Testimonial: Julia’s Fitness Journey with EarthFIT
“Before EarthFIT, my life was mostly just kind of hanging around the house, not a lot of activity certainly wasn’t very strong. Now after EarthFIT, especially now that I’ve been coming five days a week, it’s so much different. I sleep so much better. I have so much more energy during the day. I’m so much stronger.
I remember when I first started, I couldn’t do anything really at my first initial assessment, doing lunges was hard and now I feel like it’s, I’m so much better at doing everything. I have so much more energy now, I’m much stronger. I remember when I first started, it was a struggle for me to be doing things with like 10 pound dumbbells. So, I’m just so much more able to move around and so much stronger and have definitely built some muscle mass. I’ve been to every other kind of gym that there is and being in a small group setting is so great because you not only get what one-on-one coaching from you guys, which is awesome, but there’s also other people to kind of help you along the way with both how to do things and just some camaraderie.
I think a lot of people see videos on Facebook to get their initial taste of what EarthFIT might be like and so seeing so many positive results, I think makes anyone skeptical about anything, but actually coming into the gym and seeing that as real and that all of the coaches put in so much work to everybody and it’s so individualized, all of that skepticism just floats away the first class that you have.
I would recommend EarthFIT to anyone who’s interested in doing any kind of movement. I would give them my phone number. Even if you feel like you can’t do anything right now, and you mostly just hang out on the couch, you guys are so good at taking people from absolutely nothing to wherever it is that they want to be. The hardest part of getting over it, I think is just coming in the door the first time meeting you guys, everybody is so easygoing and so truly interested in helping people, which is hard to find.” –Julia
People see trainers doing box jumps or see or hear about their friend doing box jumps at another gym and ask, “Can we do box jumps? They Look fun”
In this video you will find out if box jump and plyometrics are right for you.
“Hey! So should you do box jumps in your workouts? Yes or no? Well this video is specific to help you find out the answer to that… watch this video and at the end I’m going to have you do a test to determine if you should be doing not only box jumps but plyometrics and I’m going to get into the science of what a plyometrics is so if you are doing it, It will help you reduce your injury and increase your performance. The first thing we want to talk about is what the endgoal is because every single program should just be base on working backwards from what the end goal is.
In our training facility one of our missions is to help working professionals get into optimal health and fitness in the safest, fastest and most effective way based on efficiency, burn fat and gain lean muscle. Now, safety is one of our number 1 things. When you get into plyometric movements, the risk goes up and the reward for what our goal is goes down a little bit. There’s better ways to optimise that type of training to get the reward. There’s progressions of plyometrics so I’ll demonstrate some of those shortly as well and you can test yourself out to see if you are ready to do even those basic movements.
First thing, you gotta ask yourself is “Do I move correctly?” when I do something as simple as a squat or a pushup. If you are not moving correctly then you are opening your chances for injury and if you are not absorbing the force it’s going to end up in your joints and that is where deterioration comes down. So the science, there’s 3 phases to a plyometrics – the eccentric downward, the amortisation phase which is the in between (the eccentric and concentric) and then the concentric. So that would be for box jump. You go down, and then up and then you jump on to the box and when we go down we are actually tapping into an elasticity into our muscles so it stretches the muscles and the amortisation phase is in between the concentric phase which is the upward motion and for you to tap in to the stretch shortening cycle of the muscle which is where the elastic energy is created on the downward motion and then on the upward motion, in between there’s a very small amount of time and it’s a fraction of a second and if you miss that fraction, it’s no longer a plyometric, right? because you are not tapping into that elastic energy in the muscles.
