Two local fitness and food fanatics have teamed up to offer people tools to help start living a healthier lifestyle.
"Eat clean. Train dirty." That's the mantra for South Delta-based Go Fit Gals.
Personal trainer P.J. Wren has joined forces with clean eating advocate Risse Dalby, who is also currently studying holistic nutrition, and together the pair has launched a web-based healthy living resource.
The website, www.gofitgals. com, offers resources for people looking to slim down, firm up and make a lifestyle change.
"We're out to help people to find ways to be healthy and change their lifestyles," Dalby said.
Launched last week, Go Fit Gals offers online training programs, recipes and weekly menu plans designed to get clients moving and eating cleaner and healthier.
The program is offered entirely online. After signing up, clients have access to downloadable weekly workouts, meal plans and recipes.
The workouts are easily adaptable to be done in a gym or at home, Wren said.
As well, healthy eating does not have to be time consuming or expensive.
Dalby, a mother of three, tests and develops all the recipes in her own kitchen, and the meal plans include prep guides so clients can see what can be done ahead of time, as well as grab-and-go healthy eating options.
Clients will also become a part of the Go Fit Gals community. Dalby and Wren offer tips and encouragement through Facebook and Twitter, they update the Go Fit Gals blog multiple times a week and include a weekly video where they address common questions and issues.
Currently, clients can sign up for a six-week shape up plan. In the new year, Wren said, they're planning on launching a more intense three-week shape up plan designed for people who want to look better for an upcoming event.
Go Fit Gals is also planning on hosting regular challenges, like the Little Black Dress Challenge, which starts later this month.
They are also looking at starting a program for kids, Wren said.
Their goal, they said, is to make it easier for people to make healthy lifestyle changes.
"Anybody can be successful in changing their activity level and changing how they eat," Dalby said.
