Case Study: Amie Recovered Her Health, Lost 60+ Pounds and Transformed Her Life

You can use running and health to become or come back to that person you KNOW you know you are as well!
Coach Amie Before/After Losing Weight Holistically. 50+ Pounds GONE!

Hi, I’m Coach Amie… and this before/after pic is ME! 

Before I was a pro running and weight loss coach, I had fallen into a period of overworking myself, putting everyone else’s needs before my own, and despite consistently trying to diet, I couldn’t lose the weight. 

I also went through a series of medical misdiagnoses that led to tons of medications, with side effects so harmful I had to stop running due to cardiac consequences. 

The medications shut down my metabolism and caused my weight to spiral even more out of control. 

My health was crumbling. I was severely fatigued, became depressed, and was in the worst shape of my entire life. 

The “Before” picture wasn’t even at my heaviest as I would run away from the camera. Before running another ultramarathon, the “After” photo was taken at age 43.

I am not even sure how much I lost in total – probably around 65 lbs – I stopped weighing myself because it was depressing.

If you avoid mirrors… your closet is cluttered with clothes that no longer fit, but you can’t donate… If you outwardly smile but feel uncomfortable with how you look and feel… If you fear or experience judgment by others… if you run and know you could do and feel better… I get you 100%. 

But at one point, I had enough—the pain of going on as I was outweighed anything else. 

This is something you have to do for YOU.

I said NO MORE and got off all the meds. But then… I had to lose the weight just like anyone else – except starting with almost zero metabolism due to the medications. 

It took a long time to research and learn that I had to holistically reach my weight and running goalsusing a big picture view. 

This is why simply going on a one-size-fits-all diet fails because losing weight involves many factors. 

It inspired me to train as a professional coach and develop The Breakthrough Method to help others do it. 

IT FELT GREAT TO RELEASE THE REAL ME when I found out how to do it, and you can feel this way too!

If I can do it – after all that, I can guide you in this same Method to lose weight and be healthier too. 

I also got my self-confidence back, improved my mental and physical strength, got a healthier lifestyle, and improved my run training ability and race times.

When you lose weight, you gain so much LIFE!

I also noticed that I must have a gift for this because even before I was professionally trained and developed this Method, I helped two former roommates lose 60+ and 100-lbs each. 

One is now a distance runner, and the other became a fitness instructor. 

Remember: You become like those you choose to associate with! Are you ready? 

How The Breakthrough Method Works

The Breakthrough Method is different because it’s not just about a number on the scale or some crash diet that makes you feel bad. 

Instead, we look at your life holistically and where you are in your running journey so you can lose weight, be healthier and reach your goals. 

Therefore, you may also improve other problems that contribute to weight loss and running woes, such as stress/mental strain, nutrition issues, or sleep problems. 

So more than just weight loss – YOU get healthier, and your running improves as well. 

The Method is easy to understand, and for your transformation, you get all of this:

Step 1: Schedule your free consultation so you can feel motivated, get clarification on your goals, and discover how you can make progress.

During your initial 20-minute session, you can learn about your best options and get all of your questions answered so you can feel confident knowing precisely what to do.

Step 2. Once you start the program, you’ll get an extensive baseline evaluation so you can feel empowered to take action on your goals. 

This is all about YOU – examining the big picture of your life – right now. 

Through this, you’ll discover things like: What is YOUR personal “why” that can help drive your weight loss goal to success? What could stop you from reaching your goals? 

Your evaluation is available securely and privately online at your convenience. 

Step 3: You’ll then get an in-depth, 60-90 minute focused session in which we’ll discuss your baseline evaluation, and you’ll get your personalized plan, so you can see your path forward and feel excited to head toward your success. 

I’ll guide you in visualizing YOU at your BEST into a written, motivating description. 

Plus, you’ll get clear, realistic milestones with an actionable plan so you can move forward toward it. 

Let’s eliminate “can’t” and focus on “can”!

Step 4. I’ll work with you week-by-week to set goals and fundamental, concrete strategies so you can feel confident, see your progress and discover what works for YOU. 

You’ll get your blueprint for success – and be held accountable for following your personalized plan so you can feel motivated to develop the habits that will get you to your goals. 

Your 1:1 sessions are by your choice of a phone call or videoconference so that you can save more time. 

I’ll check in on your progress so you’ll always have accountability and your questions answered. 

I’ll help you set new milestones as you reach your goals and further customize your personalized strategy to lose weight, be at your healthiest, and feel and run your best.

By the end of the 12-week program, you can lose excess weight and enhance your self-confidence in your ability to reach your goals.

Instead of trying random things that don’t stick, you will also have a detailed, written, and practiced weight loss strategy that works for you and your life. 

You will have a new holistically healthy lifestyle that supports your goals and running achievements, so in addition to weight loss, you can go from demotivated to feeling energized.  

Schedule today and move forward to your goals!

