How can Fire Up Corporate Fitness help your health
As a nation, we Australians love our food. Whether it’s throwing a barbecue at the height of summer in the company of friends and family, or heading out to a fancy restaurant with your other half, eating is an implicit part of our culture. However, the nation’s love affair with food doesn’t mean that what we are putting in to our mouths on a daily basis is necessarily good for us – far from it, if recent figures are to be believed.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, Aussies are consuming fewer fruit and vegetables than we have ever done before. Indeed, it was revealed that Australians are chomping down on 30 per cent less fruit and vegetables than we were in the year 2000. Even more alarmingly, one in four adults never eat vegetables, and just seven per cent take in the standard five servings a day.
Why is this? In today’s modern, hectic world, many believe that it’s just too time-consuming to prepare good, nutritious meals – the stresses and strains of work, family commitments and all other elements of life come into the equation.
This is something that we at Fire Up Corporate Fitness would love to change. Our aims aren’t simply to promote a greater sense of fitness among Sydney’s workforce, but also to foster a culture of healthy lifestyle choices. This could mean eating to a higher standard, throwing that packet of cigarettes away, or simply become a little more active in your day-to-day life. Read on to find out how.
Firing up Australia’s health
The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare states that our nation has one of the highest life expectancies on the planet – some 82 years – but there is so much more that we could do for our collective health that could push this number even higher.
An unhealthy lifestyle, devoid of exercise and full of junk food, can markedly increase the risk of developing chronic illnesses and other aspects of your overall wellbeing. If you feel like you’re chained to your Sydney desk for seven to nine hours a day, let alone managing the other important factors of your life, how can you break out of your funk?
Well, we at Fire Up have developed a fine selection of corporate fitness classes in Sydney to give Australia’s workforce a little nudge in the right direction. You and your colleagues can work out in the beautiful atmosphere of the Domain or the iconic Hyde Park under the supervision of our professional trainers, who are well-versed in all aspects of exercise and fitness and can advise you on many aspects of your health needs.
Whether you’re a couch potato who has never even considered exercise before, but would like to get on the health train, or someone who has a good level of fitness and wants to learn a little more about overall health, Fire Up can help.
Fire Up: more than fitness
And that’s just it – Fire Up Corporate Fitness isn’t just about getting ripped abs or being able to run more than kilometre without getting a stitch, or out of breath. We want to give your whole life a greater sense of overall wellbeing, which can mean getting to grips with a good work/life balance, healthy eating advice, fitness tips and much more.
So, rather than putting a bacon roll into your mouth with one hand whilst typing with the other on your lunch break, eat a healthy lunch as provided by Fire Up Corporate Fitness at one of our classes. Drop us a line and book your business in for a session – you won’t regret it!
