Tony’s Tips

Fitness requires more than just physical values. “Living a healthy lifestyle demands that you take care of your body, and feed your mind with positivity. That’s achieved through knowledge of proper nutrition and fitness principles.”

Being healthy is all about good habits. “Drink eight glasses of water every day. Eat lots of protein (chicken breasts, egg whites and nuts) for a lean, powerful physique. Add fibre to your diet to regulate your bowels – I get it from cauliflower and banana. For snacks, swop junk food for nuts.”

Getting fit improves boosts your self-esteem. “Not only will you become better at whatever you do, you will also ensure that you make a good first impression in any social setting. You’ll become more confident, and you inspire others to become fitter and healthier.”
