Posted by on Dec 17, 2017 in Life, Nutrition | 0 comments

Happy Monday All! I can't believe it is Xmas this time next week - where has this month gone?! We would just like to firstly say thank you to everyone who has supported Results over the past year. We really appreciate EVERY ONE of you. Our goal is to inspire and empower as many people as we can to live a healthier, happier life and we hope we are achieving this.   



As 2018 is just around the corner, and New Years Resolutions are a must, if you have any feedback, ideas, etc that you would like to put forward to make 2018 an even better year, then please feel free to email us as we really appreciate your thoughts. 



We would also like to acknowledge our awesome trainers, Kirstin and Kerry. Thank you both for all your help and dedication towards the Results Family. We know all the campers appreciate your enthusiasm in the training sessions.



And I (Krystie) would personally like to thank Paul for all his awesomeness towards Results. His countless hours with brainstorming and planning the next challenge/workout/course etc is next to none. His dedication to the health and fitness industry is phenomenal and he's always researching anything and everything so he has all the tools in his toolbox to ensure he can assist when a client has any questions about anything (quiz him, just make sure you have time to hear the answer as he loves a chat 🙂  Thank you Paul for everything. 


OK, on to the next topic: Over the Xmas Period we will be running the fitness camp sessions, please see hours below. We will be opening this to friends and family, so please bring along anyone who you think would benefit from our service.

Salted Almond Fudge - Eleanor Ozich



Stir together 1/4 cup pure maple syrup, 1/2 cup melted coconut oil, 1/2 cup almond butter and a pinch of sea salt until glossy and smooth. Pour in to a small tin lined with baking paper or bees wrap, and pop in the freezer to set for at least an hour.  
Slice in to bite size morsels, and enjoy. Best stored in the fridge. 

We wish everyone a very special Christmas. Enjoy spending time with family and friends, stay safe, keep moving and eating well and see you all soon!
