Announcement Time

Posted: November 23, 2011 at 7:47 am

Well, I have had a whirlwind of a few weeks over here. I missed all of you so much! I can’t express enough gratitude for your patience while I got some important things sorted out. Some scary things. Are you ready for the announcement? Here goes!

I will no longer be blogging at Faith Fitness Fun.

Yes. You read that right. I will no longer be blogging here at FFF.

That’s only because you will now find me blogging somewhere else.

I sincerely hope you will join me at my new site and blog – Best Body Fitness at www.tinareale.com

You might wonder, “why the change?”

After getting my NASM certification, I knew I would have to make a choice. Sit on my certification and keep going with the blogging I have set up here on FFF. Or do something new that can allow me to start doing something with the passion and goals I had for myself when first deciding to get certified.

I couldn’t do both. I couldn’t run two separate sites. Or blog and seek out work somewhere outside the home as a trainer. I just couldn’t.

Which is why I’m here now. Taking a leap of faith and leaving behind the known for the unknown.

I shared this quote last week, because I couldn’t think of anything more fitting. This change is painful. It’s painful to say goodbye to a site I love. It’s painful to think of losing any of you. It’s painful to know my dreams could crash and burn right around me.

But, it is beautiful. It is beautiful to do what I know is right and trust the journey.

Time for the details!!! What is Best Body Fitness even like???

Best Body Fitness will be a site dedicated to helping others achieve a healthier lifestyle. A place to encourage a fit, strong, healthy body as the best body you can have. I will offer online personal training services (and am open to communication in setting up in-person training in my area). While I will provide online training, that is NOT the focus of Best Body Fitness!! It will still be a personal site.

I didn’t want to give up something I love so much with blogging – and I won’t. We will still be able to connect in that same capacity over there. I think the community is vital to having a site that encourages others in a healthy lifestyle. Which is why I will still be blogging there. It will certainly take a different format with a bit more focus on sharing fitness, motivational topics, recipes, and such…but I refuse to turn into an impersonal site!

You will still get personal updates. Still catch up on my running, my family, my thoughts, “Stuffed With Emptiness” posts, etc. You will still see similar topics to what I cover here. Just at a new place. Not more than once a day. A bit more fitness, healthy living focused. And with training offered through the site at a very affordable price. A full MONTH worth of workouts and support for less than a one HOUR session with most in-person trainers. You know I love a deal!

PS – I will NOT be hounding you every day with “Train With Me!!!” comments!  Winking smile

Go ahead and check out the FIRST POST now! Then, pretty please:

Also, be sure to let me know if you’re interested in any training or if you have any questions. Send them to me at [email protected]

Before I sign off here, I must do something:

Thank you for making FFF such a wonderful part of my life. Thank you for the endless support. Thank you for believing in me. This isn’t goody-bye. It’s just a new beginning. A new beginning that I hope you will take with me. Cheers!

    Aww, glad you haven’t stopped blogging!
    Checked out your new site and it’s fabulous! Congratulations! I am so happy for you…you are so wise to just continue on with one site…makes like a lot simpler when you’re already so busy!

  2. STUFT Mama says:

    Tina- GOOD LUCK with your new adventure! I’m so excited for you! I think it’s a smart choice to put it all together into one blog. I struggle EVERY DAY trying to blog on here and run my own fitness business. We may need to talk business stuff! :) I’m supporting you 100% of the way! :) YOU ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hugs! Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. I don’t know that I will be following anymore because of the change in blog style, but I wish the best of luck to you, Tina!

    • Tina says:

      I can understand and respect if you decide that, but I hope you will give he new site a chance. The blog portion itself will still be very similar I will still openly sharing my faith, thoughts, life, etc alongside fitnesssome fitness related content, which I regularly included here as well. The main reason for the blog site switch is I wanted to do something with my certification. If I trained in a gym, I would have had to quit blogging completely and knew I would hate to do that. The new site allows ne to have the pèsonal style blog + use of my cert all in one place :)

  4. Marie says:
