Everyone worries about what to give others at holiday time, but often neglect their own needs in the process. The holidays can bring stress and exhaustion, so to be at your best, you need to give yourself the gift of health. The gift of health can mean a number of things, but normally, it means switching to a healthier lifestyle. If you smoke, quit. If you lead a sedentary life, exercise more. If you’re eating habits aren’t the best, change them. That’s all easy to say, but the actual path may not be nearly as easy to follow. Sometimes, you need help.
Knowing where to start.
No matter what type of program you start, working with an expert can help. When it comes to eating healthier and exercising, there’s no better expert than a personal trainer with an endorsement in nutrition. In fact, studies show that regular exercise can even help you overcome cigarette and drug addiction by helping to control the cravings. Knowing your fitness level and the right types of training is the job of a personal trainer. As a trainer, I assess each person’s fitness level and then listen to goals and any special needs. Only then do I create individual programs.
You’ll learn how to do all the exercises correctly.
Not only do I create your program, I’ll teach you the right way to do each exercise to avoid injury and maximize the benefits. I also watch to insure you do it properly. You’ll work hard, but the benefits it brings makes it all worth while. You’ll notice your energy levels increasing in just a few weeks and your mood and posture improving. Before long, you’ll see all the changes in your body, such as weight loss, increased muscle tone and looser clothing. Your doctor will notice the change in your heart rate and blood pressure too.
Learn how to eat healthier.
Getting fitter also means learning how to improve your nutrition. When you learn how to make smarter choices when it comes to food, you’ll never have to diet again. Eating healthy by no means is starving yourself. That’s counterproductive and bad for your health. It may mean making substitutions, such as eating whole grain brown rice instead of white rice or cooking differently. You’ll love the new way of eating and never feel deprived or hungry.
The gift of good health is a gift for the whole family. It keeps you healthy and active longer so you can enjoy your family. You’ll live longer and spend those years healthier and more independent.
Share the gift of good health with a family member. Come with your spouse, a sibling or parent and make good health their gift. They’ll thank you for it.
You’ll develop a zest for life and a happier disposition. Everyone will be able to recognize the difference.
Regular exercise and a healthy diet help to prevent serious conditions. Exercise burns off the hormones created by stress, while a healthy diet provides antioxidants to protect the cells.
