Are you looking to maintain your lean, strong, and fit physique even in the midst of a crazy busy schedule?
Do you feel like there are some points in your life when you have your fitness totally in check? You’re working out consistently, you’re eating well, and you have your regimented schedule to keep you on track.
You feel on top of the world because everything’s going according to plan. You’re organized and on top of it. You ARE a perfectionist after all!
But then BOOM. Something interrupts your exact routine, and you start to struggle.
Whether you’re thrown into a stressful new project at work, have to stay home unexpectedly with sick little ones, or your holiday plans (as fun as they might be!) are simply starting to take over your schedule, you feel overwhelmed and off track.
And just like that, your fitness is the very first thing to come off of your very full plate.
Whatever that slightest thing is, it throws you off because if you can’t give it your all, then you can’t give it anything.
This all or nothing mindset gets you every time, and I get it.
It wasn’t long ago that I was in your shoes.
As a former corporate 9-5 girl, I really struggled with balancing my fitness and my career, even though the perfectionist in me would NEVER admit it.
Every Sunday night, I’d sit down with my planner and schedule my workouts to a T. I truly believed that more exercise done equaled more calories burned, so I’d budget at least two hours in a day for exercise! This often meant leaving no free time for myself, my friends and family, or even any wiggle room for those days my perfectly scheduled schedule went awry!
My weeks were a constant cross between either 1) life getting in the way and my workouts not happening at all, or 2) forcing my long workouts to happen anyways. I literally either felt like an enormous failure or I’d be completely run down and exhausted. Why couldn’t I just do everything in the ways that I wanted to do them!?
It wasn’t until I had an a-ha moment and decided that there had to be a better way, that fitness stopped consuming my life.
I gave myself permission to stop stressing about my workouts. I started allowing myself to simply do my best, even if it wasn’t according to plan.
Nowadays I have no trouble maintaining my physique and prioritizing my health while being a busy entrepreneur. I am passionate about helping women who have a lot going on create more freedom around their fitness so they can spend more time with their families and keep killing it in their careers without the burnout.
After making the switch from all or nothing marathon workouts to shorter and more intense ones, I’ve quickly learned that longer isn’t better and that endless cardio and classes AREN’T what get me my strong and lean body that I LOVE.
In fact, I’ve actually created a pretty amazing new normal for myself, and I help other women accomplish the exact same thing in their lives as well. How does this sound?
✅Being more productive and having more energy. How can you expect to have ANY energy when all you do is either work, parent, or spend hours in the gym? My girls no longer feel like they are trying to pour from an empty cup.
✅Getting your appetite under control. What a change to no longer feel constantly ravenous from super long workouts!
✅Not being injured and aching all the time. My clients understand the importance of slowing down, and now they prioritize rest and recovery too.
✅Not having your whole life centered around when you’ll get to the gym. Join the group of us who did away with the extreme Sunday night planning process all together and have learned to be more go with the flow and creative with our workouts.
✅And most significantly for us, on days when life happens, a workout still happens. This might be a 10 minute hotel room workout before heading to dinner with colleagues. It might be a few sprints at the local track. The mothers I coach take advantage of playground workouts with other moms because that’s where they can get fitness time, social time, and still be with their kids all at the same time.
TRUSTING that short and sweet workouts can be more effective than long ones has truly been life changing for me and my clients. By letting them be a little less perfect, they’ve become a whole lot more consistent.
Hi, I’m Athena Concannon, certified personal trainer, wellness coach, and owner and founder of Achieve with Athena.
And while yes, I work in the health and wellness industry, I’m actually not that much different than you.
I understand that it’s REALLY hard to believe that if you don’t exercise for a long time, it still counts as a true workout and can actually be BETTER for you.
But I’d say my fitness successes have more to do with my mindset shifts than anything else! Truly believing that something is better than nothing and that consistency will always beat perfection is what got me to where I am today.
My job allows me to speak with women every single day who struggle to fit fitness into their lives because of their all or nothing mentality. In the past year alone, I’ve had the privilege of working with dozens of women who feel this way!
