With science and technology changing everything from the tiniest bit to the largest mountain, the world of fitness and health has also drastically changed by new scientific advances and technologies. In these changing times, it can be tough to find out what works and what doesn’t. That is why Josie Medema studies and helps people with kinesiology and nutrition at the University of Utah.
Josie is determined to help people achieve their specific goals for their health and fitness. She does this by believing in a holistic approach to being healthy. She insists on being healthy and fit from the inside and outside. She is a personal trainer, and she focuses on the specific goals of her clients and helps them by making sure they implement the changes to their lifestyles.
She uses all these tactics on herself, too, becoming a bodybuilder. She believes that a holistic approach will make her clients’ lives better and easier to maintain. She focuses on what her clients consume along with their movements. She specializes in creating personalized routines for her clients which go along with their daily needs and help them implement them.
Her routines involve food consumption, exercise, and lifestyle changes. She promotes intermittent fasting as the best way to stay focused throughout the day. She also exercises every day in the morning. Just after waking up, she straight away goes for a run or a swim to get her body working. She also encourages exposure to natural light for better focus and to start your physiological/ endocrinological mechanisms for the day.
All these are just a few of the things Josie does and suggests to her clients, along with supplements like caffeine – in moderation, of course- ashwagandha, alpha-gpc, etc. she maintains that if we look at our lifestyle and change little things which harm us and replace them with good healthy habits, attaining health goals is not very hard or even a difficult feat.
Anyone can be healthy if they change the way they see things, most people go on strict diets and workout regimes, but that doesn’t always help. Being healthy isn’t about only eating well and working out. Permanent lifestyle changes must be attributed to a person’s health and well-being.
Josie also discourages using screens 30 minutes before sleeping to maintain her sleep quality so she can wake up the next day with more focus and strength. She also suggests this to her clients because “early to be, early to rise, makes the body healthy and wise.”
It is smart to go with the holistic approach to your health and fitness since it rounds up your whole lifestyle. Josie is adamant about helping as many people as possible to fix their lifestyles and reach their health and fitness goals. She is a perfect example of what a holistic approach to health and fitness does for someone.
