A few months ago I set out to transform myself into a happier, healthier, stronger, smaller woman and I have catapulted myself toward my end goal by doing this 6 week challenge. I had already been working out at Aim4Fitness for 3 months before the start of this group transformation. I had lost a little weight and was starting to see a change in my body but other than increasing my daily water/fruit/veggie intake and decreasing the amount of alcohol/sweet treats I consumed, I had not dramatically changed my eating habits. Following Kathy’s meal plan is what made the difference. Being able to successfully complete 3 days of detox right out of the gate was a huge accomplishment and had me believing I could easily conquer the entire 6 weeks and lose the weight. The best part of the meal plan was that it consisted of all normal foods prepared in a much healthier way. No fancy ingredients, no special order items and no “diet” foods….just a lot of fruits, veggies, lean meats and healthy snacks all in reasonable proportions. I have never eaten a huge variety of fruits and veggies and have always been a fan of convenience foods (fast, pre-packaged and easy to eat on the go), but I kept an open mind and tried a ton of new foods and various ways to prepare them. I have actually started to enjoy cooking!! Having every meal and snack planned out each week along with a detailed grocery list guaranteed my success. The recipes provided by Kathy were delicious and easy to follow! Having a private FB group to post pictures, share struggles, celebrate successes and exchange recipes, questions and tips was amazing!!! The workouts were another key component to the transformation. The way you work your body at Aim4Fitness will cause you to lose inches and tone from head to toe. It’s such a good feeling to no longer crave chocolate, cereal and sodas…..to fit in those smaller clothes that have been collecting dust in my attic AND to see my complexion go from extremely oily to a barely there healthy glow. I have transformed my attitude about food, gotten into a nice routine of working out 3-4 times a week and honestly feel that I am prepared to continue making healthy choices for myself and my family.
For anyone who may want to do this challenge in the future, I simply say that you CAN do it. The support you will receive from Kathy and everyone in the group will get you through. Don’t focus on what you may be giving up (it’s probably horrible for you anyway), instead focus on how you will look and feel at the end. Keep a positive attitude and there’s no limit to what you can accomplish.
I was very apprehensive about this program because i had tried everything to lose weight and failed. That apprehension disappeared as soon as i did the first class. I actually enjoyed the punching and kicking! Great stress relief. The menu was very easy to follow and i actually felt like i was eating all the time. Kathy has been involved with us and keeps us accountable. Kathy knows all our names and truly cares about our progress. The inches are melting away each week and the number on the scale continues to go down. I feel absolutely wonderful and cant wait to continue towards my goal of the new sexy me!!! Thank you kathy for all you have done
I have learned that I am stronger than I thought, but not as strong as I am going to be!
Give me a testimonial about your experience with this challenge & Aim 4Fitness.
Prior to this challenge, I was tired all the time. Now, I am so energized after a workout! I have been able to reduce the amount of blood pressure medication AND medication for Type 2 Diabetes. My doctor was ecstatic, but not nearly as happy as I have been. This challenge has helped me make a good start to getting my life back on track!
What advice would you give a future challenger should they be looking to get into shape & change the way they look & feel?
As the slogan for Nike goes “Just Do it”! Do not be self-conscious about being the older person or heaviest in the class, or worry that you cannot do everything (like sit ups, push ups and planks) the first class; do what you can. The results will come with consistentency: 3 classes a week and following the meal plans that Kathy provides. You matter and so does your health! You deserve this to enrich your life!
Fantastic experience! I was a little unsure at first but from the minute you walk through the door everyone welcomes you. This was the perfect start to my New Year! Looking forward to a lot more awesome work outs.
I have been doing the 28 day Vegas challenge and I can’t say enough about the support I have had from the women at this gym. From the workouts to the accountability groups it has truly been what I need to get my health back on track. If you aren’t going to this gym, you are missing out!
This place is fantastic! It was exactly what I needed to get my butt in gear and make my health a priorty. Its not scary at all. They ladies are very helpful and always encouraging. You won’t regret giving them a try!
I love this place!! Kathy and the entire staff at Aim 4 Fitness really know how to motivate and encourage you. As a very self-conscious person, I feel very comfortable working out here and actually look forward to coming. Please check this place out! I promise you won’t be sorry. It’s addicting!

I love the atmosphere at Aim4fitness! The small group classes with only females is great. The staff is very supportive and makes sure you have good form while exercising. It’s actually fun so time flies while getting your work out done! Highly recommend kickboxing at Aim4fitness.
I love AIM because it more that just a workout! AIM IS THE TOTAL PACKAGE! The workouts are fun! I have encountered and meet so many great women! Kathy and all of the staff are there to give you an extra push. Kathy gives all kinds of nutrition tips and information to you help lead a healthy lifestyle.
