A legend get’s recognised

Share This Post

On Friday night here at the pool, a true character and a gentleman got recognised for the legend he is. Norman Hughes, age 78 was honored with a ceremony, surrounded by friends of all ages as the new (ish) pool terrace/deck area, was officially named after him. Well done to Belgravia Leisure and the pool staff, particularly Gemma and Dylan for getting it together and helping make a great night of it. There was a very special feel amongst all who were there as great stories were shared by those who have known Norman for both short and long periods of time. He has touched many with his intelligence,  humour and obvious good nature. I interviewed Norman a few weeks back and asked him what got him to the point where exercise is a very real and structured part of his life. I will post that video once I have edited it a little. I think all of us can draw some inspiration from this man. It is clear that he has fully grasped the power of movement, routine and the social bonds that go with the healthy pursuit of life as an action sport! Well done Norman, you are a bonus to all those who know you!

Use it or lose it…..

Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
