Programming for health, vitality and longevity

We have an assortment of programs that range in frequency and skill.

If you think about stress, we as humans have an ‘optimal stress zone’. Too low and you’ll get no results. Too high and you’ll get chronic inflammation, which leads to chronic fatigue and adrenal fatigue. Neither of which are fun. In addition to this, each day we add stress to our bucket from things like training, work, study and food… and we need to empty some of that stress out of the bucket before it overflows. We do this by ‘working in’. Working in is a conscious practice that is energy giving instead of taking. Things that help this are: breath work, sauna, passive stretching, yoga, massage, cold therapy, meditation and floatation therapy. 

Trying to balance working in and working out is where Ultra Instinct comes in. We have a finely tuned approach that works to combat training stress with the right amount of working in that can be practiced on a daily basis. This promotes better sleep, increased energy, better arousal levels towards training, increased recovery speed and decreased injury rates. Working in also assists immunity, which in turn will help in the lead up to events, where probability of sickness can increase. 

It’s time to ascend.

about james

top CrossFitter in Australia

5th Best crossfitter in the world

From a young age, James was extremely competitive. Starting as young as 5, James’ first endeavour into the sporting field was little athletics. From there, he found a love for Rugby Union, travelling interstate at 16 to compete in a high level and to ultimately work towards his goal of playing for Australia. To assist him with this, James found CrossFit.

Over time, his accessory work in CrossFit took over and he found himself in the gym working new skills and trying to improve his benchmark scores more than he was on the rugby field. In 2012, James tried his luck at the CrossFit Open, placing 47th and earning himself a spot at the Australian CrossFit Regional Competition. Going in with no expectations and coming out with a 9th place, the hunger for CrossFit success began.

In 2013, James set up his affiliate, CrossFit Mode to help support his dreams of making the CrossFit Games. After placing 11th in 2013, 4th in 2014, 13th in 2015 – James finally made the CrossFit Games placing 2nd at regionals in 2016. in 2017, 2018 and 2019 he has placed 1st at the Regional/Sanctional events, earning him 4 consecutive years at the CrossFit Games. He has placed 26th, 27th and 17th respectively, and this season took out his best placing yet of 5th at the World CrossFit Games, earning himself the title of the 5th Fittest Man on Earth.

about Jenna

Jenna Louise “The Jennarator” Douros has been an athlete since childhood; from BMX racing, trick blading and athletics, to competitive gymnastics. She’s always had the competitive edge wired deep within and molded herself to be someone who valued success, discipline and determination. She’s fuelled with drive, hunger and will; and she thrives on thoroughly educating herself in everything that interests her. She doesn’t allow herself to set limits because she can, and will, do it all.

Jenna’s background

For 10 years, while Jenna was working in the public sector, she owned her own dog grooming business, before taking on a spray tanning business and studying graphic design in her spare time. Once she had accrued her long service leave, she took time off to study her Master Certification in Fitness and Nutrition Coaching (along with many other things!) and soon realised that she was on a mission to not only better herself, but to do what she could to better the world. 

Jenna is an accomplished individual, to say the least. From competing on Ninja Warrior, to being a trusted brand ambassador for highly reputable global organisations (including Gold’s Gym and MTV) and a covergirl for Oxygen Mag as well as Womens’ Health and Fitness (just to name a few); she’s still chasing the wins. 

Her leap of faith to pursue a full time career in the health and fitness industry was just the beginning. She created an online platform with global reach, which opened up endless opportunities to positively impact people’s lives. As a fitness expert, master trainer, nutrition coach, athlete, business owner, ambassador and founder of the Jenna Louise brand, she aims to help people find ways to challenge themselves every day; to help boost their physical and mental health; their confidence, well-being, self-worth, knowledge and values. 

As a multi-discipline and performance athlete, Jenna refers to her style of training as “hybrid”. She loves integrating many different disciplines and methodologies, and this is exactly what she’s bringing YOU through HIIT FIT.

about John

John Lindsey has dedicated the last five years to improving his movement capacity. In grad school, he realised his body was broken. He couldn’t touch his toes or squat past parallel, and he suffered severe back pain after most workouts.  

He changed his perspective on physical practice and started putting an emphasis on daily mobility work. Before long, his body started moving like it should and he was able to dedicate more of his focus on developing skills and challenging his body-mind connection.  

Mobility is John’s passion. He works on and researches it every day, and is excited to be able to share this research and experience with Ultra Athletes.
