Hey Everyone,

They should be here in less than a few weeks and depending on Customs etc the price will be $8-$9 for a drink bottle and bag.

Just a really big thankyou to everyone who came along and supported both JDRF and Edge Fitness on Sunday. It was our most successful event yet and combined with the years events we have raised $1645 for JDRF with some more cash and a few more donations to go in.

A big congratulations to everyone who ran and walked particuarly for the first time. I will be putting up the results and the handicaps for next year up in the next week or so.

Also there will be some photos and the video of the Jelly Baby falling of the stage in the event warmup and getting up to gangnam style.

Thankyou from Everyone at Edge Fitness and we hope you enjoyed the day.

Well done Corbyn!

Post City to Surf Bowling

For anyone who would like to come along to a bit of an Edge Fitness Social Night Out then come along to Bowling at AMF Morley this Sunday.

This is a great chance to discuss your race stories and triumphs. Or even if you didn’t partake in the race come along to join in the fun and still have a great night out and maybe gain some motivation for next year’s event.

Not only should this be a bit of fun but have the rare chance to see some of your trainers and other Edge Fitness Members in regular non exercise ...
clothes.

Friends and family are welcomed and encouraged. I have several lanes booked but if you do plan on coming any notice would be great so I can book more if required. (Though just turning up is more than acceptable)
The centre is located at 176 Walter Rd in Morley and we will be there from 7pm.
More details on the centre can be found on the following page.
http://www.amfbowling.com.au/Centres/WA/AMF-Morley.aspx

EDGE HOODIES

Hey Everyone,

Ok at long last our hoodies have been re ordered and they should be in on the 30th of April - ok we know the date is unlikely but atleast they should be on their way. It looks like they now have the right coloured fabrics and things should be better this time around, I am told.

Fingers crossed but good news either way.

One of my business partners and I have organised for Grant Abbott to come over from the east to present this evening on Self Managed Super Funds. Don’t go to sleep!!!! It is a very powerful independent financial and tax planning tool when used properly. Grant is a great speaker so the evening will be fast moving.

It is not a plug for products but a good info night. Sondergaard Chartered Accountants will be organising on the night. We all have Super and I know most people are not happy with the results they achieve in big funds. This is all about controlling your money. Anyway there is my plug!

If anyone is interested in attending please call and let me know so we can plan for numbers.

Regards

Hey Team Edge,

What a great weekend. Thanks to everyone who came down to run, support and help out with the walk for JDRF. It was a really great morning with perfect weather for the race.

Congratulations to Brenda Coutts for taking out the inaugural trophy coming of a 6 minute stagger. It was a very close top three with Andrew Smith coming of 13 minutes to place second and Pamela Souris starting of scratch to take out 3rd.

 Congratulations Brenda!


21-10-11

Hey Everyone,

I hope you have been training hard and are excited and ready for the weekend and the big one - the JDRF Run for a Cure. We are all ready and looking forward to having you down for a great fun filled morning.

Also we have introduced a trophy for this years winner and are looking forward to seeing the result on the day. - As there is a stagered start the winner could be anyone who has posted a previous JDRF time. If you run this year you will also qualify for the race next year.

Seeyou all there.

Hey Team Edge Fitness,

I hope you had a fantastic weekend, that you all got out for a run - JDRF is just around the corner - oh and just generally had a great time.

For many of you, you are just starting to use this page - keep checking it - it will keep getting busier and busier.

Corbyn has also nominated to start doing a training blog, so these will start to pop up soon. Again if you are keen we would love a few members to test out this concept so just let me know.

Also just a quick one in regards to the JDRF Run – rather than bring money down on the day – if you register as part of team Edge Fitness on the JDRF page and put on at least a $15 donation that will count as your registration – this will save time on the morning and you can grab your receipt that way.

The details for this are on the JDRF Page.

Have a great week and with summer just around the corner now might be a great time to bring down your friends and family.

Ryan J

Hi Everyone 

I hope you have been having a great week - enjoying the warmer weather and for those that have made it to the show I hope you have enjoyed it.

First up you may have noticed the newlink on the homepage where you can see the trainers blogs and also you have the chance to set up your own. There is more information on the page and we will be developing this over the comming weeks 

Secondly we have unfortunately had problems with the hoodies order as they have arrived in the wrong colour. This was out of our hands and I am going through the process to see what can be done. Hopefully you can stick with me and we will get them as ordered eventually.

