What Makes You Happy?
“You only live once.”
How are you pursuing happiness with the one life you get to live?
When I went all-in with our business, it was the scariest move I could ever have made but it was the best decision of my life.
It allows me to do what I love, with the people that I love, and the freedom to pick my kids up at school a couple days a week.
So tell me, friend, what makes you happy?
2023 KickStart Crew
Normally I take down the volume and add some jazzy music for your viewing pleasure but I thought you would enjoy are real and raw look at the coaching you can expect in our training program.
This video was filmed this past Saturday at the kickoff of our KickStart Program in Bangor.
We are so very excited to have the opportunity to work with this incredible group of people and we are so very happy to be able to support them every step of the way as they commit to health and fitness.
If I could offer my best advice to this new group, it would be to give yourself the grace to be a beginner.
You don't need to be perfect or even good at anything in the beginning but you do need to keep showing up and commit to the process of learning above anything else.
What is your best advice to anyone that is new getting started in a training program?

He walked into the office just as I was saying: "Is that helpful, or do you want to punch me in the face now."
It was a real question and I wasn't sure of her response.
I was on a Success Session zoom call and I was challenging a limiting belief of one of our KickStarters.
She had the belief that the 'finish line' was so far away that she would never get there.
She was holding herself to an impossible standard.
She would only ever be all in or not at all.
I told her that she didn't need to think like that. I told her that if she wanted to be successful with health and fitness long-term she needed to stop comparing herself to others and start celebrating every single success.
Start celebrating every bottle of water, every time she meal preps, every time she registers for training sessions, every time she pulls up to the gym parking lot and walks through the front doors.
I told her to celebrate listening to her body and taking a break in the training sessions when she felt like it was too much. I told her to celebrate getting back to the work after a rest.
I told her that there is no finish line... ever. That we need to find a way to enjoy the journey and celebrate the habits that are going to make us successful for a lifetime.
I told her that it was her mindset around the finish line and the impossible standards that she was holding herself to that were holding her back.
Bottom line - it is your mindset that is the make it or break it when it comes to being successful with health and fitness long term. That is why we work on nurturing a healthy positive mindset so much in our training programs.
After a long pause... she confirmed that the tough love was helpful. I was able to let the breath out that I was holding in.
This is one of my absolute favorite quotes. I have come back to it several times in my life - in big life transitions and in the small decisions that create character. I love that it points out that there is no perfect time to start. That we can start anytime. And that life is way too short not to start right now in this very moment. So - tell me something you’re starting, friend... ready or not!
We talk a lot about building more energy into your life – the kind of energy that helps you power through your days feeling great!
But there’s one way to get more energy I have to bring up because I see it at work EVERY single day.
It’s the people you surround yourself with.
Having a strong support system can truly be a gamechanger in your success.
Because not only do you get encouragement and support, but you’re able to give it to others … just like jumping higher on a trampoline and that’s incredibly rewarding!
Here are just a few benefits of having a strong support network:
