A Get Fit NH Family Member Could Use Our Help!

Some of you may know Get Fit NH Concord 5AM friend, Joe Morrison. 

In October 2016, Joe was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. This is a rare and incurable blood cancer. Joe has completed two rounds of chemotherapy, but his counts are still not where the doctor would like them to be so the next step is for Joe to have stem cell transplant.

This stem cell transplant will require joe to be hospitalized for at least 11 days and then he will be quarantine to his home and in sterile environments for up to 3 months depending on how quickly his immune system recovers. He will not be allowed any visiots or leave his home as everything in the outside world carries germs and could compromise his immune system.

His wife, Susan, will be home with Joe until the doctors clear him to resume normal life. In an effort to help this wonderful couple during this hard time we would like to organize a gift card drive. Since Joe and Susan will be house-bound for a few months they will need to order necessities online and use Hannaford to-go and other services of that nature to minimize outside exposure. In addition to your contribution, we know joe and Susan would find peace in your words on encouragement so please include that with contributions! 

Here is how you could benefit from a contribution:

With a gift card donations comes raffle tickets! The raffles prize will be a $500 gift certificate to Get Fit NH to be applied toward your monthly coaching dues!  Here is how you earn raffle tickets:

Donation amounts:

$20 = 2 raffle tickets

$25= 3 raffle tickets

$40= 5 raffle tickets

$50 or more= 11 raffle tickets

Gift card suggestions

Visa/Mastercard gift card

Hannaford's

Rite Aid

CVS

Wal-Mart

We are accepting gift cards now through Friday, August 10th and we will draw the $500 gift certificate winner on Monday, August 13th!

Thank you so much for your consideration and thank you to Tara Brassaw for her hard work in organizing this!

August MOVEMENT Challenge

In August we are going to have a friendly competition between yourselves and between the training hours. What will you win, you ask? Bragging rights, pride and of course strong muscles! Here is how it works!

For the month of August we will have a challenge of the day for Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Those who accept the challenge will be given an index card so you can personally record your repetitions. Your training hour will also have a designated "block" on the white board where you will tally your reps each day for your class. This is a great tactic to scare the other training times with your big numbers!

Monday: Sled push day! For the month of August we will leave out the sled so you can push it (on Mondays) to get points for yourself and for your class. 1 tally is down and back on the green turf. This can be done before or after training. Please just make sure you are cognizant of your surroundings. We don't want to clip any ankles with the sled- youch!  

Tuesday: Sled pull day! Again, the sled will be out and 1 tally is the length the green turf down and back. You will mark your points on your index card and also on the white board for your training hour. 

Thursday: Ski erg day! 1000 meters will earn you 1 tally for yourself on your index card and 1 tally for your training hour on the white board! You can come in early or stay late to get your Ski Erg meters in!

Friday is for farmers! Farmer walk with 2 kettlebells or 2 dumbbells the length of the green turf down and back will earn you 1 tally for yourself and 1 tally for your training hour! This can be done before or after training on Fun Fridays! ​

The challenge of the day must be done on the designated day to earn points for yourself and for your team. If you will not be at training then they cannot be made up. All the more reason to shoot for perfect attendance in August!

Who will end up with the most tallies on their index card and which training hour will have bragging rights and the strongest muscles of all? We will have to see! Stay tuned for those cards in training!!!

Kicking off: Monday August 6th at 5 AM!

Wrapping it up: Friday August 31st, 2017 at 7:45PM

And the Winner is……

Katie from Team Mental Toughness- Extra Effort

I am so proud of those that participated in Sizzlin Summer Slimdown 2018. This year our challenge was a Coach driven as each person chose a coach to work with for six weeks. It was a group effort and we all need peeps. 

Get Fit NH also awarded the individual with the biggest percentage of inches lost from their hips and waist. 

Katie chose Team Mental Toughness- Extra Effort. With her team behind her she won the Grand Prize of over $2400. I'll let Katie tell you more of her story. 


"In April of 2017 I began my weight loss journey. The boot camp I go to runs a weight loss challenge every spring. I hadn’t been going regularly, but decided to finally get serious about losing weight. I started off at almost 180 lbs - always tired, in pain, and depressed. I struggled to keep up with my young son. During the 8 week challenge, I lost 25 lbs. I continued to lose over the summer and by October I had lost almost 45 lbs. Then my mom got cancer, and things got stressful and the pounds started packing back on. I stopped going to boot camp and gained 15-20 lbs back over the winter. I was sad and frustrated because I had been so close to my goal.

