Karen Sessions’ Testimonials
Need proof? Read through just a few of my thousands of testimonials people have give me over the years regarding my personal training and contest prep coaching.
“I have thumbed threw all your eBooks now and their is so much information to absorb! Very scientific and it gives you an understanding of what you are doing, not just a short Oxygen Magazine type article or trainer just ‘saying do this’. Your “Figure Competition Secrets” prep eBook gives information on how or why it will works if you apply the techniques.
The format is easy to follow it is very well through for any level of fitness or knowledge. Our focus is on the information within the Figure Competition book since Kimberly has her first show this April.
We bought all your other eBooks as soon as we dug into your Figure eBook figuring they would be of the same quality and they are. Trust use we will spread the word about your books.”
“I figure if you want to fix a car you go to a mechanic, if you want to have brain surgery you go to a brain surgeon, and if you want to drop body fat without sacrificing muscle….you go to a bodybuilder….because that’s what they specialize in. It seems that all the other weight loss programs out there really don’t care about losing muscle…it’s all good if the scale is moving down according to them.
Your program was the only one that I’ve tried that actually worked… when I applied the principles!”
“I purchased the “Figure Competition Secrets” eBook and found it VERY VERY helpful! It was very detailed and thorough and not just a bunch of stuff you already know or can find readily on the internet. Plus, it’s affordable!
I’d definitely give that a read before you decide on anything else. It covers everything! I just had my first figure comp 2 weeks ago and placed 3rd and couldn’t have been happier! It was an overall really good experience for me.”
“Karen Session is now my online trainer and supplies sufficient information. I don’t want to be confused or destructed by different info. I appreciate Karen’s help for the last 21 weeks! Karen, you are awesome! I am very thrilled for you to be my online trainer.”
“For years I dreamed of being in the best shape of my life and competing in a competition and with Karen’s help I achieved my goal! She not only exposes the myths out there regarding diet and exercise, but she personally tailors a program suited to your wants and needs.
Even though we haven’t met in person, the personalized approach Karen took with me made me feel as if she was right there when I needed advice or a pep talk. I would recommend Karen to anyone wanting to change their body and their life! Thanks Karen for everything you have helped me achieve!”
“Thanks for the info. Also, the little additions you always throw in there. Your opinion is prolly one of the best I can get, so it is very valuable to me.”

“I purchased your eBook, “Figure Competition Secrets” in October. It is GREAT! I have been using all your training spread sheets. I have followed all your advice in the eBook and have been getting ASTOUNDING results.
I really appreciate your supportive e-mails, so keep them coming.
Thanks for the eBook! Its a great tool.”
“I am really excited to use the intense 12 week contest prep workout. Other people wanted to charge me 200 a month for online training but then I found this. I’m very happy with my purchase!!”
Thank you Shavon
“Thanks so much for everything Karen, your words of wisdom are everything to me and my goals. I’m so happy because I’m getting stronger and really think my shoulders and quads are getting bigger. :)”
“I feel soooo great on your program, I have energy all day long!!”
“I wanted to shout out to you a HUGE thank you!!! I could not have made It on this journey without your help and expertise. I wanted to share these pics with you!
Without your help I would not have made it. You are amazing at what you do. I texted you this morning so let me know if you got the text. I want to keep on working to be better in the figure class. Number one in figure would be my goal.”
“Well, I cannot believe that our time together has gone by so fast! I have absolutely loved every minute of it! You have been so instructive and so supportive. What can I say? You’ve helped me change my life! I will always hold you near and dear for such a gift.
The difference is astounding in my picutres! Even I can see it!I have taken your advice about glute work to heart and feel that already these exercises are making significant differences too.
I know that guys in the gym are starting to talk to me like I KNOW something about lifting! That feels great.
Thanks so much! I wish you all of the best! Although I’m sure you’ve got more work than you can handle!”
“Figure Competition Secrets is a great book. I’m a physique coach and competitor and it’s nice to see your angle on things. Our style of training is very similar and I appreciate having the book to reference when I’m prepping my girls and guys. Thanks for all you are doing!”
“I’ve been competing in figure competitions for about 3 years and I’ve done so-so. I bought your “Figure Competition Secrets” eBook and I must say it’s DA BOMB! With the information in “Figure Competition Secrets” and the “techniques” suggested for peak week, I’ve placed higher than ever before in my NPC shows this season. In fact, I got my first 1st place!
