Nuria Rodriguez, Nutritional Therapist at Fix East Village introduces the online 28-day nutrition & movement programme
Nuria, tell us, what is the '28-day Full Body Reset' programme?
It is a 28-day programme that allows people to have a total body reset over a 4-week period. It’s a fully supported nutrition that gives participants the chance to access unlimited yoga and Pilates classes for four weeks.
All the evidence shows that regular exercise and good nutrition are key to improving your long-term health outcomes, and also that they boost day to day happiness. We wanted to create a structure where people can get a lot of daily support as they make positive changes to their lifestyles. February can feel like a long month at the end of winter, and we wanted to give people something really positive to help them enter the Spring feeling really great. I’m really excited!
What can you achieve in the 28-day programme?
Everybody's biochemistry and physiology is different. So the end results won't be the same for all the participants. However the programme has been designed with the following goals in mind. To:
Establish healthy lifestyle habits
Restore energy levels
Reset your metabolism for a fat-burning boost
Improve body composition
Boost your immune system
Support your exercise and fitness goals
And Nuria, why create a programme that combines good nutrition and movement?
I am very excited to be able to deliver this programme in collaboration with teachers at Fix as I am passionate about the great results you can get with with a combination of good nutrition and movement.
It is also an opportunity for you to try many the different styles of yoga and Pilates taught at Fix. Regular yoga and Pilates has been shown to offer a range of health benefits including reducing blood pressure, increasing upper body strength and endurance, flexibility, and creating improvements in perceived levels stress and health perception. However the improvements differ for the type of yoga.(1) This is a unique opportunity to try all types and discover what is the best one for you.
In addition, if you want to lose those extra kilos, this programme is the right one for you. Research says that the best way of managing weight is not getting on a diet or doing exercise but combining both. Carefully planned nutrition and exercise together will really help people see and feel significant gains in a relatively short space of time.(2)
What can people expect to receive during the programme?
By signing up to this programme you will receive a resource pack including a flexible meal plan with simple recipes and a shopping list. You will be part of a private facebook group/online community and I will give you the support to go throughout the programme and implement changes to achieve your health goals. On the first and last days of the programme I will measure your body composition so you can track the physical changes in your body. For this I will meet you at Fix East Village, but don’t worry if you cannot make it, the body composition analysis is optional.
So I hope you will join me and take the chance to Reset your metabolism and Reboot your body in 2019!
