What a fantastic week I had on Drive and I was fortunate enough to have 3 guests in! Not only that but I lost my fear of the mic (might regret that at some stage!) Fellow Personal Trainer Shulagh Jacobs joined me in the studio on Wednesday and it was wonderful to be able to ask questions that I thought listeners might be interested in as a health and fitness professional myself. Hopefully this resulted in digging deeper than standardised questions that someone with little health and fitness knowledge might not think to ask. Also, on occasion I have worked personally with Shulagh and observed what she does. Shulagh spoke about the importance of posture, balance and alignment of the body before training or exercise goals even commence. Shulagh is available at firstname.lastname@example.org
On Thurday Anne Tyler from EssexyLegs came in to speak about women’s tights and stockings, current fashion in leg wear, flattering styles and what she had sourced into her supplies. It was a good subject to raise with the increasingly chillier weather! Anne is really passionate about her product and producing a quality customer experience. To see her range visit www.essexylegs.co.uk or email your questions to Anne email@example.com A great thanks to Anne for coming into Phoenix.
Then on Friday I was completely spoilt by having the opportunity to throw my questions at Neil Meekings from NGM Body Work and Performance. Neil is a Body Work Therapist and practices Active Release Techniques and Sports and Remedial Massage Therapy. There is no one I would rather leave my body in the hands of and I have experienced a treatment with Neil myself. Neil and I had a very unique conversation covering latest scientific evidence, new approach methods to ways of looking at the human body and tissue, movement patterns, exercise and nutrition. Neil has his own practice here in Brentwood and he also works with elite athletes training for 2012. You can find neil at www.ngmbodyworkandperformance.com or contact 07967 674 036, 01277 229353 This is definately worth a listen:
On other occasions I spoke about the mixed evidence surrounding the grain Quinoa, the importance of rest, the benefits of squats, the role of water in the body and keeping exercise varied and unstructured at times. I shared information on flavonoids and its effect on blood pressure and what foods flavonoids are most abundant in. I discussed information regarding chronic inflammation as this is a contributor to a wide range of health problems including anxiety and depression. Fish fats are a useful natural and nutritious anti-inflammatory so we really can go some way in eating our troubles away! On Thursday I spoke about confidence and why it’s important to our evolution and self-development. I also shared my scrummy strawberry and chocolate protein bar recipe which can be viewed again at: https://www.mindhealthmovement.com/chocolate-berry-cold-pressed-protein-bars/ Finally, I also discussed local news and just life in general!
