What is Innate Strength?
Physical Strength and Mental Toughness are one and the same. You are born with the right to be strong, all you need do is to go and develop it for yourself. “Easier said than done” you may say. That is why we coach you to find your own Innate Strength through Breathing, Strength and Conditioning training.
You see, your life will give you the circumstances you need to develop your own strength. This may be a disease, pain or dysfunction in the body. It could also be the desire to become something more than you are now, to achieve athletic glory or use your body for a physical adventure.
To develop innate strength, the type of challenge does not matter and the level of challenge does not matter. All that matters is that you want to become more than you are. You want to become medication-free, live pain-free, live a healthy life and/or use that same health to achieve something glorious for you.
So, no matter where you are right now, you can use the principles we coach to heal disease, attain health and optimize human performance.

Where do we come into the picture?
We coach you how to develop the strength you require for the physical challenges in your life. This strength is not what you might typically expect. It’s not about lifting heavy weights (although we do that sometimes). Rather it’s more about learning the signals in your own body; how to read them and how to use them to become strong. Through workshops, one-to-one training and online courses (*in the future) we show you how to breathe well, move strong and challenge yourself in a controlled environment. You can then use these teachings to heal your body and perform some awesome physical challenges. To give you an example of the power of Innate Strength some of our previous clients have eliminated the need for medication and gone onto to run marathons. Others, meanwhile, have become pain-free and returned to martial arts.
We always begin by training the weakest link in your body. We target your weakest aspect and build you strong from there. More often than not, your weakest link is your breathing. It sounds funny but it’s true.
What do we do specifically?
We coach you to health and we show you how you can use your body to achieve physical challenges without destroying yourself. Fundamentally, we coach Breathing, pre-habilitative strength, athletic strength & conditioning and ice immersion.
We eat 3 times per day
We drink ~10 times per day
We breathe 24,000+ times per day
We exhale 70%+ of the toxins from our body using our breath .....and yet nobody seems to be training our breath to improve health.
Here at Innate Strength.com We show you how to restore a functional breath. Every time a client manages to restore their optimal breathing pattern, much of their disease disappears – for good.
We then teach you to use your breath to optimize other systems in your body to gain more energy, think more clearly and become more creative.
We also combine breath training with cold exposure training and physical training. By joining these training modalities we create a much more potent stimulus for your body to change. You can heal quicker, feel better for longer and enjoy life more.
Combined with the breath, we retrain you how to move well again. I say move well “again” because we could all move well as babies. Unfortunately, sitting down, commuting and modern living has seized our body’s ability to move efficiently. We re-train your movement patterns. We build strength from the foundations. By taking this approach our clients have reduced and even eliminated life-long pain. It has enabled them to move once more and pursuit physical adventure.
