I am not at the top of my fitness right now and I will probably never be where I was 2 years ago. What I do know is that I am still turning up to train regardless if I’m exhausted from running my gym, being a loving husband or a devoted dad. Yes, I own a gym and I am always here but at times its hard to train in your own gym, its my workplace. I overcome this by putting my health as my priority and I am happy. If I become unhealthy then I will not be able to fulfil my life duties. As much as we love to reflect on how fit we were we must just keep walking into the future. I dedicate this to my family, my friends and you that maybe struggling with your health, fitness both mentally and physically. Please don’t see me as some fitness athlete but more of someone that can help you. Steve 🙏🏾 #getactive#behealthy#getfit#exercise#fitazboss#fitazdarwingym#personaltrainer#fitness#gym#darwin 💯🖤
Its a rewarding change for your body to drop the weights and hit a good bodyweight workout every now and then. Its helps maintain the athletic muscle structure in your physique. Also, it give those sore joints and muscles a break while on training days. Break away from the lifts this week and give a bodyweight workout a hit. 🤘🏾 #fitazboss#fitazdarwingym#fitness#gym#bodyweightworkout#darwin 💪🏾🖤

Its time for me to do another fundraiser for our community, its what I love to do. 🙏🏾 #Repost @steve_fitazdarwingym with @get_repost
I have made the decision to get on the powerwheel at this Saturdays powerwheel-a-thon fundraiser to support my fellow walkers and to meet our fundraising target of $5,000. I now ask all my business friends to sponsor me per metre. Its a gift to the kids living with Tourette Syndrome. #tourettesyndrome#powerwheelathon#fundraiser#fitazdarwingym#fitazboss 💚
When you start to run out of time for your big day we must return to that training program that made your physique looked the best for yourself. This is called muscle memory. Your body will recognise the workouts and adapt quicker producing faster results. My fall back is good old weights training. I got 11 days to turn my partying body into wedding body. Always go back to what made you your best. 🙏🏿 #fitazboss#fitazdarwingym#cardonawedding#fitness#gym#darwin 💪🏾🖤
“The strongest people make time to help others, even when they are struggling themselves”. I own a gym because I am passionate about fitness and helping others. My struggle, is my training can suffer from providing my attention to ensure my clients training goals are fulfilled and running the gym. Helping others is more rewarding to me. 🙏🏿 #fitazboss#fitazdarwingym#darwin#helpingothers 🖤💯

✔️Reducing resting blood pressure. ...
✔️Improving blood lipid profiles. ...
✔️Enhancing postcoronary performance. ...
✔️Resisting diabetes. ...
✔️Increasing bone density. ✔️Keep your muscles young.
40’s is the new 30’s!! #fitazboss#fitazdarwingym#weightstraining#oldboy#keepingyoung#fitness#gymowner#darwin 🖤
I often wonder why is losing kilos on a scale more important then building lean muscle to many. Losing kilos can be great reward for your dieting or your motivation but what happens when you haven’t lost any in a week? What does that do to your mindset? every time you try and lose body fat you just end up skinny, or worse, skinny fat.
Building lean muscle is the secret to maintaining a healthy , low fat percentage physique. Yes, muscle does weight heavier then fat and your scale readings will increase but lean muscle will continue to burn fat while you rest. Ask yourself, do you want to reduce kilos on the scales and look flabby or do you want to look toned? A toned body will help keep the fat away, so start building those lean muscles!!

Sunday recovery rest day in the pool. I used to train minimum 10 days straight trying to maintain a low fat percentage physique for the business. After years of this mindset it finally took its toll with old age catching up to me. So now I schedule 2 rest days a week. Train smart, take rest days come back fresh. 🙏🏿 #sunday#restday#recovery#fitazboss#fitazdarwingym 🖤
I posses an old busted up body. My left elbow is always in pain, worse when I train. My right shoulder has limited mobility and inherits pain when I lift. Both my knees are pretty much done and hurt everytime I squat, and pull a hammy every now and then. I will get back up tomorrow to go into battle wounded and still come out alive. No pain no gain!!!! #fitazboss#warrior#nopainnogain#strongmind#strongbody#fitaz ✊🏾🖤
During our fitness journey we will try out many of the training programs available. Some we will love, some we will hate and then there is the one that made us the fittest. When it was just me and my powerwheel I was 83kg lean, fit, athletic and strong. Sitting at a bulky 95kg its time to take the wheel for a spin for the next 7 days!! You may love what your doing now but reflect back to what made you your fittest, it can only empower your mind, body and soul.

