Is Cryotherapy the New Silver Bullet in Recovery?

One of the big trends emerging today is cryotherapy. Especially when it comes to recovery and fat loss, cryotherapy has shown positive effects over simple traditional cold water immersion., though it’s so new, some of the benefits have yet to be scientifically proven.

Cryotherapy is the process of hyper-cooling the body, usually as a method of recovery relative to sport and performance exercise. However, recently it has been being used as a new solution to everyday injuries, as well as relief from any inflammatory issues such as arthritis and normal joint and muscle pain.

When you undergo cryotheraphy, expect to be subject to sub zero temperatures..anywhere from -125 degrees to -200 degrees, in a highly regulated and monitored environment, for 3-5 minutes.

Purported benefits include:

  1. pain relief and muscle healing
  2. weight loss
  3. reduced inflammation
  4. brain health and dementia prevention
  5. cancer treatments
  6. reducing anxiety and depression
  7. improving skin conditions like eczema
  8. migraine treatment

However, some studies have recently came out about its effects versus normal cold water immersion therapy for recovery…which is just what it sounds like, prolonged exposure in an ice bath or sub temperature environments.

One of my favorite new age health and fitness resources is Ben Greenfield, where he does an entire podcast episode comparing the effects of cryotherapy against normal cold water or temperature immersion for both general recovery and fat loss, saying that for prolonged fat loss effects, being exposed to any cold temperatures for a prolonged period of time where the body is working to return to normal temperature will have a positive effect.

If you want to give cryotherapy a try, as an athlete or just an everyday person looking to switch up your routine, a visit can cost you anywhere from $70-$125 at a specialized clinic. Or, if you’d like to buy a tank for yourself, you’re looking at anywhere from $45k-$150k. Or…buy a house ūüôā Either way is fine!

This is just one of the methods I educate you about through my individual coaching. Want to learn more about different ways to improve your health in minutes each day on ANY schedule? Check out my coaching information HERE

The Future of the Workforce – What does this mean for you?

The working landscape is changing. What this means for you, and why it’s creating fear for so many!

As you might have been seeing lately….the workforce is changing. Dramatically. Be it due to technology, social values, demographics, legislation, or any other reason, employers are finding themselves needing to make adjustments, quickly. The truth is, the workforce is now finding themselves with the power, forcing employers to change the way they do business, and hire quality staff.

What does this mean for you? Well, A LOT. Here are some facts about the changing landscape and some implications as a result.

WHAT’S HAPPENING

  1. More than HALF of the current workforce are millennials.
  2. Skilled positions are being replaced by robotics and automation.
  3. One and done education and career learning models are DEAD.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN

  1. Workers are demanding more freedom, autonomy, and balance. Remote workforces are more popular and will continue to grow.
  2. Technological updates are making a shift from labor skills to cognitive skills focusing on digital management, computer engineering, management and untitledentrepreneurship.
  3. Employers need to include EXTENSIVE models of experienced based CONTINUOUS learning and development for employees.

Another huge shift…people are recognizing the NEED and the low barrier to entry for entrepreneurship. With the internet, social media, and ability to essentially start a business from the comfort of their own home, studies show that entrepreneurs will make up more than 40% of the entire workforce by the end of 2020.

Not everyone can be an entrepreneur. I have so much appreciation and respect for those who are dedicated to being monumentally successful in their current or future corporate positions. But for me, I know that the above is scary and somewhat overwhelming! I want to be an entrepreneur…but so does everyone else.

My call to you. WHATEVER you do, make sure it SERVES you and your greater vision. If you want to be an entrepreneur, and do it successfully, but don’t know how to get started or even want you to do…I can help you.

I hope you enjoyed the quick read! And remember, what is it costing you to NOT live the life you want?

Are You Where You Want To Be In Life?

You don’t have to be stuck doing something you aren’t passionate about. Man’s greatest journey is his search for meaning and passion in his life…it is my passion to help others realize theirs.

*READ TO THE BOTTOM FOR A SPECIAL OFFER TO ALL OF MY AMAZING FOLLOWERS*

For TOO many people, the answer to this question, is NO. It doesn’t matter your gender, age, marital status, current occupation, social class, or educational background, EVERYONE deserves and SHOULD have ANYTHING they want in life. And here is the secret….. you CAN!

There are so many wonderful life coaches and motivational speakers who have helped MILLIONS of people just like you create change in their lives. They preach that the first step is to create a NEW mindset that aligns with the change you want to make; which is absolutely true. However, once people leave these talks, seminars, finish their books, or finish watching their videos, though they seemingly have DECIDED to make change, still they fall short in reaching their goals because something happens. It’s because though they have all of this new knowledge, they fail to take action on what they’ve learned.¬†They lose momentum. They get stuck. For many different reasons, they fail to move towards change or they cease the actions once things get too hard.

This was me. I was lost, discouraged, broke, unfulfilled, and ultimately lacking purpose and direction. I decided to make a change. I watched, read, listened to EVERYTHING I could in the form of motivation and self help. Many of these influential people indirectly become my mentors, and eventually I began to align my actions with my new found purpose. It was enlightening, uplifting, and FREEING.

A lot of people don’t take personal coaching seriously, because they don’t think they need it, it’s silly, or too expensive. Well what if I told you that the short term cost will be exponentially increased by the long term GAINS? What if I told you that it’s okay to ask for help, that it’s BENEFICIAL to you to seek guidance from someone who can help you solve your problems and become fulfilled and on the path to your TRUE POTENTIAL?

that is my purpose. to help you avoid all of the hard times and tough struggles that I went through to finally discover what I’m here for. whether it be general health and fitness, career progression, financial goals, relationship goals, finding purpose, or setting/reaching goals and seeing RESULTS, I can help you on the right path to achievement.

To express my deep appreciation for those of you who’ve been with me through this journey of discovery, along with my FREE initial video strategy coaching session, if you decide to let me help you, you will get 25% off each month that we are working towards your goals together.

If you want to take advantage of this, or see what it’s all about, let me know HERE. THANK YOU!

 

Success is service – a huge THANK YOU!

INTERACT with me and tell me what YOU want to read! As an entrepreneur, my goal is not success, but service. And sometimes they are a direct relationship of each other! Thank you for 200 followers! Let’s change the world together.

How many of you have heard about the importance of “the power of small wins”? As an entrepreneur, this is probably one of the most important points that you can focus on. Why? Deciding to be an entrepreneur is often a life-long dedication to nothing but FOCUSED DETERMINATION and ENDLESS WORK. And sometimes this is a draining, and often discouraging endeavor. As an entrepreneur, you’ve got to focus on and value the small wins, or small successes that you achieve, for that will provide motivation and a re-energizing of your determination and drive. For me, being a health and wellness entrepreneur, I choose to share this information for the free benefit of everyone who comes in contact with it. And to me, causing even 1 person to learn something new, or make a beneficial change in their lives is a HUGE win.

This morning, I woke up to 200 followers to this blog. I hope this means that people are finding value in the information I’m putting out there. In an effort to increase this even further….I want YOU to write me and let me know what YOU want to hear or read about. LET’S HEAR IT! And on top of that….a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who chooses to contribute to my goal of changing the world by bringing out the BEST in everyone. Let’s keep adventuring to this optimal goal TOGETHER! ‚̧
