Mike Melford Performance & Personal Training

My training approach is professional yet friendly and my style is always adapting to create a dynamic training relationship. Throughout our sessions you will be introduced you to new and innovative ways to exercise, which will help motivate you to stay focused on your goal(s). Where am I based? I am based in Medway, North Kent and do both home visits and gym based training. The gym where I do my training is The Park Club Chatham . There is also a good selection of recreational fields within the Medway area that I use for outdoor based sessions

Bear with me, this is my 1st attempt at this and my design skills aren't great 🤦🏽‍♂️
...
➡️But hopefully you get the message!
....
👉🏽With the current climate being somewhat testing some of us may be struggling to find things to fill our day as well as staying positive
...
➡️Step Up Boredom which has been advocated as a contributor to overeating!😈
...
👉🏽The results of this particular study imply that "interventions aimed at dealing with boredom, or perhaps improving attentional control, and alternative means for coping with negative emotions might be employed to reduce emotional eating"
...
➡️What Can We Do To Counteract Boredom?
...
👉🏽Consider the below
...
🔸️Create a daily schedule of activities/jobs
🔸️Ensure you tick off each job when complete to give a sense of satisfaction
🔸️Acceptance of situation - Unfortunately we are limited in our daily activities outside of our homes, trying your best to acknowledge the current climate may help with your mindset
🔸️Stay positive - What have you achieved today? Consider going out of your way contact someone to not only fill some time but spread some positivity to them as well😃
🔸️Do a proper Job - Whatever your task is aim to do it to the best of your ability - This can fill your time plus give you a great sense of fulfillment when complete
🔸️Challenge yourself - Is there a new skill you can learn as a way to keep yourself busy?

➡️If you have any other suggestions please fire them at me!

👉🏽Stay Safe❤

Keep Talking..☎️📱📞😀💬
...
⚠️According to Mind.Org website "approx 1 in 4 people will experience a mental health problem each year"
⚠️"In England 1 in 6 people report experiencing a common mental health problem(anxiety & depression) in any given week"
👉🏽During a typical 1-2-1 Gym PT session I would be conscious of the Talk:Work Ratio however in these times of reduced human contact I just want to encourage you all to talk regularly
➡️Talking about things was never my greatest strength growing up (ask my close family and friends)
👉🏽When things got tough talking to a professional counsellor 100% helped me become better at dealing with my stresses
➡️I must still make it clear that I am NO mental health expert
✅Mentalhealth.Org say "
Friendship is a crucial element in protecting our mental health. We need to talk to our friends and we want to listen when our friends want to talk to us. Our friends can keep us grounded and can help us get things in perspective"
➡️Even talking to fellow PT's/coaches this week has helped me with the current global challenges
👉🏽When I go for my daily (social distance aware) walk I use the time to speak or voice message family,friends and make contact with a few clients and it's amazing how that actually helps with creating positivity
👨🏽‍⚕️Like I said I am no expert just an everyday man who feels the benefit of a good chat!
