First Place- Catherine Warner

Catherine has lost over 10% of her body weight, has lost 10% body fat and has gained such confidence! When we see Catherine now in the studio she has a radiant glow of living transformed. The transformation journey is not a quick fix, but yes, making healthy habits and small changes daily do lead to HUGE results!  Changing your mind (Romans 12:2) to believe that you can accomplish anything you put your mind to- is what living transformed is all about! Congrats Cat! We are so proud of you and are excited to help you reach your next set of goals for 2017! 

As a wife and mother of 3 boys, I have continually put my needs and schedule secondary to my family's, but that all changed 10 months ago. My journey with TransFit began in February 2016 when I was inspired by my friend Amy O'Neill's amazing transformation. At the time I was recovering from my 4th major surgery in 3 years and physical therapy was my only form of exercise. Highly motivated, I joined Transfit and had a 1 on 1 with Shelley Tanner. I began with Transformer classes 2 times a week during the month of March.  By May, I joined unlimited and began going 4-5 times per week. Today, I continue to workout 4-5 times per week at TransFit participating in Small Groups, Transformer Classes and Yoga. 

During my 10 Months at TransFit, I have been encouraged and inspired by Caroline, Katie, Shelley, Melynda and Lisa as well as all the amazing women I workout with everyday!  The cool down is my favorite part of the workout because it helps me remain focused on my goals taking them one hour, one day at a time. I have been consistent with classes from the beginning, but have struggled with my cardio and nutrition goals. This past fall, I joined the TransFit Bible Study and found the support, encouragement and tools I need to help me reach those goals as well. With the added excitement of "Holiday Extravaganza," I was motivated to eat clean and lean and lost more than I thought possible (It's amazing what happens when you drink the water and eat TransFit-approved!). I still have a long way to go, but know with the support and encouragement of my TransFit family, I can reach the goals I have set for 2017. Thank you to all of my friends for your support and encouragement. We are all on a journey together and we are not alone! Blessings for an amazing 2017 to you all!!!

Family : Corky, Tommy (16), Will (13), and Ben (8)

Favorite Dinner:  Wilted spinach and salmon or other wild caught fish

Favorite Lunch: "Romaine Lettuce boats" with grilled chicken and veggies with Balsamic glaze

Favorite snack:  Turkey rolls or Almond Butter

Tip:  I buy Justin's individual packets of almond butter to control my portions! 


Well done to all contestants! We are so incredibly proud of everyone who competed! Remember that the January Jump Start can still be purchased! We would love to have you join us in our journey towards a healthy lifestyle this year! 

Blessings,

Set Goals and Finish December Strong!

Happy Friday friends! 

Can you believe December is already here? It seems like this year has flown by! However we still have one month left- let's strive to make it our best month yet! 

Here at TransFit we have a lot of exciting things going on in December! 

First, the Holiday Extravaganza is underway!! For those of you who joined in- keep up the great work! We have heard some awesome stories of discipline at holiday events and diligence in working out! GREAT job! Even if you weren't able to join the contest, join us in spirit and make new goals that you can and will achieve this month! Here is a December calendar full of challenges to help you make and achieve short term goals this month and press on through the end of the year! Goals are so important and help us strive to get to the place in our lives where we long to be! Friends, it is NEVER too late to make a new goal! Push yourself in this last month and finish 2015 out strong! Like our December theme you have to truly believe you can do it! 

While your schedule gets busier and busier and you are tempted to put your health and fitness goals- remember why you have started this journey! You long to be healthier in your mind, body and spirit. While I know you may struggle more during this season to get sessions in or make it to the gym, here is a High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workout that you can do anywhere (garage, bedroom, outside, etc)!! It will get your heart rate pumping and help you to continue to torch calories long after you've finished! To make the most of your time, give it your absolute best for the 15-20 minutes it takes and then feel great about the workout you got in among all of the tasks you have for the day! It can be easily printed out and taken with you wherever you go! 

 

This HIIT workout, along with other full-body workouts can be found in the 14 Day Recharge eBook! TransFit was so excited to release our first ever eBook on Black Friday and you can get it TODAY still at a discounted price! Today is the day to begin really recharging your fitness- especially right before Christmas! If you start today you will be finished just in time to be feeling your best mind , body and spirit as you go into the holiday week! You can purchase the eBook for the discounted price here.

Holiday Extravaganza Countdown & 3 Healthy Thanksgiving Recipes!

Sweet friends! We are getting so close to the start of our Holiday Extravaganza Challenge! Can you believe it?? If you haven't yet- email me to set up a weigh-in appointment and join in on the party!! Email me at transfitathens@gmail.com.

If you are unsure- check out the results from last year here! AMAZING! Collectively, the participants lost 116 pounds!!!  To put that in perspective, 116 pounds of fat equates to roughly 738 Big Macs, 2,900 cans of Coke, or 3,867 bananas! Check out the winner from last year! Please read her story in the above link. 

First prize wins the cash in the bucket!!! 2nd prize will be an entire outfit donated by Lulu Lemon Athens that you can pick out! 3rd & 4th prize will be some awesome gift baskets with donated items from local businesses! Super great prizes!! But the best prize - that you are feeling amazing January 1st 2016! 

I am hearing so many great stories from you about the success you have had with your Food Journal Challenge this week which is GREAT practice for holding yourself accountable as you prepare for the holidays! You have a few days left- keep up the great work and email us photos of your journal (written or MyFitnessPal), we would LOVE to encourage you and praise you for your hard work! 

As we look ahead to next week starting the challenge, we must start to think about the holiday season and what all it is going to hold. If you are like me, you've already begun to think about all the dishes you will have to prepare, events you will be going to and the full (yet wonderful!) schedule the next few weeks hold. Amidst all of this we have to stay focused on our goals and be diligent even through the holidays! Our client spotlight Tina Carpenter said in her article "Just live, learn and laugh along the way…and enjoy your life as you strive each day to be your best. If you are misguided or if you make mistakes, shake it off and get back on your bath to being the best you can be!" That is the mindset I encourage us all to have this season! There will be times when we will have a treat that maybe we didn't plan for or a day when we will miss a workout- BUT what is important is that you do not allow that to completely take your eyes off of your goals and your progress. If you put that small slip behind you but get right back on track, you will find that you are even better than before!! Patience and perseverance will be the name of the game!!
