Videogames have often get a bad rap. Often it is completely warranted.
Toxic gamers and their horrifyingly bad attitudes when playing online.
Big greedy companies like Electronic Arts (also known as EA, or THE worst gaming company ever) being greedy and awful and pushing lootboxes/microtransactions instead of pushing to make a good game.
But every now and then, a game company releases a game that is innovative, fun and has some pretty cool ideas in it. Monster Hunter World is my unlikely new favourite game but not for the reasons you think!
Food, Glorious Food

After an unusually warm winter (but no climate change though.. right.. right?), Summer has decided to let us know that it is chomping at the bit to unleash it’s heat themed fury upon us! The beach is sounding like THE place to hang out at in the coming months so what better way to prepare for this than to get out of that hibernation funk and get lean and healthy!

By now many of you have seen in the news in the last few days the story regarding the personal trainer who apparently trained a first time client into the hospital. The news story obviously piqued my interest what with the talk of kidney damage so of course I have something to say on the matter!
Personal Training Client
6 December, 2016Something I have dealt with over the years is the situation where someone might have an ache or pain.. or possibly even an injury.
“Oh no! You’re injured – you can’t train!”If you sprain your ankle and you go and get it seen to, that’s fine – you need to let that injury settle and heal. The problem is that often you will be given the generic response that you won’t be able to train for X amount of weeks. This will likely set you back weeks of progress but more troubling is that this advice is such a blanket statement. If you injure your ankle and yet you can still go to work? You can still train. It certainly means that your ankle may be out of action but the rest of your body is not. I didn’t train today. Why? Not because I was too tired or not motivated enough. Quite the opposite actually. As a general rule, you shouldn’t do heavy lifting after a blood test. As it happened I had my blood test and I also had the Contrast Dye Ct Scan for my ongoing cancer monitoring so as it eventuated both arms were out of action for the day. I make this process look good. So while I have not been able to stick to my usual Tuesday training shenanigans, I asked myself this –
“What CAN I do?”I determined that a really decent hip mobility stretching session was perfect. Chest and Shoulder day can wait till tomorrow. Not only that, I was able to do some meal prep also. Delicious My lack of training was not a waste of a day. If anything, I was able to complete two health and fitness related tasks in the time I had allocated. Another great example is Don. Don has shown such AMAZING determination during his 12 week challenge. His eating habits have done a 180 and given the body fat he has lost – you can certainly see why. One thing that I have been so proud of Don for is that he has not let anything get in his way. Recently during one of his Ice Hockey nights, he had a tumble and landed awkwardly on his shoulder. It has been sore for a while now and from what we have deduced, he niggled one of the Bursas in his shoulder. Changing your body and your health for the better isn’t all hinged on your training. It is a symphony of opportunities to make it all happen. Of course, be sensible about it.
If you are sick as a dog and vomiting.. what you CAN do is listen to your body, eat well and REST.
If you have a slight niggle in your knee – talk to us and we can definitely work around it PLUS we will likely help you resolve the problem
If you have rolled your ankle and it feels a bit dodgy… still talk with us and we can offer a work around to ensure it recovers but your training progress does not suffer.
I say this not to be mean but to put things into perspective. Your sore toe may indeed be sore.. but this guy managed to train without a freakin leg.Perspective is often the best motivator.
