How to get in shape fast? Efficient and effective workouts you can do anywhere!As an online personal trainer, I know a busy bride-to-be like you doesn’t have time to spend hours working out. That is why I design the workouts for my Lean Bride Transformations clients to be efficient and effective. My clients receive three 45-60 minute full body workouts per week that target those areas that brides are concerned with:
- The backside: the side your guests see the most of during the wedding ceremony!
- Arms: we work on getting nice toned arms for those sleeveless dresses.
- The stomach: you want a nice flat stomach for lying on the beach during your honeymoon, right???
The Wedding Diet Secret: 80% of what we look like is what we eat!As a fitness trainer and nutrition coach, I know how important a wedding diet is to having the perfect wedding body. I believe, “80% of what we look like is what we put into (or don’t put into) our bodies,”-- meaning you can’t out-exercise a bad diet. If you are working your tail off, yet having a pint of Ben and Jerry’s every day, you are not going to reach your wedding body goal. (Trust me, I know it’s tough, Cherry Garcia makes me weak in the knees!) I tell my brides-to-be to be more concerned with the quality of food that you are putting in your body, than the quantity (or calories).

Diets have a deadline, and my goal for you is to have you KEEPING your wedding body long after the honeymoon is over! You can choose from a basic meal plan/guide with a one-time fee, or a custom monthly plan all laid out for you. You are too busy to be in the kitchen for hours; my custom plans will have you doing one afternoon of prep a week, so all you have to do is grab and go!
Hire an online personal trainer for motivational one-on-one coaching.All my plans and packages come with a 60-minute consultation at no cost. Also included are unlimited texts, emails, and Facebook messages. However, sometimes you need an ear to listen and someone to help guide you through those times you just don’t want to go to the gym, or when you are having a hard time staying on track with your nutrition. Don’t worry, even I’ve been there! If one-on-one coaching is more your style, 1- hour once-a-week motivational coaching sessions can be added to any plan. My overall mission that guides me in my life and business is: “Motivate. Inspire. Empower.” I will motivate you when you need it, which will inspire you to keep leading the healthy, balanced lifestyle that will empower you to become the person you were born to be!

Want it all? A combo is how to get in shape fast.If you are the type of bride-to-be that “wants it all”, I also offer packages of all of the above: fitness, nutrition, and one-on-one coaching offered at a major discount compared to purchasing the individual plans separately. As a special discount for my readers here on My Wedding Chat, I'm offering half off my 'I Want It ALL' coaching package! The regular price is $279, but I am offering it to anyone who mentions they read this blog post for only $140. (If you purchased each of these three plans separately, it would cost over $450--this is a huge bargain!) As you are working toward your wedding body, remember a couple of things I tell my brides:
- You don’t need to spend hours in a gym or at home working out to get your wedding body. Use effective wedding workouts that torch fat and keep burning it long after the sweat has stopped.
- Don’t starve yourself with a wedding diet to get your wedding body. Be more concerned with the quality of the food that you are putting in your body, than the quantity or calories. When you do, the quantity and calories usually will take care of themselves.
