About Janet Omstead

🌟 I am on a mission to reignite peoples passion for PLAY so that they can fight chronic disease while improving their quality of life as they age.

👉When we reframe exercise as PLAY for our physical and mental wellness, the whole world can become our playground.

If you aren’t a ‘fad diet’ person,

If you aren’t a ‘gym’ person,

If you aren’t a ‘traditional workout’ person,

Then I’m your person.

💡 How can I help you?

With over 20 years of experience in the fitness and health industry, I have seen what works for people and what doesn’t.

The secret to long-term progress and lasting results is combining habit-based change behaviour psychology with customized plans that get you moving.

That doesn’t sound very easy, but in a nutshell, it’s:

👉 Small habit tweaks + FUN activities that don’t suck

This is the philosophy behind how I teach all my clients and corporate groups. And they LOVE it. But more than that, they get RESULTS.

Reframing exercise as PLAY

By |April 23rd, 2021|Categories: Interviews, Play for Life|Comments Off on Reframing exercise as PLAY

What if we reframed 'exercise' as we know it? Reframed it so that anyone, regardless of confidence, fitness level, or social status, can do?  Exercise as PLAY. No, this isn't me trying to disguise a word to use a clever marketing ploy. And it's not about having washboard abs or being on the cover of a magazine. It's about taking control of your life so you can live fully.
