Bathurst winner, Dave Reynolds has to be one of the most likeable, laid back, freestyle, give zero-fucks, anti-establishment professional athletes in Australia. In fact, it's incredible that a guy who competes under such immense pressure (sponsors, fans, team expectations, driving demands, high speed thrills and spills, extreme in-car temperatures) can be so calm, relaxed and easy-going. Among other things, Dave shares how he (1) lost 6 kilos in a race (2) was fined $25,000 for a comment in a press conference (the biggest ever fine for a driver) (3) hated school (4) doesn't have a plan B (5) hates media training and (6) is starting an anti-road rage campaign after an irate woman assaulted him with her stiletto (really). This is possibly the funniest podcast Craig has done.
In this episode, Craig, Melissa and Bianca Chatfield (ex. Aussie Netballer, TV presenter, Author) share their thoughts, ideas, stories and personal experiences, unpacking and dissecting what can be, an emotive and delicate topic. This is a conversation that is relevant for many and one that needs to be had more often.
From hero to zero in a week. Or so it seems for some professional athletes who are forced to retire (through age or injury) or are simply, 'no longer required'. Friday: athlete. Monday: unemployed. When your sport has been your complete focus and identity for decades (and your club has been your 'family') and then, in the space of a day you're no longer an athlete or team member, what happens to the human behind the role, the reputation and the identity? In this episode, Craig goes deep with ex-AFL player, Jamie Shanahan (162 games, St. Kilda, Melbourne) exploring this question and some of the relevant issues and challenges.
Craig was one of Australia's first PTs (1986), established Australia's first PT Centre in 1990, employed hundreds of Trainers and also (personally) facilitated more than 50,000 PT sessions over three decades. In this episode of TYP, he shares stories, insights and lessons that shaped the way he thinks, communicates and coaches today.
Former AFL Champion Nathan Burke (323 Games, 4 times all-Australian), is back in the studio and he and Craig talk about what's required (skills, qualities, attributes, mindset) to become a high-performer is sport, business and life.
Geoff Jowett. What a story. From the high-flying, fast-talking, money-making, money-wasting, drug-taking, reality-avoiding, ego-driven, insecure millionaire entrepreneur... to the broke, broken, depressed, suicidal, anxiety-riddled man-child... to the bloke who found peace, purpose, sobriety, contentment and himself in the things he once avoided; stillness, quiet, reflection, isolation and the company of a few animals. This is a great conversation with a bloke who's had (and continues to have) a fascinating journey.

Just be you. Is that not the most over-used self-help cliché ever? And what does it even mean? After all, you're you aren't you? How can you not be? You're one hundred percent you, one hundred percent of the time. There hasn't been one second of your life when you've been someone else. Of course, you can dress, talk and act different(ly) but it's still you. All you. Or is it? Maybe in the changing of thought, emotion and behaviour, you can become 'someone else' or perhaps more accurately, a 'different version of you'. Perhaps 'you' can morph, evolve, transform and perhaps the 'you' of ten years ago, is unrecognisable to the 'you' of today?

As the title suggests, in this episode Craig answers listener questions, explores a broad range of subject matter and along the way, goes off at a few tangents. As he does. He eventually finds his way back to the topic at hand. If you are sensitive to swearing, this might not be the episode for you.

In this episode of TYP, rebel Dietician Vicky Kuriel pulls no punches when she takes aim at the thinking, philosophy and information being disseminated by most professionals working in the nutrition space. She also provides some great practical advice for anyone looking to change their current 'nutritional operating system'. Oh yeah, and she tells Craig why his much-loved breakfast is not so awesome after all.Further info on Vicky's services can be found at lowcarbchallenge.com.au.
