Start young to build a wealth of fitness
Age catches up with all of us eventually and keeping fit and healthy is one way to help slow down the aging process. Human Movements co-owner, Marianne Poole says: ‘‘The best time to start any fitness programme is when you are young. I look at it from the point of view that if you invest in your fitness now you will have a wealth of fitness later in life, which will also help to keep you healthy and energised for longer.’’
Human Movements are not advocates of quick fixes and will help you make realistic and gradual changes to your lifestyle, including eating plans and exercise, that will provide you with a lifetime of fitness.
‘‘Exercise doesn’t have to be excessively strenuous and here at Human Movements we encourage our members to work within their abilities. We start with achievable goals and work towards encouraging members to regularly update and change their programme so they remain motivated while consistently improving and extending their health and fitness. At the same time the programme should be fun with a really good feel good factor,’’ Marianne says.
To help motivate younger people to develop a lifetime of fitness, Human Movements have a wide range of fitness programmes. First is to have an initial consultation and then each programme is specifically designed for that individual.
‘‘We have programmes designed for anyone who wants to improve their physical conditioning, sporting prowess, and whether you are playing at a highly competitive level or simply want to enjoy getting the most out of your sport. Focus is put on training and conditioning as well as event preparation and nutrition to get you physically and mentally prepared for your sport,’’ says Marianne.
‘‘We have programmes focusing on reducing body fat, improving muscle tone and body shape while increasing fitness and vitality, helping you achieve the body you want along with the motivation and inspiration to maintain the results long term.’’
Other programmes are designed to help build muscle and tone your physique using simple exercises and planned nutrition.
‘‘Everyone is different in how their bodies build and retain muscle and by using the correct nutrition you can focus the food you eat directly into developing the physique you want to achieve.
Programmes are personalised to suit each member, by an experienced and professional consultant. The programmes involve setting and realising achievable goals, regular monitoring of progress along with nutrition planning and cardio/ fitness training,’’ Marianne says.
‘‘Most importantly we provide the motivation through constant monitoring and encouragement of our members throughout their programmes. We want to pass on our passion for good health and fitness. You will have to work at it, but you will reap the rewards.’’
Human Movements is open from 6am until 8.30pm Mondays to Fridays and from 9am till noon over the weekends and for more information on these programmes or to find out more about general membership, getting fit and staying healthy, give the Human Movements team a call on (06) 3561570, check them out on Facebook or simply call in and talk to them at 97 Taonui Street, Palmerston North.
