A lot of people set unrealistic goals.
They ask what their goals should be and how long should it take. I don’t care about any of that. It’s gonna take what it takes.
While it sounds vague in light of the promises of other fitness fads, it’s actually the best advice an honest coach will give you. Fitness is a life-long journey that isn’t working if you only do it seasonally.
Getting in shape or reaching ‘your goal’ is easier than you think, but takes longer than you think. That’s where many people go wrong because we’re told the fastest way to success is to increase the intensity as much as possible…
Yet, suffering in a class run off a TV or pounding yourself at the gym is also a sign that you’re doing things your body hasn’t been prepared for. Don’t get me wrong I love a high-intensity workout, it’s one of our core training foundations; LIFT, SPRINT, & PLAY
The coaches at Live Well offer something that’s meant to carry you for decades. We aim to ‘make getting old look easy’.
It’s sustainable and customisable. Because we know it’s natural to overestimate what we can do in a few months and underestimate what we can do in a few years, we do our best to place you at the right starting point and pace you accordingly.
Quit, Pivot or Thrive?
When things aren’t working out, you can easily blame or look for sympathy from others. Your emotions then send you on a rollercoaster which can translate to wrong decisions.
It would be best to learn how to navigate through the rollercoaster ride so you make the right decisions. This will involve shifting your mindset. Only then will you thrive.
Last year during the nationwide lockdown, one of our members went through this exact process. It resulted in a dramatic transformation. She shifted her mindset and thrived. You can watch Penny’s amazing story below.
I am sure it will empower you during these frustrating times.
Stay committed, healthy and have fun!
Live Well would like to welcome Georgina to the team!

Why Balance is essential for your Exercise Routine
Like anything you work towards in life, be it work related or health related, results often take time. It doesn’t happen overnight.
Thinking specifically about exercise and health, whilst some lose weight quicker than others, there’s one common trend that must be taken into consideration along the way. During the process and during the at times, “grind”.
What I’m referring to is the balance we adopt. Everyone’s lives are different. Whilst some are heavily involved socially and/or with family, or have a time-demanding hobby, others may be more available with time outside of work. But if we focus too heavily on one thing – be it our time in the gym, or time away from it – the balance will affect our different states of health.
We all aim to be physically healthy, but what’s often neglected is our mental health.
Repetitively doing the same thing can often cause resentment. So if we relate that to fitness, ask yourself a few simple questions:
When was the last time you updated your workout program?
When was the last time you tried a new exercise you’d never done before?
When was the last time you asked someone for advice?
