Winter is finally here… and so far it’s been kind to us, hopefully, the good weather continues for a couple more months!

It’s been a while since my last newsletter…. I’ve just got back from an extended trip to Spain to see my family, I can’t believe it’s been 3 years since my last trip, where does the time go?

Here’s a picture of the family at my dad’s 70th birthday…

Also… On my last trip 3 years ago I set up the European Personal Training Institute with my brother Toby, so it was great to be able to attend a couple of our courses.

One course was held in Spain, the other in Malta. Kettlebell Training on Denia Beach, Spain…

Policemen need to take their fitness seriously as their lives and other people's lives depend on them.

Police Fitness: Why We Need The Law Enforcers To Be Physically Fit

Policemen are very important people to us. Just the sight of them makes us feel safe and protected because we know that when trouble arises, we can count on them to come to our aid. It may sound a bit self-absorbed but their fitness matters a lot to us because it is when they are healthy that we feel that they are capable to help our families.

Policemen need to take their fitness seriously as their lives and other people's lives depend on them.

Policemen need to take their fitness seriously as their lives and other people’s lives depend on them.

What fitness does it take to be a policeman?

We all know that it takes a certain level of physical ability to be able to perform well on the job. Although the standard is not as high as that of soldiers, policemen need to be able to carry out his physical duties; some of which require strength and endurance.

A person signing up for the police force must be able to pass a fitness test which doesn’t just involve running, lifting or dodging empty bullets. It’s an overall checkup which includes the eyesight, medical history and health issues.

What we don’t always see on our favorite TV shows is that policemen have a variety of duties other than just tailing a suspected criminal or running after a bank robber; their job is a combination of field work that can get really exciting and dangerous at the same time and the boring paperwork.

There is a lot of paperwork and dealing with people behavior; but the ability to react appropriately and accordingly to situations, emergency or otherwise, is top priority especially because lives would be at stake.

The crime rate in New Zealandhas been down for years, you’d imagine that their law enforcers are probably just sitting it out and getting paid for it; but `ain’t that far from the truth! A 60-year old police commissioner voluntarily went through a fitness test in his determination to stay in the list of officers that are “operationally deployed”.

Here’s a bit of that story on The New Zealand Herald:

60-Year Old Police Commissioner Passes Fitness Test

Police Commissioner Peter Marshall has put many of his junior officers to shame, completing the police fitness test with plenty of time to spare.

The 59-year-old had three minutes and 26 seconds to complete his physical competency test (PCT), but came in at two minutes and 56 seconds.

The test is not a requirement for commissioned officers, but Mr Marshall said he felt it was the right thing to do as the leader of the police force.

Policemen should take their fitness seriously whether they’re assigned a desk or are sent out on the field. Their lives, as well as other people’s lives, depend on it.

Here’s a video of one of our group training in Sydney:

Fitness is what we are all about. Register for our Dangerously Fit group training and get into the best physical condition you can ever be.

Can a Person Be Allergic to Exercise?

Life Threatening Allergy to Exercise – Exercise-Induced Angioedema (EIA)

Could you be Allergic to Exercise?

Some people are in fact, allergic to exercise, and in unusual instances, a sweaty workout might just be enough to kill them. An individual with exercise-induced angioedema or EIA is an allergic reaction to exercise in which a person may feel tired, warm, or itchy during the first few minutes of physical exercise, after which symptoms can progress quickly such as swollen lips, throat, and eyes. Other signs can sometimes include fainting, difficulty breathing, vomiting, and hives. At times, signs and symptoms don’t manifest for about four hours right after working out.

In some instances, EIA could be caused by particular foods taken prior to exercise, such as peanuts, eggs, shellfish or some times, celery. However, this is not simply your typical food allergy, a health professional clarifies.

Therefore, what’s the main reason for your allergy to fitness and exercise? Your health problem might be influenced by the actions you do before you participate in working out. For instance, in most people who use aspirin prior to exercise or perhaps those who eat right away before working out, the side effect of an allergic reaction isn’t unusual.

Can a Person Be Allergic to Exercise?

Can a Person Be Allergic to Exercise?

The progression of hives, apart from difficulty breathing, can also develop, and it is also frequently used as the indicator to find out if exercise allergy could be the primary cause of the allergic reaction. In other words, if you are suffering from anaphylactic episodes and hives through exercise, this itself, is the significant factor that your doctor may depend on in making the diagnosis.

While you exercise, your heartbeat increases and your blood begin racing through organs much more quickly and thus more often, than it usually does. By each trip, your blood gets into your stomach, getting more celery bits. For people suffering from EIA, the normal level of celery antigens acquired by the blood is not sufficient to affect them. However, while working out, the added celery bits their blood is collecting leads to an allergic reaction.

Health experts think that is simply because a lot of people with this illness can identify the signs and symptoms fast and keep it in control by just waiting a few hours right after they eat to exercise and ending their workouts through warming up and cooling down slowly. Or you can try swimming for your regular aerobic regimen, which keeps the body temperature cool. In case a food allergy may be the reason, don’t eat for a few hours prior to your exercise.

Just like any complication involving exercise or fitness, the secret to your recuperation depends on the early diagnosis as well as treatment. With no diagnosis, your workouts might be detrimental to your overall health and, eventually, may be treatable with some minor changes in your workout schedule.
