Several things are running around in my mind that lead me to this post, all around the concept of weight loss and why it’s so darn difficult to accomplish!

Coach Chris holds 5 pounds of fat!
What 5 pounds of fat looks like!

We are running our Maintain, Don’t Gain program right now where we are offering support through the holidays to keep to our health and fitness goals. Last year, we had some people that even lost a few pounds during the contest!

And of course, January brings our annual weight-loss contest, 2017 Glenwood South Slimdown, which will start the week of January 23, in case you want to start thinking about teams!

Finally, there’s a new Nutrition Coaching program we’re going to offer in early 2017 from PersonallyFit and PrecisionNutrition. This is going to be very exciting and I can’t wait to tell you more…

So if weight loss is a goal is one of your goals for 2017, I think we can certainly help one way or the other.

I will tell you that in my experience, long-term weight loss results from a combination of changes made in three key areas: fitness, nutrition, and mindset.

They are all important and must work together to achieve results. This is part of the reason why we decided to divide the resources on our Online Training Membership site into those three categories. Learn more about it at – and join us at MyPersonallyFit!
