The Beauty Behind Perfection is Imperfection

Often times people hear the word “exercise” and they conger up images of being at a gym with a personal trainer barking orders and intimidation tactics, or hot young thin bodies in a spin class seeming to win an imaginary race that you have no clue what’s going on. At TD Wellness we believe movement is fitness not long hours at the gym sweating until complete exhaustion. We believe that small steps to activity go a lot longer, and in fact the science backs us up. Therefore, we work with clients on finding a simple but challenging activity that can become a part of a person’s life, no matter what. Make an appointment today so we can offer a variety of fitness assessments and programs that will meet peoples your needs and wants. For example…

  • Body composition assessments
  • Body composition assessment analysis
  • Fitness testing and assessments
  • Fitness goals and training – cardio and strength training
  • Group fitness programs – cardio and strength training
  • and more…

We find that the single biggest challenge to activity is inconsistency. When people go through periods of intense activity, coupled with stretches or gaps in any activity, it contributes to inconsistencies with their health. This is a commonplace experience for people who have yet to find their sweet spot with mindfulness and attunement to their minds and body. Well, in real life, lasting health requires consistency, and most importantly it requires flexibility. Many doctors will tell you that the most effective health program is the one you can maintain. David and the TD Wellness team can help guide you through the learning curve of finding out what kind, how much, and how long of activity is healthy for your body, while still fitting into your lifestyle. Finding a healthy balance requires ditching the all­-or-­nothing approach and starting to find structure without rigidity. Make and appointment today!

The Courage to Change Your Perspective

David and his TD Wellness team know that learning to maintain healthy habits includes some cognitive restructuring and greater awareness. That means that he can help you figure out which of your feelings and actions around activity and exercise are irrational or based on misinformation, and help you restructure that mentality into logical ways of thinking about exercise. Have you ever heard of neuroplasticity? This may sound like a complicated term and the science behind the way it works definitely is. Neuroplasticity means that your brain is capable of developing new methods (new neural pathways or psychological or emotional flexibility) of believing and thinking. This means you can develop new habits and new positive reactions to the choices in your life.

It’s All About Conscious Decisions

If all this is sounding like something you could commit to trying, we’d like to work with you to get started on challenging yet achievable forms of movement and activity, and that can mean walking, joining a gym, or dance classes.

Here at TD Wellness, we know from experience that people struggle with consistent activity are capable of changing their thinking and their habits. In part, it takes paying attention to the three C’s to healthy living; consistency, challenge, and consciousness. Keep making conscious decisions over and over. Challenging yourself beyond your fears to change a little, and consistently check in with yourself and your body. Why are you making an effort to be healthier? Why will it be worth it? Reminding yourself of the ‘why’ can make all the difference. Make an appointment and let David and his team build a healthy and consistent activity plan.
