We have been FLAT OUT these past couple of weeks, and we are only half way! The IntoYou girls are filling their brains and schedules in an effort to continue providing you with the greatest sessions possible.
We started last week with Antony Lo’s Bulletproof Your Body course. Antony is a physio from Oatley, who believes that we “weaken” women with our approach to Post Natal exercise. He does not believe in cutting exercises out, instead he taught us how to change things to make every exercise possible, avoiding injury, and increase the body’s ability to do more. He also showed us strategies to make ourselves more powerful within seconds, while protecting our pelvic floor.
The very next day, on Sunday, Jade and the 2016 Bootcamp group participated in our 3rd Tough Mudder Event. It was muddy and fun as always! You can read the debrief on that here.
Then on Thursday Clare headed to Melbourne to Launch Burrell Education AUS Modern Pregnancy and Modern Post Natal Exercise courses. Saturday was disastrous from a presenter’s perspective; the Virgin Active staff professed to know nothing of the course, and had nowhere to put 13 of us! We ended up in the staff meeting room where the projector promptly blew a lamp. The projector that VA provided worked for 2 slides then stopped communicating with the computer, and finally, an extra 2 people signed up in the last hours of registration, which meant we had to photocopy a booklet for them then and there!! All the participants had manuals, which meant that we simply went through the books instead of a presentation.
On Sunday we had a new computer and projector, but we were in a room with lamps so bright no one could read the presentation anyway! I had a good hour before i had to jet off to the airport, so caught up with another Sydney trainer, Jen Dugard from Body Beyond Baby.
Also on Saturday, Jade celebrated her hens. It looked like a blast and we wish her all the best for her upcoming wedding! Any pictures that were taken there have been destroyed… lol
On Wednesday we are all heading up to Avalon for our Trainer Training session. Anyone is welcome to join us! We will be at Crossfit Avalon Beach at 12.30pm (come a little early to complete a healthscreen). Brent, the owner of the box, was in our Bulletproof Your Body Course, and is a fun and intelligent guy that we are looking forward to learning from.
On Thursday, Clare will head off to Gisborne NZ, to launch Burrell Education NZ courses Power Plate for the Post Natal client and Modern Pregnancy Exercise. This trip will see Clare and Olivia (owner of Advance Body) reunited for the first time since they worked together for Power Plate in 2011!
On Saturday we have a stall at Collaroy Plateau Primary School’s Carnival! The Carnival is such a fun event to bring your family to! There are rides, face painting, market stalls, fete tables, and more! Tag any picture you take at the event with #intoyousfs or @intoyousfs to go in the draw to win 10 IntoMum sessions (value $275). We will also have seven women and Food to Nourish products for sale, and will be running mini power plate sessions. Come past and say hello, and let us give your calves a massage!!
Finally, this Friday the 4th November is your last chance to register for our Christmas party! If you want to come dragon boating and have a wine with us afterwards, you can register here!
