diet needs for high energy training

Category : John Davies, Training, USP Labs

The peculiarity of the modern health, fitness and exercise market is that it spends the vast majority of time making many concerns sound highly complicated when they are the precise opposite. Partially because of a society far removed from the lifestyle of its parents or grand-parents generation and somewhat innocently many common notions have been lost but without a doubt much is related to the “song and dance” of generating sales. Exercise and diet need not be complicated and once you prune them to their essentials they are in-fact quite “simple” and the road to optimal health is straight ahead.

Whether training for sport, aesthetics or developing a proper fitness model in the workplace, many very simple approaches will derive the greatest benefits.

keys to an effective workplace fitness model

Category : John Davies, Training, USP Labs

Developing a workplace fitness program is far from a luxury item of highly successful businesses but in-fact a necessity for employers watchful over their financial “bottom-line” in lieu of exploding healthcare expenses. While I hope business leaders are enacting such approaches for conscientious reasons of caring for the lives of employees it also must be considered from the straight financial cost to ensure workplace fitness programs are establishes in every size business.

There are no magical solutions to this problem, nor can it be swept under the rug any longer as the perfect storm of an aging population, runaway obesity and soaring healthcare costs can only be met by a proactive approach that goes straight at the issue.

building the workplace fitness model

Category : John Davies, Training, USP Labs

As the world grapples with an obesity epidemic the fact is undisputable that if left unchecked it will not only cause endless health problems with the citizenry but cripple economies. Managing the obesity epidemic is not simply a need to ensure the personal health of the citizens but undeniable fact for national economic survival. This is evidenced by the daunting predictions that health care costs will treble by 2015 with estimated national expenditure in the United States alone of $4 trillion, $950 billion associated to obesity as the total figure later approaches twenty percent of GDP. From both the humanitarian and financial bottom-line on the need of managing the obesity epidemic must sit at the task one for the health, fitness and exercise industry.

To solve this problem, a new route must be taken as it is clear “health and fitness” must be embraced within both the youth market, in both the home as well school systems and the most efficient route to adults, the workplace.

The next series of steps comes in the workplace which in many ways is the classroom for improving the health of the adult population in teaching proper dietary habits and merging exercise into daily lives. Whether sponsored by employers realizing it will reduce employee healthcare expenses or proactive government programs recognizing the same savings, the four major areas to be implemented in the workplace are:

the first steps of “workplace fitness”

Category : John Davies, Training, USP Labs

As the obesity epidemic shifts into top gear, the human cost will be enormous for countless generations to come. It is a near impossibility to both understand the magnitude of problems for those spiralling towards obesity but the children who have never lived within a society that sufficiently promotes healthy activities as well as diet. That might be the greatest test to come as many when you suggest “healthy options” many have never been exposed to them from their childhood and hence find such adjustments a virtual “re-wiring” of habits embedded in their daily lives.

This applies to countless activities from walking to the store or work if under an hour, to eating only items from local farms if not your own backyard because if you are not exposed to such a lifestyle from your youth the shift is enormous. I know this quite well as many aspects I personally consider natural, i.e. walking many hours each day, playing recreational sports and only eating whole foods (i.e. “simplicity”), is extremely foreign to most.
