Tone It Up was created by best friends Karena Dawn and Katrina Scott and has quickly become one of the most popular fitness programs and communities in the world.

It’s easy to assume that the women behind the empowering platform have never struggled during a workout or found it hard to stick to clean eating, but that wasn’t the case for Katrina.

This week I was reflecting on my personal journey & how I was destroying my body. When I was a personal trainer in Boston I was working 12+hour days on my feet, teaching classes & training back-to-back clients, so I put my own health to the side (like so many of us do!) I had to grab something quick so I would order a protein shake from the gym (never asking what the protein was made from), grab a “skinny” latte next door bw clients (tons of fake flavors), or have a bar as a meal while preaching the opposite to everyone! Oh & diet coke maybe 3x/day🙈 I was a mess. Every meal was bloated w/ingredients I couldn’t pronounce & tons of chemicals. Some nights I would be so tired when I got home that I would skip dinner & just grab another bar + fat-free yogurt (fake sugars galore) &crash. I knew it was bad. I was going against everything I had learned in college about nutrition but I was in a pattern that I couldn’t shake. I suffered from headaches, +I felt bloated, soft, sluggish & fatigued. Soon after that, I moved to California & made it a priority to change my lifestyle. That’s around the time I met Karena & we started creating the @ToneItUpNutrition Plan together. I said I would be our first test bunny — bc I NEEDED it🐰 This before picture was the 1st time I had ever taken one. I was unhealthy, my confidence was gone, and I was so ready for the next chapter of my life! This after pic is from behind the scenes of this years Bikini Series! How did I change? I started eating at least 5x what I used to and structured my meals the way we lay them out in the Plan. It changed my entire life. My bloat went away, my headaches subsided, my energy increased & I felt AMAZING. *** Seriously, if I could do it, as a Diet Coke-addicted, fake sugar-fueled workaholic, YOU can too! Who can relate?!! The #1 lesson I got from all of this was saying YES to myself and my own health. I made a decision to put my health 1st. So now, we want you to say YES to yourself and your dreams and goals because NOW is the best time in your life to commit to YOU!

Katrina shared on Instagram that she was reflecting on her fitness journey and “how I was destroying my body.” She explained that when she was a personal trainer she would work 12 hours or more, teaching classes and training clients back-to-back, and pushed her own health to the side. As far as her diet was concerned, Katrina wrote, “I had to grab something quick so I would order a protein shake from the gym (never asking what the protein was made from), grab a ‘skinny’ latte next door bw [between] clients (tons of fake flavors), or have a bar as a meal while preaching the opposite to everyone!” She also revealed that she would have a Diet Coke at least three times a day. In the words of Katrina, “I was a mess.”

Katrina shared that due to her demanding schedule, some nights she would skip dinner and opt for a protein bar and go to sleep. “I knew it was bad. I was going against everything I had learned in college about nutrition but I was in a pattern that I couldn’t shake. I suffered from headaches, I felt bloated, soft, sluggish & fatigued,” said Katrina.

Eventually she moved to California and made it a priority to take change her lifestyle. That’s when she met Karena, and the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan was born. “I was so unhealthy, my confidence was gone, and I was so ready for the next chapter of my life,” Katrina recalled. Serious about making a change, Katrina started to eat five times more than she was in the past and structured her meals identical to how they’re laid out in the nutrition plan. “It changed my entire life. My bloat went away, my headaches subsided, my energy increased & I felt AMAZING.”

“The #1 lesson I got from all of this was saying YES to myself and my own health. I made a decision to put my health 1st,” Katrina concluded.
