My name is Paula Thompson and I run KSFL Stockport. 

I have been a Franchisee since Kick Start Fat Loss started in January 2013. There were a number of reasons why I joined KSFL.
No 1 – I am a Fitness Instructor teaching various exercise classes and my clients were asking for dietary/nutritional advice and I wanted to offer an additional service but not sure how to do this.
No 2 – I was diagnosed with cervical cancer and once my treatment was over I started to look at my lifestyle which I thought wasn’t bad. 

I am a Fitness Instructor so I exercise and I thought I was eating the right foods ie low fat products, pasta, rice, bread I need those to give me energy – right? Dairy – great for my bones! I constantly snacked on fruit, dried fruit, nuts and seeds. Well they are a better snack than biscuits, aren’t they? I wasn’t a big coffee and tea drinker and I drank de-caf coffee 1or 2 cups a day, with skimmed milk so I couldn’t understand why I had no energy, always tired and grumpy. I felt I was shouting at my children and feeling miserable so I started researching on the internet and then I saw Rachel Holmes was launching KSFL. Over the years I have attended courses and gained my Fitness Pilates and Nutritional and Weight Management qualification with Rachel so I knew who she was and aspired to her. I thought WOW something different to what is on the market so I did the 28 day programme for myself and also to see if this was something my clients would be interested in. Now I felt I didn’t need to lose weight it was more health reasons for me but I lost 13 lbs and 15 inches and since I had my first child (almost 13 years ago) I got rid of my belly fat, you know that roll around the middle. OMG I was buzzing.

I noticed:-

I wasn’t as ratty with the kids, my mood had changed
I came off my iron tablets. I am on other medication due to the cancer that I take on a daily basis but now it is every other day.
I have tonnes more energy but I was still teaching the same amount of classes and doing the same things as normal.
I was sleeping through the night.

Using my experience I decided I wanted to support and help others, KSFL was the perfect platform to do this.

Paula runs a live club but wants to develop her online business programmes and is now offering 1 to 1 coaching. Paula is a busy single mum with two children and loves her job. She is constantly juggling her life and children and wants to take this side of the business forward.

Paula has seen great results with her clients over the last three years and is very proud of what they have achieved. She wants to offer a mixture of programmes that suits each individual. She knows what it is like to juggle a home, career and children so wants to offer her expertise to help to others in similar situations.

Have you changed your life around and want to inspire and coach others too?
