Great motivator and info sessions

I loved being a part of a group while learning the foundations of muscle building. Tammy had a supportive and receptive approach that made me feel like I could create my own program from scratch. I also stayed motivated the whole way through because she kept us accountable. I got some great info and a new passion for strength training to take with me on my journeys now. Thank you Tammy!!

Muscle Up Program

This was a great program that helped me to understand and do the path to heavier lifting. We built our own program with exercises we enjoyed doing and used that to progress to heavier weights through out the 12 weeks. It was reassuring to know I had support and even when feeling new pain I was able to navigate through that with Tammy’s help. It’s definitely a confidence booster and helped me realize that I can lift heavier than I thought I could.
We also learnt about the importance of protein and how to get enough into our meals each day to reach our goals.
Towards the end I got sick and couldn’t do the final couple of weeks of workouts. I beat myself up but Tammy and the other ladies were positive and encouraged me through it. I found out I wasn’t the only one which made me feel better. My point is…there is no shaming in this group and we are all there to encourage each other to reach our goals!!

What a beautiful testimony, Cindy. You highlighted so many great points. I am over the moon happy that you achieved all of this within the program. And you are right, we certainly do have a very compassionate and encouraging community of women. Feeling blessed. Thank you.

Above and beyond

Tammy will underpromise and over deliver. Her level of attention and feedback is off the charts! Her program is very well informed and tailored 100% to how you as an athlete are feeling. I've had her help me not only with the physical side of training but also with the mental/ emotional part of it.

I have a HUGE smile on my face right now. Thank you for such an incredible review. It means so much. Coaching you is like going on an adventure too. Wishing you the best race ever at Trans Madeira.

This program helps me keep my goals in mind each day. The regular meetings provide a place to share wins and to hear how everyone is doing. It helps provide the encouragement to make healthy living lifestyle changes that I need to make as I approach my mid life stage. It has helped my recognize that I need to take charge of my decisions and it is a lifelong journey.

Thank you so very much for this kind review. I appreciate you and enjoy so much our conversations in the weekly meetings. You're awesome!

Tammy is fantastic, she is knowledgeable and understands the struggle!

Thank you so much, Trish. Love how real you are. We have a great thing going and I'm so happy you are part of the community and crushing the workouts too.

Mixing it up

I was looking for a way to mix up my exercise routine and gain a bit more knowledge about nutrition and Tammy was a great way to achieve this! New strength routines, new running plans, new fueling knowledge was just what I needed. Tammy's experience and knowledge as a multi-sport athlete is great for overall fitness and injury prevention!

Pam, it was a pleasure coaching you, and help you complete the New York Marathon too. Thank you so much for putting your trust in me, and for the kind review.

Great Program

After eight weeks in this program I have learnt so much about health, nutrition, and exercise. I know there is so much more in store! Tammy has so much knowledge to share each week in class and is so helpful with tips and tricks to put the knowledge into action. She is just an email away during the week if I have questions. This program keeps me on track and accountable to be the best version of myself and when I slip up-it’s a great place to figure out how to get back on track. The ladies are all great in the class and we all inspire each other in different ways. Would highly recommend this to any mature woman struggling in this stage of life 🙂

Cindy, you made my day. What an incredible review. Thank you for this.

Thank you so much for this, Paula. You are such an asset to our community. Sharing your experiences over the years and inspiring us with everything you are doing now in health and fitness.

Vim and Vigor

So far I’m enjoying the program. It’s nice to meet with like minded ladies in a safe place where we can share our struggles and successes.

Thank you so much, Cindy. It's wonderful to have you in the program. You're such a go-getter. You inspire our community.

Just what I need!

Tammy is super supportive and really helps to push me to get out of my comfort zone and to continue to learn. The other gals in the groups are also always very supportive. Even this 'old dog' is learning new tricks!

Thank you so much, Kara-Lyn. We sure do have a great group of ladies in the clinics, including you. Everyone is so positive and eager to learn. Love the smiles. Playing bikes should be fun. And now you can show your kids how you can do front and rear wheel lifts like a boss. Ha. Keep up the great work!

