Kickbike: Kick Your Butt into Serious shape!!

Developed as a cross-training device for elite Nordic athletes 9 years ago, the KICKBIKE is arguably the best aerobic workout available.

Its fusion of acute performance and European style encourages easy transition from gentle broad-walk gliding, to a full-on total body, aerobic workout. It's about spirited people, a funky motion and a liberating sensation.

Even if your workout is the gentle broad-walk stroll, you can still expect to stretch the Hamstring, strengthen and tone your abdominals, lower back, quadriceps and calf muscles, as well as trim down and firm up your legs and buttocks! Not bad results from just having a bit of fun.

KICKBIKING, generates a low impact foot strike, as your body weight is principally supported by the stationary leg. This significantly reduces shock to the knees and lower extremities. Injury prevention is further enhanced by not fixing you to a specific position, which reduces muscle stiffness, strain and the chance of injury. All you need to do is remember to change legs regularly. Kickbike is easy to ride and has good control and manoueverability.

The Brisbane Lions and some of Queenslands Athletic coaches have recently purchased Kickbikes for specific targeting of the glute, hip flex, and core stability strength.

So forgo the nip and tuck, and kick your butt into shape on a KICKBIKE. It's the simplest, safest and most enjoyable way to reduce fat and/or improve your fitness!

Fat Loss Nutraceuticals: Do They Really Work!

In recent years there has been a notable increase in the advertising of nutraceuticals promising to accelerate fat loss. Do any of these products actually work? Well some do but many don't. Here's how to tell the wheat from the chaf.

There are classes of 'Fat burners': 1. Fat Metaboliser supplements 2. Nutrient Absorption/Storage blockers 3. Thyroid function boosters 4. Thermogenesis boosters

Fat metabolisers tend to be the cheapest but least effective fat burners. They include basic food nutrients such as L-Carnitine, Choline and Inositol which are involved in fat oxidation processes. However, they contribute very little to 'losing fat'.

Nutrient absorbtion/storage blockers like HCA, Phaseolamin and Chitosan are fatally flawed. Many products are woefully under dosed but the main problem is that most people abuse the privilege of having the fattening effect of overeating 'blocked'.

Thyroid function boosters like Guggul and Forskolin help keep diets and thermogenic boosters working effectively. They don't do the work for you but they do help your work pay off.

Thermogenesis boosters stimulate the Adrenal glands and/or receptors usually via the synergistic combination of Caffeine and Synephrine. These ingredients literally force your body to waste fat energy to make you warmer. However, their effectiveness is dose dependant and most products offered to the mainstream are chronically under dosed.

Fat burners undoubtedly work. High potency Thermogenics enable our clients typically lose fat 100-300% faster! But most mainstream products are far too weak, incomplete and misdirected to help the majority of people. Come to Bio Logic Labs and we will custom fit the best product and diet for you.

Laughter is the best medicine!

What is this?

When the waitress in a New York City restaurant brought him the soup du jour, the Englishman was a bit dismayed. "Good heavens," he said, "what is this?" "Why, it's bean soup," she replied. "I don't care what it has been," he sputtered. "What is it now?"
