On-the-Run Winter Breakfasts

The mornings are getting a lot colder as winter approaches! Getting out of bed starts getting harder and the snooze button on the alarm clock is getting more of a workout than usual. Looking forward to a healthy, warm and fuzzy breakfast may just be the motivation to bounce out of bed!

Client Stories – Redfern

I started my EVO journey in January 2015 at Redfern Oval under the watchful gaze of Adam, along with a host of characters (human and animal) who wander/fly in and out of the park during our sessions.  Where else can you have a dog jump onto you whilst concentrating on a plank, or a kitten taking residence under your butt during a bridge hold?!

Action, Action, ACTION!

I am all about ACTION at the moment. Not sitting around waiting, not sitting around thinking about the possibilities of what I could do, or what would happen if I did that… I am saying YES more and just getting on with things, not procrastinating or saying I will do it later or tomorrow or next week, but giving it a go now and seeing what happens next…

Trainer Stories – 10 Years of Evo Coogee

This month is pretty special for us down at Coogee Beach as we celebrate our 10 year training anniversary!! I started Evolution Coogee back in April 2008 when I was working at a boutique health club in the City after meeting Founder of Evo, Mike Britton on a Pre and Post Pregnancy course…

Tips For Adjusting To Daylight Savings

Everyone gets excited when we spring forward into Daylight Savings time, it marks the end of winter, and lighter evenings with more sunshine to bask in. But, there are downsides when it comes to staying on track with your training through this transition period, especially if you like to work out in the mornings. Losing an hour of sleep may not seem like much but your body only needs small changes to potentially send it into chaos…

What is the “Core” anyway?

One of the most common sayings across all areas of the fitness industry is when a yoga teacher, lifting coach, Pilates teacher, HIIT trainer, Les Mills Instructor, Dance teacher, boxing coach etc will say; “Turn on your Core muscles”. But what is the ‘Core’ anyway and why do so many people talk about this magical Core?

Building Community

Evolution was founded on the whole idea of communities of people training together in their local beach or park and supported by a lead trainer who was as much community connector as they were fitness trainer…

What makes an Evo trainer different? Trainer Stories Part 1

I am 26 years old, Adelaide born and raised and I drinks green smoothies for breakfast. So far so good? Although only 3 years young as a community leader and trainer for Evolution my relationship with Evo delves much deeper. I first found Evo (or maybe Evo found me) when I had just moved to Sydney after living in Perth for 3 years. Upon arrival I only knew the friendly face of my sister and my two new housemates…

Controlled focus is like a laser beam

Two weeks ago I finished the blog by paraphrasing George Zaluki, saying, to be consistent with who you are, the machinery of how you are made, is compelling and we need to be compelled to reach out and achieve. That there is clearly something attractive and inspiring about people who are setting out to achieve and the focusing of your energy to achieve is harnessed by goal setting…

Goals of a Champion Winter Warrior

In the process of creating any champion of Winter Warrior, it is impossible to not bring up the idea of Goals. When I talk about Goals, I think it is incredibly important to connect them with your mind and emotions as well. Let me tell you straight, when I was going through school and used to hear about goals when I never liked them…

Resiliance

“Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult-once we truly understand and accept it-then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that…
