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....

Cancer related fatigue: Does exercise help or hinder?

Have you ever been too tired to walk up your stairs, eat, or even go to the toilet? Welcome to the life of individuals with cancer related fatigue. Fatigue is one of the most common and debilitating side effects of cancer treatments that presents itself before,...

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!  ...

Exercise and cancer: Move it or lose it!

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...

Relieving the pressure: How does exercise affect your blood pressure

Before we begin, I just wanted to pop these stats in front of you…. ·         34% of Australians (over 18) are have high blood pressure (BP) – that’s about 6 million people ·         4.1 million Australians have uncontrolled or untreated hypertension So, let’s answer...

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...

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...

Don’t run any more? Who do you think you are?

I’ve taken on a lot of clients who have been told by a Health or Medical Practitioner that they should not run ever again. Usually it is due to chronic knee pain with some evidence of structural change- like some cartilage degradation for example. This may not sound...

Hypermobility: Are you a one trick wonder?

The fringe festival is now in full swing, bringing the weird, wonderful and sometimes unimaginable acts. Perhaps you have seen the ‘Cowboy’ who now holds the world record for sword swallowing after having magnets implanted in his chest, behind the sternum… The human...

Valentines with a twist!

Happy Valentines day to all the Romeo & Juliet’s out there! Valentines day is the day to make up for the other 364 days of the year…oops, I mean everyday is a day to connect with your monogamous partner right? Well I don’t want to be all up in your face with...

Tasting Australia? Try tasting your lunch first!

I was reading about the upcoming Tasting Australia Festival in the Weekend Australia on Sunday- I must add whilst drinking a 2007 Adelaide Hills Riesling and eating an ashed chevre, also from the Hills. Sundays should be filled with such acts of hedonism. Amidst my...

High Intensity Interval Training: So why all the hype?

Workout trends come and go, and one of these that is getting a lot of attention is High Intensity Training (HIT). The attention, such as that in television shows like Catalyst and Michael Mosely’s ‘The truth about exercise’ (claiming that 6 minutes of exercise per...

Have you got a baseline??

I hope I haven't got any musos falsely excited based on the heading... but if I have, then you might as well just tune in (ah, see what I did there...ha...ha...ahhh....ok...I'll get on with it...). As we near the final development and exciting launch of our...

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...

The limited and precious commodity

Let’s start with a riddle………. This thing all things devours: Birds, beasts, trees, flowers; Gnaws iron, bites steel; Grinds hard stones to meal; Slays king, ruins town, And beats high mountain down. Anyone who considers themselves a lord of the rings nerd might...

Why do I feel so lazy? Our stone age drive for survival

If you’ve followed iNform’s blogs and social media we quite often comment that we are “Made to Move”. However, why do we (I’m talking society as a whole) find it so hard to get out and be active? Why is it so easy to be lazy? Well it seems our drive toward sedentarism...

Pain, immunity and your well being!

Picture these two scenarios: 1) You have just been rejected for a date with someone you’ve been very fond off….(sad face) Or, 2) Your last rep of your deadlift; has left you with a stabbing sensation in your lumbar spine… Why have I asked you to think about the two...

Movement Revolution: Exercise effect on knee pain

Now as a disclaimer of sorts, I am going to straight out say that the following is purely qualitative & subjective. One is sure The New England Journal of Medicine won't be calling to publish the following... We are born to move! Lets begin, Neuroscientists have...

Melatonin: The Victim Of Technology

Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone secreted from the Pineal gland in the brain. It's production is triggered by factors within and outside of the body, and it's primary function is to prepare the body for good quality sleep. Internally, production and...

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...
