Stress Management Institute for Health and Fitness Professionals
Begin your journey as a Mind/Body Fitness Practitioner™!
According to the American Medical Association, stress is the number one proxy killer accounting for
90% of chronic diseases around the world. Chronic stress can cause premature death from heart disease, diabetes, and other health conditions. Stress can also affect memory and kill brain cells in the brain's hippocampus region. The American Institute of Stress states that 120,000 individuals die per year due to work-related stress every year. Healthcare costs are currently at an all-time high at an average of $190 billion annually. Chronic stress is also directly linked to the six leading causes of death: heart disease, cancer, lung conditions, accidents, cirrhosis of the liver, and suicide.

The multidimensional Health Promotion and Fitness
Training Model™ (MHPFT Model)
The Stress Management Institute for Health and Fitness Professionals™ has developed the Multidimensional Health Promotion and Fitness Training Model™ (MHPFT Model) for stress management in the fitness industry. This model was created out of the need for health and fitness professionals to realize that chronic stress needs to be placed in the same category as other chronic diseases and treated in the same manner. The model serves as a roadmap to guide Mind/Body Fitness Practitioners™ when working with clients to prevent chronic disease and to appropriately work with clients who have a chronic disease due to stress.
