When it comes to training, cardio isn’t enough!

When it comes to training, cardio isn’t enough!

Ladies, the weather is heating up which means bikini season is just around the corner! There’s already temptations of replacing gym sessions with beach walks. However, giving up resistance training could cause more damage than you think!

Why resistance train?


Resistance training is crucial to maintaining a proper fitness routine. Your muscles will waste away without it. Once you’ve hit your twenties, muscle loss increases rapidly unless you work to maintain or build it. if you don’t use it, you lose it.

Only a few weeks off resistance training can cause muscle loss (if you’ve ever broken a bone you would already know this!).

MOTIVATION ACTION PLAN: Feeling unmotivated?

Have you found yourself constantly procrastinating, pressing snooze or feel yourself just being lazy?

Then stop reading, I can’t help you.

Jokes 😂 but seriously I can put in my two cents worth now that can help you but at the end of this post it’s up to you to activate the advice/suggestions I’ve made.

If you’re feeling unmotivated, lazy or always finding excuses... the truth is you just don’t care enough. 🤷‍♀️

When you know exactly what you want and it is honestly IMPORTANT to you... the motivation comes easy. You won’t make excuses and you’ll find ways to make it happen.

Being a personal trainer I’m in the gym all day most days so my energy output is pretty high compared to most. My long term goal at the moment is to compete at IFBB in the bikini division in October next year, so at the moment, being in off season my trainings all about GROWTH. Building up my glutes, hamstrings, upper back and shoulders to create the X shape that the judges look for on the day. I ride my bike the 15 minutes to and from Surry hills everyday to get my body moving before my first client, I also don’t like public transport much and who wouldn’t want to be able to eat a bit more due to the extra output! I also do my strength training 5 days a week which consists of 3 leg focused days and 2 upper body days. My gym, Fitness Playground also offers Pilates and yoga so I try and get in to one of those a week to ground me a bit.

The Wilshin sisters finally join forces!

The Wilshin sisters finally join forces!

November 03, 2019 6 Comments

Bianca and Yasmin Wilshin are two passionate creatives from Newport Beach in Sydney. Both determined high-school graduates who completed their university degrees at UTS, Yasmin majoring in finance and Bianca in Marketing (Ying and Yang!, right?!). Whilst completing their degrees, Bianca set up The Hessian Collection, a swimwear business that had been a dream of theirs for many years. Since graduating, they’ve both accumulated work experience in their fields, however, Bianca’s business has also gained major traction, particularly amongst Sydney’s northern beaches ladies. So their decision to leave their full-time 9 to 5 jobs, and create a unique swimmer company together has been an inevitable outcome.

These twins have worked extremely hard to end up where they are today, but they certainly aren’t stopping here. The rebranding of Bianca’s business, The Hessian Collection, to a company owned by both twins now called Archie and Wolf represents a new unified phase for the brand. With both sisters focusing on the brand, the sky really is their limit. Stay tuned!

Just Knead it: 4 tips to take care of your body

June 30, 2019

Working towards your neutral posture, as I mentioned above, promotes balance within the opposing muscle groups and leads to the muscular and skeletal system working free of dysfunction. Meaning that when one muscle group is too short, it creates a lengthening effect on the opposing muscle groups. Eventuating in these lengthened muscles to working overtime to bring the body back to neutral because the shortened muscles have pulled the body out of this neutral alignment.

The gorgeous Jazmin leary is here to share her tips on how to improve digestion. Take it away Jaz...

Our gut is absolutely central to health and overall wellbeing.

The term gut basically refers to digestion. Digestion is important for breaking down food into nutrients, which the body uses and absorbs for energy, growth, and cell repair. Food and liquid must be changed into smaller molecules of nutrients before the blood absorbs them and carries them to cells throughout the body.

Archie & Wolf care

All swimwear is assembled from the finest imported material's, and whilst suits can be worn in pools and oceans, they are not designed for extensive physical activity.

Care instructions:

KURTEF care

925 Sterling Silver is a relatively soft metal. In order to keep jewellery looking shiny and new in the years to come, special care is required.
Avoid direct contact with water and chemical products e.g. soap and perfume. The stones may also get effected by being in damp conditions.
Do not wear your jewellery when in the ocean, swimming pool, spa, sauna/steam room or while bathing or showering.

Rings can be easily exposed to collisions with other surfaces which creates dents and small wounds. Over time, these will slide into each other and the surface and the underside of the ring to become "softer" and the cuts become less visible. Scratches and small bulks are not considered a defect, but just a sign of normal wear and tear for silver.

All stones are fragile and might break or chip if they collide with a hard surface.
Our items are treated with an anti-tarnish treatment. However, sterling silver may still eventually tarnish (oxidize) over time. To avoid this as much as possible, gently wipe your jewellery clean with the polish cloth that is provided after each wear to remove any dirt and oils.

To avoid scratches please store each item individually in provided KURTEF jewellery pouches. This also helps avoiding any exposure from direct sunlight which might cause the jewellery and stone to fade.

KURTEF returns

Please ensure you choose the correct design and size as products purchased from KURTEF are non refundable.

However, if for any reason you are not satisfied or you have an issue with your purchase please send us an email within 24 hours of receiving the product to outline the situation, and we will try our best to resolve it!
