3 Dimensions of Health

3 Dimensions of Health

There are 2 paths. The path I am looking to show you is one that embodies all of you, values your health and success. The path I have to show you knows growth, success, health and vision are matched and elevated in the heart, mind and body through your thoughts, feelings, emotions and presence.

Your True Spirit of Health

It’s interesting that you may look for a diagnosis to prove your feelings, emotions and health. A label that gives you permission to feel the way you feel. I always go back to the story of one of the greatest athletes, Wilma Rudolph. Dr’s told 

NEXT LEVEL OF HEALTH

NEXT LEVEL OF HEALTH

These are actually exciting times for health, fitness and lifestyle. While the relevance and importance of fitness and clean nutrition is at the forefront for health, this has been a trait and essential for high performance leaders. By high performance leaders I am referring those who take responsibility, value integrity and show up in passion, presence, growth and grounded. High Performance leaders often have a background in athletics/sports at an elite level, high rank in the military,

Let me tell you why. Because to be of a high-level discipline, concentration, focus, structure and emotional intelligence is required. Forging ahead is not for the faint of heart, won’t tolerate victim mentality and accepts surrender as a rite of passage with tenacity, fortitude and dignity.

This means the fun of just trying or getting in your steps or somedays you feel like it and somedays you don’t is not to the next level of health. What it is, is building your foundation- habits, discipline, structure and commitment.

There is seriousness in your next level of health as you take responsibility.

You decide you know your worth, your abilities and you choose your goals, and faith over maybes and fears.

Responsible is response able. Your next level of health will look at your Mitochondria. Your next level of health will look at autophagy. And your next level of health will look at a balance of hormones.

We go deep, rooted, grounded and vision focused with vigor. Afterall health is synonymous with vitality.

This in itself shifts your mindset and recognition of food, fitness and lifestyle. Vitality comes through choices, finding presence and peace. Being focused on food, eating, when to exercise again is foundational. Gaining autonomy in nutrition and fitness keeps you pointing your radar to new heights. Next Level.

What I love to teach is the expectation of concentration. Concentration keeps you in the moment and open. This flow state brings more awareness, heightened feeling and senses and a place of personal power.

The power of this process and experience is no negotiating with yourself. You do. You are aware in the body out of the mind and in the spirit.

Are you ready to take your health to the Next Level? Do you want to accelerate your current foundational fitness and nutrition or are you ready to begin a foundational program?

Fitness as a Lifestyle

Fitness as a Lifestyle

This may seem odd to mention or talk about. A majority of people use fitness in relationship to eating, food and calories. Lifestyle honors fitness in all areas of health and well-being. Lifestyle is foundational, from the way you live, things you value, how you 

The Power of Training

The Power of Training

Often we look at training as individual and specific, such as weight training, cardio, cycling, yoga etc. What I can tell you from experience is…it’s the wrong way to look at training for results.

Your body is designed to work efficiently and effectively in movement. This means training for Performance. Performance wants you and your body to be tapped into how you’re moving, the effort you’re feeling and the depth you are connecting. To get into your body during fitness you must train your brain to work with you, be present and let go of hard or easy. What are you feeling? How much deeper can you go?

The answer to your weight loss or body shape goals isn’t in cardio. It is in muscle building, interval training, stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system and activating your stabilizing system.

You see those deep fibers help you to move and function better, which produce a response that you are working effectively without stress from the fight or flight sympathetic system which is your body in stress overload. That state of being does more harm than good. In other words, positive effects don’t stem from there and become a cycle and circle of trying to lose weight and be healthy.

Good training comes from understanding how to balance your body and find the sweet spot for your training. Posture, alignment are impacted tremendously with good smart training. Long term this type of functional training helps in every way for you to age gracefully and build up a strong foundation.

We know how important nutrition and clean foods are for your body weight as well. Again thats looking at Optimal Performance over getting into what’s good, what’s bad- it focuses on how does your body response, get you the best results and be your best. Optimal Performance looks at nutrition and fitness from this perspective and lens.

This path is way more enjoyable, more coherent, and more aligned with you training you…not for everyone else’s beliefs.

If you’re ready to take your health, fitness, weight loss, energy goals serious and to the next level, you know invest to get results in order then I have the program for you. Reach out and schedule your Discovery Call 📞.

Mindset: The New Strength Training

Mindset: The New Strength Training

Mindset looks at your thoughts, feelings and beliefs, Your thoughts are electric sending out a signal. Your feelings are magnetic, what you are feeling is drawing in to you experiences- good and bad. And your Beliefs control, dictate, oversee what you think and how/what you feel.

Healthy Habits that Boost Happiness.

Healthy Habits that Boost Happiness.

If you know taking better care of your health is important to you the habits you build upon are essential. Non-negotiable to hold you powerful in the changes.

Optimal Performance; The Greatest of All Time.

Optimal Performance; The Greatest of All Time.

The Greatest of All Time.  Optimal Performance brings the best of people. Consistency plus a plan which values work, recovery, growth and release.  Key factors for people to perform at such high levels are their programs and habits.  

You can take your performance in health to the next level through a clean eating plan with proper nutrient support, mindset and lifestyle. It’s structured with a clear path and plan. 

To be 43 years old and playing in peak performance shows what’s possible for any age with a plan that supports you physically mentally and emotionally.   Trust me, there’s a lot which goes into it, beyond the field.

Optimal Performance takes the inner workings of you and organizes and structures your health, nutrition, fitness, mindset and lifestyle. This is not a gym, or personal training. A gym is a place you pay to rent and a personal trainer gives you exercises, spots and counts. A coach sees your potential, guides and coaches you to excellence.  Their philosophy and skills bring more to you than just the physical.

When you decide your health and performance is a priority, take the steps to get involved in the right programs. You’re going to need to structure your day. You’ll need the right support systems. You’ll need to know where your fine line is….between anabolic and catabolic (that’s building and breakdown). With too much you’ll break down more than you’re building or stagnate your progress.

Your health and well-being, your performance is more feelings, emotions and mindset. Being present in your workouts. Being present in your mindset. Plus, your body’s function and production of hormones and neurotransmitters.  

Are you willing to look at your overall health and well-being to uplevel, to grow?

Can you see the potential and possibilities you have for yourself?

How much productivity and focus will a coach bring to your career as an athlete or entrepreneur to organize and structure your health, nutrition and lifestyle?

Here are 3 steps to focus on your health today;

  1. Start your day with movement.  Fitness, from weight training, yoga, running, cycling, are great ways to start your day with a practice and healthy habits.
  1. Include mindset. Keep your head clean, clear and focused on your vision and goals. This comes from affirmations, reading, writing, visualization, and practicing in your new level of focus and who you are becoming. 
  1. Clean eating and vitamins. Foods rich in antioxidants, minerals and vitamins.  Eating a plate of colorful foods, vitamins to support oxidative stress, enzymes to digest foods, probiotics to keep up with good bacteria, Zinc for health, and a personalized  vitamin protocol for your own health.

Optimal Performance keeps you working at your potential and allows you to grow and gain strength internally and externally.  You’re never to old, it’s never to late.
