Enjoy what happy clients have to say about working with Coach Linda of Fit Me Healthy Coaching!
Since training with Master Trainer Linda, I lost 57 inches or more! I obviously gained much muscle tone, my posture improved, my energy level good, and pain that I had in my feet and calves was gone!
Linda Osmond has been a huge part of my past success and continues to be so in the preparation for the 2014 60 Day Challenge. Having a good trainer is crucial, especially for those who need to make adaptations for better form. Her encouraging, patient, and knowledgeable help in the MORE class she taught, gave me a much better foundation to continue on my own… I could contact her for advice on form or which new DVD might suit my needs best. She always came through with what I needed.
Yesterday, I had a coaching session with Linda to prepare for the Challenge. It was excellent, and my goals were completely met. We went over a few tweaks that seemed appropriate (for me). I could tell, from how I could really feel the positions and movements that they will help me better achieve my goals. I highly recommend Linda Osmond as a T-Tapp Trainer, whether you are first beginning the journey of T-Tapp or are more experienced and want help in perfecting your form and technique.

I am 55 years old and have a history of Rheumatoid Arthritis that I control with diet (and NO medications!). I started T-Tapp with Linda Osmond when she was still in training and found it manageable for me – no high impact, and I could wrap my head around it. The first result I noticed was that my balance got so much better. It was great to be able to hike and bike with the new strength that I had gained. I started personal training sessions with Linda again this year. I now work on Senior Fit, which is even more manageable than the Basic Workout Plus which I did before. I especially appreciate that the exercises are anti-inflammatory, and I found that I am able to avoid knee pain in keeping my weight in my heels (as Linda tweaked for me).
I tried to imitate the exercises from the DVD, but I find that it makes a huge difference when Linda corrects my posture and motivates me. I can only recommend working with her. Even my athletic daughters are supporting me in this. They decided to pay for some of my lessons!

Linda is a patient and creative teacher, who customizes her sessions to the needs of the client. I’m an experienced (five years) T-Tapper who has suffered occasional setbacks due to joint problems and chronic disease. I wanted to improve the effectiveness of what I was already doing and develop a strategy for times when I might need to rehabilitate myself or compensate for physical weaknesses. Linda and I spent four Skype sessions together over four weeks. She evaluated my technique and told me what I was doing right, what I could improve or customize, and even a few places where I was trying too hard due to misunderstandings of the DVDs and book.
I’m following Linda’s instructions ever since we worked together, and my workouts have been revolutionized. Our sessions were challenging. I could feel myself engaging my muscles more. She’s given me enough ideas to keep me busy applying them for years, which is how long I plan on T-Tapping.

Linda, thank you for taking the time to help me get a good healthy start on the T-Tapp 60 day challenge. The Skype session we had was so helpful. Learning that there is a physical/biological reason to my klutziness and that I can get rid of it was a huge sign of hope for me. I really can’t tell you how thrilled I was. I’ve implemented the (supplement) you recommended. It feels good to know I’m getting my body moving in the right direction.
I also greatly appreciate the help picking out a new T-Tapp DVD. It’s overwhelming to look at the large selection and not know what the best next step is for yourself. After talking with you I was confident that this DVD was the right one for me and it was. I’m loving it! Since starting the challenge (24 days ago) I’ve lost 9 inches. I can’t wait to see the total loss.
Thanks so much for your help. I look forward to working with you again soon.

T-Tapp entered my life in 2015….my abs, hips, and thighs were not budging. I joined the 2016 T-Tapp Challenge, purchased a bunch of different workouts and still thinking I could be more efficient, I decided to try working with a trainer/coach. After checking out quite a few on the T-Tapp website, I chose to work with Master Trainer, Linda Osmond. In just a short thirty minute introductory session, primarily working on my stance, I started feeling more activation in my hips, made a plan to improve my workouts, and purchased (2 specifically recommended workouts) … to address my particular muscle imbalance issues, and (I was to) keep working on my stance.
Linda & I worked well together and I also continue with her coaching program. Per Linda’s suggestions, I took measurements to assess the effects of what I was learning from her. Linda’s coaching and insight was so helpful, I knew my numbers were going to change! In 9 days, my abdomen and waist EACH dropped almost 2″! Fantastic, YeeeHahhh!! The detailed focus during our Skype sessions have also identified movements where I was working too hard, for instance (I’m now) lifting my ribs (properly) and allowing my shoulders to (properly) activate without the tension I was producing that exhausted me. Lots of shrugs throughout the day, practice my stance while standing, sitting, and on my back and just keep fine tuning.
Mahalo for sharing your learnings, Teresa Tapp, and the training program that results in awesome trainers and coaches like Linda!

