To address this gap, we've established our own perspective on health and fitness. Health, for us, signifies a physiological state where diseases are absent, and the body effortlessly maintains metabolic equilibrium (homeostasis). On the other hand, fitness denotes the body's capability to engage in activities beyond a rested state.
Our primary focus at Health Results is on healthy longevity. We believe exercise should enhance current and future fitness levels while safeguarding long-term well-being. We understand that pursuing physical activities that jeopardise the health of your hips and knees, in the long run, is counterproductive.
Therefore, we emphasize activities that contribute to metabolic fitness not only in the present but also in the future. We prioritise exercises that promote holistic well-being and support you in achieving your health and fitness goals sustainably.
Obviously, when it comes to products to improve your fitness and look after your muscles, the first place to start is our 12-week MARS Programme.
Our 12-week MARS Longevity Exercise & Fitness Training Programme
For absolute beginners to professional athletes.
Explore what is the right MARS (Movement Aerobics Resistance and Stance) for you. Dive into a world of better fitness curated by our team: Olympic Gold Medallist James Cracknell, International Footballer Christian Daily, Personal Trainer Charlie Babb and myself.
It is totally different to anything you may have heard of or even tried yourself before. While most fitness regimes burn a hole in your pocket with personalised training or give you a generic, one-size-fits-all routine, MARS brings you the best of both worlds. Tailored to your unique yet affordable and lifelong needs, this is not just a quick fix but a lifetime commitment to your health. And you ONLY ever pay once.
As our organisation focuses on healthy longevity, exercise must help increase fitness for both present and future demands of physical activity, but not to the detriment of our long-term health and fitness. In other words, it is pointless pounding the tarmac hard for miles on end, day in day out, if it damages your hips and knees in the long term.
We describe our programmes as being LEFT focused, Longevity Exercise & Fitness Training.
Nutrition & Muscle Support
When it comes to fortifying your muscles, protein takes the lead as the most vital macronutrient.
Various experts offer varying recommendations for daily protein intake, but the consensus drawn from extensive research suggests that you should consume approximately 1.5 grams of protein per day for every kilogram of your ideal body weight. For instance, if you weigh 80 kg, your target intake would be around 120 grams of high-quality protein. Keep in mind that plant-based proteins may require higher consumption due to their lower bioavailability.
If you find yourself falling short of this target, considering the addition of a whey protein supplement to your daily regimen could prove beneficial. Other supplements geared towards muscle development include Creatine and BCAAs (Branched-Chain Amino Acids). While these specific supplements are not available in our product range, we recommend opting for unflavoured, natural powder versions when making your purchase elsewhere.
While bodybuilding supplements may have their place for some individuals, establishing a strong foundation of essential vitamins is crucial for muscle strength and recovery. Let's return to the fundamentals, whether through nutrient-rich foods or dietary supplements.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids
At first glance, fish oil might not strike you as a quintessential muscle growth supplement. However, when considering its long-term advantages, incorporating it into your weekly routine becomes a no-brainer. Omega-3s are renowned for their ability to reduce muscle soreness and inflammation.
Surprisingly, muscle weakness and cramps can be indicators of vitamin D deficiency. Research also establishes a connection between adequate vitamin D levels and enhanced muscle strength and posture.
While vitamin A doesn't directly bolster muscle strength, it plays a pivotal role in maintaining bone health and supporting your immune system, ensuring you don't skip your gym sessions due to illness.
Vitamin C facilitates iron absorption, a critical mineral for optimising exercise performance.
The science behind vitamin B12 suggests it can combat fatigue while aiding haemoglobin production, contributing to sustained energy levels during your weightlifting sessions.
For those deficient in magnesium, their muscle-building endeavours may be undermined. This essential mineral participates in muscle contraction, heart rate regulation, and energy generation.
Emerging research suggests that zinc plays a part in post-exercise skeletal muscle regeneration, assisting in the repair of muscle fibres after intense lifting sessions.
It's no surprise that potassium is a popular ingredient in sports drinks. This electrolyte ensures proper muscle contractions and maintains optimal hydration levels, both critical for achieving your strength goals.
Collagen, the most abundant protein in the human body, plays a crucial role in muscle health and overall fitness. It forms the connective tissue in muscles, tendons, and ligaments, providing the structural support needed for muscle function and movement. Collagen also contributes to muscle recovery and repair, helping to alleviate post-workout soreness and supporting the development of lean muscle mass. Additionally, collagen supports joint health, which is essential for maintaining mobility and preventing injuries during exercise. By incorporating collagen into your fitness routine, you can promote muscle strength, flexibility, and overall physical well-being.
Weightlifting demands an abundance of oxygen. Iron aids in haemoglobin production, responsible for transporting oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body. Essentially, iron helps maintain high energy levels, robust muscles, and controlled breathing during your workouts.
Many of the above vitamins and minerals can be found in our MYVIT Personalised Supplementation Quiz, and I couldn’t image any longer hitting the gym without my daily tailored dose. Then, in addition, I would recommend the following are absolute essentials when it comes to maintaining or progressing fitness levels and preserving or building muscle.
Immune & Hydration
In addition to the right nutrition, supplements and exercise routine, our muscle-sculpting service utilizes a combination of cutting-edge High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology, simultaneously combined with RF treatment, to generate supramaximal muscle contractions and fat burning that cannot be achieved through regular exercise.
How effective is the treatment? Well, it is scientifically proven that after three 30-minute sessions, it reduces body fat in the treatment area on average by 20% and increases muscle thickness by 21%. Contact our treatment centre for more details.
