Apply for our 80 Day Obsession Launch Group





***Don’t Miss This Opportunity***


It is no secret that I am a huge fan of Autumn Calabrese. Many Are!! She has changed so many lives with her 21 Day Fix Program, including mine!! So.. I’m super stoked for this!! Especially since it targets abs and BUTT… an area of mine that I really need the help with but so many do. As we grow older these areas are the hardest to conquer!


With this program there are actually 80 separate workouts, crazy right???  You read that right!! No time to get bored!!  You actually get to see the program in real-time, and watch the bodies of the cast change as the workouts progress — including Autumn’s. So far the cast and test groups progress pics are Mind Blowing …  CHECK OUT TRANSFORMATIONS HERE 


I will be hosting a real-time 80-Day Obsession LAUNCH group in January, with a COUNTDOWN TO OBSESSION group starting Dec 20th – available by invitation only.  APPLY HERE


The packages which include Equipment will be launching December 14th!

The focus of 80 Day Obsession is 3-fold. 

1. Build the glutes.  Yes, we all want a great looking back side but its just as important to have a strong butt.  That’s right, glutes are a big muscle that do a lot of work.  We spend a lot of our day sitting on our butts, we need to get those muscles firing and functioning properly.

2. Reduce total body fat, especially in the stubborn belly area and

3. Emphasize the right kind of core work to get flat but defined abdominal’s. It’s no secret that I’ve wanted to build my butt and I’ve been working on it for awhile now. This program proves that with the right combination of exercises and timed nutrition – shaped,  firm glutes that look good and function even better doesn’t have to be restricted to the genetically gifted. The booty is made of muscle and just like any other muscle in the body, it can be built and sculpted.


The focus of 80 Day Obsession is exciting, but what I’m even more excited about is the way I get to deliver it to you over the course of 13 weeks. This isn’t 7 workouts on repeat. Every workout is unique in some way so I keep your body (and your mind) guessing and you never get bored. It’s how I would train you if you were a personal client meeting me in the gym every day.

  • 16 functional and foundational workout routines
  • 45-60 minutes in length
  • 3 total phases with new workouts and moves for each phase
  • Weekly changes to the reps, weights and intensity of that phases’ workouts so you never repeat the exact same workout.
  • Weights, sliders, loops, and HIIT cardio moves to create a lean, sculpted and STRONG body.

I know the lingering question on everyone’s mind is what about the food! Here’s the deal. It’s simple, it’s delicious and it’s gonna get you the results you want. It is  timed and based on your consumption of carbs, fat and especially protein so that your nutrition is actually doing a lot of the work for you when it comes to body shaping and fat burning. Your meals are timed around your actual workout to help grow and firm the muscles you’re working.


I’m confident you guys are going to love this macro-nutrition program because it takes all the guess work out. IT literally tellX you exactly how to eat AND when to eat and we use the familiar container system from 21 Day Fix to make sure you’re getting the right portion and combination of each food group when your body needs it most.


While abs and booty may be a primary objective, this program is designed for your body to function optimally, to be lean, but shockingly strong. Yes, a great looking body is nice, but a great looking body that works well, moves well and feels great is truly a gift!


One last thing… I went with the word “obsession” because to achieve the kind of results this program delivers in just under three months takes a specific type of focus. You could say we’re becoming obsessed with the process, obsessed with the details that help move us forward, obsessed with self-care and obsessed with making physical, mental and even nutritional gains.

What equipment is required  for 80 Day Obsession?


You will some dumbbells (light, medium and heavy), strength slides, and resistance loops. The resistance loops and slides are available on  so you can get them before the program launches. Log in to your account if you have one or click here.
Please NOTE: If you do not have an account yet, you will need to speak to me to get your started RIGHT!!


What is the 80 Day Obsession Nutrition Plan Like?

Let’s Talk Food!!! 
80 Day Obsession follows a TIMED NUTRITION format to optimize muscle performance and recovery with the portion fix container system.

You’ll get small, frequent meals. You never go longer than 3 hours without eating. You have a 6-hour workout block. The pre workout meal is one hour before you work out. You’ll take your Energize 15-20 minutes before your workout. Then, you’ll have your post-workout Recover within an hour of your workout. Your post-workout meal will be consumed within 2 hours of your workout, then again every 2 1/2 to 3 hours after that.

