Not everyone is ready to take their life to the next level, but if you are, Spark Weekend is the place to start.
Life changing talks
In the morning, a curated series of science-driven talks gives you clarity on how to make genuine and measurable improvements in your life in just 30 days. From fitness plans to nutrition guides, you will finally find out what really works, and what’s just another fad.
It’s a difficult and often scary process to change your life on your own. Instead, connect with an accepting and supportive community that makes it fun to improve your life. Your new partners in growth are waiting for you.
Days of Change
The best part about Spark Weekend is that it keeps going. Work with your new Spark Community to tackle one of the many fun Spark Challenges and upgrade your life in 30 days. If you complete 3 challenges, we give you cash back.
It doesn't end when Monday begins
Spark Weekend is designed to stick with you and upgrade your productivity in the long-term
March 14th is just the kick off. We stick with you for the next 30 days to help you implement what you just learned. You’ll get continued access to the Spark Community, connect with designated accountability groups, and get check-ins from the Spark Weekend Team to keep you on the right track.
Free Coaching Call
After 30 days, you’ll get a call from a Spark Weekend Team member to see how you did. We’ll listen to where you might be stuck or how you might have surprised yourself. Then we’ll offer you recommendations, support, and resources to help you stay motivated and keep going towards the next level.
We really want you to make measurable improvements in your life! If you successfully complete at least 3 Spark Challenges over 90 days after the event, you can earn back nearly 100% of what you paid. This is one of the ways you get rewarded for all of the hard work you put in.
Learn from the best in health, fitness, and productivity.

What others are saying about Spark Weekend
Spark Weekend was a huge kick start/slap in the face about
how I needed a better outlook on the things that I was doing and needed to not be so afraid to
think bigger--ridiculously bigger--than I had been.
I’ve been going to bed earlier and getting at least 8 hours of sleep a night
4 of us created an accountability groups and followed each other’s progress after the event. We’re still going!
The environment of Spark Weekend enforced things that I care about in my life.
Spark Weekend helped me reevaluate myself and my life choices! Thanks so much :)
