Many loose 6kg in 6 weeks. 20+cm off the belly. Ultimately as a Trainer the majority of people I see want to loose weight. Anyone who has trained with me, knows that I could care less about what the scale says, your shape, size, age or ability.

My goal is to help get your metabolism moving, and there are a series of things I know you can do naturally to kickstart this, then we work on building muscles, and then that is when the magic starts to happen. It is also about creating the right environment and head space, I want everyone to achieve their goals and get results, I will be there encouraging, checking in to make sure they are on track.

I have felt the effect of Slim & Sassy it does get that metabolism moving. I don’t believe in meal replacement or supplements, I look for the long term. I don’t want anyone feeling disappointed 3 months down the track, it is about creating healthy bodies for life. I do love Slim and Sassy purely as it is all natural based – anyone could put it together. If you would like a bottle conveniently put together check out the bottle in more detail here. It is definitely coming with me on my 3 week holiday, as I know I could become a little sluggish and need to give my metabolism a little helping hand.

Effective tips to help relieve back pain through stretches and essential oil rubs

Do you suffer from Back Pain?

Almost everyone has at some point or has an ongoing issue.  Todays sedentary lifestyle, high comms, seating hunched over an iphone scrolling the internet for hours is no good for our backs.

Hopefully that has got your attention to roll your shoulders back and down, sit up straight, engage your core muscles have your shoulders over your hips and try to give distance between your ribs and hips, neck and ribs.

Walking and sitting with good posture is definitely going to go a long way.  However  you may have suffered an injury or been in an accident like myself.  I spent years in and out of physio and pilates.  Trained my core up and that is really the only thing that has kept me from constant aches and pains.

Being more active and insuring you stay limber, keep mobile, and try to gently move so you don’t start to cause blockages and referred pain…. yes I have been there.  Lower back pain then pops up in the upper back.  Here are some basic moves I first learnt from my physio and then through in depth Pilates training.  As well as some Essential Oils that have provided immense pain relief on numerous occasions.

From sprained ankles to help cool and bring down the inflammation, ice blue rub was a god send to me the night the chiropractor allowed me to take it home.  Much better than crawling to the fridge to re-ice my ankle in the middle of the night.

Please do seek professional medical assistance early as that can make a big difference before long term damage does set in.  I hope you find these tips helpful.
