KATHARINE’S STORY

KATHARINE, 36, BUSINESS OWNER & MOTHER OF 3

A business owner and busy mom of 3 who wanted to get back in shape after some time away. She was an athlete in the past and knew how important fitness and nutrition are for a healthy lifestyle, but she also needed someone to motivate her and help her plan those workouts and nutrition goals because as busy women we can’t do everything ourselves, right? Katharine joined SiS as a Lifestyle Fit Program client and didn’t have dreams of competing – she just wanted to get her everyday life in balance and live healthy. But, as she started reaching her goals, she quickly became motivated to get back to that athletic lifestyle. 

The best part of Katharine’s journey is that she loves who she has become. Staring at a her "after" photo, teary eyed because she can’t believe how beautiful she looks, she not only feels beautiful, but accomplished. What began as a desire to have fun and be part of a team quickly became so much more. It became the turning point where Katharine realized just how beautiful and amazing she really is. Plus, she has become an inspiration to others - helping to encourage them in their journeys and know they can achieve what they set their minds to. 

As women we can build each other up and help each other reach our goals. For Katharine, she found this encouragement through working with her SiS coach, and now she helps inspire other women to go for their goals, reach their dreams, and be beautiful in their own unique ways. 

 
 
 
 

MONICA'S STORY

MONICA - FROM SOCCER STAR TO FITNESS COMPETITOR TO SIS COACH

Monica was already fit when she decided to join Sisters in Shape. As a former NCAA Soccer player, Monica was already used to working hard to reach her fitness goals, but after college she started looking for a new challenge - the world of fitness competitions. Hearing about Sisters in Shape from a friend, she decided to check it out and see if SiS could help her with her new found goal of getting ready for her first competition. As someone who was already really athletic and considering becoming a fitness coach herself, it wasn’t that she needed someone to help her understand the why behind working out - she needed someone who could push her to do her best, and challenge her along the way. Impressed by her soon to be coach’s experience in the fitness competitor world, Monica joined Sisters in Shape Power Prep Program and went on to win her very first competition.

Already pretty fit when she first joined, Monica was looking for something different that would challenge her and help her reach a new goal. She had never focused on building muscle like she did for her first competition and remembers the experience as one that was challenging and made her feel accomplished and beautiful. She felt better, stronger, and confident. She was proud of what she had achieved and felt confident in her body - even when wearing a bikini.

After 8 months in the SiS program she got more out of it than she could have imagined and went on to become a SiS Personal Trainer where she can help others achieve their goals. Her advice to those considering becoming part of the SiS community is that when you have the right mindset and it’s the right time SiS can be one of the best decisions a woman can make for herself mentally, and physically. Having a community of supportive women by your side, gaining better fitness, and reaching your goals are all key here at SiS. Whether you’re a busy mom, business owner, or corporate employee, being part of SiS goes beyond the physical benefits and can help you find that balance, be fit, and be healthy. Monica is proud to be part of the SiS team helping her clients achieve their goals and live their healthiest lives now!
