Welcome to the first Oxygen Health & Fitness Weekly Wrap for Spring. Its a new Season of strength & conditioning programs here at Oxygen Kiama as we gear up for some big events in the final quarter of 2014. There’s some great challenges ahead of us and the only way to prepare for them is to put in some hard yards, something which the Oxygen crew are not afraid of.
Read on for all the latest news and updates.

Winter Warrior Winner’s Breakfast
The 13 Week Winter Warrior Challenge finished up last Saturday with a chilly Surf Beach session and a much warmer Breakfast at The Brooding Italian. Congratulations to Leanne Williams, Geoff McIntyre, Joy Briggs, Megan Casey and Jade Braun who all achieved their targets and posted their updates each week.
The concept of this challenge serves a valuable reminder on the importance of Process v Outcome Goals. Nearly everyone has an outcome goal they would like to achieve from training (ie lose 5kg or shape up arms etc) but these things are usually long term, down the track type goals. Whilst a worthy goal, and certainly a step further than many people that don’t set goals at all, what you also want to focus on is the process of getting there and the things you can control along the way.
Consistent exercise is a key factor in long term success and the Winter Warrior Challenge keeps you accountable to a challenging but achievable exercise target. Read on for a new challenge starting next week that also addresses your nutrition…
New Programs begin
I’m very pleased to announce this week’s Member of the Week goes to Rachel Braun. Rach will admit she has been a little MIA through Winter, fighting long work hours that often see her miss both the 6am and 6pm sessions. She has also had hockey training commitments and probably the odd dose of the Winter blues.
However, she has hit back with a vengeance this past week pipping four other Members in a very closely contested week of Performance Points. Anyone who has worked alongside Rach at Super Saturday, FitChicks or Conditioning this past week will know she makes a great training partner. Well done Rach keep it up now!
