We are beyond excited to introduce "FirePower Cares" to our members. Our special way to share with you a resource of care and listening to the hurdles, challenges, and pressures of life that hold you back from greatness on and off the training floor.  For the past few years we have been having deep conversations with Vanessa about the various struggles people face (members and trainers included) when life shifts & changes and it derails their progress at the gym. Be it pregnancy, injury, family changes, financial/work pressures, etc, we see how that affects them for a lengthy amount of time.

To that end, we are blessed and thankful to have 2 wonderful people in our community who care so much about our members to offer help and guidance. Starting with this time of year when emotions are swirling, we will test this venture out for a few months to see how much it's needed. Keep an eye out for more vlogs and fun discussions and more from the insightful Coach Mitch and Vanessa from Sister Soulace (aka Slacker). And please, email Vanessa anytime or reach out to her before/after a wod. She'd love to hear from you!


Hi there FirePower family!


Vanessa Slack here (aka “Slacker”), and I’m stoked to be part of an exciting new initiative at FirePower called “FirePower Care.”


For over a decade, FirePower has been proud to deliver top quality coaching and fitness programming as well as cutting edge/innovative practices...add “FirePower Care” to that legacy as we continue to notice and respond to the diverse needs of our gym family.


Here’s what we know: while many of us are hitting PRs on the gym floor, reaching nutrition goals, lifting heavy and sweating hard—we still have difficult stuff going on at work and home; challenges with our bodies (sick or injured) and in our families. That’s real life, friends. “FirePower Care” has been created to support you as you face your day to day challenging “emotional workouts.”


Coach Mitch Creasey and I will be posting short videos (that’s right—FP vlogging!) where we’ll chat about real life stuff that’s sometimes tough to discuss. Our hope is you will gain comfort from knowing you’re not alone as you identify with some of our content; a nod to the adage: “Trouble shared is trouble halved.”


In addition to the “FirePower Care” vlog posts, we have also created a way for you to reach out via email if you are seeking personal, confidential support in the form of a listening ear or a sweaty hug.

I’d be honoured to meet you, please feel free to introduce yourself.I’d love to partner in a WOD—especially if you like to sing LOUD to 80's playlists.


I look forward to being a resource of support for you.


Peace. (Sweat it) Out.
