As a fitness coach contrary to popular belief
I don't always enjoy exercise
In fact, I always aim to get results from my exercise routines in the shortest time possible!
I also enjoy foods that maybe don't fit on the healthy list
And although I want to be in good shape why would I want to go without them?
That would make for a miserable life!
From a young age I helped my father in his business dragging heavy boating equipment around
By sixteen I was starting to develop severe back problems
Luckily finding structured exercise a few years after helped with this
And I realised I wanted to help others get the same benefits
But fast forward to now and I still enjoy being healthy
And in good shape
But as I mentioned earlier
Being able to do that at 40+ comes with it's own challenges!
We know our metabolisms have slowed down
In fact I have thyroid dysfunction and take daily medication
Which doesn't help
Plus with the damage I had done at a young age I still get back "niggles"
But this helped as not long ago
I had discovered that I had invented my own complete healthy lifestyle system
My own brand of exercise
I'm not that confident jumping around and performing exercises like Burpees
Just because in the short term they burn a few calories
Mine are based around burning calories, but keeping it low impact
Improving mobility and strengthening muscles that support backs and joints
Plus with results based eating habits I want it to be simple
Not have to read every food label
Measure every food and drink item consumed
My coaching clients were getting great results
And I really enjoyed seeing how things changed for them
Whilst working with my one to one clients
I noticed many people motivated to exercise a few times a week
Who didn't require someone to be there for every rep of every exercise
But what they were doing was not working
They were not changing
They were not sure where to direct their efforts
And that as well as exercise, other aspects of a healthy lifestyle
Like eating habits were key also
But they didn't know where to start
Exercise programmes whilst sometimes part of their membership
Didn't really cater for the needs of someone "our age"
And featured similar exercises like leg extension, lat pulldown machines and X trainers or Treadmills
And eating habits or nutrition advice wasn't readily given
As gyms want you to believe it's down to exercise
So I discovered a way I could help was to design a system
A complete system
So easy to follow
That could help over 40 somethings
Have more energy
Be in better health and shape...
