You’ll find me in my spare time playing or watching sport, enjoying good food and coffee, admiring every single last dog I see.
My philosophy to exercise physiology is treat the person, focus on a way to be active in a way that is enjoyable to the individual. You’re a lot more likely to do something you enjoy (and benefit from it).
The best piece of advice I’ve received is ‘take it one day at a time – tomorrow is a new day’.
