|We would like to welcome you to our family
Brian and Silesia grew up next door to each other in a small Midwestern town of Hays, Kansas. Though they had one date in high school, it wasn't their time and they went their separate ways. After high school life took Brian to Maine, Missouri, Dallas, TX., and Denver Colorado and Silesia to Florida and Texas. With no knowledge of each other Brian and Silesia would both choose the same exact careers and both were called to a life of inspiring and teaching others to embrace the beauty and power of healthy living. As fate would have it 18 years after their first date, God brought Brian and Silesia back together again, not only with a powerful new and exciting health and fitness ministry, but as best friends and soul mates.
During their 18 year absence both Brian and Silesia were busy. Silesia had a family and spent many years as a single mom of two beautiful children. Through the many challenges Silesia learned to juggle family and career and the importance of healthy living. Her desire to educate people in fitness led to numerous accomplishments in this field. Silesia received her professional personal training certification through Baylor Sports Medicine Inst. in Houston Texas and went on to become an examiner and lecturer for them. She has taught multiple classes in yoga, aqua aerobics, high and low impact step aerobics and spinning. She has been a top contender in a national fitness competition, has been featured on radio talk shows and has been a sought after speaker at women's conferences. Women everywhere line up to hear her amazing testimony of courage, faith, love and life transformation.
After high school Brian received a Kinesiology degree from Northwest Missouri State University, played some college football and became "Mr. Northwest" in Missouri by winning first place and overall grand champion in the Mr. Northwest bodybuilding championships. No longer in competition, Brian now enjoys a more realistic lifestyle in health and fitness which he teaches daily. While living this lifestyle Brian became master certified as a professional personal trainer through the National Strength and Conditioning Association. Brian is known nationally for his exacting standards in personal training. Being a steward of the heart, Brian also put his creative passions to work as an accomplished author, artist and pianist. He is the author of a life changing book and journal and personal training system, Courage to Change, which Spiritually transforms a person into the healthy image of God. Brian has also been a teacher and mentor to other professional personal trainers. He is the founder of Faith in Action Seminars and is himself a testimony of courage, integrity, faith and health which he openly and excitingly lives and shares with passion.
The story of how Brian and Silesia were reunited is amazing and a true testament of God's restoration for all who love Him. Brian and Silesia were married on March 25th of 2005 and together have become a sought after husband and wife dream team. They love the Lord with all they are and, along with their two beautiful children Shelby and Matthew, live in a small community north of Houston, TX. Powerful speakers and motivators, Brian and Silesia deliver their life changing "Courage to Change" message privately, corporately and through the church. They do this through their Faith in Action Seminars, personal training (individual and group), books and journals.
