13 Feb Become Fit4Life with Leah!
If you’re looking for fitness inspiration and tips we’d love to introduce to Leah from Fit4Life Training Academy!
Leah originally started Fit4Life Training Academy back in December 2017. The idea came from her desire to reach out and help the community in her own way. “I wanted to take my personality and unique training styles and use them to guide others on their fitness journey,” she said. Leah has since been offering bootcamps, fitness classes, personal training and junior training while providing the community with a friendly, health-focused fitness centre.
The best part of Fit4Life Training Academy for Leah is the people, “we are like a family and the support that happens in the studio between the members and trainers is special,” she said. With an exceptionally welcoming and non-judgemental community, Fit4Life Training Academy is definitely a great source of motivation and encouragement when it comes to fitness.
Exercising is especially important for mental health, it releases chemicals in the body like endorphins and serotonin that can improve your mood and ability to cope with stress and other day-to-day challenges. Exercise can also help with social skills as in many cases it means you’re out in the world meeting people, which can help reduce feelings of loneliness and isolation while boosting your confidence!
“If you exercise regularly, it can reduce your stress and symptoms of mental health conditions like depression and anxiety. It can also improve sleep which is so important in many different ways,” Leah explained.
Leah’s top three tips for incorporating exercise into your daily routine are:
- Make it fun (if you’re enjoying something you’re more likely to want to do it)
- Write down your goals on paper or tell a friend (this may help you stick to it and make you more accountable)
- Start out with one or two smaller goals first. Don’t overwhelm yourself!
Leah reminds us that “the body is amazing, it will do whatever your mind tells it to. Train your mind, then your body.”
