"I have been trying various weight loss plans over the years without much success. I just completed my first 6 weeks of Refine You and am amazed at my results and how easy the program is to follow. I lost 8 pounds and 8.37" in 6 weeks and I feel great! I have discovered that in the past I have been working out at too high of an intensity and not eating the right mix of macros to fuel my body. This way of eating and exercise is not a diet and will be very easy to maintain as a lifestyle. I am looking forward to my next 6 weeks."
I have always been an avid runner and exerciser, but hit a plateau and wasn't seeing results even though I was busting my butt! I have learned that it really is about what you eat, when you eat and that overdoing it with workouts actually can be detrimental. I have lost both weight (8 lbs) and multiple inches, while also building lean, toned muscle.
I love that I get very prescriptive guidance on what to eat, when to eat, and customized workouts for each day of the program. I don't feel deprived (and actually now eat foods that I would have strayed from previously) and love the workouts!
Being a personal trainer and avid runner I always had the workouts under control but there was a missing piece. Intermittent fasting, carb cycling and considering macros was it for me.
It is all about WHAT you eat and WHEN you eat it and not over doing it with hours of workouts. This program changes your body from being a sugar burner to a fat burner and gives you so much energy!
The six weeks helped me totally refine the way I eat and improve the way I work out. This program has been instrumental and I'm so impressed with the changes I saw early on and continuing until the end.
The highlights for me:
- Having a mentor review what I eat daily and offer encouragement
- Less belly fat already (I was 3 months postpartum so this was a big deal for me!)
- An easy-to-follow DETAILED workout schedule that challenged me in ways I wasn't used to
I have recommended this program to all my friends and coworkers because it truly works!
I lost 10 lbs and 1-2 inches off all my waist, chest, and butt measurements.
This has truly been one of the most effective programs I've done thus far! As a fitness instructor I'm always looking for great programs to suggest to my clients that ask me what else they can do besides the working out component! This program would be one I would recommend to anyone! I was looking to get more lean and hoping to lose those last 5-7 pounds I've been holding onto since my 3rd child! I am on my way to getting there! The results I've seen in the 1st 6 weeks were way more than I expected! I feel better, have more energy and this program is very doable for a busy mom on the go! I think after another round I may be in better shape than before I had children! I then hope to maintain this program as a part of my life and not make it about a diet, more of a lifestyle change for me!
“Prior to starting this program, I was participating in barre, Pilates and Shred classes about 5 days a week. While I enjoyed those workouts, I was excited about trying something new along with a different type of eating plan. I actually felt that I was eating more on this eating plan, mostly by trying to add more protein to my diet. I could tell within 2 weeks that the program was working. My clothes were fitting better and friends were telling me that I looked skinnier and more toned. The workouts were very clear and easy to follow and the nutirtion worked well for me. Using "my fitness pal" to track my food was very simple and much more helpful then I expected. I could see where my percentages were as the day went on and eat accordingly. I really enjoyed the program, got great results, and plan to continue with it.”
I had reached an all time high on weight and needed to do something. This program worked from the start for me. Lost 23 lbs and 2 pant sizes in 7 weeks. All the resources Kim provided and the daily feedback on macros were great. I was not hungry as there were many good recipes and ways to plan meals for each week. The workouts were a nice complement to the plan and generally took 30 minutes of less. The program didn’t tell me what to eat but taught me how to use foods/meals I liked to be able to meet the carb/protein/fat goals for the day. Since finishing the program I am still continuing with it and still losing weight!
"To be honest, at first I was skeptical. I have tried so many things in the past and have spent a lot of money doing so. I have done other programs, bought expensive shakes, and I was hesitant to spend even more money on yet another program. On the other hand, I was desparate and frustrated. Frustrated in all my hard work and not getting reasonable results. So, I had done a lot of research in different programs before coming to this one. I felt that so many programs out there right now are so absolute in things you can't eat. I wanted something that I could maintain reasonably without the constant guilt every time I ate a non-approved item! I reached out to Kim prior to joining the program with my concerns and questions. She got back to me right away and I felt confidant that she wasn't just someone following a pre-designed program from someone else. She knows her stuff! I signed up, and I am so glad that I did! In one round of the program I lost 12 inches, and I feel better than I have in years! I am sleeping better, I have more energy, I am less hungry, and I know that I can go out and have my pizza occasionally without the guilt! This program teaches you how to lose the fat, live a healthy life, and still be able to enjoy foods that might not be the best for you, but that you will still probably eat occasionally anyway. If you are at all wondering if this program will work or if it is worth the cost, take it from me, IT IS!"
I would highly recommend the FAT Loss Program. I had amazing results in just 7 weeks. I dropped 9 pounds and 17 inches. The program was easy to follow and the workouts varied so I didn't get bored. I felt myself getting stronger every week. Kim was so knowledgeable and supportive. She had so many great resources to help you stay on track and be successful." Update 1 week after completing the program: "I feel great. I am still doing the program. I lost 2.4 this week!! So I'm down 11.6 total."
This is not a program requiring you to drink a shake, take a pill, and purchase a product. When you sign up, Kim gives you a questionnaire to complete. She then places you in a group based upon your answers. Each week, she sends you a packet of detailed workouts for you to follow. You do NOT need a gym membership. She provides instruction on how to change your macros goals in My Fitness Pal because these numbers change every day. She provides an at home workout packet and a gym workout packet. She is not providing you with a complete meal plan but she does provide you with examples of foods you should be eating each day. She does give you a list of foods you should be avoiding, period. She provides feedback and monitors your macro counts. You are carb cycling, intermittent fasting, actively recovering and above all REFINING YOU!
My experience with Refine YOU has been awesome. In 4 weeks I have more energy, sleep better and can see a change in my body. My body is leaner and my clothes fit better. It takes hard work and dedication but is totally worth it!
I wanted to be in better shape for my daughter's wedding on June 10th. I've lost 8 lbs., 3 inches in my waist, and 1-2 inches in my arms and legs! I'm so proud of my accomplishments and will continue this lifestyle.
