Activate the
Inner Champion

Activate the Inner Champion (AIC) is a Professional Development & Mentoring program for Coaches of Teen Athletes created by Live Free Mindfully (LFM). It is a holistic approach that offers coaches cross-training knowledge, skills, and tools to cultivate the “whole athlete.”


Coaches will learn basic yoga and mindfulness techniques to help their athletes optimize the mind-body connection, which is fundamental to empowering athletes to reach their full potential on and off the field.


This training embodies character-building principles through the understanding of LFM’s 4-Pillars to Empowerment - Strong Mind, Brave Heart, Wise Body, and Noble Spirit. As coaches embody these principles themselves, they will better support their athletes toward becoming champions, both in sports and in life.
