Exciting November News To Help You Transform!

Sweet friends,

November is here and the holidays are right around the corner! With the joyful holidays comes a lot of temptations of unhealthy foods and lack of exercise, but this month is the perfect time to challenge yourself to stick to your goals!

November is a time of Thanksgiving, and we want to focus on nourishing our bodies this month through mind, body and spirit. We can do it! Instead of diving into those unhealthy foods, let’s view proper nutrition and exercise as a form of worship!

For Nourish in November, we want to challenge you to be active and exercise 5 TIMES PER WEEK and eat THREE servings of vegetables per day! You can go on a nice walk in the cool fall air with your family, come into the studio for a TransFormer session, do yoga, or play with your kids in the backyard! Just be active! One serving of vegetables is typically equal to 1/2 cup. Try to get a minimum of three servings per day.

Download our November calendar below and fill in your exercise and vegetables EVERY DAY. Turn in or send us your calendar at the end of the month for a chance to win A MONTH OF FREE SESSIONS!

It’s almost time for our Holiday Extravaganza! For those of you that have never participated, this is your year! The goal is to maintain your weight through the holiday season! The cost is $20 to participate. Weigh-ins will begin the week of November 12-16.

If you maintain your weight, you get your entry money back in January when you come back to weigh-in! If you gain weight, your money stays in the bucket! At the end of the holiday season, we will re-weigh and the biggest loser gets to keep ALL of the leftover money! The top-five finishers will also receive a gift!

We are excited to share with you our Service Outreach Project for the holidays! Our service project will benefit the students of Downtown Academy, a school just a few miles from TransFit that seeks to provide children of inner-city Athens an excellent and rigorous Christ-centered education that builds knowledge, character and purpose.

We will be purchasing fitness equipment (balls, jump ropes, fitness bands, etc.) for students to use during recess and in their after-school program. This was a need we became aware of recently, and it resonated with our mission here at TransFit. We are passionate about health, which includes mind, body and spirit.

Look for the Giving Tree that will be set up in the studio right after Thanksgiving, with instructions on how you can participate. We look forward to celebrating the birth of Jesus with our clients and community!

This 55-minute yoga session will increase flexibility and core strength. The postures are connected through the breath for a transformative and balancing effect. The yoga session will burn fat, increase endurance, flexibility and strength. The session will inspire you physically and mentally to live transformed in mind, body and spirit.

C- CONFIDENCE- "You are altogether beautiful, my darling; there is no flaw in you." Song of Solomon 4:7

O- OBEDIENCE- "He replied, 'Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.'" Luke 11:28

M- MOTIVATION- "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men." Colossians 3:23

M- MINDFULNESS-  "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Phillippians 4:6-7

"In February, I began my workouts with Caroline after trying numerous other "work out" plans in town.  I've always been an active person but a life-long and regular work out warrior, not so much.  I did not do an organized "aerobics" class until well after college. I was in and out of work out programs while in Atlanta, DC and after I married and moved to Delaware.  I (and my husband) realized quickly that working out was a great physical release but also a HUGE mental equalizer. I have always struggled to make my workout a priority. I need an appointment time and personal accountability. Caroline's motivation and energy have helped me continue to stay on task. I love that I make an "appointment" and have it on my calendar. No excuses and I block out an hour for my personal physical and mental health.

I've reached a point in my life where my fitness is a priority. I work out at Transfit at least a couple of times a week and get regular cardio and stretching a few times a week. I'm on the road a lot in the fall to see my boys in college and try to get in workouts on the road. Walks, tennis, TransFit sessions and the past couple of weeks - great hikes have helped me keep on track. 

My diet is probably my biggest challenge. I love healthy food.... but there isn't much that I don't like. I've been lucky to be able eat pretty freely but as I get older and want to stay healthier, I recognize I have to be more cognizant of what I put in my body. As I began to work with Caroline and TransFit, I logged my food... for the first time ever.  I became much more aware of the nutrients that I need and the "other stuff" that I don't. Though I don't always eat what I should, I do have a much better understanding of what I am consuming and it's effect on my body, energy and well-being. 

After being diagnosed with osteopenia a couple of years ago and given the fact that my Mom and sister both have had osteoporosis, I am considered high risk and need to increase my bone and muscle mass. I also have had back issues for the past few years and Caroline is very careful to adjust exercises for my individual needs and check in with me to see how my back is feeling. 

I married into an extremely athletic family and have two sons (now 19 and 21) who I had to learn and continue to try to keep up with. I was really humbled this spring when they came home from college and noticed a difference in me. They were so excited that I had muscle definition, seemed to be in better shape and healthier that I had before. Thanks to Transfit, I'm probably in the best shape ever."


Way yo go Lisa! You are incredible! Let's all strive to make progress on day at a time! In order to finish September strong, we are encouraging you to join us for our TransFIVE challenge starting next Monday. The challenge is 5 days of completely restoring your body, and will revamp your health in a new way. This challenge can help you focus on removing sugar and toxins from your body. 

Let us know if you have any questions!

Blessings,
