ALL

A rainy, cold, wintery Thanksgiving is pretty much a poster day for 2020. Normally Iโ€™d be turkey ๐Ÿฆƒ trotting my way to afternoon football ๐Ÿˆ and pumpkin pie. It was hard to motivate gearing up the kids for a stormy 5K at the end of a year that still has no finish line in sight...

All the more reason to get out and show 2020 what you got - face the rain & run straight into the wind! 

Because itโ€™s good for the mind and body. Because itโ€™s tradition. Because itโ€™s important to keep traditions. Because getting it done when itโ€™s uncomfortable makes you stronger.  

Ans also because my coach scares me. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ณ

It wasnโ€™t pretty. But Iโ€™m grateful our little crew can still run and we did it. 

Happy Thanksgiving ๐Ÿ!!! Go get it!

Good morning and Happy Monday, Active Place community! This first post has been a long time coming since I signed up a couple of weeks ago, but I'm looking forward to connecting with a few like-minded individuals on here and hopefully learning a little bit from those of you from other sporting disciplines. 

I'm Tom, an ex semi-pro rugby player and former marketing professional, turned full-time Personal Trainer and TRX Coach. Interests are rugby (obviously), strength & conditioning/weight training, TRX (also somewhat obvious), nutrition and general wellness. 

Would love to hear your thoughts and/or experiences of TRX as a training tool, as well as how you've used it or seen it used in the past.
Here's to opening conversations... ๐Ÿ˜Š

From Marathons to IronMan โ€“ Watch Me Tri Week 1

The magnitude of IronMan should have been obvious from the onset - especially the ticket shock on my face as I clicked the finalize registration button for IronMan Texas and almost 4 figures zipped away from my bank account in a click. But, no...obvious did not slap me in the face. As a marathoner, pair of sneakers, pavement, get going. So I thoug

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 donโ€™t mind a dip, pack some swimming gear. The rock pools are pretty crisp and a real treat on a hot day. 

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