Who I am, What I can DO!

Hi! I’m Christy. Welcome to my blog.

I’m a SAHM (stay-at-home Mom) turned CPT: Certified Personal Trainer. I’m passionate about fitness and living healthfully and want to help you get to a place where you share that same love for healthy well being too.

I currently train clients at Earlywine Park YMCA as well as at Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC). I also do one-on-one training with women who want to learn how to better manage their hectic lifestyles to create a more balance habit of working out so that they can achieve their weight loss goals and feel better about themselves.

I am willing to travel to your home or work out with you in a public setting; but not in a gym. We will be creative with where we meet and what tools we use. I promise you, you will get a GREAT work out in an hour as I work you through a full body circuit session. We will also end each session with proper stretching of each muscle group we worked out. I firmly believe in the importance of stretching post each work out. **My availability is typically good during the day and some on the weekends. I prefer mornings and afternoons but can negotiate a meeting time**


Week Two: Being Creative

Without having a gym membership, I've had to find creative ways for Angela to squeeze in some cardio as well as resistance training. The key to making our time together effective, is being creative in the ways we use the tools we already have. It's not so much important to invest in expensive gym memberships or equipment, if you have the basics already at home.

Work Out #1: yoga mat, "fanny lifter", "box step" and free weights

Work Out #2: Box Step, yoga mat, free weights, physioball and medicine ball

Work Out #3: Elastic bands, medicine  ball, yoga mat, physioball

When we combine our resources we have just what we need to build upper and lower progressive work outs with or without using weights. Simple tools yet very effective.

It's been nice not working out in a gym, to be honest. Being outside makes our time together a lot more fun and less intimidating for someone new to fitness. AND it allows Angela a chance to see you don't need to spend a lot of money to have a space to work out nor do you have to travel very far. Pictured above is her backyard and the space we use at Earlywine Park.

How many of you work out from home? What do you have in your home gym?

Week One: Commitment

Admitting there is a problem is the first step to overcoming a problem. The second step is follow through. This was where my journey with Angela began.

I asked all my contest participants to submit their story; defining where they were in their life and why they needed my help. In addition to that, I asked each one to fill out a questionnaire that held them even more accountable. In doing this, it forced each one of them to look at their problems head on, become vulnerable to the process and then open to changing their habits.

After meeting with Angela I knew she was ready. Not only did she admit her weaknesses and her failures that got her where she is right now, she was willing to try and do new things to get herself back on track. 

She has been so open to this process and what it has to offer. Everything I have asked her to do, she has followed through. From taking her "before" pictures to getting her cholesterol tested, tracking her eating habits for a week, and pushing herself during out work outs. Even when it was tough, she stuck it out and exceeded my expectations.

What has also helped with her progress, is the support of her family. When she committed to this process, her husband backed her up 100%. As a result, he too is benefiting from our time together. I love seeing this family take this journey together. Their example is definitely shaping their son's future as well. So much so he joined us during a few of our work outs ~ even when he was supposed to be napping ;-)

Knowing her family is supporting her, her friends and our Facebook audiences are watching, her commitment to this has really pushed her through...and I can't say enough about it! Keep up the good work. I am so proud of you.

Please follow her progress on her blog as she updates it recounting her work outs, her struggles and her triumphs, as well as follow me here on my blog or on my Facebook page ~ click on my badge link to the top left of my blog!

Meet Angela

This is Angela.

Angela and I will be training together for the next three months. Please follow along with us. But first  here is her story:

Like many first time moms, she puts everyone's needs ahead of her own. She struggles with finding the time and the motivation to get her health back on track. In addition to being mom and wife and managing the household, she also works part time.  While juggling all of this, she self admittedly finds it hard to eat healthfully and both she and her husband are feeling the effects of that:

"My husband and I both are starting to see the effects that bad eating habits and lack of exercise are making on our quality of life.  We want to be the family that enjoys outdoor activities on the weekends.  I dream of the day that we spend our Saturdays taking bike rides, hikes, or nature walks instead of complaining that we are too tired to do anything.  I'm ready to stop making excuses and start working hard to live the life I have been dreaming of".  

I think many of us can relate to where Angela is now.  Trying to find the time for oneself, while having to care for someone who is fully dependent on you. But there is way, it just takes commitment. I am determined to help keep her committed and to find the fun side of fitness.

It also takes a positive support group that will help keep her accountable and motivated. Please be that encouragement to her, and leave comments each time I update my blog on our progress together. The feedback we both get from this will motivate us to do more; push us harder and get the results we both want.

Looking forward to getting started on this path to healthy living! Please "follow" my blog (to the left and click on the blue "JOIN THIS SITE" link under the FOLLOWERS tab) for updates and comment when you can!

Let's get STARTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



I want YOU!

I'm looking for "case studies" to help build my knowledge and experience. I'm willing to offer my services FREE OF CHARGE for three months. I thought I would make it a contest and ask each person to submit to me a video diary or blog entry and tell me why you deserve the help

Make your story real. Tell me where you are in your life, where you want to be, what you're willing to do and why you're the best candidate to work with.

I've been asked "why the blog entry?" for your contest. The answer is twofold. One, it allows the client a time to reflect on where they are now, where they want to be and what they expect out of this experience. By writing out their story, they start to own their history and acknowledge they need help. The second reason is, it allows me to go PUBLIC with my message of good health. I will be documenting our experiences together for the next three months here on Facebook and on this blog, which is the easiest and most affordable way to reach a large audience with training tips and client experiences. 

By making our experiences so public, it holds us BOTH accountable to put forth our best effort and results. It's a win win! So please create a blog if you don't have one already and write out your story. 

Submit that entry to me by next weekend. If you submit a video story instead, upload it to your favorite media sharing site (preferably youtube.com) and send me the link (doozerkilgore@gmail.com). I look forward to hearing your stories and meeting you all soon. :-)

We will start in May so you better hurry!

Send your submission to doozerkilgore@gmail.com and "share" this blog entry on your Facebook wall so your friends can see it too!

Thank you and I look forward to your stories
