Eatfitlive health is owned and operated by partners John and Annette. They are Fremantle locals and have lived in the South Fremantle area for 20 years.
John and Annette are very passionate about health and wellness, and their infectious energy radiates throughout the wellness centre. They both strongly believe that your mind plays a key role in your overall health so meditation forms a big part of their daily practice. And of course, eating healthy and doing regular exercise.
The idea of for eatfitlive health was borne after a magical trip to Bali as this was a life-changing moment in both John and Annette’s health journeys.
I’ve always loved healthy food and doing exercise so it’s never been a chore for me. In fact, I get a real buzz when I do a yoga class or when I try out a new healthy recipe. I’ve always prioritised my health and thankfully I’ve never suffered with any illnesses or had any major health concerns.
When John suggested that we move to Bali, I jumped at the chance as the thought of staying in a hilltop detox retreat seemed like absolute heaven! And it was. I was completely in my element – the whole experience was so eye-opening and it taught me a lot about myself and what areas I need to focus on to maintain good health. My motto is: listen to your body as it knows what you need. I’ve always tried to live by this and it continues to serve me well. If something is not working for me, whether that be my diet at the time or a particular exercise routine that I’m following, then I just change things up. I always keep an open mind and am very often pleasantly surprised by the results as my health nearly always improves!
Every single day, I continue to learn more about health and wellness and I love seeing the results when I try out something new. I’m a firm believer that our soils are depleted of key nutrients so we aren’t always getting the correct amount of vitamins and minerals that we need through the food that we’re eating. It’s for this reason that I supplement my diet with organic superfoods as these contain a powerhouse of vital nutrients that my body absolutely loves! There is a particular range of superfoods that I’ve been using for some time and it’s the best that I’ve ever used. We’ll be introducing this superfood range into eatfitlive health very soon and you’ll be able to pop in and purchase it directly from the wellness centre.
Another passion of mine is Lucia No 3 Light. I was introduced to this light a few years ago by my partner John, who at the time was researching meditation techniques to assist with relaxation. He took me the Kung Fu Centre in Balcatta and this is where I experienced my first session under the light. We were told that this lamp (Lucia No 3) would put us into a deep meditative state and the technology actually had the capability to improve intuition by completely calming the conscious mind often referred to as the monkey mind.
I honestly had no idea what to expect. In fact, I was slightly nervous so I told John that he should go first. He returned 20 minutes later with a big grin across his face, so my worry quickly dissipated and I was suddenly intrigued. It was one of the best experiences of my life and I absolutely loved it! It was complete bliss. Everything around me appeared brighter and more clearly defined, it was as though I was seeing things for the first time ever. The most remarkable thing though, was that all my senses had become heightened – I could see clearer, smell every single scent and even hear a pin drop. That night I slept the best that I had in years and the next day I woke up feeling completely recharged and refreshed.
John and I continued to have regular light sessions as we noticed how much it was benefiting our lives. We seemed less stressed and we began sleeping better, there was something about it that just seemed to calm our minds. Then in 2014, we bit the bullet and decided to invest in one of the Lucia No 3 Light machines and we travelled to Austria (where they are manufactured) to collect it. We had the privilege of meeting Dr. Dirk Proeckl, who is one of the inventors, and he told us all about his journey with the light which was incredible.
I have been offering Lucia No 3 light sessions in both my home and at local yoga studios. The feedback I’ve received has been phenomenal and we are so excited to be able to offer this at eatfitlive health. If you would like to find out more about how the light works or book in for a session, check out the Lucia No 3 Light page.
I’m really looking forward to meeting you at the wellness centre and I hope you enjoy all the great classes, therapies and workshops that we have on offer!
