Healthy Steps In The Right Direction

It's always so exciting to work with people who are motivated to make positive changes in their life!

Tassie and I have been training together to build a strong fitness foundation.  Our diverse one to one training sessions include various types of exercises with the TRX,  Buddy System, dumbbells, resistance bands, kettlebells and high intensity interval training - to name just a few! Keeping the workouts challenging and fun has helped us make some great  progress in all areas of fitness.  I'm especially happy to see strength gains in those modified pushups!  It's great to revisit an older workout after a few weeks to really recognize the improvements.  

The benefits of exercise keep this mom of two feeling strong and energized to tackle the demands of her busy life. In addition to the improvements in her fitness level Tassie decided to take it one step further and shed some weight.  Every day is different for this mom on the go so our whole approach to weight loss had to be practical. 

We set out a structured plan and after following through we've made some great progress.  Our plan consisted of 2-3 training session per week in addition to food changes. These changes were simple but effective; they included flexible meal guidelines, portion control, meal preparation and the practice of mindful eating.  Tassie shed 5 pounds in her first two weeks!  This is healthy progress for long term sustainable weight loss.  No crash diets!  Our check-ins and weekly goal setting has really helped keep things on track.

Congratulations Tassie, keep up the great work!
