It's Coming, it's coming!

Lots of good things are coming my way in the next few weeks.

Firstly, my move back to Brisbane!

Secondly, I have nearly finished building my own website. I have decided to import high quality advanced fitness DVDs into Australia, including Cathe Friedrich. As far as I am aware, I am the sole Australian distributor for her product. I "met" Cathe online in her Pregnancy forum when we were both pregnant with our second children five years ago. I bought her "Intensity Series" back in 2002 and was so impressed with the quality and versatility of the workouts, I have never looked back. I used the DVDs post partum for those times when I couldn't go to the gym and over the years I have used a lot of Cathe's lower body DVDs in my Figure Prep for my leg training. The weight training DVDs have been excellent to use whilst I don't have any gym access and very effective. I am hoping to have the site operational by the end of the week and I will post details here.

I will also be offering online training and lifestyle coaching, including preparation for sporting events such as marathon, triathlon, cycling events and of course Figure conditioning and preparation.

I'm quite excited to be starting this project. I know I have mentioned a while back my desire to be involved more in the coaching and preparation side of things, rather than competing and this is the perfect platform for me.

Today's workout was a 65 minute walk and Cathe's LowMax. This is a low impact high intensity step workout with leg drills. I used the leg drills (blasts) when training my legs for the Qld Titles last year.

Anyway I must go and get ready for lunch, the girls are having their friends around and I have to go and make some sandwiches. Later!

Can't wait to see the website! Might even get me some of those Cathe DVDs. Maybe. Um.

Hi Liz - that is great news. It is awesome that you have found a nice little niche market with the DVD's. There aren't enough quality DVD's on the market!
Great news about Brissy as well. I won't be able to come to RPM anymore though because I'm not a member at FF anymore. Got too expensive!

Hi Liz,

all the best for your new ventures. I'm sure you'll do really well.

Ooooh, Liz, how exciting! Will your clientele be limited to those competing? What about those of us who just want to look like we do?? :-)

Marie - no I am happy to work with anyone who is interested in looking and feeling better.

Good luck with the new business. I think it takes a lot of guts to start a new business & do something you love so you should be congratulated for giving it a go. I'm sure it will be a fantastic success.
