I’m Kim Bloom. My mission is to inspire, motivate and coach you to be fit and healthy and help you love yourself, inside and out.

I also teach you how to find balance around your fitness routine and your life.

A natural athlete and Certified Fitness Trainer, I’m uniquely qualified to help you in this regard. Why? Because my own road to ‘fitness sanity’ has seen its share of ups and downs, and along the way I’ve learned a trick or two (or ten) about what really works.

I began my athletic career as a toddler with a talent for gymnastics.  I trained, competed, and excelled in the sport throughout my childhood and teens, until a back injury during my junior year of high school cut short my dreams of continuing to compete in college. I was devastated.

I knew I’d been born with a gift: a great gymnast not only needs strength, stamina and flexibility, but she needs to be mentally strong, focused, and FEARLESS (considering she’s flying through the air and flipping around). I’d been born with all of these traits, and suddenly my gift was taken away from me.

Now what was I supposed to do with my life?

My self-esteem plummeted. I felt lost and confused, and instead of turning to another sport or a new intellectual pursuit, I turned to partying and eating poorly. My body had betrayed me with an injury (or so I thought), and I began to betray it right back.

During my freshman year in college, I stopped paying attention to my diet and quickly gained the obligatory “freshman 15” (which, for someone who’d always been 100 pounds, was devastating!).

The downward spiral continued from there. For the next few years I struggled with eating disorders and addictions that left me overweight, tired, full of self-loathing, and more hopeless than ever.

In the summer before my junior year of college, I had a “moment of clarity.” Sometimes it takes another person who cares about you to show you what you can’t even see yourself. Fortunately, I had a friend in my life who did just that. One night, she called me out on my self-destructive behavior and told me that it actually wasn’t ‘normal’ to loathe myself so much.

In that moment, I realized that life is too short and too precious to waste time abusing one’s body, and too long and too much FUN not to spend it in a state of health and well-being.  I became committed to working on myself both mentally and physically, and my life started to turn around.

Over the past two decades, I’ve run five marathons (including NYC!), rediscovered a love of swimming, and taken on biking and weight lifting. I’m now an avid cyclist, a budding triathlete and in the gym a few times a week for strength training, while also participating in any outdoor activity I can.

I also take care to nourish myself with whole, healthy foods, knowing that if I reward my body with what it really needs, it will reward me right back with strength, energy, and stamina. (And yes, a trim waistline and a tight butt!)

Now, in my 40s and feeling as though I’m in my mid-20s, my life is SPECTACULAR. Not only am I in great shape on the outside, but I’m whole and healthy on the inside.

I also have a life beyond fitness- with great relationships and a business I’m proud of.

Along the way, I’ve learned that change doesn’t show up on the outside until it’s had a chance to grow on the inside. In essence, I’ve seen that the only way to ‘bloom’ into the very best version of YOU is to plant a seed of clarity, confidence and consistency within.

And I’ve found that I have another gift... a gift I never dreamed of back in the days when I was a competitive gymnast.

That gift is the ability to understand other people’s unique challenges, really ‘get’ where they’re coming from, and create customized exercise and eating plans that work for THEM (no ‘one size fits all’ around here!).

I am passionate about helping you create a body and a life you love. If you’re ready to end the struggle with your fitness routine, your body, and your health, contact me and LET’S GET STARTED!
