14th January 2018
As the new year kicks off, many of us make resolutions to be healthier whether it is giving up smoking, training for a marathon, or giving up our sugar habit. There is a huge pressure to be the best versions of ourselves and often we jump in feet first, all guns blazing, in a bid to get the best results in the fastest time possible. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to improve your health and well-being, but life is a marathon – not a sprint, and if you really want to make sustainable changes to your life you need to think in the long-term, and not the short.
So in order to help you achieve your health and well being goals, without burning out, restricting yourself, or hurting yourself, join us and the incredible Hazel Wallace AKA The Food Medic for a signature Trooper UN1T workout co-hosted by Hazel, brunch provided by Spoon cereals, a panel discussion, Q&A with the experts, and of course, a goodie bag for you to go home with, including items from all of Hazel’s favourite brands including Reebok, Form Nutrition, Spoon Cereals, Linwoods and Pip&Nut.
To make sure you can achieve the changes you desire this year in a sustainable way, we have rounded up the best in the business to help you out:
Amy is the digital editor of Women’s Health UK, a Level 3 personal trainer, ambassador for Lululemon’s European flagship store, and last year won Best Newcomer at the Wellness Awards and was shortlisted for Content Leader of The Year at Digital PPAs. She lives and breathes the business of wellness. Eat, sweat, social, repeat is her daily grind.
She began her digital career 8 years ago and as one of the first to embrace digital she has always been ahead of the curve. Over the years she has worked with many of the world’s leading health experts, launched the first Women’s Health 12-week workout programme and tried more healthy food trends than Paltrow and Kerr combined.
Amy is a true believer that a balanced mindset is key to enjoying the healthy life – “sometimes that’s yoga, and others it’s vodka tonics in the sunshine. Such is life”.
Sam Pepys MSc, ASCC, CSCS – is a strength and conditioning coach and personal trainer.
Sam is a true believer that exercise is something that should be accessible to all, but more importantly should be fun. A happier and more fulfilled life is something he has and is always striving to attain thanks to the relationship he has built with his body through leading an active and healthy lifestyle. Which is part of the reason he chose a career that allows him to inspire others to do so.
Dr Hazel Wallace:
Dr. Hazel Wallace is the founder and writer for her blog The Food Medic. She is a practicing medical doctor, with a huge passion for nutrition and lifestyle medicine, and a qualified personal trainer.
She started her blog whilst at university to help educate and inspire herself to become healthier and fitter, but soon realised that there was a lot more value in what she was doing than simply for herself and that she had the potential to improve the health of many people, both inside and outside of the hospital. She uses her blog and social media platforms to share easy to follow recipes and cooking tips, workouts, informative articles, and advice that is evidence-based but digestible. She has recently just released her first book The Food Medic in May 2017 which became a Sunday Times bestseller and she is now a monthly online columnist for Women’s Health as their resident junior doctor.
