EP13: Talking Fitness, Raising Your Pain Threshold and Living Your Purpose with Ollie Chick
If you look at any influential leading figure, especially in the personal growth/development world they once faced adversity, discomfort and pain. Whether that’s being an outcast, being homeless or not being able to afford Christmas, Birthdays and other holidays.
What they also have in common, is using that adversity, discomfort and pain for greater motivation to accomplish the live that they want to lead. In other words, what they all have in common is turning that pain into their purpose.
And, in this episode of the Grow2Gether podcast our guest Ollie Chick was no different. Ollie, used to hate fitness. But, embarked on his own personal growth journey to turn his pain into his purpose and is now a personal trainer at the University of Bath and is building two startups that focus on fitness and education.
Top points from this episode:
- Overtime human beings have mistaken comfort with happiness, which has resulted in our pain thresholds being lowered and has had an impact on all of our mental wellbeing.
- Fitness and regular exercise are one of the number one ways to release stress, clear your mind and help to overcome any mental wellbeing challenges that you are facing. One of the challenges is that people are fearful of going to the gym or doing exercise in case they do it wrong, are beginners and may not look the part. Getting an accountability partner is one great way to start to overcome this.
- Through life, things happen that don’t go according to plan or that suck but its how you interpret it and bounce back from it that truly matters.
- It’s your moral obligation to the world and to yourself to be the best person that you can be.
- Plus, much much more!
