I've always been an advocate of my personal health through constant exercise, eating right and finding that balance in my life between work and pleasure. However, I first became a strong advocate of health in the community at large when I began working as an independent personal trainer. In dealing with clients with various mental and health stressors in their life and the impact these factors have taken on their life after years of neglect I began to see the real value in presenting fitness as a lifestyle rather than a means to an end. Longevity is everyone's goal in life (everyone wants to live to see their children and grandchildren grow old), but the real key to achieving this is self-reflection and looking at yourself from the outside in. You don't have to be an athlete or make the right health choices every single time to take care of yourself. It's all about making a commitment to a lifestyle change so your health and fitness become a priority and it doesn't get buried beneath all the distractions and pressures you face from outside influences and competing interests.
