How Extra Toughs Works

The Extra Toughs program includes 12-week wellness cohorts. Cohorts provide exercise, nutrition, and counseling to participants. Although we encourage enrolling at the beginning of a cohort, women are able to join at any time during the year. Extra Toughs members pay a monthly fee to participate.

"I am a stage 4 breast cancer survivor on active treatment for 6 years. This group has helped me by educating me on the ways I can help my body fight back and recover using nutrition."  

“I just love all the ladies and being involved with all the progress and love with each one. I really appreciate that I can still have the benefits of nutrition and exercise on days that I can’t be there live. It’s wonderful.”
"My main focus is on my health, reducing stress and inflammation, increasing fat loss and gaining strength."
