30 Day Weight Loss Challenge- Online
Below are the amazing results from our 30-day weight loss challenge in August. I am proud of each and every one of them. It was a challenge with great rewards. I trained each group online twice a week for 50 minutes. That was the constant element in each group.
The variables were in the food plan. In Group A, they followed my detailed food plan for the month. The cost was extra but the food plan was ready and all the clients had to do was plan, cook and eat accordingly. Everyone maintained a food journal, which I closely monitored. In Group B, they had a simple list of foods to choose from and a basic food plan. They had to determine what foods to eat from the list. I only asked them to write a food journal if they were confused or unsure of the program. Group C only followed my training and maintained their current food plan.
Check out the results:
Group A: Female Group A: Male
Lost 15.6 lbs Lost 16.4 lbs
2 “ at waist 3” at waist
2 ¾ “ at hips 1¾ “ at hips
2 ½ at chest 1” at chest
1 ½ -13/4 at arms 1 3/8” at arms
1 ¼ at thighs ½ to ¼” at thighs
Group B: Female Group B: Male
Lost 10 lbs Lost 20lbs
1 ½ “ at waist 3” at waist
2 ¼ at hips 2 ½ “ at hips
1 ¼ “ at chest 3” at chest
1 ¼ at arms 1 to ½ “ at arms
Thighs remained the same 1” at thighs
Group C: Female Group C: Female
Lost 3 lbs Measurements to come!
2 “at high waist Re-scheduled due to family matter
6 “ at waist
5 “ at hips
2 “ at chest
2 “ at arms
¼” at thighs
In 30 days, I asked them to be realistic and accept this challenge. It wasn’t going to be easy as processed foods, sugar and sugar substitutes; alcohol and soda beverages were going to be eliminated. That was the tough part of the challenge.
Online training was the easy part. Clients worked out in the convenience of their home. All you needed was space to workout, internet connection for Skype and a computer, laptop or iPad. We scheduled all the sessions before the program started so the clients were focused and had a plan for the fitness goals. Each client determined his or her personal and fitness goal. For example, one client wanted to improve quality of life and flexibility. Another client wanted to lose weight in the waist area. The training programs were focused on each of their fitness goals. The results are great! I am pleased and clients are happy. This training was so simple and easy. Everyone had success with on line training.
What fun would this 30-day challenge be if you didn’t reward yourself? Right? Before the program started, I asked every one to write down a reward. One client bought a new swimsuit; another bought a new workout outfit. All fun and no play makes for a boring life. Success comes with taking a few risks and being out of your comfort level.
Thank you everyone who participated in the first All About You.. 30 Day Weightloss Challenge. I am proud of each and everyone of you. The hard work paid off! Julie B
Starting off March with 66 Flights!
Way to Go- All About You.. 2013 Team
Sandy, Carrie, Keith, John, Fran, Kim, Eve and Heidi
Thank you everyone who donated to MS and for supported my team as week climbed to the top of 30 Rock on Sunday March 3rd, 2013. It was a great time and we raised almost 9K. I am so proud of Sandy who raised more than $3K. My Co-Captain was the fastest and improved her time from last year. Yay! My new climbers were strong and successful. Yay!! Everyone made it to the top but weather was chilly so we quickly returned to the bottom to celebrate. Yipee Yay!
Moments before we start climbing the stairs, I was asked about the orange ribbons again. I kindly explained the "cure" shape and I made these in orange for it’s the color that represents MS. She proceeds to tell me that she has had MS for 30 plus years and appreciates all the hard work we are doing today. Quickly I responded with gratitude and gave her one of my ribbons to wear. She kindly thanked me with soft tears in her eyes. (Picture to the left) My team watched me and was more than ready to conquer 66 flights.
I am proud of everyone and what we accomplished. You couldn’t have done it with out each and every one of you. And yes, that is including Heidi who came to cheer for us, take pictures and hold our goodies. Thank you teammates and donors for your support and for making this event successful. - Julie

together.It was a slight battle
at the 30th but Zuleika go her second wind by the 43rd

again.It wasn’t easy but Zuleika
was determined to reach the top.I
was there to support and encourage her and the rest of the team.I took her arm and hand while we moved slowly
and steadily.Once we saw the
light and felt the breeze, nothing was going to stop us now.I am so proud of Zuleika.She did it!Every one of our teammates was at the top waiting for us!!!

Success Story from 2010
I have to share this story with everyone! I am soo excited and proud of Stephanie!
This fall I had the pleasure of meeting Stephanie at Club H where I started to teach a Monday morning Kick It class. Stephanie informed me that she was going to do 100 day challenge which was programmed by Club H private trainer, Rachel. Luckily Stephanie voiced her interest in my class which allowed my class to be a part of her program. Weekly, I watched Stephanie's progress and continued to encourage her. And she met her goal early!!!! Stephanie loss a total of 30lbs and 11% body fat! Way to go Stephanie!!! You look amazing!
I asked Stephanie, "How does it feel to lose this weight and what's your fitness goal for 2011?"
Stephanie replied: "After losing the 30 pounds I felt so healthy and more confident in myself. When I look in the mirror I still say wow that's me I am proud of myself for this accomplishment.
My goals for 2011 is continue to eat healthy and to lose more weight as well as help my friends who are looking to lose weight."
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your fitness program. You worked hard in class and it shows!
Here's a picture of Stephanie's weight loss.
