Mountain Experience

Provo, Utah | Group 1: August 6-8  (3 Day) | Group 2: August 7-8 (Overnight)
Maximize Life Through Health
Body, Mind, Spirit & The Mountain

What if, in a short matter of time, you learned to push your body, mind, and spirit further than ever before?  Life can be cluttered, busy, and distracting, to the point where we forget our capacity for greatness. This experience will not provide anything easily, but if you are willing to put forth, effort, thought, and self-reflection; this experience can serve as a reference in the future to help fuel your plans, goals, and righteous desires by taking you to a state never before achieved. One that will form and instill great habits.

We will summit the face of our mountain without a trail, meditate, set goals, visualize, and push our bodies to the limit.  We will also learn how to fuel and take care of bodies to help us maximize our entire self. This will all be done while sustaining a high level of focus and self-reflection, away from distractions through mental training.  This will be a unique experience you do not want to miss.

PURPOSE OF THE MOUNTAIN EXPERIENCE

The Mountain is a tough, grueling hike that takes anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 hour to summit. It is an uphill, challenging hike in nature that can involve some small amounts danger and unpredictability. We have done this hike over 150 times combined, and with the exception of minor cuts and bruises on occasion, we have been safe.  The beauty of this climb is the number of times your body will ask you to turn back. Every step is just as hard as the next. As we climb, there is one rule: keep going and never stop. The mountain is metaphoric in the sense that all your reasons for quitting and turning back on the journey fade out as you get closer to your objective.  The top provides serenity and freedom from doubt, fear, and opposition. The feelings of clarity and pride are magnified when you realize what you have just accomplished. Achieving such a hard feat shows you that with a little perseverance, effort, and positive thinking makes you realize, anything is possible with the the right mindset and effort.   The mountain feeds you with many positive feelings that cannot be described unless you have personally been to the top. This is the experience we hope to share. In a day and age when we are so connected, busy, and our minds seem to be cluttered with many unnecessary and overwhelming thoughts. The summit is a great place to reconnect, re-center, and to re-focus on all the important things in your life, without the distractions that we face each and every day.  For 3 friends, 2 professional basketball players, and a former D1 collegiate football player (now entrepreneur), it is a place of inspiration and an experience with emotions that parallel into forming great habits in all walks of life. There isn’t a way to put the experience into words. It has to be shared. We hope through exposure to Nature’s beauty and wisdom, we may influence others to live a mindful life, focused on direction towards being the person you strive to become while learning  to use all the resources around us; temporal, physical, and spiritual to achieve ideal health and form, to fuel your life with an energy like you have never had before. This mindful state will not be permanent, but in a concentrated dose. We combine the challenges with camaraderie, learning, brotherhood, physical, mental, and spiritual growth. We hope to provide a rich experience that may be used as a source of reference when you need to reconnect and refocus; when we may be too distracted and cluttered.  This experience will give you the feeling of being in harmony with your mind, body, and spirit, more so than you may have been in the past. It will teach you the formula to earn and invite this inspired state of flow in your life. That has been our experience, and we hope to learn more as we continue to climb and we invite you to do so with us.
