The Answers You Need
Will weight lifting make me bulky?
No. Genetics plays a massive role in how our bodies react to weight lifting. By lifting you will get STRONGER, but if you are wondering whether you'll end up looking like a bodybuilder, you have to be taking supplements and eating a diet to promote muscle growth.
My programs are aimed at strengthening the body, and as we age into our 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond, muscular strength and skeletal strength are vital to aging properly, disease prevention, and skeletal and postural distortions like osteoporosis.
Will weight lifting help with weight loss?
Yes. By lifting weights, with the proper frequency my program offers, the body will become better at expending energy. By promoting muscle growth it will help you burn fat. As long as your nutrition is in check.
To lose weight you have to put your body into a caloric deficit, but through nutrition you can maintain muscle, gain strength (NOT BULK), all while burning fat and losing inches.
What kind of diet plan is recommended?
I customize nutrition plans for 1-on-1 coaching. During the weeks of the program, I will do nutrition and workout check ins with clients.
My go-to diet plan is "Flexible Dieting." It allows for all your favorite foods to be consumed, but in moderation. As long as if fits into your diet plan, no food is off limits. Gaining nutritional freedom will help create a lifelong healthy lifestyle.
Within the program, I will have an example of some good go-to meals and offer some nutrition hacks and grocery shopping tips. I will also offer recommended supplements that I like to use.
Do I need a gym membership?
For the main flagship program having a gym membership will be beneficial. But there is a 4 week long at-home total body shredder you can purchase to kickstart your health routine.
Building consistency will lead to long term results.
How long did it take you to lose weight?
I started on my fitness journey in February 2014, and by December 2014 I had lost 70 pounds.
On average I lost 8 pounds per month. I have maintained my weight loss through my personal fitness philosophy for 3+ years and counting.
As my body changed, it helped change how my mind processed the death of my husband, and it made me mentally stronger to push forward through widowhood.
