What to do if you want to thrive, but you don’t know how
Here’s how every person can rapidly learn the principles of healthy living. In 4 short courses, I guarantee clarity on how to thrive
These are the top 6 benefits you will get out of the courses:

This is my promise to you.
The methods in this course are timeless beacause they are not based on clever tactics or fads. There are no shortcuts or quick-fixes. This is real knowledge and tools for real people, based on the experience—and success—of real people. Me and my clients.
It is also ridiculously simple. If you’re able to get the basics in place, then you can learn the secrets of thriving in any environment.
I know you could definitely be doing something else right now, so I want to thank you for taking the time to read this page. I’ll do everything in my power to make this an awesome investment. By the end of this course, you’ll know:

When I coach or give talks, I always get asked about my story, and how these courses came about. I think that’s a really important question to people, because you want to know that you can trust what I’m saying—that I can actually deliver the goods, so to speak. And you want to know what makes my courses different.
So let me tell you.
The problem with the health and fitness industry
When we take a look at the wellness industry, it is filled with scrupulous marketers, snake oil salesman, lies and so called “gurus”. If you’ve had the misfortune of buying products or services that gave you no results, you’ll know this.
But why is this?
Well, you know that it’s human nature to want immediate gratification. When we want something, we want it now. If we are offered immediate results at a fraction of the time or effort, but at a cost, we are quick to pounce. We want to look good TODAY! We want to feel good TODAY! We want it TODAY! We are often not willing to put in the time and effort to get the results we want. Marketers and opportunists know that and take advantage of it.
There are many online trainers, coaches, courses, blogs, diets, fads, books, supplements, equipment etc. promising you a better looking and healthier you. And naturally, we fall for it. If this is you, don’t worry you’re not alone.
Health food, supplement, exercise equipment and other related companies are making millions out of us. And our health is deteriorating…
Take it from me—most people who are selling you something that sounds to good to be true is selling you a lie. They’re just interested in your money, not your health. I know and see a whole bunch of these companies, so I can say this with some authority. They aren’t interested in anything apart from making sales, really.
Like them, I make sales too. But that doesn’t drive me. I feel overwhemed if I can make a difference in someone’s life. I like to inspire people to change and if I do that, I get more satisfaction than any amount of money can buy.
That is why I provide you with an Infinate Thriving Guarantee, more on that later.
Further there is an overwhelming amount of health advice in the media, I know. And it is confusing, overwhelming and often contradicting. Research and case studies are often used to substantiate claims made by food, drug/medicine and supplement companies. What we often fail to realize is that these companies often fund these expensive studies to be conducted. And naturally the results will be skewed in favor of the product so that the stakeholders will benefit by selling more products and make more money…
But I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me back up and tell you about my story.
How I came to be a health coach and the founder of Thrive
From as far back as I can remember, for the last thirty odd years, I have been fascinated with the human mind and body. From a young age I asked myself, “How can I get the most out of life?” In other words what will give me the richest and best experience of this life. This one opportunity I have of living my life.
My goal was to get to the bottom of this…
Therefore I’ve made it a lifelong journey to study and experiment as much as possible to find the way to optimal physical and mental health. I studied nutrition, exercise, human anatomy, biology, endocrinology, immunology, psychology, philosophy, neuro-semantics, neuroscience, mindfulness and stress to get a better understanding of what would be the basis and foundation to achieve my goal of optimal wellness.
I wanted to thrive.
So here I am today, after years of testing, reading, trying and experimenting I have come up with the basics needed to thrive.
People around me noticed the changes in me and started asking me what I was doing and how I was doing it. They wanted to know why I was always upbeat, feeling good and healthy, looking better and always had energy to climb another mountain (figuratively and literally).
I realized that many, if not most people around me we’re not thriving. Many were confused about what to do. Others were frustrated because what they were doing wasn’t working. Some were not motivated or could not maintain the energy required to implement the changes needed in their lives to keep them healthy. So I changed careers and pursued my passion of teaching and coaching others on how to thrive.
Of course, I didn’t figure this stuff out all by myself. Much of the succes I have today is based on years of research and testing by others that came before me. Much of the theory is based on work by doctors, pshychologists and researchers. The practical patterns and exercises are based on neuro-lingusitic and neuro-semantic principles for re-programming your brain. Most of this was formulated and structured by Dr L. Michael Hall from the International Sosciety of Neuro-Semantics.
