I help busy people find ways to integrate intuitive exercising, eating, and other healthy practices to their lifestyles with simple yet effective online coaching.
I also help people who have pain, movement issues, and post rehabilitation patients, with functional personalized physical re-education programs - using a Dynamic Systems Approach.
As humans, we have evolved because of constant change, instability, and movement. These things are essential for our bodies and in our lives to adapt and function properly, and we have done it for so long that our neural system is wired that way.
I understand that engaging in physical activity in this society is difficult, and the reason is that we are trying to adjust our lives to programs and methods that are not realistic, or educational, and on top of that they have no applicability to our lives. They are mostly about 'smokes and mirrors'. When in reality, they should be about helping you be more functional and practical.
In health, just like in anything else, we need to go deep and beyond the surface, to be able to understand and make real changes or adaptations.
There is no magic pill, powerful powder, special mystical diet, non-learning process, or a no-sweat/no-movement way to get there, in fact I don't promote any of these things as they often tend to harm more than help. Health is not just being lean, having big muscles, or not being sick... there is much more to it, and I want to help you understand and implement that in your life, through a functional integrated exercise program, following an interactive instructor-learner process.
My vision is that you internalize and practice good health and wellness in a functional/practical way, with purpose.
Learn to use and control your body before learning to utilize any equipment or accessory. After all, no matter what kind of equipment you have, and how expensive it was, if you don't know how to use your body properly (mobility, strength, coordination, balance, and stability, etc.) you will not be able to properly utilize such equipment, and much less be healthy.
My goal is to educate you, and help you see, understand and internalize what health and fitness are all about so that it becomes a part of who you are and your lifestyle, in a realistic and practical way. This is a process that encompasses not just exercising, but physical education at its core. It takes time, patience, and dedication. There is no quick fix and no magic.
If you are tired of the "miracle systems" out there that are causing more harm than good. If you are tired of yet another diet or yet another workout program - that is hurting you, or that you cannot do because of time, money, or because it is too demanding - allow me to be your personal physical educator. I will re-educate you and teach you how to be self reliant, and how to apply a practical way for your health and fitness.
