Recipes: Easy Veggie Skillet

“C’mon, eat your veggies! Bottoms up!”

A Little Fit Motivation From Coach Melissa…

Coach Melissa here, the motivational coach you never knew you needed!

I’ve hijacked the Fit Body Boot Camp blog because I figured I could offer some inspiration to a few of you future boot campers out there…

See, I used to be overweight. I was far from fit. My self-esteem was at an all-time low. It hurt to look at myself in the mirror. I felt lost and hopeless.

Then I saw a Fit Body Boot Camp ad online one day. What did I have to lose? I decided to check it out…

The rest is history. I fell in love with their quick HIIT style workouts and lost a bunch of weight in the first few months. I even learned how to keep that weight off for the long haul…

So what did the trick for me?

Once I got on top of my mentality, I was able to conquer fitness every single day. Mentality is the biggest part of working out. You can’t get down on yourself!

Let’s talk through some of the most common objections and excuses people make when fitness gets the better of them. Trust me, the power of perspective can turn these doubts into opportunities for you.

A Beginner’s Guide to Fit Body’s Workout Equipment

That moment.

That moment when you walk into a gym. You survey the room and see a bunch of machines that look like robots; a rack of weights that looks intimidating; and bands, balls, and ropes that look like they don’t even belong inside a gym…

The more you look around the room, the less it looks like the place to get fit and the more it looks like a sweaty spaceship.

Today’s blog will answer one question for you: how do I use that darn workout equipment?

While our workouts require different pieces of equipment, we try not to pack our gyms with any hard-to-use products, machines, or treadmills.

Diet Like a Celebrity

Why do movie stars get paid millions and millions of dollars?

They convince us that, for just a moment in time, we’re actually in another world. Maybe you’re stuck in the hustle and bustle of New York City, maybe you’re a knight in medieval times, or maybe you’re the only human alive in a zombie apocalypse.

Actors go to great lengths to prepare for the roles they play. Let’s say their next role is as a superhero. Part of their preparation would include getting in tip-top shape with a healthy diet and lifestyle, because who would believe in a superhero’s power to save the world when they aren’t even in shape?

What if I told you that you could harness that same level of dedication to get fit too?

You can, and after this blog I know you will!

You’re the star, and your next role is the healthy and happy new “you”! Let’s get you “fit” for the role with a couple of tips celebrities, like your favorite movie stars, use to get toned.
