Client Testimonials: "Healthy Habits That Last a Lifetime!"

 NTM Tip: Start every morning with a glass of lemon water before having your first meal.

The Ultimate Goal 

I am a big believer in creating healthy habits that last for years and this has been the foundation of all the No Tummy Mommy (NTM) programs. The programs have all been designed to help mothers build a lifestyle that doesn't feel like a diet. NTM programs were never about that quick-fix or rock-hard abs, but always about helping a mom, like myself, be her happiest and healthiest self. There will be days that we fall off the wagon, but the goal is to always get back on track. This post is dedicated to a handful of mamas who have worked with NTM and can share a little bit about their experience months or even years later. I am so proud of them for continuing their journey and not looking back. It brings me so much joy to be able to share their testimonials on my blog! 

NOTE: You don't have to read every single testimonial here, but if you do decide to read a couple of them you will see that there is ONE thing that is similar between all of them - it's the importance of developing a healthier lifestyle! When I read their words I am reminded of why I started No Tummy Mommy in the first place.

LindaBlair, mother of 2

This mama discovered NTM from social media and I'm so proud of her hard work. In her words, she says: "First off, let me start by saying I was a newbie to any workout plans. Trisha always answered all of my questions and not once made me feel ashamed of asking. The first workout program I purchased from no tummy mommy was the 30 day June kettlebell challenge and was amazed with my results.

From that plan I learned how to prep my meals and how to properly do workouts. I was so happy with my results that I also purchased the 4 week challenge. What I love most about the workout plan is the fact that I can do the workouts for the comfort of my own home." IG: @marfckntinez

Lindsay, mother of 2

Lindsay has been a big supporter of NTM and has tried all of the different programs offered since the beginning. I can't thank her enough for giving No Tummy Mommy challenges a try and when I asked her to share some words two years after the fact, she sent me this: "I began my first NTM challenge six months after the birth of my second daughter.  I was exhausted, unmotivated and still carrying 15 pounds of extra "baby weight."  Half way through my first challenge, I realized NTM's program was more of a lifestyle than a diet.  The meal plans were easy to follow and the monthly calendar of workouts made getting in 20 minutes of exercise a day attainable.  After the first challenge, I was back to my pre-baby weight and feeling healthier and more energetic than I had in a long time. I have continued to use NTM's challenges to keep on track and have found Trisha's support and guidance equally as great as the program itself!!!" IG: @lindsaycoene

Geraldine, mother of 1

This mama was initially nervous about starting her NTM program, but now she isn't looking back at her old ways. Even a year later, Geraldine is feeling brand new! She says, "After my lifestyle change experience with NTM, I learned to eat healthy, feel amazing, and the want to stay that way. To me those were all measures of success. 

Did the experience change my attitudes toward food, nutrition and fitness? Yes! 

Did the experience change me? Absolutely!" IG: @gee_mae

Erica, mother of 2

I met Erica when I attended a Cat and Nat mom event and was so thrilled when she had signed up to try the latest NTM kick-start program a couple of years later. She shares her experience in a few sentences: "I gained 50 lbs during my second pregnancy. Then I hibernated for a few months with my newborn and not surprisingly didn't lose the extra weight (and had no energy). Then I started the 4 week no-tummy mommy kickstart program. Following Trisha's nutrition guide and exercise plan was so easy. My 4 year old did some of the workouts with me and my energy levels quickly improved. My not so newborn is now 5 months old and I have only 7 lbs to go to get to my goal. I feel great, energized and healthy and I really attribute it to the kickstart program!" IG: @ericabaxterschott

 This committed mama continues to push herself even years after working with NTM.

Cheyenne, mother of 2

It has been over two years since I worked with Cheyenne and it is incredible to see her maintain her results and what's more, she continues to challenge herself and her goals. In her words, "After my kids, I decided to make a healthier lifestyle change by joining NTM. Working with Trisha helped me kickstart my journey to a happier and healthier me. Her encouragement and motivation pushed me through all those months, especially through all of my cravings :) Till this day, I continue to exercise 4-5 days a week and have healthier eating habits. I'm so glad I found Trisha as a coach! Thank you for believing in me and pushing me through it all. I couldn't have done it without you!" IG: @cheyrocha

