Changing the World, One Day at a Time
Fitness is something that concerns us all. It impacts on our quality of life, our ability to make a living and in the way we view ourselves and our place in the world. Yet fitness, traditionally, has been tied up into paid services, expensive gym membership fees, the buying of equipment and expensive fitness accessories. It became part of the glossy lifestyle of a relatively small percentage of people, when in reality it should be part of the everyday life of each of us.
We all want to be fitter, stronger and have a better quality of life but very few of us can afford it.
If you want change, you have to be that change. That’s why we set up the NR project. +Google+
has been instrumental to getting the project from a simple idea to the stage it is at now. Every response, every share here made it feel possible that such an idea would and will work in the long run. The fundamental concept behind it is that we all have the right to feel comfortable in our own body, in charge of it and in control of our lives.
Today we design blueprints one can easily follow without spending any money in the comfort of their home without any equipment having limited amount of time. Through the neilarey.com
resource everyone with no exception has access to high quality training plans, individual visual easy-to-follow workouts, healthy recipes that don’t break the bank, budget food choices, nutritional advice and motivational articles. Because everything is bodyweight-training based, you don’t need expensive equipment, or indeed a gym. Because each workout is designed to be compact, you don’t need a lot of space or a lot of time.
A year later we have a small team of volunteers responsible for the resource and two workout workshops which help us test new routines, challenges and programs before they are released. We passionately believe in what we do to the point that we all put in more hours into the project and the workouts than the donations we receive could cover. Yet, staying true to our message we run no ads, accept no gifts or sponsorships. The project is supported and continues running on user donation alone.
We maintain high quality in our output, run volunteer workshops locally and globally and get to start each day with the feeling that what we do truly helps make a difference in someone’s life. What we have built is perhaps just a drop in the ocean but we believe it counts.
Thank you for being here, thank you for your support and for making it all happen. Happy Holidays!
