Les Mills Cycling Experience

Having done Cycling, RPM, Hi-Perf RPM, Spin, and other cycling varieties on offer by different clubs in the past, I was really keen to get into the saddle and give this latest creation by Les Mills a try, especially since I haven’t physically been on the stationary bike since December last year due to an injury. I arrived at the venue at Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre on Saturday morning and it was buzzing with hundreds if not thousands of fit-looking crowds, as it also coincided with the Australian Health & Fitness Expo. I ran into some friends and instructors that I knew, and was overjoyed to tell them that I was about to take part of the Australia’s first immersive cycle experience.  Expectations were certainly high! After a quick introduction to the team (both from Les Mills & Reebok), we were escorted to the room, and my first impression with the massive screen, pumping music and sexy looking bikes was WOW!!!! I positioned myself on the 2nd row in the centre, so I got to …

Gravity Floatation Centre

Our Gravity Float Experience

Last week, we got to experience the true feeling of weightlessness with the latest relaxation trend – floatation therapy, at the Gravity Float Centre. If you’re scratching your head, confused about exactly what is floatation therapy, then you’re in the same boat (no pun intended) as we were. Floatation therapy dates back to the 1950s when medical practitioner and neuropsychiatrist , John Lily wanted to test the effects of sensory deprivation. Since then floatation therapy has been used widely for stress, anxiety and muscle relaxation. Gravity Float Centre is located in Northcote (right opposite Welcome to Thornbury), and their centre is focused on providing the ultimate relaxation therapy. Their range of  organic skincare products, herbal teas and zen waiting room are the perfect complement to your therapy. After you have filled out the usual registration forms, you are led into your private Gravity Float room (there’s 6 of them in the centre) and a staff member runs you through what …