Thank you SOOOO much for sharing your knowledge and experience.”
I read your eBook, “Figure Competition Secrets” and it surprised me because you explain all the processes very well. I competed in figure and I want to prepare for the “Europa Super Show” so this eBook will help me a lot.”
“Guess what? Under your program, I place 1st twice in Masters and Novice figure this past weekend. I was super thrilled.
Thanks for all your personal advice and for such a wonderful program. I will be working hard for the next year to put on some more muscle and perhaps compete again.
It was a learning experience for me in how my body performs under the training and diet. I found it very interesting.
Thanks again for all your advice. I will be starting your “Killer Quads” leg training next week and look forward (somewhat) to it.”
White Plains, New York
“I have noticed improved strength during my workouts with less intensity of cardio prior to training. I have been keeping my HR at 70% during cardio with good results. I am burning less calories overall because of the decreased intensity which has also seemed to decrease my appetite. I wanted to let you know that my leg workouts have been AMAZING and I am pushing myself harder with upper body and noticing some improvement there as well. I would like to keep gaining mass in my shoulders, arms and back while continuing to lean out my legs/butt.”
Thank you Karen!!!
“Okay, I am impressed…you not only emailed me back you even gave me information for your forum. That says a great deal about you! Thanks so much and I will def. visit the forum often and keep in touch. Girl, you rock!”
“I had AMAZING results. Must better than my first competition (which I had a coach).”
~ Kelly Rincan
“I feel like I have gained muscle mass and that I have lost cellulite in my legs. I can do do the shoulder BB PRESS with the 25kg -weighted bar! And my Incline DB chest press has increased to 18kg DB’S ! I have to stay focused on my goal. I am still amazed at the strength gains! I have never lifted as much weight as I do now in the chest and shoulders. Another thing is that for several months now after each set the targeted muscles swell I can feel them swell up with blood in the 2-minute rest! I’ve never experienced this before.”
“I have purchased a few of your eBooks and once I got started, I couldn’t take my eyes off them.
The information, your knowledge and expertise in every aspect of bodybuilding is amazing. I have learned so much and have applied your facts into my daily activities.
I am competing in a figure contest in 8 weeks and by implementing the information from your eBooks in regards to training and nutrition have allowed me to achieve my goals.
The tips and hints you offer on a regular basis are fantastic, I would like to keep receiving information once a week.
Because of you and your eBooks I have been able to make a lot of progress with the way that I look.
You truly are an inspiration Karen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
“I’m getting so excited! I have gained another pound or so of lean muscle since my last check in and my body fat has dropped! :)”
“I just wanted to share how thankful I am for the information in your eBook. I hired a IFBB pro this passed year and did not have a very good experience. She did not take the time to educate me on her process and why she was prescribing a particular food plan. I didn’t feel like my program was tailored to ME. Going from one food plan to an entirely different plan with a significantly higher number of calories freaked by body out, to say the least. Your ebook lays out the building blocks and TIMING of meals, supplements and meals. I have yet to receive a follow up email asking how I performed.
Anyway, I don’t see myself throwing on 4 inch heels again anytime soon. I would like to dabble in light weight bodybuilding because I absolutely love to strength train. Considering myself a feminist I have been conflicted with the whole beauty pageant aspect of figure competing.
Now with the tools you provide along with the overview of the journey to building muscle I can finally add some muscle with a greater understanding of the process. I am really thankful that I didn’t perform as well because it motivated me to research the science of building muscle and take an honest look at my motivation being a figure competitor. Maybe I’m sharing too much, but I thought I’d be honest.”
Thank you again!
Capo Beach, CA
I downloaded your figure competition secrets eBook. I love it so much! It was so confusing with all the info and diets out there, but your eBook, “Figure Competition Secrets” is helping make everything so clear!! The list of supplements are great as well!!
Good Afternoon Karen,
“First off I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your “Killer Quads” & “Figure Competition Secrets” eBooks have helped me tremendously with my journey to my first Figure Competition (which is in 11 days 7 hours and 48 minutes & counting). My emotions are off the wall right now (in a good way!).
