As a fitness professional for over 25 years, I’ve felt my share of frustration and exhaustion, at times wondering what am I even doing?
Sometimes even feeling like a fraud who was teaching about health and wellness while myself not feeling physically, mentally and emotionally at my best. Can you relate?
And it's hard to always be "on" at every class, bringing your best so that your clients can become their best, right?
You want to help others, to maximize your positive impact in the industry; but, if you’re not putting your own well-being and growth first, you’re playing small.
And not only will you suffer but it will hold back those you’re hoping to serve as well.
You and I both know there is more to fitness than just physical fitness.
Fitness is about the holistic well-being of both the body, mind and soul.
What keeps most fitness professionals from becoming industry leaders is that they don’t take complete ownership of their own mind-body-soul growth.
You probably get all this and may even be thinking, “But I’m a fitness professional; I’m a leader, I’m a coach. I should be able to figure this out myself!”
Yeah, I thought that at one time, too.
In 2006, I was struggling to stay healthy as I burned myself out trying to fulfill all the expectations placed on me - by others and myself. I thought…
That’s when I learned the most important lesson of my career.
Coaches need Coaches.
Because no matter how good of a coach we are, we can’t coach ourselves.
From executives to athletes, those who excel; who are at the top of their game are there in huge part because they have a coach (or multiple coaches).
A coach can objectively see and point out your blind spots in a way that lifts you up.
Coaches create a safe space to explore and ask the right questions for you to be able to gain clarity on your next steps.
When I turned to other coaches, mentors and teachers to help me focus on holistic well-being and growth for myself, a world of opportunities opened up, one after another.
This was fascinating and eye-opening for me. Some coaches I've worked with closely and others, I've never even met in person. Yet, it was their teaching, guidance and example that took me places I couldn't get to on my own.
I began to explore and learn not only about new ways to teach or improve my coaching ability, but started diving into positive psychology, personal development, spirituality, and wellness practices that lead to major changes in my life and work.
I became a better instructor, manager, educator, partner…I became a healthier, happier, better version of me…because I became a more empowered, more authentic version of me.
This allowed me to reach leadership milestones that were beyond my wildest dreams and achieve every desire I’ve ever had within this industry.
By allowing myself to be coached and mentored, I’ve become – and will continue to become – a better coach for you.
You can decide today to become the best coach and mentor you can be to best serve those you want to serve and, in return, experience the success and fulfillment you dream about…live the happy life you want to be living.
All you have to do is be open for learning.
And that's important to me because...

Kimberly’s positivity and genuine interest in me left quite the impression. I felt inspired, which is something I hadn’t felt in a long time. My confidence in my ability increased as did my self-esteem and self-worth. I am now happily doing exactly what I want with my life and will always be forever grateful to Kimberly.
Kimberly’s coaching opened the door for me because so many things she taught really got me to see what was possible.
Working with Kimberly, I’ve really grown as a person. She is the shining example of a true leader, changing the lives of everyone she meets for the better. Kimberly leads from the heart and I am extremely proud and grateful to call her my mentor!

She is driven by purpose, fueled by authenticity and powered by doing the right thing, simply because it is the right thing to do. Whatever your need, whatever your vision, whatever your challenge, Kimberly is the person you want at your table to help you figure it out and get it done.
I’ve learned firsthand that Kimberly has an uncanny knack to see the best in you before you even have a glimmer of awareness of it yourself. She is generous with her time, steady and even keeled, with a wicked sense of humor that seems to come out of nowhere and send you into fits of laughter. This is one special person. I’ve met no one else like her.
