Glory days….. but what about now?

I won an Australian junior tennis title event. I did a biathlon and swam across Sydney Harbour I got my bronze medallion I was captain of my football team I represented NSW in tennis I ran the city to surf in 54 mins….. Big deal! All these things have one thing in common. They are in firmly in the past. I don’t know how many times I have heard blokes (in particular) talk about stuff they once did. Who cares? What matters is what is happening now! This blog is aimed at 40+ something blokes. It is an age group and gender and I can relate to. Just lately we have had some guys of this vintage do really well. The following guys have lost around 10cm off the waist this year, Andrew, Gareth, Gary, Rogerio, Jorge. Others have lost a little less but are DOING the job right now. This is what counts. Forget about how much of a legend you might have been in the past. That ship has sailed my friend. Now is your reality. Later this year I will be assembling a group of motivated blokes who want to make 2012 the year that they stop the rot and reclaim the glory days. This will be a 12 month program and only for guys who are just super FED UP with being FAT, FORTY-ISH and FREAKIN’ living in the past.  I will be accepting 10 blokes only and only those who I think have the stomach for this. No pun intended. But yep you will be […]

The health benefits of coconut oil

I was watching Jamie Oliver yesterday. Wow, he uses a lot of olive oil. There has been lots of talk about transfats and how the destabilisation of oil under high heat can produce it even from the health giving olive oil. Well here is an alternative. Check out some of the health benefits from coconut oil. This information comes from Dr Mercola, a reliable source in my opinion. Health Benefits of coconut oil As unbelievable as it sounds, the oil in coconuts has been found to aid the body in destroying dozens of harmful viruses including hepatitis C, herpes, and HIV. Coconut oil has been called the healthiest dietary oil on earth. If you’re not using coconut oil for your daily cooking and amazing health products. • It protects the body from viral, bacterial or protozoal infections that cause ulcers, throat infections, urinary tract infections, gum disease and cavities, pneumonia, and other diseases.

Do you ‘LIKE us?

I tried this once before but have a better link now, so it should be easier to make a connection happen. You should go straight to a page instead of just the log in to facebook. LIKE US! If you are on facebook this is a great way to stay connected with what is happening at Best Practice. We will ‘like’ you back if you have a business….I promise. If you are member of best practice already you can earn points when you post about us or tweet. Some of you may have got an email from Perkville recently. That was related to us. It will be like a fly buys system. Earn enough points doing what comes naturally, like attending appointments and classes, posting about how much fun you had at best practice on facebook, refer a friend etc. and get points which leads to getting stuff! Don’t worry all will become clear soon enough. But in the interim, just like us will ya? I LIKE BEST PRACTICE ON FACEBOOK!

Bridge to Brisbane, 2011

September 11 is the day. We would like to see you in this one. I am organising a taxi from the pool for those who would like to come with us for the 10 k (or 5k) run or walk. You know we like to see you test yourself a little and this is a great opportunity to log some kind of performance from which to judge future efforts. It is nice to strive for something each year and try to better yourself in some way. I am really keen to get a best practice ‘useful’ fitness photo like this one below. If you don’t already have one of our unbelievably beautiful singlets we would like you to earn one by being involved. For those interested, we are going to have a little barbecue back at the pool afterwards and a cool off in the pool. Let me know you are up for it by filling in this form below

Gym update

Sweat, a best practice gym is coming together. See the attached document for the proposed layout (ish)! REVISED FLOOR PLAN (1 Page) Just remember 150 memberships only. I am confident we will sell these fast. This is really for 3 types of people. Existing clients like you who want to slot in some extra training on your own to accelerate progress Clients who have become truly independent in this ‘fitness is a habit’ thing, i.e. don’t need us, if that is actually possible?? 🙂 Business people and residents who live close by and really like the idea of swimming and gyming in the same place Anticipated opening is still October. Let me know if you want me to put your name down as ‘interested’ below. Or reserve your spot now by calling me at the studio. There is a special corporate offering too if you work for a company in the local area. Ask me about that if that is relevant to you.
