Up Or Down? It’s All In Your Mind.

And girl, don’t I know that after the day I had yesterday.

It’s so easy to forget who you are.
It’s so easy to forget what you've done.
It’s so easy to forget the love you treat people with.

It’s especially easy when the song on repeat in your head is what you aren’t, what you can’t do and what you don’t have.

Yesterday I spoke with Kerwin Rae on his podcast.
It was a really great experience and I enjoyed talking with Kerwin.

Before our chat I was definitely operating from a space where It was easy to forget.

I was focused on:
What I’m not.
What I can’t do.
What I don’t have.

So talking about what I have done,
who I am, what I stand for
and what I have built in The Sports Model Project was a beautiful and timely reminder.

Because if your up or down,
it’s all in your own mind.

It’s what you focus on.

I’m not telling you this as some guru.
I’m sharing this because I know it will help.

There is a really similar idea that athletes use, that I believe you should too.

See athletes are a little obsessive
they focus on the mistakes they make,
they beat themselves up and they very quickly forget what they have done well. (Feel familiar?)

So athletes learn to build a showreel in their mind.

They teach themselves a highlight tape that they have saved in their own mind. Each success, amazing floor routine, hand spring, layout, back squat or glute-ham raise gets saved in one mental movie.

Each image gets tagged with the colours they saw at the time, the tastes they experienced and the smells, then they replay that show reel over and over in their mind, especially when they are stressed.

What sort of show reel do you have?

It may just be thoughts and word right now.

Is it a reel of the best stuff
or a reel of the worst?
Where did it even come from?

Maybe it’s time to actively build your showreel?
Fill it with the good stuff you are doing and replay as needed.

If that feels daunting, a nice first step is to write five things you have done well in the last week and start to repeat that to yourself.

So I’m really thankful for appearing on Kerwin's Podcast yesterday,
it was a reminder of my showreel and of what I have done.

Whether I’m up or down it’s all in my own mind.
It IS what I tell myself.

I have been an elite gymnast.
I have developed a powerful mindset.
I am a world champion.
I have over a decade of experience and expertise as a trainer and coach.
My peers are world leaders in training and nutrition.
I have built a business that gives me freedom AND delivers a worldclass service
I do help women all over the world to transform themselves.
I have created an environment, a team where women can support each other.
I do love with my whole heart, all the time. 

This is the principle of radical responsibility in action.

“I am wholly responsible for my feelings, for my actions, my words and the thoughts I choose to keep."


"I am responsible for observing those feelings, thoughts, words and actions”

Radical responsibility is one of the 8 principles we live by in The Sports Model Project.

That’s just one reason why I’m so proud of my team, my program and the absolute positive force we are in helping women transform their bodies, their minds and their lives.

Is it your turn?

Space in my team is filling up.
We only have ten spots left.

Once they are filled we will be closing entry for the foreseeable future.
Entry into The Sports Model Project is via application only.
This is only for women who are ready to be the hardest worker in the room.

Overwhelming love, light and gratitude.
Hattie xoxo

Sometimes we just need to be reminded how far we have come.

Sometimes we just need to admire women who have blazed a trail.
Sometimes we need to be reminded of how much we are capable of.

They don't know who you are,
they have no idea what you can do,
no idea how much power YOU wield.

Sure it's an ad, but it's a reminder.

As you let your light shine you give permission for others to do the same.

I am thankful for Serena Williams letting her light shine despite dealing with poverty, sexism, explicit racism and some of the vilest bullying on the internet that any person in history has EVER dealt with.

She lept every hurdle with good grace and amazing style. 

23 Grand Slam singles titles the most Grand Slam tournament wins in the Open Era.
14 Grand Slam doubles titles, all with her sister Venus, and the pair are unbeaten in Grand Slam doubles finals.
At age 31, becomes the oldest female tennis player to be ranked number 1 since computer rankings began in 1975. This is the sixth time in her career to be ranked number one.
4 Olympic gold medals 1 in women's singles 3 in women's doubles—an all-time record shared Venus.
She is the only woman on the Forbes list of the 100 highest paid athletes
Speaks conversational French.

