Greetings! My name is Nathaniel Jordan.
I am a Nationally Certified Health Coach with the American Council on Exercise, and a certified Master Trainer with the National Federation of Professional Trainers. I started my health journey five years ago in October of 2011, after reaching a body-weight of 260 pounds and 30% bodyfat. I utilized the traditional diet of moderation and portion size control combined with vigorous exercise to lose 75 pounds by April of 2012. I continued losing weight until I reached 168 lbs, 4% bodyfat by November of 2012.
Eventually, low-carb portion control dieting became too difficult to maintain, and I began to slowly put weight back on, reaching 195 pounds in May of 2013. It was at this time, I read “Eat to Live” by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, and the information in his book changed my life forever. For the first time in my life, I learned the connection between what we EAT, and disease. As I mastered eating to live, I witnessed the miraculous power of a nutrient-dense plant-RICH diet-style, when I cured myself of high triglycerides, when a Cardiologist was looking to place me on prescription medications. He was shocked when my levels went from over 300mg to under 70mg in just 42 days.
I also cured myself of frequent headaches, and my aching joints got a lot better. I continued diving into the knowledge about the relationship between food and disease, and the more I learned, the more I desired to share my experience and expertise with the world. So in 2014 I became a Certified Personal Trainer, and in August of this year, I became a Certified Health Coach.
In addition to my passion for teaching people about Nutrition, I am an exercise nut. I have always enjoyed exercise from the time I was a child. Even at 260 pounds, I could still do 21 consecutive pull-ups! I am a veteran of the United Stated Marine Corps and was a boxer on the All-Marine Boxing Team for an 8-month stretch from 2006-2007. I served as a Police Officer in the City of St. Louis from 2008-2016, and competed in Guns N Hoses in 2012, after having used boxing as the first exercise of choice to lose all my weight. Currently, I am a competitive powerlifter having won 1st place in a Deadlift competition in December of 2015 with a 545-pound pull, at only 180 pounds.
Lastly, I am a firm believer in Yahweh our Father, and our Master and Savior Yahushua HaMaschiac, whom the world knows as Jesus Christ. I follow the Teachings and Instructions of Yahweh as found in the Holy Bible. I truly believe, we must address our SPITIRUAL lives along with our nutrition for OPTIMAL longevity. The Holy Scriptures contains the GREATEST HEALTH MESSAGE in the world. To be blessed with a long life in excellent health, we must align our lives with the Word of Yahweh.
Why do I call myself The Minister of Wellness? Minister means “to serve,” and “wellness” is the ongoing process of being healthy. My mission is to help you achieve and maintain PERMANENT health throughout your entire life. To do this, we must address ALL aspects of life, spiritual, nutritional, and physical. And that’s what I bring to the table as a Minister of Wellness. The best of all three of these components of wellness to help people live STRESS-free lives, under the protection of our Creator, in excellent physical health. I am genuinely excited to have the honor to SERVE YOU, in achieving your health and fitness goals.
I hope you live a long life in EXCELLENT HEALTH.
And may YAHWEH have mercy on us ALL.
