Jared has made a big change in his community teaching keto/LCHF cooking classes for whānau at Turuki Health. Now working as a Health Coach, Jared continues to help whānau make positive health and wellbeing choices.

How did you originally become interested in health and lifestyle medicine?

After working overseas in the mines (construction) for 10 years I came home to be a stay-at-home father. My wife was already a LCHF advocate and GP. Becoming the main cook in the house, I knew I had to step up and continue what my wife had already been doing. From there, I managed to upskill in the kitchen and provide good nutritional options for my three girls and wife.

After more practice in the kitchen, I was approached to take on teaching keto/LCHF cooking classes for whānau at Turuki Health. This furthered my passion for health and lifestyle medicine. From there, my wife introduced me to PreKure. So I took up the challenge of becoming a PreKure Health Coach. 

How has becoming a PreKure Certified Health Coach impacted your life?

Becoming a PreKure Certified Health Coach has provided me with the tools and knowledge to improve my lifestyle and those around me. The modules were really well planned and easy to understand. The labs were amazing. Each week was different, challenging and improving on the previous. Providing me with skills, support and knowledge to take the next step – a Health Coach job! I look forward to helping whānau make positive health and wellbeing choices and to set the example for our tamariki. 

What advice do you have for others thinking about starting their study journey with PreKure?

Do it! Whether it be for personal or career development, you won’t regret it. The courses are well thought out. Providing you with all the tools and knowledge you need. You can study at your own pace. The administration team was excellent in providing you with the support to succeed.
