Fitness and nutrition goals are something we all strive for, but it can be hard to achieve them. We often come up against barriers and obstacles that prevent us from making progress. Think baseball, cricket, football, tennis or rugby! Breaking through barriers or obstacles in your way is how to win. With the right mindset and approach, we can identify these gaps and overcome challenges. In this post, we'll use a boxing analogy to show you how.
