I believe that the accountability and support aspects are absolutely key for you to attain your goals.
We have all created goals, set a plan, and have taken action…
but what are the missing ingredients to this plan?
What happens when you lose motivation?
What happens when a stressor or roadblock comes up?
Even as a personal trainer, I have my own coach.
I may have the knowledge but I believe as humans we are terrible at keeping ourselves accountable.
when you have a bad weekend and you were suppose to hop on the scale on Monday, do you?
No!. You spend all of Sunday and Monday morning rationalizing with yourself that you shouldn’t.
“Well it’ll be the same or worse, right? Why even look!?”
But we are now missing the most important factor in all of this!
The accountability… we used the scale as our accountability tool.
Because of this, do we have a better week moving forward?
More times than not, no!
Even when we aren’t perfect we can re evaluate the plan, get back to the basics, and more importantly, remember why we really wanted to make the change in the first place.
What is your WHY?
Because of this I created our 6 Week Transformation Challenge! (trust me I had a number of different names for it but the longer I thought of a cool name the less time I was spending on making this program life changing for you!)
I am looking for 12 people ready and willing to make a change!
This is a 6 week program that includes Unlimited Training through our Fit Body Boot Camp program as well as the coaching aspect from us and the community we will build as a group to ensure everyone gets results!
On Sunday, September 27th at 12pm we will be holding our Opening Ceremonies for this program. We will spend a couple hours getting acquainted, setting appropriate goals/plans, initial nutritional teaching, and getting our initial health and fitness goals set up!
Through this program you will have access to myself and the lovely Samantha Cooper so you have the support needed to work around life’s ever challenging turns :).
Here’s a small taste of what you get in this program:
A great group of people coming together to help each other. (Sometimes the best advice comes from someone else in the process)
Access to two successful fitness and weight loss experts
Appropriate goal setting
Individualized Plan for each person goals
Personalized Meal Planning
Unlimited Access to our Fit Body Boot Camp
And so much more…
All of this for just $197!
We are evening meeting up again midway for a special Mastermind meeting to ensure the last 3 weeks of your program to optimize your results!
There’s also a prize…
That is awarded to the winner of our challenge…
As a group we will decide on our Transformation Challenge winner!
Not every change you make will be solely reliant on the scale 🙂
For more details on this program please reply to this email or give us a call at 403.341.4041.
Looking forward to seeing you!
Well…another long 24 hours has come and gone and One to 1 Fitness is honoured to have been able to do our small part in helping make our community just a little bit better and a little more fit.
June 5th (through June 6th) saw us host our 3rd annual 24 hour Train-a-thon for charity, this year in support of the Canadian Tire Jumpstart program…a nationally based organization that helps children in financial need participate in sports. The program, represented by names such as Jonathan Toews of the Chicago Blackhawks, supports activities including hockey, swimming, soccer, baseball, karate, ballet and gymnastics and has assisted almost 1 million children since its inception.
So……how does this crazy day work? For a full 24 hours, all trainers on staff donate their time in half-hour time slots. Members and non-members are invited to make a minimum donation in order to “purchase” a training session with a trainer. Being one hundred percent charity based, all proceeds go directly to the cause…even food, coffee and other forms of sustenance that are scientifically engineered to fuel hard working bodies for 24 hours (insert shameless plug for Tim Horton’s donuts here!) are all donated by clients, families and friends. Local businesses even participate by donating items that get put up for auction.
The event (which has now seen One to 1 Fitness raise over $30,000 for charity over the last 3 years,) has consistently grown in new and exciting ways every year, with participants getting more and more creative on how they can help, how they can keep the day fun and light and how to keep their trainers awake all night, (including a 2A.M. Zumba Dance class!
The day brings a unique sense of community…families come and participate together, games are played, and the trainers are pushed to complete tasks of physical fitness. The air is light and fun. Our resident photographer captures sweaty smiles, high fives, hugs and celebrated friendships. But most of all, he captures a community. He captures hundreds of people coming together to support the greater cause. A family, working together to do good by others. He captures what is, One to 1 Fitness.
A very big thank you to all of our sponsors, partners and contributors:

April – 2015 Well it’s that time of year again!
It’s our annual charity Train-a-thon!!
