Our instructors are so busy it is often difficult for them to find suitable schedules for new clients. 

Throughout the month of July and August, a few of our regular clients will take a break and go home for a few weeks leaving a handful of precious slots available for 6 to 8 weeks.  if you are keen to boost your fitness schedule over the summer, please let us know and we will happily check for suitable times for you.

Dear Urban Enthusiast,

baby with trainersHaving just realised we are already hitting the Mid Year point,  we reflect on the last 5 months of 2011. We've welcomed a score of new bubs and new mums,   have conducted over 400 classes, and provided in excess 1400 personal training sessions !  What a year already ! And whilst the summer is always a bit 'touch and go', we know that comes September, we will welcome back all the summer escapees into the world of fitness....

Long and disjointed hours, lots of driving around,  tricky logistics and heaps of preparation work make the job tough and demanding.  But it is rewarding to see the changes in our clients every day.  Weight loss, better posture, ability to conceive,  enhance flexibility, or just simply happier moods !  We love it.  So to all of you who share with us your successes,  thanks for making us part of the changes in your life.

Juicing for health !

Having just come back from a fasting Detox where fresh juices (2 per day) were the only pleasurable things coming through my palate for 7 days, I have become a bit of a real afficionado of fresh fruits and vegetable juices.  Whilst fresh juices don't always have the same benefits as having a whole fruit, in that they miss out on the healthy fibers often present in the whole fruits, they are particularly good for many reasons:

1. There is an unlimited number of variations from fruits only, to veg only, to a mix of 2, 3, 4 or more ingredients... the only thing that matters is your taste.

2. Juicing is kind on your stomach, giving you an opportunity to have your 5 a day without putting too much strain on your digestive system.

3. It is now well known that a diet high in fruits and vegs will prevent or cure a large array of ailments.

4. Fresh juices, because they are made of raw fruits and veggies, are full of rich enzimes.  Enzymes are critical for most of the metabolic activities taking place in your body, every second of every day.

So get the juicer out of the cupboard, get the kids to help out and try your hand at these amazings concoctions :

carrot - orange - pineapple
Apple - ginger - orange
cucumber - pineapple - celery
and our all time favorite :
mango - pineapple - capscicum - carrot 

Here's to a healthier and fitter you !
