Chelsea is a perfect example of a myth buster...women do not get bulky from lifting!!! She looks amazing at 45!!!! #girlswholift #fitover40 #beautyandthebeastmode #trainerforwomen #livelovelift #movenourishsparkle #itpaysoff #virtutaltrainer #repost @chelseahandler Today is my trainer’s benbrunos birthday. I met him 6 years ago and immediately thought—I hate weight training. I was convinced I would only get bigger and bulkier. I hated working out and would cancel more often than I showed up. Then one day, something clicked and I started to see the strength my body was gaining and the fierceness that came with getting your body grit to match your mental grit. I’m 45 years old and finally have the body I’ve been trying to get since I was 25. ... See MoreSee Less

Ruth was living a life familiar to many moms. She wasn’t properly taking care of herself. With our program she was able to work toward being a healthy mom, while still caring for her family. Ruth says:"I have always been overweight. When I got married, my husband and I would try to eat healthy, and we did pretty good. We would eat our fruits and veggies, didn't keep junk food in the house... but despite my exercise and attempts at healthy eating, nothing made a difference. After a couple of pregnancies, it only got worse. I finally decided I wanted to be a healthy mom...and now I've lost over 60 pounds, and I am 45 pounds lighter than when I got married..." ...

Check out Ron and Tina! They are embracing their health as a journey and enjoying the victories along the way. Ron shares:"Possibility exists for anyone. There is no secret formula, program, drops you put on food, counting points, wraps, cheat days, eating like a Neanderthal, living on shakes, or whatever else is out there. It's all about waking everyday and making choices about one's health. Last year we hit rock bottom with our health and excess weight. We were both clinically diagnosed at being obese. It was either change our lifestyle choices (primarily eating) or suffer the consequences. Diabetes runs on both sides of my family. I was on blood pressure meds for three years. Tina has rheumatoid arthritis and excess weight is painful for her hips and joints. Today, at the age of 64, a resting pulse of 38, a blood pressure average of 118/78, and a BMI of 20, I did a 6-mile run in the Arizona desert under a blue sky and 75 degrees at less than 8 minutes per mile. A year ago there is no way I could have done that. The God of the second chance came through for us again. This time it was all about our health and we're not going to blow it. God has a plan for us and it has nothing to do with numbers on a scale and everything to do with honoring Him in what He has planned for us. Our new health status is a means to an end. Our story is not yet finished."Are you living the life you are meant to live? ... See MoreSee Less

Jason is an incredible inspiration. He has discovered health and is living for what matters most to him! Here is his story:"Over the last several months I have been on an incredible journey to reclaim my health! It really began in the summer of 2014. I had a wake up call that included a tumor and the potential for the dreaded "C" word. (Cancer) Thankfully it turned out there was no cancer. It did awaken me to the need to make positive and intentional changes to my lifestyle. After searching for several months, I discovered a total health program that really worked for me. Since mid October 2014 I have lost over 60 lbs! It is an amazing feeling to help coach my son’s wrestling team without being out of breath. I know there are many people in the same boat as I was and I really have a desire to lend a helping hand in helping them rediscover what health means for a lifetime!" ... See MoreSee Less

This story brings me so much hope and inspiration! Our country's childhood obesity epidemic is devastating! This generation will be the first to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents...but we can change that!! I am so proud to share this story. This beautiful 14 year old girl worked closely with our registered dieticians to develop a customized plan that has assisted McKenna on her health journey. Tiffany is so thankful to have discovered our program. She is now able to assist her daughter to maintain a healthy weight and most importantly given her a gift to last a lifetime.... education on how to maintain that healthy lifestyle, which will go on to assist her throughout her adult life. Their beautiful smiles say it all! Our teen program teaches proper nutrition and the Habits of Health. We focus on awareness....(NOT DIET).. I am so excited to be a part of this health revolution.Who do you know who needs assistance? ... See MoreSee Less

