Any of you who have been reading my blog for a while know how much I love this fitness site. I was promoting it even before they had an affiliate program. I tell people about it in the park and the grocery store. Because as a mom, it has made exercise fit into my life instead of my life having to revolve around finding time for fitness.
Why is Fit2B Different?
What makes Fit2B unique is the focus on Tummy safe fitness. Most women who have had a child (and even some who haven’t, and some men as well) can suffer from diastasis recti. Basically it’s a separation of the abdominal muscles (the rectus abdominis) and the thinning of the linea alba connective tissue. This is why sometimes women continue to look pregnant for years after having babies, and men seem to have perpetual beer guts, even if they are fit and muscular in other areas.
Now when this happens, many traditional forms of exercise designed to whittle our middles (things like crunches and planks) can actually make diastsis recti worse! Beth Learn has been a fitness professional for years but didn’t learn about the value of Tummysafe fitness until she developed an abdominal separation herself and became educated as she went through abdominal rehabilitation. This inspired her to devote her fitness site to helping people rebuild their bodies, and to meet each member at whatever level he or she is at. There is no such thing as a one-size fit’s all approach for Fit2B.
Why is Fit2B Worth it to Me?
I’ve been a member for Fit2B for the last four years. Not by chance, but deliberately because of all the value it adds to my life.
It Makes Finding Time to Exercise Easier
For me, it’s all about the Roku channel. But I know some people prefer to use the site directly via their computers and others love the new Mobile app. I can get a workout up and running in seconds, before I have time to talk myself out of it or get interrupted by my kids. Sometimes I don’t have time to change into workout wear, or I have to run out the door and can’t get too sweaty. If it’s almost bedtime and I just want something gentle to unwind or I only have 15 minutes but I want something to get my heart pumping, Fit2B has all of that.
Fit2B Builds Us Up, Instead of Tear Us Down
No matter how you use it, it’s refreshing to find a site that not only promotes good fitness but healthy attitudes about our bodies. Nothing about what Beth Learn does is about destruction, not your body or your will. She’s all about loving the body you’re in, even if it’s not as healthy, as fit, as skinny or as strong as you’d like. She reminds her members often to honor the journey each of our bodies has been through, even if that journey included some things that have damaged and traumatized us. She constantly redirects us back toward healing our hurts and loving our bodies. This is something I need so much. I haven’t bounced back as well as I expected after this third baby, and it’s been very discouraging. Being part of Fit2B has helped me to refocus my energy on being healthy and strong rather than obsessing about a particular number on the scale or size of clothing.
The Users Provide a Loving and Supportive Online Community
The Fit2B Member Facebook forum is a wonderful place to get encouragement and support. Beth does her best to keep this as much of a drama free zone as possible. But it is still a safe space to share your discouragements and ask questions, even difficult and personal ones. (There is no such thing as TMI when it comes to women’s health issues on the forum). I’ve seen total strangers rally around each other to support and encourage after difficult births, miscarriages, surgeries, medical diagnosis and the desperation that comes with chronic pain. I think it is one of the wonderful unsung benefits of a Fit2B membership.
What is Premium Membership?
I want to highlight what I think is one of the best deals on Fit2B: The Premium Membership. This is a new product that has just started being offered. You get an annual membership to Fit2B and lock in the rate at $99 for future years (and your membership automatically renews so don’t have to remember to do it). That’s a big deal because while Beth and her business partners try to keep the prices low, the more they improve and add to the site (it’s already at over a 100 workouts) the more it costs to maintain. So yes, every couple of years, the price has bumped up a bit. So purchasing a Premium Membership allows you to keep renewing each year at a fixed rate (The budget friendly part of me loves this because I know how much to set aside each year to pay my membership). But it doesn’t stop there. The Premium Membership also includes access to the four most popular of the Fit2B e-courses. (Plus, once you are the member you can purchase future e-courses at a discount).
Fit2B has become a wonderful part of my life and a huge asset to my health. I hope you’ll give it a chance. There are so many more wonderful things than I could ever cover in one blog post.