Serena started practising with Venus and Her Mum and Dad on a local court in Compton a place where people were doing it really tough at the time.

There are barriers to your greatness. They are made to be hurdled.

We are swimming against the tide of history but there was a time not that long ago that we were thought too weak to run marathons now we beat mean in the ultra-marathon.

There are barriers to your greatness, hurdle them.

Show them what crazy can do.

"I have the good privilege of knowing Hattie Boydle as a colleague, lifting partner, and friend."

"As a colleague, I can attest that Hattie is driven to learn the best possible strategies for her clients and followers. She loves learning new material and is never content with her knowledge and understanding of the world. Her work ethic is admirable and she cares deeply for the people who put their trust in her to help them improve their posing, physiques, and well-being. We put on seminars together and the energy and commitment she has for the attendees are second to none; it’s a pleasure watching her perform."

"As a lifting partner, Hattie is consistent, accountable, and motivating. Simply watching her train is a beautiful thing as she approaches lifting like an art form. She hones her skills and pays close attention to mechanics, program design, and physiology. I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who trains as hard as Hattie and that’s saying a lot considering I’ve worked with 2,000+ clients in my 22 year personal training career."

"As a friend, Hattie has helped me be the best I can be. She pushes me to find true happiness by encouraging me to relax, improve my business strategies, consider different avenues, and make good long term decisions."

"Hattie is the real deal and I vouch for her character and expertise."

After Reflection? New Values, New Drive.

I really hope your break and your holidays were amazing!

It was my birthday last week and we just had Australia Day here in Sydney.

So now I'm back at full speed, training and writing and coaching and thinking.

Reflection is a really powerful tool and this last few months have been a challenge for me! But as always, challenges make you go back to drawing board, make you think they make you refine your beliefs and your methods.

Last year I really started to think about the principles I have learned, live by and teach all my girls The Sports Model Project.

Seeing as it's the start of the year, I thought we could begin with a bang.

These values were written as a creed to be said and repeated.

It's a statement of what women like us do,
of how we live and what we are always working to be.
It's also a powerful reminder of who we are when we need to refocus and redirect our energy.



It's Time, Live Your S
pirit, Be Your Vision.

1: Be the hardest worker in the room:

I will work harder than every other person who is in any room with me. I recognise that often the hardest work is knowing when to rest or be playful.

2: I Promise To Fail:

Quickly, often, hard, forward and most importantly with good grace.

Another word for that is practice.

Every attempt is practice for the next one. Every single rep, set, meditation, show, interview, trial and error makes me better.

I have a practice mindset.

I will not get high or low on results.

I will measure my success on how well I follow my process or do the things that I actually want to do in this life. Another word for doing the things you want in this life is discipline.

Even then, every time I don’t quite live up to my standard is just another practice at me developing discipline.

This is the route to mastery.

3: Radical responsibility:

I am wholly responsible for my feelings, for my actions, my words and the thoughts I choose to keep.

I am responsible for observing those feelings, thoughts, words and actions

4: Radical self-acceptance:

I am working to accept absolutely everything about my life and be aware of what is going on in my mind or body in any moment.

This is an inner process of accepting my actual, present moment experience and does not include putting up with harmful behaviour from others or most importantly myself.

5: Radical Resourcefulness: 

I can overcome my challenges!

I look to solve my challenges before I ask for help.
I ask for help as soon as I need it

If I don’t have them already I can develop the resources to overcome my challenges.

It is my responsibility to find the answer to my challenges or the tools I need to overcome them.

I will communicate my challenges clearly while simultaneously solving them myself.

I will ask for the maximum amount of help I need to overcome these challenges.

6: Radical self-growth:

I am committed to my ongoing and never ending growth.

I am committed to fully experiencing my feelings.
Especially the painful ones

Once experienced I am fully capable of letting these feelings go.

I am committed to observing my thoughts, words and actions and my reactions to them without judgment or needing to “do” anything.

I am wholeheartedly determined to work on them and to love the person I am right now in this moment.

