Good Morning and Happy Tuesday to you all. Another stellar day in Melbourne today with some warm weather. Remember to keep that water bottle next to you. You'll be grateful you did when you're in Beast Mode this evening training your Tuesday away. #elev8_mma #springtime #hydrate

Four years ago today Daniel picked up a set of keys to a run down factory site down at 25 Kolora Road, West Heidelberg. To say that people thought we were nucking futs with this idea of opening a Martial Arts and Fitness Centre is an understatement. Don't get me wrong, people wished us the best, but our abilities were doubted and we have most certainly had our 'tests'. Someone very close to us today made a comment about how nobody likes their job... except for us. When I tell you that it has been a hard road, believe it. But when people around you remind you that  most people hate their job, you know you made the right decision to take a leap of faith.  #elev8_mma #dreamjob #success #australianeliteteam

You don't have time? Or is it just not a priority? We're all busy. We all have commitments. Putting your health and well being at the top of your priorities does not make you a self centred person. In a week there are 168 hours, so plan to make yourself a priority for a few of those hours. Goodness knows you do it for those around you. 💛 #elev8_mma #priorities #goals #selfcare #teamalphafit #lifeathletic #jaggad

If I had a dollar for everytime I saw someone skipping their warm up reps....I'd be on line shopping like a boss right now. If we can't get the pattern of the movement right with just the bar on our back, why load weight? Warm up with purpose. Put the empty Bar on your back and squat with it as if it is your 85% RM. Recruit all those muscles you would if it was heavy and listen to your body. If you skip this step, you have no idea if your body has any aches, pains or niggles and instead you find out the hard way when you're in the pit driving up with 90kg on your back. And then "I broke my back. It's spinal" 🤣 #elev8_mma #squatwell #warmupwithpurpose @nikkigk @teamjaggad @alphafit_aus

The Kettle Bell Swing is a movement we often program in our Functional Fitness Classes. Proper technique is essential to rule out injury as with any lifting. We strive to teach our members the importance of recruiting their glutes and driving the bell forward with their hips rather than recruiting the arms as fatigue sets in. Such an easy set up (unlike the set up for deadlifts with a bar and plates) and so much bang for your buck in terms of increasing strength in all of the core stabiliser muscles and posterior chain and because of the swinging motion, you get both an aerobic and anaerobic workout. Winning! Young rooster Josh here demonstrating fine form with his hips thrusting the weight forward, core tight, chin tuckedin and straight back. Oh and for all our BJJ crew...two words: GRIP STRENGTH 👌😜 #ELEV8_MMA #kettlebell

Thanks to @cratespecialtycoffee for my cute as a button keep cup from @frankgreen_official Oh and Happy Birthday to the amazing barista Bea today #elev8_mma #cratespecialitycoffee #lesswaste #frankgreen
I'm all about Dat Brace 👌😉. A good lift, press or squat starts with your breath. #elev8_mma #brace #diaphramicbreathing #backsquat
We often go back to basics and learn how to execute these movements with precision timing and reliability. Without a solid base in the fundamentals, progression can be hindered. Great class last night with our BJJ leader, instructor and friend Vincenzo.  #elev8_mma #australianeliteteam #panpacstraining #fundamentals #whereareyoucarlos 🥋

Holidays are the best. Giving yourself permission to let go and enjoy yourself without planning or prepping meals is a wonderful reward after being so focused for so long on your goals. However the holiday is over and it was incredible. The BEST! Our batteries are recharged, our hearts full and we have amazing memories as a family to look back on for years ahead. I'm not quite ready to start meal prepping and writing goals yet (maybe tomorrow) but I'm ready to thank my body for all that it did for me in the lead up to the IBJJF Championships and for not falling apart once the partying started. A grateful plate for breakfast of raw, fresh food and green juice with home grown produce. A huge thankyou to those who held the fort for us whilst we were in Japan and to all of our amazing and understanding members for preserving with a limited timetable so we could get the time we so desperately needed together as a family. Have I mentioned how fricken full of gratitude we are? We are planning on showcasing some amazing pics and vids from the ASIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS this week, so stay tuned and HAPPY SUNDAY. Can't wait to see you all this week! Love and Peace Nikki, Dan and the minis ❤️ #elev8_mma #rawfood #reset #holidayisover #foodismedicine

