    Wanting to play football?

    Hey guys, Mitchelton City League will begin their training in December with a look to realy kick it off early next year. We are looking for any interested players that will be committed to a full season of football, training is twice a week (can have discussions about a lesser commitment) and games on the weekend. We play in divisions 3,5 and 7. We are especially in need of a couple quality goal keepers, so get in contact if you are interested.

    An Englishman in Melbourne!

    My husband and I have just moved to Melbourne from London with work. We are both in our early 30's (no children) and are renting a house in Hawksburn Village Prahran. We are enjoying the weather, work and lifestyle and looking to make friends. We enjoy running, keeping fit and also socialising. If anyone has any suggestions on where to go or fancy meeting for a drink, message me,
  3. Hi, Once upon a time I was young & fit and ran marathons and had friends (Aussies) I ran with. Now I'm less young (60 to be precise), have various injuries that restrict me to a couple of kilometers on a treadmill (at the moment) and my running mates have moved away or given up. I still train regularly - swimming in summer, weights and cycling in winter and some running - but the lure of my warm bed early in the morning in winter means I often don't exercise as much as I'd like to. It would be great to have one or more training partners to motivate me (i.e. get me up early) and help each other - better still if they were Poms so we could talk about intellectual things like football, pubs and beer. Age and sex are irrelevent, but it would be good if we had similar levels of fitness and some goals to aim at. Mine are to run 7km again in a reasonable time (say 32 minutes), to do the Sydney to Woolongong bike ride in November, do lots of ocean swims next season (but I don't swim until September because I'm too much of a wimp to swim when it's cold outside) and lose some of the 18 kilos I've put on since my last marathon (in 1987, so not exactly recent). I train before work in the mornings and live in Leichhardt, work in North Sydney and I'm a member of North Sydney pool/gym so the inner west, CBD or North Sydney are convenient locations. Personal info; work as a consultant, (i.e. irregularly), been here 32 years, born Hartlepool, support Swindon Town as well as Hartlepool United (I go for the glamour clubs), been back to the UK lots on business & hols, happily married. And yes, it can be hard to make friends here - I still find I have more in common (particularly humour) with Poms. Cheers, Steve Hall
  4. Hello All I am not training as often as I should and starting to loose shape after 3 months of not training and because I am out drinking too much been new in town etc. Don't as such need anyone to push me just a someone to workout with, knowing I have a routine then I am likely to stick to it. I am 32, Male, Straight (don't laugh every guy iv spoken too in the Gym thinks Err or Ohh as I start a conversation) happy to workout with male or female and any fitness level. I am a Fitness First member and can use any Gym. PS I am not a gym nut just staying healthy and Morning or Evening but Mornings work better with work and socialising etc. Thanks Alex
  5. Hi guys, Just wondering if anyone is familiar enough with Perth to be able to recommend a family friendly fitness centre/gym in Perth. The kind of place I'm thinking of would have tennis courts, pool, gym and gym classes, maybe creche and mother-toddler classes etc. Any ideas? Thanks everyone. Kate.

    Careers in Fitness

    Mrs I is a fully qualified personal trainer and sports therapist and I am thinking along the same lines as a second career. We always hear about the Oz way of life being very active - does anyone have any thoughts about this line of work? We are not really worried about the money aspects, it is more lifestyle and job satisfaction that appeal - I really fancy wearing shorts for the rest of my life! Grateful for your thoughts!
