If you are embarking on a new lifestyle, health and weight loss journey it is absolutely essential to your success that you surround yourself with the support and expertise that you need to get you where you want to go. There is so much information available today at the click of a button it frightens me! It frightens me because unless you are a specialist in this area it is very difficult for you to distinguish between the correct information that is helpful to you, and the dangerous information that is harmful to you but, because it is said with such confidence it has to be true!
Over the past 6 True Transformation programmes we have run in our True Fitness studio I have been absolutely shocked to my core at some of the ‘advice’ that the participants have received at different points in their lives on different programmes. I have finally reached the point where despite my crazy schedule (full time lecturer in exercise physiology and health, full time researcher in weight loss and health, partner in True Fitness) I have decided that I am going to blog about health, fitness and weight loss from now on, so that I can share my knowledge (scientifically proven) and experience with you and give you true advice to help you reach your health, fitness and weight loss goals.
I have devoted my life to health and wellness. I created True Transformation based on 15 years of scientific research and clinical experience, and I pride myself in delivering all of this in a simple, practical, effective lifestyle programme that can change your life. The core of this programme is health education and that’s what makes it so life changing. We strive to teach you everything you need to know about healthy living, so that you have the knowledge and skills you need to make good decisions. It’s only a start and there is so much more we would like to do, but it’s a great start. This is not a ‘quick fix’ diet programme (because they never work!), it is an actual lifestyle change for you and your family. We will have another True Transformation programme available in the coming week, fully funded by Laois Sports Partnership and the HSE for 15 participants, and we are very excited about it! Please keep an eye out for the poster and contact us if you are interested in taking part.
Yours in health,
Dr Diane Cooper
