Course Description

Get the Body and Health you’ve Been Dreaming of by Changing your Mindset.

The Problem…..

You have been taking pills and supplements to lose weight. You have tried every fad diet under the sun. You have been spending all your money on a gym membership that you never use because you can't find the motivation to go. All of this and you still haven't dropped the weight or achieved your health goals! You are sick of eating when you get stressed, tired or sad. You are sick of lacking the confidence in yourself and your body to achieve what you want to achieve. You want to lose weight for your health, family or loved ones and you desire to bring back your self-confidence that was lost when you put on weight.

The Solution…

I am pleased to offer a valuable course that will help you lose weight and obtain your health goals by changing your mindset.

This course is about identifying the roadblocks to your health goals’ success and creating new innovative solutions to become successful in the future. No pills required! No surgery needed! And no feeling sad, deprived or stressed in the process of getting to your goal. In fact, the aim is to enjoy the journey towards your physical and mental health. It's not all about achieving happiness once you reach your goal weight. This course will teach you how to enjoy yourself and feel confident as you are now and when you reach your goal.

By signing up to this course and taking action on the tasks set, you will be on your way to achieving the healthy body and mind you’ve been dreaming of!

What are the requirements?

  • The only thing students need to do is approach the course with an open mind and a positive attitude.

  • Create new strategies and habits that will build a sustainable and healthy lifestyle.

  • Learn how to boost your immunity, fight disease and delay ageing by eating a variety of nutritious foods that increase your overall wellbeing.

Who is the target audience?

  • This course is for students who want to make changes and finally achieve their health and weight loss goals. It is not for students who want a quick fix or magic pill. This course is for people who are willing to put the time and energy into understanding each topic and then take action to make the changes.
  • Students who want a different style of course delivery - such as animation videos.
  • Students who want to have a bit of fun while learning. :)
  • Students who like dogs may also have a soft spot for this course as there are stories and analogies about dogs in many modules to help with understanding.
