Alive, Strong & Fearless

 

If you could tell your younger self one thing, What would it be?

  • Would it be to speak up more?

  • Would it be to be stronger?

  • Would it be to try something new?

  • Would it be to love yourself more?

  • Would it be to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF?

Imagine how impactful that message to yourself would have been!

Your daughter now has the opportunity to grow her confidence with new friends in a safe, fun and energetic environment as a member of the Alive, Strong & Fearless team!

When I think back to my childhood, my parents’ and friends’ support and words of encouragment pulled me through many difficult challenges and life circumstances.

As an adult, I see our world rapidly changing. We are living in a fast-paced world of comparison. Seeing the world as it is now has created a fire within me to strengthen and empower our youth: Our dream-makers, our goal-setters, our go-getters, our girls that are going to change the world – and change it for the better!

Over the last three years, I have had the pleasure of speaking across Canada and the U.S. sharing the message of Alive, Strong & Fearless. I have showed girls their inner strength and celebrated their individual personalities. I have showed them how to FEEL ALIVE, how to harness THEIR STRENGTH, and how to look fear in the eye and give it a wink!

I'm excited to bring Alive, Strong & Fearless back this FALL with even more options for your daughters!

A few things you need to know:

  • I ask that one of the parents attend the first five minutes of the first session to fill out forms and hear my expectations for the girls. This will ensure we all have clear lines of communication open to share what we need to share from all sides. Please feel free to contact me at any time.
  • Swag Bags filled with great things to get them started will be handed out during the first session. They will also receive a workbook that is to be filled out before the next session.
  • Each week will have a new theme or topic of discussion. The time committment for work on this workbook will be about 15 minutes per week.
  • Alive, Strong & Fearless will be a judgment-free, safe environment for sharing and self-expression.
  • Each session will finish off with a short meditation and mindfulness activity.
  • Classes will be held at AKCS
  • An end of season photoshoot will be orchestrated by Jenifer Sanders, and the theme for this photoshoot will be “I AM STRONG.”

I expect girls to:

  • Have a positive attitude.
  • Work hard.
  • Listen respectfully.
  • Show up on time, ready to go.
  • Complete the workbook activities before each session.

Included in ALL PROGRAMS

  • Fitness & Empowerment Sessions.
  • 40 minutes of activity/training/fitness each session.
  • Interactive and complimentary workbook geared toward the program they have chosen.
  • Fun Swag Bag.
  • Professional photo shoot with Jenifer Sanders.

Alicia Bowman

Alicia is a soulful yogi. She prides herself in her flow of practice and in life. Her connection to Mother Nature and to the inner world brings her classes a hightent experience that the girls have loved! She guides the Alive, Strong & Fearless program with yoga and mindfulness.

What does Alive, Strong & Fearless mean to her? "Alive is to live and peruse the things that feed your soul, that remind you of who you really are and what is actually important to you.

Strong is to stay when things get hard, to keep going on your chosen path when obstacles are placed before you. Fighting for what you believe in and what you want for yourself.

Fearless doesn’t exist. The best things in my life have come to me when I was afraid and did the thing anyway. Sometimes fear can keep you alive, sometimes it can keep you from living. It is best to make friends with your fear, knowing it can better help you know yourself." - Alicia

I feel that Alive Strong & Fearless is a vehicle for powerful change: Alive Strong & Fearless can change our own perceptions about strength, physical fitness, empowerment, and the power of girls and women. We are capable of far more than we give ourselves credit for. We can do challenging things, push our own boundaries, and we can strive to achieve goals that we set for ourselves. We are part of a dynamic and passionate team that holds us accountable and pushes us to achieve what we set out to achieve (whatever that may be). Alive Strong & Fearless is a group unlike any other: It is a safe place for girls and women to support each other in building strength and endurance – Physically, mentally, and spiritually.

Fall Programs

The Alive, Strong & Fearless Program unites fitness and empowerment together for girls. The program was designed to start and building the confidence early.

I, Kelsey, remember reading a statistic saying the average age of girls dropping out of sports was lowering, yet the numbers of girls dropping out was increasing. WHY? And the Number One reason was self confidence. That means that there are countless girls out there with the ability like Mia Hamm, Christine Sinclair and Hayley Wickenheiser out there, they just stopped playing too early because someone may have said something to them or they may have thought it wasn’t “pretty” to sweat or “play like a boy”.

This program gives girls the confidence and strength to keep competing or keep being active in a new way. Every program follows the same outline of uniting Fitness & Empowerment together. The classes are kept on small for a deeper connection between team leader and participant, participant to participant and participant to self. The classes are designed with weekly topics and discussions. Over the 12 weeks the girls participate in many activities together. The major one being, the team creates an idea to give back to the community. This is supported by the instructor but girls are to lead it. This gives them the hands on experience of giving back.

This Fall Alive Fitness is offering 3 different programs for your daughter to participate in. Check them out below, but first, check out what’s covered and what’s included!

Tie Up Those Laces

Let's do this!

Bringing back the second season of Run Club! This club was a huge hit last season and the girls were running in -10 weather, while running and laughing!

Our focus for your daughter here is to find the balance of mental ability and physical ability, all while having fun running! If you have ever ran any distance you know it's a mind game. And here we are showing the girls how to overcome that and how that will trickle down into their school and sports environment.
