I believe that fitness equipment isn't just heavy weights that you lift in the gym. Your shoes can be fitness equipment too! Because the shoes you wear can either contribute to a decline in your overall health or enable optimised strength and mobility.

Stiff and heeled shoes can limit mobility in the feet and change global body geometry in such a way as to force joint complexes to function out of alignment. They can also mask the sensory ability of our feet; effectively numbing the neural networks that run from our soles to our brains.

Minimal shoes that are designed to let the foot function as closely to barefoot as possible foster better foot strength, mobility, whole body alignment, connection with the ground and neural engagement.

Visit this review of Xero Shoes barefoot sandals the Amuri Cloud and the dressier The Jessie sandal. Give them a go the next time you step out on the trail or the town.

I'm finally catching up to the triathlon world catching up to me.

If that doesn't make sense, it is because eons ago I longed for a multi-sport event that was just swimming and biking. I never ventured into the world of multi-sport because I ultimately did not believe that I could participate in an event that included running.

Well, apparently, USA triathlon snuck in an Aquabike years ago without telling me. What is Aquabike?

3 weeks before my 50th birthday, I participated in my first endurance event; the Rottnest Sufferfest Half Ironman Distance Aquabike.

I was driven to do it for many reasons, not directly because of my birthday but more for other reasons that I share in this post.

I secretly hate her.
The chick who kept leaving me in her wake last night.  The chick who probably grew up around the ocean. The one who dedicated herself to competitive training.  Who is fit and lean and looks like she’s got her health and fitness all together. The one who has youth on her side.  The chick with the great delts, back and arms. The one who is disciplined and consistently works towards her personal passion.  Who puts herself out there and goes for it. The chick who can be proud of her physical achievements.
The chick who puts a mirror right up in my face so I can reflect on my ego.
Truth is, I don’t really hate her as much as admire her.
I admire her for her speed
Her confidence
Her dedication
Her discipline
Her strength
Her tenacity
Her physical presence and
Her passion.
I admire her for refusing to accept “NO” as an answer and for making "IT" happen.
I admire "her" because I admire and value those qualities.
What I really secretly hate, are the criticisms that bubble and ooze out of my brain.  The creepy crawly thoughts of self doubt, the deprecating self talk and the unfair irrational comparisons that I draw between myself and “The Chick”.
The mean thoughts that say…
I’m not good enough.
I’ve wasted my life.
I’m too old to make a difference.
The ugly voice of fear and self doubt repeating it’s mantra…
Your body can’t do what you want.
You’re not tough enough.
It’s too late for you.
You’re too slow, too weak, too limited
You’ll make a fool of yourself.


“Who.Are.You.Kidding?”
Truth is,
I’m not kidding anyone, because I’m not hiding anything.
I’m putting myself out there and lifting my game.
Truth is,
I’ve had a great life and I’ve been making a difference in other people’s lives for a long time.
Truth is,
I am older than I used to be, but my body is strong and mobile and is capable of many things.   Plus, I have the knowledge to approach training and recovery much more wisely than my younger self.
Truth is,
I’ve pushed my limits and achieved acts of strength and bravery that even I’m stunned to think about.
I eat tough for breakfast!
Slow? Perhaps, but I get the job done.
Make a fool of myself?
WHO.THE.HELL.CARES?

While we spend time working on and improving our bodies, we need to also pay attention to nurturing the person.
As trainers, we need to keep that in mind for ourselves as well as our clients.
