Ambrose Wilson Brown
Occupation: Health and fitness coach, MISPIBO (Mind Spirit Body) Fitness Age: 34
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.”
