"Building a healthy lifestyle and experiencing optimal health, happiness, and mental well-being doesn't need to be an overwhelming and difficult process. You don't need to go through a ton of programs or books, or test a dozen techniques that don't work. We have deconstructed the process into a few essential habits for you to build."
Nils Maes - Co-founder of SkillsGym Health
Soft skills are everything

Why you should follow this program

As we go about our daily lives, we continuously operate on one of four levels: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. All the other dimensions of life—from work to family to recreation—are a product of these four levels. 
The most fundamental energy source is physical; the most significant is spiritual. Our best energy is pleasant and positive energy, which flows from the perception of opportunity, adventure, and challenge.
Most of us are under-stressed physically and spiritually and overstressed emotionally and mentally. In other words, most of us need to train harder physically (eat, exercise, and sleep better) and spiritually (align our work with our deepest values) and make a point to renew (rest!) ourselves emotionally and mentally for peak performance.

These four types of energy feed off each other:

  • Physical (the quantity of our energy); our diet, exercise, and sleep habits are paramount
  • Emotional (the quality of our energy); experience the positive emotions of approach (enjoyment, challenge, and opportunity), not the negative of avoidance (perception of threat, danger, or fear)
  • Mental (the focus of our energy); bringing the appropriate focus and realistic optimism to work at hand
  • Spiritual (the force of our energy); connection to deeply held values and purpose beyond our self-interest
  • Evidence-based: the best habits for you to build in order to master this skill according to research
  • Tested and approved by thousands of participants
  • Designed for social learning: go through the program with your buddy or team to build in social accountability and support

Master the skill of stress & energy management

We have deconstructed this skill into 3 sub-skills. And you will build one habit, and have one conversation around each sub-skill in a period of 3-6 weeks.
The program consists of a 1-hour webinar to kick-start your 3-6 week practice period in the workflow or in your personal life.

Master the skill step-by-step

You don't need tons of time or willpower to build a new skill. What you do need, is consistency. That's why after the kick-start webinar, you will practice building tiny habits (so small you will have no reason not to do it) in the workflow or in your personal life. You will build this skill habit-by-habit, focusing on 3 sub-skills:


Week 1 - 2 

Build habits for renewal and recovery

Learn about the importance of recovery and choose at least one practice to start building into a regular habit.
#Dr.JimLoehr #EnergyManagement #NervousSystem #RecoveryMoments #4Levels #Physical #Emotional #Mental #Spiritual 


Week 3  - 4  

Hormetic stress


Week 5 - 6 

Choose how you look at life

Reflect on what you are choosing to believe, and whether those beliefs are serving you. Or if it's time to choose another belief.

Meet your trainer

At the kickstart of your 3-6 week skills development program, you will follow a webinar delivered by Nils Maes, co-founder of SkillsGym Health. Here are a few things you might like to know about him:

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.

20+ years of impact

SkillsGym Health uses the same habit-focused method that has become synonymous with SkillsGym's approach. This method has assisted numerous world-class organizations such as Samsung, Deloitte, and Ikea, along with thousands of managers and their teams, in enhancing their soft skills. Now, SkillsGym extends its expertise by offering programs designed to expedite the mastery of 50 essential leadership, team, and well-being skills.

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. Nils believes in sticking to good habits 70% of the time while indulging in less healthy choices for the remaining 30%, adding balance and flexibility to his approach. We'll leave it up to him to share more about that 30% in his programs!
