Sydney’s fun-run season is in full swing and this week we’ve got AGOGA’s running guru, Vee, guiding you through your running with some of her best training, nutrition and hydration advice! Although we’ll focus on getting you ready for the City2Surf and the Blackmores Running Festival, you can definitely use this advice for any running events or personal goals. Over to you Vee.
I am completely obsessed with getting off the beaten track and into nature, so this blog is a little hit of inspiration based on some of the adventures I’ve taken, plus some I’d really like to. Just in case March has you feeling in need of a hit of wanderlust. Do yourself a favour and Google every one of these to check out some breathtaking images!
If we told you a simple shift in your approach to training could get you better results more quickly, help you burn more fat every time you hit the gym, prevent injury and make you appear more attractive to the opposite sex, you’d do it right? Continue reading →
Do you train just to look good? Or is moving effectively and feeling great for the long-term just as important to you? Of course we all want to look good, but rather than training just to get a six-pack and a perky derrière, we like to keep fit and healthy so we can stay active and happy throughout all stages of life. So what exactly defines functional training for a healthy person who wants to look good and feel great?
We haven’t talked much about mindset on the AGOGA blog before so I wanted to talk about happiness. Happiness is not a life goal or a purpose of living; it’s our attitude towards life, a way of living.

Winter finally really arrived in Bondi this week and it’s so freezing that drinking litres of water is not a very appealing idea. All you want is hot coffee and tea all day long, then red wine at night, right?
Obstacle racing is the New Age ‘fun run’, the ultimate fitness activity of this decade. Kinda resembling a video game, these races allow you to escape the city life and feel like a gladiator, soldier or pro athlete for a day.
At AGOGA we tend to talk about lot about how to get leaner but over the past few weeks I’ve been teaching a lot of Stronger classes and I’ve realised that just as many of you want to know about how to get bigger. Let me start by saying that the right nutrition is always a critical part of the equation and getting bigger is no different. If you get it wrong you won’t get results no matter how hard you train.
Most athletes know the feeling. Frustration at spending hard-earned savings on scans and physio treatments, when you’d much rather be snapping up new running shoes, sports gadgets and high-tech fashion. Doom-and-gloom when you have to say no to training with friends, or heading off on active weekend adventures. The green-eyed monster showing up when you have to forfeit your event tickets again!
