Member Spotlight: Kayla's Story of Dedication

 Member Spotlight: Kayla's Story of Dedication

In 2012, I was at my largest. I would say I was pushing around 300 pounds. I realized I was not happy with my appearance, nor was I healthy and wanted to lose weight so I could be healthy for my two-year-old son.

 

In January 2013, I started a "diet" and I was able to get down to 175 pounds when I got pregnant with my daughter in January 2014. After I had my daughter in September 2014, I was back up to 224 pounds. I was starting to feel depressed again due to my weight.

 

In March of 2015, I decided I wasn't going to do a diet, I was going to change my lifestyle. I was going to eat healthy and exercise as much as I could. I started as a member of Snap Fitness and watched what I was eating. I read food labels on everything I bought and made healthier choices for me and my family.

 

I am currently 150 pounds and throughout my journey, I had many people come to me for advice and tips, which is why I decided to change my career path from being an accountant to hopefully one day having my own fitness business.

 

I am currently studying to get my Certified Personal Training certificate through ACE and have been working at my local Snap Fitness for about two months now.

 

I love it - I turned my hatred for exercise into a passion. I look forward to working out and actually enjoy being healthy. Not only do I want to be healthy for myself, but for my children. I want them to see that exercising can be fun and eating healthy doesn't have to be boring.

 

I was overweight most of my life and was held back from doing a lot of things, that’s something I don't want for my children. I have so many goals for my future that I can't wait to accomplish.

 

My biggest goal is entering the World's Beauty Fitness & Fashion show in 2017. They have a transformation category now. I'm so glad I made these changes in my life. If you would have told me four years ago that I would be working at Snap Fitness and studying to be a CPT, I probably would've laughed at you.
