Mac, a Master Trainer and Clinical Nutritionist is our Biz-Fit fitness guru, and if he can’t get you off the couch to the summit no-one can. He understands that fitness, exercise and nutrition are vital to improving the quality of life and he is passionate about changing people’s lives.
So sit up, pay attention and take notice of what Mac has to say…
Why is a large percentage of the population sedentary, ill, unfit and unhealthy? NO TIME!
Being a Master Personal Trainer and Clinical Nutritionist with 20 years in the industry, this is the Number One excuse I still hear “NO TIME”
But let’s think about this – is it really a question of not having enough time or is it that your priorities are not in place or order?
If it’s priorities, when do you think you will make your health your Number One – when you are ill or worse when it’s too late?
I know from experience that when people finally do start to get fitter and healthier they ALL say they feel great and wished they had started sooner. So, why don’t you take the bull by the horns and start TODAY!
Think about it. If you don’t have your health, all your other achievements really won’t matter at all. How much fun do you think you will have to celebrate your achievements and successes if you sacrificed your health to get there?
Life is for living with, fun, passion and an abundance of energy. Can you honestly say you are living your life to the full and enjoying it? Admitting you need to do something is the first step and action is the next. Let’s not forget what exercise really does for you and your body:
- Weight control
- Reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease
- Reduces the risk for type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome
- Reduces the risk of some cancers
- Strengthens our bones and muscles
- Improves our overall mental health and well-being
- Improved sleep – a moderate intensity workout can help you get a better night’s sleep and you’ll feel the benefits the next day
- Increased productivity – when you take the time to work out regularly you are more productive and enjoy higher energy levels than someone who is sedentary. Imagine what you can get done in a day!
- Reduces stress – exercise can help the brain cope better with stress. When you work out, you increase the concentrations of ‘norepinephrine’, a chemical that can moderate the brain’s response to stress
- Enhances mood – exercise releases endorphins, which create feelings of happiness and even euphoria. Studies have shown that physical activity can be effective in alleviating symptoms among clinically depressed people
- Improves self-confidence – physical fitness can boost self-esteem and improve self-image. Research has shown that regular physical exercise can quickly elevate a person’s perception of her or his self-worth
Please, please don’t be the person who reads this article and stores it in a safe place, to action later when you have time. Take back control and do something super positive today and if you need help admit this and seek new challenges.
