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 bike...it'll help the environment, too.
Develop goals and push yourself to achieve
Do the best you can with what you’ve got.
Believe in yourself!
