Fit Moms For Life team spent 4 days in NYC gathering with about 100 other mission driven non-profits and organizations. This conference was led by a brilliant thought leader named Jonathan Fields. Jonathan recently did a blog post that really hit me hard. Even though he wrote it for a largely artistic and entrepreneurial audience, I think it will also be a powerful read for those of you looking to … [Read more...]

This video really inspired and reminded me that age is mostly just a number and that no matter your age you can improve and transform.  Sonny was in his mid 40's before he ever picked up a weight and started working out.  Now it has become a core part of who he is and what he stands for. I want you to think about your life.  What is something you can start doing that you might have thought y … [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.

I want to give a big shout out to my dear mom who turns 65 today. When most meet her they think she is at least 10-15 years younger and her energy and spirit are even younger then that.
