The Missing Piece | Community

For years I had tried to do the whole “fitness thing” on my own. I’d make a little progress and then fall backward. Or worse, I’d end up going off the deep end with my eating or exercise and just let it get way out of control – one way or another.

When my daughter came along, though, I knew something had to change, and I researched and researched until I found something that would make it different. That’s when I got started with the 21 Day Fix, as most of you know. And while I attribute my weight loss and change and nutrition and fitness to the Fix, I couldn’t have done it without the missing piece – the community.

When I got started and really dug in with my fitness journey, I also committed to being a part of something that was bigger than me, something that supported and encouraged me, and something that provided me with everything I needed to be successful – a fit family and the community I needed to really stick with it.

Since realizing what a difference this community made for me, I wanted to be able to provide that to YOU on a variety of different levels. Now, I still run my traditional challenge groups, and that is still where I provide the most specific support. However, I am opening up a new opportunity for anyone who is looking to make a healthy change but isn’t quite ready to commit to a challenge group yet.
