FIND18K –  A GLOBAL COMMUINITY INITIATIVE

The FIND18K was created by Sports Medicine Director Ian Wee of the Perth Integrated Health Group of Companies in direct response to prolific rise in the level of adult and children obesity and associated cardiovascular and neuromuscular conditions seen in the community.

The FIND18K program does not detract from other initiatives that encourage people to exercise and keep fit.  In fact it compliments ALL sports and ALL forms of physical activity but providing the appropriate guidance and direction in sports medicine by which people in the community can be motivated and encouraged to make a change and be physically active – FOR A REASON.

FIND18K is about finding 18000 steps each day of your life to help with your physical and mental health.  The calculated average of 3000 or 3K steps that office workers take is the direct reason why their health is affected.  Finding 10 000 steps or 10K steps is ALSO the barest minimum and for almost everyone – insufficient to see any significant changes in their fitness and health.

FIND18K is a progressive method to achieve 18 000 steps and more and the inherent benefits associated with this are vast.

Consider the following benefits espoused by the World Health Organisation (WHO) which has stated categorically in 2017 that:

Promoting physical activity Numerous health benefits are associated with regular physical activity and exercise. Scientific literature shows that adults and older adults benefit the most from regular physical activity. Benefits include:

  • lowering their risk of early death;
  • coronary heart disease;
  • stroke
  • high blood pressure;
  • adverse blood lipid profile;
  • type 2 diabetes;
  • metabolic syndrome;
  • risk of colon and breast cancer;
  • weight gain;
  • improving cardiorespiratory and muscular fitness;
  • preventing falls;
  • reducing depression;
  • having better cognitive function

WHO recommends that physical activity for health is the primary prevention of noncommunicable diseases.

If we already know that increased physical activity can direct lead to the decrease in a whole amount of clinical and sports medicine conditions such as diabetes, cardiac conditions, respiratory, joint and muscular problems as well as encourage psychosocial wellness and brain development – why is it NOT being encouraged by all health professionals globally?

While the reasons might be varied – what we do know is that for EVERY additional step that you take – you are making a change for your future and that of your families and the next generation.

Imagine being the reason for the reduction in health care costs in your family and in the community? Imagine if we kept fit and actually helped private health insurance companies REDUCE their premiums due to decrease in claims? Imagine the support that we each have with the Medicare system instead of trying to crave out more from what is already a dwindled and squandered source of public health support over the decades?

The time is now and if you follow the FIND18K program you will be guided each and every week over the years about ways and means that you can make a difference your health and well being and that of people around you.

Sign up for what would be the most economical investment in your health in your lifetime and follow the trend.

The proper embrace of wearable apps, smartwatches and devices will all come to be in a positive way with FIND18K.

Choose between one of these categories to be part of our global health support and SPREAD THE NEWS.
