fitness instructor training retreat | Revelation Wellness

If you asked me to do it better, I could not. Every part of my Revelation Wellness fitness instructor training retreat was carefully crafted and strategically planned. From the first night of prayer, inviting God to come and heal the physical pain that was brought to retreat, to the departing prayer of praise for the great things He accomplished in all of us, all glory was given to the One who gave us breath.

REVELATION WELLNESS: SET FREE TO FREE OTHERS
