“Fitness Friday” Feature – Hard Work!
- Mrs. Kimberly Isom Moore -
Kimberly is the youngest of four and the only girl. Growing up with brothers, she was always outdoors and forced to be active in some form or fashion. She got involved with track and field while in elementary and continued, doing very well, throughout high school. She enjoyed competing, but most of all, she loved her athletic physique.
In college, she gained 30 pounds quickly. Suddenly she went from size 8 to 13, and got depressed every time she stepped on a scale. After going to the campus clinic, she learned that she had high blood pressure and cholesterol.
The balance between college and work, made it difficult to engage in other activities. She was less concerned about the type of food she ate and just grabbed the cheapest and quickest foods available, which were most often the unhealthiest.
Kimberly’s 21st birthday present to herself was the decision to take control of her life. That day marked the turning point where she began her journey on the road to a healthier lifestyle. The following day, she cleaned out her refrigerator and cabinets and threw out all bad foods and restocked them with healthier options.
In the beginning, Kimberly was far too ashamed to go to the campus gym, so she invested in some video tapes (the first 3 sets of Tae-bo tapes by Billy Blanks are her all time favorite), a treadmill, free weights, and a home gym with resistance bands and a bench with the leg attachments. She began gathering information about health and fitness from various sources and adopted a nutrition and exercise/cardio plan through her findings.
Kimberly went on to educate herself even more by getting certified as an exercise trainer and completed the Body For Life Challenge. She gained a wealth of knowledge about nutrition. Once she began a more solid nutrition and weight training/cardio program her body image began to transform in a matter of 4 months. One day, she flipped through a Women’s Muscle magazine with Monica Brant in it. That moment began yet a new chapter in her life. The following year, she competed in my first figure competition and placed first winning my pro-card.
- Mission -
Kimberly’s mission is to empower clients to take control of their physique through education on not just what to eat but when to eat what. And also proper technique of exercises, and develop an exercise routine that works for best for them that is fun, interesting, and produces results. http://www.kimfitonline.com
