Madison Weight Loss Fitness Program

This past weekend Fit Fun Bootcamps kicked off the indoor season in a big way with 97 adults and 25 kids participating in the workout.  It was great to see so many people and families coming together to invest in themselves, get a great workout in, and have lots of FUN in the process! I wanted to thank 8 of my trainers for being there to help out with it!  Thank you: Ryan, Marsue, Deb, Abby, K … [Read more...]

2009 Ford Ironman Championships Madison Wisconsin

This past Sunday was one of my favorite days of the year.  My home town of Madison, WI is host to one of the IronMan races.  Some people think that I am a triathlon and ironman hater because I don't think it is the best way to lose fat.  I did get a few emails from people amazed at some of the larger athletes, but at the same time, we don't know their whole story.  Two of the largest people I saw c … [Read more...]

Is 50 The New 30?

Looking younger is a multi billion dollar business, from botox, to implants, to body lifts, to skin creams.  It seems the world just doesn't want to look or feel old. While all of the above techniques can help, I have one that works far better than all of those!  Live a life of healthy eating and consistent exercise!  One of my heroes and mentors Jack LaLanne is living proof that age is just a nu … [Read more...]

MamaTone and Fit Fun Bootcamps Was Kris’s Weight Loss Solution

Today, I am excited to share with you Kris' story.  Kris came to me quite overweight and frustrated with decades worth of weight battles.  It certainly wasn't for lack of effort, Kris had tried exercise in the past and had many attempts at dieting. In this last year, her troubles in the past turned to triumph and her body began to change... Warning personal story about to begin: I don't have the … [Read more...]

Golf Conditioning: How To Hit The Golf Ball Further With Charlie Shortino of NBC

Today I had a fun time with Charlie Shortino on the NBC morning show.  Sarah Carlson was off on vacation this week.  I wanted to hit on a little more manly topic and decided to talk about golf... Ladies I know many of you also play golf! I am amazed at how many golfers buy super expensive clubs to give them an extra 5 yards, when all they really need is to improve their flexibility, increase p … [Read more...]

How Fit Fun Bootcamps Changed Patty’s Life!

Today I am very excited and proud to share with you a story about another great transformation I have been able to witness.  Her name is Patty, and she has been coming to Madison Fit Fun Bootcamps since I created it in May, 2008.  When I first met Patty she was in pretty poor shape and struggled to complete the workouts.  Fast forward a little over a year later and 40 lbs lighter, Patty can be se … [Read more...]

A Kick In The Butt

We had an awesome workout this morning at Fit Fun Bootcamp!  It is such a great way to start the day out.  As I was talking with some of the bootcampers this morning they said that this was just what they needed after a weekend full of eating, drinking, and celebrating.  (I find it interesting, that food and alcohol always seems to be necessary for a celebration) If you did eat poorly this we … [Read more...]

What Are You Investing In

I have been flying quite a bit the past couple years and have met so many interesting people on my flights.  Most ask what I do, and when I tell them I am a body transformation specialist, the fun begins.  If I am sitting next to someone who obviously could use my services I usually get what I call "confessional time" by the person.  You would think I was a priest and they were sharing all of th … [Read more...]

Tracy Looks and Feels Better Today Than In College 22 Years Ago!

As I have become a more experienced trainer through the years, I have gotten to work with more and more people and, as a result, some of my preconceived notions of the body, aging, and fitness levels have changed.  No longer do I believe that when a person turns 40, their fitness levels drop off, no longer do I believe that someone in their 50's and 60's can't feel better than when they were in … [Read more...]

Interval Training: The 21st Century Fat Loss Solution

If you have been following me for any length of time or have trained with me, you know the first thing I do with a client who sees me for fat loss and has been a chronic long distance cardio person, is tell them to stop immediately! For many looking to lose weight long slow intensity cardio just doesn't seem to work.  I don't have all the answers to why, but just look around at everyone in the … [Read more...]
