KEYNOTE. KEYNOTE, KEYNOTE! ????Introducing the incredible Carole Woodstock!

I spent the first 50 years of my life as a very happy, motivated, and optimistic person.  My world and career was full of people and exercise, with an abundance of music, energy, and endorphins.

This all changed in 2015 while training for a triathlon, where a bike accident left me with a serious and life-changing concussion.

You often hear about athletes with concussions who have to sit out a game or two, get some rest and recovery and then bounce back. I thought that was going to be my story. But it wasn’t. My concussion was particularly severe, and as the weeks turned into months and eventually years, I realized something had gone terribly wrong during my accident.  My once positive and bouncy life was now filled with chronic pain, visual disruption that required special corrective glasses, and auditory and sensory disturbances that made it difficult to tolerate loud sounds or keep my balance while walking.  I was longer able to work, read, watch TV, listen to music, or engage in conversations.  I now found myself trapped in my own empty and solitary world, spending days alone with my thoughts and the persistent pain, wondering how and why everything had changed.  The darkness led to hopelessness, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and ultimately thoughts of suicide.

(Through time and healing)

I learned to accept my situation, to love who I was, to forgive, to be gentle with myself, to let go of the life that was and instead to embrace the new life that lay ahead.

Join Carole on April 13th [Closed], as she shares her journey, her recovery, her tips and her inspiration with you.

Ken (aka SGT KEN®) Weichert

I have provided fitness and resilience training to nearly one million people over the past seven years, both military and civilian. I feel blessed and honored to have worked with Connie Beaulieu at ACTIVATE Fitness Summit and Consumer Expo. She expressed herself with an immense amount of intestinal fortitude, inspiration and integrity, like some of the brightest and boldest Warriors that I have served with during my 34-year career with the US Army. Her vision to change lives through physical and emotional wellness is something that I admire a great deal. Whether it is the expert exercise education or highly effective life coaching, I am completely confident that everyone who attends her events will leave ACTIVATE’d and empowered like never before!
