 360 Fitness

We believe fitness and weight loss or maintenance depend on a total approach. For example, just going to the gym won't necessarily cause you to lose a lot of weight (although it will help tone your muscles!). Similarly regular jogging or walking will help you lose weight, but it does not guarantee you will be healthy and never get sick. Lots of runners have had heart problems and cancer just like everyone else.


So what is the 360 approach to Women's Fitness?

Quite simply it is a balanced approach to fitness that includes the following:

  • Proper dieting for weight loss and weight maintenance,

  • Aerobic exercise like fitness walking, jogging or aerobics classes for heart and lung conditioning

  • Anaerobic exercise for muscle toning and overall strength

  • Meditation for the mind!

Of course each of the above has more benefits than we have listed here, and the individual web pages on this site will cover these in more detail. If you are thinking of joining a (women's') fitness program, make sure that at least the first three above are included. The mental aspect is important too, and you need to embrace the idea of the all-round approach to keeping fit.
