If you’re reading this right now, chances are, you’ve been a part of the SSBM family long enough to know where I stand on getting results quickly without crazy diets or over-the-top workouts.
(If not, keep reading, and I’ll fill you in!)
But when you’re ready for your next level of results (or if you’ve hit a plateau), it’s easy to think that the only way to break through is to
- Go harder
- For longer…
- Get more restrictive on your diet…
- And double down.
If you’ve ever done that, raise your hand with me.
The burnout is real.
I’ve been there too!
That’s Why I Created SSBM2
(the second edition of the Strong & Sexy Body Method)
SSBM2 is an 8-week cardio and weights training program chock full of HD videos, motivational quotes to keep the vibes high, and over 50 complete workouts, designed to help you smash your next-level goals (or break the plateau that’s been holding you back).
When I designed SSBM2 I had 2 types of fitties in mind:
If either of those are you,
I made SSBM2 especially for you. ❤
So What Makes SSBM2 So Great?

I am so GLAD that I bought Paola's SSBM program
I bought SSBM because I had been doing BBG for over a year and really needed a change in pace and was interested in a lifting program.
I am so GLAD that I bought your program! It really helped increase my motivation, strength and changed my mindset. Before your program, I was dreading my workouts. Now, I am really excited to workout and have seen a lot of physical change! But, the biggest change for me was my mindset. This was the first time it was actually easy to stick with a workout program and not burn out. I feel so much more positive about working out and maintaining a healthy lifestyle!
I loved the layout! It was easy to follow and so helpful to click on the workout videos.
I discovered that I LOVE lifting and have learned so much! I feel great, and can't wait to start the program again.
BUY IT :)
After trying SSBM I rediscovered the love I have for fitness
I had been wanting to switch from cardio to weight training but I had no clue how to begin. I came across SSBM on instagram and loved what I saw, so I decided to give it a try.
This program helped me fall in love with fitness again. Before SSBM, I was stuck doing hours of cardio with little results. I dreaded going to the gym. SSBM gave me the courage and knowledge to being weight training and to not be afraid to go in with the "big guys" at the gym. I looked forward to my workouts every day, and didn't miss a single one! The daily guides kept me accountable and since each one was different, I was excited to see what was on the agenda for the day. When I began to enjoy my workouts again, I found regained the happiness that exercise used to give me. Macro counting was a big wake-up call for me. Although I had thought I was eating clean and healthy, I was eating WAY too many carbs. I find now that I am much more conscious of what I put into my body, and my cravings for carbs and sugar have significantly decreased.
I loved the routines the most. Each one was different, exciting, and gave me new ways to challenge myself. They were so easy to follow and since I was able to watch Paola complete each exercise, I always felt confident that I knew what I was doing. Best of all, the workouts were quick!
After trying SSBM I rediscovered the love I have for fitness. I learned how successful weight training can be, and although it is intimidating at first, it is much more fun than spending hours on the elliptical. I feel amazing now. I am still working on loving my body, but I have many more good days than bad days. I feel stronger and happier. I loved my first round of SSBM that I am starting round 2 next monday!
It is absolutely worth a try! The workouts are fun, engaging, and easy to follow. Paola is there with you every step of the way. She was always there to support me when I struggled and was the first one to cheer on my successes. SSBM helped me become not only become stronger but also happier and more self confident.
I'm basically jumping out of bed to do your guide!
Just sending a check in to let you know that it's going GREAT over here! So some random things happening, I'm basically jumping out of bed to do your guide! It's so fun to me! Every other workout was either so boring or too long. I truly enjoy your guide. As far as my macros go, boy oh boy was I over eating! My fat intake was probably 3 times what I'm eating now at least. Like really at the least! It's only been 3 days of counting macros and I already see a difference. Probably all the bloat vanishing from eating my weight in peanut butter. But regardless I'm liking it so far!
I also realized how much of my macros my protein smoothie was taking up. To be honest, the firat two days I felt completely famished. But I knew it was what I needed to do. Turns out, taking out my protein smoothie and replacing it with real whole food I'm feeling full and satisfied! It was a game changer today eating a meal post workout rather than drinking one.
I am truly so thankful for you. I'm getting the hang of this and can already feel how it'll allow me to live a balanced life and to gain more self confidence. Thank you for that.
I'm seeing amazing results. I've never felt so good in my skin!
I just wanted to reach you to thank you. I've almost completed my first round of S2BM and, in addition to your macro breakdown, I'm seeing amazing results. I've never felt so good in my skin and, to be honest, I never thought I would ever feel this way. I used to think that my body was meant to be skinny, that I wasn't able to put on muscles, that it was just like that and that there was nothing I could do about it. You helped me prove myself wrong and I'm so grateful for this. I can't wait to make further progress, THANK YOU!
I feel like I am getting in a great workout
The program has been amazing thus far. So far, my eating and counting macros are going well. I am going to try and mix up my meals during the week and I have found your food guide to be quite helpful on what I should stick to while shopping at the store. I feel great now so the scale does not matter as much to me.
As far as the exercises go, I love them! Before, when doing more cardio based training, it was so draining and I was extremely fatigued afterward. Now, I feel like I am getting in a great workout and I can feel it in those targeted muscles days after.
Overall, I love your program! Thank you!
I look forward to my workouts every day!
My favorite thing about SSBM is I look forward to my workouts every day. I love the schedule, the exercises and the difficulty-challenging but doable! They are easy to follow and you videos links on “how to” are awesome!
I am down 3 pounds and I can tell I look leaner. I am so much stronger too!! The other day I helped a friend with her daughter because she had thrown her back out and couldn’t move. It was pouring down rain so I grabbed the little girl and her huge/heavy/bulky car seat and ran to the car. It wasn’t even hard. I have a weak upper body and carrying my kids has always tired my arms quickly. This was a huge victory for me to do this with little effort!
I am excited to continue my progress and am loving my journey. I look forward to getting leaner and stronger. Now that I am actually counting my macros correctly I would like to do the proper macro re-evaluation in 3 weeks. Thank you for helping figure this all out!

