“A journey of a thousand miles starts beneath one’s feet”
– Chinese proverb
If you’re struggling to kickstart your training or you’ve been putting your health on the back burner, I’ll be sharing my experience with getting back into action after playing my hand at depression.
It’s probably going to be a wee bit of a long one so scroll down for bullet points.
I’ve had a lot of time to think about this over the last 11 odd years working with people, meeting fitness standards, and especially the last 12 months when all forms of my “fitness” went out the window.
Let’s start with what I thought fitness was in the context of health and wellness:
- Be strong
- Be able to complete physically demanding tasks
- Be able to sustain prolonged undefined cardio (run, swim, row, ride etc)
- Be able to move
- Be within a set body fat percentage range
- Be able to physically do what you want, when you want, however you want.
