WHAT IS THE FIRST STEP SOMEONE CAN TAKE TO INCREASE THEIR ACTIVITY?

SIMON “THOR” DAMBORG

Thor604, Raincity Athletics, Powerhouse, Vancouver, Olympic VillageStart slow and simple!
Everyone is eager to jump into (or back into) extreme programs looking for dramatic results right off the bat – which not only increases the risk of injury, but also the chances that they end up quitting or dropping off again.

The hardest thing to do is remember to focus on the long term and build a basic healthy lifestyle where physical activity (of any kind) is a regular occurrence.

Once this base is developed you can begin to increase the intensity and complexity of the exercises and routines.

We treat every athlete at Raincity Athletics exactly like that… AS AN ATHLETE.

Whether you’re a professional or you just got off the couch for the first time your training program should follow the same basic principals of periodization and preparation before you get into the aggressive stuff.

I believe that building a strong base is best achieved through small lifestyle changes and a supportive community

…as these are the things that will guarantee longevity in health whether you’re aggressively training or not.

Simon is the Head Coach and Owner of Raincity Athletics. “Discovering a new level of health has changed my life, not only in how I look feel and perform, but how I feel about myself both inside and out. I want to help as many people as I can discover their ‘athlete within’ no matter what level that may be, which is why I love our slogan: Find Your Fit. Our bodies are nicer than any car, house, or pet we’ll ever own, and yet we constantly abuse them like we can buy another one if it breaks. I strongly believe if we can maximize our physical health and performance it will have a positive affect on our lives in more ways than anyone can imagine.”
