It is time! Time to make a change – for the thousands, if not millions of people who want to improve their fitness, wellness and vitality and become a healthier version of themselves. Imagine being able to make that happen…
Conquering the battle to manage one’s weight has been a challenge that has grown over the decades, and now the need for a new approach is beyond obvious. In Australia alone, 56.2 % of women and 70% of men are now considered to be overweight or obese. (Ref: Australian Bureau of Statistics).
If you have a passion to be part of the solution to this ever-growing problem, then this is the course for you. Complemented with the latest research about neuroscience and the learning processes of the brain, this course leads the way for change by equipping you with the knowledge to understand why people make the choices they do about food and how you can help them change their habits.
