Fitness gadgets are disconnecting you from your body

The more we follow gadgets for health the less we are in touch with our body. Gadgets, like step trackers, food calculators, meal plans, will all treat you like a robot. 

Sure, the recommendation to move daily is 10,000 steps, but does that take into account your energy, stress load, if you are unwell, your mobility or daily lifestyle? 
Your macro calculator may say to eat X amount of protein daily, but are you digesting and assimilating and eliminating it well? You can put the food in but is your body using it properly? All the macro and calorie counting is useless and possibly even making you more sick or more over-fed and under-nourished. Definitely less connected to your body. 
Food plans, don’t even get me started. Basically if I wanted to make a lot of money with little regard to actually helping people, I’d write a food plan. A food plan does not know your body, personal goals, lifestyle, stress load, digestive health, liver function, bowel movements and so on. Nor does it know your ancestral type. How much protein, carbs or fat YOUR body needs, which will change on any given day depending on your movements. 
If you can buy a food plan without anybody asking you questions about the above body responses, RUN! 
Yes, if needed to, I will tap into a step tracker, even a macro tracker if a client really doesn’t have an idea what macronutrients are or how much movement is enough movement. They’re a TOOL to be used for a short period in some cases, not to live your life by. 
The longer you spend using these tools and plans, the less in touch you become with your body and it’s needs. 
Our body is always giving us signs of what it needs. Signs like a little pain in the back or neck to tell us to eat more protein or to drink more water, stretch more or to train differently. A sign of jumpy mind or ADHD behavior, not sleeping well or waking up rested, or even our mood being flat and lethargic. These are all signs of our nutrition needs not being met. 
Our food is not only medicine but a gateway into fuelling our body to be able to live, create, move, inspire, to be happy and to live out our dreams and desires. 
Without a healthy body you will struggle to have a healthy mindset. The gateway to that healthy mindset is nourishment and movement, the right type for YOU.

Complimentary Holistic Health Consult

If you’re interested in learning more about what we do, we suggest arranging a time to pop into the studio for a chat with one of us to go over your current health and challenges and we will also run you through our Holistic Health Consult. 
The health consult is designed to give you clarity over where your health currently is, and where you would like it to be. It then bridges that gap and shows you the best way for you to move forward with a clear path mapped out. 
We find this is the best way for you to understand what we do, as we work differently to most gyms with a much more holistic approach to health and fitness. 
If you would like to arrange a time to pop in to see the space and to book a Holistic Health consult, then please contact us here and we will be in touch with some available times.’
