"I’ve witnessed millions of people polarized by the misnomer that success is siloed in physical excellence or mental emotional superiority. To shift the social norm, we have to shift the influencers and their messaging. Underlying the GAME is Life Map Technologies, a proprietary method, to help people gain awareness in all areas of their life, and, therefore make advances"

Meet the Founders

Mindy Blackstien & Jeffrey Kippel 

Jeff & Mindy helped pioneer the fitness industry. With a team, and in alignment with other organizations -- INBA, Musclemania, Fitness Canada Pageant, Neutron, Ms Fitness, Fitness STAR & UFE  -- they helped shape its culture, influence its direction and enable global growth.

Mindy & Jeffrey

They founded World Natural Sports Org. (WNSO) & FAME World Tour to provide platforms, pathways & incentives for anyone (any age, ability & start point) to transform. They had TV shows in 4 continents, incl. a TSN #1 hit. Their magazines had worldwide distribution; their annual expo became a fly-in event for models & athletes; and they spoke on stage / in media on transformation, entrepreneurship & personal growth.

Mindy's "why"

"Rather than celebrating their gains & triumphs, many athletes and models who didn’t win felt body-shamed... by their OWN thoughts! That's opposite what the stage was intended to be about! It was disheartening for me to feel their sadness and watch smiles drop. I came to realize that beyond the need to transform one's outer self is the need to transform one's inner self. Since then, ‘07, we’ve been developing this to course correct."

Screen Shot 2019-08-24 at 9.26.47 AM.png

Jeffrey's "why"

"Back in the day I needed to make a change. I turned to the gym and suddenly felt a calling to do something profound in the world of bodybuilding. Despite building a world tour of events and a conglomeration of entities to serve the industry, that wasn’t it. Fast forward to today, and I realize that what I want to do is bring mental health back to fitness so everyone, whether you love how you look or not, can love who they are."
