Welcome to Gohealthybody.com.  My name is Allen Shourds and I am the founder and CEO of Go Healthy Body Enterprises.  I am a Registered Nurse, a Certified Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor, Health Coach and Fitness Nutrition Specialist. I believe everyone has a right to have a healthy body.  One’s overall health is very important.

There are five categories of overall health.  They are in order:

  1. Physical health
  2. Psychological, mental and emotional health
  3. Spiritual health
  4. Interpersonal– friends, family, relationships and nature
  5. Financial health

This website will focus on physical health– I may also address categories 2 to 5 on a limited basis.

I have alot to offer on gohealthybody.com.  Personal Training,

Going Healthy

Going healthy is like cooking a gourmet dish.  It involves taking care of each of the eleven systems individually and then integrating them as a whole so that you are able to have a healthy body.  Going healthy involves discarding things that don’t belong,  such as unhealthy addictions,  sedentary life style, and any unhealthy  beliefs.  It then involves replacing the things that you just discarded with healthy habits  such as involvement in sports and music, proper fluid intake, proper diet, (Go Healthy Body Enterprises recommends  https://www.choosemyplate.gov,   for proper  dietary protocol),  proper exercise and also maintaining safety protocol at all times.  It also involves living a disciplined life.
