Thank God For This Paper

Samantha Taylor, Samantha Taylor Fitness When I started my Personal Training business for women 21 years ago in this area, I was looking for a way to get my name out there.

I knew something within me was … Continue reading Thank God For This Paper

Even in My Pain, I Trust You

Samantha Taylor Samantha Taylor Fitness Many times it’s tragedies in life that test what we truly believe. I know this more than ever because it’s been over a month since my husband went to heaven. He was only 51 and in absolutely incredible physical shape, investing most of his life in health and fitness, so this is quite a shock. Honestly, I thought that with the level of care we took with our health that a physical illness wouldn’t be something that either of us would have to worry about at a young age. But I have painfully and humbly … Continue reading Even in My Pain, I Trust You

How to Transform Your Mind to Change Behavior

Samantha Taylor, Samantha Taylor Fitness Have you ever wondered why you do the same thing over and over again when it causes you pain or frustration? I have asked this question for years because I used to struggle eating foods that I would regret, but then do it again. I had all the “knowledge” about food and nutrition, but I still couldn’t stop eating unhealthy food. Many years ago, I started to search in the Bible for answers to this and I found scriptures that talk about being transformed by the renewing of your mind. That word transformed means metamorphosis, … Continue reading How to Transform Your Mind to Change Behavior

Honoring Mom

By Samantha Taylor Samantha Taylor Fitness A mom dedicates so much of her life to raise her children, investing her time to be there for whatever her kids need.

How NOT To Gain 5 Pounds This Month

By Samantha Taylor I know it’s been a tough year and many have put on over 15 lbs. with the stress of it, so I encourage you to not keep that pattern going.

I … Continue reading How NOT To Gain 5 Pounds This Month
