Fit + Fueled

An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.
Get all the tools to take your physique into your hands. Over six-months, you’ll transform your life, mindset, and body in this program that’s part-course, part-coaching, and part-community.

A scary thing happens when you switch from a cardio-based workout routine to a strength training-based one.⁠⠀
You (usually) gain weight.⁠⠀
Terrifying, right?!?⁠
As your body adjusts to the new routine and muscles are being activated in ways they never have before, you’ll likely see an increase on the scale. You might see an increase of 3-5 (maybe more) pounds.⁠⠀

The good news is that, even though the scale is going up, your jeans are likely getting baggier and your arms are looking stronger. These are just a couple non-scale victories that come along with a routine change!⁠
If you see an increase on the scale, don’t freak out! You’re building precious lean body muscle that will improve your physique (you will look better naked!), increase your metabolism, and help you burn more fat. ⁠⠀

And, really, does it matter what the scale says if you feel great and you’re rocking a smokin’ hot body?!? ⁠⠀
