Treat your world as a Playground!

New Zealand is a beautiful, unique country with easy access to many National parks, Pristine Beaches, and Bike Trails.

Active recovery should be part of everyone's fitness regime. Try to include some light intensity training (LIT) once a week to help stimulate muscle recovery and provide stress release. Active Recovery can be anything from walking, swimming, biking or even taking a nap. Auckland to me is the ultimate playground for active recovery!

My top 5 activities in Auckland for active recovery include The Rangitoto Summit Walk, Stand Up Paddle Boarding in Takapuna, Arch Hill Mountain Bike Trails, Float Culture and Yoga.

Shape In The City- Okura Bush Walk

This three-hour trek, which runs through Okura Bush Scenic Reserve, begins at Haigh Road and takes you over clifftops and through bush up to Stillwater and back again. It's only a 10-minute drive from Albany, but you could be forgiven for thinking you were further off the beaten path.
