Editor in Chief of menshealth.com and Fitness Director of the Brand Activated!

What the Men’s Health (and Rodale) brand means to me personally can’t be expressed in written words.  I will simply say that it is a first class publication, and organization with one mission: to help people live their WHOLE lives (Rodale).  It has been a tremendous blessing in mine, helping me do just that.

When I first had the opportunity to work with the Rodale brand, I read their mission statement, slightly different at the time, it was as if I had penned it myself; “To inspire people to live healthier lives and provide them with the tools to do it.” Activators. Educators. Thought leaders.  Industry change agents.

Fast forward 7 years, and in the midst of countless amazing projects and people within the Men’s Health Brand, there is one that I will truly be forever grateful for, honored to call a friend, and consider one of the finer human beings on the planet, Adam Campbell.

Adam has played an invaluable role in my career, personal and family growth.  He sees the big picture like few I have seen in the industry and even fewer in journalism.  He believes in the good, and the good in people, and gives them a chance to prove him otherwise.  He creates, collaborates, takes calculated and brilliant risks and leads with energy and passion.

He is an activator at the highest level.  He will make you better in one experience, though he will assist in many during his time in Phoenix.

On behalf of all of us at activprayer and activeight, I’m deeply grateful for your ongoing support, friendship, commitment to excellence, your continued inspired action and friendship AC.

activeight experience welcomes BJ Gaddour

@BJGaddour  – entrepreneur, fitness professional and friend will be attending and sharing at the 1st annual activeight conference at Arizona Grand Resort in Phoenix October 23-26, 2014.

In addition to being a key part of our activator team, BJ will be sharing at least 2 things we can talk about at this point :)

1) Like all other activators – his story.  And you don’t want to miss it during “open mic”.  The intentions that drive him, and the actions he takes, and has taken to honor them.

2) The activ8 – BJ will lead a hands on experience covering 8 foundational movement patterns (based on the principles outlined in his best selling book, @Your Body is Your Barbell), complete with progressions, regressions, coaching cues, activwords (that set the foundation for pattern mastery and subconscious competence) and done for you tools to take home.

And here’s the kicker – he’ll deliver it live to fitness enthusiasts without any intake, architecture or pre-screening.  Discover the simplicity of the concept, and the profound results it can create.

Welcome brother, we’re honored to have you!!
