Kristen Harvey, ***Owner*** Chattanooga Personal Trainer and Scenic City Boot Camp Instructor!
“When I grow up, I want to be an exercise physiologist just like you.” That was the letter Kristen wrote to fitness TV personality, Denise Austin, in 4th grade. Every morning, before school, Kristen would wake up her mom and they’d go downstairs to sweat with Denise Austin. She still remembers everyone’s reaction when she lost the “baby fat”. She no longer felt the pain of being the “chubby” girl. Fitness changed her life and it had become her passion.
But Kristen’s battle with weight didn’t end there. In fact, on her wedding day, she weighed in at her heaviest… “On the day when all eyes are on you and you want to feel “like a princess”, I felt so uncomfortable and self-conscious!” Kristen remembers.
It was the summer of 2004 that Kristen hit rock-bottom. “I was an emotional wreck. I felt like my eating had gotten so out-of-control and it was tearing me apart.” she said. That September she embarked on a journey that would forever be the turning point in her life. She was accepted into a body transformation program and worked closely with an international fitness celebrity. After her successful body transformation, she was asked to become the “spokesmodel” for JNL, inc. and her weight loss success story was shared with thousands of people.
But for her, losing weight was only half the reward. “I not only lost 36 lbs, but I gained control of my life and my eating. I got my power back!”, Kristen exclaimed. “I discovered that ANYTHING was within my reach: The biggest obstacle holding me back was ME!”
