At present the health and fitness industry is in a position to take advantage of the rise in obesity. As our social and physical environment moves towards a habitat of convenience, habitual everyday health practices such as walking to the corner shops or cooking a home meal are getting closer and closer to the brink of extinction.
Once you’ve decided to take that step and invest in your own
health today, doing things right the first time will help you save
financially and help you reach your health goals much faster.
From a public health professionals perspective, due to the exposure of reality television shows such as the ‘biggest loser’ we see a ‘figure of health’ as someone that exercises regularly, eats healthy and slim enough to receive a few compliments about their figure every now and then.
Although, I may not agree with fast weight loss and some of the strategies ‘weight loss shows’ advocate, I fully support the message of getting those that have health risk factors to change their lifestyle to greater health. I still believe prevention is the best cure and waiting for our health to deteriorate before we act is not the ideal approach for improving health on a community scale. For that reason, I urge you to invest in your health now regardless whether you think you need it or not. Once you’ve decided to take that step and invest in your own health today, doing things right the first time will help you save financially and help you reach your health goals much faster.
So you ask, in regards to my health how do I do things right the first time? Seek advice from the right health professional. Fortunately, there are many institutes that support health. Unfortunately there are many institutes that hand out accreditations and qualifications after a 10-weekcrash course in one particular discipline. Although this increases the number of health professionals in our community, my advice to you is to seek a health professional that has completed a university health degree.
Those that have completed a university health degree have the insight and tools to adapt to your health needs. Like any other profession, university health graduates have dedicated years (rather than weeks) into building their knowledge in multiple disciplines of health to ensure you receive the right information in regards to your health.
Health Identity has services and programs developed by a number health professionals with a qualifications beyond a university bachelor degree. Whether you need to eat healthier, exercise more or have a lifestyle make-over Healthy Identity has the team to make this happen. So make that step towards healthier tomorrow’s today and see one of our healthy coaches now.
