Testimonials

This course allowed me to regain control of my life post-deployment, post-military separation. It saved my life. I cannot express with enough gratitude that this is being taught at the beginning of a similar career path for folks, it will save lives. As a refresher for myself, it is also invaluable. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Thanks for a great workout today and a great week overall. I'm really glad our department gave us the opportunity to come and listen to you all this week. Definitely gave me knowledge to change my life.

It's hard honestly to answer what my favorite part of the workshop was as every part was amazing and life changing for me. I can't really pick just one thing as they were all amazing from the "lectures", one-on-one talks with the Specialist, to the hands-on sessions (warm ups, workout sessions, etc).

The accountability that comes with this course is my favorite part. When I get asked to think about what my 1% is I have to come up with an answer. The repetition of this forces me to really think about what it is I want to do and how to do it.
