Gymchat 273 - 10 Tips for Achieving Balance in Your Life & Your Diet (Aeryon Ashlie)

Moving from where you are to where you want to be.


If you're fortunate enough to be on your own strength-training journey - and experience the incredible transformations, both physical and mental - that come with it; you're doubtless keen to help as many other people as possible to do it themselves. It really is a fantastic feeling.

Still, if you've ever been approached by someone who's keen to 'get in shape', you may be wondering just where they should begin. How to go from 'couch potato' to following a fitness lifestyle.

This week we'll be exploring this in detail; looking at the many things which help you move from where you are to where you want to be. Helping us tackle this is Fitness Competitor Aeryon Ashlie, and Personal Trainer (and Strength Athlete) Josh Hewett. Fantastic.


NB : We love hearing everyones' comments, questions and feedback in general. If there's a particular subject you'd like Aeryon and Josh to address, just swing by the event page for this Gymchat and leave a comment or jump in the Hangout and ask them directly.

And if you'd like to point your friends/colleagues to the discussion, just use the 'share' button at the top of that page. The more the merrier.
