Have you been working to lose weight? Do you feel bulky and struggle to achieve a longer appearance? Do these goals sometimes feel like lost causes? When you look in the mirror, it’s common and easy and it even becomes habitual to see what’s “wrong”.

The way you see yourself and address these issues is impacted by your daily habits.

I guarantee you’ve got plenty of habits. Some are probably great and some are damaging. When you think about the deeply ingrained things you’re trying to undo and the sometimes BIG things you’re trying to build – that’s a lot to take on.

I used to trust the idea that it takes just 21 days to form a new habit. When you consider the length of your life, that’s soooo quick! Just 3 weeks!? I would say that’s wishful thinking for most of us and new studies have shown it takes quite a bit longer.


Research suggests that it takes an average of 66 days to form a new habit. That’s over 2 – months or 3x as long as what we were previously led to believe.

The length of time to make real change is not the only factor to consider. In addition to this, research in the area of habit formation found that people are most successful when habit change is simple and sustainable.

You’ve gotta tackle your demons little by little each and every day. That’s when the lasting transformation can occur. That’s when your body will change.

And that’s what we’ll be doing in the LIVE January round of The Dancer’s Best Body Program. The big focus is on creating new healthy habits consistently and incrementally.

You’ll be held accountable through the private Facebook group and group coaching calls to ensure that you’re staying committed to the habit changes necessary to make your body goals a reality.

The Program is 8 – weeks long, that’s about 56 days. I want to support you based on this habit formation research so I’ve decided that all participants can reach out to me for an additional 14 days after the program ends. This way we’re safely into the 66 day successful habit formation zone!
