MEET KIM - About the Founder
I am not new to health and fitness; I fell in love with it at the age of 17. It has always been my passion. However, like many people, I didn't pursue that passion but found security in the corporate arena - keeping fitness as my side gig.
I met my husband in 1995, we had our first son in 1997, and our priorities changed. When our second son was born, we were faced with a unique challenge. He was born with a condition known as CFD, Congenital Femoral Deficiency. This was a game-changer for our family. My husband and I were faced with a decision to make: amputation or years of evasive surgeries for our son to give him the ability to walk with his own two feet on the ground. We chose the latter.
In 2009, I left the corporate arena. As a family, we lived in and out of hospitals, physical therapy offices, and doctor's offices. We ate junk and convenience foods. We were overweight, over-stressed, lacked sleep and were mentally and physically exhausted. We never took the time - nor had the energy to care for ourselves. With a passion and background in health and fitness, I found myself lost.For my husband and I, life's obligations consumed us. We were in the same shoes as many of the people I coach today. For some, it is their job. For others their kids or aging parents. We live in an instant gratification society geared for convenience and speed. We run out the door in the morning, skip meals throughout the day, fight traffic, and race home.
In 2015, my husband and I were sick and tired of being sick and tired. I began studying food and nutrition. Things that we did when we were younger no longer worked in our 40s. We began fueling our bodies with food and not food-like substances. Together, my husband and I lost over 75 lbs. We are lean and sculpted, but more importantly, we feel better and are better parents to our boys. We are leading life by example - a healthy example.
After getting results for ourselves, I was driven to help others do the same. In 2017, I leveraged 15 years of prior experience to share my journey and help others take control of their health. I have helped hundreds of men and women take ownership of their situation and seek solutions that will bless them in the future.
I help others Emerge Strong, Emerge Fit, Emerge Healthy, and Emerge Confident.
I am a certified fitness instructor and an Associate for IDLife - a customized nutrition company, the world's first DNA Customized Health and Fitness Nutrition Company.
