Surf Style Training

Get Beach Body Ready NOW!

Summers just round the corner...quick PANIC!!!

No don't! I was kidding! I know spring is all about getting your butt into gear, kick starting your healthy eating plan, spring cleaning your pantry and starting that fitness goal you've been putting off.

But really, slow down...you're just making things WORSE! You know that saying "money is the root of all evil" well so is panic + stress. These are the anti motivators, the fly in your green smoothie, the - you get the picture!

Stress + panic is shit when it comes to working towards a fitter and healthier you!

Not only that but running around like a chicken with it's head cut off, busting out deadlines and in realistic food plans is a recipe for disaster! Do you really think that raw, vegan, dairy, gluten, yeast free diet you’ve never attempted before is going to be sustainable for YOU? Really?

Instead, try treating October like any other month. A transformation, whether into the next stage in your health + fitness journey OR the very first step, it’s like any other month in the year where you make a conscious decision to lead a strong, balanced and harmonic lifestyle.

That being said, in the spirit of all things Australian Summer I have put together a #BeachBodyReadyWorkout using some of my favourite Surf Style Training movements for you to use over the coming months.

Thanks to the team at Mazarine Aqua you can get the full workout video FREE! Just sign up to access the video online, no equipment needed, take it anywhere!

Looking for more #SurfStyleTraining workouts stay tuned for the release of the Surf Style Training membership website coming soon! In the mean time give the #BeachBodyReadyWorkout a crack and I look forward to hearing your feedback!

WHAT I LEARNT FROM THE PROS

A few weeks ago the WSL Bells Beach Pro was on in Torquay Victoria. Bringing to our shores an array of amazing athletes, thanks to Organic Avenue & O'Neill Womens I was given the opportunity to work with a few of the professional athletes and pick their brains about their health and fitness!

Over a few days I took Nikki Van Dijk, Rosy Hodge, Malia Manuel and Whitney Gilmore (Steph's gorgeous older sister) through Active Stretch classes and Surf Style Training asking them how they stay strong, fit and balanced during the tour.

This us what I found -

  • Rosy and Nikki love to run, most days
  • Malia is all about Yoga when she is traveling
  • All the girl eat extremely well
  • They love to visit the local coffee shops and cafes in each town
  • Early mornings are their thing
  • All the girls train hard, in the water, out of the water
  • But not so much between heats, saving their energy for the main event
  • Recover is a BIG DEAL for these ladies
  • Hydration is on the top of their list including plenty of sleep
  • They still deal with things like tight muscles, sore backs and tight hips whenever they don't stretch
  • All of them are strong women, with healthy bodies and looking good is a bonus for them

It was nice to discover that these superhuman humans are human (haha) too and suffer from some of the same ailments as us normal people! What I discovered above everything else is that EVERYONE gets to an elite level of fitness through EFFORT! Working hard! Being consistent with recovery! Check out the FULL GALLERY HERE!

As a bonus I got to receive feedback about the Surf Style Training and Active Stretch programs I went through with them. And stoked! The feedback great, especially about the Active Stretch class which seem to present the real need for more guided stretch classes to be available as I suspected!

END NOTE - Try to stretch everyday, at least 10 - 15 minutes. If you can fit in a deep stretch through Yoga, Active Stretch or a longer session at least once in the week would give you a great recovery boost!
