Staying healthy and active doesn’t have to be complicated, it is the simple things we do that can make a big impact on our health and happiness. Join me and Brenda Adams, a health and fitness expert, to learn about simple ways to incorporate healthy eating and activity into your daily living.
Why Brenda? (In her own words…)
Well, first, there’s what most people tend to look at: my formal education. I earned a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology from Simon Fraser University, which means I spent four (okay, maybe six) years studying the human body and how it functions. I’m also a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (a life coach). And finally, I’m in the process of completing my master’s degree in adult education.
So my knowledge about the human body, combined with the tools I’ve acquired as a life coach, and my understanding of how adults learn best are the reasons why I am the one to do this work. From the experience side of things, I’ve been a fitness professional for over 18 years. In that time I’ve had the opportunity to work for provincial fitness organizations and to run one of the largest fitness centers in Canada. I’ve also watched many fitness programs come and go. It seems that the flashy, get-fit-quick programs and the get-fit-in-only-five-minutes-a-day gimmicks are what sell. But that doesn’t mean they work. It pains me to see people wrongly led to believe that living a healthy lifestyle is difficult, expensive and downright unattainable. Enough with the gimmicks, let’s make healthy habits that stick.
