Figure Athlete & Fitness Model ~ 2009 – present
What were your fitness and competition goals when you started training with Karen?
I was looking for some help with my contest diet and posing and then I loved the way she did things so she started doing my program as well!!! As far as competition goals go….if you asked me a year ago if I ever thought id be 10 days away from competing in a show my answer would have to be no, but ive never been happier!
What are your main reasons for choosing Karen as your personal trainer?
I trusted in her, and saw the way some of her other competitors looked!
What improvements have you achieved so far in your physique since training with Karen?
Where do I even begin…lets just start with the fact that I have ABS…Also my arms are tighter and my legs and glutes…everything is just tighter and not only that im stronger then I ever thought I could be!
What has benefited you the most when training with Karen?
Karen is always there for you 100% it makes everything so much easier!!!!
What do you like most about your pre-contest training and diet?
EVERYTHING…well I could do without the cardio! But most of all I love the fact that Karen gives us lots of variety with our diets and doesn’t just say…. EAT CHICKEN, CUCUMBERS, AND FISH…she’s very reasonable and that’s what I love… also what’s there not to love about eating clean and training your butt off!!
Would you recommend Karen as a trainer? Why?
Yes 150% and I do all the time, she is awesome and knows her stuff, you can trust her and that’s the most important thing in a trainer I think…. Who has time to be worrying about if their trainer even knows what their talking about!
What are your favorite “diet” and “non-diet” foods?
My FAVORITE diet food would have to be the breakfast of champions…. Oatmeal with flax seed and blueberries and raspberries and side of egg whites….mmmm….. favorite non-diet food…. PEANUT BUTTER seriously anything with peanut butter does it for me… OR ice-cream with peanut M&Ms on top J
What is/are your favorite exercises?
My favorite exercises are anything shoulders or hamstrings….probably side laterals and laying leg curl!!!
