Powerful results from petite peers

Maggie, 5’3”

Lost 25lbs

“April’s approach is totally science-based, and she explains WHY we did every single move. I honestly cannot say enough good things about her—she was motivating, empowering, knowledgeable, and just fun! A few days after we finished my program, I was in my best friend’s wedding, and people couldn’t stop commenting on my “Petite PWR arms!”

Saryn , 5’3”

Lost 4lbs & body recomposition

“I ate around 1850 calories a day, gained quite a bit of muscle, and I STILL went from 120 lbs to 116.8 lbs during the 12 weeks. Major success! Measurement-wise, I am smaller all over. I can tell a distinct difference in my stomach (which is an area I really wanted to work on)!”

Jennie , 5’1”

Lost 45lbs

“For the first time in a long time, I felt like food didn’t control me. I also saw a big change physically. My main goal was to lose weight/fat— throughout the 12 weeks in Petite PWR I dropped 10 pounds! April’s approach to nutrition is very sustainable. It took me out of the crash-diet mentality and into a healthy relationship with food.”

Yana, 5’0”

Lost 8lbs

“My first transformation was mental. I stopped berating myself over my eating habits, over doing or not doing exercise, and focused on what I WAS doing that day. With my physical transformation, I honestly didn’t realize how grand the difference was until I saw the photos side by side!”

Suzette 5’2”

Lost 15lbs in 12 weeks

“I’m so excited to see my transformation! It has been challenging with a busy work schedule and limited time, but I have more energy and confidence that I somehow lost over the past several years. I’ve lost 2 inches in my waist and have more defined arms and thighs.”

Catherine, 5’0”

Lost 13lbs in 12 weeks

“Working with April, I have seen so many positive changes in my outlook and mindset, being a petite person. My metabolism is up and my relationship with food has improved for the better – it is no longer an internal struggle when I’m enjoying a meal out with friends. I’ve lost weight, increased muscle definition, slimmed my waistline, and improved my strength.”
