Hi! Allow me to introduce myself...

My name is Katie and I'm the author of these emails, blogs, and owner of Harlan Coaching. I have quite a few new subscribers, so I thought it would be a good time to introduce myself to you.

I send emails throughout the week that are meant to inspire, motivate, and educate you in your health and fitness journey. If you ever have feedback, questions, or comments about anything in the newsletters, please feel free to write me back!

Okay, let me tell you a bit about myself… I am a mom to three young children and a wife to my very best friend and partner in this crazy life, Chris. I am an online health and fitness coach and a digital marketer, and I also teach group fitness classes on the side. I love helping people find their best selves through health and fitness. I also love sunsets, coffee, beaches, sweatpants, and pedicures. I am a positive person with a lot of energy, and I like to keep it REAL. I hope we can be friends!

My fitness journey started after I had my youngest daughter 4 years ago. I was tired of being tired and really ready to focus on me for a minute (3 kids under 3 was exhausting!). I knew nothing about nutrition, very little about efficient and effective exercises, and had no idea where I would find the time for anything other than managing my gaggle of children.

I found an online fitness coach (who continues to inspire me today!) and slowly but surely, she helped me figure out my nutrition, my exercise, how to fit it in, and how to quit giving so many excuses. And after working with her for 30 days, I had lost 7 pounds, 12 inches, and I had found more energy than I'd ever had--even with a new baby!!

My renewed confidence propelled me to continue on my fitness journey, and the results and changes kept coming. I found my pre-pregnancy weight. I wore a bikini post-babies with confidence. My clothes became too big. I became a fitness instructor. I found MUSCLE definition. I became an online health and fitness coach.

Over the past 4 years, I have not only found my best health and confidence, but I've shared what I've learned with hundreds (thousands?) of people and helped them transform their lives as well. It is the BEST job ever!!

As I discover new products and strategies, I will continue to share them with you! It is my goal to keep fitness and nutrition solutions SIMPLE so that we can sustain them long-term. In January, I put together all of my favorite information for gaining better health and bringing your family along with you (a key to sustainability) and created my very own program. It's called the 4-Week Slim Down. I've had 17 women go through the program and they are loving the simple check-in system, the meal plans, and the workouts I designed. The next round of this program will begin prep-week on February 20th and I'd love to invite you to join us. If you invest in yourself, it will pay you back in dividends. Check out the info here!
