Hi! I’m Kerry Walsh, founder of Fitness 4 U. I became a certified personal trainer in my early 40’s, quit my corporate job, started my own business and never looked back! The only regret I have is that I didn’t start 20 years earlier!
Just like most people I have my own fitness journey with ups and downs…tried every fad diet and program out there looking for that quick fix, only to get the same result over and over…YO YO!
I will never forget I was in my early 30’s the first time I saw a picture of myself and did not recognize “me”. I was mortified! That is not at all the body I saw in the mirror. I was at my all time heaviest, in a terrible marriage and fighting depression.
Somehow I mustered up the energy and confidence (since I had none!) to hire a trainer and get myself in a better place…mentally and physically. Over the next 10 years I worked with 2 personal trainers that truly changed my life. They helped guide me with my goals and provided me a plan to put into action! They held me accountable and taught me healthy habits that I could take with me moving forward in my fitness journey.
Through diet and exercise I found self-confidence that had been stripped away, muscles that really did exist and a new career! I wanted to help women just like me find themselves again, feel strong and sexy and live the healthy life style they deserved!
Thinking about all the health issues that run in my family and realizing my chances of being affected are pretty high, I began learning about nutrition and the affects is how on our body and our health. I believe most families have a long line of many health issues and with a proper exercise and nutrition program most of these health issues can be prevented or at the very least subsided. My family has had colon cancer, breast cancer, heart disease, Lupus, Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), hypothyroidism and depression just to name a few.
Now here I am doing what I love and loving what I do! I turned my passion into a career and my goal is to encourage, inspire and coach women to live a healthy lifestyle and achieve their fitness goals! You deserve the very best for yourself and for your family and I would be honored to work with you!
