When That Standing Desk Isn’t The Solution

February 13, 2017 | Jo Cordell-Cooper

I’ve heard such great things about standing desks and how they aid productivity and physical health (in particular posture).  We know we are not meant to sit all day so standing must be a much better option.  So I lashed out and bought a standing desk and placed it in a new work space I’d […]

I’m a big fan of setting fitness goals, particularly when I’m super busy in my business.  Importantly, part of the goal setting is to set a deadline and frequently when I am helping my clients set goals we look at community fun runs and events.  These have a time line and from there we plan […]



Great Apps For Healthy Living

December 5, 2016 | Jo Cordell-Cooper

There’s loads of apps available to help you with healthy lifestyle choices.  Here are my favourites addressing nutrition, exercise and relaxation: MapMyRun – this GPS exercise recorder is highly accurate and can give you information such as distance covered, the actual route, time, average speed, and calories burned.  This information can be stored for comparison […]



At last, The Secret to Healthy Eating is Revealed

November 14, 2016 | Jo Cordell-Cooper

Are you confused about food and what to eat, when to eat and what not to eat?  As a Fitness Professional I get confused by the large amounts of conflicting evidences around nutrition.  My recent visit to FILEX National Fitness Convention in Melbourne clarified some issues for me and reinforced some important truths. 1) beautiful […]



Are You Missing in Action?

October 17, 2016 | Sue Lester

Have you gone missing in action?  Yes, you’re physically still present, rushing here and there, juggling home and work commitments.  Your family, staff and clients can see your body, but where are you? The real you, inside, the you that was always fun, with a taste for adventure in life – do you even remember […]



Pokemon Go – Fitness App or Fitness Irritation

October 12, 2016 | Jo Cordell-Cooper

Pokemon Go

I downloaded Pokémon Go in August as I was hearing so much about it in the media I was curious (and I like to have some clue as to what my kids are talking about).  This game is downloaded to your smart device and is the cleverest use of technology I’ve ever seen!  In the […]



The First Step Is the Hardest

September 29, 2016 | David Solomon

So what is it and why is it so hard? In this post I am talking about health and fitness, but really this is a metaphor for life. When I started on my weight loss journey it seemed impossible to me. I had an imperative but it was also a big and audacious goal. I […]



Gen Y Work Perspective: Why Is a Work-life Balance Needed?

September 26, 2016 | Fonthip Ward

The idea of a balance between work and life has become almost foreign in the 21st century. With technology’s ubiquity, constantly tackling work requests online and over the phone has become commonplace for a portion of the population even when they are vacationing. For others, their social and personal lives have a much more prominent […]



Why Does a Personal Trainer Have a Personal Trainer? (and why you should too)

August 15, 2016 | Jo Cordell-Cooper

One thing that has always perplexed my husband is my decision to have a personal trainer.  You see I am a personal trainer.  I work out of a gym and I also have a garage full of gear.  I have the expertise to write myself a program.   I decided to get a PT when I […]



Improve Your Productivity in Just 12 Minutes – The Happy Walk Way

August 14, 2016 | Jo Cordell-Cooper

I’ve been working with a few super busy women lately, women who run small, successful businesses who are responsible for all aspects of their success.  Any woman who goes into business initially juggles multiple roles and demands – agreed?   As a fitness and health professional looking in, it’s pretty clear to me that working […]