Have a fantastic weekend and I hope you are all training hard for the JDRF run which is just around the corner on the 23rd of October.

Kind Regards

Ryan 


27-9-11

If you missed out on ordering your shirts send your order through as every 25 we can put another order in.

Hi Everyone,

We at Edge Fitness hope you had a fantasitc weekend.

Also we would like to wish Adam, Clare and Nathan a happy 21st for this month and last.

In other news many of your trainers picked up a supply of brand new medicine balls last Friday, and that combined with an Edge Fitness trainers trainign session should leave you with lots of fun new exercises to test out over the next few weeks - Rock Solo anyone?

Ryan :)


12-8-11

Hi Boys and Girls,

I hope you have had a fantastic week, we have definately had some great weather to train in. Particuarly those crisp and clear mornings :)

We all hope you have been enjoying your last few weeks of training, particuarly those who have managed to get in a training session to a 'fun' location, (I am sure that is what my Scarborough group was thinking about Mount St and Jacobs)  or those who have also been involved in some of th fun games that we have been running.

Just a quick reminder that the city to surf is not far away, so by now you would have hit all your long k's and be starting to taper of. If you are not sure about this have chat with your trainer.

Also after the city to surf there will be a heap of trainers and runners heading out to dinner to celebrate all your hard work and have a social catch up. More info will be coming out soon but if you are interested please let your trainer know so we can start to work out numbers and a best location.

Have a great weekend.

Ryan

Hi Everyone.

I hope you have had a great weekend.

For those of you who have city to surf goals hopefully the rain did not stop you. These few weeks really are you big weeks and you need to do the hard work, not long now.

Training tip for the day - rain is just water falling from the sky, not a reason to skip training. Just think of how you feel after a session, and it's an even better feeling when you have made it through testing conditions. Train hard, make the most of the cool weather and get yourselves set for summer which will be here before you know it :)

Looking forward to seeing you out their training hard.

Ryan


25-7-2011

Hi Everyone,

I hope you have all had a great weekend and that your derby team one - oh that is if you are an eagles supporter... But overall a great game and great to see both teams up in the 8.

Also a big congratulations to a few people - Cadel Evans - Champion Effort in the Tour De France. We think one of Australias greatest sporting achievments.

Also congratulations to Samantha Kukura and the rest of the Australian AeroDance team who won the gold medal at the World Championships in LAs Vegas on the Weekend.

Finally a really big congratulations to those who came down for the run on the weekend. It was a great turnout and everyone was able to run further and faster than last time which was fantastic. Great effort all around on what was a perfect Perth Morning.

Have a great week and train hard - for those running the city to surf it is not far away so you should look at capping out your training kilometres soon before tapering off. Remember to register and it would be great to see you at dinner in the evening.

Kind Regards

Ryan

Hey Boys and Girls,

Just a quick one to let you know the Edge Fitness team for this years City to Surf has been set up. Of the members home page you can click on the link to the 2011 City to Surf and find all the details there.

I will be running again this year and have a set a personal goal to make the top 100 in the 12k. It would be great if you would also like to add your personal goal to the list to help inspire everyone else along the way. It could be running non stop, completeting a new distance or even just finishing :)

If you have questions about the City to Surf have a chat to your trainer :)

Just a quick thankyou to the Australian Institute of Fitness for letting Edge Fitness use their facilities to take the photos for our exercise library. Finally we are getting this section up of the ground and you should notice new exercises and photos being added daily. A big thankyou to Adam Rowney for taking photos and Shaun Voysey for demonstrating the exercises.

Ryan

Hey Everyone,

Well our Bibbulmun track run has now past for another year and well what a run and a turnout it was. The turnout for this event was our biggest outside of the JDRF Walk for a Cure which was fantastic.

By all accounts everyone enjoyed the day, including those who got lost, and everyone had a really great run and workout, including those who got lost.

I would like to put a special thankyou out there to Antonia and Monica who helped with directing people and taking photos some of which are up on facebook and I will add more soon.

If you couldn't make the day our next run will be on Kokoda track in King's Park on the 24th of July.

Thanks for all your support.

