We are living in an age of an epidemic – obesity, poor diet and many conditions which
are fully or partly lifestyle created.
But does it matter to you or me?
For sure it does! And more importantly, there is something we can all do about it.
Here’s a picture of me recently – giving away my old shirts because they no longer fit, they were just too large!
Now, these were custom made shirts – designed to fit me and my body shape, so they weren’t cheap and it took me a long time to give them up.
However, as you can see, I just don’t fit them any more and it was time to pass them on.
So, over the past few years I’ve dropped 15kg – from 95kg to 80kg and from a tight 36″ waist to a comfortable 32 to 33″ waist.
But that’s no all!
In addition, I’ve added back 4 more kg – but this time as lean muscle – not just fat.
And, building muscle has helped me start running, complete my first 5k run in 2013 and now, in 2015, I’m setting personal bests for 10k runs! If it means anything to you, I’m focused on a 48 minute 10k – which is fast! Actually, it is 15 minutes faster than my first practice 10k.
However, it isn’t just about how you look – or numbers – its also about how you feel!
I now buy slim fit shirts only – I’ve changed my waredrobe and wear clothes that fit and make me feel good.
But, more importantly, I’ve got more energy and enthusiasm for life!
So, that’s why I’m helping other business owners and employees to get fit and health – get more energy and so achieve more at work, at home and in life.
I started on my own with our fitness and clean 9 website – FitNW – but now I’ve been joined by other business owners and I’m happy to be able to help them both get fit, keep fit and grow an income business.
As our website has become more and more successful, we’ve started building our Facebook pages too – you can come and see what we are up to here – FitNW on Facebook.
It took a while for the ‘health’ penny to drop – and perhaps it is part of getting a little wiser – but I’ve seen too many successful entrepreneurs and business owners wreck their health for their companies and then fail to enjoy the fruits of success.
So, for us now, it is health and fitness first. And we can use our leadership skills to help our customers and business owners achieve more income but also better health too!
