What can I say except….LOOK AT THOSE ABS!!  WOW!  This is ONLY in 8 weeks!  Dory has worked her belly plumb off.  When she approached me about working with me she knew something had to change.  She already worked out, so that wasn’t going to be an issue.  Dory truly thought she was eating right as well.  She knew she probably had a few changes that needed to be made, but wasn’t sure what they were.  I LOVE working with people who REALLY want to change because they DO get the best results!

8 week #testimonial:
scale wins – 13.5 pounds lost.
non-scale wins – I feel overall wellness, have more energy, and while it sounds odd I’m just happier. I so love reading posts and learning through this supportive group. I am inspired by the hard work, determination, and perseverance you all give to improving life!
what I’ve learned – I met my weight loss goal but I’m going for 4 more pounds. Anneliese and I had the conversation that maybe my body won’t cooperate with me. I have struggled to do much more than go up and down a few ounces since I hit 124 a week or so ago. I’m still going for it – gonna Ninja-ize and detox!
I also learned I won’t be good at sustaining unless I find a good meal order service. I soooo dislike meal planning and grocery shopping and have found myself eating the same meals.  Goals for next 4 weeks – Get the final pounds off!! Find a good meal service. ENJOY working out with less weight to haul around! 

Congrats Dory!

I’m so excited to share Hailey’s transformation with you.  When she came to me, she was really looking more for nutrition information, not so much weight loss.  Hailey had some health challenges that she wanted to take control of.  What she left with was so much more.  In her words:

I have regularly exercised for years (5x/week), but have learned that exercise isn’t enough, my eating habits needed to change. Six months ago I had blood work done that resulted in being pre-diabetic, borderline kidney disease, borderline LDL to name a few concerns. This was a wake up call for me that I needed to learn more about what foods I should and should not eat. I was frustrated as I really wasn’t overweight, thought I ate rather healthy and exercised daily. I shared my concerns with Anneliese and she thought I’d be a good fit for her program. I started the spring detox challenge and was excited about the weight loss and knew I needed to continue on and learn more for ME.
#scalewins – 16 lbs, 12″ total
#nonscalewins –
I know where calories come from
I’m setting a healthy positive example for my family
I know what foods I should limit and what foods to add to diet
I’ve increased my weight training and stamina
I’ve increased my water intake
I concentrated more on meditation and breathing – It helps with relaxing and sleep
I’ve tried new foods and discovered I like them
My life is improved because I have developed a habit of healthier eating, I am stronger, more toned, visually look and feel better for a healthier me
I will be mindful of good food choices and get my calories in.
I will continue to exercise and challenge myself 5x/week
I need to move out of my comfort zone of eating the same foods/recipes and continue to search for new recipes/foods.
If I feel like I’m struggling or losing ground – I can reach out for help
I will schedule a body comp with Anneliese to determine my ideal body weight and BMR
I know I have the “tools” to start a new day if I get off track
I am so thankful and grateful to Anneliese and my tribe for your support, encouragement and wisdom – THANK YOU!

These are the times that I’m MOST proud of my amazing queens.  It’s when they literally learn about their bodies and how to change their lives to NOT be in pain anymore!  Check out Sherry’s transformation.  ESPECIALLY her non-scale wins.  Just think what it would be like to eat food and NOT have a gut ache!!

Scale wins: lost 13lbs, 10in overall.
Nonscale wins: my gut health was my biggest win. Before Anneliese Swingle I was gassy, bloated, belly aches and even nauseous ever day!! We found out I can’t have nuts and we rebuilt my gut health. I have energy to keep going all day no headaches from caffeine. Also another big one was learning this is not a diet it’s a lifestyle change!
Goals: going to continue to rebuild my cupboards with healthy ingredients.
Long term I want to reach my weight goal.
So thank you thank you to Annaliese Swingle and everyone here that help my journey!

So HAPPY for you SHERRY!!  Congrats!!!!

Inspirational Quote: If you life just got harder, it means that you just leveled up!  #quotes #quotesoftheday #inspirationalquotes #motivationalquotes


Does weight loss seem like an uphill battle?  Like everything you’ve tried just doesn’t work.  You have the perfect plan, it works for awhile, then you stall–get frustrated and then quit.  Or maybe you’ve tried every diet out there and nothing seems to work  so you give up.  How about, you work out like a fiend, eat right do all the “right things” and STILL can’t shake the weight?  You’ve given up carbs, you’ve given up sugar, you’ve starved yourself and NOTHING.  Do you feel like it’s a losing battle, so it’s easier to just quit fighting?  

