I've just started working out and I'm so sore - please help!

Thursday, June 27, 2019 | By Rachael Archer
So often when we first start working out, in the day or two after exercise, we wonder why we thought it would be a good idea in the first place! We can feel sore - really sore - and everyday things like getting out of bed or sitting on the toilet can be a challenge. Well, I'm here to reassure you that the soreness is normal! In this week's video, I explain a couple of things:  ..

Stretches and gentle movements for a sore lower back

Thursday, February 14, 2019 | By Luke Archer
Sitting at a desk all day. Sitting on the couch at night. Spending lots of time driving. Rocking your baby to sleep. Hunching over our phones. All of these situations (plus so many more) can have an impact on our lower back. Tightness in our hip flexors, glutes and hamstrings often promote back pain because the muscles are pulling in ways they probably shouldn't b ..

Friday, February 01, 2019 | By Luke Archer
Reaching your health and fitness goals can seem well within reach when you're in your own environment. You know where to shop for food, you're familiar with your kitchen so cooking meals is a breeze, and you have a local gym where everyone knows your name and you know your way round the place.

Help! I'm so sore!

Wednesday, August 22, 2018 | By Luke Archer
"Luke, I'm so sore. I don't think I can train today." "Why am I so sore? I think I've injured myself!" These are just some of the comments I've heard from my clients in the days after their workouts recently, and I can totally relate to how they're feeling. I can often feel the effects of my workout long after the session is finished, too! Don't worry though; the pain c ..

Dangling from a rock - what it taught me

Thursday, July 19, 2018 | By Luke Archer
Once a quarter, we do a different social activity with our crew here at MP. We've learnt to surf, we've done stand-up paddleboarding, trampolining, and this month, we decided to go with rockclimbing. We went last Saturday and it was super fun! But, my goodness, it was hard work! I didn't realise until I was half way up the  ..

What motivates you?

Thursday, July 05, 2018 | By Luke Archer
I've worked with hundreds of clients over the past 8 years in the fitness industry. One thing is very clear to me - everybody is motivated differently! Some people are driven by a weight loss goal. Other people prefer to work towards an event, such as a fun run or a wedding. And others have a sporting related goal. In order to stay on track, we need to know what we ..
