#6 is the most important

Yup. Turns out fat *IS* contagious.


But probably not in the way you think.


It’s not like catching a cold where you touch a heavy person and then you go “Dammit, now I’m gonna be fat!”


Uh, no. That’s just silly.


It comes down to mindset. The best way I’ve heard it explained is “The 6th person” and it goes like this…


If you hang around five confident people, you will be the 6th

If you hang around five intelligent people, you will be the 6th.

If you hang around five millionaires, you will be the 6th.

If you hang around five idiots, you will be the 6th.

If you hang around five broke people, you will be the 6th.


It’s inevitable.


So it stands to reason if you hang out with 5 people who don’t prioritize their health and fitness, or are not ready to change their lives (or even worse have given up on living an extraordinary life) you will be the 6th.


You must choose which 6th you want to be very, very carefully.


And that is why I am inviting you to apply for my Get Paid to Lose Fat Program. It is a accelerated fat loss 6 week program designed to help you get lean, tight, toned and healthy fast – and it’s all free. (no tricks, no BS)



I want you to be one of the dedicated members who will be dropping 20+ pounds of fat and 4-6 inches from their bellies in only (guess how many) 6 weeks. You will be part of a fitness family with one goal in mind – making you the best version of you that you have ever been!


Why would I do this?


Because I want proof that my programs are so effective that even women who have tried every fat loss program under the sun, never worked out before or even “hate” the gym can have incredible amounts of fun as part of our fitness family while getting unlimited motivation and support and losing 20+ pounds of weight quickly, safely and permanently.


You will get the entire program:

Beginner’s Guide to Fitness

You look in the mirror and wonder to yourself: How did I let myself go this far?


Whether you are brand new to fitness, or you’ve simply fallen out of shape recently, here is the quick beginner’s guide to get you back on track quickly. Change your in-front-of-the-mirror thought bubble to: Wow, I look and feel amazing! by reading and taking the action steps below.



Step 1: Start with Motivation


Why do you want to get fit again? There must be a reason that you desire to change your body at this time in your life. Think about it until you have a very clear, very specific reason. There is no wrong answer here. We all have our own personal motivators for wanting to achieve our best selves.


What’s ultimately important is that your reason is specific and powerful to you. Once you’ve determined what your motivation is, write it down where you can see it every day. Think about it. Focus on it. Don’t ever let go of it.



Step 2: Work on Education


You need to eat right and workout smart in order to quickly achieve your goal body. Do you know how to do this? Are you sure?


While there is more information on fitness available to us today than ever before, all of the information noise often gets in the way more than it helps.

There is this diet or that diet or 100 others plus so many different workout programs…So don’t expect to know exactly how to get into shape by yourself.


A successful body transformation plan should be made by a fitness professional. We’ll take your personal information into account and will answer any and all questions to ensure your success.


Plus, Saturday, April 21st we are hosting a FREE Nutrition and Movement Workshop in Swarthmore starting at 8am. Perfect stepping stone to get you where you want to be!


Step 3: Seek out Support

It’s time to have an honest and vulnerable conversation with the people in your life who matter the most. Let them know how far you’ve let yourself go. Let them know what your goal is. Let them know why this matters so much to you.


Your success rate depends heavily on the support system that you build around yourself as you begin to implement healthy lifestyle changes.


It’s very possible that you’ll find one or more people in your life who are threatened by your desire to improve yourself. While this can be upsetting, try to approach it with understanding. The best scenario would be them joining you.



Step 4: Get Started!


I know sometimes you do all the research and figure out what you want to do and why, but then you get to the start date and you freeze!  Because starting something new makes yourself vulnerable to failing.  And maybe you’ve tried and failed so many things in the past that trying again just seems…daunting.  You start to talk yourself out of it…

Just do it.  I posted a video earlier this week about just showing up (click here to watch the video).  And that’s what you need to do to get on with your goals.  Be a participant in your life, not just a bystander.


Journeys are long and not always easy but through the journey you discover more about yourself and find that you are better off having started than never starting at all.


So, try it.  Do it.  And see what happens when you jump head first into it.






