Train For Life – Getting Started

Train For Life

Crafted by Barrie Uncovered’s editorial team in partnership with Core Evolution Fitness

Your Guide To Better Living

Every month, Dave Fraser of Core Evolution Fitness will be sharing tips on healthy living.

Covering fitness, nutrition, wellness and exercise techniques, Dave’s expertise as a personal trainer will help you get fit, and adopt the Train For Life philosophy.



One of the most common questions we get is how? How do I get started on the path to better living and a healthier lifestyle?

It can be intimidating to walk into a gym, or even to start exercising. And even when you can see the benefits to lifestyle changes, the amount of hard work that’s needed to get there can seem overwhelming.

So how to start?

By starting small!

You don’t have to endure a grueling 5 hour workout on your first day.

Start easier, and simpler. But get active!

Here are 3 EASY ways to get started on the Train For Lifestyle.


Get Walking

It’s natural to use shortcuts, especially when you are in a rush to get out the door in the morning or headed into work.

You might not be able to walk to work or school every day, but incorporating more walking into your daily routine is achievable. Skip the elevator and take the stairs at the office. Do the same with the escalators in malls or shopping plazas.

Try taking a walk during your coffee breaks or lunch. If you like the outdoors take a 20 minute walk after dinner, or for a longer hike during the weekend. There are plenty of spots in Barrie to get your walk on!

Stretching those legs for even a half hour a day will;

  • reduce risk of heart disease and stroke.
  • increase your heart and lung fitness
  • lead to stronger bones and improved balance.

Improve Your Diet

Proper nutrition is vital to improving your fitness.

Take the time to pack a lunch every day, so that you don’t have to rely on fast food or cafeteria fare at midday.

Dinner can be challenging, especially if you are coming home after a long day. Resist the temptation to order a pizza! If you like cooking, try preparing a week’s worth of meals on Sunday so that you always have good eats on standby.

Include a good amount of fruit, nuts and veggies in all of your meals, and limit your portion sizes.

And be consistent! Everyone is going to fall off the good eating wagon from time to time, or indulge in a second helping of desert.

The key is to make that the exception, rather than the rule. Get back on the good eats the next day.


Drink More Water

Our bodies are upwards of 60% water, and it’s vital to your health to keep the liquids flowing.

A good rule of thumb is the 8×8 rule: Try drinking 8 glasses of 8 ounces every day.

Drinking more water will

  • lubricate the joints.
  • boost skin health and beauty.
  • cushion the brain, spinal cord, and other sensitive tissues.
  • and regulate body temperature.


All of these small adjustments will help. And the more of them you do, the better you will feel. And the better you feel, the more you’ll want to do!
