Imagine a horizontal line on a page. Imagine this line as a continuum. In your mind label the left hand side of the line as “Disease/Malaise/Unwellenss”. Now label the right hand side “Perfect Health, Fitness, and Well-being”. Consider where you might fall on this line? At Pace Training and Health our goal is to shift our clients and customers to the right on this line; to move them as close to perfect health, peak fitness and optimal well-being, as possible.
We are always on the look out for ground breaking advancements in the fields of health and fitness to bring to our clients. We are interested in the non-mainstream media; the advanced research. We are about dispelling what we call “misinformation”. For example, we’re happy to tell our clients and customers that not only are saturated fatty acids not bad for you, but some are actually beneficial! We consolidate this research to produce the regimes (booklets) and charts listed on our Products page.
We want to tell you what the multi million dollar pharmaceutical companies don’t want you to know; that you can use many natural remedies to improve your life quality, longevity, athletic performance, and even prevent and treat disease – without the use of drugs. We want our clients to know that there are drugs out there that will do you more harm than good! That’s not to say all drugs are bad or are of no use. No. In fact the invention of antibiotics for example, particularly penicillin, revolutionised the treatment of Infectious Disease – an amazing breakthrough that has saved thousands of lives. Pathogens, such as viruses, bacteria, mycoplasma, and funguses, are real threats; they are real organisms that do cause disease. And as such, there is undoubtedly a time and place for pharmaceutical intervention. However, we believe drugs should be a last resort as all drugs have side effects.
We strongly believe that many illnesses can be prevented, arrested and even reversed using natural remedies and life-style changes. Of particular interest, are cancers. We now know, from the fields of epigenetics and nutrigenomics, that many cancers can be avoided. Many health care professionals will tell you that cancer is just one of those unfortunate things that happen to some people and that there’s not much that can be done about it. We don’t subscribe to that theory. “It is now quite well established that around 66% of cancers are a direct result of our life style choices” says Mal. Cancer is not just inevitable part of the human race’s biological destiny; many can be avoided!
Others may challenge by posing the question “what about the theory of genetic predisposition?”. Absolutely! We strongly believe that genetic predisposition plays a role in many diseases. However, by the laws of natural selection, one would expect this to produce a consistent prevalence rate of disease. When one considers that the prevalence rates of many illnesses today are increasing; that they are not fixed percentages of the population, then this should raise alarm bells for us all. Why is diabetes on the increase? Why are more women being diagnosed with breast cancer? Why are more men dying of Prostate Cancer? This was not the case hundreds of years ago. So what is different in lives now days? “To us it’s pretty clear…” says Mal “… back then we didn’t have things like pesticides, artificial sweeteners, highly refined foods, Teflon, man-made environmental toxins, hydrogenated fatty acids, mercury-filled immunisations, hormone-injected and colour-injected meats (Yes, colour injected!). Is it any wonder that disease prevalence rates have increased?”. Notes Mal “This is where the life-style coaching comes in; a large portion of my work is coaching clients about life-style choices; choices that can influence their probability of disease”. Genetic predisposition means there’s a chance of getting that disease; it’s not a definite!
Our aim is to set up our client’s life style to maximise health and well-being. There are ways and means of both preventing and treating many illnesses – and we show our clients what they are and how to act on them! What you put into your body today may not make much difference now, but 20 or 30 years down the track, things may be a different story. Now is the time to act. This is particularly pertinent for those looking to slow down the aging process. Mal is now doing a lot of anti-aging work with clients. Think you can’t influence the rate at which you age? Just consider the difference that 10 years of smoking might make to your ageing process and, say, the quality of your skin and teeth. Yes, this is an extreme example, but it shows that life-style choices absolutely do make a difference to your ageing.
Our products and services and general recommendations, are designed to improve the quality of your life, by preventing disease, by addressing both acute and chronic health problems, by maximising athletic performance, or by slowing down your ageing process. To further get our message out there, we will shortly be offering comprehensive seminars on various health and fitness related topics such as those touched on above.
“As for my personal training clients, I am passionate about taking a holistic approach to achieving their goals. I give my clients the best of what I can offer. Whether my client’s goal is to lose body fat, or they’re an athlete preparing for competition, I offer them the consolidation of 20 years of research into training, fat loss, health, fitness, diet, and nutrition. I have worked with a full spectrum of clients, from elderly women looking to gain a little strength, to diabetics looking to avoid insulin dependence, through to competitive body builders looking to win a state title. Every person is different and every person has different needs.” says Mal.
As a life-style coach, my aim is to look at all aspects of my client’s lives, such as sleep, stress, and diet, that we may be able to improve to allow them to achieve their goal(s) in the healthiest and most efficient manner possible” says Mal.
Can we make a difference to your life?
