How to Make Every Day a New Year’s Day

At New Year, people make resolutions to improve their life, that of others and sometimes plans to take over the world. But why should they just be for New Year?

Loosing Everything and Gaining Freedom?
Lately I’ve become obsessed with serendipity. I say ‘lately’ because until a ew weeks ago, I didn’t believe in it – or perhaps more correctly, understand it. After all, how can something that is meant to be positive and by chance possible come from a professional career falling apart through no other reason that wrong place, wrong time or ten years and the recession, mixed with continuous injury and mixed with a very long spell of really, really bad luck.

Vitamin D; There Aint No Sunshine When It's Gone!

At TLA we're big on healthy eating not just to stay fit and feel like the best version of ourselves but also because eating healthy and exercising helps us to perform at our best mentally. Personally, I haven't been a big user of vitamin and mineral supplements before  - half because I don't like swallowing tablets and half because I didn't quite believe they would work.

Focus is such a huge part of everything we need to do and a fundamental part of performance coaching. Without focus, either we can't do what we have to do/want to or it will take 10 times longer. For athletes, it's one of the main skills they need to learn and apply every day of the week.
