Cue our JUMPSTART 2019 program, a 6-Week Fitness and Nutrition Challenge designed to get you in better shape with a focus on nutrition. Don’t worry…we will be there every step of the way to hold you accountable.

What you should expect:

  • A decrease in your body fat percentage
  • Increase in lean muscle tissue (making your body look more sculpted)
  • Increased metabolism (to help you burn more fat all day long)
  • Increased sense of well-being (it sure feels great to be on top of life)
  • An abundance of energy (keep you going all day long)
  • Lower bad and increased good cholesterol levels*
  • Decreased risk of heart disease (live much longer overall)*
  • And most important of all...increased self-confidence

Not to mention the other benefits that come from being in great shape and feeling good about yourself...

* Based on regular exercise and a healthy diet. We make no claims otherwise.

It's about fitness, not weight loss.

Reaching your fitness goals and maintaining them permanently will take a significant amount of effort and dedication on your part.

More than just a scale

Weight, body composition and circumference measurements are only a few of the many tools used to gather evidence of your progress. They should not, however, be thought of as the only way to measure success. There are several methods for measuring your progress. Our approach uses simple strategies to help keep you focused but at the same time – avoiding frustration.


Find evidence by taking a trip to your very own closet. Try on a pair of jeans before and after the fitness challenge. Make sure to choose a pair that you aspire to fit into again. Take note on the fit at the waist, butt and thighs. In 6-weeks, your body will transform by reducing the fat with lean muscle.

Body measurements

Other numerical signs of progress. Watch the measurements of your waist, arms, neck and hips change. If you are not losing pounds, are losing inches all over your body as your figure slims down and tones up.

Other numerical indicators include a reduction of blood pressure or cholesterol, BMI, and body fat percentage.

Energy levels

Monitor how eating supportively and regular exercise affects your energy levels. Not only will you be able to work out for longer intervals of time, but daily movements and chores will also become easier. Whether cutting the grass or simply walking up the stairs, these behaviors will come effortlessly.


Most importantly, be conscious of how you feel emotionally. You work hard to reach your goals. Hopefully, the hard work will come with a boost in self-esteem, confidence, and happiness.

Are you beginning to feel more comfortable in your own body? What do you hear others saying to you? What are you saying to yourself?

Scale weight...if you must

Lastly, we have scale weight. See how low on the scale of importance this is? While it is a factor in seeing results it’s definitely not as important as the top 4 factors in how we measure results.

Scale weight is based on a combination of many things like water, food, bowel movements and that time of the month. While it can show us one aspect of seeing results it definitely is not the main factor.
