Glen Barnett discusses the Hamstring Muscles

May 24, 2016

Hamstrings-text-3
Forget the Brazilian Butt Lift to keep the back of your legs and your butt toned – try this effective hamstring exercise to keep gravity at bay.   Your hamstring muscles are the ones at the back of the upper leg.  They play a really important role in your core stability and knee stability.  So how do you get them stronger and more toned?   Firstly, if you have any knee or lower back problems check in with your physio or personal trainer before doing this exercise.

Level 1

Lay on the ground, with your feet about hip width apart. Now step your feet further away from your body so your legs are almost straight.  Pull your toes back so your heels are digging into the ground.  Lift your pelvic floor, draw your belly in and tighten your butt as you lift your hips off the ground then return them part way down.  That’s one repetition.

Increase your pace as you do 8 more then control your movement as you slowly lift one leg and foot upward at a time as if you were slowly walking.  Do about 6 then go back to the quick butt lifts.  Try doing the quick butt lifts alternating with the slow walking for about 1 minute. Have a break for 30 seconds and try another 1 minute set. Repeat.

Level 2

Now to make it harder, place your feet on a stable chair (one that doesn’t slide away from you) and do the same format or even harder…

Level 3

Place your legs on a fit ball.  The fit ball of course is very unstable so the idea is to keep it a still as possible as you do the exercise.  Feel your hamstrings sing!

Call Glen or Jacqui on 66586222 for more information.

Exclusive Worlds Best Health Supplements HAVE ARRIVED!

nanos overview

Our quest to find the healthiest all natural supplements on the planet took us overseas earlier this year and it may have taken us six months to organise it but finally they have arrived. We tasted and researched over 100 different products before we decided who we would align our brand with. We are now pleased to announce that we hold the exclusive license on the Coffs Coast for the Nano range of products from BioPharma Scientific.
 
Their patented SuperSorb® delivery system allows your body to absorb the maximum amount of the nutritional value for better results, guaranteed. In addition, all of their products are non-GMO, organic, and 100% plant based with absolutely zero synthetic ingredients. They are based on new, scientifically-advanced, physician grade formulas with the highest quality ingredients sourced from the cleanest parts of the world.

Let’s just say their 
shaker
products do all the talking for themselves.

BioPharmaSc’s four most popular products are NanoGreens, NanoProtein, NanoEPA Fish Oil and NanoLean. They can now be purchased through reception individually or as a four pack for 5% OFF.
 
Did you know? Each serve of NanoGreens has the equivalent of 10 serves of organic fruit and vegetables! Have a chat to your trainer about which products are most appropriate for your needs.

Why I Love Being a Personal Trainer

September 4, 2012

Have you every thought of becoming a Personal Trainer?

Here is some insight into the life of a Personal Trainer.  

I feel truly blessed to work everyday as a Personal Trainer. It gives me the opportunity to help others improve themselves everyday and constant self-improvement is something that is very important to me. I strongly believe that consistent exercise, a good diet, and a healthy lifestyle are incredibly powerful tools for preventative and reactive medicine. There is nothing better than helping somebody improve their self-confidence, lose 3 waist sizes, build muscle they’ve never had before, treat debilitating diseases, decrease insulin-dependence, reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, improve sleep quality, or get off medication they’ve been taking for years. If something can be improved naturally and without dangerous side effects or huge bills, I believe that is usually the best route to take in a treatment plan.

Training clients everyday also helps to keep me accountable and disciplined. One of the things I hate the most in this world is hypocrisy so I need to practice what I preach. I’m far from perfect but I would never make one of my clients do something that I have never done myself or something I don’t currently do. This helps to ensure that I serve as a good role model for my clients and keep my fitness level up high. There are so many amazing people that I have met as a Personal Trainer and I continue to meet more great people everyday. I’ve been inspired by many individuals over the past 6 years that overcame or continue to overcome incredible obstacles in their lives to become much healthier. Their quality of life improves drastically and that helps keep me motivated to continue training clients everyday.  Michael J. Schiemer Certified Personal Trainer
