That's a wrap! The Winter 2015 Fitness Is Freedom Results Club ended this week with a celebration lunch for participants. The nine-week fitness accountability program was created to help participants establish healthy, sustainable nutrition and exercise habits that would enable them to live more fulfilling lives. It is based on my years of experience coaching, facilitating and training women to become more empowered through better health.
Collectively, the 10 participants in this group lost 20.9% body fat, increased muscle mass by 11.5% and reduced their body age by 17 years through consistent mindful eating, effective exercise, good hydration, group support, and most importantly, the right mindset. With group support and weekly guidance, they developed the discipline to plan ahead for meals, to pre-schedule exercise sessions, to overcome barriers to their success, and to incorporate their families into the process.
To say that I am proud of these 10 amazing women is an understatement. I get as much out of these programs as they do, because I consider it my ministry to share my knowledge of fitness with those who desire it. Watching them transform physically, emotionally and psychologically is a privilege. The best part isn't even the composition changes they experienced. When they tell me how positive they feel about themselves, how their significant others have a renewed interest in them and how self-motivated they are--that's the good stuff.
One participant, who dropped a clothing size and finally feels comfortable wearing sleeveless shirts, expressed that her husband is noticeably more amorous, while another participant's spouse commented on her increased confidence. And that's the key. While they got stronger and leaner, none of these ladies received new bodies through the program. Parts weren't replaced and blemishes weren't erased. What developed, however, was confidence, which fits every shape and size, and is far more attractive than the most chiseled arms or flattest stomach.
I look forward to watching how they continue to blossom, and I'm excited to support another group of participants in the Spring 2015 Results Club (runs April-May, ending before school commences for summer). If you're in the Saint Johns, FL, area and want to experience the same kind of life-changing results, I have just a few spots left in the next session.
