Michelin Star Chefs & Fat Loss

Happy Monday Everyone! Hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine!   Below are 7 points to consider when working with fat loss. 1 - The best diet   If someone tells you the best diet is fill in the blank then please take it with a pinch of salt. Everybody is different and there is no one size fits all approach. The key is to simply listen to your body and let your results be an indicator as to whether or not you're doing what’s best for you. 2 - You cannot out-train a bad diet There are around 300 calories to a...

What Inspires Me!!

Happy Monday People   I hope you all had a lovely weekend   Before I get into this weeks newsletter I just wanted to say congratulations and great job Bridget for running the Hawkes Bay Marathon and raising some much needed money for KidsCan 🙂 Recently I was asked the question -  ‘ what/who inspires you to train?’   Honestly there's so much, that said, I thought I would put a little series together of the people who inspire me in the world of fitness.   There is an underlying theme to all the stories I am going to share....

It’s kind of like having the worst hangover ever… forever :(

Happy Monday In last weeks newsletter I shared with you the most important exercise of them all… Breathing. In this weeks newsletter I thought I would share the second most important exercise. The reason it is the second most important exercise is simply because without breathing, well your dead. But this exercise which creates a whole system can be a mess but you wouldn’t necessarily die from it. Life would just suck...alot! What I am talking about is without a doubt one of the most overlooked exercises and systems within the sphere of...

The Number One Most Important Movement

Happy Monday, hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We finished our weekend with the outdoor fire pit cranking, toasting bananas and dark chocolate in tinfoil for dessert, watching the warming sun fade, and the night sky shine upon us. Milly went to bed with chocolate covered lips and a smile of satisfaction. Anyway, on to the post. You may be wondering what the most important movement is? We would be dead if we didn't do it... can you guess?   Out of every single movement we do, this is by far the most important, yet so many of us are...

Are you growing older or younger?

Happy Monday, Hope you all had a lovely weekend. It was Paul's birthday on Sunday  (another year celebrating how awesome his body can move and feel), and we celebrated with a healthy homemade carrot cake (which was quite yummy may I add), with friends and family and a relaxed walk down to the wild beach (wasn't the weather a little chilly over the weekend?). Anyway, on to the newsletter - take it away Paul 🙂 You are amazing, probably the most awesome creation the world has ever known. You were born with a perfect body design and a brain that...

Why your Back Hurts when doing Deadlifts and Swings (Includes Video)

Why your Back Hurts when doing Deadlifts and Swings (Includes Video)

    The kettlebell swing, the deadlift, the hip thrusters, were not responsible for hurting your back. The way you do them did. In fact doing deadlifts, swings and hip thrusters are great for your back, you just have to do them right. The deadlift done wrong will leave you in a world of back pain but the deadlift done right is one if not the best things you could do to bulletproof your back. Side note - - I would highly recommend doing a functional movement screen test to see if you have earned the right to deadlift or swing. Yes...

From 10 Push Ups to Absolute Machine

Happy Monday Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed the Hawkes Bay sunshine.     In today's newsletter I thought I would introduce you to Tony         The first time I met Tony he struggled to do 10 push ups. I am not going to say he was unfit, it was more like he hadn’t done any serious training in a long while. Tony started out at our fitnesscamps and progressed on to one on one sessions. He truly embraced the fitness lifestyle and went from not doing a lot, to consistent training sessions. With Tony...

So in today’s newsletter I thought I would...

The Antifragile Fall Matrix

The Antifragile Fall Matrix

Antifragility is a property of systems that increase in capability, resilience, or robustness as a result of stressors, shocks, volatility, noise, mistakes, faults, attacks, or failures. It is a concept developed by Professor Nassim Nicholas Taleb in his book, Antifragile   I was first introduced to the Antifragile Fall Matrix by Dr Perry Nickelston founder of ‘Stop Chasing Pain'. Dr Perry based his fall matrix on a few key ideas… 1 - We fall down and when we do, we need to be able to get back up   The Fall Matrix is based on the...
