1. Don’t skip breakfast: Instead, opt for a filling and healthy breakfast to start the day off on the right food, and avoid over-eating when it gets to lunch and dinner time. For example, eggs on wholegrain toast, a wholegrain cereal, such as Weetbix with low-fat milk or fruit and yoghurt.
2. Stick to healthy plate portions: aim to have half your plate filled with non-starchy vegetables or salad vegetables (i.e. everything but potato, sweet potato and corn).
3. Avoid Boxing Day over-eating by freezing leftovers on Christmas Day in individual portions that can be defrosted when required.
4. Take time to appreciate the foods you are eating; put your fork down between bites and take notice of the flavour and texture of foods when you are eating.
5. Drinking alcohol can add to the merriment of the festive season, but you don’t need to drink in excess to be the life of the party. Aim to have at least two alcohol free days per week, and try not to have more than 2 alcoholic drinks per day.
6. Keep up your exercise over the holidays! Ask for a gym membership for Christmas and get outside on Christmas Day with the family for a game of backyard cricket or touch football between courses.

As this quarter sees the launch of PUMP #100 there is actually going to be a GLOBAL launch of this class on Saturday the 14th of January (pop that one in your diary) so for our Super Saturday and Monday Madness we will showcase ‘the best of the best’ of past releases to get you ready for the BIG 100! All the other Les Mills classes will feature the LATEST release.
Super Saturday at Toormina – Saturday 17th December
Monday Madness at Moonee – Monday 19th December
The theme for this launch is CHRISTMAS!! So throw on your fabulous Christmas gear, bring your friends, get into the Christmas Spirit and you might just win a PRIZE!
What is your favourite business on the Coffs Coast? Do you own a business and would like to get some free advertising? Do you work in a business that you think could benefit our members? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you time to act is NOW!
The Coffs Coast Health Club Member Privileges List compiles a list of Coffs Coast businesses that create an offer or discount specifically for our members. The business wins because they get more clients and our members win because they save money. Its how business should be done… Shop local!
We love hearing your feedback, listening to your fabulous ideas and getting your requests. In answer to many of your requests Santa has come early at Coffs Coast Health Club!
You will be excited to know that we have just installed a massive air conditioning unit in the group exercise studio at Moonee. The room is a bit smaller & doesn’t have the natural airflow of Toormina’s main studio, so this has been the number one request from Moonee since last Summer. The feedback so far has been very positive, so it might be time for you to head on in and see what all the fuss is about.
In the last two weeks we have also purchased new kettlebells, slam balls, aerobic steps, tricep ropes, an olympic swiss bar and resistance bands. We have also ordered a couple of free wheel bikes as an extra warm up or circuit class option for both clubs.
A common request from our 50+ classes has been a circuit timer with variable timings and a large display, so we have just received one each for the Main Studio at Toormina and one is in the Studio at Moonee. Enjoy!
All clothing and specially marked accessories are now discounted by 10%-60%. That means bargains starting at just $10 in both clubs!
BSC Limited Edition VIPER COLLECTION Compression Tights!
Handcrafted from High Performance Compression Fabric, in a luxe ‘Snake Skin’ pattern, these tights will create a flattering look for any body type.
All Coffs Coast Health Club Merchandise is also heavily discounted. Tshirts, Singlets, Hoodies, Hats, Bags and more so come down today and pick up a bargain! We have something for everyone.
Every year we collect for worthwhile charities and this year is no different. The club spirit we have is immense and those in need benefit from all of our combined generosity. We have two ways this year to help…
Share The Dignity:
‘It’s in the bag’ campaign asks that we donate a handbag you no longer use, fill it with items that would make a woman feel special and even pop a thoughtful note into the bag to show her that someone cares and that she matters. Drop your bag to reception at Coffs Coast Health Club Toormina or Moonee, whichever is most convenient. All donations need to be in by 3rd Dec.
REAP Coffs Harbour is a passionate and lively group of volunteers who collect food for disadvantaged local residents who are ‘doing it tough.’ Drop your items to reception at Coffs Coast Health Club Toormina or Moonee, whichever is most convenient. All donations need to be in by 17th Dec.
Need some extra motivation, a new goal to aim for or just to hang out with your crew? Why not join your trainers, instructors and fellow members at one of the following events this month… We’d love to see you there…
