How many times have you told yourself “next week I’ll start”? Then next week comes around and you don’t have time, you don’t actually know what to do or you just plain forget!
Personal Training has been proven to get results over 10 times better than working out alone and they both work better than doing nothing! If you want to strip some body fat and drop a little weight or build some upper body strength and increase your cardio fitness, Personal Training is proven to get you to your goals faster and not only that, we can get you past your goals to achieve things you didn’t realise you could do.
We’ve had clients who have started just to meet new friends or just so they can eat what they like or to try and starts doing a little bit of running. Those clients have ran marathons, raced ironman races, dropped up to 50 kilos. We knew they were great and were capable of great things but they didn’t. Not until we showed them how awesome they could be and what their bodies were capable of. Our clients start with small goals, and with our help, someone to show them the way, they have accomplished great achievements.
We know making that first step is the hardest, but once you do make that first step, you’ll never look back. To make that first step a little easier for you Beachside Personal Trainers are offering $50 off all Personal Training packages until Wednesday 26th March 2014.
We realise how hard it is to step out and get a helping hand. We’ve had hundreds of clients tell us how hard It was to make that first phone call and how long they were thinking about it before they finally sent that first email. They look at themselves now and what they were like back then and say thank goodness they did it!
Get ready to make the change. Stop thinking and start doing. Fill out the form below and put “50OFF” in the comments section and we can figure out the best way I can help you achieve the body you want and the fitness you should have. You can read about our clients achievements below the form.
Swimming outdoors is different to swimming in a pool. Practice swimming in different environments (check safe first) as rock pools, lakes, harbours, and protected beaches. The main difference is not having a black line to follow, and no wall to rest on, plus you may need to lift head up and arms more from the water (to see and lift above swell). Whilst swimming in an event aim to observe and follow the more experienced swimmers.Wollongong Harbour is mostly protected and offers shelter from the seas and most winds but it can get bumpy depending on tide and water activity. The water is mostly clean and you can see the bottom on most days. Lifeguards patrol the waters and as a small boat harbour, it is well away from any commercial large vessels. Build up distance. If your aim is 200m (kids or ladies tryaqua) or the short (400m swim) or long (900m), work up to achieving half of the distance in one go. Once you achieve this, add two lots of half distance (ie 200m + 200m with a minute or two rest), than reduce the ‘rest’ to when you can pretty well make the full distance – ideally aim to cover 100-200m more than the event distance before the event day. OPEN water practice: Try rock pools, protected beaches, harbours, lakes and safe open water venues to get used to no black line, bumpy conditions and feeling of ‘open water swim’ grab a Beachside teammate, book a 1-on-1 or private group PT session in by yourself or with a friend or two and of course come to our free group training sessions on Saturday morning. Get the correct gear: swimmers and a good pair of googles is all you need but for those that want extra floatation (for speed and/or comfort) a wetsuit can make a large difference.
• For most people the majority of training will be done in a pool. If it’s your first open water swim, aim to complete a distance a bit further than the event
• You may need to breathe to a side you’re not used to because of swell, other competitors or to help sighting, so try and practice breathing to both sides.Bilateral breathing is better for training anyway because it keeps your stroke balanced.
• You don’t need to just do long distance swims to train for an open water race.Sets of shorter repetitions with rest intervals work well when combined with longer distances, plus they keep training interesting.
• The more efficient your stroke is, the easier it is to swim further. Practice trying to extend each arm pull, and aim to do less strokes per length while keeping your rhythm smooth.
