Let me take a wild stab in the dark…

You enjoy a drink or three?

No shame there.

Me too.

In fact give me a good red or a nice whisky and we’d get along quite well.

And chances are, with the Long Weekend coming up,

you’re going to enjoy a drop or three.

Maybe even too much.

It happens.

So this news is very timely if you like a drink too.

Well, there’s some interesting research that suggests people who drink alcohol are less likely to die from cancer if they’re physically active.

Pretty cool right?

The findings, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine,

found physical activity may decrease the risks of dying from cancer and other illnesses.

The only thing that I’d say with this research was they expected a minimum 150 hours of exercise a week.

That’s a damn lot.

I’d have you consider that you don’t need that much.

There was no mention of a control group that trained for only 60-120 hours a week.

And I reckon that’s pretty much all you need.

Cause if you’re moving and active and doing something good for yourself it can’t be bad if you enjoy a few drinks here and there.

Call it your get out of jail free card if you will.

Of course, the researchers did point out that it doesn’t give you the license to drink more

– just cause you exercise but that’s stating the obvious don’t you think?

But at least you know it’s not the end of the world if you have a drink or three,

even when you’re trying to lose those stubborn kilos.

But all in all, hearing this news is a good thing.

A little reassurance maybe?

I tell you what else gives you that bit of reassurance?

Getting moving again.

So if you’ve got  some damage to unwind,

or know someone who wants to get started again,

you can reassure them that they won’t have to go all ‘dry’ on us.

Especially if it’s been a long time between drinks for them, so to speak, when it comes to exercise.

They can find us in the CBD or Lilyfield and even if they haven’t done anything for years they’ll be sweet.


Cause you work at your pace at DPM.

Just like you drink at your own pace you can do the workouts at your pace.

Work at your speed and build up as you get more used to it.

Kinda sounds obvious but a lot of training groups or gym classes will just throw you to the wolves and let you fend for yourself.

Not us.

Please pass it onto them and invite them along to our small group sessions that I offer at Lilyfield, Observatory Hill or Dawes Point if you think it may benefit them.

They can find out more info here


Be sure to mention the $200 dinner gift card incentive that you can both benefit from when they’ve been part of DPM for 6 months.

Thanks for spreading the word!


PS-  if they are interested in some one-on-one personal training,

I currently have a Wednesday/Friday morning time slot or Wednesday/Friday lunch time slot available.

If they, or you have any questions, please let me know.

Also, Make sure they register here so you can both be eligible for your $200 dinner gift cards
