How to Prioritize Personal and Professional Development

As CEO and creator of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss, it’s no secret that I’m serious about health and wellness. If you follow me on Instagram, you know whole food nutrition and daily exercise is a huge part of my daily routine. This is how I continue to reach my fitness goals and inspire thousands of clients to do the same!

In the same way that exercise is necessary for physical growth, prioritizing personal and professional development is equally important. Take it from me: growing a business is all about personal and professional development. In fact, your success and failure as a business owner or employee relies on development. We learn and grow through the obstacles, trials, AND wins.

When we start viewing challenges as gifts and opportunities to grow, our perspective can shape our circumstances. Through them, make the choice to be proactive about your personal and professional development strategy.

Not sure where to start? I’ve got you covered! In a recent LIVE video on Facebook, I rounded up my favorite podcasts, books, and strategic events that will serve as a launching point for anyone ready to dig deeper and develop as a leader.

Podcasts

Podcasts have played a huge role in my professional development. They’re amazing ways to learn from a variety of leaders and storytellers. Here are some of the podcasts I’m currently listening to:

In his podcast, Donald Miller provides effective marketing strategies and perspectives in an easy-to-consume format with lots of tips for small businesses. The most recent episode was especially applicable to the FASTer Way!

Ali Brown interviews the most powerful and influential female entrepreneurs that reveal vulnerable conversations on unique topics. Ali is my business coach, and I had the honor of being interviewed on episode 147.

Through this NPR podcast, Guy Raz dives into the stories behind some of the world's best known companies.

He may be polarizing, but it’s hard to listen to Tony’s podcast and NOT be inspired. He shares proven strategies and tactics to help listeners achieve massive results in business, relationships, health and finances.

When I want to listen to an expert on health and wellness, this podcast by my friend Dr. Stephen Cabral is my go-to. Dr. Cabral is a wealth of knowledge, and we’re thrilled to have him join our new scientific advisory board for the FASTer Way. We’ll be announcing more details soon!

Pro tip: Don’t think you have time to listen to podcasts? Get creative! Use your workouts, commutes, or down time wisely. I listen to podcasts first thing in the morning while I get ready for the day!

Books

Podcasts are a great way to learn about a broad variety of topics, but I always have a book on hand when I’m ready to dig deeper. Here’s what I’m currently loving:

I’ve been learning so much from this book! In it, Hendricks discusses the “upper limit problem” and how we can break through it to live in our zone of genius and rise to our highest potential. We all can apply this to both our personal AND professional lives.

This book is an incredible tool that will empower you to share your brand and communicate with your audience regardless of your position.

This book has been foundation through the last three years of growing and scaling my business.

Events

Full disclosure: I’m a homebody, and traveling is not my strong suit. I really have to push myself out of my comfort zone to travel for events. I have found, though, that when I push myself out of my comfort zone, these events and the people I meet are life-changing! They provide space to freely think about growing my business and spend time face-to-face with incredible leaders of the marketplace.

Conferences are important and should be attended strategically, but I admit that this is SO hard for those of us with young kids. When I travel, I miss my family terribly. Despite missing my husband and kids, being at these events is key and worth it in the long run. Events to attend will vary depending on your field, but here’s an example of events I make time for:

  • I’m a member of a mastermind group with Ali Brown. We meet in Scottsdale, and spending time with a group of women that really cheer for each other, encourage one another, and push each other is absolutely worth the hassle of travel!

  • This week, I’ll be traveling to California to speak at Keri Murphy’s Brilliant event for female entrepreneurs. I can’t wait to share with other women eager to grow their businesses, and learn from them in the process!

Regardless of how you choose to practice personal and professional development, don’t simply listen to the podcast, read the book, or attend the event. You must IMPLEMENT what you learn. Take the actionable content and hold yourself accountable to practice it. Power hours are great, but pursuing bold action is key. Habituate yourself to fear, take yourself out of your comfort zone, and act.

I’d love to hear from you! What are you listening to, reading, or attending to grow professionally? Comment below!

3 Lessons Learned in Creating an Online Business

You’ve probably noticed that we’ve been hard at work adding incredible members to the FASTer Way corporate DREAM TEAM. In addition to continuing to service our clients and continue to grow the FASTer Way, with the help of my team members, I finally have more margin to spend time sharing about a topic I’m passionate about: entrepreneurship.

It’s hard to believe that eight years ago this week, I started my virtual fitness business. I started my business as a blog that was actually inspired by training a gym client who told me I needed to share my program by writing a book. I laughed and told her that I couldn’t write a book (which is ironic considering my first book was released last week), but I COULD start a blog. I created my fitness blog as a way to share value, publish content, and provide virtual training for clients that had moved out of state.

My blog quickly took off and allowed me to connect to a number of professionals and companies that greatly helped me when I first started and then eventually created the FASTer Way just three years ago. Since then, I’ve learned so much about starting, growing, and scaling an online business. Here are three lessons to help as you create your own online business:

1.Be willing to iterate and do it quickly

When you ramp up a business and prepare to scale, you have to be willing to iterate. What was working when you first started your business might not be working anymore. Listening to the marketplace to get a good pulse on what people want and need is key.

Eight years ago, fitness bloggers like me were limited to one-on-one training. That eventually led to group workouts, and then I even created two workout DVDs. But fast forward a few years, and thanks to technological advances, the FASTer Way is disrupting the marketplace and creating a new category of fitness and nutrition industry. We’re the only company to combine digital fitness with nutrition and support to empower our clients to change their lives. We are moving at the speed of the internet, and this is required to rise above competition and fill a need in the marketplace. Adaptability is now a core value for my corporate team, and it should be a core value for you as well.

2. It’s not the critic who counts

If I allowed internet trolls and haters to stop me, we would never have launched the FASTer Way over three years ago. When I first introduced intermittent fasting as a core strategy to the program, I received so much criticism that my husband Brandon told me that anyone else would have quit. But we didn’t do that, and we still won’t budge when criticism comes. And guess what? Intermittent fasting is now a mainstream trend.

This quote from Theodore Roosevelt sums it up perfectly:

“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”

It’s taken some time, but my skin has thickened to negative reviews and copycat programs; they no longer trigger me. As you follow your mission, you might be criticized by friends, family members, and strangers. But this doesn’t matter. Keep your confidence in your vision and mission, and turn the criticism into fuel.

3. Team is everything

You cannot do it all on your own. You can try, and you might even be able to grow your business, but you won’t scale. You need people who can come alongside you to help your business take off. Our team has changed over the years and it will continue to change, but that’s a GOOD thing.

Untitled design-5.png

Not everyone is adaptable or willing to embrace a start-up culture, and sometimes it’s necessary to part ways with team members. Embrace the change, and know that the empty seat on the bus WILL be filled by the right team member. I’m so grateful for each and every person on the FASTer Way team, and can’t wait to see what we will accomplish together!

I hope this list of just a few of the many lessons I’ve learned over the years will help you focus on what really matters in creating your business. I can’t wait to share more with you soon!

Life after her stroke - Meet Courtney Schultz

Screen Shot 2019-06-04 at 8.42.26 AM.png

Medical emergencies often serve as a sort of wake-up call to better health. But for Courtney Schultz, a top FASTer Way to Fat Loss influencer, her wake-up call was drawn out over the course of seven years.

