First Oceanias Experience – by Mercedes

With Oceania squad fast approaching, I thought it’d be a good idea to get some experiences up on the blog for us to enjoy! But especially for the newbies in the team. Bonny and I don’t want to be the only ones to write on here, we want it to be a one stop shop for lots of different ideas and stories for New Zealand skaters! (and maybe in the future some overseas skaters as well!) So to start us off, I asked my sister Mercedes to write a little about her first Oceania experience. Hope you enjoy!

Anna’s Energy Balls – gluten and dairy free

Today, Anna Harris (2014 senior solo dance representative at Worlds) brings us her energy ball recipe! I love these. They’re the perfect post or pre training snack. Their high sugar and high protein content will keep you feeling satisfied and full of energy for your trainings as well as being a good recovery food post training. I’m so excited to share these with you!

Intro to my off skate training

For the next few weeks, I’m going to be sharing some of my workouts with you. They will be an example of the sort of thing I’m doing at the moment so if you’re a beginner or you’ve never been to the gym before, I would definitely get some help with learning the proper form for all new exercises and starting really light. I would also check with your doctor before starting any new exercise regime especially if you have diabetes, are over weight, smoke, any chronic illness or have an injury.
