Get in great shape for 50

A note from Hitch Fit Trainer Tara:

Get in Great Shape for 50. Dana had a special goal when she started her transformation with me.
She wanted to get into the best shape of her life for her 50th birthday and do a photo shoot with her husband, who was also turning 50.
From day one she was on fire and committed to the process.
Her determination was inspiring – all of this happened during a time when we all celebrate the 4th of July with a few indulgent meals – not Dana, she stayed the course.
As her husband Kevin says it best, 50 is only halftime, and she was out to make the most of this next half. They even made it fun by telling the other one they would be in second place. Having each other as a support system was crucial as they were both winners in the end.
Her transformation is not over, she has new goals and to continue to fine tune her body and not backslide as she had done after a prior transformation. She is proving that you can continue to improve at whatever age and I couldn’t be more proud of her hard work and dedication.
This truly is halftime and she has chosen to make it even better by setting her body up to handle whatever life brings by taking control of her health and fitness to enjoy life.

Dana’s Get in Great Shape for 50 Story:
“My fitness journey really began in my early 40’s. I was at least 40 pounds overweight and miserable. I was active in my younger day while participating in the sports of gymnastics and cheer leading. But once those activities ceased and I became a mom, I let myself go like many do. I wasn’t intentional with my time and all aspects of my life were falling apart. I was failing myself.

Thankfully, I started making myself a priority and got my life back on track. I joined a local gym and started exercising on a regular basis and dropped 25 pounds on my own…but I still didn’t like the way that I looked and felt. I knew my nutrition needed to improve…but I also knew that I needed some professional guidance if I was going to continue to improve.

At the beginning of 2018, I found the Hitch Fit website and after reading through the success stories from others-I knew completing one of their programs was going to be a good fit for me. I committed in 2018 and reached a level of fitness that I never thought was possible. I experienced success in 2018 and dropped 15 more pounds (it’s amazing how our bodies can transform when we fuel our bodies appropriately). I gained nutritional knowledge that I still follow today, but I also know I am one that needs to be pushed in the gym to get the results that I so desire. I am also one who needs the accountability by having a personal trainer/coach that I meet with on a regular basis so I don’t move back to my old habits.

In the summer of 2021, my husband and I will both be turning 50 and we decided to set some hefty health and fitness goals and we decided to join the journey of getting in better shape together. We scheduled a “50th birthday” photo shoot and worked to be in the best shape of our lives at the ripe young age of 50. He recently retired from law enforcement and dreamed of becoming a Personal Trainer/Coach. He is now a member of the Hitch Fit team! I knew that working with him as my Trainer wasn’t an option (I knew I wouldn’t want to follow his advice (gulp)…so I began working with Tara as my coach).

I really enjoyed the process of working with Tara…she knew how and when to push me in the gym. She also made some changes to my nutritional routine so I could get the results that I wanted. I always enjoy the process of getting myself into better shape…and I’ve learned that Hitch Fit always works for me!

I am now a Hitch Fit client for life. If I get to a place where I am unhappy and need the accountability…I always have Hitch Fit.

Even though I’ve finished my most recent transformation…I am going to continue working with Tara. At the age of 50, it’s hard…but with dedication, discipline and the right coach by my side…I won’t slide back to my old habits. Being 50 fit and fabulous is where I want to be! Now it’s time to set some new fitness goals!
