Marissa's Fit Chick Transformation Journey!!

We are so proud to feature Marissa as this week's transformation journey. She has put in the hard work it takes to reach goals, and we congratulate her!! Thank you Marissa for sharing your story here with us, we know it will be an inspiration to many others. 


Hi my name is Marissa. I am 27 years old and up until 5 months ago I had gotten to a point where my body was no longer effectively working for me due to my size. So I decided it was time for me to take back control of my body and most importantly my health. 

Unfortunately I didn't have much support at home, so I had to create a support system for myself. The 1st thing I did was change my diet. I started eating only fresh foods and watching my sodium, sugar and carb intake. Once I felt that I had my diet under control I knew I wanted to start working out. I joined TFC for a few reasons. 

1. I liked that it was a female only class. I already have enough anxiety about working out in front of people let alone men. 

2. I had tried out the class before and really liked how Analisa (my trainer) had created a comfortable and welcoming environment. I feel like TFC is so much more than just a workout class. We do group outings everynow and then and are always in communication with each other through our group FB page. The workouts are always challenging and everyone is always really supportive! 

I also decided to create a youtube channel to keep me accountable with weekly weigh in videos. So far I'm down 58 pounds and 24 inches!!! Having TFC and my YouTube channel has really helped me to stay focused and kept me headed towards meeting my goals.

My goal is to lose 70lbs. I can't believe how far I have already come and I'm only 12lbs away from reaching my 70lb goal. I have found a new goal through my channel to positively inspire and motivate others to reach their own goals to get healthy. If your interested in watching my weight loss journey you can find my weight loss videos at

Tina's Fit Chick Transformation!!!

"I have been with TFC/McKinney since April 2014. I have been following TFC for at least 3 years & always wanted to join but due to my husband’s schedule the only time I could fit in a boot camp was at 5:00 am. With working fulltime & have 2 kids that didn’t always sleep through the night- I couldn’t commit to the 5am. However, April of 2014 I saw a Groupon & decided to give it a shot. I am hooked & 5am isn’t too bad. I’m 36, married & have 2 boys; Coen is 5 & Liam is 3. I work for a Healthcare Staffing firm & wear many hats. My favorite exercise that I love to hate is burpees, the least favorite just depends on the day & how sore I am. I have always been fairly active & could pretty much eat whatever I wanted without consequences. After having 2 kids, my body changed & as I got older my metabolism changed & I realized that I needed to commit to something besides working out at home(because that wasn’t working for me) to keep me in shape. I also have bad genes & have always had high cholesterol & recently found out that I am in the watch zone for being a pre-diabetic so I knew I needed to take action now to live a healthier lifestyle. I’m not a big fan of the scale- I do know I have lost some weight but more importantly my clothes fit better, I feel fitter, stronger & more alive. I do consider to be living a fitter lifestyle & make it a point to be active at least 5 days a week, even if it’s a quick 15 minute HIIT workout. I tell everyone that I know how great Fit Chicks is & encourage them to give it a try. "
Tina kills it, never misses a class and keeps her goals in mind! She started on her mission to lose weight and in the process became so strong and so fit as she continued with us! I'm so proud of her success and am in awe of how much effort she puts forth to living healthy! Go Tina!!

Kyle Texas Fit Chicks: Julia's Inspiring Transformation Story

Fit·ness – the condition of being physically fit and healthy. This is exactly what I believed fitness to be 6 months ago, a condition. A mental condition for people with addictive personalities who let fitness consume all the time in their days and every aspect of their lives. Today, I am embarrassed by my past self and the judgements I made about “fit” people. I couldn’t have been more wrong. I was in denial. I was miserable. I was 6 months into marriage and gaining weight at a rapid pace. And the worst part was my negative attitude towards eating healthy and being physically active. It wasn’t for me. I didn’t have the wherewithal or the motivation to do it/make it a habit– or so I thought.

I needed to make a change and I knew it so I started scanning Groupon for the cheapest alternatives for eating healthy and working out. This is when I found Texas Fit Chicks. I bought the Groupon and within minutes I was exchanging emails with my new trainer Terah, and my first class was set for Monday – April 4, 2016. This was the day that changed my lifestyle and outlook on everything fitness-related. The class was new and exciting each time I went, the other women were welcoming, encouraging, and willing to share their own fitness journeys (without fear of being judged), Terah was positive, motivating, and honest, and I had found the fitness path I wanted to continue down.