It all started in 2010. Between gaining a few newlywed pounds and 50 pounds of pregnancy weight in just one year, Courtney developed gestational hypertension during her first pregnancy. She worked hard to lose the baby weight, but eating for fuel and exercising with intention were not her focus. Instead, hitting the gym felt like a chore, and Courtney found herself feeling insecure and miserable even at her pre-pregnancy weight.

Courtney was pregnant again the next year and tried to be more mindful of weight gain, but again experienced gestational hypertension. Instead of adjusting her diet, Courtney treated her high blood pressure with medication.

Just three weeks after the birth of her second son, Courtney suffered a stroke that left her in the neuro intensive care unit where doctors determined that her extreme high blood pressure caused dissections in her vertebral arteries, which then led to multiple strokes in her cerebellum.

Something had to change, but Courtney wasn’t ready. The following months were spent in a depressed, drug-induced funk. Between pain medications, high blood pressure medications, and the fear of leaving behind two little boys, Courtney found herself in the darkest place of her life.

Another five years passed and Courtney experienced two more pregnancies. Finally ready for a new lifestyle after the birth of her fourth child, Courtney discovered the FASTer Way. She was ready to shed the baby weight once and for all and have a fresh start.

Not only did she reach those goals, but what Courtney discovered through the FASTer Way was even more life-changing:

“The FASTer Way has given me such power in my relationship with food! Food is something I am now PASSIONATE about and I truly believe in the power of healing and wellness through our nutrition because of the information and education provided by the program.”

Courtney spent years ignoring all the signs her body was giving her—like headaches, bloating, and high blood pressure—to signal that something was not right. Through the FASTer Way, she now knows how to use nutrition, rest, and exercise to give her body what it needs to thrive!

“They say if you know better, do better. Now that I know this way of living, and this level of care for my body, I can never go back to treating my body like a dumpster again. I still enjoy frequent treats, celebrations and indulgences, but my norm is whole food nutrition.”

Now as a FASTer Way to Fat Loss influencer, Courtney is using her story to help change the lives of her clients: “I’m forever grateful to have found this program and to have been able to lead others to it as well!”

You can follow along on Courtney’s journey by following her on Instagram or by visiting her website.

Coach Spotlight: Kristen Mills

Coach Spotlight: Kristen Mills

As the world tried to bring me down, labeled me as divorced and unemployed and a single mom, the FASTer Way catapulted me to levels I never dreamt possible.

Kristen Mills, top FASTer Way to Fat Loss certified coach, wasn’t sure what life held for her after her world changed. She and her husband divorced. She was a stay-at-home mom of three young boys. And as a former teacher, she had the earning potential of $30,000 per year.

How was she going to support her family in her new situation? How could she continue staying home with her boys if she needed to go back to work? How could she survive on $30,000 when it just didn’t pay the bills?

The answer came in May 2018. Kristen was in bed, sad about not being able to lose the baby weight and eating M&M’s. She’d had an eye on the FASTer Way to Fat Loss for a year and a half but never thought she could do it. On this day, even with low expectations of succeeding, she closed her eyes and hit register. As she says,

It was the BEST thing I’ve ever done. I’m not a disciplined person and it was the first time I ever felt proud. I felt better than I ever felt before I had children, as far as losing the fat, getting the mental clarity, getting my energy back, and just feeling GOOD despite my world that was crumbling at home. I felt in control.

Kristen loved the FASTer Way so much that she was always sharing about it on social media. She was sharing the recipes she was creating and having fun talking about the program with her followers. She could be in her best shape—mind, body, and soul—and still be eating good food without feeling deprived.

And then the coaching opportunity came up. Kristen says, “I had no background in fitness, wellness, or nutrition. I felt like I was the last candidate for this, but something in my heart said, ‘You’ve got to try this Kristen.’  It just kept tugging at my heart.” Something told her to do the coaching, so she jumped in with both feet.

Kristen went on to say, “I did it and I’ve never been so happy, so proud, and so grateful in my entire life. The confidence, the stability, the income, the community the FASTer Way has provided since I became a coach has completely rocked my world.”

Needless to say, she has rocked her coaching. By the first annual FASTer Way Coach Conference in April 2019, Kristen had coached more than 5,000 men and women through the program and earned the top coach award—less than a year after joining as a client.

With all of her coaching success, Kristen remains humble and driven to help other women. Not just clients, but other coaches as well. She is passionate about seeing other women RISE to their fullest potential and achieve their dreams!

For women who feel like they still haven’t found “their place” in the working world, you’ll be encouraged by Kristen’s words. “I never thought I was really good at being an employee. This is the first time I’ve felt proud of myself and thought I could be good at it!  And I know it’s because the FASTer Way has equipped us as coaches, and I’m so grateful.”

Sleep Better to Burn Fat

Sleep Better to Burn Fat

*Disclaimer: results may vary.

Did you know that sleep is critical to becoming a pro fat burner? Truly, it is an important piece of the fat-burning puzzle and has significant effects on almost every aspect of life. That’s why the clients in the FASTer Way to Fat Loss program will be focusing on sleep quantity and quality during our next round. 

Sleep doesn’t come easily for everyone. Some people struggle for years to both fall asleep and stay asleep. If you’ve tried to sleep better but still haven’t found the secret ingredient you need, we’ve got a few strategies for you to try that really work! But before we get into those, here are a few reasons it is important to focus on sleep.

Lower Cortisol Levels

Cortisol is your body’s stress hormone. When your cortisol levels are high, your body stores fat. According to recent research, not getting enough sleep can raise cortisol levels in the afternoon and evening, making sleep difficult. 

Increased Willpower

When you are sleep deprived, your willpower is depleted. This means that you are more likely to stray from foods that fuel your body well and reach for the donuts instead. Sleep deprivation alters your overall judgement and can often put you in compromising situations when you’re trying to stick to a healthy lifestyle. 

Regulated Hunger Hormones

When you’re not sleeping, your hunger hormones (ghrelin and leptin) get all out of whack. Ghrelin signals to your brain when it’s time to eat. Your body produces more ghrelin when you are sleep deprived, which means you feel hungry more often. Leptin is your satiation hormone, and lets your body know that you’ve eaten enough. Your leptin levels are significantly decreased when you are not sleeping well. So, you are always hungry, don’t ever really feel full, and have depleted willpower…

…hello donut binges??!?!!

Decreased Sensitivity to Insulin

After just a few days of insufficient sleep, your body will struggle to process insulin (the hormone responsible for changing sugar and starches into energy). When your insulin sensitivity is decreased, you are going to store fat.

TIPS TO SLEEP BETTER…

These strategies are highly recommended for optimizing your sleep patterns. They have proven effective for countless people and might just help you, too!

Be Sure Your Bedroom is Nice and Cool

You sleep better when it’s cool. Your body has natural signals that let it know when it is time to wind down and go to sleep. A decrease in temperature is one of those signals. Ensuring that your room is cool will help your body know it’s time to wind down. 

