It’s the 10th anniversary of Thrive Personal Fitness!


I’m not sure how it happened, but for ten years I’ve been helping women in 417-land and beyond build happier healthier lives.

I started my blog the same week I launched up the business. On this week’s episode, I share that cringe-worthy first blog post. (You can read it here if you like.)

I mentioned my favorite playlist too. In the gym, I’m most likely to click on the Confident playlist I created on Spotify. Also here’s the workout playlist with Lizzo from 2016!

Celebrate the 10th anniversary of Thrive Personal Fitness with me! If you would like an invitation to the virtual anniversary party, CLICK HERE to get yours. I’ll be sharing the origin story of Thrive Personal Fitness, what I’ve learned about self-care on my entrepreneur journey and what’s next for Thrive Personal Fitness and Fit in 417.

Plus one lucky person who joins the part LIVE will win a FULL YEAR of online personal training!

Are you making healthy eating too hard?


Eating healthy and meal planning does not require you to spend your entire Sunday afternoon in the kitchen. This week on the podcast, I share a great Middle Ground option on your fitness journey – freshly made ready to eat meals. Meals prepared in someone else’s kitchen but that you can easily reheat and eat are a great baby step away from frozen meals or the drive-up.

I taste-tested three ready to eat meal options in Springfield Mo for you: Eat-Fit-Go, Mama Jean’s Natural Market and The Hungry Herbivore.