Here at One to 1 Fitness and Red Deer FBBC we love to support getting kids active and loving life! So it’s our mission at this years’ TRAINATHON to do just that 🙂
This year we are supporting the Canadian Tire Jumpstart Program that gives the gift of sport to kids and parents that can’t afford to enroll their kids in organized sports.
We are opening our doors and schedules on FRIDAY JUNE 5TH @ 6AM TOSATURDAY JUNE 6TH @ 6AM for all of you to book in! You can pledge to workout, talk nutrition, get help with injuries, hang out, eat, chat, play cards and anything that you and your trainer would like to do with your pledged time!
We ask for a minimum of a $20 donation per half hour time slot to donate to THE CANADIAN TIRE JUMPSTART PROGRAM 🙂 Help us reach our goal of $15,000! Bring your friends and family because there will be plenty of things to do that day for you and the kids. We also have silent auction items and 50/50 tickets for an awesome gift basket from your local Red Deer businesses.
Keep in mind a couple things…If you have a normal training spot please confirm with your trainer you would like to donate to keep it 🙂 Also bootcamp schedule stays the same for Friday but the Saturday 9am – 11am bootcamps will be cancelled. We will definitely need to catch up on our sleep 😉
Call 403 341 4041 to book in or contact your favourite trainer to secure a spot in their schedule 🙂 We are accepting Cash or Cheque and if you would like to use a Credit Card you can visit this link- https://secure.ctjumpstart.ca/
Please help us make a difference in the lives of the kids in our community by making fitness a fun and beneficial part of their lives.
– I’ve designed the program to overcome the four fail factors mentioned above.
– It’s a six week body transformation program specifically designed to burn fat and tone muscles while you workout with me and then to give you the coveted “after burn” effect so you can burn more fat once you leave here.
“After burn” is the state of heightened metabolism that takes place after a really good workout when certain variables take place during the workout session. In fact it’s scientifically proven that you can go into after burn and torch more calories for as much as 18 hours after a workout.
– Each workout session is designed to put your body into “after burn” to help get the most fat loss during the six week program.
– Here is the best part… THIS IS A CHALLENGE! The participant with the most points at the end of the program will win over $700 in prizes including an iPad Mini and a makeover worth over $300. There are 4 ways of getting points including losing weight and % body fat. The prize will give you even extra incentive to work hard to start 2014 with a brand new iPad, a makeover and a new YOU!
– The New Year weight loss Revolution starts on Monday, January, 6th.
– The best, best part… I want to make sure this program is within reach of anyone who wants to lose weight, burn fat, tone up, get support and reach your ideal weight.
So I’ve priced it very affordable, only $154. AND you are welcome to split the payments into two $77 payments, 30 days apart if you’d like.
Now, typically my training programs range from $197 – $450 for four weeks. But like I said, I’ve priced this program at two payments of $77. That’s a really good deal!
Just give us a call at 403-341-4041 if you’d like to see if a spot is still available or submit your request through our contact form. Happy New Year!

Would you recommend One-to-1 Fitness to others?
“ABSOLUTELY! I know that I have received the most up to date training principles from all the trainers (due to all of them being trained using the same guidelines.) Knowing that you will never have to compete or wait for equipment is a huge plus!” -Shaun Richer
“Since becoming a member of One to 1 Fitness I have lost over 25 pounds. I have gained mounds of self-confidence and I notice that I tend to have a tonne more energy!” –Adam Risling
“Yes, since I started at One to 1, which was about 2 years ago, I can’t find a reason to quit. The trainers are awesome and the gym is set up nicely, which makes it very comfortable and relaxing. It’s nice to feel healthy again, everyone should feel this way. “ -Trevor Ransom
“I have lost 28 pounds and 3 inches off my waist. I have also gained strength, mobility and flexibility across my whole body! My seventeen year old son is now a member and attends three times a week. He has only attended for a month, but he is beginning to see similar results to mine. He has also been persuaded to make positive changes in his life; his trainer seems to be a better influence over my son than I have been, regarding his health.” –Craig Dore
Now that school has ended and we’re in the midst of summer here’s a chance for us to help a bunch of kids have fun with exercise, stay active, learn about teamwork, co-operation, problem solving, agility and more.
