ACTIVE LIFESTYLE & HOLISTIC SCIENCE EDUCATION
HOLISTIC SCIENCE FRAMEWORK
FOR HABITAT & HUMAN HEALTH
MAVERICKS Life Co. is an education company that specialises in holistic science for habitat and human health. We place an active lifestyle at the centre of the way humans interact with the natural world, and we study and explore how lifestyle, training and performance enhance a sustainable approach to life. Holistic Science is a field of study that is rooted in examining complex systems to develop a global understanding, rather than focusing on isolated components. Holistic science can be applied to a number of fields including health, wellbeing, ecology, business, economics, psychology, physics, etc. It is a "macro" approach that studies the full spectrum of components that interplay to create cause & effect.
HOLISTIC SCIENCE 101
THE STUDY & APPLICATION OF COMPLEX SYSTEMS, LINKING HABITAT, HUMAN HEALTH & PERFORMANCE.
At MAVERICKS Life Co., we place an active lifestyle at the centre of the way humans interact with the natural world, and we explore and study how lifestyle, training and performance enhance a sustainable approach to life, through the lens of Holistic Science.
Holistic Science is a field of study that is rooted in examining complex systems to develop a global understanding, rather than focusing on isolated components. It is a "macro" approach that studies cause & effect of complex systems, such as the weather, ecosystems, evolution, culture, macroeconomics... any structure that is difficult to analyse using just data, because it depends on interactions between different systems. It relies on emerging patterns and interactions, and provides depth through contextual analysis.
At MAVERICKS Life Co., we use Holistic Science as the basis across three sectors:
Research & Development: We developed a Holistic Science Framework involving four pillars - Complexity Theory, Evolution & Habitat, Training Physiology, and Culture & Diversity.
Sports, Fitness & Wellbeing Industry: We deliver our Holistic Science Framework education through articles, publications, and courses aimed at professionals and athletes, through our online academy - BBS Training Academy.
Active Leisure: For the broader public, we bring Holistic Sciences to life using a joyful, entertaining approach, through "The MAVERICKS Way" - our online community aimed at people who enjoy an active lifestyle and are interested in learning more about the outdoors. Through educational media and events, we encourage a sense of discovery of the human/nature interaction.
CREATING THE FRAMEWORK
The study & applications of Holistic Science
Studying and applying Holistic Science is a complex, never-ending task. It is akin to studying patterns in an ever-changing sky or a constantly moving ocean. As a relatively new field of study, Jessica Z. Christensen has dedicated the last fifteen years to develop a framework that can apply to business, wellness, fitness and human performance. She is currently working towards publishing and developing explanatory research and holistic science models for the human/nature continuum.
JESSICA Z. CHRISTENSEN
With over 15 years in the industry working as an educator and consultant for holistic training for sports, fitness & wellbeing, Jessica has made studying Holistic Science her life's work.
She is a NASM CPT with the National Academy of Sports Medicine, passionate about the physiology of adaptation and the link between our physical wellbeing and our external environments. Her studies include L4 Advanced Anatomy & Physiology, Harvard Medical School HMX Physiology, Ecology Diploma, Philosophy of Science, and courses in Unfolding Evolution and Anatomy Trains in Motion - with continuing studies in evolutionary biology and natural sciences. Her work has been accredited by the United States Centre for Coaching Excellence, actively supports the World Land Trust and National History Museum in her pursuits to study and explore the human/nature continuum.
