Fab- A Course of Online Nutrition with Sherry Burns -
CanFit Certified - Healthy Eating & Weight Loss Coach & Certified Personal Trainer
Let's get this straight...struggling with your weight or lifestyle is NOT a character flaw!
The roadblocks we create for ourselves often mask stresses or insecurities that are just that, roadblocks to taking an honest look at why food has become more than the fuel it is meant to be.
If you have reached the point where you are ready for change, where you want to make real, lifelong changes both mentally and physically, then it is time to put NUTRITION FIRST and initiate a lifestyle reset. Fifty and Beyond is for everyone, but one of our greatest goals is to recognize a silent segment of the population...the Fab ladies - Fifty and Beyond!
Young, old, ladies, gents...time to reset and reboot:
trying to adjust to your new 'normal' of Premenopause, Perimenopause or Menopause
struggling with midlife spread
stuck in unhealthy habits without a vision of how to start
have hit a roadblock in your weight loss program
Sherry has been where you are! She took her inspiration, made it work and now wants to inspire others to feel their best.
Meet Sherry Burns and read her story!
My name is Sherry Burns and I wanted to share my story on how I became a Certified Healthy Eating and Weight Loss Coach (HWL)
Every story starts with an inspiration and mine began 6 years ago. I was on a beach in Jamaica when I heard someone call my husband’s name, it was Kari Bice (Kym’s husband). I had never met Kym or her husband before that trip. After chatting with Kym I found out she was the co-owner of Motivations in Huntsville.
I came home that weekend and joined the gym that Monday, that was almost 6 years ago. I was so out of shape, I smoked, I had lost my dad to cancer a few years before that and was struggling to try and quit smoking and start living a healthier life. I didn’t know where to begin. I had never worked out in a gym in my whole adult life. It was an eye opener for me.
I fell in love with being at the gym, working out, doing the classes and found myself there 6 days a week. I quit smoking and worked out harder… and I started gaining more weight. I thought “well I must be eating too much” so I cut back and was hardly eating at all, feeling hungry all the time, going without my favorite foods and depriving my body of the foods I loved and craved. I found myself being “good “for a few days and then falling off the wagon and eating whatever I wanted to feed my cravings.
I worked with some great people that worked at Motivations, I trained with Kym and I listened and learned along the way that I wasn’t eating enough to fuel my body to burn off fat. In my mind I thought “how is that possible “if I eat more, I will gain more weight. To educate myself I worked with a trainer who showed me what macros are and how to track my foods and I started seeing results! It became more and more interesting to me but it took me a couple of more years to finally get the courage to take the Healthy Eating and Weight Loss course through Canfit.
I found myself watching people at the gym day in and day out, struggling with their weight, pushing themselves to the limit. I see myself in every member, the frustration, the struggle and the fight to become healthier, fitter and stronger. I watch people, I listen and learn. I remember when I first started it was a struggle to lift 3 pounds; I felt weak, I felt embarrassed, there are women and men lifting 20-30lb weights! I felt intimidated, scared. Now I’m lifting 20-pound weights, now its me looking for heavier weights in class! What everyone needs to remember is we all start somewhere, every single person going to the gym did not start off lifting heavy weights, we have to grow our strength and the confidence grows with it. We have to learn how to lift properly to avoid injury, we all have to start some where and the most important part is to remember that we have started and that is amazing in itself!
I have lost 27 pounds and 24 inches since I started tracking. I have learned how to do free weights and machines. I listened, trained and learned proper technique. I have been given the opportunity by Kym and Lorraine at Motivations to do this Nutrition program. I’m beyond excited, and blessed to be able to pass on my knowledge to men and women of all ages that are struggling to get the results they want, to be happy and healthy with themselves.

Kym Bice, co-owner of Motivations, shares how this program worked for her….
Just like many of you, since turning 50 I have found weight loss and maintenance challenging. Despite daily workouts and generally healthy eating, my weight continued to fluctuate.
Owning Motivations has provided me with exposure to many programs and weight loss ideologies – this is the one that has worked for me. This program has given me the key elements of ease and accountability that have kept me on track to see these results.
I can’t say enough about Sherry and her guidance. Sherry has been supportive and helpful in such a way that it has kept me accountable. The program takes a bit to get tuned right in but once you do, with Sherry’s guidance, it becomes easy. Sherry really understands and has so much to offer aging women struggling with weight that has crept on slowly over years.
In society, we are a forgotten demographic but our fifties can be amazing, active and confident years-it may take a lifestyle reset-but you ARE worth it!
"Nothing worthwhile is a quick fix but if you are committed and determined to go the distance it will pay off.
Why not? You are worth it!" Helen Barker
Discovering the Fab, Fifty Nutrition, Lifestyle and Weight Loss Program at Motivations Fitness has been life changing.
Sherry Burns, who is the Motivations Fitness Fab Coach, has walked the walk. She is knowledgeable and supportive on a weekly basis.
Since joining the program 4 1/2 months ago, I have lost lbs, many inches and have a new lease on life. Walking upstairs and everyday activities are just easier.
Lorraine and Kym at Motivations Fitness have been extremely supportive and encouraging. Exercising 3-4 times a week is now fun again! I feel so much better!
This program takes time to get used to as it is a lifestyle change. It works if you persevere and stick with it. You have many food choices. No one tells you what to eat!
Nothing worthwhile is a quick fix but if you are committed and determined to go the distance it will pay off.

Meet Susan Love....
It was with some hesitation that I entered the 50’s Fit n’ Fierce program. I truly did not think I qualified as I am not in my 50’s, and to look at me one would think I did not need to lose weight. But there is a hidden body underneath those clothes that no one sees and for me it was not so much losing the weight as it was losing the fat. So, I registered and am now completing my second session and will be registering for a third as I am not where I wish to be.
My initial reason to enroll was to raise my energy level so that I could participate in a Try-a-Tri in June. I am pleased to report that I completed it with no issues at all. I am slowly reaching my goal weight but most significant is the change in my body (flatter abs, defined muscles, less bloating and clothes fitting better or looser). It was difficult, at first, getting used to eating so much in a day but once I got into the routine it was easy and definitely manageable. My energy level has increased significantly.
Kudos are extended to Sherry Burns for all her support throughout the last twelve weeks. Her patience, understanding and knowledge have allowed me to be successful.
Kym and Lorraine have been my cheerleaders throughout this whole process and to the two of you, Thank You!
If you are thinking about this program, I wholeheartedly encourage you to enroll. Your commitment to the program will indicate your success. You will be surprised!