Kids Kamp Boot Camp is all set to start next week. (July 21st)
We thought we’d run it Monday, Wednesday and Fridays and there are two available time slots this year. (8:30-9:30 AM and 10:45-11:45 AM)
This Kids Kamp will run from July 21st to August 29th.
The cost will be just $147+GST.
We’re looking for a minimum of 10 kids (5 per time slot, but there’s room for much more!) from the ages of 8-13 that might be interested in a program like this.
There’s no real concerns about experience, all of our boot camp programs are totally scalable, no matter whether its a young athlete or someone just beginning to exercise they will be safe, feel comfortable and undoubtedly have a lot of fun.
If you or someone you know is interested just simply use the contact form or give us a call at 403-341-4041 between the hours of 11AM and 7PM and we’ll answers any questions or help you secure a spot.
And it’s all FREE (though we hope you’ll make a small donation to support our fundraising project for Camp Quality.)
That’s right everyone is welcome and we hope you’ll come see us. On May 30,2014 One-to-1 Fitness is hosting our second Train-a-Thon in celebration of our 7 Year Anniversary and with all proceeds of the day going to Camp Quality, Sylvan Lake. Find out what happened last time and the full details of the day below.
June 2012 – Train-a-thon raises nearly $10,000 in 24 hours for Camp Quality!
What a massive success! Nearly 400 workouts completed in 24 hours and just pennies short of $10,000 raised for Camp Quality! To learn more about this great project visit: http://www.campquality.com
One-to-1 Fitness was so excited about the success of the first ever Train-a-Thon in support of Camp Quality at Sylvan, Lake.
Camp Quality is a non-profit, volunteer organization that, in addition to a signature week-long camping experience, provides year-round support for children with cancer (receiving treatment or in remission) and their families.
The program provides children with the opportunity to try both new and familiar activities make new friends and gain memories that will last forever!
As trainers, coaches, and Red Deerians we acknowledge our responsibility to try to give back to our great community and contribute to the many wonderful charitable programs it offers.
In the spirit of One-to-1 we believe whenever possible doing so should involve our unique skills, be fun, and enhance our relationships with our clients, supporters and each other.
So what started as a semi-serious comment from one of our team members (let’s just call him Josh 1.0) became this crazy idea, and what a wild ride it was!
We’re proud, excited and a little nervous to announce our second ever Train-a-Thon to occur Friday, May 30, 2014 from 6:00AM to Saturday, May 31, 2014 at 6:00 AM.
There’s no obligation to make a donation, please come and be part of the spirit but the suggested donations are a minimum of $20 per half hour or $30 per hour. Each trainer will be diligently working to fill their entire schedule to earn the title of “24hour Red Eye Supertrainer.”
Who can participate?
Anyone! You don’t need to be a client of One-to-1 Fitness to participate. We’re happy to offer anyone access to our services during the train-a-thon both to help them and provide support for this great cause.
We can provide:
- One-on-one, semi-private or group personal training sessions.
- Boot camps at our regular times or custom and private boot camps for teams, groups, and organization.
- Customized meal plans and nutritional coaching sessions.
- Private seminars and workshops.
- Card games, sumo wrestling and more!
- We’re personal trainers we can do pretty much anything!
How serious will the workouts be? (Especially at 3:00 AM…)
The goal of the Train-a-Thon is to utilize our unique skills to help others, so our training sessions will be as serious as you want them to be (or maybe not so serious at 3:00 AM.) Watch for special games, prizes and activities, a number of our crew may be sporting…unorthodox…uniforms, coffee is likely to be a given and fun is a must.
Support this great cause, have fun, learn about nutrition, fitness, weight loss, and why anyone who works at One-to-1 is just a little unusual.
For more information or to book your timeslots just give us a call at 403-341-4041 or email through our contact form, watch for more and update details on our website and Facebook. All you’ll need is loose clothes, a pair of shoes, to sign a waiver, and just be prepared to learn and have fun!
We’re also looking for corporate sponsors (and it won’t affect you’re marketing or charitable contributions budget.)
We’re not asking for your money…just your people.
We know that to reach our goal of $10,000 and 500 hundred workouts in 24 hours we’re going to need a lot of people.
We’re looking for businesses that are willing to rally their troops for a fun, unique and rewarding experience.
The only obligation we want from you in exchange for name mentions and branding in our media campaign is to promote this event specifically to your employees and encourage them to book into our training spots.
