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. I wish everyone did but knowing that's not possible is what led me to create the 6 Week Challenge. I also get questions about whether it really works. It does! 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...]

Get Fit and Help Support My Little Brother Who Just Had a Stroke

Stroke 2

I want to first start by thanking each and every one of you who have shown incredible love and support to myself and my entire family over the past several days.  I feel so blessed and loved.  The Joy “Fit Moms” Maher Scholarship has raised over $9,000, which is just amazing along with the over 1,500 fb messages, emails, 150 plus cards, phone calls and texts that we've received.  Our family will … [Read more...]

Farewell to My Hero… My Mom

1 mom 3

I unexpectedly lost my hero today… My mom passed away peacefully in the arms of our family as we sang worship songs to usher her into her eternal place in Heaven. 21 hours earlier, she suffered a massive stroke in her brain and the doctors did all they could to keep her on life support until we could all get there to see her. If I could sum up her life it was: love Jesus love … [Read more...]

Do this 1 thing if you want to keep losing weight!

Do your clothes and the scale seem to be on a perpetual yo-yo?  Consistency exercising and eating healthy is tough. For the month of July, I am committing to sharing a 1-2 minute video with you.  It might be an observation I made that day or a conversation I had, but each will end with a short question. Today, I am focusing on how we can stay consistent with our workouts. Since about 95% of … [Read more...]

How to reduce/eliminate joint pain and grow strong hair and nails!


I have received a few emails asking about how I learned about Hydrolyzed Collagen in the first place and what is the quality of the Fit Moms Hydrolyzed Collagen, specifically. Six years ago, when Tracie Fountain, our incredible nutritional counselor, mentioned “hydrolyzed gelatin (or collagen) I said, “SAY WHAT?” I had never heard of it before, let alone know what it actually did. But Tracie is … [Read more...]

[Recipe] Healthy Energy Protein Snack Balls!


“My joints are sore again Dustin,” one of my newer clients recently told me. I asked her why. “Because I went on a week's vacation and I didn’t bring the Fit Moms Hydrolyzed Collagen with me.” I don’t blame her for not bringing it through TSA security; it is a white powdery substance so maybe it looks very similar to cocaine, not that I really know what cocaine looks like in real life. Today, I … [Read more...]

This Short Video Made Me Smile and Cry at the Same Time

I recently attended the Functional Aging Summit in Phoenix Arizona.  Nearly 200 of the top professionals from around the world gathered to discuss training, nutrition, and psychology around helping transform the quality of life for baby boomers and beyond. One of the presenters shared a very short video that had me smiling and crying at the same time; I am not sure if I have ever experienced … [Read more...]

This made me really sad…


I had an exciting and sad experience.   Let me explain…   I love playing frisbee golf.  It is like golf but you use special discs and throw into chain baskets.  I have been playing for about 5 years and have my entire family hooked on this sport. I try to play 3-5 times each week. A few years ago, I got my first “ACE”, a hole in one. Last week,  I made #2. I couldn’t find anyone to go with so I … [Read more...]

Lessons Learned from Fitness Workshop (controversial)

Last weekend, I took several of my trainers to Milwaukee for a fitness conference focused on transforming those from age 55-95 years old. Our instructor was a fitness expert out of Florida, go figure, and we learned so much when it comes to helping people age as awesome as possible. You might not be 55 or older yet, but chances are you have family members who are, and if we are blessed, we all … [Read more...]

I was wrong.


This weekend, I am headed to Phoenix, AZ for the Function Aging Institute.  A fitness conference bringing the brightest minds in the world together who look to serve those 55 years old and above. It happens to land on my birthday (June 13th), but spending my birthday learning practical ways to help you improve the quality of your life is a pretty awesome way to spend a birthday if you ask me. I … [Read more...]
