THE BIG DIFFERENCE IS THAT KJO coaching works with your mindset first. INTRODUCING SMALL CHANGES AT A TIME AND YOU DON'T EVEN REALIZE HOW big changes you actually do in a very short amount of time.
I don't know if there was a specific point but I have been able to have my treats and still feel like everything is under control. I do not obsess about it anymore and most importantly I do not have any guilty feelings. I have a treat when I have a craving but there is no mindless binging anymore because I know I am allowed to have it when I actually have a graving. I have just grown so much and I feel like a totally new person.
I'VE ALWAYS HAD ISSUES WITH my body image perception, AND A poor relationship with food. I NOW FEEL ENCOURAGED TO TURN negative body thoughts INTO A GROWTH MINDSET— TO SET realistic expectations with nutrition based ON MY OWN LIFESTYLE, WHICH IS FILLED WITH social events, gym visits, a sweet tooth, and an unpredictable work schedule...
Kasey's holistic approach to nutrition, health and wellness is contagious. She has taught me the ABCs of macronutrient planning, and is now encouraging me to take a deeper dive with my overall nutrition by slowly increasing my overall caloric intake to fuel my strength training workouts, in hopes to build muscle. Kasey has been my trusted nutrition advisor for over a year, and I am proud to say that my perception on nutrition, body image and overall lifestyle has greatly improved. I am not one to take big risks when it comes to my physical appearance.
KJO has definitely ADDED more to my life while past attempts at making changes have been rooted in sacrifice
I think the biggest difference though is that even if I hadn't seen any change at all I would still be happy with my progress and excited to keep going. KJO has definitely ADDED more to my life while past attempts at making changes have been rooted in sacrifice. I feel like I had a breakthrough in mindset the last few days - in the past I'd always use the insecurity/self hate as my motivator to make better choices/go to the gym. Since I've started coaching I've noticed a slow shift in wanting to do these things because they make me feel good - not as a punishment or as a way to try to change physically. My weight has been stable so seeing such big changes in the photos was shocking!LEARN MORE ABOUT KJO COACHING PROGRAMS
HONESTLY, NOW BEING 9 months post partum, I'M IN THE best shape of my life, AND I AM OVERALL VERY HAPPY! I don't correlate my happiness with a number on a scale, I CORRELATE IT WITH how I feel mentally...
When I started with coaching, I was 4 months postpartum and ready to start the new chapter of getting back into fitness/health after recently having a baby! My goal was to love my new body, but also feel like myself again! I also wanted to continue to breastfeed and wanted to go about losing the baby weight but also not drop my milk supply. I was at a loss of how to start my fitness journey back.
I HAD PRETTY MUCH given up ON having the body I wanted AND BLAMED IT ON MY hypothyroidism, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and pre-diabetes—I THOUGHT I WAS "stuck" AT BEING SLIGHTLY CHUBBY FOREVER...
I have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. I've tried everything out there, and consider myself pretty educated when it comes to health and wellness(I have two degrees in the field!). I had pretty much given up on having the body I wanted and blamed it on my hypothyroidism, polycystic ovarian syndrome(PCOS), and pre-diabetes-- I thought I was "stuck" at being slightly chubby forever (to be fair, my BMI has been about 25-26 for many years).
I decided that this would be the year that I did something different...

I CAN'T IMAGINE not keeping up with GOING TO THE GYM AND EATING HEALTHY ESPECIALLY NOW THAT I HAVE lost weight AND seen mindset improvements
What made me hesitate to hire a coach is how out of shape I was but it got to the point where my doctor was telling me I needed to make a change because I was in the obesity category. I was surprised by how understanding and supportive my coach was. My habits have completely changed. Now I meal prep, go to the gym regularly and drink plenty of water. I definitely recommend KJO - I know for me my lifestyle has completely changed for the better.START YOUR APPLICATION NOW
MY KJO COACH HELPED ME THROUGH A reverse diet and programmed AN AWESOME workout routine
More importantly she guided me through building confidence in myself and bettering my relationship with food. Since working with KJO, I have learned so much about what body needs, and I recently was able to eat an unplanned meal out without derailing my progress or feeling guilty the morning after! I also have had a pack of Reese’s pumpkins in my pantry for two weeks and have only eaten one! Before working with KJO, I would have eaten the whole pack in a weekend without even thinking. KJO is truly helping me become a better, healthier version of myself!”START YOUR APPLICATION NOW
INVESTING IN KJO COACHING WAS THE best decision I COULD'VE MADE AND STARTED TO feel better immediately. IN THE PAST 90 DAYS I HAVE SEEN significant loss, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY I'VE GOTTEN strong.
