Binging and Fixing the Mind, Body, Food Connection

"Ok I've gotta eat strict, have to eat clean. Nothing processed, no junk, nothing high fat high carb can touch my lips..... except maybe I'll have the one cookie. DANG IT. Well I've gone and screwed it all up. I'm just going to finish the whole box."

"80% Diet, 20% Gym? Ok I guess that's how it works! But mannn.... I just ate 10 oreos.. so my diet portion is messed up. Well I guess I messed up my day anyways, a workout isn't going to help anything, so I'm not gonna work out today."

How many times have you ever had these thoughts, or similar runs, running through your head?

Don't you wish you could just Eat when you're hungry and just STOP when you're full or satisfied? Why do we feel the need to just STUFF STUFF STUFF when we're not even hungry?

12-Week Bikini Body Program!

Summer Bikini Body 12-Week Program!

*Information on the Memorial Weekend Sale at the bottom!

3 (three) 4-week calendars FULLL OF FAT BLASTING WORKOUTS to really kick your butt into gear this summer.

The way I've structured these workouts is that they're focused on high intensity moves mixed with low intensity moves, essentially like HIIT (high intensity intervals) cardio without the sprints! There's a mix of circuits, timed intervals, AMRAPs (as many rounds as possible) and more!

All different kinds of workouts to really push your body and make it CHANGE!

Trust me, after workout 1 you WILL FEEL IT! These are intense, you'll want to give up, but you WONT! Because you're going to get closer and closer to your goals each workout you do! Your body will adjust, don't worry! Don't give up, every workout is going to make you stronger, faster and BETTER!

The beauty of this program is that It can be done in the GYM orrrr AT HOME!! You just need some type of resistance (weights, books, soup cans, kettle bell, etc), a step up bench or stair step, an interval timer, and place to MOVE!

Now keep in mind this is the "BIKINI BODY" plan, so if you're looking to build serious muscle, this won't be the plan for you. If you're looking to increase endurance, get some serious fat burn and lose fat, then this is the perfect plan! A "bikini body" isn't a specific size or weight or look, but about you being happy and confident in the skin you're in and being fit and strong in your body!

It's official start date is JUNE 1!
But even If you don't start June 1, you can purchase this plan whenever you want and start the 12 weeks whenever your feel like it!!

Are you ready for a sweaty and intense summer??
Don't miss this opportunity to get your lifestyle on the right track!!

What's included: 
54 pages of:
  • 12 weeks of intense fat blasting workouts to work your whole body and lose the fat
  • bikini guide tips
  • food log and progress pages
  • grocery guide
  • how to continue the lifestyle after the 12 weeks

What are you waiting for?!
I've seen programs like this priced anywhere from $50 to $70! It's crazy! I know we all want to get fit and live healthy, but we have budgets too! So I've made this program affordable for you!

** note: if you cannot perform jumping movements like a squat jump or burpee due to physical limitations, then I recommend not purchasing this plan as it contains these two moves as well as other physically challenging movements similar to them.

Everything for just $23.99!
