I hired Diva Squad Fitness after doing research, seeing past clients, and reading the good reviews. I improved my confidence, self-control, and how I look and I am most proud that I mentally was able to get through a contest prep. The greatest thing about working with Diva Squad is that Coach K can be contacted at anytime and she responds in a timely manner. This was the best experience ever! – Sheena R. / West Palm Beach
Before Diva Squad Fitness, I had mostly had trouble with consistency. I would lose 10 pounds, and then gain it back, and then lose it again, etc. I had trouble staying on a program long enough to see consistent progress. I think that I was hesitant to sign up at at first because I was going back and forth between wanting to hire someone and wanting to try again on my own. I think I was a little wedded to the idea of doing everything on my own until I finally realized that having professional help might be the key to success. I came to a point where I realized that I needed help reach my goals. I had lost weight on my own before, but I was struggling with recreating that success. I talked to a friend about how she got in shape for her bikini show, and she mentioned that having a coach was very helpful for accountability. So she recommended me to Karen! I’m no longer shy about reaching out for help when needed.
I’ve learned a ton about what has made my progress continue as a result of this program: the meal prepping was especially helpful as well as focusing on intensity of exercise instead of just length. I liked the fact that Karen’s program was detailed and thorough. She was also very encouraging and patient with me when I asked 8943843 questions, haha. Losing fat and inches has definitely been a big benefit. I’ve also found that meal prepping is essential to losing weight. In the past, I always struggled with staying on my meal plan because I would have to make decisions all day long about whether something fit my macros or not. But with meal prepping, I only have to think about that once per week when I cook. That has been invaluable in terms of giving me the key habit that I’ll need to keep losing weight. I’ve also gained a lot more confidence in myself since this is the longest I’ve ever stayed on a weight loss program. So I feel like I’ve reached a new personal development milestone!
If you are thinking about joining Diva Squad Fitness, I would say to go for it. Having a coach/someone in your corner is more valuable than you might think. It helps to be able to ask questions to someone with a lot of experience like Karen, and it also helps to have someone pushing you and holding you accountable.
I’m most proud of the fact that I’ve stuck with the program, especially for this long. Three months isn’t a very long time, but this is the longest that I’ve been consistent with a diet and exercise program. I’m at a point now where taking more than 1 day off of working out per week or not meal prepping feels odd to me, so I take that as a good sign that my consistency these past 12 weeks has provided me with new habits that will help me reach my final goal weight and body. I finally feel ‘disciplined’ with my body, which is a great feeling. I feel like I’m in control of what I can do with my body, and I feel like I can carve it into anything I want given time and consistency. – Anonymous, Los Angeles, CA
So I hired Karen to be my coach January 1st of this year which ended up being one of the best decisions of my life! Pic on the left was 200lbs January 1st and pic on the right was 203lbs December 22nd. Karen is absolutely amazing as a coach! She has so much knowledge about dieting and working out! No matter what obstacle I was having along the way she always had an answer to the problem! She is kind,loving, compassionate and truly cares about the success and health of all her clients. I strongly urge anybody looking for a coach to reach out to her and hire her today! Men this goes for you too you don’t have to go hire a guy just because your a guy! Karen knows how to get results if your a male or female! Don’t get caught up in hiring the biggest freak of a bodybuilder out there because I can guarantee they are not better than Karen! It’s been an amazing year and I can never express my gratitude to Karen for all she has helped me achieve! – Tom P. White Plains, NY
I am so glad I decided to pose with Karen. She not only helped me with posing, but with the entire package – advising me on suit selection, shoe choice (and she was right!), hair extensions, makeup, tanning. I previously took posing lessons from a male coach, and I am so so glad I decided to get Karen’s female perspective. She has competed in every division, so I knew she would be so knowledgeable! I placed first in 3 out of 4 classes, and I know that my package would not have been nearly as great without Karen’s input on my overall look. – Becky R. / Ft. Lauderdale, FL
I have been working with Karen since January 2017 and can’t believe the changes she has helped me and others make. Karen is nothing short of outstanding in all aspects of life but especially when it comes to coaching her clients.
When I started with Karen, I was 198lbs. I worked out 2x a day, had recently run the NYC marathon and was a Spartan Race 3x trifecta finisher but still struggled with weight. I had been heavy almost my entire adult life and lacked confidence because of my physical appearance but just didn’t know how to change on my own. My husband convinced me in 2017 to enter Blackstone Labs Beat PJ transformation competition and hire Karen at the same time. It was the best decision. Karen helped me drop 28lbs in just 12 weeks which was so amazing but on top of it all, she helped me win the Beat PJ competition and win $5,000.
After the competition was over I rehired Karen and just kept dropping more and more weight each week. I loved my food and it was so nice to have all my workouts planned out for me and changed regularly so I didn’t get stuck in the rut of doing the same routine all the time.
At the end on my 2nd 12 week Program, Karen started helping me prep for my first bikini competition- never in a million years did I think this was a possibility. On show day I just couldn’t believe how far I had come and loved the experience of the training going into it. I recently competed again and love how involved Karen is as a coach- I feel like I have her full attention whenever I need it, she genuinely cares about her clients and really wants to help them be successful in achieving their goals. Karen believed in me and what was possible long before I believed in myself
– I highly recommend Diva Squad Fitness for anyone that struggles or just doesn’t want to have to plan out their food for the day and workouts (makes life so much easier). Many of my friends and family also hired Karen with amazing results! Honestly the best decision ever and brought a truly inspiring and amazing person into my life! – Andrea P. / White Plains, NY
