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.
The foundational WillPower Method® education course is a combination of live on-line coaching, supplemented with an abundance of pre-recorded on-line learning modules. We do offer live courses at select locations around the year.
With our course, you’ll learn why Emotional Fitness is the next dimension to Physical Fitness – and why it’s so critically important in our world today. We’ll teach you the science, behind Sensory Integration as a learning tool for our students, and how addressing the senses can shift thought patterns and lift emotions. Learn to integrate Power Posturing, Gesture and Visualization into your coaching, and watch your clients connect with themselves… right before your eyes! You’ll also learn how to coach the willPower signature series – based on a template of pre-choreographed, functional bodyweight exercise sequences; barefoot and equipment-free. Think: *cardio yoga* with emotion and purpose.