What is your goal? Are you an athlete? So athletes really benefit from this so the risk is worth the reward because they are going to get more explosiveness, they’re going to jump higher, they’re going to be able to push faster if they’re playing football and they’re a lineman, they’re going to be able to push harder so it’s very very powerful exercises in training for athletes. Now if you are not an athlete… Is it going to be extremely beneficial for you? Well, that’s the question that you need to ask yourself so now we are going to go out the floor (please watch the video) Can you tap into that stretch-shortening cycle, can you just jump and land correctly right? Because plyometrics are meant to be seen and not heard. What you will see is people jump and boom! All that force gets dissipated into the joints so if I don’t land nice and soft then all that force creates heat in the joints and your are now wearing down the joints rather than strengthening the muscles in the plyometric exercise so you’ll see if I go down and up and jump and land nice and soft, that is how you want to land, you want to absorb the force. If you can’t do that and you can’t do a few reps of that most likely you should not be doing box jumps because this is the very basic. I’m just jumping up and down.
If you want to test yourself right now and again with every exercise especially plyometrics you want to be fully warmed up so you do warm up before this is can you do:
5 squats with 60% of your body weight within 5 seconds. Alright, so you are calculating out your bodyweight, you are putting 60% of that on you and then doing 5 squats really fast within 5 seconds. Again if you don’t have a proper form on the squat, don’t attempt that.
And then the other one is can you do 5 clap push ups in a row. Can you do 5 clap push up. If you can’t then you should not be attempting plyometrics. You need to regress back and start with basic strength and conditioning and so we’re talking about endurance training, strength training, hypertrophy or hypertrophy then strength and then power plyometrics and that takes phases of training to get somebody there.
So, I hope you found this helpful. If you have any comments or question, go ahead and leave them below.”
“I would highly highly highly recommend this program to anyone. Like I said, I’ve tried so many programs in a lot of different cities, most recently Boston, and I don’t think anybody has achieved what they have achieved here and what EarthFIT has achieved here in Beaufort, South Carolina so I feel like we’re really fortunate to have this kind of program here and I highly recommend you try it.
It’s quick, it’s efficient, it’s safe, and you’ll feel so incredibly good at the end of it. You feel amazing and you see the results and you… it’s not only physically seeing the results, but definitely mentally as well. You just feel better all over and again I highly recommend it.
Before I came to EarthFIT, I had tried a number of different gyms over the past 30 years, a lot of different programs and I’d love to mix it up. I did the crossfit thing, I felt strong but ended up hurting myself pretty significantly and knew I couldn’t go back to that but I had trouble finding a program that had great intensity that I could have fun with and still see a lot of results. You see results immediately to your body. I love to come here, you’re walking into a friendly environment, everybody knows your name, you get a nice greeting. It’s clean, it’s organized, it’s almost personal training and an environment where you can work of one another’s energy and push one another in the class. It’s personal training, because the trainers they know what you’re capable of as an individual, when to push you, when not to push you, they’re constantly on you for your form and you know, keeping you motivated.
I haven’t experienced a program that’s so quick, efficient, fun and you felt like you weren’t going to get hurt because that’s always a fear I think with anybody doing intense workouts and trying to change the body that you know fear of injury and here I really believe the trainers are so knowledgeable and they clearly have the great deal of experience and have gone through an intense training program themselves to understand exactly how to make this program as amazing as it is.”
“Hey! What’s going on? It’s Ian Hart here with EarthFIT Training and I get asked often why is our training different, how come we get better results in training, etc.. And so, before you can get into that I explain to people how training works in a broad sense, in a general sense. I’m going to explain to you in a minute here a supercompensation model that will help you understand how you get results in training in a very basic, and simplistic way. And so let’s get into it…
When someone comes in for an assessment I test their base level of fitness and let’s say this is over a week. And so when someone comes in and they’re training I test their base level of fitness, we’re seeing where they’re currently at, at their fitness level. Everybody’s at different fitness levels and when I train them typically what happens, and this is what is supposed to happen, is they fatigue the body, they lose ATP and glycogen – that’s the energy in the muscle in the body, their nervous system gets fatigue, their immune system gets fatigue. So as they’re training, we’re fatiguing the body. And the changes don’t occur to the body until they go home, they eat, they sleep, they drink water, they recover and what happens is the body recovers at a better state, and the body has amazing ability to adapt to whatever stress you are putting on it and it recovers in the instance that the stress might occur so it’s comparing for the next time that that might occur and that’s what is called supercompensation. And you have to train in this period in a progressive scientific way again to see your base level improved, and that’s why a minimum of 2x a week in a progressive scientific way is needed to see your base level improve. And when I’m talking about a progressive, scientific way, I’m talking about if you ran one day a week and you swam one day a week you wouldn’t get better at either. You have to run at least 2x a week.
