Hello from Martin
Hi everyone and welcome to my website. My name is Martin and I am the owner and founder of Wellbeing4Life. I created this website to help others transform into fitter, stronger, leaner, happy, healthier, and more confident individuals. I am fed up seeing and hearing other trainers selling a false promise to people. Getting their hopes up only for them to come crashing down when it’s unsustainable.
“Rome wasn’t built in a day”
Remember the saying “all good things come to those who wait” Well in my opinion it is better to take an holisitc approach. Every aspect of life needs to be looked at to get the results you are after, only then will success come and be maintained. I should know, I have learnt the hard way.
A Personal Message from Martin
On February 14th 2005 I woke up after a night out at a Tsunami fundraising event. I had a terrible headache and dizziness like I’d never before experienced. It wasn’t a hangover: I’d hardly had anything to drink. My GP diagnosed a virus called labyrinthitis. After a lot of suffering and various tests with so called experts, I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I was laid off work for two years and life was pretty crap to be quite frank. Financially, physically, emotionally and mentally I was in a bad place. Looking back on this experience, I now know how hard life can sometimes be, but I didn’t let the illness define me, it just spurred me on to be better.
Discovering Hidden Strengths
During this period, it was also very enlightening and I discovered strengths I didn’t know I had. Looking back this was actually the one of the best moments in my life. Being forced to re-evaluate my life, who I was, what I wanted and how I was going to go about it, it was incredibly revitalising and liberating. Weird I know, but through this experience I was lucky enough to meet people who inspired and educated me and, more importantly, boosted my self-belief so that I was able to find the strength to set goals, reach for them, get back on track with my confidence and aspire to make a success of my life.
The Journey Continues
My motto is ‘life is a marathon not a sprint’ and so I know I’ll get there with stamina and focus. The stress on my body from the virus and chronic fatigue syndrome caused issues with my Adrenal glands and Thyroid which certainly had me struggling with my own personal weight and fitness goals but thankfully through nutritional education and a specialist Doctor I’ve found a way to help address those issues through a tailored diet and exercise programme. I say I am a work in progress. I know how hard it can be when you are not happy with yourself. This why I created Wellbeing4Life.