Your faithful follower! I can honestly say that, I’ve been given umpteen million different versions, and I decided to commit to you and your advice (solely) all the way!!”
“I have never had so much muscle definition in my life. No I do not look like a bodybuilder, but I am starting to look like someone who works out every day-which was also one of my goals.
Thanks for your support and guidance in “Figure Competition Secrets!”
“Your ebooks are AWESOME-INSPIRING!!!!!!!!! I cannot stop picking up my laptop, I have not printed anything yet for my personal fitness library, but I must say, I am so glad that I finally decided to download your e-books. It was Christmas a gift to myself. Your books are so innovative and realistic that is so awesome that you have decided to share this with the public.”
Thank you Very Much
“Just wanted to drop you a note and tell you how much I appreciate your Ebook Figure Competition Secrets. I’m preparing for my first Figure event and your eBook offers the most comprehensive information I have found on the net. You are such a valuable resource for those who have the dream to compete. Thank you!”

“Thank you so much! I enjoy your emails and I LOVE the weight lifting programs! Thank you for making such an incredible program available for everyone! I look forward to these emails every single week!!!”
“You created a monster lol! I won first place for grand masters.”
Regards Bridget K.
“Just wanted to let you know your info rocks! It’s the first serious weight training for women I’ve seen in a very long time! And this *cow* routine is amazing. I can definitely feel the pump and burn where it was lacking before.
I never ever thought that eating 1700 calories would produce any weight loss! It just has taught me a lesson that is does matter where the calories are coming from! I am so happy to be able to finally see some noticeable results after being stalled for quite some time. Although I have to admit the diet part has not been easy. I really like tuna, but I found myself having to choke it down some of the time! LOL! My whole thought process has changed though, and I now realize natural food it the best, before I just thought a calorie was a calorie! I went to put on my jeans this morning and they were loose. I have been tugging them up all day!”
“Thanks for all the great information Karen. You’ve been gracious in answering my questions and “being real” about your program and its results. I’m really glad I found you on the internet and your program. You are a wealth of information and I am very pleased with my purchase.”
Hello Karen a/k/a Ms.Fit
“I just wanted to drop you an e-mail to let you know that I purchased “Iron Dolls.” What a wonderful, informative and concise book!!! And I’m only through the first 30 pages. Thank you so much for providing the information that I always sought but could never find in magazines or message boards.
I’m looking forward to reading the next 390 or so pages, and applying the principles that you set forth.
This is the first time ever that I have intentionally manipulated my diet and exercise to lose fat while gaining muscle and succeeded!”
“Karen was there for me at a time when I needed great encouragement and motivation. She provided me with straight up answers to my diet and training questions. When I applied her advice I experienced immediate results! Karen knows her stuff, and cares about her clients. Thanks for being there Karen!”
“You are the BOMB!!!! I love the tuna & artichoke joke. . . .heehee!!! Even though Brian and I have only been working with you a short amount of time we already love you!!!
This type of help, customization, change in diet & exercise, etc is EXACTLY what we needed!!! I appreciate that you get back to me when you can and answer my questions! This is all so new to us and I know I have lots to ask, but your knowledge and professionalism are MUCH appreciated. You are fantastic!!!
For the 1st time on this long journey i can actually see myself reaching my goals!!! Thank you for getting us on the right track!
THANK YOU KAREN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Stacy and Brian Luckey
“Thank you Karen! I appreciate the time you’ve taken for me. I know by your response that you actually READ my email and I appreciate that.
I will do exactly as you have suggested and continue to read. & enjoy your emails. Thank you for caring and not being a person who only cares to sell her product. That really says something about who you are.
I appreciate you.”

“I just wanted you to know that before I signed up with you I was eating yogurt and cottage cheese for 3 of meals and was not losing a thing. Thanks to you and your site I have learned that was not conductive to fat loss and I just wanted to thank you for having that information out there and available. :)”
“I’ve decided to continue the weight loss program you have me on for another 4 weeks and then will order some more consults so you can help me build. I don’t think you realize the impact you have on other people’s lives. Besides your great work with the consults and the progress I’ve experienced, having the boards was a stroke of genius on your part. It’s like we are all family. Really great people there and it’s no mistake that the boards have wonderful people. It’s because you attract what you project.”
