I can honestly say that joining RTSF was one of the best things I could have done, for both my physical and mental health. Kalim has taught me to no longer label foods as “good” or “bad”, and that eating a donut or enjoying a night out with friends, will NOT cause fat gain. He has helped me completely change my mindset about nutrition and training. I no longer need to spend over 2 hours in the gym every day, or feel extremely guilty if I miss a day of training.
Ultimately, Kalim has helped me build a healthy relationship with food, which I was worried would never happen for me. I can’t say enough good things about RTSF!
Location/Hometown: Edmonton, AB
Bio: I graduated from the University of Alberta in 2016 with my Bachelor of Kinesiology. I am currently working at a Medical Clinic just outside of Edmonton doing a variety of tasks including occupational testing, pre-employment testing, and ergonomic assessments. I am continuously taking new courses within my field to help broaden my knowledge.
Fitness Journey: I was a competitive soccer player and cheerleader growing up. However, I experienced a knee injury in 2012 which required me to give up both of those activities. I had to find another way to stay active, and thereby found my love for the gym. Since then, I have competed in 4 bikini competitions and am now an ABBA nationally qualified bikini competitor.
How is Ripped to Shredz different than any other types of coaching:
After my most recent competition, I reached out to Kalim in hopes that he would be able to help me reverse diet out of my prep. I had always struggled finding balance after my previous competitions and wanted to do things right this time.
