We all know that feeling you get when you get home from a run, a walk with the dog, or a good training session with a friend. We may be hot, sweaty and tired, but it’s a good kind of tired, and gives us a sense of satisfaction that we’ve achieved some kind of health or fitness goal for the day. Any form of physical activity should be seen as an enjoyable pastime, not as a chore that needs to be ticked off a list. Unfortunately, we are becoming a society that views exercise as something that is only for the hard core athletes, something that we need to work hard at in order to see the benefits.
Exercise Right Week runs from 23-29 May, an annual campaign aiming to encourage Australian’s to be more active, and to know where to get the right advice regarding moving more. According to the Exercise Right website, this year’s theme is Exercise for the Right Reasons. This is because a lot of the dialogue in the health and fitness industry talks about exercise as a chore, or a punishment for eating the wrong types of foods. It pushes exercise a weight loss tool or a way to create the ideal physique. For many people, this stance creates a negative attitude between our minds and movement. Exercise Right Week aims to highlight physical, social and mental benefits of exercise, without the negativity. There is a range of free events that everyone can participate in during Exercise Right Week, so get out there in the fresh air!

The All in One Health Test provides a comprehensive guide to your health, sports, skin, nutrition, ancestry and personality. Discover which sports are most suited to your DNA, which nutrients you should get more of, how susceptible you are to disease, and more about your ancestral family tree. For each category, you will receive a comprehensive report which provides unique information based on the DNA sample that you provide. You’ll be loaded with information and suggestions on what’s right for you in terms of diet and exercise, as well being informed about your ancestry, disease susceptibility and personality traits.
The DNA Diet and Healthy Weight Test will help to answer your questions about why losing weight can be difficult for you, and provides customised fitness and nutrition recommendations that will have you on the right track to health and happiness. You will receive a personalised report based on an analysis of your DNA. The report provides you with background information on your genes and genetics in general, your ability to lose weight, how well you utilise the foods you eat, your response to cardiovascular exercise, and a range of strategies for diet and exercise, all formulated just for your DNA sequence.
So exercise should be a part of your life, but it should be fun and enjoyable, not something that you have to drag yourself to do each day. Discover the best exercise and diet types for you, with EasyDNA Australia, and check out the events available in your state during Exercise Right Week!
