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!
When you let your stress get the best of you, you put yourself at greatly increased risk of developing a range of illnesses or diseases – from the common cold to severe heart disease to cancer. Stress has an acutely powerful impact on your well-being as it is a natural response activated in the brain; its an autonomic function, you cannot prevent it -and don’t want to, but you can (and should) learn to manage it and direct it as well as to do things that enhance your natural recovery processes.
Over the past 20 years, Rob and Shannon have acquired the education and applied experience to simplify the approach and coach people to a healthier, stress-less life. In addition to >10,000 client hours, they have earned certifications in Stress Management Coaching, Food Psychology Coaching / Mind-Body Nutrition, Heart Rate Variability Specialists, Certified Master Personal Trainer, Yoga Fit , Precision Nutrition Certified Coach, Senior Fitness Specialists, and many many more certifications.
