4 Steps To Weight Loss This Winter

1. Plan Ahead

You're more likely to reach your goals by planning your exercise/diet a week in advance. Use our free app to book all classes online. Using your smart phone or old fashioned journal, record everything that you eat/drink. Plan to eat 90% of meals that are home cooked. This will create awareness in a positive way.

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

2. Set Realisic Goals

It's more then likely you won't be losing 20 kilos in a month so make sure you set realistic/acheivable goals. It's healthy to lose 1% of your body weight per week. If you want to see faster results, ramp up your exercise by setting small goals.

3. Find Your Motivation

Why do you want to lose weight? How will it make you feel once you've lost the weight? What do you look forward to the most when you've lost your weight? How motivated are you on a scale of 1-10?

Write the answers down and post it on the fridge so you can see it everyday.

4. Measure Your Progress

Weekly weigh in on the same day each week, try on clothes once a month that were tight, take your measurements, and give yourself a fitness test monthly.

Tonia's Weight Loss Tip.....

You're more likely to overeat and comsume more calories dining out which will lead to weight gain, feeling bloated, trouble sleeping, and not training efficiantly.

Try eating a green apple (with the peel) and drinking a tall glass of water a half hour before you go out. The peel is full of fibre and will trick you into being full.

Check Out This GREAT Testimonial 

I came across Fitness Ring back in November 2012, I had struggled with keeping weight off and I was frustrated with the lack of results I was achieving at a conventional gym. I signed up for the 6 week bootcamp and have never looked back! I am now 18 kilos down and the change in body shape has been amazing. Meeting Nick and Tonia has been life changing, Nick's passion for boxing and fitness is very motivating and is backed up perfectly with Tonia's health and wellbeing knowledge. The gym is a lot of fun, provides a sense of family and really does suit all fitness levels. I am in the best shape of my life and feel like I can take on the world!

Boxing : the full-body power surge - The Age

Gone are the days when boxing was thought to be primarily a male domain. Now, more women than ever are lacing up their gloves and stepping into the ring – or at least hitting the heck out of a punch bag. After the inclusion of women's boxing in the London Olympics 110 years after it had featured previously, more and more women are taking up the sport. Whether you're facing off against an opponent, boxing pads or even utilising your legs in a kickboxing class, boxing is a great way to boost your mood, burn fat and build your self-confidence.   Read more...


Boxing : the full-body power surge - The Age 6th May 2013

Gone are the days when boxing was thought to be primarily a male domain. Now, more women than ever are lacing up their gloves and stepping into the ring – or at least hitting the heck out of a punch bag. After the inclusion of women's boxing in the London Olympics 110 years after it had featured previously, more and more women are taking up the sport. Whether you're facing off against an opponent, boxing pads or even utilising your legs in a kickboxing class, boxing is a great way to boost your mood, burn fat and build your self-confidence.

"Women are actually better boxers than men as they lead with their legs," says Matt Spooner, head coach at UFC Gym in Sydney, who also trains actor Leonardo DiCaprio. "Even a 60 kilogram woman can hit with a force of 40 kilograms," he says. "If a 90 kilogram man uses just his arms to box, he'll only achieve a force of around 10 kilograms. That's why women tend to be better boxers – they use their legs for power, whereas men rely on their arms."

A boxing class raises your metabolic rate for 48 hours after your training session. 

Power of the punch

Although boxing might seem to be just an upper-body exercise, it actually works your legs and core tremendously when the correct technique is used. "Boxing is especially good for toning and building strength and power in the chest, triceps, shoulders, midsection and the upper and lower back," says trainer Kris Etheridge, the owner of Kris Etheridge Fitness, a private training studio in Toorak, Victoria.

A typical class usually involves a 10-minute workout, followed by two three-minute rounds, followed by a short rest phase of 30 seconds to 60 seconds. "This sequence is usually repeated for the duration of the workout," Etheridge says.

And as women have found out, it's all about your technique, not necessarily strength, that makes them so good at boxing.

"Learning to box correctly is worth it," Spooner says. "Using your body correctly will ensure you're getting the most out of your workout and not wasting energy."

He suggests practising the following sequence to ensure your upper body isn't taking the brunt of a strike.

"Start from the ball of your foot, step forward and using your ankle, knee and hip you use your core to rotate and as you land on your foot, your punch should land on target. There should be very little effort required from your arm." By avoiding overuse of arm strength, you'll be able to avoid neck, shoulder and arm injuries.

Fighting fit

"Many athletes use boxing training to improve their power, strength and explosiveness, as well as to improve their anaerobic threshold," Etheridge says. "This is the rate at which their bodies can remove performance inhibitors such as lactic acid, allowing them to perform at a higher level for longer."

And if you're looking to melt fat, boxing is one of the highest calorie-burning exercises there is. "It uses all the muscles in the body," he says. "Plus it pushes your heart rate above what you could maintain for a sustained period of time, because you employ short rest periods to catch your breath briefly before pushing your heart rate back up." This process occurs for the entire duration of the exercise, allowing you to burn maximum calories, tone up and elevate your fitness.

The best news of all? "A boxing class raises your metabolic rate for 48 hours after your training session," Spooner says. Usually, your metabolic rate returns to near normal after ending aerobic exercise, such as walking or running. So that 680 calories you just burnt in an hour is just the start to a trimmer, more toned and stronger you.

Sure-fire hits
