‘A year from now you will wish you had started today.’ – Karen Lamb.
That quote rings true across so many facets of life: career, relationships, personal growth – the list goes on. One area that most people have a hankering to change, especially around this time of year, is health and wellness. Over 60% of Brits resolve to get in shape at the start of a new year, yet before February rolls around, a third of those people have stopped exercising altogether.
You don’t need to be an expert to know that a healthy diet and regular exercise regime can do wonders for the body – physically and mentally. At Moonfruit, we’re proud to support many fitness trainers, yoga practitioners, juicing gurus and other health and wellness businesses who are on a mission to help others achieve their goals. Maybe you’re looking for some advice or inspiration on how to get started, or maybe you’re a fitness professional looking to create or update a website. Regardless of the reason, check out our round up of 8 health and wellness sites to inspire you as you embark on 2015:
Yumi Yoga: Claire Tredgett has been practising yoga since 1995 and teaching it since 2003. Located in Greenwich, Yumi Yoga specializes in classes for pre and post natal types (after your baby has arrived, you can bring him or her to class!) The studio also offer info sessions on baby massage. The fun colours and cute graphics of the website add a whimsical touch.
Nama: Our mouths were drooling over the divine looking food at restaurant and teaching centre Nama. Located in Notting Hill, the restaurant serves up raw food. They also offer workshops on raw cooking, seminars on healthy eating, and cleanse and detox programmes. We love how they’ve showcased a selection of their beautifully photographed dishes on the homepage. So long turkey, hello kale.
Breathe Fitness: Anthony Mayatt’s personal training and wellness company boasts an impressive roster of testimonials – actors and media types have used his services and he regularly appears in print and online media as a fitness expert. Customers have the option of working out in a gym, outdoors or in the comfort of their own homes – Anthony and his team pride themselves on designing programmes to accommodate hectic schedules.
Beyond Fitness: Beyond Fitness bills itself as the ‘UK’s biggest health and wellness movement, changing lives through juice detox, a clean diet and life coaching.’ We’d be hard-pressed to argue. They’ve designed a gorgeous site, complete with recipes (that’s their Fig and Feta Cyprus Salad above in case you were wondering), tips and advice, all with a very positive and holistic outlook. Good vibes.
Stefan Saigau: With a background as a commando deep squadron diver, Stefan Saigau knows what it’s like to have your limits pushed. For the past 20 years he’s been working as a fitness trainer to London’s elite. No matter what you want to achieve (weight loss, increased muscle mass, etc) Stefan’s got the knowledge and wherewithal to help you get there.
42 Juice: Coral and Natalie set up 42 Juice after personal experiences with illness inspired them to find alternatives to traditional medicine. They researched the healing properties of fresh juices and, realising that there were many benefits, decided to launch a business. 42 Juice is Brighton’s first cold-pressed juice and smoothie bar. The girls also offer cleanses and juice deliveries. They’ve been profiled in the Sunday Times Style Magazine, as well as on various health and wellness blogs.
Heather Briant: Life coach Heather Briant has worked with everyone from BBC television presenters to business executives. Using her past experience in restaurant, event and production management, Heather has carved out a career that allows her to help people reach their full potential, both in the professional and personal spheres. If you’re struggling to stay on track or need someone to bounce ideas off of, hiring a life coach can do wonders, and Heather is one of the best.
The Well Garden: The Well Garden is a natural and health wellness centre designed to help you chill out (something we could probably all use following the holiday hubbub). Boasting a wide range of classes (yoga, qi gong) and treatments (deep tissue massage, reflexology), they’ve got something for everyone on the menu. Check out their ‘Workshops’ page for upcoming events.
