Training for longevity, Simmy Tan

"I am coming into my 5th month of online training with Olivier Goetgeluck. 5 months ago, I had no concept of what moving well means. While I still enjoyed my training back then, I often felt exhausted, tired, and I was constantly battling with pain and aches, I was always anxious and stressed

I knew I needed to change but I did not know where to start, although I’ve built my habit of “working out” regularly, having a coach provides the structure and the accountability I needed. By chance, I came across Olivier’s postings, I was enlightened by his blog posts, and he seem to exudes a maturity way beyond his age.

I’ve given very careful consideration upon hiring his service, not just because it is an investment, also because I know it will be completely different than what I’m used to. I was so afraid of change to be honest, but I am so glad I took the step.

Olivier has introduced many new concepts to me, far beyond what the mainstream fitness community provides. I used to follow along with the trend and just did what looks “cool”. I could never pictured myself practicing stillness let alone sticking to it, I never felt motivated to do mobility, I never wanted to take a day off and “relax”. I have to admit the shift was slow, and I took my time. Throughout the past couple of months, I’ve certainly given a lot of thought into training for longevity. I can’t quite put my finger on it, I often felt more intellectually challenged, I associate the gains I’ve made are more mental than physical.

I can’t thank you enough Olivier, I am confident and certain that I will continue to implement your teachings as I move forward in my life."

Vegetative Training taught me how to slow my life down on and off of the court, Codi Miller (pro basketball player)

"During my time in Belgium I never thought I would be taught how to do something that I have been doing my entire life.. 'Just breathe,' Olivier said to me… During the months of January and February I was going through a tough time. It finally hit me that i was in a foreign country alone and this mental frustration showed on the court as well during those months.. That was until I heard the words, 'Just breathe.' 

Now I have always been conscious of the benefits of doing particular breathing techniques but I have never seen anything work as fast as the breathing and other techniques that I did with Olivier Goetgeluck.

Vegetative Training (VGT) is the name of the method. Now I still don’t know all of the science behind it but I do know after my first session I felt amazing and from that day I have been hooked to it.

After a few sessions of doing this breathing technique my spirits began to lift along with my level of play. The first three to four weeks working on breathing, in my opinion, lead me to win three MVP's in four weeks. What was most fascinating about my style of play during that time is that I was producing more but I was trying 10 times less.

The VGT taught me how to slow my life down on and off of the court and this gave me the ability to make smarter and more conscious decisions throughout my day and throughout the game. The moment I stopped trying to control everything was when I finally had the breakthrough in my game and in myeline that I knew was coming, I just didn’t know when.

I recommend anyone who wants to elevate their game no matter the sport or just someone who wants to enhance their life experience to work with Olivier Goetgeluck. He is an extremely kind, nonjudgmental and charismatic teacher. He will admit that he doesn’t have all of the answers but it will for sure seem like he does.

If you are struggling with trying to keep up to the pace that this world moves, which seems to be moving at 100% every second of the day Olivier will teach you multiple techniques on how to slow down just a little bit.

What I love about his teachings is that all we have to do is learn how to breathe properly and major changes our life will start to present themselves.. 

So thank you again Olivier Goetgeluck for teaching a 23 year young adult on how to breathe again."

Bewegen is een middel geen doel, Jan Adins

"Olivier, ik voelde van bij onze eerste ontmoeting een diepgaande interesse in wie ik ben en in het parcours die mij bracht bij mijn essentie en persoonlijke missie: 'De mens bewust maken van zijn/haar verantwoordelijkheid over zijn/haar leven.' Het was alsof je het NV IK principe al jaren kende, en eigenlijk pas je het (on)bewust systematisch toe. Bewegen is een middel geen doel. Een zielsverwantschap was duidelijk; en van daaruit kon je de 'Formats' toepassen als middel en zelfs de ontbrekende dimensie in mijn praktijk als ondernemerscoach. De parallel tussen het lichaam in al haar dimensies, bewegen en ondernemen vanuit de NV IK hebben we tijdens al onze sessies geëxploreerd en uitgediept. Van daaruit groeit er systematisch een uniek ondernemers-coaching concept dat beetje per beetje zijn weg naar de juiste doelgroep vindt. Heel veel dank hiervoor Olivier."