The real scientific results and studies show that 3x a week is really necessary to improve your cardiovascular. But let’s say it was 2x a week where you ran a mile, the second time that week you either have to run the mile faster to get results or you have to run a little bit longer distance, right? or maybe let’s say you run in a slight incline. There’s got to be some variable change and that’s a progression. So that’s 2x a week. 3x a week you see about 30% more results than 2 x a week, 4x a week we see about 25% more than 3x a week and then if you train too hard, too much, too often in the long term typically what happens is we see overtraining and that is a detriment to your training as well. We don’t want that to happen.
And so with our training what we did is we took all the years of knowledge and combine, we took the best of what we saw and combine in one training – strength, endurance, cardio, flexibility, mobility, stability. It has strength, conditioning and those mobility aspects of a training which helps people to get results in the safest, fastest, and most effective way all backed by science so this gives you an insight as to how training works and there you have it. I hope this is helpful. Have a great day! Ian Hart from EarthFIT Training.”
Tom went from walking with a CANE to SWINGING a 62lb kettle bell and doing 135lb deadlift.
He lost 35 lbs and 5 inches on his waist. You can read his testimonial below.
“I never thought I’d be racing, auto racing again and I know Ian promised me that we’ll see where we can go and we’ll get you better than you were. I didn’t know I would get that far, and people are amazed. I’ve got friends from before I had all the surgeries and they’re just amazed that I’m now able to do all that.
I talk to people; I would definitely recommend no matter where they are because if you’re not happy with where you are you’ve got nothing to lose, and the main thing is you just got to don’t give up, you just got to try.
Well, before EarthFIT, I’ve gone through a number of operations, knees and I had some back issues. So, what I do because of the back issues, and even after going through therapy, I was no longer able to work on cars. I had to give up auto racing which I really like, and I like walking. I couldn’t walk more than about a quarter of a mile. Before, I used a cane. In fact, I had to use a cane a lot at work for my knees. So I went to Ian in March of 2013 and told him, “well, I’ll try anything,” and we just started with the basic stretches. I wasn’t really able to lift weights at that point and now at this point I’ve been racing cars for the last 2 years, I can work on cars, I can also, you know, lift up wheels and tires, I can do 135lbs on the deadlift. I’ve gone from my 38 waist to a 33 waist, and I’ve gone from a 207 lbs to a 172 lbs and maintaining that weight now. I’m just trying to stay in shape and working out so I’m extremely happy with what Ian’s done for me at EarthFIT.
I was skeptical at first when I talked to Ian. I’ve been through some therapy up north when I was up there, and they just did stretches and stuff and they really were not able to do much for me so I was skeptical, but again, willing to try anything and I was impressed when I looked at a video on the back issues so it helped the fact that Ian had gone through some of the issues I had with the back, and so it worked. I’m extremely happy.
I’ve lost from 207 to 172, so 35lbs I lost, but more importantly at least from me is I lost 5 inches off the waist. This biggest impact is the fact I’m now like to stay active. I’m not really a TV person or I don’t like to sit around. I like to be active whether, you know, going to the race track, going to car shows, or just walking. I really enjoy just going for nice long walks and I’m able to do all that. It’s fine. I’m tired at the end of the day but that’s a good thing.”
“Hey! What’s up? Today I wanted to speak to you specifically about Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (Also known as DOMS). This is when your body becomes sore after training.
So typically, the first time that you train your Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness is going to be the most severe because the training is like a shock to the body. It is moving outside of homeostasis, there are small microtraumas that happen to the muscles and the body is not prepared for what is occurring.
