Dear busy moms,

Have you ever thought you were the only woman in the world who struggles with staying motivated, eating healthy, or just making time to go to the gym everyday? Does it seem there are not enough hours in the day? Do you feel like your life would just fall apart if you took even 30 minutes to yourself?


Life always seems to get in the way, doesn’t it? I’m here to tell you, you’re not alone. Women take on so much responsibility and feel guilty doing things they want to do. I know I do it.


I myself have been there.


I’ve struggled with being comfortable in my body my whole life. I can honestly say, it took 36 years before I was comfortable in my own skin. I remember thinking why do I have to work so hard to stay in shape? Why can’t I eat whatever I wanted like all my friends did? Why, why why? I have always been a thick woman. My legs especially!!


The day I stopped asking why and started loving myself for who I was (not who I thought everyone else wanted me to be) is the day it all changed!! I no longer worry what ANYONE thinks.


I do it for me and me only.


My perception on life even changed. The way I saw the world changed. Life just changed. I became a happier person. Those moments of self pity were a thought of the past. The desire or should I say will to improve who I was and wanted to become far outweighed the self loathing I had created in my head. This is what I hope for you…


I want to remind you how important you are!! How beautiful you are. I want to let you know that it is ok to take a break sometimes. I also, want to remind you how important it is to love yourself.


We’re so busy loving everyone around us and making sure the people in our lives are taking care of. We forget to take care of ourselves. You’re not being selfish if you want to live a happier, healthier life. You certainly are not selfish if you say “no” once in a while, either.


Keep your head high, Love with all of your heart. Dream big. Set goals. Dance in the rain. Hey, cry once in a while for no reason.. Let it out! Learn to grow in the darkest of hours. That is what makes you (us) beautiful women!!


Strength doesn’t always mean being strong. Strength to me means being stronger then I was yesterday. Laughing a little more. Not looking back, looking forward. Not letting anyone or anything keep you down. Continuing to grow. Finding peace. It means never giving up!!! NEVER. From this day forward live….Don’t just exist!!

#MotivationalMonday Nov. 13th

Yesterday was #MotivationalMonday and I dropped the ball… Eric and Chuck chatted about what the real definition of hard work is and most of you didn’t even know about it!


So here I am, telling you, to go and be inspired by their words.


Watch it here:

You can work hard or hardly work. The choice is up to you. From my own experience, I’ve learned that I would much rather grind it out, day after day, to see glimpses of success rather than to just go through the motions, treading water.


When I was a kid, I failed swimming lessons 3 years in a row. I went on to train at the Olympic Training Center for triathlons. I could have easily given up and said “I’m a poor swimmer.” But something in me clicked when I was in the pool, I just couldn’t put it all together when test day came around.


So, I joined the swim team. Day after day, I gave it my all. Good days, bad days, sick days, and holidays, I was there. And when I wasn’t, I read books on form and technique. I studied, I sweated, I gave it my all.


I worked hard to earn my spot on the college team and I continued to push the boundaries. I took that work ethic with me everywhere: school, sports, work, life, etc. Anything you do, do it with effort and do it with passion.

6 Secrets to the Fit Tribe Cleanse

This week we have over 40 Tribers doing the Fit Tribe Cleanse in Havertown…not including all those in the other locations who are jumpstarting their metabolism! Here are a few secrets to having a successful cleanse!


> Oh yeah, and even if you aren’t cleansing…all of these rules apply in your journey to your goals, so regardless of if you are cleansing or not, you should still read these tips below 🙂 <<< 


1. Drink lots and lots of WATER. Water helps you to feel full, while also keeping you hydrated for those workouts. Thirst can trigger hunger signals, so always grab some H2O first to make sure you’re not having mixed signals!


2. Be prepared. Make sure you have everything you need: produce and proteinso you don’t find yourself scrambling because you didn’t have enough food. Fail to prepare, prepare to fail. Lucky for you, you can always grab an Energy Grille smoothie if you’re really in a bind 🙂


3. Find a buddy. Fortunately, with so many people cleansing, you are BOUND to have someone you know experiencing the same things as you, so lean on them for support and accountability, they will help you throughout the process.


4. Get past Day 3. The resounding opinion of many is that Day 3 is the hardest…you’re not quite halfway there yet and you fasted that morning/afternoon, so it can be a drag. But just stay positive and stay the course because after Day 3, it’s all downhill from there 🙂


5. Be sure to hit reset! After the 7 days are over, make sure during your dinner on day 8 includes some carbs (1/2 sweet potato or some rice). This will boost leptin (metabolism) and you have officially reset your metabolism!


