What Is Holding you back?

Over my years working in fitness and nutrition, I’ve worked with A LOT of clients.


I’ve had to navigate what holds them back.


I’ve talked to hundreds of people about their struggles with weight. I know about

the fear of failing again, the fear of starting over, and the fear of falling off the wagon.


I know about the cravings and how/what to eat to get a lean

body that’s sustainable. I’ve watched them spend endless hours on

treadmills, working with trainers, and exercising with little to no return on their

time and energy investment.


And I’ve seen them give up time and time again.


After coaching hundreds of clients and learning about their most significant areas of struggle, several things stand out as major issues that cause setbacks or failures, but what the overlying issue boils down to is TIME. They don’t have time.


I’ve been able to help these same people who once felt endlessly trapped in a vicious cycle by time transform their bodies using methods they can rely on forever.


Here’s what to do:


  1. Learn how simple nutrition really is. You don’t need supplements, shakes,

pills, or anything aside from food. You don’t have to eliminate carbs or eat

chicken and lettuce, and that’s it. Foods that promote fat loss taste AMAZING

and take very little time to prepare. You can also go out to eat frequently and

lose weight. It’s just a matter of knowing what to order!


  1. Exercise for maximum efficiency. You need the most bang for your buck

because of the time crunch. You need to train your entire body, get your

cardio in, and break a sweat. The easiest way to do this is with the workouts

that I provide.


  1. Mindset. Everything starts with believing that your goals are possible to

achieve and making up your mind that you’re doing this thing NO MATTER

WHAT. That you’ll strive to be better by just 1% every day. Accept that there

will be setbacks, but there is no giving up. There is no failure this time. It is so much easier when you realize you don’t have to dedicate every waking

moment and thought to your weight loss!


  1. Stop trying to be perfect. I would go CRAZY if I had to be perfect all the

time with my fitness and nutrition, even as a pro! I love junk food and have

created parameters that are effortless to follow. It’s called the 80/20 rule.


80% of the time, I stay on track; 20 % of the time, I’m flexible with my choices. It takes practice, but it’s quite simple and easy to get the hang of.


If all this sounds great to you, you may still be wondering where in the world to start. Don’t worry! I’ve got you covered!


So, let me know how I can help!
