    THIS is what is missing in your fitness program!

    As a personal trainer, fitness coach, body transformational coach, S&C coach or whatever title the professional gives him or herself, I can bet you they will often describe the human body/anatomy as a series of bones, muscles, joints and connective tissues working as a single homogenous unit. There could also be mention of the central and peripheral nervous systems and how they work with the rest of the anatomy to create function.

    However before all of this there is another system that in all my years in the fitness industry has led me to believe is far more important to optimal function.

    To function in an optimal fashion humans need to be true (as possible) to our roots, our evolutionary pathway. So many things are now a part of human culture that completely sabotage standard function nevermind optimal! Processed food, blue light and EMF’s, poor sleep patterns, increased stress from work including long periods sitting, poor diet choices, deadlines, relationships with co-workers and at home, relationship pressures, children issues, all of these and more add up to sabotaging our health and human function.

    We all want to be at our ideal weights, have increased all-round health and fitness and a maximised quality of lifestyle and we task fitness professionals with the role of helping us achieve these goals.

    So it really is imperative your coach/trainer knows more than just how to count to 10. Or be the reason why you actually make to the gym (because you know it will cost you a session if you cancel). Your go-to for all things fitness should actually know a little bit about this particular subject!

    The role of hormones. Our neuroendocrine system produces a plethora of different human chemicals that dictate our moods, sleep cycles, digestion, cognitive function and other things such as do we lose fat and put on muscle or vice-versa!

    From Wikipedia – “hormones are responsible for the regulation of many physiological processes and behavioral activities such as digestion, metabolism, respiration, sensory perception, sleep, excretion, lactation, stress induction, growth and development, movement, reproduction, and mood manipulation”.

    I hope you will agree that is a long list of highly important function, directly related to hormones.

    The actual creation of hormones starts at the food you eat and the liquids you drink. Too much of something (alcohol, as an example) and/or too little of something else (good quality water, as an example) and you will not produce high quality hormones.

    A lot of things that are very important to optimal human function start with food, interesting right?! The old adage, shit in=shit out or it’s something like that!

    I’m not saying don’t eat fast food. Well, ok I am. But I know a lot of you only eat it because your child wants to go there, right (and you let him/her)? Life lessons eh? Am I preaching, trying not to but “come on man”!

    It’s like drinking soda/soft drinks – really bad. It’s like smoking, like watching TV for 8 hours a day or going to gym and only running on the treadmill.

    Have I told you how bad the treadmill is for your running gait, posture and general movement patterns? Not good, basically. Bad choice the treadmill for a number of reasons.

    Fast food and other foods in excessive amounts, alcohol, nicotine, inhalation of smoke, physical inactivity, too much blue screen, too much EMF exposure and more can all contribute to poor hormone quality production.

    The result of this is poor function. And poor function leads to illness and ultimately disease.

    Positively influencing hormonal production and quality is a great starting point for decision-making around food choices, exercise regimes, sleeping/resting habits and our “Brain Game”.
