When we first begin our Muay Thai journeys we tend to schedule our training around our life routine. As we become more and more addicted to Muay Thai there comes a time where our priorities shift, and instead of scheduling training around life, we schedule life around our training.

In this weeks podcast, Paul and I discuss the gradual evolution of our work, life and training balance as we’ve continued along our Muay Thai careers. We discuss a number of topics including:

  • How champion fighters like Ognjen Topic and “Bazooka” Joe Valtellini have been able to balance their full-time jobs with their fight training and careers.
  • The importance of deciding early on how seriously you’re going to take your Muay Thai career and dedicating yourself (and your life) to it.
  • Why eliminating distractions, bad influences and time-killing activities is key to getting the most out of your day to day.
  • Sacrificing sleep, social life and other areas of your life to pursue greatness.
  • The idea of “planning spontaneity” and learning how to roll with the punches that life throws at you.
  • How reading books like “Outliers” and “The Obstacle Is The Way” can inspire and teach you the ways of excellence.
  • The importance of planning – your training, your nutrition, your rest days, everything!
  • And much, much more
