Diets don’t work.

I say this often because I know from experience. It started with watching my mother trying to lose weight by eating Figurines or following the T-Factor diet. It became my own story in my late teens and early 20s as I religiously avoided foods with fat and sweated it out with my Susan Powter aerobics video. When that didn’t work, I would starve myself during the day only to buckle at night when I was tired, lonely and depressed.

Now I see the proof in clients who come to me feeling hopeless because they have tried everything. They have starved and punished their bodies with all the popular diets only to feel as though they are in the worst shape of their lives. They lose weight, temporarily, but they can’t sustain it. The come to me hopeless and feeling like failures.

They have not failed. The diets have failed them. Diets are by design temporary. That “jump start” program to help you lose 10 lbs in 10 days is not meant to help you keep those 10 lbs off. The 30 days of giving up almost EVERY food you love is only a month for a reason. You can give up bread and bananas as long as there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Where is the exercise?

Most commercial weight loss programs encourage some form of exercise but fail to give you a plan on exactly what to do. Most people will default to cardio because it’s familiar. We all know how to walk, right? Riding a bike is as easy as well…riding a bike. The problem is cardio won’t help you build a healthy metabolism and the shape you want.

Luckily, I figured this fallacy out when I was in my mid twenties. I learned how to give my body the fuel it needed. I harnessed the power of strength training. Most importantly, I learned that real fitness was not about dieting. It is about learning to live a new way, every day, for the rest of my life.

My 4 Keys to Real Fitness is not a diet. It’s a road map.

If you can master the basics you will have a solid foundation for a journey meant to last a lifetime. I hope you have taken advantage of my book that outlines these principles, the same ones I use with all my clients. If you have read The 4 Keys to Real Fitness I suspect you have questions. How would you like a chance to ask them – in person? How would you like a chance to participate in workshops that cover each of the 4 Keys in depth with bonus tools to help make them real in YOUR life?

  • Learn how to do foundational strength exercises safely with modifications for your fitness level.
  • Discover the most effective kind of cardio for your needs.
  • Understand what foods help you balance protein, fats and carbs on your plate.
  • Get recipes for balanced breakfasts, lunches, dinners and smoothies.

I understand if perhaps you still haven’t applied these principles. I know that while the formula seems simple the application is never easy. Change is hard. Overcoming a lifetime of habits is like a rocket trying to break free from gravity. Think about how much effort that takes! It’s even harder when those around you aren’t willing to make changes too. Clients come to me as much for support and accountability as they do for the workouts. They come to me to help them figure out strategies for behavior change. They want to be around others who have done it, who are living a life of real fitness. They need to be around others who GET IT.

  • Wouldn’t it be nice to be part of a group of like-minded women, all trying to get healthy and fit?
  • Wouldn’t it be great to have a coach to lean on anytime you felt like giving up? To email with exercise questions or a confusing food label?
  • Wouldn’t it be amazing to have someone who is going to tell you the truth when you need to hear it?

I wish I had I had all of those things when I started my journey.

Part of why I started Thrive Personal Fitness was to help other women learn about living healthy and not make some of the same mistakes I did in the beginning. I do that with my personal training clients every day but I also realize that personal training sessions aren’t the right fit for everyone.

Maybe it’s a work or childcare schedule that means workouts happen at odd hours, whenever you can fit them in. Or perhaps you’ve got a consistent exercise habit but you feel something is missing and preventing you from reaching your goals. You might have exercise down but need extra help with nutrition. Maybe what you’re doing isn’t working and you want to get more information about how to get off the diet roller coaster and start living a healthy and fit life.

I am proud to introduce the 4 Keys to Real Fitness Coaching Club.

I am so excited to be rolling this program out to the Springfield area in January 2015! I also want to give you plenty of time to ask questions, think it over and be ready to COMMIT when registration opens on December 29. Spaces will be limited and registration will only be open until 5 pm January 2 (unless spots are filled before then). Before registration you can email me with questions. Be sure to sign up to for my mailing list to receive a reminder on December 29 when registration opens.

If you are looking for a way to lose 20 lbs before Valentine’s Day or your class reunion, this is not the program for you. If you want fast weight loss with no effort, don’t even bother with me. If you need a quick fix or jump start I encourage you to look elsewhere.

If you are looking for a lifestyle change, get ready. If you want help forming healthy habits to last a lifetime, I have your answer. If you want to build a foundation for real fitness then the 4 Keys to Real Fitness Coaching Club is for you.
