"Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much" – Helen Keller
In times like this we feel the need for community more than ever. The Fit For Service Fellowship is a family dedicated to helping each other reach their highest potential – financially, emotionally, spiritually, mentally, and physically.
Join Us On The Hero's Journey
Are you ready to cross the threshold of fear and into the realization of your potential? Our 5 day summit will be held in Tahoe in August. Applications for the 2nd Trimester are open now for a limited time.Apply to Waitlist
The strongest purpose in life is to be of service to those you love--and that starts with yourself. But to be of service, you have to be Fit For Service. This means fit financially, physically, mentally, and emotionally. In order to do that we will need to move through the 3 major arcs of the hero’s journey - Training The Body and Mind, Connecting to Consciousness, and Living As The Truth of Who You Are.
Financial, Physical, and Mental Fitness
All humans operate with a hierarchy of needs. Typically we are most interested in being successful and loved as a priority. Until we lose our health, then that becomes the priority. The first trimester is going to be all about setting the foundation up for success. This means focused training on how to grow your personal brand and expand your business, exceeding your aesthetic and functional fitness goals, linking you with the best functional medicine doctors to keep you healthy, and helping you to make friends with the ego that is lurking in the closet. The truth is that you can try to spiritually bypass the Ego, pretend it can be killed or removed, but it will always bubble up from the subconscious. We will face the Ego, take an honest look at our bodies, and train both of them to be of service to our highest ambitions.
Conscious love and connection
What is keeping you from true, passionate Love? What are the stories that keep you small? What are the relationships and distractions you hide behind? How do you let fear and trauma keep you from advancing on your journey? These are the questions we will be asking and answering in the second trimester of the hero’s journey. Because if you don’t solve for these problems, they will bleed out into all aspects of your life. Just think of how much time, health and productivity your quest for love and community has cost you. To make it through the other side of all of these challenges will require a commitment to transformation, and we’ll be there with you every step of the way.
The Truth Of Who You Are
This is the advancement and culmination of everything we have learned through the first and second trimester. The truth of who you are is the integration of body, ego, and consciousness. When you find the harmony of this truth, anxiety and depression fades to the background. Fear is shown to be the illusion that it is. You become a human BEING, not just a human DOING. Now having become more fit for service, we will also focus on how we can maximize our gift to the world. We will work on how to impact people in the biggest way possible. Whether that is creating a company or a non-profit, or simply sharing your story with the biggest audience. If you set your heart to it, in any moment with the experiences you’ve learned this year, you will be able to identify who you are. From that ultimate purview, you will always know the next best step you should take.
The Fit For Service Fellowship Summits And Optional Meetups
Tulum, Mexico - February Summit 2020
An amazing beach, incredible organic food, and perfect February sunshine, Tulum will be our first destination to gather. In 2019 we experienced a Temazcal sweat lodge ceremony, a Mayan Clay ritual, a party on the beach, and daily workshops from amazing coaches. Expect all of that and more for 2020.
Austin, Texas - July Meetup 2020
For the Austin meetup you will have access to the entire Onnit campus for the duration of the meetup, including the Onnit Gym, Black Swan Yoga, and our martial arts facilities. In addition, we will have some of the best food and drink the state of Texas has to offer right here in our own backyard.
Lake Tahoe, Nevada - August Summit 2020
This will be our first visit to Lake Tahoe, but you can expect a deep immersion with nature. We will share vision quest rituals, Wim Hof-style cold plunge in the lake, ecstatic dance, and workshops surrounding the confrontation with the Ego and the inner shadow.
Sedona Arizona, October Summit 2020*
Sedona was perhaps the crown jewel experience of 2019, wherein we experienced heart opening shamanic breathwork, an incredible outdoor ecstatic dance concert, sunrise hikes, and amazingly transformative workshop experiences.
Miami, Florida - New Years Meetup 2020*
If we’re going to bring it all together, might as well do it with some sunshine, some beautiful ocean, and a lot of bright souls by our side. The Miami you will experience is not the Miami you might have known before - Because you will not be the same person in Miami. I don’t promise much, but I can promise you that.

Why Am I Doing This?
1 - There is an old maxim that says that if you want to learn, teach. My goal is to be as fit for service as I am possibly capable. That means truly knowing who I am. One of the best ways to do that is to continually teach and learn from others. The members of the fellowship in 2019 have been some of the greatest mirrors and teachers I could have hoped to find in this life.
2 - Second, the fellowship aggregates a group of people, a tribe, that collectively is far more powerful than any one individual can do on their own. The experience of the fellowship in 2019 with 150 awakened individuals has shown me how exponentially powerful it is to form a true community based on principles of unconditional forgiveness, receptivity, and growth.
3 - Third, this fellowship is going to help me and all the members create the abundance that we can apply to the greater good. Money is a store of energy, and none of us need to be shy about our desires to solidify this resource. This fellowship should help all of us become wealthier, and also teach us how to use the inherent energy contained within money for the most impactful purpose.
WHO IS THE MASTERMIND FOR?
