Frequently Asked Questions
What does NOCK mean or stand for?
A NOCK is the metal or plastic piece at the end of an arrow (used in archery) that fits into place on the bowstring, directing the flight path of the arrow. "Nocking the arrow" is an important part of the set up and it is often rushed or ignored, much like we often neglect our health and wellness. We say that NOCK is the pause before we react, a call to being in the moment. It is the time before we choose, the space we take before deciding where we want to go.
What makes NOCK different from other programs?
Ethical Weight Management. We are dedicating our work to making sure that you are not recycled through another system that promotes short term results. NOCK is different from every other program because we look at your life in its' entirety and work together to uncover your confidence. We offer no quick fixes to health or wellness because research shows that does not support lasting results AND it is damaging to you and others.
Can I benefit from this program if I want to have a better relationship with food but I don’t
need to lose weight?
Absolutely you can benefit from our programs. As stated above, we look at the whole picture of the member’s life. With our carefully posed questions, we help our members find where their life needs focus and then provide them with the tools they need to get where they want to go.
How do I know which program fits me best?
Nock Begins is a subscription based program and a great place to start which does not require a consultation. For the Nock Life Program, you can schedule a 30 minute Lifestyle Consultation with so we can learn more about your mind, body and lifestyle in order to help us determine the best program for you.
What kind of accountability is included?
We provide many different forms of accountability, depending on the program. You can opt for minimal or as much as needed in the Nock Life Member Coach + Program.
Why would NOCK work if every other program I have tried has not worked?
The Nock Life Method is designed to get you to reach your goals through thinking, consuming and moving in support of your goals AND your confidence. The data is clear - there is no detox, juice cleanse, 30 day challenge, keto plan or labeled diet that will support you in achieving long-term results. Nock works because we offer you a method that that works for your unique mind, body and circumstances.
What is the meaning of Ethical Weight Management?
We define weight as “that which holds us down,” including our experiences. We respect a woman’s choice to decide whether or not she would like to release physical weight and if she does, it is our mission to provide her with the most ethical pathway to achieving long-term results. Through EWM, our mission is to bring people together to take action toward a future free from diets.
