V L O G: Kardyy's Fitness Journey | Faith, Fitness, and Consistency 01/01/2022

Kardasha Patterson decided to make fitness an active part of her lifestyle a little over two years ago, and I'm grateful to have been brought along for her journey.

She decided recently to share the story of her personal trials and struggles with weight loss and body image. I've witnessed her show up to every session and give it her all. She literally works through sweat, tears, and frustration to overcome her own insecurities, and continuously works hard to get out of her own way, and pushes towards her mark. Her hope is that her story will inspire others to constantly strive for better.

This is Kardyy's Journey: Faith, Fitness, and Consistency

The fitness journey isn't always about a look, so, I’m always excited to share life change. Today’s is on this strong young lady who realized she was unhappy and decided to do something about it. On the left she weighed 169 lbs and was unhappy, eating fast food 3x per week, and going out all the time.⁣
⁣
On the right she weighs 153 lbs (currently at 150 lbs) and is actively doing something about it. She changed her habits and now works out 3-4x per week and speaking to a therapist regularly.⁣
⁣
I am honored to have been able to be along for her ongoing transformation. I’ve seen the changes first hand.Tthe mental fortitude she has to not hide and face each challenge motivates me daily. ⁣
⁣
She comes in each session and reminds me where she’s headed. This has been another mind, body and spirit transformation. Let this be your .⁣
⁣
“Finding happiness is not achieved in itself, but rather it is the side effect of a particular set of ongoing life experiences.”⁣
⁣

Usually, I don't do this, but this is a point of view that I feel needs to be shared. Fitness for a “look” has been amplified so much on social media that we often forget that for most, starting a fitness journey is about life and the ability to live it to the fullest while sustaining quality. ⁣
⁣
This client was fighting for her life after receiving a breast cancer diagnosis, underwent chemo, and having a mastectomy. Her goal was to regain upper body and overall strength in preparation for a second surgery. ⁣
⁣
These progress photos were taken four weeks into her current program, and we’re less than 60 days away from her next scheduled surgery, so building muscle is a top priority. Although it may look like she's lost weight, the scale remains the same, but her body composition is molding quite nicely. ⁣
⁣
She feels more energetic, her clothes fit the way she remembers, and more than looking fabulous, she feels great! Her resilience throughout this fight with cancer has inspired me tremendously. To be entrusted with her health and fitness during such a vulnerable time has been my honor. It's not your usual transformation post, but this journey has been transformative mind, body, and spirit for us both, and I couldn't help but share a little different dose of inspiration. ⁣
⁣
If you're feeling motivated to do something different and take charge of your health, “Hi, I’m Coach Chè, and it would be my absolute pleasure to stand with you.” ⁣
