Fitness Assessments in Kiama
It was great to see a packed house last Friday as we conducted our Monthly Fitness Assessment. Aerobic capacity, Muscular Strength & Endurance, Power and Flexibility tests were undertaken as well as the all important Girth Measurements. The good thing is we now have a baseline from which to measure. Follow up is the critical key though, to gauge where you have improved from one month to the next.
Now I’m sure everyone out there would like to lose at least a little body fat so pay close attention to the following statement:
Rather than now being so focussed on that Long Term Goal of losing 10kg by Xmas (Outcome) focus on the Short Term Goals over the next 4-6 weeks that are going to get you to where you want to be. These might include:
a) attending a minimum 5 Oxygen sessions per week
b) Stop skipping breakfast and instead start every day with protein & vegetables
c) focus on improving your aerobic capacity by taking your beep test from Level 5 – 6
Do you think it’s possible if you can tick off those three things in a month’s time you’ll be lighter, fitter and more motivated?
It’s important to note that just by writting your goals down and sharing them with someone you’re definitely ahead of most people who just wish for things. But, there’s still a lot of work to be done. When setting these goals and plans ask yourself, how committed am I to actually doing the work required? Kiama Personal Trainers can give you ALL the help you need to be successful but you have to want to do it for yourself.
Our attendance challenge continues to surge through Winter and drag many an Oxygen Boot Camp member along for the ride. Just as a quick reminder you get points the following ways:
- 1 pt for every Oxygen session attended.
- 2 pts IF you attend the randomly selected Double Points Session
- 1 pt if you Post directly on the Oxygen Health & Fitness – Kiama Facebook page by 9am Sat
By the end of Winter, there are prizes like Oxygen merchandise and Massage vouchers up for grabs. It’s just one way to keep everyone that extra bit motivated through Winter

What’s coming up?
Workout of the Month
Friday 12th July
6am Kiama High School
For those who are new to the concept, the Workout of the Month is a set STRENGTH workout which is different to all the other STRENGTH sessions during the week. It is always a full body workout done at high intensity and often only lasts for 5-15 minutes. Participants either have:
a) a set number of rounds to do as fast as possible
b) a set time limit to complete as many repetitions or rounds as possible
Each week times or scores are recorded so that when you come back the following Friday you have your own personal target to beat.
I want to re-enforce THREE messages about these workouts:
- Always ensure you use the best technique before worrying about speed of movement.
- You’re in competition against YOURSELF, nobody else.
- Rather than see Fridays as an effort to get up for such a short workout, view Fridays as a treat because Fridays are only a short workout! It’s hard, it’s fast but it’s over quick.

Whether you’re a seasoned Oxygen veteran or a Boot Camper who is new to the scene, I urge EVERYONE to take advantage of this valuable FREE service. Why?
If you’ve just started with us there’s a very high chance you don’t know exactly what’s required to move you forward towards your goals. It could be exercise related, nutrition improvements or both.
On the other hand, sometimes we all go through periods of our life where there is no real focus on fitness or nutrition. Sometimes it’s the “I’m just too busy at the moment, as long as I’m getting there 3 x week I’m happy.” Othertimes it’s “I already know what I need to do” or it may just be that you don’t have a goal and therefore whe n times get busy there’s no dricing force to get you out of bed on a cold winter morning.
Let me make this perfectly clear:
EVERYONE has a Goal.
NOONE puts themselves through the pain & discomfort of intense exercise for the sake of it.
Whether you admit to that or not, you have a goal. It may be:
Performance related ie I want to run a half marathon, do my first chin up, stop my knees from aching.
Body Composition related ie I want to lose 5kg, reduce my waist, build bigger biceps
Health ie I want more energy, to improve my nutrition because I have a family history of heart disease,
Even on the outside chance that you know exactly what you need to do, would it hurt to seek some free advice from a Team of experts that help people set these goals every day. Of course not.
To discuss your Goals and determine a clear path forward, we will help you set Short Term Goals and identify the Number ONE priority for the week ahead that will move you closer to your goal.
