If you are visiting this website, it is highly likely you have an interest in health, wellness and longevity. You likely already practice some type of movement, or are thinking of beginning one. The fact that exercise has its benefits is not exactly cutting edge information. We’ve gotten into more detail on the blog in the past HERE. Have a read if you are interested.

What is new and intriguing research about the impact of exercise is its ability to physically freeze time so to speak. A study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology found that exercising regularly may keep the body 30 years younger. 30 years, my friends! Do you realize what this means? If you are 50, you can have the body of a 20 year old. If you’re 70, your body can be that of a 40 year old. This is big news, given that with a simple infusion of a regular exercise practice in your life, you can have a body that is virtually identical in many ways to that of one 30 years younger. No drugs. No surgeries. No injections. No expensive tricks or gadgets.

If you are struggling to make exercise part of your regular routine, try thinking of something you loved to do as a kid. Perhaps you loved swimming or ice skating or jumping rope, or simply playing tag. One of the most effective ways to turn regular exercise into a habit is to find something you really enjoy doing.

Another way is to send this email to a friend to convince them to join you. (Have them subscribe in the meanwhile:). This could mean a walk together a few days a week, taking tennis lessons or a class at your local gym together. Accountability is key to compliance.

If you really don’t know where to start and need a coach, you’ve come to the right place. Both Fatima and I are experienced coaches. We can help you recognize and break through walls that may be holding you back from success or if you are already on this path, we can help you reach new plateaus. HERE is some more information on those programs.

In the next few weeks we will be sending out body part-by-body part mobility protocols to get the joints into gear for exercise. These protocols are ESSENTIAL. They will be a friend to you no matter where you are on the exercise spectrum. For those already exercising, they will boost performance and keep you moving injury free. For those just beginning, they will get you moving and insure you don’t hurt yourself as you get going.

For a full immersion into mobility (a really fun time and so much more), please join us in beautiful MALLORCA this summer. Can you believe it is only 5 months away? We’ve put together a spectacular agenda in the most amazing villa on the island. Come spend the week with us. See HERE to register. Spaces are limited. If you need some more convincing, see the images below!
