A nutrition and mindset program for women who want to:

  • Tighten and tone, lose inches
  • Build and sustain healthy habits without toxic diet culture
  • Feel more confident and comfortable in their body
  • Heal their relationship with food
  • Recover from being a people pleaser and stick to boundaries better

Does this sound like you?

You aren’t new to the fitness world, but you also haven’t been showing up consistently for yourself over the last few months because life threw some curve balls. It really just threw you off and now, you have had a hard time getting back on track. Thinking back over the last 3-6 months you aren’t super proud of your workouts or your nutrition. Workouts have been sporadic (or non existent) and eating healthy feels hard. Clothes are starting to fit just a little too tight. Your energy is trash and your confidence is a 5 out of 10 or less on average. What you really want is motivation, momentum, and sustainable healthy habits so you can get off the hamster wheel that is your fitness journey. You are sick and tired of feeling sick and tired.

Some common mistakes you may be making (or have in the past) when trying to get back on track:

  • not identifying and working through the thought and behavior patterns that are really holding you back
  • winging it in workouts or nutrition
  • piecing together nutrition, workouts, and mindset coaching materials from  Pinterest, Instagram, your Auntie, your best friend with no real cohesiveness
  • eating less, over restricting (and becoming hangry and moody AF)
  • investing in detoxes and cleanses and buying supplements instead of habit based coaching or programs
  • relying on well-intentioned friends and family for accountability and guidance

8 Weeks to GROWTH will help you work through all these mistakes.
You will learn exactly what you need to do to build sustainable habits so that you can get back on track and STAY on track.

Your success is 100% possible and you are 100% worthy of giving it another shot.

You know what you need to be working out more and eating healthier, you just need the accountability to get back on track.  You know that once you get a solid hold on your health that you will not only feel better in your body, but you will also have a butt ton more energy and more confidence. You will go from merely being alive to actually living.

Once you start to feel healthier and operate at a higher frequency, you know that you will be able to show up better in your life and for the people around you.

Programs/diets that you hate doing, frustration from always restarting, low energy, and shitty confidence no longer have to be part of your life.

You deserve to:

  • Live your best life as your highest self in a body that you love
  • Set and stick to your personal boundaries
  • Actually enjoy your workouts and healthy eating 
  • Stop self sabotaging yourself, your success, and your happiness
  • Stay motivated and consistent no matter what life throws at you

8 Weeks to GROWTH is an 8-week nutrition and mindset program for working women who want to lose weight, feel more confident in their body and just overall feel healthier again.

This program is deeply rooted in learning how to eat healthy without a diet and getting your mind right so that you can enforce your personal boundaries and stop self-sabotaging your success so that you can maintain your results way past the end of the program. This is for women who feel stuck and who need help getting started or restarted.

“I love that you didn’t give up on me, but you also didn’t baby me”

Jerri L

“If you are not sure about joining 8 Weeks to GROWTH, ask yourself: how have you felt without it? Now think about how you will feel with a supportive team behind you 100% of the time. The end result in 8 Weeks is GROWTH! You will feel more motivated, more energetic and more alive than ever before!”

The GROWTH Pillars

Goal-Oriented Workouts
Not all workouts are created equal. We will teach you exactly which workouts you need for YOUR goals
Rest and Recovery
We will require you to rest for the sake of your physical and mental health. Not one of our programs encourages intense movement 7 days a week.
Optimal Consistency and Accountability
You won’t make it very far without showing up consistently or without having the right accountability measures in place. We got you for both.
Water and Hydration
Staying hydrated is so important for organ function, fat loss, brain function, skin health, and curbing cravings. And so much more. This is a major key in living a healthier life.
Think Different
You cannot expect to solve a problem with the same thought and behavior patterns that created the problem in the first place. Your issues with workouts and nutrition are almost always an issue with your thought and behavior patterns, so in order to be more consistent, you need to think different, which we will teach you when you join any of our programs.
Healthy Eating
We are going to teach you how to eat healthy without cutting out carbs, sugar, chocolate, pizza, or tacos. We teach you how to find a healthy balance of eating for health and eating for fun. We are also going to help you get rid of food guilt.

