Words of wisdom.

Today’s multi-tasking woman needs to be perfect at everything. She works hard, parties hard, and wants the best that life can bring. But nutritionists say health and fitness is fast deteriorating due to high consumption of sugar, junk food and alcohol, all of which are full of calories, combined with a sedentary lifestyle.

Looking good and feeling good is turning tougher with each new decade, so let’s take a look at how this is affecting today’s woman from youth through old age.

18-25Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, Thyroid imbalance, Menstrual disorders, acne, depression, low immunity, PMS
25-35Fertility issues, endometriosis, back pain, migraine, mood swings, poor sleep
35-45Weight gain, digestive disorders, weak back, blood pressure, headaches, hair fall
45-60Weight gain, high blood sugar, cholesterol, back issues, blood pressure, menopause
60 plusDiabetes, heart problems, knee disorders, hair loss, failing eyesight, memory loss, joint pains, bone density

During the first decade, friends mean everything and everyone out there is looking to have a good time, be seen at the right places, and be featured on social media daily. This can result in preoccupation with the wrong things that results in skipping meals, late nights and fad diets.

Then the second decade comes on, and women begin to feel the power of their independence. Careers are just starting out and the focus is on climbing up the ladder and multi-tasking between home and work.

The third decade finds women juggling home and work, kids and ageing parents. The pressures are mounting –emotionally, financially, physically and mentally. Stress levels are usually very high at this stage and this results in poor metabolism.

By the fourth decade, the past catches up. The excess fat has piled up over the years and this is also the time when kids leave home to study and women are faced with an empty home.

In the fifth decade, women tend to slow it down. Since they already know the health problems that they are up against, many tend to fall into depression and become lethargic, losing interest in the way they live.

This by far is the most challenging part of every woman’s life.

That’s why it’s best to start an AntiGravity fitness regime early. Give yourself one hour a day to exercise on a hammock. It will help you through the various problems that crop up in life like:

  • Stress
  • Premenstrual Syndrome
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
  • Hormonal disorders
  • Thyroid imbalance
  • Digestive problems
  • Headaches
  • Lower back disorders
  • Fertility problems
  • Sleep disorders
  • Hair fall
  • Wrinkles
  • Cholesterol
  • Joint mobility
  • Bone density
  • Weight gain
  • Failing eyesight

Physically, AntiGravity decompresses tight joints, strengthens your core, increases overall agility, helps you to hold challenging poses longer, and most of all introduces you to the joy of doing inversions.

Mentally, you get more confidence as your overall posture improves and you think faster on your feet as the brain gets a proper workout.

So don’t wait for the decades to pass you by. Start your practise at whatever stage of life you’re at –the younger the better– and see the difference!
