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

FUELLING A MULTI-STAGE ULTRA MARATHON FOR VEGAN RUNNERS

Running multi-stage ultra marathons often means being self-sufficient for days at a time. Freeze-dried or dehydrated food is therefore a necessary component of the multi-stage adventure. Lightweight, easy to prepare and energy dense, you’ll struggle to find a more convenient fuel source when running 250km in the desert, jungle or mountains,

THE RISE OF VEGANISM WITHIN ULTRA RUNNING

In the last ten years, participation in ultramarathon events has grown by 345% worldwide (according to RunRepeat). In the same period of time, veganism has grown at a similar rate, rising 300% in the UK alone (there are now an estimated 600,000 vegans in the UK, according to The Vegan Society). Coincidence?!?
Well, yes, probably. That said, while

As someone who cares deeply about my health, not just for my physical activity but for my mental health, day to day performance and longevity I follow and trust the opinion very much of Dr Ronda Patrick. She has produced a lot of content and a lot of insights into whatโ€™s good for your health, and there is nothing more profound then her discoveries on heat exposure through the use of a sauna.

www.foundmyfitness.com/topics/sauna

When you get a moment, check out this topic on the use of saunas and why they are possibly the best thing you can do for your health. There are countless studies showing that heat exposure reduce the rate of death and disease. Dr Ronda is a firm believer that in the near future, saunas will become the primary treatment for the majority of both relatively harmless, and life ending disease.

Talking to Ursula Hurworth. Daily Loop No.6

I got up early on the 6th of September, meandered down to the Fox's Pantry and filled my cup with a steaming wake up call, shortly after, I headed to the The Event Crew's Gold Coast Running Festival. I was there to shoot photos, soak up the atmosphere of the first Covid-normal mass participation event in a long time and just generally mill about.

Today marks the end of the Heart Foundation MyMarathon Challenge that I and 10,870 other people took part in. I'm really blown away by the support i've been shown, not just online, in real life too. I've learnt a few REALLY valuable things this month, most notably that I DO have the ability to find the time to be more active, 10 - 15hours per week on average, and my work hasn't suffered, nor has my family life, I actually feel like I just somehow found extra time... funny what prioritising can do! I feel awesome, and proud of what i've done this month. My knees held up and everything! Thanks for joining the journey, i'm going to keep walking and interviewing people, it's way too enjoyable not to! X Troy
