My Guests

Join my guests for quick tips about running your own workshops, fitness Challenges or both. A huge thanks to all these clever people for taking the time to share a few minutes of their wisdom with us all.

Jase Gunn

Think your listeners aren’t listening?

In New Zealand Jason is a little bit of a huge legend in the land of TV and radio.  Thankfully he has a growing pool of videos  filled with great tips for anyone who wants to present publicly. So, instead of asking him to do one specifically for us, I chose one of my recent favourites, spotted on LinkedIn, to share here.   Turns out LinkedIn doesn’t let me share vids outside of it’s platform, so I emailed him, and his team reposted it to Facebook, and yay, here it is for y’all!

Jase offers online coaching via his Easily Said site.

Ish Cheyne

Surviving COVID and beyond

Ish is the Head of Fitness at Les Mills, known for his fast-paced, entertaining style and his content rich, useful advice.

I’ve just binge listened to the first three of his new podcasts presented alongside Sacha Coburn, but for here and now I’m linking you to his COVID talk with the Exercise Association of NZ, available on Soundcloud and by clicking here, because as he points out, that’s unlikely to be a standalone event, so we best be prepared!
