“We all have stories. We can all dare to dream. We all have the ability to make a difference. We can all embark on the journey to find our feet.”

There are so many extraordinary people achieving outside of the ordinary. From athletes to artists, adventurers to entrepreneurs, scientists to everyday people embarking on huge adventures. However, it is not what they achieve that fascinates me, but rather, how they achieve such excellence.   

Through my Find Your Feet Podcast, I want to pull back layer upon layer to find out what drives these members of our community who are striving hard to find their feet & live a rich, purposeful life. I want to help their powerful messages and stories to be heard so that they can continue to make a ripple… or potentially even a splash!  

I hope that through sharing their journeys and an insight into what makes them tick, we can provide an avenue for your own self-exploration for a meaningful life filled with excellence, in whatever that field may be. Because ultimately, I just hope that these inspiring individuals can help us all to progress one step closer to finding our feet as people, and in whatever dreams we dare to dream.

Today we sit down with Rob to delve into the man behind the camera lens. What we find is a quiet, thoughtful and generous person who is committed to both showcasing and protecting Tasmania’s rugged wilderness.

#7 THE PSYCHOLOGY OF POTENTIAL WITH DR. JEREMY ADAMS

We discuss why Jeremy wants to remove the ‘mental’ and simply include it within overall health, performance, why we’re so hard on ourselves, motivation, social media, work/life/training balance, our brains and how they are wired to work, the dark side of performance and much, much more.

#8 ROWING BACKWARDS TO RUNNING FORWARDS WITH HANNAH CLARK

 This woman is mature well beyond her 25 years. The way she manages to balance studying to become a doctor with training, and how she overcomes setbacks or sudden changes in direction, is truly inspiring.

#11 LISTENING TO YOUR EMOTIONS WITH DR. CLIVE STACK

"To achieve your best, it is valuable to learn to listen to yourself because those emotions will guide you the best to the path that best suits you and that you are going to enjoy the most, that you are going to be the best at. So, everyone has a talent. EVERYONE has a talent, everyone has an ability.".

#12 FROM SEAS TO SUMMIT
WITH TIM MACARTNEY-SNAPE

“One has to be mindful of one’s insecurities. All of us are insecure to varying degrees. That can lead us, especially men, to be egotistical. We all have egos. We have to be mindful of letting the ego become too dominant because it can become an unstoppable force. For me, nature has always been a restorative thing in that regard, it had brought me down to earth.”

#13 HUNTING FOR THE TASMANIAN THYLACINE WITH COL BAILEY

Author of Tiger Tales, Shadow of the Thylacine and Lure of the Thylacine, Col is a respected and well known supporter of the Thylacine's existence. Despite admitting to having seen a Tasmanian Tiger, what makes Col an intriguing person however, is his humble approach to the topic..

#14 HEALTH & TRAINING
WITH ANDREW BONSEY

With exercise physiology becoming more mainstream, Andrew believes,​“It would be a shame if only the athletes got the information, and the reality is that it’s information that we can all apply; no matter how fit or strong or athletically sound we might be."

#15 THE TRAIL TO UTMB
WITH BROOK MARTIN

"I don’t think that you can do an ultra and not have some points where you’re going to struggle mentally. If you never struggle mentally then potentially you’re not running fast enough because you should be feeling bad at some point. That is how it is.  I think what the good guys have learned is how to shorten the period of how bad it goes, control the losses at that point.".

#16 MENTAL HEALTH
WITH BEN HIRST

Coming into connection with Ben through the Find Your Feet store, I was really inspired by his genuine honesty, kindness and willingness to share his struggles with mental illnesses.

#19 BASE TRAINING
WITH HANNY ALLSTON 

So, base training! It is the first aspect of physical training that I have included in my Trail Running Guidebook - and for very good reason. The term ‘base training’ feels like a bit of an overkill signpost as to what I am suggesting to build your fitness foundations.

#20 LIFE-LONG ATHLETICISM

There is something really magical about this conversation with Jayn and Yeti. This discussion is a gentle, relaxed insight into their aspirations, approach to training and general relationship as they participate in the senior categories at trail & ultra distance events.

Navigating the seemingly endless sources of information on sports nutrition & hydration can be overwhelming, but I believe there are only a few basic principles everybody must know..

#28 ADVENTURE & RACE PSYCHOLOGY WITH HANNY ALLSTON

 If we do not take the time to recognise what success means to us and understand why we value the adventure, and even when we are physically strong enough, our fears and doubts can overcome our positive psychology to derail our performance.
 This conversation will be incredibly useful to anyone interested in adventures, embarking on an upcoming race, or simply wanting to get the most out of their physical passions..

#29 NUTRITION FOR OPTIMAL WELLBEING WITH JULIANA LISBOA 

"The more you learn about it, the more you learn that there is no perfect diet. Also, the more you learn that everyone is different and the barriers for that diet that is going to work for them, are very different, and you need to work with them to go around those barriers. As I went along with nutrition that’s when I realised psychology was becoming more and more important in that way.” 

#30 AFTER SACRIFICES FOR PERFORMANCE WITH JODIE WILLETT

Our conversation took an in-depth exploration of how Jodie navigated high-level performance - the sacrifices, shortfalls, triumphs and emotional journey..

#31 TAPERING & RACE DAY PSYCHOLOGY WITH HANNY ALLSTON  

This episode is very different to previous Find Your Feet Podcast episodes and actually one of the topics that I get asked the most about. In this episode we discuss the physical, mental and emotional strategies around tapering before a peak performance and psychologically how to maximise your enjoyment on the day itself. 

#32 ATHLETICISM THROUGH THEORIES OF ECOLOGY WITH LEE BELBIN   

One day I received a compassionately crafted email from Lee, sharing his thoughts and feedback on the podcast so far. We started exchanging emails and Lee opened up more and more about his background as an ecologist, his theories on performance and how by combining these two things he had managed to avoid any sporting injury for his entire life.

#33 COMMON TRAIL RUNNING INJURIES WITH HANNY ALLSTON

We went in with an intention to talk about common trail running injuries, specifically overuse injuries and my own personal experience with Achilles tendonitis, however the conversation evolved to discuss injuries on a more holistic scale. How dealing with injuries can catalyse internal personal growth beyond just dealing with the physical pain.

#34 LIVE CURIOUS, LIVE KIND, LIVE GREAT WITH THE JONESYS

Together they are driven to challenge traditional conventions of what it means to ‘settle down’ and prove that adulthood, and parenthood can still be fun. Embarking into the Australian Outback for 90 days and over 1,8000km with their now one-year-old Morgan. This conversation could catalyse you to revaluate your own values and beliefs.

#35 HUMILITY IN ULTRA ENDRUANCE WITH IESTYN LEWIS 

“…I don’t think I’ve even been prepared to make single minded sacrifices to get faster… the amount of training to knock off a few seconds… seemed like a big lore of diminishing returns for me…but I always loved the mountains.. and when I got scared of climbing… I drifted back into running…instead of training harder to go faster, I figured it was easier to go longer.”

#36 CHANNELLING SWIMMING & RESILIENCE WITH ANNE HENDERSON

“It keeps coming back to needing to be that very self driven athlete. But also an athlete that understands, to some degree some emotional intelligence and they’re willing to be vulnerable in that moment and reach out for help.”.
