Chocolate Fitness 2017

Welcome back everyone! It looks like the official routines have been launched, the kids are officially packed off to school and we can officially focus on foregone fitness again! So here’s a quick rundown of current chocolate housekeeping:


Monday 9:30 – 10:30 Beach HIIT Balgowlah area

Tuesday 9:15 – 10:45 Off the Grid, 1st Tuesday of each month beginning

March 7 @ $20 (4 people minimum)

6:20 – 7:10 Unofficial run and swim from 69 Bungaloe starting this

week, Feb 14

Wednesday 9:00- 10:30 Kayak Fitness, Oceanworld

Thursday 9:30-10:30 Beach HIIT, Boatshed Balgowlah

Friday 9:30-10:30 Circuit, Balgowlah Area

Saturday 8:30-10:00 Kayak Fitness, Oceanworld


$20 per session, or $15 if 4 or more people. I will endeavour to warn everyone if

numbers look low.

Kayak Fitness: $30 for 10 pass or $35 casual

A gold coin donation for boat shed sessions is appreciated as I pay rent on a per head


Heat Wave Fitness:

Well, we created these temperatures and now be have to learn to exercise in them! In

extreme temperatures, I will keep cardio to a minimum and attempt to keep sessions

in the shade. Please bring loads of water and wear swimmers if you would like a mid

session water cool down.

Heat wave Tuesdays: This is an unofficial session leaving 69 Bungaloe at 6:20, bush

run to 40 Baskets by 6:45 (with a few exercises along the way), swim 10 laps, and

return to 69 Bungaloe by 7:10. Please join me for it all or join me for a swim (this is

my secret training for the Old & Bold & Beautiful and the Balgowlah Bolt).

Chocolatey Etiquette:

I am attempting a new year of punctuality! How long this will last, I

cannot imagine, however I am trying to begin each session on time. When we

finish is anyone’s guess.

I am loving the social culture we have created! There are a few of us however who are

more serious about creating chocolate eating credits from our sessions. If this is you, please

make sure you are close to the exercise action and if you find that your exercise is moving more

into the muscles of your jaw, if would be much appreciated if you could move to the side/back of the group.


Upcoming local races:

Bridge to beach paddle 11 km February 26

Balgowlah Bolt (new event) 2.75/5.3 km March 19

Spartan 7/15 km May 6/7

Manly Fun Run 5/10 km May 21

Mini Mos Marathon 5/10 km June 18

Please let me know if you are interested in any of the above.

Other Chocolatey Adventures :

I am investigating a 3 day mini paddling/hiking budget trip to Tasmania in mid May:

Arrive Friday, Mona, lunch and drive to Freixinet

Saturday: 6 hour hike around wine glass bay etc

Sunday morning: Kayak the bay, drive to Hobart and evening return to Sydney

It’s a germ of an idea but let me know if it tickles your fancy!

Chocolate Night:

Current liquifying temperatures not very condusive to any solid chocolate creations!

Stay tuned, I will set a date when the mercury drops.

That’s all for now I think! Please let me know if you have any questions/comments/ ideas/concepts etc.
