Beth – A TOTAL Transformation
Beth has been a member at my studio for a long time. Beth has had a TOTAL transformation.
It’s a lot more than just weight and body image. It’s her love for fitness and how it has become a pillar in her life. Exercise, strength, eating healthy keep her grounded and give her the fuel for everything else she does.
Beth has lost over 140 pounds total. But more importantly, she has kept it off. In fact, she continues to improve upon herself. I think that is something a lot of women are missing. Once they find some success, they either stop exercising altogether… or they stop trying to progress.
Beth is a great example of always trying to be stronger than yesterday and how that makes burning fat and keeping it off easy.
Plus she shows that even if you hate fitness now, if you stick with it, you’ll start to LOVE it.
Alex – Pure Strength
Alex was a member of one of my satellite boot camp locations. She was a member and I didn’t know her for a long time.
Yet, when she started taking some advanced kettlebell and weight classes, that’s when I met her. She has always been strong, but through her hard work, we took her strength to the next level.
Her latest accomplishment was finishing top 30 in the nation in a Strong First kettlebell strength competition.
She shows that once you fall in love with movement, fitness, and strength… nothing can hold you back. She’s an amazing woman!
Julie – Weight Loss, Health, Determination
Julie was a huge transformation. She lost over 40 pounds in only a few months. Normally I don’t like fast weight loss like that. It’s typically too hard to maintain… but Julie proves it can be done.
The difference was she committed to eating healthy and consistent exercise. And nothing was going to get in her way. Not even temptation.
She also had huge determination. She committed to doing things like pullups and succeeded.
I just saw her again after a year and a half and she still looks great. She has still be living her fitness and being healthy.
Julie proves that if you really want it bad enough… with consistency nothing can hold you back.
Kim – Weight Loss & Strength!
Kim combines both a weight loss transformation and a serious strength transformation. She lost somewhere in the 30 pound range and that’s when things really got interesting.
Her new confidence lead her to kettlebells and she became a true kettlebellista badass.
She moves all over the country with her husband (who’s in the military) and no matter where she is (Maine currently)… she lives her fitness.
She now has her own health blog and takes fitness seminars to learn more even though she’s not a trainer. It’s awesome to see that.
Kim proves that if you push hard you can discover untapped potential proving to yourself you are more capable than you ever thought. The best transformation.
Tracey – Consistency Through Life’s Challenges
As you can see, Tracey gained a lot of weight. She is an interesting story because a lot of her weight gain was due to hormones and menopause… obviously something a lot of women deal with.
But Tracey was different she focused on her health. In her fitness life, she started working out with me and got into strength training. But that’s not all she does. She also runs and even uses fitness as a way for her and her friends to hangout. They go to a weekly Zumba class together.
Along with the intense strength training she does with us, she’s incredibly smart with her nutrition. She has become a big time meal prepper. She preps her entire week on Sunday and for her it works.
Tracey is someone who shows consistency, strength training, and not getting down on yourself is key. You are always in control. Just be consistent and patient.
Donna – Consistency and Strength
Donna has lost over 40 pounds! She did it through good eating habits and by staying consistent with her strength training.
Donna knew that strength was vital at her age. Not just for energy, but for bone health, joint health, and gracefully aging. And she didn’t do anything special… just a consistent workout habit of always showing up.
And when she paired that with her improved eating and nutrition habits, there was nothing to stop her.
Donna has kept all of her weight off as well. Again it’s about consistency and knowing that this is truly a lifestyle and not something you do for a little bit.
Rhonda – Leading The Charge!
Rhonda was one of my very first phone coaching members. That was a long time ago. I actually don’t even offer phone coaching at the moment.
She was really into the typical fitness DVDs and she was in great shape. The only thing I did was help her realize there is a different way to workout. A way to more strength.
It didn’t take long for Rhonda to transform her strength. She fell even more in love with fitness and now she’s a trainer leading women to healthy, stronger bodies. I can only imagine how awesome it must be to be in her classes.
Rhonda proves that there is always a next level that can unlock a completely new potential and paradigm. Test your limits!
“Kindal is smart, funny and thoughtful. Her blog is like the New Yorker of healthy living blogs. If you don’t want formulaic fitness, give Kindal a read. She’s topical without being trendy and motivational without moralizing. Awesome blog! Over the year that I’ve read Lifting Revolution, Kindal and I have become real life acquaintances. I appreciate how open and real she is.”
