Exercises to burn more calories over christmas – resist the momentum against you!!

Are you enjoying the warmer weather we are having in Adelaide? Have you started to attend a few extra barbeques and 'Christmas' parties already?! I certainly feel like the social calendar is getting busier, and so the demand for time is increasing. So I'd like to...

Why strength training is the key to looking and feeling better

With summer just around the corner many of us are starting to think about easing ourselves back into our old exercise routines. Whether it be to lose a couple of kilos, or to ensure we feel just  more comfortable spending time at the beach, most are slowly starting to...

How can strength training help your walking? 

Walking is easy right? We learn to do it from around the first birthday mark and continue to work on it through our younger years until it becomes an action that we really think very little about. In this time we are building a base level of strength and function....

Granny arms, big bellies, rotund behinds…. Can we choose where to lose our fat from?

"Give me abdominal exercises to lose fat around my stomach! Can I do triceps exercises to get rid of my granny arms? These are statements or questions I have heard more times than I can count. It is a question steeped in marketing, wishful thinking and a desire for...

The big ‘O’ word: Osteoporosis and Exercise

Osteoporosis is a global disease in which the remodelling process (replacement of new bone for the old) results in an excessive loss in bone mass. This issue here is that it leads to an increase in our fracture rate (and severity), musculoskeletal impairment and...

From 0-to-1000km: Mobility for cyclists to keep you riding longer!

Wow, I can't believe its only 4 weeks until we leave for Melbourne to start our 1000km bike ride back to Adelaide for the Leukaemia Foundation's RideasOne! It's been a little while since my last post on the series - sorry! But I promise I've been on the bike!  ...

Trying to put cancer into words is beyond difficult. It is more than just a series of statistics; it is a ruthless disease is something that has devastated us all in one-way or another, whether we have personally been affected or we have seen loved ones go through the...

My Training Diary

Entry 1 I’ve been training for the 2018 Paris-Dakar rally for a few months now. I’ve got a fair amount of time to prepare but it’s a bloody gruelling and unforgiving event so I got to prepare properly. My preparation strategy? I’m just smashing out the kms! The event...

Can AFLW, WBBL and W-League influence women’s health?

I sat glued to my television tonight watching the first ever women’s AFL game. I am in awe! Awe of the strong, fast, resilient women who have worked exceptionally hard behind the scenes to put this spectacle on. Awe in the spectators who have come out in their...

FROM 0-TO-1000KM: The Value of COMMUTING while the TDU is on!

Adelaide is arguably Australia's best city to be a cyclist in, and at the moment, with the Tour Down Under (TDU) in full flight, this is particularly the case! It is so good to see so many cyclists enjoying our beautiful roads, and in particular, the number of...

Don’t Run to get fit – don’t run to lose weight!

Let me start my clarifying that I would never want to discourage anyone from running! Even more so if you are on a journey to improve your health. My whole business and life mission is to help others achieve great health! And this is exactly why I don't think it is a...

FROM 0 TO 1000KM ‘RIDE AS ONE’ – MULTIPLE DAY BIKE EVENT PREP: Laying a solid foundation

Too much of a good thing is never good. Well, this also holds true when it comes to training for a specific event. While specificity of training (that is, training specifically for the event one will compete in) is very important, specialising too early, or being too...

Stressed out? Mindful exercising may be your cure!

I am sure that you will agree that in today’s modern society, we are all constantly physically and mentally stretched to our limits. Stress, anxiety, multi-tasking and non-stop days where we feel like we are on auto-pilot are the norm for most. Take one of my closest...

Running and Ultra-Marathon: Is your brain up to the challenge?

Are you mentally tough enough to complete an ultra-marathon? It probably comes as no surprise that evidence is mounting that your mental capacity has a say in your success or failure at such a goal. But the specific cognitive abilities that determine your outcome may...

Life after Military Service: What does it mean for your health?

Transitioning from military service to civilian life can hold many challenges for veterans and health matters can be at the forefront. Life in military service typically involves free medical, dental and health support with many systems in place including compulsory...

Man vs. Horse: Two runners, one winner. Who will it be?

Who would win a foot race between a man and a horse? Sorry if you are waiting for a punchline, it is a legitimate question. To answer that, a clarifying question is needed- over what distance? Ok, let’s day Melbourne Cup distance- two miles. The race record for the...

Creating change: Do you need to be unhappy before you can make long lasting behavioral change

There is no doubt, we have all tried to change something in our life. Whether it was losing weight, sleeping better, eating healthier or moving more. Did it work? Has it lasted or have you slipped back into old habits? A well-respected lecturer in the area of...

You’ve made the wrong New Year’s Resolution

Ok, I’m not going to berate you. I think its pretty normal that by now, the end of January, you have probably not continued with your New Years Resolution. After all, we know that 88% of people are in the same boat! But why does this keep happening year after year?...

Neurotrophins: Fertilisers for your brain!

With Christmas come and gone for another year and along with it, the usual side effects of over eating and minimal exercise ie: blunted Leptin (hormones that inhibit hunger) and decreased nerve cell generation. It is time to throw some coal into your brain and plant...

Learn to Run Part 13: Forefoot running and the knee

As a runner, when this pursuit comes up in converstaion with non-runners (or jaded runners for that matter) the question that is usually asked (with just a sprinkling of smugness) is, 'so how are your knees?' My response is along the lines of 'fine thanks, how are...

What is your motivation: Should we look inside or out?

What drives our behaviours? Why do we do the things we do? The different reasons for motivation have been long reviewed. One in particular is whether motivation arises from inside (intrinsic) or outside (extrinsic) the individual. Different types of motivation...

Trepidation: Should we be using more than just medicine to help treat depression?

I attended an insightful evening at SAHMRI on depression. I don’t want to sound all melancholic at the start of this blog. However, quantitatively speaking, Australia is the unhappiest country in the world (per capita). We also have the highest prescription rate/use...

Do you master Gravity: Falls prevention through exercise

I don’t think I have enough fingers and toes to count the times I have heard clients utter the phrases, “now I am getting older, my balance is getting worse” and “I am scared of falling so I can’t do the things I used to” It is true, there are age related changes to...

We stand upon the foundations we built…..

Venice is my favorite city that I have traveled to thus far. Admittedly it isn't great for trail running, but its virtues make up for that short-coming. It is a unique place, and its fragility is evident. Every corner you turn there is evidence of ongoing maintenance...

How to lose fat with exercise Part 2

So to burn more fat you need to work at lower intensities in the "fat burning zone" right?? This is probably the number one exercise myth that despite it's lack of evidence never seems to be truly debunked. You still even see on the cardio gym equipment to this day...