The good news is that this process is what makes you stronger, gain more lean muscle, and have better brain, mind-body connection. So DOMS typically occurs 24-48 hours after training. It can happen much faster, it can last much longer, but that’s the typical range.
I’ve had soreness that’s lasted meweeks before because I over did something, you know, way way too much. And I’ve also had it hit me real fast and there’s reasons to that, as well, because that’s going to be the next thing I’m talking about, which is nutrition and that’s like if we went to a whole… I could do a totally different video just on nutrition for this, but I’m just going to cover the basics. The more water you have in your body, the more cells you have in the body, the more balanced the cell is with nutrients, minerals, etc. the less soreness you’ll have, and the faster you’ll get nutrients in right after training. You have about a 45 metabolic window of time to get you know good lean protein in with a little mix of carbs so the carbs helps transport the protein to the muscles and helps the repairing process. If you don’t have a lot of water in your body, you don’t get the nutrients you need, you don’t have the nutrients before you train, your soreness will go up. Think of it like, again, not having oil in the car, right? so rusty muscles going against each other. So, the more water you have way before your training the better, the more water you intake after, the better. Your recovery will be much better.
The eccentric phase of the movement is when the soreness occurs, that’s what creates the soreness. So when you go down on the squat, that is the eccentric phase. Right, when you’re walking down the stairs this is something that typically happens: people say, “Oh my calves are sore, it must have been from walking up all the stairs.” Well, actually, it’s from walking down the stairs because as you step your calf has to decelerate the movement and that’s the eccentric motion which creates the soreness. So, anytime you’re doing the eccentric motion, that’s where the DOMS comes from. It’s also where most injuries occur in exercise. So, starting out, you always want to go slow in control movement pattern so you reinforce the proper movement, the connection from the brain to the muscles, etc..
Now we’re gonna move on to the recovery portion. How do I recover faster from DOMS. Well you can increase the rate of recovery. Nutrition we already spoke about so the more water you have inside you before you train and after the better, so after training keep drinking more water but light activity will help increase the process; getting more blood flow, nutrients and oxygen so your blood flows and circulates, right? that’s one of the main reasons for the cardiovascular system is to circulate the blood and clear out trash. So what you can do is something like light jogging, light stretching, or even going into a sauna and then coming out and doing light stretching. This will help flush out some of the trash, the lactic acid that has been built up. It will help get more blood flow, more oxygen and nutrients to the area that has the microtrauma and this is how the repairing process begins. And this is true for injuries like real actual injuries like a bad sprain ankle, right? People say like lifted elevated, don’t move it. It’s actually good to get your heart rate up and get the blood flow circulate through the foot not necessarily using that foot that you injured, right? so I want to make that clear you wouldn’t be walking on the foot you injured but doing others stuff like upper body or maybe the other leg on a bike will get your heart pumping the blood and flowing to help repair that injured area. So it’s the same for muscle soreness.
One of the best parts about training is if you are training and then you get injured or you go into surgery or something like that, your recovery process is about 50% better or faster because you’ve been training and you’ve put that stress on the body. Your body knows how to repair itself faster so when you get an injury or have to go for surgery, it’s much easier and better to recover. So we went over that more oxygen and blood flow you can get to the body by doing things like hot showers, going into the sauna, doing light cardio, some light stretching will help the recovery process and if you’ve seen our video on supercompensation that is specific wher,e you know, you’re going to training your body actually fatigues while training and then you recover and your body recovers at a better state, and then you can train a little bit harder and typically the soreness should go down if you’re adapting the body properly: not too intense, not too fast, not doing things too soon.
Alright, this is Ian Hart. I hope this help. Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness is typically happening if you’re training especially the first time and now you know why, now you know what to do how to recover. I hope this helps. Have a great day!”
“Hey! What’s up? So I wanted to go over with you something extremely important. I’ve already probably mentioned it to you if you came in for the assessment but I want to do a video about it because it is so important for your results, for your safety and for your health. And that is what we’re here for.
