Motivation.  Confidence.  Self-worth. Transformation.  Happiness.  Better mood.  All of the things you feel or achieve when you workout.

You’re willing to spend your money on gimmicks and products that may help you drop the weight quickly but it doesn’t teach you how to keep it off for good.  Stop taking advice from someone that doesn’t have a college or university degree or any formal type of education surrounding health and wellness.  You only have one body and as far as we know, one life.  Your health is not something to experiment with.  Just like you wouldn’t ask a friend to perform a dental surgery on you, why would you turn to a non-certified, uneducated individual for health and wellness advice?  Even a massage.  Would you trust your friend to give you a massage or would you see the assistance of an RMT?  The art of personal training is methodical and scientific based.  It’s a health science for a reason.  As someone that has graduated from an elite fitness and health program I am educated on the anatomy of the human body (I performed a bell ringer just like an RMT or Chiropractor would have), biomechanics, workout periodization, special populations (aging, prenatal, injuries, diseases, etc.), various fitness assessment testing, fitness appraisals and how to read an ECG test just to name a few.

I am not just a personal trainer who you see for 60 minutes and then don’t hear from me again until our next session.  I am your coach, cheerleader, friend, therapist and psychologist.  I will never put you down and will never make you perform an exercise that is unattainable or could make you susceptible to injuries.  I always have an open line of communication to check-in.  I like to see how you’re feeling, chat about your meal planning and what type of exercise you are doing when I am not with you.  I create monthly plans to keep you on track.  There are so many options to keep you moving forward.  No two people’s workout plans will ever be the same.  That’s the beauty of having a personal trainer in your corner.  Trainers are there for YOU.  We aren’t there to get our own workout in (that should be part of our own work/life balance), we are there to help you succeed every way possible.  I will not allow you to make excuses (because those never got anyone results) and will always make sure I continuously motivate and cheer you on to success.  I am not here to make you feel bad or devalue your worth.  Everyone, both men and women, are entitled to feel their best. You didn’t get to where you are by working out 5 times a week and eating fruits and vegetables all day.  I know that’s quite blunt but it’s the truth and the faster you can realize what you need to do in order to change (with my help) the faster you will see results.  Somewhere along the line you lost your drive to be something better, to lead a healthy lifestyle.  You lost who YOU were.  Let’s find that old you together and re-identify your self-worth.  This is a lifestyle change that will forever change your entire outlook on life.  It’s the most wonderful feeling when you notice results and feel accomplishments for small things in your daily life that you couldn’t do before.  Yo-Yo dieting or trying every new fitness trend DOES NOT WORK!  Let’s realize that now so you can start fresh and start making permanent lifestyle changes.

You may think that personal training is a luxury but let me put it to you this way.  Your life  is the most important luxury you can own.  EVERYONE (including personal trainers) needs a Personal Trainer.  I’ve personally had one and it was the greatest investment I made.  That’s not to say that I can’t put a stellar program together and see results.  I love having the guidance of a knowledgable professional that is going to motivate me for that hour.  I like having the appointment in my calendar because it makes me feel in control of my daily life instead of fitting it in when I can and perhaps forgetting about it all day until it’s far too late to get a workout in.  Whether you’re looking to lose weight, gain weight, train for a race, train for a specific sport or are stuck with your routine, have plateaued and need a challenge, EVERYONE needs a personal trainer.  Re-allocate that budget you would’ve spent on gimmicks and trendy workouts to hiring Fizzique Fitness.  We will not only provide you with a fitness program that will transform your body but we will teach you what you need to do on a daily basis to ensure you achieve your goals.  At Fizzique Fitness, we change lives and make you stronger everyday.  You can invest in your health now, or you can pay for it later.  Either way, it’s going to cost you.

I have known Angela for quite some time.  She started as a friend but when she decided to make a commitment to her fitness routine she contacted me to assist.  I was very excited to help her but also a little nervous because when you’re already friends with someone there is added pressure.  Will my programs be successful?  Will she enjoy the workouts?  A lot of questions crossed my mind before starting our sessions but once we did I was reassured that this was a right fit.
Angela really wanted to focus on kickboxing for her training.  She had done some of this kind of training at her gym but wanted to add more to her workout routine.  Since I run MMA classes in our town she sought me out to have her training sessions centred around this style of training.  MMA or kickboxing really proves to be a sure way to lose weight because of the many components involved with the sport.  You get a crazy amount of toning because you’re actually hitting an object and it’s a great cardio workout.
Here is her story.

My weight loss journey started in February 2014. My youngest daughter was just over 2 years old and I was still carrying some baby weight. I weighed 156lbs and each week the number would climb. I felt tired and I didn’t feel good about myself. I decided to join a local gym. After going to the gym on-and-off for a year I lost a total of 8lbs. My problem was that after 5 months I stopped making progress and I had not yet achieved my goal.

Before

In mid-April 2015 I weighed 148lbs and was still struggling to lose the last 10 pounds. I contacted Alexis Talledes of Fizzique. We discussed my goals, my diet and my routine. I committed to 10 weeks of personal training with Alexis. Each week she brought something different to my workout; strength training, MMA and TRX. Within that 10 weeks I reached my goal weight of 137lbs and noticed a significant change in my physique. Alexis kept me focused on the task, and designed training that I actually enjoyed. Alexis’ enthusiasm and knowledge, as well as her ability to motivate allowed me to achieve goals that I was unable to on my own.

We completed 1 set of 10 sessions and are onto our next set of 10.  I ensured to take her measurements at this point and before and after photos and here is were she is today.

Our next focus is to strengthen her core so we have been utilizing the TRX system quite a bit in our sessions.  This piece of equipment is amazing because it’s so portable and really enhances every single exercise ensuring your body gets a killer workout.  We still incorporate the kickboxing combinations as it really drives her heart rate up and will keep her working towards her goals.

This is one client that walks the walks and talks the talk when it comes to her fitness goals.  Nothing will get in her way of her success.  This is someone that all women struggling with their goals should aspire to be like.
