My Greatest Struggle…
MY GREATEST STRUGGLE AS A COACH
is trying to implement the idea of DESIRE into my clients minds... If one does not have this DESIRE to change what possibility of success can you expect?
Everyone says they want to lose weight, they want to build muscle, they want to become a better vision of themselves... But do they REALLY want it? Or kind of want it? Because the difference between failure and success is DESIRE to change! It doesn't matter if you hire the best coa .....

Are You ready for the reVolution?
I got inspired by all the feedback I got from an email I sent out a few days ago about how so many people fail at their New Year weight loss resolution and end up right back where they were when they started, or worse.
And in that same email I went on to explain the four factors why most people fail at their new year weight loss resolution. > Your goals are probably un-realistic and so you're already setting yourself up for failure. > You're unprepared. Sure y .....

BLAIR’S GAMES DAY
Why we are fundraising/hosting a Games Day
Blair Kurtz, the 53-year-old founder and former owner of Quakers Hill Veterinary Hospital has been part of Hi Reps Fitness since 2014, having played first-grade football with Parramatta as a youth, and completing a half marathon last year, was diagnosed in late October 2015 with MND. The diagnosis came as a shock for someone who was so active. Sadly the disease has progressed rapidly, causing Blair to retire from work in F .....
5 Super Fast Dinner Recipes
Most of our Hi Reps members want to eat healthy – they really do – but a single detrimental factor gets in their way…they simply don’t have the time.
I get it, we all lead busy lives that leave very little extra time for healthy meal prep, but the alternative of fast food meals, frozen dinners and restaurant fare is making us lose in the battle of the bulge.
All too often I see members exercise hard everyday, and then flush their results away with irrespo .....
A new prescription for you…
Dr. Joseph Mercola, a well-known health advocate, has an interesting take on exercise.
He believes that it should be prescribed, like any other medication, in daily doses.
“The simple act of writing out a prescription for exercise is an excellent approach to being proactive regarding your health. It's also far more logical, inexpensive and radically reduces your risk of most every chronic disease known to man. A daily exercise routine is one of the main factor .....

TRAINING IN THE COLD SUCKS – TIPS TO SURVIVE!
TRAINING IN THE COLD SUCKS - HERE'S HOW TO MAKE IT SUCK LESS. It's about this time of year when our training starts to fall off the radar - the call of Netflix, food, and friends start to drown our new year's resolutions. It's normal for our motivation to dip during this period, our bodies are transitioning for harvesting and movement to a period of hibernation - winter is coming! Unfortunately while our monkey brain is wanting to snuggle up in a cave, we need to appeal to the logical side of the brain - the side that set goals .....

These one-hour blocks of time offer social inclusion opportunities, physical benefits, and psychological support. You should never be bored with the variety of the environment in a Group Class.
