Low Tox Life - Alex Fergus PT talks exercise

There’s a lot of stress around exercise and there need not be. I’ve brought Alex Fergus PT & Health coach to top executives back on the show (remember our sleep chat last year?)

Alex’s down to earth nature and relaxed attitude will have you understanding the importance of exercise, sure, but how little one needs to to to get big returns as well as tips to incorporate movement throughout the day that doesn’t need to be in the form of a ‘focused class’. If you want to learn about the effectiveness of exercise and getting bang for your buck, this show will be perfect for you.

 You can listen to the episode here - https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/jackrabbitfm/low-tox-life/e/49859444 


In the show we talk about:

      • Alex’s advice is to ditch the early morning workout, and sleep in! Sleep is one of the most important aspects of good health and feeling your best.
      • How sleep helps lose fat
      • Physical exercise is just another stress on the body, so if you’re experiencing stress in your life already, then putting more stress on your body is one of the last things you should be doing.
      • Hormones matter more than calories, if your hormones are completely messed up, then burning calories isn’t going to count towards helping you feel better…
      • The 2 types of exercise Alex suggest you incorporate into your week are: something slow (walking or yoga), something short and sharp (weight training or sprints – or both if you’re feeling great!)
      • Plus more!
