"Everyone has their own perception of what an athlete should look like. I want to break the norm because I believe an athlete comes in all shapes and sizes. To me, an athlete is a person who is constantly challenging themselves. Being a female athlete that weighs 200+ is something that is easily looked upon as lazy, unhealthy and the complete opposite of what an “athlete” should be and this is the exact stereotype that I am working to break. . As a competitive athlete, my main goals are speed and strength, therefore, I eat and train to perform at my best. Food shouldn’t be feared, but instead should be used as a tool for you to fuel your body...

CEO/Founder: Dean

Posted by Kinda Fit Kinda Fat on


CEO/Founder: Dean "I was a “fat" kid growing up. In high school, I had a body fat percentage nearing 50%. It wasn’t until college that I began to take fitness more seriously. In spite of my initial motivation, however, I would only go to the gym maybe 2x a week at most mainly due to fear and simply not knowing how to achieve my goals.I eventually moved on to become a physical therapist. I met a number of wise people ranging from personal trainers and chiropractors to your every day office worker who enjoyed fitness. I became obsessed. I meal prepped religiously, went to the gym >6x a week, and took whatever supplements that promised me beautiful gainz. And it...

CMO: Chad "Pizza and ice cream. Two of my favorite things in the world. Oh and I also like working out! Working as a Registered Nurse on night shift makes it a complete struggle to find a steady sleep and eating schedule. Sometimes I fail to go to the gym right after work and end up grabbing a quick bite at a fast food joint. And you know what? That's totally ok.I believe in this brand because it represents the idea to not only be focused on the end result, but to take time to enjoy who you are today. Join the brand. Join the movement.My name is Chad and I enjoy basketball and eating ice cream directly from the...

CEC: Meena “I’ve always had self esteem issues. I’ve been a big girl my entire life and since I was a child I’ve been through a plethora of diets, pills, teas and other concoctions. I’ve gone through eating disorders and a bunch of unhealthy ways to lose weight throughout my ENTIRE life. Despite the weight I’ve always been deceptively athletic. Multiple varsity sports in high school as well as college and grad school intramurals and consistent active life- cycling 20 miles, swimming a mile, running a 5k- all easily doable. Despite doing all these, at the end of the day I was terribly unhappy and hated myself just because of the weight and how I saw myself. KFKF came at...

COO: Jon

COO: Jon “Growing up, I was always viewed as the fat kid in the neighborhood and at some point, I learned to just accept that so that I wouldn’t feel offended anymore. My instagram name @bigboirun33 originated from the idea that I was that big boy running on my high school basketball team.That same mentality carried through college and adulthood. I was constantly trying to protect myself from being made fun of or ridiculed for my weight and size. I became obsessed with trying different fad diets. Needless to say, I struggled through these diets without caring how I felt just so that I would see results. I wanted to hear validation from others on how much weight loss I achieved. Even...

Athlete: Monica “Like most girls, I started off as the occasional cardio bunny. Even then, I was never consistent with going to the gym. My relationship with food was always on the extreme side — I’d either eat very little from insecurities or binge/eat out all the time, immediately feeling guilty after. Being a daughter of tiny Asian parents, my self esteem hit rock bottom when they told me they were worried I’d get “too big”. There’s a lingering stereotype that Asian women are meant to be petite, submissive, and dare I say... weak🤭. Deep down, I unfortunately agreed with them — I hated my body and eventually learned the hard way that YOLO diets, pills, waist trainers, & fit...

Athlete: Sylvie "If there was one word that could describe my life it would be "yo-yo." My weight has always fluctuated. With that, came self image issues and hating my body. I was always the taller, more curvy girl out of my friends and I didn't know how to cope with that. I've spent most of my life on a diet and came to the realization that I needed a lifestyle change - not just a temporary solution. I'm a self-proclaimed foodie and baker, and I was sick of missing out on the different foods and dessert recipes that were out there. That's where Kinda Fit Kinda Fat™ came in. They helped me realize that I can enjoy my favorite...

Athlete: Tess “Between the ages of 14-19 I had trouble with drug abuse. One day a good friend took me to the gym because I was unhappy with my appearance (I was very skinny). I started going to the gym strictly for aesthetic purposes, I stopped doing drugs, smoking cigarettes, and drinking alcohol to lead a healthier life style, but I began to substitute that with dieting hard because my original goal was to be a bikini competitor. After dieting and over exercising under a bad coach I stopped, began to reverse diet and brought my metabolism and health back to normal. I began to realize that I enjoyed powerlifting more than being in a bodybuilding competition.I realized I was...

Athlete: Kay “My journey started when I dislocated my knee twice after 7 years of lacrosse. My injury led me to be constantly afraid of doing anything that might cauase me to get hurt again. I gained some weight and became insecure because my diet and sweet tooth stayed the same but my level of activity was nonexistent. 2017 came and I met a few people who would lift 3x their body weight and feast on KBBQ daily, all while staying and looking fit! I ended up falling in love with the lifestyle and am now living and loving the sport of powerlifting. Now, I'm pulling weight I never even thought I could lift while eating 7 cookies in between...

Athlete: Eden “I don't remember a time in my teens until my mid 20s that I wasn't self conscious about my weight but didn't really do anything about it nor did I have motivation to. In my early 20s I was full time nursing school and working and made the 'I don't have time' as an excuse. Then I started working night shift and used that as an excuse. Then every year I look at old pictures and thought the oh-so-popular "why did I think I was fat then!?" Then it became more than just physical appearance. My resting (yes, RESTING) heart rate was in the high 90s and my blood pressure looked like a blood pressure of a 60...
