I know it has been quite some time since we had a tip from one of our health and fitness gurus. And since health is wealth, I had to do my due diligence to find someone that could guide us from the highest point of view when it comes to loving our bodies and healing our minds.
Living in LA LA land (LA, CA), it seems like everyone is practically hip to the health and wellness program. However, if you look closely beyond those amazing sculpted bodies, often times you will find out that although people look healthy, it does not mean that they are healthy. And you would be surprised to see what people put themselves through just to reach an aesthetic.
However, what good is the aesthetic if the inside of that aethetic is minutes away from having a mental, emotional or physical breakdown. So please allow me to introduce to you not only a certified Equinox trainer, but also a certified Reiki healer, Kyle Polansky, as he is going to start sharing with us his holistic philosophy and best practices to health and wellness.
💜Love & Light🌞,
Cristen M. Mills
I had the opportunity to catch up with Mr. Polansky to learn more about the human being he his along with his thoughts around Art, life and love. And one thing that is for sure, he most certainly gets the heART of cool stamp. Read below, to see why.
HoC: Describe your background. What was your childhood like?
Kyle Polansky: I grew up in a beautiful coastal town in Texas called Corpus Christi. I was fortunate enough to be involved in a homeschooled co-op environment up until the age of 14, which is when I was enrolled in a public high-school. I was raised by two beautiful human beings who did their best to raise me with love in my heart, curiosity burning within and a good set of morals, which revolved around treating others as I would like to be treated in return. We always had a lot of animals growing up and more time to play outside than anything else, I often did my school work in the backyard tucked up high in a tree.
HoC: Who are you? What is your purpose on the planet?
Polansky: I am an eternal being of light, my role on this planet is to evolve through lessons which need understanding as well as to serve as an example for others and aid in their upliftment as I am uplifted.
HoC: What inspired you to be in the wellness industry?
Polansky: I heard this voice when I was 12 years old, during a car ride with my mother. This voice told me and showed me with a mental image that I was going to affect stadiums of people in a very positive way. I questioned what this insight was for a brief moment, but instantly was assured that it was to be. During my adolescence I went through many traumatic experiences, leaving me feeling powerless, which lead to me take charge of the one thing I felt I had control over, my physical body. I began exercising and working out in a gym at the age of 16, I purchased books and began studying more about what the body needed to be strong and became a Certified Personal Trainer as soon as I turned 18. I continued my education by a college degree from Texas A&M University in Kinesiology and Nutrition.
HoC: What role does authenticity play in your work?
Polansky: Since my passions are within the healing arts, my connection with the people I work with determines how effective my messages are received. In order to truly connect with and love others, I believe you must first be connected to your authentic Self and love your Self unconditionally, being true to my Self is how I lead others to reconnecting with the light within.
HoC: How do you define Art? What role does Art play in the evolution of you as a human being?
Polansky: Art to me is anything that you create with thought and bring to a manifested form. We create to know ourselves, to gain perspective on what we are at the time of creation and to evolve beyond what we once were. In a way, I use the art that I create to overview the growth of my own life path.
HoC: What does success look like for you in the wellness and fitness profession?
Polansky: Cristen, you are asking some great questions! Success within my passion of wellness looks like a kaleidoscope of cosmic vibrations beaming from my heart, filled with the love and joy of all those whom have benefited in some way from what I am able to express and create here on this planet.
HoC: How do you qualify success in your life in general?
Polansky: I would have to say by my ability to maintain alignment and increase my connection to Source/Universal/Divine energy.
HoC: What Artists and people in the fitness/wellness industry inspire you the most now and why?
Polansky: I’ve honestly been so busy expanding in every direction since moving to Los Angeles in 2015 that I am not entirely caught up on who’s hot in the wellness industry. I’m really connected to healers, dancers, singers, visual artist and anyone who is creating and sharing their light with the world now.
HoC: What advice can you give aspiring trainers?
Polansky: Make sure you want to be a personal trainer for the right reasons, people are going to listen to you as a health care professional, be one.
HoC: What is love and how does it shape your life?
Polansky: I got really excited to answer this question. Love is the energy source that flows within my entire existence, it exudes from every cell within my bodies; mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Love is literally the air that I breathe, my life revolves around it.
HoC: What is the meaning of life?
Polansky: The meaning of life is to discover oneself through experience, to learn and to have fun!
HoC: What is the heART of cool to you?
Polansky: heART of cool to me is a beautiful expression of art, love and light shared with all that are guided to partake in the abundance that it provides!
