In this podcast, I interview Anne-Marie, who did three months of Legion’s VIP one-on-one coaching program to get “unstuck” in her fitness journey, improve her body composition, and feel better and healthier at 45 than ever before. And the best part is she started my Thinner Leaner Stronger program in her 40s, so the lesson here is it’s never too late to get started. 

Anne-Marie had always been relatively fit, but before she found my work, she did a lot of running and didn’t know what to do in the weights section of the gym. Like many fitness folk who start without a plan, she wandered from machine to machine without much to show for it in terms of results.

Then she read Thinner Leaner Stronger and things started to click. She finally knew what to do in the weight room and enjoyed tracking her lifts and seeing the progress over time.

But like many other people in her shoes, there was a “missing piece” and she eventually got stuck in a training rut. It turns out that missing piece was nutrition and tracking her macros, which is why she decided to sign up or my VIP Coaching. Her coach taught her everything she needed to know and Anne-Marie immediately noticed the differences proper nutrition could make in her health and fitness. She made huge leaps in her body composition and even her sleep and mood have improved. 

Since then, Anne-Marie has gone on to start competing and she’s had a lot of success so far, which we’ll talk about in the interview. We also discuss her training history, how she planned workouts while caring for her young daughter, how proper training has changed her weight and body composition, her future competing plans, and more.

So if you’re looking for a jolt of inspiration and like motivational stories, definitely listen to this episode.
