A sustainable and adaptable approach to fitness, diet, and general well-being
For the past three years, I have worked as a personal trainer, cooperating with clients to develop and implement fitness regimes that make them happy and keep them healthy.
I don't believe in restrictive diets or inflexible training schedules, neither of which are easily adapted to your day-to-day obligations (i.e. work, family, travel, etc). Instead, I have found that what works in the long term is finding something physical that you look forward to every day; as well as fueling your body in accordance with your bio-individual needs. The physical activity could be swimming, biking, circuit training, boxing, or even playing with your kids. To me, it's much less important what the activity is, but rather that you enjoy it, and can practice it consistently. Moving in a way that makes you happy will, overtime, sculpt your body, your mind, and become part of a lifestyle that motivates you.
The body is a byproduct of the activities, both physical and mental, that you practice daily. Focus first on feeding your body well and moving every day, and the body will come.