Ryan


18-4-11

Hi Boys and Girls,

As always we hope you have had a great weekend. This week signals less than a month before our big run, the feedback around the groups is fantastic and this is looking to be our biggest run yet. Keep training hard for a few more weeks and the work will pay off :) Remember friends and family are also welcome to come down for the run and it would be great if you caould just give me a heads up for the day.

On another note this is a short week for many before a nice long weekend. In regards to what sessions are on /not on it would be best to speak with your trainers as it is up to personal preferences and also your wishes for when we we schedule training sessions.

Lastly Adam Rowney has gone and set up an Edge Fitness group on the moves count webpage. This is a great tool for all you Suunto watch users. You can see what we as trainers do with our training and also upload your own programs. Eventually we will also use this so you can download running programs to your watch for our training sessions and follow these then you can upload them later on for your trainers to see. It is a great tool and also a great motivator.

http://www.movescount.com/groups/group1306-Edge_Fitness

The page is still new but we will be continuing to work out how to use it. If you are interested in the Suunto Watches for your training just let myself or your trainers know.

Have a fantastic week and train hard :)

Ryan


11-4-11

Hey Everyone,

I hope you have had a fantastic weekend and have enjoyed the return of the wet weather :) -  Yes wet training sessions but just remember how much you did dislike the long warm patch we had, so hopefully you can enjoy the rain a chance to really work hard and to build on your cardio.

On that note it would really be great to see you look after yourself in the cold. So where appropriate track pants and jumpers before you start and for afterwards.

The running program for the Bibbulmun is up this week and is one of the hardest sessions to date - (it will be pretty hard for the next few weeks) so hopefully you can grit your teeth, take on the challange and use the cool weather to your advantage to get through it. It will pay off!!

Have a great week and train hard.

Kind Regards

Ryan

Hi Boys and Girls,

I hope you have had a fantastic start to April. This weeks update is to let you know that we have now added pictures to a few more trainer profiles, we are starting to upload the photos for our exercises library, look for the bloopers section of well what not to do :) also we have a new pushup from Dubai!

The running program is also up for this week, May 15th is getting closer and this week we start to build up the k's and intensity a bit more after a well deserved rest week.

Have a great day and traing hard this week.

Remember if you have any ideas or anything you wish to see on these pages just shoot an email through :)

Hey Everyone,

I hope you have had a fanatastic week, you have been enjoying your training, and for those of you gearing up for Mundaring that you have been running hard :)

Programs are up again this week, this week is a chance to rest up a little bit before another hard block next week.

The feedback for this run is awesome, I will be adding alot more names to the list shortley.

Also as a side note Corbyn Berry, our newest trainer at Edge did have his gradutaion from the Australian Institute of Fitness. The night was atteneded by four of the Edge Fitness trainers, we will endeavour to have some photos of the night up soon. In the meantime you can have a look at Corbyns profile in the trainers profile page.

Have a great week and enjoy the fantastic weather that we have at the moment. Yes it is a little bit warm but remember that when it gets cold and wet :)

Ryan

Welcome back to the second edition in a row of a news update :)

Just to let you know week 2 of the running program is up. Also if you wish to commit to the run let me know and I can add your name to the list. Hopefully you have made a start on your training and are getting excited for the run ahead. It would be great to break the 50 participants mark.

I have also attached a file below for jersey designs, at this stage it is based on a football singlet but we can look at sleeved versions and also women’s versions if we get the numbers. The style of singlet we are looking at will be printed on therefore we can completely customise the design.

The design file has been attached as we have had interest from people looking to help out with the design and we will be giving away a free singlet to the winning design.

A few tips that we would like to incorporate into the jersey.

-       Space for a name or nickname on the back

-       It could contain a slogan (possibly space for individual slogans)

-       Reference to JDRF and that we run for a cure (possibly right chest)

-       Our Edge Fitness Logo and our Edge Fitness Colours

I will also attach a photo of the jersey that we had done up for the umpiring Boundaries vs. Field Umpires Football game

If you would like to submit a design or are wishing to put your name down for a jersey please let me know. (Jerseys are likely to be around the $50 ball park, however we may look to hold a quiz night or the like closer to the date which may reduce the cost and the more we order the cheaper they will be.) 

Jersey Template 

Have a great week of training.

Ryan and the Edge Fitness Crew!