Eat Clean

This is kind of a no-brainer, but one of the most common things we hear from FASTer Way to Fat Loss clients is that they are sleeping better. For many, this is because they are truly cleaning up their diets. Eating processed junk right before bedtime will keep your digestive system working incredibly hard throughout the night and make good sleep hard to achieve. 

Get Vitamin D

Interaction with natural light causes your body to produce melatonin, which is critical in regulating your sleep cycles. Many people use a melatonin supplement, but a better first line of defense is to get out in the sun for about 20 minutes each morning. Vitamin D helps your body naturally produce its own melatonin, making a supplement unnecessary. If you can’t get out in the sun, or are still struggling to sleep, then you might consider adding in a melatonin supplement. 

Go Screen-Free

The blue light from our computers and phones suppresses the production of melatonin and can make it difficult for our brains to shut down when it’s time for bed. Shut off your devices at least one hour before bed. You can even purchase a pair of blue light reducing glasses to decrease the blue light effect on your hormone levels. 

Keep Your Room Pitch Black

Light is another signal to your body that it’s time for bed. Be sure that your bedroom is completely dark. This will let your body know it’s time for bed and make falling asleep a whole lot easier!

Don’t Exercise Right Before Bed

Exercise increases several hormone levels. Doing it too close to bedtime can make falling asleep incredibly difficult. Be sure that you are leaving at least 4 hours between finishing your workout and going to bed. This will give those hormones the opportunity to level out so you are better able to sleep. 

Sleeping 7-9 hours per night is critical to burning fat, increasing your energy levels and feeling your absolute best. If you are struggling to sleep, do your best to set up a nightly routine that works for you. Try implementing some of these strategies to optimize your sleep each night. For many people, this has made a huge difference in the way they feel, their overall productivity, and their ability to burn fat!

How to Make the Most of Your Leg Day

How to Make the Most of Your Leg Day

At the FASTer Way to Fat Loss, we don’t believe in deprivation. That’s why we designed our food cycle to allow our clients to enjoy their favorite treats on Leg Day, totally guilt-free. We work out a large muscle group—our legs—which results in a ramped up metabolism, turning our bodies into fat-burning machines all day long.  

Our weekly food cycle builds up to Leg Day, and trust us, we love it as much as you do! But is there anything worse than feeling like your Leg Day is a flop?! To help you avoid a “Leg Day let down,” here are a few tips to make the most of it.

Crush Your Workout

You probably know that we’re serious about our donuts, but we’re even more intentional with our workouts. Leg day isn’t the time to skip your workout or to “get through it” half-heartedly. Whenever possible, schedule your Saturday around your workout. Prioritize hitting the gym or your home exercise area before you enjoy your treat. Can’t stand the thought of spending 45 minutes of your Saturday exercising? Make it fun! Grab a friend to workout with you, or move your weights outdoors and enjoy the view.

Leg Day is the perfect day to push yourself. Whether that means increasing your weights or graduating from the low impact workouts to the gym or home exercises, give 110% of your effort. Remember, you’re not working out to “earn” your treat, but don’t let that stop you from challenging yourself.

Be Intentional with Your Macros

A common misconception about Leg Day is that it’s a cheat day. Our weekly food cycle includes low carb days and regular macro days, but note that there’s no mention of a cheat day.

Being intentional with your macros on Leg Day is the major difference. Take time to pre-plan your macros. Enter your planned treat first, and fill the rest of your macros with balanced whole foods. This will help you stay on track through Leg Day and avoid letting one treat snowball into a day of bad choices.

It’s also important to be intentional with your treat of choice. There’s nothing worse than indulging in a treat just to see something you’d rather enjoy later. Being choosy with your treats will keep you from mindlessly grazing throughout the day.

Progress Over Perfection

We get it—life happens and leg day treats can get out of hand. If your leg day ends up looking like more of a cheat day, don’t beat yourself up! Learn from your mistakes, and get right back on track the next day. That’s the beautiful thing about the FASTer Way lifestyle; you can pick up right where you left off. Remember, our motto is progress over perfection. Every day is the opportunity to make progress in our health and fitness goals.

Let’s hear it, how do you make the most of your leg day? More importantly, what’s your favorite leg day treat? Comment below!

How to Stay Stress-Free During the Holidays

FullSizeRender.jpg

While December should be a phenomenal time we enjoy with our family and friends, often it can be a highly stressful time for many of us. December is typically full of parties and food and tons of things to get done, but that doesn’t mean we have to go through the month feeling overwhelmed. Ultimately, that overwhelm leads to stress, stress eating, and out-of-whack emotions. Listen, it truly does not need to be this way. Here are a few tips to help you stay stress free and in control over the next few weeks.

While most of my tips have to do with health and nutrition, my first tip doesn’t, so bear with me.

Tip #1: Limit your time with toxic family members.

I know this might feel impossible to do; you likely feel obligated to spend time with family members, even though you know they are not good for you or your family but here’s the thing, you are an adult. You get to decide who you spend time with. Over the last year, Brandon and I have decided to be extremely intentional about the the people we allow into our lives and into our holidays. This decision has led to some of the best holidays we’ve ever had. Toxic people are like crabs. When a cage with some food is thrown into the water, one crab will usually go to the cage to get the food. Soon, the rest of the crabs follow the first one into the cage, even though the food is already gone. Some of the crabs will try their best to get out of the cage, through the open top, but the crabs on the bottom of the cage will actually pull them down, often killing them in the process. Sounds pretty grim, right? Well, this is often the effect toxic people have on those around them. They seek to bring everyone down with them. My first tip for remaining stress-free is to choose who you invest your time with; time is your most valuable commodity.

All right, let’s get into the health and nutrition stuff.

Tip #2: Enjoy treats on the holidays.

Notice I didn’t say to enjoy treats every day between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. However, that is when most people gain weight. Because of all the parties and treats that are available during the month of December, we often end up eating more than we need to fuel our workouts. While I wholeheartedly believe you should not deprive yourself of things you love during the holidays, it is important that you are extremely intentional about when and why you enjoy those treats. Choose the ones you love the most, and have at ‘em on the actual holidays! Make sure that you are mindful of your eating during the rest of the month. Also note that having processed foods around during this season can really affect your emotional state of being. Eating clean will help you feel emotionally stable, happier and more level headed, which will be key to keep stress at bay during the holiday season.

Tip #3: Be sure you are getting enough sleep.

I know firsthand how hard this can be. However, it is so important for maintaining low stress levels. Some things that have helped me find a good sleep pattern are: going to bed at the same time each night, keeping my room cool and dark, and limiting screen time prior to bed. Another thing that has helped me dial in a healthy sleep cycle is waking up at the same time every morning. I know that these things are not always possible, but sleep cycles are extremely important in regulating hormone levels. Those hormone levels are directly related to your stress levels and whether or not your body is storing fat or burning fat. So do your best to get into a good sleep habit. It will go a long way in helping you feel in control through the month of December.

Tip #4: Continue workouts, but slow down if you need to.

Do your best to work out consistently through the month of December, but  do not be afraid to scale back a workout if you’re having a particularly stressful day. Undoubtedly, there will be a few bumps in the road where you come up against  stressors. When that happens, it’s really important you listen to your body and ease up on your workout. If you are feeling incredibly stressed, and go all-out for an intense workout, you are going to increase your cortisol levels when they are already elevated. That will make losing belly fat all the more difficult. Plus, there are times when your body just needs a break. Be sure that you are listening well to what your body is telling you, and then give it what it needs.

