When Am­brose Wil­son-Brown grad­u­ated from col­lege in 2005, he couldn’t find a de­cent job, so he was ei­ther un­em­ployed or worked odd jobs.

“I was frus­trated and de­pressed,” ad­mits the for­mer high school and col­lege ath­lete who lives in Walker’s Point. “I didn’t think to work out or eat healthy. I lost strength and speed.”

He loved coach­ing, though, and one day he re­al­ized he needed to set an ex­am­ple. “I de­cided to get fit for a pur­pose,” he re­calls. And he did. His daily rou­tine in­cludes yoga, breath­ing ex­er­cises, med­i­ta­tion and 75 to 90 min­utes of stretch­ing and ac­ti­va­tion ex­er­cises. He eats lean foods and en­joys power smooth­ies.

To­day, Wil­son-Brown is a holis­tic health coach with a va­ri­ety of clients, in­clud­ing some he works with re­motely. He also helps mid­dle and high school stu­dents in Mil­wau­kee Public Schools. “I want to spark their pur­pose,” he says, “so they can em­power oth­ers.”
