The I AM Story
Santisha Walker, Founder
Certified Wellness Coach
Welcome to The I AM Experience, a nurse-created fitness and athleisure apparel line, offering wellness support. The mission of The I AM Experience is to deliver a fitness and wellness experience empowering individuals to intentionally cultivate the best version of themselves within, reflecting out to the world. The ultimate vision of The I AM Experience is to offer high-quality apparel and supportive wellness products that will enhance your journey to express the fittest and most well version of yourself. The I AM Experience is more than a fitness apparel line, but an exclusive fitness and wellness journey! It is a safe haven where you can be yourself! This experience is for: 1) those who want to get started living a fit and total well life, and 2) those who want to take their wellness to the next level through education and action. The goal is for you to embrace your own I AM experience and while doing so feel empowered and ready to reflect your best self out to the world. With a focus on well-being for the mind, body, and soul, The I AM Experience emphasizes becoming more conscious of what you say after the words "I am". These are two of the most powerful words you can ever speak out of your own mouth. They can create your entire world. Whatever follows the words "I am" strongly influences what is and what will be. You are encouraged to become aware of what you are saying about yourself. Along with being more conscious of what follows "I am", there is also action needed to bring what you are speaking into existence. There is a profound quote by Jim Rohn that states, "Affirmation without discipline is the beginning of delusion". I have lived this quote and wholeheartedly believe in putting action behind what I speak. Therefore, I understand that simply speaking doesn't magically make changes appear. We must put in the work toward what we are speaking! Every aspect of The I AM Experience directly impacts your life and is centered on your expression of "your I AM". From the I AM Apparel, to the I AM Energy Workout Mix, I AM Exclusive Wellness Kits, Wellness Empowerment Hub, Health & Wellness Professionals Catalog, and Discussion Groups, each subset of The I AM Experience empowers you to cultivate the best version of yourself from the inside out.
How it started
The I AM Experience was cultivated during 2020 amongst the uncertainty, confusion, fear, and repeated chaos the world was experiencing. Due to the stress and increased work demands that came with the pandemic, before I knew it I was unhealthy in my physical body and I needed to make a change to get back to feeling like myself. I felt compelled to increase my physical activity to keep my immune system strong enough to continue to serve as a nurse during the pandemic. I became still internally and began to seek God for better understanding of my role as a healthcare professional taking care of others, as well as needing to care for myself. I felt led to begin incorporating more positive self-talk and positive affirmations into my life. This time was used to remind me of "the power of our tongue" and how our words can affect every situation. As I incorporated positive I AM affirmations into my daily routine, I intentionally shifted my thoughts and words to empowering my mind and body. During this time, I began to notice more positive changes in my personal life. Although there was still chaos throughout the world, I made a conscious choice to alter my perspective and transition my mind, which directly affected my body. I began working out 3-4 days weekly and intentionally consuming certain foods to get me to my desired weight goal. I monitored what I was listening to and watching to protect my mental health, and I also continued to connect with God for spiritual strengthening. A moment that was extremely significant for me during this time was the urge to play I AM affirmations over music while working out at home to various online fitness sessions. Exercising is a vulnerable time and those affirmations paired with the upbeat energy of the music helped empower me while I was working to reach my goals. I then figured, if this process worked for me, how many others could be struggling to find balance and direction, and could benefit from not only repeatedly hearing positive I AM affirmations, but wearing apparel that is a constant reminder that they are exactly who they say they are. From there, The I AM Experience was conceived and I immediately got to work to bring this vision to life. Intentionally cultivating the best version of myself within has allowed me to reflect even more positivity out into the world, and others lives have been changed for the better since they have linked up with The I AM Experience. As a nurse who nurtures others back to health, and as a wellness coach who helps enhance others well-being, it is essential that I share my journey. I AM happy to be able to offer The I AM Experience as more than just a fitness apparel line, but an exclusive fitness and wellness journey promoting physical activity, well-living, and disease prevention. I AM forever grateful.
Founder's Heart For Health & Wellness
I take as many opportunities as possible to educate on the difference between being healthy and actually living a well life, and the role they both play in operating at our best. Choosing to avail myself and my healthcare knowledge as a valuable liaison, I AM intentionally involved with enhancing others' lives and providing practical health & wellness knowledge they can easily and independently put to use. I take much comfort in giving back and serving. Working as a nurse has allowed me to witness first hand the daily struggles, insecurities, and challenges people face, as well as what makes them happy, brings them joy, and helps them keep their spark for life. Now more than ever, with life's many stressors, it is imperative to intentionally take out time to improve our health and strengthen our total wellness. I love witnessing others thrive and living the best version of themselves, and I AM delighted to be able to put my healthcare and wellness knowledge to work through The I AM Experience.
