I’d like to share a client success story with you from my client Stephanie who is one of my EmpowerU online coaching clients, and who I have known for 11 years and who has been my client, collectively for 6 years.

FIRST, Quick reminder that the early bird for my women’s strength workshop, I AM NOT AFRAID TO LIFT®, BOSTON ends THIS Sunday April 28. After that, the price will go up $100. Details and sign up links at the end of this post…

NOW, onto the subject of this post, which many of you may be able to relate to, “I WANT TO FEEL GOOD IN SHORTS AGAIN”.

Meet my client Stephanie. I have known Stephanie for 11 years and she has been my client, collectively, for 6 years. I met my her in 2008 when I first transitioned to fitness full-time and was working in a commercial gym in Northern Virginia. She attended both my kettlebell small group training and spin classes.

In 2009 I left the DC/NoVA area to move back to my hometown of Boston. Stephanie and I stayed in touch with the occasional email and then she reached out to me in 2014 to inquire about Distance Coaching with me. Originally she was going to commit to only 1 year of Distance Coaching, but that year has turned into 5 years and she has stuck with it and been training with me ever since. She even attended my women’s strength workshop I Am Not Afraid To Lift® in 2015 at Drive495 in NYC which is when this picture was taken.

Stephanie is now married and a mom of a 16 month old daughter and lives in Omaha, Nebraska. When I launched my EmpowerU program in February she transitioned from 1/1 online strength programming and coaching to EmpowerU which includes everything – strength training, nutrition and mindset.

When she signed up for EmpowerU one of her goals was to feel good in shorts again. Last August 2018 she confessed that she was at her heaviest weight and at that time started to make changes to lose weight. With this, in December 2018 we set a strength goal for her to train and complete StrongFirst Simple which helped for her to work towards a specific strength goal.

In March, after only 4 weeks of the EmpowerU program she reached her goal of fitting into the specific pair of shorts that she wanted to feel good in again and now in April, after 7 weeks of the EmpowerU program, she’s down 9lbs and in a great routine with her training and nutrition.

The majority of the time the biggest WINS come with the most simple goals like wanting to feel good wearing shorts again. The goal doesn’t have to be, nor should it be, to look like a physique competitor. YES, it’s OK to have aesthetic goals, but set realistic simple goals and you will have the biggest wins.