Anne-Marie, mother of 2

I worked with Anne-Marie last year and was blown away by her 30-day progress. Today, she says: "The NTM program has been life changing for me. Shortly after having my second child I found myself lacking energy and always finding excuses to not workout (no time, etc). Trisha's workout and nutrition plan made it so easy for me! And it's now become a lifestyle. I not only lost the 60 pounds I gained during pregnancy but I've successfully kept it off and I am feeling stronger and healthier than ever. I've incorporated her workouts into my daily routine (burpees, burpees, burpees!!) and still follow her nutrition guidelines. I learned that I can still enjoy the foods I love through better portion control. I also learned that even if I only have 20 minutes to workout, if I make the best of it it will always be worth it. Time is no more an excuse for me! NTM is not just a diet or a quick fix, it's a philosophy I proudly stand by." IG: @amgabrini

Sunshine, mother of 2

This is one busy mama who has her hands full chasing the cutest and most stylish twin boys in Toronto! She decided to try the 4-week kick-start program despite a hectic schedule and here's what she had to say about her experience: "the NTM challenge provided the variety and change I needed to lead a lifestyle with healthier food choices and physical activity.  Trishaunderstood my goals and held me accountable to it.  However on the not so good days, Trisha's genuine support and encouragement had the most impact.  Thank you!"

Cheryl, mother of 1

I am so proud of this mama right here! She is still going strong and loving the journey. Cheryl says, "I signed up for the No Tummy Mommy 30 Day challenge hoping to improve the way I was feeling about myself.  It was 2 years since I had my daughter, was working out as often as I could but my eating patterns were erratic because of my schedule.  The clear food lists, and the simple recipes the "no tummy mommy" challenge provided were easy to follow.  Coupled with Trisha's motivating emails and check-ins, I was able to drop a total of 10 lbs and several inches in only 30 days!  I am proud to say that it has been about a year and a half since I did the challenge and I've managed to keep most of the weight off.

Trisha's program truly understands how little time mom's can have between "mommy life" and working full time.  But giving yourself a few minutes a day and filling yourself with the right food will get you results.  I can’t speak highly enough of this program." IG: @cheryl_napao

Margaret, mother of 2

Margaret is one determined woman!! I have seen Margaret continue to push herself and her progress is phenomenal. In her words she explains, "NTM and Trisha has helped me to be where I am today after having 2 babies. The workout circuits are quick and easy and the best part is that it's no more than 30 minutes. I feel so confident with my body after 2 kids. It's been a year and a half and till this day, i am still continuing the workouts and why? Because it works and the results are great." IG: @maggiefhou

 Margaret continues to push herself even months after she completed her program.

Audrey, mother of 2

I am so grateful for the mothers who learn about No Tummy Mommy from social media and decide to give the program a chance. There are millions of programs out there, so I feel lucky that someone like Audrey trusted me to help her. She says, "the greatest thing about NTM was that above all, I learned how feeding my body good food, the right portions, along with a lot of water, is life changing. It's been one year since I went on the NTM 30-day Kettlebell challenge. I lost approx 15 pounds. I've gained some back, and then I have lost it again, but overall I know what to do to get back on track. Working out is a challenge for me so I have always tried to fit it in while the kids are playing after work or once they're asleep. As I have learned from Trisha, working out can be easily done at home! Being healthy is a state of mind, and something that doesn't come very naturally to me (I absolutely love chocolate - I have an incredible sweet tooth!) so I really have to work very hard at it but I have realized it is worth it. I am so happy that I joined the program one year ago. I still keep screen shots on my phone of the workout schedule as well as the meal plan and portion sizes as a reference! One last thing I want to share about this is how you have inspired me to workout with my kids. My older boy is almost 5 and he likes to do what I'm doing when I workout. It's super cute and more so I am just happy that he is learning from me that working out is fun and being strong!"

Princess, mother of 4

I feel so honoured that Princess trusted me to help guide her in her ongoing health journey; she has known my husband for over 20 years! She says, "I started training with NTM in a bid to lose some of the stubborn fat around my middle and generally tone up. What I achieved with NTM was far more than this.  Using kettlebells and various bodyweight exercises, my overall strength and fitness improved in a short space of time.  Her tips on nutrition along with her daily workout routines are clear and easy to follow.  Trish provides a very comfortable, supportive, and inspirational community that encourages us to thrive to be our healthier self."