This never-ending pursuit of perfection is hands down the biggest thing holding you back from achieving the health you desire, and I can’t drive it home enough: you DO have the time, and you DON’T need to spend hours in the gym to get the results you want.
Fitness simply does not need to feel like a struggle, and I want you to stop overcomplicating it! Give yourself permission to do LESS.
With #FitOnTheGo, you will:
> BECOME LEANER AND TIGHTER.
The metabolic nature of the #FitOnTheGo workouts will help you burn fat more effectively and create a physique change that hours of steady state cardio or overdoing it in the gym simply won’t get you.
> ACHIEVE CONSISTENCY WITH YOUR FITNESS.
You won’t feel the need to throw in the towel when life gets in the way. You won’t feel like you are constantly on and off the wagon. Because #FitOnTheGo workouts are so efficient and can be done literally anywhere, you’ll actually have the time to fit them in instead of letting them fall to the wayside. You’ll no longer say “I was doing sooooo good until [your excuse here]” because your exercise will be automatic and effortless.
> BE MORE FLEXIBLE.
You’ll learn to be less rigid when it comes to your workout schedule. You’ll realize that getting creative when things don’t go as planned is key, and you’ll know how to maintain your fitness regardless of whether you are busy with your kids, on vacation, or swamped at work.
> ADD HOURS TO YOUR DAY.
Because all the #FitOnTheGo workouts are 30 minutes or less, you will have more time to do all the other things that your life demands from you. Maybe you’ll even have some more time for YOU!
Here’s what women using the #FitOnTheGo methods have to say:
“I feel like #FitOnTheGo was tailor made for me. Between full time work with regular travel and two kids under the age of five, going to the gym was something I’d given up as “not for me.” I mean, when was I going to find an hour (or the energy) to go the gym or even do a home workout DVD?!
These #FitOnTheGo workouts were the perfect answer. Short, straightforward, and scalable so that my super fit husband and I could do them together and feel like we both got a good workout in without burning up all the time we had after the kids went to bed or before they got up. The workouts provide great variety and lots of options for all fitness levels. Best of all, they don’t require fancy equipment so they are super easy to do whether you are home, on a business trip, or even on vacation!” -Meaghan
“Ever since I had my son 10 months ago, I just can’t seem to find the time to make fitness the priority it used to be. By the time my husband gets home from work, the last thing I want to do is rush out of the house and spend my precious evening hours at the gym. I would occasionally go jogging with my baby, but no matter how many miles I logged, I didn’t see the results I wanted to on my body. I was starting to feel that it was impossible to both juggle my role as a mom and maintain my fitness. That’s when I signed up for Athena’s #FitOnTheGo program.
#FitOnTheGo is designed for busy people like me who have trouble getting to a gym or carving out hours-long chunks of time to workout. The workouts can be done in your living room with as little as a resistance band or no equipment at all. For me, the most eye-opening part of these workouts is that they can all be done in around 15-20 minutes and some in as little as 5! The exercises themselves are easy to learn using Athena’s photos and descriptions and the variety of moves make the workouts fun and interesting.
Since starting the #FitOnTheGo program, I have become much more consistent with my workouts because I can always find a few minutes to squeeze something in. Being part of an online community and posting about the workouts keeps me accountable and ensures that I’m getting the most out of my them. Learning from Athena through her #FitOnTheGo program has completely revolutionized my approach to working out and made it something extremely accessible that I can easily include in my daily routine without having to worry about childcare or missing out on valuable family or “me” time. I can’t recommend it highly enough!” -Ella
“As a consultant who travels every week for work, Athena’s #FitOnTheGo program has helped me maintain my fitness on the road and has enhanced my usual workout routine. I have done these workouts in hotel rooms before a 6 am flight, in local parks, hotel gyms, my own apartment, and even in my office during a late night at work! Athena has designed a unique program that is appealing to people at all levels and in all different phases of life.
