When I started getting into Crossfit, I tried the Paleo diet but it was so restrictive that I had no energy and kept “cheating”. Over the fall and winter I stopped trying to diet and caved into almost daily trips to have margaritas and queso dip after workouts, which I figured was fine since all I ate for lunch was a salad and I did get a workout it. Well after not weighing myself for months, I got on the scale and was so embarrassed when I saw that I weighed over 160 pounds, which had NEVER happened in my life. I knew it was time to make a change and one that would work for my lifestyle.
When my coworker talked about Kelli and her flexible dieting, I knew that would be such a great fit for me- I just didn’t realize how good of a fit. Even though I’ve never met Kelli (as I live across the country), she is the most motivational person I know. Everytime I had a “bad week” of tracking, she’d light a fire under me to get my butt back in gear, which is EXACTLY what I needed. Along with losing the weight, my strength and endurance have increased so much since working with Kelli. My lifts in Crossfit have gone up (which is never what you hear about when losing weight). I hit a snatch above my body weight, deadlifted 320 pounds AND back squatted almost 300. Ontop of strength, running is now so much easier and I was able to set a personal record in a 5k last week. I’m so thankful to have Kelli as my nutritionist and I’m never going to look back.
Working with Kelli at KMF has changed my life I so many ways. First, her constant encouragement, personalization and maybe a little bit of necessary drill sergeanting have kept me on track!!! Second, learning about macro tracking has increased my knowledge so that I understand what I am doing and how it will affect my body! Finally, it has helped me transform my body into something I’m proud of and has given me so much more confidence. Thanks Kelli!
Kelli took me on as a client in January 2016. I was 6 months postpartum and my weight loss had plateaued. She took the time to really understand my life, my habits, my routine and my body type. She not only took me on my first reverse diet in order to repair my damaged metabolism, but she took the time to educate me about food, myths, nutrient timing and all the factors that contribute to success in reaching goals. My results have been astounding thus far and I have only just begun. I’ve seen physical results both aesthetically and in strength. Overall, the one thing that has changed my life more than anything is my relationship with food. I’m not afraid of carbs anymore. I’m not guilty when I eat desserts. I’m excited to eat and the variety I have been enjoying has been the biggest success. I started to believe that I could only get into great shape if only ate chicken, brown rice and broccoli for the rest of my life. Being educated on macro tracking has truly enhanced my life and I am so thankful Kelli has the gifts she pours into so many people.
Tracking macros has completely changed how I view fueling my body to perform and function. It’s a lifestyle change but having Kelli on my side is a huge portion of my success, her knowledge is AMAZING and her tough love keeps me right on track. I never feel deprived, I can enjoy the foods I love and continue to see my strength improve and body change in the process. I truly believe in this lifestyle and I would HIGHLY recommend Kelli to anyone looking for serious results.
I have been working with Kelli Michelle for 10 weeks and have dropped 13 pounds. I regularly do Crossfit workouts and have maintained strength on all of my Olympic lifts. What has been amazing is my substantial progress in my body weight movements on pullups, burpees etc… and increased speed on runs; both long distance and short range sprints. I accomplished my first ever bar muscle up in the process as well.
Kelli’s guidance in the process has been amazing. She provides me with frequent feedback on adjusting my macro-nutrients to support my gym performance and is incredibly supportive.
Kelli makes it look easy, throwing out numbers of Proteins/Fats/ Carbs, like she just makes it up in her head, but a few weeks into working with her, you soon realize that there are years of knowledge and tons of science behind every little adjustment she makes and that it works phenomenally well!!!
Since following flex dieting I have leaned out considerably, I have more energy and I’ve kept my strength high. I love that I don’t even have to think about waiting for a cheat meal because with a little creativity, I can treat myself every single day! I love that each day I learn something new about food and about my body. This is definitely something I can continue doing for the rest of my life. Going forward with the knowledge that I can eventually be off my meds completely is so incredibly motivating! I’m excited to see what my future holds!! Thank you, Kelli, for all of the pep talks, support and encouragement along the way! My life is forever changed because of you!
Training with her makes you realize that the possibilities are limitless. She is so passionate about her clients and helping us whether it be through diet, exercise or just responding to our manic emails! She has helped me to rediscover myself and I’m proud to say I love how I look and who I am and I know I’m not even close to hitting the ceiling! She is able to tune into her clients so quickly and tailor everything perfectly to make your life enjoyable and motivate you to reach your goals in a very short amount of time! I am so thankful to have her in my life!! Because of her my new mantra is Work. Sweat. Achieve. Don’t stop until you’re proud!!! Thanks Kelli!!
Kelli Michelle introduced me to Flexible Dieting at a very young age of 49, when I thought I was fit and in shape. It’s been about 1 year now and because of her leadership, I am 15 pounds lighter, and what an improvement in my physical appearance. I was in shape, compared to most, but not the in shape that
Kelli can take a person to. Bottom line, I’m a business owner and believe in results, so if you want results in weight loss, physical appearance or simply a healthier lifestyle, Kelli Michelle is a must.
I was a notorious binge eater; I would eat so much at each meal that my stomach would hurt. I am not fat by any means but I definitely LOVE food. After finding and now working with Kelli for over a year, I use macro counting to fuel myself to be in tip-top performance shape, BUT most importantly, to keep myself from overindulging when I KNOW I don’t necessarily NEED that much food. MACRO COUNTING IS THE GREATEST!!!
Kelli Michelle is a hardworking, dedicated and enthusiastic trainer. She goes above and beyond to help her clients meet their goals. I have seen great results from her program, I went from a size 10 to a size 2. Kelli has taught me how to lead a healthy and nutritious lifestyle.
I was honestly a little skeptical at first, but working with Kelli is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made… I was never fat, but had some weight I wanted to lose and no matter how little I ate or how much I worked out, I just could NOT figure out how to get it off! After about two months of letting Kelli work her magic on me and eating what I felt like was a LOT of food [(including ice cream and pizza :)], I had dropped almost 15 pounds and was leaner than I’ve ever been! As a CrossFit athlete, my overall performance has also gone to the next level while working with her over the past year. Kelli is the perfect mix of grace and tough love I need to keep me accountable and help me reach my goals!
After I had my first baby, I was never able to lose all the baby weight. I tried everything that had worked for me in the past, but nothing would take off that extra weight without affecting my abulity to nurse my baby. After baby #2 I knew I needed to try something different, and that’s when a friend referred me to KMF. I am a very busy working mom, and feared that macro tracking would be too difficult and just one more thing to do. It was difficult at first, but after a couple weeks it became second nature. It’s so great to have the flexibility to eat the foods I want, and It’s easy to fit them in to my routine. Kelli is always quick to reply to my questions and is very helpful in daily planning. Weekly check ins with Kelli are very valuable. She always seems to know when I need encouragement and when I need tough love. I’m so thrilled with my progress and so grateful for KMF!
