Kim Kelvin's Two Year Transformation!
My transformation has been incredible! It has been not only a physical, but an emotional and mental transformation as well. I was miserable, but you can get used to feeling miserable, and for a long time i was okay with that. Finally when I was diagnosed with two really serious , possible life threatening medical issues, I began to take action.
In the summer of 2012 I started working out slowly about 3 days a week. Before I knew it, boredom was setting in and I was on the vergeof quitting. Thankfully, that was when I was introduced to the infamous Frankie Perez! I remember her asking me why I had quit so many other times before and i said I got bored. I'm not the kind of woman that can just do the treadmill, bike and a few weights day in and day out. I need the "umph" workout. She said to me that If I stick with her, she promised that it will never be boring! I can say honestly that after 2 1/2 years with Frankie it has never been BORING! Frankie has definitely been not only my trainer, but my friend and guide through this crazy transformation.
I started with Frankie at Spectrum and followed her to Gold's, Elite, BBE and now YF365. She has been with me through some great times and some rough times. She knows how to make me laugh, smile, scream, cry and pushes me to be better than I ever thought possible. She believed in me long before I believed in myself.
My first boot camp with Frankie was HORRIFIC! I cried the whole time because it was so hard and I couldn't do half of what she wanted to me to do. I was frustrated that i had done this to myself. Frankie pulled me aside and told me something that i will always remember. She said, "This is where you start, it's the beginning." I kept those words in my head and ran with them. It was so hard at first and I truly never believed that i would EVER get healthy and fit.I am NOT the most coordinated,athletic person, but I am definitely determined and I put my heart and soul into this journey.
I have met some fantastic, inspiring people at YF365. We support each other and help each other reach our goals. I know now that I do inspire people because I have worked so hard. I have busted through some HUGE roadblocks in these past two and half years that could have brought me down, but I have come out a stronger person.
I am so happy now and love to take pictures and look in the mirror. I am so proud of myself for sticking with it an for getting healthy and fit. I will shout my story from the rooftops if it will help someone who is struggling. I am SO proud of myself for how far I've come and I plan on continuing on this awesome, sometimes crazy, ride that i embarked on 2 1/2 years ago.
