Bodyology has had an enormous start to 2013..... Its been great having the Dandenong Rangers girls training with us under Mic's guidance on the gym floor and in the Altitude Chamber, making their way into the Finals. The Box Hill Hawks have been training hard in Altitude with Ben and gearing up for another solid season. Andy's been monitoring the Richmond Tigers boys' condition closely with the Bodpod over the preseason. Ben's been keeping up the Bodyology reputation of practising what we preach by pulling in a 9:02 Ironman performance in Melbourne. We've helped Freddie Tukes gain the Australian Welterweight Championship through his intense training in the Altitude chamber and we're happy to have Sam Soliman prepping with us for his next fight also................ heaps still to come in 2013

Ben, Mic and Andy wish all Bodyology followers a happy and safe festive season. We have had a huge finish to 2012 seeing the Dandenong Rangers (WNBL) training hard under Michael's guidance in the gym and the Altitude Chamber, the Box Hill Hawks (VFL) trying there hand in the Altitude Chamber for a solid start to the pre-season with Ben keeping them on their toes, and the Richmond Tigers (AFL) and Melbourne Rebels (Super Rugby) having their body composition tracked with Andy and the BODPOD.

2012 has seen some amazing talent through our doors from elite teams and Professional Athletes, to Amateurs and Development Squads and our weekend warriors and weight loss clients who just want to learn the right way to approach things.

Thanks to all of our followers and we look forward to seeing you in the gym next year.

Thanks to satisfied Altitude and Analysis client Stewart Lopez for his kind words:

"Thanks so much for not just today, but the last 4 weeks, you guys are serious professionals. What I have learnt over the past few weeks is exactly what I have been looking for. Since being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes 3 years ago I have taken a serious interest in my health and fitness,and  in a strange way having diabetes has got me on the fitness path, which most 45 year olds are not on. Combine that with a general interest in cycling and the mix was perfect. I have read a lot over the past 3 years about what you guys are about, most of it confusing, and the tests today put so much into perspective, and gave me clarity. There is no doubt you guys are a class act, take your work seriously, and the 3 of you should be proud of what you have achieved. I have spoken and referred many others to you, and must say many of the more serious riders are aware of what you are about."

Bodyology was named as a National Finalist in the Commonwealth Banks Better Business Booster Small Business Awards. Chosen as the Victoria / Tasmanian finalist Bodyology competed against 4 other businesses for the title. Unfortunately we didn't take the title, however the recognition, support and business mentoring from the Commonwealth Bank team made for a great experience.
