About Us


The Goal of S.H.A.P.E. U.P & C.O.A.C.H is to transform our culture by providing programs and services that enhance the quality of life and improve the physical, cognitive, emotional and social development of individuals currently battling cancer and cancer survivors. Our Secondary Focus is to target the demographic deemed “at-risk” to potential health issues due lack of or minimal engagement in an exercise regiment. Our mission is to help them acquire the confidence, self-esteem and sense of well being they need to lead healthy, productive and rewarding lives. 

This in turn helps to deter the cycles of cancer, obesity, diabetes and minimize the aspects of future medical conditions. A strong emphasis will be placed upon the youth (10-18 years of age).

The main aim is to create a process for long term success. Regular physical activity will jumpstart a process that will eventually reinforce a mind-set of perseverance that will manifest itself into a habit effecting all aspects of life. S.H.A.P.E. U.P. & C.O.A.C.H. will illustrate that if someone can continue with an exercise program for an extended period of time, the physical activity will no longer be looked upon as something undesirable. People go from thinking of exercise as something they must do to something they want to do.


According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Cancer is the 2nd leading cause of death in Americas, second only to heart disease. The researchers at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in a 2016 study of the relationship between physical activity and cancer has shown that greater levels of leisure-time physical activity were associated with a lower risk of developing 13 different types of cancer. The risk of developing 7 cancer types was 20 percent lower among the most active participants as compared with less active participants. The American Cancer Society confirm and extend the evidence for a benefit of physical activity on risk and support its role as a key component of population wide cancer prevention and control efforts.

Secondary Focus

Childhood obesity has tripled over the past thirty years. It’s a problem being addressed by  schools, communities, families and government programs, with the clear consensus that our youth need to be eating better and exercising more. Despite local and federal efforts to combat obesity in elementary, middle and high schools by promoting nutrition and exercise, it’s a dilemma facing administrators around the country. A combination of budget cuts and testing pressures has made physical education and other efforts to boost kids fitness levels expendable in many districts.

It is estimated that by 2030 fifty percent of the U.S population will be obese. We can strive to stop this projected trend by illustrating to people that they can take charge of their physical and emotional bodies through positive thoughts and engaging in healthy eating habits accompanied with regular exercise. This can be achieved by shifting your paradigm. It starts by changing your mind set and attitude. People must realize that changing your attitude will not change the world, but that changing your attitude will change your consciousness and make new worlds visible.

Our future lies in the hands of our youth. They are the most precious part of our lives and the greatest resource on the planet. Through touring exercise shows and educational programs we intend to deter the cycles of cancer, obesity, diabetes and other medical ailments that can be avoided by proper diet and exercise. Striving to enlighten as many lives as possible and help build better lives one adult/child at a time.

Most of us think we don’t have enough time to exercise, the truth is we don’t have time not to.

Our Training

S.H.A.P.E. U.P. & C.O.A.C.H.'s intent is to provide the tools necessary to take the sometime monotony out of exercising. This can be accomplished by varying the type and style of exercises. If an individual is exercising for the first time or starting back after a long hiatus, exercising can be a difficult excursion. This is why a good support system is essential to a successful workout regiment. This could be in the form of a workout partner or partners.

The format that the S.H.A.P.E. U.P. & C.O.A.C.H. program utilizes is based on teamwork and fun. Two simple ingredients with amazing results. The title name is self explanatory as it relates to teamwork. The S.H.A.P.E. U.P. & C.O.A.C.H. premise is that in order to get better at virtually anything in life you've got to enjoy what you do and you've also have to work with someone that is better than you. People must become the head of their life and not the tail. With exercise you can't pay someone to do it for you, you have to do it yourself. Exercise is the single most significant investment we can ever make for ourselves. Unlike a house or a car, which can be lost due to extreme weather or an accident, the human body is irreplaceable. The human body is the only instrument we have with which to deal with life and we need to recognize the importance of taking time to regularly maintain and tune it. Most of us think we don't have enough time to exercise, the truth is we don't have time not to.
