"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. ......

We created a healthier version of the favorite party dip. Usually made from a powder of artificial flavors, our French onion dip is made from scratch with savory caramelized onions.

Prep Time: 10 min.
Cooking Time: 25 min.
Yield: 7 servings, about 3 Tbsp. each
1 Tbsp. olive oil
2 medium onions, chopped
¼ cup low-sodium organic beef broth
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
¼ tsp. garlic powder
Sea salt and ground black pepper (to taste; optional)
1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1. Heat oil in medium saucepan over very low heat.
2. Add onions; cook, stirring frequently, for about 20 minutes, or until onions are soft and golden brown.
3. Add broth, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic powder. Season with salt and pepper if desired; cook, over medium heat, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes, or until broth has evaporated. Remove from heat. Let onion mixture cool completely.
4. Combine onion mixture and yogurt in a medium bowl; mix well.
