Developed by Michele Gordon AKA Miss Motivational, Creator of Cardio Sweat Party, and Dr. Rachel, clinical psychologist specializing in health and wellness, emPOWERed is designed to inspire you to live your life as a stronger, more powerful and healthier individual. Gone are the days of holding back. This is THE time to speak up, feel FANTASTIC, “do you”, and make a difference!
emPOWERed is influenced by the series of "#MeToo" posts on social media in October 2017. Michele and Dr. Rachel decided things need to change and wanted to create a fun program that would bring women together, provide women with an emPOWERing sweat, and talk about ways to practice self-care that will leave them feeling STRONG, POWERFUL, and CONNECTED. What started as a 20-person event has now grown into a MOVEMENT and a space for women to connect and be inspired.
Our last event was Sunday, March 24th in NYC. Stay tuned for more emPOWERed.
