Lesson 1. The importance of sleep – ok, we all know that this is important and I, like a lot of people, are great at preaching, just not doing. So – sleep has become a much bigger priority. And it’s not I just don’t function properly, I don’t make good food choices, have little patience, suffer from incredible headaches and simply see the world as shades of gray. Maybe it’s my age, but I don’t like being tired and cranky – I am pretty horrible then.
Lesson 2. Never start a conversation to impress with a complaint. I was recently in Dusseldorf meeting with several Gymstick distributors. A potential distributor approached us to request the opportunity to distribute Gymstick products, but the conversation started with a list of complaints about the current distributor and other issues that this person felt was ‘unfair’. All I could think about was – how is this convincing us that you are the best person for this request. I could not understand why they were not selling their abilities or what they could do better. I have made this mistake in my career and have often heard other instructors doing the same. Point taken – sell your strengths and avoid commenting on other’s alleged weaknesses or faults.
Lesson 3. Friendships are impossible to value. I have the most amazing friends. I don’t have many and they are very dear to me. I value their opinion, cherish their company and enjoy listening to their experiences, stories and advice. In 2012, I have had some personal challenges that have provided me the opportunity to see who I can lean on. Their support, love and amazing compassion has shown me that life is wonderful, life is grand and life is to be lived.

This month we feature a Gymstick warm up exercise that gets the whole body moving and opening. Click here to watch the video.
Holding the ends of the Gymstick, swing one end of the stick up as high as you can and then swing across to other side. Alternate a single tap with the foot to either side.
If you have completed the Gymstick Muscle Instructor training you can have easy access to more warm up exercises, trios and stretches from Gymstick Online.
Marietta’s Gymstick Muscle training on sunday was amazing. Great piece of equipment. Has a lot of the same advantages of aqua in that there is no impact or bouncing, challenges core and balance, builds strength, great functional workout that allows the user to adjust resistance. I didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as i did!

Aqua Gymstick testimonials
“Deep water aerobics and Gymstick have helped me get rid of my sciatic pain that I have endured for 2 years. They have also helped me lose over 5 kilos and tone my muscles without aggravating my back. If you have exhausted all avenues and still haven’t achieved the results you wanted, I highly recommend that you give them a try.”
“I cannot rave about Aqua Gymstick enough! The Aqua Gymstick IS what’s getting me into shape after baby #3. I can exercise relaxing my tense shoulders and knowing my posture is fabulous. You know you’ve had a fantastic workout when you hop out of the pool feeling like you look like Elle MacPherson”
