Sue’s Focus On The Power of Now Completely Changed Her Health!

How I changed my life around.

It took a long time for me to finally understand how important it is to keep fit and look the best you can.

How did I do it? Well I finally said enough is enough. I was sick of constantly saying ‘I’m gonna do it’. Finally I broke through the barrier of self doubt, and half-hearted attempts at making a change. It wasn’t easy, but now I fully understand that optimal health is a whole package deal. I now have more insight into how much a role my thoughts and emotions played in my ability to change my body and health.

First, the tool you need is your mind. Give yourself a goal and do it only when you are prepared to give it one hundred percent. Once you have finally said enough is enough, there will be no stopping you. I know because I have been on that yo-yo ride for a long time.

At 62, I am feeling great. Loving the exercise, training, and love all the positive feedback from other people about how great I look. The power of positive thinking comes to mind also knowing that I can do this and loving every moment of it. The feedback alone is worth the journey and hard work you put into it. When everyone notices and starts to comment on how well you look and you know you do, that’s when you feel like you will never look back again. I have so much energy, my skin looks healthy, I have lost body fat and I feel so much stronger. A positive thought about all of this is that I am much happier. Most of my mind baggage is gone, I’m reading and understanding a lot more about the body and the benefits of a healthier lifestyle. Drinking for a long time was my downfall. Now that’s all under control I can focus on the more important things, such as getting healthy.

In a nut shell its all about how bad do you want it. It is a life time change, but YOU can do it and it is surprising how easy it becomes once you start seeing the results and also when other people notice it as well. I just love it all.

Get great coaches / trainers! No better ones than Brad and Bex! They are the whole package deal to making the first steps to looking good, and feeling good about yourself. I can’t say enough about the holistic CHEK Practitioner approach for training and overall health. It’s an absolute must.

So good luck on your journey. One you will surely love as I do! Also the quote that I look at everyday which I find to be true. When you think you’re going to falter, think positive, don’t give up and remember:

“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”

*The book Sue credits as the catalyst in changing her mindset is The Power of Now, by Eckhart Tolle, a book that has changed millions of lives.

Brad’s knowledge, dedication and support are truly inspirational.

The pain I was experiencing in my neck and knees is nearly gone and my posture has improved significantly. I recently completed my first Olympic length triathlon and managed to get through an entire rowing season injury free.
