“What a year it’s been. It’s been just about a year and flex fuel has changed my life. My husband and I have been doing cross fit and we love it. However my husband really needed a change in his diet so I suggested we start flex fuel. We jumped right in and committed for six months. Having the support of my husband, my girls who I workout with and the support of my coach has helped me succeed. I’ve lost between 10-13 pounds but more importantly inches and toning areas that I never thought would be possible. There are times when I splurge (Dads weekend, vacations, etc..) but I just get right back to it and never miss a workout, even when I’m on vacation. You can always fit in a cross fit workout anywhere. I’ve been a runner for 15+ years and ran between 30-40 miles a week and now I only do cross fit and maybe run 10 miles a week. This was very hard for me at first but I believe weight training is the key to my success. I really had to listen to my coach. She told me I was working out way too hard. Katy has totally changed the way my husband and I eat and we can still eat the foods we like. She has been there every step of the way. She asks me how I’m feeling, changes my numbers in my diet and most of all encourages and pushes me to see the results I want. I love food and will power is not my strong suit. But I love working out and seeing results. This is a way of life for me now. Here’s to another year! Thank you so much Katy!”
Christine has made amazing progress, all while enjoying life and finding balance with her nutrition. She is a great example of properly going through a cut and then reversing, adding calories back in after, to make sure she stays healthy and her results are sustainable long term. We are periodizing her nutrition so that she can perform well, create a plan she can adhere to for life, see body composition changes and stay healthy doing it! She has learned that more isn’t always better when it comes to working out and is learning the balance in being active and getting ample rest and recovery.
The photo on the left is at the peak of her cut and the photo on the right is after reversing her up to maintenance calories, eating almost 500 calories more a day.
Christine started in January 2017 and we have worked to find a plan that has allowed her to LIVE! Make sure your nutrition plan is tailored to you and allows you to be flexible! A good plan will not only produce results, but it will produce that will last for a life time!
We are so proud of you Christine! Thank you for being patient, putting in the work and proving that this truly is a lifestyle. The best is yet to come!
