  • Unveiling the Power of Zone 2 Training: Your Ultimate Fitness Secret!

    Unveiling the Power of Zone 2 Training: Your Ultimate Fitness Secret! If you’ve overheard me talking about my running journey at the gym, or if you’ve been brave enough to follow my running journey on social media (shameless plug for my Instagram and TikTok accounts @running_with_amy), then sure as heck you’ve heard me use the phrase “Zone 2.” You may even have noticed us coaches throwing around phrases about these ~mysterious~ zones when talking about MyZone, or you may even have been intrigued by the heart rate monitoring and changing box colors on the gym TV during workouts. So…what are these zones? What is “Zone 2” training? ....

  • Weight loss vs. Fat loss: What’s the difference and why you should care (Part 2)

    Many of you know me as Coach Megan. The person who is always reminding you that weight loss isn’t what’s most important, the person reminding you why we care so much about fat loss, the person reminding you to eat enough and to drink your water. What you might not know about me is that I returned to Done Done in March of 2023 after a few years of struggling with my weight, body image, exercise routine, and mental health. Yes, even though I had been a health coach myself for about a year at the time, I still struggled pretty significantly with my health. I’m human. I won’t give you a full health history but I will take you briefly back to 2022. In ....

  • Weight loss vs. Fat loss: What’s the difference and why you should care (Part 1)

    Day in and day out we talk to women with one thing on their mind and one thing only: They want to lose weight. They’ve tried everything. All the things that used to work for them are no longer working. In addition to not being happy with their bodies they are also feeling tired, stressed, burned out, etc. Sound familiar? Over and over again we hear different versions of the same story. These women don’t just want to look better, they want to feel better. And this is exactly where we step in. As your coach, it’s our job to help you navigate your fitness journey. We don’t have a cookie cutter or one size fits all approach. We know that even though ....

  • Why HIIT is SH*T for Women Over 40

    A LOT of women we’ve worked with in their forties and fifties have tried HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) as a way to lose weight and tone up. However, something we see time and time again is women doing intense cardio sessions every week to lose weight. They’re working really hard, but seeing no results in the mirror, and this can be REALLY frustrating. With the popularity of HIIT style workouts it's no surprise more than ever I am seeing women of a 40+ come in saying: "I've been doing these for years, but all of a sudden - it's not working." I just want to clarify that I am using the catchall term "HIIT" to refer to high-intensity, ....

  • Worried about that holiday weight gain? This is for you!

    Worried about that holiday weight gain? This is for you! Coach Megan So you ate like an asshole in December and now you’re freaking out because the scale is up, you feel bloated and sluggish, and you’re feeling like you totally blew it. You’re not alone. I get it! Like you, I hopped on the scale on January 1 and saw I was up about 6 pounds! Do you know how long it took me to LOSE 6 pounds? And my body had the audacity to put it all right back on in just 2 weeks. With the start of the new year and everyone and their mom looking for the magic “lose weight quick” solution, this is a recipe for a level 10 freak out moment. But in 2024, ....

  • What is Muscle Centric Medicine?

    I recently listened to a Ted Talk and a few subsequent interviews with Dr. Gabrielle Lyon. (You can check out the Ted Talk HERE ). She is a fellowship trained private doctor, spent many years researching protein, and recently wrote the book “Forever Strong: A New Science-Based Strategy for Aging Well”. The core concepts that she is teaching are worth sharing. I should mention, I don’t have any affiliation with her practice or her book. I’m just a girl that has been helping my personal training clients get strong and healthy for 25+ years. I have seen a lot of what works and what doesn’t long term and the thrust of what Dr. Lyon is saying makes a ....

  • Sleep, Stress, and Sugar After 40

    Sleep, Stress, and Sugar After 40 Getting the most of your fitness and personal training routines after the age of 40 takes a different approach. Let’s review the dirty little secret personal trainers and other fitness pros don’t want you to know: It is never your workout in the gym that makes you better. It is the recovery from the workout that makes you stronger, fitter, leaner, and overall healthier. When it comes to time in the gym, more is not more. This is something that a 20 year old fitness influencer often misses. When we are in our 20s & 30s our body recovers from anything lightning fast without any effort. Once we are over 40, we want to have a more ....

  • 10 Day Sugar Challenge

    10 Day Sugar Challenge: How it will work 1. Types of Sugars & Sweeteners: The goal during this challenge is to avoid products with added sugars natural sweeteners such as honey, maple syrup, or agave; and even all-natural calorie-free options like stevia. You choose if you would like to eliminate artificial options like aspartame, sucralose, or sorbitol. 2. Fruit: Enjoy whole fruit throughout the challenge. Avoid fruit juice, as it concentrates sugars and lacks the fiber found in whole fruit. Pureed whole fruit, like in a smoothie, is perfectly fine. During the challenge, aim for up to three servings of whole fruit daily. A serving is equivalent to one small to medium-sized ....
