Welcome to the “Your Fitness at Work” Show
I’m thrilled to be able to finally say we have a live audio show.
For those of you who know me, you will already know, if you get me started on a subject I care about, I like to talk! So it only seemed fitting that an audio show/ podcast would be the ideal fit for getting ideas, thoughts and discussion points out there. But talking to people is one thing, talking to an empty room is another. And I’ve been using the excuses of needing better equipment, acoustics or whatever for too long. So I have just grabbed the bull by the horns and jumped in to get things going.
About this show:
Health & Fitness information has never been more available and it feels like there are new products, new facilities, new methods and the like, popping up practically every day.
So why is it that, in the Western World, when we should be better armed than ever before, obesity levels are continuing to grow and the strain on the health service, as a result of poor health and fitness, is continuing to rise?
Mainly because the information, in general, is not designed to be helpful or actionable, but rather to appeal to your ‘wishes and wants’ and help you part with your cash in order to get that ‘quick fix’ solution.
Most people have regular jobs or regular obligations at least. Whether you are a stay at home parent, an entrepreneur or you have more of a standard 9-5 (which these days usually ends up being more 9-7 or more) job, the fact is that you tend to need to fit your fitness routine in around your responsibilities rather than prioritise them.
But in trying to do so, most people start to look for advice from the most illogical of places. Celebrity diets and workouts continue to be best sellers and weight fluctuations in these individuals remain high profile media events.
However, the people mostly in the public eye are those who are paid to look their best. So looking after themselves is in their job description and something they are able to dedicate a huge amount of time and resources into achieving.
For most of us, that is very far from the case. And this show is here to try and redress the balance by giving actionable ideas and tips, along with opinions and views on the products and resources that are out there, in order to ensure you are able to make improvements immediately and in a way that is sustainable.