Before After Photo 1

Case Study: After years of failed attempts at losing weight, Steph tried The Breakthrough Method and finally lost weight!

Despite being 39, Steph is now living her Ideal Vision and is back to what she weighed in her 20s. While losing weight, she also attained more self-confidence and mental strength. 

Before starting The Breakthrough Method with me, she went to a run club and felt self-conscious that she was the slowest one. 

People had to stop and wait for her, so she didn't return. 

After The Breakthrough Method, she passes those same runners in races, breaks PRs, and will soon run her own Boston Qualifier. 

She says:

"I had been in an overweight category for over a decade. My biggest fear was that I was going to sabotage my health and marathon PR goals if I continued to remain overweight.

I was approximately 40 pounds overweight when I finished my first marathon. While my highest mileage was around 55 miles, I could not lose weight through the training process... As a result, I hired Amie to provide that accountability and wellness vision to help me move the scale in the off-season.

We are three to four months away from my next marathon training season and I am down 20 pounds and I am already generating PRs over smaller distances. Amazing progress for me...

Amie developed a routine that really helped shred the fat from my body. My favorite part is accountability. It is sometimes nice to have someone that helps you stay on track.

Beginnings and plans are exciting, but it's the middle and the continuous grinding that can become tedious.

The accountability factor makes you think twice about not cranking out the work that it will take to achieve your goals. Someone is not ONLY watching but cheering for you. If you have consistently failed at achieving your goals, I would recommend a personalized plan with individual attention to you.

Amie understands we are all different and will coach you towards what is going to work for you, not the generic plans we have all tried. "

No questionable products, dangerous supplements, or extreme diets

Please be aware: “coaching” is an unregulated business, so some people call themselves coaches by making commissions selling you products, supplements, or extreme diets that you don’t need or that may be unsafe for you as a runner – or even your life. 

Or through pushing one-size-fits-all exercise programs that don’t work for you, or diet methods that don’t work for runners, or a woman’s metabolic needs. 

Instead, in The Breakthrough Method, you’ll get the support, guidance, and accountability you need so you can reach your goals and improve holistically for the long run.

You get a program geared toward achieving your goals through evidence-based, proven principles. 

Working with a professional who knows all about run training paired with weight loss, you can get The Breakthrough Method on its own or hand-in-hand with Private Run Coaching or a Training Group for a comprehensive total package. 

Therefore, you are not asked to buy supplements or use diets or workout programs that may not be right for you or your running. 

The techniques are derived from the gold standard of professional coaching with a weight-loss focus, combined with extensive knowledge of running so you get optimal results.

Case Study: After a devastating experience, her 50 lb. weight loss, running, and improved health helped Maurina rebuild her life.  

Maurina got her and her child away from an abusive partner along with a divorce, but she had to start her life over entirely. 

She felt that her weight loss and running were empowering. 

She says:

"Amie is the best coach anyone could ask for.

Amie helped me go from a "why would I EVER run if I wasn't being chased?!?!" to a half-marathoner (multiple times!!). I lost over 50 lbs. and became a healthier person because of the knowledge and support she gives.

Amie supports, teaches, and encourages everyone - no judgment on your size, how much fat you carry, how slow you are, etc. She is excellent at meeting you where you are at, and helping you get to where you want to be. Worth every dollar. I cannot recommend her highly enough."

Case Study: After a painful divorce, Sharee lost weight and is reclaiming her life through The Breakthrough Method!

Sharee had lost over 100-lbs in the past but had gone through profound life changes and setbacks, leading to re-gain. 

It affected her entire life; plus, her former weight loss methods no longer seemed to work for her, and she was feeling demotivated.

We didn’t use the scale because she felt she got obsessed with it, so instead, her initial goal (that she reached) was to fit into a favorite pair of jeans and wear them out proudly

She feels motivated by her ideal vision to reach her ideal weight, ran her first 10K in years, and is continuing her training to run her first marathon!

She says:

"My biggest fear was my own fear of failing or not being perfect with all my goals. Amie helped me to overcome my own mindset of needing things to be perfect.

She helped me challenge my own thinking and see the bigger picture and how perfect is not synonymous with progress. Things do not always have to be perfect in order to make progress toward your goals.

Amie helped me to see the bigger picture of my goals and ideal image, and to push through when I did not feel that I was doing enough and wanting to give up.

My favorite part was all the internal and mind-shift work. I went into this process expecting it to be very food and running focused.

While my own personal goals focused on these areas, Amie focused on helping me shift my mindset and to overcome my own internal dialog.

Amie was so supportive and helped me see the bigger picture. Yes I want to lose weight. Yes I want to reach my running goals. But it was more than that, Amie helped me see more areas for my health and wellness. I am excited to continue my goals with her.

Sometimes it takes an outside perspective from an expert to help us overcome barriers we may not be aware are present.

I thought the reason I was only able to stay on track with my food/workout goals for a few days, was because I lacked discipline. I had no idea that I was overtraining and not planning ahead enough with my meals.

