Fit Friend Friday: FIT WIT BRITT

She's an entrepreneur, fitness extraodinaire, mother and wife- she's ..... Britt Flippen! Affectionately known as  "Fit with Britt," she has transformed lives with her training, fitness classes and innovative fitness inventions.

I think of her as a "superhero" of the health and fitness industry with contributions that are setting the bar on how fitness should be done in New Orleans.

Read more about my "Fit Friend" and the health and fitness empire she is creating!


"EARN DAT BODY FIT CAMPUS” IS ONE OF THE FASTEST GROWING FITNESS CENTERS IN THE CITY. WHAT DO YOU ATTRIBUTE TO YOUR CENTER’S POPULARITY?

BF: A woman’s touch. My husband started the company by himself years ago but it was missing a woman’s touch.  Our clientele is 95% female, so adding the features to the gym of what women want when they are looking for a fitness center became my vision and to make it manifest. 

WHAT DOES YOUR PROCESS LOOK LIKE TO PREPARE TO TEACH A FITNESS CLASS? 

BF: A few different scenarios make up the process: knowing who I will be teaching (beginners or advanced members), the playlist is KEY (I love to workout to uptempo trap music lol), and trying to give a mixture of exercises to clients that are fun and get results.

WELLNESS COACHES’ IMPACT CAN GO BEYOND PHYSICAL RESULTS AND ALSO HAVE A POSITIVE EFFECT ON MENTAL HEALTH. HOW DO YOU INFUSE INSPIRATION INTO YOU CLASSES TO PROMOTE MENTAL STRENGTH? 

BF: Well to start, we always stretch to gospel music which I feel brings the correct energy to the class because you never know what someone is going through and it eases their minds. Second, I love to play music of empowerment and encouragement. Third, while my clients are working out I walk around screaming motivational words and affirmations to them to continue. 

MOST OF THE TIME YOU ARE THE ONE LEADING CLASSES. WHAT FITNESS ACTIVITIES DO YOU USE FOR MAINTAINING YOUR FITNESS GOALS? 

BF: Honestly I’m a gym rat! I don’t participate in any other physical activities besides weightlifting. That is where I get into my zone , headphones on, and put in work. 

YOU ARE A MULTI-CAREER WOMAN WHO IS A COACH, FITNESS PERSONALITY,BUSINESS OWNER WIFE AND MOTHER. HOW DO YOU MAINTAIN BALANCE?

BF: Girllllll... it’s a struggle, but I love it. It is truly a challenge, but it makes me better. Sometimes I think it can be overwhelming but I also understand that God wouldn’t give me anything that I can’t handle.  Balancing
can be challenging because I have to be attentive to my home, my husband, my child, and the gym without letting any area slack. I don’t get an A+ in all areas at the same time but I try to balance as much as I can

TELL US MORE ABOUT YOUR NEWEST PRODUCT “WORKOUT WIG HAT.”  

BF: The workout wig was created to make women who wear weaves and wigs enjoyable to work out. Because I sweat and work out a lot keeping my hair at its best can be challenging so the Workout Wig  gives you an option to save your wigs that are expensive, And replace it with a wig cap which is inexpensive but stylish. It has also helped patients who suffer from cancer and alopecia with their physical appearance and confidence. It comes in three different colors, can be worn anywhere and it’s very affordable. 

YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND, MOE FLIPPEN ARE #FITCOUPLEGOALS! WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR SUGGESTIONS FOR FUN COUPLE FITNESS OUTINGS TO DO AROUND NEW ORLEANS? 

BF: We host a date night workout for couples at our gym. You can also go bike riding, canoeing in City Park, and just working out with each other to keep each other motivated.
