Welcome to the

Back To Basics Fitness Blog

This blog is for women over 40 who feel Maxed-Out at Midlife. 

Women who want to look and feel younger, leaner and healthier WITHOUT complicated rules, restrictions or crazy workouts.

Women who want to take charge of their health so they can look forward to a future of independence, confidence and satisfaction in their bodies and lives. 

My goal is for you to treat YOURSELF with as much love and care as you treat others, stand straighter, more confident and proud in your clothes, feel stronger and more mobile, truly appreciate everything life has to offer without guilt, AND gain the skills to know exactly what to do to keep your results.
