ACTIVEIGHT – An Introduction

We’re going on 3 years now, and what can we say? This year, it feels less like going to an annual fitness conference and more like a family reunion. And for those of you who haven’t experienced it yet, you’ll know it when you see it – when you experience it.

This year’s theme is The Challenge of Fitness. We’re digging in deep. Part of the challenge of fitness is to challenge the ordinary – one of our 8 core principles (that’s why it’s activEIGHT). Each and every person there is already challenging the ordinary in some way in their lives – if they weren’t, they wouldn’t be there. And it’s when we come together with one heart and one mind that a vision takes hold…and it already has. Let’s continue to lift up our Eyes Up, and Rise Up.

This year, the challenge starts with us.

"I believe that as we use our strengths; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, to serve, we are given more. Fitness has been relegated to 6 pack abs, a faster 40, a bigger bench, a better Fran time. Goals are good, and they matter. But if all we train and prepare for is to improve our fitness metrics, or look better for others that judge us, then that’s all we get. But as we cast our Eyes Up, and choose to Rise Up, acting out of inspiration with intention for purposes greater than self, amazing things begin to happen. When great people, places and things come together to create the change they seek in the world, the positive effects cascade forever. This is my mission, my activprayer: To use my God given gifts, talents and passions to inspire, connect, teach and share with others in an effort to change the way we look at fitness, ourselves and those around us. To help people get ready to be ready when they are called upon, becoming the who THEY were created to be, in order to do the WHAT ONLY THEY CAN DO."
