What if your performance now is only 80 percent of what you are capable of?
Hintsa coaches will often ask you: “What if your performance now is only 80 percent of what you are capable of?” To help you achieve your full potential, Hintsa uses a concept called the ‘Circle of Better Life’. A combination of general health, physical activity, nutrition, recovery, biomechanics and mental energy, it teaches that care and attention must be given to each one of these six components. At the centre of the model is Core, your inner motivation to reach sustainable change.

The methodology started a long way from the current headquarters in Geneva, over 3,000 miles away when the late orthopaedic and trauma surgeon Aki Hintsa was working as a missionary doctor in Africa in the ’90s. It was in Ethiopia that he studied the training regimes of elite long-distance runners: noticing how they adopted an intuitively holistic attitude to health and wellbeing. He began to wonder how such an approach could be applied in a broader context and from there developed the Hintsa technique.
