Philosophy

kate-deering-fitnessSince Kate’s start in the health and fitness industry over 20 years ago, her ideas and practices have evolved dramatically. Once a believer that one must workout more and eat less to get healthy, she now believes quite differently. In fact, for some to achieve health, they need to do quite the opposite.

As we get older, we are led to believe there is a natural aging effect. With age, we wrinkle more, we gain more fat, we lose muscle, our posture deteriorates, our bones get weak, our energy diminishes, our metabolism slows down, we feel colder, our skin gets dry, our joints hurt, our sleep becomes restless, our digestion is irregular, and our sex drive goes in the toilet. Augh. Doesn’t aging sound fun?

Kate believes, along with numerous other researchers, that aging is based more on how we live our life vs. the years we are on this planet. Meaning, we can slow down and even reverse much of the aging process if we understand how to exercise properly, eat supportively, reduce stress, live with purpose, love, and appreciate the life we
are given.

True health is established with an understanding of what things increase metabolic function and what things decrease it. A high metabolism is linked to youth. A high metabolism is linked to a lack of disease. A high metabolism is linked to good sleep, a healthy sex drive, healthy skin and hair, a lean body, and overall happiness.

Kate’s methods in nutrition, exercise and mind-set are designed to help you live longer, increase metabolism and decrease injury and illness. Backed by the teachings of Paul Chek, Dr. Ray Peat, Dr. Broda Barnes, Dr. Mark Starr, Dr. Hans Seyle, Dr. Constance Martin, Dr. Weston A. Price, Josh Rubin and many others, Kate has developed
a nutritional coaching program that can help you gain back your health and increase your vitality.

Aging does not have to be a miserable process. It can be a journey of getting to know your body better, understanding your physiology and anatomy so that you can keep your body fit and healthy for its next adventure.

"Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way. "

-Viktor E. Frankl, "Man's Search for Meaning"

I absolutely love this quote. It reminds me that I have choice to let life break me or to allow myself to find meaning, even in the most devastating of situations.

Viktor Frankl was a professor of neurology and psychiatry. During WWII he spent three years at Auschwitz, Dachau and other concentration camps.

Everything was taken from him. His wife, his family, his freedom, food, his possessions, etc. He was beaten, worked to the bone, fed food scraps, faced the fear of death everyday--yet, he did not allow his situation to break him, as he knew he still had choice in what he told himself. He still had choice in his attitude.

I can not even fathom what it must have been like for a holocaust survivors. Luckily, my life does not bring such hardships, but there are different pains, disappoitments and struggles. And somedays I feel like life is going to break me--and then I remember I still have choice.

Here is the thing about life..there are no guarantees. You can do everything right, yet still meet disappointment, illness, pain, loss, and heartache. I know when things like this happen, life doesn't seem fair. I have been there--many times. The truth is life isn't fair and shitty things happen to amazing people. Nobody is getting through life unscathed. We all have many lessons to learn. What is realized is the painful, challenging times are the pivotal times that makes us stronger, wiser, and better human beings--if we choose. And yes, it is a choice.

Like every holocaust surviver, Viktor Frankl could have let his experience break him, and we would all understand if it did. It would make sense if he was angry, resentful, hateful, depressed, etc after such a horrible experience. Yet, he still choose differently. Im sure it wasn't easy, and it took a lot of hard work. Yet, he still choose a different attitude, one that allowed him to survive, even thrive after his liberation

So what am I trying to say..
Even in the shittiest of times there is meaning. You may have to dig really deep, but there is meaning... The trick is to allow yourself the time and space to find it. To not avoid things but work through things. To allow yourself to feel whatever emotion that comes up. And then to be able to accept what ever life has brought to you. Once you reach acceptance, you will be free.
