I help people that want to change - when change is hard.
Do you worry about being unhealthy in your older years?
Are you just a little heavier than you’d like, more tired, less patient, and less productive?
Is your weight hurting your career or your relationships? Is it making you anxious or unhappy?
Have the lifestyle habits you've accumulated over the years increased your risk of developing dementia, cancer, cardiovascular disease, or type 2 diabetes?
Are you overwhelmed, and confused by the advice on what to do, but are still determined to change?
Imagine what changing your health could mean.
Imagine how much more productive you could be and enjoy your spare time with energy and vitality.
Imagine how much more you could give of yourself to your team, and your family.
Imagine growing old strong and smart.
I can help you unravel bad habits and build new healthier ones.
The good news is I can help you retake control of your health, lose weight and feel great.
I do not offer off-the-shelf programmes. I work with you to create your own unique health plan.
Each health plan is created to the goals and timing required for each individual.
This is because each person is unique (and a one-size-fits-all approach fits no one very well).
Each plan includes addressing nutrition, exercise and lifestyle interventions and habit building.
The outcomes can include short-term improvements in cognitive function, stamina, strength, weight loss, stress and long term health risk lowering and slowing down ageing.
My approach is centred on my own health journey and scientifically validated wellness principles.
Principles that support our genetics with optimal nutrition, effective exercise, stress-reduction and balance in all aspects of life.
Breaking down the science and medical jargon so that you have an informed situation in which to make decisions.
Who am I, and what do I do?
My name is Nick and I am a certified Health Coach. I support the implementation of healthy lifestyle habits for people that want to retake control of their health and well being.
I know these days people have little time, lots of stress and some of the same worries I had.
Worries about ageing, weight gain, preventing illness or disease and living a long healthy life.
Even concerned their bad habits could affect the lives of their children, and their children's children.
In my mid-50s I wanted to avoid the most common causes of early death: cancer, cardiovascular disease, dementia and diabetes. So, I learned how to look, feel, and live healthily; and slow-down the ageing process. To aim to be physically the best my genes will allow.
40 Kilo loss - No exercise
The saying goes, 'you can't outrun a bad diet', so I changed how and what I ate. I did no exercise other than the occasional game of golf.
Over a period of around 18 months, I lost 36 kilos (80lbs) and went from a 106cm (44") waist to an 81cm (32"). I've lost 4 kilos more since then.
I have more energy to pursue more interests, have less stress and much better sleep. I'm a much happier, and positive person than I was just a few years ago.
If you're committed to changing your health outcomes, I want you to experience these benefits as well.
I became a health coach to support people that want to change when change is hard.
I created GeneLife Australia to help you live a longer, healthier life.
