Back pain is one of the most common reasons for time off work and low productivity, but I’d like to share with you what everyone should know about lower back pain. Frequently back pain is caused by a shortening of the hip flexor muscles that run from the top of your hip to the top […]

In this day and age, technology has become an integral part of our daily lives, from the way we communicate, to the way we entertain ourselves. We are all very reliant on technology so it comes as no surprise that it has seeped its way into our workplace as well. Technology plays an important role […]



Staying Afloat – How to Deal With Hidden Stress

May 30, 2017 | Jo Cordell-Cooper

Are you a typically busy women juggling many balls – could you be dealing with hidden stress?  Hidden stress is all the little (and sometimes big) things in life that add up to you feeling over whelmed and ‘stressed’ at a hormonal level.   I had a client say to me “it doesn’t matter how […]



Stretch Your Way to Productivity

April 27, 2017 | Jo Cordell-Cooper

If you have busy times at the desk where you are super focused and industrious you are probably not paying too much attention to your posture.  Typically when we are in the highly productive work mode we adapt a posture of slightly sitting forward, perhaps rounding over the keyboard, chin jutting slightly forward.  However, with […]

Christmas has well gone, and if those extra kilos are still hanging on, like the ones from the year before, you’re probably feeling not quite so fabulous right now.   And have you noticed, the less fabulous you feel, the more you criticise yourself, the more you reach for comfort food or drink?

This article is not about workplace flexibility and being able to plan your day around your children’s athletics carnival.  It’s about hamstring flexibility (tricked you) and how important this is in achieving back health.   First things first, your hamstrings are the muscles at the back of your upper leg. When you bend to touch […]

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

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 […]
