We know that the work you do outside the gym is as important as the work you do inside. That's why we've made nutrition coaching a priority. TS has teamed up with Balanced Habits, a leading nutrition coaching program, to launch our Life Program. The Life Program is perfect for anyone that is interested in improving their nutrition and creating long-term healthy habits.
What is the Balanced Habits Life Program?
Throughout the program, we pair you with your own BH Certified Food Coach, who designs a customized eating plan to your goals while taking into consideration your lifestyle, body type, etc.
No single plan works for everyone, and we understand how important it is to develop a strategy that makes sense and is easily implemented. The program emphasizes what we came to call a "Füduation," an education on how to eat real food to get real results.

Nutrition Success Stories
Just like in our fitness programs, each of our clients have different goals.
Sal looked to create healthier habits and to lose weight.
“During the 28 day challenge, I lost a total of 18.5 pounds and won the contest! I even had to buy a new suit!” said Sal. “I have already incorporated the challenge’s portion awareness by continuing to measure units each day.”
Jackie, an avid weightlifter, looked to improve her eating habits while sustaining her training routine.
“I have always struggled with food choices and never really put my diet first. This program taught me that I can still enjoy food while at the same time managing portions and making the right choices about what goes into each meal,” said Jackie. Jackie lost not only 7 pounds but also 6 inches off her waist.
More Frequently Asked Questions
Q: HOW WILL THE PROGRAM WORK?
First, we will start with an assessment. This will include taking measurements of your body, weighing you, and taking “before” photos to demonstrate your progress throughout the program. We will ask you questions about your diet and activity level as well. All of this information is then relayed to the registered dietitians at our partner, Balanced Habits. Working with Balanced Habits, we will create a personalized meal plan along with grocery shopping lists and recipes. We will also provide special workouts to help you maintain your fitness and supplement any of the workouts that you do already at TS. Each week, you will be weighed in and you will submit a food journal of your dining habits from the week before. This keeps you accountable!
Q: ARE THE NUTRITION PLANS SUPER STRICT?
Vegetarians, vegans, and folks who eat Paleo are all great fits for the program. Depending on your goals and activity level, you are assigned a number of daily food points, divided into fats, carbs, and protein. Each recipe that we give you will tell you the appropriate serving size and the corresponding number of points. Balanced Habits stresses the importance of portion sizes and balance. If you love cheese, you can still eat your cheese!
Q: WHY JOIN THIS PROGRAM WHEN I CAN DO THIS ON MY OWN?
If you are looking to improve your nutrition, this is really a great way to do it. At TS, our motto is Together Stronger. You will not be alone in this process. By bringing in the community aspect, we hope to create accountability. When you are working through the program with like-minded peers, you will be motivated to keep going!
Q: WHAT ARE SOME OF THE OTHER BENEFITS OF THIS PROGRAM?
Our program requires you to spend more time in the kitchen, cooking your own meals. Compared to restaurants, home cooked food is typically healthier as you know exactly what you are putting into your body. Additionally, most meals will be cheaper to make at home than take out, saving you money in the process.
Q: WHAT IF I AM A HORRIBLE COOK OR I DON’T HAVE TIME?
The recipes are very straightforward and most folks should be able to reproduce them at home. This is a great way to learn to cook, too! We will provide you with Grab and Go meal ideas so that you can continue the program while you maintain your busy New York lifestyle.
Q: WHY DID YOU PARTNER WITH BALANCED HABITS?
Balanced Habits has developed a program that really works. They have thousands of success stories. The key is that this program is designed to create healthy, long-term habits that will keep the weight off. It is not a quick fix.
