ie Johnso Q & A with Jod

RK: What are the most rewarding aspects of your role as Head Coach at Skateaway? JJG: I thoroughly enjoy watching and assisting those new to skating as they progress from their first experience in the rink, usually spent clinging to the side rails!, progressing through our various classes and emerging later as a competent skater. As part of my role I oversee all our coaches at Skateaway and we work together to ensure every skater has the best opportunity to reach their maximum potential in the rink. RK: You have a very impressive record of personal achievements in skating, what have been the highlights? JJG: I have represented Australia at both Oceania and World Championship level and have coached other skaters in these competitions as well so I have been able to experience both sides of the events, as a competitor and as a coach. I travel regularly intra-state and inter-state to conduct seminars and have been lucky enough to travel to New Zealand to conduct seminars there. One of my best trips was last year when I travelled to the U.S.A to undergo some intense training under some of the worlds top coaches, an amazing experience and can’t wait for the chance to go back again! RK: Can you tell us about any goals you still have to achieve in your personal or professional life?

JJG: This year I am enrolled to commence a Personal Trainers course together with studies in nutrition, boxing and a Level 1 Sports Trainers course. I am passionate about all areas of health and fitness and these courses will expand my expertise in the industry and also benefit my colleagues and skaters. RK: Any advice for young skaters dreaming of a career in the industry?

JJG: This is a fantastic industry to be involved in and so rewarding! Young skaters that aspire to become professional skating coaches should start by learning as much as they can within the sport and then approach a qualified, accredited coach to undertake a mentoring program. Skating is a very artistic sport but it’s also highly technical therefore it’s vital to stay knowledgeable about the latest techniques at all times. RK: Why do you believe skating is such a popular pastime?

JJG: Skating is so popular because you get fit doing something fun! It’s also a very family friendly sport, everyone can skate, and age and ability don’t really matter. Here at Skateaway we have skaters from age 2 to 82 so it really is a sport for everybody! To ensure everyone has a great time skating I recommend attending a few classes as a beginner, those new to skating learn basic skills a lot quicker under qualified instructors which in turn creates a more positive and fun skating experience.

Skating for fitness Cardiovascular exercise has the stigma of being drudgery, not a fun activity, but, this is not always the case. Roller skating is a perfect example of a fun form of cardio exercise. Many of us can remember those days of skating for hours as kids. It wasn’t exercise, it was fun!

Developing the habit of daily cardiovascular exercise is important for our kids and when the activity is fun, it becomes easier for them to form those habits. Kids are more likely to work out for longer periods of time when the activity is enjoyable and that makes skating perfect to get the kids off the couch and getting their heart rates up and pumping without them even realizing it!

elbow pads and wrist guards are recommended to the beginning skater, since falls could, and usually do, happen!” Skating is a fun way to burn calories and lose weight, so go ahead and give it a try; you might even forget you’re getting a work out! Get rolling at Skateaway, Centro Albany, 700 Albany Creek Road, Albany Creek. phone (07) 3325 1711 or go online at

*offer valid till 28/02/10. $15 massage is for 30 mins A Must have for people with diabetes (Anthony Moldavskiy) I LOVE this Bed!!!!! (Nancy Gulick) I felt fatigued before jumping on the Migun massage bed. The bed gave me a spurt of energy that i havent felt in a long time........ I had a pain in my right shoulder which travelled down my right side down to my buttocks/tailbone before I started on the bed, now I dont have it anymore, after only 1 month on the bed, I have been carrying that pain around for nearly 4 years. I’m even sleeping better, i have a pool at home but didnt get into it for about a year, a lot of my muscles had gone dorment, the bed have stimulated those muscles. I love the Bed!

When I began using the Migun bed last September my blood sugar level was 160 and today it is 90, welcome change for someone with diabetes, but not only that i have lost 20 pounds. Thankyou very much for this health boost. It Works for me (Pat Malone) I started using Migun purely for relaxation which was enough to encourage me to purchase multiple 10 session passes. I then found however that my chronically sore back which incapacitated me 3-4 times a year, no longer did so. Whether it is the relaxation process or the manipulation of the muscles and spine that gives relief is unknown, but it works for me

Back to school tips Keep it Together Socks...arrrgghh.... where do they go? I get tired of having to sort, which socks belong to which kid, so you know those mesh lingerie bags? Have one for each kid and hang it on the outside of his or her hampers. When they take their socks off they go right into the bag -- both socks. When it is time to do laundry all you have to do is zip up the bags and throw them in the washer and dryer.”