7: Radical Community:

I am committed to the ongoing growth of the other women in The Sports Model Project and I will help them understand, embody and live out the principles of The Sports Model Project.

I will go out and live these principles in my family, work, gym, friend and social environment and I am committed to helping people live these principles out there too.

8: Radical Leadership:

I am a bright shining light!

As I let my light shine brighter I give space for others to do the same.

I will lead by doing.
I will tell by showing.
I will talk by listening.
I will make things easy by working hard.

I will hold myself to the highest standard of self-compassion.
I will hold myself to the highest standard of self-love.

I am inspiring others to do the same.

This is how we live.
This is who we are.

Are YOU one of us?

Love and Light Hattie

Have You Ever Won And Still Felt Like A Failure?

You achieved your big, scary goal and then you got that sinking feeling?

A sense of anti-climax because what you wanted all that time suddenly wasn’t so satisfying?
Or even worse, the feeling that you are a fraud; that maybe you don’t even deserve your success or perhaps it was a fluke,
a one off,
a bit of luck?

That’s actually way worse than failing.
We all imagine failing, we all imagine the worst case scenario.
Our brain runs those scenarios all the time because as much as we crave success,

failing is something we are prepared for.

We don’t imagine that winning the gold medal will be hollow.
We don’t believe that we will feel empty after finding love.
So what happens?
We believe we want to achieve things for their own sake.

“I want to be world champion because I want to be the best”

“I want to have a boyfriend because I want to be in a relationship”.

But these achievements; these milestones are just vehicles to help us feel a certain way. These vehicles let us live up to the values we have and feel the emotions we want to feel.
We want the gold because we want to be significant, we want to recognized by the rest of the world, we want to be important.

Ever hear somebody say “I just feel like the passion isn’t there anymore”?
That person wants passion more than a relationship or even love.
We get what we “want” and realise it wasn’t what we wanted at all.
Failing isn’t the worst thing that can happen.
In fact failure often spurs us on to greatness.

The ultimate failure is success without fulfillment.

It’s the most hollow feeling in the world.

If we want success AND happiness
we need a much deeper understanding of what drives us

What is our big why?
Why do we want to win?
What are are our values?
Will our values be satisfied if we achieve our goals?

Getting this right, matching our values to our goals is the secret to having the life we want, having the relationships we want. It’s the key to living with joy and having great passion for our great work.

We got into training and exercise because we felt bad about ourselves.
Because we hated our legs or the way that the fat in our stomach wobbled.
We started dieting because deep down we imagined that nobody would love us truly when we were so horrible to look at.

How could they love us when we couldn’t even look at ourselves in the mirror?
But that stopped being our story.

It’s not my story anymore!!

Now we are driven by more than that.

Now we have a vision for ourselves.
Now we know the majesty and power that lies inside of us.
So it’s time to make it explicit.
It’s time to yell it out
to scream our values to the world
“I am love”
“I am playfull”
“I am a warrior”
"I want connection"
"I want love"
"I want to be a positive force in this world"

That’s what I am.

What are you?
What is your big why?
Why do you want it?
What are your values?
Will your values be satisfied if you reach your big goal?
What vehicle will help you become truely successful?
What will allow you to have success and happiness?

I’d love you to email me back your responses.

This how the process of transformation starts,

from within then, it spreads through every cell of your body until
you're a women transformed in the image you created in your mind. Women come to me believing that they only want to transform their bodies and get on stage.

The physical transformation is the cornerstone but there is more than that.
The power you have in you is enough to transform your body, your mind and your life.
That is the process I take my girls through In The Sports Model Project.

We are happy, joy filled women. We are also disciplined, competitive and we love with a full and open heart. We are champions.
Is that what you want?

Have you been training for at least two years, really hard?
Are YOU ready for the next level?

The answers with the most thought are considered first.

Here's Why Setting Goals Doesn't Work

Are you casting your mind back over the year that has passed
and towards the year that is beckoning us?

What most people focus on is goals they had and didn't achieve.

