The Wacky World of Tennis!

If you’re anything like me, then you’ll always be on the lookout for the most entertaining and up to date tennis news.  I have a few favourite sites, one of which is the newly established, yet thoroughly concise http://www.thewackyworldoftennis.com/

What to tell you about it? Well, I could prattle on, back and forth (like a never-ending Djokovic and Murray rally) about all it’s tennis related news and information, but to really get the most from it, you should get on over there yourself and lob a few volleys around!

One item of interest for me, was the article on how to earn yourself a tennis scholarship. Food for thought indeed!

Top sport and football live streaming site reviewed

There are certain feelings you get when you are in a stadium, when you hear your fellow fans cheer and your favourite sport or football stars walk onto the pitch. You feel excited and eager to see how the match unfolds. It is an exciting day for football fans, win or lose, emotions and excitement will be high. For moments like this, if you can’t check in to the game at the stadium, you can check in online. Why miss a game, why miss out on those magical moments?

Online streaming of sport and football matches is getting increasingly popular for this exact reason. Fans love watching their favourite team play. Watching the highlights is not the same as experiencing the game live, when anything can happen at any time.

Bring the Gym to YOU!

I love working out at the gym, but one thing that bugs me about keeping fit is the time I spend in my car shuttling between the gym and my home or workplace.  It simply feels like a waste of time to me, especially with some of the ludicrous amount of traffic we have here in Melbourne.

The wasted time I spent sitting in a vehicle, coupled with my other bug bear (using gym equipment straight after someone else has sweat all over it!!) prompted me to invest in home gym equipment, and I haven’t looked back since!  No more sweaty handles, no more traffic jams – I just train exactly when and how I want!

Fitting Weight Loss and Fitness Goals In A Busy Lifestyle

 

Are you trying to lose weight but have a very busy life with work and social commitments? Not to mention the family needs that must be met. It can be hard to think of a special diet when you are cooking for a family and they are used to eating certain foods. My son recently decided to go on a health kickand we all had to move to brown rice. Great for health but it challenged some of the other family members.

It’s important to consider different strategies to help you achieve your fitness and weight loss goals. Some of the better personal trainers have supermarket shopping tours that help you to choose the best foods for your diet. One of the most important things to remember is to keep your portions small. Eating more often but in smaller sizes is by far the best option if you are trying to lose weight.

Consider swapping fried food for grilled or steamed. Fish is delicious when grilled with lemon and herbs or steamed with Asian greens like Bok Choy. Mixing your fish with a delicious salad that has a lemon, dash of olive oil and salt and pepper dressing will also give you a delicious and filling meal.

If you find you’re feeling hungry after a meal, munch on a carrot or celery stick to stave off the cravings and always drink lots of water. Not only does water help your weight loss and keep you hydrated, but it is great for your skin, teeth and general health and well being.

Try not to cut one food group out altogether (unless it’s sugar or oil!). You can eat some carbs but you need to keep them at a minimum and eat good carbohydrates that help to fill you up without a lot of empty calories (like you get with white bread).

Avoid sugar and fatty foods as they tend to make you crave more and give you a rush and then a big come down.

Mix your diet goals with a healthy exercise routine.

If you find it hard to motivate yourself, one of the best things about living in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney is the incredible number of boot camps and personal trainers like the team at Vision PT Randwick. They can help you stay motivated to reach your fitness and weight loss goals.
Walking along the promenade of any of the beaches along the coast you will see many people outdoors exercising in groups and on their own.

Outdoor Exercise on the Sports Coast

There are times when you want some fresh air, in this case consider some of the great outdoor places in the Eastern Suburbs where you can have a lot of fun alone or with family and friends.

Here are just a few suggestions:

Centennial Park:

Bike riding; there are lots of great bike trails that are safe and allow you to really enjoy a long bike ride. You can hire a bike if you don’t own one and there are bikes for more than one person if you take a friend and feel adventurous.

Walking: with so many lovely long paths and ponds to walk around, this enormous park gives you a lot of options when it comes to taking a long and hard walk.

Roller Blading: You can either bring your own or hire them at the park and have a great time roller blading around the smooth tracks.

Coogee beach:

Wileys Baths, Giles, Mahon Pool: There are so many beach pools and rock pools around Coogee beach, just take your pick. If you feel really adventurous, you can contact the Coogee Surf Club and do their Bronze medallion life saving certificate. You get to run, swim and use the paddle boards. Plus you can then volunteer as a lifesaver and maybe even save a life while staying fit and making lots of new friends.

Beach: there are so many different exercises beyond swimming. Paddle boards and surf skis as well as body boards and the occasional good surf day to take a full surf board out, Coogee beach has it all and is well patrolled if you aren’t a confident swimmer.

Walk the paths from Coogee to Maroubra or Coogee to Bondi:

The path from Coogee to Maroubra goes past the infamous “Stairs of Doom” that will definitely give your workout a serious edge. Start by taking them slowly and then follow them up with a jog around the path.

Walking from Coogee to Bondi beach is one of the longer walks that takes about 1.5 – 2 hours and has a few good hills and stairs to give you a good work out. If you take it at a brisk pace you’ll find you have a good work out. Take the time to do a few stretches and use the benches and playground equipment to do chin ups and step ups to increase the range of muscles that are given good workout.
