Kristen Simmons – Precision Nutrition Certified and CPT

I was always active and in to sports in my adolescence years. What many dont know is that for most of my teens and early 20s I struggled with an eating disorder and my mental and physical state continued to deteriorate over my high school and college years. 

I hated my body, hated my appearance, hated feeling so unhappy all the time. I unwillingly went to an outpatient rehabilitation program and managed to put on some weight but eventually fell back into my old ways of restriction.

I was lost and looking for an outlet. I was drinking frequently, not eating, and letting my emotions get the best of me. I was starving my body and obsessing over food.

Fast forward a few years and I was on a mission to look like the fitness models I saw on social media so I hired a personal trainer. But I never saw the results I wanted because we never took a closer look at my nutrition. 

 

I finally realized that I did not want to go through life feeling this run down and unhappy. I hit my breaking point.

I remember promising myself I was going to commit to a better me. I was so sick of idolizing other women and their body shape.  It was then that I made that commitment – to do whatever it took to find my mental happiness so the physical could follow.

I have made leaps and bounds since then. I have transitioned from envying others to becoming the best version of ME. Amber and ADOFitness has helped me immensely in my never ending journey to health, happiness, and balance. I am honored to now work beside her to help other accomplish their own goals.

I 100% believe that it was through health and fitness that I saved my life. I believe that the mental demons would have destroyed me had I not had the courage to stand up to them and take my life back.

 

My mission is to free other woman of these insecurities, of the detrimental thoughts and behaviors of restriction, and teach them to live a balance truthfully happy and healthy life.

Kristen is like having your own personal book of knowledge when it comes to fitness and nutrition. Not only is she a amazing support system, she has helped me obtain a healthy relationship and understanding of food as well a understanding my body and how it best responds to it. Along with designing the physique I've wanted.

At the age of 53 I am inspired by Kristen to become certified by Precision Nutrition and possibly continue on to a personal training certification. Thank you Kristen! You cannot go wrong with Kristen for guiding you in achieving your health and fitness goals!!!! She is the BEST!

Then Easter of this year Jess signed me up with you. I was apprehensive at first because of my schedule being so dynamic and downright ridiculous at times, and the adaptation was challenging at first to be honest; however, you made it so much easier than it could have been.
