My approach to the Spiritual Adrenaline lifestyle help you get started slowly, and build on your success through incremental change. I offer a seven-day detox, thirty-day plan that you can modify based upon your health history, present circumstance and long-term goals. After my seven-day detox and thirty-day program, I teach you how to build your own long-term plan by integrating the basic components of Spiritual Adrenaline, exercise, nutrition and spiritual tools, into your daily life. Not only will I teach you how to integrate these tools, I’ll teach you to maximize the benefits by timing the tools you use throughout the day. Your goal will be for you to learn basic tools that can then become your new norm or modified “comfort zone”, where you are sober, happier and healthier.
The education portion of my book tracks the latest peer-reviewed studies in exercise and nutrition science, with an emphasis on people in addiction recovery. I track what nutrients can help lessen cravings, provide your body with anti-oxidants needed to remediate years of substance abuse and malnutrition, and other critical nutritional information to increase your chances of success and long-term happiness in recovery. I also track the latest research on how different types of exercise can help address various issues common for people in recovery, for example anxiety. By learning the basics of my evidence-based approach, you are prepared to then apply the benefits to your life and recovery and achieve your aspirations.

Grant Denton and Lisa Moore came together to create “Rise and Grind”, an innovative program in Reno, Nevada, designed specifically for women in recovery from substance abuse and inter-related mental health issues. The majority of women in recovery also suffer from eating disorders, get addicted faster and have a higher relapse rate. That’s why what Denton and Moore and doing is so important and ground-breaking. They are equalizing the playing field for women in recovery!!!
The 90 day Rise and Grind program includes a weekly course on healthy eating and a daily workout at 6 a.m. at American Iron Gym. The program is intended to build muscle, self-esteem and discipline. Moore told us the ladies “get clean and sober – and they stop doing drugs, but then they need to learn how to do the nutrition part of it the working out part of it.” Denton added it’s a 90 day program that is intended to be integrated into a long-term recovery program. Rise & Grind graduates get a one year free membership to American Iron Gym when they graduate. For more information visit www.facebook.com/riseandgrindreno. Denton and Moore are serious players in recovery but also know how to have fun. Below is video they recreated to celebrate the graduation of a 2018 class. GREAT WORK!!!!!
