FIGHT, FLOW, FEEL: TURNING TEENS INTO EVERYDAY FIGHTERS

Fight Flow Feel

Fight Flow Feel is a program started by Joe Buckner and Libby Lyons to provide movement and life skills for underserved teens in Northern Colorado. The 5-week program is based around 4 core values: Respect, Integrity, Loyalty, and Discipline.

The movement consists of boxing(fight), yoga(flow), and meditation(feel) for the first hour, followed by an hour of personal development. The purpose of the program is to give teens valuable tools to help navigate the waters of being an adolescent and also get them moving their bodies in a positive manner.

The first session of the program was held in partnership with The Matthews House, a Fort Collins nonprofit, Lululemon, and YORK Athletics.

FIGHT

If we can grow stronger girls and boys than we can have stronger men and women.”

- Joe Buckner

FLOW

Meditation is lengthening the time between an incident and a response.”

- Libby Lyons

FEEL
Each student was asked to think of a personal mantra at the beginning of the program. At the end of the 5 weeks, they were gifted a pair of the Henry Mid Canvas, where they could artistically bring those mantras to life.

Joe Buckner and Libby Lyons
Libby Lyons traverses between small business owner, business consultant, and yoga teacher. She's been teaching for over 12 years. She loves to offer yoga and fitness as a way to create community and a sense of belonging, as well as an avenue for self-care and development.
Joe Buckner is a coach, business owner, public speaker, and father. Joe believes we either fight or die and he chooses to fight. This mindset has allowed him to fight through prison, homelessness and open his own boxing studio, where he teaches people to fight for their dream life.
