Before meeting Kim and Kalee, I was struggling with my fitness goals. I would start out strong, but I just didn’t stay on track. With their motivation and support, I have not only stayed on track myself, but now I’m helping others reach their fitness and health goals! I’ve never felt or looked better, and I love being a part of their coaching team!
Before working with Kim and Kalee, I felt guarded sharing my fitness journey and doubted my abilities as a coach. They have offered so many amazing training opportunities which have helped me step out of my comfort zone and build my confidence as a leader. Now, I’m a stronger coach not only for me but for my girls and Fit Fam!
Kim and Kalee Sorey are absolutely awesome! They gave me the confidence to become a coach and have been valuable mentors ever since. I strive to emulate the accepting and easy going approach that has made them wildly successful.
