Mindy Heather Blackstien (@heymindheart), together with her husband Jeffrey Kippel, are pioneers in the fitness and bodybuilding world having helped to spearhead these niche cultures. They created the World Natural Sports Organization (WNSO), founded The FAME Agency, produced the FAME World Tour, created Fit Connections with Robert Kennedy, and published FAME Magazine.
As a result, people from all backgrounds, experience levels, age groups and ethnicities successfully transformed into bodybuilders, fitness models and athletes. Many went on to become top influencers, cover models, sponsored athletes, world champions and stars.
Despite this, and after running FAME for about a decade, Mindy came to the realization that being FIT goes beyond appearance. Just because someone looks like a superhero, doesn’t mean they feel like one.
Being solutionary, she chose to discover how to fill this void and course correct. Fueled by a vision, she immersed herself in empowerment education, mentored under leaders in their field and set the intent to discover the people, products and philosophies that could truly help others love better how they think, function and feel.
As a result of her learnings Mindy got certified as a Whole Life coach, Thai yoga massage therapist, energy healer, metaphysical minister, and non-surgical surgeon, Most exciting to her though was her decision to become a Dr of Indigenous Medicine, the pathway she is now on.
Currently Mindy has a show on the Doc STAR TV network. She is the co-creator of Rethink Fitness, a masterclass and certification course for personal trainers, and is set to travel the world to deliver it.
She sits on the Board of Advisors for The Social Universe and Display TV. She just authored a book with her husband —The Ridiculous Adventures of Serbinand — that is both humourous and empowering. And, she is spearheading a gamified movement — and compiling a library of inspiring, impactful individuals and their innovations — to help anyone self-love and self-heal.
Creating a self-love, self-healing library. A group of forward thinking high vibing innovators, inspirations and insightful thought leaders and wellness specialists coming together to raise the social consciousness by empowering you to:
This initiative is a collaborative effort amongst passion-fuelled, purpose-driven, innovative individuals whose methods, messages and innovations make a difference in raising social consciousness, empowering people to discover their passion, while helping everyone self-love & self-heal.
The Ridiculous Adventures of Serbinand Book Series, Co-Author. Book 1 is already published. Book 2 is almost complete. Books 3-9 are already laid out. If you want to laugh — and laugh out loud — then this book series was designed for you. Writing it together with my husband has been quite the experience. Being an ambassador for the Rethink FiT social initiative, I have embedded deep layers of empowerment throughout. However, these messages are intended to be received only by those open to receiving them. (Otherwise they just play a part in the ridiculous(ly fun) storyline.) Those who have mindset shifts that result in new ways of looking at things, and new good-for-me thoughts or actions, can get rewarded for sharing their stories.
It started with Tuning IN with Jeff… and sometimes Mindy: a platform for pros (experts, specialists, innovators, artists & thought leaders) to share wisdom, insights, inspiration and creations to empower, encourage and entice others to enhance themselves, up-level their reality, and enjoy new life experiences. It has since evolved into Tuning INL Life, the Universe & Everything. This is your opportunity to tune in to what others discovered so as to tune in to yourself: inside and out, head to toe, mind to heart, heart to dreams. 💪💖👊 Guests are those who have experience with letting their imagination go wild, dreaming their ultimate dream and making their wants, desires and visualizations each come true.
I enjoy taking photos of people, pets and the parts of this planet that make me look twice, and take my breath away. Spending a lot of time in nature, regardless of season, has me snapping pics often. I love the night sky and the morning sunrise. I often go outside just to look up to the moon, stars and tie dye sky. I also enjoy finding hearts in nature, seeing shapes in clouds, and capturing emotion as I see it.
Many of my photos were featured in the Muskoka Lakes Hotel instagram feed where I lived for almost a year. Other than that, I like take photos for myself.
My plan is to compile them, categorize them and and gift them to those who unexpectedly were featured in them too.
Offering courses, masterclasses and live certifications at locations worldwide to help personal trainers up-level their skills, boost their mind-body awareness and discover ways to help
their friends, family and clients self-love & self-heal.
The notion behind this is that to truly be FiT — happy, healthful, confident and fulfilled — requires gym-goers to take action beyond appearance. Trainers (and their clients) must TAKE ACTION for their mental, emotional, spiritual, functional and social selves too. Doing so helps anyone transform from their ordinary (where they are right now) to their extraordinary, ultimately leading them down the pathway to be their own hero and superhero:
Optional add ons include certifications in Pain-Free Pelvis, Rethink Fitness, the Whole Life Program, Non-Surgical Surgery and the Perfect Pain-free Pregnancy Program.
This is perfect for gym owners who wish to offer additional value for their personal trainers, another service for members and new income for the gym.. Imagine your members tweaking their muscle and getting it resolved on the spot In your very own “Tune Up” room.
Working with Indigenous Elders and innovative doctors to create a doctorate program (2-4 years), that allows wellness-minded individuals — therapists, trainers, specialists and doctors — to enhance their practice by becoming a Doctor of Natural Medicine and/or Doctor of Indigenous Plant Medicine. Following the notion that the psychological rules the biological, and that the invisible creates the physical, this doctorate program not only helps practitioners help themselves and their clients to feel better in their body, it also helps them come to trust, honor, respect, protect and totally love themselves too. This program is set to help people become true doctors — ie educators — who teach others how to self-love and therefore self-heal —> Taking care of strains, sprains, and pains; detoxing the body while also detoxing the mind; enhancing body functionality, mobility and resiliency.
It is Based on Four Pillars:
Sharing my eagle eye perspective to help you discover yourself while propelling your brand, vision, and purpose to new heights. Here I share wisdom garnered from life experiences having mentored with some of the leading minds — in emotional intelligence, mindfulness, spirituality, self-healing, energy medicine and self love — to help you love better how you think, feel, act, look and dream.
With experience mentoring athletes — both amateur and professional — athletes, I, together with my partner, Jeffrey Kippel, have consulted businesses on strategy, brand development and client engagement for over 20 years specifically in the fitness and wellness industries. This includes supplement lines to apparel, exercise innovations to fitness studios and gyms, event promoters to fitness & bodybuilding organizations, and CEOs of major corporations to owners of hotels and retreats.
I have also sat on the Advisory Boards for 2 major corporations during their launch phases.
Being a solutionary with claircognizance and clairvoyance helps me help clients shift their thinking so that problems seem to fix themselves. "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change." Facilitating this simple shift in perspective enables you to see your world through a new lens so that you can experience breakthroughs, make notable gains, and achieve your true potential.
This innovative bodywork therapy has been used for 43 years. It follows the notion that the psychological trumps the biological, and for that reason the body can heal itself.
Since all issues in the tissues are caused by emotional experiences that got locked in, the key to skyrocket results first requires healing of the mind, heart and spirit.
Couple that with hands-on work — more specifically, the elbow — to pull apart scar tissue, melt crystallization around joints and tendons, and return calcium to the bones from which it came, people are able to feel relief after just one session.
Athletes who tweak a muscle during training can have on the spot tune-ups to get right back in the game. Individuals scheduled for surgery of all types can actually tend to their body in a non-surgical way. Parents to be are taught techniques to help deliver children in a pain-free way in record time. Those with chronic pain discover that it no longer needs to be chronic. Lumps, bumps and surgery scar tissues remnants can all be resolved.
This method of bodywork originated from a medical intuitive who understood the human body from an energetic perspective. This makes it exciting, unique, and even controversial, lol. Yet, proof is in the results!
