If your employees are slumped over their desks with
their eyeballs swinging from their heads, it might be
time you considered some healthy changes.
Former AFL player Brady Anderson has recently
started Andersons The Body Movement, which aims
to educate corporate clients about core health.
Brady takes his experience dealing with the
accumulated stress and injuries from the playing
field to help those dealing with daily stresses in the
boardroom. He believes that with the right program,
executives are fitter and better equipped to deal with
the daily stresses of their job and can also learn some
of the mental toughness of the elite sportsman,
essential for performing at top levels in the office.
The Body Movement program focuses on holistic
health, identifying any imbalances on a cellular and
physiological level before making adjustments to
exercise regimes, nutrition, and mental, emotional
and environmental factors to correct the imbalances.
Brady believes generic exercise programs like
boot camps can be detrimental to a lot of individu-
als, doing more damage than good. Instead, he for-
mulates a very individualised program for executives
with key performance indicators they have to build
into their everyday life.
"We restore core health and posture through
an individualised process which consistently leads
to quantifiable workplace performance break-
throughs," says Brady. "The benefits are stress
reduction, pain-free movement, reduced fatigue and
improved cognitive functioning."
Whether there are serious inroads to be made or
simply tweaks for an already health-conscious execu-
tive, Brady believes the programs pit clients against
their own personal best.

Hook up from a push up
Working out just got a whole lot more interesting
with east coast venture Fit2Date arriving in Perth.
In 2007, Sydneysider Erica French decided
to bring together all of her fabulous, single
friends for a training session after meeting past
boyfriends through sport.
Realising she was on to something, Erica
developed a four-week training program for fit
singles who want to train hard and meet like-

three times per week.
According to Erica, about 20 relationships
have evolved from the program. There have
been a fair few break-ups already (better to have
loved and lost, right?), plenty of "hook ups" and
secret dates, and countless friendships.
To register with a group for the four-week program
costs $225, so visit fit2date.com.au to get started.
« Shape up in the lounge
While we don't ordinarily condone hanging out
in your lounge where the couch is in plain view,
taunting you to come closer, the recent popu-
larity of Nintendo's Wii Fit has us wondering
whether it is possible to get fit in front of the
TV. Their latest program has an added dynamic
to motivate the laziest of lounge lizards.
Your Shape is a fitness game that contains
a camera peripheral within the box that uses
body tracking technology to scan the player's
bodies before projecting their image onto the
Your physique will then appear onscreen
next to an image of a personal trainer who
provides encouragement and monitors your
movements, correcting any moves that need it.
The trainer then tracks your progress and
suggests tutorials specific to your goals while
you can choose to personalise your workout by
duration, music choice and whether you have
training equipment. Clever eh?

E WAR AGAINST AGEING is an ongoing battle -- so when we
ard about the launch of a new skin-tightening machine at Subi-
o's Assure Medispa, we thought we'd spread the word.
The Cutera Titan Procedure is the world's first light-based system
treat wrinkles through the tightening of skin in a non-surgical
ocedure. The machine is designed to tighten skin on the face, neck,
ghs, upper arms and abdomen and works wonders on a post-preg-
