PROMOTING A BALANCED, HEALTHY LIFESTYLE!
Hirsch’s Somerset West held a Business Network event recently, with a strong emphasis on health. Delegates were treated to a double-billing talk based on exercise and eating correctly to ensure a balanced, healthy lifestyle.
Ashley Adams, a personal trainer with Virgin Active explained the different classes offered at the gym – each choreographed with music to encourage the participant whilst exercising. Said Ashley “Exercise is necessary for everybody. You can even devise your own exercises and break them into 10 minute sessions throughout the day.”
Jan Pretorius, owner of BFITfood – described his regime as a former weight lifter. Said Jan, “There is a fine balance between exercise and adding nutrients to your body. People need to educate themselves about how to eat effectively.” Jan suggested using honey as an alternative to sugar and training yourself to eat smaller portions.
A lively discussion ensued regarding the use of free range meat and organic vegetables. Hydroponics was promoted as a method of producing healthier and larger vegetables in the home. In closing, delegates were given a free-entry pass to a Virgin Active gym of their choice and a sample BFITfood meal to take away and enjoy.
