What is a Hero Journey?

The Hero Journey, Fitness for Body, Mind, & Soul, is not a “gym”; It’s an experience! Inspired by Michael Stephens’ personal journey from a boxer to a healing facilitator, the Hero Journey embodies all the attributes of the Hero Myth within itself. The workout can be broken down into a fundamental cycle: Separation, Journey and Return. That is the process of the hero being separated from their comfort zone, their journey into the physical and mental unknowns, and their return home with new knowledge and power gained through their workout experience. This is the model of The Hero Journey!
