Various studies have shown that a healthier lifestyle leads to a lower personal carbon footprint. Mother Nature Network cites five specific ways in which a person’s lifestyle choices and fitness can affect the environment and consumption of natural resources.
There are many options available for fitness instruction and nutritional counseling. CarbonFree® Business Partner BodyWorks Lifestyle, with five locations in the greater Orange County and Los Angeles area, provides fitness plans and environmental leadership to its clients and to the fitness industry. BodyWorks Lifestyle is not just about fitness, it’s about taking control—of your weight, your stress levels, your nutrition, your choices and your health, to reach your goals for overall wellness and personal training while reducing your carbon footprint and negative impact on the environment.
BodyWorks Lifestyle has chosen to take a leadership position in the fitness and healthy living industry by offsetting its annual operational emissions, supporting Carbonfund.org’s forestry projects around the world. They also donate 1% of their annual profits back to the planet and use environmentally friendly household cleaning products at their facility.
"We chose to partner with Cabonfund.org because we believed that, as a company, if we were to lead by example and help offset our carbon footprint, we could encourage our clients and business partners to do the same,” explains Huw Lloyd Davies, Founder of BodyWorks Lifestyle and a life-long fitness and outdoor enthusiast. “We believe that we all need to do our part to bring about sustainable change."
BodyWorks Lifestyle fitness coaches promote nutrition supplements and organic foods, environmentally renewable clothing suppliers, and run seminars on home energy efficiency for their clients. They also offer a wide range of outdoor fitness events to help clients develop their commitment to a more active lifestyle while learning what they can do to protect the natural resources in their community.
If your New Year’s resolutions include a renewed commitment to a healthy lifestyle, and a lower personal carbon footprint, start your exercise regime today, “green” your eating habits, and consider offsetting your annual work commuting or vehicle mileage through Carbonfund.org.
