Tips from Shari Leiterman

Shari Leiterman holds a B.S.  Degree in Exercise Physiology.  As Director of Club Hygiene Health Retreat in Florida, she provided nutritional counseling, exercise training and meditation therapy together with Dr. Doug Grahman, noted author on fitness and health.  If you’re interested in personal counseling or massage, give Shari a call at 551-1331. 
She works “1-on-1” or with groups. 
A combination of exercise keeps interest up.  In addition to walking, running and swimming, try some Tai Chih.  Impromptu groups gather in the parks. 

Work out with a friend.  Being with people who share the same goals improves attitude and motivation 

Pampering is an essential ingredient to any fitness program, especially in a polluted city.  Make time for massage and top it off with a relazing spa. 

You don’t have to be rich and famous to get into shape.  Parks and public schools in Kaohsiung have facilities free to ouse after hours.  City pool rates are reasonable. Commercial health centers in town offer memberships for purchase in “block time”. 

The “you are what you eat” trend has caught on here.  Many  "Green Stores" have sprung up around Kaohsiung serving healthy sandwiches, grains and vegetables.  Some even deliver. 

Take advantage of the “healing arts” typical in Taiwan.  Aromatherapy, reflexology and meditation are good starters. 

Create exercise alternatives:  If you work on the 12th  floor, take the stairs instead of the elevator.  Trade in your scooter for a'll help the environment, too. 

Develop goals and push yourself to achieve them. 

Do the best you can with what you’ve got.  Believe in yourself!
