    Eat healthy. Exercise. Be happy. It sounds easy enough, so why is it so difficult? Because as millions of women know, it’s not easy. There are challenges and obstacles, and health programs are not one size fits all.

    Sohee Lee understands, because she’s faced the challenges and overcome them. As a trainer, presenter, and author, she’s shared her experiences and helped others establish healthy relationships with food and exercise for long-term results.

    In the e-book Eat. Lift. Thrive. she empowers you with tools and strategies to make positive changes. You will learn how to identify issues that are holding you or your clients back, and you will learn what you can do to get back on track. You’ll find motivation, exercise, and advice. And you’ll learn how to  
    • incorporate Lee’s Living Lean Guidelines to make your diet work around your life, rather than the other way around;
    • perform her Primary Strength Movements and integrate them into an effective workout program; and
    • adjust your routine to maintain the results you’ve achieved.
    Eat. Lift. Thrive. also provides a structured, easy-to-follow 12-week training program. The program can be scaled according training experience, time commitment, and goals; it’s completely customizable to ensure lasting changes.  

    This e-book is designed to be different. By the time you’re finished, you’ll be an expert at moderation and will say goodbye to extremes in dieting. Certified professionals can confidently apply the concepts to their clientele and, with the CE exam, pursue continuing education credits in the process!
