Reaching sustainable change

To improve your wellbeing, you need to think how all the elements in your life and environment interact. Doing small things consistently well will lead to sustainable results. We base all our services on our unique Circle of Better Life model, and our tested coaching methodology. Each journey is unique, and our aim is to identify the key leavers for you to achieve improved health, quality of life and performance.

The Core

It all starts from the Core

At Hintsa we start everything from the Core – your inner motivation to reach sustainable change. Exploring your Core encourages you to live your daily life with meaning, realise more of your potential, and be true to what matters most to you. This provides you with a motivational backbone for making meaningful changes and is vital for reaching your goals.

"Start by asking yourself three questions: do you know who you are, do you know what you want, and are you in control of your life?"

— Dr Aki Hintsa

The Circle of Better Life

Imagine a wheel constructed of six components. If one component breaks down, the wheel stops spinning. For the wheel to spin smoothly, all parts need to be in place and in balance. This model, representing the holistic nature of wellbeing, is the foundation of all our services. We call it the Circle of Better Life.

Physical activity

Finding your individual physical level of endurance, strength and mobility and developing these abilities in a balanced way, allows you to perform optimally in life. Regardless of where you are starting from, our coaches work to develop personalised training programmes that improve the quality and quantity of your physical training and daily movement.


Following a healthy diet, enables your body to function optimally in areas including disease prevention, energy production, immunity, and physical and mental performance. Our licensed specialists provide you with the best evidence-based advice available for making healthy choices, whilst respecting the individual needs of your body.

Sleep & recovery

Giving sufficient time and attention to sleep, rest, and recovery enables your mind and body to recuperate, regenerate and perform optimally. Improving the quality of your recovery and helping you to find a sustainable balance between work and rest are key components of all our programmes.


Optimising your physical movement and control, improves your performance, reduces injuries and enables lifelong physical activity. Our goal is to help you lead a life free from physical restrictions and musculoskeletal limitations by enhancing your mobility, balance and movement control.

Mental energy

Improving your ability to manage yourself, your work, and your social relationships helps you maintain a positive energy balance in life. Together with our coaches you will find ways to add to your mental energy budget rather than drain it.

General health

Gaining greater awareness and understanding of your own health and learning better everyday habits leads to a healthier life and greater wellbeing. With medical check-ups and sessions performed by licensed professionals, our programmes will help you better understand your current state of health and take a proactive approach in improving it.
