You are YOUR responsibility!
by Hellena Ajani

Would you consider YOURSELF as part of your regular responsibility or simply the vehicle that enables you to fulfil your responsibilities? Did you know that the first set of responsibility you have is to yourself? When was the last time you took responsibility for yourself!

Obstacle or Excuse?
by Spiros Giannatos

Yesterday, a client of mine kept on saying how difficult it is to find time for him amidst work, chores and kids. His goal is to run 2 times per week, so he becomes fitter.

by Alex Croucher

I love how the power of the mind in sport can be harnessed to be your super power, it can break your opponents, it can take you to the next level, but for most it is the biggest limiter. It is an area that is over looked by so many athletes and teams.

1) Pay yourself first – This is one of the best ways to save money fast. Rather than waiting to the end of the month to save (when there will be little cash left), I always move some money the day after payday.

What is mindful eating?
by Helen Wong

Mindful eating is focusing on what we are eating and how we are eating. It is feeling food in your mouth, in your stomach and feeling the pleasure of eating. It is a long-term sustainable approach to eating, where weight loss and being disease-free is the by-product of this approach.

Where we store fat
by Helen Wong

Jelly tummy...Thunder thighs... Bingo Wings...all terms that we jokingly refer to our unwanted wobbly bits.

We spend so much time looking in the mirror, analyzing and agonizing over our body shape.
