Well my fitness journey and life really started 2 years ago. At that time I could look into a mirror and tell myself I was not there. I am in a career field where you actually need to be fit to be able to perform and do your job duties. I finally made the conscious decision to look at what my options were. In the past I had a gym membership to various big gyms and would go but I had no direction and lacked the know-how. I can remember back in high school I was fit because I was young and playing sports. Then life happened. I spent years building terrible habits and really not paying attention to what I needed to do to stay optimal.
A questions I hear time and time again sound a little like this… “How long will it take to…?”
While I get the idea and how it can be motivating it is extremely limiting. If someone is looking to lose 30lbs and they want to know how long it will take then they are capping themselves off at 30 pounds. When an imaginably ceiling is set we often see a hard charge towards and some great progress made which is great. The down side to this is it is not leaving room for more. They are not allowing themselves the creativity of looking left and right along the way which will ultimately motivate and inspire over the long haul
Instead of asking how long will it take, start asking yourself how far can I go?
This changes the game. The ceiling is removed and the blinders are off. Now we can start having so much more fun. This question leads to more steps and adventures in the progress instead of one far off goal. By asking how far you can go we open creative doors such as:
- When I lose 10lbs can I take the stairs to my office with out getting winded?
- When I lose 20lbs will I be able to get on my bike and ride trails with my kids?
- When I lose 30lbs the outfit to my best friends wedding will be stunning!
- When I’m maintaining my goal weight I’ll be so much stronger I’ll be able to hike a 14er!
- When I’m leaner, healthier, stronger I’ll look amazing and feel confident with my spouse on our 30th anniversary beach vacation!
When you ask yourself how far you can go, you can get excited about the little bit that will lead to a lot. Which also helps allow the fitness to become the outcome and not the goal.

Boost Your Fat Loss,

For A Lifetime, Not Another Season!
It all starts with our annual New Year New You Transformation Contest!
With our decades of combined experience in personal training, fat loss, nutrition and, lifestyle coaching we have come to the realization that we don’t have a problem losing weight. Every year millions of adults set out to ‘lose weight’ and the truth is they do. We’ve done it, you’ve done it, and you’ve probably done it several times, and you’re getting pretty good at it. The problem is that it doesn’t last. The truth is we have a weight REGAIN problem and not a weight loss problem. It’s true, only 5 percent of those who lose weight on a diet keep it off; 95% regain it. A significant percentage gain back more than they originally lost.
We see this for many reasons…
A little about me…I have twin girls and enjoy spending outdoor time with my family. I also work full time and love my job of taking care of pediatric patients. When I was younger I stayed active riding mountain bikes, hiking, and rock climbing. However I did not grow up with a good nutritional foundation. In college I took some nutrition courses and appreciated all of the knowledge I gained.
My greatest struggles were maintaining motivation and eating properly. When I joined Fit Soldiers I had just run my first 10k. My children were young and I was having trouble finding opportunities for other means of exercise. I was also working night shift which made consistency problematic.
