Come Join Us At Our Annual Christmas Brunch!

How does the holiday season sneak up so quickly each year?

I absolutely love the season of friends, family and giving!

Coming up on Saturday December 16th we will enjoy our annual Christmas Party, and we want you there!

 We take great joy in these parties, because we get to come together as one big family. This is an opportunity to bring along your family and share with your loved ones where you have been "Making It Happen."

This is a wonderful opportunity to come together in “regular people” clothes and share a meal and also an opportunity to GIVE.

Last year we started a new tradition of "giving." We used to do a yankee swap each year, but we traded it out to work with a local organization called, "Friends of Forgotten Children." This is totally optional, but in place of a yankee swap gift we would love for you to bring a shoe box with 2 toys and 2 clothing items. Clothing items could be hats, gloves, scarves, etc. During the holiday season we love to share the spirit and make Concord a happier place. Our age range is 10-17 boys and girls. We will assign an age range and gender for each training hour to focus on!

As always this years party will include food, student superlatives (so make sure you let us know you are coming so we know who we are choosing from!), Raffle Prizes (about $800 worth of them!), and lots of laughter and joy!

We do not take for granted that YOU choose to train with US. So, grab your ugly sweater (because oh yeah, that’s a new added feature!) and let us know you are coming.

When: Saturday December 16, 2017

Time: 10:00am until the Party is Over!

Where: Get Fit NH Concord

"I loved the crockpot seminar. It was fun and has been feeding my family for the past several weeks. We loved the cashew chicken and beef stew the best! I liked how we were able to leave with the meal completed and participate. Thank you for putting this on!"

"THANK YOU so much for sending these. I just loved the workshop and look forward to the next one. What a great way to prepare healthy meals quickly."

"I LOVED the Saturday class on crockpot freezer cooking. My husband and I had the balsamic chicken last night and it was great."

Crockpot Freezer Meal Workshop is Returning!

Our crock pot freezer meal workshop was so popular in the spring that we’ve decided to bring it back again! This time we're offering it on a Saturday morning in Epsom.

You cannot delay on this because spots fill up FAST!

"I love cooking, but there are times when I don’t have the opportunity to cook each night."

"Oh no, I forgot to pick up ________ at the store when I went."

These meals are another way to make dinner quickly and easily AND a different way to plan and prep your meals for the week or the month.

You could:

  • Find 5 recipes using only ingredients that can be frozen
  • Write out your grocery list (don’t forget the freezer bags, herbs, spices, oil, and vinegar)
  • Go shopping
  • Chop, cut, prep the ingredients and add them to freezer bags
  • Freeze
  • Thaw slightly and put in a crock pot to cook while you are busy with other things

But wouldn't it be better to avoid steps 1 through 3?

I thought so!

Sign up for the Crockpot Freezer Meal Workshop on December 2nd and we will do the hard lifting for you.

Here are some of the comments from students who participated in our last crockpot workshop:

"I loved the crockpot seminar. It was fun and has been feeding my family for the past several weeks. We loved the cashew chicken and beef stew the best! I liked how we were able to leave with the meal completed and participate. Thank you for putting this on!"

Thanksgiving Schedule PLUS Pies off Thighs!

Can you believe it is already November? I can’t believe it. The brisk weather is here and snow is not too far behind, BUT hopefully before the snow comes we can enjoy Thanksgiving. I don’t know about you, but I could do without the 2014 Thanksgiving blizzard!

Thanksgiving week is going to be a little bit different. Family time for you and us is important stuff so make sure you jot down the whacky schedule so you don’t miss out on the bonus training (and so you don’t show up when we’re not here!)

Monday November 20th- Regular Training Schedule

Tuesday November 21st- Regular Training schedule

WEDNESDAY November 22nd- Regular Training Schedule BOTH locations

Thursday November 23rd- No Training

​Friday November 24th- No training

Saturday November 25th World Famous Pie's Off Thighs ALL family training in Concord at 8AM

We hope you enjoy this holiday season with your family. Thank you for choosing to train with us!

Jumpstart Nutrition Coaching is Tackling How To Survive the Holidays

TRUE STORY.

Our  Jumpstart Nutrition Coaching Seminar is becoming a virtual way to start and stay on top of your nutrition goals. 

We know it can be a challenge for you to get out of the house one more day, so join us from the comfort of your own home. 

On Saturday, November 11th at 9:00am you will have the opportunity for some world class nutrition coaching from Coach Nancy Carlson, Pn2.

Our Jumpstart Nutrition Coaching Seminar is a FREE introductory nutrition coaching seminar, and we encourage all our students to take it at least once. Once is just not enough, as you walk away with your goal for the next month already started. Besides that we'll spend time discovering ways to Survive the Holidays. 

If you are training with us, you have made the commitment to get healthier by getting your body moving well, getting stronger, and building cardiovascular endurance.

But the secret to FAT LOSS, to getting that lean, toned body is always going to be good eating habits.

Those same eating habits will help us to 'Survive the Holidays'.

