Have a Happy, Healthy Halloween! 🎃👻

Can you believe it's the last week of October? It seems like just yesterday we were headed into this month- focusing on being optimistic and striving to reach goals we never thought possible. What have you been focused on this month? What goals have you accomplished? Remember to work on small goals daily- striving for progress not perfection! We hope that you have been filling out your October calendar and are ready to submit it for a chance to win a month of FREE sessions!!!

Get ready because it's almost Halloween! The fun holiday allows our kiddos to run around in their precious costumes, buzz with the excitement of all the creative outfits & play makeup  and eat a little too much candy they will be getting later in the evening. With all that sugar coming in the door, it can be easy to allow ourselves to slip and fall into consuming much more than we intended! Today, you can  shift your mindset to the positive: Halloween does not have to be so bad after all! 

Here are a few healthy Halloween recipes you can try this week! Enjoy fellowship with friends and family and focus on our motto "all things in moderation".  Being mindful and having self- control some days is not easy but the life- long rewards of making good choices and not overindulging will be worth it in the end!  You can do this- believe in yourself that YOU CAN make good choices and enjoy a happy and healthier halloween.

Exciting October Transformation News!

Happy October, sweet friend!

Wow, can you believe it is October?! Each of you worked so hard in September, gaining whole body strength! This month we want to focus on optimism in October. Each new month can be a fresh start with renewed motivation and willpower to reach  new goals and follow a healthy lifestyle. As the month progresses and the craziness of holidays start, we often struggle to remain as driven and focused. Please understand this is normal- let our TransFit Team help you transform- not only in body but in mind too!

Check out the new schedule below with new sessions & times, bible study, middle school sessions,  and more 1-1 session times available for you! We are excited to offer a new 5:30 AM session- HIIT Cardio Workout on Thursday mornings! Come join us!

How can you transform in October? Accountability. An accountability partner can be someone who is attempting to live a healthy lifestyle as well, and a person who can encourage you in all areas of life- body, mind, and spirit. This is your "go-to" person when you are feeling stressed, discouraged, don't think you have enough time to fit in a workout, struggling to have a quality quiet time, or facing any of life's many obstacles.

Proverbs 27 says, we weren't meant to do this life alone. God has intended for us to live this life together, and by doing so we "sharpen" one another and make each other better. Take the time to seek out an accountability partner. Make this October your best month leading into the holiday season!  

Part of your accountability can be to encourage one another through our October challenge! This October we are challenging each of you to exercise DAILY, whether it be a workout here at TransFit, running or walking for your cardio, yoga and stretching, or trying one of our workouts on the app! We want you to use this calendar to write down your workout each day! At the end of the month, bring in your calendar for a chance to be entered into a drawing for a $100 TransFit Credit and a Live TransFormed Tank. If you want to share with your friends your challenge, use the hashtag #TFoctoberchallenge to see what others are doing and to encourage one another! 

We are so excited to take this challenge together and look forward to seeing all that you accomplish. If you need any ideas for workouts, check our app or go to the TRANSFORM tab of our website! If you have any questions, please email us at transfitathens@gmail.com. Enjoy encouraging one another and unlocking the key to total transformation!

How can YOU eliminate sugar from your diet? Do 5 days with us next week!

For this final week in September, we want to challenge you to give your all and push  yourself one step further by showing your strength through your nutrition! And we want to help guide you next week using our TransFIVE challenge! 

We’ve changed up our TransFIVE program using a few of our favorite fall recipes, so even if you’ve participated before (or it’s your first time!), the recipes and meal plan are FREE for you to enjoy! 

What is the TransFIVE challenge? It’s simple. Five days of eating clean, whole foods. You focus on eating lean protein, lots of vegetables and fruits and healthy fats. You avoid foods with any added sugars and simple carbohydrates like potatoes, breads and pastas.

 It’s also quick — only five days so you can reset your mind, focus back to your transformation goals to finish September feeling your absolute best!

Next week, meditate each day on Mark 12:30, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.”

