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.

Here are 10 THINGS you can do HELP heal your metabolism

1. Eat a metabolically supportive diet: saturated fats, healthy sugars, coffee, salt, digestible proteins, fruits, cooked roots and vegetables, juice, dairy, liver, oysters, bone broth, gelatin, mineral broth, butter, chocolate and even ice cream.

2. Remove crap that is anti-metabolic: PUFA (ALL polyunsaturated fats), soy, legumes, goitrogenic vegetables, crappy grains, NOT sleeping enough, toxic people, toxic jobs, toxic thinking.

3. Allow for proper recovery: Sleep, rest, meditation, stretching, yoga, light therapy, massage, acupuncture, Z-drills

4. Breathing. Deep breathing, bag breathing, yoga

5. Movement: Do what your body is healthy enough to do. If you need to recover and are over stressed then yoga, short walks, Thai chi, and enjoyable low stress activities are best. If your body is becoming healthy and is well fueled, then weight training is the most optimal exercise, as it can increase muscle mass

6. Brain Training: Z health (proprioception, vision and vestibular drills)

7. Light therapy: Sun light, Infrared, red light, tanning bed

8. Taking charge of your life. Making choices that support your health and happiness.

9. Changing your narrative. Focus on health vs weight loss. Focus on reducing symptoms vs. your body fat %.

10. Supplements: I have purposely listed this last, as I believe adding supplements are LAST thing to look when trying to fix the metabolic rate. Thyroid hormone, progesterone, pregnenolone, B vitamins, cyproheptadine, Vitamin E, Vitamin D3, Vitamin K2, Methylene blue, caffeine, aspirin, and/or antibiotics.

At the end of the day, healing is about supporting YOUR system with what it needs: energy, love, rest, stimulation, light, healthy self talk, breathe, and the right supplements. Now, what you need may be different than what your spouse, neighbor or friend may need. This means you may need to take the time to learn about yourself, your needs and how your body responds to certain stimuli, foods and therapies.

This is YOUR journey, it's ALL about YOU learning about YOU.
