"Many a False Step Was Made by Standing Still" - Fortune Cookie
As I close the book on last year and get stuck in to training for a new year, the inevitable “M” word rears its ugly head. Yup, M stands for MOTIVATION. Some of us have too little of it, some of us have too much of it – but either way, it’s important to understand how to find that optimal level to get you through these early months, particularly for those not blessed with warm winters.
Whether you’re a professional athlete, a new mom trying to get back in shape, or a senior battling arthritis, the first steps after some time off are the hardest. Motivation to move is like a snowball rolling downhill. The first push is the hardest, but as it picks up speed it builds in size and power.

Sometimes it feels like there are more types and brands of water than drops in the ocean. You go to the grocery store and discover a huge shelf packed with different brands of water that all claim to be health-beneficial. Add in the hundreds of in-house water purifiers, and it can seem like a “sea” of confusing options (cue the pun).
Thankfully, your choice doesn’t have to be that complicated.
What if achieving your next level of high performance didn’t have anything to do with building more muscle?
According to research, your highest level of optimal health and athletic performance may be more about using the resources you already have to their highest capacity…
And it all comes down to a new way of managing your hydration.
But... Can hydration be the key..?
