I am a 43 year-old mother of two active preschool boys.I have always considered myself an athlete and pretty physically fit. After having my sons, both by c-section, I found it very difficult to regain my physique, especially around my lower abdomen. I started working out in Jan's Get Lively small group sessions a year ago and I'm thrilled with the results. Jan is extremely informative on proper technique and what muscle groups we are focusing on during the class. I am definitely getting my waistline back, and abdominal muscles that I thought I would never feel again are re-emerging! I'm looking forward to what another year of Get Lively can do for me and my overall health & wellness. Thank you, Jan!
LISTEN UP PEOPLE! Jan Taylor is the first personal trainer (and I’ve worked with many over the years) who has gotten me into a regular exercise routine, made me actually look forward to it, and has noticeably increased my core strength, which is no small thing for a “sixtysomething” woman. I’ve never worked with a trainer who is so engaged, so attuned to my needs, and so positive in the process. I only wish I’d found Jan decades ago.
When I came to Jan two months ago, I was down and out about my healthy lifestyle because I felt I had lost that person. After listening to my concerns, we worked together to create a program that included the 4-week Fresh Start, Young Living Cleanse, and two Personal Gym Sessions. Each time we met, Jan provided the tools I needed to be successful and helped me to realize that this healthy person was there all along! She helped me to stay committed and enthusiastic about the program and opened my mind to making small changes to my routine that will make big impacts in the future. If I had to pick one favorite moment, it would be that Jan made me excited to try new things, which is a huge win for this (used to be) picky eater! It has been an honor to work with Jan and I look forward to continuing our journey soon!
Being a full-time working mother, I would find every excuse in the book as to why I could not make healthy choices. While working with Jan, we were able to identify what my barriers were and make small and realistic changes each week. These incremental changes did not make me feel deprived, they made me feel like I was in control again. After four weeks, I learned how to keep myself organized and accountable without feeling overwhelmed.
As a full-time working mother of two young children, I realized I needed more than just willpower to kickstart myself into a new nutrition routine. As a health conscious person, I had become low-energy, tired, and regularly overextended myself, often feeling like I was on “empty” and taking on too much. I knew Jan Taylor was just the person to help get me on track. After just a few weeks working with Jan, she was able to provide simple and easy steps to create a balanced nutrition routine that fit into my otherwise hectic life; while making suggestions that helped me regain balance personally, physically, and spiritually. Within 6 weeks, I felt transformed. Almost a year after our initial conversation, I have the tools to make good decisions about my eating habits and lifestyle choices. One of the best things about Jan is that she is entirely present and focused on whomever she is with. She has a natural ability to put people at ease.
3 months ago, I felt broken. Too much hurt and sadness made me feel lost. And the major piece I was losing control of was my healthy lifestyle. I tried it on my own but it wasn't working. I needed something more and that's when I reached out to Jan Taylor. I had seen her Get Lively: Mindful Health & Fitness Coaching world grow and all of the sudden I needed to be a part of it. After listening to my concerns, fears, wants and needs, she said “And you want to work with me?” With me responding”Oh YES! Sorry I forgot to mention that!” followed with lots of laughter and then “YES, let's make a plan that works for you!” And we did just that! Each time we met, Jan provided the tools I needed to be successful and helped me to realize that this healthy person was there all along! She helped me to stay committed and enthusiastic about the process and opened my mind to making small changes to my routine that will make big impacts in the future. One of my favorite moments was telling her how excited I was to be trying new foods and for this (used to be) picky eater that was a huge moment for both of us! But the best part of all is that she reminded me that out of the darkness comes light and I just needed to reach inside myself to find it!
