Change Maker Academy

Change Maker is your ULTIMATE health and fitness career guide. In it you’ll learn why making real change will:

  • Turn your passion into a rewarding, life-changing career
  • Make enough money to be financially secure (and then some)
  • Create a flexible schedule, so you can work when you want
  • Find personal and professional balance (and avoid burn-out)
  • Get phenomenal results with your clients—now and forever

 You don’t have to figure it all out on your own.

With thousands of certifications, seminars, websites, and gurus promising advice, it’s difficult for even the best pros to turn their passion for health and fitness into meaningful, measurable success.

Dr Berardi will help you make sense of the chaos and lay out a clear roadmap for turning your passion for health and fitness into work you find joy in, your clients into raving fans, and your career into something powerful and change-making.
