Top WARMUPS before workouts & WHY
Benefits of warming up:
Reduces risk of injury
Loosens up the joint
Better performance during vigorous exercise
More blood (nutrients & o2) flow to the muscle ——————————
Think about it, do you eat meat the instant you throw it on the skillet or wait until it cooks through?

Have you been off, lethargic, depressed, irritable or lacking energy recently ? 😰 I bet I know why .
Every year I have problems with seasonal depression or the winter blues. In this city we don't get a lot of vitamin D in the colder months, because of a shortened period of sunlight durring the day ... and these last couple weeks it's been VERY cloudy ☁️So I have been using my therapy light the last little while, which I usually break out around October and use till about February. It also helps to supplement with more vitamin D, or possibly try indoor tanning which I find to be very helpful. Remember there's nothing wrong with self care, 'you can't pour from an empty cup'
As always training and rest can help your mental state significantly, but its important to look at the bigger picture of why you might be a bit 'off' depression is not something I take lightly, I've delt with it off and on my whole life. So its important for me to always check in and see how my clients are doing in training as well as day to day life. I'm into preventive health care as much as fitness. So I always try to steer people away from these things before they materialize.

💪Make exercise functional!💪
Sometimes the workout of the day is carrying a fifty pound suitcase with a broken wheel up the Matterhorn. Well not quite the Matterhorn but still a decent mile hike to our house in Zermatt 😆. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
You don’t always have to go to the gym to push your body. Looking out for opportunities to sweat a little during our regular routine can be just as beneficial as a designated exercise session in SOME ways. Recent research from Duke University showed comparable benefits between isolated short bouts of exercise and continuous 30-60 minute sessions assuming those isolated bouts added up to the same duration/intensity total. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
What do you think!? What daily activities can you modify to turn into exercise? 💪👇
Just listed this really pretty 11 x 14 piece on the Etsy shop. It turned out so colorful with a bunch of awesome cells 😊💕💜💙🧡💚

❗️I’ve been getting client enquiries asking how do they fast track their progress, some even mentioning they’ve bought peptides and fat burners!?? to get results! I think in today’s fitness industry we have no regard for sustainability or safety and that’s why no one can stick to a program. I’ve devised the uplift pyramid above to highlight the things which will guarantee results.
1. Avoid stressors that can hinder your fitness progress. The stress hormone cortisol can cause cravings for junk food and excessive eating. It can also throw your fitness routine out the window and lead to irregular sleeping patterns. Negative people can also be stressful and I advise you to remove them 😝🙋🏻♀️
2. Sleep and recovery: sleep deprivation (less than 6 hours a night) can lead to abnormal eating patterns (yeno, wanting to down a whole pint of ben and Jerry’s at 10pm in the night) and can cause weight gain. Plus no one wants to train when they can barely keep their eyes awake. That leads me on to my next point, recovery - exhaustion is a thing and can throw yourentire routine off, so make sure you allocate time daily to do “you” things, whether that is to watch your Netflix show (not the entire series), read a book or enjoy a hot bath. It also aids in recovery from strenuous workouts which assists in muscle repair and building 💪🏻
3. Working out. Shocking I know it’s the 2nd Phase of the pyramid but the truth is you cannot out train a poor diet. People are complicating exercise these days and you literally only need to train 4-5 x per week to have the body of your dreams. It’s about intensity and training with intent. Doing 50 squats with no care for form or building up progressive overload will get you no where. Add metabolic conditioning to train other components on fitness and your good to go 🙌🏼
4 . Eating. Once again we are hearing people over complicating their nutrition. The basics remain the same, enjoy a nutritious and varied diet, consume as many vegetables as you can stomach, watch out for trans fats and added sugars. Our philosophy is you need to fuel your body effectively pre and post workout and that’s where our handy friends carbohydrates come in.
If it looks like I’m dying it’s because I am 🙃 did these 3 exercises, plus some box jumps and pullups, in a circuit this morning. Ran through it 5 times and thought I was having a heart attack #TheDrama#StillKickin#HappyLife ☀️
Throwing it back to what went down earlier this week // The best result the men’s waterpolo team has ever had! Silver medal at the @fina1908 World Cup.
Team work is dream work. Awesome bunch of blokes. Thanks for all the support.
TAKE ME BACKKKK! 😫😫 Throughly missing the adventures out on the dunes. I could seriously roam around out there forever. I wouldn’t have this excursion any other way than draped in my @stigma.activewear gear!! Just got off work & starting to unwind for the day, anyone else?💘

Almost One whole year since this photo was taken. One whole year of ups and downs, weight loss and weight gain, probably almost 300 sessions at @f45_training_chermside
One whole year of back and forth with eating, injuries, dreading training in the morning, and muscle pain... but it has been one whole year of NOT being pregnant 😂 (well 1.5years of not being pregnant but who's counting 👀 ) which has meant I've been able to train for a whole year and start to mentally feel better about myself.
Getting fitter isn't only a physical thing it's a mental thing too! I'm so very happy that, even though I shit myself every cardio day, I still go to f45 and get some exercise into my day, because it has shown me how much exercise helps your mental capacity to get through LIFE! (being a mum, a wife, etc) and being able to check my husband out while he trains helps too 😂
If you're sitting on the couch eating a tub of ice-cream and wanting to get fit, tomorrow may not be Monday, but who the hell actually sticks to things that start on a Monday? Start on a Friday! 😂 we all know that's when we're the most excited LMAO #freakyfriday instead of dropping it low how about you get under a barbell and squat it low gf #ineedtotakemyownadvice ✌️
All thanks to @mp_lyriq for the ass grabs
And @erin_phillips1@stavros_papss@firstname.lastname@example.org@hanko_f45@che_xo JUN @shannonhope_makeupartist Heather and everyone else who pushes me everyday!
Can't wait to be fit and wear a bikini one summer 😌
Endurance training typically doesn’t require heavy weights, but it does require a challenging amount of repetitions. -
If you guys decide to try these, try them back to back for 15-25 repetitions back to back and you’ve got yourself a super LEG BURNER! 🔥 enjoy the work 😈