6. Rejoice in your accomplishments! Whether it’s 3 pounds or 11 pounds, give yourself a pat on the back for completing the cleanse and rejoice in your success! So often I hear people say “Well, I only lost 4 pounds…” But HELLO! You lost 4 pounds! And now you can continue to follow a clean diet and 4 turns into 6, 6 turns into 10 and before you know it, you are knocking on your goal.


And my extra super duper, high clearance secret?



BE POSITIVE. Okay, so it’s not THAT secret, but it can often be forgotten or overlooked during the week, or when going through something tough, so that’s why I had to point it out.



Keep these tips and tricks for whenever you need them in the future…and if you are cleansing this week, YOU GOT THIS!!! We are all here for you every step of the way!


If you’re struggling with your nutrition and don’t know where to start, our coaches can help you jumpstart your health goals. Reply to this email and one of our coaches can chat with you and get you set up to come in and make a positive change in your life.


Flipping through a magazine, you immediately start noticing how much you wish you had her figure or his abs or that look. Then you scroll through social media and see others dripping with success. You find yourself pining over them. You wish you had this or that, you wish you looked a certain way. You wish, you wish, you wish…


And you FREEZE.


All that wishing, cripples you. You focus so much on what you don’t have instead of putting your head down and grinding out the work to get there. I guarantee you all of those people you wish your life was like, aren’t busy double tapping pictures wishing their life was different. They’re busy creating. They’re busy with a life full of action. They’re busy with a life full of vision and passion and effort.


You need to be so busy creating your own life the way you imagine it that you don’t notice what anyone else is doing.


STOP trying to be a copy of someone else’s success. You won’t be able to reproduce the same results. That road has been forged before. Be creative, do what makes your soul shine, so you can make your own mark on this world instead of a shadow of someone else’s.


Innovation drives change. Positive change drives success. And success drives your sports car (or Jeep or jet or whatever your heart desires). But start at the basics: what is your why? What is your purpose?


Build from there. Your life should stem from your purpose and be a reflection of that. Everything should align with your overarching desires. And push, and push, and push and be relentless in your journey to you goals. Your head should be filled with ideas and ways to try to push the boundaries…


People will be wishing they were you, but it doesn’t matter…because you just won’t stop.


Find your why and build your life around it. Success will follow you there.


And your health success can follow you here…you can get started on our 6 week challenge starting on Monday October 9th, where you can burn 20 pounds for free! If you go all in, open-minded, and follow your coaches, you will find success! Learn more about it here >>>

Our Dirty Little Secrets

Today on Fit Tribe TV, we played a game that was **awesome** on so many levels…if you missed it, you can watch it here:


But here’s the gist: all the coaches sat on chairs next to each other, Mike read out a phrase that said something like “move 2 chairs to the left if you currently have unpaid parking tickets.” If the statement was true, you moved…and it didn’t matter if there was someone already sitting in the seat you were moving to, you just sat on their lap.


We just kept going like this and eventually, we ended up almost all in one seat! (I feel bad for the person on the bottom!!!)


It was hilarious!!!


But more than that, it helped us bond even more as a team. And team is very important. You can do a lot more together than you can as an individual. I’m blessed that every day I am surrounded by incredible teammates that all have my best interest in mind.


Being able to bond as coaches, aids us in building the community within Fit Tribe. The atmosphere that we are all here; together, working hard; together, reaching goals; together is what makes Fit Tribe such an incredible place.


Now, I could go on and on about why I love Fit Tribe so much, but I will spare you all the mushy-gushy details. Most of you know for yourselves firsthand anyways 😉


But for those of you who don’t and haven’t experienced Fit Tribe yet, definitely come in for a free trial workout and see what I’m talking about! >>>

Money in the Bank – Rosie’s Ramblings

I just bought a Groupon to a trampoline place near my house. *I AM SO EXCITED!* I haven’t jumped around on a trampoline since I saved up to buy one for over a year and convinced my parents why it was important that we had one.


I used every thought of reasoning I could when I was selling my parents on the idea of the trampoline…


But the biggest one of them all, was that I was going to save all my money over the next year or more in order to make the big purchase. They weren’t going to spend a dime.


And it worked. In about a year and a half, we were setting up the trampoline in the flat spot of our backyard. Our place was now a backyard all the neighborhood kids wanted to come to because, hello, TRAMPOLINE!


You might be wondering, what’s the connection? Where is Rosie going with this?


Well…it took time for an 11 year old to save up enough cash to buy what they had their eyes set on. It meant passing up on ice cream at lunch (now you KNOW I’m serious) so I could save the extra $1. It meant self control as I saw other kids buy new toys for their gameboys, but knowing that I would soon reach my goal.


