“Ten months ago, I quit my retail job of 12 years and got a desk job. I was used to being on my feet/walking around for eight hours a day, five days a week, so this was a big adjustment for me. I quickly noticed the weight gain, so I reached out to Meagan for some insight. I had always been curious about macros, but never really understood how they worked. With Meagan’s help, I was able to get back on track with my health and fitness, and I found it amazing that I could feel full when I ate and still lose weight/inches. She was amazing to work with- she adjusted my macros to find what my body responded to and to what was realistic for my lifestyle. She also wrote up custom fitness plans that accommodated my preferences but also gave fantastic results.

Mostly, I love the flexibility that she offers. With weekly email correspondence and feedback whenever I had questions, we were able to find a routine that I can maintain and continue to work towards my goals!”

"I just completed 3 rounds of training with Meagan. Where do I really begin with my testimony? It goes well beyond the scale; it’s the finding of the non-scale victories when the scale doesn’t move some weeks. It is the excitement of your kids waking up just to work out with you! It is my “me time!” The stress load has decreased since working out consistently and eating better, let alone getting enough water in a day! The little things that you don’t realize play a part in your health. I completed my first 5k since training with Meagan and even though I brought the pack up (someone has to be last!), for the first time ever I was ok with being last. Side note: those that know me know how competitive I can be and well don’t do well to losing sometimes. However, after that race I was proud of myself because I completed the whole thing, my splits were a couple seconds apart (never had that before) and my body felt good when I was done. I could of kept going and not just want to fall on the ground. Again, I highly encourage you to seek out the non-scale victories; they are some of your best rewards!

The scale victory is I am down 16 pounds, 24 ½ inches and a good couple pant sizes. I feel confident in myself more than ever! I have started a new lifestyle that works for me and my family, and the best part is the family support!

However, none of this would have been slightly possible if it wasn’t for finding Meagan! This girl speaks to me in a way no one has been able to when it comes to these topics. On the days where I was ready to throw in the towel (because let’s be honest we all have them!), she was able to talk me through those days and make me push harder the next! She stands by you through the whole process, not just the glory days but the not so rosy days also. Meagan works with you on your nutrition, helps you understand the Macros, and helps you if you have restrictions in your diet. I can’t speak enough high words on selecting Meagan as your trainer! She is real 100% with you! She is your cheerleader! I could ramble on and on but just remember to take time for you. I know easier said than done, but like Meagan teaches it’s about finding the balance. With due time you will find the balance and the excuses will get harder to come by! Yourself, family and friends will thank you! If you have any questions about the client side and want to ask before you sign up, I would be more than happy to answer any doubts you may have! The only thing I can tell you that you will regret, is not trying it! Once this transformation challenge is over, I will be right back to sign up for the next round! Have a great day!!"

"Meagan’s training was the mindset change I needed to transform my body. I was trying to get fit by myself and it wasn’t working. I would push myself too hard and then not workout for weeks. Meagan’s program was “do-able” and with her nutrition suggestions, I was able to lose body fat and keep it off!"

"I have been hesitant to post these as I'm still not where I'd like to be, but I have come a long way. So to start out, you should know I have EDS and I had ankle surgery last January. The picture on the left is 8 months ago, the one on the right is last Thursday. Ignore the derp faces.

With the never-ending patience and guidance of the amazing Meagan Swanson, we started with weight lifting and regaining my balance. After some of my restrictions were lifted, we started some plyo moves to keep my heart rate up, but after 6 months, I still want seeing the progress I had hoped for and I was feeling defeated. Time for a new plan.

We started by cutting out alcohol, just for a few days. I lost a crazy amount of water weight so I decided to keep it going, except as a treat on weekends. Then I started tracking macros instead of calories. Turns out, I was only eating about 40 g of protein. I upped my protein to between 100 g and 140g, and in four weeks, my results were incredible. I started slimming down and all that muscle we took so long building started to finally show.

It's hard, guys. Harder when you have a disability. Harder when your body doesn't want to do what it needs to. Yes, I wanted to lose some fat, not weight, I weigh exactly the same in both photos, but I also wanted to get stronger and slow down the inevitable damage to my joints by making the muscles around them stronger.

When you see most progress stories, it seems so easy. This was not easy. This is work and dedication and, sometimes, pain, but it's worth it. All of it. If I can do it, you can do it. For real."

"Not sure how many times I’ve started this post and deleted it lol, but here goes: 16 months ago I saw a picture of myself that made me sad. Somewhere throughout the past several years I quit making myself a priority. I decided I wanted to be healthy again and make a better impact on my family. After losing 70 pounds (yes that’s correct) I made another decision to find the old athlete that I knew was still in there.

With the encouragement of Meagan Swanson and my supportive hubby I let Meagan challenge me and teach me how regain my strength in the gym! I enjoy working out again and To that I can’t thank her enough! My new motto “Strong is beautiful! And if it doesn’t challenge you.. it won’t change you!"
