Staying Fit No Matter Your Age | An Interview with Kim Lipe

So it’s time to accept the inevitable: you’re getting older, you’re gaining weight, you’re losing your edge, and that’s just the way it is, right?


Tune in to my interview with the amazing Kim Lipe, founder of Fit Bodies by Kim. At the age of 45, she looked at a family picture and hardly recognized herself. It hit her hard. And she decided to make a change. Kim started working with a personal trainer and soon discovered she needed to radically change the way she ate. Thanks to her dogged determination, within a few years, Kim lost 30 pounds and went from 30% body fat to 12%!

Today at 53, Kim is a grandmother—who just happens to compete in bikini and figure competitions! She’s also a personal trainer who runs a gym out of her home and currently sees more than 80 clients every week. Kim’s goal is to help women of all ages live happier, healthier lives.

Listen in for her inspiring story of transformation! More than that, she shares a wealth of great insight on diet and exercise!
