Hi, welcome to Complementary Fitness classes
I look forward to seeing you and working out with you this week.

this Easter weekend, the clocks go forward an hour on Saturday night/Sunday morning– reminder to change all your clocks, watches etc. Enjoy Easter.

Something to think about:
22 March is World Water Day. Water is essential to our survival and to our health. Make sure that you drink enough good, clean water and if you don’t like the ‘taste’ of it on it’s own, add a slice of lemon or lime to it. Also make sure that you bring water with you to our classes and have a sip every now and then when necessary. Overall, aim to drink about 2L of water a day to nourish your skin, your cells, stay focussed and stay hydrated too.

There’s evidence that physical activity promotes mental wellbeing, prevents disease and improves quality of life. Poor nutrient uptake, high sugar diets, low fibre intake and chronic stress can all contribute to obesity. To minimise the risk, try to eat every 3 or 4 hours, reduce portion sizes and increase the amount of fruit and veg. It’s a good idea to eat protein at every meal to ensure that food stays in your stomach for longer, helping you to feel fuller for longer and it helps to keep blood sugars balanced.

I love when you read or hear quotes from people that make you think so here are some:
“When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new” – Dalai Lama

“You can be eating until your heart’s content but as long as you’re starving on a nutritional basis, your body is going to stay hungry to get those specific nutrients” – Jon Gabriel from Hungry for Change

“Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics” – Albert Einstein

“Don’t wait for some future time when you finally have the perfect body and weight. By holding false promises about what may or may not happen in the future, we stop ourselves from living now. Embrace your body and your life”. Mark David,

Lastly, you’ll love this funny one… ‘the trouble with quotes on the internet is that you can never know if they are genuine’ – Abraham Lincoln – ha
