Great Change Comes in Small Steps

Don’t get caught up in the hype! Keep it simple.

In today’s society we are constantly bombarded by messages about diet and exercise; food advice, recommended exercise durations, low fat, sugar free, gluten free, 30 minutes a day, an hour a day, vegan, paleo, more carbs, less carbs, what are carbs? ARRGGH!!!

Information overload

It can all get overwhelming and hard to know what to do. And not only that but we are getting it from more avenues than ever before it’s not just TV, print and radio anymore now there is facebook, twitter, instagram, etc.

It seems that now more than ever in this age of unlimited information that understanding health, diet and exercise is harder than ever.

Don’t get caught up

So my advice to you is not to get caught up in the hype, don’t listen to the marketing campaigns and the products that seem to be the answer to immediate results.

If you are on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook we see so many inspirational messages every day. But it is very easy to tweet, etc. such a platitude, it might get a lot of likes, clicks, shares, retweets, etc. but ultimately it doesn’t mean anything unless you take action.

Make lots of little changes on a daily basis

A lot of people, and you may be included see these and think that’s great but I can’t seem to change or make it work. So I say don’t over complicate it or overthink it. Make one small addition to your life that you can do on a daily basis that is going to ultimately lead to great change.

Take it step by step, gradually start to eat a little better, cut down on the snack foods, slowly start to incorporate more exercise into your life, make little incremental changes that eventually will crowd out that which is not serving to make you better and before you know it you will be on your way to a new, improved you.

If you would like more advice or assistance from me on how to make improvements in your life I am a qualified Personal Trainer and Fitness Coach and would love to work with you to helping you achieve your goals.

Health! You owe it to yourself!

Why should you stay fit and healthy? Why should you exercise? Why should you eat well? In today’s busy and hectic world people have gotten so busy working and with being busy they have forgotten how to look after themselves. So the biggest reason we should do any of the things above is because you owe it to yourself and you are too important not too.

“The really important thing is not to live, but to live well” ~ Socrates

But we cannot live well if we do not take care of our bodies

“It is a shame to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which the body is capable.” ~ Socrates

Why go through life just existing. It is more enjoyable to be able to explore all the wonders and amazing things that life has to offer. A life not lived, spent wondering what if or if only is no life at all.

If you get to a point in life where you think you have reached your destination or are happy the way things are that is the time when you need to get up and keep moving again. You should continually seek to grow, learn, expand and change. Whether in home, work, exercise or anything else for that matter.

But ultimately when it comes to health and fitness you have to want it for yourself. No one else can do it for you. You can gather people around you to help you, to guide you and motivate you. But at the end of the day you have to do the work. And it does take work. But you can find enjoyment in the work as well.

I choose to stay fit, healthy and active not just for myself but for those that won’t do it for themselves, to show that it is not that difficult, that with a little bit of work and discipline you can make a huge change.

I am a qualified Personal Trainer. I will help you to get fitter, healthier and happier in a way that is enjoyable and sustainable.
