Exercise intensity refers to how much energy is expended during exercise. It is the amount of physical power, expressed by the maximal oxygen consumption, which the body uses when performing an activity.
Mum, Dad and I have been “partners in exercise crime” for as long as I can remember. My brother and I grew up in a highly active family structure, lots of outdoor activities and sports.
Goals give you direction, they keep you focused and motivated and increase your chances of achieving things. If there is something in life you really want but are struggling to achieve, then setting yourself a goal is a great way to make it happen.
In our day to day lives we need both cardiovascular exercise and some form of resistance training. The combination of both leads to a well-balanced exercise plan.

I had been overweight and unfit my entire life and after a bad pregnancy with my daughter and peaking at 110kg 3 months after she was born I decided I had to do something about it. Over the ensuing 2 years I lost 40ish kg and part of this regime I took up running (more like shuffling) for the first time in my life. I entered the Mothers Day Classic 4km and was strangely hooked. So I decided this was a good way to keep the weight off, keep entering myself in fun runs and I had no choice but to keep running. But I wasn’t very good at it and it was really lonely going off to all these events by myself. I was losing my enthusiasm when one of my girlfriends got the MBM Running Clinic flyer in her mailbox and gave it to me and I have never looked back.
Our recipe of the month is brought to you by Belinda, Beth and Giz who are three of our lovely personal training clients in West Pennant Hills.
