Beginning to feel and killing 2 birds…

Walking through the city centre today it is hard to miss the amount of Christmas decorations and the shops ramping up their prep for Christmas. While it’s still early the entertainment is good from seeing the excitement starting to build. One example of this...

What a difference an “E” makes

Last week a young girl came along to CFC with her dad while he had a PT session (let’s call her Sophie). Not a big deal there you might think, except that she has a syndrome which basically messes up her appetite, meaning she is constantly hungry – while also wrecking...

Sweating the Small Stuff…

It has been a fairly hectic period in the Christchurch Fitness Centre recently. So much so that one day recently a matching pair of socks was a luxury that I hadn’t planned for. Obviously one of the gym members spotted this and commented about my “nice socks” – best...

Forgetting where I was and holding onto hope…

Last week I played in a soccer match and it was my first one in years. At one stage someone lined up a pass for me which was perfect for a volley I went for it and connected as well as I could. It flew into the roof of the net. But instead of wheeling away in...
