If like most people you are constantly struggling to lose that last ten pounds then you need to listen to this interview ASAP! Holly is an expert trainer and a total bad a** in strength training programs, and is sharing with you first hand how shifting her own workouts changed her body and how simple changes and additions can help you do the same. Get ready to set new goals and transform your body and lifestyle for good!


In this episode, we cover: 

  • Why celebrity trainer Holly uses strength training as her most effective tool for transforming her body and her clients
  • How long it really takes to begin to see physical changes in your body and why you should never give up
  • Holly’s top 3 fitness blunders smart women make and how you can shift that today
  • What Holly  does on a typical week to stay in shape and feel her best
  • Why the mind body connection is also key to transforming your life and body
  • What celebrities really do to get those abs and why you should never trust the tabloids

3 Key Points: 

  • If you are not using strength training as a tool to transform your body today you are setting yourself up to continue your cycle of frustration and will not be able to reach your goals as effectively.
  • You must match the work to the goal. So remember what you put into each day, workout, meal, and mindset will have a major effect on you reaching your goals. Time to start shifting your mind today and matching your work output to the goal you have created.
  • Set realistic expectations for your lifestyle. You do not have to go all or nothing today. Small changes = big rewards in the big picture.
