With any structured sports currently on pause through COVID for the boys. It’s super critical we create our own fun active workouts for the family.

Anyone else feeling a little cramped while working from home? πŸ˜…

It's easy to get stagnate when you're not walking to meetings or getting up to talk to co-workers during the day. We've started putting a daily meeting on our calendar to remind us to move!

TRY THIS:

10 Squats

10 Split Lunges

10 Plank In-and-Outs

10 Sit Ups

10 Leg Lifts

*repeat for a total of 5 rounds

Anyone Else Have a BIG August?

Maybe it's just me but I had a VERY excessive August. Maybe it's down to being in Lockdown for the 4 months. Maybe it's because my work life has been an upward battle. Maybe I'm just making excuses? More likely the latter. I ate in a huge surplus. I trained far too much. I drank more alcohol than I usually would and I worked&n

Hell Hole Falls is a ~5km out-and-back trail located in Mount Jerusalem National Park, Northern New South Wales. 

The trail begins in iconic Australian bush surroundings - crunchy ground underfoot, eucalyptus trees towering above and the sound of birds, bees and bugs zipping around. After a little time on the flat, the trail heads downhill and transitions into more tropical surrounds with palm trees and ferns in abundance. The final stretch of the trail follows a creek to a series of rock pools and small waterfalls before a plunge over the Tweed Valley. 

The track is a really easy walk and follows a well-maintained fire trail until the last couple of hundred meters. If you don’t mind a dip, pack some swimming gear. The rock pools are pretty crisp and a real treat on a hot day. 

It’s not a walk I’d do regularly due to the distance from home but certainly one I’ll do again when I stay nearby and want a bit of easy adventure time.

Oh man, that looks like a whole bunch of wonderful to me. I've got trail shoes and a camera bag, next time you're thinking about going, hit me up!
