No Dad Jokes today.


But a big question that I’m always asked is how often do you train?

See, some people might have the impression that I train everyday and love it.

And that you should too.


Some others have the idea that all I do is stand around and tell others what to do.

Not that either.

Just sometimes…

See, the truth is I used to train every day – well 6 days a week.

And twice a day at that.

Guess I was a bit obsessed.

That was back in the day.

In my 20’s with all the time in the world on my hands.

Was single, no kids and obviously not much of a life either to be able to do that.

Kinda went from one extreme to the other,

from being out on the cans all the time to that.

Nowdays, like you, I’ve got a ton of other things I’d rather be doing than exercising.

Like spending time with Emily for one.

Plus paying for the all the old injuries I used to ignore and not rehab properly makes it a hell of a lot harder to move around now.

To be honest, I’d rather be spending time with the fam.

Or sitting on the lounge watching footy or basketball or getting into a new tv series on Stan.

Now it’s The Shield.

Yep, I know, only 15 years behind everyone else right?

So how often do you train each week?

Are you worried that it isn’t enough?

Now it’s time to answer the question for me.

Most weeks, I train 2 days a week with a workout.

Saturday and Sunday I like to go for a walk – 40-60 mins depending on how long I have available.

I’d rather spend the day doing what I like doing.

Not training like a madman.

The other 2 sessions are 30-40 mins tops.

Surprise you?

Or make you feel more comfortable maybe about your training total?

I hope so.

You see, I’ve come to realise that you don’t have to train every day to get anywhere.

You don’t have to commit hours each week.

* Especially when you follow what works,

* just like in our DPM sessions.

I take the same approach cause I know it’s not the favourite thing you’d rather be doing each week.

My training total might surprise you?

Sure, I get in incidental exercise like walking here and there a few days a week on top of that.

That’s an added bonus and I encourage you to do the same.

But the days of training for hours and hours just to get any results are long gone.

The beauty of less time to train just means when you do it = you do it properly.

Just like anything.

Human nature leads us to getting more done if we have a short deadline to do something.

Probably explains why you’re busy compared to the muppet who sits next to you who seems to do nothing all day except surf google.

Just like exercise.

It means we’ve gotta train efficiently and only do exercises that are going to give us the biggest bang for our buck.

I encourage you to do the same.

Make sense?

Want to experience some of that for yourself,

so you have more time to do what you want to do the rest of the week?

this is your last week to take advantage of my personal training options before I take them off the table.

This is what is available as we speak:

– Wednesday and Friday morning 7:15am-7:45am

– Wednesday and Friday 12:00pm-12:30pm

Location is at either Dawes Point or Observatory Hill near The Rocks.



Questions? Hit reply and let me know.

First in best dressed.

You can either do both sessions in the time slot or even once a week if you need a tune up to complement the rest of your training.
