AS A CHILD I ALWAYS WONDERED HOW THINGS WORKED

My curiosity wasn't satisfied unless I could pull something apart and put it all back together again. To deconstruct was to understand, and so, in my personal, professional, and wellness path it has been just the same.

SINCE 2005, I'VE BEEN ON A WELLNESS JOURNEY IN SEARCH OF SOMETHING MORE. 

More focus and time to best serve others, to contribute, and to make a difference. More energy in my mind + body to be fully present, and more wellness + emotional intelligence that support me to live life well and to leave a legacy for the ones I love.

Raised in a broken home, with genetics and the odds against me, I found solace from emotional pain by excelling in high school sports. I didn't know it at the time, but this was the start of a cultivation for a lifelong obsession with my personal wellness; something we all deserve to have at the highest level.

OVER THE PAST 15 YEARS OF INSATIABLE CURIOSITY AND LEARNING, I'VE DISCOVERED THAT WELLNESS ISN'T SOMETHING THAT I DO, IT'S SOMETHING THAT I AM. IT'S A FORCE INSIDE EVERYONE THAT GUIDES OUR THOUGHTS AND ACTIONS TOWARDS THE PEOPLE AND THINGS WE LOVE.

My inspiration to coach over 10,000 training sessions as a fitness professional and launch Wellness Force in 2010 is deeply rooted in the fabric of an early childhood & adolescent life plagued with weight & health struggles.

MY WELLNESS FORCE STEMS FROM THE AWARENESS THAT MY OWN HEALTH STRUGGLES ARE BUT A MIRROR OF CURRENT GLOBAL CONSCIOUSNESS, AND THAT THOSE STRUGGLES HAVE ALLOWED ME TO GROW TO BE A FORCE OF WELLNESS FOR MYSELF AND OTHERS.

Being a force of wellness means giving away the gifts and lessons I've learned from over 12 years in the health and wellness industry, and hosting over 140 interviews with some of the most influential leaders in health and wellness in our world. It means sharing the power of wellness, technology + emotional intelligence tools that support healing and transformation for the collective.

AS A COMPANY, OUR VISION IS TO INSPIRE GREATER WELLNESS FOR OVER ONE MILLION PEOPLE THROUGH TECHNOLOGY + EMOTION TO LIVE LIFE WELL.

I invite you to join us on Wellness Force Radio, where each week we bring you access to exceptional people that will allow you to discover the connections between your emotions + healthy habits, to live your best life + enjoy the process.

Love & Wellness,

Josh Trent
