“Good health begins with the right mindset. That’s the one approach that has always remained with me throughout my career. And sure, working hard when training is important, but it’s also vital to never over-train or work yourself beyond your limits – that’s just not healthy.
“While training is a big part of getting fit and maintaining good health, we shouldn’t forget other key essentials such as a good balanced diet, adequate hydration, getting plenty of rest and avoiding stress.
“If you think healthy, you’ll start acting that way and a better, fitter and happier you is suddenly within reach.”
“I love the idea of communities coming together to get fit. It not only benefits our health, it’s also a fantastic way to socialise.
“I’m proud to have worked alongside local communities in Manly to beat the World Record for the Biggest Fitness Circuit – a sensational event we recently held on Manly beach with help from our friends at Bupa, raising much needed funds for the Bear Cottage charity.
