Once I had my hormones in check I was ready to start losing the weight and this Youtube program was perfect for me. You know going in that it is going to be a lot of work to lose 30lbs but the 12 habit program is very manageable. What makes it so good is that the program institutes lifestyle habits throughout the 12 weeks. The habits not only help you lose weight throughout the program but they are also habits that you can maintain after the program is over.
The Youtube videos made it real easy for me to get access to the next habit as well as give me an idea of why we were doing each habit. The only suggestion that I had through the process was to release the video a little earlier in the weekend so that I could get prepared for the next habit. Angela quickly made that change. Angela was extremely supportive throughout the process which helped me feel like I was still connected to someone even though the program was done through the videos.
The nutrition program made sense which made it easier to take the hard work and sacrifice involved in losing the weight. Every step of the way I felt like what I was doing was healthy and making sense for my body. So many diets today feel gimmicky and not maintainable.
Over the 12 week period I lost the 30 pounds that I wanted to lose and in fact managed to do it with a couple of weeks to spare. I would recommend this program to anyone who is looking to get healthy and develop habits that will enable them to stay healthy after the program is over. Thanks Ang for helping me get healthy again at 40.”
After the 4th workout my husband noticed my energy levels and we were able to do outdoor activities together for a much longer period than we were able to do before. He became very grateful for my sessions with Angela – it now wasn’t just me that it was impacting.
After the 7th workout I really began to feel my muscles again and the isolation of the different muscles at work. I felt strong and able and confident. Angela is truly passionate about her training and you can see it in everything she does.
About half way through my 3 month workout program I was as flexible as I was about a decade ago. I felt young and energetic. Angela is smiling throughout and so encouraging. She is thrilled to hear about how your life is improving due to the physical training. She is genuine, happy, energetic, encouraging, supportive, and absolutely wonderful to be with.
Needless to say after the 3 month workout program, I could not quit. It is simply too important for one’s health and the impact it has on their life, not only for themselves but also for their loved ones around them. I now see spending money on training sessions with Angela is just as important as buying groceries.”
I trained with Angela at a time when I had very little motivation to make a serious change in my life. Her energy and enthusiasm is contagious; I quickly stopped finding excuses to avoid the gym and started finding ways to get there more often. The more I see results, the more I am driven to push myself. I can hear Angela’s voice in my head telling me to do “Just three more!” when I can’t even think of finishing what I am in the middle of. The pay off has been a strong body and a healthy mind. I continue to notice changes that amaze me, and it is all because of Angela’s focus and determination to help me achieve my very best; which is much more than I ever believed was possible.
I highly recommend Angela for anyone who has decided to make a change and is ready to see results.”
I have told numerous people that they need to go through this program. I tell them that most of us have no idea how to correctly eat and exercise, and that learning the correct way makes a huge difference. I tell them I really enjoyed the process, even though I had to work very hard. I tell them I am more fit at 39 then I was at 29, and maybe even 19. I tell them that anything can become a habit, positive or negative, might as well choose to follow good habits. I tell them how I had hernia surgery in January, and have not felt even the slightest bit of pain in months. I tell them how my cholesterol is lower every time I get tested. I tell them how much better I feel, how much energy I have, how much more attracted my wife is to me, and how great it feels to have someone say “Wow, do you ever look great”. I tell people how I have had to buy all these new clothes, and now have a pile of “fat clothes” in the closest that are so big on me they look like somebody else’s clothes. To be honest, I talk about it constantly.”
I can’t say enough about how valuable Angela’s coaching is. Each week she provides you with helpful and comprehensive information, and her knowledge and experience is shared in such a genuine and supportive way. I wholeheartedly and enthusiastically recommend Angela to anyone who is ready to make a transformation to their nutrition and wellness. Thank you!”
I had lost motivation, I was tired all the time and I had sunk into some pretty bad eating habits. I defended to myself that I just couldn’t do anything else, being self employed with a new baby. But seeing the scale and having to buy new clothes, larger clothes, was too much.
I made the call and made a commitment to do whatever was asked of me for 3 months. Just 3 months. I could do anything for 3 months. So if she said stand on my head, I was committed to doing that because what I was doing, was obviously not working!
Prior to my son’s birth, I was a triathlete and marathon runner, a pretty fit individual, or so I thought! After my first workout, that didn’t even contain weights, I could barely walk up my stairs! I had really let myself go and I hadn’t even realized it.I still saw myself as the fit runner. It was an eye opener.
The nutrition program and workout program were gradual and progressive based on my timeline and achievements. There were times when I slowed it down and times when I was able to move on quickly. I stayed true to myself and the program because I saw results! My clothes started to fit better, I had more energy and I became much stronger than I had ever been before. After my 3 months, I loved it and just kept going! I reached my goal in 1 year and then had to buy new, smaller clothes! I eat differently now and am conscious of how and what I eat.”
