FRASER COAST FITNESS & HEALTH EXPO 2015


My speech & some images from the day:
In Queensland 65% of adults and 28% of children are overweight or obese which includes 50% of the Fraser Coast being overweight or obese.

Therefore being very passionate about fitness, fun & health I’ve organised today’s ‘Step into Spring’ FITNESS & HEALTH EXPO to raise awareness, promote prevention and help educate about Fitness & Health on the Fraser Coast! Please note: Audience participation is compulsory!

I have written and published a ‘4 Week Program’ which is a Mind, Meal & Exercise Plan that teaches people the tools and skills to apply for a long term happy healthy lifestyle, which will is available at the Zumba stall as I hope to revolutionise the Fraser Coast! I find the Fraser Coast obesity epidemic very serious and am working towards creating a massive community lifestyle overhaul campaign with the help of other like minded professionals!

This event would not be possible without the Awesome support of Karen Chatfield the site manager and the Hervey Bay Council for the Arts​ who generously gave us one of their open mike days for the event, covered the insurance plus all stall fees have been donated back to them for their support of this fun day.

I would like extend a huge thanks to Katie form Z Club Dance Fitness for kindly providing the use of her awesome sound equipment for the day, plus she will be doing some high energy zumba for us to participate in also!

I would like to thank my Fraser Coast Fitness & Health friends, where are you, hand up ladies, if you have any questions today just ask the girls. We also go for a walk every Wednesday at 6:30am with Cheryl from the Torquay Jetty to the pier return and all are welcome to join us.

A massive thank you to the Amazing team of local businesses have come on board to showcase the high level of professional services, products, skills, tools and knowledge available to all. This will be a huge day of fun with maximum audience participation! There are stalls, performances, talks and demos including and on – Bio-aging, Massage, Foot Reflexology, Crossfit, Gyms, Meditation, Yoga, Face Painting, Zumba, Belly Dancers, Martial Arts, Tennis, Burlesque & Fitness Demos plus heaps more.

We will also be raising funds for Bayside Transformations one of our local Residential Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation non for profit Program, who will be manning the ‘healthy option’ BBQ and they have a stall with more info. I would also like to mention that Climbmax the rock wall here is donating 10% of their profits from today to Bayside so make sure you have a climb!

We are a team of passionate individuals and businesses on the Fraser Coast that work together to raise awareness and help others achieve a new way of life and thinking that is healthy, exciting, fun and will make you happy!

Our only competition is laziness, a sedentary lifestyle, poor choices, mental health, fast and junk food plus the television!

 

Every day is perfect for setting goals or starting fresh

jeanette maynes dayman parkRESEARCH shows that 44% of Australians have a goal to lose weight in 2014.

But Hervey Bay’s Jeanette Maynes believes health and fitness should be a part of everyday life, not just as a new year resolution.

The personal trainer says every day was a perfect time for setting goals or starting fresh.

“Keep planning and keep achieving, it keeps the motivation flowing.

“Every day is a new exciting beginning, a change to change.”

Ms Maynes said there was “no excuse” for recent statistics that ranks Queensland at the top of the obesity scales.

“When you talk about obesity everyone goes off their nut trying to justify it,” she said.

“I think it time to start addressing the topic… people need to become accountable for their behaviours.”

Ms Maynes said the key to achieving a healthier lifestyle was having a strong mind and 100% focus.

“Write it down,” she said.

“You must clearly visualise in your mind that you have achieved the goal before you even start.

“Break it down into small steps that you can achieve each day.

“Exercise does change your life so make time for it in your routine – it really is worth it.”

Anyone who wants to start fresh has the opportunity to take part in Ms Maynes’ free 10km community challenge on Saturday, January 18, leaving from Enzo’s to the Urangan Pier and back again.

“I support people to get out of their comfort zone and walk a little further than they usually would.

“It’s all in the mind, anyone can walk 10km, the body does what the mind tells it.

“Once people realise that with a strong focused mind they can do anything, the possibilities in life are endless.”

Ms Maynes has also written a four-week healthy eating and exercise program e-book, which is available HERE

Jeanette’s top tips

• Do not let anyone distract you. Do not eat rubbish because someone tells you to. Explain to others you have a goal and will not stray from it. Remove or avoid anyone or anything that does not completely support and encourage your goal.

• Feel proud each day that each small step is a positive change to achieving your goal and inner happiness.

• Have a strong mind. The first three weeks of starting a healthy lifestyle and fitness regime will be the toughest. Forming a new habit takes about 21 days. If that habit is clean eating and exercise you have just created a habit that your body will be thanking you for the rest of your life.

