Meet Kami, the founder and creator of The Kalon Life. I had the privilege of falling on the floor in front of her before sitting in my chair (like a normal human) to interview her about her company. Yes, I fell flat on my butt… in public, in front of someone I was truly meeting for the first time! Picture this, I walk into this wonderfully trendy coffee shop (Ascension Coffee) in a beautiful building (the Crescent), all sweaty from walking through the humidity from my parking spot four blocks away (I miss the Arizona dry heat). I am flustered because I had just gone to the other location and Kami had kindly given me directions to the correct location. There are business men and women enjoy their morning coffee and chatting with friends, I walk in wearing my favorite pink dress, and as I sit the chair slips out from under me. And, before you know it, I’m on the ground. Yes, fully, completely, flat on the ground. In my defense the chair only had three legs so it’s just asking for a disaster. I just sat there in shock as Kami so sweetly checked to see if I was alright. Then, she proceeds to tell me her most embarrassing moment and I instantly feel better. The cocktail I ordered probably helped a little bit too.
The Kalon Life means “beauty that is more than skin deep”, and I can tell you without a doubt that this name fits Kami herself, and I loved getting to talk to her about how she got started. Keep reading to hear about The Kalon Life and how it could be the answer to your fitness quest.
WHEN DID YOU ESTABLISH YOUR BUSINESS AND HOW DID YOU GET STARTED? WHAT IS YOUR MAIN GOAL IN SERVING BRIDES?
Starting Kami’s business was definitely a personal journey. She did not grow up an athlete, instead she started in the fashion industry and later became certified as a personal trainer by Dr. Cooper, who some may know as the man to come up with “aerobics”. He is kind of a big deal. It wasn’t until Kami and her sister decided to run a 1/2 marathon did she realize how much she loved fitness. Prior to running the half, she maybe had run two miles, but by no means was she the girl out running every day. She saw how empowering that feeling of accomplishment was, how amazing her body felt and she wanted to help others feel that much better! She hopes to help other women and brides to experience the same euphoric feeling she did and to feel good about themselves.
IF A BRIDE BOOKED YOUR SERVICES, WHAT COULD SHE EXPECT HER PACKAGE TO INCLUDE? HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD SHE BOOK WITH YOU?
Kami offers a miriad of services. She offers personal training sessions, and also gives some nutrition consulting, recipe suggestions, and tips to help her clients. She holds her clients accountable with daily checklists and calendars, as well as a beneficial punishment when she meets with you again if everything is not finished. For example, you may run a little bit if you have not finished your checklist.
WHAT IS ONE THING THE READERS MAY BE SURPRISED TO LEARN ABOUT WHAT YOU DO?
Since Kami started in the fashion industry, she also offers styling services. She will get you fit for your events as well as help you look like your best self! She will style for bridal showers, engagement sessions, day after sessions, and more. She uses all of her passions and talents to help your internal beauty shine through on the outside!
HOW DO YOU MAKE SURE TO CUSTOMIZE YOUR SERVICES TO EACH INDIVIDUAL BRIDE?
The first time you meet with Kami, you will be given a baseline assessment so you are able to measure progress. She takes pictures and measurements. Then, when she gives you workouts, they will be customized to building up your weakness and enhancing your strengths. Workouts will be different so you don’t become bored and they don’t become routine.
IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH THE READERS?
Kami is married to the first man she every fell in love with, he was her first boyfriend and together they had their first kiss. They have two kitties which they LOVE named Catiness and Hobbes and you may see her out on the town enjoying sushi or rose! If you would like more information or you would like to contact Kami please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for listening and I hope you have a wonderful day!
