30 Day Body By MYOKORE Challenge Update #2

Cristen-Front-Before-and-After-300x300

As the month of January winds down, so does the 30 Day Body By MYOKORE Challenge which began earlier this month. The main goal of the challenge was to have you start the new year off right. With MYOKORE’s suspension training and Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine calorie and portion controlled meals, anyone who wanted to participate in the challenge was sure to see results.

Earlier this month, we checked in on Heath, one of the participants. This time around, we find out how Cristen has been doing and to see what kind of success she’s had.

Going into the Body By MYOKORE Challenge I felt excited to have a program that would make me more toned and hopefully make me look a little better when I put on a bathing suit. I didn’t expect it to make such an impact on all aspects of my life.

At the end of the 30 days not only did I feel the strongest that I had ever felt but I also felt better in everything else I did. Getting out of bed each morning was easier, choosing to eat right was easier; I was much more focused at work and in a happier mood each day.

I looked forward to the workouts every day because I could see myself improving and overall just felt better. The 30 Day Challenge changed into my daily routine. It was something that I did not give up after 30 days. I have continued to follow the program and I am exited to see how much more of a positive impact it continues to have on my life.


All of Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine’s meals are nutritionally balanced by our in-house Registered Dietitian to make sure that all of the calories and portion sizes fit perfectly in both of our 1,200 or 1,800 calories per day meal plans.

30 Day Body By Myokore Challenge Update

myokore3The 30 Day Body By MYOKORE Challenge began earlier this month with main goal of having you start the new year off right. With MYOKORE’s suspension training and Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine calorie and portion controlled meals, anyone who wanted to participate in the challenge was sure to see results.

The challenge is more than half way over so let’s check in on some of the participants to see what kind of success they’ve had.

Heath, who is now 34, had not worked out consistently since he was 15 years old. “I do not do anything to promote a healthy lifestyle so this will be a complete 180 for me.” Find out what he thought 30 days later…

“At the end of the 30 Day Body By MYOKORE Challenge I definitely felt stronger and I had a much easier time sticking to the workouts. I got up each morning and not only worked out but felt obligated by my own drive. At night, I desired the workout because I wanted the physical results. 

The hardest part for me was the meals. I have a hard time not eating what I want. Starting in week 4 I started to really watch what I was eating. It has since carried over into my normal day to day life. I haven’t continued the workouts twice daily but I have definitely worked out at least 5 times a week.

The MYOKORE Trainer most definitely made it easier to work out. By the 2nd week I thoroughly enjoyed the workouts. 

I feel more set up for success to pursue a healthier lifestyle. I feel great and I feel stronger. I thoroughly enjoyed the MYOKORE Challenge and will most definitely continue to work out.

Ofelia de La Valette was slogging it out on a treadmill when she heard funky music in the distance.

She jumped off the treadmill and followed the music pulsating inside a cardio funk-dance class.

She watched the dancers in awe.

Sure, they were working up a sweat. But they were also swinging their hips, smiling and having way too much fun for exercise.

That was the moment, in the early ’90s, when de La Valette discovered a love for dance.

She was 34, had recently given birth to her second child and was struggling to shed 25 pounds.

She joined the next class.

Timid at first, and unsure whether she belonged in a dance class, she decided to go for it.

In no time, she was hooked. The class was fun, helped her get fit and made her happy.

Within a couple of years, she found a dance studio and enrolled in as many as 12 classes a week — modern dance, jazz, ballet and hip-hop.

She was a beginner but determined. One of her instructors pulled her aside one day and told her: “You missed your calling. Had you started training younger, you would have become a successful dancer.”

About dance, Ofelia de La Valette said: “It transformed me: It rejuvenated me.”

De La Valette didn’t miss her calling. It just came later in life.

In 2004, she closed her insurance business and opened Dance 101, an Atlanta dance studio for adults. She was 46, one month shy of turning 47.

De La Valette is one of 60 women featured in Marlo Thomas’ recent book, It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over! (Atria, 400 pages, $27), a collection of stories about women who reinvented themselves — in many cases, past age 40.

It includes the story of a music teacher from California who, at 56, decided to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming a painter (even though she had never picked up a paintbrush before); Natasha Coleman, a 35-year-old sales rep from Panama City, Fla., who lost more than 200 pounds after she was humiliated when she couldn’t fit into her first-class seat on an airline flight.

On a recent afternoon with de La Valette — pretty, poised and relaxed in her dance studio — it’s hard to imagine how many challenges she faced getting her dream up and running.

She is now 57.

She candidly talks about being gripped by fear the night before teaching her first dance class at the age of 44. It was a beginner’s jazz class — at Emory University.

But as soon as de La Valette turned on the CD player and started teaching the class, she felt confident.

“I discovered I was very qualified to teach that Emory class. It was because I learned to dance as an adult that I knew how to teach adults how to move in a way that adults could learn how.

I could break down the steps, like a pirouette, and I could teach them in a way that they could discover they can dance, too.”

One night after class in late 2003, five of her students cornered her in the parking lot: They urged her to open a dance studio for adults, and the group of five — including a lawyer, an IT guy and a marketing guru — offered to help.

Within months, she closed her insurance business and opened Dance 101.

“My family thought I was crazy, but I jumped in and worked 12 to 14 hours a day teaching 17 dance classes a week,” she said.

“I was thrown into the deep end, and it was sink or swim.”

Today, Dance 101 has two locations and more than 20,000 registered students and 40 instructors.
