Who’s ready to lace up their shoes and join me and our T.R.I.B.E.™ community over the next 3 months?!

This journey is a race, not a sprint. You must pace yourself in every aspect. This summer in the T.R.I.B.E.™ We will be using the slogan and #paceyourself. Together, not only are we going to move our bodies, but we are truly going to tackle consistency on this journey TOGETHER!

We start June 6th

Watch the video below to learn more.

Together, we are going to do something we probably never thought we could do.

Ever dream about being able to move your body and/or find movement your body loves?

Now's Your Chance!

Have you ever struggled with:

Feeling overwhelmed with the food tracking
not knowing how to plan your workouts
feeling restricted
Struggling with working out consistently
and, most importantly, feeling so alone?

Well, then I have the perfect plan for you!

T.R.I.B.E.™ cuts out the confusion of not knowing what to eat or how to move your body after WLS.

We also support you and hold you accountable as you work towards hitting all your goals!

Not much of a runner? That’s okay! You don’t have to be!

Our T.R.I.B.E.™ 5k Training program is accommodating to ALL people. Whether you are a conditioned runner, someone who’s never worked out, or perhaps you struggle with joint pain or other physical challenges, don’t worry we’ve got you covered!

This is the FIRST Bariatric Specific 5K training program out there!!

Have you ever tried using a generic 5k preparation app on your phone? Sure, those training programs are perfectly fine for the average person, but you Babe, are not average. YOU are a bariatric patient and as a bariatric patient you have unique needs and challenges. Not only when it comes to training properly but when it comes to fueling properly too!

I know that the journey to fitness after weight loss surgery can be a challenging one, but I'm here to make it a whole lot easier and a lot more fun.

Not only is this 12-week training program designed specifically for those who have had WLS, it's also written by our team's registered dietitians and physical therapists who know what they're talking about.

They've taken into account the unique needs of our community and created a program that's perfect for us!

what others are saying

our commitment is To create the most inclusive space in the WLS community

From "emotional binge eater" to "mastering maintenance with ease".

"After learning the bariatric basics my anxiety with food is totally gone. I’m an emotional binge eater, but through using Jamie's Bariatric Breakthrough Meal Plate Method I’ve been able to take the power away from food. Using this tool, I learned new coping mechanisms and realized that there are no “good” or “bad” foods.”


From "extreme anxiety" to "losing 30+lbs of regain without counting calories."

"The bariatric basics, along with the Bariatric BreakthroughMeal Plate Method, truly saved my life. I finally stoped comparing myself to others and started practicing daily self-care to manage my extreme anxiety. I'm proud to say using this approach I've maintained 30lbs of regain I lost for almost 2 years now without ever having to count one single calorie. ”


"The guidance through the aspects of the bariatric experience, along with the community style support were invaluable to me. I was able to see that not only was I not alone in my struggles, but that I was being unnecessarily hard on myself. The mindset work that is built within the program truly gave the perspective I needed to grow in many aspects of my life. ”

Judi Jin

"This program helped me realize why mindset work is just as (if not more) important than the calories I consume. The mindset work is what sets us up for long term success and gives us the tools to find other coping mechanisms than food (which was previously the answer for all of my emotional issues). Jamie provided an outline for how to continue the goal-setting and mindset work that the program had laid the foundation for. The ongoing support that I receive from Jamie and the other T.R.I.B.E. leaders and members has been one of the best parts of my life.”

Ashley King

"My biggest takeaway from the program is the importance of consistency without perfection. I am able to be present with my family, at work, in my religious services, and with my food. I’m more accepting of myself and of others. And to top it all off, I also lost weight.”

Ann Panchik

From "perfectionist" to "I am worthy and I am enough."

"Jamie’s group coaching class has taught me about being consistent, that progress is more important over perfection, that having a B- mindset and “half-assing” it is better than “no-assing” it. Her approach has changed my all or nothing mindset. My biggest win or epiphany...on mindset work [is] that I am worthy just as I am. If I never [lose] another pound on this journey, I am worthy and I am enough. This gave me the freedom I needed to work on getting out of the perfectionist all or nothing mentality. If you are considering joining this program, don’t even waste another second thinking about it, just do it!”

Alyssa Gomez

From "goal-averse" to "prepared for the road ahead."

"Fear of failure has very often kept me from even creating goals in the first place. Through the program, I was able to create small incremental goals and [break] down what action steps would be needed to reach those goals. It was very helpful and made me feel less “goal averse.” I was able to build up my toolbox to ensure I was prepared for the road ahead and set myself up for long term success...You are worth the investment!”
