Best shoes and socks for winter

If you’re a trail runner in Auckland, you’ll know tracks in winter get super wet and muddy. Most of the time when the tracks are dry, you don’t need to pay as much attention to what you put on your feet.

Having the right socks and shoes will make all the difference to your performance – and your feet will thank you too.

Having fun

There has never been a time in human history where our species has lived the way we live in today's digital society.

And although advances in technology have been of huge benefit to the way we live, there are no shortage of obstacles. Unfortunately, at times, we pack our days full with things that negatively impact our ability to deal with stress, and ultimately affect how happy we are.

Chopper Challenge

There’s nothing like a good obstacle course race to get the adrenaline pumping – rope climbs, army crawls, sticky mud – it’s all part of the fun.

But this next adventure is something a little special and different. 

Time for a change

For your health & fitness to be different, you need to take action!

One of the most common barriers for people wanting to create change with their health & fitness is expecting their circumstances to change instead of creating change for themselves.

Matakana X Race

A couple of weekends ago, I competed in my first obstacle course race (OCR) for the year with my friend Scotty. It’s a race we’ve competed in annually for a couple of years called Matakana X Race. Before Tough Mudder & Spartan made it to New Zealand, it was really one of the only quality OCR race’s in the North Island.

Meal Preparation

Preparation is one of the best habits you can create when it comes to changing or improving your body shape and performance, particularly with your food.

You might start the week off with the best of intentions but allow ‘life’ to interfere.