If you are willing to promote the event publicly to your customers we will be even more grateful as it will greatly help us ensure we reach our targets. We understand though the constant bombardment for participation that forces us all to make decisions about what we can support and what we can’t, therefore this is not a hard expectation.
If you would be so willing we would also graciously accept 2 gifts in kind, these gifts will be used for acknowledgement to volunteers for their support and for prizes for our die-hard participants to also acknowledge their support. Our preferred volunteer gifts would be an enhancement to their donations but that is only a suggestion. Again as we fully understand the cost implications of contributing to so many things these contributions are not a hard demand.
In summary all we ask in exchange for direct media exposure is that you rally those within your circle of influence to help us reach an audience big enough to raise $10,000 or more by way of 500 or more workouts in 24 hours for a great cause.
All corporate sponsors will also receive an individual feature in our electronic newsletter that reaches more than 4000 local individuals as well as publicity on our website, Facebook page and twitter channel that reaches thousands more per month.
Thank you so much for your support, please call Samantha at (403) 341-4041 or email us through our contact form if you’d like to support our Train-a-Thon for charity.
FEB 28, 2014 UPDATE:
How to register for Intro to Training:
This a FREE program for our clients and our community and one of our tools to help reach our goal to inspire 10,000 local people to reach a fitness or weight loss goal by 2015.
You’re welcome to attend as often as you like, presently it will run from 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM until April 19, 2015. This is a FREE class for everyBODY!
The purpose is to teach you the what and more importantly the why of safe exercise principles, and why many of the exercises you see in gyms around the city are potentially doing more harm than good.
You’ll gain an understanding of what to expect if you decided to participate in boot camp or personal training and most importantly you’ll leave with a better understanding of your own body.
Please bring a friend and join us on an upcoming Saturday!
1) Visit: www.PersonalTrainingRedDeer.com
2) Choose “Client Login” in the upper right.
3) Choose “Member” from the 3 options.
4) If you are a current client enter your login information. If you are a guest press the “Join Our Mailing List Button”

If you have problems don’t sweat it, give us a call at 403-341-4041, or please just come there’s lot’s of room and we just want to make it easy for you.
Once you arrive you’ll be asked to complete a waiver, after Intro to Training we have Fit Body Boot Camp and until April 19, 2015 it’s also FREE to attend if you’d like to try it out!
At One-to-1 Fitness and Fit Body Boot Camp we care about one thing helping people create change in their lives, how they look and feel (hey wasn’t there a movie about that?)
Hope to see you Saturday!
March 1st Saturday boot camps officially launch! (But we’ll be here this weekend on a test run and you’re all invited, all totally free!)
We’re here for you every Saturday morning for Fit Body Boot Camp at 8:00 AM and 8:30 AM.
At 9 :00 AM every Saturday we have something new for you.
We’ve developed a FREE (though donations to the Food Bank are encouraged and accepted) educational program we’re calling “Intro to Training.”
If you’re new to (have never tried, totally curious, or would just like to learn) personal training or boot camp services Intro to Training will teach you core fundamentals of both programs. Basic exercises and their execution as well as the “why” of many key exercises. (This is a workshop not a workout but dress for active participation.)
We’ll be teaching you about the physiology and bio-mechanics. You’ll gain the understanding of why some movements are so important for eliminating pain and shaping the body the way you want.
Intro to Training is also another component of our commitment to our public mission to “help 10,000 local people get inspired to reach a fitness or weight loss goal by 2015.”
This service is open to everyBODY, whether you are a client or not you are welcome, in fact we encourage you to bring friends and family, all you need to do is drop-in and sign a waiver and you’re ready to go, no registration is necessary.
Right after Intro to Training there will be one more Fit Body Boot Camp, a chance for you to immediately apply what you’ve learned. During this trial period this camp is also free to everyone, clients and our community alike (though again we’ll gladly take your donations for the food bank!)
Registration will be available online for March1st soon (but if you’d like to come this weekend just drop on by!)
NOTE: We won’t have admin staff on the weekend so please remove all outdoor foot wear and make your way back to the boot camp room. As you enter the weight room you’ll see the archway leading into the boot camp room at the back wall.
Look forward to seeing the weekend warriors!
