1. Ancient Greek definition for the word SOZO meant to ensure one's Salvation. But the root of the word SOZO means to keep safe and sound. In order for us to truly change the way we think about ourselves, we must first offer you a safe environment to do the hard work.
2. SOZO is a verb…it means to move, it means action. While fitness programs are at the core of what we do, just as important is the emphasis we place on educating the client. It is important to know why you do what you do…this reinforces a lifestyle change.
3. We value the concept of accountability and our clients’ commitment to self discovery. When we face our vulnerabilities whether in body, mind, or spirit, we then know where the work needs to start. This is the beginning of wellness.
4. The word SOZO was used finally to mean “restore to health.” When our client accepts where they are now and are willing to move forward, they are on their way to true healing.
5. SOZO was a word that collectively with all its usages meant “to bring safely.” We value the education, certifications, and licenses that our staff brings to our clients. We afford the best equipment and latest technology. We ensure that our products can bring about the best results. Everything we do mirrors the value we place on the safe passage our clients will embark on to a new and lasting lifestyle.
… to identify the root of your struggles in a wholistic-mind, body, soul approach and coach you to achieve your optimal health by using the six foundation principles of the C.H.E.K Institute.
6 Foundation Principles of the C.H.E.K Institute
1. Sleep - Get to bed by 10:30 p.m. Your physical repair cycle begins about 10:00 p.m. and runs until about 2:00 a.m. Your neurological/hormonal systems do most of their repair cycles between 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. So get to bed so your body can be strong for the next day!
2. Exercise - It doesn't need to be a hardcore workout, just get some regular MOVEMENT! Walking, yoga, aerobic exercise all have great benefits. Remember, train not drain your body!
3. Hydration - The average human needs to drink half his or her body weight in water in ounces a day. So if you weigh 200 pounds, you should drink 100 ounces a day. Remember this is a minimum! If you sweat more, you'll need to drink more.
4. Nutrition - Aim for a healthy diet of unrefined, unprocessed foods and keep your intake of sugar and white flour to a minimum. Buy as much organic as you can afford, putting a priority on meats and dairy.
5. Breathing - Breathing is something we do around 20,000 times a day. Make sure you do it correctly by taking big deep breaths in which your lower stomach fills out as you take a breath then drops backs in as you breathe out.
6. Thinking - Get plenty of quiet time. How and what you think has a profound affect on your body. Focus on creating what you want with your thoughts, not what you don't want!
And Remember: "I Before 'We' Always!"
Take care of yourself first so you can be strong mentally and physically and in the best position to care for those you love
