Hi there! Thanks for clicking on this post! I am so happy to share with you what Fit Justice is all about.
Here at Fit Justice, I (Amy) help others ditch fad diets/exercise plans and learn how to eat + live in a sustainable manner while still reaching their mental and physical goals.
The training services I offer are:
1 on 1 Training: 1 hour where over time we will play with various approaches to find what kind of training routine works best for you mentally and physically, a routine you LOVE!
2 on 1 Training: Same as 1 on1 training just with a friend!
Small Group Training: Same as above with a few friends : )
Online Training: A completely customized weekly program that caters to your goals and needs.
Classes: Mobility & Core twice a week and Metabolic Conditioning twice a week! More info here.
The nutrition services I offer are:
Macronutrient Plan: Customized proteins, carbs and fats to reach every day. This is meant to teach you about portion sizes and how much food you personally need to reach your goals AND how to fit ANY food into your plan to truly live a balanced lifestyle. This really emphasizes the idea of moderation and is a very non restrictive approach.
Meal Plan: This is a customized meal plan of meals you will eat everyday (foods you enjoy) with substitution options and encouragement/guidance on how to replace certain meals with other foods you wish to incorporate! Also, it is meant to teach you portions and how to plug foods you love into your daily routine!
General Nutrition Coaching: This is more of an in depth look into what you already eat with specific feedback on what to change/what to keep and WHY. This options requires frequent check ins with detailed food logs sent to me 2x a week. The program is meant to slowly teach you how to eat on your own without feeling limited by a specific plan.
*all offered online or in person
Lastly, about every 2 months, I offer the Fit for Life Challenge. This includes both training and nutrition with a specific objective to teach you how to eat and train to reach your goals, all while balancing the joys of life. Check it out here!
Overall, my goal is to help find the type of fitness and nutrition that’s best for YOU and teach you how to use those tools forever. Essentially, I use the art of applying basic principles of fitness and nutrition (BEFORE they we’re skewed by the fitness industry) to your life to help you thrive forever.
I don’t work with those who are looking for a quick fix or are chasing six pack abs. I work with individuals who want to develop a sustainable approach to a happy/healthy life.
I do what I do because I’ve been there. I’ve lessened the quality of my life because I chose an unreasonable goal. I didn’t understand that TRUE health and fitness means balance, moderation and engaging in activities in which I actually enjoy. I realized that fitness isn’t having the perfect body, it’s LOVING the body you are in and treating it well. It’s my incentive to SHOW how that is done via my lifestyle and help you do the same.
I strive to give others the knowledge, self confidence, and passion to LIVE that it took me so long to find.
My mission is vital because social outlets are constantly pushing out what I consider to be adverse ideas of health. Think about ads you see on TV and hear on the radio. ‘Lose 30lbs and finally be happy’. This indicates that quick weight loss= happiness (the idea of instant gratification that our society unfortunately thrives on). The process I’m SURE just teaches you how to be restrictive, which will ultimately get you nowhere or even worse off than you started. Or, look at ANY fitness magazine
It’s ALL about being smaller, more toned, having a tighter butt, chiseled abs etc. Nothing there shows you how to create a realistic and lasting plan for yourself that you actually enjoy. IT’S NOT ABOUT WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE. Being truly healthy and ‘fit’ is about how you feel, finding activity you love and fueling that activity properly and in a balanced manner. Don’t even get me started about fitness on Instagram. The best way I can put it is that it’s oversaturated with fitness competitors that glorify disordered eating habits in order to obtain a certain physique, completely disregarding actual health/what your body needs to be healthy long term. Some call it dedication, I call it failing to see the point. If these competitors used the dedication they had towards leading by example and teaching people the right way to achieve fitness, the fitness industry would be a way better place.
To wrap this up, here are some responses from my Fit for Life Challenge client’s initial questionnaires that made me incredibly happy to read:
6. What do you hope to get out of working with me?
I really hope to find a routine (exercise and eating) that I can maintain – not just for this 6 week challenge but for the years to come. Besides playing soccer, exercising for me has always been more of “i hope to look good.” Of course I would still love to look good in my wedding dress next July, but I hope to feel more confident in myself and to not make it just about the numbers on the scale.

7. What do you hope to get out of working with me?
I think working with you will help me to learn how to follow a nutrition and exercise routine that fits my body and lifestyle, instead of just thinking I know what’s healthy because I read it somewhere, saw it was what my friend was doing, etc. I’m hoping to learn how to make fitness more of a lifestyle so I can utilize the tools I learn long-term.

And here is part of an email received from an online nutrition & training client’s weekly check in:
Im trying to practice what I preach. Before, my patience fuse is so small and to be honest I would have essentially given up. But through work, and working with patients that have had a stroke or serious brain injury, their progress is so slow and can take years to a lifetime to maintain a life of maximal independence. So, though this process is slow, its rewarding! Thanks for your help and making me realize that this is attainable with balance and still being able to enjoy the little things in life. Enjoy your weekend!! Alisha G.
