Zucchini & Almond Mini Muffins – KERRIE FITNESS #kezfit

Ingredients

• 1 grated zucchini (1 standard zucchini)

• 250g almond spread (1 jar)

• 1/4 cup maple syrup (or agave)

• 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar (with the mother!)

• 1/4 teaspoon pink himalayan sea salt

• 1/2 teaspoon bi-carb soda

• 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

• 1 teaspoon vanilla bean (or extract)

• 1/2 Tablespoon chia seeds

• 2 eggs, lightly beaten with a fork

• 25g 85% cocoa dark chocolate, chopped

Method

1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C

2. Olive oil spray 2 mini muffin trays (24 holes) (these silicon ones from K-Mart are amazing as you can carefully pop the muffins out once they’re cooled)

3. Grate the zucchini

4. Chop the chocolate

5. Lightly beat the eggs

6. In a medium mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients, except the dark chocolate and stir until well combined. Then gently stir in the dark chocolate.

7. Carefully 3/4 fill each muffin hole with the mixture.

8. Bake for approximately 12-16 minutes (depending on your oven). You will see the tops rise. (They will deflate a little once out of the oven cooling) Insert a cake skewer or a toothpick to see if it out comes out clean without any batter.

9. Allow muffins to cool in trays for approximately 5 minutes. Remove from trays and cool completely on a wire racks.

10. Serve fresh and pop the remaining mini muffins in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 4 months. Be sure to place baking paper in between the mini muffins for easy removal from the freezer (and so you’re not tempted to eat 4 when they’re stuck together!!!) Simply set aside for a little to reach room temperature or if you’re impatient like myself, lol, wrap in paper towel for a few seconds in the microwave on defrost mode!

Bon appetite 👩🏼‍🍳

KERRIE FITNESS – WINNER Local Business Awards 2018.

Kerrie Mewett opened her studio KERRIE FITNESS in 2013, after ten years of instructing in the fitness industry. Not content with just moving along at the pace of the big name programs on offer at the gyms she worked in, she decided to create her very own programs and soon had a following. Kerrie taught her own core class “KERRIE CORE” at gyms and her own studio, at the same time as building on her new program “KHIIT” (Kerrie High Intensity Interval Training). Working endlessly on her class structure prior to cutting ties with other gyms and programs and unleashing KHIIT to her members! Providing a new workout each and every week. Keeping up with the times of busy lifestyles. Kerrie’s workouts have you in and out of her studio in just half an hour. No time to think about the outside world whilst you’re training. Sculpted from head to toe and feeling a million dollars by the time you leave.

After five successive “Finalist” nominations in the Campbelltown Local Business Awards, this year 2018, Kerrie successfully won the award for “Best Fitness Services”! A testament to the hard work and dedication by Kerrie for the creation of Kerrie Core and her KHIIT programs… Aerobics, Bench, Martial Arts and Weighted. Along with being awarded Les Mills Instructor of the year Australia Asia Pacific Region 2008 and 2014, Kerrie is one instructor whose class you need to experience “Live”.

To train at KERRIE FITNESS with Kerrie, come and visit her Studio at Unit H10, 5-7 Hepher Road, Campbelltown, Sydney, NSW, Australia. No bookings necessary.

Live out of the area? That to is no longer an issue. Whilst Kerrie has been busy with her members in her studio, in the background she has been building a recording studio with her husband Trevor, to produce online workouts. Just this month, June 2018, #kezfit was launched! You can now download your very own #kezfit Kerrie Core 1 class online at www.kerriefitness.com.au . #kezfit Kerrie Core 2 is due to launch on 21 July 2018.

KERRIE FITNESS – 100% – 5 from 5. But this time it’s extra sweet!

Being nominated as a finalist in the fitness industry is one thing we really get a kick out of at KERRIE FITNESS.  Ask me why?

It’s quite simple really.  It is an affirmation that we are doing the right thing by our members, we are giving them what they want.  We are caring about their progress, we are engaging them.  We are with them the whole way.

We would like to thank each and every one of you “voters”, of course I won’t be making the classes easier!  But Thanks.

In 2004 I started teaching Les Mills at Fitness First.  Over the next decade along with the 20 plus classes I taught with Les Mills content, I also began to develop my own class, KERRIE CORE.

