She now does more of HIIT interval training, yoga and mainly her Get Fit Guide! The Get Fit Guide helps to create a healthy, fitness oriented lifestyle to achieve your goals. She is an ACE Certified personal trainer as well as Holistic Nutrition Coach. She has a degree in theater and a minor in art history.
Workout: The Get Fit Guide is based on the way that I train! It’s a combination of bodyweight and dumbbell exercises that I’ve found to be the most effective for myself and when incorporating this type of training with my clients! It’s time effective and uses minimal equipment so if you have some dumbbells, a chair and 30 minutes you can get a killer workout in! It’s mainly my guide that I described above! It has lower body, upper body and total body days along with core work and some cardio thrown in! I do this and then of course any YouTube workouts I film!
Diet: I take vitamins and a greens powder supplement but other than that I just do my best to stick with real whole food as often as possible. So things like lean meat, fish, veggies, lots of fruit, nuts/seeds and some whole grains! I’m also big on balance and living a life that makes you happy so if I’m feeling Oreos or ice cream I’ll have that too! Just not consistently!

7. Natalie Jill
Natalie Jill is a single mom, she works full time, she is about 41 years of age , She has an auto immune disease called CELIAC. She has been through hardships and has courageously dealt with adversity and has overcome and accomplished all her goals through self accountability.
Workout: My workouts are short, intense and sweaty! I get in there and I WORK. Head phones on, hat covering my eyes- intense. I move quickly and do a bunch of intervals. I love jump roping between sets, sprints, box jumps, anything to keep my heart rate up! Other than two dedicated “leg days” I usually work all upper body together circuiting it and putting some cardio intervals in between sets.
Diet: I eat a natural, unprocessed food diet. If it grew I eat it! Basically I look for foods in its most natural state and I make sure I eat a LOT of fruits and vegetables. Although I do not eat vegetarian, I do eat heavily plant based. I DO avoid gluten (which is the protein found in wheat rye and barley) not only because I am a celiac, but because when eating unprocessed natural foods, those are naturally gluten free anyway.
