What Clients Say
"Before Bari-Fit I struggled to get my weight below 125. I was killing myself with cardio in the gym. Tosha setup my nutrition plan, effective cardio and a killer weight routine and the weight melted off! I had a ton of energy and felt like I could conquer the world. I recently placed 7th in the World's Perfect Woman Pageant, a feat I never could have accomplished without Bari-Fit."
"After my surgery I felt lost, confused and unsure of how to start my new life. Bari-Fit gave me the guidance, structure and focus I needed. Tosha talked to me about my personal struggles and what I wanted to achieve. She then gave me the way to do it with the proper nutrition and fitness guidelines designed specifically for me and my goals. Without Tosha and Bari-Fit, I do not think I would have reached my goal weight."
"I got tired of guessing what to eat and how to exercise…..and guessing wrong. My biggest worry was damaging my metabolism after getting a second chance!"
"After my surgery and after that initial big weight loss from the honeymoon phase, I knew that I wanted more. I needed some guidance on what my diet should look like and I wanted to get my body to be very healthy. After years of neglect with a sedentary lifestyle, I wanted to get in shape for the first time in my life. I was in one of the boards and a sleeve friend mentioned BariFit. I immediately went to the page and found that it was exactly what was missing for my post sleeve life. I signed up for a free consultation. After one conversation with Tosha, I immediately signed up for the platinum plan. I was paying more monthly for a personal trainer who didn't understand bariatrics. With BariFit, I got a coach who cares about me DAILY, who gives me direction, who kicks my butt when I get down on myself. Tosha is a realist. She gets it. She has been there. She's not some trainer who has always been fit. She knows how hard it is and she knows how bariatric patients see themselves and how easily we can give up on this new life. Bari-Fit just keeps getting better every month. Tosha's excitement about the growth of the company is wonderful and you can't wait to see what high class product she will come out with next. She is always learning and growing so that she can be the best coach for us. She is the real deal."
"Ever since the birth of my baby in 1987 I have struggled with my weight. I have done the yo-yo thing gaining and losing weight, trying just about every diet and exercise gimmick out there. As the weight piled on and my back and knee started to give me issues I was getting fed up. When I couldn’t get control of my skyrocketing blood pressure I had finally had enough. It was time to take control of my life and get healthy. The funny part of it is , the whole surgery idea started out as wanting a breast reduction to take the stress from my back. Hubby wasn’t happy about that so I figured hey, I may as well just lose the weight all over and get healthy. I had my RNY surgery on 9/14/15 and my heaviest weight was 222, surgery weight was 212. While home recovering I was reading things on the internet, Facebook, and anywhere else I could find to give me info I would need to help me on my new journey. There are so many places out there my head was spinning. When someone on FB suggested I friend Tosha Knopp and check out Bari-Fit I figured why not, what do I have to lose? That was the best decision ever! I was so intimidated and confused on proper nutrition and working out I had no idea what I was doing. I signed up for the Gold Package on Bari-Fit and was so anxious to get started. The tools and coaching I have received from Tosha and team Bari-Fit are priceless. They have walked in our shoes and know the struggles of a bariatric patient, which is the largest part of what made up my mind. The changes in my body and my overall well-being have been phenomenal since starting on my plan. Is the gym still intimidating? Sure some days it is but I just hold my head high and walk in with confidence knowing Tosha has given me the tools to get the job done. The pictures speak for themselves but my body fat percentage has dropped from 34.5 to 31.2 in just a few short months of working with the Bari-Fit team! My current weight is 130 and I’m only 5 lbs from my goal weight of 125! Never did I think I’d be in as good of shape as I am now! At age 48 that’s quite a feat for me. I’m going to my 30 year class reunion in two weeks and I’m going to rock it! I wish I had a hidden camera to go back and watch later all the reactions as they see me walk in that room in the best shape of my life! If you are on the fence about joining team Bari-Fit, don’t wait! The sooner you get started the sooner you will be on that path to healthier life!"
