8The EmPowered Project
"Back the Blue" 5k/10k/1-mile sprint
This event is to support those who sacrifice in the line of duty here, in the United States. Law Enforcement, Fire Services and First Responders are called on everyday in our communities to protect, serve and heal. Much of that service has a profound impact in the lives of those servants and their families. We believe that their service not only demands our respect but also our support in the communities they serve or have served in every way possible. Because of that we want our events to be transparent in how we give back (unless otherwise noted).
80% of the proceeds gathered from our events will go directly to support our first responder brothers and sisters who have been adversely impacted by the job. We will help those first responders by paying for professional counsel that is seperate and secret from their departments so that there is no fear of job security for seeking help. We will help financially with any bills we are able to help with during temporary inability of the first-responder to work. We will also provide support by connecting the first responders to others who understand the nature of the job becuause they have been there. In this way we are looking to help not diagnose them.
The remaining of the proceeds will go to the planning and execution of the events. This will ensure that the events are done with excellence and will gather the most support possible, facilitate curriculum through The EmPowered Project, training and awareness for departments, and the general public about PTSD, Depression and Suicide among first responders. This will help us develop campaigns to make real change in those servants lives. We are determined to make an impact among our brothers and sisters because we have been there and know there is hope. We are serving those who serve, have served, and have survived the trauma of the war on our streets.

We strive to bring men and women out of the darkness of PTSD, Depression and those undiagnosed, by first giving them the tools and education we developed by experience to combat those things. We also prepare individuals preemptively for the darkness that is inevitably experienced as a military service member or first responder on the job and off the job through continuous mindset training. We also train the general public by offering our experiences and that of our families to give knowledge and understanding first-hand.
The EmPowered Project shines a light and is relentless in its pursuit of eradicating the stigmas associated with PTSD, Depression and Suicidal thoughts in our service men and women. We use various face to face, social media and media platforms to raise awareness to PTSD, Depression and Suicide among our military, law enforcement, fire services and first-responders. We believe that awareness is just the beginning of creating positive change.
Our diverse operations team is available throughout the year for speaking engagements. Each of our stories are unique but our experiences are relatable to business, family, school and life in general. We will encourage, entertain, teach, lead, and push those who will listen.
We want to offer the best training in body, soul and spirit possible to our Military, Law Enforcement officers, Firefighters and First-responders. The EmPowered Project HQ is the physical location to train. grow and belong. If you live, or work in and around the Alpharetta, Ga. area and want to train physically at a facility that is owned and operated by a former LE officer, is military and first responder friendly, and genuinely understands and cares about the issues that service men and women face, this is the place to be.
This membership is only for current members of the Military, Law Enforcement, Fire services and First Responders. Special circumstances may apply.
Proof of service will be required.
Cost is only $39.99/ month
In physical training we prepare our bodies. We train to create a buffer between sickness, disease and death. The more consistent we train, the stronger, healthier and better conditioned we become. This is part of our mission. This is not a hobby. Through HARD physical training we create more effective and efficient humans who are more resilient in general, resistant to illness and disease and better at everything they do.
We have been designing and coaching effective and efficient training programs professionally since 2008. With over two decades of experience in training and a over a decade in program design, Let us train you to be your absolute best and have the tools to actually keep your progress
It absolutely does not matter where you are starting from, but it absolutely matters that you start!
Our program is designed to maximize the development of the 10 general fitness skills, but with an emphasis on strength.
We believe that through strength everything else that you will face in real life will become easier. Our program design will prepare you for the known challenges along the way as well as the unknown. You will be more resilient and prepared for anything life throws at you.
Training requires a commitment to learning. It requires us to listen, watch and process new and old thoughts. As we begin to hear things that challenge and stimulate our thoughts we are responsible for action. There is no such thing as training in any capacity that doesn't have action. Capture your thoughts while you train. Listen/watch our free resources. We promise that our content will in some way challenge you to grow in how you think, in how you process your emotions and in how you will be influenced by your will. We are encouraged in the changes we have seen in our own lives for the better and are excited to train you to see those positive changes in your Mind, Will, and Emotions as well. You are worth the effort, and we are always available to talk when things get heavy or you just need to think out loud to someone. Dr. Caroline Leaf, foremost neuroscientist, author and speaker recently conveyed that merely talking about our life experiences will help take the power away from negative emotions and strengthen positive emotions.
The innermost part of you is connected to God/Higher Power or you are left with a missing piece in your life. Training this connection is really more about listening and applying what you hear. That process is called faith and action. We believe that there are so many ways to strengthen the connection to God/Higher Power and we aren't stuck in a box on this but a few practical ways we have found over our years of training seem to be universally effective.Prayer, Silence, Reading scripture, Worship, Song, Contemplation, are just a few. As we begin to deepen this relationship through training our perspective and efficacy in all we do improves. Without this training our Body and Soul (mind, will, and emotions) will only take us so far towards our potential.
