12 time saving ideas for exercise

Saving time can help you achieve your fitness goals! With these 12 time saving ideas for exercise, you can now fit exercise into your life every day and be more organised.  1. Prepare meals in advance or have some back up left over meals in your freezer. Get the whole family involved in meal preparation and make it fun. 2. Do a weekly or fortnightly shop, not shop daily. This enables meal planning, and also can reduce the budget as you are not impulse buying. 3. Do your grocery shopping online and take advantage of free home delivery days. Also pre order your veggies through a bulk co-op/local farmers or online option, most of these options have home delivery also. 4. Give the children specific daily jobs at home. Then every one has their jobs to do each day making the jobs around the house shared and quicker, giving you all more time to do other things. 5. Make a family weekly roster.

Get Moving with Doggy Moves!!

  If you love your four-legged friend as much as I do you will love my exciting new and unique Doggy Moves© exercise class I have developed. Doggy Moves has been created for you and your best friend – to get you and your pooch moving with a combination of human and dog exercise moves, plus dog training. Doggy Moves is a first in Australia, and I am thrilled to offer it here on our glorious Sunshine Coast. I am a qualified and register personal trainer and I previously owned a pet business in Brisbane. I have been involved in dog obedience, training and competitions for over seven years with my beloved border collie. Being a border collie and living in Brisbane my dog needed mental exercise as well as physical exercise. We went to dog school initially for dog obedience training when she was a puppy. We made many great human and dog friends and took our training over seven years to an advance level in agility, fly ball, competitions, and expos at schools, pet expo and shopping centres – our group was even approached by Movie World! We both loved it. My beautiful girl has since retired and is living her senior years quietly with her fellow fury friends. I have been brewing away with my Doggy Moves idea for some years now – as I had always planned to do my personal training qualification – passionate about living an active and healthy lifestyle – after a career change from being a corporate business and marketing professional. My dog and I use to do a lot of other...
