Just like anything new you have to learn to walk before you can run. During this 90-day lifestyle challenge, I help you learn the basics of nutrition and we build off that each week, mindset around food and your workouts, break through self-sabatoge, practice self love and worth, as well as, at home or in gym workouts.

I had been doing crossfit for a few years and felt that I had hit a bit of a plateau. I wasn’t improving in the areas that I wanted to improve in and I felt that I wasn’t getting any closer to my goals. When I saw that Poise Programs was taking new clients I jumped at the opportunity and started the very next day.
One of my goals that I had set was to increase my back squat, and within the first two months (three weeks of which were spent laying in bed with some kind of flu-plague) I was able to increase my back squat by just under 20%. Poise Programs are so well done that even after pushing myself hard in the gym, my body is not sore the next day and I am ready for the next work out. The nutrition and the workout programs combined have pushed my performance to levels that I have never seen before. As a former Varsity Rugby player, I can say that today at 37 years old I am in the best shape of my life, without a doubt and I would run circles around the 24 year old me. If you are a couch potato, an athlete, someone who just wants to get fit, Poise Programs will tailor everything to you and your goals. Don’t wait another second, sign up and become the best you there ever was.

“I have been working remotely with Kendra for just about 2 and a half years now (as of Jan 2019). I initially started remote training because I was bored with workout videos and didn’t have the knowledge to come up with my own workouts. At that time I was in a major energy and motivation rut and Kendra helped me through that. The work wasn’t easy, but she made it manageable and gave just the right amount of push to allow me to progress but not so much that I wanted to give up.
Two years later, I am much more motivated and work outs are much more intense. Even when I have a day or week that the energy just isn’t there, I have the willpower now to push through and get the work done. I’ve been learning that every day won’t be an increase or a PR and that is OK.
It’s been Kendra that helped me realize this. Even though her role is to design personalized workouts, she does so much more than that. Her constructive feedback and genuine desire to see people succeed are what makes her stand above.
I chose to exercise for myself, my own wellbeing. However, I have noticed something interesting lately. It is one thing for someone who only sees you now and again to notice you look different, but it is a whole other view when someone who sees you nearly every day starts to notice the changes. In the last few months I have had people close to me point out the muscle I have gained and the changes in my body. This means a lot because change is not instant or noticeable daily. I think this is an important point to stress – change takes time.
Sure, I saw physical changes in my first year with Kendra.
But it’s been the last 6 months that I have really noticed change in my overall body. That is a year and a half into training and I believe I still have so much further I can go.
Trust the process, trust your coach, put in the work and you will not be disappointed!”
I have been with Poise Programs for approximately one year, and to say I love Poise Programs understatement. I started my fitness journey at Crossfit Poise and really enjoyed it, but given the distance I always struggled with consistency. Once my career as a Paramedic started it became even more difficult to make it in to train in a class setting given the long unpredictable hours and unknown schedule of the job. I made the decision to further my career and head back to school in the fall of 2015, where it became unmanageable to attend any Crossfit classes at all! A few months in to school, I could feel the negative impacts of not training. I knew I needed to make a change! I contacted Kendra at Poise Programs and explained my situation. Kendra suggested I may benefit from the new Remote Training Poise Programs was now offering! I was skeptical at first but knew I needed to jump in with two feet and trust the experts! Kendra worked with the equipment I had available to me , and made some affordable suggestions that would beneficial to add to what I already had at home. We discussed workouts that would be manageable with my schedule and most importantly, personal goals I had! DK Programs would send my workouts every week, which would include specific details, and instructions on how to complete the workout. I had to record and submit my workouts which held me accountable for my own progress. DK Programs would provide feedback and suggestions for improvements at the end of each week! They were always providing encouragement and frequently checking in to ensure I was on track! The workouts were manageable yet challenging and focused on helping me reach my goals! In the beginning I set goals that I never thought I would reach so quickly!! Poise Programs has allowed me to be able complete strict Pull-ups (which has been a goal of mine for years), stay consistent, increase my overall muscle composition, and set personal records on ALL of my lifts!! Most importantly, Poise Programs has improved my self confidence, my mental well being, and it has shown me hard work and dedication really does pay off! I don’t just recommend Poise Programs, I encourage it! I promise you will look back on your own personal journey with Poise Programs and wish you would have started sooner!!
I’ve always been an active person both in and out of the gym as well as a healthy eater. For months now, I’ve done research on macro counting, different types of eating, calorie deficit and goal setting. In setting my 2016 goals, I decided that I needed to outsource my nutrition and reached out to Kendra and so our friendship began. Kendra and I touch base multiple times a week through email and although she don’t live near each other, it’s been an easy program to follow.
Since January 18th, 2016, Kendra has been training me remotely to help me reach my goals. Essentially, weight loss is not my primary goal however, toning, gaining body mass, maximizing my workouts and hitting more PR’s is. The transition into changing my eating style was fairly easy with proper planning and I’ve been successfully able to follow this for 10 months now and I anticipate this as a new lifestyle change. I don’t cook anything different for my family which makes this program beneficial to all. I’ve lost 9.6 lbs, 11.25″, hit numerous PR’s and my workouts have intensified tremendously.
I can feel my body changing and my family and friends have noticed these changes as well. I’m far from where I want to be but that much closer with Kendra’s guidance which has been invaluable.
I have been with Poise for 7 months and I can say without doubt the best instruction and program quality I have ever received. I have been working out for many years and tried several different training methods in pursuit of find one that provides strength, speed, endurance and agility. No matter what program I followed it always fell short somewhere. Lift to heavy I can’t run, run to much I can’t lift.
I never bought into CrossFit until I joined a specialty team at work. You could say it’s where my journey began. I was awakened to the progressive and challenging yet condensed workouts putting it all out on the floor until the clock buzzes and despite its short yet high speed nature you are spent.
In my profession my physical fitness dictates my performance and overall safety therefore making it for me at least an issue of constant compliance.
I want to thank you guys for the quality advice, attention to detail and dedication they make to the clients and the quality programming both fitness and nutrition based. I looking forward to hitting more PR’s under you watchful eye and guidance.
