Ben was born with the genetic illness Cystic Fibrosis and made the choice a long time ago to use his ‘weakness’ as a strength. Better known as the Ben ‘Thor’ Mudge (he looks just like the muscular god Thor), we talk about how a conversation with a Dothraki (he worked on Season 1 of Game of Thrones) led him to work in fitness. If you want to know how to use your ‘weakness’ as a strength and how to give your problems all the time they need and no more, this is a must listen!

Former Kerry football star Paul Galvin joined me for today’s awesome podcast. We talked everything from how he uses Irish culture to tell stories through his clothing line, how playing on arguably one of the greatest teams of all time makes you physically and mentally stronger to making real connections with people and minimizing time on your phone and not letting your ego take control when making decisions. Mindset knowledge bombs galore in this one!

  • What got you into fitness first? 09:15
  • What does your nutrition look like now compared to when you played with Kerry?  15:32
  • What does the first hour of your day look like? 17:48
  • What player did you find you had the best connection on the pitch with (that’s my geeky GAA side coming out as I was dying to know) 37:00
  • What life advice would you give to the 18-year-old Paul Galvin? 43:51

Paul is one of my best friends in this world and you may have heard me mention him on the podcast in the business (as one of my inner circle) so I’m so excited to have him on the podcast to talk all things business, fitness and life. Paul came through my mentorship program and over the last two years has gone from working full times in a bookies to being one of the most successful 1:1 personal trainer in the country to now moving his business online and working with clients from Spain. We completely ebbed and flowed on this episode and talked everything from business and personal training to suffocating excuses and attacking the things you’re afraid of. This was absolute fire! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

For this one, I just pressed record and talked about of my experience running 250km self-sufficient through the Sahara Desert the week before last. I go briefly into everything I did with my training, food and mindset before the event and then all the ridiculous and life-changing moments during and after my time in the Sahara. This episode goes through the highs and the lows. I’ve talked everything from avoiding snakes and scorpions on the long day (86 km), seeing people hooked up to IV’s and puking blood to cutting away the steel poles holding our tent to try and survive a sandstorm (side note: I’ll never take having a roof and four walls for granted ever again!). I hope you enjoy this one. This episode is dedicated to my MDS tent mates Simon, Johnny, Paddy, Hugh, Fergal and Pete who all played a huge role in helping me get to the finish line.

Today is a pretty heavy hitting mindset episode, I talk about some things in my own life that I haven’t spoken about previously to try and give context to how these stories showed up in my life and the life triggers that sparked them. I feel like this would have been a treasure map for me five years so I hope it helps as it’s something I needed to hear not too long ago.

 

 

Story 1: IT’S JUST NOT THE RIGHT TIME  00:05:12:22

 

Watch out for fear disguised as practicality

 

Story 2: I’M DOING SOMETHING SO THAT’S GOOD ENOUGH 00:15:31:13

 

Do not confuse movement with progress!

 

Story 3: I CAN’T DO THAT! 00:24:42:00

 

If you tell yourself you cant, your mind will close off immediately. Remember, if your goals don’t scare you they aren’t big enough!

 

Story 4: WAIT, BUT THAT’S IMPOSSIBLE!  00:30:10:22

 

All your limitations are self created and impossible is a big word thrown around by small people. Try telling Thomas Edison (inventor of the light bulb) or The Wright Brothers (inventors of the airplane) that their ideas were impossible! (Steve Jobs, Elon Musk and Richard Branson are the modern day examples)

 

 

Story 5: I'LL LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES! 00:32:57:02

 

This one needs more context. It’s incredibly important to learn from mistakes but nobody said they had to be your mistakes. Reframing this one single story has changed everything in my life in over the last five years.

 

Feb 5, 2018

1) What do you think of juice diets?

2) Do you track fruit or should as carbs?

3) Do you have good quotes or advice for athletes (and life in general)?

4) What would you recommend for severe bloating? I find it terrible after eating pulses and green veg, it's quite painful?

5) You always talk about glute activation, this might be a stupid question but how do you know if they’re activating?

6) What do I do if I have a small penis?
