Filling in the wellbeing blanks with Tim founder of ProSport Health & Fitness
We are all busy and are trying hard to fulfill big dreams and goals, manage our long to do lists and have a social life! The art of doing this without sacrificing our most important assets, our bodies and our health, is the challenge we are all faced with day to day. All of us, no matter who we are, have to keep working at it and can learn from each other – so each Wednesday we will chat to a passionate bright spark to hear about what they are up to and fill in their wellbeing blanks!
Today we are filling in the blanks with Tim Hazell, the founder of ProSport Health & Fitness. ProSport offers a range of different fitness services which also includes trips to Kokoda, Everest Base Camp, New York marathon & more awesome fitness holidays.
Let’s hear what Tim has to say:
To Tim to be well means: to have a healthy body & mind which gives you the energy and ability to get the most out of each day.
Exercising regularly and being positive comes pretty naturally to me. I love exercising, if I don’t I tend to get pretty crabby so exercise is always on my list.
Saying no and not over committing is my weakness. I need to learn to say NO. Lots of social functions and over committed diary is all good, as long as its not affecting me or my work – I don’t mind it.
Eating home cooking as much as possible and sleeping more puts a smile on my face. My girlfriend is an awesome cook & I’m a home body so if I’m staying in & eating at home – I’m pretty happy.
I usually sleep 6 hours per night. I’d love to sleep 8 hours per night.
Something I’ve found that really helps when it comes to my health, fitness and wellbeing is trying to cook at home as much as possible. Also taking my snacks & lunches to work really helps me.
Something I’ve learnt over the years when it comes to health, fitness and wellbeing is having a weekly training routine sorted (one that I enjoy), a fitness goal set (either a marathon or losing a few kgs – something) , good people around pre & post sessions (training with people is great) & to always recover (ice baths, sleep, good food & days off).
The advice I would give to someone half my age when it comes to looking after their body is educate yourself! Speak to some professionals about how to train, eat & recover. The gun ho approach will catch you so learn how to train the right way early & you will thank me when your older.
The problem with being too obsessive and trying to be a perfectionist when it comes to your health and wellbeing is it’s really stressful on not only the body but the mind as well. You’ll miss out on too much fun if you’re freaking out about how healthy everything is. Just relax, enjoy yourself and listen to your body.
If my body stopped working my ability to do my work would be slow & not great.
If my body could talk right now the loudest thing that it would say / ask for is more down time please. More time with family & friends.