Fast forward to this April. I was really looking forward to the weight loss challenge because I was set on reaching my goal, and hopefully winning the grand prize. It wasn’t always easy, but I stayed focused with the help of my family and coach. I ate clean, got back into hiking, ran up and down my driveway too many times, and push mowed my lawn with my old jalopy mower (the one that caught on fire last summer, lol).

During the challenge, I lost 19 lbs and several inches off my waist and hips (the inches were what counted in the contest). I’m down almost 50 lbs from last year and only 6 lbs away from my goal weight. This past Saturday was the reveal party to announce the winner... I knew I did well, but I had no idea how well others had done (there were over 200 people participating). To make this long story short, I did it - I won!

I’d really like to thank my amazing and patient husband Jon who was there to listen to me stress, help me out, and who was happy to stay home with Jonathan while I was off hiking or exercising (even on Father’s Day). He even ate veggie wraps that tasted like lawn.

Also a huge shout out and thank you to my coach, Nancy Carlson of Get Fit NH. You make training personal and fun, and you’re always there to push me harder or email me when I don’t show up. You changed my way of thinking and taught me how to eat right and not diet, which is huge. And, you are a huge inspiration to me. During training I always think, what weight would Nancy pick up?You’re old enough to be my mother and you’re still stronger than me 😜 (and you have a great sense of humor, lol).

So in closing, here are some before and after photos, my coach and I, and a photo of my first purchase with my prize money - a new push mower!"


Katie did an amazing job. She rocked it and so did many of you. Katie didn't stop after S3 last year. She kept on pursuing her goal. The take away is life can get in the way if you allow it or you can make a decision and keep on going until the job is done.  Katie has more to go and with that new lawn mower and all of Get Fit NH behind her, she will be there soon. 

Keep Making It Happen,

Coach Nancy

Introducing Your 8-Week Super Summer Slimdown!

When we first opened the 6-Week "TBT Coach's Challenge" back in April, I had people who wanted to train with us asking me, 'It's really hard for me to start now. Can you do something for the Summer?"

After finishing our 6-Week "TBT Coach's Challenge", and seeing the incredible results, I thought that was a great idea!

So based on the requests I've received over the past couple weeks, I've decided to open a Summer Slim Down group to begin in July and run through August.

For those of you who have been on the fence about getting started training, or just couldn't start until now, this is for YOU.

Starts July 9, 2018 and runs through August 31, 2018, So Don't Delay!

Snag Tips and Trade Secrets for Meal Prep During S3

I confess I am a spy. As a coach I can peak into each team's Facebook group and also see some answers for Coach Catalyst. After week one, I have to say I am very impressed. You are making all the Get Fit NH coaches very proud.

I also know that week one is often followed by harder weeks 2 and 3. It is these weeks that can solidify or crush our spirits. Every Saturday during S3 I will be at Live Juice in Concord from 9-10 to help you out best with S3.  I want to focus on making next week simpler by making meal prep easier. I'm coming gear with ideas you can implement to make grocery shopping easier, cooking faster, and meals simpler to stick to the plan. I'll even bring my manual so you can see the notes I've made.

They open right at 9am so I'll be waiting at the door for them to unlock it. I have to leave at 10 to pick up my son. But an hour each Saturday is yours if you can make it. I am opening this to all S3 teams.

This hour will also give you a chance to be encouraged, inspired, accountable to others. Its a win/ win.
Remember every Saturday 9-10am at Live Juice in Concord on Main St. during S3. 

Keep Making It Happen!

Who's with us?

When: Monday, May 28, 2018

Time: 8 AM

Location: Get Fit NH Concord

Updated Concord Morning Training Schedule

Starting next Monday 5/14/2018 we will be changing the morning schedule just a little bit. We are hoping that this small change will help smooth out transition time between classes and make it easier for everyone getting to and leaving class. 

Our new morning schedule will be:

  • 5 AM
  • 6:10 AM
  • 7:20 AM
  • 8:30 AM

It is a small change but should help the flow move better in the morning!

We hope everyone has a fantastic weekend and we look forward to seeing everyone at the new class times on monday.

REGISTRATION CLOSED. THANK-YOU!

