HRV for Health Coaching with Rob and Shannon Yontz

HRV for Health Coaching with Rob and Shannon Yontz

In 2003 Rob and Shannon started on their mission with True North Pioneering (True North Fitness & Health) to improve the quality of people’s lives by providing fitness and health solutions. They’ve spent the past 15 years evolving the practice that supports that mission and continuously improving their lives and the lives of thousands of individuals whom they have worked with. What they’ve come to learn and see firsthand is that stress, left unmanaged, yields a predictably and radically ill effect on people’s health and happiness regardless of other efforts. And, too, whether by avoidance or ignorance, that stress is a poorly addressed to totally not addressed aspect in our industry as well as across the board!

From decapitation to positive psychology: how one nerve connects body, brain and mind

From decapitation to positive psychology: how one nerve connects body, brain and mind

Excerpt from Andrew Kemp’s article: “… little research has been done which looks at how the vagus nerve affects body and mind together. That’s why I teamed up with colleagues to question whether previously reported relationships between vagal function and cognitive performance could be explained through a single physiological pathway.”

Overfat & Underfat: New Terms & Definitions Long Overdue with Dr. Phil Maffetone & Professor Paul Laursen

Overfat & Underfat: New Terms & Definitions Long Overdue with Dr. Phil Maffetone & Professor Paul Laursen

First coverage with Dr. Phil Maffetone and Professor Paul Laursen on their newly published and controversial scientific paper titled: “Overfat and Underfat: New Terms and Definitions Long Overdue.” We discuss the pandemic of people who are “overfat” — defined as having sufficient excess body fat to impair health and how this classification differs from “overweight”. If we’re to truly address the problem, we need to start using the right terminology and not hiding behind propriety (in certain situations). Doctors, researchers and individuals all need to arm themselves to take control of what some are now calling the “world health crisis”.
