Let Me Be Vulnerable and Share With You A Secret…

Being a fitness professional is hard... It is hard to live up to the standards and "perfect" lifestyle that our clients believe we have. Believe it or not, most fitness professionals struggle with body image, weight maintenance, motivation, etc., just like you. I really struggled with this earlier on in my career. I would make sure none of my clients were around at the grocery store if I bought … [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.

Are You Proud of 2013?

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?

She was only 20 years old and we continue to send prayers and thoughts to their family and friends.  We all have stories on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis that remind us that life here on earth is precious and short. It reminds us that we should spend each day l … [Read more...]

It is OK To Be Scared…

I can't tell you how many times I hear, "Dustin, I really want to get in shape and feel better,  I'd like to join one of your programs but I am scared I will (fill in the blank)."  The most common answer is, I am scared I will fail or I will give up. Doing something different or uncomfortable is scary, stressful, and nerve-racking, but the alternative to that comfortable, boring, stagnant, isn't pl … [Read more...]

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...]
