Flu season is here and we all want to maintain our Health and Fitness goals. It is always important to listen to your body and only push when you have adequate energy levels. Remember muscles have amazing memories and cardio can always be regained. Below I have outlined simple rules to follow for when it is appropriate to continue hitting the gym or your favourite workout classes and when it is not.
The Golden Rule:
ABOVE THE NECK: YES
BELOW THE NECK: NO
Lets go into a little more depth with this Golden Rule.
Above the neck: (YES)
Remember that as important as your health and fitness goals are you wont ever achieve them if you push too hard and ignore your body's reaction. You only live once and you only have one body so treat it well :)
Feeling weak, anxious and unconnected to my body lead me to start exercising. I joined a dance class once a week and after every dance class I had a glow about me, and it wasn't just from the sweat that I built up in class, it was something more. I realized it was the endorphins that were being produced from the physical activity I was doing. That was 13 years ago. Since then I have devoted my career life to helping other humans, like yourself, kick butt in their health and fitness goals. If you're looking for a helping hand or not even knowing where you should start... I would be more than honoured to help!
