How do I lose weight quickly?

It’s the question I’m asked most often as a personal trainer and fitness professional.

In general, advertised fad diets, weight-loss drugs and miracle technologies are hardly ever successful in helping shed unwanted pounds.  Especially if you want to keep the weight off!

I’ve worked in the fitness sector for nearly 30 years and helped hundreds of women of all ages build strong and fit bodies. My 3-step weight management plan works every time:
1.       Be committed. Building your best body will take some work and some time.
2.       Eat right. Controlling portion size and eating healthy foods is key to managing weight.
3.       Exercise regularly. Pounds will not fall off without some help.

This sounds really simple, but it can be hard to do by yourself. That’s why FitnessWorks for Women offers the 10-lb Challenge, a personalized weight program that can help you achieve your weight loss goals.  With the support of our all-female fitness crew, you can start building your best body today!

What is an RRFP you ask?  A Registered Retirement Fitness Plan is much like an RRSP.  Owners make regular  contributions to their fitness and build up what is known in the industry as "Fitness Reserves."

Let's look at the similarities:

 1.  The more you contribute, the larger the reserves.
 2.  It's much more effective in smaller, scheduled contributions rather than one lump sum.
 3.  It's never too late or too early to start.
 4.  It's more effective when using an expert in the industry to help you direct your investments.
 5.  The sooner you start, the better off long term: both fitness and finances enjoy the compounding effect.
 6.  Like the immediate tax shelter of the RRSP, you will benefit from immediate increased energy to fuel        your  engines for all the other things you want to do.
