Why you Should NOT Join Cut the Crap Club
Membership to my Cut the Crap Club will be closing it’s doors to new members on Monday, July 4. While there are many reasons why you should join.
Today I’m going to explain why you should NOT join. Crazy right!
Reason #1 – You Don’t Need Help Because You are 100% Perfect
Yep, that’s right. If you can confidently say you are 100% perfect in every way, if you’ve got your shit together and don’t need any help from anyone. Well, then, I envy you! Can you please share with me your secret sauce. Because I think we all want to drink that kool-aid!
Even though I’m a holistic nutritionist and personal trainer, I STILL have struggles when it comes to my health, when it comes to managing my time, when it comes to planning meals, when it comes to motivation to move my arse and workout and the big one…learning how to slow down and manage the stresses in my life.
So, what do I do? I seek out help, I’m always learning, experimenting and getting coaching from my mentors and colleges. Because I know I can’t do anything alone, and the only way I can be truly successful and healthy is with support, motivation and accountability. And this is a huge part of Cut the Crap Club.
But you’re perfect right, you don’t need any help!
Reason #2 – You are stress-free and manage your time like a pro
Seriously, you’ve got to share your secret sauce! One of the most common struggles I hear is “I don’t have time”, “I’m too busy”, “There are not enough hours in my day”, you get the idea, or maybe not because you manage your time like a pro.
But let me tell you what life is like for us mere mortals. We struggle all the time with deadlines, family priorities, work schedules, kids, family, housework, well, the list goes on. And what ends up happening is we forget to look after ourselves. When that happens our health declines, we put on weight, we give in to our sugar cravings, we are moody, our skin breaks out, we get joint pain, we can’t sleep and our energy levels are totally zapped.
In Cut the Crap Club I want to help you eliminate or at least handle those stresses with more ease. To guide you to the understanding that your health has to be your #1 priority in order for you to win and be successful every day.
But I don’t need to tell you this!
Reason #3 – You have no health struggles
Ok, now you’re just showing off!
What a world it would be if we were all living a healthy pain-free life. We would all be in a happier richer world, don’t you think? The truth of the matter is, we have complete control over our health and our bodies. We make choices every day that either fight disease or feed it. Our lifestyle is a huge contributing factor to many of health issues in the world today.
But the good news is we live in a time when there are so many options that are available to us, to help us and guide us to optimal health. However, the only thing holding us back from achieving the bodies and health we want – is ourselves. The excuses we tell ourselves, all the times we’ve said no to the right things and yes to the wrong things.
I designed Cut the Crap Club to help us mere mortals eliminate those excuses and say yes to the right things.
Reason #4 – You have zero body image issues
Even though I’m thin, when I look at the back of my legs and see that cellulite, I cringe. Yuck. It wasn’t until my late 20’s that I had any confidence to wear a bikini at the beach. And Yes, I am someone who is thin and have been fit my entire life. I still have body image issues and is something I work on regularly.
Now, I know you don’t understand any of this because you have zero body image issues. But many of us struggle every day because we feel we are too fat, have too many freckles, think our noses are too big, our hair is too curly, our elbows look funny and our ears are lopsided. Yeah, I know, it’s crazy.
While it’s easy for you to say, “Just love yourself, you’re beautiful the way you are”, that’s easier said than done. While it can be done, it does take time, it does take a shift in our mindset and it takes practice. In Cut the Crap Club we tackle body image and I focus on encouraging and guiding my members to find their self-worth, build their self-confidence and truly believe they ARE beautiful and that all-elbows look funny!
Reason #5 – Every day you are motivated to eat healthily and workout
Wow, were you sent from heaven, because you totally got your shit together. I’m in the business of health and fitness. And while I love working out and being active, I’ll admit there are times when I’d much rather binge watch Game of Thrones and eat ice cream than go for a run or do burpees and squats. I’m only human and from time to time even I need a push, I need support and someone to motivate me to move my arse and help me choose carrot sticks over potato chips.
The most successful people in the world, entrepreneurs, athletes, celebrities, community leaders, all have help. They all know they would never be where they are if there wasn’t someone in their life to support them on their journey.
I’ve built Cut the Crap Club as a support network, it’s a community of like-minded women and men looking for guidance and who are ready to take action on reaching their health goals. There is strength in numbers.
But none of this matters to you right? You’re perfect!
If you’d still like to join, do so today because the doors will close Monday, July 4th.
Why I Started Cut the Crap Club
The Cut the Crap Club is something I have been working on for months and months. It all came about because I had clients who wanted to continue working with me but didn’t have a) the finances to continue meeting with me each week and b) couldn’t afford the 1 hour of time to work out with me.
As a nutritionist and personal trainer, it’s always hard to hear that a client can no longer continue for whatever the reason. It hurts because I see them doing so well, their body is changing, they are getting stronger, more flexible and feel less pain. Their attitude and outlook on life are becoming more positive and I see them growing into themselves and gaining more self-worth and confidence.
So when those clients said they could no longer continue, I had to find a way for them to continue their healthy journey without them struggling with time or money. They had worked so hard to get where they were I didn’t want them to ‘fall off the wagon’ for lack of a better term. I’ve seen it many times before, when clients stop working with me, they no longer have the accountability and motivation. It’s so easy to say, tomorrow, or just this one cookie (which often always turns into 8 cookies or the whole box!)
Does any of that sound familiar?
That’s when it hit me!
I could create workout videos and meal plans for my clients and send them every couple of weeks. My clients loved the idea and said let’s do it.
This is how Cut the Crap Club was born.
My mission has been and still is, to make healthy living realistic, accessible and doable for everyone and anyone who wants change. Who wants to live a healthier life. Who desires to be stronger, fitter, happier and feel more confident in themselves.
I get how busy we are all, how stressed for time we are. That money is tight. That you are tired and have no energy. That maybe you have low self-confidence and don’t feel you are worth the investment.
But the truth of the matter is this.
Without your health. What do you have?
Not a whole lot.
When we are healthy, when we feel like we’ve got all the energy in the world. When we feel strong. When we feel happy with ourselves. When we love the way we look. When we fit into those pair of jeans from 10 years ago. When we wake up in the morning pain-free.
We feel rich. We can do anything. The world is our oyster.
Your health is your most important asset.
The choices you make about your health is solely your responsibility.
Keep this in mind, every time you put something into your mouth you are either fighting disease or feeding it.
Yes, I know it can be hard and confusing and frustrating. But those things can be overcome and shouldn’t be the things that stop you from reaching success in your life.
How many times have you said, “tomorrow”, or “Monday” or “in the new year”?
How many times have you gone back and forth on a decision to make the healthier choice and take action?
Don’t you think, it’s time to stop the flip flopping, the frustration, the overwhelm and make the leap.
If you believe that you deserve the best health, if you believe you deserve to feel sexy and strong, if you believe you should wake up each day with vibrance and energy, if you believe that you are worth more.
Then I encourage, to become a member of Cut the Crap Club, right now, in this moment.
Too many tomorrows, Mondays and next years have already passed you by.
And I believe you are worth it.
Join now, enrolment will be closing Monday, July 4th at 11pm EDT.
