Fit Can Happen Even Without The Gym

eing fit and healthy often ends up in the ‘should’ basket. We know we should eat better foods and get more exercise but life often gets in the way of making a regular commitment to gym or classes.

However, Redcliffe personal trainer, Tom Law, believes it is possible and provides some of the answers in his book ‘Tom’s Law: Fit Happens’ being launched this month.

This book encourages people to make incidental exercise a daily habit as opposed to finding an hour a day for gym work. It looks at our general inactivity and offers low cost and free suggestions “where we can rediscover everyday exercise from our parents and grandparents time”, Tom said.

“I give simple and easy to do options for people to follow, for example, always take the stairs instead of elevators or escalators – make it a habit.”

“Park your car at the shopping centre well away from the entrance. It’s less likely to be scratched and you get in some walking. Don’t take the car to the corner shop for milk or the paper, walk there. Do your body a favour and help save the environment by not driving.

“I really am passionate about health and wellness and hope this book in some small way changes the lives of people for the better.”

Since leaving the Australian Army in 1997, Tom has worked in and managed gyms, and taken groups from all walks of life for physical activities and adventures. Tom has been conducting group and personal training sessions at Suttons Beach for 10 years and loves living in Redcliffe.

“I hope ‘Tom’s Law: Fit Happens’ will inspire those who are not gym goers or bootcampers but want to improve their lifestyle by being fitter,” Tom said.

Come along and learn how to incorporate fitness into your daily life with lots of hints and tips from Tom Law.

The book launch is free to attend and morning tea will be provided. To RSVP search Facebook for Tom’s Law Book Launch.
