SNEAK PEEK FROM OUR LATEST SHOOT!

Yep, we sassed it up this time!

Yep, we sassed it up this time!

Hey HH family, friends, and fans,

I just wanted to share some pics from our latest shoot. Every year in January we start off by doing a shoot for new website content, social media ad campaigns, and to showcase our current physiques.

Every year our image changes with what we are feeling. We know our home base look is fitness but that is a no brainer. We love all types of looks from very conservative to sexy. We love to showcase the different looks in life. Most days, we our in our workout gear with no make up. We are training our clients, working out, or running errands.

This is how I look at 5 am=hat and no make up!

So when we can get our makeup/hair professionally done, then that is what we are going to do for a fun shoot. I don’t mind wearing no make up and getting my nails dirty but I sure love getting dolled up. My inner vixen comes out to play at the shoots. Kind of like an alter ego if you will.

After we get all dolled up then we start with the shoot line up. We had 6-7 looks to shoot that day. It takes a lot of work and effort to coordinate a shoot. You have to make sure it fits about 8 people’s schedule. The hair/make up people, the five of us, and the photographer. Then it is picking out tearsheets and finding outfits.

Then after that, we have to have a meeting to make sure we are all on the same page. An average shoot starts at 9:30 am and ends at 6 pm. That is being in hair/make up for over an hour to eating lunch to shooting. But when the shots come on the photographers screen, all the hard work and effort was worth it!

To get 5 girls to have thier best faces and thier bodies to look awesome for the camera is harder than you think. Every pictures one of us had a goofy face or our body was in the wrong position and was not flattering. Since our ad campaigns our very specific, so are our pictures to get the right shot.

you can never take enough selfie's at a sexy shoot. I never look like this in real life, well, maybe for my husband! ;-)

ARE YOU THE NEXT HEALTHY HOUSEWIVES COVERGIRL?

Are you the next Healthy Housewives covergirl?

HAPPY 2 YEAR ANNIVERSARY HEALTHY HOUSEWIVES!

 Two years ago today I launched the Healthy Housewives brand. Reflecting on the past 2 years, we have changed so much! Our whole team has changed, the look and feel of the covergirl testimonials have changed, and who we are and what we are about has changed. But all for the better!

I have learned so much through the past 2 years that I am proud of how far I have come. It just keeps getting better and better every year. My mission in the beginning was to share my health and fitness knowledge to educate others since I had a fan base when I competed. I got emails from women wanting to know what I eat, what do I do to workout, about products, health, beauty, and my gym fashion. So I decided to create a website that had all things healthy! That is how I came up with Healthy Housewives. Read story here: http://www.healthyhousewives.com/testimonial20.html

My vision not only was to have a website that offered information on all things healthy, but a reality show was what I really set my BIG goals to. Now, I wasn’t sure how and when this was going to happen, but I was going to do all in my power to make it happen. As a fitness trainer for 10 years, I train individuals or groups. But I wanted to reach a larger platform and change the world. That was my ultimate goal.

I have been working day on and day out to make this dream a reality. You will have to stay tuned in 2014 to see if I made that happen. 😀

But the whole point of my brand is to empower people on living an organic holistic lifestyle to the best of their ability. It is to keep the public informed on products, news, and to motivate.

As a gift to you out there, we are going to have an HH fan be our December 2013 covergirl! Yep, that’s right! You could be the next covergirl! You could grace the past covergirls here: http://www.healthyhousewives.com/testimonials.html

Here is the deets:

1. Send your story and 4-5 high resolution image to covergirl@healthyhousewives.com

2. Please include 4-5 pictures. 1 headshot and 3-4 bodyshots. We will pick what bodyshot will be the cover.

3. A 4-5 paragraph story on your health journey and why you should be the next covergirl.

We will feature it Dec 1, 2013.

This is your chance to be on a cover to motivate women like yourself!

Your in Health,

Marzia

What a woman should look like…..

So, I have learned to grow very thick skin since I entered the fitness world and the world of social media. You may be wondering why…and the answer is pretty simple…MEAN PEOPLE SUCK! 

According to the people on social media who hide behind their anime profile picture, women should not have muscles. Or abs. Or workout often. Or eat healthy. Or do anything but have children, have curves, and hips, and thighs, and eat and cook solid good down home food!

So, what is the lesson here? The lesson is that there is no one way a woman should look. A woman, or man for that matter, can be or do anything they want to….and for me, that happens to include a training regimen that leaves me with a six pack. Does this make me any less of a woman? Does it revoke my ability to wear a dress? Of course not. 

I want you to look in the mirror every day and love yourself. I want you to look in the mirror and think, I am beautiful, and smart, and talented. I want you to be able to brush off anyone who tries to bring you down, because you are confident enough in your own skin to know that anything negative anyone has to say to you simply isn’t true. 

I want you to know that one size does not fit all and that you don’t have to look like me, or any of the other Healthy Housewives. Our role is simply to inspire you and motivate you to be the best person you can be inside and out. We want to share with you what works for us in hopes that you will find something that works for you. 

So, what should a woman look like? 

Whatever you see in the mirror each day with love in your heart. Image

HAPPY 1ST ANNIVERSARY HEALTHY HOUSEWIVES

The cast of the Healthy Housewives

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY HEALTHY HOUSEWIVES FAMILY!

Last year on 11/11/11, I launched my brand The Healthy Housewives. I am so proud to see how far we have come in 1 year. The Healthy Housewives mission is to help women live healthier lifestyle through fitness, nutrition, beauty, fashion, home, garden, and pets.

As a life coach and fitness trainer for the past 10 years, I have helped hundreds of women balance their busy lives and be in shape at the same time. Through my passion of helping other women, I was inspired to create The Healthy Housewives. I love helping women transform for the better. Everyone of of my clients and fans inspire me too. I love the synergy we have together. I think women work better in groups. I love having a great support group who you can lean on when you need it and vice versa.

I wake up everyday with the intentions of being a better person and to help build people up mentally and physically. I like to surround myself with like minded peeps too. Each and every Housewife I picked for my project had to fit the part. They had to love health & fitness as much as I do and practice it in everyday life, they had to fit the specialty I was looking for my HH team, and they had to be good honest people with good intentions on wanting to help women lead a healthier lifestyle.

From the time I started the HH brand, it has definitely changed. But changed for the better. I love the 5 women I work with. They are just as pumped about helping other women as I am. We have  ton of stuff in the works for you guys: workout DVD’s, eBooks, giveaways, clothing, eco-friendly products, and of course our Healthy Housewife of the month covergirl. This has been a hit over the course of our year. We love our HH covergirls! Amazing women with amazing stories.

Send us your story! This could be you!

We have been working hard to motivate you and give you our health tips that work for us. We are 6 different women with 6 very different healthy lifestyles. No one’s healthier lifestyle is better than the others. We do what works for us. We have 6 different body types that range from short, tall, athletic, and the model type. But regardless of our body type, we don’t make excuses, we stay in shape. All of us have different health & fitness journey’s. We are here to share them with you.

The cast of the Healthy Housewives

Our specialties:
