What Is Your Name?
What is your occupation?
How was your body before Trevor Kashey Nutrition?
How did that (state of being) make you feel?
What were you unable to do that you wished you could do?
I couldn’t stay consistent. It was either all or nothing and I couldn’t find the happy medium where I could enjoy all of the events, holidays, and things I liked while still working towards my goals.
During that time, how did your current state of being affect those around you?
My husband and I both were in an unhealthy cycle of binging and restricting. Which meant we were either ‘living our best lives’ and not working towards our goals or we were not drinking and avoiding social situations so that we could stay strong and lose some weight.
How did you hear about Trevor Kashey Nutrition?
Through Nicole Race from Elevate, where I did a 6-week challenge and was introduced to strength training
What were your doubts and fears before starting the program?
I felt really confident that we were working with the best of the best. So there weren’t really any doubts or fears. If anything I was worried I wouldn’t be able to drink. This was not the case at all I just had to be organized about it and plan for it. I was really just incredibly keen to get started. I felt like I had been so ready to commit to working towards my goals and I finally had the right support to do that.
What made you say YES anyways?
Feeling so fed up with trying myself and failing and also being fed up with being unhappy in my body.
Where is your body/mind now?
How does that make you feel?
AMAAAAAAZING!!! It’s really cool to walk past a mirror and actually stop and admire yourself. I had never felt like that before.
What are you able to do now that you were not able to do before?
Umm everything? Enjoy eating and drinking while still working towards my goals and not feeling guilty, enjoying going to the beach because I can wear bathers confidently, clothes shopping is fun now, events and holidays don’t give me anxiety because I don’t view them as setbacks anymore.
What positive impact did that have on others around you that you might not have expected?
Always growing up I would compare my flaws to my friends and I always wanted to look like them. Now these same friends are telling me I’m their inspiration and they want to look like me. Which is pretty damn cool.
What would you tell someone who is reading this right now and is unsure about taking the next step?
200% there’s people that aren’t my friends that I want to recommend TKN to.
How likely are you to recommend TKN to a friend?
Strong and fairly healthy but with a thick layer of fat covering my muscles. I didn’t feel like I ever looked good. I felt uncomfortable in almost all my clothes, almost all of the time. I always felt like everyone looked better than me.
I’m a lean bean. I don’t have abs (YET) but I finally feel confident about how my body looks. I actually really like my body. Which I never thought would happen for me.
