Post Natal-Safe Crossfit!

The Perfect Exercise for Mountain Biking

This exercise is performed on the powerplate. it is a half-crouch – like how you stand on the peddles going downhill. An empty dumbell bar goes into the strap handle of the powerplate, then you hold the strap tight. For advanced bikers, “ooch” the plate (forward, left, and right), mimicking how you would push and […]

Exercising in the Rain

It has been a quiet day in the gym today, with 5 out of 9 of my morning block of clients cancelling their session today. The reasons vary, but no-one can deny the fact that these reasons more often occur when it’s raining! One of the people that braved the wet! It is miserable outside, […]

Rip Trainer

It’s harder than it looks, with much of the intensity coming from trying to stay straight when you’are being pulled one way. The Rip Trainer’s main purpose is to unconsciously trigger your deep abdominal muscles into action. Muscles that you may or may […]

Exercise of the Week (not that we post one every week)

This exercise works every muscle in the body, but we don’t love it for that reason. It also moves almost every joint, and stretches the spine and groin in three magnificent directions! [sociallocker] The three-way lunge with arms… sounds kinky! The reality is anything but! It works almost every muscle in the body, including the […]
