Hitting the Trails

Redfern Evolution is stepping outside of the park and onto the trail, for this years Oxfam Trailwalk. This year is a massive year for both myself as a trainer and also for my clients. We are all jumping outside of our comfort zone and into the unknown to tackle the challenging 50km and 100km Oxfam Trailwalk.

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…

What makes our Evo’s special? Client stories part 2

I’m 65 now, I was just a baby at 59 for my first EVO session. I was walking through Waverton park one Spring morning and saw the flyers … and the rest, 1,100+ sessions later, is history. I think I’ve kind of rusted on to Evo…

You Move Me – Where are we now?

You Move is not so much an achievement as it is the greatest extension of who we can be as a community and how each of us in our own small way has the ability to change the world…

The Power is in the Vision

I often will tell my clients that the best training program you could ever have is the one that you do. We, as humans, are literally “meaning” making machines. What we do is create reasons and meaning behind our lives that simply justifies our lives exactly as they are. You see, our minds are 100% dedicated to proving ourselves right exactly as we are…

Hit the Trails & Run Free

It is easy to train indoors when the conditions outside are slightly uncomfortable. Yet, that is not why we do what we do. Evo training is about far more than just your session and getting a bit of movement into your week. We are aiming to tackle some of the big challenges in modern times, the loss of connection…

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?
