What It Means To Be A Girl

When clients come to me and say, "I can only do girl push ups" it really bothers me. What is that even suppose to mean? I know they mean on their knee push-ups, but I ask them the question why do girls need to do push ups on their knees? The women I train can usually get off their knees and onto their toes. At Fit Moms For Life we are constantly asking ourselves what does it mean to … [Read more...]

Fed Up!

I hope you've had a great week and are enjoying the start of June! You may have heard of the documentary that recently played in theaters called Fed Up. In the past few weeks, 50 clients of my clients have gone to see this film. This was the best documentary I have ever seen on the obesity epidemic. Yes, even better then Food Inc. The main focus of the movie is the fact that sugar and processed … [Read more...]

A Tribute To Moms

In just about every speak I give I say that I believe moms are the most overworked and under-appreciated people in the world. This is one of the reason I am so passionate to help serve this deserving population.  The video you just watched does a great job at expressing how I feel and how every child feels towards their mom. Thank you for serving your families and mom thank you for all you … [Read more...]

The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Kids

As a mom you will do anything for your kids. You will stay up all night when they have a fever, you will take off work to get them to a doctor's appointment, and you will sacrifice your personal money and time so that they have everything they need and want. I just saw a study that said pregnant moms are 96% more likely to eat healthy. This is awesome since the newer research coming out shows … [Read more...]

What message are you sending?

Hi, This is Kim, one of Dustin's contributors. If you were to come to my home on any given day, you would find at least three current fitness magazines on my table.  You'd see that my basement looks more like a gym than a family room and you'd proabably hear my husband and I talking about the last article we read about nutrition and fitness.  You might also hear me complain that my weight was up t … [Read more...]

North Dakota Bootcamp

Hi.  This is Kim, one of Dustin's contributors. North Dakota winters never seem to end!    Just when we thought we were starting to melt some snow and see the grass again, we got hit with another winter storm that dumped about 8 inches of snow on us, closed all the highways and schools and kept us home for the day.  We made the best of it and made up our own family bootcamp. … [Read more...]

Green “Moothie”

This blog post is from one of my contributors Sara. Yes, that’s how my son says “smoothies.”  He begs for them!  Seriously, both you and your kids can benefit from a daily green smoothie. It's a great way to get veggies into a picky eater (adult or child!)  I got on the smoothie kick as part of a cleanse after attending a detox seminar at Red Mountain Spa (awesome place) and reading the book "Clea … [Read more...]

You are What You Eat: Part 1 of 2

Today I want to share a story of a mom named Kim and her 7 kids, yes I said 7!  I met her through my Fit Moms For Life DVD program and then went to ND and did a bootcamp out there for a bunch of her friends. She just launched her own FMFL community at a recent elementary school orientation and has 36 women who have committed to working out together each week and getting together intentionally to … [Read more...]
