3 Free 2018 Fitness Tips from Partridge Street General Practice!

It’s 2018 and many of you will have made your New Year’s resolutions. Many of these resolutions will have been broken by January 15th! We’re past that date, so for those of you who are left, here are some free Fitness Tips to help you carry on and improve your health in 2018.

 

 

Number 3 Fitness Tip from Dr Nick Tellis and Partridge Street General Practice

Get to the Gym…or the Run…or the Swim

 

 

We’ve all had those days where we don’t really want to exercise. Abs may be made in the kitchen but they’re certainly not made in bed. Remove the obstacles. Have your gear out the night before – clothes, trainers, swimmers, headphones – whatever you need to Get It Done. Leap out of bed as the morning alarm sings, get your gear, and Get Out.

 

 

Once you’re at the gym or pool or about to start your run – Start! If you’re not feeling it after 5-10 minutes, stop and head home. That’s cool, it’s not your day. I can assure you following this tip will hugely increase the amount of exercise you do.

 

 

Get a great gym with Anytime Fitness Glenelg, just off Jetty Road, Glenelg!

Number 2 Fitness Tip from Dr Nick Tellis and Partridge Street General Practice

Don’t be the fittest person

 

 

Here’s the easiest tip here – especially for those of you just starting out. It’s often said that if you’re the smartest person in the room, you need to find a new room. Training with people fitter than you will bring you up with them. Generally people fitter than you have been doing it longer than you have and have built up some great habits and great tips of their own. Let them lift you up!

 

 

My personal take on this is that I train with people younger and fitter than me. I take the opportunity to train with great female athletes – even though I’m nearly double their weight, I can almost keep up! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

 

 

Get some great training partners!

 

 

Run with Good Physio or Aspire Pilates and Physiotherapy!

Number 1 Fitness Tip from Dr Nick Tellis and Partridge Street General Practice

Rack Your &%*%ing Weights!

 

 

You’ve got to the place of exercise and you’ve lifted/run/swam. It’s time. Time to put the little metaphorical cherry on that big beautiful exercise cake. Time for a little ‘accessory exercise’.

 

 

 

 

Rack your &%*%ing weights! Seriously! This is free exercise! You’ll feel better, your training buddies will love you, and your friendly gym owner will sing your praises (and maybe even put your picture up in the gym!). Routine will give you strength and is that extra 1% for you when motivation fails. Routine gets you to the gym. Routine gets your training partners to the gym. And the Routine of racking your weights is worth it’s weight in gold.

 

 

 

 

 

If you’re running or swimming instead of lifting – that’s cool too. Walk more. Walk to and from your run or swim. That incidental movement – briskly, to be truthful – adds up. It adds up to fitness. It adds up to cardiovascular health. It adds up to a little less weight around the middle. It Adds Up!

 

 

Get to Anytime Fitness Glenelg and hit Ryan up…and maybe rack a few weights ๐Ÿ˜‰

City to Bay 2016


What a day! I had a great run and I’m not going to even mention all the eating I did afterwards!

Huge congratulations to:

Dr Martin Davey from Rose Street General Practice who was the fastest GP from Glenelg – 57.31 – magnificent effort!

Martin – you Legend!

Dr Jennie Wright, for running a great time, but mostly for getting us all organised and setting up the fundraising for Zaidi Ya Dreams (donate here). 

Dr Lane Hinchcliffe for running the full 12kms after breaking his leg in 2015 (I won’t post his selfie here…I will release it for the right amount to charity ๐Ÿ˜‰)

To Bayside Family Musculoskeletal Practice and The Health Hub for the fastest male and female runners respectively!

And finally to the awesome team at Partridge Street General Practice who walked, cooked, prepared, fundraised, and supported our patients (and me!) for far more than 12kms in September!!

This week, we’re all back to work – and looking forward to bigger and better things to come in 2016 and beyond!

5 Things About Low Carb

On the 25th of June this year, I started a little experiment. I was a Guinea Pig. I felt my chubby cheeks and willingness to run around made me a good choice of test subject. 

Great teaching award, but work to be done!

I got some advice
I did some exercise.
I measured some things
I ran a little bit. 

Along the way I made some connections, raised a little money for charity, drank lots of coffee, worked hard, and had fun. 

Coffee and Website


What have I learned?


1. Exercise for mental health and to do things (walk up a hill, explore a new place, move furniture). Your basal metabolic rate goes down as you age and you tend to eat the same amount (or more) and your exercise is generally less vigorous. 

Exercise – sometimes it hurts!

2. Weight loss comes from your diet. Don’t kid yourselves. See 1. above. I’ve run faster before but with far more training. My time in this years City to Bay was based on weight loss not kilometres of training.

before
after

3. Sugar is addictive and unequivocally bad for you. Sugar crashes hurt. I have nothing good to say about sugar. 

Water – still best for you

4. Routine works. During the time I was watching my diet and trying to train, life tried to get in the way. If you don’t make time to train it won’t happen. No excuses. 

5. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. 
I had a ball working all of these things out, but my main passion in life is Partridge Street General Practice. If you’re thinking of seeing us as a patient or aspire to working here and being part of an awesome team, say hi right here!

Run Forrest, Run!

One more Sleep


Good luck to all the runners (and walkers)!

BOLT-ing along with LCHF in Week 7

Welcome to my latest update! My energy levels are good and I’m continuing to lean out as the home stretch begins. The training is going well. I’ve settled into a routine of three regular weights sessions a week, a couple of runs, lots of walking, and the occasional extra gym catch up. It sounds like a lot of work but what it really means is that I work hard, feel good, sleep well, and still have a social life.

good healthy food

I’ve got a month to go until #citytobay16 so I thought I would get over to Torrens Parkrun. Parkrun is a great initiative, run by volunteers, where you have a timed 5km run over a marked course. Perfect for ย measuring progress.

the course

Here’s one I prepared earlier:

24.19 for 5kms in 2014

I’ll reveal how I went – later in the week!

GOLD! LCHF Performance #carbexit week 6

When I was a child I played cricket in the backyard. Great times and great cricket – back in the day. ‘Autowickie’, ‘new bowler’, and ‘six and out’ were heard loudly and often. So was ‘eat your potatoes’! 

The Joy of Six

It’s the present day and both potatoes and ‘six and out’ are things of the past. Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) is here and my visceral fat is on the run. So am I. Half the deal was getting my weight down but the other half was getting my performance up. It’s six weeks in and I am not out. 

The Start

Keep watching to see how it goes. See where I’ve come from here:
