Fit & Healthy Resolutions For The Whole Year

15 Jan 2017

The New Year is here! And the tradition of the New Year’s Resolutions goes all the way back to 153 B.C. Janus, a mythical king of early Rome was placed at the head of the calendar. With two faces, Janus could look back on past events and forward to the future. Do you have a New Year’s Resolution? Well, if you’re like most Australian’s you’ll have at least one resolution. And, if you are like the majority of these promise-makers, your resolution is probably related to health, fitness & wellness.

Personal Training – The Good, the Bad & the Ugly

27 Oct 2016
