Thanks for the good times @f45_training_darwin @f45training_palmerston Today we officially sold our studios in Darwin. We opened the first just over 2 years ago; myself & business partner @trainermark with the help of my ex-girlfriend (and still friend/best human) @megzyy_ – it’s been an incredible ride and I’ve made some lifelong friends. Plenty of ups & downs but the darwin community is a unique & beautiful crew I’m lucky to have been a part of, an experience I won’t take for granted. I’d like to thank the staff for their support and wish the new owners (who are very successful operators in their own right) all the best with the purchase. I firmly believe they’ll give the D-Town studios the love they deserve! So why sell? We still bleed red & blue and can now focus our energy on the big 3 studios here in Melbourne town. Sometimes the timing is right and from business perspective (taking the emotion out of it) it makes sense. Shout out to @outbackpat for making the move to D-Town and having our back. ??? #F45DTown #F45Palmy

“we’re all self conscious, i’m just the first to admit it” – kanye west. an interesting and enigmatic character to say the least (although this lyric was back when his jams were a bit more on point), but also one of the motivations for my live chat podcast this week. it is so easy to believe you are alone when thoughts and feelings of not being good enough start to creep into your reality. it is hard to remember that we all feel this way all the time. being overly self conscious is one of the most natural human states of being because we are all constantly looking for comfort and belonging. when those two staples of human experience are hard to spot shame will confidently step up to the plate to remind us of our imperfections. fuck that shame though, it’s not real. it is the least accurate projection of yourself the mind can come up with in it’s feeble attempt to keep you locked in your comfort zone and away from the risk of rejection. this self defense mechanism is designed to keep any of us in the places we feel safe, the places we “belong”. there is life beyond the walls of your own self doubt waiting to be lived, remove the pressure of social validation to find joy in the process of becoming comfortable with who you are. find an outlet that doesn’t require popular opinion or input from others to be considered worthy and give yourself the opportunity to be happy with your own efforts. #yogapose #yogainspiration
