Beyond The Beers

BTB fb eventLooking after your health requires more than maintaining the physical body; we also need to ensure we’re looking after our mental health. Regardless of gender, age, cultural or socio-economic background, anyone may be affected by poor mental health at some stage in their life.

AGOGA Spartan Gauntlet

ASG

 

I’ll start with what I hope is an uncontentious statement; appropriate exercise is good for you! Agree? Good. But sometimes it’s easy to fall into the habit trap of exercising for exercising’s sake. Whether you’re stepping into AGOGA, having a run down at Bondi, or cranking out some bodyweight training in your hotel room while travelling (just to name a few examples), what if your exercise wasn’t just “exercise”? What if your exercise became training for specific goals? Now you’re moving with intention.
