Join the 6 Week Challenge: “I’m entering the best decade of my life!”

I talk to men and women everyday who tell me they wished they lived near Madison so they could participate in our programs.

But you don't have to take my word for it, read Kris' story here: I've never been athletic. Phy Ed was the class … [Read more...]

The Best Diet Pill in the World!

Ahh diet pills... These two words get my blood boiling faster then any insult you can throw at me. Here is the question that frustrates and puzzles me...How can smart, well educated people continuously fall for the same scam over and over again packaged just a little differently each year? Chances are you have been or are currently on some sort of diet pill that the marketers promise will solve … [Read more...]

What motivates you? (special offer inside)

Eating healthy food is my second pillar of success and you won’t succeed in the long run without it. Click here for my ana … [Read more...]

Dying a slow death

The other day I shared with you some experiences from my time in Chicago with the Fit Moms For Life team learning about health and fitness from some of the top experts in the world. A couple of the presenters shared their belief that one-on-one personal training is dying a slow death. This is something I agree with and have seen happening for over 5 years now and in fact, as I trainer myself, I no … [Read more...]
