Go Solo interview with Behavioural Personal Trainer entrepreneur

Coaching Unique niche & Journey.

I felt honoured to be a part of this wonderful support system for small company entrepreneurs. With a particular niche in assisting people in single parent families, my approach to improving the body comes second to enhancing the mental health.I want to dispel the myth that "simply going to the gym" will suffice. To make a permanent change. It is simply not true.Particularly when dealing with considerably more serious concerns. Revealing and confronting them will strengthen not just your body but also your relationships.

I empathize with what you're going through

"If you don't go within, you go without" - Neale Donald Walsh-

  • "Motivation" has a thing called a "snap back effect". Meaning it is not a long lasting feeling nor is it a permanent one. If it were the case everyone on earth would be happy, fit and healthy.

  • Shame, Guilt, and self-sabotage takes over "Motivation" even before you start.

  • 95% of behaviour in your daily tasks is subconscious. Only 5% is conscious!

  • With an average of 57 000 thoughts a day, are your thoughts always supportive, self-empowering and encouraging?

  • IllumiNate coachings is about utilizing a realistic approach on mental health to shed light on negative habits and unhealthy behaviours.

  • Counselling is a process in which the client wishes to achieve personal growth in their life and overcome challenges and obstacles that they may be encountering.

  • Acting as a guide in enabling the client to overcome their obstacles and challenges for themselves and where appropriate provided structure and method to the process of analyzing the challenge and aiding the client in developing strategies and ways of thinking to accomplish this change.

Who is behind IllumiNate?

Inside the idea

Driven to be in the service of others, Nathanael "Heat" Semajuste created "IllumiNate Coachings".A personal trainer/counsellor and creator of the IllumiNate program. When I created this program, I was in a place in my life where many of you are currently; depressed, aimless, and purposeless. I spent many of those days procrastinating and deflecting what needed to be addressed. As time went by, these issues became too heavy to bear. It affected my personal relationships, my finances, my mental well-being, and my health through unhealthy weight gain. It was not until I was able to have a reflective look at my destructive patterns and behaviours; this in turn, forced me to challenge my own beliefs and conventions. And through this journey of self discovery, I’ve acquired many tools that will help you achieve your own goals and improve your overall well-being.