“I bought SSBM because I Wanted to stay in shape while out of college while getting stronger.
The program helped me vary my workout while still keeping them not too long yet effective. I really liked the layout the best. It was very easy to follow. After trying SSBM I feel great and I can’t wait for SSBM2.
If I could tell someone thinking about buying the program, I would tell them that it is definitely worth the purchase and can help you immensely!”
“I wanted to find a workout regimen that was fun and challenging. But I also wanted to get my macros calculated to lose weight, as well.
SSBM helped give me confidence, balance, a new passion, and puts me in a better mood!
I loved the design of the workouts! I enjoyed the superset format, and the visual appearance of the workouts was impressive.
I discovered a renewed love for exercising and prioritizing my health and happiness. If you’re thinking about getting SSBM… absolutely sign up! Paola is the more encouraging person and cares about each person who joins the SSBM community! You will get results and make a friend along the way.”

THESE are her results after completing my #S2BM workout program and following #MacrosByPao 🙌🏼
“I really enjoyed the Strong & Sexy Body Method!! And I love all of the support from Paola and the S2BM community.
Workout wise, I really like the routines and can feel myself not only getting stronger but also getting excited for my workouts again.
My stomach is definitely my biggest insecurity so seeing such changes after just 12 weeks is amazing!! Thanks for everything!”
s you can see from the stories above, SSBM is more than a workout program. It’s actually a life-changing blueprint that can transform not only your body, but your mindset as well. I designed it to help fitties like you stop seeing exercising as something you “have to do,” and instead look forward to it as something that you want to do for yourself.
It will change you from the inside out: Confidence, energy, feeling great in your own skin… Your lifestyle will change for the better. If you let it.
So how do you know that SSBM2 is right for you?
If you’ve already done the original Strong & Sexy Body Method, SSBM2 is definitely for you. It’s the natural progression from where you are now. ❤
And if you’re not already part of this Fit Fam, here’s how to know if SSBM2 is where YOU belong:
If that’s you… Then chances are, WE’RE for you! ❤
Are You Ready to Bust Through Your Plateau & Join This Fit Fam?
(Because we’re ready for you!)
Still Have Some Questions?
I’ve got answers 😉
Why is SSBM2 8 weeks and not 12 weeks like the original SSBM?
The routines in SSBM2 were designed to be WAY more challenging than the original SSBM in order to accelerate your progress. Training at the intensity of SSBM2 for 12 continued weeks would cause an overtraining to your body, which would hamper your results and make you hit a plateau. (Yes, over-training is a thing!)
Is this program suitable for all type of users from beginners to fitness enthusiasts?
If you haven’t practiced or are new to weight lifting, I recommend starting with my original Strong & Sexy Body Method program because it will give you the right foundation to build your fitness with weight training.
Will I need a gym membership to complete the guide?
Nope! All gym-based exercises have their own at-home alternative version so you can complete the guide at home with no gym membership (or take it on the road, if you’re a traveling fittie!).
What kind of equipment do I need to complete the program?
That will depend on whether you’re planning to complete the program at home or at the gym. If you it’s at home, you will need dumbbells, a kettlebell, a jump rope, a bench, a barbell (optional because you can replace it with dumbbells), a stability ball and a medicine ball. If you’re planning to do the guide at the gym, most of them will have all the listed equipment.
How long do the workouts take?
All the routines will take you approximately 45-60 minutes, depending on your fitness level.
What is Flexible Dieting?
It’s a new way of eating where you count macronutrients instead of calories. Flexible dieting gives you complete control over what you eat. It will change your perception about nutrition since you will mostly stop seeing food as good or bad but as macronutrients only • If you choose to add the 2 Custom Macros Consultations to your SSBM2 Program, I will personally calculate exactly how much protein, carbs and fat you should eat JUST for you.
Do I need to follow Flexible Dieting while doing the program?
If you’re not comfortable with tracking your macronutrient intake, then you don’t have to follow flexible dieting. However, for those people that want to follow this new way of eating to further improve the results, customized macro breakdowns, and macro reassessments based on client’s needs/goals are included in the program.