Phases of 8 Weeks to GROWTH

Phase 0: “Onboard and Detox”

When you secure your spot early, you will get access to a longer onboarding process and a guided, healthy detox the week before we officially start. *This a bonus phase that is highly recommended*

Phase 1: “Get Your Mind Right”

Learn how your subconscious works, how to rewire your thoughts and beliefs, how to actually stick to your boundaries, stop self-sabotaging AND how to release people pleasing behaviors.

Phase 2: “Nail Your Nutrition”

It’s time to release the stress, guilt, and shame you feel around food, sis. You will get the science side and the mindset side of nutrition in this phase. Learn how to eat without a diet and without restricting. Learn how to be more consistent, identify triggers, cope with emotional eating, and more.

Phase 3: “Keep the Momentum Going”

You know when you start a program and you’re all excited and motivated like “YAS LET’S DO THIS!!” then, next thing you know, you’ve lost the motivation and you have started to self-sabotage before it’s over?? We are going to help you get re-motivated so that you can finish the program strong (and just finish at all).

Phase 4: “Sustainable Success & Maintenance”

This phase is all about implementation. This includes the last few weeks of the program, but it also includes *after* 8 Weeks to GROWTH ends. You will not be “done” at the end of the 8 weeks, you will just be getting started, so we will make certain that you have the tools and the support to be successful long term, even after the program is “over”.

Dani S

“When I joined Gem Fitness I was at my wits end. I was mentally drained and my anxiety was the worst it’s ever been. After time with Gem Fitness I started seeing changes in my anxiety and in my body. For the first time since the pandemic, I felt like I could breathe again.”

“This is the most consistent I have been with a fitness program EVER”

Hannah B

We’re taking only 14 new clients in this cohort!!

This is for you if:

  • You have been struggling for a year or more
  • You are not currently working out or following a meal plan consistently 
  • You want to drop pant sizes, lose inches, and/or tighten and tone
  • You want to learn how to eat healthy without a diet and heal your relationship with food 
  • You struggle with setting and enforcing your boundaries (with others and yourself)
  • You are not super proud of how you have been showing up for yourself in the fitness department over the last 3-6 months.
  • Deep down you do not feel worthy of this success and you worry about what others will think of you for trying… or worse, failing.

“The coaches are amazing. They actually care, you won’t get lost in the muck like you do in so many other programs.”

What is the investment for this program?

There are different levels of investment based on the level of support you need. When you apply, if we decide you are a good fit, we will get on a call together to go over your investment options. Payment plans are available.

What is the daily commitment?

On a daily basis you are looking at committing 10-60 minutes (depends on the day and your personal plan). This is a program that requires work and dedication, but we also don’t want it to be soooo overwhelming.

Will I get a meal plan?

Yes, but not in the traditional sense. We will not be giving you a plan of eat this much chicken and this much broccoli. You are going to get something much better — the empowerment and education to learn how to make your own food choices. We will teach you exactly how to eat healthy and how to choose meals and snacks, you will even get a super fun cook book. Our goal is to teach you long term skills that you can carry on forever.

How often do I have to workout on this program?

This is totally based on you and your goals. Workout plans will range 2-6 days a week and 10-45 minutes in duration. We do not have any of our clients working out 7 days a week as we do require 1-2 days of recovery to keep your risk of injury lower and to create  a healthy balance.

Will I get access to the Gem Fit Squad workout classes?

Yes ma’am!! You get access to all 19 live classes a week, so there is 0 guesswork and 0 brainwork on your part in your workouts. All you have to do is schedule based on your workout plan and then just show up and follow the workout the instructor gives you that day (each class will be different to keep in interesting since it is live)

What foods am I not allowed to eat on this program?

No such list exists. We do not require you to cut out ANY food. We may have you eating less of the less nutritious food, but you will NOT restrict or be deprived on this plan. Oh yeah, and its all real food, too. No bullshit replacements that taste like cardboard.

Do I have to weigh myself?

Absolutely not. We have found that the scale means absolutely nothing, yet it causes so much anxiety and other issues with mental health. For that reason, we do not ask for weigh ins… ever. The scale is not serving you. It is only hurting your mental health and leading you down the path of self-sabotage when it doesn’t move the way you want it to.

Is tracking macros required?

Tracking macros is a really good option for eating healthy, but it is not required. If you find that tracking macros does not work for you, we will teach you another method of healthy eating that fits your lifestyle and works better with your mental health.  If you find that you prefer to track macros, we will give you a custom macro plan and make 1 adjustment (as needed) throughout the program.