Enjoyed the bike classes

I took Tammy’s women’s mountain bike cornering and flow seminar, and can’t wait to take her hills and descents course. Tammy demonstrated then had us all do the skills, with great feedback, tricks and hints, then we took it to some easier single track trails and got to put our new skills into action. Great little confidence boost to take them from the field to the trail! Tammy’s enthusiasm and love of playing bikes is contagious!

Thank you so much, Leanne. You did awesome and I love your attentiveness to the details and all the questions you ask. It helps us all to dig a little deeper. And the confidence boost is a bonus. Can't wait to see you in the next one and again, thank you so much. You made my day.

Tammy’s Workouts are Great!

I’ve been doing Tammy’s workouts for 5 weeks. I really enjoy the variety of exercises and the modifications when necessary. She explains the exercises well, does great warm up and stretching after. I find the workouts fly by because she’s changing it up all the time. I’m very happy with the progress I’ve made in the short time. I also love the information she shares during the work outs about fitness and her personal experience. I always feel that what I’m doing is enough and I don’t have to push myself to the point of injury in order to be fit. Great job Tammy! Thank you for your encouragement and always commenting on every post I’ve made. It means a lot!

Wow, Cindy. How wonderful it was to wake up this morning and read this thoughtful review. You lifted me up. I work hard to create engaging and effective plans and want my participants to feel supported. It is great to see you are experiencing all of this. I enjoy your comments, always reflecting and showing us that you are truly “into it”. Keep up the great work. I love having you in our community. Thank you for these kinds words.

Well worth the money!

The basic class was amazing to give yourself more confidence on the single track trails! I saw improvements in my handling of my bike which make Mountain Biking even funnier! I recommend if you are looking to start or just improve the skills you have!

Thank you, Danni! I am so glad you enjoyed the lesson and felt improved after taking it. Can't wait to see you in the next one and out on the trails again. You are off to a fantastic start as a new MTB'er. Love your positive energy!

Foundational knowledge building

After many marathons I decided to try giving someone else the reins on a plan and see what I could learn, and I hired Tammy through word of mouth referral.

This training season I had far less overuse and over training injuries than any previous season, which was an awesome outcome.

I knew I had some huge gaps in strength training as I only did a little in the off season, Tammy did a great job explaining the strength training process and goals holistically and helping me see how to integrate it into a training season. I found helped a lot this season, but more importantly has helped me develop a foundation from which I can continue to improve. I value this knowledge greatly as I see it as a key component to continued running improvement, and to my body being able to keep running and trying new active things as I age.

My schedule and life has many complex layers due to work travel and other commitments, Tammy did a great job adapting the plan on the fly to fit my chaos as the season progressed.

Thanks for the coaching Tammy, it was a great learning opportunity and I look forward to taking some bike skills seminars this summer!

Thank you so much, Leanne. It's been a pleasure working with you. Wow, we sure did learn a lot from each other. I think I learned more about the female athlete from than any other. Our communication was exhilarating and intellectually stimulating. You definitely have some high-level self-reflection skills and know how to connect the dots. Impressive. If you ever need me again, you know where I am, and I look forward to having you in my MTB clinics this year. Thanks again for this experience and your wonderful review. You rock!

Awesome workouts!

I enjoy the workout schedule. I feel like every body part is covered throughout the week along with cardio. Doing the same workouts for upper and lower body each week is good because it helps me remember the exercises. I would enjoy live classes tho but for now this is good because I can do it at a time that works for me.
The cardio suggestions has pushed me to do more than I would normally do so that’s great!!

I like how you walk through every move and do them slow so I know my form is good.

I’m hoping to be able to keep up with the works out while on vacay. 😀

Here’s a pic in my home gym 🙂

Thanks for the great review, Cindy! You have been so dedicated to the program. Impressive commitment, and that's why you are getting results. Kudos! I love the pic at your home gym, and seeing you work out in your own environment! Woman, you are owning this.

