INSPO Fitness Journal August 2017


Everything from nutrition, beauty, home and workplace wellbeing to health, performance – and so much more.


Mother Nature has thrown everything

at us recently; glorious

summer-like days, torrential

downpours and flooding, and hailstones

and snow.

So if you’re thinking the indoors is a

good option for a new winter sport, we introduce

you to Futsal, which is fast taking

off around New Zealand with all ages.

An enthusiastic group of local players

are keen to get newbies involved. Among

them is our cover star Brayden Lissington,

who is not only a Futsal White (representing

New Zealand), but is also responsible

for promoting the sport.

If you prefer a different

kind of challenge,

check out our guide to

the upcoming Direct

Group Uniforms Hamilton

Half Marathon.

Whether you want to

clock up your first half

marathon or get the

kids involved, there are plenty of options

for all fitness levels. With another month

remaining until winter is officially over,

we’ve got some expert advice on how to

beat the winter blues and to keep in top

health. Plus if you’ve ever been intimidated

by yoga, check out Sarah Harry’s attitude

and tips to ensure all ages and sizes can

enjoy the activity.

Whatever you choose to do, stop and

enjoy the moment. I’m eagerly looking

forward to another rare day off, planning

to return to Raglan beach and try and

recapture more amazing moments like

that pictured.

1 / Dan Franks

Not only is Dan Franks a New Zealand

BMX rider – he’s also helping other

Kiwi athletes and businesses promote

themselves on a global stage. Together

with partner Nicky Felton, the pair

are the minds behind Play Creative;

specialising in videography. “We’re big

on helping passionate people communicate

their dreams to the rest of the

world,” he says.

2 / Ann Kingi

Anna is a busy mum of three children

(aged under six) with a BA

(with double major) in Education and

Anthropology from the University of

Auckland. She is fascinated by the

psychology of fitness and admits she

is a recent fitness convert, thanks to

her husband (an ex-policeman, crossfit

and personal trainer) opening a gym

in Mangawhai. Her interest in fitness,

psychology and mental wellness sees

her spending considerable time thinking

about the benefits and challenges

of ‘getting moving’. She also enjoys

eating and preparing ‘real food’ (her

kids eat sauerkraut by the handful)

and is keen to raise them to be confident,

strong and active.

3 / Masanori Udagawa

Originally from Japan, Masanori has

been living in Wellington for the past

18 years. “I was initially attracted to

photography because images have the

ability to transcend language barriers.

I specialise in photographing sports

and music but enjoy photographing

fashion and nature when I can.” Masanori

provides photos to media outlets

in New Zealand and Japan.
