Helping other Women Lose Weight

I used to lack confidence and I was not happy with my body. I needed a change in my life, and I knew I needed to take control. I knew the secret to becoming fit was my eating habits and physical activity. I began spending 60 minutes or so engaged in physical activity, and I did this 6 days a week. I transformed my body and restored my spirit. The News Herald Lighten up contest gave me the drive I needed to get my weight under control again. With my new passion for fitness, I studied and received my certification as a personal trainer so that I could begin training other women and help them reach their fitness goals. Although I am here to help them, their courage became my inspiration as they fought hard to lose weight and get in shape. I noticed when their fitness levels improved their confidence soared. Not all women progress at the same pace. Sadly, those women who didn’t lose weight as quickly had more of a tendency to give up and quit.

Attached are some before and after pictures of one of my current clients at Slim & Fit, that did not give up. I am so proud of the transformation in her. I can’t take all the credit, she did a lot of hard work. She never missed a work out and followed the Slim & Fit nutrition plan to get where she is today. She has become my master piece and I wanted to show off our hard work! She is now a great friend and continues to train with me twice a week. I have no doubt that she will continue to eat healthy and exercise.

Let me help you with your weight loss goals!

Doesn't she look great?

Lose Weight and keep it off - This really works

Have you been looking for a way to lose weight and keep it off for good? Are you willing to do a little work in order to drop some pounds? Then you are reading the right blog! I am going to tell you the secret to losing weight and keeping it off.

The obvious formula is to reduce the amount of food you eat and exercise. However following that formula may not give you the results you are looking for. This works for a short time but then you begin to plateau. Even increasing your aerobic activity has little effect. But we can change that.

You can see eye opening results, if you simply add resistance training to your fitness program. You will notice a change in your weight and size. Even before the scale reveals it, you will see it in the mirror. If you don't have a full length mirror, it's time to get one. Not only will you see a change in the way you look, these exercises are important to build strength and flexibility. All you need is thirty minutes a day, but if you have longer than that then go for it.

Of, course what you eat will determine how much weight you lose. You want to cut back on fat, sugar and salt. Don't expect exercise alone to take care of your weight loss goals. You have to eat less and burn more calories to actually lose weight. I like to use the LOSE IT App. It is free for iphones and ipads you can also go to  Give it a try.

I teach some strength training classes that can help you get started. Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings at Slim and Fit in Concord. Tuesday and Thursday evenings at Hope Ridge Church in Concord. If you would like to join us please send me an email at
