After 14 years in fitness business as PowerHouse Kickboxing Inc, my husband and I have decided to combine our work. He brings his experience in fitness and athletic development and I bring my experience in holistic nutrition and integrative health.
K’s (aka Coach K or Konstantin) life’s’ work has always been physical training. With a degree in Exercise Science and a lifelong passion for martial arts, he dedicated 40 years of his life to physical training and development of a mind/body connection.
For us growing up in Russia, health management was a very holistic experience. I for one was a very sick child and my mom and grandma did everything they could to help me heal and regain my health through natural holistic medicine. And so when I was diagnosed with autoimmune conditions back in 2008 while nursing our 2nd daughter, I refused to take prescription drugs and I it did not seem right to be taking meds for the rest of my life. I knew there was another way. And that is when my curiosity about the healing power of the diet became an absolute obsession.
With time, over the last 8 years, K’s interests and mine grew more and more intertwined. Where we would not only be focusing on physical health and fitness, but also an overall wellbeing and longevity based on nutrition, mindfulness practice, fitness and fortification of the physical body function through a variety of training modalities (cold/heat training, acupressure, and more) – 108STRONG was born.
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity” – definition of Health by WHO (World Health Organization)
Health and wellbeing are interconnected. Wellbeing is the state of physical, spiritual, emotional and mental health, a state of balance, resilience, and wholeness. And health is so much more than just the absence of disease, it is a feeling of an overall wellbeing, vitality, wellness.
The actions and steps that we take throughout our life will help us move closer to health, to longevity. Not to merely live longer, but stay vibrant, agile, strong and sharp well into old age. The purpose of this website is to compile the latest research, share information, and our personal experience, to empower others to make healthy, mindful living an easy and natural part of their daily life.
The goal of 108STRONG is to support individuals interested in vitality into the old age, disease prevention, longevity of function, not just a lifespan, those looking to build up, restore and strengthen their immunity, get healthy again and prevent further deterioration of their health.
