“For over 40 years as a teacher and lecturer I have been prescribing and training at moderate to high intensity levels of exercise to increase fitness levels, improve health and wellbeing and promote weight loss. That is… until I was diagnosed with Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) with one of my coronary arteries that was 90% blocked requiring stenting. At the same time, I started to hear of well trained athletes suffering from heart related conditions, some even resulting in death.
I needed to know why this was happening to me given that I had always been very fit, a non-smoker with an excellent diet and had no risk factors. I spent many months researching information on coronary calcium scores, oxidative stress, free radical production, atrial fibrillation, premature ventricular contractions, turbulent arterial blood flow and many other potentially scary concepts that all fitness participants should be made aware of.
At my journey’s end I discovered a Tipping Point where too much exercise can cause potentially serious side effects, a Missing Link in health and fitness that needs to be recognised and promoted and that the fitness industry as we currently know it is not addressing the problems of global inactivity and obesity.”
Come along to this presentation and find out more about:
- The Exercise Tipping Point and the Missing Link of movement that will change the way you think of health and fitness forever
- The serious medical complications that are common to both the inactive couch potato group and the over exercising group
- How I used my vacuum cleaner to train to trek Everest Base Camp
