Social Health

April 12, 2014

Rawfit Personal training Social Health

Being aware of your surroundings at all levels is what I call “social health”.

In my opinion it is actually more important to work as a community than simply looking after yourself.

Unfortunately most people do the reverse, saying : “I need to look out for myself”….then the whole problem starts…

When you just look out for yourself and don’t even know your neighbour’s name you are not fully healthy.

Social health is about supporting each other, it is about looking after the environment, it is about recycling, it is about seeing things as a whole.

I am very fortunate to have lived in several countries and I have experienced how different cultures behave in terms of social health.

I think that the first indication of a culture that is healthy is EYE CONTACT.

Eye contact is when you approach another being and you recognise yourself in the other. It an exchange of eye to eye, a recognition that you are open to the other.

So I would highly recommend that you practice this first principle of social health, look at others in the eye, smile, speak !

The second aspect of social health is listening. Listening to another, it could be a colleague, it could be a bird, listening is powerful.

The third aspect is asking. Ask a stranger how is his life going. Ask your neighbour how is his day going. Ask, ask, ask !

The fourth and last aspect of social health is paying forward. Make a selfless contribution to the community. It can be giving someone a hand . It can be a smile, it can be 2 hours of your time in a nursing home, it can be laughing out loud !

Now you see how simple it is ! Let’s move and change each other.

Get your green juice, open your front door and be socially healthy !

The Quest For Good Health

The Quest For Good Health - Rawfit Sydney Australia

The quest for health is something that I am passionate about and that is my life journey.

I have been searching, researching, testing and retesting so many things over the last 30 years….

And I would like to share with you some of my discoveries.

The first thing that I think is paramount is that all food should be consumed in its raw state.

Secondly all food needs to be from vegetable origin. The times of saying that a vegan is a hippy are over. There is clinical paper after clinical paper providing the results of a plant based diet. A vegan diet should be the first choice always.

Third, everything that comes in contact with your body needs to be organic, pure, unprocessed. We are not lab rats, we are not placebo trials, we have control of our health.

Fourth is cleanliness. We should only drink pure water, breathe pure air and wash our fruit and vegetables really well to avoid getting parasites. Parasites can really undermine your health. In my book The Rawfit Diet I go into more detail about how to do a regular parasite cleanse.

Fifth is juicing ! Juicing should be part of everyone’s diets.

Sixth is information. Read, inform yourself, do not let companies control your life like they control their profits. Stand up from the crowd, and take control. Read labels, say no, protest, write about it, tell everyone that you know about your discoveries. Let’s grow together !

Fermented Foods And Beauty : Glowing Skin And Hair

February 28, 2014

Fermented Food Rawfit Personal Training Sydney Australia

Fermented foods are a fundamental pillar of hair and skin beauty.

I know it sounds strange. The first time that I heard that I also found it strange, but….if you analyse the body as an interconnected machine , you will see that we are mini universe .

And when I say mini universe, I mean it. We hold millions of cells, tiny structures, good bacteria and bad bacteria.

And this huge colony of good bacteria that populates our skin and digestive system is very important.

People call it good flora, gut flora, I call them my assistants.

I don’t like the term “bacteria”. Bacteria sounds like bad stuff and when you mix it with the term “fermented foods” it doesn’t paint a nice picture. But if you see them as part of our mini universe and as our assistants, the picture looks much better.

So those assistants do many jobs. They break down old cells, they digest our food making the food easier to be absorbed into our cells and in this amazing process they create enzymes, that are the beautifying agent for our skin and all body tissues. They will literally make you glow from inside out.

Those assistants are also like soldiers: they fight against bad nasties, they also help you to detoxify your body.

And like anything in science there is an unknown aspect to it. We don’t fully understand the whole process, and that’s ok.

I personally add fermented foods into all my meals, I am a big fan of Noni juice, Kombucha, Coconut Water Kefir and Vegan fermented cheeses.

There are many more fermented foods out there, you basically can ferment anything. The fermentation process help you to extend some foods’ shelf life. And that’s how people have been using them for thousands of years before the invention of fridges.

I don’t recommend fermented foods with sodium like sauerkraut and kimchi to any of my clients. The effect of too much sodium is not good.

I explain more about this effect in my book The Rawfit Diet.

The Benefits Of Outdoor Training

February 14, 2014

The Benefits Of Outdoor Training Rawfit Personal Training Sydney Australia

I have been hearing a lot of buzz around the Vitamin D issue.

