Lost In Fitness

Power rack – get one! I work in a commercial fitness center – in the sense that people of the public need to pay a charge to utilize it – technically it’s a leisure center. I also instruct classes in private gyms & train clients outside of the gym. Now there are some compromises.

Adductor machine – just say no! Among the nagging problems is people sign up for the industry & get disillusioned. Upper management types can think it’s all about machines and flashing lights & integrated TV screens, anyone can show you how to use these. But over modern times the development has thankfully started to go towards free weights, body weight exercises, kettlebell, barbells, corrective exercise & flexibility work – which require good training skills to teach correctly.

And training associates of the general public who’ve been previously sedentary, inactive, or hurt can be way harder than training sportsmen. I think it was Mike Boyle who said he had a complete new perspective and respect for fitness trainers after doing fitness with some of athletic clients. Of course, there are bad trainers out there, in and out of gyms & sometimes fitness trainers are seen as more advanced than mere fitness trainers. And the discussion of fitness & coaching is a complete other post. But just to illustrate, I was attending a course with a colleague of mine in a fitness center up in London last year, this fitness center is in an exceedingly affluent area. Finally, you don’t need to teach in a commercial fitness center.

Christmas and New Year came and went for another yr and phew we survived. It could appear that my problem with Ron the rooster is no more. The addition of three extra-girls might just be the reason. A pal asked me if I would care for her “girls” who she absolutely adores, as she is no longer in a position to keep them at home.

It is a sort of loan I suppose and a win-win situation for all of us both. But, and it’s a fairly big BUT, they don’t recognize Ron as the rooster “in charge”. In fact, they’re very rebellious and I’ve needed to go traipsing next door on a number of occasions to bring them home. Placing it in perspective our yard is an acre but obviously the grass is always greener almost.

  • 1/2 container green Stevie pulverization
  • Duodenal Switch (or “DS”)
  • 8 row variations
  • Garthe I, Raastad T, Refsnes PE, Koivisto A, Sundgot-Borgen J. Effect
  • 1 bunch Fresh Basil
  • To the degree that the website is provided free-of-charge, for just about any direct reduction

Meanwhile, Ron is beside himself, clucking and dancing and getting little nibbles for them however they just don’t care. In fact last time the girls went walkabout nearby they took Ron with them! My original two, Eddie and Thelma are put out because of it all MOST. They’re behaving like Misses Goodie Two Shoes and don’t wander a long way away from the school house whatsoever too. Which is another perplexing problem for Ron, as how does he oversee two lots of girls in two completely different locations?

In your garden, garlic up harvested and hanging; scarlet runner beans taking over the tank but leaving a little of room for two cucumber plants; the rock melon in the grow house turned into a pumpkin! We’ve consumed lettuces, rocket, sugar snap, and snow peas, pick strawberries each time we walk past them, and are enjoying the blueberries from the one little bush. But our stone fruit, sob, was badly sun burned on the hottest day ever recorded in Tasmania. I believe about 80% of our plums are ruined; 95% of the nectarines (we only got about 20 on the young tree), 50% of the peaches (again a very young tree) however the apricots seem alright.

We have a Moorpark apricot tree and it’s still about fourteen days away from ripening. M went up to Mona Foma (music celebration) the other day and experienced a ball. He stayed at a friend’s unit in Hobart, so he didn’t have to operate a vehicle along every day. I had formed peace and quiet at wow and home, did I get a whole great deal done!
