Somewhere along the way, we lost our connection to our primal human nature, we became “civilized”. Diseases of modernity – diabetes, obesity, cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, ADHD – are rising at an alarming rate. Stress and mental health disorders are rampant among the population. People have lost the capacity to perform basic human feats – Run, Jump, Squat, Climb, Crawl, Fight. Clearly something is wrong with our current path! The good news is that the vast majority of these modern problems are lifestyle related and can be improved and corrected! But where do we start?
Our lives are inundated with experts from all fields, telling us we need adopt this diet or that exercise. Too often they become dogmatic in their views and forget to address the entirety of the human organism. This is where my system broadens the spectrum and seeks to combine all aspects of well-being to attain our natural human performance and thrive in the modern world.
The Primal Way seeks to combine the latest in modern science, evolutionary biology, ancestral health and clinically effective modalities to help every individual through an integrative and functional process. Everyone is not created equal and what works for 1 person may not work for another. This is where many health coaches go wrong; applying the same templates to all clients. Using the 4 pillars of health: Sleep, Stress, Nutrition, Exercise – along with a proper set of individualized progressions – I strive to help every individual reach their maximum potential and become the best version of themselves.
Health and Wellness is not just about going to the gym and following a specific diet, being healthy encompasses a total lifestyle design, a change in your mindset towards living the most optimal life possible. Being fit means much more than how much you lift or if you have a 6 pack – its about being able to play with your kids and your grandkids well into old age, about being confident and independent, young or old, about being able to do what you want in life without worrying if you’re capable or not. Whether you’re 16 or 60, you should always be striving to be the best version of yourself.
Today people live longer than ever in history, but that quality of life has gone down drastically. By the time the average person hits 50 or 60, they are already diagnosed with cardiovascular disease, heart disease, diabetes, cognitive decline, and the list goes on. Let alone the fact that they can no longer confidently take care of daily tasks due to a loss in strength, bone mass or mental function. It doesn’t have to be that way! Maintaining quality of life is what being healthy and fit is all about. Take control of your life and stop being a bystander, coasting through a suboptimal life.
