My Gym Rules by Peta

I don't think that anyone I know would characterise me as OCD. 

In any way. 

At all. 

Ever.

At time of writing I have 3785 unread emails, and I admit to being the progenitor of our recent clinic chat "You can wash your hair with dishwashing liquid but you can't wash dishes with shampoo." (the residue just doesn't rinse off and it ends up making food taste like Jojoba or Desert Oasis or one of those other beauty product words we all pretend to understand. You're welcome.)

Gluteal Amnesia

Gluteal Amnesia

You know when you're having an argument with someone and you get angry, and you know you can't say “you are such a dickhead” but you can get away with “you're acting like a dickhead”?

Bear with me here, but I reckon this applies to glutes, disc bulges, shin splints, heel spurs and a heap of other painful things. We have so many clients that come in and say “I was told it's shin splints and to stop running” or “I had a scan that showed a slipped disc so I haven't deadlifted since then”, and I'd like to convince them these things don't always mean that particular body part IS a dickhead, maybe it was just acting like one at one point.

Cast Away with Tom Hanks & the Evolutio Team

Cast Away with Tom Hanks & the Evolutio Team

Following a gruelling six-month selection camp that included events such as the left arm 1 rep max bicep curl and racing a great white shark I was given the honour to spend 4 weeks with the Average Joe’s down at Evolutio. It wasn’t all sunshine and smiles though. Two weeks before flying over from Glasgow I began to have the nervous shakes about coming to Melbourne and what happened next I will never forget. Team Captain Alex called me and said "Well, I guess if a person never quit when the going got tough, they wouldn't have anything to regret for the rest of their life. But good luck to you. I'm sure this decision won't haunt you forever." Now that may or may not be a quote from Dodgeball the movie and that may or may not have actually happened.
