I’m talking about the highly popular High Barbell Back Squat.
It’s true … squatting is the mother of all exercises, and we absolutely love them at Unity Gym. In the Foundation Movement System we use a myriad of different squatting techniques to tone and strengthen the lower body.
But did you know, squatting actually trains most of the core muscles too?
This month was extremely tough because we had five people in the running for the member of the month award. In the end, we had to look at all areas including who had put in the most effort, was the most consistent with their training, who had embraced the principles of the Foundation Movement System and who had brought the best energy to the gym community every single visit.

As a personal trainer working in the fitness industry since 2004 I’ve had plenty of time to ponder why certain people achieve high levels of health whilst other attempt too, but fail.
There’s a myth going around that you should have balance between the healthy things you do, and your regular lifestyle. Indicating that practicing health is alien to regular behaviour.
The thing is, the people who are healthy are healthy period. Their whole life is healthy. Of course they do have some times where they do unhealthy things and think unhealthy thoughts, but most of the time, they are healthy … It’s just a part of their lifestyle.
In my 12 years experience delivering personal training services in north sydney, so long as you treat health as an extrinsic factor in your life you will remain unhealthy and eventually, once your body finally gives out, you will fall victim to disease.
This usually occurs around the age of 35 to 40 years old.
So considering this, is it hard to make the shift and become healthy?
