This week we were very lucky to sit down with Richie Norton, aka The Strength Temple, to talk mental health in sport, why its vitally important and why more needs to be done as it’s just as important as good physical health. We learnt all about Richie, how he started on the path he’s now on, what motivates him, why its important to get out into nature, the power of breathing, social media and how it can be used as a force for good, why its important to keep checking in with yourself to ensure you aren’t living on your phone, how the rabbits in his garden have become internet famous plus SO MUCH MORE! Thank you so much to Richie for his time, kindness and patience. We came away from the chat feeling like we had learnt so much and know you will feel the same way.
