Adam's Story: Practical Spirituality

"I came to the Paleo Community after a number of years of “Paleo” or “Ancestral” eating.
 
In 2004 I was extremely sick with Ulcerative Colitis and was nearly dead several times during that period. By 2008, I had proven to myself that the Medical Establishment was wrong and what I ate actually did have an effect on my digestive system’s health (Imagine that…).
 
After years and years of experimentation with a number of different approaches, I arrived at Paleo mostly by trial and error.
 
In 2008-2009, the Paleo community was large and visible enough – mostly thanks to CrossFit and Robb Wolf – that I was able to find my way full circle and embrace a Paleo lifestyle with a ton of Community support." - Adam Farrah

Using Practical Spirituality

In the age of over-information and radically packed family and work schedules, Adam has found personal and professional growth by using the power of what he calls "Quantum Evolution" in the vehicles of yoga, meditation, chakras, and tarots.

Beyond just paleo, Adam is shifting his focus in 2016 to begin integrating practical spirituality in coaching, speaking, writing, and in contribution to the wellness industry via his popular website. In episode 33, we discuss how Adam has used medical marijuana, practical spirituality, paleo dieting, and alternative healing to help overcome his own dependency to pharmaceuticals, depression and health issues to transform the way he works with clients.

A Winding Path Towards Wholeness 

From Adam's Blog: "A Winding Path Toward Wholeness… It’s over 10 years ago now that I started down a path toward recovering my health and healing my life. It’s been a challenging and detour-filled journey. When one embarks on a path toward healing a whole life, there are very few stones left unturned and few ideas not explored – at least in a rudimentary way."

  • IKFF Certified Kettlebell Teacher – Level 1

Are You Interested In Changing Old Habits With New Technology?

Dec 6, 2015
Today's special guest is a true pioneer in digital health and wellness technology. As the CEO and co-founder of NudgeCoach.com, Mac Gambill has created a swell of momentum in creating digital tools that are driving the change we must see in the fitness and wellness industries.
 
Mac's company, Nudge Coach, is focused on helping health coaches turn their passion into a sustainable business through continuing education and a market-leading software platform. His platform combines data from health tracking apps with a streamlined notification and messaging system to enable coaches to better manage deeper connections with their clients.
 
In today's show, Mac uncovers how literally anyone with the desire to lose weight and change old habits now has a more powerful way to do so with this cutting edge new technology. 

Changing Old Habits With New Technology

Beyond the weight loss stories of people losing over 100lbs with Nudge, his company is literally changing the landscape of how coaches and trainers are working with clients; finally closing the ever-widening gap in fitness between too much knowledge and too little execution.
 
I’ve mentioned previously on the podcast about our up and coming Digital Health Coaching groups where I’ve used Nudge to help my clients get results, and I’m excited today to have Mac share his insight and action steps to help uncover:
  • How we can change old habits with new technology
  • What your data says about your life
  • Why fitness industry is fundamentally broken and how digital health can save it
  • How coaches, nutritionists, trainers and health & wellness professionals can leverage this technology to grow

In an age of over-information, the modern day lifestyle now demands more that the current fitness industry can handle.

What frustrated me most as a pro trainer after working in gyms for 10 years was that I never really knew what my clients were doing in the 165 hours they weren’t in session with me. 
 
In over 10,000 sessions as a fitpro, I eventually became burnt out with my clients not getting the results they deserved to have.

A New Paradigm

After stretching my coaching practice to include Group Training, Corrective Exercise, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition, Metabolic Typing, and getting certified in handfuls of other fitness and wellness courses, I still intuitively felt that something was missing from my toolset:
 
Increased client accountability.
 
The one thing that coaching and training for over a decade has taught me, is that to have knowledge is one thing, but to execute on that knowledge is another.
 
On a higher level, the uncomfortable truth in the wellness and fitness industry today is that there is a massive gap between knowing what to do and having the system in place to actually do it.
 
This is where Digital Health Coaching has changed the playing field.

Personal Gold

After seeing the power of digital health applications and devices in late 2014 during a screening of the film "Personal Gold," I drove home with the seed planted for an ultimate coaching "ah-ha" moment.
 
On the way home that night, I thought about how the 2012 USA Olympic Women's Cycling team had won a silver medal using quantified self, digital health and mHealth.
 
Then, a lighting bolt shot through my brain:
 
I realized that the very same wellness technology that can help win medals for athletes has the ubiquitous power to help change poor health habits for regular people.
 
This began a 16 month journey in searching for the "dream ecosystem" where I'd be able to coach clients using the data their bodies created. After hunting, failing, and getting knocked down, I finally found a platform called "Nudge Coach" that changed my coaching and my business forever.   
 
If you are a health coach, gym owner, fitness pro, nutritionist and this sounds like it could help grow your business and get your clients superior results, join me and Nudge for a free webinar about using digital health to grow your current practice.
