Is Health Related Fitness a Choice? Is it a Process?

Health related fitness starts with one single step. It is called choice. Your choice to be in charge of your health.

Are you someone who trusts your doctor and other experts blindly and gives them total control of your aches and pains?

Experts and guides are valuable in all aspects of life, the trouble occurs when your own intuition and self-understanding of your welfare is lost.

Do you have a hard time getting up in the morning? Do you need to lose some extra pounds? Do you dread exercise?

Most of us, including myself, long to be different-to live healthier, more disciplined lives. Yet our most determined efforts to change very often come to nothing. Why haven't we made health related fitness our top priority?

Ellen DeGeneres couldn't have said it better herself: "I gotta work out. I keep saying it all the time. I keep saying I gotta start working out. It's been about two months since I've worked out. And I just don't have the time. Which odd. Because I have the time to go out to dinner. And uh..and watch tv. And get a bone density test. And uh.. try to figure out what my phone number spells in words."

I have a passion for living well and I am the happiest when helping others. That's how I came to reinvent myself and decided to put both areas together.

You will learn about health related fitness on this web site and about the work of John W. Travis, MD, MPH, one of the founders of the modern wellness movement in the United States.

He created an interactive 12 dimensions of wellness program that revolves around the whole person.

I like his program because it focuses on the areas of your life you are most motivated to change. It offers guidance, tools and resources to transform this new awareness into lasting changes in one’s life.

Dr. Travis firmly believes that we are the agents of change in our own environments, and in our emotional and spiritual lives. He also believes that we are responsible for our own health and that of the planet.

When you become aware of healthy choices that work for you, you start living your life on purpose and you impact your wellness.

This impact on yourself will result in positive effects for your family, in your relationships, in the community and eventually on our planet.

It all starts with the recognition that your body is wise, your mind is wise, and your soul is wise. It's time to discover that.

I hope to encourage you to find opportunities to have greater control and greater responsibility for your health.

Be inspired. Take action. Be in control of your health!

Remember, any positive impact on your life will impact your family, your relationships, the community and eventually our planet.
