What Exactly is F.I.R.E.?

Many of you have been wondering, what is the fitness towel, what are the empowerment and devotional blogs, and what exactly is F.I.R.E.?!

I want to take the time to formally introduce F.I.R.E. (Fearless Individuals Resistant to Entrapment), which was created to help motivate people to become strong, capable, and adept life-changers and mountain-movers, by coaching them to break all their ceilings and reach new levels in life! F.I.R.E. was formally created in 2008, when I started speaking to youth and young adult groups about establishing and maintaining a healthy self-image. Through F.I.R.E., individuals were awakened to their purpose via encouragement, motivation, transformation, and empowerment, which enabled each person to push through their setbacks and roadblocks and avoid being deflated and discouraged. Ultimately, each person took away an understanding that they too are adept, capable, insightful life-changers, and mountain-movers.

During 2015, God placed on my heart to drive home the importance of maintaining a healthy temple, inclusive of the mind, body, and spirit. Later that year, in the summer, He forged a partnership between Erin Haywood and myself to be the co-founders of One Temple Fitness, which is a brand under the company F.I.R.E.


The mission of One Temple Fitness is to stimulate the mind, strengthen the body, and stretch the spirit by addressing mental health, providing affirmations, engaging in workouts, and meditating on the holy word. One Temple Fitness focuses on breaking barriers that hinder individuals from living a healthy lifestyle by engaging them in interactive discussions and motivating workouts. These stimulated discussions will be based on accountability, responsible decision making, addressing adversity, goal setting, and mental health, just to list a few.
