Ready to commit to being Summer Strong?

Ready to commit to being Summer Strong? You’re probably surprised to know that Ryan & I don’t strike this kind of pose randomly lol! 😁 But we wanted to express how freaking good we felt after our workout 😆 & it got us thinking about something that’s really resonated with us these days as the countdown to summer continues… Who feels like the summer months are extremely difficult when it comes to nutrition & fitness? BBQs, vacations, camping, family events (w/ delicious food), kids parties, concerts, festivals… We do!! It’s hard to keep up the momentum & energy that we built up over the winter 🙂 So how about this? A Summer Strong commitment … which means you don’t throw away your goals over the summer months… it means that we start now and stay strong! What are we thinking? A 3-week group where you’ll have daily accountability in a private FB group, we’ll share recipes, you’ll have kickass at-home workouts (we’ll help you choose something that’ll suit you best), 30 superfood smoothies, and a 30-day trial of 1000 other workout programs including pilates/yoga, cardio kickboxing, HIIT workouts, weight lifting, us as your free coaches helping you reach your goals and so much more. 😉 Are you in? Message/Contact us HERE and we’ll send you the deets! We start Monday, May 30, 2016 👊🏻 Space is limited to the first 10 who commit 👌🏻     *Please no coaches or those currently working with...
Success Story Sunday: Sylvia & Alan

Success Story Sunday: Sylvia & Alan

Success Story Sunday: Sylvia & Alan WE DID IT!!!! That was the first thing my mom said to me when I answered her call this last week after she and my dad had finally hit their goal weights after over 2 years of a dedicated focus on exercise and nutrition! Here’s the re-cap as written by my mom: I have been on a journey since December 7th, 2013. It has been a long journey, with many ups and downs but I have reached my goal and I am so happy! As one gets into those golden years the idea of doing exercise and changing your eating habits comes with the big question WHY! Old habits are hard to change. BUT with a lot of determination and the support of Game Changers (our daughter and son-in-law’s motivational exercise and eating group), we and I say we, as my husband, Alan, followed along with me, and we accomplished our goals. Alan lost about 37 pounds and I lost the same, 37 POUNDS over a period of 28 months. We achieved these goals through exercise, better eating habits and drinking Shakeology. For exercise we wore out our treadmill and then replaced it with an elliptical. Along with this, I have been doing an exercise program called Cize and Alan has been doing P90. After years of being couch potatoes through the winter and riding golf carts in the summer we changed some bad habits and have added some healthier years to our lives. Isn’t that an inspiring Success Story!? So what are you waiting for? Proof positive right here that your goals are...
Transformation Tuesday: Lauren

Transformation Tuesday: Lauren

Transformation Tuesday: Lauren “These programs work!” That was the resounding response from the members of our last online accountability aroup… a private Facebook group where we stay motivated together, inspired daily and stay accountable to each others goals. We have been running these groups for a couple of years now and are always blown away. Why? THEY WORK!!! Accountability is the missing ingredient for a lot of people. If you’re not accountable to someone to help you reach your goals… to push play on your workout program… stay on track with your nutrition… 9 out of 10 times you will fail. But having someone there to lift you up and push you through times of struggle? That right there? GOLD! These are the words of one of our latest Challenge Group members (and newest Beachbody Coaches!) Lauren Hyatt: “I LOVE BEACHBODY AND BEACHBODY WORKS. I truly discovered that by honing in on nutrition and focusing on your workouts and progress everyday- it forces you to keep looking forward and pushing forward. I have had so many issues with eating in my life but this has by far been the most successful plan. I work well in a team accountability environment. Hey and who knew???? the more work I did the better it got, the more rewarding it got and I started to have fun. Shakeology has completely kicked my cravings – LOVE IT!! I literally NEVER thought this could happen. I had lost all hope. TRULY. My clothes fit better, I feel great! I am super critical of myself though and still have a long way to go BUT...
How to repurpose your leftovers

How to repurpose your leftovers

HOW TO REPURPOSE YOUR LEFTOVERS It’s SUNDAY (at the original time of this post ;))!!!… a day which many people use for meal prepping and planning! So, it got us thinking… how many times we’ ve looked at a recipe only to be deterred from trying it because we don’t know we’re going to do with all the leftover ingredients! How many times this is happened to you? Well, we just so happened to find this quick and accessible list of SIMPLE ways to repurpose your leftovers in our new 22 Minute Hard Corps program food plan… and because this is definitely another key strategy and sticking to your plan and reaching your goals… Here it is for YOU: LEFTOVER MEATS Chicken, pork, beef, or fish can become tacos or wraps. Use lettuce or a large, very thin slice of jicama for the tortilla or wrapper. LEFTOVER VEGETABLES AND COOKED PASTA Pair with eggs to become frittatas. You can make individual frittatas by combining 6 eggs with ½ cup water. Add leftover veggies, cooked protein (like chopped turkey bacon), or cooked pasta. Fill sprayed muffin cups ¾ full. Bake at 375° F for 15 to 18 minutes. Refrigerate or freeze frittatas individually. LEFTOVER HARD BOILED EGGS Can be mixed with reduced fat Greek yogurt and curry powder to make curried egg salad. VEGETABLES AND COOKED BROWN RICE Combine cooked veggies and cooked brown rice plus protein to make “bowls.” MAKE A HEALTHIER HOMEMADE VEGGIE PATTY This can also use up leftover brown rice. Place 1 part cooked brown rice and 3 parts veggies (like chopped mushrooms, beans, chickpeas, or...
Bored with Chicken?

Bored with Chicken?

BORED WITH CHICKEN? I hear a lot from our clients that they get bored with chicken… and I have to admit that I’ve said it a few times myself! When you start a journey into cleaner eating the first protein you go to is chicken for a number of reasons. It has a lower fat and higher protein rating than most other meats. It is a natural anti-depressant (who knew??) and will naturally boost your metabolism! However… you can still get pretty tired of eating it day after day after day. So… ya gotta get creative! But still keep it simple. Who has time time prepare a huge chicken dinner anymore? Here are four quick chicken recipes to spice up the menu and keep preparation time low! Bon appetit!

Wicked Wednesday: Nicki’s Journey

Wicked Wednesday: Nicki’s Journey

Time for a heartfelt story from my friend, and one of my Coaches, Nicki who’s been on a journey that started long ago. She’s come so far and I am so incredibly proud of her… I’ve never compared pictures of my “before and after” mostly because it’s been a really bumpy ride. Lots of up and downs. I’ve always been a bigger girl… not huge, but never fit. I ate what I wanted and kept busy riding horses and such, but never any sort of working out. The left picture is of me at my heaviest. It was a year out of university. The right is a few weeks ago. I never had a “light bulb” moment, but about a year after my heaviest I had a job where I was really active and lost a lot of weight. I felt great and when I started to gain some weight again (never got my eating in line) I freaked out and took up running and did that for a few years. Somewhere along the line I found some cheap fitness DVDs and had pretty good results with them, but I was obsessive. I worked out a good 3 hours a day… running 12 miles was an easy day for me. I didn’t see at the time, but I was too small. At that point, I became pregnant with our first child and gained a lot of weight. I felt miserable the whole time. I did lose it quickly, but once again developed an unhealthy obsession with exercise. I found Insanity in this time and fell in love with the...
