At first I didn't know what to expect. I didn't know anyone who could recommend a nutritionist to me and when I looked online, I became a bit wary of whether or not it would be worth it to seek out a nutritionist on my own. But, not only was Cara accommodating schedule wise--so I could meet with her at a convenient time and location--she also provided me with great information, encouragement and steps I could take in order to further improve my health over time. Definitely glad I scheduled an appointment.
To say the last year of my life has been hectic is an understatement. In October of 09, I lost my dad very unexpectedly. Then, another blow, my mom went in to the hospital for routine surgery and ended up on a ventilator and in ICU just 6 weeks after my dad passed away. After over 2 months in the hospital, she was able to come home with physical therapy and a home health nurse. (Thank God!) After all that, my family was still in the process of running my dads business as we waited for a buyer. Oh, have I mentioned that I have 2 very active boys who play several sports, a full time outside the home job and many other activities that we are involved in? Time for exercise? Um, I dont think so. Fast Food trips? You betcha! Easy, convenient and cooking was one less thing I had to deal with. Plus, I was way too busy to deal with worrying about what I should be eating and how I should be handling stress. If I swept it under the carpet, itll all go away right? Wrong! Exhaustion, illness and a few extra pounds started to sink in. The weather started to change and get warmer. The thought of having to put on a shorts or (gasp!) a swimsuit seemed like a nightmare. All the while complaining to my husband about how I dont have time get everything done in a day let alone ADD a workout. He did his best to still be understanding of what I was going through emotionally and try to help me see that exercise would help. Oh Id take a walk, try to eat a salad here and there. But it didnt really make much of a difference. Then, I saw the lifestyle changes one of my very close friends was making. Brandi was a busy mom and had an amazing transformation! She encouraged me along the way to join her, but I shrugged her off at first. How could I possibly commit to that? Then I saw her final pictures. (phenomenal!!!) It was time to do something for me. I emailed Hitch Fit the following week. I was put in contact with expert trainer James Hanton. He was very professional and agreed to meet with me before I made a decision about my plan or if I even wanted to commit to it. He was very patient and he listened to me. I was embarrassed when he asked me about my eating and exercise habits, but he never flinched or acted like I was doing anything wrong. He just listened. He asked how quickly I wanted to see results. I answered, 12 weeks., half hoping hed tell me that it was impossible. Instead he said, You can do it! After I left the initial consultation, I called my husband. He encouraged me and told me he had my back. You should do it, Andrea and I know you can. I decided to get going right away. No use it putting it off! After my first training session with James, I cried the whole way home. Not so much because I hurt from the pain of working out (well maybe a little bit) but more because I did it! I took the first steps to a healthy lifestyle and I knew from that point on I was 110% committed. After the first couple of weeks of sore muscles, I really started to enjoy the workouts. The designed meal plan was easy to follow and with a few tips from James, I even got a few new recipes to mix it up a bit. James was enthusiastic and positive every step of the way. He was flexible with my schedule if I needed to make a last minute change and he kept me on track and my eye on the prize! There were many times that I didnt think I could lift another pound, do one more push up or hold my position one more second. But I did! Just behind me Id hear Jamess infamous battle cry, GET IT! GET IT! And I pushed harder. I wanted it more and more with every pound I lost. My schedule was and is still crazy. But Ive learned to manage my time better and everything still gets done. And at the end of 12 weeks, there I was, forever changed! I dont think of this as the end of a transformation. Its just the beginning of a new lifestyle for me. I can deal with stress in better ways and make better choices. James, thank you for your encouragement and faith in me! I am truly grateful for all you have done. To my boys, thank you for your patience with me and for never complaining about a trip to the gym or for eating more veggies. (I told you we wouldnt miss pop in the house!) And to my wonderful hubby, I couldnt have done this at all without you. Thanks for making me feel beautiful every step of the way.
I have been working out with Sam for just over 2 years. He is a fun trainer to work with. I like his diversity programming and how he is always challenging me to work harder than I think I am capable of. I have muscle tone that I have never had before and continue to make improvements.
Brendan has been an amazing asset to my life! He takes the time to listen to my goals, find out what may be hindering them, and then focus on how to work around each to meet the goals - heck we even EXCEED my goals each and every time! He applies a holistic coaching approach and gets to know you on an individual level-you are NEVER just a number to him-he truly values your relationship and goals! He has coached and trained me to lose 14% body fat in eight months, and has continued to support any and all new goals! Aside from his nutrition and training knowledge, he is also an extremely personable coach who you will enjoy spending time with!
I’ve been working with Caleb a little over a year now, and have had nothing but great experiences so far. I sought out Caleb to help me with my mentality leading into competitions because I felt like I wasn’t training my mind and giving myself everything I needed, dealing with self doubt and negative emotions after a bad streak I went on. From session one, just listening to how I talk about myself, Or how I carried myself, talking about past experiences, etc., Caleb could immediately pinpoint things I didn’t even notice I was doing, and reframe them in my mind to something that was going to be beneficial to not only my competition, but everyday life. And it did just that, with everything I worked with Caleb it not only has made me feel like everything is coming full circle in In competition, but it has helped in my personal life as well. I’ve realized just as much as you work on the physical side, you have to work just as much on, if not more in the mental side for things to flourish how you would like them to. If you are on the fence, I highly recommend setting a consultation appointment, you’ll be surprise on how much you may be missing just by how you mentally approach everyday life.
After hearing about Custom Fittness Consulting from a friend and reading other reviews, I decided to give the training/diet programs a try to boost my fitness level and get in better shape and CFC did just that. Adam was both encouraging and helpful.. I found the programs easy to follow, but I was still able to step out of my comfort zone by trying new workouts and I began seeing progress within just a few weeks. In the past, it has been difficult for me to eat a balanced diet because I am vegan, which eliminates a lot of foods I can eat.. but Adam was accommodating with my meal plan and made sure I got the right amount of all my macros. Overall, this is a great company and I've had nothing but positive experiences in training with them! They work with people of all levels of fitness and can help you reach any goal you're working towards. If/when I decide to do a fitness show in the future, Adam will be the first one I call!
After meeting with Rebecca I feel more educated and prepared to eat healthier. I have a few medical concerns and pretty extensive prior knowledge because I tried a bunch that didn't work. She stream lined a program for me and made me feel that I have an ally in my weight loss journey.

Life Coaching I can help you create a new future for yourself. Do you want a better job? Do you want to change certain habits? Do you want better relationships with key co-workers, friends, family, partners or spouses? What do you really want from life? I've been doing counseling and life coaching for about 30 years. What I've found in working with clients is that they tend to avoid discomfort and, instead, gravitate to what they know best. I help clients shift their focus. Getting comfortable trying on new behaviors. I help clients to see that the key to success is focusing in on exactly what it is you want and making conscious choices to move toward that vision. It can be difficult sometimes, which is where having a coach to help look at situations and decisions can be beneficial. Clients say I'm an integral part of their success. Sometimes, you might find yourself "stuck" and can't find a way to move forward. Through coaching, I will help you stop, take a step back, and see your situation from a different perspective. I help you to think about your obstacles in entirely new ways, to view them from a different vantage point. I help people enhance their relationships because I believe happiness is found in the connections we have with others.
I believe we each *do* know what we need most--and it's not head patting and ongoing insurance claims.