My body was changing without me realizing it. I had let my body image get so distorted by my initial weight gain that I wasn’t allowing myself to see my results. Lucky for me, Terah loves the little accomplishments, and lets myself (and the other women) know when a baby muscle has appeared somewhere on our bodies, when our squats get lower, when our pikes get higher, and when we accomplish something that we couldn’t just a few weeks prior. She rubbed off on me. I started to see the little changes that were occurring and started appreciating my accomplishments and my body more.

Since starting TFC I have lost about 10 pounds and a few inches from my waist, arms, thighs, etc. But, most importantly to me, I gained confidence in myself, I gained confidence in my body, and I have gotten physically and mentally stronger. I know that with my continuing TFC journey my strength will continue to increase, my eating habits will continue to get healthier, and the love I have for TFC and the ladies I get to spend three evenings a week with will just get more intense with each passing class because I wouldn’t be where I am today without them.

Fit Chick Transformation: Richardson Evening Texas Fit Chicks!!

I'm a 34-year-old stay-at-home mom of a toddler and a baby, who I still breastfeed. My baby is now almost 1 years old and I decided it was time to get the weight off. I had been eating junk food out of boredom and convenience and it was taking a toll on me. I cleaned up my eating with My Fit Pal for guidance and joined a 3-month plan at Texas Fit Chicks in Richardson Evening Texas Fit Chicks. I told myself I wouldn't miss a single class. Even when I traveled out of town I arranged a personal trainer. I started running again and added an extra day of exercise. Sure enough the weight is coming off. Within my 3 months of better nutrition and workouts, I've lost 31 lbs and multiple dress sizes. I don't get tired lugging the kids around now, and I'm excited to see an improvement in my blood pressure, sugar, and cholesterol! I'm still working on lowering my body fat and I know I will hit my goal with patience and dedication. By no means is my "diet" overly intense. I still enjoy pizza and ice cream with my kids, but in moderation. I'm looking forward to my continued transformation thanks to the support of Texas Fit Chicks and trainer Wendy Lee!

Fit Chick Transformation: Waco Texas Fit Chicks!!

Body Transformation is possible for you! Sign up for a camp at
, and start your fitness journey! 

They say the best teachers are those who have struggled themselves. Well, I struggled alone, but you don’t have to. Check out my own transformation!

My mommy tummy is still there and I'm not yet totally ripped. But I have confidence to post a picture of myself on Facebook, in a bathing-suit. For someone who used to hide behind my kids in photographs, that is a big deal.

In 2010, my husband was diagnosed with a Chronic Illness and was hospitalized 10 times in 6 years. In that time, we had two lovely children who kept me smiling during the darkness - a big burden to carry on their sweet, little shoulders. 

Living far from family in Germany, with a husband in the hospital or sick at home, I was taking care of two children alone and working for much of the time. At the end of the day, I escaped with food, wine, and general “vegging-out”. 

I reached 180 pounds and gave my hope away along with my skinny jeans. 

But somewhere, deep down in my mommy tummy, a fighting voice told me I could be healthier and happier. 

After months of hard work, I lost over 30 pounds. My fitness levels are fantastic. 

My story is not unique. Life throws things at all of us. You women are amazing in all you do to handle it and take care of others at the same time. 

But to truly take care of others, you must first take care of yourself. Take this step for yourself and those you love. Get fit and healthy.

Fit Chick Transformation: Nicole @ Westover Hills TFC!!

Texas Fit Chicks Westover Hills, San Antonio, TX Trainer – Jessica Luna Testimonial –

Nicole's Fit Chick Transformation!!

Let’s just begin this story by saying that Texas Fit Chicks changed my life! I have spent more than half of my life overweight. I never exercised, ate whatever I wanted whenever I wanted, and was just enjoying life while not ever getting on a scale to weigh myself and face reality.

