JUSTIN

Founder

From a young age Justin Roethlingshoefer has always been self-motivated to improve, developing the discipline and work ethic necessary to excel. At 13 years old his father said “son, talent will get you noticed but consistency will get you paid” and that set up his quest of founding Own It.
 
Over the last 20+ years Justin has worked with Stanley Cup Champions, NHL MVPs, Super Bowl Champions, Olympians, 8, 9, and 10 figure entrepreneurs and fortune 500 companies. After completing his MS in Sport Performance and Human Biology, Justin sought out post graduate work in functional medicine. He has worked as a Performance Director in the NHL & NCAA, and founded a private camp for professional hockey players focusing on healing them from the inside out.  He is an Amazon best selling author for his books: Intent, Blueprint, and the Own It Manual. They focused on peak performance, human optimization, and applying data and testing to create personalized blueprints.

Justin’s knack for making the complex simple is among the best in the performance industry. Nobody takes the latest research on nutrition, training, and recovery, and packages it into digestible, systematic and applicable steps, particular within the Outer Energy team with Own It Coaching.

Outer Energy Coach

Brigitte Apostolakos’ professional career started in the corporate world as a modeling agent, but her lifelong passion for health and wellness took her down a different path. In 2004 she became a Registered Yoga Teacher. She built a successful yoga business but soon realized that movement was just one piece of the wellness puzzle. Her next venture was becoming a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach through FMCA and a board-certified NBC-HWC coach.
 
Her life abruptly changed in an instant in 2020 when her healthy, happy six-year-old unexpectedly suffered a brain aneurysm. Her little girl went through five brain surgeries and had a stroke. Every parent’s worst nightmare. Vacillating between wanting to die and needing to fight, Brigitte took a deep dive into her yoga background in breath work, meditation and energy work to help her get through and be the mom she needed to be. She is beyond grateful that her little girl is miraculously recovering and they have their lives back. Out of this trauma a beautiful seed was planted, a gift to learn about the autonomic nervous system and how to hack into it through breath work, meditation and tracking HRV.  Using these tools to help people increase their human potential, recover from trauma and stress, rewiring out of a chronic fight or flight state into a rest and repair state. She works with busy moms, athletes and business professionals helping them achieve transformational change through collaboration, information and data, identifying obstacles, inspiration and accountability. Brigitte will work with you where you are at and bridge the gap to where you were meant to be.

Now, Palveshey is on a mission to help others do what she has done:  Take their current pain, suffering, and limitation, and convert it into positive energy.  She believes that the most advanced technology in the world is the human body, and if it can be truly harnessed, a person can do anything that they set their sights on.
