What is Behavioral Fitness™?

Behavioral Fitness™ is mental health in action (MHIA).

Behavioral Fitness™ is practiced in the form of recreation, exploration, connection, reflection, behavioral health education, coaching, and more. Most of all, it’s fun, invigorating, action-oriented, and grounded in science. Be prepared for a shift. Behavioral Fitness™ has been found to transform your life, resulting in new foundations of insight that lead to personal growth.

Becoming Behaviorally Fit may start with you but it has a ripple effect for those around you.

“I had a palpable shift. It helped me to believe that life was happening for me, not to me. It was even more illuminating when people commented on how much they enjoyed being around me. The effect was contagious. I highly recommend Behavioral Fitness.”

We envision a time when all people believe that mental health resources are in abundance all around us.  Behavioral Fitness™ is mental health in action and we all have access.

Once in a while we get shown the light in the strangest of places when you look at it right.

Who is behind Behavioral Fitness?

Behavioral Fitness™ was founded by Dr. Allyson Mayo, a Doctor of Behavioral Health, and an industry expert educating on how to prescribe “Lifestyle Medicine” for the root causes of maladaptive behaviors. Through her revolutionary approach to Behavioral Fitness™, she carves out a much-needed new path to exceptional mental health. A professor at the University of San Francisco and an industry innovator, she is committed to seeing that our communities become behaviorally fit.

Elements of Behavioral Fitness™ Programs

1:1 Access to a BFF

Once you join our program, you will be connected with a Behavioral Fitness™ Facilitator (BFF) who will be available for one-to-one support. Your BFF is a specially trained individual committed to supporting you to get from point A to point B- or simply to “just be” more behaviorally fit- whatever that looks like for you. Communicate with your BFF  via text, phone, video, or in-person—you choose what works best for you!