Our Indigenous health is a growing concern with a high rate of diabetes, unhealthy living and alcoholism. Its great to see so many Indigenous brothers and sisters getting into better health and fitness. My brother boy @kadeemwarrior show cases the stories of our black mob looking after themselves, their health and fitness. Give @_blackfitness a follow and lets support the positives of our culture.

There are so many gyms offering a variety of fitness programs. Each gym has their own beliefs in their fitness regimes. None of these programs are wrong in the way the trainers deliver their programs. Gym owners have a job and that job is to encourage you to exercise. Stop wasting time and start exercising 🙏🏿 #fitazboss#fitazdarwingym#gymowner#fitness#gym#exercise#darwin 🖤💯
There are 3 levels I put into both my training and business.
2. Courage and
Some would say its the making of a Leo.......I say its just who I am. “Be more of you and less of others” Steve 🙏🏿 #fitazboss#fitazdarwingym#darwin ❤️🖤
Crossfit level 1 coaches course completed!! Spent 2 days learning from this amazing athlete and presenter Pat Barber @patbarbercf
Just to be clear I am not opening a crossfit gym or changing FIT’AZ to crossfit. This is a personal development opportunity for myself as a fitness coach. As an owner of a gym and trainer I don’t receive technical advice or correction on my movements. This was a great opportunity to learn from a different regime of fitness. You can never stop learning no matter how advance you believe you are. Thank you Pat, Tom and Gavin for the insight into crossfit 🙏🏿 #fitazboss#crossfitcourse#darwin#fitness 🤘🏾🖤
I workout because I can. When I feel too sore, injured, tired or can’t find time I remember how lucky I am to be healthy enough to workout. Be grateful for your health and your ability to become fitter & stronger. Don’t ever take it for granted, use it!! Happy Friday team 🙏🏿❤️ #fitazboss#fitazdarwingym#fitness#gymboss#friday#darwin

I hear from time to time people are not achieving their ideal fitness goals. In this case then you need to reassess the following ⚫️ are you performing 100% correct movement to each exercise?
⚫️ are you still lifting that same weight you lifted 6 months ago?
⚫️ are you really giving it 100%
⚫️ are you sticking to your eating plan?
⚫️ are you having more then 1 rest day a week?
These are some factors to look at even though you may think your giving it all. At the age of 46 being into fitness all my life I still receive coaching to correct and perfect my techniques. I want to get the full benefits from my workouts and is why I achieve my fitness goals. If you remain the same don’t complain, make it happen 🙏🏿 #fitazboss#fitazdarwingym#personaltrainer#gymowner#darwin 🖤💯
My eating isn’t of a strict nature more fuelling the body to train. Typical Darwin boy I love my RICE!!! My daily eating consists of healthy options abundance in protein and carbs with a side of green every now & then. So Anita decided, well told me to go onto the gut health program. I still eat my regular daily foods with the added digestive health supplement, bone broth, sauerkraut and a daily super greens smoothie. Last night I ate curry chicken and rice, every night I have rice. The gut health program supported my digestive system to wake up with the abs still showing.
Our next FIT’AZ 4 Week Gut Health Healing Program starts Monday 9 April 2018. We are now doing online programs for those that live interstate or go to another gym. PM me for details.

I have never been one for running but lately I have stepped into the NO GO ZONE to build on my fitness. I am now progressing on my endurance during workouts and recovery in between sets. It is also feels great to give my old body a break from lifting!! Giving it a go 💪🏾 #fitazboss#fitazdarwingym#friday#oldboy#46#darwin 💯🖤
Still FIT’AZ at 46!! Feeling tired, sore & bloated I took yesterday off full training. This morning I’m feeling back to myself.
When we overtrain the body starts to use our immune system to rebuild our muscles and not to defend against foreign invaders like the viruses and the flu. Also, we lose sleep due to our cortisol levels being high placing our bodies into damage mode causing it to hold water to protect. It can also stop the body from burning fat. Sleep is most important for recovery, rebuilding and progress.
My plan now is to train 2 days on 1 day off...........lets see if I can keep to this 🙏🏿 Happy Thursday team

I train over 160 clients and everyday I do crazy workouts only to motivate and inspire my members. Some say I show off, some may say I talk too much but at the end of the day this is my job, my business and my livelihood. Long as my clients are inspired then thats all that matters. 🤣
