“We are the sum total of our experiences…” “It takes several parts to make up the whole…” “The thigh bone connected to the knee bone, the knee bone connected to the ankle bone…”
We’ve all heard these catch phrases from time to time throughout our lives. These words and statements convey a message stating although component or a part of something may exist, its greater purpose is to its co-existence and connection to the whole.
Many have inquired what exactly is a “Holistic Personal Trainer” and how does that differ from a Personal Trainer?
Exercise science is a remarkable branch of knowledge concerning the study of human movement and the physiological responses to those movements.
However, its range of motion (no pun intended) is limited to its scope of practice concerning the physical and physiological aspects of said science. Holistic science incorporates all components of human living. Mental, Physical, Physiological and the Spiritual.
As a practicing Christian, my faith both fuels and guides my desired goals and aspirations for a healthy living lifestyle.
As a HPT, I’m not in the business to preach to anyone, but simply to encourage a regimen of proper rest, proper nutrition and proper exercise that also incorporates a clients spiritual belief system.
I have found that those who do so lead a richer and more fulfilling experience of healthy living in the awareness that GOD is not only the Creator of their temple, but is instrumental in its physical longevity, endowed healing, healthy development and subsequent rewards.
The Bible says: “For bodily exercise has some value, but godliness has value in all things, having the promise of the life which is now, and of that which is to come 1 Timothy 4:8…”
This is why I believe in “(Holistic) Fitness For Life…”
