Creatively Fit Coaching Training
The Creatively Fit Coaching Training is radically transformed to serve you better...
In 1996, with zero art training--I had not even painted on a canvas or taken an art class since I was 15-- I was deeply called to create a safe & inspiring space where people could come to learn how to create at the canvas so that what they learned in art class would inspire & empower the art that is their life.
I was 26 years old and committed to creating my own magical life. After graduating from the University of Michigan and going off to sell books door-to-door for the next 4 summers, I was VERY clear that life was MUCH more like a blank canvas than a multiple choice test!
I had been given the understanding in a moment of clarity, a classic ah-ha or lightbulb moment, that we are meant to live our lives as art. So, with money I made selling books door-to-door in Walla Walla, WA during the summer of 1995, I bought a run-down, crack house in an up and coming commercial neighborhood in Nashville, TN. After months of knuckle-swelling renovations, on May 1st, 1996 (24 years ago!), I opened The Creative Fitness Center.
Fast forward… what we are experiencing today in this world is a result of forgetting the truth of our roles as Life Artists. We were conditioned to work, to achieve, to live up to others expectations, to fill roles that others deemed “appropriate,” and to expect life to be a battle, a struggle...and what the world needs now is to get Creatively Fit.
We are now remembering that we are ALL artists and that the art we are creating in each and every moment is our life and we are either doing it with or without awareness.
What we are experiencing right now is the result of the masses living and creating reality without awareness.
It will now take the masses to remember how to create life WITH awareness.
This is why, since 2010, I have been training individuals, other optimistic, idealistic, and action-oriented healer / teacher souls like me, who understand or feel, or who just know somehow inexplicably, that art making and life making and happiness and personal fulfillment can be seeded, expanded, and ultimately created into our life experience starting at the canvas.
It is SO MUCH MORE FUN to be a part of a movement, to create change together, in community, cheering each other on while celebrating our “wild & crazy” ideas! We are a tribe and we are opening up the training to dramatically expand our creative reach.
This could be exactly what you have been looking for!
If you are interested in learning how to develop (or expanding) your own Sacred Personal Painting Practice that will empower and inspire you as a Life Artist and, then, in learning how to turn around and share this with others, making extra income along the way, then I have an invitation for you.
I have answered the call to called to radically transform this training to make it more accessible to more people because right now what we need spreading more than this virus is creative inspiration, creative courage and the knowing that we are infinitely creative beings and that we can learn to focus our attention, our imaginations, our thoughts, our words, our conversations, and our dreams on what we want--a new eARTh that is sustainable, compassionate and that will create our collective happiness and wellness at a level never before experienced.
SO...starting May 1st a new group of Creatively Fit Coaches will begin this training in a way that is super targeted to help you to inspire our world, to make money doing what you love, to serve and heal the world from our creative wounds.
I invite you to CLICK HERE to learn more, to see how this newly transformed structure, that includes a team of Creatively Fit Coaches who will be your guides, along with myself, fits into your vision for the art that is your life.
Transformational times call for transformation on all levels. Join me to be a part of the POSITIVE ripple effect of this global pandemic. Together we will step out even more courageously to share our heARTs and empower others to create change!

HOW IS THE TRAINING ORGANIZED?
First we start with Vision Quest where we journey through the four elements as they relate to the Creatively Fit Personal Painting Practice
AIR is where we explore the mental realm, old stories around creativity, the distinct personalities of the left and right hemispheres of our brain, and how as a Life Artist you can create NEW empowering beliefs by sending your thoughts towards that which you desire.
In FIRE you learn how to teach ANYONE how to start a Personal Painting Practice using my Painting Made Easy Process. Anyone who wants change in their life will need to ignite the spark that is their creative nature. Let’s fan the flame, shall we?
In WATER we dive underneath the surface into the unconscious and explore the language of sacred symbols, increase your intuition and learn the powerful lesson of detachment by painting symbols over and over the same canvas!
Then, in EARTH, you experience a 13-Prompt Magical Manifestation Painting in which you “plant the seeds” that you want to grow into the art that is your life. There are workshop outlines and specifics about how to use Vision Quest as a coaching process. You can use each element, AIR, FIRE...as a separate workshop or coaching module. You can also create your own workshops and coaching processes inspired by what you learn. There is as much or as little structure as you like!
I also share this info in this video....
6 weeks: June 19th to July 31st and 3 Group Calls led by CCFC Guides
After GROUNDING our new creative practice in Mother eARTh, we CHARGE by expanding up and into the infinite nature of who you are as a creative being. In Level II you experience Super Soul Flow, where painting and meditation dance to elevate your spiritual journey to new levels of creative confidence.
In each of the 8 lessons, you experience guided meditations and there is an extensive workbook that you use alongside the content (and in the future with your clients) to explore new and expansive creative principles.
You paint on a large canvas, adding to it after each meditation and finally painting your WINGS.

Some other FAQ's

There are 15 to 20 people in each training group. Whitney Freya is VERY high-touch and the connection amongst the group is tremendous. Just watch any of the testimonial videos on THIS PAGE to see how lit up CCFC are about the tribe!
IS THERE A MARKET IF WHITNEY IS ALREADY TEACHING THIS CONTENT?
Think of how many life coaches there are in the world and how many different varieties of coaching there are.
Creatively Fit Coaches bring to their businesses and clients their own background and experience.
- Some have worked in corporate and are passionate about how their left brains LOVED getting Creatively Fit.
- Some CCFC are yoginis and bring the creative practice into their yoga practices and their yoga students into their Creatively Fit Programs.
- Some coaches are passionate about helping their clients through fear, while others emphasize increasing your intuition.
- YOU will attract clients unique to YOU because your story and your experience up until now will resonate with others and your story is different from Whitney’s or Angela’s or the other CCFC.
You receive a lot of coaching around how to take your experience up until now and allow it to be expanded by what you learn in this training.
This Creatively Fit Coach Training Program is specifically designed for those who KNOW they want to use PAINTING, ART, IMAGINATION and MEDITATION to heal, to serve your clients, and to grow your business. OR you know you want to work with Whitney Freya in her inner circle, what you "do" with the certification upon completion is part of the mystery that you trust will reveal itself.

"This coaching program has so much to offer. I found my thinking and creative processes were challenged and expanded in a wonderful way. The activities are simple yet very powerful. While I started out doing this course because I was very excited about the possibilities of adding this style of coaching to my services, Life threw in other big things to deal with. My mum was very ill and passed away during this period and I used a number of the exercises to help ground and centre myself when I was very emotional and distraught. I would recommend the course to others who feel strongly that the art process is SO MUCH MORE than about making art products but an opportunity to tap our creative spirits. Whitney is a wonderful, positive, generous guide through this learning. Take the leap – you won’t regret it!"
- Michelle Walker, Art of Abundance
"Whitney’s Creatively Fit Coach Training program changed the way I teach art.
I have always known art has the power to transform, uplift and touch my own spirit, but struggled with how to share that with others. The tools Whitney’s course provided are the divining rod I can place into the hands of my students – allowing them to discover the deep well of their own creativity."
- Christine Pensa, Art That Moves
