Learn the "art" of exercise. Anyone can run or lift weights, but the art is balancing everything so you do what your body needs, when it needs it. Ask yourself what you need from your work-out that day – does it need to feel challenging, do you need to be energised, are you trying to clear your head? Equally important is if you feel you don't want to go. Why is that? Do you genuinely need a rest or are you just being lazy? Using exercise in the way your body needs it each day is key to getting the right results.

Massage is an effective treatment for sports injuries and the maintenance of your body while training and playing.
Gympie, like most of Australia, is big on its sports!
We have huge participation levels (all ages and abilities) for soccer, hockey, rugby league, afl, netball, touch footy, basketball – did I miss anyone?
Of course, part of training and improving your ability in any physical activity is maintaining the wear and tear on your body. We have all experienced some form of discomfort from our sports - from the occasional niggle through to the season ending hamstring.
