If you're wary of giving another "diet" a chance, we don't blame you.  But This Isn't a Diet.

Our KICK START program is 28 days of guidance, education, accountability, and plain and simple recommendations to reach your weight loss goals. We steer clear of the "diet" mentality at Balanced Habits.

So if you’ve been struggling to lose weight and looking for the right fit, the BH KICK START is perfect for you to see what’s possible in just 
4 weeks time, all from the comfort of your home.

It’s really simple. So simple that we often refer to it as the “read it and eat it” program.

Success Story

Jill wanted to make a short-term commitment to see what she could learn in just 28 days. What we love about her testimony is that she listed everything she gained and never once mentioned what she lost (and yet she lost 11 lbs.!).  Well done, Jill!

Like we said above, we refer to the BH KICK START as a “read it and eat it” program and can be mastered by anyone, even if they aren’t interested in losing weight.

Who’s The Virtual KICK START Program For?

People who have a short-term goal tend to love this program the most! Or anyone who is curious about what they are capable of achieving

Learn nutrition, food prep, and recipe tricks to "hack" the amount of effort and time to get your body, health, and energy back

Experience the benefits of the 28 Day KICK START even when no BH authorized locations are near. You'll receive all of the support and benefits of the program, but with the convenience of participating right from the comfort of your own home.   


Frustrated What Once Worked 
Isn’t Working Anymore?

As Nutrition and Lifestyle Experts we don’t like to say these words “you have to stop enjoying….” and we’ve learned that telling people to stop doing or enjoying something is a sure path to rebellion and failure.  

Although the  BH KICK START is a “read it and eat it” program, there is a tremendous freedom of choice built in.  

Our mantra is “there are no bad foods, only bad portion sizes,” and we really mean that.

Stop Waiting For “Monday”

One of the excuses we hear time and time again is “this is a bad time/month/decade for me…..I’ll start on Monday.” Then lo and behold, Monday never comes.  

In truth, this is life and life is always happening.

You have to learn how to navigate the messiness of life and that includes knowing how to eat under any and all circumstances.  

“Continued improvement is better than delayed perfection.”

A Team You Can Trust

Founded in 2013, Balanced Habits is a nationally accredited nutrition program with Fitness Organizations NASM and AFAA. The variety of BH programs have supported over 175,000+ clients in reaching their goals across their network of 300+ food coaches and 150 authorized partner providers in the USA and Canada.

We have coached, educated and certified nearly 300 Fitness Professionals to be Balanced Habits Certified Food Coaches through our education courses and turned them into Nutrition Experts within their specific communities.  We have recently opened up this certification to others to manage our growing force of Food Coaches to support communities everywhere.

 As former professional athletes, coaches, and gym owners, founders Paul and Carolyn Fetters have a lifelong passion around helping others reach their health, fitness, and weight loss goals.

Sadly, it was the loss of Carolyn’s older sister and brother to obesity-related illnesses that really helped Balanced Habits come to fruition. It was the impact of something so preventable that became the catalyst for helping as many people as possible.

After helping professional athletes attain their health and fitness endeavors, Paul and Carolyn knew that helping the majority of the population reach their health and weight loss goals was a much simpler, and more meaningful quest.  Their combined set of skills in the health, fitness and nutrition fields, it was a natural fit to create Balanced Habits.

Besides the "quick 10" you could lose in just 28 days, the benefits don’t stop there.
Imagine how great it would feel to sleep better, have consistent energy throughout the day, better focus, looser clothing, and no more bloating.  

Then imagine along with all those benefits, having continuous support and accountability and the opportunity to meet new, like-minded friends.  

And like Jill pointed out, the “experience” of the 28 Day BH KICK START is worth every cent!

Results You Can Expect With The Virtual KICK START Program

Ron had literally failed to notice how he looked, but he realized he was out of control and needed a plan and support to get back on track. Boy did he get it! Ron did a 12 month BH LIFE term and lost over 100 lbs. Best of all, he knows what to do and how to do it now and for the rest of his life.

