To understand what Live Lean means to me, I’d like to share a little story about myself. When I first discovered Brad and Jess, I had no idea what “living lean” meant. I was in a very dark place in my life. I was in a toxic, borderline mentally abusive relationship for almost 5 years, and really did not see any way out. When I say that they saved my life, I mean that in every way.

Not only had I went from 120 to 160 pounds in college but I had become a very cynical and destructive person. In that time, I was also in a car accident that made me put on 20 pounds in the 6 months I had to spend in a wheelchair. When I got out of my wheelchair, I did NOTHING but cardio mixed with extremely low calorie intake which caused my weight to drop down to 130, only to go back up to 170 shortly after. To say I was my own worst enemy is an understatement. I made poor eating and drinking choices and I also let the negative energy of my ex affect me as a person. I believed that I didn’t deserve to be happy. I allowed him to disrespect me and therefore, did not respect myself enough to care about my own health and body. And worst of all, at this point, I had flown across the country to be with him in another state without anything there for me.

At the time, I had very little resources so I turned to YouTube and started watching Brad and Jess. When I first came across their videos, I started off casually viewing them here and there. It almost seemed like what they were doing was just a fantasy that was unachievable. “You can eat like a regular person and be skinny, yeah right”.. I thought. I didn’t know that skinny did not always equal healthy and that eating less and less food was NOT the answer. The whole mindset completely rocked my world. The more videos I watched, the more I became convinced that they had something figured out. Their approach to fitness is unlike anything I had ever seen. Instead of criticizing, judging, and dwelling on the bad, their approach came from a place of kindness and inspiration. Instead of preaching to others and only showing off their bodies, they educated their viewers and explained why you do things a certain way. They had hundreds of videos, tutorials, programs, and so many resources you can use to get any results you want. When I was watching them, I saw a couple who had so openly invited the world into their home and shared their habits like it wasn’t a big deal. To me, it was everything. To me, their openness and willingness to share with others helped me see how much of a disservice I was doing to myself. I could see how they take care of themselves and I realized that if they could do it, why couldn’t I?

And so, I bought my first Live Lean program, Live Lean Formula For Women and for a few months, I did a workout here and there but found trouble committing. I still allowed my unhealthy habits to take control and did not see myself as a deserving person.

I think I stumbled upon you guys about 4 years ago unhappy with my body and simply setting the goal of working to be able to do 1 pull-up by the end of the year (about 6 months). When people in my work gym ask what plan I’m doing I always point them your way. One of my favorite things about both of you was how helpful it was for me initially to see you guys get tired or struggling with your own workouts. Real life and that is your best self! ❤️💪🏼🏋️‍♀️