The month of December can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t need to derail you from pursuing your health and fitness goals. While you may need to do some things a little differently to keep your stress levels low, it is entirely possible to feel in control and truly thrive during the holiday season.

If you’re ready to do something for YOU, then now is the time.  Sign up for the FASTer Way and you’ll instantly receive the comprehensive program guide with all the details.  Even though our accountability group won’t officially start until prep week, you can get started now by practicing the principles and getting a head start on feeling your absolute best!

She made 10k her first month of being a coach

*Disclaimer: results may vary.

When you’ve been working with clients for 10 years and they stop seeing results on their fitness journey, it’s pretty discouraging.  

That’s exactly what Le Bergin was experiencing as a gym owner, fitness instructor, and bootcamp leader.  And she wasn’t sure how to help them.

Screen Shot 2018-10-30 at 2.55.48 PM.png

Her clients were overwhelmed, trying all the latest fads and following trendy nutrition advice.  Le wanted to know exactly what they were experiencing, so she started utilizing the same strategies—keto, fasting, eating 10 meals a day, etc.—and guess what?  She gained weight and became just as frustrated as her clients. As a trainer who is passionate about health and wellness, Le knew there was a better way, she just hadn’t found it yet.

That all changed when she found the FASTer Way to Fat Loss.  Le said, “I found THE textbook I had been trying to teach, but trying to meet everybody where they were.  This perfect program was everything I’d done, everything I believed in, my training style, the progressive way people are working out.  The results are there, the community is there, the positivity is there.”

It’s safe to say her clients agreed.  In her first month as a FASTer Way to Fat Loss Certified Coach, Le made $10,000!  That’s incredible by any standards.

After watching just one video of my live videos talking about the FASTer Way, Le said she was hooked.  It wasn’t just about the program though, it was also the integrity and the power of the people surrounding the program. “At that point, I decided to take my business to another level, not only for the financial freedom but to be able to offer something to my clients that they had been missing.”

I caught up with Le recently to chat about her experience with the FASTer Way, and I could feel her excitement!  One of my personal missions is to equip and empower women to earn significant income to be able to recirculate that money to family, church, and community.  That’s exactly what Le has done. She said, “This has allowed me the financial freedom to do things I haven’t been able to do before. I took eight clients in prep week to dinner and it felt amazing to say, ‘This is on me.’ I bought some of my most active clients a special necklace.  I love being able to do this—I’ve never been able to do it before.” But it goes beyond that. Le went on to say, “This has allowed me to be more of a partner in our family. There is peace that comes with the additional finances in our family.”

One of my favorite things Le mentioned is that people in her FASTer Way groups will see her kids and stop them and say, “Your mom is changing my life!” or even that she’s been a great influence, or that she’s doing great things.  What a powerful example she’s setting!

In the next five years, Le wants to take her family to Ireland for a month so her kids can really experience a different culture, visit family, and receive the kind of education you simply can’t get when you stay too close to home.

But beyond her personal goals, Le wants to touch the lives of every single person she can possibly reach.  Of course, she wants to help more clients reach their fitness goals, but she also wants to help other struggling entrepreneurs reach their business goals because “We work like dogs… and we never have anything to show for it. I want to share this with other people.  It’s the first time I’ve felt confident and fine with anybody telling me no.” What a gift to be able to let go of the pressure and stress so many people feel to turn every single person into a client!

I asked Le, “What would you say to someone if they knew that this was the right thing for them but needed some advice?”

She actually responded with some questions of her own.

  • You have everything to gain... what do you have to lose?

  • Do you want to help somebody?  

  • Do you want to make a difference in someone’s life?

  • Do you want to be selfless and share something this valuable (that has morphed not just my body, but my relationships with others)?

She added, “Move forward. There is not one single thing to lose.  The investment can be made back so quickly if you believe this and if you love it and if you’re passionate about it.”  That summed it up well, but then she added one more statement that I couldn’t keep to myself.

“If you don’t share, you’re keeping a secret and that’s just rude.”  I think you can see why we love Le! 😂 And we couldn’t agree more.

Although we are selective about the coaches who join the FASTer Way, we don’t want to keep this a secret!  If you’re ready to level up your health and your business, then be sure to get your name on the waitlist now!

A perfect example is our very own FASTer Way to Fat Loss Marketing Director Lindsey Murray.  She lives in Florida near the area affected by Hurricane Michael. She wanted to do something to help.  She felt called to do something beyond donating money, so she got to work!

She utilized her gift of teaching to offer an online class on a donation-only basis.  As of this writing, she has raised nearly $8,000! She received donations from many people, but much of that was raised by members of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss family, especially the Coach Community.  

She used these donations to buy much-needed fuel, supplies, and necessities for the linemen and those displaced. She bought locks and tarps so people could secure their generators and items in their homes. Lindsey and her husband took 2 truckloads of food, clothes, goods, and supplies to people who needed it most.

The most important donation came in the form of fuel. A local business owner built 3 large diesel fuel tanks, knowing that many people would need gas to power generators, chainsaws, tractors, skid steers, etc.  Lindsey has been able to purchase the gas to fill these tanks with more plans to purchase additional fuel, deliver food, clothes, blankets, and toys to displaced families living in tents.

I am truly inspired by this incredible act of generosity, not just from Lindsey, but from everyone who donated to support her idea and further her cause.  Incredible!


Our coaches are consistently inspiring each other as well. We celebrate our wins every Friday in our coach community, and oftentimes they will share their excitement over the generous donations they’re able to make. Here are just a few examples of the impact our coaches are making!

  • Melissa Mattingly said, “My biggest win was donating 15% of my earnings so far to a nonprofit group in KY called Carin for Nurses!”

  • Stacy Davis said, “I was able to donate to TWO of my clients’ nonprofit organizations! Makes my heart feel so good to give back to what they believe in! One being a local pregnancy crisis center and the other a cancer benefit for a young girl—they ride bikes across the country to raise money and spread awareness! So awesome! Thank you, Amanda Tress and team, for giving me this opportunity!”

  • Adrian Mamikonian shared, “My biggest win will be later today when I announce I’ll be donating 50% of my commission from my next round to Girls on the Run, an organization I’m involved in as a coach and a parent. I’ve also done an interview for them on how the program has given consistency and confidence to my daughter as we move with the Navy. They are so grateful and have agreed to do a Live video with me to share about GOTR and how our values are sooo similar! Let’s start building our girls up EARLY!”

  • Shannon Hyem said she’s, “...making a donation from my first round to the local tennis team for a summer camp they wouldn’t have been able to fund! Life is fantastic!!”

DSC_1238.JPG

This is such a powerful win-win-win situation and I am truly inspired with each and every win I read!  Our coaches are having a real impact. They are creating change in the world, and it’s not just benefiting the people they’re helping… it’s incredible for our coaches as well!