Leave embarrassment behind and develop a more confident and positive outlook on life.

Be happy and confident with how you look, feel, and live your life.  

Wear the clothes you love (maybe even getting back into your favorite jeans!) again.  

By achieving your weight loss goals and improving the way you feel about your body, your quality of life will significantly improve.

Check out Ron.

I couldn’t miss an opportunity to show you PATRICK.  He had to have a kidney transplant that landed him on several medications and gave him Diabetes.  He gained a ton of weight, got as weak as a kitten and felt awful. He decided to join a local gym and get help with his nutrition. 

Lucky for Patrick, his gym is an Authorized Balanced Habits provider and he got some excellent Food Coaching on the BH LIFE program.  He set some short and long-term goals on his 6-month LIFE term plan. Not only did he reach all his goals, but he was also able to go hiking with his sons on the Valley of Fire State Park near Las Vegas and do more than just keep up!  He also was able to get off many of the medications and is no longer considered a Diabetic!  

 HEATHER used to feel embarrassed about being obese.  She wanted to be a better role model for her young children and feel better while she participated on her Roller Derby team.  It started that she wanted to look good for her brothers wedding but she stayed after it and in 8 months, Heather lost 80 lbs. By learning how to eat real food to support herself and her specific lifestyle.  

Your world doesn’t have to get smaller and isolated.

If food is holding you hostage to this avoidable lifestyle you need the support of an expert.

Reach out for help. We look forward to speaking with you.

What's Next?

We encourage you to be an action taker and take advantage of this opportunity. This program is an interactive and fun way to kick start your weight loss journey. Discover what’s possible from learning how to eat real food to get real results.  

There are a lot of programs out there that promise all sorts of miracles, but none of them have been around for over a decade or supported 75,000 satisfied participants.

We feel so good about this program that is only offered 3 specific times each year.

Each installment is a new opportunity to create the change you wish to see.  

KICK START the new “you” today!

Don’t let this month pass you by, because it’s going to come and go no matter what.  

Wouldn’t you like to say that you created massive change instead of wishing you did?  Envision the person you want to see, stop putting it off, likely gaining more weight, buying bigger clothes and feeling physically or emotionally down.  Be an action taker today.

Some folks do the program just to learn what a portion of food visually looks like.  

People are often told to eat a certain number of small meals throughout the day but what does that look like or mean?  

People who want to:

The BH KICK START provides a literal “road map” with built in accountability, support, subtle education, exercise recommendations, and more.  

 The “3 C’s” (camaraderie, culture and community) that organically develop from the KICK START is one of the most valuable aspects to this program.

No one expected this to happen, and yet it does again and again.

We know that when you start losing weight, while still enjoying your favorite foods, you will self-eliminate what is not considered “good food” when you’re ready, not when we tell you to.

"This was honestly the best money I spent on myself in a long time. Once I learned how much I could eat  and how often, I soon learned how easy this would be. This program helped me lose weight but it took care of many other problems: I sleep better, I feel much better, I think better, I don't crave sugar.”

 Check Out What Past Participants Have Said About KICK START!

I went from watching people run local 5Ks to running them myself! In 28 days, I learned how to properly nourish my body, overcoming obstacles that had held me back, and literally became a new person. The best part was that during the holiday season, when I typically would have gained weight, I applied the principles I was taught and stayed on track with my goals. I wish I had known it would have been this easy 25 years ago!

This was honestly the best money I spent on myself in a long time. Once I learned how much I could eat and how often, I soon learned how easy this would be. 

This program helped me lose weight butt it took care of many other problems: I sleep better, I feel much better, I think better and I don’t crave sugar.

“I began my journey with KICKSTART in May 2017. At that point I was extremely overweight, very nutritionally deficient with several bad habits to change. The Training Spot provided a complete program specific to me that included fitness, nutrition and accountability. I still can’t believe the results I’ve achieved. To date I’ve lost a total of 115lbs! 

