Man to Man Coaching

This relationship begins with an in person meeting and a meaty intake form – through which I get to know you, your hurdles and your goals.

After which we'll build your personalized roadmap into wellbeing.

When we can line it up I coach in person: these one-on-one sessions take place in the oceans, rivers and forests of Vancouver, BC, Whistler, BC, the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island and as of November 2018, Sayulita, Mexico.

I supplement in person sessions with phone and Skype coaching.

Here I use video lesson content and encourage clients to get out for a walk and movement in nature during out call. At the end of the call we fill out your Health Map – an intentional map to your week that outlines commitments in diet, movement, recovery, mindset and more.

Typically a session combines movement and conversation.

Examples of movement:

  • Lifting and carrying techniques perhaps while balancing on logs and stones
  • Routines to develop a strong posterior chain and combat sitting fatigue
  • Barefoot walking and running technique
  • Various forms of breath work, cold plunging

Examples of conversation:

  • Following an ancestral or traditional diet
  • Creating routines to manage energy levels and proactively dispel stress
  • Transitioning safely to barefoot and minimalist footwear
  • Cooking organ meats, meal planning and eating out safely
  • Navigating relationships by cultivating honesty and intimacy
  • Achieving an ancestral way of life in an urban environment
  • Learning to stay fit without 'working out'

The Commitment:   

I've had clients work with me for several years and also gotten what they need in as little as 8 sessions. I offer coaching in bundles of 8 sessions and currently bill out @100/hr.

Ready to drop the status quo?

Are you curious what your roadmap looks like?

Chop Wood Carry Water

Unplug from the busyness of your life and connect deeply with yourself, your body and the natural world. The Chop Wood Carry Water program is a deep dive that will accelerate your personal health transformation.

And Man – is it fun.

Together we'll engage headlong with the surrounding wilderness of Vancouver Island – you'll grow stronger and develop a host of ancestral health skills while also delving into your story, the nature of your mind and what matters to you: why are you here? What are you passionate about? What holds you back?

A typical daily routine includes the movement and conversation focus of Man To Man coaching above but offers a wider and deeper experience.

Morning Itinerary

  • Meditation, gentle movement and breath work before breakfast
  • Trail building on our 50 acre farm with axe, chainsaw and pick before a cold water plunge in the creek
