MAKE IT STICK! A physical and psychological approach to achieving goals!

Alan and Adam are health and wellness professionals who will be illustrating how goals can be successfully achieved, with greater power & effectiveness, by coming from two different perspectives at the same time. They work in collaboration with companies in order to address the great workplace epidemics of our age: stress; low energy; lower self esteem; and the frustration, anger and conflict that ensues.

The main challenge is not one of inspiring or motivating people to desire change, it is ensuring that the hard work ‘takes’. We so easily resort to our individual default settings once the initial charge of enthusiasm subsides – But Adam and Alan will illustrate how ensure this does not happen.

Adam tackles the issues of physical fitness, diet & nutrition head on with a multi layer approach involving: mind-set; energy levels; physical fitness; and willpower/determination.

Alan deals in depth with the ‘head game’. These are the attitudes, beliefs and resulting behaviour that impede us in getting where we really want to be. Get the head game right and all of your hard work will not go to waste – the changes WILL stick!

The audience will be able to take away worksheets covering:

1. BREAKING OUT OF YOUR ‘DISCOMFORT’ ZONE

2. EXAMINING MOTIVATION

3. ENHANCING SELF BELIEF

There will also be a free raffle for a number of copies of Adam Strong’s groundbreaking book, ‘Move it or Lose it’ now available in over 24 countries worldwide including Amazon, Waterstone’s and Barnes & Noble.

    The brief gave me a totally different impression and I was expecting to learn about achieving goals in general with regards to work/life. Was not expecting it to be only about health & fitness. A couple of other people whom I spoke to felt the same and were disappointed. The next briefs should have a strong mention of what precisely the talks will be about so you get the right audience and so its not disappointing to those that attend. With regards to the talk, people in the audience wereeant to find solutions for each other ans that didn't really help as I left with no knowledge different to what I knew already. I hope this criticism is taken constructively.

    The headline gave me a different impression about what this talk was going cover. I found the content interesting and I have stuck to both the goals I committed myself to on the night so it was certainly of benefit to me. This was my first meet up with this group and I will attend others I am sure.
    Thank you for a well organised event.

    It was ok, I liked the speakers but I think there could have been more depth as others have said. I did not come away feeling wow but I like the idea of people making excuses abut achieving their health goals

      Hi Mark. Thank you for your comment. Trying to reconcile breadth and depth when covering a holistic approach certainly is challenging - the issue of depth is very important for us to keep in mind. Many thanks & have a great weekend, Alan

    Thanks to Matt for organising the event!

    I enjoyed it overall – very professional.

    However, as the lady below stated, it was not an in depth seminar.

    As usual, too much to cover and too little time.

    I thought the challenges and nutrition sections were a bit too basic and the deeper understanding section could have had more time spent on it

    It was interesting and interactive. It had a focus on health and fitness goals, but the same principles could be applied to life and other goals as well.