I could stay on track during the week but when the weekend came I had no control and then would feel helpless come Monday. This was a cycle I continued for months.

Amie is worth every cent. If you are struggling to build better habits, reach your goals, and overcome personal barriers, I can not recommend her enough.

I fit into clothes I have not been able to wear for years. I am excited to continue my progress with her.

The Breakthrough Method - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

This program will discover the strategies that work for you, personally, to lose weight. 

Once you unlock the “secret” of what works for you, you can continue to lose any amount of weight that gets you to your ideal weight, size, or personal target. 

By the end of the 12-weeks, you will have your strategy mapped out, which saves you money as you are not paying for a program you are reliant on for the rest of your life. 

Although no weight loss program can guarantee results, the Breakthrough Method works for those who work The Method… During the 12-week program, clients have lost that stubborn last 5-10 lbs up to 40-lbs and have continued to lose weight with their customized strategies after the program ended.

Clients entering into the program usually have 30-40+ pounds to lose and are ready to commit to becoming the person they want to be. 

This program works best for beginning or returning runners or current runners in their off-season who aren’t in the middle of seriously training for a race. 

So while runners of any level can benefit from this program, it works best if you enjoy running.

Because let’s be honest, how much commitment will you have to this program if you know that running isn’t for you?  

While long-distance runners have found this has worked for them to get weight loss when nothing else has, many runners find this program helps them lose weight, stick to their new running programs, and find motivational strategies to make their running and nutritional habits last.

Because in addition to weight loss and improved running – it benefits your health! And let’s be honest, who doesn’t want better health? 

Also, I usually only offer personal online run coaching to those with a marathon or ultra goal. 

However, as an added benefit, I allow runners of any level who are being coached in the Running + Weight Loss Program to enter into Private Run Coaching to get more structured running guidance and that extra push they may need. 

Yes, we’ve also seen others out there who call themselves a coach just because they sell supplements.

We do not sell or push supplements, shakes, pills, or fad diets of any type. 

And, I’d be suspicious of anyone who tried those methods. Just because those supplements or that extreme diet plan may (or may not!) have worked for them does not mean it will work for you and may even be dangerous. 

Some supplements also do not work well for running because many have dangerous cardiovascular side effects that do not work well with exercise.

If a supplement or diet plan worked for everybody, everyone would have bought it by now.

Instead, The Breakthrough Method for weight loss is a program where you get to work with a Nationally Certified, experienced professional coach to discover the blueprint of what works for YOU, your running, and your lifestyle. 

A saying coined by endurance athlete and women’s health researcher Dr. Stacey Sims says, “Women are not small men.” 

Women can have very different needs and weight loss strategies than a man. Our hormone systems, metabolisms, and response to exercise are not the same.

This is why fad diets can also be more dangerous for women. Many of the studies on weight loss and endurance – have been done on men in their 20s! 

So if a man tries to fit you into a program that worked for him or generically brings up studies that say a specific diet or way of working out should work for you – I’d take that with a grain of salt. 

We’ve all seen the guys who cut creamer from their coffee or similar and lost weight and didn’t get why it didn’t work for us.

Or maybe you’ve felt the pull of emotional eating, or have gotten to certain times of the month (or your life) where going running feels like you’ve hit a brick wall, and they can’t understand… and let’s be honest, who wants to explain things like that to a male coach anyway.

I specialize in helping women lose weight and excel at running not only because I have been there – but because, through experience, I know that you need that type of specialization to get actual results.

I encourage you to try it on your own if you haven’t – you may succeed! 

However, I’m guessing that you may have already tried it yourself, or you wouldn’t be here right now.

Many also think they know what they need to do. But if that worked for you, let’s be honest, it would be working right now. 

Things won’t change until you make your life and your health a priority and take the first step to change them.

Set up your free consultation today, and let’s move forward.  

Step 1, realize that nothing changes until you prioritize yourself and take action. 

And I can’t think of anything more important than your health and wellbeing – can you? 

In reality, there is no perfect time to do anything. And, should taking care of yourself depend on if something else is going on or not? 

Because how can you be a role model or give your best to others if you are not at your best?

Honestly, waiting for something to change is like seeing if a fairy will show up and wave a wand and give you your new life. 

There will always be something else going on; the difference is when you make a stand and decide that It’s time to be proactive. 

Remember that not making a choice is still a choice – the only failure is when we fail to get up and try. 

Due to the unique nature of this program, space is always limited. So you have to take your shot when it’s there and decide that it’s time to invest in yourself and that YOUR TIME IS NOW.

Case Study: Andrea used The Breakthrough Method and lost 35 lbs!

"Before I started I was scared that Amie would encourage me to do workouts I don't have time for. But she did not put pressure on me to work out every day.

She listened to me instead of just giving generic advice... She's a good listener to tailor your program to your tastes and needs. I've lost 35 lbs so far!

My knee pain has also improved. Thank you, I really needed this!"
