What is a BiG Head
does it mean to be a BiG Head?
Being a BiG Head is about an exaggerated belief in the personal responsibility for and importance of ones own health.
As a BiG Head I believe:
- In taking personal responsibility for my health and
wellness. I recognize that there is a fitting
role for medical professionals and fitness experts
in my life, but understand that they can not “fix” me
or do the work for me.
- In taking personal responsibility to resolve the
environmental issues that affect my health and wellness
on a personal level, such as being proactive in the
food choices I allow in my home.
- That life is too short to stress about the small
stuff, so I do what I can, the best I can, and seek
to enjoy life to its fullest. Things are not
always going to be easy, but I know that things worth
having in life are worth working hard for.
- That health and wellness is a way of life, not a
one-time destination. I expect there to be ups
and downs along the way and know I can only reach
my goals with the support and help of others. Recognizing
the role of and need for a positive and supportive
community, I do my best to encourage and educate others
in reaching their goals.
- That true fitness and wellness comes in all shapes,
sizes, and activities. I recognize the beauty
in the diversity of body images and abilities. I
applaud the effort of all who are willing to take control
of their lives, because I know how hard
it can be. I exercise and put my body into motion,
not to look like an airbrushed cover model or steroid
freak, but to be the best that I can be physically

BiG Head Reviews:
"As a golf conditioning expert, the easy
part is showing a client how a movement or change to an exercise program
will help their game. Often the challenge is trying to convince them
that a particular movement will not affect performance negatively!
The 'Not Another Guru' is the best I've seen at explaining simple
concepts and principles regarding movement and all aspects of health,
and dispelling ALL of the popular misconceptions regarding fitness.

“After hitting a plateau and staying there for four months I read the chapters on interval training and plateaus, after that the weight just came off. Hank’s
examples and illustrations just make it so easy to understand.”