The fellowship is not for those content with playing small. This is for you who are willing and able to play big. I love that so many people hand out lunch bags to the hungry or volunteer their time in shelters for the homeless. You are the everyday heroes of our society. And I’d love to be able to work personally with every one of you. But I can’t. I don’t have the resources for everyone. The fellowship will have access to my personal time, along with all the inspirational leaders, healers, and mind movers of my inner circle. We are going to hold nothing back in preparing those invited to the fellowship to be fit for service.
So I have to be selective -- the fellowship has to be for those of you who are able to do the most good. Those of you that want to alter the upstream structures and systems of the world that lead to downstream poverty, trauma, and conflict. Those of you that can handle the weight of accumulating resources and connections and directing them to be utilized for the good of all. The selection criteria in the application is stringent, but if you have the right heart, spirit, and intentions you will be invited to join the fellowship.
What To Expect
The three summits are the heart of the Fit For Service Fellowship experience. This is where we will fly in our VIP guests and coaches, participate in transformational practices, and form the bonds of community that we will cherish for a lifetime.
Some of the practices include shamanic breathwork, ecstatic dance, sweat lodge, Wim Hof style cold exposure, meditation, tai chi; and that is just scratching the surface of what we experienced in 2019.
In addition to the experiences, this will also provide an even deeper dive with myself and my whole family of coaches to help you tackle any challenges you may have discovered along the way.
Members are responsible for their own travel, lodging, and meals, though there will be a few group meals covered by FFS throughout each summit. Attendance isn't mandatory, and we will do our best to share footage and insights from each summit for those of you who don't make it. But, the more of these you can make, the better!
Optional Triannual Meetups:
Three optional meetups will be spaced in between the summits, and allow an opportunity to accelerate the bonds within the community. Meetups will be more focused on social gatherings and shared experiences, rather than on content pertaining to the curriculum. Because of the informal nature of the meetups, most of the experiences at the meetups will be out of pocket.
Monthly Zoom Calls with Me:
This is a chance to talk to me in a small group format where everyone will get a chance to speak and ask any question they like. I am committed to radical vulnerability and openness, so truly, you can ask me anything and I'll do my best to help you.
Monthly Financial Optimization Support with Myself:
This is an opportunity for indepreneurs, freelancers, founders, and CEO's to learn from myself and a league of extraordinary experts on matters pertaining to your vocation.
Private Instagram account:
With only other members, myself and coaches. This will be the platform where myself and other coaches will host live calls, post stories, and invite you to weekly challenges that will push you to expand your comfort zone. Every Thursday at 2pm we will host a Q&A with the coaches via Instagram Live.
Weekly Assignment and Accountability:
There will be a catalyzing assignment every week designed to challenge you with further growth. Our coaches will check in with you via instagram on the assignment as part of your accountability. This isn't 'homework' and we are not school teachers so we aren't going to grade you or kick you out if you don't do it.
You will be placed in a smaller Connection group with other members at the beginning of each trimester. This will be your personal accountability tribe. You all will share weekly zoom calls on your progress, and each of you will be challenged to bring value to this group, essentially, to be of service to them. The groups will also work to develop ideas that we can bring from incubation into reality, for the good of all.
Media of the Month:
Books, Podcasts, Documentaries and Movies are some of the fastest ways to level up. With all of the availability now for every form of media we are going to expect members to follow along with key media sources where insights are aggregated and expounded.

If you are accepted into the fellowship, you are making a commitment to be of service. Always to yourself first, because if you are not of service to yourself you will not be of service to anyone. But you will also be expected to be of service to your fellows in the fellowship. We're all in this together. There will be weekly challenges we invite you to participate in, and we will have 6 opportunities to connect in person. These are the times where the most radical transformation happens. Commit to making as many of these as you can.
To Be A Bodhisattva
In Buddhism there are those who are called Bodhisattva. A Bodhisattva is one who could personally find enlightenment sitting on top of a mountain somewhere, or the distraction of pure hedonism, but chooses not to do it, because they commit themselves to ease the suffering of the world. The fellowship is for the Bodhisattvas in our midst. Those that can delay personal satisfaction, because their compassion for those who suffer is so strong that they cannot stay away from the fight. They cannot sit on the sidelines while their fellow humans fall around them. They cannot spend their days in idle pleasure while their mother, the Earth, is dying. Are you Bodhisattva? If you are, I welcome you into the fellowship.
Additional Digital Offering
In light of the current global situation, the coaches and myself are investing more time and energy into bringing the fellowship digital community-building experiences. I’ll be hosting podcasts with thought-leaders, musicians, and artists on our private Instagram account. We’ll be live-streaming community experiences like breathwork and ecstatic dance. Also, each member of the fellowship will get a one-on-one coaching call with Kyle Kingsbury, Caitlyn Howe, Erick Godsey, or myself.
What is the Investment to Join?
You have three options:
Every one of us has a unique gift to give the world. Beyond the resources you might bring to bear, there is something intangible that we all have. A way that we can impact others or the collective in a special way.
For those of you selected, this fellowship is going to help you discover, and then bring forth this medicine to the world. Are you ready to be fit for service? Are you ready to join us? If so, fill out the application. I hope to meet you soon.
