Maybe you’re not into elite performance
But you care about living long enough to know your grandchildren.
You want to be healthy enough to see the world or have the time to volunteer. You want to be able to initiate change in something that inspires you. You care deeply about having a solid quality of life and aging gracefully. Do you want your later years of life to be filled with beautiful memories of close friends and family, and not full of doctor’s visits, endless bottles of pills, and long hospital stays? Do you want to take long walks on the beach when you’re 80 without being afraid of falling? You want to love life and live it.
Do you want a tribe that cares about that?
Maybe you’re not particularly concerned about having six pack abs, but you do want to feel comfortable in your clothes. When you go shopping for new pants you don’t want to worry if each store will carry sizes big enough to fit you. When you sit down you don’t want your belly to hang over your belt and leave a red mark that stares at you when you look in the mirror after removing your clothes at the end of the day. You want know that if you happen to be running somewhere without your shirt on people aren’t going to be disgusted by seeing all you jiggling body parts? When you fly on a plane, you don’t want to be that big person who takes up too much seat room.
Do you want a tribe that understands that?
You don’t care about bullshit fads or science -y fitness jargon, but you do like learning new things. When you’re introduced to a new exercise it feels great when you can learn it quickly and have some success on the first few tries. You want a trainer to skip the super advanced stuff they learned last weekend at the latest retreat. You want to learn by doing rather than talking about every painful detail of proper biomechanics. You promise you’ll get better at it but just want to get started on something.
Do you want a tribe that teaches and learns like that?
You’re not concerned about hooking up and working out with the super hot fitness peeps, but you do value being part of a community. You need to feel supported and like you belong. You want to sweat with people you might consider friends one day. Instead of an environment where you feel judged by how you look. You want to be feel included and celebrated for your efforts. Cheered on when you show up, encouraged when you need a little push, nudge me to come back if I’m missing. You want to laugh and at least enjoy being there with your group. You want a space where you can fail and someone will be there to help you try again and remind you that failure is just a part of the process. You want to be supported by a team of professional fitness and health coaches who demonstrate empathy and lead by their own example of caring and kindness.
Do you want to be a part of a tribe which provides that environment?

We understand!…….We love food to.
Food is not the enemy. We will eat.
We know the enemy well.
Food chemicals, refined sugars, highly processed foods………………..are the enemy. We know it, you probably know it and we’re all here fighting together to seriously restrict consumption of it.

We will hold you accountable for showing up but we won’t kick you when you’re down. We will do our best to pick you up, work you out, and send you home feeling better than when you showed up.
But you must show up. (At least most of the time)
Expect to learn
We don’t believe anything just because someone says it’s true. Not the television, not the internet and certainly not some bat shit crazy celebrity. We will share what we know works for us and others. You must decide if it works for you.
Prioritize the important stuff.
Family, friends, work, life are all important. So is your health. Prioritize it or lose it.
Take pride in and responsibility for yourself.
You are who you are and you can change if you want to. Take pride in yourself and be responsible for your actions or lack of. Take responsibility for your past self and your future.
Ultimately we want to be happy, healthy and fit and we’re making it happen one day at a time.
Join Project Body Smart and help us change people’s lives by living yours the best way you can.
