GET TO KNOW KAT

Where are you from?

I am originally from Ontario, Canada but have lived in Texas, predominantly in the Cypress area for 20 years

Who are you and where are you from? Tell us about your upbringing and how you have become the person you are today.

I was born and raised in a very small town called Guelph, Ontario, which is about an hour outside of Toronto, in Canada. As a true 80's child at heart and I would give anything to be able to raise my children as I was raised with so many more freedoms, and in a world where there wasn't nearly as many rules and fears.

 

I was raised as an only child by a single mom who I watched always persevere and find a solution to every problem. She is the strongest person I know and has always fiercely supported me and has been my biggest cheerleader. She is the sole reason I am the woman I am today.

 

How I ended up in Texas is a story: I took a big leap of faith and moved here when I was 20 years old with my ex fiancé when he was transferred for his job. We amicably separated 2 years later and by that time I was already finishing college, had made friends who were like family and fell in love with Texas.

 

Skipping ahead to few failed marriages (a story for another time, lol) and 2 amazing children later, I met my husband and finally found my person. We have built an unbelievably happy life together and I am so excited for what the future will bring for our family!

Before you joined Beast Body what were you struggling with?

I was actually struggling and continue to struggle with severe anxiety/depression. I started kickboxing in October 2019, at 170lbs (about 30 lbs. more than I feel comfortable with) to get my weight under control, to be more active and also to have a healthy outlet for stress. I made friends in the gym, started feeling amazing and was set on the right track to get fit and then...COVID. In March 2020, my kickboxing gym closed down. Talk about devastating! A few of the members started up their own online kickboxing gym which fizzled out after a few months, and I just finally gave up. Without an outlet or any motivation get off my a**, my anxiety and depression worsened. I was over eating/binge eating sometimes without even realizing what I was doing. It felt like there was nothing to do besides eat, and food made everyone at home happy so we cooked, and we ate, and I ended up gaining 15lbs on top of the original weight I had gained in the first place.

What was your breaking point to make the switch to focus on you and living a healthier lifestyle?

It was really a laundry list of things:

 

I was depressed and felt like I had no idea even where to start I had let myself go so badly

 

I didn't feel attractive

 

I was tired all the time

 

I felt like I bait and switched my husband (I was 123lbs when we met 8 years ago, for the record he loves me no matter what I weigh, lol)

 

I was sick of not being able to buy cute clothes

 

I'm in sales and I was tired of being the overweight sales person at networking meetings next to a bunch of thin women

 

I wanted my kids to have a healthy mom

 

I felt like I wasn't taking care of the body God gave me.

 

I lost sight of the confident person I used to be My lack of motivation started to scare me because I wasn't setting a good example for my kids

 

I didn't want to turn 40 and be fat and unhealthy

 

I was afraid to hang out with people because I didn't want them to see how much weight I had gained

 

I did not love myself

How and when were you introduced to Beast Body? *

My friend Liz encouraged me to take a trial class. November 23rd, 2020...on a leg day! I powered through and then couldn't move for a whole week afterwards, lol! I ate my way through the holidays and then started with a few drop in classes at the beginning of January and eventually became a full member February 23, 2021.

What are you most proud of, physically, mentally or both since beginning with us? *

I am so proud of how far along my mindset has come. I no longer say I can't do things. I can and I will, maybe just not yet but I will work for it! It's funny how much you can accomplish when you stop telling yourself you can't do things. It's still a work in progress but I have most definitely come a very long way. Not to mention 32 lbs are gone and I am developing some bada** muscles!

What has been your biggest, most rewarding obstacle to overcome, either in the gym or on your health journey? *

So far in the gym it's been box jumps! This used to be terrifying for me, lol! Also my stamina had greatly improved. On my health journey it's really been all about eating right and sticking to my nutrition plan. I used to work out all the time just so that I could cheat on my diet every day. It took me awhile to realize it obviously doesn't work that way and my results speak for themselves. I am really proud of the strength I didn't know I had in me to avoid so many temptations during the shred challenge.

Why Beast Body? *

I am now amongst a group of people who have given me all the tools I need to be successful, who build each other up and who push me everyday to love myself and my accomplishments.

Whats next? What are you excited about pursuing? *

I am just about ready to start doing double classes. I'm currently working on my mind set and taking advice from other members who are seasoned double class attendees. I'd like to start boxing after boot camp. Still working on the perfect squat and I plan to tackle advanced pullups next! I actually realized during the shred challenge that I am actually pretty good at motivating others and I will be working this week (to start next week) on keeping the team bonus work going for whomever wants to participate moving forward.

Lets get to know you....

3....2...1....

Whats your favorite exercise/movement? *

Bear tuck kick through and also the very last run right before class ends (ha ha!)

What song makes you Beast Mode during your workout? *

Fergalicious

What class time do you usually attend? *

5pm mainly and occasionally 6:15

When your not working out whats your favorite thing to do? *

I LOVE to spend time with my family, especially when we have movie night! I really like to cook and try out new recipes. I also love crafting and I would live at Hobby Lobby if they would let me, lol!

What do you do for a living? *

I am a Business Development Manager in the environmental field, specializing in medical waste, hazardous waste and waste water disposal.

Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us? *

I am a 9 year survivor of stage 4 lymphoma

NOTE FROM YOUR TRAINERS:

We are super blessed Jackie chose Beast Body to be a part of her personal fitness journey. From day 1 this lady has stayed consistent!... She has changed so much physically and mentally. Soon upon arriving and starting her journey she had injured her knee...Like really, we know how upsetting it is to start something and then an obstacle gets thrown our way! Most people would quit... but not this Beast! She still managed to modify her workouts and reach out when needed. She didn't give up!... During Covid-19 Quarentine she managed to loose an additional 14.2lbs in just 6 weeks. She showed us during the 6 weeks of quarantine the characteristics of leadership and motivation! She truly is an amazing spirit! We can go on about how awesome Jackie is....just knowing her for the short period of 11 months we know her journey and story will help continue to inspire so many. Thank you Jackie for being a part in our amazing community!

We love you!

Your Trainers,

Tre & Cass

The people are extremely nice and you can train for weight loss as well as American Ninja Warrior. Dance classes are also available throughout the week for really low prices. Very well ran.

-K. Rougeau

"5🌟 is actually a minimum rating I can give this gym. My wife and I registered at a regular gym with sign up for trainer assistance but did not feel any form of intensity coming from the workout. We went online and found beast body, started with them and all I can say is this is definitely THE PLACE to be. Thank you beast body for getting me back on track."

-O. Adedayo

"Greatest place for a real workout in a family like atmosphere. Trainers Tremayne and Cassandra are just awesome along with a number of other trainers that make up the Beast Body Fitness team."

-L. Dee

"has the best trainers ever very caring and helpful. They truly care about the members and how to help them in their journey to get healthy. Trainers like Tre and Cass come along once in a lifetime."
