Remove small annoyances: Over the next month, when you see minor hanging chads like this in your life, take a few minutes to do something about them.


Clear out your space: The end of the year is a wonderful time to get rid of all the physical clutter in your life. 


Clear up confusion: Most of us have situations in our lives that are murky. Find out, you’ll feel clearer, and you’ll have a better sense of what to do next.


Have important conversations:  Is there something you’ve been carrying around with you and not saying?


Ask for what you want:  This is related to the one above. When you’re having those tough conversations, don’t just complain


Stop procrastinating: The place to combat procrastination is in your self-talk.  Next time you think about doing something you’ve been putting off, notice what you say to yourself about it (I suspect it’s either I don’t have time to do that right now, or I can get to that later).


Reconnect: Almost everyone takes some time off at the end of the year. Create some little windows of quiet to enjoy those closest to you.


Do something good: Take a bit of time before the year is out to give of yourself – time, money, expertise, knowledge – to help someone else.


Think about your future: Start thinking about the year ahead: what you’d like to accomplish, learn and experience. It’s a great way to set yourself up for a wonderful year to come.

Nicci’s News

Hi everyone,
Only one more week until round 4 starts,I hope you are all ready for an epic round. I would love you to all set yourself a goal that you want to achieve during round 4. Make it challenging and let me know what it is when I see you.

The Ultimate8 challenge is starting soon and I’m looking forward to seeing some amazing results.

For me I have my Spartan Ultra happening down in Bright in November. It will be 50 kms+ and is a tough one to get through. My goal is to train hard eat amazing food and take the race on being strong in body and mind. Remember mindset is such a big part of achieving our goals so write it down focus on how you are going to achieve it and take the steps you need to to achieve it knowing that I am by your side.
Let’s make round 4 the biggest👊Nic



Fit Stuff Testimonial – Corinne Fitzpatrick

I had the awesome opportunity to join the Ultimate 8 challenge!  I was a little nervous at how I’d go.  It had been years since I had done something like this and old habits die hard! But with the friendship, support and energy from the trainers and other members, it helped me stay on track and improve. I lost a total of 5kgs and improved my run distance, so was very happy! Nate’s energy and enthusiasm is enough to motivate anyone!!    I loved how he focused on mindset! Would 100% recommend anyone to join and start their own journey of health and fitness.

Nutrition Tip – Eat foods that boost your immune system? 



Turmeric, sometimes called Indian saffron or the golden spice, is a tall plant that grows in Asia and Central America. The turmeric that we see on shelves and in spice cabinets is made of the ground roots of the plant. The bright yellow colour of processed turmeric has inspired many cultures to use it as a dye. Ground turmeric is also a major ingredient in curry powder. Capsules, teas, powders, and extracts are some of the turmeric products available commercially.

Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric, and it has powerful biological properties. Ayurvedic medicine, a traditional Indian system of treatment, recommends turmeric for a variety of health conditions. These include chronic pain and inflammation. Western medicine has begun to study turmeric as a pain reliever and healing agent.

It’s anti-inflammatory

The Arthritis Foundation cites several studies in which turmeric has reduced inflammation.

This anti-inflammatory ability might reduce the aggravation that people with arthritis feel in their joints.

The foundation suggests taking capsules of 400 to 600 milligrams (mg) of turmeric up to three times per day for inflammation relief.

Sweet Potato


Sweet potato is an important tuber crop grown in the tropics, sub-tropics and warm temperate regions of the world for its edible storage roots. The roots are used as a source of carbohydrate and dietary fibre. 

Dietary fibre has the potential to reduce the incidence of a variety of diseases in man including colon cancer, diabetes, heart diseases and digestive disturbances. The flesh colour of the root varies from various shades of white, cream, yellow to dark-orange depending upon the carotenoid content. In the orange-fleshed sweet potato the major carotenoid present is β-carotene.


Carotenoids have been linked with the enhancement of immune system and decreased risk of degenerative diseases such as cardiovascular problems, age-related macular degeneration and cataract formation. Sweet potato is also a rich source of provitamin A, vitamin B1 (Thiamine) and vitamin C.


Cheers Nate and Nicci
