Isabel joined the Mission:Slimpossible challenge and was eager to get started.  She was committed to attending 3 nights a week as often as she could and emailed me whenever she had a question or wanted to know what more she could do to see results.  I loved receiving her emails and finding out that her kids were getting in on the at home workouts and holding her accountable as well. People like Isabel are why I love what I do.  Doesn’t make excuses and keeps reminding herself that it takes time to see results.  She knows quick fixes don’t work and true weight loss takes time.  Congratulations Isabel on your success with the program and I look forward to seeing you in the next session.  Isabel lost 5 inches, 4.6 lbs and 3.5% body fat.
Here’s Isabel’s story.
I am a mother of 3 and i have struggled with my weight for the last 6 years. My youngest are only a year and a half apart. I had no time in between to lose any weight from my second pregnancy and after my third I had what felt like 3x the extra weight that I had before even having any kids. Everything I have tried has only been temporary.  The most effective way I was loosing any weight was going to the gym, but that didn’t last long. There was no motivation to go. Sometimes i was hearing myself say I can always go tomorrow and then it turned into a week and a week into a month. With such a busy life I gave up going to the gym and the pounds came back. Taking the kids from soccer to karate to swimming I had no time for myself so I would sometimes skip meals or eat late or eat on the go. I got to the point where I had to make a choice; make the change for the better for myself or keep going downhill and feel miserable.
I saw all the great reviews online for Alexis’ bootcamp and decided to give it a try. Why not? What did I have to loose? A couple of pounds is better than nothing. I had to start somewhere. I did the slimpossible challenge with the meal plan and loved it!! I lost pounds, lost inches and felt great about myself. I felt motivated all the time. Every class is different. My favourite was the kickboxing. I made myself accountable to go and met a great group of ladies. The meal plan is simple and easy to do.
I also have Alexis’ workout DVD which I use 3x a week. The 10 minute workouts are awesome and help me to keep the weight off.
This has been a great experience and I can’t wait to start another session.

Do you want to get back to your pre-baby body? Our classes can make this happen and then some. Karyn is a mom of 2 and was very successful on our Mission:Slimpossible program. She actually ended up WINNING the entire challenge!! Here are her before and after photos along with a more recent photo of her trying on a pair of shorts she wore pre baby #2. As you can see they are TOO BIG!!! She weighs the same as she did pre-baby but has significantly lost inches. This is a great visual for those that are obsessed with the number on the scale because by the way these shorts fit, it doesn’t matter what it says on the scale. She lost INCHES!!! And that is a positive motivator. She is more toned and has more muscle then she did before and that is why her clothes are fitting differently.

Recent photo where Karyn tried on her pre-pregnancy shorts and they were too big.

Below is a testimonial from her about her experience with our program. If you’re stuck in a rut or keep yo-yo dieting/exercising and want to see results, then you need to join our program. Inconsistency will not enhance your body. A regimented schedule will. Get in the mindset that you deserve this same success but also remind yourself that for permanent results, it takes time. There is no quick fix. Karyn has been working hard and the payoff is outstanding. Round up your support group and get fit together.

After having my second baby I wanted to get back in shape right away as I had been very active before my pregnancy. In mid June 2014, at 6 weeks postpartum I joined Fizzique’s boot camp and was doing the Weight Watchers program which I had previously done and had great success with. I found though that I wasn’t losing weight and inches as fast as I had hoped for.
In January 2015, Fizzique offered Mission Slimpossible which included boot camp 2-3 times a week and a meal plan provided by Melissa Seguin – Holistic Nutrition and Registered Massage Therapy.

Boot Camp
Part of my success was in the January session I attended boot camp 3 times a week every week. I made sure to put it in my calendar as an appointment. If I was unable to make a class I made sure to attend a make-up class. We also started to use free weights in our workouts which I felt made a big difference in sculpting my body. I made sure I pushed myself each class and eventually I was able to increase the weights from 8lbs to 10lbs. Throughout the weeks I also made some great friends and we had fun during each workout talking and laughing.

Meal Plan
The meal plan included healthy whole foods and super foods which were known to aid in weight loss. Going into the program I was scared that the food would taste horrible and that I would be hungry. It actually ended up being the complete opposite. The food was actually good and I was never hungry. My husband and my baby also loved the food. The only tough part was finding the time to make all the meals. What I found helped me succeed with the meal plan was preparing as much as I could the night before. I also made large batches of some meals to use for leftovers or freeze for days when I was in a rush.
Before the program I was constantly tired and felt I had no energy. I had gone to my doctor and had blood work done, but everything was okay according to my doctor. During Mission Slimpossible, I started to feel better. I was no longer tired and I had way more energy.

Even though the program is over I am continuing with the meal plan and I am working out at home until the next session of boot camp starts up. I have incorporated healthy eating and exercise into my daily routine and I am very happy with the results!

We’re 1 day away from 2014 and the #1 resolution always seems to be fitness…..get in better shape.  The gyms are packed and then taper off around March break.  Why does this happen?  Because people set unrealistic goals for themselves; going everyday for the first bit and then they find excuses that get in the way of fitting in their workout thus resulting in a no-show as we near March break.  Does this sound like you?  Then you NEED to use this tool to help set yourself up for success and not failure with your workout routine.

Effective goal setting is an essential component of a physical activity and sedentary behavior prescription.  SMART goals are:

Specific.  Well-defined clear actions.

Measurable.  Objective and quantifiable so both the client and trainer know when they’ve been achieved.

Actionable.  Based on things the client will do (ie. Not an outcome).

Relevant.  They must be important and meaningful to the client.  Getting to success is motivating in itself.

Timed.  Without a set deadline, there is no sense of urgency.

Establishing goals that are realistic and attainable will guide you to early successes to build on over time.

Working with a certified personal trainer helps too so contact me today to set you up with a program tailored to your goals so that you don’t follow this trend (one that actually isn’t a good trend to follow).

Have a Happy and Healthy 2014 and I hope you have many successes achieving your goals.
