What does a session look like?

Psychoeducation

Every class offers psychoeducation that is relevant to the issues first responders face. Responders learn about concepts such as changing your thought patterns for success, increasing performance, taking control/letting go, stress management, goal setting, tactics for communication, building relationships, establishing boundaries and much more. Coaches use worksheets, videos and activities to help you learn and work through the concepts taught each week. 

Application

Coaches help first responders practice the concepts they learn, in a safe environment, through fitness. Workouts provide a modality for first responders to practice and reinforce what they have learned. Whether it is positive self talk, stress management, communication or risk taking, workouts challenge you to address your weaknesses and build confidence in your successes. 

Group Sharing

Shared experiences and challenges create faster bonding amongst the group members. Group sharing allows time to process what is learned in session as well as what is going on in your lives. You will build relationships by investing in each other, creating trust and working on communication skills. 

Mindfulness

The end of class will offer a 5-10 minute mindfulness component to achieve all aspects of wellness.

Mindfulness has been proven to help relieve stress, reduce rumination, enhance emotional regulation, and increase cognitive function.
