“My Life Has Purpose” represents my 4 pillars of success.
Mindset. Lifestyle. Habits. Passion.
What I discovered after years of training women for weight loss, is that 80% of this journey is mental, and even a higher percentage of my clients actually under eat – not over eat.
When a client is looking lose 40, 50, 60 pounds or more it can seem like an impossible feat if the ONLY measurement of success is what the scale says. We as humans, like immediate gratification and if you are looking at the final weight loss goal far too often we never make it. They pay off is NOT quick enough so we lose interest and give up or quit.
This problem is exactly why I created my 4 pillars of Success. Mindset. Lifestyle. Habits. Passion. “My Life Has Purpose”.
I found it very important to build a program around the needs of my clients, and proactively address recurring issues from the past by removing or limiting the obstacles that routinely derailed them in the past.
Many trainers have their set nutrition or training program and will push it upon their client and expect their client to 100% adapt to their plan without any consideration for the clients current likes, dislikes, or daily life. While this may work for a short term pure weight loss tactic, I have found it very unsuccessful for adapting a true lifestyle change.
What many trainers fail to realize is the commitment a client has to a health and fitness plan will be drastically less than that of their own – and rightfully so. When it comes to general weight loss clients, their new training program is NOT their number one priority. Their work and family typically is, and they need a trainer that understands that.

Below is a list of a few of the most common reasons my clients have failed on previous attempts at weight loss.
Top 15 Reasons for previous failures: (in random order)
- Diet results in constant hunger.
- Diet results in barley enough energy to get through the day.
- Diet requires eating foods they hate.
- Diet requires eating like a “rabbit”.
- No time for or hate eating breakfast.
- Diet leaves them “hangry”.
- Not enough time.
- Feeling uncomfortable at their local gym.
- Not knowing what to do at the gym.
- Not knowing what to eat.
- Minimal or slow results.
- YoYo’ing on the scale each day/week
- Being discouraged in general with “life”.
After LISTENING to my clients and what their typical failures were, I set out to design a program that proactively addresses these issues before they happen in order to ensure success.
What I discovered was the ONE thing that each client truly lacked was their true ‘WHY?”
Far too often women do not recognize their true WHY. On the surface, their reason (why) for working out or eating better is to either lose weight or for the “kids”. While these are in fact good reasons, to ensure a successful lifestyle change it will take a much deeper, emotional reason. It is merely a cop out when a client simply tries to claim she is just “lazy”. There are so many deeper reasons one must connect with to be able to endure the necessary sacrifices that not only will ensure success, but also provide other measures of daily successes.
