Glorified Fitness Incorporated (GFI) offers holistic fitness to help you Reach the Unreachable in your fitness goals, but what does that mean? Holistic Fitness can mean different things to different people, so today, we want to tell you what it means at GFI and what it means in relation to you being able to Reach the Unreachable.
Before we explain the GFI approach to holistic fitness, I want to share what others are saying about it.
We went as far as Australia for answers. A blog by Technical and Further Education based in New South Wales (TAFE NSW) defines holistic fitness as “a breed of training which addresses the whole person, not just their physical training. The aim is to work towards wellness, achieving physical fitness through a combination of mental and physical avenues.” TAFE NSW is the leading provider of vocational education and training in Australia.
We also went to Hong Kong for answers. In a blog by Fitness First, holistic fitness is defined as “a direct approach to maintaining mental, spiritual and physical fitness, incorporating nutrition and mindfulness to achieve overall sense of wellbeing.” Fitness First is a chain of fitness centers in Hong Kong.
In the USA, holistic fitness has taken on many names. Other terms used interchangeably with holistic fitness include holistic health, holistic wellness, or holistic exercise, and they typically focus on the mind in addition to the body.
Riverside Village Clinic in Nashville, TN describes holistic health and wellness as “the practice of treating the whole mind, body, and spirit” from a medical perspective. The Better Up blog mentions that “While experts debate which areas should be included in holistic wellness, most agree that it encompasses mental, emotional, and physical health.” In our own back yard, Columbus Underground reported on the new Be Well Holistic Fitness studio in Bexley, Ohio where they offer group fitness classes, personal training, and health coaching.
The approach in Hong Kong is more aligned with what GFI is doing. We offer holistic fitness for the body, mind, and spirit. We believe that before you can achieve success in anything you do, you must have motivation and encouragement. We want to inspire people to Reach the Unreachable in whatever they endeavor to accomplish. We strive to lift your spirits. If you are feeling disappointed, discouraged, unmotivated, negative thoughts, depression, defeat, or any other feelings that cause to not even want to get out of bed in the morning, you will not be able to focus on your potential. We all have potential because we were all created for a purpose.
So, we at GFI want to lift your spirits. We want to lift you out of your depression, discouragement, and negative thoughts with the sights and sounds of inspiration motivation, and encouragement.
Once we get your spirits lifted to where you WANT to make a change we work on your mental fitness. We know that transformation begins with a mindset change because whatever you THINK you can do will be your limitation. We want to change the way you think about yourself and your situation so you realize that you can Reach the Unreachable in your fitness goals and life goals.
Then comes the easy part. We help you focus on your physical fitness. I’m not saying the process is easy, but I’m saying that once you lift your spirits and transform your mind, it will be easier for you to get physically fit. By then, you have the motivation to put in the work. You have the tools you need to get the body you want. Of course, nutrition is a key part of the physical fitness transformation. Many people struggle with changing their diet, but once you have overcome with a better attitude, better motivation, and a better thought process, you will be better equipped to continue the process and make the necessary nutrition changes to reach your physical fitness goals.
So, that is what holistic fitness means at GFI. Fitness for the body, mind, and spirit. We are turning typical fitness into Glorified fitness by including equipment in our fitness center for cardio and strength, tools and activities in our learning center for sharpening the mind of children and adults aged 5 and up, and inspirational, motivational, and encouraging messages to keep your spirits lifted and transform your thoughts.
