Hi, I’m Kim!
Hi, I’m Kim Danger. I live in Southern Minnesota with my husband and two kids (my daughter is 16 and my son is 13). I am an author, blogger, and social media junkie. Besides fitness, I also love cooking, fashion, travel, music and photography.
My fitness journey really didn’t begin until I turned 40 (call me a late-bloomer). In the past few years, I have gone from barely being able to run a mile to finishing my first half-marathon at age 44. I now also eat clean, unprocessed foods 80% of the time (I’m human, too) and am training for my first full marathon in June 2016. None of this happened overnight. It has come over the past few years by incorporating easy, manageable changes into my lifestyle. I’m also now a certified PiYo/P90X/Country Heat instructor.
But for me, my biggest transformation story has come through personal development. I encourage my challengers to read, listen to podcasts or audiobooks at least 10-15 minutes a day. Fitness truly is a mental game. I’m a big believer in that, and that’s how I help my challengers.
My Challenges and Vibe
What I love most about our team’s challenge groups are the personal connections we form. Throw a group of strangers together in an environment where it’s OK to not be perfect, to admit to your mistakes and be REAL – but feel love and positivity – and you have a truly amazing thing! SO many of my prior challengers have gone on to be coaches on my team and real-life friends.
Fitness as a Lifestyle
I have a busy family and love to live life, so I realize the importance of balancing wellness with fun. For me, healthy living and fitness is a way of life, not a diet. I would never be able to stick to a plan where beer and wine weren’t allowed, and I don’t expect you to either!
Together, we’ll figure out this thing called fitness in a way that works for you. Moderation is key, and getting right back at it when you have an off day. Trust me, I have them all the time! The key is getting to a good place in your mindset where your good days outnumber your bad days, and you don’t let your negative self-talk interfere with progress.
I’m not perfect… I get HANGRY when I don’t eat enough, leave dirty dishes in the sink overnight, drop the F-bomb all too frequently and let my kids watch R-rated movies. However, I strive to be a better version of myself every day.
This thing called life is about progress, not perfection. I want the same for my challengers. It just makes life more fun. Never stop growing! I truly love living life and would chose experiences over things any day (well, unless those things are boots… 😉. Don’t let your pursuit perfection get in the way of being kick-ass awesome.
