SUMMER BOOTCAMP = Triathlon Sprint Training!

SUMMER BOOTCAMP: Info Meeting - FRIDAY MAY 16th @ 6 am at Avondale Academy (1417 Lake View Terrace Rd). Anna Marie Miller (seasoned triathlete) will be coaching with me this season. We will explain what you will need for equipment, our training plan, nutritional advice, and answer questions about participating the TriathaMOM Sprint on August 16, 2014.

NOTE: Registration for BOOTCAMP will be available RIGHT HERE on this site before the May 16th information meeting. However - in the mean time I recommend that you pay the $25 reservation fee to reserve your spot ASAP. Registration is limited to 15 participants each month. Only 5 spots left for June as of today. Reserve yours by contacting me at befitwithjolie@gmail.com, and arranging to pay your fee. THIS IS A ONE-TIME ONLY FEE.

Here's how it works: You will pay the one time $25 fee to hold your spot. Then when the registration form is available on this blog, you will be asked to list any dates you know you will be gone during the training. If you leave for more than a week on vacation - someone on the wait list will be included in your place. That means you will lose your spot and if desired, you will be added to the end of the wait list. I know that sounds harsh...but we have so many wanting to take advantage of this training at such a discounted rate, that we need you to COMMIT if you are going to take a spot. 

Here's the good news :) You can earn your $25 fee back if you attend ALL training sessions AND participate in ANY triathlon sprint before school starts at the end of August. Keep in mind that bereavement or illness do NOT count as vacation - so you can't lose your spot for those reasons.

The monthly training fee is $50 per month and includes training on M-W-F and a few Saturday sessions. Payment is due the 1st day of the month - no grace period. The only other costs associated with this training are the registration for a Triathlon Sprint of your choice and sport specific equipment that you don't already own.

You can participate in ANY triathlon sprint this summer. However, the women in our group will be encouraged to join Anna Marie and myself  at TriathaMOM in Riverton, UT on August 16th. TriathaMOM is a fully supported, non-competitive, women only triathlon.  Make no mistake, this is a REAL triathlon sprint, (300 meter swim, 12 mile bike ride, and 5k run) complete with the REAL triathlon experience of chip timing, body marking, and intense feeling of accomplishment. But it is an opportunity to "tri" a triathlon in a comfortable atmosphere for first timers! If you would like to participate on a relay team (only performing one leg of the triathlon) you can do that. For example, if you don't have access to a bike, you might consider getting 2 of your friends to join you in the relay.

Go to the site for more details about the relay and/or to register before June 1 for early bird discounts: www.gotriathamom.com/ 

I can't tell you how excited we are to offer this opportunity this year! Contact me if you have questions: befitwithjolie@gmail.com.


AMAZING Challenge for Change Results!!

Twenty women from Saratoga Springs, Eagle Mountain, Highland, Alpine and Orem, Utah accepted the fourth annual Be Fit with Jolie - 12 Week Challenge for Change and seventeen finished with our most amazing results yet!

Our High Point/Overall Winner, Tonette Roberts (67 years young) gained 10 pounds of muscle, lost 9.6 % body fat as measured at the BYU Bod Pod, (+/- 2 % research grade method of measuring body composition) and had a net loss of 16 pounds. She has also trimmed 4" off her hips and 4" off her waist. She was thrilled to share these results (even her age) because she wants others to know it is not only possible to get better as you age - it can be a reality if you are willing to try something new and follow it through!

Every ONE of our finishers lost at least 2% body fat, with the average being almost 5%. Our highest body fat percentage loss accomplished by Brittney McClellan at 9.9%. Our highest inches/dress sizes loss was Meg McInnes. Meg took 6"off waist and hips and dropped in clothing size from a 10 to a size 4! For some, being a "finisher" was enough to celebrate. For others, being willing to learn and apply new strategies in the face of their fear of failure was the ultimate success.

But I want to make an even more poignant point: These women SHOWED UP to work outs at 5:00 am, and some attended DAILY! And...they kept showing up for 12 weeks. They followed a weekly meal plan,  attended strategy sessions and participated in our sponsored 5k/10k race to benefit Westlake High School Marching Band. These are the results that came through hard work, courage, and even willingness to replace Dr. Pepper and Diet Coke with WATER! It wasn't easy...but ask any one of them and they will tell you it was more than worth it. Many discovered their true power and beauty within as their bodies reluctantly began to change. They began with a goal to have a life changing experience, and in the end...they are changing lives. 

Girls, you have truly ignited the fire within! Now it is time to do something significant with your results. The only thing left for me to say is...burn baby, burn!! And, that if I am still living in Utah in February 2015, there WILL BE ANOTHER Be Fit With Jolie CHALLENGE FOR CHANGE! :) 

A teacher can never truly teach unless she is learning herself. A lamp can never light another flame unless it continues to burn its own flame.
