Hello everyone and welcome to LKNTraining! My name is Jamie King and I live in the charming little town of Davidson, North Carolina, with my husband Jeff, our son Griffin, and our two dogs, Buffy and Elvis Costello.
I’ll start off by saying that I have many passions in life, but fitness is definitely my number one! I also love to cook, build things, work with others, and travel.
My Mission: To help others become comfortable and confident in their own skin, by learning to create a balanced and healthy lifestyle through exercise and nutrition.
WHY I BECAME A TRAINER:
Up until October, 2013 I had spent 9 years of my life teaching 6th grade language arts. Over time though, I realized that it was time to pursue my true passion, which is why I chose to become an ACSM certified personal trainer. The best part of my job, is that I not only get to work in the fitness industry, but I still get to teach, and work one on one with others; which are two things I absolutely love to do.
I also feel it’s important to share that I understand, at least based on my own experiences, that working out and setting goals can sometimes be a challenge, especially when you’re trying to do it on your own. I know that there will be days you’ll want to quit, or not get out of bed, but don’t give up! It’s all about the right mindset and if you’re determined, it will get done.
I use to be 155+ pounds myself, and just decided one day that I wanted to change. It definitely didn’t come easy and I had to put in a lot of hard work, but the transformation was worth it. I feel so much better about myself, both physically and mentally, which is why I continue to try to better myself. I’m always up for a good challenge, and when someone tells me I can’t do something, that just drives me harder to get it done!
I hope I can help motivate you to accomplish your goals! Remember that each and every one of us is amazing!
