It’s time to EAT CLEAN

It is that time of year when all the holiday parties are over, there are no more big-game parties to worry about…so now it is your time to do something to get back into a healthy lifestyle! So why not join me on February 15th and start the 24 day Advocare Challenge!

What is the 24 day Challenge?

Simply put: it’s a weight loss program…but not just any weight loss program. On the Advocare Challenge program, normal (as in really normal) people have been losing up to 9 inches and 12lbs – in just 24 days.

Sound unreal?

Well, check out a short video that will tell you more.


Come check out my site.

I am offering a free week to anyone new to Giant Strides through the month of February. All classes are offered at Windgate Ranch on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 5:45 AM or 9:00 AM. You can sign up on the Giant Strides Website.

See you soon!


Advocare 24 Day Challenge – Who’s With Us?

On February 15th, Danielle will begin the Advocare 24 Day Challenge to help get back into shape after having her baby.  Who out there wants to join her?  The Challenge is a great way to help clean up your eating habits, whether you overindulged during the holidays, at the Superbowl, or perhaps ate a little too much candy at Valentine’s Day. 
What exactly is the Advocare 24 Day Challenge? 
Simply put, it’s a comprehensive supplementation and nutrition program designed to give your body the jump start it needs to help you reach your goals. 
There’s something for everyone, whether you are looking for weight management, energy, overall body composition, or body wellness.  You will have access to a daily nutrition guide that will help you with water and food recommendations, along with healthy recipes that can be used in conjunction with the challenge food recommendations.
And yes, there is even an app for your phone to help keep you on track.
Let us know if you are interested and Danielle will help to get you set up with everything that you will need to get started on February 15th. 
For questions, or to email Danielle, please visit the Giant Strides Fitness website.

I will be going over swim drills to help with your stroke as well as providing a quality swim workout for you. The group swim will be $5.00, please just let me know if you are interested in participating.

If you can’t join us this weekend for a ride or swim we will be doing this again in two weeks. If you have any questions about any of the activities that Giant Strides Fitness provides please don’t hesitate to contact me by phone 480-710-7981 or email giantstridesfitness@gmail.com.


Are you ready to put on your new swim suite? If not, now is the time to sign up for boot camp classes with Giant Strides Fitness. Classes take place at Windgate Ranch on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday or Desert Willow Park on Tuesday and Thursday starting June 3rd. We will be offering two great summer specials again, pick which one suites your needs for the summer!

Remember Giant Strides is not your traditional boot camp that does full body every single time you come, even though your entire body gets a great workout we focus on specific body parts on specific days as well as incorporating plyometics and running into the routine. We typically do 3 different sets of exercises each day with varying sets and reps of each exercise.

Please check out www.giantstridesfitness.com or contact me if you have any questions. Also, please pass this e-mail along to anyone you think might be interested in my classes. I hope to see you out at a class real soon!
