I Am Under Construction…It Is A GREAT Thing!

I have discovered that everything in life, jobs, relationships, being alive, is always evolving and if I stay “static” or not moving in one area then everything eventually seems like it gets “stuck”. It becomes a force that is very hard to move forward.

The beginning of 2018 brought upon many incidents/accidents that have had me begin to re-evaluate much of what I have been working on.  Not like a problem, only that knowing when many challenges show up, sometimes it is like the universe’s way of saying “HELLO TAMMY!! Are you listening?”

The most prominent that started my year were 2 car accidents less than 2 month’s apart. Both times I was rear-ended and ended up with whiplash and concussions. The second time I was hit, my car that I just purchased less than 6 month’s prior to the accidents, it didn’t make it.

Being that I work primarily in the fitness industry this was very hard physically to see some of the limitations I was having after both accidents.  I had headaches regularly, my body was very sore constantly.  I would easily forget things I had just done or said in the first few weeks following these accidents. It was terribly frustrating at the time.

Thankfully, I know my body well and went directly to my chiropractor and medical doctor right after the accidents. I immediately got the support I needed and have bounced back extremely quickly so I can keep working doing what I love.

That being said, the accidents also opened something up for me. I realized I really had no back up plan if something were to happen that I didn’t “bounce back” again if something else were to happen. The question to myself was “If I am not able to dance anymore, then what?”

I realized this year that my passion is and always will be to support others in discovering what lights them up. Supporting others in finding the relationships they are looking for. Supporting people of all abilities to move and find their groove! Supporting others in making their dreams reality, whether it be fitness goals, relationships, financial, building businesses, creating extraordinary events, and so much more.

The company I have built, the Live OUT LOUD Movement, is so much more than just a fitness program based primarily in Zumba Fitness.

The Live OUT LOUD Movement is a LIFE MOVEMENT.

A place to take all that seems like heavy weights on our shoulders and discover the silver lining within them all to produce extraordinary results in the face of no agreement in life.

I truly believe that everything happens in our lives for a reason. Even all the “bad stuff” that I wish never happened. I see it as it had to happen to show me something that I couldn’t see was available before. In the moment, it never “feels” that way, however the true gift of this MOVEMENT is the opportunity to look more in-depth at what is happening and discover what I/we can’t see right away.  Discovering the knowledge that is hidden deep within what ails us to creating a strong and vibrant life that impacts ourselves and others by what is discovered!

I am in the process of rebuilding new aspects to the Live OUT LOUD Movement and new offerings over the next few months to really dive deep into what is possible through this company to help people in a unique way.

I hope you stick around to see what is next and how it all plays out. I will always continue to dance for as long as my body will let me, you can bet money on that and now is the time for me to take what I have built thus far and expand it far beyond where it is today!

EXCITING TIMES!

I'm under construction and loving it

The Secrets to Living….Shhhhhh…..TELL EVERYONE!

Here it is….the end of the year is upon us.  For some you, you are jumping with joy to start a new year because this one has been all kinds of terrible from your view. For others you are jumping with joy to start a new year because this one was so awesome, you are anticipating your “best year yet!” For another group of people, you are actually BORN today and how cool is that, the WHOLE WORLD is celebrating! I would make it mean they were all so thrilled that I came into the world! HAHAHA!

Whatever your take on New Years and why you celebrate/or don’t it’s all in the world of completion.

Even if you have had what you would consider your worst year ever, look around and see who is there with you.  Do you have people who care about you? Do you have a roof over your head? Do you have food in your belly? Did you laugh at least a couple of times this year? Do you still have all your fingers and toes? In spite of all that happened, did you learn something about yourself you never knew? resilience perhaps?  Really look people…it is all perspective.

There is something to always looking for the silver lining and building upon what has happened in your life.  That is what living IS!

The secret to what living really IS……want to know it? Here it is….

A set of lessons/situations that occur everyday that lead you to your next set of actions or in some cases….in-actions.

