People assume that because I live and breathe health and fitness I never make a mistake, or I never feel the urge to eat a hamburger with fries eat a piece of cheesecake and a have few glasses of red wine with friends or my family. And if someone happens to see me out at a function doing exactly this they will tend to give me a funny look as if to say you cannot eat that. The following question will usually be something like - "that's okay because you will probably go for a 15km run after this to burn off all the calories." While it is true I do not regularly eat junk food or over-eat sugary desserts, I do not avoid them altogether. And I definitely do not use exercise as a form of punishment to burn off the calories. The secret to staying in great shape and still being able to enjoy the finer things in life is CONSISTENCY! This means you must be consistent with your exercise, consistent with your nutrition, consistent with your sleep, and all the various other lifestyle factors that contribute to good health. The people who achieve great health and fitness results are not perfect all of the time and they do not try to be. They accept mistakes are a part of life and understand the secret to success is to aim for consistency.

The modern age of the internet and social media has made access to information extremely fast and easy enabling people to find answers to complex problems at the click of a few buttons. When it comes to injury and rehabilitation, the endless number of videos and articles on the internet has helped people find out how to treat their injury with exercises than ever before. While this sounds like a great progression, and at times it can be, it has also created a new set of problems and a new breed of people who over-analyse and self-diagnose problems based on information that they do not understand. You Tube has been good to me over the years and put me in touch with so many people around the world, but I find I am constantly having to reply to questions about how to use my information correctly and keep it in context of how it was intended to be used. Often I end up making additional videos to explain the things I left out of the original video. Personally I will always prefer a book or a long drawn out article with links to additional information over a video any day, as a book has a series of chapters you must read in order to understand how the author came to their conclusions. In this article, I will explain how videos can help you as long as you understand their place within the corrective exercise journey.

When most people think of agility training the first image that pops into their head is some sporting athletes jumping over hurdles and running in speed ladders. While agility is a great training method for sports, it is so much more than that and a very under-valued training method that can provide incredible skills to our body. Far too many people avoid using agility exercises for they lack coordination and have never been great at sports. Their fear of looking silly and making a mess of the exercise makes them avoid using this method which is unfortunate for they miss out on the amazing benefits they provide. What you will find out in this article is how valuable this type of training can be to people of all ages and abilities for improving how they move.
