OWNER/ HEALTH COACH
Karan Duncan, CPT
I started my personal health transformation in 2010 at 277 pounds. I turned 40 that May. Coming to the realization that I had lost my mother when she was only 56 to ovarian cancer I knew I needed to make a change. I decided that it would be my goal in 2011 to complete the Danskin Triathlon.
I live a busy life like most of us do these days. I have 3 children at home and have a full time professional career. I have spent most of my adult life overweight and unhealthy. I adopted a no excuses attitude about taking my health back.
I started my transformation On Oct 14th 2010, ran my 1st 5K on Nov 1st and by June of 2011 I had lost over 100 pounds and was ready to compete in the Danskin triathlon. By the time Danskin came around I had already completed two 5Ks and 2 Triathlons. These events keep me focused and motivated and I make sure I always have something scheduled on my calendar.
The more I learned about the connections between my body, food, fitness and my mood the more I wanted to learn and inspire others. Fitfanatic started as a place where people who were interested in fitness and nutrition could support each other and has become a catalyst for something much larger.
Many of the things I implemented in my own life this last year and a half were not new ideas. I do believe we are stuck in patterns that make it difficult to create lasting change. I believe we can create a supportive network and a lasting connection that will make it easier to create long-term changes in our behavior and the way we care for ourselves. I will help you transform knowledge into action! Are you ready?
