Jason is a former CrossFit Games world champion and the author the incredible new book As Many Reps As Possible.

Jason is also one of the most accomplished athletes in CrossFit Games history. In 2008, he was crowned the Fittest Man on Earth and has earned other top finishes across the board.

In today’s episode, we talked about everything from winning the Crossfit Games in 2008 and how he ate/trained for his physical peak in 2014 to the AMRAP mentality the perspective changes he had after his daughters battle with leukemia (they celebrated 1 year out of treatment last week).

Are you looking to Rewire Your Mindset so that you can hit any goal in your fitness, personal or work life? If yes, then this is the seminar for you.

During the full day event, you will learn about the concept of The Four Quadrants (Health, Wealth, Love and Fulfilment) and how rewiring your mindset is critical in making any change in your life.

Here are some of the areas we will be covering on the day.

Building Confidence: using the ‘confidence table’ to hit any goal and how to add legs to that table with small and simple steps.

Designing The ‘Perfect Day’: The days lead into weeks, weeks into months and months into years. When we get the perfect day right, the ‘compound effect’ starts to kick in and difficult things like eating well, training consistently and difficult conversations start to become much easier and automatic.   

Goal Setting: There’s a foolproof system for hitting any goal by keeping the end in mind at all times. Once you learn it, you can apply it to all four quadrants.

Dealing with negative people: once you get clear on the action steps needed to improve your four quadrants, you will see how easy it easy to cut (physically or emotionally) from those who pull you backwards. You will also see how to design your inner circle of people who will help you on your journey.

Feeling the fear and doing it anyways: learn the techniques and strategies I used for overcoming my fear of failure, my fear of success and the fear of other peoples opinions.  

Habits: tell me what you do every day and I’ll tell you where you’ll be in a year. You will leave the seminar knowing exactly what action steps you need to take in order to hit your end goal and how to stay on course when things get difficult.

Mental health: Use my daily discomfort techniques for overcoming environmental anxiety and depression.

Avoiding self-sabotage: Your biggest enemy lives between your two ears. When we identify why you self sabotage, you will finally be able to get out of your own way and hit any goal that you set for yourself.

If you feel frustrated, unconfident, unsatisfied or unfulfilled in any area of your life, then this seminar is not to be missed! Lets Rewire Your Mindset on the 20th of April 2019.

This was physically the hardest thing I’ve done in my entire life and I recorded it in one go so I hope you enjoy it.