KJO has exceeded ALL expectations I had of coaching/macro tracking. I struggled for YEARS with what/when to eat. I was consistently trying to calculate my own macros which lead to failure and food guilt. I had no energy and I was plateauing in the gym. Investing in KJO was the best decision I could’ve made and I started to feel better immediately. In the past 90 days I have seen significant fat loss, but more importantly I have gotten STRONG. And I mean real strong...

DON'T JUST take our word for it
It is so cool seeing and understanding exactly what I’m putting in my body and using more than just straight calories AND and fueling it to be strong!
Today was my 3-month measurements and progress pics day... and all of my measurements are down! Can’t say how empowered I feel with my mind and body right now!!!! I can’t wait for my next month's progress pics and measurements- I can’t believe the progress I’m making!! I had to throw out half the clothes in my closet!!LEARN MORE ABOUT KJO COACHING PROGRAMS
"I no longer view food as “bad or good” but rather make the healthiest decisions I can daily, while still allowing myself to indulge at times."
"Christina is so prompt, knowledgeable, and just a solid coach. I also just love her vibe - she comes off so calm and level-headed..."
"I can’t say enough good things about Ashlyn. She’s always on top of everything..."
"Thank you for building and bringing together such an awesome group of women/coaches..."
"I have never in my life, stuck with a program for this long."
"I finally took control of my diet (instead of having food control me), but also have flexibility in what I eat."
"At any point that I have had any question or concern, I always knew that I had a support system. That’s more than a coach, that’s a friend..."
My original reason for wanting to invest in coaching was simply to lose weight, but I've gotten so much more out of it. KJO's personalized nutrition plans along with her guidance, recipes, & meal ideas have been incredibly helpful. I have lost more than 25 pounds since I started with her, but what I believe is even more important is that my coach has helped me make positive changes about the way I think about eating in terms of portion sizes, "good" vs. "bad" foods, and not feeling like I have to be starve myself to lose weight.
I love that she helps keep me honest with myself and provides motivation when I need it!
Having been sucked into all sorts of diets and exercise programs it always ended the same: I gained back the weight, went back old eating habits, and stopped exercising.
I knew I needed a lifestyle and mindset change! Working with KJO Coaching has shown me that fitness is a journey, not a destination.
I have learned that maintaining a sustainable, active, and a realistic lifestyle doesn’t mean sacrificing and deprivation but rather, still getting to enjoy your favorites with a little pre-planning! I’ve really enjoyed working with and learning from my coach - she is a patient, knowledgeable, and kind coach that celebrates your progressions as if they were her own.
...always took the time to get to know me: my nutrition strengths, weaknesses, and my nutrition philosophy. I never felt like I was just a client. I felt like I was being truly made a commitment to.This style of coaching helped me not just see physical results (which I did!) but was clear that I was growing mentally too...
KJO helped me not just with achieving my physical goals, but she helped me change my mindset in regards to nutrition, health and progress.

My coach has helped me every step of the way and we have made some major progress...
Coaching has been a wild ride so far to say the least. My coach has been super supportive of a lot of crazy things that have been happening in my life. So far while working with KJO, I have had my husband deploy for a year, work 70+ hours/week for work, have some health issues, as well as go home to spend time with my family in NJ which required a home workout since gyms aren’t open there. My coach has helped me every step of the way and we have made some major progress. When I had an emotional slump around week 5, we hopped on a call, and she listened to me and helped me understand that I am actually doing really well. She gave me concrete steps I could take to feel less overwhelmed and more motivated. I’m so glad I’m working with her and that I get to be a part of this community!
