If you’ve been following my travels on Facebook or Twitter recently, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been loving Fitness First’s new look The Zone gym on King Street in the Sydney CBD. The high intensity 30 minute (or 15 minute for the seriously time-poor) classes are an excellent way to escape the computer and burn some serious calories, fast.
3pm – AKA The Danger Zone. The time of day most likely to have us reaching for chocolate or biscuits or (oh dear) biscuits coated in chocolate. Of course the issue is that by the time we hit The Danger Zone it’s not just hunger that we’re contending with. It’s also boredom and dipping sugar levels. It’s an energy slump. It’s the fact that we just like eating darn it! [Read more...]
Most of the time, I really enjoy working out by myself. I don’t tend to have many issues with motivation – I’m pretty happy to just get in and get my workout done. I know that’s not necessarily the case for everyone though – overwhelmingly, my clients tell me that they see me because they never really push themselves when training alone.
Whoever said that men sweat and women glow has clearly never laid eyes on me at the end of an interval session. Yep, if I’ve got any hope of walking out of the gym looking like a halfway presentable member of the fairer sex, I’ve got to ensure my gym bag is packed full of the right products. And while trial and error may have gotten me to this point, it doesn’t have to be that way for you. Let me present to you my… [Read more...]
If you’ve been following Lazy Girl Fitness for a while, you’ll know that my mum is pretty awesome when it comes to fitness and life in general. So when she called me the other week and asked if I’d put together a sprint training session for her and the lovely ladies (and occasional ring-in male) she trains with, I was more than happy to oblige – the only condition was that she had to provide feedback and take some piccies for me. Easy! [Read more...]
Well I don’t know about you, but I am exhausted – I need a weekend to recover from my weekend. There was a bit of everything here in LGF Land; friends, chores, epic sandhills with the crazy guys from East Side Crew, lots and lots of walking, Lou-cuddles and – allegedly – a little too much wine.
Listen, I’m not too big to admit that I wouldn’t mind a little Valentine’s Day excitement in my life. A bouquet of flowers that’s just big enough to make me blush, dinner at my favourite restaurant (or better yet, a lovingly prepared home-cooked meal), a little Paradise by the Dashboard Light blaring through the speakers…
Given that it’s Valentine’s Week (is that even a thing?) I thought it was as good a time as any to announce that I have found true love. Let me reassure you though; the object of my affections is not a man, nay, it’s not even human. In fact, the very thing that has my heart all aflutter doesn’t even have a heart of its own.
It’s pretty widely acknowledged as fact that for optimum results, you should always ALWAYS go into your workout session with a plan. But what about when you just don’t wanna do legs? You simply cannot do another push up. You will DIE if someone makes you do another kettlebell swing. You can’t! You won’t!
Happy Tuesday Team!
It’s been a hectic week here in LGF land, as Lou and I adjust to our new lives as Bondi hipsters. Between visiting the Bondi Farmer’s Markets, late afternoon swims at the beach, breakfasting in North Bondi, finding new places to work out and general exploration of our new environment, we’ve been busy little bees. Yep, while it’s been quite an adjustment for the both of us, we’re trying to make the most of this little piece of heaven you might know as the Eastern Surburbs!