So, what is it? Well we’re talking about the warm up, right? The warm up is an injury prevention. So that’s the no. 1 thing that all of these things I am listing here are going to be about, right? So, it’s an I feel safe preparation type thing, that’s what we’re doing. So I’m just gonna go down a list of the benefits of the warm up.
(1) Psychological and Mental Preparation
When you’re warming up you’re getting yourself ready, you’re getting your body and your mind ready for the training. Remember we say like 80% of everything or you hear that said 80% of everything is mental right? Well, that’s true! Training is mental. The preparation for training is even bigger and better than you can even imagine. You will get 10x the result, you’ll feel much better when you do the warm up and the proper warm up. And what is a proper warm up? Well, I’ll get into that.
It (2) Increases your Core Temperature and your Heart Rate so that means you’re getting more oxygen to the body, more blood flow to the muscles, the muscles will work better, you’ll get better results, and you’ll be safer in the training.
It also (3) Increases Proprioception. Proprioception is an awareness in space. It allows us to touch our finger to our nose, so when we’re out there doing movements, we’re gonna do better movements, more masterful movements and then you’re gonna activate the muscles more and better to get more results.
(4) Activates the Nervous System
The nervous system works by you sending info from your brain. You’re firing electrical impulses and information to your extremities to get them to move. The more information you send, the more muscle fibers you activate through the motor units. The motor units recruit your muscle fibers and then you get more out of the training. Again, all of these leads back to getting more results, being safer.
It (5) Activates Synovial Fluid to lubricate the joints like oiling up your joints. So if you just jump right into workouts all the time, that’s a lot more force going on to the joints without the lubrication, so think about it as driving a rusty car all the time without oil. You’re going to break down a lot faster, a lot sooner so and this is another reason why water intake is extremely important right? That’s another separate video aside from this but it’s in combination everything works together. So we want to activate synovial fluid to get the joints more lubricated and ready to move which will help up us. (I’m gonna jump to no. (7) Increase in our Strength, Mobility, Flexibility and Endurance.
And jumping back to no. (6) It’s going to Encode the Proper Form and Technique when you move back into the training area. So say, you do your warm up and then you’re going to the training area, your muscles are activated you’re mentally, psychologically prepped , your blood flow is going, your heart rate is up. Now, you’re gonna burn more calories, you’re gonna burn more carbs which is our prefered source, the body’s prefered source of energy, you burn the carbs in the warm up and then you’ll burn more fat in training. And that’s what we’re here for. Burning fat, gaining lean muscle and feeling better right? It also helps detoxify the body.
So, what’s the best way to warm up? Well, the warm up ideally would be about 20 minutes long. If you’re just starting out, that’s maybe too much for you to handle. So 5-10 minutes minimum is what we want and we have a few different options. We have a you know our actual warm up video or you can go around jogging, that will get your heart rate up. It’s a good way to meditate, psychologically prepare or you can use the cardio equipment which is always the last thing I recommend for people because I want the people to move kind of in the range of motion that they will be moving when they get into the training which is kind of squat patterns, pressing, arm movements right? This is why mobility drills and warm up drills are extremely important.
Ok, so just a recap when we do the mobility, activation or warm up drills, it’s going to activate the nervous system, get more synovial fluid to your joints, it’s gonna increase your heart rate and blood flow to the working muscles, it’s gonna psychologically prepare you for the training and you’re going to increase your strength, endurance, mobility, flexibility, stability, you’ll have more proprioception and awareness of where you are in space so you won’t trip, fall over, you will feel safer in general. Therefore, we keep you safe, you have less injuries, less joint aches and pains, and more results. That’s why the warm up is so important. I hope this video help. Have a great day!”
Last week I announced that we will be getting the top of the line sauna at EarthFT LI which will have far infrared, mid infrared and near infrared as well as medical grade chromotherapy and no electromagnetic frequencies. I will explain what the latter is in another post. The response has been amazing and people are more excited about it than I thought they would have been. Truth be told, after doing a ton of research I was happy to purchase the sauna even if no one was interested but me. It turns out a TON of people are VERY interested and you will find out why below.
