Want to lose weight, get fit or both? Through doTERRA I discovered an amazing health challenge called TERRAfit. It was such a game changer for my health that I decided to become a coach!
This was me in 2014…
A muay thai LOVING mum at the peak of fitness, about to try my first amateur bout in the ring after a few novice fights. Then I unexpectedly fell pregnant! I lived off cheese sandwiches and marmite on toast for 9 months whilst battling debilitating morning sickness and basically felt YUCK. In total I gained 17 kilos.
I started TERRAfit because I needed HELP to get back to reasonable eating and workout habits. I was daunted by the idea of kickboxing again and unmotivated about the idea of eating clean. I don’t like fad diets or extreme exercise programmes and I don’t believe they work in the long-term. I need to be motivated and I like achieving as part of a team. The fact I could have both these things to help me lose weight and get fit again was what attracted me to TERRAfit!
TERRAfit provides support across 12 weeks to eat less and better and exercise more, as part of a team supported by a certified TERRA coach. You eat from a healthy food list, exercise 5 days a week and there are daily challenges to educate and inspire/motivate. An added bonus is the potential to win cash prizes at the end of the 90 days!
TERRAfit works on a point system that tracks your nutrition, hydration and exercise. You have to try and hit 100 points every day. Points are taken away for skipping exercise, meals and eating unhealthy foods. You get bonus points for supporting your progress with essential oils and supplements.
The motivation this challenge has given me is almost indescribable. It couldn’t have come at a better time either. I was a new mum, struggling the juggle of having 2 children instead of one. I guess my diet and exercise should have been the last thing on my mind, but as a mum need to be fit and healthy, just as much as you need exercise for the self care that protects mental health! Going to a gym is a lot more difficult though, when you have an entourage of small people! The GREAT thing about TERRAfit is that the workouts are streamed through your laptop/PC/tablet/phone; I do mine whenever I get my hands free and the support the first team I took part with gave me helped me in many more ways than just losing a few pounds of baby weight. The fact that TERRAfit focuses on nutrition and exercise and the support system provided is definitely its point of difference to all the other diet and exercise programmes out there on the market. It has also helped me improve my family’s health, as we are all eating better and enjoying real food!
If you’re thinking about joining or wanting to join a Terrafit team here’s what you’ll need:
1. A desire to form healthy lifestyle habits. Show your commitment with a $38.50 registration fee and clear your pantry of unhealthy foods!
2. Be committed to working out 5 times a week for at least 30 minutes a day (with rest days on Wednesdays and Sundays). Think of a time when you can slot these workouts in before you start.
You can stream the TERRAfit workouts for an additional monthly fee (this is called TERRAfit Advantage and costs $16.50 with your first week free).
You don’t have to do the TERRAfit workouts if you are happy with your existing exercise programme, but I really recommend them for their structure and effectiveness. Exercises are targeted to lean muscle development and weight loss. Workouts employ 4×4 high intensity interval training and believe me, it works! I couldn’t believe the difference in me across just 4 weeks and the essential oils and supplements I used in addition to eating really good, clean food really made me feel great and even improved other things, like my skin!
3. So a willingness to investigate the doTERRA products that can help you in your weightloss/fitness journey is preferable, but there is no obligation! I can help you discover the products that are right for you and introduce you to a way to purchase them economically across the 12-weeks. You get 10 extra points a day for using doTERRA products such as Deep Blue for muscle recovery, Slim and Sassy to support your metabolism and curb cravings, Lemon oil to detoxify, and the Life Long Vitality Pack of supplements to provide you with potent levels of essential nutrients and powerful metabolic factors for optimal health, energy, and longevity.
The registration fee, plus TERRAfit Advantage and an Athlete + Starter Kit costs jst $37.50 for the 12 weeks.
So, have I whet your appetite for change? Are you keen to realise your own transformation?
Check out the progress I made in just 3 weeks of my first challenge at the start of 2016!
Using the TERRAfit nutrition and fitness system I lost 15kgs, learnt how to eat clean and feed my family to boost their health as well and I got back in the ring as a Muay Thai Fighter.

Carrie Harman, TERRAfit Participant, after 1 month in her first 12-week Challenge:
“I have two ‘exciting’ milestones as such…. 1. I am coping so much better with the exercise regime than I did my previous two sprint challenges… and
2. I am getting fuller easier. I am not finishing a whole plate of when my hubby dishes (bigger than I do), and not feeling that I should either. I am avoiding unwise food choices, and often not even tempted by them a lot of the time. I still have a wee way to go, as if I am not organised I find myself struggling on decent snacks – not ‘bad’ ones just not as energy boosting as they could be. I’m so excited to keep pushing myself as we head into month two! I still have things I want to improve and work on (mummy tummy, energy levels, fitness for my 10km run) and am glad to be doing this challenge with the three of you!!”
