From Fat to Fit and Everything In Between

Kelly Valdez

I grew up overweight, being made fun of and had a level of self confidence of someone who had none at all. After 24 years of living with self-hate, I decided to make a change. With a healthy diet and regular exercise, I have been able to lose 90-lbs, become a certified personal trainer, compete in a figure competition, run half marathons and now have a healthy pregnancy! Life is amazing and I aim to live it.

Atlanta's #1 Trainer

Corey Taylor

I grew up an athlete & a musician in a small town, it wasn’t until college that I discovered fitness and proper nutrition.

As I grew into a published fitness model, and my knowledge expanded past my own goals, I started helping people in my community and online reach their goals. I took my blog and made it a business in Atlanta. Since 2011 I’ve helped over 3000 people lose weight from all over the world, whether at one of my HIIT classes at my studio or online in virtual training or in workshop form during life coaching, fitness has been my lifestyle but now it’s my platform, from celebrities, high profile athletes, doctors, students & single moms, my passion leads the masses.

Hi! My name is Kim and I love all things health & fitness. Until my early 20s, I thought being healthy was some monstrous, unachievable task, but I was so wrong! Treating your body well should and CAN be a second-nature habit. This mindset led to me to lose over 60 pounds, and it changed my entire life in a positive way.

SMART bars are my favorite product! My favorite flavor is coconut almond. I also really love the blueberry and apple cinnamon flavors too, but I have a slight obsession with anything coconut. The bar is so sweet and crunchy and the perfect size for a snack on the go.

I grew up pretty active and was always a normal weight until I hit college where I gained over 100 pounds by being inactive and eating anything and everything. One day I decided enough was enough and I started working out and eating healthy. I have since lost 130 pounds and have completed 4 half marathons!

My favorite Detour product is the Salted Caramel Cookie Dough Simple bar! I track my nutrition carefully and I have a hard time getting in all my needed protein but with delicious bars like this it makes it MUCH easier. I feel like I am eating a candy bar with the simple bars and the bars do not have that chemical taste like many other protein bars.
