About my business
- Gabrielle will create an individualized exercise plan. It is created with an understanding of the demands of your lifestyle. These lifestyle demands are a huge factor that is looked at when creating an Exercise Plan. A mother with two young children has a very different lifestyle to a retired person over 65. Personalities and preferences also differ widely. One person may go for a 6am jog, another person may not be able think of a more unpleasant thing to do than that. Another example would be, some people prefer to exercise with others, some people like to exercise alone.
- Not only does Gabrielle teach you specific exercises, they teach you skills at maintaining exercise regularly in your life. Many people buy fancy exercise equipment, that end up dusty in the garage. Another common experience is people paying for gym memberships, and their attendance drops off completely. In fact gyms take in a higher amount of members than their facility can hold, counting on the fact that a large amount of people paying for gym memberships will very shortly stop attending either regularly or all together. It is not just being taught the exercises or having equipment to exercise on, it’s learning the skills to logistically incorporate exercise into ones unique lifestyle and to keep exercising over the long term.
- Healthy eating is not about strict dietary limitations, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you love. Rather, it’s about feeling great, having more energy, and stabilizing your mood. If you feel overwhelmed by all the conflicting nutrition and diet advice out there, you’re not alone. Contact Gabrielle to advise you for the best nutritional advice.
- People often think of healthy eating as an all or nothing proposition, but a key foundation for any healthy diet is moderation. But what is moderation? In essence, it means eating only as much food as your body needs. You should feel satisfied at the end of a meal, but not stuffed. Moderation is also about balance. Despite what certain fad diets would have you believe, we all need a balance of carbohydrates, protein, fat, fiber, vitamins, and minerals to sustain a healthy body.
- The goal of healthy eating is to develop a diet that you can maintain for life, not just a few weeks or months, or until you’ve hit your ideal weight. For most of us, that means eating less than we do now. More specifically, it means eating far less of the unhealthy stuff (refined sugar, saturated fat, for example) and replacing it with the healthy (such as fresh fruit and vegetables). But it doesn’t mean eliminating the foods you love. Eating bacon for breakfast once a week, for example, could be considered moderation if you follow it with a healthy lunch and dinner—but not if you follow it with a box of donuts and a sausage pizza. If you eat 100 calories of chocolate one afternoon, balance it out by deducting 100 calories from your evening meal. If you’re still hungry, fill up with an extra serving of fresh vegetables.
