Hi! My name is Gretchen Probst. I’m 26 and married to a supportive husband and am a mother to a beautiful daughter born in January of 2007. I live in the Heartland in Southeast Missouri so I’m close to Missouri, Arkansas, Illinois, Tennessee, and Kentucky. I was a band teacher for four years prior to having my baby and now I can concentrate on teaching her and spending time during these precious years.

I’ve tried many types of working out—from sitting on the couch flipping channels, to TaeBo, to Yoga, Pilates, and even a Hula workout. I’ve bought lots of equipment—the ThighMaster, an exercise ball, the Ab Roller, resistance bands, weights, an elliptical machine, and even tried my father-in-law’s Bowflex. I found that these exercises didn’t seem to do much for me.

I found T-Tapp in 1999 while still in college and did the Try Before You Buy exercises with great success (I lost an inch or two off each thigh just doing Awesome Legs). I didn’t get to purchase the workout until 2005, and have been a lot more consistent and the inches have fallen off.

T-Tapp is all I do and am a great example of Less Is More. I used to beat myself up if I didn’t get in a prescribed number of workouts a week, but am now happy to get in 2-3. I also became a huge fan of Basic Workout—great during my daughter’s naps! I’m 5’9” and weigh 145-150 lbs. and am in size 6/8.

After working out, my body craves healthier foods, but I never deprive myself of tasty chocolate. I can usually out-eat anyone else eating with me. I thought my days of a fast metabolism were over once I graduated high school but they’ve reappeared! And if the extra carbs and calories make me sluggish, I just hop up and do some Hoe Downs.

Before I decided to become a trainer, the closest trainers were 7 to 8 hours away. I want to bring T-Tapp to my area because I know that it will help a lot of people in the same way it helped me. I realize that not very many people have heard of T-Tapp around here, and I’m ready to spread the word.

Email me with any questions you may have at emailmrsprobst@yahoo.com—no question is too silly. I’d love to hear from you.
