Sitting disease? Sedentary lifestyle? Yes, it’s real!
There’s a widespread problem in modern society. Many of us are leading a sedentary lifestyle! We may not admit it, but many of us spend over 8 hours per day on a computer desk. After that, we sit while we drive to and from work, we sit while we eat, and we sit while we watch TV, or engage on social media.
The result is a feeling of sluggishness, energy-deprivation, and lack of motivation to move.
Most people would like to exercise in principle, but they don’t, because exercising on their own is boring and unmotivating, or they try to convince themselves that they just don’t have the time for it.
But let’s face it… exercise is MEGA important! Our body is a movement machine! It was designed to run, climb, crawl, jump, leap, recover from falls, etc. In ancient days, movement meant survival. If you couldn’t hunt, run or climb, your days were numbered. Nowadays, we still have the same body design, but all we do it sit, lie and eat. Something’s wrong.
We take health for granted, until illness hits us. But we can prevent this. Exercise plays a major role in weight management, increased energy, cardiovascular risk reduction, stress reduction, better sleep, etc. Leading a sedentary lifestyle, in contrast, can have serious consequences to your health, especially as you get older.
What to do?
Getting started with an exercise programme after many years can be daunting and confusing. What kind of exercise is right for you? Is it walking, or running? What should you do to ‘tone up’ sagging areas? Should you lift weights, and if so, should they be heavy or light? And HOW should you lift them to avoid getting injured?
Also, you might not feel comfortable stepping into a commercial gym full of young, fit-looking people confidently pumping away and making you feel out of place.
Welcome to our private Personal Training studio!
As a dedicated, private personal training studio, we operate on a different business model than typical gyms. Actually, we operate more like a dental clinic!
First, we don’t have gym members in our studio. There are no crowds, there is no confusion.
All our clients attend by appointment, and during their exercise session they are continuously supervised by their assigned trainer, who never leaves them.
Before commencing your training, we consult with you, assess you, set realistic, reachable goals with you and establish your capabilities and limitations for exercise.
Based on this information, your trainer can provide an appropriate exercise programme for you, regardless of how fit, unfit, young or old you are. We make it a point that you can walk out of your first training session with a smile!
Making regular training appointments with your trainer is the best way to commit yourself to attending exercise sessions on a regular basis. This promotes exercise adherence, builds new, healthy habits and puts you on the right track towards building a healthier, fitter body.
