TKN Private Client - Ben S.
How to Improve Your Confidence
Learn How Firefighter and Business Owner Ben S. Acquired the Skills to Improve His Mind and Body With TKN.
What Is Your Name?
What is your occupation?
I am a full-time firefighter for the City of Effingham Illinois and owner of CrossFit Effingham (14yrs).
How was your body before Trevor Kashey Nutrition?
Fat and happy. I was a pretty happy guy but wanted someone to take the reigns for a while.
How did that (state of being) make you feel?
Like I said I felt good and happy but was ready for a challenge.
What were you unable to do that you wished you could do?
Fit in my jeans comfortably. I want to fit into a pair of jeans I haven’t fit into for 10 yrs. My favorite $200 pair of jeans. I keep them and will get in them!
During that time, how did your current state of being affect those around you?
Homelife no biggy. At the gym, I think it could affect my business as I should look the part.
How did you hear about Trevor Kashey Nutrition?
Noah P. owner of Goose Island CrossFit. And I saw posts from gym launch and other owners who have worked with TKN.
What were your doubts and fears before starting the program?
Whether I would be able to put in the work expected of me for the program. I struggle more with disappointing others than myself. I’m proved my self wrong.
What made you say YES anyways?
Because I wasn’t going to let “what if” keep me from trying. And Noah was pretty convincing… I trusted his advice and I said ok.
Where is your body/mind now?
My body is great and still working on improving more. My mind is improving as well. I still have a long way to go on both but I am way more confident in the skills I have acquired so far.
How does that make you feel?
What are you able to do now that you were not able to do before?
Fit into size large shirts and my arms are looking great!
What positive impact did that have on others around you that you might not have expected?
My clients and members are following my journey and it is inspiring to them to stay active. The experience I am gaining I get to share with them snowballs out. My wife and son see how focused I am on things and it has given them a boost in attitude as well.
What would you tell someone who is reading this right now and is unsure about taking the next step?
Not to fear the “what ifs”. Every journey is one step closer to reaching a better version of yourself. Even if you don’t succeed at reaching your initial goal, you will gain priceless knowledge and experience that will last a lifetime. You have to ask yourself if you are worth it. I am a coach and owner of a gym that works with hundreds of clients. Having my own coach is no different than the people who trust me with their goals.
How likely are you to recommend TKN to a friend?
I already have!