In 2013 I gave birth to my daughter and had only found out my weight because of my regularly scheduled sonograms. I thought I would start working out after having her, but we all know what happens after we have babies. The last thing we want to do or have time for is working out. So months went by and I was still very much overweight, 250 lbs to be exact. I started going to Zumba classes in 2014 and did drop about 25 lbs over the course of a year, but I was still eating whatever I wanted (mostly fast food and junk food). I eventually plateaued and realized I needed to intensify my workouts and change the way I was eating.

In early 2016 I signed up to participate in the HEB Slim Down Show Down through work. At this time I also started jogging/walking at the gym and at the track at work. This was the beginning of a lifelong change for me. As part of the program, we were required to download MyFitnessPal. This little app opened my eyes and changed the way I would look at food for the rest of my life. I could not believe the amount of calories I was putting into my body. I started obsessively counting calories and I found myself avoiding certain foods because I did not want to put that many calories into my app. I had now taken a baby step to eating healthier food and noticing the types of food I was taking in.

Now I needed to step it up with my fitness plan. I saw a Groupon for Texas Fit Chicks in March of 2016. At first I was hesitant. Can I really do boot camp? Am I fit enough? What if I slow everyone else down? Why spend money on something I may not even want to continue past the first week? But I purchased the Groupon knowing that I would have to use it because I had paid for it! I went on a cruise in late April and gained 8 lbs. I came back from the cruise and started boot camp at the Texas Fit Chicks Westover Hills location with Jessica Luna the following week, May 16th, 2016.

My starting weight was 224 lbs. I have been going to camp for a little over 3 months. I now weigh 183 lbs and I have lost a combined total of 20 inches from my entire body. But this is more than just about the numbers. This is about how I feel. I feel sexy again. I feel beautiful again. I feel in love with my body again. I feel energized, motivated and determined to grab life by the horns and conquer every day. I can work out in the morning, go to work all day, spend quality time with my husband and daughter in the evening, and go to bed feeling accomplished and ready to take on the next day! I know that I am now on a journey to a healthier happier me and I am enjoying the ride. I am here to tell all you strong beautiful women that it can be done. It won’t be easy and it will take sacrifices, but in the end it can be done, and you will love yourself for it! TFC STRONG!!

Fit Chick Transformation: Denton Texas Fit Chicks!!

Four years ago the picture on the left was taken, when I saw it I immediately called my husband and said "Life has to change!" We had baby #2, my energy, confidence & happiness was shot, genetics were starting to creep up on me!

I was so excited when found Texas Fit Chicks! Women only, 3 days a week, like minded fitness friends, new workouts, meal plans, empowering environment - SIGN ME UP! 👊❤💪🌸 That was the best choice! For 4 years, I have spent my mornings with the most amazing chicks & trainers who empower, encourage & motivate each other & myself. Chicks I wouldn't have met without TFC and who have a very dear place in my heart! ❤ My news feed is filled with positive, encouraging pictures & words that help my days start on a positive note! 

Yes, life is hectic, crazy & busy but I carve out the mornings for me. I work full time, I have 2 crazy boys and an even crazier husband, we have church, sports, family time & life that pulls us all kinds of directions ....BUT they support me and encourage me to stay on track! I am grateful they push me to keep on track! I know I am making myself better for THEIR FUTURE! I will be able to chase them when they are young, I will be able to move things when they move out & I will be able to do the same with their kids!

Working out produces endorphins, endorphins make you happy! So see, it's not always about a certain size or number on the scale! It's also about surving stressful times. Being a part of the #TFCFamily has helped me thru some of the most challenging times in my life! Those days I wanted to curl up in bed and cry, those days I was exhausted, those I was stressed to the max - drowning in life, those days I thought "I just can't!".... Working out got me thru it, it gave me the energy to conquer whatever life threw at me!  It's not just about hitting a certain size or number, it's about maintaining a healthy lifestyle!! Its about falling in love with the process of taking care of you, your mind, body and spirit! 

Yes, I am tired at the end of the day - who wouldn't be when you are up at 4am and hit the day full force with excitement - but I dont regret it because it's from pushing myself & those around me to become better, I am focused on healthy choices in life, food & fitness! I have fulfilled my days & lived my purpose!
