GoGo Girl Fit 30 Day Custom Fitness Challenge


Disclaimer: I won a 30 day custom fitness package from GoGo Girl Fitness and opted of my own free will to blog about my journey and do this review on The Eclectic Element blog. Opinions expressed below are 100% mine and mine alone unless otherwise stated. Please do your own research before committing to buy a product or service because your opinions may vary.


Last year was the best year I've had. Ever. Period. End of story.

I was feeling the greatest, minus the ever constant health fluctuations, and I was getting out and doing new things, meeting new people, discovering passions I never realized I had; like exercise of any kind.

What kind of crazy person actually enjoys exercise you might ask?

Apparently I do!

Unfortunately even though these past Fall and Winter seasons have also been the greatest in the past 10 years I've been sick, they still don't have me feeling 100%. My health is fluctuating more than it had been in the Spring and Summer months and I just haven't found the time nor the energy when I'm feeling well enough to exercise.

Which leads me to the dreaded 'Before' pictures of this GoGo Girl Fit fitness journey. Brace yourself folks, I've gotten a little chubby these past few months...



Don't you like how I seem to grow taller in each picture?


A little about GoGo Girl Fit:

"GoGo Girl Fit wants to help women take their health and fitness seriously. By providing a fun and sexy workout at affordable prices, we are able to give women an easy way to get into great shape. GGF offers custom fitness and nutrition plans,  trendy dance fitness videos, choreography and dance team audition prep."


When I was exercising at least 2 to 3 times a week, I noticed a considerable difference in my body that put a smile on my face and a pep in my step. Now that I look at these before pictures, I also notice a considerable difference that works to do the complete opposite: leave a frown on my face!

Noticeably, my stomach and mid section have definitely gained some...excess is a good word for it.

I need to do something about this 'excess' we speak of and luckily in walks Erika of GoGo Girl Fitness in the form of a contest win. This particular contest prize gave me a full 30 day custom workout plan tailored to my needs from Erika herself!

So far Erika and I have worked back and forth to create a routine that isn't too rough on my body and I and that I can do on my good days while changing things up a little bit on my better days. She's very thorough and thoughtful when it comes to the 'custom' in her custom tailored plans.

This will definitely be an adventure and I can't wait to start it and bring you all along for the ride! You can expect one to two more posts along the way: a 15 day update on my progress and a final 30 day reveal and review of GoGo Girl Fitness.

I wish I could get to that point where I enjoy exercising, instead of viewing it as such a chore.

Marie Moody said...

I wish I could maybe this Spring because we finally found a medication that is helping me. Woo Hoo! It's called Cymbalta. hugs CM

Liza @ Views From the 'Ville said...

More exercise is one of my 2014 goals, not only to lose a few pounds, but also just because I feel better when I'm active. A customized plan would absolutely rock, and make me more likely to stick with it.
