“A good archer is not known by his arrows but by his aim”

  To live a life with direction and purpose one has to set goals. It is not good enough to take a couple of steps which will one day ultimately lead to a goal, but every single step and decision you make will need to be a goal itself. Small goals & baby steps ultimately lead to long term achievements. As a health, nutrition, fitness and wellness coach I frequently get approached by various kinds of people with completely unique goals, seeking []

The unfortunate thing that we are confronted with in modern society is that yes, lifespan of the human being has increased and mainly due to modern []

Acceptance is the First Port of Call

  I often get inundated with requests on how to deal with illness or injury, It is something that every person will eventually have to face whether an athlete or not. Even the healthy get sick :-). One of the most noticeable things I always see, is that whether injured or ill, especially when it is an athlete they are living in complete denial.

“Ignoring your health will certainly bring bad news knocking at your door”

It’s quite amazing how often when chatting to people young and old, how many of them go about their lives day after day without sparing a second thought to their health. There is always something getting in the way of self-care whether it is work, or going out, there is always too much to do and wellness takes the back seat. I have often asked people when last did you go for a medical and most say “well I took out a []
