Ryan Hurst, Cofounder & Head Coach of GMB Fitness now lives in Osaka, Japan with his wife and 2 kids.
“Physical Autonomy is central to what GMB is about. We don’t believe in achieving some arbitrary BMI or visual aesthetics. Instead, we’d rather help people develop a mindful awareness of their bodies, so they can excel at the things they really care about.
And that means being clear on what they want in life. It means mindfully paying attention to their body so they can see what’s holding them back. It means having a proven system and method that we can apply and used over and over again so we can overcome what’s holding us back. And more importantly, it’s about helping people reach THEIR goals so they can live life to the fullest – not about randomly following some fitness guru’s goals.”
Three Important Topics Ryan Hurst Discusses:
1. Figure out your “why” and write it down – Be clear about what you want so you’re not wasting time and revisit your why (the reason you’re really doing this) often to help keep you going.
2. Focus more on awareness – Simplify your workouts to focus only on a few major movements. That will allow you to spend more time with each move and bring better awareness to those skills. Better awareness means greater improvement.
3. Assess your strength, flexibility, and control – Pick one of those areas and work on improving it. After you’ve achieved your goal in that area move on to the next one.
