As you know I do a lot of traveling around the world living out of a suitcase. I try and stay with friends wherever I go as i find it enjoyable and relaxing after a busy day at work. However I found my fitness training would come to a halt when I was travelling as i struggled to find places to workout apart from going for the odd run. I started to explore new options such as elastic banks that were light and I could easily fit in my suitcase. I have found them ok for resistance training but didn’t really feel I worked up a sweat. Last month I caught up with good friend, strength and conditioning expert Maurizio Tangari in San Diego who showed me some very cool unconventional ways to get a full body workout just using my suitcase! Next day I have to say I was sore and worked up a good sweat during this 20 minute mini circuit! Hope you enjoy it!
Check out more of Maurizio Tangari’s unconventional ways of exercising and working on your core. http://www.urwarrior.com
He always posts some pretty cool stuff on instagram also @mauriziotangari_ur

We’re off to spread the MFMB word in Australia!
We’ve been running the MyFaceMyBody Awards in the UK for a good few years now and they’re getting bigger every year, so we thought it was time to spread the word “downunder”, not least because I’m a Kiwi and desperate for some proper sunshine.
So, the inaugural MyFaceMyBody Australasia Awards will take place on November 28 2015 at The Hilton in Sydney.
Our prestigious awards are the only consumer awards dedicated to the aesthetics industry and recognise and reward brands and beauty practices for their product innovation, service and popularity.
Having successfully established themselves in London as the awards to win for aesthetic clinics, brands and practitioners we’re now going to give consumers a chance to vote for their favorite brands, products and services in Australia and New Zealand where the popularity of aesthetics and beauty is sky-rocketing.
What better excuse to spend some time in the southern hemisphere over their summer!
The glamourous awards event, sponsored by Syneron Candela Australia, together with Advanced Skin Technology, DHI Hair Clinics and Advanced Cosmeceuticals, and as with the UK Awards, I’ll be hosting, joined by leading health and beauty professionals, beauty brands, journalists, TV personalities and celebrities.
We’ve got some amazing judges on board too. They’ve been busy whittling down the entries to some top class finalists:
The finalists have been selected by a team of exceptionally talented and experienced judges:
If you’re in Australia or New Zealand, please visit the Aesthetic Awards Australia and New Zealand site and vote for your favourite aesthetics products, practices and professionals.
VOTING IS OPEN NOW UNTIL OCTOBER 30.

Dr Fab is all about making you feel fabulous from the inside and out. We have the healthy Kitchen which will cover some really healthy alternatives to popular dishes.

Well what a tournament at Wimbeldon this year. Some great matches and big upsets. Its a shame Andy Murray has been knocked out of the tournament but best to be beaten by the most charming player ‘Roger Federer’.
I have thoroughly enjoyed being at Wimbeldon this year and very lucky might i say! I have been invited to the corporate boxes on Sunday to watch the mens finals and drink a bit of champagne. Can’t wait! I will be cheering Roger Federer to go all the way.
What always amazes me about Roger is he is not only one of the best players in the world but wins the support of the crowd every year. Why is this? A lot say he is a real gentleman on and off the court. A lot of males can really learn from Roger in the way he composes himself professionally and the way he comes across on television and in real life. He always looks in control even when he is one set down to his opponent he comes across relaxed and never loses his cool like some other players i won’t mention.!
I think Roger Federer is a real inspiration to a lot of males and a great role model for young men coming through ranks.
