Mom of the Month—How One Mom Took Control

By March 26, 2018 May 7th, 2018 No Comments

In January Active Moms’ Club kicked-off our second 60-Days of YOU! Fitness & Nutrition program. The goal of the program— to help moms focus on their own self-care. One of our newest members, Lauren, made an incredible transformation to her body, while increasing her energy, strength and confidence.

Lauren first came to AMC last year for our Postnatal Recovery Class. She was eager to safely return to exercise and to rebuild her strength post baby. As every mom knows the first year of motherhood is a big transition. Lauren’s son turned one on December 24 and was struggling to find her fitness groove. “I wanted to get more energy, get back into the routine of regular exercise, and fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes”. When 60-Days of YOU! Fitness & Nutrition program came around in January, she knew the time was right to make a change!

AMC’s 60-Days of YOU! program is eight weeks of fitness and nutrition guidance that has helps take the guesswork out of slimming down, getting fit and establishing a healthy relationship with food and exercise. All 21 of our moms who participated in our winter program reaped the benefits of having two personal coaches to help them create a map to new healthy habits and a strategy to make them stick.

I loved 60DOY! I achieved my goal of fitting into my pre-pregnancy clothing, losing weight, and returning to my regular exercise routine. I also experienced some unexpected results that were amazing! Having a child who is not a good sleeper, I used to be exhausted and low energy every day. Now I wake up every day feeling well rested, energetic, happy, and cheerful. I also no longer need to take my allergy medication, which I have taken daily for years! Now that the 60 days are over, I like that I have a home program for nutrition and exercise that I can fit into my daily routine. I love the idea that I can mindfully eat what I want and return to the plan to maintain my weight, nutrition, and exercise routine.”

Lauren lost 10 POUNDS during the 60-day program!

More noticeable, she lost FOUR inches around her hips allowing her to fit back into pre-pregnancy clothes with ease. Our abdomen and hips in particular, show if an individual is estrogen-dominant. Estrogen dominance leads to weight and/or fat gain, thyroid dysfunction, mood swings, sluggish metabolism, fatigue, trouble sleeping/insomnia and many other symptoms…(sound familiar to you?). As moms, we have raging hormones! Moms are learning to rebalance our hormonal environment through nutrition—and AMC’s high-intensity strength training workouts are the perfect pair to increase growth hormones and burn fat. Lauren’s dedication to her fitness and nutrition continues the shift in her hormonal environment, and the rewards are priceless!

I see more muscle definition and feel strong and healthy. I like the variation and pace of Fit & Fab Small Group Training sessions. I felt like I got a great workout without feeling miserable throughout it. It left me feeling motivated to exercise at home and come back every week. I really like using kettlebells, they make me feel very strong.

I’m most proud that I took control of my diet and exercise to make a change in how I look and feel. Of course, I’m very proud of losing weight and feeling comfortable in my clothes!

Overall, I couldn’t be happier with the 60-Days of YOU! experience and results. I highly recommend AMC to anyone.”

Lauren’s journey is impressive. She demonstrates that determination and dedication will pay off.
