{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2018} This year is all about the WOW

Want to be fitter and stronger. Maybe even lose a few kilos? I will tell you something, once you find a community of like minded people you have already completed half the battle.  WOW Personal Training and Kobie Benn might just be there community you have been looking for. 

Located in Bathurst WOW Personal Training offers Women’s Only Group Fitness sessions. These include bodyweight sessions as well as bootcamp sessions that incorporate both bodyweight and weighted movements. 

I think the best part of WOW Personal Training is the reason it was started in the first place. Kobie says she has always battled weight issues her entire life and after suffering depression, anxiety and PTSD she found her passion for fitness and her entire life turned around. 

She says the main driving purpose behind WOW Personal Training was to create a safe and supportive place for women to exercise while they learnt how to make positive, sustainable lifestyle changes to help them achieve their goals. 

Kobie is a certified Personal Trainer and will help you get there, regardless of your goal. She isn’t like your typical trainer who stands at the front of the class and yells at you, instead she stands shoulder to shoulder and is in the trenches of the workout with you. The idea isn’t to be absolutely smashed during the workouts but to work to your best capacity, in your own way. 

I love that Kobie welcomes mums and bubs to the bodyweight classes so now you have no excuses!

There are NO egos and NO competition in the sessions with WOW Personal Training. Everyone works together to support each other. Everyone starts together and finishes together. It doesn’t matter if you do 5reps or 50reps, nobody gets left behind!

Kobie says she knows what its like to be overweight, she knows what it feels like to be sitting on the sidelines of life because your body and mind are making it impossible to do anything, she knows what it feels like to always put herself last, and what it feels like to want to make a change but not knowing even where to start.

That’s the crux of it you know, the fact that Kobie has been there, she knows what you are feeling like but at the same time also knows what it’s like to celebrate the victories!! She wants you to look in the mirror and be proud of who you are. 

So, now I have smashed your excuses get in contact with Kobie today!

{The Nest Health} Exercising your way into the new year

Today our resident health expert Larissa Beer from Larissa Beer Personal Training gives us the information we need to rediscover our motivation after Christmas.

line4

Christmas is my absolute favourite time of year, what is there not to love? Carols, lights, Christmas trees. But it’s a tricky time of year when it comes to sticking to your exercise and eating plans.riss2

There are numerous Christmas parties and different types of foods that you normally wouldn’t eat, our stomachs are in a perpetual state of full. Whether it’s the goodies at the latest party or the first batches of fudge or gingerbread cookies, you’re probably filling up more than you normally do.

While there is nothing wrong with a little indulgence this time of year (as long as you try not to overeat!). It can, however be extremely hard to get going for your daily jog or class with a belly full of Christmas spirit.

My advice to you is to try to resist the urge to get lazy! It is always important to get exercise in, but it is especially important during a season where you will be eating more (or a lot more!) than usual.

You are probably thinking – ‘I’m already off the bandwagon I might as well wait until January to start back up with my fitness regime’. Nope!! The time to get back at it is now! The longer you are sedentary, the harder it is to get your body moving again. Don’t wait until January 1st to start working out again. Chances are you’ll be a little hungover that day anyway!

Get back to your gym/pool/classes/runs/personal training sessions now! Exercise tonight! Even if it’s a short walk and a set of lunges and situps. Do something to get your body and mind back in the game as soon as possible.

To get back into a fitness routine after a short break you should re-assess your goals and make a new fitness plan. It can be hard to get back into exercise (or anything for that matter) without a plan, so I recommend coming up with a short term goal that is achievable and specific.

For example: I will work out Monday, Wednesday and Friday this week after work. Monday I will go for a jog, Wednesday I will do a pump class and Friday I will go to RPM. Having a plan makes your decision to work out easier and should help motivate you to get back into the swing of things.

Happy exercising Nesters!

Summer lovin’ workouts

The weather is heating up but it is no excuse to stop exercising – you just need to be careful!

Today our resident health expert, the wonderful Riss from Larissa Beer Personal Training helps us understand that benefits (and concerns) of working out in summer!

Summer is the perfect time of the year to go outside and have fun.

It is personally my favourite time of the year where I feel more motivated to get outside in the sunshine and do more outdoor activities and there are plenty of them such as swimming, running and cycling.

You have to remember thought that the summer heat can be a problem if you’re not careful. Here are a few of our tips for exercising safely in the summer heat.

The time of day is important. Unless you are training for an event that takes place in the daytime heat, avoid exercising from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. It’s the hottest part of day. Generally, the early morning is the best time to workout, especially if it’s going to be scorcher that day.

Sunscreen is a must. It’s important to protect your skin. Any sun damage you do now to your skin with last a lifetime. Remember even on cloudy days to protect yourself!

Stay in the shade Find a nice place out of direct sunlight to take a little pressure off your body.

Check the weather forecast before you start your workout. If its going to be too hot maybe considering exercising indoors.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids (preferably water) before, during and after physical activity. Avoid alcoholic and caffeinated beverages.

Most importantly, listen to your body. Stop immediately if you’re feeling dizzy, faint or nauseous.

Have fun healthy nesters!

Pump it, pump it real good – to music while you exercise

In case you are still hiding under your winter-moss-rock here’s some exciting news – Summer is finally on its way! Summer means some great things like ice cream, swimming and dresses but also means you can’t hide behind oversized jumpers any longer!

Here our resident health commandoette, Larissa Beer from Larissa Beer Personal Training explains why working out with music can give your motivation a little extra kick.

There are three main benefits to incorporating music into any workout:

  1. Music helps you focus, it assists in shutting out any external noises which will allow you to fully concentrate on the task at hand. It is also brilliant for maintaining a positive mindset throughout your workout.
  2. Music can be used to enhance performance, music with an up-tempo beat can keep you powering on for longer and keep you in a more energised state, particularly as you are coming towards the end of your workout. Try and pick the right tempo music for your workout. Slow gentle tunes for yoga and relaxation exercises fast upbeat tracks for running or cycling.
  3. Music for motivation, when we listen to our favourite songs during a fitness routine, we feel more inclined to intensify the workout. This is because the music makes us feel good and you are likely to want to keep going for just a little bit longer.

Larissa’s Top 10 Workout Tracks:

  1. Can’t stop- Red Hot Chilli Peppers
  2. We found love- Rihanna
  3. I love it- Icona Pop
  4. Live it up- JLo feat Pitbull
  5. Set it off- Timomatic
  6. Raise your glass- Pink
  7. Some nights-Fun.
  8. Till the world ends-Britney Spears
  9. Its my life-Bon Jovi
  10. Love on top- Beyoncé

Happy exercising Nesters!
