A Special Message To My Mom and Moms Around the World

I have given a lot of thought on what to write to you on this special day. I really believe you should be celebrated 365 days a year, but I’m taking advantage of Mother’s Day to send a special message. For my mom: Besides giving me life a little over 30 years ago, Mom, you gave up your peaceful sleep for constant feedings, diaper changes, and constant projectile vomiting (so you have told me) … [Read more...]

Dear New Girl at the Gym…

"Why wouldn't someone feel comfortable coming to the Transformation Centers or invest in my DVDs?" One of my clients shared an article from a woman named Erica Millard. It is beautifully written and I think conveys what makes our Transformation Center and the community that we have created so unique. We don't judge, we encourage and accept. Same goes with our leaders that lead our community … [Read more...]

Was The Biggest Loser Winner TOO Thin?

Unless you tune out all media, it was hard to escape the buzz over this week's BL winner. Rachel, 5'5, went from 260 lbs to 105 lbs in the course of the 8 months. Was The Biggest Loser winner too thin? I am not here to judge if what she did was unhealthy or not. I have read reports that she ate 1,600 calories a day and worked out up to four times each day, but who knows... I wasn't with her 24/7 s … [Read more...]

Choosing a Fitness Program | One Of The Biggest Tips I Can Give You!

One of my small group clients made a comment to me that got me thinking. She saw another one of my clients (extremely hardcore and dedicated), getting pumped up for his next workout. She asked me, "When does this ever stop? Don't you get to a place where you are happy with your results and then just stop?" Unfortunately, some think that this whole eating healthy and exercising is a kick someone … [Read more...]

I Answer Your Questions…

I get asked almost daily to get interviewed for various magazines, blogs, newspapers, and podcasts. Most of the time I never mention them, but I wanted to give access to a podcast I recently did that I thought was exceptionally good. Not because I did anything great, but the dad who interviewed me was an incredible interviewer. I love to learn through listening. I try to listen to a … [Read more...]

The Dead Zone

A couple months ago I wrote an article that became quite popular talking about many of the different options we have when it comes to getting into shape. Click here to read the article I even lost a couple clients from it (which is just fine), when they realized that our program wasn't the program they needed given their experience and background.  This past week I have been going to a gym … [Read more...]

Why Women Should Weight Train

I receive quite a few emails from my subscribers asking fitness and nutrition questions.  One common question is related to women being afraid to resistance train because they believe they are going to bulk up! I think this stems from the periodic viral emails that go around showing women who look like men.  These bulky woman have been taking steroids!! One specific question I received was, "I h … [Read more...]

Don’t Try Any of My Fitness Programs Until You Read This… We Might Not Be Right For You

Don't Try Any of My Fitness Programs Until You Read This... We Might Not Be Right For You I am going to write this from the perspective of Madison, WI, but you could be reading this from most places in 1st world countries and it will apply to you as well. It is quite the paradox we are living in... we are sicker and unhealthier then ever before, yet have more amazing options to gyms, weight … [Read more...]

Kaitlin

I really like the story you are about to read about Fit Fun Bootcamper Kaitlin because it goes to show that despite growing up in a family of poor eating habits, it doesn't have to be a death sentence.  Change is possible and results will be achieved.  Losing the weight has not only transformed her body, but has given her extra drive and confidence to build her growing massage business. Here is h … [Read more...]
