Introduction From Cathy

Hello everyone!
I’d like to introduce myself. I’m Cathy, the new owner of Results In Motion. A little bit about myself and how I came to be here. In 2005 at age thirty-five, I found myself at a very pained and uncomfortable 116kg on a 5’1” (short) frame! After an unsuccessful application for the first Australian series of The Biggest Loser, I decided the least I could do was get off my ample butt and go join the small, local gym down the road. That was the start of a never-going-back journey to regular and intense training and eating better. There were also a lot of emotional and psychological barriers I broke through as well. I developed a passion for training, especially strength and conditioning style training, with a bit of dance stuff thrown in for good measure and fun!

People started to want to know how I achieved a 40kg weight loss. I’m passionate about helping people but I wasn’t qualified to help. So I expanded on my passion and got qualified so I could help people achieve their fitness goals, especially in the way of weight loss. This is how I came to meet Erin, previous owner of RIM. Erin was one of my lecturers during my Certificate III & IV training. I also have accreditations in Boxing (Level 1),
Suspension Training, Kettlebells (Level 1 & 2), Group Outdoor Training and Myofascial Release – all through Erin’s business PD4PT’s.

My own personal experience with training has given me first-hand knowledge of what the process feels like for a consumer, of all things fitness. From daunting to elating. I went from someone who thought running was for freaks, a couple of decades ago, to experiencing Tough Mudder, Muddy Hell, a mini Triathlon, and a few other fun runs such as the Mother’s Day Classic. All things I never dreamed I’d do. It’s the big reason why I’m so passionate about fitness.

It’s fundamental in proving you can do more than you think you can! That people can evolve from incredibly unfit to running 5km with relative ease! A real sense of achievement. Oh yes! If my PE teacher could see me now! I’ve also now had work experience in many aspects of the industry. From personal training and instructing to member support and management.

So here I am now at Results In Motion. Ready to help you achieve your fitness goals!

5 Benefits of Vitamin D!

Vitamin D – also known as the sunshine vitamin because it’s produced in your skin in response to SUNLIGHT! Your body produces it naturally when it’s directly exposed to sunlight. You can also get it through certain foods and supplements to ensure adequate levels of the vitamin in your blood. Vitamin D’s most vital functions are regulating the absorption of calcium and phosphorus and facilitating normal immune system function. If your body doesn’t get enough Vitamin D, you’re at risk of developing bone abnormalities such as soft bones (osteomalacia) or fragile bones (osteoporosis). Here are 5 more benefits of Vitamin D.

  1. Vitamin D fights disease – reduces your risk of MS, decreases your chance of developing heart disease and reduces your likelihood or developing the flu.
  2. Regulates insulin levels and aid diabetes management
  3. Vitamin D boosts weight loss – In one study, people taking a daily Calcium and Vitamin D supplement were able to lose more weight than subjects taking a placebo supplement. The scientists said the extra calcium and Vitamin D had an appetite suppressing effect.
  4. Supports lung function and cardiovascular health
  5. Vitamin D reduces depression – It can play an important role in regulating mood and warding off depression.

Class Focus: RIM Fight Club/ HIIT It HARD

Class Focus: RIM Fight Club/ HIIT It HARD

When we HIIT it here at RIM, we HIIT it HARD! Intervals, Tabata, cardio, circuits & sweat.

This is one of our favourite classes on the timetable & one that we have kept around for a while and added in a twist. Did you know that boxing can burn as much as 500 calories per session? Some benefits of boxing include increased muscle tone, build strong bones and ligaments, increased cardiovascular fitness, better muscular endurance, improved core stability, increased strength and power & an awesome stress reliever.

But we understand boxing is not for everyone – so we usually split the session up and have an option of a HIIT section on the whiteboard which consists of Tabata, intervals, circuits, timed challenges, EMOMs (every minute on the minute) and AMRAPS (as many rounds as possible).

Be prepared for impact, movement, speed agility & sweat because this class is full on!

