About Kate

kate-deeringFor over 20 years Kate Deering has been involved in the health and fitness industry helping men and women of all ages achieve optimal health and wellness. Kate’s practice is based on a holistic approach to health and wellness by looking at the entirety of a person’s well-being.  A person’s well-being includes diet, stress, exercise, posture, sleep, digestion, hormones, mind-set and lifestyle.  Kate believes maintaining all of these key components are vital to a person’s overall health and happiness.  Her expertise is based on certifications as a CHEK Exercise Coach, CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coach 2, Olympic Lifting Coach, Resistive-Stretching Practitioner and Certified Nutritional Consultant.

Kate, an athlete her entire life, has played competitive tennis, participated in dozens of running races, including the Las Vegas Marathon, hiked the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim and Mt. Whitney, the highest peak in the continental U.S.  She is currently training in her second Pedal the Cause 100 mile Cycling event to raise money for cancer research.  Her personal accomplishments along with her education and training molded her approach to training her clients from a fitness-dominated perspective.  

In 2010, Kate realized her years of focus on solely physically training her body began to break down.  She hit a physical and emotional wall.  Everything she believed, practiced and espoused was no longer working. This is when Kate was introduced to the work of Dr. Ray Peat, Dr. Broda Barnes, Dr. Constance Martin, Dr. Han Selye, Dr. Uffe Ravnskov, Josh Rubin, Danny Roddy and many others.

Within one year, after spending significant time reading, researching and personal experimentation, Kate healed her body and her metabolism.  Along the way, her entire belief system about what constituted “true health” shifted 180 degrees from what she had been practicing during her almost 20 years in this industry.  Good health was a no longer defined by how many hours she could work out, how much will-power she had, or how low her body fat could get. Good health is now defined by a lack of injuries and sickness, great sleep, good digestion, healthy skin and hair, lean muscle and a warm body, overall happiness and emotional well being.

Kate knows and understands that the nutritional, mental, physical and spiritual components of a person’s life must act synergistically…one is not more important than the other.

How to evolve/grow into a healthier human...

1. Be open. No matter what you think, you don't know everything. In fact, your beliefs about your life, your healthy, your nutrition, your work, your relationships, etc. may be hurting you more than helping you. Personally, I have held many beliefs that later screwed me up. Luckily, I was open for change. Be open to new information, it may direct you to a better path.

2. Nourish yourself. For you to be able to evolve and grow, in a world of craziness, you need to be properly fueled. I can't tell you how many people are now able to make the BIG decisions in their life, now that the have adequate energy to think, feel and sleep. When your body is under fueled you remain in a state of survival, unable to take on new experiences, ideas and challenges. Fuel your body with nutritionally filled sugars, adequate protein and healthy saturated fats. Once your body has adequate energy and nutrition, your entire world will begin to OPEN up.

3. Move. Your body loves to move. In fact, movement not only improves blood flow, muscle development, digestion, hormone balance and energy level, it also improves brain function and overall nerves system function. Remember there is also a balance in movement, too much of a good thing can become a bad thing.

4. Conscious Thinking. Most of what we do in life is performed unconsciously--we don't really think about what we are doing, we just do it. It's our habits that take us through our day. For you to change, you have to bring your thoughts back to a conscious level. If you choose to not think about what you want to change, change does not occur--and you continue to fall back to your old ways.

5. Be kind. I always find it amazing how mean and critical people can be--especially on the Internet. Being mean/critical doesn't get you anywhere--in fact, it just makes you look like an ass. Being kind, understanding and empathetic will get you everywhere. It is not your responsibility to tell anyone their beliefs are wrong, because they do not match yours. If what they say, does not vibe with you, then you can either move on OR be quite, open and willing to hear what they have to say...

6. Be quiet. Listen to what others are saying, instead of talking. Sit with your thoughts and feelings in silence. Meditate. Read. Deep breathing.

7. Screw up. Yes, you have to fail to become better. Nobody is getting through life without screwing shit up at least once, maybe 100 times. In fact, those that fail the most, may be the ones that grow the most. More failures means you kept trying, you kept getting up, you kept learning and you didn't allow disappointments to get in your way--which can be REALLY hard. Every time you got up, you got a little bit stronger and a little bit wiser.
