TOM has been a personal trainer for more
than 10 years, originating in Hungary and
training athletes all over Europe.
Some insight into Personal Training from Tom
Everyone knows that regular exercise is the
best way to lose weight, tone up the body and
reduce unwanted fat. A well maintained exercise
routine can also help reduce many health risks,
including diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer,
and heart disease. Functional training can assist
in injury rehabilitation, back pain and athlete
specific fitness. Any exercise will assist with
treatment for anxiety and depression, strengthen
your bones and increase your confidence making
us just want to smile!
No time to train?
We have all been guilty of trying a number of
excuses such as busy lifestyle, too tired, can't afford
it, don't feel well, have a headache etc. They are
warranted but easily overcome when working
with a personal trainer. In no time, you will notice
those headaches and lethargic feelings disappear
once you are exercising effectively.
By working with a personal trainer you can
optimise your invested time and effort and
minimise risk. Where you may think it is
unaffordable it will, in effect, save you time and
money long term. I even offer small group
personal training for less than half the cost of
one-on-one but with all the same benefits. So
what is your excuse now?
Perhaps you exercise regularly, but are not
achieving the results you had hoped for. It's
common for the benefits of exercise to "plateau"
as your body becomes accustomed to an exercise
program. When all the hard work and sweat are
not having the desired effect, it's often hard to
A personal trainer can "shake up" your fitness
regime by adding variety to your exercise
program, and providing you with that much-
needed extra edge.
Just Starting Out?
If you're just starting out,find a personal trainer
who is capable of putting together a well-
balanced fitness program, guiding you through
each phase with step-by-step instruction, and
giving you the requisite knowledge and tools
needed to adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
If you can't make it to visit us at The Fit Pit and
try something professionally structured and
results oriented, there are some great trainers in
the Redlands working at gyms or out of their own
studio. Give one a try and enjoy the results but
remember to find out about them first and
ensure your trainer is dedicated to you and your
needs and you are not just another number...
after all, it is all about you.
NUTRITIONIST Natalie Wight, of Revive
Weight Control at Alexandra Hills,believes
we need to embrace a more holistic
approach to weight loss that focuses on the three
key elements -- mind, menu and movement.
"My history as a naturopathic nutritionist is based
on whole foods and a natural approach to life.
"Calorie counting and shakes might work in a
controlled environment and for a short period of
time, but not long term.
"It's about educating people on healthy food,
helping them with mental focus and increasing
their movement," she

GIVEN the chance, most of us would change
something about the way we look. Three-
quarters of women and two-thirds of men
think they are overweight, according to a 2007
body image survey by CoreData,Australia.
At the same time, 95 per cent of women worry
about things such as body shape and cellulite.
More bad news for women: they are more critical
than men about their appearance, according to a
recent international review of body image studies
by the Social Issues Research Centre in Britain.
Up to eight out of 10 women are dissatisfied with
their reflection in the mirror and more than half see
a distorted image, says researcher Kate Fox.
Body image dissatisfaction is an increasingly
troublesome problem linked to physical and
mental illness, says Professor Susan Paxton, head of
the school of psychological science at La Trobe
University in Victoria.
She says poor self-image has been shown to be
related to depression, low self-esteem, anxiety and
eating disorders. People who are unhappy with
their body are also less likely to exercise in public
because they feel self-conscious, she says.
Clearly, it is time we changed the way we feel
"Loving your body brings with it personal
empowerment and healthy living," says Natalie
Wight, nutritionist at Revive Weight Control Clinic,
Alexandra Hills. True self-appreciation, however,
comes with positive action and thoughts working
as one, "Natalie says.
"Focus on the positive, not the negative, and it
will help boost your confidence."
It is the"you"inside that counts.But where would
you be without your body? Besides letting you play
sport, make love, lie on the beach, or go to dinner
with friends, your body is the vehicle in which you
enjoy every aspect of life.
Getting healthy boosts your body image,
numerous studies have found, including a 2002
report by Canadian researchers Kerry McGannon
and John Spence. They found that losing weight
and taking part in physical activity resulted in small,
significant improvements in self-esteem.
Treat your body like your best friend with good
nourishment and it will love you back.
Think about all the things you could accomplish
with the time and energy you use worrying about
your body.Get out there and get on with it.
Unless we love our body, have a healthy
relationship with food and embrace physical
activity, sustainable weight loss will remain elusive.
Chances are you don't love, love, love your body, but why not? We reveal how to ditch the self-loathing
and learn to love the body you're in.
