Every speaking engagement I do, I get everyone moving and interacting with each other. I have never had a group that I couldn’t get to laugh like we did when we were kids… Seriously, I have worked with lawyers, accountants, engineers, and high powered wealthy CEO’s and it is always awesome to lighten up the atmosphere with laughter.
Learning should be about FUN, and doing things that you normally wouldn’t do. I think having fun is what is missing in today’s society, and also the fun in today’s workouts. I don’t believe Zumba is the best workout around, but for people who like to dance, it is FUN for them, and for that I say go for it!
I was reflecting back on our FM4L 6 Week Challenge groups in Madison, WI, a program that has taken nearly a year to develop and 10 years worth of experience that has gone into it. I was speaking with a woman who is doing the challenge with her mom. She said her mom laughs through the entire workout. That was great to hear, because I intentionally had a few good guy friends apart of the group workout DVDs to make things goofy and fun. Nutrition shouldn’t be hard and complicated either. It should be simple, straight forward and fun. My natural-nutritionist Tracie Hittman-Fountain, who I have been working with for 6 years, and who is the mastermind behind the eating plan, made it as simple as possible for moms or anyone else to cook and prepare.
This morning I received an inspiring email from a woman named Laura. I want to stress her results are NOT typical. I also want to show it is possible for some whose bodies aren’t in a healthy homeostasis balance when following the the Fit Moms for Life plan exactly, results will happen!
Laura Loses 9 lbs in One Week on the Fit Moms for Life 6 Week Challenge.
“When I was down to only 2 pairs of shorts that fit, I was ready for a change. I cut out all the really bad stuff: pop, doughnuts, cookies. But I was still working out as usual and having the occasional frozen pizza, maybe 2 servings at a time. After 2 weeks of doing it alone there was no change in the scale. What was wrong?
I had been receiving Dustin’s newsletter for 2 years and knew he would be able to help me. I emailed him, introducing myself and asking what he could do to help. I also started scouring his newsletters, gleaning all I could. I noticed there was a 6 week challenge coming up and thought this might be what I needed! Dustin answered my email within a day and told me about the challenge: new exercises for me, a meal plan, and a support group that meets once a week (plus Dustin to answer all my questions, inferred).
I signed up, picked up my materials, and I tried his fit moms’ workout right away, where we got to push an SUV around the parking lot, just like on The Biggest Loser! Then I went to his Elver Park boot camp. That hill is hard even for someone who exercises a lot! The meal plan is just what I needed. You just pick a breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks from the list, and there are recipes for the main dishes. I said to myself, “Where are all the big salads?” There are some salads, but mostly, hearty, healthy foods. In a week, I have lost 9 pounds. When you sign up, be sure to try the sweet potato souffle and the spinach quiche. Mmmm!?”
Thanks Laura for sharing and for your commitment and excitement for the program.
There are a couple great lessons we can learn from Laura, no matter what type of program or routine you join/start.
#1 A problem… Laura was down to two pairs of shorts that fit her. This was her pain point that made her take action.
#2 Do what she knew how to do… Laura eliminated the obvious things that we all know are bad. This is a great first step, but in her case didn’t get her to her desired outcome.
#3 Asked for her… Laura reached out to me for help
#4 Became educated… Laura went back to the probably hundreds of newsletters I had sent her over the past few years to glean as much as she could.
#5 She took action and purchased the FM4L 6 Week Challenge for just $99.
#6 She followed the program and didn’t waiver from it.
Like I said this is a great recipe to follow for awesome results no matter if you do any of my programs, P90X, CrossFit, Zumba, or the hundreds of other programs out there.
Due to the large response in Madison for the FM4L six week challenge that I am holding, I am going to add a second time slot on Thursday nights at 7 pm! I have my first kickoff party this Tuesday (Oct 22) night at 7 pm at the Fit Moms TC, 202 South Gammon Road. Everyone who has signed up or wants to hear more about it before making a decision can come and hang out with me that night. We will be watching a short powerful video, getting to know each other and having a lot of fun. THEN the next week we will officially start, so nothing on Thursday the 24th, but we will meet on the 31st (Halloween).
