When I was about to turn 40, I remember women saying to me, “Oh just you wait until your 40’s and 50’s…the weight gain is unavoidable and you can’t eat like you used to”
You know what, at 44 years old, I’m not buying it. Yes, many women experience weight gain as they get older, whether due to a slowing down of their metabolism, changes in their sleep routines or stress levels, muscle breakdown (which happens as early as our 30’s, known as sarcopenia), or just the hormonal havoc that takes place. BUT there are steps we can take to prevent the weight gain. And while it may be harder than it was in our 20’s or 30’s, it’s certainly not time to surrender to the whole aging process!
There is a direct relationship to the amount of lean muscle mass we have to our metabolic rate. Meaning the more muscle we have, the more calories we’ll burn.
One of the most important things you can do right now, in an effort to preserve and gain muscle, is to lift weights. That’s what #buildandchill is all about.
#buildandchill is a 9 week online group coaching program focused on building and preserving lean muscle mass and learning strategies to reduce lifestyle stress. Because really, ALL women could use a bit more chill in their lives.
What's Included in #buildandchill
12 workouts to build strength, increase lean muscle mass, lose fat, and increase your metabolism + Custom warm ups and mobility drills, for each workout, to produce more efficient movement patterns, and reduce daily aches, pains, and stiffness.

Weekly stress reducing tools and strategies.
Access to a private FB group for support, community, accountability + workout videos.
Weekly FB lives focused on fitness, nutrition, and lifestyle "lessons"

I am limiting the group to a max of 12 women, so that we can maintain a high-level coaching and accountability atmosphere for optimal results in 9 weeks.

Hi! My name is Rebecca Brown. I’m an in-home and online holistic fitness coach. “Holistic” because we must address lifestyle factors such as stress, sleep, nutrition, and mindset (Are you happy? How do you feel about your body? etc.) as these things will directly impact not only how our bodies look and feel, but how successful we’ll be in the gym.
My mission is to help women be tuned into their bodies, honor their energy, and (most importantly) chill out.
