Chick Transformation: Frisco/Little Elm Texas Fit Chicks


Meet my friend Jennifer! She has been with me for a couple months now and is seeing some great results. Not only does she work hard - she has the BEST attitude and always smiles in class!

She says: When I started I was a size 10 weighing 170. I just left the mall with size 6 pants and weighed in at 149 today!!! I love texas fit chicks!


"I knew I needed to do something. My clothes were uncomfortably tight and I was just not happy with my body. I knew going to the gym, lifting weights and cardio wasn't gonna cut it for me. I need to be held accountable in order to commit to be fit. So I started looking for boot camps and kick boxing clubs. I stumbled upon Texas Fit Chicks and it just felt right. I made the 4 week commitment. I was hooked my first week. I love the group, the morale support and that you get called out if you skip. There's the accountability I was looking for! I find myself doing things I didn't think I could do. I love that there are modifications for the exercises. That leaves no room for excuses. It's amazing that in one hour I can burn so many calories. I leave feeling exhausted and accomplished. As my Texas Fit Chick trainer says: "If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you" and I'm definitely seeing changes in the mirror, on the scale and in my clothes. I've recommitted myself for 3 months, but realize I probably should have done 6 months. I found a place where I don't feel awkward or out of place while working out and that's a great feeling. Thank you Texas Fit Chicks Frisco/Little Elm!"

Chick Transformation: East Carrollton Texas Fit Chicks




"I started with Texas Fit Chicks almost a year ago and it has been an amazing year! I gained a little over 80 lbs with my son 2 years ago and thought the weight would just fall off like it always had...It didn't. I was so miserable, and always ducked out of photos, I even avoided friends, I was so embarrassed and angry I had let myself get like this. I started an Advocare challenge with my sister last November and saw some results but I needed something more. I then found Texas Fit Chicks on Groupon and decided to check it out. My first day I couldn't even do 1 burpee, my 5 lb weights were soooo heavy and I was sore for days after but I loved it! The results seemed immediate and that gave me the final push to really commit. Now 2 minutes of burpees is doable and now my 12 lb weights are soooo heavy. I have reached my goal weight, down almost 50 lbs, and I get to buy smalls and even some extra smalls! Thank you to all the chicks in my class, you all make it so much easier to get up before dawn, we have so much fun and Wendy, you are such an inspiration! I look at all the girls in class and see such transformations and determination and it pushes me to go harder!"

TFC: A Valuable Christmas Gift!!



As Christmas nears and you start to think about what gifts you would like; we wanted to share a great idea from one of our Texas Fit Chicks Trainers! 

"One of the BEST gifts I ever asked for at Christmas was for my family to all chip in on my Texas Fit Chicks membership!! As an adult, you usually buy what you want when you want it. It can be challenging for your loved ones to find something that you really want! I knew what I really wanted was to workout, it made me happy, it gave me energy, it gave me confidence, it toned my body & kept me healthy!!! SO instead of getting a bunch of smaller gifts my hubby helped coordinate all my family investing in one BIG one that added so much to my life!! Think about it ladies ~ the gift of health is THE BEST!!! SO Have Texas Fit Chicks at the TOP OF YOUR CHRISTMAS LIST THIS YEAR!"

Tis The Season!

Chick Transformation: Evie @ Cypress Texas Fit Chicks!!!




"At the age of 44 years old, I was starting to feel that my body could no longer keep up with my busy lifestyle. I have a fabulous career traveling all over the country which requires me to be on my feet quite a bit. Plus I have a wonderful family which consists of a very active husband and 10 year old son.

My weight was at an all time high of 270 pounds and I was on the verge of becoming diabetic. My feet and ankles would be swollen at the end of every day, I new I had to do something about my weight for my family and more importantly for myself.

I read a book called Wheat Belly which really taught me how to eat a more healthy gluten free diet. I was able to drop some weight and build momentum. Then for around 6 months my weight stayed the same.

I noticed my neighbor who had a baby recently was looking pretty buff. I asked her what she was doing and she told me about Texas Fit Chicks. She offered to take me with her so I could try it out. Knowing I could never make a 5 a.m. class I reluctantly agreed to go and check it out once. I am not going to lie, after the first class I thought I was going to die! But..this class was different than going to a gym. It was all women and no judgement. The trainer kept a close eye on me to make sure I was making the appropriate adjustments. She and all the others were so supportive. I decided to sign up for 1 month. I told myself that if I stuck with it for one month my reward would be to sign up for three months. Three months later I was rockin' and Rollin' on the weight loss and rewarded myself with 6 more months. Then for the first time since I joined I had a weight gain instead off loss. I felt defeated and told my trainer that I didn't know what I was doing wrong.

