Sometimes we as humans think about our health in the same way. We feel overwhelmed at the thought of eating healthy and exercising. We think we need to make big changes/improvements if we make any at all. When in reality, we are similar to the window. The previous owner had simply neglected the general maintenance to keep the window from working optimally.
Clients often tell me - I've tried dieting before and it doesn't work...I used to have a gym membership, but I get intimidated by those around me, so I don't go...or, I hired a personal trainer for a month, and it was fun, but it was too hard for me, so I quit. That's the thing. Short term dieting doesn't work. It is about eating a consistent healthy diet. Gym memberships work for some people, but are not for everyone. What we need is a general and consistent maintenance lifestyle...looking at our holistic health. Balancing in our families, friends, and loved ones. Focusing on one element of health and forgetting the others is not ideal for creating resilience. Finding ways to bring FUN into your wellness plan, and creating healthy lifestyle habits, instead of 2 or 3 month surges is going to help you weather life's storms...just like re-caulking your windows will help your home to withstand the elements.
Does this still sound overwhelming? E3 Twin Ports, LLC is here to help you with your maintenance plan. We will help you assess your overall health, help you realize goals to lead a healthy, active and meaningful life, and then we will help educate you on ways to create realistic healthy lifestyle habits. How? We offer one of a kind group programming - we combine science-based wellness coaching with outdoor recreation programming. These are 6 week courses that provide an opportunity for you to begin creating a habit of movement in the outdoors, while learning about yourself, your goals, and how and why to create a holistically healthy lifestyle. We enjoy teaching everyone how to age youthfully! Our next programs begin Mid-June, and space is limited, so register early! (info @ e3twinports.com)
We are also starting a community outreach project tomorrow morning. We have heard that there are very few programs for people with a "middle ground" fitness level. So we are starting a free Wednesday morning fitness group! 6:30 a.m. anyone interested can meet at the Merritt Park playground, and we will run, bike, and do body weight strength training. We'll switch it up each week, and tomorrow, we will head out for a 30 minute jog - using a mix of trails and sidewalks.
