First Step Fit Club

FIRST STEP FIT CLUB is a FREE workout group that meets weekly.

The downloadable workout we use was developed by world famous fitness trainer and Rhode Island's own TONY HORTON (Creator of P90X, Power 90, 10 Minute Trainer). It is NOT FOR SALE but FREE to help people get started on their road to better health and a better quality of Life. You now have the's up to you!----> 

If You Or Someone You Love… 
- Are Out Of Shape 
- Haven’t Worked Out In Many Years 
- Has/Have Had Health Issues And Would Like To Get Moving Again Slowly 
- Has/Have 100 Or More Pounds To Lose 
- Can’t Do A Warm-Up To Another Workout Because It’s Too Strenuous 

                                                    This Is for You! 

Having health issues and disabilities for almost 20 years, I needed to start somewhere and finally realized there are many people like me...needing a place to start to even get in shape to be able to do a simple warm-up.
Living in constant pain, I could barely walk, get up from the bed or couch and was out of breath just standing up. I had a pile of workout dvd's, walking dvd's, yoga dvd's and could not even do the warm-ups, let alone the exercises! The dvd's just got dusty and took up space on the shelf!

I'd seen all the Beachbody® commercials and felt left out and depressed because I didn't fit in anywhere.

I grew bigger and bigger without realizing it (sweat pants and stretch shorts go a long way to hide the bulge) had battled with high-blood pressure for over 5 years, and had shortness of breath, among many other debilitating health issues.  I was afraid of dying young. I didn't want my life to end early- not at 51 years old!

I'd seen the commercials, went to the website and joined Team Beachbody as a free member.  I was surprised to see there were other workouts available to me, not just P90X® or Insanity®- I was THRILLED because I finally had some sort of hope I'd be able to find something that fit my limitations. Well, I did find the workout you see now on the right side of this page. It's called "Pay It Forward" and the dvd was sent to me by my coach- yes, a free coach.  Besides this workout I didn't have to buy, I found more info and free ways to help me lose weight and get healthy, like Message Boards and a virtual "gym" where I can login and have workout buddies from across the country to support me in my daily challenges!  Beachbody offers several other exercise programs for people who need a place to start.  I was so suprised because all I ever heard about were the extreme workouts, like Turbofire and Hip Hops Abs!

I was also surprised to see a chart called Michi's Ladder that helps me substitute foods I was eating for healthier choices. It's listed under "Eat smart" on the home page. This is all provided FREE to help people lose weight and live the life they've dreamed of!

It doesn't get EASIER than this and it's all here in one place-

The Exercise Program, The Food Choices and Free Online Support, as well as the weekly meeting!

*** If you'd like to use Michi's Ladder right now, login as a FREE member by clicking here.

I created First Step Fit Club to share what I've found...share what's helped me lose over 20 inches, share what got me off the blood pressure medications..(yes, after 5 years, my blood pressure is now normal).

You have to take the First Step some it today- DO IT RIGHT NOW AND COMMIT YOURSELF TO LIVING A LONGER, FIT AND HEALTHIER LIFE. Do it for YOU, for your Loved Ones, grand kids, dog, cat...just do it now.

We'll do it together- YOU ARE NOT ALONE! No one is here to judge, look at what you're wearing or whether or not you can move!

Begin now by pressing "play" on the video in the upper right-hand corner. Watch it and commit to doing it at least 5 times a week and come to the Fit Club for support and a workout with people just like you and me, weigh in if you'd like or have your measurements taken, we'll take "before and after" photos (please bring your own camera as this is your success story) if you'd like. You'll be amazed at the changes in your body just in time for the holidays.

PLUS- Enjoy a free taste of Shakeology just for coming!

