We are FOR BHM, so we’re investing in leaders, so they can invest in leaders. Why? Because a good leader can inspire vision, instill confidence, and influence action. An investment in leaders is an investment in the community. 

You’re invited to join us on Monday, February 5, 2024. You’ll get to hear from two dynamic speakers, Forrest Walden and Jim Cavale.

Recognized by Entrepreneur, The Wall Street Journal and CRM Magazine, their model has captivated the business world with its uncompromising vision, operational excellence, lightning-fast growth and commitment to giving back. Both have continued to grow and lead in other areas and organizations, so they know what it takes to aim high while staying rooted.

Forrest WaldenCEO & Founder of Iron Tribe Fitness

Forrest is not just a successful CEO, he also likes to be known by the following achievements too: Podcast Host, Father, Husband, Christian, and Leader.

His fitness story began in college, as the smallest guy on the cheerleading squad at Auburn University. And that eventually led him to opening his first Iron Tribe gym in 2010.

Forrest is an inspiring speaker and focuses on the key areas of maintaining optimal physical health (BODY), how to draw closer to Jesus Christ (BEING), nurturing strong relationships with the most important people in your life (BALANCE), as well as growing and leading a successful BUSINESS.

He says, “God has endowed us all with unique abilities and talents. I’ve learned that life isn’t about what you have but what you’ve done with what you’ve been given. Using my talents I work each day to lead my own life and guide the life of others across four pillars: Body, Being, Balance, and Business.”

He and his wife have four children.


Jim CavaleCEO & Founder of Iron Tribe Fitness

Jim is the Founder and Chairman of Atheletes.org, 3x INC. 5000 Entrepreneur, INFLCR Founder (Acquired by Teamworks), Founding Board Member at Aspire Movement, Former President and Partner at Iron Tribe Fitness, just to name a few.

Jim defines his mission this way:  “Sport teaches the impact of intentional leadership, the fruit of adversity, and the beauty of human connection. An athlete’s peak performance is temporary, but the stage of sport provides the potential for athletes to make an eternal impact. My mission is simple — to provide athletes with the tools needed to use this stage to set the stage for the rest of their lives.”

He has a wealth of knowledge in all aspects of leadership, but also in building ventures, companies, teams, and making his dreams come true. With the success of his ventures, he was recently named to ESPN’s list of “The 11 biggest power brokers and advocates shaping the future of college football,” and in June 2022 was named to Sports Business Journal’s “Forty Under 40.”

He is also the proud co-founder of the GLOW, beauty-on-demand, app with his wife, Yazmin. Together they have three children, Savanah, Sofia and James.