This is Daniel. Head Coach and owner of ELEV8 MMA. He is also the father of 2 incredible boys and husband of mine for nine fine years. Last week my son's teacher was asking me if there was someone we could use as an example to him to show how pushing through adversity and practising coping strategies will lead to much success in life. It was brought to my attention later that this said person is actually his Dad. I knew this of course, but sometimes you need to be reminded by outsiders of how good you actually have it. 
Daniel is the fun Dad. The one that all kids want to be around, whether they are athletically skilled or not. He is the Dad that can turn frowns upside down in 20 seconds flat. The Dad that gets his hands dirty with all aspects of raising our children. He makes all the birthday cakes, bookweek costumes, teaches his boys how to play music by ear, cook waffles, how to snorkel, spearfish and of course how to execute a perfect rear naked choke. 
We weren't given the easy path in life. However Daniel's ability to turn every heartbreaking situation into a learning experience and a new path for growth is by far his best Daddy skill. Your boys are still convinced that you have magical powers and that they have their very own super hero.
Happy Father's Day Coach - we love you this much 🤗🤗🤗 #elev8_mma #fathersday2017

Because it's SUNDAY! Because it's raining and we are still in bed. Because we are now in single digits counting down to fly to Tokyo. Because I am not my 2 best friends who are slogging out 33ks on a treadmill right now because it's hailing and they have a long run scheduled on their NYC MARA training plan (I love those crazy cats😆) So the message here is to put aside the negativity and really appreciate those little wins, because too many people are going without those little pleasures you are taking for granted. Be grateful you got to Sunday; I sure as hell am. ❤️ #elev8_mma #blessed #gratitude #sundaysleepins

If you only work on the movements you enjoy and avoid your weaknesses, don't question why you aren't improving. It's a no brainer...do the boring rehab movements, do every set of the accessory movements and for the love of your poor traps, learn how to engage those lazy Lats. 😉😝😩💪💪 #elev8_mma #rehab #pullups #krocrows #gainz

None of us are invincible. Some can handle pressure really well and others look like they handle it well but suffer in silence. Injury and then illness took me out for the last few months. It wasn't until I was laying in bed unable to move that I realised how strong I am. It sounds ridiculous, but when you go a thousand miles an hour everyday and have so many balls in the air simultaneously, it's hard to appreciate how hard you work and how hard you love your tribe. Laying in bed with glandular fever, my business partner/husband over seas working and trying to run 2 businesses and still being a present Mum made me step outside of myself and take a bird's eye view. I'm fricken strong! Why do we always highlight what we struggle with? Shine a spotlight on the things you do well. Everyday remind yourself of your qualities. Don't wait for others to approve, just pat yourself on the back for doing the best damn job you can each day. It's taken me over 2 months to recover enough to start training again. Am I ready to PB and push loads of volume?  Hell No, but one foot in front of the other. Day after day and making sure I keep my cup filled to the right level (physically and mentally) I will get there. Where ever 'there' actually is. Let's just enjoy the DOMS at less than 50% RM deadies for now. Today was a good day 😋 #elev8_mma #deadlifts #recovery #rehab #mumsthatliftanddoeverythingelse @nikkigk

7 Days of CALM complete. 💆‍♀️🙋‍♀️✌💛Do  you even meditate? I hear the same answers so often...."sitting still makes my skin crawl and I get anxious" 
Those who struggle to still their mind and body need to learn meditation most of all. 
We focus so much of our energy on squat patterns, activations and perfecting MMA submissions and when we fail to pay attention to our sympathetic nervous system we can become very overwhelmed by stress, experience depression, become fatigued and experience injuries. Not to mention lack of gains in our program. 
Meditation activates our parasympathetic nervous system which affects blood pressure, breathing rate, heart rate and regulates all of our fight or flight functions. Along with increasing our sleep hours these 2 LIFE SKILLS are so often left unaddressed. Cheaper than supplements and osteopathic/chiropractic treatments... The app I use for daily meditation even sends me a reminder if I haven't logged in for the day. 
Sweet dreams and rejuvenating meditations to you all.
