Notice: Please do NOT enrol on this course on impulse, thinking you might watch it later. Maybe show an interest on impulse, yes, but before you enrol, watch the Preview videos, read the Course Description and then make a decision. If you then enrol then please start the course as soon as possible. Watch the lectures, look at the workbooks and join in the discussions. Joining my courses is a serious business and I want you to get the most out of your study – but I also want you to enjoy the course.

That is why I am asking that you only enrol because you really want to and that you start the course intending to make full use of all the resources.

You will be very welcome.

There are plenty of 'Health and Fitness' courses on Udemy - dozens and dozens. BUT this one is unique and the opening lectures explain why. No other course duplicates this. PLUS there are several workbooks included - current as at May 2021.

This is EIGHT courses in one:

1. Benchmarks

2. Routines - morning and evening

3. Intermittent - fasting/movement

4. Food & drink

5. Exercise

6. Sleep (and become a Sleep Consultant)

7. Lifestyle medicine

8. Holman Protocol

In short: total health (+ workbook on Holistic Medicine)

You will learn about:

  • Losing weight

  • Key biomarkers

  • Key tests to have - and then check back to see progress

  • Benchmarks set by YOU - and then check back

  • Sleep

  • Intermittent movement

  • Intermittent fasting

  • Fitness

  • Healthy eating

  • More Sleep

  • How to optimise your own health

This is a unique course owing in part to its origins (Wisdom of the Crowds) and in part to its application. The Holman Protocol is a collection of ideas, studies and interpretations that will enable you to regain health, to regain wellness - in short to take control over your life - and become superhuman!

Through a series of lectures - some quite long - and with reference to experts, studies and published articles the student is presented with a wide range of advice over the key areas that affect our lives. Areas such as exercise, sleep, stress, diet, risks, routine, fasting and the measurement thereof, are all covered. But this is an individual journey, not a prescription.  Students will be presented with topics to consider and homework to take action over. 

The greater participation from the student, the greater the progress.

If you follow this long course the following will happen:

1. You WILL lose weight (if weightloss is needed)

2. You WILL get fit(ter)

3. You WILL get healthier

4. This will improve all aspects of your life ( including sex life)

5. You will become Superhuman!

  • It is probably not overstating it to say that lives may well be saved. 

  • This is a very detailed course - longer than many many other courses...it's your life, make the choice.

Well this course is very informative and it basically teach the the importance to mental health and natural health how it’s ties together.

Chana11 November 2019

I must thank you, Chris, for telling me about this course, It is a real eye opener. The first thing we did is to do tests that we didn't do in years, and c hange many of our daily eating and living practices. I think this course is a MUST for anyone who cares about their health!

Sandra27 September 2019

You are a wonderful, amazing teacher ? thank you for all these gorgeous informations?God bless you always ?

George19 May 2019

This is an extremely unusual course. So far I am only at the Wisdom of Crowds section but already references to books and further reading etc make me want to learn more. I just posted a comment in the Q/A section and was very very disappointed to see that mine was one of only two comments and yet there are 5000 students enrolled. This, I think, is a great pity because this course seems - potentially - to be life changing!

Natalie31 March 2019

I'm not sure yet what the course is all about, and what the Holman protocol is at all. Kind of confused......

Gladys1 September 2018

Excellent course. The instructor was informed, the material interesting and the course was easy to follow and understand. I plan on incorporating several of the recommend health tips into my daily health routine.

Cathy26 June 2018

I think it is a good match for me. It is showing how I can lose weight and be fit physically and mentally.

Jane20 June 2018

Lifestyle changes bring many benefits, but for some knowing what the term 'lifestyle changes' actually means is the first step. This course provides the student with a comprehensive detailed path-way through the various stages and steps associated with lifestyle change which could, if adhered to, see the student lead a long, happy and illness free life. Highly recommended.

Emil7 June 2018

Awesome course, a whole amount of healthy habits to work on, understand and implement them. some of the ritual/habits I've learned from other courses, some are new for me or in other form. Many thanks!

I wasn't going to review but as I went through the vid and transcript it got so bad at times I felt I had no option. It's quite slow and boring - I sped up the spoken part. Transcription is very inaccurate and makes for disjointed reading not least because there's no punctuation. It is visually uninteresting an too long is spent looking at static screens with lots of black. If this is how the rest of the course is I may not bother.

Abhishek25 May 2018

The content is awesome because it has forced me not to hit the snooze button, for the past 7 days! It reinstates the good values and principles that we have senselessly trounced over! The "OTHER" paid courses on the Udemy are slightly shorter, slightly fast-paced and use graphics, and animation to make lessons interactive. I think this course takes a lot of time in "coming to the point". Also, the voice over seems low energy and slow-paced (as if contemplating). Hope to get more from you ...... Good Soul

Samantha22 May 2018

You can tell the instructor cares about the health of people and gives a lot of example on how to stay healthy. The structure is clear he also explains a lot of meaning of the complicated words they use as a health measurement.

Fatimah17 May 2018

I am only on the second lesson. I had trouble becoming engaged in the beginning of the course not because of the course but because I have medical issues that affect my ability to focus. I usually never give a five star rating in the very beginning until I can engage myself on the course material. I have started becoming more engaged in the course even if my work is so busy I don't get a lot of time for it. I want the things the course offers. My entire adult life has been facing illness and depression. I lost a large part of myself when chemotherapy wiped away my memories and ability to focus. I was a published poet before my second round of cancer. Now I would have to compare my brain to a butterfly. I start one thing and then I flutter off to do something else then another. My one thing that made it hard was that your voice is rather monotone. It can make me sleepy if I am trying to listen after waking up already tired. I may be slow but I am fully intending to take your course to heart and hopefully bring at least a part of my old self back.

C.K12 April 2018

Chris is a true Renaissance man. If optimizing various dimensions of your life appeals to you then this course is for you.

Dirk4 April 2018

If life is about learning how to live a lovable und liveable life with intent, this course is a real good one to start with. And while inscribing there's one good lesson to be learned: The best things in life are free! <3