How To Choose A PT

Nice work on deciding to take your health and fitness to the next level and choosing to work with an exercise professional. It’s important you hire someone who will help reach your goals but will also keep you feeling comfortable, motivated and inspired throughout the process. The main things to take into consideration are:

  1. Certificates + Qualifications. It should go without saying that this is a must have. This ensures they have met certain standards of professionalism and competence from a trustworthy organisation.
  2. Personality. Some people do well with positive reinforcement, while others like to get screamed at into doing a few extra reps. You might want to have a conversation or interview before you start training.
  3. Location. Lucky for all our members we are a mobile business! So we can come to you. This decision comes down to your own personal preference whether you prefer to train in our indoor location (Huntingtower gym), or at our outdoor location (Alma Park) OR from the privacy & comfort of your own living room/ backyard.
  4. Specialities. If you’re looking for something specific (Pilates, running, power lifting, boxing) you’ll want to work with a PT who specialises in that specific sport. They will have more expertise in that desired area, but chances are they’ll be more passionate about it.
  5. Availability. Find out their schedule, how far in advance will you need to book appointments, can you make up any missed sessions and what is the cancellation policy?
  6. Cost. Before you start making decisions sit down and think about your budget. Session prices depend on total of sessions, how many people training (1:1, 2:1, 3:1 or small group training) and method of payment (direct debit, 10/20 pack purchases).

Choosing the right PT can be a little hard. It’s a good idea to look out for a knowledgeable and experienced trainer who feels like the most natural fit for you. RIM Trainers are all fully qualified and are taking on new clients everyday, so if you have any questions about anything PT related – message us now!

Class Focus – Body 360

“BODY 360 – Proven sculpting methods to tone your body 360 degrees – use all the muscles, all the tools and all the planes of movement to tighten and tone”


There are three different planes of motion: sagittal, frontal, and transverse. Your body doesn’t move in one dimension. If it did, you wouldn’t be able to move your leg away from you, toward you, in front and behind you. Your body moves in three dimensions, and body 360’s training programs reflect that. Designing an exercise program that utilizes all planes of motion will help you as our clients train your body in the same manner that it moves in real life.

We try to think outside the box a little in this class at RIM. We like to focus on range of movement and also mobility. We focus on relative strength / calisthenic style moves, pilates based moves and resistance band work.

The satisfaction on your PT’s face after you tell them you’re sore from the workout 2 days ago. Are they for real? Are they the actual devil? How can someone be so evil and do such things to you.

Chloe & Shaz’s Trip

Hey guys we are back in Melbourne! We had an amazing time away for 2 weeks along with one other friend. We started in Ho Chi Minh for 3 nights, then got a plane to Hanoi. We stayed there for one night and then did the Ha Long Bay cruise for 1 night which was freaking incredible! After that we stayed at Hanoi for 2 more nights and then went off to Phu Quoc a small island which was surrounded with lots of mountains & dense tropical jungle for 6 nights. It was so special to see Vietnam as none of us had been before. Our highlights were Ho Chi Minh city, the city was HUGE and there was so much to do and we met loads of people! Another highlight was snorkelling and fishing followed by a visit to Fingernail Island in Phu Quoc – white sands and clear blue water was incredible! We both only got one training session in, as we wanted to come back fully rested & relaxed ready to get back into the swing of things!

Thanks for letting us share and we’re keen to train you guys again soon! 🙂

Class Focus: Metcon.

Smart Training. Metabolic conditioning. Heavy weights, short circuits  & cardio finishers to strip fat + gain strength. 

Metabolic Conditioning is a method of training that involves a very high work rate, using exercises designed to burn more calories during your workout and maximise the calories burned after your workout. With our RIM Metcon classes we like to include heavy weights, explosive and tough cardio. BUT short sets/rep and HIGH ROUNDS that involve challenging the total body, compound exercises and very short recovery intervals.

Metabolic Conditioning engages the large muscle groups in the body and makes use of structural and compound types of exercises. These require a maximum amount of energy as multiple joints and muscles are involved and utilised in the movement.

At the same time, it incorporates high-intensity training that will make your heart race and catch your breath. This is the reason why people who do MetCon bathe in their own sweat after each session.Because of this, you will feel the burn.
