Another year is upon us, and we are wondering ‘where the hell has 2014 gone!’ More importantly, ‘am I going to stick to my New Year’s resolutions?’ If you are pondering this question, then here are a few things to help you get your New Year Glow on!
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
The popularity of high intensity interval training is on the rise. This type of training involves repeated bouts of high intensity effort followed by varied recovery times.
F45 Training is the new craze in HIIT training to hit our shores, developed by celebrity PT Luke Istomin, who has sculpted some of the world’s most svelte A-listers such as: Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, Baz Luhrmann, Kate Walsh, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Joel Madden, Ricky Martin and Carey Mulligan.
F45 Training has over 72 locations worldwide and the very first Qld F45’s are now open in West End Brisbane, Mooloolaba and Qld State of Origin player Nate Myles has the Burleigh F45 training facility.
We all know the benefits of supplementing vitamin C in our diet. Did you know Vitamin C is critical for your body and plays an important role in maintaining healthy, resilient skin? While young skin is full of vitamin C, aging skin naturally loses this nutrient over time. Other factors like exposure to UV light, pollutants and cigarette smoke compound the decline of vitamin C, contributing to signs of aging. The good news is that you can fight back by replenishing your skin’s vitamin C levels to help to combat and even reverse time’s effect on your face.
Laser Hair Removal
Ok, if I’m going to give you one good tip as an addition to your grooming regime, it’s going to be laser hair removal. The technology around laser hair removal has by far superceded the old IPL days where it felt like a rubber band flicking you on the neither regions. Medical grade lasers provide superfast and painless hair removal. Remember to shave down prior to your treatment and in most cases it will take 3 – 5 sessions to get a complete result.
At the end of the day we can have great looking skin and be on top of our exercise game but there is only one real answer to get rid of wrinkles…. Botox!! Last week I had a tiler working on one of my Brisbane clinics, he was so interested in softening a deep wrinkle that ran vertically between his eyes. He complained of always looking angry. So a contra deal was agreed upon, tradie was treated and I sent a happy tradesmen home. Four days later the solid line had softened to a light wrinkle that was only visible when he frowned hard. Botox is just as common for men as it is for women and the amount of men getting basic cosmetic treatments is on an all-time high.
