But first. Coffee!

At Iconic we love when we hear something we enjoy is good for us as it takes away all guilt (we don’t do guilt!). It’s the little things in life that make us happy and nothing perks us up better than a decent cup of coffee.

If you regularly partake you know how it can inject a bit of life into you almost instantly, but did you know coffee has antioxidants and can help you workout for longer at a more intense level.

Everyone knows that regular exercise is good for the body. But exercise is also one of the most effective ways to improve your mental health. Regular exercise can have a profoundly positive impact on depression, anxiety, ADHD, and more. It also relieves stress, improves memory, helps you sleep better, and boosts overall mood. And you don’t have to be a fitness fanatic to reap the benefits. Research indicates that modest amounts of exercise can make a difference. No matter your age or fitness level, you can learn to use exercise as a powerful tool to feel better.

At Iconic Health Clubs our vision has always been to inspire better quality of life, improved well-being, and the value of health and fitness in the communities we serve. With this in mind we have launched our Iconic Inspiration series to share our members stories to motivate you on your health and fitness journey.

We are start our first series with a note from our Iconic member David Doyle.

My story is, a year and a half ago I had a sudden change in my life that had an effect on my mental health, my confidence and motivation. It took a lot out of me rebuilding a new life in one sense. I joined Iconic Health Clubs to bring a start to changes and within the first month, I lost over a stone in weight. I ran a marathon to raise funds for a mental health charity very close to my heart and I suddenly realized this new lease of life; I started to see life a bit different. I focused on my training in the past year I have not only rebuilt myself but I have lost over 4 and a half stone in weight. I have run, so far 7 marathons and currently training for the SSE Airtricity half marathon and The Dublin Marathon in October 2018. I have gone on to be a motivator for others and sharing useful motivation points and stories on Instagram to help motivate others who have been finding it hard to reach goals, I have worked on my own fitness/motivation weekly target goal chart with the aim to have structure and balance that helps reach your targets and goals.

I have a motto that in life we create our own special moments to cherish that we choose our future and destiny. I believe in focusing in the I CAN and NOT I CAN’T.
Thank for letting me share this with you.

David.

We hope these stories, from real members will motivate you to keep going on your fitness journey. You too can benefit, from getting active and believing in yourself. From all of us at Iconic Health Clubs, we would like to congratulate David on firstly sharing his story with us but also for achieving such fantastic results. It truly reinforces to our team why we love this industry and how it can make such and impact on our members wellbeing.

1. PROBLEM: YOU EAT THE WRONG LUNCH
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? Not so fast. Sure, it’ll set you up nicely, but choosing the wrong lunch will leave you with a lack of energy, especially if you’re working late.

If you crave an afternoon catnap, you’re probably not getting enough protein midway through the 9-5. ‘If you’re sat at a desk all day, a protein-rich lunch will keep your physical energy topped up through to the evening,’ explains registered nutritionist Rhiannon Lambert. Read more
