“I decided to join this retreat to try something different than I’d normally do, and something not so hard. I chose to work with you because I followed you on social networks and l knew that you were movement focused. I was at peace before starting the retreat, especially after receiving the schedule. I was happy to have small sessions, mixed with Balinese lifestyle, and vacation activities during the retreat. For sure my biggest challenge was the cold immersion, but I overcame it with your support and the support of other participants. After the retreat, I felt good! I stopped the cold immersion 😉 but I kept my own morning routine (same as yours based on meditation, breathing, and movement). My advice to anyone wanting to take this retreat: Do it! It’s not tough at all. Depending on your level you can learn new skills and improve the ones you already have with the attention to quality and details.”
“Over the last two weeks moved all these rocks from the driveway to the lawn, stacked them, and then planted all these baby plants… and my back feels fine – strong even! This is 100% due to skills I learned from Nathan Amado and Original Human Movement. Thank you!”
I can’t even begin to tell you how much better I feel after starting this program. It’s hard to even describe. I feel so much stronger, and more mobile, and I’m just getting started!
“I got certified yesterday as a MovNat Level 1 Trainer. Nathan has been coaching me for 3 months and has a great deal of responsibility for me successfully getting certified. I really enjoy having him as my coach. Nathan is really nice and down to earth. He keeps it simple, always with a positive and encouraging attitude. He has always nice words and is genuinely here to help you. He is available and always open to propositions, always ready to adapt so that YOU get the most of the coaching.
If you are hesitating about coaching, like I was before, worrying about the price (or something else), I can only tell you that I really don’t regret my decision of giving it a try. I can recommend Nathan without hesitation! It’s really both a pleasure and a great opportunity to have him as a coach!
Thank you, Nathan! Glad to be able to continue progressing with you!”
“Nate is a great motivator, and so positive and affirming. But I like that he’s real with me too, lol. He really pays attention to form and detail and lets me know when I’m not. He also listens to my goals and between-session movement challenges, and remembers these conversations week to week. We’ve been working together for a little over two months and I’ve been really surprised by my improvement. I’m trying things now that I didn’t even do as a kid, and it is playful and fun. And hard! I’m in my forties and have been pretty sedentary for the last decade. If you are worried about your age or slothitude, don’t be. Nate will meet you where you are and you will do amazing things.”
“You know because of you and the morning movement routine… many other movements are attainable to me in my mind. I see it and I do it. I no longer fear.“
“I just want to say that after only 12 workouts I feel so much stronger and leaner and more naturally fit. I knew there would good results but I didn’t expect to get the positive results I’m getting. It’s crazy. Nothing like this happened when I was doing traditionally weightlifting, which I don’t think I could ever do again! It’s so motivating to see my progress – imagine what’ll happen after 3, 6 and 12 months. Thanks for everything. Really pleased with your coaching and this online coaching program!”
“It became evident to me that I could be moving better. While I am a good yoga practitioner, I was also lacking functional strength and mobility (I always think what I would need to do in a zombie apocalypse, and the answer is not triangle pose ?). Y’all. This video captures a huge moment for me… My first time to be able to lift my feet off the ground in a horizontal hang!! This all has been made possible by working with Nathan Amado, who is a certified MovNat™ trainer, and is also taking Katy Bowman’s 52 week biomechanics course. He is helping me to be stronger in a real way. I’ve been crawling, lifting, balancing, squatting, hanging… I can’t wait to see what the next step is! This work is helping change my dialogue about what it means to be strong. This is all about readiness and resiliency.”
“I have worked with Nathan for the past 8+ weeks. In that time, he has revamped my entire way of living!
From nutrition to healthy routines, he has the tools to make a better you!
I thought I was healthy before working with Nathan, he changed my whole outlook on fitness and nutrition.
If you are coachable and willing to have an open mind, then please contact him today.”
“Hey Nate! In honor of our 10th session together, I just wanted to thank you for all your insights and patient encouragement. I feel I’ve improved much more in the last months than I did in the previous years trying to learn MovNat on my own. You have literally coached me into doing things I seriously didn’t think I could do! You are awesome, dude!”
“Your morning ritual is dope.”
“I just want to say that it is never to late to change to a healthier lifestyle. I am 55 years young. In February 2017 I decided to change what I eat and start moving. I noticed when I slipped and ate something unhealthy I wouldn`t feel good. I can tell you today that I feel great on the inside. I can’t describe how good I feel 2 years and 3 months later. I have lost weight slow and steady, the right way.”
“Bro the last 5 weeks have been phenomenal. Best shape of my life. Thanks for all your help.”
“Nathan is VERY knowledgeable. He cares about long term sustainable health and fitness. He is very passionate about helping others and goes the extra mile for his clients. I’d definitely recommend him to anyone looking to excel in Jiu Jitsu or general health and mobility!”
“I have worked together with Nathan online because we live far from each other and I wish we can meet from up close some day because he is an amazing and authentic guy. Not only that but he has also the experience and expertise when it comes down to Health & Fitness based on natural movements. I highly recommend him!!”
“My boys, 11 & 13, love their movement sessions with Nate. It’s great to see what they learn carry over to everyday life. Both have shown mental and physical growth since the sessions started, and Nate has been a fantastic coach for both boys. I highly recommend Nate for all of your ‘live like a human’ needs.”
“Our boys have learned so much working with Nate these last few months. He is encouraging and motivates them to push themselves. The lessons are ones that they will take with them for a lifetime! Thank you so much Nathan Amado for spreading and sharing your positivity with us. It is worth mentioning that my boys are 11 and 13. Due to our schedules we can only meet early on Saturday mornings (8am) and they LOVE IT! No complaints when we go.”
“It’s been a good while since I’ve been to a movement workshop, however my experience with it was wonderful. You get really good and very functional movements whether it be for work, daily life, or if you just want to do it for fun! You also get to learn some pretty cool breathing techniques, and get a good workout from it! So give it a shot and do a workshop!”
“Attending this movement seminar revealed to me how I complicate my daily movements by adding unnecessary things to it. Me and my daughter, who was 6 years old at the time, attended the seminar and she had a blast. Nate told us just to refer back to what children do and how they move naturally. The instruction was incredible, simple, and easy to follow. I’m limited in my range of motion in my left shoulder and Nate showed some stretching and some hanging that allows for me now to be able to move about without so much restriction. This class ROCKS, I highly recommend it for those who are looking to get back into fitness and those who want to become more familiar with their bodies!”
“I have a million and one things to say that are AWESOME! You’ve really helped me build mobility and confidence to use my left shoulder from what I learned in that class.”
“I’ve struggled with hip pain for 3 years. To assuage the pain, I tried medication, chiropractors, yoga, and anything else I could think of — to no avail. One session with Nate gave me 3 days of pain free movement. The only 3 days I’ve had without pain in years. Give this man a chance to help you.”
“Nate has been training me for two years, and it’s been life changing. I am much stronger in lots of ways, and am doing things I never thought I would be able to do. Every time I see him, I learn valuable information about myself, and am feeling more able to handle a zombie apocalypse. I highly recommend Nate for anyone who is looking to begin, or add to, their movement practice.”
“I’ve trained with Nate for several months now and I would have to describe him as a phenomenal trainer. He’s exceedingly patient and encouraging, insightful and helpful, and generally just a great guy. If you are on the fence or just curious about this whole “MovNat” thing, I highly recommend training with Nate.”
