The A Life 30 Day Squat Challenge

Posted on: February 10th, 2020 by thealife_admin in No Comments

Inspired by revolutionary movement expert Ido Portal, once a year The A Life will do a 30 day community Squat Challenge.

The results and feedback from our community is mind blowing! Improved posture, reduced hip pain, better digestion plus a more comfortable resting deep squat!

Ready to give the challenge a go on your own? Below is everything you need to know!

Before you start!!

Take a before photo! This is one of the most important things to do, so you can visually see improvement after 30 days..

Beginner Variations…

Can’t get your heels down or fall over when trying to balance in a squat? Here are some great beginner variations we highly recommend.

Hold on to a door frame or bar. This allows you to have a vertical shin and create a more upright posture! Perfect if you are starting out with very tight hips.
If tight calves is your thing, put as much as you need to under your heels. A block or towel should do the trick. Practice your daily squat using the props and in between make sure you are avoiding heels and stretch your calves out.

Head over to THE A LIFE IGTV for weekly bonus challenges/routines to do throughout the 30 days. And here are just a few points to remember:

If you do this challenge at home, please tag us or send us email! We are here to help and would love to see your before and after photo!

Blondies The A Life way

Posted on: October 8th, 2019 by thealife_admin in 1 Comment

Marty’s recipe was inspired by Gnom Gnom with a few adjustments and cater for a vegan option.

I’ve always enjoyed the combination of peanut butter and chocolate so this immediately became my favourite snack.  It’s also VERY filling so you shouldn’t have to worry about eating too much of it.


– 140 g x Peanut Butter (I prefer smooth)
– 125 g x Grass-Fed Butter. ***Coconut Oil for Vegan Option. The softer the better.
– 2 x Eggs ***For Vegan option use 3 TBSP x Chia Seeds mixed with 5 – 6 TBSP of Nut Milk.  To be  mixed in a cup until they chai seeds absorbs the milk.
– 160 g x Almond Meal
– 3/4 x Baking Powder
– 90 g x Dark Chocolate Chips or Chunks
– 90 g or 7 TBSP x Rice Syrup
– Sea Salt for Garnish (optional)


***If you choose the vegan option, prepare your Chia- nut milk first.  This needs a few minutes for the chia to absorb the milk. This is you egg replacement which helps bind the other ingredients together.

1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees celsius.

2. Place peanut butter, Grass Fed – Butter (or Coconut oil for vegan option), Rice Syrup, Eggs (Chia + Nut Milk mix for Vegan option) and mix all together until all the ingredients have combined. You should end up with a thick mixture

3. Add Almond Meal and Baking Powder into the mixture. Give this a good hard whisk through for at least a minute.

4. Begin to add the dark chocolate and give the mixture a good whisk until theres even amounts of chocolate spreads out.

5. Transfer the mixture to a baking dish and put it in the oven for 15 minutes.

6. I like to rotate the baking dish from front to back and put it in for another 7 minutes or at least when the mixture starts to get a golden brown colour. Baking should be longer than 25 minutes or so.

7.  Once finished, let it cool down, sprinkle some salt and place in the fridge for at least 1 hour before you cut it up and enjoy.  BUT I like to have it hot straight outta the oven, you’ll just have to serve it on a plate.

ENJOY… Tag us on instagram if you give it a try!

Osteopathy & Chronic Pain Management

Posted on: August 7th, 2019 by thealife_admin in No Comments

Did you know Osteopaths can support you through Chronic conditions along side your GP? Our Osteopath Fauntine answers all your questions below!

Q: Is Osteopathy covered by Medicare?

A: Sometimes. Osteopathy usually falls into the bracket of Private Healthcare however one can receive a Medicare rebate if they are a patient on the Chronic Disease Management (CDM) program. This was formerly known as Enhanced Primary Care or EPC. 

Q: What is the CDM program?  

A: The CDM program is run by the Australian Government enabling General Practitioners (GPs) to refer patients to an allied healthcare practitioner (eg/ Osteopath) for treatment of chronic medical conditions.

Q: How does the CDM program work?

A: The process begins with a patient visiting the GP whereby they will decide if the patient is eligible for the program and which services would be of benefit. The GP then refers the patient for up to 5 consultations with an Allied Healthcare Professional (eg/ Osteopath) in one calendar year. 

The GP will be responsible for reviewing and revising the patient’s program. They will be in contact with the patient’s Osteopath who will be providing the GP with reports and updates. 

The Medicare rebate will cover $52.95 of each treatment leaving the gap to be paid for by the patient. 

StandardCDM patients
Initial appointment$115.00$62.05 ($115-52.95)
Subsequent appointment$88.00$35.05 ($88-52.95)

Q: Does The A Life see patients on CDM programs? 

A: Yes. If you are on a CDM program please ensure you have all the completed paperwork from your GP before your first Osteo consultation.
