What We're Saying
After meeting Michelle Steinke Baumgard on social media, I began following her and her amazing story. She lost her first husband in a horrible plane crash and had two small children. Giving up her corporate high paying job that brought her no joy, she decided to get into shape and, by working out, subduing her grief. Through that portion of her life, she created One Fit Widow where she could help other women (and men) who had lost their spouses. She decided to write a book, leading others to healing and optimal health following loss. She knew I was a professional editor/proofreader and copywriter, and reached out when she completed her manuscript. She wanted me to help her write the synopsis. In the meantime, she had moved to Montana and actually flew into Phoenix so we could work together for a week and get it right the first time. Well, through another connection of hers, she was picked up by Harper Collins and has a wonderful bestselling book!!! She married again, and now has a blended family with her wonderful husband, Keith and his two children. Check out her websites…they are so specialized and offer wonderful options for healthy living, getting and staying in shape and, of course, how to deal with grief.
About a year ago, I told my team I wanted to walk away from our wildly successful six-week challenges and instead build the best virtual wellness platform on the planet. What we spent a year developing and planning is our new Quest Wellness Program.
I wanted a one-stop-shop for all the things people need to create the healthiest and strongest lifestyle in all facets. Quest has everything from fitness to nutrition to mindset and so much more. Our program has a coach and a plan for every wellness need – I am so proud of this program and can’t wait to work with you!

BEST-SELLING FIVE PILLARS OF WELLNESS PROGRAM
Maybe for you, it’s a walk, a swim, a Zumba class, yoga, or just cleaning about the house. You want to know the truth, your body does not care how you move, just that you DO MOVE. We overthink movement, and that is often the demise of our motivation to keep going. We are told we have to move a certain way, and we burn out and stop growing. Our program offers countless ways for you to start moving from simple walking programs, yoga, coach workouts, and so much more. No excuses, we will help you move.
It’s time you learn to eat in a way that NOURISHES your body, your cells, and your best health. Don’t focus on scale numbers but rather look at your food as a chance to improve your health with every single bite you take. Our Quest program will help you meal plan, learn about food, and rediscover your love of food.
Often a missing comment to most health programs, nature is critical to your mood, your energy, even your sleep cycles. Quest offers education, challenges, and meet-ups to help you get back outside for your mental, emotional, and physical health.
“Rule your mind, or it will rule you” ~Buddha.
Probably the most critical part of living a healthy life is addressing your mind in a myriad of ways. Looking into your self-sabotaging habits, asking why you do the things you do, and learning new practices is critical to LONG-TERM success that sticks, not just quick fixes that don’t. We also want you to meditate, sleep better, and talk to yourself with more grace as part of our mindfulness pillar in our Quest Wellness Program. Our team is hyper-focused on helping you incorporate mindfulness into all that you are.
You are the sum of the people you spend the most time around, so make sure you pick wisely. Your community does matter for your goals, your happiness, and even your mental well-being. You need to surround yourself with people who inspire you, who lift you and help you become a better, stronger, more complete version of yourself. Upgrade your company often to live your best life today and in the future. Our Quest program offers the best community around. Our clients rave about the support of not only the coaches but also the other clients who are non-judgemental and so uplifting!!

You can take anyone into the gym and motivate them to live fit for a day, but if you take them into nature, you can inspire them for life! That’s the motto of Michelle Steinke-Baumgard and Keith Baumgard from My1FitLife. Six years ago, Michelle and Keith joined together and started what has become much more than just a fitness company; they have created a tribe, a community and a feeling that inspires you long after you leave their retreats. Michelle and Keith take fitness up a notch and remind you that living fit is not about making your body smaller, but instead, fitness is about making your life BIGGER!!! When you come for a retreat with My1FitLife you will accomplish big things; you will learn to be brave, to explore, to stretch your boundaries and to live your life to the fullest. https://my1fitlifeadventures.com/