"I have tried diet after diet, and each attempt and fail brought on more and more weight gain. My blood pressure was climbing, my aortic valve was enlarged and I have a benign right branch bundle block. My cardiologist suggested I consider weight loss surgery. Once I came to grips with the fact that I needed help losing the weight I never looked back. I was referred to Bari-Fit from my sister, who is also a bariatric client and started the program before I had surgery and what a fantastic decision that was! I absorbed every ounce of information I could learn and that would set me up for success. I feel absolutely incredible with the help of Coach Tosha and I finally have my life back! Bari-Fit is my saving grace. Thank you Tosha….OMG I am tearing up writing this…"
"Tosha has been my ROCK! Not only has she taught me how to adopt a new healthy lifestyle without severe deprivation and restriction. She has became a close friend and has helped me through more than just this weight loss journey."
"I needed to accomplish a few things before I could take the next step to become healthy. In order for my insurance to cover the cost of bariatric surgery I had to lose 20 pounds within a short period of time. The cardio and dieting I was attempting on my own was not working and I needed help fast. Tosha came at the recommendation of a close friend; with her help I was able to hit 219.8. I was so excited to get to the weight I needed for the insurance approval and when I messaged Tosha she said to get my butt up to my nutritionists office and weigh in so it could be submitted to the insurance! Tosha helped me stay focused on my health and push through the hard times. She replied to endless text messages and phone calls from me with all the right words or wisdom. Bari-Fit is an amazing resource for bariatric patients or those who just want to lose weight."
"I could not be more thankful for Tosha and the Bari-Fit team. I joined her program a few months after surgery due to my slow weight loss after surgery arising from PCOS and Diabetes. Tosha, her coaches, and client only group members have been excellent at tailoring the program to my needs and requirements as well as being patient and adapting things to work with injuries and life's curveballs. I am so thankful for Tosha and the program she has created. Being part of Bari-Fit is the best thing I could have done for myself post surgery."
"Around 6 months after bariatric surgery I joined Bari-Fit at the encouragement of a friend. I followed the program very closely and I lost 100 pounds within a year post surgery. I went on to lose an additional 15 pounds shortly after my 1 year check-up. On June 16, 2016 I had a tummy tuck and plan to do a breast augmentation sometime in 2017. I really enjoy the support that is given to me by the team at Bari-Fit. The support group and coaches are not just "any group on Facebook." They understand the process weight loss surgery patients go through as they are all weight loss surgery patients themselves. We have all been down the same road and this is what makes this company special."
"I am Laurie Belville and I had the sleeve on June 2 , 2015 in Salt Lake City, Utah by Dr. Cottam. I struggled my whole life with being overweight and every diet that came along that I could afford. As I got older and more and more health issues slowed me down to literally a crawl, my doc advised me of weightloss surgery. I fought the idea for quite some time until one day she just told me that I couldn't do it on my own. My health had gotten worse, my weight had topped out at 320 lbs. and I believed that I was destined to be overweight. On my next visit, it was my first of four that I needed to get the process going. I continued to second guess the idea but I knew I had to do something ! I wanted to enjoy my life! It seemed like time flew and I had a surgery ! I was excited but very nervous. I On the day of my surgery I weighed 316 lbs. I had lost only 4 lbs. in 6 months while trying to excercise and logging what I ate. I knew on June 2, 2015 that I needed this for me! I went through surgery great and recovery was my time of new foods and cooking. I look forward to everyday ! It has been 1 1/2 years and I weigh 186 lbs. and my health is better than it has been in years! Finding Bari-Fit has been a blessing ! Taking health to the next level and beyond!"
"Tosha contacted me after I filled out the consult. She answered all my questions & made me comfortable. She helped me get out of my stall I was in for 3 weeks just be changing the amount of food I eat. I recommend Bari-fit to anyone!!!"
