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 […]



Forget About ‘Losing’ Weight And Think Yourself Slim Instead

April 18, 2017 | Sue Lester

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? Beating yourself […]



Workplace Flexibility For Back Health

March 30, 2017 | Jo Cordell-Cooper

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 […]



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 […]



Run For Fun

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 […]
