Don’t know about you, but I love hearing the stories of the old sledges back in the day.

When sports people were allowed to have personalities.

And also give a gob full without the fun police and politically correct brigade being up in arms.

Here’s a couple that come to mind:

* George Gregan giving the “4 more years” sledge to Byron Kelleher

after the Wallabies gave the All Blacks another World Cup exit.

Unfortunately those days are long gone…

* Mark Waugh giving some poor Pommy cricketer a serve,

questioning how he ever got to play for England,

only for the Pom whose name escapes me come back with “At least I’m the best player in my family”

* Former NBA legend Charles Barkley giving his teammate (who had a bit of extra baggage) “You could be a great player if you learned two words – I’m full!”

I could go on but those are some of the tamer ones.

Ahh good times.

But this sledge, is probably up there with the worst ones ever.

And it came from the mouth of a kid

“Are you pregnant in the bum?”


Imagine being asked that!

Kinda like the people who ask a woman when the babies due.

Not cool.

I learned from seeing my Dad put his foot in it one day, ‘

and also a mate at my Dads funeral do the same thing.

At least it took my mind off the occasion for a brief moment.

But hearing that from some inquisitive kid isn’t a good thing for the old confidence.

And hearing that could send you two ways

1) to the nearest block of family size chocolate


2) the comment that finally makes you realise all is not good

Now, far be it from me to say that you’re pregnant in the bum or worse.

That’s not my place.

My place though, is to help someone who might be at the point that they want to do something about it.

Just like a bunch of awesome girls who’ve just finished a 4 week online transformation.

There’s been some great stories and successes that I can’t wait to share with you.


In only 4 short weeks.

So if you’re looking for some direction,

then maybe it’s time you joined the DPM Small Group Personal Training experience.

We’re at Lilyfield or Observatory Hill and you get the sessions in before you start your busy day in the office.
