    Reduce Injury, Disease and Aging by Prioritizing Proper Movement with Ryan Maxwell

    Reduce Injury, Disease and Aging by Prioritizing Proper Movement with Ryan Maxwell

    Growing up, I lived in a household where my parents and family struggled with obesity and metabolic disease. We went to countless coaches, counselors, and therapists looking for guidance on how to get our health under control. I realized that while these individuals had good intentions of helping my family, there was always something missing. One would focus on diet but give little advice about exercise. Another would give lifestyle and emotional support but disregard movement. The net result being more confusion and frustration than achieving meaningful change. I realized then that to be truly successful, a person needed to have multiple coaches who all worked together. But who had the time or money for that? We certainly didn’t.

    That’s why my vision for Fluid Health and Fitness was born from the need to deliver what the wellness industry was lacking: a system that considers and balances all of the elements of health and wellness in a way that fits into your lifestyle. One that meets you where you are at: not where we want you to be. And one that teaches you how your body really works.

    So many programs out there focus on just one segment of health while glossing over or charging more for the others. This creates a disservice to their participants as the supporting elements make it possible to create positive changes. So we created an inclusive system that takes the average person looking to be the best version of themselves, and show them how to take a complicated process and make it simple. We give you a roadmap for health. At Fluid Health and Fitness, we call it “maintenance for life”.

Nyeusi Nyati ,

Biofeedback for the win!

I recently listened to the conversation with Dr. Hart and it rings true to everything I have learned over the past decade with yoga as well as teaching recovering addicts how to use yoga asana and pranayama to manage internal response to both thoughts and external situations in a positive way.

I believe this 2020’s will be the decade of truly bringing together so many different aspects of performance through powerful biofeedback technologies to cultivate the next generations of highly capable, compassionate humans.