Aside from the program itself, Athena is an incredible person to work with and support. In an industry that is growing so rapidly, making it harder to separate the good from the bad, Athena is truly one of the best. Her knowledge, attitude, and realistic approach to living a healthy, maintainable lifestyle makes her workouts that much more enjoyable. I highly recommend the #FitOnTheGo program, as well as anything else Athena has to offer.” -Jackie
“I’m someone who has historically fallen into the all or nothing trap when it comes to fitness: if I couldn’t make it to the gym for at least an hour, I would consider it not good enough and skip it.
The #FitOnTheGo program has helped me to completely change my thinking about what I can do in a short amount of time without going to the gym, and now I really have no excuses!
#FitOnTheGo has so many different workouts and moves in so many different formats with optional modifications, all of which can be done in less than 20 minutes, and it’s up to me to decide what I want to do with any given workout. I like getting to choose my own adventure!” -Patrice
“I used to be someone who took two or three Zumba classes back to back. If I couldn’t make it to class, I wouldn’t work out at all. When I hired Athena to get myself into routine, Athena asked me to give her 12 weeks and to trust the #FitOnTheGo process. I trust Athena, I did NOT trust the process, but in I went, and I have lost over 20 pounds.
I travel a lot, all over the country and world for work, and I no longer have an excuse to not exercise. It´s not all or nothing, and my fitness is no longer dependent on whether or not I can make it to a class.
My new #FitOnTheGo approach to fitness can go on the road to a hotel room floor in Venice, a cruise ship balcony in the Greek Isles, a conference center in Seattle, or the bedroom in my beach house.
I used to think that 15-30 minutes was not a real workout. I was wrong. I have SO much energy, I am SO much stronger, I eat WAY less, and I HAVE SO MUCH FREE TIME. It’s completely counterintuitive, and I still can’t believe it. But it´s working!” -Joy
“I use Athena’s #FitOnTheGo workouts during the week and feel very satisfied. They work wonders for me because I can adjust them to my mood for each day. If I don’t sleep well, I remain consistent by working out, but perhaps for not as long, and I modify the intensity. On other days, if I am feeling great, I’ll sometimes do a 15 minute bodyweight workout followed by a 15 minute band workout.
The #FitOnTheGo workouts are very manageable, time efficient, and the results are amazing. My body never fully bounced back after delivering 4 children, but by doing these 20 or 30 minute workouts, the results have been incredible around my midsection, arms, legs, and most importantly the smile on my face! I am having a good time challenging myself with new moves, and now I have more time to spend with my growing children!” -Katherine
“With two little ones and a full time job, I was feeling pretty limited with my workout schedule. On days where I couldn’t get to a morning barre class due to an early meeting or when my husband was traveling, I wasn’t doing any exercise at all.
With the #FitOnTheGo workouts, I realized I can squeeze in a workout after the kids’ bedtime, during nap time on the weekend, even on a Sunday night when I usually would be vegging out on the couch!
One part that works really well for me are the 5 and 10 minute workouts. I can motivate myself to do those because they are so quick, and then I always end up feeling good and adding on more afterwards. Having all the moves, with the pictures, in one convenient guide just makes it so EASY with no thinking or planning involved, and after a busy day, that is exactly what I need. Love this program!!” -Steph P
“The #FitOnTheGo workouts are phenomenal! I am someone who was honestly convinced that I had to go to the gym to get a really good workout. I certainly never thought I could achieve the definition I wanted by working out at home.
Athena’s workouts offer the challenging exertion I was looking for and can be performed almost anywhere I happen to be! I no longer have an excuse to skip my training on the days when my schedule doesn’t permit me to get to the gym. The best part of it all is that I am achieving my fitness goals without having to spend hours doing it!” -Ann-Marie
#FitOnTheGo has been just what I needed!! About two months ago, I hit a plateau and didn’t feel like spending an hour in class and 30-40 min getting there and back… just like that, two hours of my day would be gone.
#FitOnTheGo helped me realize that I can get solid movement in 25 minutes or less with a good sweat! Knowing the workout is shorter, I push myself harder because I don’t need to pace myself for an hour! All of the workouts are speedy and easy to follow, and I love that I can make any of the workouts easier or harder depending on what I’m craving for the day!
I am super thrilled to have all these workouts to go with me anywhere; especially on my weekends away and summer trips! So yes, next time you ask… I’ll take my fitness to go please!” -Steph C.
Yes, Athena! I totally want in, and I understand that #FitOnTheGo will include:
> Over fifty #FitOnTheGo workouts separated into different on the go categories: band, bench, bodyweight, power ups, sprints and stairs, and more!
> The #FitOnTheGo user manual with everything you need to know about the workouts and the program outlined in one centralized place.
> A comprehensive exercise glossary listing every single exercise in the program with photos, descriptions, and form cues.
> Supplemental quick glance photo tutorials to correspond with each workout in the program. These are designed to quickly print or screenshot and take with you for your workout, taking away all thinking and guesswork!
> Sample programming calendars for different goal sets so there’s zero confusion about what workouts to do when.
> Access to the #FitOnTheGo Social Circle, a free Facebook community for anyone who purchases the program to keep each other motivated and accountable.
I created #FitOnTheGo because I never want to hear you say that you can’t get a workout in ever again.
We ALL have 20 minutes, plain and simple.
And on a day that it feels like you really don’t, you have five. #FitOnTheGo has a whole section dedicated to 5 minute power ups for days just like this.
You can choose to get #FitOnTheGo and be fully equipped to handle ANY schedule conflict or interruption that comes your way.
Or you can choose the alternative: going back to your usual ways of being a victim, not getting your workout in, and complaining that your life is a mess.
Without #FitOnTheGo, you will keep struggling to lose weight, and being a perfectionist will continue to hold you down. It will prevent you from reaching your health and fitness goals.
Don’t let that be your choice. I made this program with you in mind, and I have your back on this. Trust me like the girls above did, and YOU WILL see the results you desire. Maybe even some you didn’t expect!
This time, give yourself permission to make a better choice, and say yes to yourself.
Frequently Asked Questions
What type of equipment do I need?
There is no equipment required in order to purchase this program. However, to get the most out of this program, it is recommended you invest in a variety of inexpensive resistance bands. Recommendations are made in the #FitOnTheGo user manual. There are also a few workouts that utilize a jump rope, but everything can be modified with a no equipment necessary mentality!
How long are the workouts?
The shortest workout in the program is four minutes and the longest is 30. Everything else falls somewhere in between!
Do I have to do the workouts in any specific order?
No. However, included in the program will be sample programming calendars that take the guesswork out of it.
What if I am currently doing another program?
That’s fine! A few of the programming calendars will provide suggestions for how to incorporate #FitOnTheGo workouts while doing other types of exercise. However, if you are looking to follow the #FitOnTheGo progression recommendations and use this as your MAIN form of exercise, the workouts are designed to be done 5 days a week with 2 rest days. I would simply caution to be careful of doing too much at once and overtraining. Ultimately, the beauty of #FitOnTheGo is that you can purchase it and save it for when the time is right for you. But what better time than now? 😉
Can beginners do this program?
#FitOnTheGo was designed with the intermediate exerciser in mind. Beginners can certainly do this program, however the expectation is that everyone will honor their bodies and make adjustments as needed for their individual circumstances. The comprehensive user manual provides modification suggestions, both regressions and progressions, and the program is designed to be as all-encompassing as possible.
Is there any coaching that goes along with this program?
Nope! #FitOnTheGo is a do it yourself (DIY) exercise program. Because it’s DIY and you will not have access to me in a coaching capacity once you’ve purchased the program, I’ve made sure to include as much supplemental information as possible in all of the accompanying resources. There IS a Facebook community component, but there will not be any formalized coaching in there. I’ll just be checking in from time to time!
What happens once I purchase?
Upon purchasing the program, you will receive an email from me at firstname.lastname@example.org with all the information you will need. If you do not see your email come in, please check your spam.