I have also received a ton of questions about it and I will fill you in more as time goes on. In the mean time I figured I would share some info from my friend Bret who I would consider an expert on Saunas and the detox protocol that goes along with it that we will be implementing for those that want it. This should answer some questions I have received. See below.
Committed to your success,
Types of Infrared
BRET BOUER·FRIDAY, MAY 13, 2016
Here is some information on why Far Infrared Saunas are the most effective way to mobilize toxins. Also listed below are benefits of near and mid infrared.
Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, M.D., of Seattle: In one study performed by American researchers, the sweat of people using a conventional sauna was found to be 95 to 97% water while the sweat of those using an infrared thermal system was 80 to 85% water with the non-water portion principally cholesterol, fat-soluble toxins, toxic heavy metals (such as mercury and aluminum), sulfuric acid, sodium, ammonia and uric acid. This unusually high concentration of heavy metals and other fat-soluble toxins is not found in the sweat from normal exercise. Mercury is the most toxic element on earth, second only to plutonium. Hyperthermic detoxification using these saunas is not only uniquely helpful in removing fat-stored toxins from the body, but also as an adjunct to mercury removal.
Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, M.D., of Seattle, who has been called ‘the holistic doctors’ doctor and teacher, is one of the pioneers in combining the use of far-infrared saunas with the chelating agent DMPS in a heavy metal detox protocol. Dr. Klinghardt explains, “Since hyperthermic sauna therapy removes metal contaminants from the body, we have found that it may be used to further the benefits derived from chelation therapy. And we have also found that it may be an alternative for those who are unable to undergo chelation. Research conducted by U.S. scientists has demonstrated that close to 80% of individuals with chronic fatigue syndrome will improve markedly by a guided detoxification program. We combine this approach with hyperthermic therapy using the far-infrared sauna, as well as exercise and chelation. The results we are seeing are very promising.”
There are also some benefits to near and mid infrared that I will list below. Far Infrared should be the foundation of any sauna. A full spectrum sauna would be ideal because it would have near, mi.d and far infrared. I have only found one brand that is truly full spectrum. I have found that many brands lie about that as well Message me Bret Bouer for more info.
BOOSTS METABOLISM– The mitochondria (power plants of the cells) produce more ATP (energy currency of the cells) when NIR (near infrared rays) is introduced. (1,2)
REDUCES BODY FAT– A group of 20 women riding stationary bicycles 3 times per week for 4 weeks exposed to NIR lost an average of 8 cm’s or 444% more as compared to 20 women doing the same exercise without NIR. (3)
INCREASED ENERGY– NIR activates the color sensitive chemicals (chromophores & cytochrome systems) to depths of 23 centimeters (or about 10 inches), stimulating the energy processes in cells. (1)
IMPROVED CIRCULATION TO THE MUSCLES – NIR causes the release of nitric oxide. This stimulates vasodilatation of the microcirculatory system, bringing more blood to the muscles. (4)
BETTER ENDURANCE – Muscle fatigue was reduced by up to 42.2% when exposing muscle to NIR. (5,6)
INCREASED STRENGTH– Growth hormone release is induced by an increase in body temperature and not by exercise itself. Growth hormone increases muscle mass, calcium retention, and lipolysis (the breakdown of stored fat). (14)
FASTER RECOVERY TIME– Certain tissue regenerating genes including integrins, laminin, gap junction proteins and kinesin proteins have shown a two- to five-fold increase upon exposure to NIR. (7,8)
WORKOUT IN LESS TIME– Due to increased production of ATP and quick dilation of the microcirculatory system, a person can lessen warm-up time and work at a higher level of exertion without increasing blood pressure. (1,9,10)
DETOXIFY THE BODY– Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins and waste. Sweat is the only way to remove certain carcinogenic PCBs, dioxins, phthalates, and volatile organic hydrocarbons. (11)
REDUCED VISIBLE CELLULITE– Cellulite is fat mixed with toxins that are trapped, in part due to an underactive circulatory system. Cellulite is so visible, in part due to weakened connective tissue. NIR helps rebuild connective tissue and has been shown to reduce cellulite. (12)
REJUVENATES SKIN– DNA Synthesis of fibroblasts, which affects the elasticity of skin, increase five-fold with NIR. The result is younger-looking, more beautiful skin. (1,7)
LESSENS JOINT AND MUSCLE PAIN & INCREASES FLEXIBILITY – Penetrating heat from NIR has long been proven to reduce pain and increase circulation to areas of discomfort. NIR has also been shown to significantly increase the range of flexibility. (13)

Beaufort Fitness: “My life after EarthFIT I have a lot more energy; I’m a lot happier.”
