A career spent in personal training taught guest writer Kim Harvey that healthy habits are hard to teach in adults, as learned behaviour isn't easy to change. Her solution? Start teaching the younger generation tools to manage their health and change the future prospects of Aotearoa. Kim has single-handedly built a successful not-for-profit virtual health program that reaches 20,000 Kiwi kids every year - but this ambitious woman is not stopping there.
After spending five years as a personal trainer my eyes were wide open to the challenges adults face trying to develop healthy habits. Even with major physical issues drastically impacting their quality of life, small changes often seemed too difficult to stick with for my clients. In all honesty, it felt like my efforts were hopeless.
