Sweaters, Cinnamon, and Weekly Workouts: Tips and Tricks to Staying Healthy During the Colder Months

Brr!!! It’s officially winter temperatures here in Perth. As we end May and move in June, I find that winter can be the toughest time of year to keep on a regular training schedule and eat healthy. Due to the colder temperatures and shorter daylight hours, my fitness levels can change easily week to week and along with it my focus on my nutrition. But this year, I am more determined than ever to stay on top of both my fitness and nutrition throughout winter and come out healthier than ever before.

Tips To Being Healthy At A Desk Job

I love being a Personal Trainer. It’s a career path I’ve wanted since I was 12. Unfortunately, it isn’t all sunshine and roses and I’ve had to make ends meet by taking other jobs. I had hoped never to hold a desk job, but I do hold one now. Desk jobs can be a bit of a pit fall when it comes to staying healthy, but I do think it is possible to stay on the up and up and survive being stuck at a desk all day.

Try It: EMS Workout

You may have seen the ads on Facebook or segments on the news: a 20 minute workout that is equivalent to 4 hours in the gym, all while being low impact. Is this too good to be true? Maybe, or maybe not. Enter EMS Revolution , a gym using an Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS) powered training system to promise such a workout. Not only that does the promise of a short but intense workout intrigue me, but when their website also claims that “you can work up to 350 individual muscles at the same time in just one session.” I knew I had to check it out for myself. So I was super excited when Andy (owner of EMS Revolution here in Perth) offered me the opportunity to do just that! So on a beautiful Thursday morning, I drove up to EMS Revolutions studio in Malaga and threw myself into the unknown of EMS workouts.  Continue reading “Try It: EMS Workout”

How To Build An At Home Gym On A Budget

If you gave me unlimited money, I am pretty sure I would have a membership to almost every gym and studio within 20km of my house. I love having access to a plethora of equipment and workout styles, as it allows me to find a workout that suites my daily mood and schedule. Unfortunately, I have yet to win the lottery, so my small budget does limit where I can workout. Though my job as a Personal Trainer does give me access to a substantial amount of equipment, I still end up working out quite a bit at home due to my schedule. Which leads me to today’s topic: how to build an at home gym on a budget! Continue reading “How To Build An At Home Gym On A Budget”