“I have stopped myself dead in my tracks because of discouragement, attitude problems and lack of direction or goals fitness wise. You’ve done my brain a world of good and to me that’s priceless. It’s nice to feel like there is hope again.”
“I wanted to thank you for your help. Over the past few weeks your program forced me to challenge myself by trying things I normally would not have done (bench presses, deadlifts) and to step out of my comfort zone. I am more confident in the gym because of that.”
“I just purchased your eBook “Lose Weight Forever” Girl I want to tell you something…I have e-mail professional bodybuilders with diet questions and never even got a response. Asked a professional wrestler friend the same and still nothing. Your eBook is a god send. I would love to send you some before and after pics as soon as I get started and actually show results. Man I can’t thank you enough for this book!!!!”
Jane E. Marshall-Fisher
“You wouldn’t believe how many people are commenting on how good I look, the size of my arms and how good my legs look, I even see muscles developing in my legs and my butt feels and looks like it has lifted.
I put on a pair of shorts on Sunday that are totally loose on me, which proves that even though I am the same weight I am much more leaner and gainer muscle mass
Thank you for all your help and guidance. I have learned so much from you….and at 44, I am in the best shape of my life.”

Hey Ms Fit,
“I have been a lurker for quite some time at your site. I am impressed with your wealth of knowledge and the way you convey that information to people. I have also read many of your client’s high opinions of your help with their fitness goals on The Elite Physique.”
Baton Rouge, LA
“I personally LOVE reading about supplement information you send us and the info you put in your eBooks. I often read in Oxygen magazine or on various websites what supplements and vitamins they should women ‘should’ be taking to gain muscle and stay lean, but I don’t always know if I need to take most of them, so that’s where you info comes in handy. At the moment I am taking BCAA’s (capsule form), HCA Garcinia Cambogia, Tyrosine (I am hypothyroid), Glucosamine, 100% Whey Protein Isolate, Vitamin D (2,000 IU), Vitamin K2, CLA, Bromelain, a 50 billion probiotic from Life Extension, and the Douglas Labs Multi One a Day. So, you can see that any information I can get regarding vitamins/supplements is very helpful to me 😉
Thank you for all you do for us!
“I just wanted to tell you thanks for your forum! Besides all the wonderful education, support, etc. we can get for our physical bodies, I have met some of the MOST caring, nicest people ever! Can’t tell you how much it’s appreciated. I think you must be the magnet that attracts the “real” people. Thank you again.”
Green Cove, Florida
Good Morning Karen,
“My name is Jaromy Jessop and I am Mishelle’s husband. I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you have done for Mishelle. She has really pulled herself out of the total hell that she was in because of your help. I am so proud of her and I am so thankful to you.
Jaromy D. Jessop
“Thanks Karen! I’ve learned so much from you…even though my life seems pretty messy right now…I’ve never been happier with who I am and still becoming! Just can’t thank you enough for sharing what you’ve learned!!!!!”
South Bend, IN
“I am very happy with your free lessons and will be ordering soon. I have put off ordering your full package because I wanted to see what your views were on nutrition/dieting and muscle building before investing. I am ecstatic that someone finally has all the same views as I do when it comes to diet and nutrition. I love that you don’t follow only the latest fads but clearly have done your research on what works as opposed to who is endorsing the latest diet or pill…..so far you are the only one I have found that does this!!! I am also impressed with the fact that so far I haven’t read anything that suggests that you must put on 25lbs or more in the off season (something I have heard from so many bodybuilders). Personally I think that yo-yoing too much is unhealthy and terribly taxing on the body’s major organs.”
“You’re program works and women need to hear about it. I tell people all the time what it has done for me. No more spinning my wheels getting nowhere. I’m seeing results!”
“I am feeling very strong – had a lot of personal bests – hack squat – 220 lbs; Leg Press – 200 lbs – Dead lifts – 155 lbs – SLDL – 145 lbs – bicep curls – 30 lb DB. Also, finally seeing improvement in my butt! 🙂 I sent you photos.”
Hope all is well with you!
“Just wanted to say thank you for always answering my e-mails in such a timely fashion. I can’t even begin to tell you what a relief you have been to my program so far and it has only been a few days!”
