It's all about success and keeping yourself up so you can hit your goals and do so as quickly as you can.

This is not your typical goal talk... these are new fresh ideas like:

The Motivation Equation. It's an equation that can help you evaluate anything you're doing in life and figure out how to approach it with more motivation.

How you can use success spirals to create small goals that not only help you hit succeed faster, but help you practically eliminate failure.

How you can tackle big goals like weight loss from a direction that gets you so pumped up you'll be 100x more likely to succeed.

Plus a lot more.

This episode, Dan is back with me and we are relaxing and talking about some of the stories that have been hitting the media lately. 

The New Year is always really crazy with stories about weight loss, fitness, workouts, nutrition, food, and so much more. So we thought we'd talk about it, share some insights, hopefully get your insights, and see what we can learn.

You'll learn why obesity seems to be growing faster and faster and what can we possibly do to help slow it down.

Why Instagram is dishing out insanely fit and big booty women and whether that's something that's motivating or not.

How dieting is not so popular anymore.

Plus some of the biggest fitness trends for 2014. These are all predictive of course, but it does seem like a lot is going to be changing in the new year.

We came up with ten good ideas that are different slants on how to approaching being healthy... about how to get in the best shape possible... and so much more. 

You'll learn...

Why you should stop thinking about losing weight altogether.

Why calories have nothing to do with the health of food.

Why how intense your workout is means nothing when it comes the effectiveness of your workout.

Why the key to success in 2014 should be to scare yourself silly.

Plus so much more. I really hope you enjoy this episode.

So you may or may not have heard the news about how much more it costs to eat healthy. It's been all over the main news channels, so I'm sure you heard.

In light of this big dollar amount, we thought is appropriate to give you some great ways you can add more healthy food into your diet for much much less than the so called "experts" say.

You'll learn the "P" word that holds all the power... it's completely revolutionized out weekly food budget. In fact when we don't follow it... everything falls apart.

You'll learn a grocery shopping trick I use to save anywhere from $10 to $30 per week in groceries. $30 obviously being on the high end.

You'll learn how a few small and simple decisions can give you enough money to buy all the organic food you need.

Plus so much more. 

I hope this episode of the podcast helps give you at least one good tip you can use to add a higher quality of food into your daily diet.

Dan, my husband, is back in this episode. We catch you up on things happening in our fitness lives including cool things we've read and have done. 

In particular, you will learn about a new study that shows the young generations of today are less competitive. What does that mean if anything?

We also talk about the great six pack bet. However, this is not like any six pack bet you've seen before because the parameters are much different than you would think. I like to call it the empowering six pack bet.

We talk about testing on our bodies. Right now we are in the middle of a nutrition test. Experimenting on your body is a great way to learn how it reacts and what you can do that will really make a difference. 

I hope you enjoy this episode and please leave a five start review in iTunes.

It's About Fitness First - Random Dan and I Conversations

This was a talk that Dan and I did last weekend. We really enjoy talking together as always we end up talking about all sorts of things. I swear, we try to stay on one topic but then it just goes all over the place.

In this episode we talk about our recent paddleboard expidition... our first time trying stand up paddleboarding. 

We also talk about giving things up for the short term but they not sticking with something that is really good for you.

What our favorite oils are.

And of course what we've noticed with clients both in person and online... that fitness first tends to produce better long term results when it comes to weight loss, strength, and happiness.

I hope you enjoy this episode.

It's been so long since Dan and I had a good conversation together. We have decided that when we talk now, we'll keep our conversations to one topic rather than go all over the place. I hope this helps you get your training in a better place so you can see better results.

In this episode, we talk about getting started with bodyweight training, when it's good to move to weights and maybe even kettlebells. 

I think this is all about thinking about training differently and to give you some good ideas about how to progress safely and how you don't really need to progress to weights if you want to. But you'll see what we mean.

Enjoy the episode!

This is a fun episode of What The Fitness with just Dan and I. During this conversation we talk about a bunch of different things like...

Why one of our clients, Sherry, is going to be a major weight loss and strength success story. She does something that most women are not willing to do, but it's a good example of what it means to want it really badly. I think you'll learn a lot from Sherry and how she is approaching her weight loss efforts. 

We also talk about why women find guys with guitars more attractive and the gym going guy the least attractive. Plus why verbal motivation is not as effective as you would think when it comes to exercise. However, there is more to this story than you know. 

I really hope you enjoy this weeks episode of What The Fitness and make sure you check out Lifting Revolution for more great fitness and nutrition training and advice. Plus join me at Fit Women's Weekly for weekly workouts and an real training environment so you can burn fat and keep it off forever!

This past episode was a longer one and crazy to boot. We talked about all sorts of great things and let the fitness and nutrition conversation go free. We talked about body image a lot including breast augmentation. My husband Dan had some views that are different so forgive him. Ha! 

One thing that was really important was talking about not eating enough food and how that can hamper your ability to lose inches and weight. This is a very common problem for women and fixing it can open the flood gates to better results. 

I hope you enjoy this fun and revealing episode of What The Fitness. Make sure you subscribe and give us a 5 start rating. Also check out for more great information regarding strength training, fitness, weight loss, nutrition, and having fun leading a healthy life!