Do you have these questions when it comes to all the conflicting info out there?

  • How much do I need to eat?
  • Carbs? Protein? Fat? How much is enough? Too much? Too little?
  • How do I find time to make it fit into my busy life?
  • How do I get my kids to eat healthy? Can they eat this way too?
  • Everything in moderation, right?
  • Will you do my cooking for me? (umm....sorry)
  • And How am I going to Survive the Holidays?

While we can't answer every question, we will take a solid hour, go through our Jumpstart Nutrition Manual (you'll get your very own .pdf copy after the seminar), and take time to answer your questions- even tackling How to Survive the Holidays.

The Jumpstart Nutrition Coaching Seminar is hosted by Coach Nancy Carlson, Pn2, who is truly a master at helping busy people fit healthy eating into their crazy busy lives.

IMPORTANT: We only have space for 20 students, and you must pre-register for this FREE coaching opportunity. Once you register, you will receive an email with the Video Conferencing link from Google Hangouts. SAVE THIS EMAIL PLEASE, as you will need it to join.

Don't delay, we want to see you (literally) at our Jumpstart Nutrition Seminar!

Ski Erg World Sprints are HERE

We’re about 2 weeks away from the 9th Annual Ski Erg World Sprints

What are the Ski Erg World Sprints? Great Question! It is an opportunity to see where you stand against other men and women your age in the Ski Erg world. All you have to do it ski erg 1000 meters sometime between Thursday November 9th and  Saturday November 11th. You can do this before or after training. We might recommend before or on that Saturday as the goal is to complete 1000 meters as fast as you can!

The times will be posted into the Concept2 log book and your time will be ranked amongst fellow ski erg lovers around the world. You will be able to see where you rank based on gender and age. 

Did we mention there are prizes involved? It's true. The winners of each age group will earn prizes and if we (Get Fit NH) submit 20 or more individual results we will be entered in a raffle for a new SkiErg. Which we will then raffle off to those who competed. A couple of years ago our own Karl Edelmann won that prize – this might be you year.

We are going to open the Concord gym up from 8:00am to 9:00am on Saturday the 11th, and we want to get at least 20 of y’all into the books.

Who's in?


Pampered Chef and 31 Party

Our FOURTH  annual Pampered Chef and 31 party is approaching! This party is a cool opportunity to get together, hang out and get some holiday shopping done!

Coach Meagan became a Pampered Chef consultant solely for this annual party. It is an opportunity to share some record time meal prep tricks using  the latest and greatest kitchen tools and meal prep supplies.

And of course, we make sure our prepared food travels in style throughout the holidays and even keep your lunch cold with the fun 31 styles. We have had great success with these parties over the last 3 years. The reason why we participate in these parties is because by hosting so that means we earn FREE stuff which we use as raffle prizes for our annual Christmas party (clever, huh?)


We typically earn about $300 worth of free stuff which we turn around and give away to you guys!


On November 4th at 10AM we’ll gather at our Concord location for some brunch, some laughs and some holiday shopping! Get some Christmas shopping done all while enjoying a free meal and good company



We hope to see you there. If you can’t make it – don’t worry! You can still shop using the links below. Let us know if you need a catalog!

I’m Inviting You to Have Coffee With Me

Wanna have coffee with me? (you'll have to make your own, though, because we are on a teleconference) 🙂

We can talk about anything. Well maybe not anything, but if it has to do with training or nutrition it's all fair game. 

  • Maybe you have a question you've always wanted to ask about "why do we do that?"
  • Maybe you're stuck on a plateau and wondering what could be next
  • It could be that you are just starting this thing of better health and just needed to be pointed in the right direction. 
  • Or you might just not get enough of me through the week and want to hang out (that's what I am guessing anyways)

The cool thing is we are going to do it all online. Thats right, you can have coffee with me while you are in the comfort of your favorite cozy chair and I'm in my kitchen. In the past we have had a great crew show up, great conversation, and a lot of fun. Show up early, because only the first 25 can get in!

When: Saturday, October 21

What time: 9:00am for an hour or so

Where: Meet me here virtually through this link.

Pumpkins and Costumes

Halloween is quickly approaching which means it is time to put the kettlebells and dumbbells away and have some fun with PUMPKINS! Squats, deadlifts, press-outs, pumpkin toss, push ups...these are just a handful of things we can do with pumpkins...we will show you just how much fun you can have on the Friday before Halloween! 

Fun Friday, October 27th ALL DAY LONG we are playing with pumpkins (B.Y.O.P) and doing it in style! That's right, test out your costumes early with us. There is no judgement here (unless you don't wear a costume, of course!) We have seen it all- From Richard Simmons all the way to majestic unicorns! 

We can guarentee smiles and laughs on this Fun Friday. So start scouting out your costume and the pumpkin you will bring - the bigger the better, of course! 

Whatever pumpkin you bring must go home with you! We don't need any left overs 😉 

Looking forward to the fun!

Coach Meagan