Battle Creek, MI
“My legs and abs are coming in pretty well. I ‘ve lost another few lbs. Down to 141 – my business suits are pretty loose! I am enjoying working with you – you have great advise. I feel comfortable and since I am self-motivated, it’s easy to follow your plan.”
“This morning I woke up and I looked at myself in the mirror and even though it’s only been 5 days I feel different, in a good way. My abs actually looked to be smaller!:)
I didn’t measure this morning because it’s not time to measure yet, 🙂 but I haven’t been feeling bloated at all like i did before on the xxxxxx-xxxxxxx eating program. Man that was horrible; bloated and full of gas; not a good combo.
I really am enjoying the eating so far. I like the 6 meals a day instead of the 5 meals because before when it was five meals my 5th meal was over at 5:30 and then I was up for another 6 hours with no food.
Today I couldn’t stop smiling at the gym just because i can feel that I’m making progress and I can’t wait to hit my goal. I can taste it even though i’m still a ways away, but I just can’t help but smile because i’m so excited! :)”
“I purchased 2 of your eBooks (Iron Dolls and The Competitive Edge ) and have incorporated your routine as mine this last two weeks. I must tell you have never been more sore than I have recently. I just wanted to thank you for all the hard work you put into those books. I have learned tremendous amounts from you.”
“Thanks so much Karen. I can’t believe the progress that I have made in just about 6 weeks.
I might have to change my goals before 12 weeks are up (lol) because I’m almost there already!!!! I think that I would to add some muscle next now that I have almost lost all the body fat that I wanted to.”
“You are so awesome Karen. It’s been a while since I read your book (about a year) and I want to re-fresh myself…..thanks for the quick reply!
I am going to read Iron Dolls again!
I see that you have several other books now!! Wow, how exciting! I want them.
And I am so excited to get the books about competing!!! That will be so helpful. I am going to be getting ready for my first show and will need all the information I can get. Thanks for putting the books together.
I love your website. It looks like you are doing some wonderful things in the fitness world to help other people.
Have a great day!!!”
“I have lost 2 lbs the first week! I love it. The meal plan you carved out for me had made all the difference because it taught me how to balance my meals–I struggled with this in spite of having lost 46 lbs this year. The exercise plan was exactly what I needed as well.”
“I have been an admirer of yours for awhile now. I see how you seem to really care sincerely about helping others reach their fitness goals. In the past I’ve tried “online training” with a rather famous fitness competitor. My experience was disappointiing to say the least. I signed up for an 8 week nutrition plan w/the promise of different meal plans etc. The only thing I recieved was the same meal plan over a 4 week period. Eating the same thing over & over again. Not to mention 3-4 day lapse in response time to my email inquiries.
All this being said I still have not lost my faith in people who really want to help others.
I must say I am SO IMPRESSED with your professionalism and response time. It’s an amazing and very refreshing difference from the “professional fitness competitor” I previously experienced. I really appreciate it.”
“I just want to say I love you guys, your tips and inspirations have been a tremendous help. Please keep up the good work and know you are blessed!”
“You have sold me on your service. Ya know why?
#1) You obviously know how to make changes in your body with diet & weight training (your awesome contest photos!) and apparently to help others do the same.
#2) Your hands on approach with your online clients, checking their stats weekly rather than just rippin off some generic program to everyone.
#3) The fair report you gave on Weight Watchers.
#4) You PERSONALLY answered my email–not once but 3x BEFORE I had even purchased anything. I’m impressed.”
“So if you’ve been considering hiring MsFit for a consult or two, DO IT !!!!!
I was recently at a standstill and slowly going in reverse. I enlisted Karen’s help and within 5 weeks I went from 17+% body fat to 13.5% (and I’m still going down).
How’s that for some motivation. YOU CAN DO IT TOO!
Her consults are very affordable. What ya’ waitin’ for???”
“I wanted to thank-you for the great insights into how I should eat. I have completely changed my eating habits thanks to you. Basically, from starvation to one of caring for myself to loose.”
“Just wanted to let you know I did my first workout this morning…It was awesome! I have someone to be accountable to, and I don’t have to try and figure things out by myself…Thanks!”
“You know…. It really irritates me to pieces that you have to defend yourself with people that aren’t even reading the book in the first place! I’ve read MANY books on fitness and/or bodybuilding before and after reading yours, and I ALWAYS come back to Iron Dolls – ALWAYS!!
