Special Encore Presentation: Ignite your internal spark to create a balanced life of the body, mind, and spirit!
August 4, 2014
Hosted by Chad Austin
What are you passionate about? What gets you excited to get out of bed everyday? Joining me on Be Fit…For Life this week is personal trainer, nutrition coach, and athlete Kim Schaper. Kim has a true passion to help others achieve not only their physical goals but help ignite that "internal spark" within each of us to create a balanced life of the body, mind and spirit. Kim has a unique story to share with the world and one that is truly rare. As a current athlete and woman of top physical fitness she wants people to know that it was not easy. With her own struggles of an exhausting eating disorder ranging from anorexia to obesity she can relate with the likes of these individuals and everyone in between. "It's not all about the external side of us. We have to feel confident and content within ourselves. The other stuff is just fluff.”

This show is designed to help you make fitness a priority! Everyone sees how important fitness is in living a healthy life, but many people still fail to make it a priority. Most of us have very busy schedules. Some have kids at home who are always involved in activities. Some have to travel a lot for work. We use all of these obstacles as excuses to eat unhealthy meals and skip workouts. We put fitness off because we think we are too busy in the present, and we tell ourselves that we will get to it when we have more time. The problem is that the day we are waiting for, when we will have more time to dedicate to getting in better shape, will most likely never come. The only way to begin living a healthier life is to make fitness a priority regardless of how busy you are. It won’t always be easy, but it is a fight that anyone can win. All you have to do is make a decision to do it! Be Fit for Life will help you win the fight against your excuses!
My name is Chad Austin. I am a personal trainer and fitness camp instructor based in Overland Park, Kansas. I have been a fitness professional since 2003. I taught high school Physical Education, Health, Strength and Conditioning, and coached wrestling from 2003 to 2006. I then found my true passion as a personal trainer. I first worked for a well-known company, as a personal trainer for four years, and then in 2010 Chad Austin Fitness was born. I have certifications from the National Academy of Sports Medicine in Personal Training, Corrective Exercise, and Sports Performance. I am also an Insanity Certified Instructor from Beach Body. Since I began working in fitness, I have attended seminars and conventions all over the United States that have featured some of the world’s best Fitness Professionals! I’ve always believe that in order to be the best you must learn from the best!
My definition of Fitness is to constantly strive to be better than you were the day before, the week before, and the month before, in regards to your physical and mental health! Anything is possible in fitness when you take the right progressions to achieve it. I am a big advocate of the law of attraction, which simply states that you attract into your life whatever you think about. My clients learn right away that the phrase, I CAN’T DO IT is never allowed unless it is followed by the word YET. I am passionate about being a fitness professional, love being able to inspire change every day!