Committed to Your Success,

Rosie and The Fit Tribe Team

You’re Invited! ~ Rosie’s Ramblings

I threw myself a pity party. I invited Anxiety, Depression, and Doubt. They brought gifts of nightmares and tissues and everything in between. We celebrated the exhausting year of disappointment, lies, death, and underperformance.


You can imagine, we had a grand old time.



But when it was all said and done, I had to wrap up the party and send them out the door because there’s only so long you can spend with them and they were really starting to overstay their welcome.



So, after failed attempts of asking them nicely to leave, I had to take matters into my own hands and force them out.



It’s okay to feel all those emotions, but when you start letting them run your life instead of you taking control, compounding effects start to occur.


Life isn’t all sunshine and rainbows – there have to be the thunderstorms. And sometimes it takes a tree falling on your car to jolt you awake again.



You are given one life.


That’s it.


There’s no second chances. There’s no do-overs.


If you want something, you have to work for it. Nothing is just handed to you. If you have regrets, at some point you just have to accept the past and move forward. If you constantly dwell on the shoulda, coulda, wouldas, you are going to continue in this vicious self-loathing cycle.


Life gets in the way of your goals sometimes. It sucks. You just have to deal with it. Course correct and continue pushing forward.


The moment you decide to let others choices and emotions effect you is the moment you stop ruling your own reality. Sometimes you need to emotionally, mentally, and physically push yourself forward lest you are trapped in the dark, demented reality that isn’t productive.


So, maybe some of you are experiencing a challenging situation. Take a step back – are you allowing your thoughts to control you more than letting your actions lead you forward?


Maybe you’ve lost your way to your goals. Look at the bigger picture – where did you go wrong and what steps are you now going to take to fix it so you can get back after it?


Answering those tough questions is like hitting the reset button. A wave of relief washes over you and cleanses the crevices of all the negative emotions held tight inside. Instead, a renewed sense of self and clarity fill your being and you are able to push forward, fight the good fight, and run your life again.



It’s not easy, and sometimes you need a little nudge (or hard push) from those around you to help you out of the depths of despair. If you need help on getting out of the rut and back on track to your health and fitness needs, come on in for a free trial workout >>> go.fit-tribe.com/free-session and push the reset button on your goals.

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.”

Rosie’s Ramblings – Criticism

Doling out criticism can be daunting, knowing that you are responsible for telling someone else that what they are doing is broken. You’ve been there, on the receiving end, and it’s disconcerting. So you fluff it up just enough to be constructive rather than destructive.



There’s an art to criticizing. The goal should be to give someone areas to build upon while still keeping their core foundation. Likewise, there is an art to receiving criticism. It’s looking the person square in the eye, rather than dropping your chin. It’s acutely listening to what the other has to say. It’s reflecting on the words and ultimately, taking action on them to improve in whatever capacity necessary.



Living without criticism is like walking through a child’s playroom in the dark, one false step and you find a lego block lodged on the bottom of your foot. Criticism is the light needed to guide you to your goals. Acting positively upon it, could be the game changer. It could be the difference between you getting the promotion or losing your job. It could be the difference between losing the weight you always wanted or staying stuck where you’re at. It could be the difference between changing your life or feeling like life is passing you by.



Criticism is important. You may need to be knocked down a few pegs in order to work your way back up, but you don’t want to be shattered beyond repair, so don’t let it tear you down.



My coach at the Olympic Training Center was notorious for being nagging and nit-picky about the tiniest little things, while the compliments were few and far between. While her critiquing style certainly needed some improvement, I knew that I would much rather have her dishing it out over and over again and grow a thick skin than to hear nothing but crickets. I knew that the moment I heard silence, would be the moment she had given up on me. So I took the criticism, relentlessly, and picked out the most common deficits and worked hard on those areas, knowing that I was working towards my main goal.



Keeping that North Star always in your vision helps you realize that what needs to be worked on may be the catalyst to bridge the gap between where you are and where you want to be. So, the next time you find yourself on the receiving end of a critique, take from it, learn from it, grow from it, and become a better you from it!