If it’s EXHAUSTING being exhausted quit fighting and join the tribe!  The transformation tribe!  I’m looking for 4 amazing women who are ready to WIN the battle once and for all.  

If you’re ready,  I have 4 slots available in my Enlightened Transformation program!  Hit me up and let’s see if my program JUST might be the answer you’ve been looking for.  

It’s NOT a diet

It’s not a supplement program

It’s based on REAL food and what works for YOU!

Comment below: I want to apply!

Your body AND mind will thank you…

It’s a BOOT CAMP day at Fuel Fitness.  We’ll be doing HIGH 5’s today outside on the lawn.  Bring WATER, sunscreen, a hat, lip balm and your able body.  We’re gonna sweat out some toxins and have fun while doing it!  You coming?  12:10 – 12:50

Be Stronger Than Your Strongest Excuse

This girl….THIS one right here, I can’t say enough about.  I love when people FINALLY decide it’s the RIGHT time for them to change because they’ve tried everything else, they’ve watched other transformations, they are just sick and tired of being sick and tired of nothing working.  Her story says it all!  Congrats Tracy! I just couldn’t be happier for you saying YES to YOU!  MMMWAH!

Today marks the end of my Enlightened journey. Reflecting back to the beginning, I was in a state of frustration. I tried many different eating plans including WW, South Beach, low fat, low carb, macro counting, etc. While I experienced results the first couple of weeks, I quickly plateaued and none of the programs resulted in the lifestyle change I was searching for. I was diligent at working out as long as I had a plan, but my favorite free workout app suddenly removed their plans (3 to 6 week full exercise programs) and went with collections (still a great resource but it no longer provided me with a structured scheduled plan). I never was much for drinking plain water (so I was dehydrated), I was under eating, and I took a maintenance medication for GERD. I had been following Anneliese on social media and one of her Transformation Tuesdays encouraged me to reach out. Anneliese and I talked and decided I would be a good fit for her program. We set my goal, she recommended shooting for 10 pounds and I told her I wanted to target losing 10% of my weight.

Fast forward to today, I have transformed. Completely transformed. Not just my body, but my mind, my heart, my lifestyle. I eat REAL food and I love it! I eat more calories than I have on any other “diet”. I very rarely experience GERD and I no longer take the maintenance medications. I have received many compliments on my complexion and that I look “happy and healthy”.

In addition to these non-scale wins, I exceeded my 10% goal by nearly 3%. I’ve lost 19 pounds, 3 inches from my chest, 5.5 inches from my waist, 3 inches from my hips, 2 inches from my thighs, half an inch from my calves, and 1.5 inches from my arms.

I am extremely grateful for the knowledge I’ve gained from Anneliese. She never hesitated once to help me when I was struggling and she helped me break through challenges. I am also extremely thankful for the support from my family, friends, and the other program participants. It’s important to have support and encouragement to be successful.

I am sad that the Enlightenment journey has come to an end, but I am confident that I will sustain this lifestyle change. And, I will continue on in the Energized Workout group and Fit Force. Many thanks and love to you all!

Group CYCLE today in the Octane studio at Fuel Fitness 12:10 – 12:50 WHO’S COMING?

If you know ANYTHING about me, you know by now I love to SHARE my client’s  amazing transformations.  It’s really NOT just about losing weight.  It’s about changing your LIFE!  It’s all the stuff we really don’t think too much about until we get to experience it.  Check out Maria’s transformation!

#12week Transformation: Remember how your sweet mom or grandma told you that pretty is on the INSIDE? Well, that is the actual story of my 12 week transformation.

I came to this program because I was frustrated that I could not get below my weight set point. I have done intermittent fasting for many weeks, and tried a diet so low in carbohydrates I hadn’t even eaten fruit in months. Zero.zip.

I had also recently ended the longest friendship of my life, too painful to even talk about now because it had slowly gotten so toxic & negative.