"I still want to get on stage"
"I still want to be confident in myself"
"I still want to win a fitness show"

"But I didn't do it this year."
"So I need to set some goals for next year and then I'll finally get there"
So we write down these goals yet next year when we reflect
those goals remain unfulfilled once more.
Next thing you know you have been thinking about it,
setting goals and not getting there for two or three or four years.

Most people just don’t get past the goal setting phase.

That goal is really just a nice thought that we have projected into the future and create positive thoughts around.

It's a dream
“My dream is to get on stage and win a fitness shows that iIcan finally feel confident in myself”

We have lost the plot when It comes to motivation, goals and positive thinking.
We have started to believe that just THINKING positive will make things happen, that BEING positive is the way to achieve our goals and ambitions.

Just "putting it out into the universe" is not going to make it happen

We get so focused on goals and dreams
and the negative flip side
which are worries and anxieties
that we totally neglect the things that actually create change.

So what actually creates change? It’s our daily habits.

It’s the things that we do over and over again.
It’s the things that actually have control over.
What we eat
What time we go to sleep
What thoughts we think
What we do in the gym

Setting goals will not change what you do each day
but if you set your daily habits up right you will inevitably progress towards your goals.

The trick with creating new habits is not to change too many things at once.
You’re a human just like the rest of us, changing too many things at once leads to overwhelm and it also leads to doing a poor job of allot of things rather than nailing a few things and ingraining them in your psyche.
Pick one or maybe two habits that you want to adopt.
Work on those habits for two weeks.
Aim nail those habits 90% of the time so that over a two week period you’re nailing 12 out of 14 days.

If you’re successful pick another habit and try nailing it AS WELL for the next block two weeks.

If you don’t nail your habit 90% of the time sit down and do a little analysis using the simple 5 Whys Formula. I

Essentially keep asking why you didn't hit your habit until you get to the root of has stopped you. Often it's not what you imagine.
Ie: "I only meditated 4 out of 14 days"
Q: Why didn’t I mediate?
A: "I was too busy"
Q: Why were you too busy?
A: "I had heaps of work on and the dog ate my homework"
Q: Why was work so overwhelming?
A: "I didn’t organise my calendar the week before and all of this stuff piled up on me."

Q: Why didn’t you organise your calendar
A: "I don’t have a habit of doing it."
Outcome: "I actually need to start using a diary to organise my work training and life. I'll nail that for two weeks and then start my meditation habit"

That should be the habit she adopts first so that she can organise her time and then fit in a ten minute meditation each day

You have dreams
You have goals
The next step is to learn the habits that will make you successful.

That’s what I teach the girls in The Sports Model Project:
How to make dreams and goals a reality by tasking control of your daily habits and your mindset and at the end they are transformed physically and emotionally.
I only accept girls who have been training
HARD with weights for at least 12 months
sorry F45 and bootcamps don’t cut it.

It All Counts

What you say on the internet.
How you behave in traffic.
Paying your bills.

The way you do one thing is the way you do everything.

I see it over and over again in women I coach.

The girls who get the best results are conscientious, on time for meetings, they are gracious when complemented and effusive in their praise of others. They have learned to have compassion for themselves.

They are resourceful!

The success of others motivates them to reach greater heights, these girls emanate positive energy and receive it back.

So of course they get the results they want from their training and nutrition.
Their success is an extension of the way they live their life.

Beware....

It can go another way too.

The agents of average band together and snipe from the sidelines,
they swear and undermine others.

They are late to work.
They don’t pay their bills.
They aren’t recycling their plastic.
All the while blaming others for the glory days they never had.

Their actions are predicated on one idea

“How does this serve me”

Blind to the truth that a good life and the things that it offers are created by asking the opposite question

“How does my thought/word/action serve others, In doing so how do I serve my greater purpose in this life.

See virtue is it’s own reward.
Acts of virtue lead to a virtuous circle.
The way you do one thing is the way you do everything.

It all counts.

The best part is YOU can control this.
You control your thoughts words and actions.
This is what I teach the girls in The Sports Model Project.
