Are you ready to transform your body? Have you been procrastinating on working out, and need an accountability partner? Well if you’re truly ready to get your body right and keep it tight, we recommend a true BOSS of fitness, the amazing Keonna “Kee” Jones!
Representing Washington, DC, Kee is a BOSS Entrepreneur!! She is a Child Care Owner and Educator by day, and a Personal Trainer by night!! (True Boss!)
Kee is motivated by knowing that she gets to reshape and transform her clients on a daily basis!
So what made Kee decide to become a Fitness Trainer? Kee says that she initially started as a client! Her personal goal was to lose 20 pounds and reduce her body fat percentage. Once she reached her goal, her close friends and family wanted her to help them with their goals. With her help, they achieved results and that’s when she realized her calling in the fitness world.
“I used to be a Herbalife Distributor; made great money, help & meet a lot people locally & internationally. Nothing negative to say, other than, there’s no shake, pill or body wrap that will give you instant results. Physical activity has to be done, whether you choose to use supplement aids or not. Having a Fitness Trainer provides the benefit of accountability, professional training and advice, and above all… guaranteed results!”
Kee became a Certified Fitness Trainer, through a self-paced program, with the American Council of Exercise (ACE). Kee has been training since 2013 and has worked with worked with over 100 clients. Kee enjoys group training, and her groups consist of 3-5 clients at a time, who all have different goals! Kee’s clients usually see results within 60-90 days, and Kee says she enjoys seeing the smiles on her clients’ faces, when they’ve reached their goals. For Kee, there is no better feeling than knowing that she assisted in changing someone’s life and lifestyle! Most of Kee’s clients have the common goal to lose their stomach and gain glute (butt) mass. Kee says that it’s possible to achieve with physical activity, to include strength training and proper nutrition with the right trainer; HER! (We heard that!)
Initially, Kee’s biggest challenge was preparing for and passing her exam. However, gaining clientele was never a problem, due to personal fitness motivation she displayed in the gym and on social media.
“I love the challenge of being able to effectively train numerous people at once. People could relate to my busy lifestyle, but still being able to work out.”
Kee got her first big break as a Fitness Trainer when she was being a guest trainer, at a fitness event hosted by the Redskins football team! Due to media being involved, Kee was able to get a lot of exposure as a new trainer! (Nice!!)
“I stress portion control and drinking water to my clients! It’s important to maintain balance between personal & fitness life. Don’t allow one to consume the other.”
“I used to eat junk food all the time. My Body fat % and BMI% were extremely high, based on my height & weight. There is nothing wrong with cheat meals, you just can’t have them every day. “
Kee currently trains at Torch Gym, which is located in Capitol Heights, MD (PG County). Kee also has weekly 1-on-1 training sessions and a specialty boot camp, called KITs BAE (Booty & Ab experience) on Mondays at 7:30pm. Make sure you keep up with Kee, as she will be having a Club KIT (fitness dance party) pop up event, on January 26th at 7:00pm. (Weerrkkk!!) Not only does Kee enjoy being a Fitness Trainer, she also loves to travel, and she flys out of the country at least 3-4 times per year! (You Go Girl!!)
If you’re looking to become a Fitness Trainer, Kee has the following advice,
1.) Be sure to study. Join online & in-person studying groups.
2.) Don’t mimic the next trainer. Be yourself. No two trainers are the same. That’s a good thing.
