Team TransFit

Jumpstart Your June- Client Spotlight on University Cancer & Blood Center

Hey, friends! Hope you are enjoying this week of sunshine and warm temps! It’s definitely feeling like summertime!

We had an amazing first week of June at the studio! We started off summer at TransFit with a bang!! New KickBox and Flexibility and Core sessions began, along with new Transformer and regular small group training sessions. We are also providing 1-1 sessions for those who would like personal training or specific goals.

The TransFit team wants to challenge each of you to try something new this summer! Sign up for a variety of classes and change up your normal routine. If you’re home with the kids this summer, we have Transformer and TransFlex classes on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m., as well as early morning times. Our goal is to help provide you more opportunities for time in the studio with us to help you reach your transformation goals! Log into our MindBody app and find a new class that fits your schedule! You’re guaranteed to work different muscle groups and meet new friends!

Today, we want to feature a group of clients who tried something new. We’re very proud of their commitment to whole body transformation at home and in their workplace, and we want to share with you their transformation stories!

Located here in Athens, University Cancer and Blood Center (UCBC) recently participated in TransFit’s corporate wellness program. More than 30 of their employees signed up for a 12-week journey to better health and nutrition!

TransFit’s Nutrition Consultant Katie Woodall visited the UCBC weekly highlighting a different nutrition topic at each session. Starting with the foundation of good nutrition, she also provided a plan for adding exercise to their everyday routine. The group covered topics like cleaning out the pantry/fridge, eating healthy on-the-go and at restaurants, meal prepping, the shopping pathway at the grocery store and much more.

Participants received weekly meal plans that also included grocery shopping lists and recipes, as well as, an exercise plan for each week. This group was always up for the challenge! We challenged them throughout the program to food journaling, eating more fruits and vegetables, and drinking up to 100 ounces of water. Of course, prizes were involved for challenge winners and at the end of the program for individuals with the most progress!

But one of the keys to their transformation was accountability, and UCBC understood that for their employees’ success with the program! Participants weighed in each week to help them stay on track with their progress and toward reaching their goals. At the beginning and end of the program, we took body measurements, including body fat percentage and body mass index (BMI).

We want to highlight a few of their successes…


Lost 22.8 pounds, 4.2% body fat & reduced his BMI 3.1 points!


Lost 18.2 pounds, 13.5 inches, 3.6% body fat & reduced her BMI 2.9 points!


Lost 9.2 pounds, 8.75 inches, 2.7% body fat!


Lost 9.4 pounds, 15 inches, 3.6% body fat!


Lost 17.6 pounds, 18.5 inches, & reduced her BMI 2.9 points!

One of the clients, Pam, had incredible results that she wanted to share. 

"When our physicians presented the opportunity for our office staff to have nutritional counseling, I jumped at the chance to participate.  The idea of having someone provide a meal plan with recipes really appealed to me and I was tired of the excess weight that I had gained.

I am fortunate to have a husband that was willing to try the meal plan and have my food ready when I came home each day so that was helpful, but I did the prep work on Sunday and found that to be an exciting part of the week.  I found myself being more aware of the nutritional value of the items that I was purchasing and started buying a variety of vegetables and fruits.  I also found that I was sleeping better and had more energy since giving up processed items and diet drinks.  I enjoyed getting back to walking and having the energy to do my 3 miles several times a week.  My biggest accomplishment was finding that my lab work and blood pressure had returned to a normal result when I had my physical near the end of our 12 week plan.  This was so exciting to me since diabetes and heart disease are illnesses in my family history.  I felt like a winner!

I have continued to be aware of my dietary intake and still have a few pounds to lose before I look to maintaining my weight, but I feel that this goal is attainable.  I still enjoy my morning smoothies or yogurt parfait for breakfast and love my crockpot recipes for our supper.  I am so glad that I have all of my meal plans, recipes, and nutritional information that we received to use as my guide as I continue this pathway to healthy living.  I'm grateful to our physicians for getting this program in the work place and for my coworkers that provided encouraging words along the journey."