Mountain bike lesson

I recently signed up for a one on one mountain bike lesson & had a great first lesson, very knowledgeable about trail riding & bikes.
I was super nervous but Tammy is a great instructor. Highly recommend anyone looking for more experience to sign up for lessons.
Looking forward to my next lesson ❤️

Thank you so much for your review, Nicole! I'm glad you had a great experience with your mountain biking lessons so far. Stoked to help you learn more and rip those trails. ‍♀️

Awesome mtn bike workshop

Tammy is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to all things biking!
I’m an experienced rider but have never taken a lesson and I felt it was worth every penny to go back to the basics of body positioning and braking. Highly recommend!

Thank you for this, Sarah! There's always something to new to learn, and relearn, right? I'm so happy to know you see it this way. The fundamentals I taught in this workshop we will never stop practicing and always work to make them sharper. Mountain biking is such a technical sport and I'm glad you grasped this. I'm stoked this season to continue helping riders of all levels learn more about mountain biking. Hope to see you in some other clinics and on the trails too. Happy riding!

Beginner Level MTB Skills Workshop for Women

It was a well spent 1.5 hours with you, Tammy Slauenwhite, and I would recommend Tammy to anyone thinking about getting into mountain biking (she's a great coach)! While I have been riding for a while, I had not ridden much in the past few years and needed to build some confidence again. This Beginner Level was good for confidence building and I did learn some new things as well. Small group is good and allows for some practice of new skills. Tammy also offers private lessons if you are wanting more one-on-one skill building.

Susan, thank you for your review! I'm so glad you enjoyed the workshop and found it helpful in rebuilding your confidence on the mountain bike. Our small group setting allows for plenty of individual practice with new skills, which is great for building confidence and skills retention. Plus we get to know each other on a more personal basis, and make some new riding buddies. Hope to see you in the next one. Happy riding!

Great session! Tammy makes you feel at ease and comfortable. She explains well and gives time for group to practice skills throughout session . Felt more comfortable on bike after this workshop ☺️ looking forward to adding on and growing stronger in skill and knowledge in up coming workshops.

Thanks for the great review, Lindsey! I'm glad you enjoyed the session and felt more comfortable on the bike afterward. That's the ultimate goal, right? I hope to see you at my other workshops soon! Happy riding!

Caroline Boudreault

I liked the MTB workshop but I have to be honest I was hoping for it to be a little more challenging. I learned stuff about the gears and really liked meeting new people. I have not use my bike much in the trails and I am quite rusty. I would love to go for an easy /intermediate ride with you sometime if that’s even possible and I would be willing to pay a certain amount as well of course but not a ride that involves joining the bike club. Hope to have more workshops . Have a great time out there.

Thanks for your review, Caroline. I'll be honest too - you probably should have read the workshop details as it was clearly advertised as a beginner level skills development workshop. If you wanted something more advanced, you should have asked about the intermediate+ level skills workshops. Anyway, I'm glad you learned some things and enjoyed meeting others. Happy riding.

Mountain bike basics

Love Tammy’s energy and knowledge. The small group size for the clinic allows lots of time for practice and feedback and questions. Not being a mountain biker, there were lots of things I wasn’t sure about but Tammy never made me feel silly for asking. Thank you for that. Loads of fun and what a great way to spend a Saturday morning.

Thank you, Alana! I am glad you enjoyed my clinic and found the small group size to be helpful. I agree that's it important. I'm also so happy to know that you have been able to learn some basics on mountain biking and have had loads of fun doing it! Hope to see you in the next one. Happy riding!

Heather Knickle

I just completed the 28 day challenge and I am starting the 30 day one . I am down 13 lbs but more importantly, I feel 100% better physically and mentally, no more headaches and aches and pains . I printed off all the materials ( I am one of those people , who need to hold that paper in my hands 😂) I look at it daily , plus logon if not daily, every second day . It’s how I hold myself accountable, I also like knowing there is a community out there I can access – I wanted you to know how much I appreciate your programs , Thank you for making them enjoyable and encouraging.

Thank you for your amazing review, Heather! I am so glad you're enjoying our community, the programs, and reaping all these wonderful benefits. You are a rock star! Happy to have you here.