And when I did, it was a blast!


It’s much like investing in your health. At first you are far away, you are just getting started. But then – you start making a dent and get closer to your goals. You might have some setbacks… but eventually you reach that goal. And it feels so good, like a kid bouncing around on a trampoline. 🙂


Wherever you are in your journey, don’t give up. You’ve put money in the bank, just keep pushing forward and soon you’ll be able to cash in and see the fruits of your hard work!


If you haven’t started your journey yet and want to, reach out to us and we will get you set up for a free trial workout…just click here to get started:

A Nutrition Commandment – Rosie’s Ramblings

Thou Shall Not Shame Thyself


We’ve all been there – at the party, when you held out on the crackers and only nibbled on the veggies. You followed everything to a T. You almost made it out of there unscathed. Almost.


Your willpower broke when the fresh warm cookies came out. Temptation took hold. You eat one on the way out the door.


The whole way home you berate and shame yourself for your wrong-doing. You can’t believe you ate it. You make yourself feel sick at the thought of it.


Once that train gets rolling, it’s hard to stop.


You get home and see the pounds in the mirror that single cookie just added to your hips. You continue to hate yourself for that one cookie. You know you are being ridiculous, the pounds don’t just magically appear within seconds, but you just can’t stop!


But you need to, really.


In fact, those thoughts shouldn’t even be allowed to enter your mind because guess what:


No matter how much you wish that cookie away, it’s not going to change anything. It’s done. All you can do is focus on the present to create your future. Focus on that next meal being healthy and stop creating added stress over something you can’t change.


So eat the damn cookie, fast for 14-24 hours, and get over it. Because the sooner you do that, the sooner you have control over your identity as a healthy person. You’ll stop fretting and start seeing those results!

Rosie’s Ramblings – Breakthrough

Stuck.  We’ve all been there.  Feeling like we have four tires, spinning dirt, stuck in the mud.  No matter how hard we push, it seems like we just can’t gain an inch.

Frustrations rise.  Part of us wants to give in and just leave the car for dead.  The other part of us wants to keep persevering and overcome.

You have a choice.

Do you succumb to defeat?

Walk away from the car, throwing in the towel.  A heavy cloud hangs over your head as you meander dejectedly back to your comfort zone.  It feels like a punch in the gut as you realize that you gave up on your goal.  It subsides to a numb nothingness as you think of how hard you worked and got nowhere.

You reach a dead-end.  The only way out is to go back the way you travelled, but you just don’t want to open yourself up to that failure again.  You stay there and have to be okay with the fact that nothing will change if you aren’t willing to.

Or do you choose to press on?

Continue the daily grind, pushing the self doubt that bubbles to the surface out of your mind.  Then slowly, you start to move in the right direction until you find yourself give, breaking free, and cruising back down the highway.

You’re on cloud nine.  You let out a sigh of relief.  Finally.  You reached the other side and the feeling of accomplishment rises up inside of you.  All the early mornings, long days, and hard work were worth it.  A sense of confidence fills you.  You can do anything you put your mind to, and immediately begin creating a new goal and laying the groundwork to get there.

You create your reality.  Will you be successful and drown out all negativity, or will you let it pull you down?  You need to decide.  It’s your choice, no one can make it for you.  Either way, you need to be okay with the outcome from your decision.

So, make your choice.

Rosie’s Ramblings – Visualization

Have you ever wanted something so bad, that you thought about it constantly. You thought how it would effect your life, your emotions, and comfort level. Maybe as a kid, it was a trampoline. You imagined having friends over and playing popcorn. You imagined jumping up and down and the happiness it would bring you. You begged your parents to get you one. You saved your allowance from chores for months. You made that dream a reality.

Visualization is key to attaining goals. Envisioning everything from the physical, mental, and emotional states brings it to real form. Now, find yourself a comfortable place as I take you through a visualization exercise that has helped me to succeed in so many ways. This exercise is done best laying down, but if it’s not possible with where you are at in the moment, you can certainly run through it while you are sitting.

Take a few slow breaths in. Inhale – one, two, three, and slowly exhale. Fill your lungs with oxygen and feel it fill your body. Let your body relax and your mind drift off. Do this a few more times and close your eyes.

You should be feeling a sense of ease. Now, squeeze your toes and clench your feet. Feel that tension. Hold it. And then slowly release it. Feel that stress leave your feet. Work your way up to your calves, again holding tension in the muscles for a few seconds, release it. Then do that for your thighs, abdomen, shoulders, arms, hands, and neck. Each time, feel your body sink deeper and deeper into a relaxed state.

