Tell us a little bit about yourself and your role with Triumph & Disaster

Hello – my name is Connor, and I work in the Brand & E-Commerce Department at Triumph & Disaster, which at the moment is helping build community offline and online.

What does movement / exercise mean to you? How does Triumph & Disaster embody this?

Triumph & Disaster was started by ex-professional cricketer, Dion Nash, so exercise and movement has always been a part of the ethos from day one. The philosophy stems from taking moments in your day to do things for yourself, whether that’s looking after your skin and hair, or your physical and mental wellbeing. Personally, exercise and movement is release for me. We all get caught up in our day to day lives, but something as simple as a bike ride in the evening or an early morning session of some sort can make all the difference.

What are the next steps for you at T&D / what goals do you guys have for the rest of the year?

The skincare industry can be a messy place. There’s lots of big claims, with everyone at the moment taking a science first approach. We want to do our bit towards educating and demystifying what’s out there - and we’re committed to being transparent about our methods and approach.

Other than that we’re working on a couple of exciting new products (particularly for growers of beards), partnerships, and will be continuing our community events calendar which will hopefully involve more FAT workouts.

We’ve shared a few workouts together. What keeps you coming back?

I’ll do a class at the gym, or run around the field, but nothing quite compares to those early morning Friday sessions. Those sunrise sessions, Kev & Paul’s energy, the variety (of workout & location) – come on, you can’t beat it!

Could you share with us 3 pieces of advice you would give to someone on their mental and/or physical health journey?

Don’t be too hard on yourself, in your work life, social spaces and physical and mental journey. Speaking in a physical sense, find whatever’s going to get you outside and active and make it work on your terms. Finally, someone once mentioned to make the most out of those first few hours of your morning, because once the day sets in, everything you do is for someone else. I think there’s definitely truth in that.
