2021 03 Talking finding your fit with Alexa
in this eposide we chat with one of my onine PT clients about finding her fit and how starting to exercise has changed her life. here is her blurb: Yesterday I did 50 squats using my Nordic sticks and a 4 kilo medicine ball; I also did my band training standing up rather than using my Pilates ball!  A year ago I could barely stand for more than five minutes without my arthritis screaming for me to sit down…what a difference a year makes! Over the years my life was about work whether working in development or, later, teaching at an international school. I was the cliché, “all work and no play.” However, as I approached retirement, I knew changes had to be made. I felt limited in what I could do with my grandchildren and my own children planned vacations around my liabilities. No more! The lockdown provided me with an opportunity to reflect on my circumstances and take control! Since May, 2020, I have been doing functional training. I love that I have a monthly one on one virtual session and the rest of the time I can plan my training into what I want to do that day.  I have a digital diary to track my progress and my thoughts about what I was/am doing!  Now, I go for walks and have named all the crazy balls I use for training….it is very personal. All the things I have done in my life have led me to this  point in time. It’s been a rough and tough journey, but how fantastic is it that, at 71, I am ready to take on new adventures! if you would like to know more about online training send me an email: we have a Patreon!! if you would like to support us by becoming a goos to go HERO follow the link

S1 Ep:9 - talking with Meliors Simms the holistic tooth fairy
Bio Meliors Simms developed the Holistic Tooth Fairy Way to heal teeth and gums naturally based on her own experiences as well as coaching hundreds of people all over the world. After a diverse career (from research to counselling to arts) and a lifetime of terrible teeth, she stumbled on a nutritional approach which prevented what would have been her 7th root canal. That inspired years of independent research and experimentation, eventually resulting in her uniquely holistic approach to oral health. She helps people all over the world and from all walks of life to heal their teeth and gums with bespoke strategies for nutrition, hygiene and jaw tension while addressing the influences of the environment, systemic oppression and spirituality on oral health. we spoke about this book: Cure Tooth Decay - Ramiel Nagel if you want to get in contact with us at Good to go - send me an email
