MoCo Monday Fit Tip: How to Change Your Lifestyle Habits Before the New Year

Changing your lifestyle habits BEFORE the new year will lead to long-term results vs starting AFTER the new year.

WHY wait a whole month to start making some healthier changes in your life.

If you’re still thinking about waiting off on your fitness goals till January first to get your membership to the new Onelife gym that’s opening up in Rockville… you may think twice after reading what comes next…

Picture this scenario.Meet Amy.

Amy’s 5:30am alarm goes off. She hits snooze again. Just 5 more minutes.


Amy drives to work.

Coffee kicks in. Amy turns on her “happy face” for work.

Lunch time comes around and she picks something that “looks” healthy but in actuality, has more calories than she needs.

She finishes up her 9-10 hour shift and heads home

Mindlessly looks at fitspo posts once home to musk up enough motivation to get to the gym

Finds motivation from instagram model who promotes waist trainers &0 skinny fit teas -Buys a $80 Booty Plan in hopes that all the 1,000 body weight squats she’s told to do will build her a booty just like the IG model (who in fact got a Brazilian butt lift)

Weeks go by and still no progress. She thinks, “Why aren’t I seeing results!?”

Does more bodyweight squats.

Amy heads home to see her partner. She wants to talk… but she doesn’t have the energy for a proper conversation.

Amy eats dinner while searching for another booty plan on IG and looks into sweet sweat, a waist trimmer, or a fit detox tea.

Bedtime. Repeat for 4 more days.

Amy’s weekends are filled with drinking, cheat meals, hangovers and exhaustion from the 50-hour week

Training on Monday? Nah, non-existent for Amy, because “I’m too hungover from Sunday brunch. Maybe Cardio Tuesday”

Does “Amy” sound familiar…?
A little too familiar for some.. What if you COULD actually find the guidance you need, make a great progress, and work with a trainer that cares about you reaching your goals?

No more magazine workouts.

There is a better way to successfully reach your goals while still being able to enjoy the foods you love… like that delicious Alpaca Ice cream in Rockville town center that has been calling my name for the past few days.

And fortunately for you, reaching your fitness goals without creating restrictions is much easier than you think.
Over the past 6 years, I’ve been helping people just like you get the results they’re looking for.


I build custom programs for my clients needs. I teach them how to take the information I’ve given them and apply it to their day to day lifestyle habits. And I teach them how to apply this new knowledge for long term results.

No more flakey workouts… Join my #DemeFit Community to start your New Year off on the right foot!💪🏻✨
