Fitness Motivation

Out of bed and into the gym: three ways to regain fitness motivation this spring Winter isn’t just hibernation season for bears… as the weather cools down, we tend to neglect our fitness goals and routines, trading them in for extra episodes of our favourite Netflix series, or the warmth of our beds when that morning alarm goes off. Spring is here and there’s no better time to regain fitness motivation, get back into routine and start building momentum to smash those summer fitness goals. Here’s our top tips to regain motivation after winter, and get back into the swing of things. Group Fitness Classes Consistency is key when it comes to achieving fitness goals, and the best way to ensure consistency is to work out with a friend! Having an ‘accountability buddy’ is a great motivator to get you working out regularly and forming good habits. Attend a group fitness class with your accountability buddy (or buddies!) to experience a challenging workout in a fun atmosphere. Another benefit of group fitness is the convenience of never having to plan your workouts, which can often be an inconvenience, leading to skipping or avoiding the gym. At Sanctuary Cove Country Club, there are over 35 classes per week to choose from, with options for all fitness levels so you are spoilt for choice! Click here to view class descriptions and timetables, and find a class that suits you best. Personal Trainer If you are ready to take it one step further, enlist the ultimate accountability buddy… a personal trainer. Not only will a PT keep you in check and ensure you attend every workout, they can provide you with foundational exercises that are tailored to your specific needs and goals. All the trainers at Sanctuary Cove Country Club are highly qualified and accredited, specialising in different training styles and client outcomes. Our PTs can teach you how to exercise safely and use the correct technique, so you can get the most out of your workout and achieve your goals quicker. InBody Scan Regardless of whether you decide to workout with friends or assign a personal trainer, define your baseline with an InBody Scan. The InBody body composition analyser measures over 40 parameters in the body, including muscle mass, body fat and visceral fat levels. In just a few minutes, determine your current body composition so you can set relevant and achievable goals, and discuss how to achieve them with one of our trained professionals. It’s recommended to have an InBody Scan every 6-8 weeks, to track your progress and adjust your workouts and goals accordingly. If you are ready to regain your fitness motivation and put our top tips into practice please contact reception on 5699 9070 or email [email protected]

One Member’s Weight Loss Journey – Week 2

Matt has teamed up with the Country Club’s Manager, Ryan Fishburn to turnaround his health through a lifestyle program that combines exercise with a healthy eating plan [read previous post here]. To start Ryan increased daily activity and weight training. This included walking or surfing each morning, a one-hour cardio and weight training session three times per week, and an intense PT session twice a week. From a diet perspective Matt eliminated processed foods, sugar, food colouring and flavouring and commenced intermittent fasting, whereby Matt eats his first meal at 11am and next meal at 6pm. In two weeks Matt has lost 5.7kg, 3.5% body fat and dropped 3 points in visceral fat. Ryan said these initial results were outstanding. “Matt has shown that he is following all disciplines of the plan, by just not training well but also eating less and making healthier choices,” he said. Matt is also pleased with his results, although hesitant in maintaining his new healthy habits. From a workout perspective, Matt’s body is hurting a little more than before as he works harder under Ryan’s guidance. The training sessions work different muscles that have not previously seen much attention. The biggest surprise for Matt is how instrumental diet and food is to his weight loss program. While the hardest part is eliminating carbohydrates (formerly a daily food source for Matt), the easiest part has been intermittent fasting. Normally Matt’s morning routine would be to wake up, shower and breakfast, followed by an early lunch at 11.30am. However, the day now starts with a surf, shower and coffee before starting a morning workout with Ryan. At 1pm Matt reaches for a protein shake which keeps him going through until dinner. This last meal of the day avoids carbohydrates and includes vegetables and protein. Matt has also forgone his daily beer. Ryan plans to continue the current schedule with Matt for the next fortnight and review after this. The workout will vary with different exercise sets, reps and rest times. The diet will continue to focus on whole foods and intermittent fasting, the only difference will be changing the protein shake on some days to meals such as omelettes or salads. In two weeks Matt will be one month into his challenge and undergo his second body scan to review body fat and weight loss results. If you wish to find out more about these programs please contact reception on 5699 9070 or email [email protected]

One Member’s Weight Loss Journey

Everyone has their own health and fitness journey and start them for a myriad of reasons. They could be small or large weight loss goals, the desire to be fitter with higher energy levels or just to eat healthier meals. One Sanctuary Cove Country Club member is about to undertake a life changing 12-week challenge. Matt Rippin is the General Manager of the InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort; he is a husband and father of two that due to his hospitality background took the opportunity to indulge in fine wine and food.   After years of doctors’ advice to lose weight, it took the loss of Matt’s father to finally realise life is short. His father was a great man and role model that Matt misses dearly. He now wants to ensure he shares a long, well lived life with his family and to be a great role model for his children. Matt will team up with the Country Club’s Manager, Ryan Fishburn to turnaround his health through a lifestyle program that combines exercise with a healthy eating plan. Matt is 46 years old and weighs 114kg, a far heavier version of himself when he met his wife Kerry 16 years ago weighing just 85kg. His goal is to lose 10-15 kg before Summer (and keep it off!), and will allow him to say sayonara to  the dad bod look! There are many health issues associated with being overweight including unnecessary stress on your vital organs, low energy, Type Two diabetes, sleep apnea, heart disease, stroke, fatty liver disease. Another issue is Body dissatisfaction not being happy with your body, avoiding situations where you may have to be in your swimmers. Matt has always been active through surfing and indoor and outdoor cycling but his temptation and desire for carbohydrates, sugar and alcohol has seen the weight stack on.  After assessing Matt’s fitness levels, goals and review any medical conditions, Ryan’s plan is to facilitate a complete health and fitness program. This includes a daily training schedule with a variety of fitness activities, a health plan that includes diet recommendations, hydration, intermittent fasting and other lifestyle factors such as sleep. As a start to Matt’s health and fitness journey, Ryan has increased daily activity and weight training. This includes walking or surfing each morning, a one-hour cardio and weight training session three times per week, and an intense PT session twice a week. This additional training and movement will dramatically increase the calories that Matt will burn per week. From a diet perspective Matt will immediately eliminate processed foods, added sugar, food colouring and flavouring. Ryan has advised to increase wholefoods, quality protein and fats and to start intermittent fasting, whereby Matt will eat his first meal at 11am and next meal at 6pm.  A combination of increased movement, better food choices and improving his lifestyle factors Matt is being set up to achieve his goals within 12 weeks. Matt’s journey will be followed and covered throughout the 12 week period to [...]