Back On Track and Latest News

Wow!  After quite a busy few months, I'm back to posting. 
The best news is that I found a wonderful location for the first-ever First Step Fit Club in Rhode Island...maybe anywhere!
It's at a wonderful wellness center called Positive New Beginnings on Broadway in East Providence, Rhode Island. We've had six very successful sessions. New people are coming from around Rhode Island and regulars are coming back weekly. 
People are LOVING the Shakeology samples - it's a nice treat after the workout and customers who've purchased it are feeling FANTASTIC on it. 
I am thrilled to be part of this life-changing program- Thank you, Beachbody!
Some exciting new products have been launched. During these last several weeks, another Vegan Shakeology has been introduced- 
nutrient-rich and Vegan Chocolate Shakeology is delicious- I've been drinking it this last month and it's a perfect way to stay healthy and animal-friendly at the same time!
Also new to the scene is Beachbody's breakthrough Anti-Aging System, Derm Exclusive. Watch the video as actress and mother, Minnie Driver explains how she uses Derm Exclusive and how it works for her. I CAN'T WAIT TO TRY IT! :)

That's it for news. I'm scouting another location for First Step Fit Club and will be starting one for kids after-school, from ages 5-12, so keep an eye out for more info.

See ya at Positive New Beginnings every Thursday afternoon 5:30-6:30pm,
877 Broadway in East Providence, RI. There's parking in the back. Very easy to get to, right off Exit 6 on RTE 195.

Scouting Locations For My First Fit Club

It's a gorgeous June afternoon- there's nothing like late Spring to cheer me up!
I've been enjoying my chocolate Shakeology with Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk and a little peanut butter, toss in a few ice cubes and all I can say is Y U M! LOL

I'll be headed out in about an hour to meet with a wonderful lady named Dottie, who offered her Wellness Center to use as a Fit Club! How often do things like THAT happen? :)

I have almost everything ready for my first Shake and Share and Fit CLub, so things are looking GREAT. I can't wait to see others have amazing results and watch their lives changes right before their eyes! It's so EXCITING to be part of Beachbody and part of their goal to End The Trend Of Obesity! Yaaaaay!

See how Beachbody Challenge Groups have changed the lives of these people!

Attended My First Fit Club Tonight

I attended my first Fit Club tonight and it was great!

There are none in Rhode Island right now....soon to be MINE (evil grin ala Dr. Evil...MuHahahahaaaaa...) so I looked up an area within 50 miles. It was the Stone Church Fit Club in Raynham, MA and I met some wonderful people and hopefully, new friends! It was WELL-WORTH the trip and I look forward to visiting with them again!

I love being part of the energy and excitement...feeling everyone's enthusiasm and just having fun!  Can't wait to start my own!

"Like" my Fit At 51 Facebook page to find out when I'm having my own Shake and Share and Fit Clubs! I'd LOVE to see you there!

It Feels So Good When People Notice

I'm, I'm LOVING the comments I'm getting from people who are seeing my body change!
People I know casually who haven't seen me in some time are asking me what I'm doing and telling me I look great!

There's no better feeling than that...and that's what helps me keep about one of the BEST motivators ever.

PLUS, I love looking in the mirror and seeing little changes every day-and to think, five months ago I was petrified of dying early....Now, I look forward to living a very long and joyful Life!

CLICK HERE for a really motivating message from Tony Horton! I LOVE IT! 
Watch the video, listen to him and ENJOY YOUR LIFE!..and do the free workout in the upper right hand corner if you haven't moved in awhile! 

Dig Deep and Bring IT!

I enjoyed my daily glass of Shakeology...CLICK HERE to see how Shakeology can change your life!

Lost Another 3 Inches Doing Minimal Work

Wow! I LOVE these programs...the exercises really work.

If you've read my previous entries, I hurt my ribs last month and went to doing some modified Pay-It-Forward exercises and very little Tony and The Folks...yet I was measured the night before last and I STILL lost an inch off my chest, waist and hips for a total of 3 inches!

This has NEVER happened to me before! Whenever I stopped or slowed down, I usually gained or lost my shape!

I'm also drinking the Green Berry Shakeology, which I LOVE! 

I've managed to work my way up to the Slim In 6 workout with Debbie Siebers. I started yesterday and am modifying the floor work because I'm still in too much pain but I'm moving along with the other work and doing the core work in the Pay It Forward dvd for now. 

Either way, I'm MOVING, eating healthier, gaining strength and giving myself a new life...
