Strength to Serve and Founder Jeremy Shore ready to activeight

I first met Jeremy Shore in Los Angeles in 2008 on the set of a full production DVD project we did together for Men’s Health Magazine.  From the moment we met, I knew there was something different about him.

Since then, we have become as close as brothers, and he has gone on to create global impact in the fitness world through the platforms of media, education and coaching (as you’ll see below).  More than that, Jeremy has played a pivotal role in my life behind the scenes as a friend, mentor, and peer.  He has become one of my best friends, and is one of my personal activeight brothers.

Jeremy has also founded a movement we’ve partnered with called Strength to Serve (STS).  The truth that STS promotes is that our strength isn’t for us, it’s for others.  It’s meant to transfer out of the gym into the everyday lives we lead and to those who need it from us.  It’s inspiring people, and giving them tools to use their fitness to bring “strength” (the capacity for effective action as he says) to homes, communities and globally by using their fitness in a simple, yet profound way.  And the irony is, the more strength that’s given away, the more we seem to get in return.

Jeremy is a first class fitness professional and human being (job #1) and the STS movement is changing the way communities use, benefit from, and view fitness.  I’ve had the pleasure of working side by side with him in several cities and for various causes, and it has truly activated my life.

Jeremy will help deliver a live fitness media specialist hands on session, as well as a live strength to serve experience.  You’ll be grateful for both.  And maybe, just maybe, you might also get your medicine ball literacy seriously upgraded :)

We (and I personally) are grateful for your presence and your willingness to serve brother!  See you in October!

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!!
