Do You Need a Personal Trainer?

Michael Cunico, National PT Manager FF exerciseA couple of weeks ago I spoke to Michael Cunico, National Personal Training Manager at Fitness First, to get a little insight into the most common mistakes he sees happening in the gym (you can check out the full post here).

Australia Day Workout

It’s the Australia Day long weekend here, and I am proud to say that so far I have been to Bondi Beach, run around the Harbour, eaten at a Matt Moran restaurant, drank hipster coffee and a slushie cocktail (not consecutively), had a hangover, been to Bunnings and gotten a Southern Cross tattoo. Now if that’s not the most gloriously Australian weekend I could have had then frankly, I give up. [Read more…]

LGF 2015 Christmas Gift Guide

It’s that time of year again! The countdown to Santa is ON and if you’re anything like me you’re starting to panic.

Medicine Ball Workout 1

Happy Tuesday Team!

It’s been a hectic week here in LGF land, as Lou and I adjust to our new lives as Bondi hipsters. Between visiting the Bondi Farmer’s Markets, late afternoon swims at the beach, breakfasting in North Bondi, finding new places to work out and general exploration of our new environment, we’ve been busy little bees. Yep, while it’s been quite an adjustment for the both of us, we’re trying to make the most of this little piece of heaven you might know as the Eastern Surburbs!
