Kim Graham


My name is Kim Graham. My health makeover began in 2012 when I started changing eating habits and made conscious efforts to correct unhealthy routines.  I immediately saw results of feeling better and having more energy. This began my quest to research the best way to a healthy lifestyle change by sorting through good and bad information. Over time, I shed almost 100 pounds of weight. I added exercise into my schedule in order to tone up. While I was hired at Fitness Forum front desk relations, I studied for a Group Exercise Certification and became a RIP instructor. My passion is to help people obtain their goals. I earned certificates in Holistic Nutrition and Health Coaching in order to help people get out of the rut I was in: unhealthy, overweight, unwell, unsatisfied, and tired of diets that do not give lasting results. Now I have also become a personal trainer, and I can confidently coach and encourage you to achieve your health goals.  I am strong, fit, healthy, and I feel better than I ever have in my life. You can too. No one is too old, too overweight, or too anything to get on a track to wellness and feeling better.
