Type: Lecture | Duration: 90' | Audience: general public

The majority of us are well aware of the need to exercise more. In the past 4 years 'Get more exercise' has constantly been at the top 3 New Year's resolutions worldwide. How come then only a small percentage of people are currently meeting the minimum required levels of physical activity? As a personal trainer with more than 10 years of experience I've gained a good level of expertise on coaching my clients to their goals. In this lecture I will discuss the top 7 obstacles that come in the way to a more active lifestyle and help the participants to overcome these barriers. The lecture itself is 60', followed by 30' Q+A from the public.


Option: can be combined with "Food for thougths"


Type: Lecture | Duration: 90' | Audience: general public

More and more employers are investing in the weelbeing on the work place. When we think about the factors that contribute to workplace performance, we rarely give much consideration to food. For those of us battling to stay on top of emails, meetings, and deadlines, food is simply fuel. But as it turns out, this analogy is misleading. The foods we eat affect us more than we realize. In this entertaining session I will help the audience tackle the everyday struggles with making healthy and practical nutrition choices at work. The lecture itself is 60', followed by 30' Q+A from the public.


Option: can be combined with "What's your excuse?"


Type: Workshop | Duration: 90' | Audience: sport professionals / athletes / coaches
