Simon Says Personal Training (SSPT)

Is OUTDOOR FITNESS training based in Coolum Beach, on the Sunshine Coast, QLD.
utilises a huge variety of outdoor locations from Parks, Beaches, Stair Sets, Boardwalks, Mt Coolum and more!

SSPT is FUNCTIONAL FITNESS based around movements you use everyday that relates to your life.

SSPT is SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE, BASICS and is the motto I stand by.
Simple : Exercises that anyone can do.
Effective : That they are useful for YOU, based on the movements you will perform in day to day life.
Basics : Focusing on just the exercises that work, that have always worked, that cover all muscle groups and avoids giving you too many to do, that you’d become unmotivated.
Basic body weight strength exercises such as push ups, squats, tricep dips & lunges.
Basic core, stability exercises as plank holds, side planks, & balancing.
Basic cardio such as jogging, running, swimming, bike riding etc

SSPT is about EDUCATION, covering the WHYs of fitness & nutrition.
What exercises work.
How they work.
Why the work.
Fitness based on only what’s necessary for you, your purpose, as everyone is different. E.g Footballers train for football, are required to train to very high levels to last 90 minutes of high intensity games. But someone not playing competitive sport, wouldn’t need such tough workouts.
Nutrition being based, again, on your everyday needs. Food for function is what i preach, as some over indulge due to an emotional connection to it, rather than seeing it as only eating what’s necessary to power your body, keep it healthy, avoid sickness etc.

As far as myself, I have been a personal trainer since 2008, but also an avid football (soccer) player since the age of 6, and loved anything active such as surfing, skateboarding, sprinting & more, my entire life.

So you could say fitness, an active lifestyle and eating well, to maintain high energy levels for all of this, is a huge part of my life and why I chose to show all of you how exciting life can be when you are FIT, HEALTHY and ACTIVE 🙂

SIMON SAYS GURU QUOTE : 'having Purpose, provides you a path to follow, having None, in circles you will go..'
been awhile since I posted one of my guru rants, but after going to Japan, and seeing such purpose, effort & efficiency etc, it reminded me of Why do we do what we do..
Every motivational post you see these days, from amateur to professional speaker, really focus on the WHY.
If you do things without knowing the why, the question is why do you do it all? And if just 'because', or you 'like it', is it giving off the desired outcome, or are you simply going around in circles..?
Take Health & Fitness, seeing this is a page for that 😏 if you don't fully understand the why (of trying to be fit & healthy), or commit to it, honestly look at the notion of, are you just going in circles?
Train hard for a few days, then have a few bad days, eat bad, drink a bit, etc to only do the same thing, next week, the week after etc etc..
But imagine that cycle was instead you climbing a mountain and at the top was a once in a lifetime view, or maybe it's something more realistic, like building a house, that you can actually pay off, or saving for an amazing trip somewhere..
If you kept making the same errors and started again & again & again.. how would that make you feel about ever reaching that end outcome? Or even continuing with it at all?
Now, if you focused, really understood the PURPOSE of why you are going to do this thing, to get to this outcome.. the path to the outcome becomes so much clearer. It's like being handed a map, or even a map of a maze, and then the path was highlighted.. would you vere off that path, just because?
No chance!
I can admit, I was simply working, playing football, coming up with ideas that never happened, over & over for the last 20 years, I know how stupid that sounds. But only since about June 2017, when I decided, I'm going to Japan, so I'm booking this trip, and really focused on it & made it happen, did I realise having that purpose, also gave me drive, a reason to do what I do, a reason to go to work, and work harder, but the big part was understanding that reason, committing to it and believing in it.
Now, what's next? 😃

So, i'll bring boxing gear, but if it rains, we'll do something still..
