Kiki Fkiaras

Founder & Owner of Living Well with Kiki

“Hi, my name is Kiki and I am the founder/owner of Living Well with Kiki. I am a first generation Panamanian and Greek with a passion for health and wellness. I grew up in athletics but did not have the best eating habits. It wasn’t until I graduated college and was in my Master’s program that I realized I could not exercise a bad diet anymore. Once I took ownership of my own eating habits, everything changed. My fitness performance improved, my confidence elevated and my relationship with food changed. Knowing the importance of nutrition, I developed an online nutrition coaching business that helps people learn how to eat as a way of life versus a “diet”. My goal is to live in your world and to help create those everlasting healthy habits that support optimal health and wellness.”

Jody Kennett

Creator of Peak Energy 4 Performance

Jody created Peak Energy 4 Performance as a holistic high performance option that shifted the focus away from output and onto energizing the being, putting energy back in because it is only when we are fully energized at optimal states, that we can have peak performance. Peak Energy 4 encompasses health and well being in four key areas: body, mind, emotions, and environment. It’s about taking the everyday champion, the executive, the entrepreneur, parent, youth and giving them the framework and coaching to perform at their peak not just in body, but mindset, emotional wellbeing, and an optimal environment where they thrive! It is health and peak performance coaching that extends far beyond the body; it will train and coach you to be at your own Olympic peak performance in life, business, career, and leadership.

Jody brings a wealth of experience in the health industry with a diploma in Kinesiology from SFU, ACE Medical Exercise Specialist, and Precision Nutrition Health Coach along with 20 years as a personal trainer. After many years as a personal trainer she saw a pattern of people wanting and needing ‘strength’ and coaching for their life, their leader within, and leading others. This evolved into Jody becoming a certified Leadership, Confidence, Communication, and Whole Person Life Coach leading her to where she is currently completing the ICF PCC designation.

Today she combines the compliment of her two passions in health and leadership to energize and elevate people to be: in peak health and energy, their best self, and an extraordinary leader.

We must never forget that we are not human doings nor are the people in our companies, they are human beings and to optimize the output of your team, we need to energize the ‘being’ before the doing to produce peak health and peak performance.

Kieran Diorio, Perception Sales Coach

Founder of Point A Coaching and Consulting

I was making more comp than ever, but was constantly frustrated and exhausted. I worked like crazy to crush my sales goals, only to constantly struggle with my personal life.

When I turned my attention to my health and home, my work results would nose dive.

Some days, I dreaded going into my office– others, (hard to admit) I dreaded the sound and sight of my garage door opening…

Sales folks: are you ready to get it ALL right? Balance is a cliche, but for high-performing sales people, equilibrium is possible- and the path forward. I discovered this path after many years of seeing performance differentials in my teams and peers, and discovering the key factors behind these differentials.

PERCEPTION illuminates that path. You know– the one that includes killer sales success AND personal happiness. Coming to work-invincible- and showing up in your family and key relationships at your best!

Reach out to take the next step- and don’t forget to mention the StriveNetwork to get a Free ELI Assessment and debrief- we’ll use this together to see what is in your way and talk about clearing your path forward!
