The NHS helps people to survive,
Health by Science helps people to thrive
Itâ€™s often said that your genes are like a loaded gun, but itâ€™s your lifestyle that pulls the trigger.
And when it comes to your lifestyle there are â€˜Five Pillarsâ€™ which interact to offer the best preventative medicine we all have at our disposal.
These five pillars are:
Helping our clients improve these five areas can dramatically enhance their body
composition, health, and performance â€“ both physically and mentally.
For more information about how these five pillars can influence your goals, read our blog.
Our unique approach to coaching is underpinned by the key elements of Science and Self-empowerment through our highly tailored, Personalised Service.
Science is the best tool we have for understanding the question â€˜What works?â€™
At its very core, what makes scienceÂ scienceÂ is that it is self-correcting. Science is not loyal to any ideas, and if a better idea comes along then the old one gets updated.
This is the principle which underpins our approach to Personal Training, Physiotherapy, and Strength and Conditioning.
To ensure that our service continuously improves and remains the best in the industry we use Improvement Science, which is about finding out how to improve and make changes in the most effective way. Improvement Science is advocated by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, an independent, not-for-profit organization based in Boston, and recognised a leading innovator, in health and health care improvement worldwide.
We believe that a sustainable approach to behaviour change is critical to long-term good health.
While our clients understand â€˜whatâ€™ they should be doing, they often struggle with â€˜howâ€™ to do it consistently.
Thatâ€™s where we come inâ€¦working with our clients using a habit-based approach based on their goals, preferences and current lifestyle.
We empower them to take control of their health permanently, which has been scientifically proven to be a better way of learning and maintaining good results.
Who We Are
We are Scotlandâ€™s first Personal Training/Physiotherapy Social Enterprise, and we strongly believe that our social enterprise model could offer a new paradigm for physiotherapy and personal training in the UK.
The profit we make goes towards our social purpose, which is helping people who have
been discharged from the NHS but still have rehab potential.
We are a team of university graduates passionate about highlighting the importance of science and changing lifestyles to help maximise peopleâ€™s wellbeing and minimise the risk of preventable illness. You can meet the teamÂ here.
We believe in science. Believing is easy. Being sceptical is hard. As healthy sceptics, we do the research before helping our clients to apply the evidence using the principles of sustainable behaviour change.
Our goal is to help our clients achieve their goals as easily and sustainably as possible, whether that be a stroke survivor trying to walk 5km or an elite athlete aiming to run 500km.
We often share the success stories of our clients on social media to help inspire others to recover from debilitating conditions.
