WHAT IS HOLISTIC FITNESS?
As life becomes more stressful and our health is under attack daily from long hours of work, poor nutrition, and environmental toxins around us, it is becoming more important that we take our health into our own hands.
Traditional exercise and weight training were designed to tone and build muscle so our outward appearance is pleasing to the eye. But what about the physical condition of our inner body and our emotional state? How can we keep healthy inside and out?
Holistic Fitness addresses more than just muscle strength and endurance. It is a health protocol that seeks to:
Enhance the fitness of the complete physical body and emotional health.
Combine methods of stress reduction, diet, traditional exercise, and sleep habits.
Embraces the concept of balance between a fit looking exterior and a healthy thriving interior.
Blends physical and the mental by addressing every aspect of a healthy lifestyle, including one’s mental health.
Redefines fitness and health in making the main goal to consistently improve one’s overall well-being.
Imagine, instead of spending endless hours at the gym, simply going to a place where you can transform your body and mind at the same time.
By taking a holistic approach, you can get a workout, which should include exercising in a peaceful environment. This will assist in weight loss, toning, detoxification, increased bone density, reduced cortisol (stress hormone), increased human growth hormone, reduced aches, and pains, and so much more.
When you develop a more balanced lifestyle, you may be better able to make health and fitness a priority. In fact, “Fitness American Style” stated a national consumer study determined that major segments of the American population currently adopt a more holistic definition of good health and fitness.
Whether your goal is to lose weight, tone muscles, reduce chronic pain, re-energize, build up your immunity, detoxify, or just sleep better…you would leave feeling and looking your best! This is the idea behind holistic fitness.
It’s time to take advantage of this growing trend for greater health and minimized medical conditions through holistic health and fitness.
