Origins of "Lifestyle Insights"a
new interactive behavioral assessment report and Personal Workbook
for fitness and wellness enthusiasts and their trainers, coaches
In the early 1990's, Deby Harper, the original designer of Lifestyle
Insights, and a long-time consultant in the fitness
and corporate wellness arenas, came to a very important conclusion:
Fitness, wellness, weight loss and similar programs can only be effective and accomplish an individual's goals if that individual has three thing...
HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A WORLD-CLASS ATHLEtE WITHOUT WORLD-CLASS MOTIVATION AND COACHING? AND AN ENVIRONMENT THAT SUITED AND SUPPORTED THAT ATHLETE'S WORK EFFORT?
- A personal commitment to changing behaviors to accomplish those goals;
- The knowledge and information required to achieve their objectives; and
- An environment and counseling that reinforces the knowledge and behavior required for success.
And you don't have to be a world-class athlete to have ambitious
goals to lose weight, improve fitness and wellness, reduce stress,
and all the other objectives related to fitness and exercise
programs! So, how can consumers, weekend athletes and even age-group
competitors find a resource to help them with their knowledge
of those important personal behavioral tendencies and motivational
Luckily, Deby had the answer at home. Her husband, Brad harper was a professional psychologist, management consultant and executive coach, who had spent every day of his career working on similar behavioral and motivational issues...only in the corporate world, not in the gym. Brad's experience in using professional tools to measure behavioral trendencies...how to help employees and their managers understand how to work together better...and enjoy it more...and Deby's experience in the fitness world, would provide the basis of a new technology for the fitness industry.
Working together, the Harpers licensed based technology from
Target Training International LLC, the leading technology in
assessment of behavioral tendencies, and developed Lifestyle
Insights. It has been in development and test for more
than ten years, and is now available in a new, online, fully
interactive process that provides important insights into behavior,
motivation and coaching characteristics for individuals. Lifestyle
Insights is designed for personal use by fitness enthusiasts,
and for professional trainers and coaches to use with clients
The Harpers have also added additional management resources
and an advisory team to Lifestyle Insights. It will be marketed
to individual fitness enthusiasts, to professional trainers
and coaches for use in their client training programs, to corporate
wellness programs and spas.
