In My View… Fit For Business
Published 00:00 on 26 Jan 2018
I have been in the fitness industry for quite some time now and love racing and competing in long distance events. But I also have a passion for business and how fitness relates to business performance. One thing I have learnt from studying for my business degree and other fitness related courses is that to be mentally fit you also have to be physically fit. I have always lived my life living and breathing health and fitness and since running my own Personal Training business I ensure that my clients are conveyed this message.
Physical activity helps protect you from heart disease and stroke, high blood pressure, noninsulin-dependent diabetes, obesity, back pain, osteoporosis, and can improve your mood and help you to better manage stress. It is very easy to be 'busy' all the time when it comes to business, achieving goals and family but it is important to take care of your health and well-being too as after all, you are your business. Your business does not succeed unless you are at the top of your game both physically and mentally.
Being an Ironman athlete it is very easy for me to preach about how much exercise everyone should be doing but it should suit your personality and personal schedule.
Putting time into improving yourself physically is vital because the bottom line is, that all you have is your health. All other positive energy will flow over into all other aspects of your life as well as your business. It takes determination, perseverance, motivation and the desire to succeed and this is what physical training and business is all about. Above all find something that is fun!
