHING. Help someone in need, pick up litter in your neighbourhood, donate your time to a local good will project or just make someone you love smile. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 2.

If this world needs anything right now it is more kind people - so be one and let’s make a difference together! 💚

FLIP YOUR PERSPECTIVE 🙃 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ One of the things that sets an ordinary life apart from an extraordinary one is the ability to view the same situation from a different perspective. We all interface with the same world every day, so why is it that some people are happier, more fulfilled and more successful? More often than not, it is all about their perspective. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Imagine there are two (otherwise perfectly healthy) boys from the same town born with a rare gene that means they can’t ride a hoverboard. In a world filled with cars and public transport this usually isn’t too much of a problem - however in the town that they were born, cars are illegal and bicycles are too expensive. So everyone rides a hoverboard. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ With nothing in common with their local hoverboard-riding residents, the two boys grow up isolated from the other kids their age. One of the boys is so frustrated with this situation that he spends all of his time locked away indoors, angry at the world for the bad luck he was born with. But the other treats this very same luck as an opportunity - and opens the town’s first hoverboard repair shop. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ As everyone in town visits the shop for maintenance of their hoverboards, they realise what a great guy the shop owner really is. He gets invited to the town’s social gatherings and makes a group of friends he keeps for life. And he makes so much money repairing hoverboards, he eventually moves to the town next door where everyone rides unicycles. Here he meets the love of his life and lives happily ever after, enjoying long unicycle rides at sunset together every evening. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ The moral of the story is: we can’t control everything that happens in our lives, but we CAN control the way that we look at it. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ How many times can you see an opportunity where everyone else sees a problem? ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ How often can you be grateful when others are down in the dumps? ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ These small shifts in perspective are the keys that will create a life of value and a life worth living. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ How would your life be different if you flipped your perspective today? ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 📸 @muscle_up_jarvis

MOMENTUM 👇 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Ask any runner on a cold and rainy morning what the hardest part of their workout is going to be today... and you’ll always get the same response. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ The hardest part is not mile 1. Or even mile 7. It’s getting out of bed, lacing up their shoes and heading out the door. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ But as soon as their foot first hits the pavement they’ve already done the hardest part... ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ They’re out. They’re moving. They have the momentum. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Same goes for the person first getting started on a healthy diet. The hardest part is that FIRST meal. Every meal after that gets easier as they build momentum and experience the benefits of their new lifestyle. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ These are both examples of positive momentum. But for most people, the momentum in their life is pulling them in the opposite direction... ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Think about how the momentum of a stressful day at work carries into your home life. You come through the front door and start an argument with your family, even though you love them and just want them to be happy. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Or how the momentum of a bad food choice sends your whole diet spiralling out of control. Fuck it, pizza tastes too good, I’ll get back on the wagon on Monday. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Wherever we are in life, one of the biggest forces that is driving us is MOMENTUM. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ So start with one workout. Kick it off with just ONE healthy meal. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ And watch how fast the momentum builds. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 📷 @kylemfraser  #fortheliving 

HIGH VOLUME FOR FAT LOSS 🥦 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ One of the biggest myths in fitness is that we have to eat ultra small portions in order to lose fat! ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Spoiler alert: this is BAD advice 🚫 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ In fact, one of the BEST things you can do to promote HEALTHY + SUSTAINABLE fat loss is to eat MORE of the right foods! ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Piling your plate with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables is the number one way to regulate our appetite and make it EASY to lose fat. These foods are high in water and fibre, helping to keep you full and energised for HOURS after eating 🌱 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ When we restrict our portion sizes our bodies hunger signals go into overdrive 😩 making it almost impossible to stay on track! ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ However when we focus on eating an ABUNDANCE of wholesome and nutrient dense foods we can stay full and satisfied for much longer periods of time 👌 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ And here’s the best part of all.. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Following a plant based diet is the easiest way to eat HUGE portions of high volume, high fibre and high nutrient content foods without packing in excess calories! ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Plus, eating this way is so delicious you won’t feel like you’re missing out on anything at all 😍 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Who else loves high volume eating? 🙌 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 📷 @plantbased_food_and_travel 

THE RIPPLE EFFECT 🌀 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Our thoughts and actions are like stones dropped in a pond, creating ripples that travel outwards. If you think you can’t change the world... try paying a genuine compliment to the next person you meet, or calling a friend for no reason other than to tell them you love them. What happens next? ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ These small positive actions act like ripples that affect the lives of the people around you, and their re-actions in turn affect others. Something as simple as a smile positively impacts people you have never even met. Now imagine how many problems we would solve if we all focused on making these small, positive ripples every day? 🌊 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Everything you think, say or do is making an impact bigger than you can imagine, like a small splash creating ripples on the infinite ocean of humanity. We all have the power to make the world a better place simply by being better ourselves. Use it wisely 🤙

Veganuary might be over for another year but the plant based revolution is just beginning! 🌱 If this month was your first as a vegan, you have already saved an average of 33,000 gallons of water, 500kgs of grain and 30 animals lives... just by making a few simple changes to your plate! 👌 Now imagine what could happen if you multiplied that impact over a year, two years, or the rest of your life? 🤯 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Every time you eat a plant based meal you are casting a vote for a healthier, greener and more compassionate planet for us all to live on 🙏 and when you add all of these votes up we can quite literally change the world! Shout out to everyone making conscious choices for a brighter future 💚 whether you’re a vegan veteran or just getting started, we appreciate you more than you know! 👊🌿 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ P.S: who else spotted the photobomb? 🤣

The BIGGEST benefit of training?👇 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ It’s easy to focus on the the physical and aesthetic benefits of training, but the most important perk of them all can’t be tracked with a rep counter or a weighing scale! ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ The true benefit of training goes much deeper than what we see on the surface. Training teaches you to get out of your comfort zone. Training teaches you to deal with fatigue and pain. In turn you are forced to get fitter, stronger and more durable and both a physical AND mental level. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Through training the things that were once a struggle soon become insignificant. Fatigue becomes just another state. Discomfort becomes a challenge. Growth becomes a goal to be chased in all areas of our lives. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Yes of course you can grow physically stronger and healthier through training too. But these are just a few of the countless rewards. Train to be a better athlete and be a better human too. Train to grow both physically AND mentally. Train to show the world your true potential. Let’s get it! 🔥 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 📸 @brianturnerofficial
