Making Adventure Beautiful

I have so much gratitude to all

When I decided I wanted to create adventure wear because I felt I looked like a tom boy in all my adventure photos and believed I could create a product that was functional and beautiful, I never knew how amazing it would feel seeing people all over making adventure beautiful in MAB Adventure Wear.

I want to personally Thank every person that has supported my vision and purchased MAB Adventure Wear, my heart is so full of gratitude that so many of you appreciate making adventure beautiful as much as me.

Feedback is what I love most from happy customers like Justin Jaxon

I have to share how much I love my adventure wear. So comfortable and the colours actually contribute to feeling happy. I love the pockets on the side for my key and phone. Great length so no riding up when I run. Hardest thing about this awesome product was choosing which colour and style to buy first. Cant wait to purchase more

And what brings me most joy of all, is to see so many beautiful ladies getting outdoors, connecting with nature and totally rocking their MAB adventure wear over the Sunshine Coast, Australia, right where it is manufactured.

Much Love

MAB is getting more adventurous on the Sunshine Coast

I am thrilled to announce that ‘MAB Personal Training and Adventures’ are sharing even more adventures with locals and visitors to our beautiful Sunshine Coast.

With adventures being my signature and biggest passion and the Sunshine Coast being one of the most popular destinations to visit in Australia, it makes perfect sense to expand this part of the business even more.

Oh and did I mention that one of my biggest adventures to date was spending the day with the beautiful Sofie Formica and the TV show, ‘The Great South East’.

Yep just a few weeks ago ‘MAB Personal Training and Adventures’ got to spend the day with Sofie and the film crew, I am sure that you can imagine just how super excited I was about being able to share my passion and love of adventure with the world.  I took the team on the ‘MAB Glass House Mountains Discovery Adventure’ which is to the foothills of the Matthew Flinders, the adventure is a combination of:

History, ‘Matthew Flinders was the first European to set foot on the Sunshine Coast, when his crew disembarked from the Norfolk on 19 July 1799’

Nature,  ‘Discovering the waters of Pumicestone Passage to the mountains and hikes of the Glass House Mountains’

Kayaking, ‘Down the still beautiful Bells Creek Pumicestone Passage, The majority of the locality is part of the Beerburrum State Forest’

Mountain climbing, ‘The unique Mount Ngungun 253m high, 2.8km return. Open forest with a fern understorey, woodlands, a small rock overhang, caves, spectacular 360 degree views from the top of Mount Ngungun, close-up views of nearby Mount Tibrogargan, Mount Coonowrin and Mount Beerwah’

Hiking, ‘We  walk around the base of the beautiful 364m high Mount Tibrogargan, the circuit being 3.2km in total. Mount Tibrogargan is located between Beerburrum and Glass House’

Fitness, ‘What better way to burn calories and work up a sweat then being outdoors in nature

Food, ‘Enjoy healthy yummy delicious snacks and lunch by The Paleo Place

Fun, ‘MAB makes it fun, it’s all about the experience’

HOW awesome is that?

Sofie totally loved the adventure, especially the mountain climb, she said, “mountains are her happy place”, which of course I personally relate to. There is something about climbing a mountain, it’s a like a metaphor to life ‘When you reach the top, you feel on top of the world, as if you can do anything, you feel alive and empowered’.  I was honoured that Sofie even got involved in doing one of the famous #mabstarjump, we did a group star jump on the top of Mount Ngungun.

The MABSTARJUMP is all about ‘Living Big’, our moto is:

“Live Big

Love Big

Dream Big

And do lots of STAR JUMPS

Because life is totally worth celebrating”

Having years of experience sharing my adventures with MAB clients I feel confident that I have the tools to help people of any fitness level to enjoy this adventure.  I believe adventures can sometimes bring up fears for people, however I find with the ‘Power of Intention’, the adventurer can make an MAB Adventure something even more magical by saying goodbye to their fears and saying hello instead to their awesomeness.

Nerves……. What nerves, If you know me, then you know that I love to talk and that I get very excited about the outdoors, however as soon as camera was pointed on me, I went all shy? What the? Me shy? Never, right?  I can’t wait to see the see the piece ‘The Great South East’ has put together, what I know for sure is, ‘It’s going to be perfect’.

I find it amazing that by living the life I love to live, I get to share with others, to inspire them to live a happy, healthy, active, adventurous life full of love. My heart is beaming with gratitude to the point that it could explode and I am smiling from ear to ear.

I am super grateful for ‘Visit Sunshine Coast’ and ‘The Great South East’ for helping MAB get our adventures out there to locals and visitors alike, and I am also super excited and grateful to all current clientele for continually supporting MAB and joining in on the new adventures that we are continually coming up.

Let’s get adventurous…If I have inspired you to the point of adventure, contact me and let’s DO IT TOGETHER, I’m offering a GREAT SOUTH EAST SPECIAL CELEBRATION ADVENTURE – Book an adventure with me in the month before the end of September to receive a buy one adventure, get one free (yes that means you can bring your friend for free).  Contact me on 0401 286 200

MAB Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Merry Christmas all, what a year 2015 backing up 2014, time flies when your having fun right? well certainly did in my case, I had intention to blog so much and that didn’t go to plan.  It’s life really, it doesn’t always go to plan, its about adapting to changes, embracing the challenges which makes the ride so much more fun, speaking of ride, let me share the ride of 2015 that included so many awesome moments with so many awesome people.

I personally started the year in Canada & San Francisco, I felt I didnt’t get back into the swing of things till February. I knew I had a big year ahead though writing this I am still over whelmed at how big it was, once again the power of intention, be clear and you can manifest what you desire, also this year I did adjust and adapt by cancelling events that I just didn’t have the energy to do after Africa as that was the most  amazing experience ever and also it took loads of energy out of me, more so when I got back I just wanted to process all the gifts of the trip.

Right now though let’s all set a MAB group intention to live an adventurous, happy, healthy, active, fun life with awesome people, and of course, do lots of starjumps as life is totally worth celebrating

Have a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year
