What is Bari-fit Nutrition and Fitness Coaching?

Bari-Fit is a nutrition and fitness coaching program designed for pre and post op bariatric clients.  The program is designed to guide clients through dramatic – yet sustainable – changes in their eating and exercise habits with the help from an expert bariatric coach, who is also a bariatric patient.  To date, we have tested it with hundreds of clients, who have transformed their bodies and health in amazing ways.

As bariatric patients and coaches, we seen dozens of diet and exercise fads come and go.  This is the reason we do not follow fads.  Instead, we have carved our own path, testing, and continuously updating our methods.

We specialize in taking complex nutritional problems and breaking them down into small, strategic daily practices – designed to fit into your busy lifestyle.

    Who is Bari-Fit Nutrition and Fitness Coaching for?
    Bari-Fit Nutrition and Fitness Coaching is for men and women who want to get in the best shape of their lives – for the rest of their lives.  It is for people with busy schedules who want personal accountability, a structured nutrition program to follow, and a coach to help keep them consistent and on track.  The main focus of the program is to strategically help you improve your eating and exercise habits –  all within context of real life.  We do not give you a crazy diet or exercise program to follow; instead we help our clients build habits they need for sustainable results.
    Will coaching work for me?
    If you follow our recommendations and stick with us then YES you will get results!  But you have to commit to making small strategic changes in your life.  It takes hard work, time and dedication.  We are confident we can help you and once you make the commitment to get in better shape we will be with you every step of the way.
    Who are you and what makes you a qualified coach?

    I am Tosha Stafford, founder of Bari-FIt.  I have devoted the last 6 years to making health and fitness something that is achievable and attainable for every bariatric client.  Here are Bari-Fit Nutrition and Fitness Coaching, we have a world-class coaching team who are all bariatric patients and certified coaches.

    When people want the best, they work with us.  Lots of people consider us the experts in bariatric nutrition coaching.  That’s a BIG responsibility, and we do not take it lightly.

    Do you give me a meal plan?
    Our packages do not include meal plans, but can be purchased separate.  This means you get to choose – with the help of your coach – which foods are best for you, when to eat those foods, and how much to eat of them.
    Why coaching? Can I pick up a diet book? Or read articles online for free?
    Most transformative change happens though a real relationship with another human being – usually a coach or mentor.  Sure, you can try another diet book or read a few more articles, especially if you love thinking about exercise and nutrition.  If you get great results with those tools, we applaud you.  Diet and fitness books rarely help us make dramatic, consistent changes in our lives.  They get you all fired up about a “new” way of doing things….which lasts a few days.  Then you are back to where you were before.

    But if your having trouble putting what you know into action, Bari-Fit Nutrition and Fitness Coaching might be for you.  When we want to improve ourselves, the only way to of it is to change one thing at a time.  

    Thats why coaching (being led and guided by someone a little further along in the weight loss surgery journey that you) and social support (being surrounded and encouraged by like-minded people) are so important.

    We deliver coaching, social support, and a process that encourages real change for sustainable results.