After purchasing my T-Tapp videos and attempting to apply the techniques and instructions of T-Tapp as I would any other workout, I signed up with Linda for some one-on-one Skype sessions. She was so helpful and had so much knowledge that went beyond my physical needs. I had gotten into a rut after shoulder surgery, an ongoing financial issue (which was very stressful), and I just had not given myself or my health top priority. Through our initial conversation, I discovered that Linda could help me with not only T-Tapp training, but also with my digestion, cleansing and overall wellness.
Once Linda interviewed me and asked me a series of questions, she was able to start me at point A – a wellness plan – then a protocol that would aid me in getting back my health – and eventually, bringing my body into alignment and functioning the way it was created. I’ve already seen amazing results with her help. I’m still on my journey, but I am more hopeful and excited about being empowered to be a “long distance runner” rather than “sprinting” through this training process.

I’ve known Linda Osmond for over five years now, and I have come to respect her for her wide knowledge in nutrition, health, physical fitness, and alternative medicine. She is a person I never hesitate to go to with any question I have related to these subjects. Her gentle and caring spirit make her approachable and so valuable. Linda is a blessing to our community!
Betty M., IL
I have thrown away 2 pair of jeans that no longer fit, even with a belt. … Once again thank you for doing (these classes)! My daughter, who has been doing the Basic (workout) with me for about 3 weeks now, is excited about exercise for the first time in years. … She is wearing clothes she has not been able to fit into since (her accident) last September. And she loves that this exercise does not torque her neck or mess up her back. She was not able to continue Tae Kwon Do after her concussion, (but can do T-Tapp!).
Cathy F, IL (and daughter, Liz F, 60-Day Challenge Winner!)
Thank you. I applied your recommendations and Wow. It gave me a totally different feel.
I am glad I had a consultation with Linda. It was good to meet her before signing up for a block of training sessions. Based on our consultation, I have confidence that Linda can support me with my T-Tapp goals. She was generous with her knowledge, time and support, and I learned a lot!

Entering the 60-Day Challenge, I had the added benefit of my wife being a Master T-Tapp Trainer and health coach. She helped me to understand the correct T-Tapp form and to clarify or tweak some of the movements for me. She also acted as my holistic health coach, helping me to identify what nutritional and lifestyle changes would best help me to accomplish my health goals. She told me that I had insulin resistance for a number of years and that I was pretty much pre-diabetic, which I realize now was also negatively affecting how I felt. Amazingly, I was able to reverse the insulin resistance in just 60 days, too, with individualized food choices, targeted nutrition, stress management, T-Tapp movement, and lifestyle changes only — no medications or permanent supplements to be on! My fasting blood sugar had been over 140 for quite some time, but now the fasting sugars are consistently in the 70’s or low 80’s, right where they should be. I am also on high blood pressure medication and have been for years, but I have had to stop taking the medicine sometimes because my blood pressure has been very close to normal during the challenge without medication. Probably due to the lower blood pressure and extra movement, I have also had less swelling (edema) in my legs, and probably less inflammation overall. I lost over 33″ and 20 lbs on this Challenge!

Please know how crucial your (explanation and education leading to my) diagnosis of hyper-flexibility was (to my healing). I also am much more aware … catching myself with my shoulders hunched and locking my lats. Our time together was very valuable!
Karen R., PA
Linda, I would like you and others to know that these that you helped me with were helpful for me:
– Being able to get help at such short notice
– That the help was personalised according to my own individual problems areas, weaknesses and time restrains
– To be able to get such personalised help even though we live half a world away with no local T-Tapp support
– That I could get help for my husband also according to his needs, too
– Help with scheduling and what workouts to do and when to do them. Having confirmation that it’s ok to ‘freestyle’ between workouts and enjoy the variety. And also to realise that Senior Fit plus the new floor dvd can be particularly helpful as I work on spinal alignment
– Helping me to understand on days and off days workout
Oh. My. Goodness. I had a Skype training session with Linda Osmond today and holy cow….every muscle in my body feels it. Wow! 🙂
Krista P., LA
I am writing to put in a good word for my T-Tapp coach, Linda Osmond. She has done a superb job in explaining all the routines/sequences clearly. She had an amazing eye for detail and I would watch her often squint and look quickly around to see if everyone was doing it right. If not, she would explain how to do it right or better and then if someone still didn’t quite get it, she would take more time after the session with them. She was great at remembering names and more importantly, which persons had health or physical limitations. She would kindly tell them a way to adjust the routine or position for their specific needs.
She was consistent and persistent with not only us, but herself. I remember one week…she was in some pain but still coached us just the same, doing all the moves with us, setting a great example for us all.
I appreciate how she truly had a heart for us and a true desire to see us each succeed and feel better. I wish and hope that everyone who tries out T-Tapp could have the same great experience that I had.

