Health Coach and Personal Training in Santa Barbara

Personal training and health coaching are emerging fields in the healthcare industry, in particularly in my town of Santa Barbara. Since the explosion of “gym culture” in the 50s, training and exercise has become a science. And in addition, nutrition has become more extensive, and so the two combined are both testaments to how staying healthy requires a comprehensive approach to both. I regularly share with my clients, “you cannot exercise yourself into health.” Health, a bodily characteristic that boosts immunity and promotes continual neuro-cognitive growth, is multi-factorial. Only paying attention to muscle mass and calories are an unsophisticated way of measuring your health, and we have got to evolve with the times.

Today, people are interested in health more than any other time in history. We want to look good, feel good, and accomplish our vision in an efficient manner. If we want results, we have to begin addressing more than exercise with personal trainers- enter health coaching. As a health coach, massage therapist, and personal trainer in Santa Barbara, I help my clients optimize their health by looking at behavior change and nutrition optimization.

The wheel below, for example, shows the importance of taking a systems approach to health. It emphasizes personal training, though equally ancestral eating (health coach), and stress down regulation (functional medicine). I help all my clients in Santa Barbara, whether they want to focus on personal training, health coaching, or functional medicine, flesh out this wheel more fully.

Functional Medicine Health

Holistic Health Approach, Functional Medicine Wheel of Health

Not to mention we grow most of the country’s tastiest produce. With one of the largest active populations in the US, Californians prove to the world that health is a top priority to them. If we want to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to longevity, aging, and health we have to use a holistic model that merges functional medicine with personal training and health coaching.

The world of training is evolving. It is time you start evolving your health too.
