You have worked hard in your chosen careers to be where you are in your life today. Hours, days, weeks and years of studying, learning, making sacrifices, working overtime, cutting your teeth, paying your dues, honing your craft, perfecting your skills and maintaining your status. It has taken a lot of dedication, and there have been no shortcuts. And now you are enjoying the fruits of your labour, enjoying life and experiences with your friends, family and the world, and it has all been worth it.


Building a Lasting Approach to Health and Fitness

So ask yourself, why should your approach to health and fitness be any different? You want to be the best that you can be, right? You want to enjoy your life with your chosen ones and set a good example for others to see. You want to be happy. The first thing we notice about someone is their appearance, and whether we like to admit it or not, we all care about the impression that we make. Now when I talk of impressions, I’m not referring exclusively to your physical appearance, but also about your health. Your energy. Your movement. A healthy body contributes to a healthy mind.

You need to work hard to achieve and maintain a good level of health and fitness. There are no short cuts, quick fixes, cheat methods or easy ways out. There is no such thing as spot reduction, and there is no “magic diet’. You have to be dedicated, put it in time and effort, and make the right decisions to be the best you can be and achieve your goals. It will be challenging, and most of us have physical and mental obstacles we have to constantly overcome to be that person we want to be.

Long Term Exercise for Lasting Results

For most of us, that means we need support long term. Because exercising for a long, healthy life is very different to exercising for short term gratification. Consequently, at some point in our lives there will be:

  • muscular aches and strains,
  • lower back pain,
  • the risk of lifestyle diseases such as diabetes and heart disease
  • osteopenia which can lead to osteoporosis
  • weight gain and metabolic disorders
  • surgical intervention requiring specific rehabilitation
  • loss of function, balance and co-ordination
  • the risk of falls and accidents

If these are feelings you’re commonly subjected to, please get in touch with us here for a free health evaluation

Just remember, getting to where you want to be with your health takes time, commitment and dedication. You already know this because you have all worked so hard to get where you are now in your lives. But you are so worth it.

See you in the gym!