- What is my tuition paying for?
The majority of the tuition will go towards helping create the summits which the members have found radically changed their lives. The remainder of the tuition goes to paying the amazing team I have behind the scenes and allows us to bring in guest performances, coaches, and speakers.
- What is the recommended time commitment?
The more you give to this community the more you will receive. At a minimum, we suggest you give 5 hours a week between the Instagram challenges, Instagram Lives, the Zoom calls, and interaction on the member Slack channel. The option to connect and gain additional support from fellow members on our WhatsApp chat channel is available as well.
Then, of course, there are the summits. Be prepared to come and fully immerse yourself in the community for 5 days for each one. This fellowship is your sandbox, you can do the bare minimum and chill on the side, or you can jump in the middle and saturate yourself in the love, connection, and opportunity this community will provide.
- WHAT DO I GET AS AN FFS MEMBER?
You will receive access to a private Instagram group that will have weekly challenges, member highlights, Q&As with the coaches, Weekly Masterclass Zoom calls from one of the coaches, direct Zoom call with Aubrey once a month, potential opportunity to host a workshop at one of the three meet-ups, access to the 3 summits and 3 optional meet-ups, and the introduction to over 100 like-minded brothers and sisters that will transform your life, deepen your soul-network, and open your heart. You will be transformed.
- What if I can’t attend a summit?
If you can’t make it to the summit, please take that into consideration when you enroll. We do not offer a discount for membership if you cannot attend a gathering, although if a conflict should arise, you have the option to withdraw if you choose. The online content alone can change your life, we know that, and if you are proactive, you will likely meet life-long friends through WhatsApp, Zoom calls and the Instagram group, but the summits have a magic that is beyond articulation, so we highly encourage members to connect in-person whenever possible.
- What if I only want to come to the summits?
Then come! The price will stay the same, given the value of the summits, but we’d strongly recommend you at least keep your awareness on the weekly challenges so you can see what the unfolding story of the community is. For the price of a trimesterly membership in FFS you will have the full retreat experience that is offered in other places without the supplementary content and ongoing community support, so if you can at least attend the summit, you will get your money's worth. The summits are powerful enough catalysts to make your tuition more than worth the experience.
- What if I can’t afford this, but I really feel I’m meant to be a part of this?
We appreciate the hundreds of people we know will hear the call and feel they are meant for this. We don’t want you to put yourself at financial risk to join this, so below are the three resources we’d recommend you look into until your financial situation is ready for this investment.
Study and live Own The Day, Own Your Life
I put my heart, blood, and soul into this book. It has many of the fundamental practices I use everyday. This is the blueprint to begin upgrading your mind, body, and spirit.
Consider joining Go For Your Win ($97)
If you are still looking for your Mission, the thing you were born to do in this life, and you want to find that, Go For Your Win is the best tool I can offer you. It is a 15-week course that will help you identify your mission, cultivate essential skills, and overcome resistance. We’re continually humbled by the impact this course has had on people in the tribe.
To find out when the next Go For Your Win enrollment opens, follow me on Instagram.
Start a local Fellowship
Everything I talk about on the podcast, write about on the blog, and share on Instagram are tools given freely for the good of all. Get together with friends once a week and discuss these ideas. Help each other, inspire each other, and watch the miracles that unfold.
- Study and live Own The Day, Own Your Life
- What are the terms of service?
Basically, be a good person. If you show up, contribute, and do the work, you will always have a place here. We reserve the right to remove you without refund if you begin to infringe on other member’s safety, health, or freedom.
- What is the Refund Policy?
If you are dissatisfied with your experience or if your financial situation changes, you are always welcome to opt-out. However, there are a few stipulations.
The majority of our expenses go to producing the summits. So, if you are a monthly-payment member, we consider this a payment plan for the full trimester (May through August), offered as a courtesy to make your investment more manageable within your budget.
Monthly payment members will be committed by contract to the full price of the four-month trimester you are enrolled in once you have attended a summit.
For example, if you paid for the year, and asked for a refund in February before the Tulum summit, we would prorate you from March 1st. If you asked for a refund in February after the Tulum summit, we would prorate you from May 1st.
If you paid for the trimester only once you attended the summit, there are no refunds as your tuition has already been allocated to your summit attendance.
- What are the dates of the summits and meet-ups for 2020?
- July 10-12 Austin Meetup
- TBD weekend in August - Tahoe Summit
- October 15-19 - Sedona Summit*
- December 31 - Miami NYE*
*Subject to change
It is important to note that the Summits are were the coaches will be proving curriculum, workshops, immersive experiences like sweat lodges and ecstatic dance.
The meet-ups are informal invitations to meet with the other members in the fellowship. There will be no official programming. If you have to pick between the two, the summits should take priority.
- Are flights and lodging included?
Flights and lodging are not included. For each summit, we will do our best to provide discounted rates and suggestions on nearby hotels and lodging options until they fill up, but the members often opt to share space in large Air Bnbs together, and that can dramatically reduce the cost of lodging (and they tend to be the go-to places after-hours).