With Fitness First closing down I took the leap of faith and opened my own studio, continuing with Les Mills and ZUMBA plus adding more of my own classes to the timetable.  And along the way collected 4 x Local Business award finalist nominations and won my second Les Mills Australia Asia Pacific Instructor of the year award (2008) (2014)

Late last year I once again took that leap of faith, and with a heavy heart let Les Mills programs go.

That was to make room for my own style of HIIT training KHIIT!  Kerrie High Intensity Interval Training.  Along with Kerrie Core and ZUMBA the timetable was completely renewed.

To have been fortunate enough to once again receive a nomination for finalist and this time not relying on a world wide known draw card such as Les Mills, I feel that this is the best nomination yet as it makes me believe I’m on the right path.

KERRIE FITNESS asks – Are You getting the most from your Health Fund?

Never been a better time to join KERRIE FITNESS.

Three points:

  • Most funds require the Studio you go to be registered with Fitness Australia, The Health & Fitness Industry Association.
  • Most funds do not recognise personal training or 24 hour fitness memberships.
  • You will need to check in with your fund about eligibility.

Private Health Fund Rebates

Find out which Private Health Funds offer rebates for fitness services


Private Health Fund Rebates for Fitness Services

Staying informed about private health fund rebates for fitness services will allow you to provide accurate information to your existing and prospective members about opportunities to claim private health fund rebates for fitness services.

What do I need to do to help my clients/members claim?

Be guided by your clients.  Enquire as to whether they have Private Health Insurance and if so, which fund?  The following information about specific funds should be taken as a guide only and is not an exhaustive list of funds recognising fitness services.

If your client holds private health insurance, suggest they contact their fund to determine what is required to enable them to gain a rebate and what level of rebate they are eligible to receive.

It’s important to remember that all funds are different!  Some funds require you to be registered with Fitness Australia, while others also require you to register with them directly.  In some cases a GP referral may be required to indicate that the fitness program is necessary due to an existing health or medical condition.  Importantly a number of funds don’t recognise personal training services, or 24 hour fitness centre memberships.

Finally it’s also important to remember that the amount of a potential refund is heavily dependent on the level of cover held by the member and that holding private health insurance does not automatically ensure eligibility for a refund for fitness service.

Fitness Australia is working hard towards aligning the national Business and Professional Registration schemes with all Private Health Funds.  Fitness Australia has produced a position statement for Private Health Insurers.  These recommendations seek to inform Private Health Insurers about current fitness industry standards and provide an insight into fitness industry operations that will assist in the development or recognition of existing policies.

Tier 1 funds:

Health Funds offering rebates exclusively to Fitness Australia Registered Businesses

Your client will receive a rebate upon presentation of proof of payment documentation from the business containing their Fitness Australia registered business number.

Tier 2 funds:

The following businesses require business registration with Fitness Australia and for the business to complete a registration form with the fund:

  • NIB (download their form)
  • Note: You must have a referral form from a prescribing physician to be eligible to claim a rebate for fitness services.

Tier 3 funds:

The following funds require a medical referral and completion of appropriate documentation.

KERRIE FITNESS – Registered Sole Trading Business with Fitness Australia Limited.

NSW Department of Fair Trading advises people to only sign up to gyms affiliated with Fitness Australia

Kerrie Fitness Registration

In a statement released by the NSW Department of Fair Trading on the number of contractual complaints they received by Gym users in 2017, they reminded consumers that signing up to a Fitness Australia affiliated Gym is the way to go.

Bill Moore, CEO of Fitness Australia, the peak national industry association says “This is a great reminder for consumers to be choosing the right gym or fitness facility.”

“We know that the measures in place between Fitness Australia and the State and Territory Departments of Fair Trading to protect both the fitness businesses and their clients are most effective when the business is a member of Fitness Australia.”

“We work closely with our business members who strive for a high standard of customer care, safety and service,” says Moore.

Members of Fitness Australia have made a commitment to industry’s key business principles and standards.

Fitness Australia’s commitment to the fitness industry includes developing guidelines and safety standards through consultation with experts which in turn are delivered as quality education programs for business accreditation, putting client safety first.

“We will continue to work with the State based Departments of Fair Trading to see how we can contribute to reducing complaints about gym contracts,” reassures Moore.
