Hierarchy of the human being

Hierarchy of the human being


Think about what your thinking about

We can last about 30 days with out food, 3 days without water, but only 3 minutes without air (before brain damage occurs).

What this tells me is that we need to focus on our breathing as number ONE, hydration comes next and then nutrition (all three are important).

Think of breathing along the lines of driving, nearly everyone can drive, but how many actually do it well?

Remember breathe…make time to take time.

Body Talk

Our bodies are really good at sending us messages, its just that we are not always that good at hearing them.

I know I have had to learn what each message means and act on it before it leads to pain. Our body responds to all kinds of stimuli, either from food, movement, hydration levels, work and inactivity. When the body is healthy the messages are good, when the body starts to feel uncomfortable about something it starts with sending gentle reminders, that if ignored can develop into our bodies eventually having to scream at us to pay attention.


Runs on the Board

So today’s message is listen to the subtle messages, learn what they mean and avoid your body yelling at you.

Basic Function

When training clients my base goal is that you will become physically able to do what you need to do. To be capable of looking after yourself in a life situation without the modern conveniences that we are so accustomed to.

Along the lines of surviving on an island with plenty of natural food around, with lots of materials for building shelter and the basic tools that you would need to build and hunt with. Another example would be living 100 years ago when nearly everything was done manually, such as washing, chopping wood and carting water. This is not saying that these scenarios are better than how we live now, what I am saying is that every era has some kind of effect on us as humans. Now more than ever before in history man kind is becoming inactive, and subsequently is losing his/her function. With that loss of function we also lose our ability to endure.

Is it possible that very few people are physically fit and strong enough to carry out some of the basic tasks of survival, that would be required of them when modern convenience is absent?

What we aim to achieve from our training and fitness therapy at Resolute Fitness Services, is to develop is the kind of physical functions that would allow you to swim or fish, lift materials or carry/drag food. To be able to climb even a small tree for fruit, to walk distance for water. I use these examples as a way of explaining basic function to my clients. Because to do the aforementioned activities would mean that you would need to use your body in pretty much every way that it can move.

To do these daily functions we need our body to function at its best, some sadly do not have this option. But for those of us that have been blessed with the gift of a healthy body, we can do our best to keep it that way. As long as your heart is beating and you are breathing and are of reasonable health, your body will respond and improve when given the right catalyst.

Our aim is to restore your body to neutral, so it can heal, from this foundation, then we can train to EXCEL.

Fountains are meant to Flow


Fountains are everywhere, in gardens and public places. But, have you seen a fountain that is not flowing? Suddenly they lose the all of their lustre of movement and energy and subsequently lose what would draw us to them.
Maybe we can look at ourselves as fountains for a minute? Are we flowing, or are we ubcomfortably still? Maybe we just are not quite moving like we would normally.
The biggest concern for us is when our inner fountain becomes stagnant, as we all know stagnant waters do not support anything healthy.
So give your fountain a check over, find and remove the obstacles and let it flow. Exercise is just one of the many components that helps keep our body fountain in balance. So maybe moving your body is a good place to start. If you are not sure where to start see your health professional or a qualified trainer and get out there.

Go with the flow.
