Core Promises’ in The Age Agrees! Brilliant article regarding Pilates for stability training. It is one of the best I’ve ever read, particularly it’s support of the APMA’s criticism of poorly trained Pilates and fitness instructors and the risk they represent to the public. You don’t have to worry here at Revolution; our Studio and Group Floor practitioners have done a rigorous 2-year training process or equivalent. This is a longer and more detailed study than the Cert IV’s on offer.

All Things Paleo
The 3TWO1 This blog was created by Neil and his sister Linda (chef). They are CrossFitting chefs and Paleo food nutz living in Australia and the USA, with one strong vision: To share their unique take on things CrossFit and Paleo, and how the hell to make it all work while keeping a sense of humor. The recipes taste amazing and they are good for you (check out the Raisin Biscuits…yummo).
Mark’s Daily Apple Excellent source of information about the Paleo Diet, Primal Blueprint and stuff that’s good for you! Register for Mark Sisson’s free newsletter and get yummy recipes, as well as clear science making sense of the nutritional and fitness gobbledegook we are bombarded with. Mark is an amazing character…and looks like he “walks the talk”, too.
The Paleo Solution, The Original Human Diet By author Robb Wolf, this book lays out in clear-to-understand language the science behind the Paleo Diet. Excellent reading though challenging to a lot of current medical paradigms. This link will take you to Robb’s website where you can browse around to your caveman’s content!
Diet & Nutrition
Ultra-Metabolism Throw away all of those fad diet books and programmes… Dr. Mark Hyman has written an easy-to-read (though NOT dumbed-down) book that scientifically supports why eating a healthy diet of organic food in reasonable quantities will speed up and support a sluggish metabolism and assist in negating the hidden allergic effects of many of our ‘favorite’ foods. His easy to follow system worked wonders for me the past 3 years. I wholeheartedly recommend this book, and it’s companion Ultra-Metabolism Cookbook.
Food Rules “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” The author of this amazing, tiny book says that these seven words are all you need to keep you eating healthy. Michael Pollan’s newest book distills the conflicting and complicated nutritional advice from sources as widespread as old wives tales, cultural values and eating habits, to current scientific research… and puts them into 64 ‘rules’ to help you determine what is real food and how to eat it. Want my simple advice? Read it!
Redtail Ridge Organic Beef If you eat meat, these guys are a convenient and healthy way to get excellent quality, locally grown organic beef at a reasonable price, cheaper than the stores…AND they deliver to your door!
180 Nutrition Protein Powder Not your average supplement, this stuff is real food, not a chemical factory in a can. It ticks all the boxes of any protein supplement, including being gluten-free, celiac-friendly, supports a Paleo Diet…and can be used to cook with! Check out their amazing banana cake; it proves that desserts can be made tasty and still provide a positive nutritional punch. It’s the only protein supplement we sell at Revolution.
