OUR COACHING APPROACH

MOVEMENT 

Tried hard-core, sweat-till-you-drop workouts, but given up shortly after starting?  I promote daily movement over exercise alone. But we’ll explore, and build into your lifestyle, the best workout for your needs and goals. And we’ll look for the most efficient and effective ways to do this. Our approach is to help you find activities you love so that you repeat them freely. 

CHOOSE THE BODY YOU WANT

Is it a toned and strong body? Or is it a slim one with low muscle mass? Your answer to these questions will determine your programme approach. So, be sure to give your goal some thought before spending time and energy on it. Either way, your goal should easily fit your lifestyle now, and into the future.  

OUR APPROACH TO TECHNIQUE

I think exercise should mimic everyday activity. Functional strength will help you handle daily movement requirements. Do we ever keep our body stock still while using a limb in isolation? Even opening a jar needs more than just arm or hand muscles. Whether gardening, dancing, or vacuuming, be stronger and better equipped to enjoy life.

OUR APPROACH TO FUNCTIONALITY

Training with good form is the best way to avoid injuries. It also ensures the greatest outcome in every exercise. And it results in a strong “engine” – a fully engaged and stable core and trunk. Once this engine has developed power, you can focus on your ‘chassis’ – the limbs. No sleek, sexy sports car ever existed without a potent engine!

NOURISHMENT

Nourishment is all you expose your body to on a regular basis. These things, in turn, impact the expression of your state of health. Nourishment starts with your food and eating habits. But we go further to include sleep issues, grounding, sunlight and pollutants. We’ll cover electromagnetic radiation too. Our approach will assess your areas of vulnerability. Furthermore, it will steer you on a healthier route.

THE ASSESSMENT

An intensive questionnaire that tests your various bodily systems. The health of your gut, liver, thyroid, adrenals, hormones are assessed. Also, mood, kidneys, immunity, central nervous system and more are covered. The results are inputted into a graph for visual insight. This indicates low, moderate or high scores for each system. These scores give clues about what’s preventing weight loss or health gains. Further, a diet assessment will show if your food intake is blocking your goals. 

THE PROCESS

There are no diets involved in our approach! Sure, we can use tools to get you losing fat and gaining health fairly quickly. But all within the context of eating “healthfully” most of the time. (We purposefully include “some-of-the-time” foods too). To help you succeed with your physical goals we have a long list of tools. Things like intermittent fasting,  bespoke nutrition, and addressing your health graph. Also, specific activities, and promoting certain fat stores can all help.

MINDSET

Ever yo-yo dieted? Joined a gym and left after just a few visits? Tried to feel better about your body, but failed? You’ll learn to accept that your daily thoughts can support or sabotage your health/weight. Taking care of yourself – your health and wellbeing – isn’t a selfish act. It’s a way of ensuring you’re the healthiest, happiest version of you. This is an important approach for yourself and your loved ones.

OUR APPROACH TO HABITS

Repetition is key to maintaining positive habits. Our brains create networks of neurons that support ways of thinking (and doing). So we need to create fresh networks that support new thinking/doing. This will help us change over the long term. But it takes time, patience and energy to ensure that the new habits stick.

Stress often leads to negative habits. Therefore, it’s useful to be aware of your normal responses and what triggers them. I’ll help you create leverage to maintain a degree of control over stress. Having a sense of control offers the least damaging reaction to stress. This is vital for good health over the long term. We’ll create chances to ease up the pressure you’re experiencing. This approach makes space for new and positive habits, even if just relaxation.

OUR APPROACH TO CHANGE

Many people believe they’re “lazy” when it comes to making key life changes. But this isn’t actually true. Your level of incentive for a task relates to the barriers your subconscious mind has put up. These barriers obviously block success. We’ll unpack them to facilitate better motivation into the future.

Once you know what healthy habits you’d like to bring in, we’ll focus on practicing. Think about when you first learnt to ride a bike. You set the basics into a pattern which your body followed in time without real thought. In essence, it created a shortcut to the action. We all set up shortcuts in our subconscious minds. This allows our brains to process data without all other tasks ceasing. To change negative shortcuts our brain needs to learn new ways of responding.
