Our Holistic Approach Will Get You Happy, Health, & Healed

While we absolutely would love to coach you on only exercise and nutrition, we want you to know that most of our clients also do breathwork and meditation with us now. Why?

Because most people are just too stressed out and spread too thin these days to add intense exercise and strict diets to their lives right now.

Of course we will eventually encourage you to workout and eat in a way that will get your hormones in balance and heal your gut, we believe there’s a much better way to achieve optimal health.

What If We Told You That The Secret To Getting Healthier, Happier, & More Fit Is Through Breathwork & Meditation?

I know what you’re thinking, “How can breathing and sitting still in silence actually help me lose weight and get healthier?”

You probably have some big goals and dreams that you are chasing that are also keeping you busy. But being busy and driven means you also live a fast paced, high stress life and in order to do that, your body has to constantly be pumping out CORTISOL.

Cortisol is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands in response to stress. It plays a crucial role in the body’s response to stress by increasing blood sugar levels and suppressing the immune system.

While cortisol is essential for our survival, chronic or excessive cortisol production can have negative effects on our health. Some ways cortisol can harm your health include:

  1. Increased risk of cardiovascular disease: Excessive cortisol can lead to high blood pressure, which is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
  2. Weight gain: Cortisol stimulates the appetite and can lead to overeating, particularly of high-calorie foods, which can lead to weight gain.
  3. Impaired immune function: Cortisol suppresses the immune system, making us more susceptible to infections and diseases.
  4. Insomnia: High cortisol levels can interfere with sleep, leading to insomnia and other sleep disorders.
  5. Mental health issues: Cortisol can cause anxiety, depression, and other mental health problems.
  6. Digestive issues: Excessive cortisol can cause digestive issues such as stomach ulcers, acid reflux, and irritable bowel syndrome.

Overall, it is important to maintain healthy cortisol levels to ensure optimal physical and mental health.

Breathwork and meditation can help lower cortisol levels by activating the body’s relaxation response, which counteracts the stress response that leads to cortisol release.

Specific breathing techniques can help reduce cortisol levels by activating the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for promoting relaxation and calmness.

By slowing down your breathing patterns and taking deep, intentional breaths, you can help lower cortisol levels and induce a state of relaxation.

Meditation involves focusing your attention on the present moment and observing your thoughts and emotions without judgment. This practice has been shown to lower cortisol levels by reducing stress and anxiety.

By training your mind to focus on the present moment and not get caught up in worries about the future or regrets about the past, you can reduce the cortisol-releasing effects of stress.

Breathwork and meditation can affect the release of several neurotransmitters, including endorphins, dopamine, serotonin, and GABA, which can help reduce stress and anxiety, improve mood, increase motivation, enhance cognitive function, and promote a sense of well-being.

Breathwork is also a powerful tool that can help you release emotional blockages, is a safe and effective way to address trauma, and brings healing to your mind, body, and soul.

Why Us?

A lot changed for us in 2020.

From 1997 to 2020, we ran a brick and mortar personal training studio in Coronado, California. But when covid shut us down, we had to adapt.

We rented a house in Montana on a large property where our family would spend each day working out, doing yoga, and meditating together.

Yes, we still worked out too, but for me (Victor), it was the first time I became aware of how busy my mind was. I realized that there was so much more to me than I thought.

Even while doing simple yoga flows with my family in the privacy of my own living room I noticed how hard it was for me to stay present and not let my mind wander.

But I kept at it and with consistency and intention, I was able to start uncovering so much of my programming (childhood beliefs) that were keeping me stuck in life.

Then, in the summer of 2021, we went to a Music and Sky Festival where we experienced Holotropic breathwork for the first time.

It was an amazing and transformative experience for all of us. But for me (Victor) it was extremely deep and powerful and forever changed who I was and how I worked.

Holotropic breathing is a specific breath work used to help heal trauma and release trapped energy. We use it to help access areas of the subconscious and nurture ourselves along our self growth journey.

As I child, I experienced sexual abuse for many years. It not only left me feeling shame, fear, and anxiety, it also caused my brain to default to an aloof response where I zone out often and have trouble focusing.

It kept me from being present for my wife and family and it also limited my ability to provide for them.

In order to grow a new online business, I had to be able sit down and focus but due to my trauma and programming, my fight or flight response was stuck in flight mode.

Being aloof meant I’d find anyway to stay distracted.

I used overworking, overgiving, scrolling on social media, or just spacing out to keep me out of my mind and too busy to notice what was really happening on the inside.

But in Montana, I found myself with an excess amount of time and space. I became aware of all that hurt I was avoiding. I developed a deeper understanding of myself and began reprogramming my mind for healing and happiness.

It was the first time I had the desire to not just be strong and healthy, but to get in touch with my true self so that I could be fully present with the most important thing to me, my wife and kids.

What Is Most Important To You?

We find that since 2020, many people have started to ask themselves, “What is important to me?”

As a collective, people are realizing how short and precious life is and how important living a life filled with health, love and abundance truly is.

This is why we have shifted our focus from just fitness and nutrition to also include breathwork and meditation.

Fitness is Not Health.

Fitness is a part of health, but fitness alone doesn’t create health.

Health is the absense of dis-ease and it starts with our thoughts.

Like you, I was taught a very scientific approach to the body but didn’t understand the inner workings of the mind.

Did you know that you have 60,000-80,000 thoughts a day and up to 95% of them happen on the subconscious?

How aware are you of your these subconscious thoughts?

Until 2020, I (Victor) didn’t know how much was going on below the surface until I started integrating breath work into my daily routine.

Personally, I am more emotionally available, stable and feel greater levels of joy that I have ever felt.

Did you know that as mammals we store trauma in our muscles and fascia?

When, I was struggling with adrenal burnout in my mid-thirties, I started diving deeper into the somatic experience but it was really the holotropic breathwork that got me to the layer that I needed to access in order to heal.

What I learned about trauma and healing is that talk therapy is great but we also have to access the energies that our stored in our body to heal. We have to break up & release the crystalizations in our energetic being.

Because we encourage our clients to also integrate this breathing technique, our clients have more energy and space in their bodies to do what they love, be more present with their families, and grow their wealth.

What would you do with the extra space?

If you’ve been struggling with your health and body weight, I encourage you to try something new. We’ve worked with a lot of people who feel like they did everything right but couldn’t get a break through until they tried our different approach.

The answer doesn’t lie in intense exercising or starving yourself. We have a Holistic Health Solution that is gradual, realistic, and will leave you feeling feeling whole again.

Are you ready to take action? How great would it be to feel happy, healthy and healed?
