“People have trouble sticking to an exercise programme when they don't really know how far they've come or how successful they are.” - Ray Conway - Personal Trainer
“I have been a PT for 15 years, after spending nearly 20 years working in a high pressure environment as a money market trader. I help executives get fit and stay healthy through my 'Corporate Athletic' programme. I estimate that 40% of CEOs are technically obese. (The technical definition of obesity is having a body mass index of more than 30. Body mass index is the ratio of your weight in kilograms to the square of your height in metres).
In your early days as an Executive, you had all the energy in the world. The fast pace of life exhilarated you. You occasionally had to strain to do everything you could but you pushed through. Now you are starting to feel fatigued. Just that pushing through gets harder and harder.
The fatigue that you think is the product of nonstop over work and not getting younger is really all about your health or is sometimes known as The Human Energy Crisis.”
After working in a high pressure environment for over 20-years, Ray understands how your career can take priority – even at the expense of your health! Following on; Ray looks at why many CEOs are falling into the trap of ‘The Human Energy Crisis.’
