You may have seen Darren in various other classes over the past few weeks.
He set himself the challenge to try new things this year, it is one of his personal ways of staying motivated and to train and challenge his body in new ways.
I asked him what it meant to get into this headspace, he said it’s about not being afraid to be the beginner in something. Who cares what others may think, as long as you can smile and put your ‘I can’t do this’ worries to the side you will feel the benefits.
It’s inspiring to see and hear this, especially as a fellow teacher, to be the beginner can be even more intimidating but you can always learn something new however experienced you are.
His other motivator is Conner McGregor!
