Welcome Friends

Grab our seatbelts! My name is Freddie Kimmel and I am an addict. I am addicted to all things food, fitness, serenity, sleep, recovery, stress management and wellbeing. I promise you there is a good reason for this!

My journey down the “rabbit hole” began in 2006 when I was diagnosed with Testicular Cancer. Due to a late diagnosis, a single tumor metastasized and quickly turned to 9. They surrounded a kidney, my superior vena cava running to my heart and multiple lymph nodes in my abdomen. Chemo and multiple surgeries throughout 2007 would yield a cancer-free diagnosis in less than a year. However, when I returned to “normal life” I hit a wall. My general health began to fail within the first three months following treatment. To the outsider, I looked fine, but inside I was dying. My energy and sense of wellbeing quickly started to deteriorate. I was living on a tightrope, with the smallest gust of wind sending me into crisis, or the closest emergency room. An actor by trade, I hid this VERY well, but it was a true balancing act. It was not until a second trip to the hospital in 2011 (having a foot of my small intestine removed due to an obstruction from scar tissue) that I knew something had to change.

I believe the universe will keep repeating it’s lessons louder and louder until you hear the message, until this moment I was not listening.

Every time you go under the knife is a trauma for the nervous system and mine was in a never-ending state of shock. Soon my immune system and digestion followed suit…in fact, there was a point in my life where I could tolerate eating as few as 14 foods without allergic reactions. This is no way to live and I wanted no part of it. After cancer, I did change the food I was eating, ate an incredibly clean diet, but these efforts were not enough. The did point the needle in the right direction. To truly heal to need to look at the whole picture. I had to address sleep, balance the bacteria in my gut, remove toxins in my system, calm my nervous system, and address the emotional trauma in my life. I had to fearlessly ask the questions that traditional medicine doctors were afraid to. I consulted naturopaths on the other side of the county and on other continents. I had to trust the voice in my own head and know what I always knew: I know my body better than anyone else. I became my best advocate for health and though that truth I started to feel better.

My God! The hours and days I laid alone in my bed, stomach cramping, barely able to stand are staggering. I wished and prayed someone would walk into my life with some guidance.

The Promise

I promised myself if I ever got to a stronger place in my life, if one day I were to feel strong again, I would try to be that person for someone else. The responsibility of survivorship was born and I began to take action.

I started reading books. I started reading books on anatomy, health, and physical fitness. I read books on vitamins and supplementation. I read books on the brain, books on spiritual healing, books on shamanism, books on fasting, on Lyme disease, books on recovering from trauma and shock. I became certified in personal training, as a Functional Health Coach and took courses in energy medicine. Including reiki and Donna Eden Energy Medicine. The list is long and ridiculous.

Coaching

So here we are! Look at the incredible life experiences that have led me to you, and you to me. This is Freddie Set Go. On this site, I post about success and failure. I write about everything under the umbrella of wellness. I also act as a Guide or Coach for those seeking a change their mental performance, vibrancy, and relationship with food. As a coach, I present numerous possible options accompanied by the most current research. I believe in education and preparation which gives the client the tools to make the best decision for them. Clients become an active participant in their own improvement and that is the recipe for lasting change. I like to think of myself as the gap between the doctor’s office and grocery store. I am very passionate about the process, knowledge-based research and reaching untapped potential. Click here for the many packages I have designed to meet most needs. Am I the coach for you? Maybe, but if I am not I have a very extensive network of Super-Friends in the business who may be the perfect fit and I am happy to connect you.

Closing it up

Today I am feeling good. I have an amazing client list which spans the United States from New York to California. I work professionally in theater/television based out of NYC. In the last 5 years, I have been in several Broadway tours including Billy Elliot and Phantom of the Opera. In addition, I have the energy to spend time with friends and family. I am extremely grateful for this level of functionality. I am living my dream life and I am tearing up to be able to put this in black and white. The coaching and health addiction fuel my passion for creating characters onstage and while it may seem unconventional to many, I could not be happier.

I think of the hand I have been dealt. I think of what I have been through and feel a responsibility to write it down and share where I made success and experienced failure. I strive to save those going through those same, time, money and heartache. This is the responsibility of survivorship. This why I’m here.