This journey has led me to where I am today. A certified Fitness & Nutrition Coach, Life Coach, Neuro Coach and Stress Management Coach.
As the founder of Thrive, I have facilitated and helped various groups and individuals actualize their potential and achieve optimal health. I have taken my life’s work and designed courses. Courses that will help you thrive.
Who will my courses benefit?
My courses are geared toward anyone who wants to thrive. Anyone who wants to improve how they feel, look, function and perform. You may just be overweight and unfit or your health might be in a dire condition. This course can help you.
There are many obstacles between us and our goal of achieving health, vitality and longevity. These obstacles are external as well as internal. External obstacles are things like time, circumstances, lack of resources, the environment etc. While internal obstacles are things like confusion, procrastination, excuses, low motivation, limiting beliefs and toxic frames of mind that keep bad habits in place. The Lifestyle Upgrade will help you to remove these obstacles. It brings these to your awareness and shows you how to effectively deal with it.
The goal of the Lifestyle Upgrade is to improve your general health. If your health is optimal, you will most likely look better, move better, perform better and feel awesome. How do you improve your health? By getting the basics in place. No quick fixes, no magic pills, creams or supplements, fad diets, gizmos or any other short-cut nonsense.
Not only will the courses provide you with guidelines; they also address your thinking. If you have toxic or negative beliefs or frames of mind, preventing you from living a healthy life, the courses show you how to remove or change that.
So what does all this mean?
Here’s the bottom line:
Thriving is actually (first and foremost) all about understanding your mind and body and getting the basics in place. If you do this consitently and over time, you will thrive.
What do I mean when I say thrive? Well, it just means to be healthy and feel awesome.
What are these basics I keep referring to? They are: Nutrition, Exercise, Mindsets and Stress
The Lifestyle Upgrade program is made up of courses that cover these four areas. Once you have control over these areas, you will create the conditions for yourself to thrive.
The goal of the Lifestyle Upgrade is to improve your general health. If your health is optimal, you will most likely look better, move better, perform better and feel awesome.
How do you improve your health? By getting the basics in place. No quick fixes or any other short-cut nonsense. These courses will equip you with knowledge and tools. Not only will the courses provide you with guidelines; they also address your thinking. If you have toxic or negative beliefs or frames of mind, preventing you from living a healthy life, the courses show you how to remove or change that. If we change the inner attitudes of our minds, we can change the outer aspects of our lives.
What makes the Lifestyle Upgrade offer unique, you may ask? There are many online solutions promising you a better looking and healthier you. What differentiates this program is that it focuses on your governing frames of mind and uses that as the leverage point to change your life, instead of focusing on your behavior or actions. I know and understand the importance of psychology and the mind in life, and focus on getting that in order before changing anything else.
Every battle is either won or lost in your head.
Most books, diets, programs or other fads put too much emphasis on your actions and try to change behavior, without harnessing the power of your mind. That’s why success is often short lived and limited.
Another thing is that I do not sell supplements, pills, creams, books, diets, gadgets or other quick fixes. So there is no agenda. I provide you with knowledge and a better understanding of yourself.
Invest in your own knowledge and get the basics in place. The reality is that consistently doing the right thing over time brings results. Lasting results.
Each course includes not only explanations of the principles involved, but examples, exercises, questions, a workbook and stories from real life to help you apply the lessons so that is does not stay mere knowledge. The catch is that you have to do the easy exercises.
The 4 courses are briefly summarised below:

Your greatest wealth is your health
This brings me to what Steve Jobs said on his deathbed:
“At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of impending death…In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the breath of God of death drawing closer… Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing that can never be found when it is lost – “Life”…When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading – “Book of Healthy Life”…Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down.”
Jobs mentions that material things can always be found or bought, but your health and your life cannot. Futher to that he says that wealth and recognition means almost nothing… These are startling words coming from this genius and icon of our times.
The reality is that you have one life and if you neglect your health, you WILL regret it one day.