Now that you’re relaxed, envision yourself on a beach. Feel the grainy sand beneath your toes. Hear the waves crashing on the shore. Take a deep breath and smell the salty air as a gentle breeze blows across your face. Feel the warm sun beaming down on you. Feel the relaxation of the moment.

Slowly, pull yourself away from the beach and find yourself walking into the gym. Hear the music playing as you walk in. Imagine who is with you, what you say to them, how you feel. Visualize yourself doing the warm-up, how the stiffness of your body releases as you move your body. Listen as the coaches describe your favorite exercise. It’s your turn.

Your heart rate quickens. The music blasts and you feel the heaviness of the kettlebell in your hand. You focus on your form as your press the weight overhead. You do one, two, five reps. Let yourself feel the exhaustion as you bang out one last rep. Sweat starts to drip as you push harder. Your coach corrects your form as you begin to fatigue. You hear praise as you do it right. You keep pressing on as you envision having the perfect workout and the happiness and excitement that comes from it.

You leave the gym and enter your kitchen. You open your fridge and feel the cool air on your face. It’s stocked with fresh fruits and vegetables. You pull out vegetables and meat and prep your lunch and dinner for the week. Imagine having a perfect week of eating. Your body feels energized and your mind clear.

Now, imagine stepping on that scale 6 weeks, 8 weeks, 12 months later…whatever your deadline is for you goal. See that number light up. Your heart soars. You hit your goal. You let out a sigh of relief, you feel happiness float through your body. You reward yourself with a new pair of pants, a few sizes smaller. You feel proud as your tell your friends your accomplishment. You did it!

Now, return to that beach. The seagulls are flying and the waves have made it to your feet. You feel the warm water wash over your toes. You let the breeze cool you from the hot sun.

Slowly, pull yourself from the beach. Wiggle your fingers and toes, then move your wrists and ankles as you bring yourself back to reality. Bring yourself from laying down, to sitting, and eventually to standing.

Keep the end feeling, that feeling of happiness and pride as your accomplish your goal with you at all times. You can do small visualizations of that moment whenever you find yourself stuck, faltering, or lacking motivation. Constantly envision your future while you are actively working on creating it so that your focus is always on your north star.

Rosie’s Ramblings – A Day In The Life


The alarm clock blares, breaking through your dreams and pushing you towards consciousness. Stumbling out from under your covers, you silence the shrilling sound. You quickly turn off your second alarm and slip out of your bedroom. You take three deep breaths as you wipe the sleepiness from your eyes.

Your mind starts turning. Your workout that you started thinking about the night before takes shape. Excitement rises up from the pit of your stomach as you come up with the perfect finisher.

Once that’s done, you set a stopwatch. You have 10 minutes to fold laundry as fast as you can. You break out a little sweat as you put things away. You check your watch and pick up the pace to beat your “score” from last time. Time.

You finish packing up your computer, apple, and water. You head out the door, phone flashlight in hand to find your way to your car.


As you drive down the highway, you put soft music on the radio, clearing your mind. You find peace in the early morning when few are awake. After a couple miles, you come back from your reverie and begin to think of all the things you want to accomplish that day. You recite that list a few times, adding a thing here or there. And then you arrive.


You quickly jot your to-do list down and begin to set up the workout. You feel your body loosening up as you continue to move around. You tweak a few things in the workout as the first person walks in.


The first session starts and you find energy pulsing through your body. You quickly begin cueing and motivating the Tribers. You jump up and down with excitement as someone begins to grasp the concept of a kettlebell swing. You feel electric. Time flies and before you know it, four sessions have gone by.


You gulp down a water as you grab some cleaning supplies. The hum of the vacuum drowns out the music as you make your way down the turf. You multitask, as you text a client in one hand and wipe down equipment with the other. You finish and catch up on other messages before the next sessions.


You find yourself having a heart to heart with a client, helping them through their frustrations and encouraging them to make adjustments. You motivate them and when they leave, you can tell they are walking with a positive bounce in their step. You gather up your papers and head downstairs to do backend work.


Other coaches arrive and a dog or two. You discuss some clients, goals hit, and struggles. You work together on projects. Music plays in the background and you talk about You reach out to clients to provide encouragement. You play tug-o-war with a pooch.


You and another coach decide to do the workout that you had craftfully concocted. You blast some Britney Spears and work it. Twenty minutes of sweat later and you grab an Energy Grille meal and some Wawa snacks.


You head home, happy and tired. Hours go by and you get a text from a Triber about a huge goal they just accomplished. You smile as your eyes tear up with joy for their achievement. You feel content. This is why you do what you do.

“Coaching is the universal language of change and learning.”
