I have been absolutely blown away by the personal satisfaction I have gained from working with Kate and her BYWK programs! Fitness is often characterized by outsiders as a selifsh endeavor. How many times have we been made to feel guilty for taking time to work on ourselves, either by that nagging voice we all have in the back of our heads or by those around us? Well, my experence with you has proven to me that this is so worthwhile! And, while it does require lifestyle changes, they often have a very beautiful butterfly effect. Your dedication to reaching your goals, and your progress toward them, has motivated me in ways that I didn’t foresee. Kate has brought together women from all over the country – and even in other countries – an united us under a common goal. The way they encourage and build eachother up is inspiring. But truthfully, I can’t say I am completely surprised at the positive environment within the group, because I’ve been thriving with the encouragement of Coach Kate for the past 3 years!
