INTEGRATIVE FITNESS 2.0

TRUE FITNESS IS ACHIEVED THROUGH FUNCTIONAL INTEGRATION OF THE MIND & BODY

Similar to the foundational principles of Integrative Medicine, the concept of Integrative Fitness is based on the core belief that there single approach or ideology that will yield optimal health & performance benefits for all individuals, but rather a strategic combination of various validated methods that incorporate the mind, gut & physical body.

Whether the client is an elite athlete seeking optimal performance or an average end user wanting to lose weight or improve overall health, all users want to achieve adaptation (gains) in the safest & most efficient manner possible- but tend to ignore the master control switch: the nervous systems. Individuals can train properly, but if they are chronically stressed, not adequately sleeping/recovering or maintain poor gut health, their rate of adaptation will always be suboptimal. True health & performance optimization therefore requires an integrative approach.

Integrative Fitness is a dynamic system that includes synergistic integration of various validated approaches including:

  • Functional Strength & Conditioning
  • Cellular Health
  • Gut Health
  • Overall Nervous System Function/Balance
  • Mindfulness & Breathing Techniques
  • General Physical Activity
  • Sleep & Stress Management
  • Recovery
  • Hydration, Nutrition & Supplementation
  • Body Composition Management
  • & MUCH MORE

FITNESS EVOLVED

Over the past several decades, we have seen a rapid change in health prioritization. Users are sacrificing true health & performance to achieve a superficial appearance of fitness or chasing an arbitrary number on a scale that does not accurately reflect health or progress during lifestyle change.

From a biological perspective, fitness is defined as an organisms ability to adapt, thrive and ultimately reproduce in an environment. The modern definition has evolved to rely almost entirely on superficial metrics including a thin waistline and large muscles (functional or non-) ignoring factors that may impact biological fitness including chronic pain or mental health.

Because users are defining fitness incorrectly, they are utilizing the wrong metrics to measure it leading to injuries, suboptimal outcomes and ultimately attrition. Fitness Evolved is based on an individual’s ability to optimally perform their specific function:

  • From a competitive athletic perspective, this relates to the ability to perform sport & position-specific role with optimal efficacy, minimizing the occurrence of preventable injuries and secondary missed games/opportunities, optimize career longevity and post-career health.
  • For the average individual, this relates to optimizing work productivity, having adequate energy to perform daily tasks such as playing with your children, and living a long, healthy & pain-free life.
