“Sierra has seemingly interminable knowledge about how to help women ‘be women.’ She herself is challenging, compassionate and radiantly confident, a model of how to balance the warrior and goddess energies women have.”
— Sharon M. Melnick, Ph.D., Harvard Medical School, Executive Coach for Women

Pain into Power

As a semi-professional athlete, a model, prosperous fitness and health business owner and perfect marriage living in New Jersey, it would seem as though Sierra had it all. However, on Christmas Eve 1995, at the age of 32, Sierra underwent a near-death experience as the result of an undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy that led to a ruptured uterus. After being pronounced dead, modern medicine saved her life, but did not heal her. Sierra then set out on an inner vision quest and an outdoor adventure across the globe.

The Journey

The journey of being the force of nature that Sierra is today, reads like an odyssey. The search for her own healing, empowerment and redefining success led her to Native American reservations, an ashram in India, the Dalai Lama’s home, a jail cell in South Carolina, and a hut in the Amazon. Along the way, Sierra absorbed the collective teachings of the world’s sages and leaders. Sierra had absorbed not just the collective teachings of the world’s sages and leaders but had also tapped into her female essence, her inner Woman Warrior –an innate and powerful entity directly at odds with the popular notion that success for a woman means walking in a man’s shoes.

Possess the Possible!

Although Sierra could not give birth to children she turned her “Pain into Power”, surrendered what was no longer of service to her, channeled her intuitive motherly energy, and gave herself permission to SHINE. This act of self-love gave birth to top-selling programs, a best-selling book, and a clinically proven method that has helped millions awaken and pull forth their inner light to shine with her. Through this rites of passage, she has been lead to her highest purpose and passion: The 4 Body Fit™ Institute AKA “The Mother Ship”, where she again lifted to Possess the Possible. You too can Possess the Possible! LEARN MORE 

By harnessing the power of their inner Woman Warrior, Sierra helps women face their fears, question the unknown, surrender to what no longer serves them and give themselves permission to be free. By doing these acts of self-love, they draw money, health, wealth, success and beauty to them.

The Aim

The aim of Sierra’s work is to empower women to claim their space in the world, face their fears, awaken their female spirit, and take control of their destiny without sacrificing their femininity or being an imitation man. Sierra has pulled forth the Woman Warrior in myth, legend, and lore to teach women what has been taken away and what they have forgotten. She teaches the matriarchal ways of leading, healing, spiritual practices, and creating community or tribe, and brings the Woman Warrior to life in the 21st century. LEARN MORE

The Tribe

Sierra  has built and continues to build a tribe of Woman Warriors  throughout the world to provide this backbone of support and love so that every woman can receive this knowledge to manifest what they desire, require, and deserve. JOIN THE TRIBE

Her Path & Purpose

Her community activities, both socially and politically, have brought awareness to women’s issues worldwide. As a passionate advocate for the equality of women and girls, Sierra has devoted the last 30 years of her life to combating sexual abuse, trauma, stress, and disempowerment. As a result of a tumultuous personal journey of sexual abuse as a child, sexual harassment and assault. She realized there was little help or direction for women like herself, so she created a path.

The Woman Warrior Path

The path she created is called the 4 Body Fit™ Sierra Bender Empowerment Method. It has helped millions of women and girls restore the shattered pieces of their mind, body and spirit. To reclaim their femininity, innocence and body. And most importantly their voice as women. Divine and assertive. The 4 Body Fit™ Sierra Bender Empowerment Method gives females the power to claim their space in the world to “Live Empowered and Possess the Possible!” LEARN MORE

Sierra Bender can only be described as a force of nature, an inspired teacher.”
Wade Davis, National Geographic, best-selling author of The Serpent and the Rainbow

“Empowerment is not just the development of learning
new skills and thinking, it’s embodying them.”