Ashley Johnson has been able to give more than just money to help her favorite cause.  She said, “I’ve been able to give back to my community with my earnings from my first round! I chose to give not just a monetary donation to the EMMA House, but also donate my time because, oddly enough, I have a bit of that to give these days. The EMMA House is a Christian-based house for homeless pregnant women or women fleeing from domestic violence. I am also a car seat technician and I have offered to volunteer my time to do a car seat safety presentation. What a great feeling to give back!”

It’s so exciting to see our coaches give to their favorite community organizations, but we also love seeing them donate to their churches and even their friends’ religious endeavors.

Robyn Lee told us, “I have a friend going on a mission trip. She helped spread the word about the program and I loved being able to donate $75/person who signed up to her trip. Generosity is probably my top favorite thing about being a coach with this program. Amanda is a great example of what she has done for us as coaches. Pass it along.”

If you’d like to see what this movement is all about, join the coach waitlist to be notified of our next Sneak Peek event!  Lives are being changed in so many exciting ways.

What will YOU do to make a difference?

Coach Leadership Retreat and Updates

*Disclaimer: results may vary.

What a powerful week it has been! There are so many exciting things happening with the FASTer Way to Fat Loss Program and Community. I recently had the opportunity to host an incredible group of passionate women for a coach leadership retreat at my home in Florida. During the retreat we set goals and strategized ways to ELEVATE the program and client experience.

During the event we announced the September Top FWTFL Coach, Loren Mattingly. Since becoming a FASTer Way Coach in early 2018, Loren has been able to step down from her full-time career to focus on coaching clients through the FASTer Way.

AT Loren.jpg

This is what Loren had to say after attending the FASTer Way Coach Leadership Retreat,  “I am still on cloud N I N E and ready to conquer the world after an insanely powerful weekend at the FASTer Way to Fat Loss Coach Leadership Retreat. Thank you to Amanda, Lindsey, Morgan, and the rockstar coaches who attended the leadership event. EACH and every one of you have inspired me to do GREAT things and believe anything is possible.

I work alongside women who TRULY live their lives and run their businesses with integrity, excellence, generosity, BOLD action. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity this past weekend to be a part of something so moving & inspiring.

This community is changing thousands of men and women’s lives. ❤️

I am thrilled to help women and men become the BEST version of themselves & live their lives with a sense of passion and fulfillment.

I am determined to empower women to realize their greatest potential and dream big without fear of failure.

And this is just the beginning. 🚀❤️”

There is no doubt that the FASTer Way to Fat Loss Coach Certification is the most important thing happening in the wellness industry today. This opportunity is exclusive for women and men who are passionate about the FASTer Way and want to make real money as a fitness and nutrition professional. This year alone, we have coaches who have stepped down from their full time jobs since starting the coach cert, and several who have stepped into leadership roles as Premier Coaches since May and started to earn up to $1k in passive revenue per week. This doesn’t include their own commissions and scalable revenue.

The earning potential as a FASTer Way to Fat Loss® Coach is exponential.  I am on target for a six figure income this year!
— Vivian Gill

I am sick and tired of hearing from women who are grinding in a full-time job outside of the home or hustling in the gym trading dollars for hours... and barely getting by.  I understand because I was in the same place 7.5 years ago when I was working 70+ hours per week (web marketing, gym clients, online training, MLMs) and making $35,000 (before taxes). I barely saw baby Emma and was constantly sick and tired. I knew God had destined me for MORE and given me a unique ability to earn significant income to recirculate my wealth to my family, church and community. Only after taking a leap of faith and stepping down from my full time job did I have the chance to fulfill my purpose rooted in unique spiritual goals—with the FASTer Way. Now I have the incredible opportunity to empower other women to earn real money of their own with select top FWTFL coaches and affiliates earning over $35,000 PER MONTH.

Our coaches run their lives and businesses with our core values: integrity, excellence, generosity, and bold action. They not only earn significant income, they GIVE BACK to their OWN families, churches, and communities in generous ways. I am extremely blessed and grateful for my opportunity to guide this rocket ship and could not be more proud of my rockstar coach family. It’s time to ERADICATE poverty for female entrepreneurs in the wellness industry.

New FASTer Way to Fat Loss® Supplement Line

jessica-to-oto-o-591732-unsplash-2.jpg

Supplements are a hot topic in the health industry, but do you really need them if you eat a whole food diet?  Whole foods are filled with micronutrients, after all, so won’t a varied diet nourish you properly?

Surprisingly, most people—even those “eating the rainbow”—are NOT consuming adequate amounts of all the nutrients our bodies need.  It’s a real challenge because we simply can’t spend hours every day meticulously planning our meals and snacks around the micronutrient composition.  Most people are doing great if they can just track their macros!

Maybe you’ve heard that supplements are a waste of money because so many of them are low quality and mostly fillers.  That’s exactly why thousands of my clients ask for supplement recommendations with each and every round of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss.  

While there are some great brands out there, I wanted to give my clients the convenience to access high quality supplements, instead of sending them all over the internet looking for products.  

Now, let’s address the elephant in the room.  You’ve heard me say that the FASTer Way to Fat Loss is the best program on the market, and one reason is that we do NOT require any pills, wraps, or shakes to do the program and see phenomenal results.  That hasn’t changed.  These supplements are NOT required to have amazing success.  We simply want to serve our clients better by offering what they’re asking for.  This way we can offer incredible products, ensure the highest quality, and meet our clients’ needs at a higher level.

Our supplement line, in partnership with Stephen Cabral and Equilibrium Nutrition, is the best on the market.  We chose to work with Stephen Cabral because he is an industry leader in real health and wellness, utilizing safe, natural, holistic methods for helping patients all over the world.  His philosophies match up with ours at the FASTer Way to Fat Loss, so partnering to create a high quality supplement line was a natural fit.


The FASTer Way to Fat Loss supplements are now available, and we can’t wait for our clients to experience the highest quality micronutrients available outside of whole foods.

Our list of supplements includes:


You won’t find a better supplement line anywhere.  We are passionate about offering only the best products and programs to our clients, so we are thrilled to offer the FASTer Way nutritional products and supplements.  We can’t wait to hear what you think!

What Makes The FASTer Way to Fat Loss Different?

20180226_2573.JPG

*Disclaimer: results may vary.

I know you’ve seen the advertisements everywhere... Join this program, it’ll change your life!  Sign up for that new diet, it’s guaranteed to work!  Join this new studio for mind-blowing results! So when you heard about the FASTer Way to Fat Loss you couldn’t help but wonder how it’s different from every other program offering the same thing—real health and better fitness.  

But… is it really better? Faster? More complete?

I’ll level with you.  The FASTer Way to Fat Loss is the best program on the market today, but it’s not just the workouts and nutrition that make it better (although you won’t find our cutting-edge strategies anywhere else).  What it boils down to, strange as it may sound, is the core values we live and promote in the FASTer Way to Fat Loss community.

At the FASTer Way, we firmly believe in equipping and empowering as many people as possible to enjoy their BEST health, be their BEST selves, and truly make the world a BETTER place.  We see mothers stepping out of overwhelm, better able to care for themselves and their families. We see grandparents that finally have the energy to enjoy adventures with their grandkids.  We see coaches who are helping people achieve the best health of their lives while creating an income that supports their families and helps them create a life of their dreams.

