The 60 Day Metabolıc Reset
Level up your fitness and nutrition with Jamie Eason Middleton and Dr. Chelsea Axe — and go from good to great!
Lara Mc Glashan

This Winter, Oxygen and our sister publication Clean Eating are teaming up for the very first time to bring you one of the best get-fit programs to date! After a melding of the minds, we divined that the perfect duo to create this comprehensive plan would be two of the biggest names in the business — longtime Oxygen contributor and trainer Jamie Eason Middleton and renowned nutritionist Dr. Chelsea Axe.

Here is a little about each woman — her background, her goals and her beliefs — as well as some fun facts they dared to share. Join these incredible women on your fitness journey and make this your year to shine!

Two-time cancer survivor. Fitness trainer. Mom. Professional cheerleader/ dancer/figure athlete. Writer. Model. Motivator. Influencer. Jamie Eason Middleton can be classified under all these headings, and she can now add 12-time Oxygen cover model to that impressivelist. “I feel so blessed to have this [cover] opportunity now, at age43, and hope it encourages other women and moms to keep after it, especially those who got a late start with kids,” she says. “Our bodies most definitely change, but we can still be strong and should be proud of what our bodies can do.”

Middleton is two kids deep into family life herself and does her best to maintain a healthy routine — but admits that family life can be chaotic. “I feel like I went from having all the time in the world to prep my meals and work out to barely being able to squeeze in just one or the other,” she says. “I’ve had to come to terms with the fact that my workouts won’t always look like they used to. Sometimes it might be playtime with the kids or a bike ride around the block, dance parties, a swim in our pool, or a little obstacle course I do with the kids with exercises like jumping jacks, squats, push-ups and the like.”

Her adaptability has made Middleton popular with grown-ups, too, and a quick check-in with her Instagram page shows her doing quick and effective workouts, giving helpful exercise tutorials and demonstrating creative ways to get your fit on, such as using her kitchen table to do pull-ups.

BEFORE SHE WAS FIT

Though now a role model for women around the globe, Middleton wasn’t always in shape. In fact, it took a health scare to catapult her into fitness. “In 2005, I found a lump in my breast that ended up being early stage breast cancer,” Middleton says. “The doctor wanted to put me on Tamoxifen and some other drugs, but in lieu of that, I sought help from a nutritionist, Keith Klein. He served as the catalyst for my entire career, taught me about what to eat and what to avoid, but most of all, he taught me to step out and try hard things.”
