Around Geelong, we live in such a beautiful and vibrant landscape, encapsulating all terrains and environments. From beaches to forests, hills to open plains, there is nothing more the adventurous could want that Geelong cannot deliver, that’s why us at SportsPower Geelong are providing you with our ‘Walk Around Geelong’ series, to encourage everyone of all ages and abilities, to keep fit and healthy amid a Covid world.

This week, we take a look at the Anakie Gorge.

If you’re in the Geelong area and looking for an adventurous walk, look no further than the Anakie Gorge, located in the Brisbane Ranges National Park. If you would like to get in touch with your ‘Aussie Spirit’, this walk will allow you to reconnect with iconic Australian wildlife, including wallabies and koalas (Parks Victoria).

This hike is recommended for intermediate and experienced hikers, as the 7.96k hike takes an estimated 2 hours, according to Walkingmaps.com.au.

Covering reservoirs, dry valleys and forests, the walk not only provides a great physical challenge, but allows you to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and allows you to tune into the sounds of nature. Appropriate footwear is necessary to complete this hike; however,  you can pick up a pair of trusty ‘Merrell’ boots here at SportsPower Geelong.

Numerous state draft combines have occurred already, with the impact of COVID-19 preventing a national draft combine from happening this year. Nonetheless, state combines have enabled draft hopefuls to impress recruiters around the country in their bid to attract as much club interest as possible.

As much as we love to go and smash ourselves with a big running session, or by throwing around a few weights in the gym (we pretend to love it anyway!), it’s equally important to look after our body through managing our workload. After all, you can’t continue to train if you’re constantly sore, fatigued or worse of all…injured. That being said, the importance of recovery in attaining your fitness goals is highly critical. Recovery essentially refers to the period directly after a training session, in the lead up to the next. It incorporates all the actions which assist in returning your body to pre-exercise levels. The effects of recovery often go underrated; however, all professional sportsman cannot speak higher of the positive impacts that a proper recovery has on performance.
