It’s never too late to get fit CONTRARY to popular belief, personal trainers are not the gym junkies people think of. Take Anytime Fitness personal trainer, Tom Saunders, who started out personal training five years ago after suffering back injuries as a young guy. Now the 40-year-old is fit and loving life and wants to share that with his clients. “I played high level sports as a youngster and hurt my back at the age of 20 when I was landscaping. I had ten years of pain before they worked out what was wrong and now I want to help other people avoid the pain I went through,” says Tom, a mad keen surfer, dancer, and avid reader. Tom says it’s very simple to be fit and healthy. It just takes a little bit of encouragement from the right personal trainer. “I am currently at university finishing a double degree in physical education and health science; so that I can help my clients to understand better how to get their body working at its best. I love teaching people all about their posture and nutrition and basically how to look after themselves,” he said. Tom takes a rather holistic approach to personal training, saying that it’s not just about looking muscular and toned on the outside. “You can look fit externally, but its inside
that’s just as important. Each person is different so we sit down and does a full assessment – go through diet and exercise, hobbies and social activities, and work out the best program for each individual person.” Tom’s love of reading is what brought him to the book ‘Primal Blueprint’ by Mark Sisson. “I read this book and realised it was focusing on how our bodies are wired to function, and that we must work in the boundaries of what’s healthy and not moving to the extreme. It’s the whole body optimal health approach,” says Tom. “You can look healthy on the outside but you may not be healthy on the inside.” Tom trains the whole spectrum of clients, from young adults to the elderly, as well as a lot of work with special needs people. “I have clients with body image issues, people around my age who have just decided it’s time to look after themselves, young kids, sports teams, and weight loss clients,” says Tom, who writes individual programs for each, after looking at the background, posture and muscular imbalances, and nutritional imbalances. Living proof that it’s never too late to get fit, Tom is at Anytime Fitness in Mornington, Level 1, 105 Main Street, Mornington. Phone 5973 6667.
100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...
Message in a bottle finds way home Compiled by Melissa Walsh MESSRS A. Scott and Co. will hold their usual monthly sale at Tanti on Monday, when there will be a good muster of cattle, etc., as advertised. *** OWING to Tuesday next, November 2 (Cup Day), being proclaimed a public holiday there will only be the one delivery of letters—in the morning—at Frankston Post Office. There will also be only the morning despatch of mails. *** THE monthly meeting of the Frankston and Hastings Shire Council will be held at Somerville on Thursday next, at which tenders will be received for a number of works which are advertised in an other column. *** WE are pleased to note that Captain Sherlock has so far recovered from the severe injuries received by him while in camp at Seymour, that he has now left the hospital and is allowed to return to his home at Frankston. *** AT St Paul’s Church, Frankston, last Sunday, the whole of the collections were in aid of the Hospital Fund. The amount received (£4 6s 6d), was very gratifying — being more than has been given even at most prosperous times. *** THE preacher at St Paul’s Church Frankston, tomorrow (Sunday) night, will be Rev A. J. Thompson of Tyabb and Somerville. Rev G. A. Kitchen will be preaching at Tyabb, in connec-
tion with the Church Festival. *** ATTENTION is drawn to Messrs Brody and Mason’s advertisement in another column, of an extensive clearing sale of household furniture and sundries, which takes place today (Saturday) at their mart, Bay street, Frankston, where the goods have been brought from Oakleigh and district for convenience of sale. The sale is a large and miscellaneous one, and will commence at 2 o’clock punctually. *** THE Langwarrin Tennis Club has just completed another tournament for a prize donated by the club, the victor being Mr C. Ludwig. This is the second tournament this year. The previous one fell to Mr H. Carrs, the trophy being a very fine racket and press, the gift of the president of the club, Mr W. Williams, of Rupertstan. The arrangements were well carried out by the hon. sec., Miss Kelso. It is proposed to have an afternoon party today at the court when the trophy will be presented to Mr Ludwig. Arrangements are in progress for a return match with Clyde at an early date. *** AN interesting lecturette will be given in the Somerville Agricultural Hall on Friday evening next entitled, “The Errors and Graces of Speech,” “Literature and the War,” by Mr Robert Jones, Principal of the Individual Tuition College, Melbourne, the funds to be given to the Somerville Red Cross Society. Mr Jones is giving his services free of
expense to the society. From the title of the lecture it should prove intellectual and humorous, and those attending besides benefiting a worthy object will enjoy a pleasant and profitable evening. *** AN interesting lecture was delivered in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall on Thursday evening, by Professor Mudd, on behalf of the Methodist Home Mission Fund. The title of the lecture was “ Will we win this war”. The chair was occupied by Professor Adams, of Ormond College, and there was a good attendance, who were kept thoroughly interested for upwards of two hours. The lecturer was quite convinced that victory would eventually be won by the Allies, and based his belief on the superiority of the British both in numbers and valor, and also quoting ancient history in proof of his argument that might never yet overcome right, and that the Kaiser and his following would eventually have to bow to the inevitable. A hearty vote of thanks was accorded the Professor on the conclusion of the lecture. *** THE annual installation and investiture of officers of the New Frankston Lodge, No 217, took place on Friday last in the Lodge Room. The ceremony was performed by grand lodge officers. There was also a good attendance of members from sister lodges. The following officers were duly in stalled:—W.M. Bro W. P. Mason;
I.P.M. Wor Bro G. May; S.M. Bro J. A. Benson; J.W. Bro W. Armstrong; Treasurer, Bro. F. G. Plummer; Secretary, Bro, Mark Brody; DC., Wor. Bro. W. H. Schultz; Almoner, Wor. Bro. T. S. Robinson; S.D., Bro. W. M. Hanton; J.D., Bro F. G. Hanton ; Inner Guard. Bro E M. M’Comb; Tyler, Wor Bro T. Nichols; Stewards, Bros C. E. Wood, W. M. Billings and S. B. Fletcher. At the conclusion of the business the brethren were invited to a banquet, at which the usual masonic toasts were duly honored and responded to. A good programme of songs and recitations was rendered during the evening, and a most enjoyable time was spent. *** WHILE walking along the beach, near the Mile Bridge, Frankston, a few days ago, Mr J. Reynolds picked up a sealed bottle, and on opening it found a sheet of paper with the following writing on it :—”Private Westaback.— Received bottle of wine, saved six lives. Return bottle to owner, Mrs. O. Windley, Empire Theatre, Coventry street, South Melbourne—Love to Ethel— G. O Downing, S. Warwick, D. Mc’Cormick.” Mr Reynolds followed out the instructions and forwarded the note to address named, and received the following letter in reply.—”Empire Theatre, Coventry St, South Melbourne.—Dear Sir.— Just a line to let you know we received the note you found in the bottle. It was thrown off the transport — last Monday week by my husband. I
sent him a parcel just before the boat sailed, and the bottle of wine was in it. I suppose they thought there might be a chance of someone finding it, I was very pleased to get it. The lady it was addressed to was his sister, and she gave it to me. The names of the men on the back were his mates, I expect he put them there to let us know who had it. Thanking you for your kindness. I remain yours.—E. Westerbeck.” *** IN response to the appeal from Gallipoli for Sugar Bags, the Frankston branch will receive and forward to the Melbourne Town Hall any bags that are available from this district.
