Just another Saturday at the fitness studio, and now for my wonderful clients.

Paula went on and off a popular and unhealthy diet, much of her life. Here she learned how to eat in balance, using food to regulate hormones and exercise to allow for balance AND AMAZING RESULTS! I’ll never forget a quote from Paula Jean, “…I cannot believe how much I’m eating!”

This is Deb. She tragically lost her husband and needed to do something good for herself. To keep moving and remain positive and hopeful in life. I designed her fitness & nutrition plan, and provided simple assignments. Just twice per week. Online or in studio. Lets GO!

Akard Fitness is closed today. I am grateful for the men and women who loved and protected our wonderful country. Today I remember those whose lives meant so much to so many. We thank you.

Swimsuit Ready!

This is my client Lauren Shavell Buhmann from Minnesota (for cripes sakes)! She has been an online client for over a year now and is training for a bikini competition. We've never met in person, but talk on the phone every week (coaching call). I think she's going to crush it in the OVER 50 category! Way to go! Are you swimsuit ready? I help Lauren and many others with their fitness and nutrition plan. It's all designed for YOU, by ME! Let's go!

Transformation Tuesday- Danya is a mother of 8 in her 50’s. In the first photo she found that what worked before worked no longer for where she is meant to be. She still enjoys balance, but comes twice per week, does her assignments & BRINGS IT every time.

Transformation! Phil lost his best friend, who was out of shape and found health issues that cost him his life. Phil decided he wanted a change in his life for the better! He still has some fun, but is now in balance! Proud of Phil to say the least.

“I wish I hadn’t exercised today” said no one ever.

So glad I have a client now, who is a 9/11 survivor. She escaped the tower that was first struck. Those horrible jerks did not take the life, of a then 26 year old, who now has a beautiful family. So many lost, but I take much peace in knowing her.

Great first group of clients at new casita studio. Quick break of office work and now my turn to kick my ass! Lol.

08/21/2021

Waiting on my last visitor to buy this old bench, before I lock the door for the last time. I have been at this studio (south Scottsdale) for seven years now. I was at my original studio (old town) for sixteen years. I’m excited for what is likely to be my final place of business (casita near Kierland). I’m blessed for all of these years past and for those that are about to begin.
