We mentioned last week that on Saturday we had a team of 106 in the Born Survivor OCR (Obstacle Course Run) event at Capesthorne Hall (you can still sponsor here if you fancy?).


Did I mention we had the biggest team in the UK this year with 106? 😉


Check us out:




It was a truly awesome day.


Most of the team wouldn’t have even dreamed they could or would do something like this only weeks or months ago.


And every single one of them told me they enjoyed it miles more than they expected they would.


The team work and camaraderie.


The overcoming physical challenges.


The unexpected sheer fun of getting muddy, often for the first time since child hood.


We often say that ‘weight loss’ is what we have to ‘put above the door’ to get people in.


It’s ‘meeting people where they are’.


Because that’s what they want when they join.


But they quickly realise there’s so much more than that.


Health and fitness stops becoming about restriction, deprivation, effort, will-power and motivation.


And becomes more about having a body you like the look and feel of.


And that can do ‘cool shit’ 🙂


And the stuff you need to do to make that happen………


Just, kinds, happens automatically.


I was incredibly proud of the entire team.


For what they did for themselves.


And for what they did for each other.


The team work involved in helping the rest of the group brought a tear to my eye.


You guys were all awesome 🙂


We have big plans for next year’s event.


The biggest team of all time.


Watch this space for more info.


And, if you like the sound of getting a body you like the look and feel of…….


And that you can do ‘cool shit’ with (doesn’t have to involved getting muddy by the way)……..


Then, it’s the find-out-more meeting tomorrow night –> myrise.co.uk/briefing-meeting.


No pressure, no salesy stuff – just come down (or send a friend) and see if it’s for you.



Much love,
