Why Gyms & Personal Trainers Are More Important Than Ever

I recently published one of the biggest articles I have ever written about how the lock-downs have weakened our immune system and made us more vulnerable to illness and disease. If ever there was a time when we needed to focus on our health it is right now, yet the Government and the media are completely ignoring the importance of educating the community about eating well and exercise. Some people in the media claim we do not need gyms and you can easily get in shape in your own home and save a ton of money. I can tell you from from being in the fitness industry for over 15 years I can count on one hand the amount of people who succeed working out in their own home. To think people can work it out themselves is craziness and delusional and you only have to look at the statistics of people putting on weight during the lock-down to confirm this. Anyway I hope you enjoy reading this info-graphic and it provides you with the information you need to improve your health.

Additional Resources to Help You with Exercise & Nutrition

For more ideas and information on specific topics I may not have covered in detail be sure to check out our INDEX PAGE on the website that has over 200 of our best articles. These are all sorted into categories for quick reference so you can find what you are after more easily. There is two great reports with a ton of information relating to exercise and nutrition you can download below.



We all must take responsibility for our health right now and we must strive to do all the things shown in this info-graph. We cannot rely on the Government or the Medical community to guide us on this for they pay no attention to anything to do with eating well and exercising as they think everything can be solved with a magic pill. It is during times of immense stress that we must look after our health or our immune system will suffer, and as we all know this can lead to disastrous consequences. There may not be a vaccine for a long time, and it may not even be fully effective so we must do everything in our power to lead healthy lives as possible. Employing strategies to improve the five factors that influence our immune system is vital and the best news is you will be in the best shape of your life. For all of these things you should be doing anyway.