Because I am a very independent …, it took me some time to consider signing up for a Skype training session with Linda. I am VERY glad that I did. She was responsive to my initial inquiries.
I realized that some of the positions I was asked to do were likely affected by my corrective scoliosis surgery–hence, my spine 3/4 fused. When Linda & I met for Skype, she was prepared, prompt, had ALL SORTS of notes both from our emails, and she even contacted Teresa Tapp directly to help get the best advice for my specific body. This made me feel cared about, which made all the difference to a person pretty darn discouraged with her efforts with weight loss, etc.
She also listened first. She could look objectively at my body, position, etc., have me try different things and we could evaluate on the spot. We’ve altered my approach so my knees are feeling fine again. If you’re considering a training session, just do it.
Linda has recommended a different workout, more targeted for me and I’m eager to see it come in the mail this week, so I can get better results!
I was doing BWO+ (Basic Workout Plus) for months, but was not losing inches. I contacted Linda for help. Her recommendations helped me get the success I was looking for. I lost 13 inches in 3 weeks! I am so thrilled with my success, that I just had to share. Linda is very easy to talk to and is a great listener. I have done the (new) workout (she recommended). I’m sure (her specific dietary advice) has helped a lot since I don’t feel so bloated all the time. The (recommended supplement) is such a help to me too. I look forward to working with her until all of my goals are met.

I wanted to take a moment and thank you for all your help thus far. Your attention to detail and ability to listen to my needs is wonderful. I would have never known just how complex each movement is. There is still so much for me to learn and I am glad you are on the journey with me. I look forward to further deepening my knowledge of how to make this the most effective workout ever and finally get the results I want without injuring myself or pushing myself to ridiculous extremes as in other workout programs in the past. Thank you again!
Monika G., CA
During my session with Linda, she helped me break down which T-Tapp workouts would be best for my body type and (discussed) how to incorporate them into my workout schedule. She also helped me so much with body alignment during our session; as a personal trainer and avid exerciser, I feel like have a good understanding of my body. She asked some specific questions and made some connections about my daily habits that were creating tightness in my shoulders. She also gave me some things to work on to relieve this tightness. I got so much out of our time together and am so glad I reached out to her for support!
Brooke T., AR
Linda, I found you to be a delight. I found that I was making several mistakes. I needed the correction. Our Skype session was very informative and helpful. Thank you so much for helping me. You are very intelligent on the principles of T-Tapp. I appreciate everything you have done for me. I enjoyed our conversation.
Linda was such an encouragement to me when I didn’t see the results I’d hoped for after weeks of working out. She was able to see the slight improvements in areas that I hadn’t noticed and also gave me some great tips for form and muscle activation in addition to recommending other t-tapp videos as I continue to strive for better health and stronger/leaner body. I am implementing the form tips and hope to see more improvements as a result of her help and encouragement.
I participated in an online group program by Linda, to go over form, any questions we had, and to be informed about food-related needs we had that Linda could help us with. We also had a one-on-one personal training as part of the package.
I personally benefited greatly from the group. Having done TTapp on and off for several years, almost exclusively HHMM, I wasn’t learning about new form, tips, etc. Every online meeting I was able to incorporate several new tips in my TTapp time. And from my personal training time–I came away with a page of form adjustments that updated form, more correct moves for my torso type, and simply corrections to form I wasn’t aware I was doing. The changes Linda made greatly increased my activation of lats and generally stepped up my game quite a bit. She also was able to help me nutritionally with a kidney problem I have.
Highly recommend her programs to anyone who wants to progress in TTapp. She is a master trainer and her results certainly show it. Very happy!
P.S. The tips Linda gave me recently to use on my 12-day road trip allowed me to lose 1.5 inches around my lower abs!
