Client Testimonials

“I met KimJheri Client Testimonial| www.mamaswithmuscles.com when I joined Crossfit several years ago where she was one of the coaches at the gym I joined. Overtime, I got to know her and learned that she specialized in pre/postnatal exercise. When I became pregnant I asked Kim if she would coach me in the appropriate workouts during my pregnancy. I worked out with Kim two days a week my entire pregnancy. She was very professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. She knew how to modify my workouts as I got bigger, as ligaments became looser, and through all the physical ups and downs your body goes through during pregnancy. She recommended activities to do outside our workout times and was able to help me get through some discomfort by suggesting stretches and talking to a chiropractor.  Kim was always encouraging and knew how to keep me motivated to stay active. I trust her completely and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to stay active during pregnancy. She is a great person and coach. She played a big part in keeping me healthy and strong and giving me the ability to give birth at home naturally. If I had to do it all over again I would definitely work out with her again.” —Jheri

 

“Two months afAmal Client Testimonial | www.mamaswithmuscles.comter delivering my baby I was looking for positive reinforcement and self-motivation to get on an exercise plan and that’s when the amazing trainer Kimberly Araujo introduced me to Crossfit!  I trained with her 4 times a week and in 10 months I went from a size 12 to a size 6!! She kept me on track with her positive attitude, confidence and determination!  I couldn’t have done it without Kimberly…No quick fixes.  She set goals for me and helped to transform my “diet” to a lifestyle change.  I feel healthy and energetic enough to keep up with my 3 boys and above all I feel AMAZING!!” —Amal

“Fitness has always been a huge part of my life, from marathons to CrossFit I love to work out however I have never followed any specific eating or diet plan I always just ate what worked for me.  Last December I had my first baby and post-partum hit me hard. I was unable to work out for five weeks and I found myself eating anything convenient.  After 4 months of this I was feeling starving, run down, and like I was never going to lose my post- partum “muffin top” so I decided to give macro meal planning a try. Counting macros seemed like the one eating plan that I could actually follow since I could eat still eat what I wanted. I did a lot of research and was unable to figure out my macro breakdown on my own because I also had the added factor of nursing full time. I had struggled with milk supply and milk supply was not something I was willing to compromise so I needed to know how to correctly factor it into my macros. I found Kimberly’s website and it seemed to be exactly what I needed.  I emailed her and received a response almost instantly.  She quickly assessed my lifestyle and provided me with a macro break down fit for me.  After a week of following her plan I was still hungry and Kimberly was quick to respond with a calorie increase and plan which I have been following for 4 months.  She explained in detail why she chose the percentages she did. Within 3 weeks I had lost about 6 pounds which put me at my goal weight, I was sleeping better, wodding better and had much more energy. I was also able to email her with any question I had about how to track and log my food.  As summer and all of it’s festivities happened I used her meal plan as more of a loose guide just to make sure I was eating enough daily to keep my milk supply. Now that summer is over I am ready to reassess and start following one of Kimberly’s macro plans again!  She has been amazing to work with and I plan to keep her as a consultant as factors in my life change and I need to change things up!”