Lastly, I have noticed some major mindset shifts. I learned that I don’t feel like I have the same cravings or get the same enjoyment out of unhealthy food or drinking alcohol that I used to. I am able to recognize the small changes in how I feel every day as well as look at how different my mindset is compared to last year. I feel that if I am having a bad day or a rough time, that I am able to bring myself out of it quicker than I have before.
My KJO coach didn't spoon feed me they encouraged me to reflect each week on my progress and come up with my own solutions and goals with their knowledge, help and support there to guide you...
KJO coaching is the first online one on one coaching experience I’ve had. The weekly check ins and the fact that things outside of the gym are taken into consideration was really important to me. In the past I had one trainer who was great at improving my training, but when I wanted to address my nutrition her only advice was “to keep doing what I was doing”. Which wasn’t helpful as I knew I wasn’t eating very healthily as my eating habits were very much affected by stress. They made no effort to dig deeper or to refer me to someone with more nutrition-related scope. In addition, I felt they very much trained me and possibly others in a way that made you dependent on them. So when I stopped training with them it took a while to develop the training habit on my own. KJO is absolutely the opposite of all of this... and I am SO thankful for that.
I am so proud of my transformation and plan to continue to make this a lifestyle rather than a diet...
Before I started working with KJO, I worked out 5 times a week, but didn't pay any attention to what I was eating. After working out that often without any results, I knew I had to make some changes.
Working with KJO was exactly what I needed to get the results I was working so hard for. About a month tracking my food and working with KJO, I saw significant changes and was motivated to keep going. I found myself feeling better. I was able to push myself harder at the gym, and everyone around me started noticing changes in my appearance.
I am so grateful for the accountability and guidance KJO provided, as well as the confidence she had in me. I am so proud of my transformation and plan to continue to make this a lifestyle rather than a diet.
"I LEARNED HOW TO HAS prioritize MYSELF"
I started looking for a nutrition coach after I had been working out four to five times a week for a year and was not getting the results I wanted so I was losing motivation. A trainer at the gym told me about KJO and my life has changed ever since.
I was one of those people who thought eating “right” revolved around strict eating habits and starving yourself. KJO taught me that to lose weight I needed to eat more of the good stuff and less on the “bad”. The first couple of weeks were hard for me because I didn’t know I was not eating enough and so when she gave me macronutrients to follow I had a tough time eating it all. It felt like a lot of food!
My coach was there every step of the way even taking my phone call at night to help me grocery shop! Now that we have been on my journey for a couple of months I have lost eight pounds, gained muscle definition, and now have a healthier relationship with food.
I am way happier now then I was in the last five years. KJO has taught me it is okay to have some of the unhealthier foods once in a while, in moderation, but the most important thing is that I now have the confidence to know I can make healthier choices and I’m recognizing my bad previous habits. I am stronger now then I have ever been and I have her and hard work to thank for that!
When I first started my fitness journey you would never catch me in a crop top.
I didn’t want people to see what my stomach looked like. After all my realizations with you and how my aesthetic goals have changed, I decided I wanted to wear crop tops and redo my fitness wardrobe to a more updated look. Wearing one today and I feel so comfortable in my skin now and every time I look in the mirror I think “damn I look good!” I’m so proud of how far I’ve come.
I haven’t worried about anything and feel like I finally found my sweet spot in my health journey. I found something that is sustainable for me and allows me to go through my journey based on how I feel and not how I look. My gym sessions are even getting better as I properly fuel myself and reap the benefits at the gym. I feel like KJO has completely shifted my mindset to overall health and not just an aesthetic goal. I feel like I can do this long term easily and continue to improve my health.
KJO has changed my life completely and showed me during this time that my goal doesn’t always have to be looked at and improved my mindset completely. I think that I will definitely be ready to spread my wings at the end of the month and put everything you taught me to the test on my own.
FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS ALWAYS HAD a restrictive diet and obsessed over the scale, LEARNING HOW SHIFT MY MINDSET was invaluable...
Through KJO I learned that I was not eating enough daily and she suggested that I try increasing my calories slowly. My coach advised that I spend more time weight training then continuing with my typical cardio heavy routine.
