Being an ex Police Officer I know the importance of working together and using your expertise. This is why we give all proceeds of every trip to a Police or Frontline focused non profit.
Chris hand picks the nonprofit based on their story, their impact and mission.
This retreat will be donated to the GRIFFITH BLUE HEART NONPROFIT. Chris interviewed Brandon Griffith the founder on his Fight the Burnout Podcast earlier this year and similar to Chris' story a great cause was born from a tragic event.

Chris is an American-Kiwi, born in Redding, California and arrived in NZ in 2004. He joined the NZ Police in 2011 and after a seven-year career, during which time he protected The Rt Hon Sir John Key (New Zealand's Prime Minister), he experienced severe burnout and PTSD that caused him to leave the job he once loved.
His passion for motorcycles has always been there, commuting to work, riding dirt bikes and riding the weekends. It really evolved however, when he used it as therapy to reconnect with himself. The Lean Into It Experience is a portion of the ride Chris did when he lived off the back of his bike, during a three month ride around the USA to recover from PTSD and burnout.
After this trip and journey of self-care, recovery and personal development, Chris is now hyper passionate about helping officers and first responders take charge of their mental health and significantly reduce their chance of burnout. He lives to ensure others learn to see themselves, so they don't go through the pain he once experienced.
I’m happy to announce that my uncle Kyle Chandler, actor,(Friday Night Lights, Wolf of Wall Street, Bloodline,King Kong etc. ) former volunteer firefighter and avid motorcycle rider, is planning to join us if not filming at time of the ride.
When I first told him what and why I was running this retreat the Lean Into It Experience; to help First Responders take charge of their mental health through this motorcycle ride, he quickly said "I'm in".
This is a once in a life time opportunity to spend quality time with someone you may look up to from the big screen.
Last time I rode with him, he planted words of wisdom I still use today.

Excited about the idea, but still not sure if traveling and growing with complete strangers is for you? That's fair.
That's why we created an intro video through the link below. It'll let you know a bit more about who we are and what we stand for, so you can determine if Lean Into It is your thing. From there, you'll book a one-on-one call with Chris , giving us the chance to ensure you're a good fit for the trip and finalise any details.
But hey, before you take your time watching a video, here are some commonly asked questions:
Nope, we never ask you to bring your own bike. Instead, we rent. You're more than welcome to request to bring your own bike, but this will need to be discussed on our one-on-one call.
Chris and his wife Kristyn, organize EVERY last detail of the trip - from renting bikes, food, the route, gas and accommodation - we take care of it all so you can relax.
All you have to do is show up and have fun!
The cost of the trip is $6250 depending on when you enrol. Keep in mind, the cost covers EVERYTHING when you're there; some might even call it "all-inclusive."
Bike rental, fuel, all meals, the first round of drinks, tips, accommodation, any park/exhibit entry fees and all the learnings from Chris' world class program to prevent burnout ever happening in your life again.
Once you're there, you shouldn't have to take your wallet for anything.
The only thing this doesn't include will be the cost of flights (and anything drinks past the first round).
We can also offer customised payment plans to help you out.
6 nights and 7 days.
We ask everyone to be in Pheonix by lunchtime on 20 May. We begin riding on 21 May and will be back in Sedona by approximately 1pm on 26 May. If you need some ideas of things to do before or after the retreat - we can help with that too!
This retreat is for intermediate riders only. This means you have been regularly riding for at least two (2) years and have done at least a 250 mile day before.
We'll be covering a substantial distance each day and riding all back roads, which will push you and your experience. The last thing we want to see is someone get hurt. This is why we have a call before you join us on this amazing experience.
When Chris decided to put this together he wanted two things. A great experience and to teach others what he learned from his trip when he was completely checked out and empty on life. He doesn't want to see you get to the same point that he did, where he burnt his life down.
Over the six days and seven nights, he'll teach you life changing tools and actions to take before, during and after the ride. This will give you a routine and process to use in your everyday life, to break through PTSD and prevent you from falling into a state of burnout.
This all occurs while we ride the iron horses through some amazing roads and scenery, with amazing people, doing what we love.
If you're reading this far down on the page, I think it's safe to say there is something here for you. But the best thing you can do is watch the video on the next page, and book a one-on-one call with our team. There are only 10 spots available so don't hesitate.
We get that.
And to be honest, if you only get two weeks a year for a holiday, it should be spent with your family. But what we can say is the Lean Into It Experience can really "fill your cup". Most come back from these trips a happier, healthier version of themselves. It's crazy what a healthy adventure can do for you. Surely your partner wants that for you?
Remembering this isn't just another "motorcycle tour". This is a growth experience to recharge and really learn who you are as a person, beyond all the noise we have in life. You'll be learning everything Chris had to learn the hard way. And we can speak to your partner too, if you need us to!