Matt and his wife, Chelsey, are such an inspiration!! Here is their story:“So I was extremely overweight throughout the entirety of my life. I never really thought I had image issues with myself but I was always angry with myself when I couldn't do something that someone else could. I always wanted to be stronger, faster, more flexible, etc. I was always afraid of failing. I always got the compliment "Wow he is fast, for his size", or "He sure is nimble, for his size". See a pattern?So in 2010 when Chelsey started this "diet", or at least what I then considered a diet, I thought nothing of it I more than likely just rolled my eyes and said "you can do whatever you want honey." Ha ha little did I know in that year she would lose 116 lbs., and more to my shock she wasn't sick anymore! I was dumbfounded and my mom liked her results so much she wanted to try it and lost 70 lbs. Now I'm sitting there saying to myself "Just try it!". You have already started to lose weight simply because Chelsey was cooking healthier meals so why not? The last time I remember looking at a scale at the doctor’s office I was well into 345 lbs. In just over 14 months I hit my goal of 175 lbs. and have maintained a +10/-10 lbs. range for over 6 months! I no longer take medication for my chronic heartburn and the thyroid condition my doctor said I needed to be medicated for entirely vanished! My body is actually able to heal itself like it was designed to do in the first place. I can’t even begin to tell you how much better our lives are these days!"What a joy to see their shift toward health!! ... See MoreSee Less

Doesn’t confidence look great on Margie?! But nothing compares to how it feels! Margie says:“One of the best things about losing weight and getting healthy? Pictures! Pictures with my husband, pictures with my kids! I'm actually IN them and not behind the lens anymore. I am no longer terrified that someone would "tag" me in a terrible picture on Facebook or anywhere else. It's exciting to step out from behind the camera and feel free again. I've lost 35 pounds, but I have gained a new life of making memories with my family!”Are you being held back by fear? It’s time to overcome that fear and transform into the person you long to be. ...

I just love this!! Margaret learned the habits of health and has taken control of her health as a result!“I started dieting after gaining 72 pounds with my first child. For the next 30 years I think I tried every diet out there. Losing weight was never the problem, keeping it off was. However, something drastic happened when I turned 50. No matter what I did I couldn't lose weight. This went on for an entire year. I was so frustrated and angry and about to give up when I heard about this program through a doctor who had lost over 100 pounds himself. When I got started on it I couldn't believe how easy this program was to do and with the help of my health coach 35 pounds just melted off my body. The best part, I finally learned the healthy habits necessary to maintain my weight!"Are you going to be next?! ... See MoreSee Less

Lynne is looking forward to the future as a happier, healthier individual. Here is her story."Our story is short and simple - we were fat! A medical wake up call started us on the search for health only to be met with frustration, starvation and failure. Then fate stepped in! I started the program knowing full well it wouldn't work for me - why would it - nothing else ever had. But I had faith in my Health Coach and she had faith in me. Now almost a year later we've lost over 145 pounds. Within 6 weeks, as a result of weight loss my doctor lowered 4 medications! I AM HAPPY!! I AM A NEW PERSON! And I'm looking forward to spending many more years of health and happiness with my family and grandchildren!"This is what it looks and feels like when you take control of your health! Where are you going to put your energy today in order to see results in the future? ... See MoreSee Less

OBESITY is the single most important "chronic" factor & age is the single biggest factor determining admissions.For months, scientists have been poring over data about cases and deaths to understand why it is that COVID-19 manifests itself in different ways around the globe, with certain factors such as the age of the population repeatedly popping up as among the most significant determinants.The chronic condition with the strongest association with critical illness was obesity, with a substantially higher odds ratio than any cardiovascular or pulmonary disease," write lead author Christopher M. Petrilli of the NYU Grossman School and colleagues in a paper.Reference: ZDNet.

Enjoy this wonderful story of a couples lives transformed by the program I coach! Here is John's story in his own words:"January 18, 2014 I made a choice to lose weight and to attempt to restore my health. When looking at God’s creation it was obvious I had not done a good job of keeping what He had created in Optimal Health™. Like most who are overweight, I had set goals that focused somewhat on health issues, but in the back of my mind was the fact that weight loss was what I had hoped to achieve. Not a bad goal, but a new focus would unfold shortly after the encouragement from our health coaches. Instead of just wanting to lose weight, I now wanted a healthy lifestyle. My wife, who did not have the severe overweight problem as me, joined me in the journey about 5 month into the program. Together we have lost 135 pounds and our health has improved beyond our doctors imagination. We are now living more active lives and enjoying our walk as we help others to Optimal Health™." ...
