A few inspiring stories from some of the ActivEight family members.

Sean Garner, strength & conditioning coach, runner-up of the 2015 Men's Health Next Top Trainer contest, and Men's Health writer and advisor, had this to say about ActivEight:

"My wife, Courtney, and I first got involved with ActivPrayer after I met David Jack at Men's Health Magazine. I initially new something was different about David, something contagious. ActivEight 2.0 (2015) was our first experience working with the ActivPrayer organization.

At the time we were going through a lot of struggle within our personal lives and business in the fitness industry. It was a weekend of getting re-charged and re-energized to press on for the greater good of ourselves and those around us. To become contagious in a positive way, pursuing the best in others and for others. That's being an Activator!

I would encourage any fitness professional or enthusiast to take a close look at this organization and attend their events. Those around you need YOU to rise up and lead them to a deeper meaning and purpose within their fitness journey which I've seen, felt, and experienced impact day to day life."
