Produce industry professionals have just two chances to jump into the seven-week Mental Fitness Boot Camp before the end of the year. Leadership coach Wendy McManus is launching one group starting in mid-July and another in September. This is a small group program with just a few spots available for either start time.
Mental fitness is your ability to handle life’s challenges with a positive mindset. It sounds simple, but it’s not always easy to do. And research shows that it makes a difference in everything from your performance to your relationships to your overall sense of well-being. In fact, mental fitness is the best predictor of how happy you’ll be and how well you will perform, relative to your potential.
“I’ve had a front-row seat as I’ve shepherded more than 50 people on this journey,” said McManus. “The work is not always easy but the feedback from my clients about the program has been overwhelmingly positive.”

Mental Fitness Boot Camp is based on the neuroscience of change. Participants learn how to recognize and quiet the inner voices that hold them back and to amplify the voices that propel them toward their goals. This practice activates the parts of their brains that help them thrive so they can move toward their aspirations with resonance, rather than resistance. Boot campers learn strategies for how to manage their brain and build habits to help them use these skills in all areas of their lives.
“This program was life-changing and eye-opening for me,” said Brenda Briggs of Rice Fruit Company, a former camp participant. “It provides the tools to change how a person receives and reacts to information, emotions and people. The daily practice provides the positive feedback necessary to want to continue to change and learn. I absolutely recommend this program.”
The program works by incorporating daily app-guided exercises with weekly training videos and group coaching calls. Learning in a supportive community helps participants stay on track to get the most out of the journey. After seven weeks, participants will experience positive changes in how they think, feel and interact with others.
