AB Members exclusive Zoom Session with Tanya Cross.
“The Changing World”
The world is changing and there is a new level of stress on people with lockdowns, border closers, and not being able to trade or see friends and family. There is no denying it is not tough. We know the consequences of stress from ageing to ill health, not to mention the mental stress, loss of sleep and inability to concentrate that it has on the mind and body.
There is a lot known about stress and the strategies to deal with it. Most of the strategies are doing something to relieve the stress like go for a walk, talk to a friend, journal. But few strategies get to the inner workings of your mind to uncover why you perceive your outside environment as stressful in the first place.
What is becoming more known about stress is that in stressful events some people can experience a post-traumatic transformation. This is when individuals go through psychological turmoil and trauma it may not simply bring about growth, but a dramatic transformation. Transformations occur because individuals have a different way of thinking and viewing their experiences.
Over two weeks, you’ll learn psychology 101 and understand that in your challenges lies our greatest strengths and what questions to ask to become more grateful for the challenges and changes that are surrounding us. You’ll have more certainty in your own future no matter what is happening in the outside world.
If you aren’t enjoying your training or if training is all about achieving the desired weight on the scale then we recommend you change the way you do things.
If you don’t love your routine and don’t look forward to your next session then it is most likely that you won’t sustain any positive results you gain.
When you find the workout, the environment, the people, the coaches and the structure that keeps you wanting to go back- you’ve arrived at the right place. No matter how amazing a program may be and it doesn’t matter how great the results your friends may get from a particular way of training…. If you don’t love it, you simply won’t stick to it.
It’s been a crazy few months right? Working from home, home schooling, back to school, back to work, who can keep up?? Before you know it the school holidays will be here and kids will be home again.
With restrictions being eased, why not lock in a date night, or an overdue catch up with friends and leave the kids with us?!

A word from our Buddha of the Month.
“I love training at The Athletic Buddha. The variety with each class is always challenging, the members are great and there’s such a different feel to the gym compared to ones I have trained at over the last 20+ years (showing my age ????). You all make me feel welcome, which probably sounds strange, but you all make a big effort to get to know your members and what works for them. The classes Daniel, Patch, Katie and Josh take are amazing. They are fantastic at what they do!”- Justine.

What do you get when you combine a front squat with an overhead press?
Answer: A Thruster
The thruster is one of the more taxing movements in CrossFit. A total body movement that pushes the mind as much as the body. In CrossFit you learn to get comfortable with the uncomfortable and whether we know it at the time or not, our CrossFit workout is preparing us for life. Motherhood, entrepreneurship, high school exams or whatever your daily grind may be- CrossFit helps equip you with the mental strength and confidence to “win” in life.
Ms Dani may be away on an amazing adventure with her family but she is never really too far from her Buddha Family. She has been working up a sweat on the gym floor, playing with the Temple babies, gone for a cruise in the Buddha Bus for After School Fitness, kicked some soccer balls around, snuck off for a quick coffee @cucinaespresso picked up some goodies from @the_drawing_room_co before indulging in a facial @theskinclinicconcord. ❤ you D!
Fall in love with the process of becoming the best version of you. What does the best version of YOU look like?
The “BEST” version of me is aligned, healthy, grateful, kind and sustainable. The best version of me requires work EVERYDAY. The best version of me trains most days, rests and restores the others. Daily meditations and 8 hours of sleep per night. Choosing wiser when fuelling my body and remembering to stay hydrated.
Regardless of the goal you deserve to fall in love with finding out what that BEST version of yourself feels like.