That’s it! There you have it! The answer.

Now the challenge is to remember that answer when the next set of “life lessons” stare you down in what appears to be an old-fashioned shoot-out.  It is not easy but it is worth it.

I have had my years of just being thankful that it was finally over.  I even had one year where I was with friends celebrating at  bar and just before the clock rolled over an old friend came over to me and called me….well let’s just say it wasn’t pleasant and we didn’t make plans for dinner anytime soon.

Right up to the last second of the year, things can either look rough OR you can have it be something or someone you learn from and grow stronger and more in tune with who you really are.

If you are a resolution maker, make it AND put your butt on the line to keep it! It is the only way it actually works! 🙂

Don’t let another year go by and you feel lost, hopeless or your goals were not met.  The only way you will feel like this at the end of 2016 is if you did not take your life as lessons and take the actions needed to produce the results you were committed to.

That being said, if you want to create a game plan in the area of relationships, fitness(DANCE your way through 2016!!!), wellness/nutrition, LIFE and you see that a Life and Wellness architect (That’s me!) could support you in having 2016 be the year you blow the door’s off on having an EXTRAORDINARY year to cultivate years to come….Email me below and let’s set up a free consultation.

I truly love you all and am looking forward to all the lessons and life that 2016 may bring! AND if you are reading this and it’s your birthday, HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOU!!!

Benefits of Movement

Let’s Talk…..

Let’s talk a little bit about the Live Out Loud Movement and what is all means and why shall we…….

I am Tammy, the owner and developer and I created this business 5 years ago (going full-time 3 years ago) when I realized how much I love supporting people in getting fit and being healthy….having dealt with a lot of issues in my own personal life and having turned to fitness and health myself to really get well and feel great, I knew it was where I wanted to be.

I have, over the years, worked in and managed gyms and have seen many people who came a couple of times and disappeared into the number of people who would be charged every month for a membership they never used again and I also had my “bad gym” experiences too so let me tell you, I get it!   It is not every gym, some are really phenomenal with their members, others not so much.

For me, I felt a need for me to pursue supporting people on a bigger scale and still being able to provide an intimate encounter that will leave us all connected.  What I mean by that and what has been developing over time, some of it so organically I didn’t even see it myself at first, is a place in which you can come and take on your fitness goals, learn to have fun in your kitchen, eat healthy and when times are tough or you are working on something you need a coach to talk and work with you through it, I am here for you.

The programs I now offer (and some more coming soon) will provide a balance between your fitness programs, goals and how do you actually sustain your body food-wise in a healthy way throughout the day/week/month/year.  Within these 2 programs we work together to develop the program that will be a perfect fit for your lifestyle as well as your fitness goals.  You are not a number with me. You are a person who is actively asking for the support to create the life you want.

Do you ever start a fitness program and not stick to it because “life got in the way…” or “something else came up”?  Yes it happens. However when you can pick the fitness program and way of eating/preparing for the week that fits your lifestyle, others “things” will stop getting in your way.

I want to give you a small piece of some of the work I do: I was working with someone yesterday (no names here) and he was telling me that he was looking for “spiritual fitness that had him feel alive”….after he just finished telling me how much he LOVES adventure fitness…..I worked with him and he realized that every spiritual style of fitness he had tried he quits within 2 sessions.  He was about to join a gym again, with no plan in place. We worked some more to develop a plan of action and used the tools to support him and he is now off to discover what is out there in the world of adventure fitness and he was literally lit up like a christmas tree by what he could see is now possible.

The plan we created will have him go to do his actions we created and we will resume again next week to see what he has discovered and put in place.  We have done work together on his food and cooking for the week and he is now not eating out every night and loves the meals he is preparing.

I listen to what it is you say. We create. You move forward happy and healthy.

This is just a small piece of what I have built with the Live Out Loud Movement and I want to work with you.  If you are ready, I am ready and I want to hear from you.

I work directly with all clients for coaching, fitness and nutrition. The first step is filling in the form below:
