About Andrea Ferguson
Founder of The F.I.T. LIFE Method | F.I.T. Mindset Mentor and Coach. Andrea spent more than a decade working with thousands of women in the health and fitness arena as a Fitness Instructor, Personal Trainer, Nutritionist, Fitness Studio Owner, Life Coach and Mentor.
She created, built and sold a fitness studio and fitness business. She has designed, created and run many programs, workshops, multi-day events and retreats. She has also developed an entire method and an accompanying 2-year curriculum plus mastery program, to facilitate her current work as a F.I.T. Mindset Mentor and Coach.
While she knows self-discipline, determination, perseverance, commitment and how to act in spite of fear, she also learned through burnout, exhaustion and the fallout that followed, the essential art of surrender. She discovered the joy in simplicity and in having time in her life to simply just be. As a result, she learned how to keep her achiever hustle in check and how to live Fully In Tune with all the beautiful synchronicities and miracles guiding her life, that only became evident when she slowed down enough to notice.
Andrea is now here to support individuals who are ready to ditch the hustle and live Fully In Tune too!
From the Podcast:
TOOL: Choosing to Show Up for the difficult relationships in your life. Use this tool when the SAME relationship challenges keep showing up and you want to get the learning, do the healing and move on.
Your difficult relationships, with your kids, friends and/or family are assignments are happening FOR you, not to you. They are here to help you heal a pattern or stuck emotion so you can move forward and make progress.
Step 1: What's the situation that keeps happening or that you keep attracting that's triggering you?
Recognize that these situations/people/circumstances are here to help you heal. Decide to show up for the assignment by affirming you are ready.
Step 2: Give yourself permission to feel the feelings below the triggers. What are you feeling?
Step 3: Say a prayer for guidance and then open up to receive what comes to you:
Example prayer: "Thank you, Universe, for presenting me with this divine assignment for spiritual growth and healing. I am ready and willing to show up for this assignment with love. I welcome your support. Show me where to go, what to do and what to say. I trust I’m being guided." - Gabriel Bernstein

TOOL: Relationship Perspective Shifter. Use to interpret your circumstances, life events and interactions with people to understand what you are being called to learn so you can evolve and expand into your calling.
The purpose of the lessons that come in the form of life circumstances, life events and people is to likely help you to learn any one of these powerful life lessons:
Once you get the lesson, the next step is to engage with this person from a place of having learned the lesson.
Now it's time to engage from a place of worthiness and connection.