Thank you for knowing your stuff and for your updated reports. I’ve downloaded your books to all my devices so I’m never without the ability to go back to them. ”
“My body is changing. My shoulders, traps and bi’s are responding like CRAZY to your program. I have been getting so many comments from the people in my office about my arms (specifically biceps). My upper body strength is way up too. I worked out at home with my son the other day and we were doing push ups and I totally shocked myself with my ease of doing push ups after bench press! I popped out 3 sets of 12 like a man!!!!!”
“I saw my NPC coach friend this past weekend and he said I looked amazing and that you really know what you are doing. Thanks bunches!”
“I had a good week! Dropped some body fat (according to the Omron and my clothing!) and some weight. i am just excited at this weeks’ progress!”
“I noticed in my measurements that I’ve lost and inch off my chest, inch off my waist, an inch off my hips, and a quarter inch off my knees.. so yay! I can feel my legs getting harder and my calves are starting to have definition again!
Things are going wonderfully at the gym.. I’m making gains and am really enjoying the program you gave me.”
“I just wanted to let you know that even though we have never met in person I feel your positive personality thorough your emails and it is great working together with somebody who is so motivating and helpful!”
“I just can’t believe my results in just less than 3 months time. I’m going to take some updated pictures next week and send them to you! I couldn’t have gotten this far with out all your help. I was just running around in circles before I signed up with you. Doing endless cardio and training without seeing any real results. Now I’m training less and eating more!! I plan on signing up again with you when my weeks run out!! I’m still not ready to go it alone yet. Feel free to use my stats and or testimonial for your online training. I want people to know that your system works and how great you are at what you do!!”
“I maintained 100% adherence to the nutritional and weight workout plans. I weighed and measured all portions until I learn them by sight. I drink one gallon of water per day and included Lipo 6 one cap in am, one in early afternoon.
After 48 hours I experienced a wicked day long headache which I easily recognize as my sugar/processed food detox. Since then I have felt great, good energy level, plenty of sleep and rest. I can feel the food burning in my furnace especially after a steak (2.5oz) and dark green salad at night.”
“Thanks for all your help this year Karen. I have learned SO much from/through you – about all sorts of stuff. Words can’t describe how I have changed & my life has changed in the past year since I’ve become more active on the board & getting help from you, personally. Thank you.”

“I just wanted to say thanks for all your help. I wouldn’t be where i am today and i even have a good chance of winning a cruise out of all of this. You have provided me with a lot of knowledge and i think i could do this lifestyle for life. I enjoy looking good :)”
Thank you again,
“I think it’s going well. My clothes fit great and I feel and look better at 40 than I did at… well.. ever! I’ve always been slender but my body is in the best shape of my life. You’re doing a great job. I appreciate all your help! :-)”
“I appreciate you website very much – I teach/give seminars on the cutting edge of nutrition, and you do the same with body building — great combination.”
“Wow, it is amazing how much fat I have lost. I don’t feel hungry or deprived at all.
Thanks soooo much for your help!”
“Without your help I could never have done this. I learned so much. I learned more in the last year with you than on the previous years before that all together.”
“Just a note of thanks. You made me cry with your honesty. This is an area I battle with daily. Just wanted to say thank you for your understanding and knowledge to help people like me learn to do things differently for positive results. Keep up the great work.”
“My muscles have NEVER been this big and hard, and I can definitely feel a difference! Also, I have NOT ONCE felt the urge to binge on cereal, MRP bars or popcorn- which I used to feel like doing almost every night! And that’s even more impressive since I went through my pre-period time these past two weeks, which always used to be the most difficult.”
“I just wanted to say a huge thank you!! I weighed in the other morning at 126. Let me say that again because it feels so good… 126. I’ve had to buy new pants and shorts in 7’s, and that’s from 11’s, and d/t sales and the anticipation of what the future holds went ahead and bought some 5’s. This is all thanks to you and your program. I actually feel like there is hope, and that for me is priceless. Ok, this is turning into a commercial so I’ll end on that note.”
“The online traning program seems to be a very workable plan for me. Your detailed plan makes everything easy to follow – I need the structure of seeing day by day menus, etc.”
