Program Overview

The Empower Program seeks to touch, move, and inspire!  Our coaching is designed to unleash and enhance a Client’s ability to empower themselves toward breakthrough success.  We approach each Client from a holistic 360 degree view, where the mental, physical, and emotional components are considered interconnected, each affecting the balance of the other.  Utilizing an evidence-based scientific method,  information is continually collected and evaluated to determine the Client State (medical history, physical attributes,  emotional acumen, etc…).  Clients are encouraged to reach internally and identify SMART*personal goals they would like to achieve.  These goals, along with evaluations, are used to collaboratively develop a timeline for achieving benchmarks of improvement.  This living timeline is used to measure a Client’s progress toward reaching their goals.

As part of physical coaching, everyone of all ages is encouraged to unleash their ” inner athlete”.  Physical coaching is dedicated to extending the Client’s mobility while moving them into breakthrough athletic achievement.

Clients are given access to nutritional, yoga, and meditation tools, as well as other resources as needed.  From access to healthy online recipes to contact with professional service providers, the Empower Program is a complete network of resources at the Client’s fingertips!
