Fitness Secrets

It’s not a secret that some of the most handsome men and prettiest ladies come from Australia, just take Chris Hemsworth and Nicole Kidman for example. Yes, some of us want so desperately to be handsome as Aussies, so we try whatever we can to mimic their lifestyle and routines, hoping that this will bring us abs, beautiful eyes and sun-kissed skin. Australians are also known to exercise a lot, so that’s probably where you need to start. They have their own fitness secrets, so what we did is tried to reveal you this secret. What can you do in order to train like an Australian?

Massage is not unimportant

One of the things that we always consider as unimportant, but is actually quite recommended, is a good sports massage. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be a professional athlete to enjoy the perks of a good Melbourne sports massage. It’s always recommended to opt for one before or after the training session, as its goal is to make your muscles relaxed so that they could progress in a much better way. Sports massages are completely different than relaxation massages that we always opt for – they include faster strokes and use a variety of different massage techniques, such as deep tissue combined with trigger point therapy. However, it’s only the relaxation that’s important here, but preventing and treating injuries and enhancing athletic performance as well.

Consider dietary supplements

Unless you’re a fitness junkie and know exactly what and when to eat, then you probably need some extra health. It’s very important to have your proper intake of vitamins, protein and carbs during the day, and we forget about it more often than not. Opting for good supplements is the right way to go, but make sure to choose high-quality products that will eventually help you, as there are many fakes on the market. For example, you can’t go wrong by picking a trustworthy line of products like San supplements which have been helping athletes increase muscle mass, decrease body fat and improve athletic performance since 1996. Make sure to talk to a professional (such as an athlete or a personal trainer) about how often you should be taking them – this greatly depends on the final result you want to accomplish.

Fitness is not a chore

If you’re not from Australia, then there’s a high chance that you see fitness as a chore. However, exercise is a basic part of the Aussie lifestyle, so make sure not to think of going to the gym as just another chore that you have to tick off from your daily to-do list. Most importantly, going to the gym is not the only form of exercise – you can go running, trekking, or if you live near the cost – going for a swim. Speaking of that…

Be active – always

As already mentioned, going to the gym is not the only form of exercise, and regardless of which one you go with, make sure to always be active. What does that mean? If you work on the fifth floor, always take the stairs instead of the elevator – it’s healthier and will do wonders for your body. Also, make sure you walk a lot, so it would be quite advisable to choose to walk to work a couple of times a week, but also spend your weekends walking around your town or city. Not only will you be breathing some fresh air, but you will be burning those calories on the go!

The early bird gets the worm

This phrase is pretty much a religion in Australia, as the majority of the people there get up very early in order to finish their daily workout. It’s always better to train in the morning – not only did you rest during the night (so it’s easier for you to work out in the morning), but it’s also a great way to completely wake up for your working day. If you take a walk in the morning in any Australian city, you will see hundreds of people going out for their morning run along the beach. Moreover, pumping your blood in the morning is a great thing for your metabolism.

Exercising might be only one of the factors why Australian are so handsome, but it’s always good to start from it. Make sure to follow these tips and you will see results in no time!

Benefits of sports massage for active men

We all experience stress, and it comes from many areas of life. We live in a world where the pace of living is 24/7.  As human beings, our inability to switch off and relax is either caused by society, internal stress and anxieties or those placed upon us by a hectic work schedule or by all of these things. 

Not that long ago, therapeutic massage wasn’t all that popular among men. These days men are paying much more attention to both their mental and physical health and realising the benefits and taking advantage of regular massage sessions. Whether you are dealing with a sports injury, have general soreness from being active or you are carrying a lot of stress, a therapeutic massage can help heal your mind and body.
