Succeed Client – Everyday Hero

Sunday, August 7th, 2011

As most of you know I also had a little boy that I almost lost at birth just over a year ago.

We have one of our clients doing The Canberra Times Fun Run this year and will be dedicating her run to:

The Miracle Babies Foundation through everyday hero.

Our client Rosy, had an amazing little boy born at 25 weeks (he is now a very healthy 2 1/2 year old), here is what she had to say:

“As most of you know, my son Angus was born premature at 25 weeks and is now a healthy 2 ½ year old.  If it wasn’t for the care he received and the amazing medical equipment, I believe that he wouldn’t be here with us today. So for us, every day is a celebration of life. I have decided to celebrate both Angus’ life and my newly found healthier life by dedicating my run in the Canberra Times Fun Run to all premature and sick newborns and raising money for The Miracle Babies Foundation through everyday hero.” Rosy

“Since recommencing Boot Camp with Succeed in May 2010, I have gone on to improve my fitness and lose nearly 20kgs in the process. Putting it into a more visual perspective, when I first started, I was pushing a size 24 and yesterday I brought a dress, for the Succeed Charity Ball that was a size 16 ( very exciting moment). I would like to really thank the Succeed team for getting me into shape and starting off the fundraising with a very kind donation for me, thank you, Rosy”.

Do you want to be Sick Less Often?

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

The evidence is clear – regular exercise is good for you!

And not only is it good for you, but doing it regularly and consistently will have a positive effect on many areas of your life.  No more clearly can this be shown but in the workplace.

sick-personDo you want to get sick less often? Do you want more energy? Would you like to be more confident? Would you like to be able to handle stress better? Would you like to give yourself more opportunities for promotions?

Countless studies have proven that being fit and healthy will result in more energy, superior ability to focus clearly and more effective ways to manage stress levels. Now wouldn’t that make life a lot easier?

By improving yourself in these areas alone, you may be able to counter your weaknesses, and eliminate those factors that may be stopping you from getting that promotion, from gaining recognition and taking on more responsibility, from having the chance to earn a higher salary or improve your living standards!

Participation in a work-based exercise program can greatly increase job satisfaction and help to counter boredom and complacency. It can also encourage other positive health-related behaviour, such as quitting smoking or weight loss.

Exercise doesn’t need to be complicated – it just needs to be regular. The following are some examples of how exercising can be made easier:

– organise fellow staff members for lunch time sporting games – touch football, soccer, volleyball, cricket
– start a walking/running club at lunchtimes
– participate in a workplace fitness program
– join a local health club
– hire a Personal Trainer

Regular exercise, combined with sound dietary habits, WILL make a difference in many areas of your life, especially in a place where you spend a large chunk of your time – in the workplace!!

Bootcamp Questions

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

Do you need to be fit to attend a Bootcamp program?

No, that’s why you have come to us. The course has been designed to challenge all fitness levels, from ‘Couch Potatoes’ to elite athletes. At the commencement of each program you will be required to complete a Basic Fitness Assessment (BFA). Your Instructors will use the results of this BFA to separate the group into ‘Sections’, grouping together individuals of a similar fitness level.

What type of results can I expect from Bootcamp?

Bootcamp achieves significant improvements in the following areas in as early as two weeks:

  • Fat Loss
  • Muscle Tone
  • Muscular Endurance
  • Agility
  • Cardio-vascular Endurance
  • Muscular Strength
  • Speed

 What makes Succeed  Bootcamp different to other so called ‘Boot Camp’ programs?

Succeed Bootcamp is the ‘Real Deal’.

The secrets to Succeed Bootcamp success are simple:

  • We GUARANTEE results
  • You will achieve measurable results in the first 4 weeks
  • Every single session will challenge you, not only physically, but often mentally & emotionally
  • Bootcamp programs are periodised, meaning that every single session requires you to work harder than the last

 How much does Succeed Bootcamp cost?

Bootcamp program costs less than $15 per session or $35 per week.

This includes 12 – 36 physical training sessions (depends on the program), your Bootcamp  t-shirt, drink bottle, pre and post health screening and fitness testing.

Imagine achieving better results for less than a boring gym membership where you are on your own…

Also, return Bootcampers receive a discount on all additional courses.

Who instructs Succeed Bootcamp?

Bootcamp is Instructed by Australasia’s only fully qualified organization of ‘BOOTCAMP INSTRUCTORS’.

These Instructors undergo a rigorous training camp and assessment, administered by Motivate to Train Organisation under Fitness Australia regulations.

 What do I need to bring with me to Bootcamp?

When you enlist in Bootcamp you will receive your own Bootcamp t-shirt, which you are to wear to each and every session..

In addition, you will need to dress in comfortable running shorts or tights, and shoes

To each session you should bring the following:

  • A windcheater or jumper (to put on before you warm up, and after you have finished training)
  • A towel
  • A bottle of water. (Be sure to hydrate properly the day before you train, as it is too late to try and do it once you start the session)
  • Asthma puffer if required

 Once I commence a The Bootcamp program, can I receive a refund if I need to stop?

No refunds will be given after course commencement. To enquire about the possibility of putting your enlistment on hold, you should speak to one of the Succeed Directors.

Pre Bootcamp Routine

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

Welcome to Succeed Bootcamp!

 Before you embark on the 12 week program, there are a few procedures and pointers that will make the ‘transition period’ a little smoother and less of a shock to the system.

 Getting up early

 If your body is not accustomed to early rises, then this is generally the biggest adjustment you will have to make. After all, it has been said that “80% of success is just showing up!”.

 In the weeks preceding the start of Bootcamp, try getting up at 5.45 and doing some gentle exercise (see point below for more on this) – this will start to get your body accustomed to the early starts and activity levels.

 Remember, our brains (and therefore our bodies) operate on routine and habit – the sooner these habits can be created the better!

 Get Moving

 Just like the early starts, it is important that you commence (if you are not already doing regular exercise) some light activity over the next few weeks. This will help get your body into the habit of exercising and again make the ‘transition phase’ a lot easier.

 Light activity can include:

  • Walking
  • Light jog
  • Bike ride

 Fluid Intake

 It is vital that you replace the fluids that you lose whilst exercising. Like the two points above, drinking plenty of water is a habit that needs to be established if it is not already.

 Aim to drink at least one glass of water before leaving for Bootcamp, and always ensure that you have a full drink bottle with you. Consume water at every rest break you are given, and then aim to have another two glasses of water before you go to work.

 Should I eat breakfast before or after Bootcamp?

 Eating before exercising first thing in the morning is something that is different for everyone. Some people find they can’t function without some food in their stomach, whilst others find that they feel nauseous if they do eat.

 In the week leading up to Bootcamp, try both methods and work out what is best for you. When you do eat, choose light foods that will not sit heavily in your stomach, such as:

  • Yoghurt
  • Banana
  • Toast

 See how your body responds whilst you perform your exercise. Based on this, you will have a plan of attack for Bootcamp week 1!
