Ian Jacobs is your World Champion, Trainer & Speaker

My childhood dream was to be one of the greatest fighters of all time

I was born with a gift that has allowed me to achieve remarkable success and now I want to educate others on what I have learned.

I was raised by a tough, strict father and loving mother, brought up with honour, respect and strong family values. I was taught to believe that I could do anything, emotionally educated and supported by my strong and loving family.

I was six when I first knew I was going to be world champion. Against my mum’s wishes I trained with my brothers and friends in pursuit of a fight career. When I was 18 she watch my second fight (state title), and said she knew at that moment my childhood claims would come true and became my biggest fan. Funnily enough, I went on to win my first world title on my mum’s 50th birthday! What a happy birthday and historical moment of life for my mum!

Becoming triple world champion launched my profile and shaped my journey to create other champions in and out of the ring. Over my lifetime career I’ve enjoyed helping people to achieve their personal goals and become healthier, happier, and safer individuals.

What was a boy’s dream became a man’s quest and now belongs to all and everyone that cares, shares a passion to succeed, and a desire for a better quality of life.

Below is the life I chose, the challenges I faced, the list of what I did to become who I am and be respected so I have a voice to be truly heard!!!

Ian Jacobs BodyTrance training is cutting-edge exercise technology. Ian produces the most powerful and effective training results I have seen yet. The fundamentals of the BodyTrance program stem from the evidence-based sciences of physiotherapy and exercise physiology; and directed alignment of the conscious and subconscious mind. Utilising a combination of these fundamentals results in peak physiological states of absolute power, performance and productivity. Ian Jacobs BodyTrance encompasses all aspects of training the body and mind to achieve peak performance levels and body awareness. This unique methodology is safe and sustainable and can be performed by any person varying from elite athletes, stay-at-home mums, office workers, labourers, children, and the elderly.  It is proven and well known that regular exercise plays a major role in the prevention of diseases and improved quality of life. Depression is related to low levels of the neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine; both of which are increased by physical exercise. This makes exercise one of the most important forms of therapy for depression. Studies have shown that regular aerobic and strength-training activities can result in up to a 50% reduction in symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Poor levels of fitness, and obesity, contribute to various severe cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, hormonal and psychological problems in todays community. Heart disease remains the leading medical cause of death and disability in the country. Studies have found that daily physical activity can help prevent heart disease and stroke by strengthening the heart muscle, lowering blood pressure, raising high-density lipoprotein levels and lowering low-density lipoprotein levels.
Regular exercise is known to reduce the development of Type 2 Diabetes in adults. Regular weight-bearing exercise promotes bone formation, reducing risk of osteoporosis. Research shows that back and neck pain can be eliminated through core strength and posture retraining.
BodyTrance is an ideal program to assist with preventing falls in the elderly, and sporting injury prevention

in athletes through enhanced neuromuscular balance training -increasing proprioception and neuromuscular motor control.

It has been said that the quality of your life is directly related to your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. The BodyTrance program is the only program world-wide which integrates all 3 components of health that leads to rapid transformation in health, fitness, self-esteem, confidence, happiness and strong sense of well-being.

Jim McKenna of the University of Bristol found that participants had better relationships with their colleagues, better time management skills and improved job performance and mental sharpness with daily exercise. BodyTrance programs incorporate productivity enhancing strategies which are carried out throughout work places to:

1. Productivity and product quality
2. Workplace morale and employee responsibility
3. Elevated moods and improved levels of mental, emotional and physical fitness in the workplace

1. Employee injuries
2. Worker’s compensation claims
3. Worker’s compensation costs
4. Medical treatment costs
5. Lost time and sick leave
6. Negative attitude towards work
7. Staff overtime due to productivity loss

As demonstrated by the above evidence, the demand for intelligent exercise programs such as Ian Jacobs BodyTrance has been imminent and is a necessary part of our fast-growing culture. Ian Jacobs BodyTrance is the missing link to rapid and sustainable superior fitness, and a necessary protocol to forge ahead in today’s adrenalin-fuelled and often burnt-out society.”
