What the Hell is TRIBE Team Training?

TRIBE

If you’ve ever had a moment when you realise your perception is a lot further from reality than you realised, you’ll understand how I felt while chatting with Haagon East (CEO/Managing Director, TRIBE Team Training) and Jamie Hayes (Australian TRIBE Team Training Agent) at the recent Fitness Expo in Sydney.

The Amazing Sheridan

“Hi. I just wanted to share my experience tonight, I have been doing the Frankston classes, with this being my third week. My boys, 4 and nearly 2, come with me. We have a ritual at bedtime to talk about our favourite part of the day. Tonight Mr 4’s favourite part of the day was seeing our instructor Sheridan at “exercise”. He told his Dad that when we see Sheridan we get to do push ups, mountain climbers and get strong. Thank you for this incredible program, and for the amazing Sheridan who includes the kids wherever possible and makes me feel so welcome and comfortable in an active environment. And the gift of an active, positive role model for my kids is priceless.

What the Hell is MetaFit?

MetaFit

Following on from our successful article on ‘What the Hell is Nordic Walking?‘ here’s some insight into a new, equipment free, group exercise session called Metafit.

With origins in the UK, Metafit was introduced to Australia by Daniel Wilson (I’ve known Daniel for years – his extensive industry experience includes Club Management, Sales Management and Personal Training, both here and abroad).

In a relatively short space of time Metafit has become a staple for many Trainers. In fact, some have based their whole business around it (check out THE HIIT MUM in the West of Melbourne). Continue reading
