My Noisy Cancer Comeback: Running at the Mouth, While Running for My Life
Fitzness Books
October 13, 2020
This is the ultimate tale of hope and perseverance for the cancer community! A fun, funny, and honest insight into one very noisy woman's adventures/misadventures while battling breast cancer which has become the ultimate handbook for thriving while surviving! Fitz's story is proof that anyone can endure hardships better by utilizing perspective, passion, and positivity. Such a gift for anyone going through it. This is a must-have tale of triumph for every patient, survivor, caregiver, and runner. Finding a cancerous lump in her breast seven weeks after a clean mammogram was terrifying. But fitness expert and race announcer Fitz Koehler refused to play the victim or allow cancer to steal her extraordinary career or time with family. In My Noisy Cancer Comeback, Fitz reveals the juicy and gory details of her 16-month battle, all while zigzagging across the United States. Enduring chemotherapy, radiation, and surgeries in the public eye wasn't easy, but it was often downright hilarious!. You'll laugh, cry, wince, and cheer as she chronicles the clash of an avalanche of side effects with 22 major race weekends. Her inspirational tale encompasses the terror of diagnosis, managing her bald head, spectacular stages, parenting with cancer, weight loss, workouts, and more. You'll walk away grittier, more optimistic, and inspired to conquer any obstacle.

YOUR HEALTHY CANCER COMEBACK - Officially on Presale!
Thinkers360
November 14, 2022
I am so proud to share that my two newest books, Your Healthy Cancer Comeback: Sick to Strong and its companion Healthy Cancer Comeback Journal, are officially on presale!
These books were inspired by my personal moments of devastating weakness and inability to function normally. As I strategically orchestrated an incredible return to strength and athleticism after 15 months of chemo, radiation, and surgeries, I ached for those who didn't have the same fitness and nutrition savvy. For those who wouldn't bounce back so quickly or ever - only because they didn't know how.
These books have been vetted and green-lighted by brilliant oncologists, a renowned dietician who was widowed by cancer, and a handful of patients who are already benefitting from this content.
My hope is that all cancer patients and survivors will benefit from this easy-to-understand information to maintain and regain as much health as possible.
If you have friends or family who've endured any type of cancer, I would love for you to share this with them.
The official release date will be sometime in January 2023. All books purchased at Fitzness.com will come signed and include a free gift.

Because being stuck in a body you no longer recognize is harsh. Not being able to do simple tasks because of weakness can be infuriating. I remember days when I couldn't even open a water bottle or my car door. It's time all cancer patients and survivors knew how to maintain and/or regain strength, stamina, and more. #fitzness #yourhealthycancercomeback

The Exact Formula for Weight Loss
Thinkers360
August 19, 2022

Achieving your ideal weight will not only affect the way your body feels, looks, and performs, it will likely bring you closer to your professional goals as well. Dropping excess weight will likely increase your energy, stamina, posture, confidence, and therefore, odds for success. 

Even though weight loss and weight management are often made out to be the most confusing things in the world, the formula is very simple. I say this with a promise that if you follow this exact formula for weight loss, you will never have to diet, suffer, or waste your money buying nonsense like pills, supplements, shakes, or wraps again. Your body needs calories to function. On average, it burns about 10 calories per day per pound of body weight. So, if you weigh 200 pounds, your body will likely burn about 2,000 calories just to maintain its size and normal body function. That’s not counting exercise. It’s just the amount of calories your body will burn doing important things like digesting food, pumping blood, processing oxygen, walking around the house, brushing hair … standard stuff. Every move we make requires energy, and thus calories get burned. If you burn about 2,000 calories a day and you’re not losing weight, we know that you’re also consuming at least 2,000 calories a day too.

3,500 extra calories consumed = one pound gained

3,500 extra calories burned = one pound lost

If you presently weigh 200 pounds but have a healthy or preferred weight of 150 pounds … it’s safe to say that you’ll need to lose 50. If you’d like to weigh 150 pounds, you should eat the proper amount of calories that would sustain a person no bigger than 150 pounds! 150 X 10 calories per day = 1,500. At 200 pounds, you’re consuming at least 2,000 calories per day, way more if you exercise regularly. That’s too much! That’s the reason you’re 50 pounds overweight. You’ve been eating to be a 200-pound person. CONTINUE READING