I physically feel amazing and have gained the confidence to let my personality shine.”

I very quickly felt healthier and had more energy from the way I ate and being more active. It encouraged me and gave me confidence to keep at it. 

I think the difference was the coaching that was provided. It really helped having people to talk to when I was having problems. This is not a diet. It’s a smarter way to eat and develop better habits.

The KICKSTART was the total kick in the butt I needed. 28 Days doesn’t seem like much time, but it was enough to see results were possible. In 4 short weeks I lost 15lbs of body fat. Being surrounded by such an amazing group of people completely shifted my mentality. I could not have done this without the KICKSTART system and The Training Spot Team who knows how to develop better habits to get results.

Balanced Habits KICKSTART provided me with a roadmap, as I call it, that made this journey clear and easy to follow. With these tools in place, you showed me how to properly use each one which ultimately led me to lose 29 pounds in 28 days. The results are amazing!

To Learn Useful Skills for Lifelong Health  


Discover Your Unique Portion Size

Everybody is different and the key to a successful outcome is knowing how much food in each meal will help you attain your specific goal. Unlike other programs that only allot a specific amount of calories per day, Balanced Habits goes a lot further by teaching you which foods are necessary to balance each of your meals throughout the day and the amounts required to elicit a metabolic response so you can feel satisfied and full of energy throughout your day.


Tracking Habits & Progress

Balanced Habits provides many resources to help participants navigate their journeys with ease, but the number one most important tool is journaling. A 2017 study found that people who frequently and consistently record their dietary habits experience more consistent and long-term weight loss. Throughout your program you will not only learn how to self-monitor your eating through journaling, but you will also receive personal reviews and advice from your certified Food Coach to learn areas where you can gradually improve on your food choices.


Group Participation

The final step to a successful result is the motivation and encouragement provided by both your Food Coach and fellow KICK START participants. The same 2017 study that found journaling to be an effective tool in weight loss, also noted that self-monitoring can sometimes quickly decrease over time. However, with the accountability provided by a group of your peers and led by the fitness and nutrition experts in your club, you will have everything needed to keep you focused and pushing to reach your full potential.

"I have tried many "diets" and I have always been initially successful, losing weight and feeling great, but then.... I fall off the wagon and gain the original weight back and usually additional weight too. I'm cautiously optimistic that this time will be different.

I know that you said that it's not a diet and I agree, it doesn't feel like one to me either. I don't feel like I am depriving or starving myself. My body is getting the fuel it needs, but not too much, and I feel energetic and satisfied after eating my meals.

My plan is to continue to journal for my food and exercise and meet with a coach monthly for weigh-ins, measurements, and photos to document my progress and to hold myself accountable too.”

Lost 13.2 lbs. & 7.5 inches  

-Barb P.

I decided I would take the challenge and try to eliminate some of my bad habits.  I knew I could stop snacking for 28 days, but it would be hard.  As the days passed, I had more energy and lost weight.  I’ve tried to develop a healthier lifestyle during the program and have copied pages from my journal to keep track of my meals now that I am traveling.  Thank you Tammy (and the rest of the food coaches from the Gym) for helping me take this opportunity to make better choices.

-Julie A. 

Lost 13.6 lbs. & 4.5 inches  

“Tammy, thanks for providing this program. I learned so much about the foods I should be eating and should not. Never once did I consider this a diet but more a lifestyle change.

Each time I went in for weigh in I always felt positive feedback, even when I felt like I didn’t achieve the goals I wanted. Thanks for all of the teams positive support.

The food list and amounts allowed me to pick and choose the items I wanted and never felt like I couldn’t make a meal that I wanted to eat. The smoothie recipe in the first meeting was a staple of mine.

This program is life changing for me because I feel like I’ve gained so much knowledge of what and what amounts I should eat and feel like even when I am not home I can make good decisions for my future.”

-Greg N.
