I trust that you all had a wonderful long weekend and got some time to chill out with family and friends. I had an amazing time at Rottnest, enjoying the Castaway festival and of course those gorgeous quokkas.
I just wanted to give a little shout out to our gorgeous Claudia. Claudia graduated last week and is now a lawyer, such a smart cookie this one! So please congratulate her on her outstanding achievement. Well done !
This hot and humid weather has really tested us this week and it certainly has made bootcamp a massive sweat fest! Please make sure that you stay well hydrated before you get to bootcamp, as this will make a huge difference to your training and recovery.
This week we also celebrated Wayne & Glenn’s birthdays with everyone sharing the love and completing many burpees and we also welcomed Kristyn to the FFP team, so please go introduce yourself if you haven’t met her yet.
Cardio is ON!
Cardio is back in full swing, if you have been thinking about giving it a go, please just do it ! You might surprise yourself. Last week we did some agility foot work in the sand. It was tough on the legs, but everyone smashed it and loved it! We meet at the amphitheatre every Saturday @8am and it’s $15pp. Please byo water and towel.
Every week the Scarborough foreshore is taking on a new shape, with some areas now already open to the public. I had a sticky beak down there yesterday and it looks amazing…. I have even planned some new runs for you all. Can’t wait !
I have organised new FFP T-shirts to be printed, so I will let you know when they are ready for purchase. We will have a range of pink (of course!), black and blue available.
FFP Catch up
We will be having a FFP catch up on Saturday the 24th March @7pm at The Sandbar in Scarborough. Pop in for a drink, a good old gasbag, let your hair down and leave the active wear at home! Txt, email or just let me know at bootcamp if you can make it.
Are you lost for snack ideas?
Sometimes you get sick of eating the same things day in, day out…. I know I do! And sometimes you walk in the door and you are STARVING and just want a quick snack to tie you over until lunch or dinner time. So what do you snack on? Is it healthy? Is it filling? Is it the right type of food I should be eating ?
There are so many choices, but make sure it’s the right choice! The key to making this easier is all in the preparation. If your fridge is full of healthy prepared snacks, then you are less likely to make the wrong choice. So get organised on the weekend so you set yourself up for a healthy week ahead.
Here is a list of some healthy snacks that can be prepared on Sunday and be ready for the week
- Mixed nuts ( a small handful in prefaced bags)
- Hard boiled eggs (keep them in the shell)
- Natural greek yoghurt with mixed berries/fruit or nuts (pop in small tubs for up to 2 days ahead)
- Apple slices/celery with peanut or almond butter (approx 4 slices or sticks)
- Small can of tuna
- A piece of fruit - rockmelon, watermelon and pineapple can be cut up in advance and will keep for approx 2-3 days)
- 1/2 a protein shake
- Protein balls (1-2)
- Chopped veggies with hummus or homemade Tzatiki
- Snack pack of roasted chickpeas
- A small square of homemade frittata packed with veggies
I hope this helps you get your snacks sorted. If you would like more info or would like to give me your food diary, or you may just have some questions regarding food and snacks, please come and see me.
The week of the 26th March (the week leading up to Easter) the evening bootcamp sessions will be on at 6pm on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday only.
There will be NO bootcamp on Thursday evening at 6pm. Many people take advantage of getting away on their holidays early and it’s usually a very quiet night at bootcamp. So please make sure you get along to the Mon, Tues and Weds session and then enjoy the extra long weekend!
There is NO bootcamp on the Friday (30th March) or Monday (2nd April) as these are public holidays.
To make up for the Monday public holiday there WILL BE a TUESDAY 6pm class on the 3rd April (and the regular 6am & 9am sessions).
So don’t miss it !!! You will need to come along and burn off all those Easter eggs anyway!
Please pencil in Saturday 5th May for our Charity bootcamp (time TBA). It will be a great family fun bootcamp session and we are raising money for a fantastic cause, the Ocean Heroes. It will be minimum $10 per person or $20 per family. Ocean Heroes will also be joining us!
So bring along the kids, parents, grandparents etc and I look forward to seeing you all then!
Don’t forget that we are also selling the Entertainment Book at FFP and 20% of proceeds go to our charity. You can pre order now (books and digital membership available 1st May, 2018) and get $200 worth of extra vouchers to use!
