You’ll learn about fat burning efficiency zones, gut health, mental performance, maximizing recovery, boosting libido, and enhancing every possible aspect of your body – rather than just work out like a madman and eating boring food.

Once you’ve introduced yourself to incredible guidance from Ben Greenfield you may also want to try out Ithlete. Ithlete is all about improving your training effectiveness using Heart Rate Variability. Ithlete helps you monitor your rest and recovery — some of the critical aspects of training that should never be underestimated. Ithlete helps you understand when to train and when to rest. The answer is heart-rate variability which measures the time-gap between your heartbeats when you’re resting. The heart speeds up when you inhale, and slows down when you exhale: the difference is known as heart-rate variability (HRV). A healthy, well-rested body will produce a wider gap than a stressed out, overtrained body. But measuring and tracking heart rate variability presents a more precise picture of your overall health. A high reading combined with a normal resting pulse is good news — you can train hard that day. A low reading means you should take it easy, providing you with a guilt-free rest day. And while your body is in recovery mode, your muscles are busy getting stronger. Forget about the struggle when you feel like you want to have an intensive workout but you’re not sure if your body is well rested. Ithlete can tell you exactly what’s best for your body today. If you want to improve your performance without risk of injury or illness, want to know when and how hard to train and optimize your recovery, and get several other benefits that will enhance your training and recovery, you should definitely check out Ithlete.

Body relaxation is absolutely essential for your physical performance and what can be a better relaxation than a good massage? The answer is Shiatsu massage. Shiatsu massage is a Japanese style of massage, officially known as Namikoshi Shiatsu Ryouhou, named after its founder Mr Tokujiro Namikoshi. During a Shiatsu massage, the Shiatsu practitioner treats patients by using various types of pressure techniques that utilize fingers, palms and thumbs.
Depending on the patient’s condition, he adjusts the depth and the length of the pressure of his techniques accordingly, maximizing the effectiveness of the Shiatsu therapy. Shiatsu massage is beneficial for stress relief, total body relaxation, whole body treatment, recovery from injuries, maintaining health and wellness, and pure pleasure. Such common conditions as back pain, headache, frozen shoulder, stiff neck and shoulders, and stress-related symptoms (insomnia, high blood pressure) can be treated with Shiatsu massage. If you are ready to give it a try then Nordic Shiatsu Centre is here to assist you. Francis Gamache is a qualified Namikoshi Shiatsu Therapist from Canada, working in Finland since 2001. He has treated a variety of clients including entrepreneurs, CEOs, office workers, athletes, teachers, composers, and homemakers, who all have greatly benefited from his Shiatsu treatments. Francis has 14 years of experience in the field of Shiatsu Therapy. He graduated with honor from the Canadian College of Shiatsu Therapy and underwent a 2,500-hour Shiatsu curriculum from 1999 to 2001. You can learn more about the Nordic Shiatsu Center here.
