The Strength Matters Model
The Strength Matters Model provides a visual illustration of the Four Key Components of health and fitness that must be managed and strengthened to create long-term success. This model applies to elite and beginners alike, in any sport and for any goal.
The Four Key Components Of Health And Fitness
- Activity. Health & Wellness is built inside and outside the gym. This component is so much more than just your daily workouts. This is about assessing your daily activity – from walking to sitting, we look at the bigger picture for optimal health and wellness.
- Hydration. Simply put, how much water are you drinking and how often? Water regulates your body temperature and lubricates your joints. It helps transport nutrients to give you energy and keep you healthy. If you’re not hydrated, your body can’t perform at its highest level. Yet, the average human consumes only three of the recommended seven glasses of water a day. This is as important as your activity levels and we monitor this closely.
- Lifestyle. This means cutting through all the feelings, personalities, opinions and egos and boiling your daily habits down to a handful of objective tasks that give you an absolute pulse on where things are in your life right now. Sleep, Stress, Fun. They all matter and without your lifestyle in check, your health and fitness goals will always come second.
“Simplicity Is The Ultimate Sophistication – Leonardo Da Vinci”
With the Activity, Hydration, and Lifestyle Components strong, you start to create a solid foundation of daily habits where everything becomes easier and you naturally start to make healthier food choices. Only then, do we add the final component, Nutrition.
- Nutrition. This is the final piece of the puzzle. The average person gains 11 pounds for every diet they go on. Our philosophy to nutrition is that everyone is unique. All diets work and it’s a matter of finding the right solution for the right person. Equally, the same goes for performance. It’s not a one size, fits all solution. We believe in the functional medicine philosophy of having a healthy gut, avoiding medication and supplementation where possible, all whilst helping you fall in love with a healthy eating lifestyle.
