Why you should follow this program

There's no one-size-fits-all when it comes to a healthy diet. Each of us has unique bodies and needs, and what may fuel one person with energy may be depleting for another. We won't ask you to adhere to a strict protocol such as paleo, intermittent fasting, or keto. We also won't impose guidelines about what to avoid and when to eat.
We don't promote the diet mentality at all. You should feel empowered by the fact that you can make these choices for yourself!

In this program, we'll focus on evidence-based nutritional principles that directly impact the inflammation in your body—and, therefore, your focus, energy, and well-being.
There are certain habits most of us can develop that delay the onset of age-related disease and discomfort. And those are what we'll focus on here—not restriction, willpower, or rules around what you can eat. It's about learning to love what you eat, becoming more aware of what's good for your body… and having fun with it!

Nils' background

Nils is a versatile individual who began his journey as a professional athlete, excelling as a ballet dancer at the London and Paris Opera houses before honing his skills in martial arts during a two-year stint at a Sports University in China. Transitioning from athleticism, he ventured into entrepreneurship, owning a gym for two years before leveraging his expertise to spearhead the well-being programs for SkillsGym Health at SkillsGym two years ago.

Personal life

Nils embodies the principles of our SkillsGym Health programs in his daily life. His routine includes tailored workouts, breathwork, and cold exposure, leveraging his expertise as a certified Wim Hof instructor. Additionally, he prioritizes quality time with his partner Sarah and his son. To maintain his sanity, Nils seeks solace in nature in his beloved 4x4, preferably exploring the wilderness in Alaska.

Fun fact

Fun fact about Nils: Despite his reputation as a disciplined athlete committed to his daily routine, he also embraces the 70% rule for building a healthy lifestyle.

We'll leave it up to him to share more about that 30% in his programs!
