Eivissa – Health, fitness and nutrition with the individual in mind

Staying fit and healthy is an individual journey

Your journey to feeling good about yourself should be one that is insightful, exciting and fun. It should be easy, sustainable and full of discovery.

The solution to feeling great, improving fitness levels and becoming healthier isn’t a one-size fits all.

Whether you feel as though you need to lose weight, work on your body strength, tone and conditioning, recover from an injury or train for a sporting event, the fitness and wellbeing methods will be as different for you as they are for the next person.  It might be that you’ve been told to make some changes by a medical professional or as age or injury takes its toll you want to understand how to improve your nutrition and make healthy choices when it comes to food and drink.

Your mental wellbeing and physical exercise are intertwined and knowing what works for you is a personal journey. Eivissa Health & Fitness are here to support you on this journey with a tailor made programme of health, fitness and nutrition.

With a strong focus on behaviour change coaching our VIP Eivissa Behaviour Change Programme is designed to break down whatever is holding you back from achieving your health, fitness and nutritional goals by working on positive behavioural change and retuning your mindset to one of non-stop achievement.

SPARK TO SUCCESS

CHARITY

ADVOCATE: PAM GREEN

 

Spark to your Success exists to empower young people to become tomorrow’s confident business, community and family leaders by feeling happy ‘in their own skin’.

By working with organisations, charities and projects we know that together we can boost the amazing work and outcomes that they are already achieving.

For many young people, modern life pressures can be immense – the education system, social anxieties, imbalances at home and career stress – to name but a few. Yet, irrespective of these pressures and each individual’s actual abilities or strengths, society in general still judges every young person’s value and worth through the lens of a ‘one-size-fits-all’ academic meritocracy.

This approach works for some, but it can fail far too many. We want to support young people to discover their innate abilities and talents – and not necessarily those generally prescribed by teachers, parents and peers – while nurturing realistic aspirations.

Our mission is to give young people the opportunity to develop high self-worth and inner confidence. We want them to know who they are and what unique talents they have to offer to the world, with a clear direction for their future and a vision of how they can make a positive difference to their relationships and the world around them.

SANDLER TRAINING

SALES TRAINING

ADVOCATE: ROY JOHNSON

 

Roy owns Sandler, a training, coaching and consultancy franchise in Sales. Management and Leadership.

Run from Studio 4 in North Staffordshire. 

Roy currently works with clients who have great products and great people. They typically are concerned that not enough new prospects are being introduced to the company and don’t know why. They are sometimes frustrated that sales cycles are too long but don’t know how to shorten them. Sometimes they are angry that there is price erosion during the sales cycle, but they don’t know what to do about it.

Alternately they may need to manage or lead their company or department and don't know where to start for improvement in these areas.

Sandler is a sales , management and leadership process used by many of the top global companies such as HP, Dell, Boeing, LinkedIn, Oracle as well as many SME’s locally.

Current local clients are often reporting fifty per cent to four hundred per cent growth in sales and profits after working with Roy.

Clients are typically highly qualified and experienced in their field, but sales or management are not their principal areas of expertise.

Current clients include Lawyers, Insolvency Practitioners, Film producers, IT suppliers, Financial services. Typically B2B or long term B2C relationships.

The training can be face to face or virtually from our studios. There will be highly interactive discussions about how buyers buy, how sellers sell and what can go wrong. It is designed to allow attendee interaction and input to cover local sales issues as the audience sees them.

Management and Leadership works in the same fashion.

Roy is an Electrical and Electronic engineer specialising in Manufacturing.

He started working with GEC Automation, globally commissioning and projecting on control projects. Working in diverse industries such as Ceramics, Nuclear Power generation, Water treatment, Defence, Tyre manufacturing, Food and Beverage, Automotive, Pharmaceutical as well as coal and steel heavy industries.

He lectured at Cambridge University for the Manufacturing Engineering department for ten years and helped to set up the Distributed Integrated Automation Laboratory there.

He was a Sales Director and General Manager for Spectris (FTSE SXS), for Europe, the Middle East and Europe.  He has travelled extensively, managing staff, training and globally qualifying and closing deals. The deals were driven at local to international level, across time zones and very long timescales.
