To have your optimal health and performance your body and mind thrive with natural alternatives. Doterra Essential oils are the best option for powerful results.
A few years ago I hit a wall. A gym owner for over a decade, I had coached the best athletes in the world for almost 20 years, helped amazing clients reach potentials they didn't think possible and parented a blended family with 5 incredible kids.
Things were rocking- yet I was burnt out. I was getting one cold after another and felt so run down. I couldn't even get a good deep sleep. I was an experienced coach with the most current information. I ate well and trained smart, yet I was always run down, stressed and ended up with pneumonia. The antibiotics kicked my gut! I was ready and open minded for something different and had been exploring the research about essential oils. Doterra's oils, vitamins, and my own self-care made such a positive difference in my life and getting my health back that I knew my clients needed that level of care too. It was an easy decision to align and make it part of my business! What area of your health are you ready to improve with oils?SHOP NOW

Training at Empower keeps me healthy. Kari makes sure I get the off-season strength, speed and power work I need and keeps it tough but not boring. I like that my programs are customized and catered to my needs and schedule. I am stronger than I have ever been!
I have been training at Empower since 2006 and let me tell you, I don't think I could have gone through much more variety of training. My aerial career started with a competitive gymnastics background and when I first started, Kari helped me strengthen all my weak links I would need for aerials.
Working with Kari Schneider took my fitness and tennis game to a whole new level. Kari always pushed me to the limit to reach my goal on and off the court. Kari always believed in me, and supported my dream of being a paralympian. Without Kari's incredible knowledge of training I don't believe I would have had so much success on the Wheelchair International Tennis Federation tour.
One of the great things about Empower and Kari, is that I have learned to always push my progressions further, always beat my personal best. If I work hard today, I will be better tomorrow but still I can be better the day after tomorrow if I keep working hard. The best thing for me with Empower and Kari, is the relation of trust. I never have second guessed them, they are very professional and the workouts they have built for me are a major asset in my quest to become a great athlete.
