One of the most common requests we get asked each week is for options for low carb meals.
Part of our answer is that the only meal which is important to be 'strictly' low carb is evening meals and snacks... If you haven't got dinner organised for tonight yet, here's a fantastic chicken option. Enjoy!
Mediterranean chicken with cauliflower rice

Why do people train? Initially, it's about achieving a goal that is personal to an individual.
Why do people continue training? They see results and enjoy what they are doing.
We believe it is all about mixing business with pleasure. Although results is what we focus on. We still have fun a long the way. As we all know; It's the journey that tells the story.
So why not have the experience of a life time when training rather than making it seem like a chore. So rather than carrying on with what you're doing when you achieve a little milestone, go out and celebrate it. Go out with some mates, go do an adventure race, go to a sorts game, have a cheeky pizza or whatever it may be. Reward yourself and don't think twice.
What will happen from doing this? It makes it easy to be consistent, creates a fun lifestyle, increased positivity and most importantly; memories that can be shared over a life time.
Let the fun begin.
Big congrats to this 'brave' crew for attending the latest Secret 6X.
On a very stormy night yesterday we travelled into the city to attend the latest exhibition by Body Worlds Vital to experience the human body like never before.
What a great experience!
For details and registration for the next Secret 6X, we will be hosting another later this year, don't miss out SECRET 6X
And that's how fast four weeks goes... Hold on tight, the next four goes even quicker!
Look forward to some events coming up in the next month to have you firing on all cylinders for the finish line of the challenge
The leaders in overall weight loss so far are
Fire up team, this is going to be four weeks to remember!
We've gained momentum in the challenge this week with members noticing changes in their fitness, strength, endurance and overall ability within the gym.
It's amazing just how quickly changes happen when training consistently and in particular one-on-one with your personal trainer. This crew, and many more, are pumping through over 5 training sessions each week which would leave some wondering about the chance of burnout, fatigue and injury however speak to any of these guys and you'll come to realise the balance of cardio, weights, stretching and education has them all fired up to train even more.
With the increased fitness we're looking forward to seeing the results continue to speed up in this next week and second half of the challenge, we're really excited to see everyone's half way check-in scans.
See you in the gym!
Week 2 of the challenge is complete and the results are mixed this week.
Some lost weight, others gained weights, some lost less than last week... others like this great man lost MORE than the first week!
Shout out to Alex Renwick for owning his challenge this week. After week one, Alex was please with his result of a couple kilos however on writing it on the progress board and witnessing what others achieved in comparison, Alex decided he could do better, and that he did, losing a cool 3.1kgs in the last 7 days.
Strict meal plans and daily PT has Alex on track and powering towards his goal of 24kg in this 8 weeks.
Proud of you mate!
See you in the gym
On Saturday, we saw this crazy crew tackle the Sand Dune Challenge and they absolutely smashed it!
Some met at the studio and carpooled, others knew the way ‘from last time’.
The challenge this time, 8 laps of 3 down-hills and 3 up-hills ... and it was tough! Just Steve and Rach came close to finishing the challenge this time with everyone putting in a hug effort with some very sore quads.
Coffees and a swim finished the Challenge morning before 9:30 and we were home again.
Congrats to everyone that took part, you all did great!
See you in the gym
