We're so excited you're here.


Our Goal: 6 weeks. 30 minutes a day. 5 days per week. 

We’ll experiment with challenges and rhythms designed to open us up to a purpose-driven life. Participants (sign up if you haven't already to participate!) will receive special workouts, inspiring stories and the chance to connect with others striving for a common goal. New content will be added below weekly during the Reset Challenge to guide you. 

We are stronger together! If you found us here and are not part of the Reset Challenge, you can join us here.
