News, articles & interesting stuff

I love walking, reading and I'm forever looking for new ideas, tips, recipes etc. So the perfect combination for me is listening to podcasts while I'm out walking, doing more than one thing at once ticks my box! At home I have at least 3 books on the go at any one time. I don't get through them very quickly but I like to have options. Normally I have a couple of work related books and one thriller or other fiction for when I just want to switch of. Below are links to some of the stuff I'm into at the moment:

In the autumn of 2019 I qualified as a Movnat trainer, "fitness for the real world". There are some great free workouts on their website https://www.movnat.com

MovNat is about movement. It is what we practice and what we teach. Anyone can gain from improving their movement, from elite athletes to those quite out of shape. You don’t have to be fit to move, you have to move to be fit.

I'm currently studying to become a health coach with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN), the largest nutrition school in the world. Their unique take on what they refer to as primary (what nourishes you off the plate) and secondary food (what nourishes you on the plate), makes it a perfect fit for my Core Coaching business. It brings together everything I do, looking at the whole person and all aspects of life.

Our mission is to play a crucial role in improving health and happiness, and through that process, create a ripple effect that transforms the world.

I love this book (The 4 Pillar Plan by Dr Chatterjee) and it really resonates with how I teach. Health has become far to complicated, relatively small changes can create big changes. Health and fitness has become too focused on how we look rather than how we feel and there is SO much more to health than diets and exercise. He has since written a further 2 more books, 'The Stress Solution' and 'Feel better in 5', both brilliant. For more information visit his website drchatterjee.com

 

Katy Bowman has been a big inspiration to me over the last couple of years and she has completely changed the way I view exercise and movement. Her book 'Move your DNA' is a real eye opener and I highly recommend it.
