Hey, guys. This Kevin Kreider. In this video I’m going to share with you the experience that I’ve had coaching Yolanda through this transformation. She came to me because she had rheumatoid arthritis. Her life was down the hill and she wasn’t really happy with her lifestyle and she looked me to me to coach her because the thing is change is awkward. Things are going to happen that you don’t expect and you’re just going to need to be coach through this because change like I said isn’t easy either. If it were so easy, there’d be six billion people walking around with amazing bodies and looking like Greek gods and warriors and superheroes walking around but that’s just not the case. You need to be coached if you want to be coached and make this lifestyle change. I’m not a life coach. I’m not going to help you if you’re suicidal get off the Empire State Building. That’s not my job. My job as a lifestyle coach who emphasizes fitness is to help you fit fitness into your lifestyle and to make those changes that you might not be able to do on your own or if you have a coach, it’ll give you the momentum and the accountability to make those changes and that’s exactly what happened in this video and I want to share this transformational story with not just Yolanda and her physical state but also her mental state and her life. Her lifestyle is changing so I want to share this video with you. So, what was going on in your life before we started doing our coaching and if you can talk about the rheumatoid arthritis a little bit.
Even trying to comb my hair or even trying to put my hair in a ponytail was just — trying to do that and not cry because of how painful it was and it’s like who can’t wrap a rubber band around their hair and having to ask somebody to help you. That was just like really for me, really humiliating. Like can you help me comb my hair and it’s just like I’m not ten. I should be able to do this by myself and I’ve tried Weight Watchers and things like that and it’s only like yeah, I only meet these people once a week and that’s it. i’m basically on my own. I think one of the things that was happening more was not having any energy at all. There was honestly a lot of depression.
You know the coaching process, right? I wanted to talk to you if you can share a little bit of your experience with that. Like how was it going with you with the coaching and going through the course, the online courses. How’s that experience for you?
As far as that I feel like with the coaching was — or it is a really big part of just fitness and nutrition. It’s like you can read it and you can see videos online but if you don’t have that one-on-one coaching, it’s certain — kind of holds you accountable. But with having a fitness coach, it’s very different. It’s having that support system.
Yeah, and didn’t people notice even in the first four weeks, telling you —
Yeah, at first it was my immediate family who were like you have a lot of energy now and you seem like you’re really happy. I always kind of considered myself to be a very happy person but it kind of was that whole attitude change.I My mom and my sisters were like I can really see it. You’re really happy. You’re really positive. I’m going to go to the gym with you. I was like all right, you’re going to get up at five in the morning and go to the gym with me? That’s cool. You can come on with and so now lately, it’s more of my friends who are like wow and you know I have a few friends who are like you’re an inspiration and I’m like really? I don’t really see myself that way and I’ve had a few friends who messaged me and who called me and are like yeah, we know how you work in the sense of just even struggling to walk up five steps and kind of having to stop halfway because my knee hurts and feeling like I’m 70 years old but now they’re like look at you. You just ran a 5k.
Do you want to talk about the first date you had?
Oh, yeah. I had a first date with someone that I met here in my apartment complex where he had invited me to go out for coffee and my thing was hey, why don’t we go find a hike? What was funny is he was totally okay with it and I think we have a pretty good relationship now where he is very supportive in the sense of like do you want to go for a hike? Do you want to go see — it’s something here in California where you want to go see the wildflowers bloom and so he’s like let’s go this weekend. Let’s go take a hike over that way and let’s go see that and that for me I think is just really funny in the sense of like who actually plans dates like this. I’m like fitness people plan dates like this. Then I’m like okay, I’m a fitness person now. Let’s go for a hike. Let’s go look at wildflowers and things like that. That’s something that changed dramatically for me.
Who would benefit the most do you think from coaching, fitness coaching, lifestyle change?
I think for anyone who’s really struggling as far as some of these fitness programs that seem really easy and it’s like oh, you can do it on your own but it’s more like you know yourself if you could’ve done it on your own, you would’ve done it a long time ago and it’s something where — it’s not so much like a crutch but it’s just that little extra push that you need to have somebody who is very supportive, who has the right mindset as far as fitness wise and knows more than you do. You have been such a big help to me, more than anyone has been and I just really sincerely from the bottom of my heart want to thank you for that.
If anything I hope it was inspirational for you to realize that you can make a lifestyle change, you can make these changes. It might be a little weird in the beginning, things are going to happen pretty quickly and sometimes you just need a coach for that. You need somebody else to be accountable to keep your momentum, to shift that mental change and to help you sustain this in the long run because that’s what we want. We want everlasting change. We don’t want just temporary short term change. Also if this is something you want and this is something you’ve been desiring and you want it and you just don’t know how to get it or you need a little bit of help, you need accountability, you need the guidance, this is for you, okay. This is not somebody who just wants to dabble into a little bit of change here and there or say oh you know what? I’ll get to it when I want to. This is something you want now and you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired and feeling the way you feel and you just want more in life. You just want to live life finally and you want to have that confidence and that courage to do things you’ve always wanted to do, then this is for you. I’ve had amazing results so far and I want this for you and if you want it too, then fill at that pre-qualification. It’s in the description below.
