As you may be aware, when it comes to music there’s not many more things I love more than 80’s hair bands.

Well that and 90s rap music.

But when you’re talking hair bands,

give me Bon Jovi, Guns N Roses, Def Leppard, Poison, Motley Crue etc

any day over what they call music now.

They were the good ole days of music that’s for sure.

Back when you needed more than some bloody doof doof loop on repeat to make a song.

Anyways, enough of my rant that makes me sound like an old man.

Well maybe I am getting to be an old man…

But today I’m thinking of Bon Jovi.

And one song in particular.

Living on a prayer.

Definitely their biggest hit but not my favourite tune of theirs by any stretch.

(Give me ‘something to believe in’ any day)

Sure it was a good song.

But the reason for living on a prayer today is cause that famous line

“Ohhh we’re half way there”

And this week is living on a prayer week.

Cause we’re half way through the year.

Yep – living on a prayer week.

Time flies and all those cliches right?

But it brings me to this one big question:

Are you half way to what you said you’d achieve this year?

So, if you said way back on Jan 1 that you’re going to drop 10kg this year – are you 5kg down now?

If you said you’d drop 2 jeans sizes are you down 1 size?

The answer for each of those questions – or whatever goal you set yourself fix simple.

It’s a yes or no.

Not ‘I would’ve but..’, ‘I started, but…’

Get where I’m going?

You’ve either done the work of you haven’t.

Harsh maybe.

But truth.

If you’re not half way to where you want to be,

There’s still hope.

So long as you’ve started or so long as you’re ready to start.

On that, If you’re having troubles getting started

Or if you just don’t know what to do

There is a solution that will help you get there.

Funnily enough it’s me.

I do have some spots available in the DPM morning small group sessions.

They’re at Lilyfield or Observatory Hill in the City.

You can find out session times and more info by clicking the link below


Any questions let me know.


PS – group times don’t suit?

I’ve got time in my diary for 2 personal training vacancies. More info in the link below

Yes, it may not be cheap. But when was the last time you heard cheap and a guaranteed solution in the same sentence?
