Dealing with Injury

As an elite athlete and personal trainer, injury is something I face on a regular basis; either I have an injury, or a client does.

Failure

‘What is your biggest fear?’ For me it used to be a fear of failure, of messing up, of not being good enough at something or getting it wrong. Oh, and birds!!