And all of this is built on the foundation of our four core values: Bold Action, Integrity, Excellence, and Generosity.  Each one has a very important role in our company, and these values are what truly set us apart from every other program out there!

Bold Action

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss is the premier virtual Intermittent Fasting nutrition and fitness program.  While Intermittent Fasting isn’t new, there are many approaches to practicing “IF.” But (and this is a big but), there are only a few strategies for safely incorporating fasting without having a detrimental effect on hormones. Having consulted with naturopathic physicians, dietitians—and having studied nutrition myself—I created a program that doesn’t focus solely on food or fitness, but instead marries the two in a way that optimizes thyroid function, works with underlying health issues (instead of just making them worse), and specifically targets holistic health.

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss is an eight-week program, and we encourage clients to participate in the membership to fully implement the lifestyle. During the first round, clients are introduced to Intermittent Fasting, Carb Cycling, and whole food nutrition, and taught how to pair it all with a truly unique workout cycle.  Clients are not only taught to eat the right foods at the right time and for the right reasons, but to maximize it through highly effective exercise that give truly amazing results.

It takes eight weeks to really understand and implement the strategies, so we encourage clients to take advantage of the membership to really solidify their new habits and practice what they’ve learned (and grown to love!). This membership truly turns it into a lifestyle.

What is the membership? Each month we dive into a different health-related topic and invite our FASTer Way mentors (specializing in health/hormones, nutrition, and fitness), guest specialists, and industry leaders to give us insight into their areas of expertise. Our clients absolutely THRIVE in this incredibly supportive community. Not only are these clients reaching their health and wellness goals, preventing disease, and fulfilling their purpose, they are connecting with each other, cheering for wins, supporting through trials, and learning and growing together.  It’s a true community filled with friendship and value.

IMG_1449.HEIC.jpeg

Integrity

While so many in the health and wellness industry are out to become a household name, our business model is aimed at spreading a wealth of knowledge to communities, churches, families, and friends. Our goal is for the FASTer Way to Fat Loss to be an online community that provides immense value to physical communities. We don’t require clients to purchase any additional products to fully participate in the program, and we genuinely want every single person to take this program and create a sustainable lifestyle that will help individuals AND families.

The way we measure success speaks to what we truly value.  The FASTer Way teaches clients to ditch the scale because the number on the scale does little more than tell you your relationship with gravity. Instead, we look at what defines true health.  How energized do you feel?  Are you sleeping 8 hours and feeling rested?  How hydrated are you? What are your blood panel results like?  Do you know your cortisol number? What’s your thyroid function like?  

Discovering how much these questions (and their answers) matter helps our clients learn what real health FEELS like.  Our clients have discovered how to build fat-burning muscle and optimize their body’s systems. In fact, we talk a lot about fat and muscle in the program, but we move past the “weight” conversation. We celebrate non-scale victories, and discover that health is so much more than what we’ve been taught to believe.

IMG_1426.HEIC.jpeg

Excellence

At the FASTer Way to Fat Loss we are passionate about providing the highest level of quality and excellence to each and every one of our clients. My team and our community of certified coaches are highly skilled, passionate about the clients we serve, and committed to providing the best possible experience for everyone who is introduced to our brand.

Because of overwhelming interest in participating in the FASTer Way on a deeper level, we have developed a coaching certification program. This allows fitness and health professionals to spread the FASTer Way to their own clients and communities. The FASTer Way to Fat Loss certification is accredited by two of the largest sports science associations in the United States (NASM and AFAA).

As the program grows, we have begun holding coach recruiting events to simplify the process of explaining the coach opportunity and offering clients a chance to start the interview process.  We receive hundreds of applications, but we accept only a limited number. We have a thorough screening process and we strive to make sure that only those who are genuinely passionate about the program and are capable of effectively coaching others are certified as FASTer Way to Fat Loss Coaches.

Here at the FASTer Way, we value loyalty.  Once a client joins with a coach, they will stay with that coach for the duration of their program experience.  In other words, we do not allow coach swapping. This removes any element of competition within our coach community, and deepens our commitment to providing the best possible experience for each client.  Our coaches receive regular trainings and updates, and are given all the tools they need to succeed...which only helps our clients succeed.

We aren’t just thinking about our own clients when we look at the bigger picture.  We are thinking about the community at large, which is why we track (and cap) the number of coaches in each region.  We are aware that a lot of excitement about any program or product can fatigue any audience, so we work to prevent anyone from growing weary of “yet another one of those sales pitches.”  We truly want our community to be a positive experience for everyone who encounters it, whether they join or not.

IMG_5328 2.jpeg

Generosity

The ultimate goal of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss is not to make clients dependent on the program to maintain results or health. Instead, clients are empowered with strategies to create their own sustainable, healthy lifestyles.  Most of them are so passionate about the program that they can’t wait to share it with others they think would benefit as well.

Because we are equally passionate about creating win-win-win situations, clients can join our affiliate opportunity. Once they apply to become an affiliate after completing the program, they’re given an exclusive link to share with friends and family.  Affiliates earn a very generous commission, we are introduced to a new group of clients, and even more people change their health (and their lives!).  It’s a powerful win for everyone!

We look for wins everywhere, so my team works specifically to support our certified coaches for their best possible success. We offer a coach mentorship package to teach them business and marketing strategies to effectively scale their businesses.

At the FWTFL we live and encourage a culture of giving. Our company recently made a donation to a charitable organization for their exciting new initiative to further support cancer patients.  We, as a company and coach community, were touched by this experienced and inspired to continue.

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss is truly unique in our mission, our values, and our passion.  We want each and every client to experience incredible health and optimal fitness—without the restrictions, fads, or runaround that are so prevalent. To start your journey to a FASTer Way Lifestyle, and experience the program that is truly like no other, join our next round here: www.fasterwaytofatloss.com.

The FASTest Way To Success!​​​​​​​

ali brown amanda.jpeg

*Disclaimer: results may vary.

What do fitness, twins, and entrepreneurship have in common?  From the sound of it, not much, but if you ask Ali Brown, she’ll tell you that they have everything to do with each other!

Let me explain.  

My dear friend and business coach Ali Brown had never heard of me or the FASTer Way to Fat Loss before I approached her last year about becoming a business coaching client.  (Ali is an incredible business mind… she has been featured on CNN.com, Forbes.com, Inc.com, Entrepreneur.com, Business News Daily, The Huffington Post, Smart Business Los Angeles, and many more!)

Interestingly, she had never heard of Intermittent Fasting, but when she saw the explosive growth of the FASTer Way, she was definitely intrigued!  

It wasn’t just the business end of the FASter Way that got her attention, it was the  nutrition strategies as well. Ali had given birth to twins and, despite her background and passion for fitness, she wasn’t able to lose the pregnancy weight.  Ali says, “Since having my twins, I kind of settled into my new weight, thinking I would have to suffer incredibly to get back to my previous size, so I wasn’t interested in any of it.”

She decided to try some of the FASTer Way strategies and after two weeks she could already tell a difference.  Three months into it, she’d lost 25 pounds. She realized that she didn’t have to suffer in order to reach her goals!  That’s the magic of the FASTer Way, it’s accessible to everyone and the lifestyle is completely sustainable!