Fast Action Bonus! You get to choose your own coach by being one of the FIRST 20 to sign up for her/his team!

What is the S3 (Sizzlin' Summer Slimdown) 2018 "TBT Coach's Challenge"?

TBT stands for "Total Body Transformation", and we are going to take 6-weeks, right before summer starts, to get some work done toward that goal! And this year we are adding a twist: Our 5 coaches are going to be "Team Leaders" and use their own special voodoo, magic, and ninja tactics to help you get better than ever. 

When we were thinking about how to split up the teams, we figured we would let each participant choose their own coach, but then Dean pointed out he probably wouldn't have anybody on his team, so we felt bad and decided to try to even it out a little.

After registration, you will be sent a survey asking you for your Top 3 choices for coach.

You can choose from:

  • Team Adam
  • Team Brian
  • Team Dean
  • Team Meagan
  • Team Nancy
  • Team Blake - wait never mind, wrong show...

As a fast action bonus, the first 20 to ask for a particular coach are guaranteed to get their top choice - so if you really, really, really want to have a specific coach, skip to the bottom and sign up right now.

Here's What You Get

Before I go any further I want to whet your appetite, so here's a rundown of what you get when you signup:

A New "TBT Challenge" Success Manual, as well as an All-New Recipe Guide!

Exclusive Downloadable Sizzlin' Summer Slimdown Worksheets (.pdf), which include:

Around 50% of the scoring for the contest will depend on you checking in daily and get the habits done. You can go back and read the lessons at any time, to help you stay on track.

The other cool thing we can do is setup teams right in Coach Catalyst. That way each coach can communicate with your team without sharing their secrets with all the other teams. Secrets are allowed! 🙂

Fit3D

Fit3D is an innovative 3D body scanner that captures a 3D, 360° image of the human body and extracts the most commonly used measurements tracked for fitness progress, all with just a 40 second scan. You will be using Fit3D three times during the contest to measure your waist and hips; once before the contest, once at the mid-point, and at the end. The more you lose off your waist and hips, the more points you score!

Private Team Groups

Each coach will also invite you into their personal and private Facebook group - for your team only! If you are not a Facebook groupie no worries - it's optional - but there is gonna be a lot of cool stuff going on in there, so you might wanna make an exception!

How Does My Team Win?

Scoring Habit Points

You earn points for your team based on your percentage of daily habit tracking compliance using Coach Catalyst. Each team members score will be calculated, and those will be totaled for the team. Here's the scale:

  • 90% or greater compliance = 100 points
  • 80 - 89% = 80 points
  • ​70 - 79% = 70 points
  • ​60 - 69% = 60 points
  • 50 - 59% = 50 points
  • <50% = 0 points

Here's an example:

Thelma achieves a compliance score of 92%  = 100 points
Louise achieves a compliance score of 78% = 70 points
The team would score the average = 85 points​

Scoring Results Points

This one is really simple. You earn 10 points for each % average that you lose off your waist and hips. Each team members score will be calculated and added to the team total.

Here's an example:

Bruce loses 4% off his waist and Wayne loses 6%. The average is 5%, so the team earns 50 points.

Bruce loses 3.5% off his hips and Wayne loses 1%, so the average would be 2.25%, or 22.5 points.

The team total "Results Points" would be 77.5 - easy peasy!​


Bonus Points

Your team can earn up to an additional 20 points if everyone completes the mid-contest Fit3D scan by May 26th. We will give 20 to everyone on the team who does the scan and take the average. Those 20 points could be huge, so don't miss them!


So what would team "In It All The Way" Final Score be? 85 habit points + 77.5 results points + 20 bonus points (they were really on top of things) = 182.5 total points. Can you beat that? 🙂


And yes, there will be CASH prizes!

This year we are going to have a GRAND PRIZE winner, and a TEAM WINNER

Like last year, we are going to split the entry fees, with the winners getting 50% of the entry fees, and the remaining going toward expenses for running the contest and the HUGE party we will have at the end!

Here's the breakdown:

  • The Grand Prize Winner Will Receive 25% of the Pool (Last year that would have been over $2000!!!)
  • The Team Winners Receive Prizes Worth 25% of the Pool
  • The Coach of the Winning Team Receives A $500 Bonus!

How's THAT for some sweet swag?  CHA-CHING!
