The Biology of Band-Aids

I was having a great conversation on That Paleo Show the other day with a guy by the name of Paul Thompson (aka The Barefoot Podiatrist) about our health care system and why we seem to be so keen to go for the quick fix, the bandaid solution rather than try and resolve the underlying […]

Running Without Running

CrossFit, especially CrossFit Endurance make some big claims about their ability to train endurance runners without the need to do endurance running. “Our strength and conditioning approach for endurance athletes is unparalleled. We incorporate the CrossFit fundamentals of being constantly varied. Repetition is the enemy and results in a decreased ability to build fitness”

I have […]

This morning was the CrossFit open again. This time it included muscle ups (which I cannot do) and it really made me think about my relationship with failure.

My first gut reaction was stuff it. If I can do all the movement why try at all. If I can’t win, what’s the point. Then I remembered […]

Why You May Be Feeling Sooo Tired & Wired
The new working year is well under way and I hear you, you’re hanging out for some time out. With busyness being the status quo these days, unfortunately the vulnerable adrenal glands often take a hit. If pushed enough throughout the year your adrenal function is firstly overstimulated (in […]

50 Shades of Paleo: What I REALLY think of The Paleo Diet

There seems to be so much confusion out there about just what is and what is not The Paleo Diet.

Just the other day I was confronted by two otherwise very intelligent, very knowledgeable health professionals who were surprised that I still ate fruit on my ‘Paleo Diet’. This is my response.

There also seems to be […]

You’re Here For You

Sarah, our new trainer at Greenhill Family Fitness, has a saying that she likes to repeat over and over: ‘You’re here for you!’, and I think it is a fantastic mantra to have.

So often in our modern health care system people want to pass on the responsibility for their health and their actions to someone […]

Why I Hate The 80:20 Rule

The 80:20 rule is an oft repeated and much loved mantra in health and wellness circles. The principle (and I think it a quite sound one) is that if you can get your diet and exercise 80% right then you will get most of the benefits that you would otherwise get if you did it […]

Why I Jumped

In case you missed one of my not so subtle brags on Facebook or at The Wellness Summit in Melbourne or on my TV screen at Greenhill   Family Chiropractic I just want to let you know that a couple of weeks ago I jumped out of an aeroplane!

Running right

You don’t need anyone to teach you how to run, right? Well, that’s what I thought until recently, when I realised that for most of the first 30 years of my life I have been doing it wrong. It had never made sense to me that running was considered such an unhealthy activity in terms […]

Why I don’t use exercise machines

I wish I had a dollar for every time someone has asked me what type of exercise equipment they should buy, or use at the gym, or which one is the best. Whether it is the more commonly used machines at the gym or the shall we say ‘unique’ ones you can purchase on TV, […]
