What is the #1 New Years Resolution made in America??? Yup! It’s lose weight, get in shape, workout, eat better…. If you are like me, you’ve made that claim many, many times….
I’m sure you have seen by now that we are health and fitness coaches. That may seem odd to some of you. I’m sure there are some of you who don’t automatically think “Mark and Kathleen” when someone mentions a fitness coach. You probably think of the trainers from Biggest Loser or Shaun T. Well, they are trainers. We are coaches.
We know that we don’t have awesome abs and mounds of muscle. We realize that we have a long way to go to reach our own heath and fitness goals. BUT, what we do have are hearts that long to help see people succeed. We have goals to, not scare and scream you into shape, but to lead by example. Maybe you’ve noticed our progress…. As of last time we measured, Kathleen has lost more than 13 total inches. Mark has lost over 8 inches. That was at the one month point into our journey…. I don’t want to sound cocky, but I think we are doing something right. 🙂
Maybe you are like we used to be and you say, “i’ll start working out tomorrow….. or next week…. or in January.” Or you think, “i can do it on my own, why do I need a coach?” Maybe you spend so much time helping everyone around you (which is not a bad thing at all), but you leave YOUR health and YOUR happiness in the background. That was us. Not only caring for our 7 kids, our special needs kids, but also running a nonprofit for families with special needs kids. “Us” time never came.
I know this is getting long, but bear with me. I promise I have a point! 🙂 We needed help. We couldn’t go on living the way we had been living. We both need to lose weight and increase our strength. Isaac, our 13 yr. old, is already over 200 pounds and strong as an ox! Rarely do we need to restrain him or physically move him, but there are times. Neither of us were prepared to deal with someone his size for the rest of our lives. THAT is the reality. Isaac will be in our home untill we physically cannot care for him. We need to be strong. We need to be healthy so that we ARE there for him.
So, why a coach? Well, one huge reason we decided to be coaches was because when we signed up to BE a coach, we GOT a coach. And we couldn’t be happier with our coach. She has been so wonderul. She is to us, who we want to be for you…. a mentor, a cheerleader, a source of information, a tour guide, and most importantly….she has been a friend.
In a time when we most desperately needed someone to come beside us and be our friend, she has done that… THAT is what we want to do for you. Not just tell you to buy this or drink that…but to invest in your life. To walk with you.
You deserve to be healthy. You deserve to have fitness made fun. You deserve to spend 2% of your day making youself feel better, look better, hold your head a little higher. YOU DESERVE IT! That is why we are doing this.
I know we ahve been “bugging” some of you to join our fitness group. Most of you we haven’t heard back from, which we expected. Please consider it. Not for us. We get very little from you joining us. Do it for you.
Comment or message us with any questions on how to join. You are our friends. We care about you. If we didn’t, we wouldn’t be fb friends. Give is 30 minutes of your day…a half of an hour to work on YOU. LET”S DO THIS TOGETHER!!!
