Do you feel at all scared by the change?
Yeah 100% because when I’m stockbroking I can’t be fully invested in coaching and gymnastics, but when I’m doing that at the weekends I can’t be revising. There’s always a toss up so I’ve got a list on my phone of what I should be prioritising. I ask myself what my priority is this week, or this day and if I’m ever stuck between one or the other, I focus more on the long term thing. What I’ve noticed being in the stockbroking industry is that most people have other investments so I’ve been surrounded by people working on other things as well. Some people work in property and run that on the outside, so fitness and movement have become my side business.
How will you combat desk damage in your new office job?
I’m in the perfect scenario to test myself because I’m now living the life of someone who is sat at a desk. Although I’ve done a couple of videos about stretching at your desk because people wanted that, I’ve always said when you’re at work do your work, but make sure to look after your body outside of that. Get some training sessions in during the week, book them in, in your own time. Personally, I don’t mix the two. When I’m at work I’ll sit down all day and when I get home in the evening, I’ll spend an hour stretching. I’m not at work trying to stretch and I’m not thinking about work when I’m stretching at home. I’m just completely focused on what I’m doing at the time.
