Who are the workshops for:

>>> Workshops are for people who have lost physical fitness due to being overweight and find it more difficult to perform many ordinary activities

>>> Workshops are intended for people who have mobility problems due to being overweight. Fast walking, running, or jumping is hard or impossible for them

>>> Workshops are intended for people who have health problems due to being overweight and want to return to fitness and normal functioning

>>> Workshops are intended for people who have never had or have lost the ability to correct nutrition, which led them to become overweight

>>> Workshops are intended for people who, due to being overweight, have too large body dimensions. They want to improve their figure, become lighter, smaller, fitter, and dress in more fitting clothes in a smaller size.

>>> Workshops are intended for people who want to learn how to live anew. Enjoy a lifestyle where food brings joy and pleasure and proper movement ensures health and strength

>>> Workshops are for people who value a natural way of life. Both, the nutrition system and exercise system are completely based on the natural approach of daily living. Nutrition is based on conscious choosing ingredients to prepare tasty and healthy meals avoiding any artificial supplements. The exercise system is based on functional training using own body mass or muscle resistance by using items from the surroundings

>>> Workshops are for people who value the approach of ”saving the planet”. Gaining knowledge of conscious nutrition allows one to use food more wisely, avoiding wastage and respecting any energy and human work required for production

>>> Knowing the system of performing VIA SET allows for saving time and money as well as the planet by reducing the amount of exhaust, and energy and avoiding buying unnecessary training equipment.
