Back at the start of the UK lockdown in March. I was inspired to create something and give support to my podcast audience. The idea for a virtual event pulled together a fantastic bunch of people, all willing to give their time and wisdom to the issues and speak.
Greg Fearon and Gillian Davies from the fit and fabulous podcast were eager to take part and delivered a great talk on how to stay fit for life. Once the event was over, I had to bring them onto the podcast.
Gillian was a few weeks back and today is the turn of Greg Fearon. Just like his co-host, he is a women’s transformational coach. Over the last five years, he has helped hundreds of women feel better. Get fitter, healthier stronger and enjoy life without looking at the scales.

Greg, like everyone, has a life journey and where he is now could not have been predicted from where he stated. In his words
“Growing up, I was the classic fat kid that was rubbish at sport.”
Puberty and peer pressure change that and he developed the ability to run and a keen interest in sports. It led him to university and sports science degree.
It was a passion he did not follow, and he chose a career in people management. He worked for some big organisation like the carphone warehouse. After several management roles, he ended up in the UK national health service leading to a position managing the gynaecology and maternity departments of a hospital.
The needs of professional women
For Greg, this was a glimpse in the world of women’s health. Throughout his management career, he has maintained his connection with fitness. He was always coaching people towards healthier lifestyles, with the NHS role, he had new insights into the needs of professional women.

Focus Coaching: Are you getting stuff done?
I have an accountability partner, it is a great relationship we touch in once a week and support each other to find clarity. Like many people, she had some challenges to deal with. Now here the thing is, she knows what needs to be done but was not doing it.
With Focus Coaching I was able to help.
The point is for some tasks, we have built-in resistance and for others, it is a question of procrastination. We all have will power, but it is a limited resource.
At the start of the day when the mind is fresh, it is easy to push through. However, do a few taxing tasks, have a few meetings and conversations and that is it. The brain gets tired and “Will Power” is gone.
There are good physiological reasons for this loss of performance. Our brains only have so much capacity and it needs to be managed, We must choose our priorities.
Focus Coaching Gets Results.
For years I have used a process with my marketing clients to help them stay focused and be held accountable. It was a technique that I learnt during my coach training, I never gave it a name and the clients would not have known they were being coached.
I call it Focus Coaching. It takes just 20 minutes. That is enough time to set out your challenge, review the resistance and agree on a strategy with a smart deadline.
THIS STUFF WORKS!
If you want to move forward towards intention, get stuff done, or even stick to goals. It is the accountability that will make it happen.