“I’m very happy with my results so far. I can see a difference in the way I look as well as how my clothing fits!”
“I just want to give you a great big thank you from the bottom of my heart! The information you sent me was wonderful. This is the best plan I have ever done. It has worked so good for me that it has convinced my husband to do the same. I’m so grateful. I have gone from a size 4 to a 2 (I am small framed) and my husband is shocked and impressed at how much I’m lifting. ( He is SO IMPRESSED with your method) I have gone from a 32D to probably a 32C but my proportion is still good. Yeah! And my abs haven’t looked this good in years!”
“It is really going GREAT Karen! This is a very easy plan for me to follow! I am really starting to tell a difference in the way my clothes fit! Loving it too! Thanks so much for everything!”
“I wanted to tell you how much fun it was to have you as a trainer for 6 week. I know this is my last week, butI will be back soon. I also have amasing pics of before and now. Wow what a difference…
Mostly i want to say thank you for being an insperation to a woman who never thought she could do anything right. A woman who could never look good, ya know what i mean. Thank you . You are my mentor in this domaine.”
“This morning I was 108.5 and 16% bf. Your consultations have worked better than anything else I have ever tried. I love it! I don’t have to do so much cardio, I am rarely hungry, and I am losing fat. Thank you so much!”
Lexingtion, North Carolina
“I want to thank you for holding these challenges. It really kept me accountable to myself. I learned alot about my body and what I can do in just 12 short weeks. I really appreciate your website, products and forum. All these components changed my life for the better. Your Killer Quads program and Iron Dolls are on my list of best fitness & nutrition books.”
“You probably don’t remember me but I wrote to you earlier thanking you for all the inspiring words you write. I just wanted to take the time to thank you again. Your tips have helped me overcome my eating disorder, and stay healthy rather than replace my disorder with food or excessive exercising! Thank you so much.”
“I have been following the program (menu and weights) that you gave me and I have energy throughout the day like never before. I have been substituting some fish/meat with the equivalent egg whites occasionally, because chicken, turkey, tuna and orange roughly get boring fast. I hope this is okay as I just love egg whites. I also take creatine, Abs plus, and 1 flaxseed oil capsule per day. I do research on parkinson’s disease and our research strongly suggests oleic acid (found in flaxseed oil) protects dopaminergic neurons. I have always been afraid of fat burners, so I started with abs plus which has green tea extract and linolic acid. I may get brave and start with hot rox a little later. My weight is 132 lbs, and 21.1% BF according to the omron. My BF has been slowly dropping over the week since I started the program, kind of in small step downs. I have 1 metrx shake after lifting. And last night If! ell asleep before my last meal which is unusually for me. Thanks for everything and I wish I had found your program sooner.”
“We’re getting down to it! Can’t believe it’s just 3 wks from competition. I just want to thank you so much for all your help and guidance. Your diet has been amazing. I get a ton of compliments and people asking what I’m doing. Always giving your name out! Thanks so much Karen!”
“I don’t think you realize the impact you have on other people’s lives. Besides your great work with the consults and the progress I’ve experienced, having the boards was a stroke of genius on your part. It’s like we are all family. Really great people there and it’s no mistake that the boards have wonderful people. It’s because you attract what you project.”
“Well and something even better happened! I had a hair appointment and when I went in, my hairdresser said: “Wow, you look fit and muscular! What have you been doing?” (Now you must know I’m not in anyway “muscular” looking but maybe compared to how I was before!). Anyway, he also said, “even your face looks more defined!” So that was a nice way to end the day. I have had a couple of people mention that they thought I looked “more fit” then normal so it’s been working! A big Thank You to you for that!”
“There is an older guy from Thailand where I train in muay Thai, he told me in broken English “your tummy look not so big”, so I guess that’s a good thing.”
“Thanks so much Karen! I feel you really helped me get moving in the right direction..and the timing of all this is just right. Tuesday I have to go back on the road for about three weeks and then I’ll be home for about 12 weeks so I wanted to sign up for more consultations after I get back. Working with you has really helped me. Motivation is not a problem for me, but having your expertise and guidance has helped me make incredible changes. So to think of all the years I’ve been working out and really just looking the same – and then to get this kind of results in this amount of time is astonishing! I do realize how much the diet has to do with it. So, I don’t want to stop now!!!
