Posted by on Oct 18, 2017 in Fat loss, Life, Personal Training | 0 comments

Happy Thursday     In today's edition of Thursday's training I am going to share with you my number one tip for better movement and we are going to talk about HIIT that is High Intensity Interval Training.   Movement, it's such a fundamental part of our lives yet we often take it for granted. It's only when movement has gone that we realise what we once had.   Whether you want to be a great athlete or you simply just want to enjoy life injury/pain free then you need to learn to move well.   I always find it interesting that we are taught to read, write, add, subtract...

Functional Movement Screen - Hawkes Bay The Functional Movement Screen is an innovative system used to evaluate movement pattern quality in clients and athletes. The screen shows imbalances and asymmetries that the body has developed over the years.   The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) consists of 7 distinct tests to evaluate movement patterns and asymmetries, providing insight into mechanical restrictions and potential risk for injury. The test is scored from 0-21, and studies have shown that scores below 14 are correlated with a 50% higher risk of injury, which makes the FMS an...

Strength Sessions & How To Get Abs

Posted by on Oct 9, 2017 in Fat loss, Personal Training, Workouts of the Week | 0 comments

Happy Tuesday I love strength training and let's face it life is easier when you're stronger. It's easier to carry the shopping, it's easier to carry the kids and it's easier to haul yourself up the Peak. It's what gives you the ability to run faster, jump higher and shed more body-fat   You can't build a house without a solid foundation and strength training is that solid foundation.   For my workout I did some Turkish Get Up (TGU) practice.   What is the Turkish Get Up? It's a highly effective, highly functional exercise that uses the whole body. T.G.U's require massive...

Happy Monday Everyone. Hope you had a great weekend and Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there! I love bucket lists. Having a bucket list is like having a goal.

I am going to rank them into 4 different categories from beginners to elite level bucket. All of these physical feats are challenging but doable. See how many you can check off the bucket list   Beginners Bucket   1 - Conquer the chin up...

Paul’s Before and After – 12 Week Transformation Challenge

Posted by on Jun 5, 2017 in Fat loss, Nutrition, Personal Training | 0 comments

Happy Tuesday   I hope you all had a wonderful Queens birthday!   Doesn’t the Queen look good for 91 years old?  - Not that it is the actual Queens birthday 😉   Did you know, the reason the Queen’s birthday is celebrated on the first Monday of June is because of the weather. A tradition started in 1748 by George II. George was born in November and felt the weather would be too cold for a birthday parade so he moved it to June. All British Sovereign's now have the option of celebrating an ‘official’ birthday and a ‘real’ birthday.   The irony is it is the start of winter for...

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. Krystie here today!! Paul’s apparently on holiday (or as he calls it, writer's block) 🙂   We woke up early on Saturday morning and headed out on the bikes to watch the sunrise. Waiting for Paul to put his make-up on, we missed the sunrise, but headed out anyway. Along past the water, through to Haumoana, then ended up in Havelock, where we caught a ride back to our place from my parents! The bike ride all in all took us a leisurely 1 hour 40. We then headed out for brunch.   Sunday brought us a day of work…. Yes we have been...
