What’s been happening at FFP?
- New recruit
- FFP Catch up
- Foam Rolling workshop
- Next 6 week Challenge - pencil it in!
- First Aid
- NO bootcamp 24th Sept
Well it’s been a busy few weeks at bootcamp and it’s finally Spring, which means it’s not so hard to get out of bed at 6am as the sun is already shining. Woop woop!
In the coming weeks the evenings will become lighter too and it will be great to be able to warm up and train outside again.
I’m super excited to announce that we have a new recruit for the FFP team. Khama has already taken a few bootcamp sessions and she is certainly entertaining you all with her warm up games! If you haven’t had the chance to meet her yet, please go introduce yourself and show her what an awesome team we have at FFP.
So that bring us to 3 trainers now at FFP! With myself, Abby and Khama running the sessions together and some solo, it means you get a variety of trainers (so you are not always stuck with me!), a variety of warm ups/cool downs, plus having more than one trainer there means we make sure you are training correctly and to the best of YOUR ability.
It also means it allows me time so I can spend it studying/learning new exercises/equipment and writing new programs etc, which is all for your benefit.
So if you turn up to training and I’m not there, don’t stress as Abby and Khama are awesome and I am sure they will give you a fab workout every time. I currently only have one session off a week (which is the Monday 6am) but that may increase if I need to travel for study in the coming months or in the new year.
Spring is here!
September 1, brought the first day of Spring and our FFP Catch Up at the Lookout in Scarborough. Thank you to everyone that came along, it was great to chill out, have a gasbag and play some silly coin game! There were a lot of laughs, that's for sure!
There will be another FFP catch up to celebrate the year end and Christmas (date TBA) so don't miss that one!
Roll it, Roll it !
Last week I organised Chris from BlackRoll Australia to come out and run a foam rolling workshop for bootcamp members. We had a very impressive turn out and it was great to learn all about the fascia, what it does and why we need to look after it. There was a lot of groaning and gritted teeth at some points as we foam rolled our sore muscles. I hope you all got something out of the session and I am planning on running another workshop in the new year, so if you missed out this time, make sure you get to the next one!
BlackRoll also have an app, so get it on your phone. All you have to do is select the equipment you are using and it will come up with exercises, training and rollout info.
I am putting an order through for foam rollers, mini rollers and duaballs at the end of this week. If you would like to place an order one or enquire about the prices, please email me asap.

First Aid - do you know what to do?
Last week I had to redo my CPR certification as part of my PT registration ( I have to do this every year) and I just thought that I would let you know that there is now a very handy app.
Now some of you may think 'What would I need that for?' BUT it may save a life of YOUR loved one, family or friend one day.
There are 2 apps recommended, one is called St John First Responder and the other is Emergency +
The app will connect you to 000, talk you through on how to administer CPR and it will also show you where the nearest defibrillator is located (so someone else/bystander can get it for you) plus it gives the emergency services your GPS location. All this saves time and in turn it could potentially save a life.
If you haven't done a CPR course before, I highly recommend you do it, especially if you have kids. It will only take 2 hours of your time and cost only $55.
Train anywhere, any time!
Last night I was thrown a bit of a curve ball when I turned up to work. Our usual location was booked for another event and I had to come up with another option super fast... like in 5 minutes or cancel the session... which I have never done!
Luckily, we managed to find a spare classroom, throw all the gear in, get one client redirecting other boot campers into our new location and try and figure out how this was going to work! It was a very small space, filled with 24 hot and perspiring people, working their butts off, trying not to fall on top of each other! It was very amusing and we made it in the end. Thank you everyone for your patience and understanding.
But it really shows that no matter what there is no excuse to NOT work out. All you need is a small area, a few pieces of equipment/or do body weight exercises and you'll still get a super work out.
There is NO Bootcamp on Monday 24th Sept due to the long weekend. See make sure you get along to the 6am session on Tuesday 25th 6am morning to make up for it or any other session that week.
Save the date
No bootcamp 24th Oct
6 week Transformation 8th Oct
Well that's it from me this week. Enjoy this Spring sunshine and try and rest up over the long weekend and remember to get rolling, register for the 6 week challenge and start shredding for summer!
Ralphie has shredded his winter coat and is now all Spring fresh ( if only it was that easy for us!)
Have an awesome week
