Marci's Circle

The Place to be for Fun and Sustainable Fitness

Why Marci's Circle...

Each newsletter in Marci's Circle has 3 components (Workout, Nutrition Tips, and Education) which will be described below. First I want to tell you about the introduction that is also included each and every week.

Our mission is to help you create a FUN & SUSTAINABLE lifestyle by providing education that is not only physical but that is also focused on the emotional/mental aspect of health.

This introduction portion of each newsletter will give you a clear perspective on what we’re going to focus on and how it fits into our theme each month. You’ll find yourself feeling excited as you anticipate each Saturday morning. Get ready to feel energized and ready to take on the new week with power. Continuing to stay connected and apply this topics at a level and pace that works for you is what ensures sustainability.

This portion is created to keep your exercise regimen fun and exciting and NEVER having to stare at the gym and wonder what to do. Real progress comes from changing things up and challenging your body with new formats and movements that require you to increase your abilities. The workouts in Marci’s Circle will always be different and challenging but completely tailored to what you members ask for. They’ll help you think outside the box and take you back to the basics of functional movement to prevent injury, increase stamina, and improve cardiovascular health too. At Marci Barker Fitness have a combined history of exercise experience of over 30 years! Some of the exercise formats you can plan to see are yoga, aerobics, tabata, weight training, functional lifts, HIIT, pilates, cross training, and so much more.

Nutrition Tips:
Creating a Fun & Sustainable lifestyle includes increasing your knowledge of food and applying it to your current situations. All of us go through periods of being lazy or “falling off the wagon” but not anymore. As you learn what is in the food around you and how it works with the body you are less likely to engage in habits of your old you. Our nutrition tips are based on scientific research and are designed to help you navigate how it applies to you and your family. In other words, we dumb it down so we can all understand the true WHY behind the food choices we make.

Education and Motivation:
This section of each newsletter comes what you members need at the moment. It’s completely based on the season and what we’re experiencing in our lives. Typically this section is where we dive into the mental and emotional side of things pretty heavily. You get to hear deep personal stories from each trainer that encourages you to do the same in your own life. Often times we can feel alone if we don’t reach out and seek understanding. Marci’s Circle is the place we can all come back and know we’re not doing this alone. Education ranges from experience of successful members, important messages from Marci Barker Fitness, special promotions about upcoming challenges, or information from experts in the health and wellness field. Overall this section makes you want to keep going! Weekly motivation is what propels our progress the following week.
Also, as a member of Marci's Circle you get discounts on just about everything!

Meal Plan Database
The MPD is an amazing resource the trainers have compiled. There are nearly 100 different recipes you can access to improve your menu options at home. They’re tasty, easy to make, don’t require crazy ingredients, and best of all the macros are all measured already. When we add new recipes you get immediate access to those as well. Put the “What’s for dinner?” question to death!

Protein Power Class
Are you wondering how much protein you need in order to thrive and reach your goals. Do you wonder if a plant based diet is the way for you to go? We break it all down in this Protein Power class and it’s available at all times for you to refer back to. You’ll learn which protein sources are the best for you and how to function well by what you eat.

The Bread Spectrum Class
Have you ever heard of someone being “afraid of carbs”? It’s because they simply don’t understand which carbohydrates are harmful and which ones are necessary for growth. This Private video training walks you through 20 different bread or flour based items and breaks them down according to least effective for health and most important. You’ll find yourself making the best bread choices easily and without spending so much time in the isles of the grocery store!

Foam Rolling Course
Foam Rolling has been around for years but not many people know the importance of benefits of foam rolling regularly. Learn how to care for your body with SMR (self myofascial release) through our 20 simple to follow videos. They’ll walk you through the do’s and don’ts as well as simplify each part of the body for you. You’ll love how relaxing it can be after just one session. Start with just one body part or follow them through a 50 minute progression for an outstanding foam rolling session.

Continuous Access to Our Private FB Group
The Private FB group is our support group where all active challengers communicate and keep each other motivated and encouraged to succeed. It’s also where the trainers spend a lot of time doing live videos and answering the questions that you have. A free bonus all Marci's Circle members get is to stay in this group even if you are not currently in a challenge.

5th Saturday Bonuses
These are my favorite part! I LOVE Marci’s Circle and 5th Saturday bonuses are the way I show that love through gifts. When there is a 5th Saturday in the month, I send out special gifts in the mail to those who are engaged in the newsletters and offer me feedback to improving Marci’s Circle. Check the page below to see what kind of gifts we’ve sent out before. : )

Marci's Circle is a whole 'nother ball game for you to progress in your health and fitness journey. While Marci's signature challenges are primarily focused on accountability and weekly focuses, Marci's Circle is constantly providing you with new material to up your game wherever possible.

Each week you’ll hear from a different trainer of Marci Barker Fitness, making Marci’s Circle a fantastic place to get exactly what you need and in a variety of ways. We dive deep into exercise but emotional and mental topics as well. Not to mention, members of Marci's Circle always come first! It's like having 4 personal trainers in your back pocket!

You'll get all the tools you need to make fitness FUN. When you enjoy your progress it becomes SUSTAINABLE and you will feel great every single day of your life.

I love being apart of Marci's Circle. It just gives me that little extra. The workouts are always great and a nice change to my routine. Also it gives you more great recipes that you can't get in the database. And last but not least I love the message each one has. I'm not always in challenges but getting that email every Saturday is the boost I need each week to continue on with my journey.

I love Marci's Circle because it's like having Marci and her other awesome personal trainers in your back pocket! It helps keep me more accountable. The weekly emails have great information, ranging from self care to workout safety and more! The recipes are delicious, the workouts allow me to add variation to my routine, and the bonus information is always helpful!

I always get a lot of good information / education on various topics from Marci's Circle. For example one week Marci's Circle was all about shoulders and exercises specifically for shoulders. It was awesome because I've had two shoulder surgeries on my right shoulder. I love the recipes and special thoughts and messages in MC. The 5th Saturday of the month has a special surprise bonus!