She suggested I take a closer look at my calorie intake. That very day she sent me caloric goals to stick within for weight loss. I was religious about following her caloric recommendations. This taught me a very important lesson, I was still over eating even though I was eating gluten free. So I taught myself to limit my portions and amount of snacking.

I was going to be out of town for my monthly weigh in so I asked Marissa to weigh me in early. She said "is that right? Step on the scale again," then she said "you lost 15 pounds since your last weigh in." She and I both were a little teary eyed, I said "we make an amazing team."

I am still not at my goal weight do my story is not finished yet. But I have consistently continued to drop weight since the I have both diet and exersize under control: I get compliments daily about how good I am looking. My body is taking shape.

Not too long after my big month of weight loss I was able to fulfill a life long dream if mine to meet Oprah Winfrey. My boss called me up to tell me that Oprah was going to be attending one of our events and she wanted me there. So I hopped a plain to Chicago to meet Oprah. It was so gratifying to not only meet my the person I have admired since my role model for high school, but I was able to actually look amazing in the fitted new dress I purchased after my weight loss. Thank you Texas Fit Chicks and my trainer Marissa for making me look so good next to Oprah. Oh yes, in case your wondering, Oprah is just as amazing in person as she is on T.V."

Thank you,
Evie Baron-Hernandez

Chick Transformation: West Allen Evenings Texas Fit Chicks




"Life for me has been an up and down roller coaster of weight gain, weight loss, severe depression and extreme happiness. Unfortunately weight and happiness have always went hand in hand. This way of thinking and living was tearing me apart piece by piece. I was not happy unless I felt thin and unfortunately for me, the majority of my life I have been considered overweight. 

That's where Kit Tozier and Our West Allen Evening Texas Fit Chicks came into my life. I remember my very first day of camp a little over 6 months ago as if it were yesterday. Before even going to camp that day I wrote in my daily food log (a new thing I had started) "I feel ugly, worthless, and most of all alone."

Without the unity I feel from our group I know I would not have been successful! Kit is the driving force behind a physically tough, muscle building, cardio enhancing program that really works. Each and every week I look in the mirror and I can not believe what I see. Kit's personality always shines and is always relentless. I can promise anyone if they show up, suck it up, and make no excuses this program will work! 

Boot camp, Kit and all my fellow chicks changed my life, my body, and my mind. I tell everyone I meet, and I'm telling whoever is reading this now, that I've learned from TFC to be successful at anything in life you need support, drive, and accountability. That's what I get from my fit chicks and so can you!

I have lost 79.6 pounds and 9 pants sizes! I'm strong and I feel better than ever! :)

Loving my chicks always, 
Angel Harrier "

Chick Transformation: Denton Unicorn Lake TFC



"I joined Texas Fit Chicks in March of this year after a friend recommended it to me. I had been complaining about how I hated my body and I needed to make a change. I was so intimidated to try something new, but that first free class turned out to be the best workout I had ever had! Christy is so nice and funny, but also takes the workouts seriously and pushes you to be stronger. The first 4 weeks of Texas Fit Chicks boot camp I dropped 13 lbs. and felt so much better about myself. I joined again in September and in the last 7 weeks I have seen even more results! At first I was measuring my success by my weight, but now I am more focused on how I look. I have reached my size 6 goal, down from a size 12! I know this would not have been possible without the fun atmosphere and accountability that Texas Fit Chicks provides! I am so much happier and confident with my body!"

Texas Fit Chicks has a solution for you ~ and a HOLIDAY discount to help keep you on track!! We know that schedules can get a bit crazy and travel can interfere with your attendance at camp, so if you let your trainer know when you will be out of town when you start your session, you won't lose those workouts! You will be allowed to make them up when you return.

We also want to give you the gift of SAVINGS and are offering our Fit For Less package (regularly $129/mo with a 3 session commitment) for just $99/mo for 3 sessions!! That brings camp down to just 8.25/session with your trainer and you're committed through the holiday season!! 

Your trainer will check in on you if you miss camp ~ that accountability is PRICELESS and will keep you on track through the temptations of holiday parties and all the goodies that will surround many of us from now till New Years.

Chick Transformation: Bonnie

From East Allen Texas Fit Chicks ~ Chick Transformation ~ Bonnie!!

"I was a reluctant Fit Chick. Although I knew that I needed to do something, I had tried diets and exercise programs before and they never stuck. They would last a month or so and then I would quit. When a friend sent me an email for a Groupon to Texas Fit Chicks, I thought it would turn out like the others. Boot camp just sounded too hard for me and it was too early in the morning. I was not an athlete nor did I want to be an athlete. I wanted an "Easy" button. However, I did buy the Groupon and started the following Monday with my friend. And Monday was tough!! I don't think there was one set of exercises that I could finish. I came home sweaty, exhausted and ready to quit. I just needed to make it through the month with my friend and then I was done! Whew!

