AGOGIANS, it’s been a while between posts but the exciting news is we’re back and live! Just in time for World Health Day this Saturday (7th April) – watch our live chat with Libby and Nic talking about how staying active affects your overall health.
In this chat the guys cover:
What staying fit really means to your Agoga trainers
Why moving your body is so critical to keeping your energy up
The part a balanced program plays in managing your health
Why progression in your training is so important
The simple ABC principle you can use to stay on track
AGOGA training provides a platform for our everyday athletes to continually improve their athleticism. From running speed and vertical pressing, to pulling strength and hinge movement capabilities, there’s always room for improvement. From untrained newbies to renowned Olympians, we’re each on a journey to becoming the best version of ourselves. To help you along your health & fitness journey, your AGOGA coaches have prepared a set of speed and strength standards to serve as a reference point for your training. Here we go!
The term “endurance race” can strike fear into the hearts of even the most enthusiastic athlete. Whether it’s a half-marathon, Ironman triathlon or ultra marathon, endurance races challenge participants’ physical and mental stamina and resilience. This week, AGOGA’s very own Swedish endurance hero himself, Kalle Kortelainen, shares his experience running the incredible Shotover Moonlight Marathon. Whether you’re an endurance junkie or not, grab a cuppa, get comfortable and enjoy Kalle’s journey, insights and learnings which can help us tackle our everyday challenges. Over to you Kalle.
The Biggest Loser: Transformed kicks off at 7:30pm tonight on Channel TEN and I’ll be stepping on screen as the newest trainer on the series. I really hope you watch it and love the incredibly brave and authentic contestants just as much as I do. Before the show kicks off, I wanted to tell you why I was so passionate about saying a big YES to this daunting but exciting, life-changing adventure. Continue reading →
Whether you’re a weekend jogger, a budding marathon runner or simply looking to improve your technique on the treadmill, there are always simple changes that can dramatically improve your running form. Who doesn’t like some cheeky coaching advice?! We know you do, so AGOGA has brought in some international expertise to help boost your running by increasing your cadence.
Admit it Agogians; we know at some point you’ve dreamed of being on the Amazing Race, running around cities uncovering clues, tackling crazy challenges, and fighting to secure that winning podium position. Fortunately for you, AGOGA and BUF Girls have joined forces this November to bring you the greatest charity adventure…
There’s never a dull moment these days on Bondi Road! You’ve already read about our sweaty (in a great way) infrared sauna friends at Nimbus & Co, and now it’s time to meet Accredited Nutritionist Claire Barker from Whole Health Nutrition who’ll be practising from the beautiful Nimbus & Co wellness studio. Heads up – we’re talking about chocolate raspberry & hazelnut bark AND raw snickers bars in this blog… are you ready?
Ok athletes, I have some BIG news I’ve been bursting to tell you all about… I’m ridiculously excited to announce that I’m going to be stepping up alongside Shannan Ponton to take on the role of trainer on the completely revamped version of Channel TEN’s The Biggest Loser: Transformed!
AGOGA has a new neighbour, and if you’ve been into the studio lately there’s a good chance you’ve heard us raving about our new friends at Nimbus & Co. When you need to take a break, relax and recover from the distress that sometimes creeps into our lives (remember, we love eustress!), a great way to dedicate some time to you is by visiting a sauna. Luckily for the AGOGA community, partners Su and Neil have recently launched Nimbus & Co, a tranquil infrared sauna and wellness studio literally across the road from AGOGA.
