My fitness journey started in my mid-teens with Shotokan Karate and weight training from home over 5 years. I then moved onto kickboxing that helped improve my fitness and confidence tremendously.
After taking different career paths that I realised eventually were not for me, I decided to go for it and at 34 I completed my level 2 fitness instructor qualification. This opened the door to help me achieve my boxing for fitness qualification and my personal training qualification in the consecutive years while improving my knowledge of exercise and nutrition.
Finding out how improving your health, fitness and nutrition can also improve the other aspects of your life, for example making you a better parent/partner/employee/employer, plus I know from experience how it helps with mental illness and conditions. Learning to adapt and overcome obstacles and finding out what works personally best for myself and other people is important because nutrition and exercise definitely is not “one size fits all”.
I have found it is about having a good relationship with food and building daily, healthy habits instead of crash dieting, meal replacement shakes or diet pills. Focus on your all-round strength and fitness then the aesthetics will follow! Give exercise everything you have, but at the same time enjoy the type of exercise and activity you do.
