Myself and a few hardy clients made it up Mount Cootha on the weekend. It was a heck of a climb. To prove how hard it was check this short video of a graph of my heart (thanks to My Zone) wanting to jump out of my chest! Congratulations to Michelle Leversedge, Guy and Helen Maxwell and Clint Holmes. Awesome effort guys! That was no walk in the park.

A few of you will know that I talk about ‘useful’ fitness and that’s what going in these type of events are all about for me. There’s no point in working your backside off in a gym if you never doing anything useful with your nicely developing fitness. Now riding up a mountain mightn’t be it for you but there are countless ‘useful’ things you can do with an active body and I want to hear about it!

Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
