canfitpro launches new guidelines to achieve optimal health

TORONTO, Feb. 5, 2015 /CNW/ - canfitpro, Canada's largest provider of fitness education, has launched its Recommendations on Physical Activity, Nutrition, and Positive Mindset for Optimal Health to provide both fitness professionals and fitness consumers a holistic understanding of what they can, and should, be doing to achieve optimal health.

Inspired to make these bold recommendations, in part by the increasing rates of overweight and obesity, these recommendations will be part of the solution to the greatest health care crisis facing Canada and Canadians. Using realistic targets founded both in science as well as evidence proven in our over 20 years of educating fitness professionals, canfitpro is proud to continue its leadership position in the global fitness and wellness industries.   

Based in part on the World Health Organization's Global Recommendations on Physical Activity for Health, canfitpro has gone even further by including the critical elements of nutrition and positive mindset. Furthermore, the recommendations include suggestions for beginner, intermediate, and advanced fitness consumers to ensure everyone has something they can safely and effectively accomplish.

Intended for otherwise healthy adults between the ages of 18-64, canfitpro's Recommendations on Physical Activity, Nutrition, and Mindset for Optimal Health addresses the need for Canadians to be both more physically active as well as adopt healthy nutrition practices in the presence a positive mindset.

"Applause for the comprehensive and sweeping changes canfitpro has had the courage to make. Without change like this we might never see an improvement in Canadian health. Now it is possible. And to bring together the tri-fecta of exercise, mindfulness and nutrition is brilliant. One can exercise all they want but without making nutritional change incorporating the benefits of Eating Clean, there is little benefit." Tosca Reno, best selling author of the Eat-Clean Diet® series
