How to Gain an Unfair Advantage in Business and in Life 

The E.U loses around 2.5% of its national GDP due to employees missing work. Research shows that health problems (like obesity) are the most common cause.

The average employee sits for an average of 13 hours daily. The desk-bound lifestyle is causing an epidemic in lower back pain, obesity, and work related/lifestyle (preventable) illnesses. Germany spent 12.5% of their GDP on healthcare costs in 2020. 

Europe spends between 1.9% and 4.7% of the total annual health care costs and 2.8% of the annual hospital costs dealing with issues from a sedentary lifestyle. The correlation between obesity and chronic disease significantly contributes to the increase in the company's healthcare costs. Sadly, things are not improving, so your company is losing fortunes. 

The United States is losing over one billion dollars annually in health care due to lower back pain, and over twenty billion in employer costs treating carpel tunnel.

These figures are the tip of the iceberg regarding how much employers spend on their sick and broken workforce.

"I went from daily lower back pain to almost nothing in a few weeks. Sometimes I find myself wishing it would return, only so I can test my new exercises." 

Dr. Prof. Thomas Knoll - Urology Department Head of the Sindelfingen Hospital


Your default should be Healthy, Happy, and Strong NOT full of Chronic Pain and Illness 

Movement Culture 

Move More or Die Younger

The study, commissioned by ISCA (International Sport and Culture Association), shows that half a million Europeans die yearly due to being physically inactive. The most common causes of death are those diseases linked to being physically inactive, such as coronary heart disease, type II diabetes and colorectal and breast cancer.
One in four adults across Europe is currently physically inactive – as are four out of five adolescents.
The total cost to Europe’s economy from such widespread inactivity was over €80 billion a year – five billion Euros more than the world spends on cancer drugs yearly.
If nothing is done to get people moving and more active in their day to day lives, physical inactivity could pose a bigger risk to public health in the future than smoking.

Stop Wasting Time Being Sick

People are getting sick more often, and companies are losing fortunes. In 2022, sick leave cost Germany an average of 91 hours per employee - a staggering 23-hour increase from the year before. The Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW) estimated that sick days cost Germany a 1% loss in GDP or 27-42 billion euros in 2022. 

Sick days will only increase. Why? Because COVID was not the leading cause for this record-breaking disaster - the common cold and flu were! 

You must learn WHY you are getting sick and HOW to reverse engineer the problem for a life-long solution.

Sleep Science

Sleep More or Suffer the Consequence

Sleeping less than eight hours an evening is costing your company a fortune and killing you. More than 35% of working professionals sleep less than seven hours an evening. Germany loses over 60 billion yearly with more than 200,000 lost working days annually (

Think you function with less sleep? One out of one thousand can sleep less than seven hours and not suffer a cognitive loss. Research clearly states that "sleep debt" can't be regained - you will die younger

Inefficient sleep is bankrupting your company, shortening your retirement (because you're dead), and robbing your family of a loved one. 

Learn how to sleep deeper, travel smarter, and make sure you are ready for the day
  • Poor sleepers reported 2.29 days of unplanned missed workdays in the past month due to poor health, compared with 0.91 days for all other workers
  • Poor-Sleeping Workers More Likely to Change Jobs
  • ​Fixing sleep (time and quality) is estimated to save $32.4 billion in replacement costs​
  • ​1 out of 1000 people can sleep less than six hours and NOT have adverse effects. Your chances of getting hit twice by lightning are greater than having this genetic abnormality
  • ​Stop your company from losing millions by learning a simple and effective sleep routine - it is that simple

What is my "WHY"

At ten years old, I was diagnosed with ADHD, ADD, depression, and bipolar disorder, and doctors prescribed Ritalin, Adderall, and Prozac. Years later, I discovered that food allergies were the culprit—all my so-called "illnesses" were easily treatable with better food choices and movement.

Combine that with excruciating pain from scoliosis and poor mobility, causing multiple bouts of extremely painful tendonitis. Numerous doctors and physical therapists related this to my scoliosis and told me I could do nothing.

The lack of hope and empathy from the medical profession sent me on a mission to help myself and then teach others to do the same.

I graduated in 2004 with an Athletic Training/Sports Medicine degree and in 2007 with a Master of Science in Human Performance and Injury Prevention. I have worked with organizations like the ATP, AVP, WTA, NFL, NHL, MLB, and multiple Olympic and world champions like Martina Hingis, Victoria Azarenka, John McEnroe, and Adrian Peterson, to name a few. 

I lived in Cairo for five years, learned Arabic, and helped develop a top ten world-ranked junior - and was almost killed in the Egyptian revolution and kidnapped in Nigeria while doing it!

"I believe everyone's default should be Healthy, Happy, and Strong."
