Why Is Mobility Movement So Necessary?

I want you to travel back in time with me, let’s say 15,000 years - no internet, no phones, a tweet was the noise a bird with wings made and we’d have to go hunting for our food. Movement was not only a part of every day life, it was essential to survival. Running, jumping, hunting, climbing tress, squatting instead of sitting on chairs, moving awkward loads continually, all day every day. Fast forward to modern day and the complete opposite is true. You could literally not leave bed all day, other than when you go to the toilet. You could work on your laptop from home, get Uber Eats to bring you your food, order whatever you need off of Amazon - the need for movement has completely gone. Or

Top 5 Hikes Around Melbourne

Public holidays are great for food, family, drinks...and going exploring! Use the extra day away from work to get away from the city and enjoy some time in nature. Here's my top 5 places to venture to! 1. Werribee Gorge Just an hour's drive out of Melbourne, Werribee Gorge is the perfect day trip location. A steep hike to begin with, but surrounded by great views and wildlife (I saw an echidna last time!) and ends on some fun rock climbing and a waterhole to have a quick dip! 2. 1,000 Steps Whether you drive there or jump on the train, the 1,000 Steps are really easy to get to from the city. A bit of a challenge, whether you manage to walk or run up the steps! 3. The Bay Starting from St Kil

Why Meal Plans Fail

‘Just tell me what to eat’‘I don’t want to think about it, I just need to know what, how much and when’These are very common statements from people during nutrition consultations, and it’s understandable. People have so much other stuff to think about, so many other stresses in life, that they don’t want their nutrition to be another one. The amount of times this works though? Zero. People rarely know the food they will have access to on a day to day basis, so how is someone else expected to plan out a weeks or even months worth of food for them without this knowledge? (Also, unless someone is a registered dietician, they aren’t allowed to legally do this for you anyway) So what’s more usefu

How Incidental Exercise Can Make You Healthier & Happier

I often get asked why I walk so much. If I need something from the shops - I'll take the scenic route along the bay there and back. If I'm meeting up with some friends for dinner - I'll skip the Uber and walk instead. When I need to get to the studio - yep I'm walking from Elwood to get here. Why? Because we are all sitting on our bums too much - myself included. And if I can't train that day, the very least I can do is get my legs moving, especially when I need to get somewhere anyway! We all know we should be doing 10,000 steps every day, which seems a lot for the average person that drives to work, sits at a desk all day and then drives home. But it's so easy to get your number up. Take p
