Simply Fitness – taking the “complicated” out of fitness

Fitness does not have to be complicated.  I want to make getting in better shape much easier.  Here in the United States, we have a very unfit population.  Over 70 % of adults are overweight and obese.  That is something that needs to change.  There are many reasons why our population is in such bad shape.  But, those reasons don’t matter if we are not serious about changing that number.  It doesn’t have to be as complicated as most think it is.  Anyone can improve their fitness level.

I have been a personal trainer since 1988.  I have also taught university-level physical education courses part-time while maintaining a personal training business and owning a small fitness center.  I have a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science and a master’s degree in Sport Pedagogy.  I believe the healthiest minds never stop learning.  I am consistently reading about new research in fitness and related fields.

I believe critical thinking is very important.  I also believe people need to ask, “Why?” more than we tend to do.  Also, “Why not?”  And, of course, “How?” — the main focus of Simply Fitness.  How can we make improving our fitness level easier?

The human body is amazing!  It is also fairly logical.  It is made up of systems.  These systems are pretty consistent with how they function.  Yes, I know there are exceptions.  I’ve dealt with my share.  However, if we try the basics to get ourselves in better shape, we are likely to improve.  If we do not improve by working with the basic principles known to improve fitness, we have found the exception and can move forward.

If we do not try, we will not improve.  If we do not try, we will not know how being fit and living a healthy lifestyle feels.  It feels terrific!  The most common thing I hear from my clients after working with them for only a couple of weeks is that they feel better than they did before they started working out – more energy, better sleep, and overall happier.  That is after only a couple of weeks!  If they had not even tried, they would not know this feeling.