Together, let’s take our minds off sugar for five days, and instead relay our focus on the source of our inner strength. Focus on the One who gives us our healthy bodies, gives us the strength to do squats and push-ups and run a mile. Focus on our Creator and love Him with your WHOLE self. 

Our Team will be doing the challenge right alongside each of you! We’ll be checking in on our Facebook page and encouraging you as well! Let’s help motivate one another to giving our best to the challenge next week!


Here are three easy tips to help:


Over the weekend, take an hour or two to get your kitchen ready! Clean out your fridge and pantry. Get rid of those unhealthy snacks or any foods that might tempt you. 

Grocery shop early. We make that easy by including a shopping list with your TransFIVE e-book! As soon as you get home, wash and chop all your fruits and veggies. Prepare your September Salad and portion it out into individual containers for lunches. 


Use your smart phone and set an alert during those “tempting” times of your day. Is it in the afternoon when your kids get home from school? Is it in the evening? No matter the time of day, set an alarm on your phone to go off to help refocus your mind toward your goals. We recommend a 3:00 p.m. alarm or 8:00 p.m. (or maybe both!)

Use scripture for encouragement like 1 Corinthians 6:20, “You were bought with a price, therefore honor God with your body.” When you see this pop up on your home screen, it can help you remember the reason you’re doing the TransFIVE challenge! 


One of our favorite tricks to help fight cravings! No one wants to eat with minty, fresh breath, so brush after every meal! Pack a travel toothbrush and toothpaste in your purse so you can brush even when you’re on-the-go. And at night, commit to brushing by 8:00 p.m. to help prevent those late-night snack cravings!

We believe in you and know you can do anything you set your mind to! So let’s set our minds on fueling our bodies next week with wholesome foods!

Living Transformed!

Biking for Multiple Sclerosis- Mom, Kaitlyn, and me 

Biking for Multiple Sclerosis- Mom, Kaitlyn, and me 

Happy Sunday Sweet friends! 

Hope you have been able to rest and recharge this weekend so you can be ready for a successful week! I am heading back from North Caroline where mom, Kaitlyn and I rode bike to support MS! I urge you to find something active to do that supports a cause that is near to your heart!  

 Now that our schedules are back on track, we want to encourage you to grow in your strength in the spirit. We have been talking about strength this month and the importance of gaining strength physically, but now we have the opportunity to grow together in spiritual strength. 

We are excited to offer the opportunity to dive into scripture through the Live Transformed Bible Study. My prayer for you in this study is for you to learn what God wants for your life, for Him to reveal to you your strengths, and His plan for your amazing body, mind, and spirit.

When you think of the word transformation, what immediately pops into your mind? Is it the possibility of a different looking body?  A renewed spirit and joyful heart? Or a transformed life in which you are satisfied and content with just being you? Join us for the Live Transformed Bible Study. 

The Live Transformed Bible Study is a 6 week study learning more about transformation of the body, mind, and spirit! Here is an overview of the study:

Week One: Foundation for Transformation 

Week Two: Your Body is a Temple

Week Three: Nutrition is Vital

Week Four: Exercise is Worship

Week Five: Your Mind is the Center

Week Six: Be Filled with the Spirit 

Extra Materials: Daily Checklist, Goal Worksheet, Steps for Success

Workouts: 6 Total Transformation Workouts

Meal Plans: 6 weeks of daily meal plans

 Don’t put off your health another moment. No matter what is holding you back, God’s plan is already prepared for you.  The time is NOW to take action!  Let’s make our whole bodies ready to work and serve to it's fullest capacity! We have been given this beautiful gift of a body and let's use this gift to produce good works! 

 I am so thrilled to get to know YOU and study the word with you on this journey and I will be praying for you to be transformed by God’s love! This Bible study will meet on Thursday's at 12:30 PM. I would love to get to spend this time with you and get to personally know you. 

Please register for the Bible Study on the app or through MindBody or email me directly caroline@transfitathens.com. If this time does not work for you, but you and a group of ladies are interested in going through the study, email us at transfitathens@gmail.com for more information about working through the study together.  I am excited for this opportunity to learn and grow with you!
