Let’s start with what we aren’t. IWC is not and will never be confused with anything “trendy.” If we develop a workout, eating plan or wellness strategy for you, it will be developed using strategies, techniques and science that has been proven over time to create results safely and effectively. It seems
there are new fitness concepts, classes or diets being talked about on a weekly basis. The problem with being an early adopter of these concepts is that we don’t know if:
A. The really concept works
B. What the outcomes will be over time (positive or negative)
This is why we stick to the classics that include training movements (not body parts), promoting nutritional strategies that work (small meals/snacks, 85% rule, organic foods, etc.) and behavior modification techniques that promote lifestyle change vs. quick fixes.
Second, we develop our programs to include more than just the physical element of wellness. To balance out your wellness we should strive to find balance in the 8 key areas of wellness:
help generate awareness. Think of your wellness like a tire. When properly inflated, it rolls quite nicely but if under or overinflated, it doesn’t roll well at all. When our total wellness is out of balance, we don’t roll well and it’s funny how improving an area outside the physical element such as a relationship or one’s finances will reduce stress and allow that person to achieve weight loss goals. It all ties together and in our sessions we help our clients piece it all together. It also creates a well-rounded experience for our clients.
your wellness like the gas gauge in your car. At this moment, how full is your tank? Our job at IWC is not to fill your wellness tank from empty to full overnight. This would be wonderful but that is not reality. We all have jobs, kids, stresses, struggles and barriers to overcome. No, our job at IWC is to help you move your wellness needle a little closer to “full” than it was the day before. To provide strategies and concepts that you can implement on your terms and at your pace.
We care very deeply about our clients’ successes, but remember, success can be measured in many ways. If we can take a person who does not exercise at all and get them walking 5 days a week, we have moved that person’s wellness needle in the right direction. If we take a person who eats no fruits or vegetables and get them consuming 1-2 servings per day, we have made progress. Good health, fitness, wellness and yes, looking good in a swimsuit aren’t about an overnight quick fix. It’s about the journey. Friends, we are here solely to help you on your journey. If we can be of assistance do not hesitate to contact us!
