Hi There! I am Tara Frazier.
I am a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, Nutrition Specialist, Fitness Influencer and Health Coach.
I am also a mother to two young children, Professional Makeup Artist, and National Bikini Competitor.
I have been a Health & Fitness Coach for over 8 years, transforming the bodies of thousands of women and men, educating them on the proper balance of moderation and consistency. My mission is to allow my clients to achieve their Health & Fitness Goals without restriction, providing them with a sustainable method.
I am incredibly passionate on educating my clients on balance and long-term sustainability. It is important for me to provide my clients with realistic tools and methods to achieve their goals without restriction. I enjoy showing my clients that they can achieve any goal, earning the confidence they crave, through a consistent balanced journey that is filled with education, health, decadence and happiness.
My own personal Fitness Journey, Physical and Mental Transformation has molded me into the Athlete and Coach I am today.
Why and how you ask? I have been in your shoes.
Both Health and Fitness, were never originally part of my lifestyle,
nor was I genetically blessed with a physique that I felt comfortable with or proud of.
In order to transform my body, I realized that I need to adapt to a NEW lifestyle, creating new habits, in order to learn the tools for success.
In order to achieve my goals and gain the confidence that I dreamt about, I realized that transforming my mind was just as important as transforming my physique.
Losing over 100 pounds, not only once, but twice in my life, has taught me how to not only transform my body, but transform my MIND. Now, you may read that and think," wow, TWICE, she lost 100 pounds, twice, neat." But then again, not so neat. If I lost weight successfully the first time, WHY and HOW did I gain it all back? Good question. The answer, and one I am not proud of, RESTRICTION.
I first learned how to transform my body through a method of restriction, limiting and avoiding specific foods in order to achieve the physical results I craved. I limited dairy, any processes foods, refined carbohydrates, and even FRUIT. I saw results. I knew that my macro/caloric intake was allowing me to meet my results, so I stuck with it, no matter how unhappy I was. I practiced all the typical "bad food labeling" there was, and I am so embarrassed thinking back the habits and behavior that I demonstrated. With TIME, lots of time, extreme accuracy and consistency, I developed a physique I was very confident with. I met my husband in the gym and we both enjoyed living this fit lifestyle together. I remember avoiding all of his suggestions, that I "was too restricted with my food choices," and I threw them right out the door. I continued on the path I wanted because I was very happy with my new aesthetic, and finally confident of my body. About 7 years later, I was blessed to become pregnant with my first born. I completely stopped exercising, for no medical reason or suggestion, and my pregnancy was filled with over-the-top decadence, since I was so previously restricted and limited with what I allowed myself to consume daily. This practice of restrict, then heavily binge, lead me not only to gain all of my weight loss back, but it left me with a very confused and negative relationship with food. I had to learn the tools for success ALL OVER AGAIN, transform my body, and my lifestyle, yet again. But I knew there had to be another way, a better and balanced way. I was able to transform my body and my mind again, but this time through consistent proper training and flexible and Balanced Nutrition through counting Macros. I did not limit food groups; I did not deprive myself of what I wanted. Instead, I learned how to fit my favorite foods into my daily diet with moderation. Once I realized how amazing I felt both aesthetically but mentally, I felt so foolish of what I had previously practiced. With continued accuracy, consistency and TIME, I never looked back and kept this approach up and eventually this balanced and flexible approach to counting macros felt automatic and like second nature. Years later, I was blessed to become pregnant with my second child. I was able to have very healthy and fit pregnancy the second time around, and I was proud of my physique at all stages.
