    Ozgur (Oz) Begen: The benefits of altitude training for runners.

    Ozgur (Oz) Begen: The benefits of altitude training for runners.

    High altitude training is a simple phenomenon which entails working out in a limited-oxygen environment. Exposure to such settings challenges the human body to produce the required amount of energy to perform exercise. Working out under such condition stimulates production of red blood cells and hence improved oxygen propagation through the body. The intended purpose is to ensure efficient use of the available amount of oxygen, which translates to enhanced stamina and explosive strength. The Melbourne Altitude Training centre is the vision of internationally acclaimed athlete, Ozgur Begen, who has proven track record in pole vaulting, weightlifting, gymnastics and other team sports. Ozgur is now a certified physical trainer, with more than 20 years of experience in coaching and training that include professional involvement and active participation at the University of Melbourne, Victorian Institute of Sport (VIS) and Grand Hyatt Melbourne City Club. 
    Oz joins us to talk about the benefits of high altitude training. Check out his packages and programs here.: https://www.melbournealtitudetraining.com.au/

    How do runners control themselves around all the food and alcohol at Christmas time?

    How do runners control themselves around all the food and alcohol at Christmas time?

    I thought it might be timely to discuss how we as runners can deal with all the food and drink over the Christmas period. It can be hard when there is so much yumminess around!

    Craig Harper; Keeping Sh*t (and Ultra running) real.

    Craig Harper; Keeping Sh*t (and Ultra running) real.

    Today’s podcast is with the amazing Craig Harper. For those of you who haven’t heard of him, here is a snippet of his bio from his website craigharper.net
    Craig Harper is one of Australia’s leading presenters, writers and educators in the areas of health, high-performance, resilience, self-management, leadership, corporate change, communication, stress management, addiction and personal transformation. Craig has been an integral part of the Australian health and fitness industry since 1982 and in that time has worked as an Exercise Scientist, Corporate Speaker, Consultant, University Lecturer, AFL Conditioning Coach, Radio Host, TV Presenter, Writer and successful Business Owner. In 1990 Craig established Harper’s Personal Training, which evolved into one of the most successful businesses of its kind and inhabited the Australian fitness landscape for almost a quarter of a century. Craig currently hosts a successful Podcast called ‘The You Project’. He’s also completing a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, exploring the role of motivation in creating lasting change.
    I have been an avid listener of the You Project since last year when I was in Canada, not just because of the educational and informative content, but because of his strong Aussie accent! It was great to listen to when I was feeling homesick. I have found so much of what Craig presents on his podcast to be really helpful for me navigating through life. Check out his podcast and I’m sure you’ll agree! You just can’t be too sensitive about swearing!
    Craig and I talk about resilience, reframing and mental strength in this podcast. I hope you get a lot out of it!
