Fitness Behavior Expert Dan Nguyen Empowers People to Create Health and Wellness from Within
More than two-thirds of U.S. adults are overweight or obese, despite all the fads and trends in diet and exercise aimed at getting people fit. And even those who work out regularly can get stuck on a fitness plateau, far short of the results they seek.
Go to the gym seven days a week like Fitness Behavior Expert Dan Nguyen (pronounced WIN), and you will see people doing the same exercises over and over who are just maintaining their level of fitness or even losing ground. Why is it people can work out and diet religiously and still get stuck?
"It has to do with the visualization – people go to the gym and they go through their routine with no focus, no intention behind it," Dan says.
Dan is an authority on the mind-muscle connection. At age 40, Dan has stayed in the top levels of fitness (and the single digits in body fat) for 20 years using this approach.
"As the mindset is, the body becomes," he says. "To achieve the healthy body you want, you have to change the way you think, the way you feel and the way you behave. Everything starts with a change in your mindset."
Dan's revelation about the power of the mind in health and fitness grew out of his experiences growing up. Dan and his family immigrated to the U.S. from Vietnam when he was 8 years old. As a child he was bullied and picked on as a skinny kid, and later when he gained weight but not muscle (this master of rock-hard abs was once a pudgy teen with a "Buddha belly!"), deciding "enough is enough," Dan studied everything he could get his hands on about losing weight and getting fit. Trying different exercises and diets, he was able to lose weight. But then he would lose motivation and gain it back in the same unhealthy cycle repeated by so many Americans.
Believing that the mind holds the keys to permanent change, Dan studied hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to become a Master Practitioner of NLP and a certified hypnotherapist by the Association for Integrative Psychology (AlP). He also earned certification as a trainer with the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM).
Armed with knowledge, skills and his enthusiasm to help others, Dan developed a program that combines physical exercise with the power of the mind to help people achieve lifetime fitness. He has coached many others to help them achieve their fitness goals and practices what he preaches. He works out seven days a week, has played beach volleyball for 20 years and meditates (in an ice bath!) every day. He can discuss topics such as:
- How to Stop Procrastinating
- Creating Healthy Habits Through Visualization
- The Mind-Muscle Connection for Rock-Hard Abs
"Once the internal part of your thinking and behavioral system begins to work in the right way, it begins to create the impulse within you to build and maintain your external ideal – your body the way it should be," Dan says.
