20 Minute Interval Training

meditation helps depression

This is a great read on how meditation helps depression. It helped me get through a massive heartbreak which saw me drop into a deep level of depression and darkness. I cannot emphasize how different I feel and how different I am because of simply sitting and quietening my inner chatterbox for 20 mins everyday.

quit sugar

These are very wise words on sugar from Josie Andrici (PT and Innervate Trainer). Josie is a fully qualified naturopath as well as being a kick ass Personal Trainer. You have not “quit sugar” by replacing with it other alternatives including: Agave syrup – sweeter than sugar and high fructose – yup that sounds great,

Here’s a picture of this mornings Coogee group session. I am showing the guys how to plank correctly. Lenka’s chin should be tucked just a little bit more in this picture. When doing a plank or a push up imagine you have a rod on your back like this. There should be three points of

Shut up your inner saboteur AKA your ‘SNEAKY MO FO’ and move your ass regularly!

Don’t let angry, aggressive and negative hounds upset your mood. I walk my black Lab Leroy Brown every morning and afternoon. On these walks if Leroy sees a dog that he doesn’t ‘like’ he will sense the energy from over 5m away. He will pull his lead and move out of the dog’s path in

How I got the monkey off my back re dealing with bulimia. I received this message last week: Hey Lisa, Just read some of your story on your meet the trainers page, saw you struggled with an eating disorder till into your 30’s. Thanks for being honest, I have had a massive struggle with bulimia

Tripping up arse over tit at the supermarket. Not literally guys…..although there was the time I slipped and fell over some spilt yogurt in the fridge aisle while checking out the hot, straight chick picking out some hummus with her boyfriend (but we can save that for another jibber jabber I think). No, I am

Let positivity punctuate your dreams Dr. Wayne W. Dyer: ‘As you lie in bed preparing for your nightly slumber, remember that the last thought you have in your mind can last up to four hours in your subconscious mind.’ I read, watched and listened to Wayne Dyer’s stuff a lot a few years ago when

My staff train twice a week with Innervate: once before work and once after. They absolutely love it, they tell all their friends and more importantly all of our clients how amazing we are for putting it on for them. It is well worth the small (tax deductable) spend”

I’ve had such an amazing time training, my body feels completely transformed, I think the last time I was this toned I was like 22! I’ve dropped nearly 5.5kgs and my goal weight is very much in my grasp, my waist has gone from 35” to 29” I am over the moon with these results and we actually have a laugh in-between the intense parts….. which makes it all the more bearable.

It has been great seeing staff reaching their personal goals, becoming fitter and healthier, reducing their stress and having fun in a team environment. I view the training as an investment in the health & happiness of my staff. They definitely appreciate it – I often get thanked or told how much fun they are having. I consider the training part of the formula for happy & engaged staff.
