The I AM Story
Santisha Walker, Founder
Certified Wellness Coach
Welcome to The I AM Experience! With a mission to offer a fitness and wellness experience empowering individuals to cultivate the best version of themselves within through intentional use of the words "I am", The I AM Experience serves as a resource promoting physical activity, well-living, and disease prevention through wellness tools, community support, and premium qualilty fitness & statement apparel. The ultimate vision of The I AM Experience is for you to express the most well version of yourself. As you join The I AM Experience's community, and knowledge is obtained to help you reach your fitness and wellness goals, monitoring what you say about your body, mind, and life becomes important. With a focus on true well-being for the mind and body, The I AM Experience emphasizes becoming more conscious of what you say after the words "I am". These are some of the most powerful words you can speak out of your own mouth. They help 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 becoming more conscious of what follows "I am", action is also 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". Simply speaking affirmations is not what causes change to appear. We must affirm, believe, and then put in the work toward what we are speaking! Every aspect of The I AM Experience commissions you to affirm, then take action as you intentionally express"your I AM". From the I AM Energy Workout Mix, the I AM Exclusive Wellness Kit, and Wellness Empowerment Hub to the Health Advocacy E-book & Guide, the Health & Wellness Professionals Catalog, Discussion Groups, and premium quality I AM Apparel, each subset of The I AM Experience empowers you to cultivate the best version of yourself from the inside out. This I AM Experience is for: 1) Those seeking to enhance their well-being and take their life to the next level through substantiated healthcare knowledge and wellness resources. 2) Those desiring to connect with others who are dedicated to living a fit and well life.
How it started
The I AM Experience was cultivated during 2020 amongst the uncertainty, confusion, fear, and 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 help keep my immune system strong enough to continue to serve as a nurse during the pandemic. I focused on becoming more calm 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 affirmations, along with reminders from Biblical scripture. 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. 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 adjusted my diet to get me to my desired weight goal. I monitored what I was listening to, and watching, to protect my mental health. 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 fell so in love with how I was feeling internally and the tranformation that was taking place in my mind, soul, and body that I chose to share my journey and wellness knowledge with others who may be seeking to enhance their well-being and take their life to the next level. What made my journey even more impactful was the ability to actually see "I AM" as I looked at the reflection of myself during workouts. The I AM on the apparel was a constant reminder that I am exactly who I say that I am. Intentionally cultivating the best version of myself within has allowed me to reflect even more positivity out into the world. To witness the lives that have been changed for the better since they have connected with The I AM Experience has evoked much gratitude. As a nurse who nurtures others back to health, and as a wellness coach who help enhance others well-being, it is essential that I share my journey. I AM grateful to be able to offer The I AM Experience as a resource promoting physical activity, well-living, and disease prevention through valuable tools, community support, and premium quality fitness & statement apparel."
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 other's 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."