It will be helpful for you to prep meals to bring along with you on the go (make sure you have a small cooler!). You can only get the best results with this program if you actually follow the plan.

How does the 80 Day Obsession Nutrition Plan Differ from 21 Day Fix?

Like the 21 Day Fix, you will calculate your calculate your calorie bracket (A, B, C or D) based on your current weight, your weight loss goals. It uses the very same color-coded portion fix containers that the 21 Day Fix does. However, the 80 Day Obsession Meal Plan takes things a step further by telling you which macronutrients to eat when.

Many of you will actually be consuming more food than you typically do. You will need to fuel your body with the nutrients it needs. Cutting calories too drastically can put you into deprivation mode, where you lack energy, and you experience cravings that are hard to control. Because the 80 Day Obsession Workout Plan is so challenging, you will need to make sure you have enough fuel to get you through it.

With 80 Day Obsession, you’ll also get a “Refeed” day where you get to indulge in extra carbs to build up glycogen stores. This happens around week six, and every few weeks after that.

💚💚Beyond Fitness-
A Taste For Balance For Today’s Families💚💚



IMG_20160518_105146I am going to get real today!!!! I hear to often misguided information on this fantastic super food that I call my life line!!!
So I want to set a few things straight today!!!
You with me????

Shakeology is not a protein shake!!!! I know sometimes it can be easy to compare it to everything else you hear about. But don’t!! Shakeology is a nutrient rich super food. It 100% natural, not one chemical added to it to make it taste better. It contains over 70 Natural ingredients that gives you your daily dose of dense nutrition. -You get your super foods, amino acids, digestive enzymes, anti oxidants, pre and pro-biotics and more. I have tried at least a dozen of others and they don’t compare to the taste or the benefits!!!
I often hear people complaining about the carbs and fats in Shakeology as opposed to others…. Listen I get it!!! I used to think the same thing!! Being on low-carb diets trying to loose that extra baggage is tough! However, these low carb diets are proven to be less efficient when you also try to incorporate them also into a fitness program. Which you should be doing!!!
Yes, carbs are the macronutrient most prone to turn to fat, but that’s only when they’re not being used properly. They’re also the body’s preferred source of fuel, as in, they’re the most efficient way to fuel workouts. Without carbs, your body can convert protein and fat (both dietary and bodily) to fuel, but it’s a less efficient pathway, so may be prone to issues like low blood sugar or worse your muscles may start to break down! So adding Shakeology to your plan shouldn’t harm you in anyway. You should have AT THE LEAST that many carbs in your diet. Simply put, carbs help you work out harder and that will IMPROVE your results.
Here is the big one! It is to expensive—- Now I have talked about this before and I am going to share it again!! I know with today’s economy many people are on fixed incomes. It is hard to think about spending money on a something like this, so let’s take a minutes and LOOK AT THE REAL VALUE.
Take a day and look at how much you spend on a healthy meal? Or just a meal in general? $5 , $6, $7 maybe! If you are eating healthy a salad at the store will run you at least $7!!!! Now look at what you are eating for the one meal. How nutritious is it? Shakeology, will run around $4.33 per shake!!! HELLO!!!!! Are you hearing me yet????
I bet a lot of you spend more than that on your coffee house runs alone!!! I mix mine with Coffee and not only am I getting my most nutritious meal of the day, it tastes so much better than anything I would get at a coffee house!!
Here is something that I share in my challenge groups!! Let’s do a little visualization!!! You go to the store and buy yourself a months worth of meals for just you!! How much do you think you would spend???? Can you duplicate the ingredients and nutrition that you would get with Shakeology??? Think about that!!!! 🍏🍌🍗🍓🍆
I don’t need to loose weight, I don’t need it! —- Ugggg I stomp my feet like a little kid when I hear this!!! People you are missing the point!!! Today’s society has marketed so many quick weight loss fads that we have it in our minds that all nutritious drinks are just for weight loss. We have in in our minds that because we already exercise we don’t need it!! Shakeology is not a weight loss shake!!! Shakeology is about HEALTH!!!! When you put the RIGHT nutrients in your body it helps it to heal, repair, and thrive. You will have more energy, less cravings for all that junk, and YOU WILL become more active!!
Now for those that need to shed a few pounds; with Shakeology, weight loss can be the result of this amazing does of dense nutrition( along with proper exercise) SO AGAIN IF YOU WANT TO LOOSE WEIGHT YOU HAVE TO GET HEALTHY!!!

My family thrives on Shakeology!!! I honestly can not image us not having it everyday!! As a special needs mom I know that everytime I am giving my son a delicious shake to drink as a treat, I am doing more for his body than any medicine ever could!!!

For myself I am a better person, I am more focused, and I have much more energy to be the mom I need to be!!!

I hope this helps clear up a few things and I would love to be your coach and help you get started to healthier lifestyle!!!

Fight Fibromyalgia With Fitness and Nutrition

Two Years ago, it was hard for me to get out of bed every morning! The thought of exercising, doing lunges, and even lifting any sort of weights scared me to death. Walking was about the only thing I could tolerate! In 2011 I was diagnosed for a second time with Fibromyalgia! I went through the medications, the shots, the therapy, you name it and nothing seemed to help. Then one day I said enough and decided it was time for a lifestyle change.

I began exercising following a guided program, eating clean and healthy following specific meal plans, I was feeling better and a bit stronger but I still had a substantial amount of flare ups!! After 1 month I began drinking Shakeology and really started to feel the difference. After 60 days of drinking this amazing super food I went to my doctor and told her how amazing I felt.  Full blood work panel was done and there was no sign of any autoimmune disease! In fact my results were beyond fantastic!!!

fight fibromyalgia

I do not say I cured Fibromyalgia, nooo!!! Not at all!!! However I do believe that our life style and our eating habits play a vital role in how we feel and why this disease is so complicated!!! We have to take responsibility for what we put into our body and stop looking for quick fixes!!

Fibromyalgia is a medical condition characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, tender joints and chronic fatigue. Fibromyalgia can be mild or severe, sporadic or chronic and has no known cure. Medications are available to reduce the pain of Fibromyalgia, but do not eliminate the pain completely. In addition, these medications often have side effects. One particular side effect being the havoc they wreak on the intestinal tract, causing an overgrowth of Candida which may lead to “leaky gut syndrome.” Not only did I have Leaky Gut, but a host of gastrological issues!! Doctors don’t know what causes fibromyalgia, but it most likely involves a variety of factors working together.

Lifestyle changes are the key when living with Fibromyalgia in order to identify triggers and control or dissipate the symptoms. Those living with the most chronic and debilitating type of Fibromyalgia can almost always alleviate the two most severe symptoms – chronic pain and fatigue – by adopting lifestyle changes with or without the use of medication.   Nutrition, sleep, exercise, and stress management can make a huge impact on pain management and quality of life.

Nutrition is one of the most  important in obtaining a healthy, balanced lifestyle. For those who live with Fibromyalgia, a healthy diet is vital. Nutrition is more than just eating your fruits and veggies. Nutrition also refers to the avoidance of highly-processed foods. Unfortunately Scientific research is limited on the relationship between nutrition/diet and Fibromyalgia; many cases show that people experience a decrease in symptoms when highly processed food, caffeine, alcohol, red meat, refined sugar and fried food are removed from their diet. This is how I have conquered it!

Several foods should be avoided when trying to reduce Fibromyalgia symptoms and these are based on my own experience, but the research is out there to validate. These food categories include:

  • High fat dairy food
  • Refined (white) sugars
  • White flour
  • Fried foods
  • Preservatives and additives
  • High-fructose corn syrup
  • Junk food High salt foods
  • Red meat Meats preserved by being smoked cured or nitrate cured, such as lunch meats
  • Coffee and caffeine
  • Sodas and carbonated beverages
  • Aspartame and all other artificial sweeteners
  • MSG (monosodium glutamate)

Fitness is another key component to reducing the symptoms of Fibromyalgia! No it is not easy at first but eventually over time you get stronger, the pain goes away, and it does get easier. Stretching, yoga, and Myofacial release are all important routines to incorporate into any Fitness program for someone suffering with Fibromyalgia!

As an online Coach I work with people everyday that are going back to the basics! Back to the way our bodies were suppose to be fueled! With whole natural foods that are not saturated with chemicals and additives!!  Lives are being changed, my life was changed, and yours can to!!

Medicine doesn’t work! Doctors Don’t know what causes it! Honestly think about it, what do you have to loose but try???
