Emotional Fitness is the space where physical exercise and emotion and fitness collide. The willPower Method® is a system of linking thought to movement, developing new emotional pathways through physical actions. We help our students re-direct negative thoughts constructively and creatively, developing courage, self confidence and unstoppable willpower.

The willPower Method has an 18-year history of smart, strong, physical programming. Now WillPower is relaunching with the help of Savvier Fitness – and our methodology has become more vibrant than ever; with the power of SCIENCE behind our methodology!

WillPower Method® Instructor Training will guide you to become licensed as a WillPower instructor, and even transform as a functional athlete.  You’ll work with other instructors and our faculty of Master Instructors and Development Coaches as you fine-tune your skills during workshops, online learning and internship.

We’ve been training instructors since 2004 and are accredited with NASM, ACE and AFAA. Pre-registration is required for all workshops. Workshops are offered around the USA and abroad.