“My life before EarthFIT: I had no energy, I couldn’t sleep, I was really, probably, unhappy. I didn’t look unhappy and wouldn’t walk around with a frown on myself, but the joy that I feel after doing all I can do to be the best I can be it’s hard to put words to that. I just feel so much better and I’m so proud of myself. My children are proud of me, I’ve gone from a size 12 to a size 8 and I look forward to working out here 5 days a week.
My life after EarthFIT I have a lot more energy; I’m a lot happier. I’m a lot more content with my life, I feel like I’m looking out for myself for probably the first time in 63 years really put me first, and I’m not smoking and I lost the weight that I gained after I quit and I don’t have fat ankles, I don’t have fat thighs, I don’t have fat arms and strong is the new skinny.
I was very skeptical in fact I came here looking for a pilates class, because I heard that was easy way for all women to get in shape, and I felt like an old woman. I prayed every morning before I came in here that it was going to be called off, because the electricity went off, or Ben fell down but now if I don’t come one day I feel like something is missing. It’s really great; it’s made huge difference in my life.
I would recommend EarthFIT to anyone who feels that they aren’t their best, they feel that they aren’t doing the most that they can do for themselves. You know, when I came in here I had the same vessel, it’s just a completely different vessel and I’m really proud of it. Not just losing, you know, going down two sizes, but I stand up straighter; I just feel better and I sleep better.”
Make the unconscious conscious with sentence stemming.
“Hey! What’s going on? It’s Ian Hart here with MyBackPainCoach.com, EarthFITtraining.com and BackPainRelief4Life.com. And today I wanted to go over with some things that would help you shine a light on areas in your life that you can change. So most people are aware of what is consciously going on in your life, they’re understanding, like what’s in the reality consciously, but they’re not fully aware of what’s going on subconsciously. Maybe the talks that they have with themselves, inner talk, the chatter that’s going on, the emotions that they might push down that tend to manifest out in reality whether in pain in their body or emotional issues or relationship issues, etc.. And so today I wanted to give you a simple way to maybe shine some light, and it’s kind of a first step in a process that would help you kind of coach yourself to, maybe, a better life.
Alright, so this would help shine a light on some of those things that you might be doing that are causing the reality that you don’t want and that’s the first step into changing that reality.
So Sentence Stemming. This is a great way, it seems like you know, the first time I write it, it’s like, could this really be that powerful? Then I did it myself, and it helps you think through and process some information to help you get where you want to be. So I just put examples right here… “I would be healthier if…” and then you fill in the blank. So, whatever you think would make you healthy right? Well if I stop eating fast food, if I did more exercise, if I got a health coach or started doing a personal training, whatever it might be. “I would be happier if…” who knows, I’m just making example, if my commute was closer to my job or whatever, if I exercise more often. “I would be in better shape if…” etc., etc. “My back would feel better if…” because we’re dealing with a lot of people with back pain and a lot of them are doing things daily that are causing back pain like sitting all day. We all know that it’s terrible for the back. Alright, so maybe my life, with my back pain, would be gone if I stood up or I had a standing desk or whatever it might be. So this will make you more conscious of the things you’re doing unconsciously that are causing the problems that you want to solve. So sentence stemming will help tremendously. I hope this helps you.
