Fit Stuff

The Ausbuild Fit Stuff Challenge



My name is Rob Bishop. Right from the start I knew this was going to be a life changer. Meeting for the first time with a nutritionist even if I didn’t get the program he recommended was a huge help. Leaving the ins and outs of food and helping me realize what I knew all along binge eating was by far my biggest arch enemy.

I set about immediately to remove all the foods I would find tempting and then positioned motivational notes in areas I knew would be problems.

Sentences like:
“No pain no gain.”
“If you always do what you always did then you will always get what you always got.”
“Pain is temporary, pride is forever.”

After the first month I didn’t need these notes any more. I instead challenged myself every week to do more then what I did the previous week. Using the group and drawing on myself for motivation.

After week 3 I have been running 3 weekly fitness tests. Making sure I am improving as well as keeping to work on what my goals are.

Week 5 was the toughest week. After seeing the results and improvement the side of me that has been in control my whole life kicked in. Being under 110kgs and being fitter then I have been in 10 years it was becoming near enough is good enough.

I then changed my strategy.

For the last 5 weeks I have been focussing on people in particular anyone who said anything was impossible.

At thee start of the week I would speak with friends and family about the challenge ahead and ask what is an impossible goal? I would then take the most extreme and far out goal and make that my new challenge for the week.

As a motivator and a trainer and most importantly I would like to say a mate now as well Nathan Devlin has been fantastic his motivation and support when required got me started and through any tough times. He’s not bad for a qlder.

This challenge I would recommend to anyone who seriously wants to change their lives. Who want to give what they can an more proving the impossible is possible!
