How to lose weight
with bad knees
Are you tired of having limited mobility due to painful knees?
I was downtown running some errands, just after a bad storm. I entered into an office building in the front lobby and noticed everyone standing around looking confused. I asked a lady who was next to me, what was going on. She explained to me the storm knocked the power out to the elevators. Everyone was told to use the stairs if they had any business to take care of. I noticed several people leaving, motioning they would come back another day.
Others proceeded to go to their designated floors, but this woman in particular looked sad. I was concerned and asked her what was wrong. She informed me her knees were bad and she couldn’t take the stairs. The stairs for her were not an option. She then told me it was imperative she make it to the 3rd floor to pay an urgent bill and today was the deadline. She stated if she did not make the payment today, she would lose her house. I felt so compelled to help her, I asked her if she would allow me to make the payment for her. She happily obliged and she waited for her receipt.
It felt so good to be able to help someone in need, but I kept thinking, what more could I do for her, and people like her, to increase mobility and decrease knee pain. As someone who has also suffered from knee pain from being overweight, I know first hand the stigma of not being able to climb a flight of stairs, stand up after being seated for a long period of time, or simply being able to participate in my favorite physical activities. Being overweight is its own problem, but while you are trying to lose weight, you do not have to be in pain.
I have spent years studying health and fitness in order to develop programs to help overweight and obese people lead healthy and PAIN FREE lives. I am a nationally certified personal trainer with degrees specializing in human movement and health. My knowledge of training is very extensive and is constantly growing with the needs of my clients. I have spent several years training clients 1:1, and in groups. I have also trained clients in various places including gyms, parks, offices, and homes. I started noticing more and more people wanted to train in the privacy of their home, however I was unable to accommodate this high demand. This is when online training was born. I was able to meet the needs of all of my clients by developing a program that could easily be done at home or in a gym. I am also a Corrective Exercise Specialist who specializes in correcting misalignments in the body.
What is a Malalignment?
I noticed that a lot of my overweight/obese clients had malalignments (imperfect body alignment or muscular imbalances) due to sustained injuries and/or pain. Have you ever had a broken or sprained ankle? Did you ever notice that you would not put a lot of pressure on the injured ankle but would put all of your weight on the uninjured ankle? Did you notice you did the same thing even after the injured ankle healed? Well what happens over time is the body heals that way creating muscular imbalances. One side will become stronger and the other side will become weaker, inhibited or have limited function. This is what is called imperfect alignment. Over time, this can lead to a whole host of other injuries which could be avoided by utilizes corrective exercises to get the body back into perfect alignment. As a Corrective Exercise Specialist I am able to assess your anatomy, and use the knowledge necessary to successfully design a corrective exercise program to help clients plagued by muscle and joint pain caused by musculoskeletal imbalances.
" My name is Stanley Howard and I am overweight, I have come to believe that a positive person with a stand fast and motivating attitude can overcome almost anything. Dr. Kina is that person for me. She motivates me to work hard, eat right, and believe that my goals are obtainable. Kinas’ best quality is she understands what I am going through and she has never put me down or allowed me to give up. “Monster Status” is her catch phrase. These two words have become my tool for success. By her life’s example Kina has shown me what, when, how much, and what times to eat. Through her exercise plans she has directed me on what to do, how long to do it, and the results i I stick to the plan. If it was not for the marvelous trainer I would not be as healthy or happy with myself as I am today. She gets results and if you want results you cannot go wrong with using Kina and her plan for success.

Knee Pain, Go Away!
Finally, A Program that Works for You!
So you decided you want to lose weight, but don't want to be in pain? Well this program is perfect for you! When you are selecting a personal trainer, it becomes a partnership. You have to select someone you trust, someone who is knowledgeable in their field, and someone who is going to deliver what they said they could. As your online personal trainer, there are several things you can expect to receive.
Education. You will know what you need to do, but you will also know why you are doing it. There is nothing worse then being given a task but not knowing why. When you know the reason behind why you are doing a specific task or exercise, it makes you more willing to do it. For example, you will be educated on how to do exercises correctly, which prevents injuries and increases your effectiveness towards reaching all which will maximize your results.
Specificity. You are a unique person, with uniques goals. A program will be developed specifically for you and your needs. I do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach. A unique program will be completed for you, ONLY after learning what your unique goals are. You will also be A PART OF THE PROCESS. I cannot do it without you and your input.
Realistic Goals. Once people begin an exercise program they want to reach their goals. Sometimes though, they want to set goals that are unrealistic. For example, maybe they want to lose 50 pounds in 30 days or they want to run a 5K in 2 weeks but have not run a day in their life. As your personal trainer, my job is to help you reach your goals by setting S.M.A.R.T. goals. They need to be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely. By making and setting S.M.A.R.T. goals, failure is not an option.
Accountability. When you are working with me, I am you accountable for your exercise program. You have someone working with 24/7 to help you reach your fitness goals. My job is to ensure you commit and stick to your exercise program.
More than just fitness. As your trainer, my job goes beyond fitness. Yes I can help you with your fitness needs, but I can also help you with nutrition education, mental health and your overall wellbeing. All of these factors play an important factor in your success.
Lifestyle change. As your personal trainer, my make job is to help you to develop a lifestyle change which becomes part of your daily routine. This is done by helping you form good habits, showing you how to schedule exercise into your life and being available when you need me.
Challenge. I can guarantee if you follow the plan, you will not end where you start! I will encourage AND challenge you to be the best version you can be and I will be right with you the whole time!
