HOT WORX.

img_6020OK- I have to share with you my latest obsession…HOTWORX at Planet Beach, Polaris.

Think of it essentially as a private hot box (big enough for 2-3 people to exercise in comfortably) that has a large TV screen that displays a variety of different programs that guide you through exercises and movements.  HOTWORX is the first ever fusion of infrared heat and isometrics and is a virtually instructed exercise program designed for users to experience the many benefits of infrared absorption, while completing a 30-minute workout session.

There are so many different exercise programs to choose from (and just quietly…there are more on the way) so there is bound to be something for everyone. Whether you want an intense workout, a foam rolling session, a good stretch or even just some “me” time- you need to try HOTWORX. Check out some of the programs on offer at Planet Beach Polaris.

Current Body Stats- December 2016.

fullsizerenderOn Saturday morning I went and had a complimentary wellness and health screening, thanks to my husbands workplace. I was a little apprehensive about getting it done as for the past month or so I have been a little “relaxed” with my eating and training plans. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still training hard and eating well- but I am not being too strict in regards to hitting my macros 100% of the time nor am I setting any new records in the gym. I haven’t been too obsessive with food timing or holding back on non-tracked snacks or social events, as tis the season right?

Staying on Track while Travelling.

img_3438So the most popular question that I got asked before I left home was in regards to my eating and training whilst I am travelling. For those of you who know me personally, you know that these two things are a priority in my life and I consistently  plan them into my social plans/ regular routines  so that I can stick to my nutrition plan and training guideline as much as possible. Because fitness and food is a lifestyle for me. I am not training for a particular event nor do I have a finish  date in which I can “cheat”, “give up”, “let loose” etc. So for me, not a lot changes when I travel. But for those who struggle to stick to routine, I have decided to post some of my best tips and tricks to staying healthy and active, as well as “guilt-free” whilst away from home.

Aspire To Inspire.

3b04c91851c488b9cca250f5c9096fa7-1I have been inspired to add a new segment/tab to my website called “ASPIRE TO INSPIRE”. The inspiration came from someone who can best be described as not only a positive role model and huge inspiration in my life, but also a newly acclaimed mentor and friend. He approached me knowing that this website, which reaches hundreds of people everyday, would allow him to share his story. This amazing man, who has such a positive influence on so many people’s lives, has been battling mental illness and depression for a number of years and with his story hopes to inspire others to speak up, reach out and begin their journey of self discovery and self-worth.

The Aspire To Inspire tab will be updated on a monthly basis, with stories about people who will inspire you on your own journey in life, whether it be mental health, physical health or someone who simply aspires to inspire others… I want to share their story with you! If you know of someone who has a story to share or has reached a significant milestone or you would like to nominate a story yourself, please do not hesitate to contact me HERE!

Reflect and reset!

Not everyday has to be awesome- but find something awesome in every day!

JPEG image-C0141C6A85AF-1This week has been “one of those” weeks.  No, I take that back… the last few days have been “a few of those” days. This week actually started off pretty great.
I trained super hard on Monday and ate really well too. I did F45 as my 5am fasted cardio then followed it up with a full day at school and then one of my best Chest & Tris workouts at the gym.

On Tuesday, I smashed three awesome sessions. I started my day with an F45 class, as my fasted cardio, then trained Glutes and Hammies after meeting a girlfriend for pancakes as my pre workout fuel and then a wicked Back & Bis session with Ali in the evening.
