Hello sweet friends! This is a very important email for TransFit in many ways, I hope you will read it and join us in praying over the exciting doors the Lord is opening for us!
My family, friends and I have been praying over the decision to expand and see where God takes the TransFit ministry. Our minds have been blown away by His faithfulness and blessings and I am SO excited to announce that TransFit will be moving to a new location! If all goes as scheduled (it will be like extreme studio makeover) starting next week, January 11th 2016, TransFit will be holding sessions at 1225 S. Milledge Avenue Terrace Level. Right in the heart of 5 Points, the new TransFit studio will be at the bottom of the building where the Pine restaurant is located (Half Moon Outfitters and the Hub once occupied this space)! The new studio has plenty of parking right in front of the entrance! The new TransFit studio will provide more space for you and other amazing TransFit clients to continue to work hard and achieve your health and fitness goals and transform your body, mind, and spirit. The studio will be a Personal Training Studio for women to thrive!
The new TransFit Studio will also allow our new TransFit Team to work together towards helping YOU be the best you can be in the New Year!
Sessions this week will remain in my home studio Tuesday- Friday. If all goes as planned sessions in the new studio will start Monday, January 11th.
With the upcoming expansions, the TransFit team is expanding as well and I would love to introduce you to some new faces you will be seeing more of in the coming weeks. Please meet the new TransFit Team! I am so excited to see how the Lord uses each of their incredible gifts and talents!
Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certified Coach
TransFit became a part of my life as soon as Caroline opened her doors! When I first approached her, I was in my late 20s and had two children at the time and zero energy to take care of them or my husband. I told Caroline I wanted to learn how to eat better and add exercise to my everyday routine. In just six short weeks, I could see muscles forming on my body, and I had more energy. I remind Caroline often that she changed my life and her daily inspiration challenges me to continue to be my best.
Exercise and nutrition have become passions of mine. I’ve learned that my fitness goals are a lot easier to reach when paired with good nutrition. I have known for awhile that God wanted to use me in a way to encourage other women — what better way than nutrition — to teach women how we can honor God by fueling our bodies with wholesome foods! This way, we can be better wives, mothers, friends, employees and so on!
My husband, Justin, and I have three kids — Kara, Lane and Cami. I enjoy running on days when I’m not strength training with Caroline. I am excited to help clients with Nutrition Consulting to reach their whole body health goals!
I am currently a personal trainer and fitness instructor with a passion for helping others find and maintain healthy lifestyle habits. I believe that true health includes spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being. My heart's desire is to use fitness as a tool to help women learn about how treasured they are. I want to teach them how to move safely, but more importantly help them see their infinite worth and security in Christ. Nothing compares to knowing and being known by our Creator. I hope to be an instrument that the LORD uses to help others get a glimpse of how loved they are. Love changes everything. It changes how we view ourselves and others. It changes how we care for ourselves too. I hope to use love and encouragement to inspire women to live freely in who they were created to be!
Hi! I'm Shelley Tanner and I'm so excited to be joining the TransFit team! Caroline has been a huge inspiration to me, and to be able to work with her is encouraging and challenging in all good ways! After graduating from UGA with a degree in Health Promotions and Behavior, I worked as a public health educator for the Clarke County Health Department and Teen Matters for a few years before going to nursing school. I graduated from Emory University School of Nursing and became a Registered Nurse. As an RN, I worked in the emergency room and an outpatient surgery center before becoming a mom and deciding to stay home with my babies for a little while. Now I get most of my nursing hours volunteering at Mercy Health Center as often as possible. I also love traveling and have a passion for mission work. One of my favorite places is Uganda, Africa, where Kupendwa Ministries is located. We adopted our third child in July 2014, and life has been quite difficult and stressful for me since then. Exercise has been a great stress reliever, comfort, and balancer for me as I have dealt with various situations and emotions. I'm currently finishing my personal trainer certification through the American College of Sports Medicine and working with Caroline to train clients. I am excited to help clients by personal training to reach their whole body health goals!
Hello! My name is Courtney Lovingood and I am a 3rd year Accounting major at the University of Georgia. In addition to working at TransFit, I also am a leader at Watkinsville First Baptist Church and a leader of Delight Ministries at the University of Georgia. Ever since I was young, I have struggled with self-image issues and before coming to college didn’t fully have a grasp on how to live my healthiest life. Since coming to college I have developed a passion for fitness and nutrition and want to help other women change their lifestyles as well. I want to show women that this isn’t a diet, this is a new way of living that glorifies God and honors your body the way it was meant to be honored. I am so passionate about ministry as a whole and about discipleship. I can't wait to see the relationships that come from this ministry, and can't wait to watch the complete transformations that take place!! I know the journey to health isn't easy, but it has absolutely changed my life for the better and I want to continue to learn more and help others see just how great and God honoring it is.
I love to write when I have time and absolutely love to cook and bake. My go-to healthy food is an omelet and I love box jumps (even though I can’t jump very high! Pushing for progress not perfection!) I so look forward to meeting and working with all of you and seeing you make changes that will better your life body, mind and spirit!
I'm a junior Marketing major at the University of Georgia. I have a heart for the Lord, cooking, and people! I was blessed with an opportunity to join the TransFit team starting as a marketing intern then working my way up. My passion lies with nutrition and fitness but my career lies with marketing. I wanted to find a way to couple those both to make a positive impact on people, which is what I am doing here at TransFit!
I am so excited to help promote and market the amazing ministry of TransFit. What we strive to do each day is to help women live a life transformed through their bodies, minds, and spirits.
We would love it if you would join us in praying over this new space and staff. God is good and He deserves every ounce of praise for this huge step!
Finally, DON'T FORGET this is the last week of Holiday Extravaganza! Finish strong and stop in sometime this week Tuesday-Friday to weigh in and hopefully get your money back! Maybe even compete for first prize!! Good luck to all and let's celebrate an incredible holiday season and look forward to 2016 being our healthiest year yet!
Thank you all for your continued support of TransFit. I can't wait to continue to serve you all and watch the Lord grow this community. Thankful to take this journey with each and every one of you - you all feed my spirit each and every day!