Basically you need to be exposed to daylight to get your daily dose of Vitamin D.

There is no magical pill. The problem is to avoid being exposed to the sun between 11am and 3pm to avoid the negative effects of UVA and UVB.

And let me tell you that exercising outdoors is the magical pill you’ve been looking for.

I can understand someone in Russia exercising in a gym due to the cold …but in Australia that should be considered a crime!

When I am running outdoors and pass a gym window and see people running on a treadmill, it’s like watching a millionaire saying that he is poor.

It makes no sense to use treadmills in Australia and I go further…it makes no sense to use any gym equipment indoors .

All Australians would be much happier if they had more contact with nature.

When you exercise outdoors you begin to appreciate small things, like the cleaniness of your beach, the pure ocean wind, the sound of the birds.

Seriously powerful stuff.

There is nothing more liberating than running outdoors or jumping into the ocean.

Now stick that image in your brain and compare it to someone running on a treadmill and showering in a packed bathroom .

Now lets stop this nonsense and lets go to our parks, beaches and national parks.

Let’s protect them all, let’s get some vitamin D and let’s be happy.

And don’t forget to jump into the ocean after your run !

Supermodel Body Exercises

February 6, 2014

Supermodel Body Exercises Rawfit Personal Training Sydney Australia

SUPERMODEL SUMMER LEGS

The mantra for Supermodel Summer legs is training hard and eating well. I highly recommend you read my books The Rawfit Diet and the Rawfit Diet Cookbook, available on Itunes, Amazon and Kobo on line stores. The diet needs to be perfect otherwise you won’t achieve such a good result.

Let’s explore the issue of training a bit. When I say training I mean high repetition, no weights workouts. All exercises need to performed in the following sequence with no breaks . You can do the following sequence every second day alternating it with a 30 minute run .

1) Leg and bum toner

For the first exercise I need you to lay down sideways on the floor and slowly lift your leg up and down for 5 minutes. Repeat the same for the other leg :

2) Model Plie
Exercise number 2 is even more interesting…by now you must be experiencing some pain and burning sensation in your legs and bum and that is a good sign that things are working well. Now let’s do some ballet. Standing up with your feet pointing out in opposite directions, you will do the old plie making sure you fully extend your legs up when coming up. Think about a squat with your feet pointing to opposite sides. Please repeat it for 6 minutes.

3) Invisible Spin Class
Now let’s do what I call the invisible spin class. Let me tell you it is hard ! Get ready ! Laying down on your back move your feet and legs like you are riding a bike in the air . Do it for 3 minutes non-stop ! Be strong !

4) Star Jumps
Now let’s get back to a very old exercise that has been overlooked throughout the years, star jumps. Please do it for 5 minutes

5) Model Frogs
And last but not least , the frog jumps. OMG, this will hurt now. Squat the lowest that you can then jump forwards and repeat it non-stop as fast as you can. Do it for 1 minute. You will see results in one week !!!

SUPERMODEL SUMMER ARMS

The mantra for Supermodel Summer arms is training hard and eating well. I highly recommend you read my books The Rawfit Diet and the Rawfit Diet Cookbook, available on Itunes, Amazon and Kobo on line stores. The diet needs to be perfect otherwise you won’t see such good results.

Let’s explore the issue of training a bit. When I say training I mean high repetition, no weights workouts. All exercises need to performed in the following sequence with no breaks . You can do the following sequence every second day.

1) Rawfit’s Signature arm rotation
The first exercise is one of those that starts off easy and by the end you will be cursing me. Standing up with your arms extended like the statute of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro, perform small circles forwards . Please repeat it for 3 minutes.

2) Rawfit’s Signature reverse arm rotation

Did you curse me? Ok ! So now let’s do the same exercise as before but now rotating your arms backwards..ok, curse me now. Please repeat it for 3 minutes.

2) Extended Plank
Now let’s do what I call the extended plank. Go into a push up position and hold it up. Please do it for 1 minute

4) Rawfit’s Floor Swim
Now laying down, and relaxing…just joking…laying down on your stomach with your arms extended and feet above the ground mimic that you are swimming. Do it for 5 minutes..it will hurt..get ready. Make sure you lift your arms as high as you can.

5) Rawfit’s Evil Wall push ups
And for last, the icing on the cake ! Standing up against a wall lean towards the wall and mimic that you are doing a push up .Do it for 5 minutes !
