THE PHASE SiX PHILOSOPHY
Phase SiX was born when we decided to pursue our passion for unconventional training methods, media and entertainment. Prior to this, we found it extremely difficult to source quality education or trainers with expert knowledge of unconventional training methods. We were also extremely dissatisfied with the image of the fitness industry: the outdated (by at least 30 years) education curriculum being taught at “fitness” institutions and the focus on short term results and “high volume” training being spread through popular “functional fitness” franchises. This proliferation of unsustainable, poorly designed, short-term training style was causing many injuries and directly preventing people from achieving their goals. We were regularly confronted with this short-sighted mindset being rapidly spread and sold through mainstream media.
We saw Phase SiX as the Punk Rock of the industry, which would be a non-conformist brand set out to begin a REVOLUTION by uniting people around a shared purpose: to promote longevity, maximise potential, and bring value to the world. We set out to achieve this by sharing our passion with a global audience, providing them with innovative training, unconventional ideas and methods, as well as entertaining our audience with exciting content. We fought to switch the mentality of short-term results by focusing on health, and human and environmental longevity, by questioning the ’norm’ and creating a new paradigm for consumers. At the same time, we promote the connection that we all share by eradicating the segregation and tribalism of the fitness industry.
We started Phase SiX on 7 June 2018. We quickly realised we needed more education in order to achieve our goal of creating a revolution of informed, innovative and healthy people. We made a list of our greatest inspirations and elite coaches/trainers who we wanted to learn from, as well as experts, athletes and brands we wanted to collaborate with – and made it happen. We took all the money we had saved for a house and invested it in a 6-month trip around USA (hitting California, Texas and New York City). We trained, learnt from and worked with the likes of John Wolf and Shane Heins (Creators of the ONNIT education system), Cameron Shayne (Creator of Budokon), Roger Gracie (10x Jiu Jitsu World Champion), Maurício Gomes and many others. We brought a videographer along with us to document the entire trip, in pursuit of our goal to unite all practices of health, content-creation, goal-setting and longevity under one umbrella.
We now host revolutionary live events across the world and, alongside our online presence, provide elite education and innovative methods to millions of people. Our Phase SiX training program produces leaders, innovators and movers-and-shakers who are in control of their health and actions, and bring value to their community and environment. We have our very own production company, record company with signed artists, a non-profit organisation, apparel brand, as well as a host of sponsored high profile celebrities and elite athletes. We are here to UNITE FOR THE REVOLUTION!
In order to create a Revolution, we have developed SiX Phases of learning and action. The most value can be gained by thinking of our phases as similar to a belt rank system in martial arts, with each stage cultivating different strengths and skills. Individuals should strive to complete each Phase in order to enhance their ways of being, master their own self, bring value to those around them, and perform at their greatest potential.
Phase I Athletic Performance
“Carrying out of specific physical routines or procedures by one who is trained or skilled in physical activity. Performance is influenced by a combination of physiological, psychological, and socio-cultural factors.”
Phase I consists of physical and mental training to improve athletic performance. Through years of research and testing we have discovered the most efficient way to train: smarter, not harder. We focus on moving with intent, building strength and mobility simultaneously. By training with purpose we are able to create a strong foundation, shifting the weaknesses of the human body to a state of durability, and develop a strong mind-body connection. Phase I includes unconventional training methods (tools, strength and conditioning, chain movement patterns and calisthenics), durability (mobility and human longevity), crawling patterns (quadrupedal locomotion), combat (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) and recovery (meditation, decompression, visualisation, therapies and treatments).
Phase II Nutritional Optimization
“Balancing of feed ingredients and nutrients to meet the requirements of the animal for basic maintenance of physiological function, for growth, and for reproduction/lactation. The critical nutrient groups include energy components, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals.”
Phase II is all about providing the education and tools to ensure optimal intake for your body. This means food choices are aligned with individual goals, as well as supplementation (such as CBD products) as required to support athletes and address deficiencies. We have developed our own Phase SiX nutritional guidelines to promote awareness on the importance of food quality and source.
Phase III Paradigm Shift
“A fundamental change in approach or underlying assumptions.”
Phase III begins to broaden your horizons beyond physical training, driving self-awareness to understand that you are in control of your life, decisions and attitude. The central tenants of Phase III are education of the natural laws of the universe (law of vibration, law of attraction, thermodynamics and conservation of energy), mindset (positive mental attitude, enthusiasm and gratitude), self-development (achieving a definite purpose, setting goals and becoming result- orientated), discipline (achieving goals, focus, and following personal commands), visualisation, persistence and mastering of the SiX higher faculties (imagination, intuition, will, perception, memory and reason).
Phase IV Ecology Studies
“The study of the relationships between living organisms, including humans, and their physical environment; it seeks to understand the vital connections between plants and animals and the world around them.”
Phase IV extends beyond yourself and considers your small part within a wider universe. During this phase we implore you to acknowledge that your actions affect other humans, organisms and resources on Earth. Phase IV recognizes your role and responsibilities in the greater world, and focuses on environmental protection, animal welfare, preservation of ecosystem services, human ecology (relationships and social interaction), economics (consumption and material prosperity) andcommunity health (all living beings).
Phase V Content Creation
“The contribution of information to any media and most especially to digital media for an end-user/audience in specific contexts or the material people contribute to the online world.”
Phase V teaches how to share and distribute knowledge and experiences in captivating and entertaining formats. Phase V creates individuals with exceptional skills in producing high-quality content that provides real value to consumers, without cheap marketing gimmicks. This includes the study and application of multimedia production, social media use, podcast creation, entertainment, music production, documentation and other media production including film, photo, documentaries and news reports.
Phase SiX Unite for the Revolution
“To create a revolution, you need to unite people around a shared purpose. A revolution (from the Latin revolution, “a turnaround”) is a significant change that usually occurs in a short period of time.”
Phase SiX is where it all comes together, the peak of empowerment and connection to those around us. Here, we unite people around one shared purpose. Phase SiX creates leaders, not followers, with non-conformist attitudes. Those who complete Phase SiX are innovators, teachers and motivators who inspire others to maximise their potential and smash their preconceptions. They can overthrow the normal social order, in favour of a new system.
