Dubai Business Health Retreat
Who’s Jef Geys
I specialize in fatigue, burnout, stress, physical training, nutrition, supplementation and increasing mental resilience. I have successfully treated Olympic athletes. I have decided to extrapolate my experience and knowledge. So that is why I have established a treatment program for healthy lifestyle adepts. For those who are concerned about their health and want to in top shape. As a Msc. Sports Physiotherapist, ACE Health Coach and author of “Rest is the New Sport”, I start with the following premise: the body must first be fully equipped and in good condition before effort. We test physical, hormonal, mental and emotional fatigue. Based on the test results, I advise on how to increase energy levels and find a balance between load and recovery. My guidance focuses on different areas, from food to sports and time management.
The emotional, physical and mental aspects of the person are linked. It is useless for people who are mentally tired, to attend a management course. You can’t expect to capitalize from it, if you can´t focus. First, you need help to manage your stress and physical problems. Then you can truly benefit from training, courses and physical activity. Obviously, there is no significant evolution in a fatigued person. First step is to tackle this, then the sky is not the limit.
During this 8-day trip I will take you on a journey where you rediscover your own body from different angles. You will learn how to perform, how to recover and heal using your full potential. I will create awareness of how you have been treating yourself without being judgmental. And if your actions are indeed coherent with your thoughts and feelings, or not.
What will we be testing during this Dubai Business Health Retreat
We test specific physiological systems to define Mental, Physical and Hormonal fatigue. Today in average 70% of the people suffer from any kind of fatigue.
Test – find – solve it.
