SurfAid #MakeAWave 14 Day Update

I am proud to be an Ambassador for the SurfAid's #MakeAWave challenge. I had set out to be either surfing, kayaking, canoeing or swimming for 30 days in September however I'm based in Melbourne and current COVID restrictions have impacted this. For the first 7 days of the 30 day challenge I was either kayaking, training with waterfilled training equipment, getting creative or doing surf inspired workouts. Over the past week (days 8 - 14) I've been kayaking, taking out an old wave rider, training at home, and I even had a lay day. So far I've raised $186 towards my goal of raising over $1000 to help SurfAid deliver their programs. When you  support my fundraising  you give people in remote communities connected to us through surfing a hand up, rather than a handout.  SurfAid's geographical focus is on the heartlands of surfing where few visitors but surfers go, make their work unique.

PTPfit Turns 10

PTPfit

Today marks a decade of PTP, a proudly Australian-owned and operated company, producing high quality training and recovery products. As a member of the #PTPSquad to celebrate I've put together 10 of my favourite exercises that I perform as Tabata training. 

Tabata training is a high intensity interval training workout, featuring exercises that last for four minutes; 20 seconds on, 10 sec rest and repeat 8 times. It was discovered by the Japanese scientist Dr. Izumi Tabata and a group of researchers from the National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Tokyo.

  3. Squat Jumps/Split Jumps with the MicroBandX
  4. Seated Row with the MediBand
  5. Lateral Raise with the MediBand
  6. Bicep Curls with the MediBand
  7. Skipping on one leg and alternating each round with the Elite Rope
  8. Rollouts with the Ab Sculpt 
  9. Pendulum with the Core Ball

Please note: I'm not a PT and these are exercises that I have found to work for me and my own fitness goals. 

    How did PTP start?

    What is known today as PTP, first came into the Australian market with the Powertube Pro Resistance Training System. Designed with versatility and convenience in mind, this product was created to truly become a “gym in a bag” and offer a training solution to use anywhere and anytime.

    Shortly after its inception, in 2010, George Gregan, World Champion, World Record Holder and former Australian Wallabies Captain, joined forces, bringing his valuable long-time fitness experience and passion. Having pursued a successful international career as a rugby athlete in Australia, France and Japan, George contributed to develop the highest quality products that would make state of the art training accessible to all, via easy-to-follow workout programmes and instructional advice. From that point on, the brand continued to innovate and gained popularity for its great attention to design, functionality and accessible educational content.

    Today, PTP still strives to offer the latest fitness accessories and knowledge and, ultimately, become an integral part of every personal fitness journey, encompassing everything from pre-habilitation and rehabilitation, yoga and pilates, through to power training.
