THE DOUBLE BRUTAL EXTREME TRIATHLON

I had never completed a triathlon before, and a year out from my 2000 kilometre in 12-day Ultimate Triathlon, I thought it would be a good idea to get a multisport event under my belt. I decided to take on The Double Brutal Extreme Triathlon. This double Ironman distance race (8km swim, 375km bike, 85km […]

HAINAN

Hainan is an island located in the South China Sea. The small province of the People’s Republic of China has many beautiful beaches, rainforests, and mountains, which were the reason I went there. My plan while in Hainan was to run to, and then climb, Wuzhi Mountain, the highest mountain in Hainan. Although only 1,840m […]

LUKE LEARNS TO SURF

As an Aussie living in London and not knowing how to surf, I thought it was time to live up to the stereotype so many people in this world have of Australians; that we must all know how to surf. The most famous surf town in the UK is Newquay, situated over 400 kilometres from […]

Unfortunately, we were delayed to get up into the mountain because of bad weather, then after a day of rock […]

Mindset Coaching

Through challenging my body to what I thought were its limits, and then continuing to push through these barriers I realised something; that my mind is so much stronger than my body. But what does this mean? You’ve probably heard something along the lines of this. “When your mind wants to quit, your body still […]

Climbing Volcanoes in Guatemala

This was my first real big adventure. I spent eight days in Guatemala climbing active volcanoes and seeing some of the beauty the country has to offer. I spent most of my time in the second largest city Quetzaltenango, which is at the base of The Santa Maria Volcano, the 4th  highest Volcano in Guatemala […]

Never Stop Living Life

Are you truly living life?   When we are children, I’m sure most of us had big dreams, goals, and things we believed we could achieve as we got older. Whether it was a career, destination to visit, or to emulate one of our heroes, as kids, we believed nothing was impossible, and living life inevitable.

Be Successful – Build a Team

  3 key reasons why you should build a team   I used to think that asking others for help made me weak, that I could do everything my way and myself, and I didn’t need to build a team around me,  I was wrong! Clearly I don’t know it all, my way is almost always […]
