"What is easy to do is also easy not to do." To do or not to do is the question? Every day I make the choice to press play and complete my workout. I feel full of energy and a sense of accomplishment when my workout is done for the day. I am excited to be on this journey of fitness and hope to bring you along with me. I look forward to seeing all of your fitness, wellness, and life dreams come true. Join me in the journey!
I have always had an interest in my fitness, and have been going to the gym for many years either to walk or to take a class. The gym that we were members at was about 35 minutes from home so we would only go 1-2 times per week. I knew I should be working out more consistently than that so I began using Beachbody products to have daily workouts. There were so many to choose from and something was always coming out that I enjoyed...10 Minute Trainer, Hip Hop Abs, Brazil Butt Lift, Body Beast, T25, to 21 Day Fix. Each program proved to be challenging for me and allowed me to see results. The key to getting results was ME! I knew that I had to be consistent every day. I was tired of having a muffin top from my three c-sections. My daughter used to ask me why my stomach looked "that way"... the roll at the top of my scar. "Silly girl, it is because of you!" Well, enough was enough, I decided that I was going to work hard to get rid of my tummy. My results are below so you can see that our programs work if you work them...
You can achieve your goals as well. If you are needing to lose weight or just want to tighten and tone, our programs will work for you. We have challenge groups in place to assist you with your fitness & wellness goals. If you are not sure what challenge groups are or how they work, that is ok. ......

Peanut Butter Fudgy Pops
Some things were just meant to go together: strawberries and cream, oatmeal and raisins, peanut butter and chocolate. Our Peanut Butter Fudgy Pops blend the latter two made-in-heaven flavors into ice-cold pops that taste like a peanut butter cup on a stick — without the truckload of fat and sugar to weigh you down.
Most better-for-you popsicles are usually fruit-based, but these offer something a little creamier. Blend and freeze just three ingredients — Chocolate Shakeology, peanut butter, and milk — and you’ll be enjoying a satisfying, healthy treat that also has 9 grams of protein. (Not a fan of chocolate? Then check out our avocado and banana popsicles).
Peanut butter may sound like an indulgence, but it can be part of a healthy diet — in moderation, of course. Peanuts pack a lot into a little package: They contain fiber, protein, key vitamins and minerals like potassium and vitamin E, and monounsaturated fats.
If you’re feeling a little ambitious, consider making your own. All you need are peanuts and a food processor and you can make homemade peanut butter in five minutes flat. If you don’t own a food processor or don’t want to mess with kitchen appliances, just make sure to use natural peanut butter. Check the label: The only ingredients listed should be peanuts and salt.
