You want a life without joint pain...
Courageous thinkers welcome
Why should you have to jump right to harmful drugs or worse, invasive strategies like injections or surgery to heal joint pain? We’re creating and embracing a way of life that’s pain-free the natural way. It’s never too late for the body to heal and recover.
You are strong and independent
We’re wizards at helping you become an expert about you. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to aging, so we’re here to help you really tune in to your body and learn how to mute your pain. After all, you value the body you were given like a treasure and care for it every day.
The future is pain-free
Age is not a number, it is a feeling. Life is not a series of years stacked up but a series of experiences that have brought fulfillment to your life. Growing older is an opportunity to feel more, to be more, to enjoy more.

Coach Todd Kuslikis, MMT, MPA
FOUnder & head coach
Coach Todd received his initial training in health at the Blue Heron Academy of Healing Arts and Sciences in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He advanced through their 600 and 1200 hour programs and started a successful medical manual therapy practice treating patients with a holistic approach including manual manipulation, exercise and stretching rehabilitation, nutrition, herbal medicine and acupuncture.
He went on to study Nursing at Western Michigan University and received his Masters degree in Public Administration with a focus on public health and non-profit management from Grand Valley State University. Todd’s passion for helping people led him to become the Closed Head & Spinal Cord Injury Program Director at Health Care Associates & Community Caregivers. During this time, the desire to reach a greater audience with the critical, preventive health information he learned led him to start A Shot of Adrenaline, one of the largest bodyweight exercise resources online and soon after, Feel Good Life, a resource helping people 50+ eliminate joint pain using natural techniques.
Fun Fact: Todd and his wife Allison now travel full time in a large 41ft 5th wheel RV with their 4 precious kids (age 7 and under). Allison shares more of their adventures on Instagram.
