Welcome to the final Oxygen Health & Fitness Weekly Wrap for Winter. I”ve been very impressed with the consistency shown by Oxygen clients over the coldest season of the year. At at time when most people go into hibernation, (described by Wikipedia as “a state of inactivity and metabolic depression“) the Oxygen crew have had consistently high attendances, improving their strength & conditioning and having a fun time doing it.
I’m looking forward to celebrating at our Winter Warrior Winner’s Breakfast tomorrow and getting stuck into some exciting new Spring programs starting next week. Read on for all the latest news and updates.

Winter Warrior Challenge winds up
Congrats go out to several Members who met their tallies in the last week! Leanne Williams, Geoff McIntyre & Joy Briggs all achieved the goals they set down way back on the 2nd June. I racked up 4 sessions this week from 2 x Spartans, 1 Conditioning and a Stretch session which means I’ve also joined the winners list hitting my personal tally of 77 sessions. Woohoo!
There’s a number of other Members who are only 1-2 sessions away from their goals and will be sweating it out over the next 24 hours to bring home the bacon (and eggs) for tomorrow’s Winners breakfast.
Super Saturday Strength Circuit
The variety continued for last week’s Super Saturday session, with Strength Training in Kiama High School. There were 6 different Superset stations with a tabata protocol of 20 sec work/10 sec rest and 8 sets in a row. TRX Pull Ups/Incline DB Presses, Box Jumps/Jump Lunges, Push Ups/Barbell Rows, Barbell Squats/DB Romanian Deadlifts, Med Ball Slams/DB Push Press and Diagonals/Med Ball Twists. Wow!
It was hard work and I was sore until Wednesday but the feedback from all attendees was very positive. It’s definitely something I like to program in because some great results can be achieved from getting that 3rd full body strength session in each week. Keep an eye out for more of these sessions over Spring.
Winter Strength programs complete
Our Spartan and FitChicks Strength programs wound up last night with the completion of our final 4 week strength & conditioning programs in Kiama. A number of performance targets were met as everyone kept inching their weights up in small increments each week. Along with the improvements in strength and performance, a number of people transferred those gains into some great physical improvements with Lorien Spooner-Hart losing an amazing 57cm in girth measurements and Geoff McInytre making muscle gains on the chest/arms and hips.

This week’s Member of the Week goes to long standing Member Kat Hayward. Kat has been a keen strength training participant since she first started at Oxygen a couple of years ago. She would always attend her boot camp Strength sessions as well as Boxing and the odd Stretch session. Kat has also been a valuable Member of our Nutrition coaching group helping herself and others to improve their eating habits for better results. Since she combined her nutrition habits with Fit Chicks Club Kiama and more recently Conditioning sessions, Kat has achieved some great results. She compiled an amazing 5 Performance Points this past week to take out our Member of the Week Award. Well done Kat!
