the productivity of power training

Category : John Davies, Training, USP Labs

Throughout my career in the health, fitness and sports conditioning market I have seen the market shift from a series of systems based upon common-sense and accepted principles to one that is virtually entirely sales and marketing driven. Where once stood a group that was relatively unified in its approach is now a splintered lot and spends more considering marketing tactics, slogans, SEO and website landing pages.

While there are naturally exceptions to the latter comment, the truth of the matter is that much of the time in the industry is spent on developing phrases to entice the marketplace. An endless series of products have been introduced with many holding true to the idea that it is the panacea for the sole reason that it is their meal ticket in the industry.

That will be harsh to some but the fact of the matter is no one piece of equipment is the panacea and what remains are tried and true principles that can be applied to any setting. In-fact the evolution of exercise from the 19th century recognized general athletic needs and though rarely considered in this light, applied strength training in a highly time sensitive and productive manner.

All physical exercise begins with;

winning the battle to lose weight

Category : John Davies, Training, USP Labs

The complexities of weight loss, particularly that of a significant amount, is well beyond “simple” or the common approach of proper diet and exercise but strikes at the core of modern living and style of life. In-fact many of the common habits of modern leaving fuel obesity and unlikely to change given they are deeply engrained in society. Couple in rising costs of food, concerns of soil and water contamination, “eating healthy” has become a complex formula of theory in application with some very stern realities.

The final point might be the grimmest of all because while I can talk of “hunting and gathering” high quality food choices they may not be available in your region. There are many well-established metropolitan regions, each to remain nameless, that I know when travelling to my normal diet habits will spiral downward and immediately impact upon my level of health and fitness.

Soil erosion, environmental damage and clean water supplies have further laid question to even for the healthy food shopper, what is the nutrient levels of so-called “organic” or other high-quality products.

Feeling a bit overwhelmed by the reality of the future of food choices, then consider the oft-mentioned “dirty-dozen” (Apples, Bell Peppers, Celery, Cherries, Grapes (some regions), Lettuce, Nectarines, Peaches, Pears, Potatoes, Strawberries and Spinach) of fruits and vegetables that retain high levels of pesticides, virtually forcing your hand of buying from high quality certified organic farms. While costly, for overall health it is make use of certified organic items from this group and of-course, when possible grown in your own backyard garden.

Suddenly this “simplicity” plan has turned considerably complicate because your hunting and gather healthy fruits and vegetables requires understand more of its production and hopefully making it fit into your household budget.

If that seems daunting, realize that is likely going to get considerably worse.

steps to winning the weight loss battle

Category : John Davies, Training, USP Labs

Let us dispel the notion that losing weight is “easy” as given much of the world is racing towards obesity and its related illness it is clearly not.

For those plagued with obesity, in the broad majority of situations reversing this issue requires changes to lifestyle. This is not “easy” or “simple” and often involves learning habits and skills that are foreign and quite possibly requires skill sets that a person has never been exposed to in their life.

This habits or skill-sets, once common, have disappeared with the massive shifts in our society over the last fifty-some years. Whether it is manual labour, shopping habits from local grocers, active participation in recreational sports or cooking skills, the landscape of our society is radically different than before.

Reducing rates of obesity are a mighty test but even greater when you realize virtually every aspect of our daily lives fuels the problem.

build and create honest relationships in your community

Category : Renegade Business Network

Within a recent question and answer period I was asked of the prevailing economy and my reason for guarded long-term optimism. I suspect the interviewer was expecting me to tap-dance away from the issue or certainly not respond that the prevailing problems were both easy to predict and identifiable.

The great problem that exists, despite the enormous capabilities of the Global Village, is the flight from creativity and evaporation of pride in your work. We, as a whole, have forgotten how to create and nurture thought but instead cut and paste and run off the market with pride of building and sold as many widgets as possible.

The solution set starts with building, not via sales but relationships. Relate to the marketplace with earnest and for that matter, enter your profession not because of the financial bottom-line but your passion for what you do. Where possible repair previous problems, like the darning of socks from a bygone era, by listening to the marketplace and show them you care with a gleaming product you have pride in creating. Stop regurgitating sales pitches in every social media outlet and engage your clientele not because an expert claims it’s the route to a better profit margin but you truly care. Through your actions, the marketplace will be educated on your products and services, not because of sales pitches on the proverbial soap box but everyday commitment and always listening.

By building and creating honest relationships in your community the economy will not only rebound but flourish in time as the old principles of values and ethics in business become the new. Once that is grasped firmly and in conjunction with the super connectivity of our modern Global Village success will be imminent.
