“There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.”
– Beverly Sills

However!  I’ll be with you every step of the way!

– Kimmy


Let’s break this down, shall we?  PUSH is a 2 month program brought to you by Friends Fitness Co that will push us into Spring achieving these results of our combined effort!

  • fat loss
  • weight loss if appropriate
  • muscles you can identify!
  • improved energy
  • improved mental sharpness

We will accomplish these goals with simple proven methods including our daily “playtime” and our clean eating strategies.  We are going to PUSH even through our weekends!  Sorry, but no gimmicks….. We’re not taking you halfway there with some diuretic and unproven supplements. energy drinks or a starvation diet, only to let you fall on your face when you’re body is starving for real food.  We are taking you to the finish line with what 30 years of training experience has taught me… right and move it everyday.  When we finally understand this, we WIN!


The PUSH Program:

  • 2 consecutive Camps / Months beginning in February
  • Your “Real Food” Booklet for daily ideas to stay on track within your personal kc per day goal.  Booklet will contain breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack menu ideas with total kc for each to make it so simple.  It will even include some popular restaurant choices since this is sometimes our only choice.  Your booklet will contain a “healthy pantry page” and a “healthy frig page.”   Featured page will be one with food choices for your desired outcome, ex: less belly fat, more muscle, mental clarity, antioxidants, greater energy.
  • Body comp testing if desired for monitoring progress
  • Weekday motivational health tips in your inbox.
  • Calorie calculator link to set your personal goal!

Monday, 5/16! Calorie burning Contest

May 16, 2011 by  
Filed under News and Updates

Wear your heart rate/calorie monitor and join us tonight at Little Miami Family church for one hour of strength training, and kickbox style cardio! Don’t have a monitor? That’s ok. Sure to burn! Looks like a good night to hang out indoors, stay dry and snag some energy you know only a great workout will provide! Arrive sleepy (especially in this weather) and leave with your metabolism all charged up! You know how it feels! Everyone welcome!

Remember! This is the week we plan to get back to great eating strategies! Here is one:
Go to:
It’s easy here to find clean healthy foods and calculate those that are right around 100 calories. (this is the 100 calorie pack idea gone CLEAN) Ex: 1 egg + 2 egg whites = just over 100 kc.
Find some of your favorite veggies, fruits, proteins, grains here and write down selections from a wide variety of your favorites that total 100 cal each serving. Choose 12 to 15 for the day and stick to this for one week. You guys get 18 to 20. It’s pretty simple if you can just stay away from Wendy’s, subway, chilis, outback, mcdonalds etc etc.

To help you with a weight loss goal, use the following link:
This site will calculate calories per day needed to help you reach a goal in a reasonable amt of time.

I know we don’t want to spend our lives counting calories, but doing so for just a week or so will make us much more aware of our calorie intake and help us keep this in check!!!!!

“Boot Camp” – The Name has Become Cliche’

For most people, Boot Camp style fitness does not sound appealing. Images of fatigue wearing “know it alls” screaming in your ear, “Drop and give me 50 push-ups” does not make one eager to sign up and fall in rank with the other troops! Although this type of fitness is real and does have it’s followers, allow Friends Fitness Co to provide a realistic approach to “Boot Camp” style fitness. Our camps are designed for the client with average fitness abilities who is looking to step it up in life, those who would like to gain strength and lose weight in a fun atmosphere with like-minded people and not be tortured or trod upon, but encouraged and congratulated for their accomplishments. Most of our Boot Campers remark that they are having so much fun that they can’t believe it when the hour is over and it’s time to go!

Stop F*—-n Around!

How much strategy is used in YOUR workout?

Do you frequent the gym?
When you go to the gym do you know what it takes to effectively build muscle and burn fat?
Do you know why building muscle and burning fat is so important?
Do you know the best foods to choose to help you build muscle and burn fat?
Do you know that muscle gains can be accomplished at any age?  Extremely important after 40
Do you know that “small group” training can be the most effective way to reach your fitness goals?

Or……are you just f —–n around with fitness?  oops

No matter what program you choose with Friends Fitness, you are guaranteed to get the highest quality “small group” training that results in minimal time with maximum benefit!  Strategies to target muscle building.  For the last time, YES, you want to build muscle!  You men know this already.  Women… harder to convince.  You also get strategies for the most effective calorie burning cardio.  If you’re riding a treadmill week after week, those results diminish.  If you do any workout repeatedly, your results diminish.  If you only diet and check the scale every couple of days, you may lose some weight, but you are still FAT!  Yes, FAT!  Uh huh, FAT! It’s called “Skinny Fat”

I’ll teach you the strategies!  You will have a good time.  You will come back for more.  Just form the habit….21 days?  The Holidays arecoming and you still have time to form the habit.

November a.m. (5:30am) Fitness Camp begins Monday November 2.  4 weeks/16 Camps $120! BOGO for any NEW Camper! Return Camper (if I recognize you, you are a return camper) $20 off! 

Power Core and Stretch begins Tuesday November 3 $42 this month Tues and Thurs 8:30am
