Hello, my name is Rick Hammond and I would like to be your healthcoach! I grew up in a suburb of Rochester, NY
and have lived in Bergen County for about twenty-five years. Long ago, I was a jazz composer and arranger and worked for
fifteen years in the music business as an audio engineer, producer, and electrical engineer. I have also worked as a personal
and private chef during my time in northern New Jersey and have always been interested in health and nutrition. Personally,
I have had symptoms of IBS since my early thirties and have experimented with every diet under the sun. At this point
I follow a high-seafood paleo diet that is higher in carbs during the summer and much lower in carbs during
the peak winter months...
For now, I am offering clients health advice based on human evolution to do with
mitigating the adverse effects of our modern lifestyle and environment. I am also pursuing a
Master's Degree in holistic nutrition
so I can be board certified by the National Association of Nutrition Professionals in
2017, which will allow me to add nutrition counseling to my health coaching services in most states. For exercise, I continue to
Liu Seong Royal Kung-fu
Master Joseph Salomone
which includes training in Shaolin Ch'uan Fa,
Pa Kua Chang, Hung Gar Gung-fu, and combat T'ai Ch'i along with many Indonesian fighting systems...
