simplerfitness' principles combine so their sum becomes far more than any one part. Diets, gyms, cleanses, et cetera typically disappoint by failing to do so. Together we'll focus on how we get 80% goodness doing the 20% Science says matters most.
Say we wish to discuss life changes to help you ward off prediabetes. We'd need to discuss the interrelationships between nourish (diet), move (exercise), refresh (sleep), purify (cigarettes, drugs and alcohol) and inspire (why you really don't want to go down that road and how you motivate you and your family to live a better way).
the way gives us a context in which to consider and discuss topics involving more than one 1st principle and how they influence one another and our healthlives.
Had you been a man of Sparta, up to the age of 60 you could be called up to the armed forces during times of war.
Your shield weighed 20lbs (≈8kg), your armor and weapons weighed another full 60lbs (≈30kg).
Your fitness was measured purely by your ability, agility, strength and stamina.
Your fitness determined whether you and those you loved lived free, died or worse.
Had you instead been a woman of Sparta, your physical prowess would be no less.
Raised little different from the men, your fitness training also began at a tender age.
Along side the boys you would be called to prove yourself through physical challenges, not least wrestling, gymnastics, athletics and horse races, including at prestigious competitions such as gymnopaedia – the Spartan festival of naked youths, or that rather more famous event, the Olympics. It was no coincidence ancient Sparta women were renown for their fertility and beauty by comparison to other Greek women.
E.g. Helen of Troy, though fictional, was born of Sparta.
My Point is this: These days we look in a mirror and/or stare at a number on a scale.
These are picayune tokens of what our health and fitness really mean.
Vibrant health and fitness mean we live more happy, energetic, sexy, long, strong, resilient, youthful meaningful lives, everyday.
We've let our health slip far so far down our list of priorities when it really ought to take pride of first place.
Early on our youth may protect us somewhat. But our age of reckoning is coming earlier and earlier.
And while our healthcare systems struggle to patch us up and hold us together, that's arse-backwards.
I'm here to share with you the incredibly rich rewards of a simplified time-efficient wholelife healthlife design.
You don't need to live in a gym or for that matter work that hard.
You most definitely needn't go hungry.
You hardly need to spend any money.
So what DO you need to do?
Apply what science has shown us time and again to be best health practices as a way of life and stop chasing the lure of all the shiny shiny hacks, tricks, cheats and shortcuts that so far haven't gotten you anywhere near the life you wish was yours in your heart of hearts.
You need a plan to understand and integrate those best health practices as the way you live your life.
Those practices ARE the way of simplerƒitness – the inspiration and follow through to move, nourish, refresh and purify your body meaningfully every day. Those links are written to help you get started with my teaching you what I'd teach you if I could only teach you one thing.
Hopefully they will inspire you and set you upon the way of simplerfitness.
And if you're inspired to improve much more quickly and efficiently, let's explore working together; that's what fast-track is for, as simplerfitness clients have access to trainings and prompt help with roadblocks and questions.
