Do you feel that the real you, the person you want to be and maybe once were has disappeared? Do you struggle to keep all the balls of your life up in the air? Do you feel like you spend too much time working and not enough time living? Have you forgotten what your family looks like? Have you struggled to go to a gym, unsure what exactly you should be doing when you get there? Are you tired of being tired? Are you fed up with spending money on health stuff that just doesn’t work? Does the number on the scale keep going up with your age?! Do you know what you ‘should’ do but can’t find the time, energy or motivation to actually do it?
Yeah, me too!
I spent many years being able to say yes to all those questions.
Our lives can be bloody hard work. No person’s life is the same as another’s but we can often say Yes to at least one of these questions. And we all know that our health is important. But it’s often the first ball to drop. We are often the last item on our ‘To Do’ list. Imagine if it was different!
Having energy to play with your kids when you come home from work. Your kids watching you take time for you and learning how important self-care is. Eating without guilt and enjoying each mouthful. Sleeping like a baby each night - waking up refreshed. Having confidence not just in how you look but who you are. Discovering new skills, interests, hobbies, adventures with family and friends. Learning about how you work, body, mind and soul. Putting into action those dreams you have on hold.
Your health & fitness is the foundation and gateway to all these wonderful things.
I believe there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all health & fitness solution. We are all different. We are all individuals.
Learning about you as an individual, physically, mentally and emotionally is vital to creating sustainable healthy way of life. Developing an approach to health & fitness that works with you and your life can mean you not just imagining all these things but living them! We have many roles in our lives that demand our attention: wage-earner, child-raiser, carer, all 3 or many other labels we get given or take on. We can do none of these to the best of our ability if we don’t look after ourselves.
Put yourself first and be amazed at the positive impact it has, not just on you but on all those around you!