Many others were committed to the 12-week program! They attended weekly nutrition sessions and weigh-ins, food journaled and exercised regularly. Individuals with success toward their transformation goals were consistent with good nutrition and exercise and had amazing results!

We are proud of each of them for trying something new, whether it was exercising or incorporating nutritious foods into their everyday lifestyle. UCBC and their program’s participants recognized the value of whole body health and made a commitment to honor their bodies with better nutrition. TransFit helped by giving them a plan, extra motivation and encouragement, and most importantly accountability!

How to Live Transformed on Vacation

Friends, it’s sweet summertime! The kids are out of school and that much anticipated summer vacation has finally arrived! Each of you have worked so hard in the studio toward your summer fitness goals. Thank you for giving your best! 

Just because you’re traveling and away from your normal daily routine, doesn’t mean you must compromise good nutrition and exercise! You’ve put in too many hours of strength training and cardio sessions to throw it all away! Right?!

You want to feel your best before, during and after your vacation! We want to help you enjoy your vacation and come home feeling relaxed and refreshed — instead of feeling guilty or like you’ve blown your transformation goals!

Just like with everyday life, preparation is key! Planning ahead can help you avoid any slip-ups with your goals and your whole body transformation! So let us help you with 5 simple strategies for Living Transformed when you’re on vacation!

1. Pack smart!

First things first, grab your workout gear! Throw your tennis shoes and exercise clothes into your suitcase. Take your tennis racket if courts will be available.

Pack your favorite healthy snacks. Lots of fruit, nuts and protein bars. Apples and oranges are easy to throw into your carry-on luggage or purse. Pick up a box of the 100-calorie packs of raw nuts. On-the-go packs of roasted edamame can also be found at your local grocery store. And protein bars are an easy snack to pack — just remember to check the nutrition labels and pick bars with 5 grams or less of sugar!

Also, consider packing a shaker bottle and a few servings of protein powder. You can portion out individual servings in snack-sized Ziplock bags. Or Blender Bottle has a shaker bottle that comes with separate containers for storing protein powder.

2. Research ahead of time!

Get online and see what’s close to your hotel or rental. Is there a grocery store nearby? What healthy, local restaurants are close?

Also, if you’re staying in a hotel, find out if there’s a kitchenette or mini-fridge available in your room. Does the facility have a fitness center available?

3. Hydrate!

So many of us neglect hydrating our bodies while traveling even though dehydration is very common during trips. Pack extra water bottles (in a cooler if there’s space) or take your favorite water bottle to refill along the way. Drink water as soon as you get up in the morning, and when you sit down at each meal, drink a large glass of water first!

4. Make smart choices when dining out!

Most importantly, choose restaurants that offer healthy options that support your lifestyle! So many restaurants post their menus online now so you can look it up before you dine. Then you’re prepared to order when you arrive and aren’t tempted with less healthy options.

Don’t be afraid to ask for a healthier option or to customize your meal. Most restaurants are used to this now and don’t mind accommodating your needs!

Choose seafood, chicken or another lean meat option and order them steamed, broiled, grilled or roasted. If fried is your only option on the menu, remember don’t be afraid to ask for another option!

Order your potato baked, boiled or roasted instead of fried! And ask to leave off the butter and sour cream! Consider ordering a sweet potato instead of white potato!

To avoid over-eating, eat small meals throughout the day so you’re not starving at dinner. Take your time eating your meal, enjoy every bite as well as your company at the table!

Of course it’s vacation, so relax and enjoy a cocktail! Just don’t overdo it! And make sure that you’ve hydrated throughout the day.

5. Sweat!

You know the feeling you have after you’ve worked out, so why sacrifice a good sweat session when you’re on the road? That’s why you packed your workout gear — so use it!

Lace up your tennis shoes and hit the pavement (or sand!) This is a great way to explore the city you’re in, too. And since you researched ahead of time, you already know the parks or running trails nearby! We promise that you will not regret a workout!

If you want a good strength workout during your trip, here are a couple options you can do anywhere without any weights:

Five, very simple things you can do to take your transformed lifestyle with you on the road! We are so proud of you and all your hard work you put in through the winter and spring months! You look amazing and deserve a vacation! Enjoy this quality time with your family!
