Relationship Savvy Classes
We mostly have a relationship with ourselves with others in the room.
Good relationships must be built from the ground up. And on that ground floor is you. The reality is that we mostly have a relationship with ourselves while other people are in the room. What this means is that if our self-relationship is unhealthy, so will be all of our other-directed relationships because we cannot give to others what we do not possess for ourselves. When we are secure and comfortable with who we are, we are poised for high-quality and satisfying relationships.
With a healthy self-foundation in place, good relationships are built upon the ability to be flexible and to compromise in a way that meets the needs of all parties involved. For example, getting our way may make us temporarily happy, but if we are making our partner or family miserable, this happiness is fleeting at best. Learning how to remain open to new experiences, new perspectives and new ways of living and being are essential ingredients for healthy relationships.
Relationship Savvy Course Components
These classes focus on the keys to building good relationships, starting with the relationship you have with yourself. Classes can be purchased as content-only (Solo Class) or with added support (Class Plus option). Class Plus format offers the following benefits:
- A variety of 4-week classes.
- Downloadable learning aids for classes.
- Support forums for questions and peer support.
- Small-group instructional coaching to keep learning on track (3 coach-led, 1 peer-led)
- One private, 30-minute coaching session per month for individualized work.
- Weekly open office hours for course questions.
- Weekly mental fitness tips via mFIT blogs
- Monthly mPACT with mFIT Guides.
For those who want maximum support, we also offer one membership option (Fast Track).
NOTE: All classes are 4 weeks as they are designed to be completed during a 30-day period. There may be multiple class units on the same topic (e.g., Self-Esteem 101; Self-Esteem 102, etc.), which means classes must be taken in order as higher level courses build upon the previous ones.

Relationships should ADD to your life, not TAKE from it.
“It seems like I'd always move from one bad relationship to another. It's not that I wanted to be mistreated. I guess I'd just come to accept it. After taking several mental fitness classes and working with a coach, I realized that in a lot ways I was inviting the horrible relationships right to my front door. But not any more. I've sent a few bad boys packing and now have a good relationship with someone who respects me as much as I do him. What a relief to feel safe in being able to simply be who I am and not fear the consequences.”
