Annabel – Cook

Over four decades Annabel has cooked all over the world.  While originally a trained chef, she admits that her skills have been honed in her own kitchen preparing food for family and friends.

Her passion lies in the Mediterranean philosophy towards food after spending over a decade living in Italy and Spain.  Rather than obsessing on calorie counts Annabel has seen time and again the benefits of JERF – just eating real food.

Sonia – Nutritionist

Sonia is a qualified nutritionist and has always worked with food. A chef for many years and then on to teach commercial cookery, Sonia’s desire to understand food and how it connects to health and wellbeing then led her to study a Bachelor of food science in nutritional medicine.

Sonia enjoys combining her knowledge of natural medicine and cookery to promote healthy aging, and prevent the damaging effects of stress related illness with her clients. “My clients are often amazed at the profound improvements to quality of life that are achieved through simple changes to diet and lifestyle”

Dr. Rob – GP

Robert North is a former ER doctor who made the transition to family GP while seeking a better lifestyle for he and his family.  His passion is prevention “most of what I see in my surgery today could have been prevented, frequently with only a small modification to the patient’s lifestyle.”

We’ve also turned Dr. Rob into the Fitat60.com chatbot (lower right of this screen).  It’s not the real Dr. Rob, but hopefully helps point our Movers in the right direction.

Time to Stretch

Stretching is a great way to wake your body up. Stretching is also the best way to really tune into your body and understand what’s working and what might need a little help.

Time to up your game ladies

OK, so you have got yourself into a regular fitness routine. Well done you. If the first step is the hardest to achieve then consistency after it is a very close second! Slowly but surely, you should work on increasing your fitness level. Use it, or lose it.

Simple elements to de-stress

Oxygen, water and sunlight are the most basic life giving elements on this earth. Without them we have no existence here, but our current lifestyles being so hectic, we seem to take it all for granted and not much thought goes into the fact that we need these elements daily to survive properly.

The importance of nutrition as we mature

We are all aware that eating a balanced diet is vital for health, but how does this message relate to our quality of life and healthy ageing? What do we need to consider when making sure our current diet is still serving our ever-changing health goals?

Mind Over Muscle

The key to long-term weight loss success may not be the body, but the mind. Research indicates that those who have a positive outlook on life are more likely to lose weight—and stay thin. But how can you have a positive outlook when you have been burned so many times before? Is it possible to “will your way” to losing weight?

Understanding Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is called the silent thief because you do not experience any symptoms, the first time you know about it is when a bone snaps unexpectedly. Osteoporosis means “porous bones” and it is a condition where the skeleton becomes very fragile and the bones break easily.

The Importance of Getting Fit at Any Age

One of the simplest and most effective ways to reduce the visible effects of ageing and improve your overall health and well-being is physical fitness and exercise.

The benefits of collagen in healthy ageing

As we age our bodies naturally produce less collagen. With less collagen, our bones and cartilage become more fragile. The result is discomfort, a higher risk of fractures, less agility and possible loss of independence.
