My beloved business partner and friend WENDY LYNN CHANT, 44, of Lake Mary, passed away on Nov. 19, 2009 in Altamonte Springs, FL after a valiant fight against cancer.
Wendy inspired and motivated me and countless others to always strive to be better. Her discipline and work ethic served an example of what I aspired to achieve. As soon as she climbed to the top of a mountain, she would look around to find another one to climb.
She taught me that it was our duty and obligation to make sure people heard and understood the fat loss and fitness truth. I’m proud to say she was my friend and consider her one of my greatest mentors. Heaven has gained a Fitness Angel, but Earth has lost a Teacher, Coach, and Motivator whose example is what all people should strive for in life.
Here’s her story.
Wendy was born in Woodbury, NJ and moved to Florida in 1986. A certified Master Personal Trainer and Specialist in Performance Nutrition, a former marathon runner and body builder, she took her skills and founded Forever Fit in 1998.
An inspirational speaker, she took her message to those in the Central Florida area through her fitness and nutrition boot camp. She is the author of the New York Times Bestseller – “Crack the Fat Loss Code” and “Conquer the Fat Loss Code” (McGraw-Hill).
Wendy’s latest project Get Lean In 12 played on all her strengths as a visionary. By utilizing video Internet Coaching to spread her life-changing message on a global level, Wendy partnered with Body Transformation Expert Shaun Hadsall to help carry on her legacy and continue to help people Crack The Fat Loss Code for years to come.
Each of these endeavors embodies Wendy’s heartfelt mission- to motivate and help others transform their lives and their health through positive lifestyle changes with an “Anti-Diet”, habit-building approach.
Wendy was predeceased by her father, Charles W. Eisele. She is survived by her daughter, Valerie Rita Chant of Tampa, FL; her “Mom”, Ina Williams of Altamonte Springs, FL; her loving fiancé, Scott Tate of Lake Mary, FL; her mother, Doris Wilson, of Danbridge, TN, her beloved pup, “Rusty”; her brothers, Jeffrey Wilson, Thomas Eisele, Derek Wilson and Charles Eisele; her sisters, Kelly White, Crystal Casey and Gail
Campbell; and by a large family including aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews as well as scores of friends, who all will miss her dearly.
A memorial service to honor Wendy’s life will be held at Tuskawilla Presbyterian Church at 3600 W. SR 426, Oviedo, FL on Saturday, Nov. 28, 2009 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations in her honor may be gifted to the Hospice of the Comforter, 480 W. Central Parkway, Altamonte Springs, FL 32714.
We will miss you dearly Wendy, but we will continue to carry on your name and legacy by helping people Crack The Fat Loss Code with Get Lean In 12!
Blessings and sincerest sympathy to Wendy’s loved ones,
The Get Lean In 12 Team
