The free version has downloads disabled along with the 8 other teaching courses I’ve bundled to the full membership but this version still has heaps of info 😀

Have a Healthy and Stronger 2019

IMG_6958Christmas is getting so close and I plan to let my hair down, eat what I want and enjoy myself with family. I hope you will too.

I am also looking forward to January though, when it’ll be time to put focus back on health and fitness Fitstrong Brisbane.

On Monday 7th I’ll be kicking off our January Challenge with an emphasis on creating better nutritional habits and following a simple but effective training program.

Random workouts from Youtube or a magazine are fine if you just want to build up a sweat, but they rarely result in achieving goals. I can proudly say that we follow training plans all year round at FitStrong. These are laid out to address and prioritise specific goals and not just to get tired, sore and sweaty. I could poke you with a stick if that’s the goal!

Our systematic approach is applied to both in-person training at the gym and for online training members.

Okay, back to you now. Ask yourself.

  • Are you committed to improving your fitness and health in 2019?
  • Can you set aside 15, 30 to 45 minutes for yourself daily or 2 to 3 times a week?
  • Have you got a health or fitness goal?
  • Do you want the assistance of a very experienced coach?

If you can answer yes to these, please do consider joining us at FitStrong either as an online member or at our Albany Creek gym. Our training options can meet any budget from $1 a day to more higher ticket detailed packages.

If you are ready to take 2019 by the horns and get healthier and stronger, get in touch below and I’ll get back to you with start-up options that won’t break the bank!

Strong is ability

Strong isn’t a size, it’s ability. 

All too often you’ll hear rebuttals to strength training from prospective clients or other adult pops with quotes like, “I don’t want to get all muscly” or, “I’m not a strength athlete, I just want to be fitter”!

I love both of these reasonings for not making strength training part of ones life, not because I agree, quite the contrary; but because I love to explain the why. The ‘why’ we do need strength training in our lives.

Firstly, the whole growing big muscles by partaking in strength training twice or maybe three times a week  for the average adult just isn’t going to result in a Popeye type explosion of all over muscle growth.

Popeye1

Muscle growth occurs with repeated high stress training for multiple sets, repeating a strength exercise to the point of muscular fatigue or momentary failure.

Strength training practice requires the exposure of high tension to muscles with maximum control but not to momentary muscular failure. 

Apart from this important factor that differentiates muscle growth training to muscle strength training; youth, great nutrition, great sleep, minimum stress, natural hormones in abundance are all required to accompany the high stress training protocols. For most of us, we’re not going to train moderately and burst into a behemoth overnight, or even after a years solid training. In reality to boot, even if you were to gain 10kg of muscle, you wouldn’t really notice it in the mirror as huge growth. You’d see a bit of muscle shape and improved posture in most cases.

In any case, don’t worry about strength training adding vast lumps of meat to your frame, it just isn’t that easy. Even for the average dedicated gym bro, adding muscle following the precise muscle gain protocols is a very challenging job.

Now then, as for the other perception that strength is for athletes, well it just isn’t. I wish I could just leave this as it is but my point warrants further explanation.

Let’s start by looking at those who believe that practicing some form of strength training is not for them or wasn’t for them; let’s look at the elderly. Frail, weak, dependant on a stick, a frame, other people or aids to carry out the most basic of fundamental human tasks, it should be obvious that people in this boat could have benefitted greatly from even the simplest weekly strength training practice.

Many hospital ‘incarcerations’ for the elderly patient occur as an outcome of a fall, when weak and brittle bones succumbed to the impact or dislocations or muscle tears resulted. We all run the risk of tripping and falling in life but having the resilience to cope is part choice and part luck.

The choice component comes from choosing to be proactive throughout our lives in regards to staying active, mobile and strong. Isn’t this a definition of ‘fitness’, being fit for our lives and all that it throws our way?

Being stronger not only safe-guards us and makes us more resilient, it makes us more able and capable.

Ask yourself this question:

On your death bed in many, many years, would you regret being strong and able or would you regret being weak and prone to pain and injury? 

Heading into the new year soon, maybe you’re thinking of taking up ‘getting strong and more mobile’. To draw this post to an end, I’d like to offer you a FREE 5 day course for home use, which will take you through some key movements to start first off addressing moving better.

FREE Week of Training

To promote, celebrate and demonstrate a little bit of the new FitStrong Online Membership programming concept, I’ve got a FREE week of training up for grabs.

The main goal of the membership is to offer a solution to people who are stuck for time and need something to follow to stay on top of their health and fitness.

While 10, 20 or 30 minutes of exercise isn’t going to set you up to break any world records, it is going to give you something structured to follow. Compare that with doing nothing and feeling crappy, stiff and weak!

The FREE week of training focuses on 3 essential movements that cover a lot of ground.

Check it out below.

Just click the link ===> Free Weeks Training #thrivein10

The video above talks you through the program and demonstrates the key moves.

The FitStrong Online Membership is HERE!

fitstrong membership subscriptionAnd it’s finally here.

The FitStrong Online Membership is just about ready to launch into the world.

But, what is it all about?

The membership is for anyone who:

  • Wants to get less stiff and achy
  • Wants to get stronger for life
  • Is stuck for time
  • Cant always get to a gym
  • Likes to exercise at home
  • Wants to be told what to do, when to do it and how hard
  • Enjoys bodyweight and Kettlebell training

Do you want a simple way to get some ‘you-time’, to get taught how to exercise, with programs you can do anywhere from as little as 10 minutes a day with maybe a couple of kettlebells and a bit of space to move around.

Not everyone who wants to make exercise a frequent part of their life gets the option to visit a personal trainer, or exercise classes at their local gym.

Time restrictions, not knowing what to do in the gym, financial budget and wanting to spend time with family before and after work all make up some of the reasons why going to a gym is not practical for a lot of people. If you do get to the gym though, perhaps deciding what to do is also a drain – one more thing to add to the to-do list!

I’ve been a personal trainer since 1997 and what I’ve experienced as any trainer would tell you, is that session cancellations are all too frequent. Why? Life happens and the client can’t make the appointment or the class.

I love and thrive working face-to-face with people but I also totally respect and understand that life does happen. Kids do get sick, we often have to hang around waiting for the plumber to come fix the drain or the mobile mechanic to come fix the car or you get stuck at work…

So, let’s do away with appointments or having to figure out what to do at the gym if you make it there. Let’s keep your personal trainer and exercise program in your pocket on your smart phone, your computer or even on your smart TV!

The FitStrong Online Membership could be a powerful asset in your life.

The video below shows a virtual tour of the site right now. There are a few finishing touches to make, but for all intent and purposes, it’s ready to rock ‘n roll.

No sales pitch, just a tour.
