Are You Ready to Start Getting Healthy?

Are you ready to start a health and fitness program? Great! Let me help you get started.
Hi! My name is Rasa DeLafosse and I am certified through W.I.T.S as a personal fitness trainer and have 11 years experience. I also have experience in small group training and aqua fitness. It is my mission to help women achieve their level of fitness and feel more confident and happy. I’ve had my own struggles in food choices and exercise and know how challenging it can be to start again.

– Set a reachable short term goal. If you want to lose weight, start by losing five pounds. Eliminate some processed snacks (chips, chocolate, crackers), reduce the amount of alcohol beverages and sugar-filled sodas. Instead, eat more veges and fruits and healthier option snacks e.g. celery and hummus, have some dark chocolate.
-Prepare your own meals and eat out as a treat. Helps save money too.
– Prepare meals without beef, pork, chicken or fish a few times a week. Basically, if it has eyes, don’t eat it. I went vegan 5 yrs ago and it’s great but difficult too. Send me an email for recipes of quesadillas, cookies, and pancakes too.
– Drink half your weight in ounces. If your weight is 140 lbs, drink 70 oz. of water.

Start an exercise program but see your doctor first if you have medical issues.
– Start by walking. Get 30 minutes of activity each day. Break it into 15 minutes segments if time is short. Find a local 5k race and walk it.
– Find a real fitness app and not influencers. My favorite is the Peloton app. I’ve used it over 5 years. So many options and levels. It includes, strength, walking, running, mediation, cycling, cardio, boot camps as well as various programs. Walking will never be the same 🙂 I love my Peloton bike. Friend me on Facebook and you can get a 30 or 60 day free trial.

Fitness clothing.
– sports bras should support the girls
– for walking, I prefer Mizuno wave rider and ASICS gel Keyano. These both offer wide widths.
Socks – Wrightsock Double layer Coolmesh II. No blisters.
Pants – lululemon with side pockets. Great place to store your phone while walking using the Peloton app.

“Be motivated by what you can do, not defeated by what you can’t.” Remember, the best exercise is the one you can actually do.

In health, Rasa DeLafosse, rasadelafosse@gmail.com

Fantasy Photo Shoot – Princess and Warrior

2017-01-13T03:47:48+00:00

PRINCESS WARRIOR SHOOT FEATURED IN THREE MAGAZINES

Photo Shoot Collaboration: Jean Sweet gathered her friends, Tracey Stokes (owner of Navii Salon) and Jeanette Frost (makeup artist) to collaborate on a location shoot in the Detroit area. Jean wanted to create a “princess – warrior” theme, inspired by the Dark Ages. Jean engaged Marisa Choate to design the costumes and jewelry, and worked many long hours with Tracey Stokes to construct hairpieces prior to the shoot. The crown and headpieces incorporated in the hair are all made from human hair extensions. The team shot on location in a park and in the studio to be able to produce different hair collections for three different magazines. The Detroit Metropolitan Magazine and Dark Beauty (Online) featured some of the location images, and American Salon published an exclusive with the studio shots.
