Stress is killer. Literally.

Even though we can land on the moon, clone sheep, and build a particle accelerator, we’re constantly baffled by HOW TO remove stress from our lives. The secret: you can’t. Your body needs stress to survive. The fix is turning your bad stress (BurnOut) into good stress (BadAss).

If you stay in a relationship you secretly loath, you’re choosing bad stress. If you decide to start a new exercise routine, you're choosing good stress. The chain reactions of bad stress start with elevated cortisol levels and inflammation, which lead to health issues of every kind. This wears us down from a cellular level on up to our major biological systems.

Stress is an obstacle we face constantly.
Are you conquering it, or is it killing you?

Stress Kills the Brain

Stress generates free radicals that destroy brain cells and stop the generation of new neurons. The stress hormone Cortisol creates glutamate, which then punches holes in brain cell walls causing them to die.

High stress levels make the blood-brain barrier leaky, which lets things in you don’t want like pathogens, heavy metals, chemicals, toxins, grumpy people, bad hair days, and drool.

Stress Kills the Heart

Stress changes in the way blood clots, which increases the risk of heart attack. According to the American Heart Association, stress influences heart health by high blood pressure as well promoting unhealthy self-medicating behaviors, like overeating, drinking and smoking.

Stress Kills Your Stomach

Chronic stress triggers painful gastrointestinal issues like IBS, which makes you more likely to suffer from stress-related psychiatric disorders, including anxiety and depression.

Stress Kills Your Youth

Telomeres are the caps at the end of each strand of DNA that protect our chromosomes, like the plastic tips at the end of shoelaces. Without the coating, shoelaces become frayed until they can no longer do their job. Stress does the same thing to our cells' telomeres. They become damaged and our cells can't do their job.

Stress wrinkles are real. So is rapid aging. When cells stop working properly, all kinds of nasty things can happen like ______ ( insert disease here ).

Stress Kills Your Immune System

Stress suppresses the immune system raising the risk of viral infection and other diseases. Once your body grows resistant to elevated cortisol levels caused by stress, the immune system goes down hill.

Stress Kills Your
Metabolic System

Fat. Fatter. Fattest.
That's what high cortisol levels do. They boost belly fat. Which, increases your risk for disease. And, that's bad.

Stress Kills Sleep

Yes. It's true. Unless you're getting 8-9 restful hours sleeping each night, your are either stressed, or you're stressing your body in a really bad way. In either case, things get bad fast.

BadAss Island is a virtual TOP SECRET Stress Conquering Training Base

Conquer STRESS at BadAss Island: a virtual top secret training facility hidden in the South Pacific, specializing in turning Charred Remains into Charged BadAsses.

BurnOut recovery can be long (it took me years). To speed things up, I created this Top Secret online workshop to quickly take you from Charred to Charged!

Imagine: Your flight has landed at BadAss Island’s secret facility and you've just settled into the Comfort Zone. You’re ready to start training and crush your first stress obstacle at the Cutback Cliffs. 

I'll personally coach you from BurnOut to BadAss with themed classes, group support, live coaching, direct access to me and more. 


BurnOut Sucks Your Health

3 out of 4 doctors visits are for ailments caused by stress. 48% feel their stress has increased in the last 5 years. Science now links Stress directly with major diseases like rapid again, heart attacks and cancer. Are you hitting the wall, or climbing over it?

BurnOut Sucks
Your Cash

USA employers spend $300+ BILLION annually on stress related problems. That’s $20,000 per working person every year. If it costs companies this much, how much is it costing you?

BurnOut Sucks Your Energy

Stress fuels insomnia and depression. These two lovely issues zap your energy. By 2020 the World health organization says depression will surpass cancer and heart attacks in disability and death. Are you conquering stress, or is it crushing you?

BurnOut Sucks Your Productivity

People suffering from high stress levels have lower engagement, are less productive and have higher absenteeism levels at works than those not under excessive pressure. 60% of lost workdays each year can be attributed to stress. 

BurnOut Sucks. Seriously.

The World Health Organization states stress IS the epidemic of the 21st century. And, while all this totally sucks, the good news is that science shows stress-related illness and diseases often revert when you turn bad stress (BurnOut) into good stress (BadAss).

Did you know 3 out of 4 working people suffer BurnOut? Stress-related illness and missed work cost the U.S. economy $300 billion every year. This means chronic stress is costing you more than just cash. BurnOut seriously sucks away your body, your brain, and your bank account!

Are you going to hit the wall, or conquer it?
Melissa Gordan

We’re simply too busy and are paying the price. Eléa is leading the charge to live with exuberance through her BadAss methodology. She clearly knows the terrain so well. Trust her leadership!
