Our holistic, purpose-driven approach helps individuals become more physically energized, mentally focused and fully engaged in the moments that matter most — at work and at home.



 

About the Program

The Health Athlete program emphasizes energy management through a comprehensive examination of goals and values in relation to spiritual purpose, mental, emotional and physical development. The program uses the power of personal story, what individuals tell themselves about who they are and the reasons why their circumstances are what they are, to affect behavior change.

Health Athlete helps individuals maximize energy and improve wellbeing, by fueling higher performance and inspiring purposeful living. Individuals who attend Health Athlete leave the program with the tools to increase their confidence and ability to engage in healthy lifestyle behaviors that will lead to improved health outcomes.
