Seminar: Health for Journalists

Health for Journalists

The Freelance Division, CIoJ, will present an Interactive Seminar at HO on 11 July, 2014

Our health and fitness expert, Chris Field, will discuss the social implications of health, and the importance of looking after ourselves, before he opens the floor to questions.

Main Presentation

The seminar will include various aspects of nutrition and practical fitness, from simply walking upstairs to much bigger challenges. However, the emphasis will be on finding a “way of life”that works for you. You are welcome to ask about topics like metabolism and disease; nutrition v. supplements; finding the right routine; the blood sugar cycle, food groups, and the influence of advertising on both children and adults, to name just a few.

 Chris Field 

Father, Personal Trainer, Nutritional Advisor, Corporate Health Consultant.

“As an advisor to Barclays, BMW, pharmaceutical groups and a variety of retail groups, I have built an understanding of the need for relevant fitness training for the professional.”

Chris cut his teeth with military applicants, uniformed services and the “lose weight, tone- up” brigade, as well as appearing on television to help those in need of extreme weight loss. He found that the best results were achieved through taking advantage of natural movements and training for life situations.

He says, “Life is stressful enough without having to worry about missing opportunities because you didn’t keep moving.”

Health for Journalists will run for about five hours, starting at 11am on 11 July. There will be a light, healthy lunch for those who attend and a practical hand-out at the end of the day.

A one-off event, this is open to all members of the media. Cost: £35 for CIoJ members, and £50 for non-Institute members. To ensure your questions are covered, send them in advance to:
