 This is our basic one on one on how to start a health and fitness program. We cover the basics of nutrition, fitness, and supplementation. 

This Video Provides the following Info

I am excited to host our first bi-weekly IsaBurn and Learn. We are here to give you a fun high intensity workout (geared for all fitness levels) and to teach you the basics on how not to fall into the traditional "New Years Resolutioners" crowd. Fad/crash dieting is not sustainable, going to the gym 6 days a week for 2 hours is not practical, and I hate to break it to you but the "6 pack in 6 minutes a day" infomercial device doesn't work. We need to learn the basic fundamentals of what makes the body more self-sufficient. How can we boost our metabolism naturally, why is lifting weights more important and how can we live a balanced life and enjoy the foods we love while maintaining a healthy body mentally and physically. 


That is why we are are going to have some fun, enjoy some delicious healthy food and learn the basics on how to be successful on your personal health and fitness journey.