Pretty soon, after joining, my non-scale wins started piling up: 1. Never day-tired 2. Never eating take-out 3. Clearer skin 4. Body confidence (fun in any relationship! – ha) 5. I finally made a couple of actual friends who encouraged me (hug you, Samantha 🌹). 6. My husband totally got on board to help and encourage 7. My tight pants started falling off. And
8. Something in my heart CHANGED.
Once I started feeding nothing but positive things into my life, my outlook changed. This is YOU, my tribe.

And for the numbers, they’re awesome too: 10 lbs lost
14 inches GONE

I could not be happier for Maria!  She CONQUERED and overcame  her weight plateau!  Congrats Maria!

I love Samantha’s story.  Her story resonates with SO many people including me!  I love that she is so willing to share and so honored that she believed in herself enough to invest in her health!  I’ve known Samantha for over 15 years.  We worked together years ago when I was still training at LFC (Life Fitness Center) here in Helena and I can honestly say her transformation is hands down better than when she worked with me in person!  Take a listen.  If this speaks to you please comment….share your thoughts.

Hey guys!  Meet Jana–she’s my next amazing transformation babe!  I’m so proud of her, but it’s not because of all her scale wins, her non-scale wins are MIND  BLOWING!!  Don’t take my word for it though…here are HER words:

#12weekTestimonial. Today marks the end of my 12 weeks in Enlightened Group. While I’m sad that it’s ending I’m also excited to see how well I can manage on my own. But before I go any further, let me tell you a little about myself 3 months ago.

I was unable to stand or walk for more than a minute or two without massive pain in my hips and lower back. Going to Costco was sheer torture. I’ve tried x-Ray’s, MRIs, chiropractors, orthopaedic doctors, cortisone shots, massage, acupuncture, pain meds…I even quit a very lucrative but stressful job that I had been at for 16 years at the recommendation of my doctors. I was that desperate. NOTHING was helping, and I’ve spent a fortune over the past 10 years trying to find a fix. Add to that the daily achiness of a fibromyalgia diagnosis and, as you can imagine, I was absolutely exhausted and felt extremely defeated. I would often come home from work, eat something unhealthy like tortilla chips with hummus & half a bottle of red wine and a couple muscle relaxers to help me sleep (self medicating) and go to bed. It was a very miserable existence and I felt like my life was passing me by. I was so depressed. I was also gaining weight at a rapid pace due to my unhealthy, inactive lifestyle. I am 5’3 and had never weighed more than 107 lbs. in my entire life. Suddenly I was craving foods I’d never been interested in before: pasta, wine, bread, pastries, cereal, LOTS of carbs & starches. My metabolism came to a screeching halt. In 9 years I gained about 60 lbs.

I knew in my heart that if only I could exercise I would begin to feel SO much better. But everything I tried hurt, so I gave up. I injured my back the first day I went to the gym for my one-week trial because I had no one to guide me or teach me what I should or shouldn’t do. So there went another year while I recovered from yet another injury.

I have lost 12 lbs. over the past 3 months. It’s not a huge drop but my nonscale victories have absolutely CHANGED MY LIFE. Here is a list:

Getting completely off my heartburn & blood pressure medications!

My skin is so much less dry from the increase in my daily water intake! I really notice on days I don’t carry a water bottle with me how much better I feel when I hydrate.

I am able to exercise with NO pain in my hips & lower back! Anneliese provided corrective exercises and taught me how to use my foam roller in new ways which really dig into my pain and over time, very slowly, I have been able to start walking again. Running errands and doing household chores is no longer painful. LIFE ALTERING!!

I was once so confused by all the diets and exercises advertised on social media. I had no clue which of them were right for me or why. It was so intimidating! Anneliese had ideas throughout the entire 12 weeks about foods, exercises, supplements, etc. and every single thing she suggested was spot on! Every recommendation she made was based on my needs as an individual, this is NOT a one size fits all program!

My energy level is 100x better than it has been in years. I get up with my alarm and never feel groggy or lethargic. I sleep hard and wake up feeling rested. I no longer sleep away the weekend!

MY TRIBE!!! There just aren’t words to accurately express how much your encouragement, support, laughter, tears, friendship have meant to me!! I feel like I won the lottery and my heart is so full of love, respect and admiration for all of you. I’m forever grateful that our paths have crossed!

And to you, Anneliese Swingle, THANK YOU for giving me my life back. For believing in me and helping me to believe in myself again. For reminding me that I matter, and that it’s up to me to make the changes I want to see in myself. There is no quick fix, it takes hard work, consistency and determination, but I am capable of reaching my goals.

