Top 3 Successes of Concierge Members

Have you ever felt like you have tried everything and yet you still can’t seem to get the health, fitness, wellness – and really happiness – you want? A lot of the women who come to me feel that way, and I want to share with you that it is possible to put yourself first and feel successful.

Wellness goes beyond just getting to the gym or following a meal plan. With the right tools, accountability, and focusing on what matters, many of my Concierge Members have made accomplishments that are truly life-changing. Here are a few of their top successes:


#1 – Their days are more structured and organized. This means they have time to prioritize their wellness. Instead of feeling scattered and just running from one task to the next, they are able to:

  • • make time to go on walks
  • • plan their meals
  • • go to bed to get 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep
  • • regularly chose self care practices – they know it’s okay to put themselves first because when they do, they show up better for their work, kids, partner, and friends

And bonus: feeling more organized and in control of their day — rather than letting it control them – helps to reduce stress which means better sleep, less hunger and cravings, and balanced hormones.



#2 – They develop a healthier relationship with food. Instead of just counting calories and trying to eat less, they understand that food is fuel. We need it to help us thrive, provide energy, and support our body rather than just jumping on another diet bandwagon. They build healthy habits (not just following a yes/no food list) like knowing when, how, and why we’re eating.

#3 – They finally start to lose weight. After feeling stuck for years and unable to lose weight in a way that is sustainable, the women I’ve worked with have lost over 50 pounds cumulatively. When they prioritize their wellness so that they feel better, the weight is easier to lose and more likely to stay off.



These accomplishments come from building better habits and focusing on small changes that lead to big results. If you want accountability, coaching, and structure to reach your goals, you can learn more about our Concierge program and schedule a free consultation here.

  • The latest from Adrien
Adrien founded Fitness on the Run in 2004 out of her home after a successful career in policy and public affairs communications. After spending 15 years developing her own personal definition of wellness and watching thousands struggle with theirs, in January 2019 Adrien founded Alexandria Wellness, the home for the Concierge Wellness Program and Corporate Wellness with Adrien Cotton. Over the course of 15 years, “FOR” was home to more than 2,000 clients, 30 instructors, and hundreds of inspirational success stories. Adrien is now, more-than-ever, passionate about helping women view their fitness as a journey, not a quick fix. Adrien’s recipe for success herself has evolved from a rigid training plan of sweaty and heart pumping workouts to some days getting in her 10,000 steps, consciously breathing, her 7.5 hours of sleep, and her beloved 5-Minute Flow. Adrien believes the most important ingredient is making small changes for big results, even if it’s one new habit formed each month. Still passionate about fitness, Adrien’s clients appreciate her ability to make sessions seriously challenging without a “beat down,” a healthy mix of strength and metabolic (cardio) work and ultimately helping her clients gain real strength in mind and body. She believes we all benefit from being curious about our bodies and that change, or improvement, is within reach despite what your “inner voice” or others may tell you. Adrien is bubbling with excitement to help women learn the importance of a comprehensive approach to wellness, weight loss, and contentedness with yourself, and that every person has the right to feel good about themselves. Most days, you can find her helping clients with their wellness, listening to success stories, and bragging about her twin 13-year-old children and “fittest man in Alexandria” Bill Cotton. Adrien prides herself on her practice of mindfulness, meditation, and putting it all into perspective.

Alexandria Wellness offers achievable answers for anyone who is tired of chasing fitness and health without a clear plan, someone who has struggled and is not satisfied with their fitness and wellness or someone who is open to maximized healthful longevity and fitness along with healthful weight loss. Adrien and her team offer help with food guidance, body acceptance, sleep and stress issues, and insist you have fun along the way.