In just 2 months, my calorie intake went from around 1,200 to 1,700. I did not expect to see much of a change in my overall appearance; however, during this time clothes began to fit better and I became more motivated to stick with the program.
"So much education, and everything is backed up with research. Prepare to have your coach be a huge advocate for you. 12/10 would recommend..."
Prior to this, I have never worked with an online coach or any coach/personal trainer. I chose to work with KJO because the information they provide has always been very informative, backed by science, while also being very realistic about the hard work, effort, and patience needed to achieve your goals.
Along with the changes to my physique, KJO has definitely taught me the importance of looking at your health in a holistic manner, which I think not very many coaches address.
My coach was always curious as to what is happening outside the gym and kitchen that could also be affecting my health, while also being very knowledgeable about changes I needed to make and pushing me to be an advocate for myself.
I could go on and on about all the positive things KJO did for me and how amazing my coach was, but in summary KJO is a kickass coaching company because they truly care about you, make sure to educate you along the way, and they're always available to answer any questions you have.
"As a female, body image is often a challenge, but I feel like I have the body I've always wanted, and I have the tools to maintain the results I've accomplished without a lot of effort or sacrifice..."
Working out consistently each week has been part of my lifestyle since I was in high school. I've been "in shape" and strong for a long time, but NEVER got the results I wanted to see in my physical body until I started working with KJO and paying attention to nutrition.
Tracking macros and flexible dieting works for me because I can still eat anything I want, I can still enjoy cooking, meals and dining out with friends, and treats without feeling guilty or like I'm ruining my progress. Though I HAVE learned how great I feel when eating healthy and do so most of the time. It takes ALOT of commitment and discipline, and it is HARD at the beginning. You have to have some trust and patience with the process, because the results don't happen overnight.
But the first time I saw how different my body looked after 7 months of work... that feeling was amazing. And at this stage, tracking is much easier, it's just a habit now and I know enough to make educated guesses when I need to.
I SPENT YEARS under earing and over-exercising ONLY TO SEE little change and have zero energy! I NOW HAVE MORE ENERGY THAN I EVER HAVE IN MY LIFE, my cognitive function has improved tremendously, my hunger and constant focus on food is gone and my maintenance calories increased by 500 calories/day WHILE LOSING WEIGHT AND COMPLETELY CHANGING MY BODY COMPOSITION...
It has been such a fun & truly life changing experience to work with KJO over the past year. If only I had found KJO years ago as a college athlete and into my adult years that I spent under eating and over-exercising only to see little change and have zero energy!
My coach went above and beyond to help me in this journey and has really changed my life for the better. I cannot recommend KJO enough!
"I found myself anxious over my diet and physique. Since working with Kasey … I am no longer "afraid of carbs/fats" I cannot thank her enough for educating me past social media fads and being a true coach and friend..."
"I am more confident, but most importantly, happier. I feel as though a weight has been lifted off my shoulders, and guilt associated with food is almost completely removed..."
"Over the course of the last few months, I have gained muscle mass and can even feel my body getting stronger. I have never been the strongest person in the room but I have finally gained the confidence to continue this journey..."
"I am SO thankful for the KJO Coaching program because I think it has really helped me stay on track during one of the most stressful times of my career!"
"I had no idea how little I was eating until I started tracking my macros and In the last two weeks I’m eating more and I’m more active my mental clarity Has also gone up..."
"Since starting with KJO Coaching I have increased my calories by around 400 per day and decreased my daily cardio..."
"At any point that I have had any question or concern, I always knew that I had a support system. That’s more than a coach, that’s a friend..."
I am happy that there is another way to go about things...
Laney has helped me out so much. I love that she is so positive and have a solution/suggestion for everything! Telling her that I am tired of tracking was hard because I didn’t want her to think I was giving up. So I am happy that there is another way to go about things!! I will definitely give the habit tracker a chance. I think this will help me, especially with having so much to do for school. I really appreciate her and all the help!! I am so happy with the decision to join KJO coaching.LEARN MORE ABOUT KJO COACHING PROGRAMS