You guys!!!  CHECK THIS OUT!!  I mean SERIOUSLY!  Raylene has worked her TAIL off to get these results and NEVER felt hungry doing it.  She never felt deprived, or cheated.  Not only can you SEE her scale wins, but wait until you READ her non-scale wins.  INCREDIBLE!!  If she can do it, ANYONE can!!  Congrats girl for your hard work and sharing your transformation story.  These are her words:


Scale win: I have lost 38 pounds which is more than I had set out to do and a total of 18.25 inches. My BMI went from 33.7 to 26.81. I still have about 15 to 20 pounds left to lose and WILL lose it!!
Non-scale wins: I am sleeping much better at night and feel rested in the morning. No longer taking 2 hour naps several times a day. My energy is through the roof and have been able to get many things done in my house and have started on the yard work. I am no longer having to check blood sugars as these have normalized along with my blood pressure normalizing. I will be seeing my physician in a month and plan to discuss getting rid of some of my medications. I have already stopped a few medications and decreased dosages on others. My clothes basically are hanging off of me but do not plan to purchase anything new just yet. I am receiving numerous compliments from various people about how good I look. My relationships with people have turned to the positive and are happy moments spent with all. I have gained my self confidence back and no longer hide myself from the public. I go out in public with my head held high and love it. It feels so good to get out and about again. I feel absolutely amazing and feel like I have “my” life back. I can look at myself in the mirror and smile now because I love what I am seeing. I have gained many friendships in this tribe and obtained a ton of knowledge from each and everyone of you. I am forever grateful for all of you who have helped sculpt me into who I am today. I have meaning and purpose now. I will never turn back to a destructive lifestyle I was living and have many plans for my future now. I will never be able to thank all of you and Anneliese enough for giving me my life back. I am forever grateful. I will be going on into the future on my own but will be present in FIT FORCE. I now have a new outlook on life and a whole new lifestyle of health and fitness. I have learned to enjoy cooking again and learning so many new, healthy recipes. You all are amazing and wish you all continued success!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🥰🥰😘😘💋💋💋💋

Are you stuck? 

You’ve been working on that summer body dieting since January— you’ve been on a roll, the weight has been coming off until now and you’re plateaued BUT you haven’t met your goal yet.  You can’t get past it.  No matter what you do with your diet you are plateaued!  You just feel STUCK!


Maybe you’re stuck and you never really got started?  You’re paralyzed and have no idea where to begin so you do nothing….you start out great at breakfast and lunch and then just plummet at dinner because you’re starving, so you snack while you cook, then eat dinner and munch on popcorn or chocolate or anything to keep you emotionally fed, go to bed and do it all again the next day.  It’s a vicious cycle you can’t get out of.    You just feel STUCK!


You’ve been working out religiously, you eat clean, you do everything right and the scale just won’t budge.  Nothing is changing, so you cut back on calories and increase your workout time and intensity and no matter what you do nothing changes.  You just feel STUCK! 

Which one are you?

I have FIVE slots open in my 12 week Enlightenment Transformation program and YOU might be one of the lucky ones that FINALLY get’s UNSTUCK!!  You want in?  Click the link to apply:  


This is how you get unstuck: You reach. (Quote by Cheryl Strayed).

Group Cycle is FUN when it’s done in a GROUP!  You coming today?  Fuel Fitness 12:10 – 12:50  See you VERY soon!


The most instant result oriented form of therapy


I know MOST of you are tired of:

😞Searching for the next “best diet” that means you’ll have to RESTRICT YOURSELF from eating foods you LOVE

😞Doing an hour of cardio EVERY DAY to maintain where you are or keep progressing

😞Wanting to LIFT WEIGHTS but having NO IDEA how to start and not COMMITTING to doing it. Do you TRY and then end up back on the treadmill…every time?

😞NOT JUST wanting to “get smaller” but wanting to LOVE the skin you’re in for the way it FEELS, not the weight on the scale.

I get it. I’ve had ALL of these feelings, and I’ve discovered that the MOST EFFECTIVE scientific strategy to success is what most women AREN’T DOING.

Your fitness inspirations are not working HARDER (assuming you work hard but “can’t seem to see results”) they are working SMARTER.

If you want to:
