Fitness – The Underutilized Mental Health Tool

Anxiety is a b*t*h
Today was one of the bad ones and after working myself into an anxious nauseous mess, the last thing I wanted to do was workout.
But I know better.
I threw on workout clothes and got it done anyway.
Why??? Because I truly do believe fitness is one of the most underutilized mental health tools out there.

I challenge you to try it next time…
Go MOVE… you’ll be so happy that you did 


Consistency is Key!

You ready for the SECRET to weight loss SUCCESS?! It’s NOT a wrap, a pill, a fat burner, a skinny tea or a shake.
It can’t be BOTTLED up, marketed, or SOLD…. although everyone does try.
It’s not GLAMOUROUS, Fancy, or FAST… 
It’s CONSISTENCY. Day in and day out staying consistent with healthy habits. Even when you don’t really feel like it. Even when it feels like it’s taking forever. Even when you have a bad day. And despite all of your OBSTACLES and excuses, you still stick with it.
Just stay CONSISTENT. I promise…it works. Day one was a success…onto day two


For the love of flub…

There is a story behind this very odd picture I promise… see that flub I’m holding. I noticed it in my bathing suit the other day and smiled.. odd reaction right?!

What you don’t know is one of the few college memories I have is of that flub. I remember noticing it for the first time at school. I stood in my Mitchell hall dorm room for about 20 minutes analyzing it, crying, squeezing, poking, and pinching.

I was starting to increase my calories after years of restricting and I was miserable in my skin… looking back I was still incredibly underweight at the time, but I didn’t feel it.

So why did I see it and smile?! Because I took it as a sign that ANYTHING that weighs on your mind can be OVERCOME. It just takes time, but you can do it too

So what the heck is this all about?! Shift shop is a 3 week rapid rebuild program for anyone who wants to ramp up their fitness fast. It goes from basic 25 minute workouts to advanced 45 minute routines, all while dialing in nutrition for optimal results.

This is great for all fitness levels.  If you have a lot of weight to lose, shift shop will be your on-ramp to fitness.  If you have spent time away from your regular routine, Chris will lead you through a fitness tune-up. The workouts are 25-45 minutes a day, 6 days a week for 3 weeks and there is a modifier for every workout!

Here’s a peak at the program:

The nutrition plan uses the Portion Fix to measure out your food. Based on your current weight, you’ll match to a certain number of portions each day. What’s different is your food list – it changes throughout the 3 weeks of the program. You might be allowed certain foods in week 1 that you’ll no longer be allowed to eat in week 3. By week three, the plan eliminates grains and increases a bit in healthy fats and unlimited veggies!

Here are some transformations from the test group so far… how impressive are they?!
