V ART OF WELLNESS » BeFIT™
Christopher Vlaun’s BeFit Method™ is a multi-modal cross training program that teaches people of all fitness levels to actualize their innate, athletic potential. By incorporating natural resistance movements, nurturing agility, flexibility, strength and power, this method focuses on liberation and transformation from the inside out.
Incorporating an outdoor training circuit, The BeFit Method utilizes a variety of training modalities that dramatically improve joint stability and internal alignment, creating a solid core of symmetry, harmonized motion and inner balance. To ensure maximum results, BeFit routines are performed on the sand, trail, or grass. These natural elements trigger aggressive calorie burn while accelerating weight loss and muscle tone.
Training in an outdoor environment, without the artificial sensory distractions of a gym, is one of the cornerstones of the BeFit philosophy. Natural settings create an ideal opportunity to bring the focus back to the specific mind/body connection of the individual, making them aware of their breath, their heartbeat, their rhythm – and the fitness they were born to have.
