45 POUNDS LIGHTER AND LIVING LIFE AGAIN!
At 208 lbs. I was looking for a change not just with my weight but with my life. I was faced with the realization of the weight I had gained over the years. I felt terrible most of the time and had very little energy.
I joined Kaia Fit, received the change I was looking for and much more. I learned about exercise, nutrition and how to take care of myself. The motivation and support given to me by all the coaches is a true blessing. They gave me the tools I needed to help me reach my goals. I am more knowledgeable about how important exercise and eating right are a way of life.
I have to admit it was a struggle at first to get going with exercise and use of the nutrition guide. The coaches guided me through each exercise and showed me simple recipes that were not only healthy but delicious. The coaches and Kaia girls are encouraging and make the workouts challenging yet fun. In just a few weeks the weight was steadily coming off (and still is). Not only did I lose weight, I toned up, my self esteem has risen and my joint aches and pains are gone. My only regret is that I didn't join sooner. Kaia Fit is a lifestyle change that really works!

It takes a lot of courage to put yourself out there and make changes, I would like to share one of your Kaia sisters story - here is Gina in her own words:
For almost 10 years, I have tried “dieting”, losing weight right at the beginning, only to gain it all back--I was not taking care of my body physically or emotionally. If I would join a gym or fitness program, I would usually go a few times, and then stop going or quit. A year ago, I started hearing about Kaia Fit from a few different friends, and decided to go try it out. I was so nervous and intimidated walking in for the first time, and I had no idea what to expect…From the moment I walked in, Coachlindsay Lindsay and Laura C Gilmore welcomed me with HUGE smiles on their faces, and made all the nerves subside. Lindsay worked out next to me for that first workout, helping me with modifications and form, and I left feeling amazing.
Kaia has been a complete lifestyle change for me, and I cannot imagine any other way of living. The coaches push you to your max, while also making the workouts fun. Even if I start out having a bad day, I know that going to Kaia will turn that around, and I will leave in a great mood. I have never felt more of a sense of camaraderie as I do with the ladies I have the honor to workout with everyday…you go for the workouts, and you gain not only strength but friendships as well.
Kaia has helped me cut out processed foods from my diet, as well as start eating organic, fresh and local, and I feel stronger, happier, healthier, and more confident than I have ever felt before. I am so excited to continue my fitness journey!

It's been a little over a year since I walked into the 4:30 p.m. Kaia Class. I found out about Kaia through the KHSL Breast Cancer Awareness campaign.. It took me two weeks to build the courage to take that step. I think the defining factor was lying on the couch watching TV, looking at my phone, saw the reflection of my double chin, and puffy cheeks on my phone screen, and thought "is that me, that can't be me", instant depression!
I was very nervous, ok that is a understatement, I was EXTREMELY nervous. I did not have any confidence, I was over weight, I was depressed, I did not like "me" very much. Coach Laura walked with me around the building that first afternoon, asking me questions, taking away my anxiety. I believe the whole time she was thinking "this girl is going to bolt". But I didn't, here I am, a year later with the most awesome attitude I have ever had.
I believe I started at Kaia weighing 207 lbs, size 16 (pushing a size 18) pants, everything else I wore was a XL, with the XXL looming in my future. I never drank water, I drank sodas instead, 6-8 a day. I've been through 3 BRIK sessions. I am very proud of my first and third session. The second session I think I let myself down, hence the success of the third BRIK. I have changed my nutrition, eating habits, sleep habits and the most important of all, I EXERCISE, and I LOVE it.
Today, I weight 164 lbs, size 10., eat healthier, sleep better. I have a drive that I did not know existed, I look forward to Mondays. Kaia has given me the tools to a much happier "me"
I've turned 57, I've never jumped rope, let alone double unders, I've never done push-ups, let alone a strength push up, I've run a mile, I've held a plank. I look back at this last year, this journey that I could not have done without out Kaia. I thank you Coach Laura,and all of your amazing coaches. I have learned and taken something from each one of you absolutely, amazing ladies, I truly love who I am
