The World Health Organization recently reported women live longer however they are not living healthier lives. They have reported societies fail to meet the health care needs of women at the key moments of their lives especially in adolescent and older ages. “Its time to pay girls and women back, to make sure that they get the care and support they need to enjoy a fundamental human right at every moment of their lives, that is their right to health, said WHO director General Dr. Chan at the launch of the report, Women and Health.
Imagine living in poor health for more than 5 years, did you know that works out to be 260 days of poor health, just imagine what you would have accomplished in this time with this lack of health. I’m not suggesting women have not achieved much, however I am questioning at what cost to there health did this do.
97% of adults agree that exercise is vital to their physical and mental health BUT only 31% of Australians are active, SO 69% of Australians are not active? At least 505 individuals beginning an exercise program will drop out within six months.
If this seems familiar or not surprising to you, then take charge and make a change. While there is no shame in admitting where you are at considering the mixed messages issued through the health and fitness or diet industry. There are very few organizations actually providing realistic, effective and efficient approaches to breaking through the poor health barrier and helping people to increase energy, and vitality.
Having trained in the health and fitness industry for over a decade I have seen proof and almost an awakening that once people start they cannot believe how little time the exercise takes and produces the most efficient result. You see most people don’t exercise because of not enough time, too lazy, not knowing what to do, no desire to be active, weather, financial reasons and the list goes on. While spending there time on not doing exercise the time could be spent getting it done. The question is what is your time worth?
How much is enough?
Now remember if you have had 5 years of poor health and no exercise we’ve got a lot of catching up to do. But don’t despair because the health benefits you will now receive will far out weight the effort anytime.
I have to be honest here, like most people time is a precious commodity so let’s make use of it wisely. This is not about working out for long periods of time and following some crazy fad diet. No it’s about being realistic and to begin with progressive changes to achieve the lean, strong and healthy body you desire in just minutes per week.
You can do 2-3 workouts per week for 15-30 minutes is enough to produce results you are after to reduce poor health. I ask you if you don’t want to continue the next 5 years with poor health then I am suggesting to you this is exactly what you should be doing.
If you need further guidelines then there is no better way than to learn from people who have done it, especially if you want to fast track.