The FASTer Way was helping thousands of women become super fat burners by way of a proprietary system that combines intermittent fasting with Paleo eating, carb cycling, and rotating workouts (even for beginners). If it sounds intimidating, it was at first. But even doing most of the recommendations — I literally saw my body changing in the first two weeks! And I’m still going strong.
— ALI BROWN

You can hear more about Ali’s incredible story in our podcast interview.  It was such an honor to be on her show, and I’d love for you to listen!

Ali and I will hold a special Zoom meeting (listen to the podcast for all the details!), so be sure to register so you can join us.  Together, Ali and I will answer your questions so you can jumpstart your new health journey!  You’ll leave this meeting excited and inspired and ready to CRUSH your goals!

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss is spreading quickly because once our clients experience incredible results through this sustainable lifestyle, they’re hooked and can’t get enough!  Not only that, our clients love to talk about how they did it and how others can see the same amazing results.

Even bloggers are jumping in with both feet and sharing what they love so much about the program!  I am truly honored and humbled each time someone shares the FASTer Way to Fat Loss, and I never get tired of seeing the amazing success my clients are having!

It’s not just the fat loss that gets me so excited, it’s the non-scale victories.  When my clients tell me they finally have the energy to play with their kids or grandkids, they’re fitting into clothes they never thought they’d wear again, they’re discovering a liberating new way to eat, and especially that they feel like themselves again… I feel so much gratitude!  I absolutely love hearing that my clients are doing such amazing things and living life the way they truly want to live it!

Have you ever had questions about the FWTFL?  Maybe you’ve wondered...

  • I'm busy/have toddlers/work a lot/have health issues/travel for work/etc... will this program work for me?

  • Is there a meal plan that I need to follow with this program?

  • What exactly is the membership? If you can 'learn' the program in one session why pay for ongoing coaching?

  • Are treats, ice cream, sugar, wine, and beer out forever? What about dairy and gluten?

If you’re thinking, “I don’t need to sign up for this, I’m doing great on my current plan!,” then you might want to check out what Amy from A Cup Full of Sass has to say: “...before starting this program I thought I was in really good shape. I was eating healthy and working out at least 3 days a week. It wasn’t until starting this program that I realized I wasn’t at all what I thought I was.” I hear this all. the. time. from my clients.  They discover a whole new level of fitness they didn’t know they could achieve!

bloggers.002.jpeg

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss isn’t a quick-fix gimmick that will depress hormone function, mess with your insulin, and end with rebound weight gain.  It’s not a diet or a calorie-restriction plan. It’s a lifestyle that will actually improve your health as you lose fat and weight. Since it’s a lifestyle, not a quick fix, you can keep it up forever without feeling deprived or frustrated!  Click here for more information or to register for the next round!  Better health starts now, join us to accelerate your success AND your health!

And it’s not just my younger clients like Jill and Amy.  It works just as well if you’re a little more “seasoned” than the average client.  Beth is the perfect example! At age 59 she decided to give herself the gift of health and wanted to be in the best shape of her life by the time she turned 60.  She has done AMAZING things, so be sure to check out what she thinks about the program and see if she’s reached her goal!

Our FASTer Way to Fat Loss coaches get certified because they’re passionate about the program and want to share better health with others, but they love coaching the FASTer Way because it provides so much more than just a paycheck.  

FASTer Way coaches aren’t simply getting certified and then running a solo operation.  Our coaches are joining a supportive team that not only helps them grow their business, but is there to answer questions, offer advice, and provide a space where coaches connect as colleagues.  Many of our coaches have formed strong friendships with each other, and we LOVE seeing them meet up and expand their influence!

The FWTFL team works hard to ensure that we have all the tools we need to succeed as a coach, and is quick to help and encourage us when we need it.
— Christy Cabán

We absolutely do! I truly believe this is the most powerful way to change the world—to equip and empower people to earn a significant income that they can recirculate to family, church, and community.

Just this year alone, I have been able to reach over 1000 women all over the world.

Being a FWTFL Coach has provided financial freedom. In this last year I have 10X my business and it continues to grow. I am so excited for what the future holds.

It brings me so much joy and purpose.
— Jenny Mire

One of the core values of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss is generosity, and we take it seriously.  We truly want to change the world by allowing more people to be generous themselves, and support other businesses.  That’s why we offer an incredible compensation package that is truly changing lives!

In less than two months, I earned back my coaching certification investment. I have been able to bring over 50 clients through the FASTer Way to Fat Loss program and have seen these clients achieve amazing results. I have gained an increased knowledge of digital marketing, especially within the social media platforms. I have also increased my confidence as a personal trainer with my new training and skills acquired as being a part of the FWTFL program. I have also seen significant financial gains that help allow me to stay home with my two boys.
— Marissa Corra

Coach Spotlight - Krystal Jones

31530554_1850641938329099_5920227206214189056_n.jpg

*Disclaimer: results may vary.

We are constantly amazed at the coaches in our FASTer Way to Fat Loss® community.  The hard work, the dedication, the passion...we are so inspired every day by what these women are doing!

One of the best things about our certified coaching opportunity is that you DON’T have to wait years before you start seeing big growth in your business. Did you know that most small businesses aren’t actually profitable in the first year? In fact, it typically takes the average business 2-3 years to reach profitability.  Our coaches make a small investment and almost immediately start seeing a big return!

We’re SO inspired by Krystal Jones, a certified coach who joined us earlier this year.  Just a few months after certification, she made back more than 3x her investment! Krystal said, “I have made over $10k! Yes, ya heard that right! In two rounds, I've made over $10K. Never anticipated to make back the investment so quickly.”

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss program is changing our clients’ health, but the FASTer Way to Fat Loss certification is changing our coaches’ lives.  And that’s exactly why we get up in the morning!

Listen to what Krystal has to say about it!

Let me tell you, I wake up DAILY with this massive desire to do my job!  Nothing dreadful about it. My job has complete purpose, regardless of the money attached.  THAT is everything. I am held more accountable myself, and I LOVE that. I want excellence in my own health and wellness. NOT perfection, excellence. Being saturated in this lifestyle DAILY helps me make significant growth in my own education about what is BEST for my body.

When Krystal first joined the FWTFL as a client, she “LOVED” how empowered, educated and in control she felt. And she wanted to SHARE that with women everywhere.

Now, as a coach, Krystal says, “More than ANYTHING, I have helped EACH woman that I've trained grow either physically, mentally, or emotionally. I couldn't have done this without the FWTFL, without the team, without the coach group page. Endless amounts of gratitude.”

When we asked Krystal to describe the coaching community, she used these words:

  • Supportive

  • Understanding

  • Like-minded

  • Passionate

The best thing about this list is that these are the same traits Krystal (and all of our coaches!) brings to the table.  

These are strong, passionate women who come together to lift, support, cheer, help and connect with each other.  We have ZERO competition in our community because we’re careful to bring coaches in who share our abundance mentality.  This is completely unique in the fitness industry. We help each other succeed rather than see each other as competitors.

FASTer Way to Fat Loss® Reviews

*Disclaimer: results may vary.

You keep hearing about the FASTer Way to Fat Loss, but you’re not really sure what it is.  Well, my friend, it’s time to clear things up! Check out these FASTer Way to Fat Loss reviews. 

