I was returning home from a shopping trip to my favourite market – Victoria Market and was considering the opportunities 2014 will bring. ‘A fresh new year’, I thought to myself and then something struck me as odd. Here I was thinking about what I hope to accomplish and the excitement of what the year may hold for me, mentally preparing for future events and then it all seemed strange.
December and January are great months to reflect – thinking of the year past and looking forward to the next and I have to confess, I am really looking forward to FILEX coming to Melbourne.
Australian Fitness Network has been the one consistent in my 25 year career in the fitness industry and I know, from experience, they will exceed my expectations yet again. Yes, every year since 1996, I have attend FILEX without missing one, and each year, it really does get better. I am amazed at how they keep getting better, whereas most other events lose their momentum or become lack lustre after a period of time. The sessions are informative discussing hot topics, the presenters are educational and inspirational and my favourite sessions are the opening and closing ceremony.

I recently attended another of Marietta’s magical workshops in Wellington NZ.
I am a PT working out of the northern suburbs of Christchurch and am undergoing the Gymstick transformation… that is, I am in the process of seeing the light that Gymstick offers for all my clients. However, I have difficulty undertaking exercise myself due to impending ankle surgery. Knowing how intense Marietta’s courses are I was really worried that my ankle wasn’t going to survive the day. So I furiously rubbed a load of ibuprofen gel on it (at 5am) and prayed that it would hold out.
I can honestly say that I was able to walk that night (which is most unusual) even after all the balancing and weight bearing I had done on it. The fact that I had minimal pain after the session was remarkable … it gives me hope for the future, which has been ominously grim recently as far as exercise is concerned. But now I am motivated to work the right foot with my gymstick when I’m in a plaster cast and moon boot knowing that my rehab on the left one will be a lot quicker.
So THANK YOU! Hope is all I need to believe that I can keep training clients (and myself) effectively into the distant future and Marietta and Gymstick have given me that… priceless.
Are your Gymstick bands well used and not as much of a challenge as they used to be? Maybe it’s time for some new ones!
You can put any colour band on any colour stick so why not try the next resistance up!?
