Welcome to my website – Exercise Fitness & Health

It is designed to tell you about all the health benefits of taking regular physical exercise.

Being physically active is the most effective way of ensuring a long, healthy and disease free life. At the same time it gives a great sense of wellbeing. It is far more effective than anything that the pharmaceutical industry can throw at you, far better than anything your doctor can prescribe.

Here are two quotes which express this far more eloquently that I can:


  1. “If we had a drug in our therapeutic armamentarium that conferred all the benefits of regular exercise it would be the single best treatment for preventing disease and improving overall health and life expectancy”. O’Keefe JH et al 2013
  2. “Better to hunt in fields, for health unbought,
    Than fee the doctor for a nauseous draught,
    The wise, for cure, on exercise depend;
    God never made his work for man to mend.”
    John Dryden 1700

On this website I will be telling you all about the latest evidence for the benefits of exercise as it becomes available. I will discuss how new research fits in with what we already know and I will try to answer any questions you may have. My blog will be interactive so that you can respond to what I say – to agree, to disagree, to add your own perspective.

I am delighted to announce that my book ‘Get Off The Couch Before It’s Too Late’ has been published and is available for you to buy. Would you like a copy? Send me a message to arrange your very own signed version!

This is an interactive blog and I welcome responses from my readers. Please comment on what I say.  All relevant responses will be published on the site and I hope may encourage further debate.
