When I first met Samantha Taylor, she had 1 location in Land O’ Lakes. Now, 3 years later, she has 4 locations across the Tampa Bay area and is about to open her 5th! Her newest studio in Westchase has only been open 4 months but many health conscious women around town already knew her. Samantha started her personal trainer career in the Westchase area and quickly became one of the top personal trainers of all Lifestyle Gyms before branching out on her own. “One of the first ladies to join in Westchase reminded me that I had come to her house 22 years ago to train her,” Samantha says. “I would bring my bench with bars and dumbbells and set up in her living room. She said she was so excited when she saw my sign go up at my new studio.”

Samantha Taylor Fitness for Women offers proven fitness and nutrition programs that work. Part of her success comes from her understanding of the issues we all face when it comes to food and nutrition. “I was a food addict,” says Samantha. “Like most people I was taught the wrong way to eat food. I had to learn how to change my relationship with food. I still love food and enjoy it but have made the decision to not eat food that causes diseases and is bad for my body.”

Samantha says that on her 40th birthday, her husband challenged her to give up sugar. “It seemed like a massive thing to do because I was a sugar addict but my first goal was to go 3 months without sugar.” Samantha says that giving up sugar and other harmful foods does not mean you have to eat bland, boring meals. In fact when you are a member of Samantha Taylor Fitness you have a nutrition educator developing yummy recipes for you and giving you customized grocery lists to make your weekly meal planning a breeze. “Everyone loves the zucchini lasagna,” says Samantha. “For my birthday the staff made our no sugar, low carb, gluten free cheese cake. It is delicious.” Samantha has these and other holiday treat recipes for cookies and chocolate pecan pie posted on her web site for Tampa Bay News & Lifestyles readers to check out.

Another special offer just for our readers this month is 10% off the entire program. “I’d like to motivate people to start getting in shape before the New Year. Don’t put it off any longer. In December you need to start thinking and planning for January.” Don’t be that person, who gains weight during the holiday season, be the one who loses it and get 2018 off to a great start.

Samantha has helped many clients who thought they were too old or too far-gone to lose weight. Her client Kate, just celebrated her 65th birthday by going zip lining, mountain climbing and horse back riding. “When Kate first came to me she was 50 pounds overweight,” said Samantha. “When I met her, she was one of the most upset people I’d met for she felt hopeless. She said she could not believe how fat and old she had gotten and that it was just who she was and she’d come to accept that.” Samantha told Kate that she had to make up her mind to live differently and Kate accepted the challenge because she didn’t have anything else to lose. Fifty pounds later and Kate is a totally different person with a new outlook on life. “I’m so glad that God brought Samantha into my life,” she said. “Feeling this good at 65 and celebrating my birthday like this has been absolutely amazing.”

Samantha also sees a lot of clients who have been exercising their whole lives but have stopped seeing results. “Judy who is 62 worked out for an hour and a half every day for 2 years but was not seeing any results. She joined my program and lost 31 pounds in 4 months. She was overtraining and her nutrition was not in line. She just came to a seminar we held on surviving the holidays without gaining weight and said, ‘I don’t tell myself I’m on a diet just that I made some adjustments to my nutrition. Samantha showed me the way to do that.’”

In addition to the nutritional education and support, Samantha Taylor clients also have a Life Coach cheering them on and helping them through the program and 30-minute exercise programs tailored for the way they want to work out. “We have 2 different types of 30-minute exercise programs. Personal training is a more private, customized training either 1-on-1 or in a semi-private or small group setting and Fitness Boot Camp is a faster paced, more intense group workout led by our personal trainers.”

When you talk to Samantha, her enthusiasm is infectious and her desire to help others impressive. “Our country is in a massive health crisis. One out of 3 people die from cancer and one of 2 suffer from heart issues. We need to change that. My goal is to open 20 locations throughout Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties. My mission is to positively impact 10,000 families in those communities over the next 5 years.” An ambitious goal for sure but one that does not seem impossible when Samantha is taking it on as a challenge.

If you want to be one of those people positively impacted, if you’ve struggled with weight gain and are ready to make a change, schedule an appointment with Samantha Taylor Fitness. With just 30 minutes of exercise 2-3 times a week and guided nutritional support; you’ll be on your way to a happier, healthier you. Be sure to mention you read about the program in Tampa Bay Neighborhood News & Lifestyles to get 10% off when you join in December.
