I have a dream

Share This Post

Sometimes I have a dream. I am up on a pulpit preaching health and fitness to the masses….. fist coming down for emphasis and spirits soaring amongst the crowd as they soak in and own every word I utter, as if from God him (or her) self, I know, I know typical personal trainer type with a God complex!

What I dream next is a world of active people…. happy, strong, flexible and fit people. No I am not talking some ‘Globo gym’ utopia of lycra and latte’s. I am talking about down to earth people who every day make activity a simple part of their life and look & feel immensely better for it.

As you know we are personal trainers and our job is to help make this more of reality for more and more people. You know how they say that you can give a person a fish and they will eat for a day? Well the analogy is the same. We are teaching people how to ‘fish’ so they can be active for life. This is the answer. It needs to be a part of your life and not just something you go and do separately in a square boxed room filled with plasmas and pumping music (although this can and should indeed be part of it – because it is hard to do the non-negotiable progressive strength training anywhere else).

So my dream is that this Monday morning you are reflecting back on a perhaps adventured filled but certainly fun (because movement is a celebration) infused weekend of action and activity like surfing, mountain climbing, hiking, jogging, swimming, kicking the footy in the park, paddling, horseriding…whatever. I am keen to hear about it!

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

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.
