July Client Spotlight: Kristine Wills
Kristine has become quite a fixture and an inspiration for many at No Limits Fitness. She’s been attending our boot camp sessions on and off for years, but has been attending 5-6 a week since November 2016. Kristine has been working her tail off, and it really shows! Her positive outlook on life is contagious and her level of commitment is inspiring. We are thrilled that she is part of our No Limits Family!
Q: What is your favorite inspirational quote?
A: Thank you for choosing me for the July spotlight. It is an honor. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4.13
Q: What are your personal health and fitness goals?
A: My personal health goals are to remain Cancer free and to be the healthiest person I can be. My fitness goals are to be the best me I can be. I am in the best shape of my life. I am doing total body workouts 5-6 days a week and feel great. I love this feeling and I want to make sure that I stay focused. Not sure what my ultimate fitness goal is yet. I am taking it one day at a time. One fitness level at a time. I am amazed at what I have accomplished since November 2016. I have always worked out but when I joined NLF back in November 2016, Mike recommended the 28 Day Challenge. I never thought that I could have a smoothie for breakfast. This 28 Day Challenge meal plan gave me a foundation on how to eat right. I still prepare many of the meals from that plan. It worked great for me.
Q: What ONE thing keeps you most focused and motivated to continue to work hard to reach your goals?
A: The one thing that keeps me motivated and focused to reach my goals are my daughters Gracie and Gabby. I want to be a great mother and also a great role model for them. I want them to have a healthy lifestyle and take care of themselves.
Q: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started with us?
A: I am married to Dennis and we will be celebrating our 17th wedding anniversary this September. Dennis is a great husband and father. He always encourages me to live a healthy lifestyle and he loves that I work out and take care of myself. He loves to work out as well. I have 2 daughters, Gracie, 15 and Gabrielle, 13. I am a Kindergarten teacher at Pineapple Cove Classical Academy and I love teaching. When I am not teaching or working out, I spend most of my time with my husband and daughters. A few years ago, I was enrolled in the summer NLF boot camps. Then I tried to work out on my own and I also joined the YMCA for a while. None of those were really working and I was continuing to gain weight. I kept seeing some people through NLF achieving amazing results! So one Saturday, I just woke up and said to myself, this is the day to start at NLF again.
Q: How has No Limits made a difference in your life?
A: NLF has changed my fitness life tremendously. I am on Level 4 of the FitRanX
Levels. I love the workouts and all of the trainers. I also love the group of wonderful, awesome people that I work out with. It is amazing how encouraging everyone is to each other. I feel that people at NLF are truly proud of each other’s accomplishments. I am a happier, healthier me since joining.
Q: What kind of milestones have you accomplished and what specific results have you achieved so far?
A: I lost 30lbs, lost body fat and gained muscle mass. What more could you want? I am 2 to 3 dress sizes smaller, I am 2, almost 3 pant sizes smaller, and I wear size small shirts now. Now, I enjoy looking at myself in pictures. I fit in clothes and for once in my life, I am comfortable in my skin. I love my overall look. I look healthy.
Q: What would you say to someone on the fence about making a change and committing to their goals?
A: The advice I’d give to someone else is, if you are going to work out, then you have to eat clean to see results. Drink a lot of water, portion control, and portion control! It has to be a whole lifestyle change. Eat clean every day. Workout as much as you can. Be patient and you will accomplish your goals. Find someone or something that inspires you and hold onto it!
Q: What is your “word” of the year?
We are incredibly proud of you, Kristine! Keep up the amazing work!