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss is the premier online fasting nutrition and fitness program, and it’s taking the industry by storm!  The FASTer Way is endorsed by doctors, nurses, personal trainers, nutritionists, health advocates, fitness enthusiasts, and people who have tried every diet/challenge/fix/bet/obsession out there.  It’s not JUST because people are finally meeting their weight loss goals, but also because they are finally learning how to get—and stay—truly healthy.

“I have tried just about every program on the market. This is the only program I have ever found that creates a sustainable lifestyle without sacrificing results OR quality of life, for that matter! I have lost 24.5 INCHES and 13 pounds in 19 weeks! If you are debating whether or not it’s worth it, without a doubt, the answer is YES!”

So many programs are just a temporary “fix” that might work for a few weeks, but really aren’t sustainable—which means any results you get really aren’t either.  That’s where the FASTer Way is different.  You’ll learn a new way to eat, a new way to exercise, and a new way to live your very best life!

“I was such a skeptic going into the FWTFL! Even though many of my trusted friends had done it with success, I thought the program was asking too much and that I wouldn't be able to stick with it. I was simply afraid to fail! I was so wrong. I loved every aspect of what was asked of me...probably because there was no deprivation. I was actually often eating more food!

Going into it, I was especially afraid of intermittent fasting, but it was way more doable than I thought (previously being a total "breakfast revs up your metabolism" believer). It actually increased my energy and productivity, and combined with carb cycling, took all the guesswork out of how I should properly fuel my body.

I gained so much confidence in myself! And the workouts correlating directly to the daily nutrition provided motivation to do them since I was trying to eat the right foods, and vice versa. I had never been able to stay committed to an at-home strength training plan, but loved this one and looked forward to it...even after starting back to work and juggling the kiddos and activities! I have a 3-month-old who is exclusively breastfed, and my milk never dipped one bit (which was a huge goal of mine, to maintain my supply)! I also lost 15 inches and nearly all of my baby weight, but truly, the non-scale victories are equally rewarding for me!

I've found a new lifestyle that I love, that gives me confidence and faith in all that I can achieve when I put my mind to it!!!”

 

This is EXACTLY why we wake up in the morning.  We want everyone to gain the confidence Melissa did.  You CAN get healthy. You CAN lose fat. You CAN feel like you again.  The FASTer Way to Fat Loss is helping people everywhere achieve their goals.  

But it’s not just weight loss goals.  Here at the FASTer Way, we are truly humbled to see lives changing in so many incredible ways.  Like this FASTer Way to Fat Loss review, Michelle sums up what we hear all. the. time. from women in all kinds of different life situations:

"Managing financial boundaries for my family, working full time, prepping meals for my kids and squeezing in 3 workout classes a week—my life was already FULL. Was I ready to invest $200 and do more food prep? I expected to be overwhelmed.

What I found instead, was a giant sense of empowerment to be an equal priority in my own life.

I didn't even realize the extent to which I had been letting myself come last (and feeling resentful of everyone else for it). Each week has been a new victory—the bloat melting off the first week, skin improving the next, today my HAIR is even better.

The best part is that putting myself first through this has NOT been a burden on my family or anyone else—the thing I was most afraid of. Much the opposite, I'm a happier me with MORE energy, MORE patience, BETTER time management. And having healthier food choices available to me has meant having them more available to my whole family. I'm so excited to use what I am learning to help my entire family be healthier and happier from now on.

I so wish I had done this sooner; I really cannot thank you enough. 🙏🏼💛”

 We have seen more than 100,000 client trust the FASTer Way process and literally change their lives.

Intermittent Fasting: Fad or Fact?

Intermittent Fasting isn’t a new concept, but it’s a fast-growing trend in both the health and fitness industries.  The physical results are impressive, but when you look at the health benefits, it’s no wonder everyone is getting on board with this strategy!


The act of fasting, or abstaining from food for a set time, is an ancient practice. Indeed it is still an important part of many cultures and religions today. It is used for bringing mental focus and spiritual clarity. However, fasting specifically for physical health, is a relatively new concept and it’s spreading fast because the results speak for themselves.  


After learning about the idea of Intermittent Fasting for fitness reasons, I decided to start trying it out 3 years ago. I experimented with different protocols and strategies to see what truly gave the best results without compromising health or safety.  I dialed in what was working best for myself and my clients; the results have been absolutely incredible!


Intermittent Fasting isn’t complicated, but many people simply aren’t sure what it is or the right way to do it. With the rising popularity of “IF” (as it’s referred to in the industry) has also come misinformation, and a lack of specific training in how to follow a healthy Intermittent Fasting strategy.

Coach Spotlight - Emily Copeland

*Disclaimer: results may vary.

Working with the FASTer Way to Fat Loss coaching community has been absolutely incredible because of the diverse and insanely talented group of women with whom I’m privileged to work.  They all bring something unique to the table, and getting to know them is one of the best parts of my job. One of these amazing coaches is Emily!

Emily Copeland is a FASTer Way to Fat Loss certified coach, a busy mom of 4, and a sign language interpreter.  Her mission is to empower women to take control of their health and wellness in order to create a healthy, sustainable lifestyle for themselves AND their families!  In addition to coaching, Emily is a sign language interpreter and works for a local video relay company. She is a CODA (child of a deaf adult) and absolutely loves the deaf culture, so she is thrilled to bring coaching to hearing and deaf clients alike.

She loves working with women to help them lose weight, learn how to exercise properly, gain confidence, and transform their lives.

Emily had to deal with some health issues last year that led her to strengthen her resolve to take better care of herself.  She found the FASTer Way to Fat Loss and was hooked after her first round. She did a second round, this time with her husband joining the men’s group, and the rest is history!  She completed her coach certification and has been running FASTer Way groups ever since.

 

Emily told me, “Becoming a coach for the FASTer Way to Fat Loss has transformed my life. Not only does it allow me to earn significant income for my family, but it allows me to share my passion for health and wellness.  The coaching community is extremely supportive and the certification process left me feeling empowered to set big goals and then crush them! The FASTer Way has allowed my husband to pursue his own goals which will bring huge changes for us in 2018, but without the income from running my own groups, it would never have been possible!”

 

One of the most valuable things Emily gained from the FASTer Way was an understanding of what her “healthy” habits were doing to her.  She was under-eating, over-exercising, and doing more harm than good in the process. She was able to gain sustainable nutrition strategies, a sustainable mindset, plus a better understanding of what real health is.  The focus on non-scale victories has, “helped me to achieve things I would have never thought possible!”

One of my favorite parts of Emily’s story is what she has to say about the change in her income!

 “I set some big goals for earning this year, but Q1 has already blown those out of the water. Being a FASTer Way Coach has given us the opportunity to make some career changes with confidence and security and allowed us to not only increase our income, but stop living month-to-month as well. We have been able to close our gaps toward financial freedom and look forward to what 2018 brings the rest of the year!”

Seeing women like Emily achieve big goals is the reason I get up every morning.  Are you ready to change your life through coaching certification? The FASTer Way community is growing quickly, and if you’d like to attend our next Live Coach Information Event, get on the waitlist now!