Anyway, thank you again, I’ll be “behaving” as best I can while traveling and then you’ll be hearing from me again!”
“I feel really good and I can feel the difference. I have been told this by others too, so I’M VERY, VERY HAPPY…YOU ARE ALSO ONE OF THE REASONS THAT I GET PUMPED UP AND REALLY GET MOTIVATED TO WANTING THIS …
You always have some very POSITIVE FEED BACK and truly from the bottom of my HEART THANK YOU.”

Renewed Personal Online Training:
“I am excited! I believe this should carry me until the end of May. I am very motivated to achieve my best results ever. Thank you so much for all your help so far. It is very encouraging to me to see that I can look the way I want without starving and endless cardio!”
“Thank you so much I’m so excited to work with you. You are the first person I have really worked with on my diet.”
“I never ever thought that eating 1700 calories would produce any weight loss! It just has taught me a lesson that is does matter where the calories are coming from! I am so happy to be able to finally see some noticeable results after being stalled for quite some time. Although I have to admit the diet part has not been easy. I really like tuna, but I found myself having to choke it down some of the time! LOL! My whole thought process has changed though, and I now realize natural food it the best, before I just thought a calorie was a calorie! I went to put on my jeans this morning and they were loose. I have been tugging them up all day!”
“As far as training goes, I am really amazed at how strong I actually am. Not only do I feel a lot more energetic, I was also able to up the poundage’s on several exercises this week. Cardio is starting to feel like fun now that I’m bringing my mp3 player.
Also, people are noticing my weight loss even in office clothes. I received a couple of compliments there. One day I was wearing a pair of pants that I’ve had for almost two years now and never needed a belt for. However, this time when I put them on they just wouldn’t stay up on my hips so I had to use a belt.”
“Thank you very much for being the inspiration that you are. I will never stop striving for an elite physique. You have a fantastic site, and I really enjoy being a part of the the community that you have created.”
Yours in Fitness,
“I am overwhelmed with the amount of time, effort and dedication you put into your online personal training s. Already, you’ve just been so responsive and helpful and just by reading some of the comments in the Forum on your website and having communicated with you briefly over the last couple of days I feel extremely blessed and fortunate to be able to have your assistance. You’re doing so much for the good of others and it fills me (as I know it has done for many other woman) with hope and excitement for the future!
just visited your site for the first time today. Great stuff. You’re truly an inspiration! Again, thanks so much for your time. I appreciate all the information you’ve provided on your site and in your email response!”
“This is the first time ever that I have intentionally manipulated my diet and exercise to lose fat while gaining muscle and succeeded!”
“Thanks for all the help because I have lost a LOT of weight. Thanks!”
“I LOVE The Competitive Edge – Contest Prep Secrets. I just started the carb-rotation program. I added some fat to my diet and tapered down the carbs. I can already see that I am tightening up, even got a comment on it last night from a student in spin class. I have already dropped two pounds and I don’t feel like I am going to DIE the entire day either.”
“When Karen told me she’d help me, I had no idea that she would TRANSFORM me.
I weighed 106 pounds when we started. In eleven and a half weeks Karen was there for me every step of the way. She’d send me via email, a workout program and menu when I asked for it. She also went as far as to remember me and my daughter’s birthdays and send us wishes. By the time I took the stage for my very first bodybuilding competition, I weighed in at 96 lbs with only 6% body fat.
At the same time my computer went down for a week. Karen actually called me long distance, to see how I placed and congratulated me.
She knows how to transform my body. She supplies the wisdom, pep talks, and you supply the work. If you follow her advice you’ll walk away a winner.”
“I am stoked!!!! The Competitive Edge – Contest Prep Secrets. looks great. I can’t wait to read it.
Thank you, Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!”
“BIG CHANGES!!I can really see a difference in abs, hips and thighs. My clothes that I wore when we fist started are too lose. The size 8 pants that I bought fit well this week! Also, I can see my biceps when I move my arms! They look great!
“Thank you so much for all the great information!!! I live in midland, Texas and have been trying to find a trainer here that could train me in order to be prepared to compete, but I haven’t. I am working with a trainer that is doing all he can to get me there. Your eBook has really opened my eyes to so much.. I had no idea.. I really want to do this.”
