When you exercise, your brain chemistry changes.
That undeniable rush of energy, motivation and confidence after a good workout is pretty hard to beat and has the power to lift you up even during the most challenging times.
The truth is, everything to do with our physical and mental health is so closely linked that a 360-degree approach to fitness is going to get you the biggest, healthiest and most sustainable results. So alongside movement, I also talk to my clients about nutrition, recovery, sleep and stress-reduction to create the ultimate reset button for your mind, body and soul.
So my approach isn’t just about the workout itself. It’s a gradual lifestyle shift which will help you to move more, eat better, boost your mood, fire up your energy levels, improve your sleep and reset your mind to ignite a fitter, stronger, healthier, happier you.
Train Hard, Recover Harder
Because as much as we love it, it’s not always about the endorphin hit.
Our body adapts to the way we most frequently move or sit, so if we’re spending a lot of time hunched over a laptop or slouched on the sofa (hello lockdown) this can lead to tight muscles, poor posture and a build-up of blocked energy, leaving you feeling lethargic and unmotivated. Add a heavy strength training session in to the mix and your body will be crying out for some TLC.
My coaching includes restorative movement and assisted stretching throughout your programme. This will be tailored to suit your body, address any imbalances and will mobilise your body to relieve tightness, improve blood flow and get your energy flowing more freely.
The result? You’ll feel calmer, lighter, happier and more in tune with your body, as well as improving your movement and reducing your risk of injury when it’s time to power up and hit those strength and conditioning sessions again.
