Fit Club Tuesday - Slim in 6!

We have decided that we will be doing Slim in 6 at Fit Club every week instead of switching the workouts up.  This will give everyone a chance to get the moves down and get a better workout each week.  We will be moving on to the next level as soon as we master Start it up!


I believe that Slim in 6 is one of the most effective workouts and is low impact.  This means everyone can do it!  I hope that you will join us at Fit Club tonight if you are in the area!  7 PM at CJ Community Center ( 303 N. Main St).  We will also be sampling Shakeology and I'll be there to answer any and all questions.

There is no charge for the classes, I love having people come and workout with us. It's a lot of fun.  The only thing I ask is that if you are going to purchase ANY Beachbody product, you purchase through my or my team's websites.  This is our business, this is how we earn a living and we will be giving you the support you need to get through the program.  If you purchase your program through ebay or any other similar site, you are probably getting an illegal copy that is inferior quality and may not include all the books and materials you get with the original product.  I don't think it is too much to ask of you!

I look forward to each week's workout!  We really do have a good time!!

Be sure to visit the message boards for the challenge and to post how you are doing!  We are there for support and motivation!  Take advantage of it!!!!


This recipe is from Quinoa 365:  The Everyday Superfood by Patricia Green and Carolyn Hemming

Quinoa is one of the BEST foods you can use for many reasons:

1 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp salt
