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.

How to Achieve Optimal Gut Health

With optimal gut health, you can increase your friendly gut bacteria and your “bacteria balance” by changing what you eat. Bacteria live off of a variety of nourishing plant-based foods.

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!

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…

Are you getting enough Iron?

Feeling tired and weak, decreased work performance, difficulty maintaining body temperature, and decreased immune function are all signs of possible iron deficiency…

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.
