People Still Care at Be Here Now

“No one cares how much you know until they know how much you care,” says Drew Acklin, owner, head coach and manager of Be Here Now, in Harrisburg. Knowing how deeply he cares about his clients’ lives makes them curious to know about his knowledge and philosophy.


Acklin’s sense of caring is obvious in the tone of his voice, choice of words, mannerisms and more importantly, in the life advice and instruction he offers clients. What he is most concerned about is resolving their chronic conditions by getting to the root cause of their symptoms of discomfort. That is why anyone that steps inside Be Here Now can expect their life to improve and change—not just their body.


Whether for strength training, weight loss, pain management or posture-related issues, Acklin’s four-step integrative holistic approach is what he learned from his mentor, world-renowned holistic health expert Paul Chek, owner of the Chek Institute, which teaches the science of living well. The comprehensive program includes corrective and high-performance exercise, kinesiology, stress management and holistic wellness, and has changed many lives.


“The 4 Doctors System we teach at Be Here Now includes Dr. Diet—a no-fad diet approach to flexible nutrition for life with lifestyle coaching; Dr. Quiet—meditation, reiki, stress management and sleep; Dr. Happy—designing goals and your dream life; and Dr. Movement—strength training, pain resolution, circuits and cardio,” says Acklin.


“Our coaches have each struggled with a traditional Western medical approach to most of the issues that our clients are dealing with. We all believe that people shouldn't have to rely solely on a medical model where doctors spend on average of six minutes with you and write a prescription before even asking about your sleep, diet, stress or exercise. Prescriptions are merely a linear approach to a harmonic system.


“We are not your ordinary gym with lots of distractions. Our clientele appreciates the peaceful environment, and that our coaches give them all the attention they need. We teach meditation here and help people uncover their limiting self-beliefs and negative self-talk; the stories that are not serving them,” advises Acklin. Be Here Now is a place of deep purpose, a lighthouse for those in need, a haven for truth-seekers, rule breakers and anyone in search of their dream.
