Fit Republic founder and CEO Lizzy Goodman is a believer in a strict diet for body image.
But it doesn’t mean the fitness company is going to be all-out in the gym for everyone.
The fitness industry has been a big part of her life, and it’s one of the reasons she is now open about her fitness regimen, which she calls a “slacker lifestyle.”
It includes “slipping around a bit,” she said.
“And I don’t really do that for very long.”
But Goodman is far from a slacker.
Her fitness routine includes exercise and a healthy diet.
And the founder of Fit Republic, she is a strong believer in her fitness training and lifestyle, and she’s even featured on her own fitness channel.
But when Goodman started her workout routine, she didn’t realize how much she’d be spending on it.
That’s when she realized she was spending far more than she had originally thought.
The average American spends about $2,000 on a workout, according to a 2015 study.
But Goodman said she’d spent $60,000, including all her expenses, on a total of six workouts, and the average cost of one session is $3,300.
While Goodman said the average workout cost of her routine was $4,000 a month, she also spent $200,000 during her first year on the program, which started in 2011.
She estimates that she has spent $500,000 of her own money on her fitness program since.
“It was hard to put it into words,” Goodman said.
While she’s happy with the progress she’s made, Goodman says she still spends too much time in the office.
“I’m not doing a lot of things that I love,” she added.
“But I do it for a reason.”
What are the biggest challenges in maintaining a healthy fitness routine?
A lot of people are intimidated by a fitness routine.
But the main issue Goodman sees is the way that people get so attached to their physical fitness and the time spent on it, she said, and then they never learn to stop.
While the majority of people want to go for a big workout, Goodman said, they can’t because of the way people perceive what it’s like to be “fit.”
“People who don’t know the first thing about it or don’t want to understand it or are afraid to try it are often discouraged from trying,” she explained.
For Goodman, the biggest challenge is being able to stay motivated.
She says she can’t be a “slim, lean, athletic person.”
“It’s not a good look,” Goodman added.
And if you’re just trying to lose weight, Goodman is quick to point out that the only way to lose body fat is to diet and exercise.
“When you diet, you’re going to lose your muscles and lose the lean mass,” Goodman explained.
“If you’re exercising, you’ll gain that fat and you’re gonna lose your muscle mass.
It’s a two-way street.”
She believes it’s important to understand how to stay fit, but also to understand the process of losing body fat.
“You need to realize that this is a long process.
It takes time,” she emphasized.
“You need time to lose muscle mass, to lose fat mass, and to continue to lose lean mass.”
Goodman’s fitness program includes many workouts and exercises.
It includes a low-impact cardio workout, a full body workout, and a bodybuilding workout.
Goodman said it’s easy to do all of these exercises and workouts in a day.
She’s also included a video workout for people who don: “Do a full cardio workout every other day,” for example.
And Goodman is also making a series of video workouts, which are more in-depth than a single workout.
But her videos are all about getting fit and building a healthy body.
She recently released a new video, “The Complete Workout Series: How to Lose Weight,” in which she teaches people how to “re-train their body.”
She encourages them to “learn the science behind weight loss,” and then she shows the people how they can do it on their own.
“The best way to get started is to do a workout,” Goodman told HuffPost Live.
“We’ve created a system, but I encourage people to learn it and do it yourself.”