But it was funny how quickly my body adapted. By week two, my body had adjusted to getting up early and although I still needed some modifications, I could make it through the workout. It was not very long ago that I hated to hear Jaime say "Tabata," but now, I am up for that challenge! I started doing push-ups on my toes and not on my knees. I think what impressed me most about my body was how it adjusted to the stability ball. When I first started, I felt so insecure with the ball. It would roll and I didn't have the strength in my core to keep it in place. I have not mastered it, but I can tell that I am much stronger.

Another great thing that happened for me, was that my eating habits changed. I believe that when I started working out, hard, my body started craving fuel instead of just food. I have been on diets before that limited sugary, salty and processed foods but it was difficult for me to stay on them. I still craved junk and fast foods. However, after a couple of weeks of boot camp, I just naturally started eating healthier. I believe my body craved the whole foods that it needed.

Jaime is an AMAZING trainer and I love her as my coach. She keeps things fresh and new, challenges us with our weights and cardio and encourages us to eat healthier. Her Facebook posts keep me motivated throughout the week. And we are participating in a 5K, together, as a Fit Chicks Team. I am so glad that I have found something that works for me and I plan to stay a Fit Chick for a long time!"

Tricks To Keep Weight Off!

Trick-or-Treat ... parties are approaching and with changes to your routine, things can get a bit out of whack when it comes to your fitness plan. That's part of the reason that the average American gains between 5-7 lbs during this season. Halloween is just the beginning of the big holiday season so we wanted to share a few simple tricks that can help when it comes to AVOIDING HOLIDAY weight gain!


  • Don't go to the party hungry. Most likely it won't be celery being served as hors d'oeuvres.
  • Limit alcohol at the party. We all know that alcohol messes with your metabolism, but it can also lower your will power to not over-indulge in all the fattening treats (not to mention all the empty calories you will get!)
  • Drink plenty of water. Should go without saying...but increase the amount of water you drink daily, and you won't feel as hungry
  • Keep tabs on caloric totals in your mind. I am not suggesting journaling your food while you are on vacation (although not a bad idea...) - but try to practice "mindful eating" - don't just eat to be eating
  • Only eat when you're hungry. What a concept! :)
  • Know the calorie count of what you're about to eat, to decide if it's worth it. Sometimes it is worth it for that piece of pecan pie....but ignorance is NOT bliss when it comes to eating that way for a solid day or weekend! Decide what you want to indulge in, and make that one or 2 things - and not 8 or 9!! Skip the rolls if you plan to have a piece of pie, etc.
  • Exercise. Your body will feel better and you can work off those extra calories
  • Think about all the hard work you have done up to this point to get where you are. On average, an hour of boot camp burns around 400-500 calories for most women. That can be completely undone by some cheesecake or pecan pie. If you put it in that perspective it might make you think twice about going for a second round of dessert :)
It is so frustrating to see everything you've worked hard for be lost so quickly. Hopefully these tips will help you maintain control of your health and fitness over the holiday season. It's much easier to stay on a roll than to get on a roll!

Chick Transformation: Carolyn

Like many women, after high school I slowly began to gain weight. Each year, I would gain a few pounds. I would tell myself that it was "normal" and never did anything to lose the extra weight. That is, until I started thinking about starting a family. At the time, I was about 90 pounds over weight, making me clinically obese. I made the decision to try a pre-packed weight loss program. It worked for me and I did lose about 35 pounds, but I quickly realized that it would not be a life-long "fix" for my weight "problem." I knew that I needed to find an exercise/eating program that would help me to make life-long changes to which I would be able to stick long-term. That's when I found Texas Fit Chicks. I had a friend that had been doing TFC for a while and suggested that I try it. I was a little skeptical about doing a "boot camp", but I joined Meridith's camp and was hooked in no time. Since joining TFC, I have found that my stress levels (my trigger to over eat) have lowered, making it easier to eat a healthy diet. I have also learned the habits that I need in order to meet my long-term life style goals. I am thrilled to say that since joining Meridith's camp I have been able to lose 40 pounds, at least 17 inches, 6 BMI points, and 6% body fat. Although, I still have goals to achieve, I know now that I can reach them and will be able to maintain my healthy lifestyle long-term.

Thank you, Meridith and TFC

Texas Fit Chicks Trainer Tip: Soreness Soak






Soreness Soak
 2 cups Apple Cider Vinegar, 2 cups Epsom Salt
Take a shower or bath first, this is ONLY a soak. Run a tub of water as hot as you can stand (to your tolerance only). Place ingredients into water and SOAK for at least 20 minutes. This has an analgesic effect and will reduce soreness and aches.
