Valerie's FLiP! Start With Happy Program SUCCESS

Valerie's Success Story


My experience during the 12-week program has been amazing. Not only are the workouts wonderful but I’ve truly become friends with my body again. Tamara’s core belief session helped me realize that I can and should listen to my body. I’ve realized that I haven’t really listened to what my body has been telling me since I was 14 years old. Tamara has given me the tools to know what I should eat as well as how much I should eat, but all the while listening to what my body needs. In past fitness regimens it has felt that I was in a constant battle with my body, trying to force it to be my perception of healthy. Now I trust my body, I know it will get stronger, I know that it will tell me when it’s hungry. I in turn will give my body the exercise it needs and feed it. I can do this for the rest of my life.

The workouts are just amazing. The lifting, while challenging, is definitely something that I can sustain over time. I absolutely love the stretch, it’s been amazing to see my flexibility level increase over the past several weeks. I feel so much younger!! Surprisingly to me, the dance has been incredibly fun for me. I had never danced before taking this class and now I find myself dancing to any music I hear. I feel that I am more aware of my body now. My body is leaner than it has ever been. I am fitting in my "fit” clothes from several years ago when I was lifting weights and doing lots of cardio“.but I weigh ten pounds more than I did then.

I’m just so thankful that I’ve had the opportunity to take part in the Dancer’s Body lifestyle. I don’t ever intend to stop.
