Hi! My name is Kristen and am starting a blog to share my success story. I was always an athlete. I was a cheerleader, played soccer, basketball, track, you name it, I did it. After I got married and had my first child thats when my struggle with weight began. I gained a lot of weight with my first son, stopped working out, eating poorly and then got pregnant with twins. Gained about 100lbs and two years later was obese.. I decided one day that I would start training for my first 5k road race. I finished the race but carrying around 60 extra lbs I knew it was time to "get back in shape". I started running and going to the gym and doing cardio. The weight started coming off but something was missing. I ended up hiring a personal trainer. She taught me how to lift weights and I was accountable to her.. 7 months later I was my high school weight and had tone I never new I could achieve. I was happy, at least with my body. Five years later I am now a Personal Trainer myself and Love helping others achieve their goals.
