Mindset – Every Monday I post a quote directly linking you to think about how you can build the mindset of a WARRIOR!


5 Things You Can Do to Improve Your Mindset in 20 Minutes


1. Just breathe. (5 minutes)

Studies show that just a few minutes a day of quiet can open our brains and make it available for our most innovative ideas. 

2. Check your thoughts. (5 minutes)

Have you ever gotten up in the morning when the weather is lousy and said, this is going to be a bad day? Taking five minutes to make sure our thoughts are positive starts the day off with the right mindset.

3. Write your grateful list. (3 minutes)

Set the timer and write down five things you are grateful for every day. Try for a different list each day, and at the end of the week you will be surprised how this helps your mindset.

4. Set your intention for the day. (5 minutes)

Before you leave in the morning, set an intention of how you want the day to end. How do you want the actions you accomplish today to make you feel at the end of the day? 

5. Turn off the noise. (2 minutes)

Just for today, find something else to listen to when you begin your day. Do your morning commute without listening to the news (it’s never positive), talking on the phone or checking social media. Listen to your favourite music, a lecture you’ve recorded and have been wanting to get time for, or just observe what’s happening around you.

Nicci’s News

Hi everyone I hope you are all enjoying the cooler weather to train. Remember it is the perfect time to get some km’s up if you are wanting to increase your running distance. Don’t wait until it gets too hot.
So I head to Hawaii at the end of this week for a holiday but to also do Spartan. My Spartan weekend will consist of 12HR Hurricane heat on Friday from 6am until 6pm. Saturday I will do the beast so 21km. Sunday will be the super 14km and sprint 7kms. Alot of people are interested to find out what the 12HR hurricane heat is all about. So I have done a number of 4HR Hurricane heats and they consist of a pretty hardcore bootcamp style warm up followed by getting ranked up and taking on army based team challenges for the  remainder of the time. The 12 hour will be all that plus a lot of unknown for me. We carry a weighted pack that also contains everything we need for 12hrs hydration food plus anything they have added onto the gear list. On the gear list is Duct tape a 4ft wooden stick and 50 ft of Para cord.That is just a few of the items.There could  also be submersion into water.Anything that our troups may need to endure we may need to do.If we can no longer continue through the day our headband gets taken from us and we are done.This happens to 60% of people that attempt this event.
I am going to give it everything I have to be in the 40% that are successful. When taking on these events though it is so important to remember that even if we fail we learn. Good lesson in life I think.
Am I freaking out YES!
Am I exited YES!
Can’t wait to tell you all about it when I get back.
Cheers Nicci


Fit Stuff Testimonial – Mereoni Duncan

Been a member of Fit Stuff has been a life saver for me physically, emotionally and mentally. Its been a second family to me where I have made life long friends and I wouldn’t be anywhere else but morning Bootcamps with like minded humans. I first met Nate Devlin at Goodlife gym as my personal trainer for a 12 week challenge a few years ago and that’s where my fitness journey started and I was introduced to this amazing Bootcamp program called Fit Stuff.
I’ve done a few Bootcamps over the years and nothing like Fit Stuff and what Nate provides every session. Nathan  has been my inspiration, a supporter, a great listener and down to earth legend of a man I’ve ever known. I’m glad to call him a friend! Without Nate  and Fit Stuff I wouldn’t have been where I am today with my Fitness. Thank you Nate



Nutrition Tip – Which foods boost the immune system? Here I have released 2 of the 15! More coming soon…

Happy Healthy Eating!



Various studies have shown that garlic has antibacterial and antiviral properties. It has been shown to stimulate the production of white blood cells and can act as an antioxidant in the body.

Kid-Friendly Serving Idea:

Put lots of garlic into every dish you prepare to help ward off or relieve cold and flu symptoms. 

Brightly-Coloured Vegetables


Carotenoids such as beta-carotene are important antioxidants that aid in immune system function. Carotenoids are present in bright yellow, orange and green vegetables. It’s important to get a variety of vegetables of different colours because various types of carotenoids are thought to work together to strengthen the body’s immune system.

“Colours are the calling card for carotenoids,” says Dr. Katz. “You want to try to develop a portfolio — get as much of a variety of colours as you can.”

How Many Vegetables Should Your Kids Eat Every Day?


Cheers Nate and Nicci
