Is It Possible to Be Social AND Get Fit?

by | Jan 25, 2022

Every fat loss journey begins at a fork in the road.

Each path has a giant sign above it.

The left side reads “go this way to lose fat.”

The right side reads “go this way to continue living life.”

When you want to get leaner, you typically turn left.

At first, it seems totally fine.

But, each pit stop along the way requires you to make an additional sacrifice.

The first stop tells you to stop eating certain things.

No big deal, you think to yourself. I don’t need to eat those things.

The next stop tells you to stop drinking.

You think … ehh, I could probably stand to give up alcohol for a while.

The next stop requires you to avoid going out to eat.

It’s fine … I’ll make it work. Maybe I can still go out but I just won’t order anything to eat.

The next stop forces you to sacrifice your vacation plans.

The next stop tells you to cancel going out with your friends.

Then it’s no more date night. No more pizza with the fam. No more birthday cake.

Wait … what the fuck?

Is it possible to be social AND lose fat or get fit?

I wanted to lose fat to feel better and be more confident …

Not to be miserable and a prisoner to my diet.

Ahhh yes, but isn’t that the path you’ve always taken?

Have you ever truly figured out how to live your life WHILE simultaneously pursuing your fitness goals?

Do you feel confident going out to eat with your family or friends without obsessing over what to order, how to track it, or how it’s going to impact your progress?

Do you feel zero anxiety when going on vacation because you know you can simply enjoy yourself and not stress about the scale being up when you get home?

Do you feel like your nutrition is in harmony with the lifestyle you want to live?

If you said no to any or all of the above …

We’ve got some work to do.

Don’t worry, it’s worth it.

And it’s extremely common.

In fact, almost every single one of our clients (and I’ll include myself as well), struggled massively with this before joining our program.

The reality is this …

If you continue to ignore this piece of the puzzle … you’ll never be happy.

You’ll constantly go back and forth between misery (while making progress) and saying fuck it (while living life).

We need to bridge the gap.

And, it starts with learning how to achieve your goals while doing the things that are meaningful to you.

Our 1:1 coaching program teaches you how to be social WHILE pursuing your fitness goals.

There’s a reason why our coaching program has 3 pillars and one of those pillars is called Lifestyle Integration.

It’s the shit you’ve never been taught.

How can I live my life and be social while simultaneously pursuing my goals?

It’s actually pretty simple.

Here’s a client example.

Mel’s client Sarah said …

“For a long time, I struggled with body confidence while also not having the best relationship with food, especially after I became very strict with tracking.

With a very social calendar and ever-changing schedule, it became very hard to get out of the mindset of feeling guilty after going out for drinks with friends or going on vacation with my family.

I finally decided to join POP.

Melanie worked with me to have freedom on the weekends and days where I didn’t track. From this plan, I was able to lose 10 pounds while also changing my mindset around tracking. And, I actually felt less restrictive on a cut than I had in many years!

I went out with friends almost every weekend, went on vacation in Arizona, and did life the way I wanted to WITHOUT guilt!

Now I am finishing my reverse diet and eating more food than I ever have in my life. I have 1000x more energy, am lifting more and PR-ing often, and still have maintained my fat loss!

Truly, POP and Melanie have changed the way I view food and have allowed me to enjoy my life more while gaining confidence and looking the best I ever have!”

Soooo … yeah … that fork in the road …

It’s actually an illusion.

It’s a false belief that we have to choose freedom with no progress or misery with progress.

We can actually have freedom WITH progress.

In fact, we MUST have both for the results to last.

That’s what we deliver in our signature 1:1, 6 month coaching program that gives our clients an average of 20-30 lbs. of fat loss with the confidence and understanding of how to keep those results forever (and/or making even more progress on their own).

True freedom is what Sarah has experienced. It’s what our clients receive.

The physical results they desire while being able to live life on their terms and no longer feeling guilt, anxiety, or shame around food. They learn that it truly IS possible to be social AND achieve their health and fitness goals.

Will the next 6 months change your life too?

Well, that depends on you.

Are you going to keep playing the fork in the road game?

Or, are you going to do something different?

If you decide the latter …

Simply shoot me a private message on FB. 

We first need to have a quick chat to make sure you’re a good fit for the program.

If you are, then we can get started right away.