THREE SIMPLE Steps to SUCCESS – 
1. Sign Up & Download the ‘4 Week Program’ – Instant Access!
2. Follow the Meal & Exercise Plan!
3. See & Feel the Results!

I am educating people on what I have taught myself over the past years to lose weight, keep in shape, maintain your healthy goal weight, look and feel great plus achieve happiness and self-respect. The 4 Week Program provides knowledge you will be able to apply for the rest of your life and understand. No fad diets, in fact NO Diet, no quick fix, just the correct and only way that works clean healthy eating and regular exercise. It is scientific, mathematical and foolproof; so if you follow the instructions and program exactly you CANNOT Fail! The information you learn will be beneficial forever.

4 Week Program Half Cover 2014

There is a meal plan (approved by an Accredited Practising Dietitian) and also an exercise plan that I have designed as a qualified Personal Trainer. You must follow both plans. The exercise plan includes strength, cardio and stretch programs that people can also do at home or on holidays if they don’t currently attend a gym or exercise classes. It IS NOT A DIET that when you finish you don’t know what to do next and put the weight back on. There are NO shakes, meal replacements or miracle pills! This program will make you understand how it all works which is something important that you must master for your entire life!

So start NOW, it’s never too late to make a change! If you want to have a coffee, a wine or a piece of chocolate, that is up to you. This Program is not as restrictive as most as that is not how one operates in real life. We need to be flexible otherwise it puts too much pressure on us. If one just cuts everything enjoyable from their diet, failure can occur. Most foods are ok in moderation, even chocolate; it’s not that it’s not good for you, it’s just that it is high in calories so must be eaten in moderation. This is a program you can start anytime, perform anywhere anytime, not just for the 4 weeks, it’s FOREVER …. but 4 weeks straight of being strict and exact will shotgun initial weight loss and results … potentially up to a Kilo a week or More!

Forming a new habit takes approximately 21 days. If that habit is clean eating and exercise you have just created a habit that your body will be thanking you for the rest of your life! Exercise does change your life so make time for exercise in your regular routine – it really is worth it!” Transform into a FAT BURNING MACHINE from a Fat Storing Being!

TESTIMONIALS:
“Thank you Jeanette for designing a weight loss program that is so flexible & easy to follow to achieve a long term healthy lifestyle. I have tried other 4 week programs but with yours the meals are quicker to prepare & more suited to my budget. All your information is very useful & I love that it gives you ideas for so many ways to incorporate exercise into your life and if I have any questions you are there for support. Thanks again” – Participant Feedback

“Before starting Jeanette Maynes ’4 Week Program’ I had tried all kinds of diet fads. I found the best was cutting carbs out of my diet, this only lasted for a short period and then I would regain all I had lost. The 4 week program helped me to understand why I gain weight and how to manage every day life. Understanding the effects of what I put in to my body and what I need to do to loose or maintain weight has helped me live a normal easy healthy life! I didn’t have to give up the naughty foods I just had to understand how to make it not leave a lasting effect. The ’4 Week Program’ really works 8kgs down in 2 months and no weight gain in the 3 months after while maintaining! Best thing I ever did was send that message to you and actually do it!! Thanks Jeanette xxxx” – Taylor Harte

“I started the 4 Week Program to help lose a couple of kilo’s but more importantly to take control of my body again and start making healthy lifestyle changes a way of life! The 4 Week Program taught me to make wise healthy eating choices and the importance of exercise. Jeanette was always there to answer questions and her support and encouragement is amazing. It was a very simple lifestyle program to follow and one that I found works and definitely worth doing!” – Sam Andersen

This is going to be Exciting, Results Driven & Fun, so Go On take the First Step!

‘Count those Calories!’

Here is some very interesting information in regards to how many calories are in junk food. Check out the table at the bottom of this page

From 1 February this year, all major fast food chains must display the kilojoule (calorie) counts of their food with the same prominence as the price. For instance, the Grand Angus has 2630 kilojoules (630 calories). This “in-your-face” information is designed to make consumers take stock of what they, and their children, are eating.

It’s not only the Macca’s, Pizza Huts, Pizza Havens, Eagle Boys and KFCs that have to comply. Any food outlet that has 20 or more outlets in NSW, or 50 or more nationwide, will have to display the average adult daily energy intake of 8700kJ plus the kilojoule content of their foods. They have a year to comply.

So if I ate a Grand Angus 630 calories + a large fries 452 calories + a chocolate thick shake 440 calories = 1522 calories (that is over a whole days calorie intake for me in one meal)

To burn that off I would have to run nonstop for two and three quarter hours!

There is an awesome calculator on the My Doctor website for working out how many calories you burn during different exercises.
