Function for life, not exercise

Exercise TodayWe hear it a lot these days, it is one of the new things that personal trainers and instructors like to say they use and clients like to hear it’s what they are doing. I think we need to be clear on what function is especially where exercise for gains and exercise for lifestyle are concerned. Function for life is a healthy and mobile body, a well balanced approach aimed at maintaining and sustaining a good quality of life, not exercising to excess or dieting on and off for the rest of our lives. When we exercise for development be it sport, work or aesthetic we aim to improve on what we are, in order to do this we need to grow to push past and out of our own comfort zones this requires more effort, focus and specific exercises, it requires time and effort that for some would be difficult to manage around daily life and other priorities.

At all of our weight loss retreats, Derbyshire, Worcestershire, Dorset, Spain and all the sites we plan to open this year, this is a focal point. Not everyone is looking for the kind of exercise regime or intensity that is delivered in most gyms, studios, boot camps or weight loss retreats but some are and in order to deliver long term results it is important to make the long term changes based on what suits you and your lifestyle, to make it manageable and sustainable and to better understand what you need vs what you want, this is what we will focus on at our first course of 2017, our Dorset weight loss retreat will be a variety of everything from intensive exercise to mindful movement. It will be holistic and it will be results orientated because even in the group environment it will be an individual experience.
