The Elephant Story
A man was walking through an elephant camp, and he spotted that all that was holding the elephants back from escaping was a small piece of rope tied to one of their legs...
..As the man gazed upon the elephants, he was completely confused as to why the elephants didn’t just use their strength to break the rope and escape the camp. They could easily have done so, but instead, they didn’t try to at all.
Curious and wanting to know the answer, he asked a trainer nearby why the elephants were just standing there and never tried to escape.
The trainer replied;
“When they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”
The only reason that the elephants weren’t breaking free and escaping from the camp was that over time they adopted the belief that it just wasn’t possible.
Moral of the story:
No matter how much the world tries to hold people back, they should always continue with the belief that what they want to achieve is possible. Believing they can become successful is the most important step in actually achieving it.

- Sets goals and targets to manage your progress.
- Teaches you how to use equipment and perform exercises to get the maximum benefit.
Nearly every gym has nutrition experts. As they say at Nuffield Health, "What you eat and drink is so much more than simply fuel. Your diet provides your body with the building blocks that replenish your cells both inside and out, protect you from illness, and even help maintain your mood."
Nutrition is different for everybody. We have different tastes, reactions and lifestyles to consider. Nutrition therapists are trained to work with you one-to-one, designing a nutritional programme that is specifically tailored to your needs.
Join a gym that also has a spa. Stop the world for a moment and step into a place where you can recharge your batteries, replenish your energy levels and unwind your mind.
Rest and relaxation aren't a luxury, they’re essential.
Other services offered by gyms include; acupuncture, counselling, beauty, physiotherapy, health assessments, life coaching and sports massages.
Today, most people practising yoga are engaged in a programme of physical postures designed to purify the body and provide the physical strength and stamina required for your work life balance. It is not about being able to touch your toes. Yoga clubs and classes are usually chatty, friendly places where you can gradually build muscle strength and flexibility helping you burn more calories during an average day.
Classes have changed dramatically over the last decade. Remember this?
Well classes aren't like this anymore!
