Artem Shevchenko

The Mind, Body, and Soul are all one synnergistic unit. You cannot affect one without the others responding accordingly.

When I was 14 years old, I was traumatized with a severe spinal injury that ended up paralyzing me to the point of debilitation. At this point in my life, I was also consuming tons of junk food, drinking alcohol regularly, and spending my free time playing video games and surrounding myself with people who served me no purpose.

When I was 14 years old, I was traumatized with a severe spinal injury that ended up paralyzing me to the point of debilitation. At this point in my life, I was also consuming tons of junk food, drinking alcohol regularly, and spending my free time playing video games and surrounding myself with people who served me no purpose. I was confused, wandering with no goals, and sick- as many people in society are. After going through a handful of chiropractic adjustments and finally being able to sit upright and actually roll back my shoulders that were severely impinged, I decided enough was enough. I was so tired of being depressed and having pain every day that I did what any fed up person would do in such a situation: I began to do research on my own and took responsibility for my own health.

Throughout the handful of years that followed, I went from being one of the cool party animals that was friends with everyone, to being a hermit with only a few friends because I was so hateful towards all the institutions, corporations and interest groups that control our lives. It wasn't until I was 19 that I began my ACTUAL spiritual journey: looking inside MYSELF and taking the blame for all the harm I had done to my vessel over the years. My hatred was beginning to turn into desire. I had already faced death several times during my teenage years so I had absolutely nothing to lose when I set out to face the world.

I began working at a health food store which opened my eyes to so many wonderful methods of healing and golden opportunities. I also began college for business administration because... well, I had to choose something. All the while I was taking many science classes including biology, human anatomy and physiology, and botany. It was around this time that I met a person who would end up being my trainer in American Kenpo. This was the exact mentorship and practice I needed to show me that I am capable of being an absolute monster if I can learn to gain control of my body. At 21 I realized that I truly wanted to share my knowledge with the world and become a mentor myself. That's when I decided to become a coach.

Fast forward to today, I have trained a myriad of different individuals from young to old, underweight to overweight, male to female. I have ready many books on principles of strength training and conditioning, human biology, nutrition, organic farming, holistic healing, Reiki and meditation, animal agriculture, psychology, intrapersonal communication, and more. I have received trainings from world-renowned companies such as Garden of Life, Vega, and Natural Factors. I have been fully plant-based for over two years and have been training myself for almost 10. But the best part... my back is stronger than ever, with virtually no pain! I am a walking example that if you have the will and you seek growth, you WILL heal. It's an ongoing process, but I can confidentially say that if someone like me can become whole again, then ANYONE can.
