Kineta is 41 years old and retired from the US Air Force. She is now hustling as a Personal Beauty Consultant. She's the proud mother of sweet Ayana, who just may be the next Gabby Douglas! Ah, and Kineta has this dog who swears he is a human. Oh and I can't forget to mention she is single!!! I am telling all her business but that's because I am seriously fascinated by this #fitchic. She is a single mother and an entrepreneur, but she still manages to do the things necessary in order to make/keep her health a top priority! So Kineta and Pati ( Pati is the other #fitchic of the week! If you haven't read it yet, please do not forget too!) have been on the In Awe team right at a year now. They literally hit the Flatbelly ground with a goal in mind and have not stopped working toward it since. Their #fitchic-ness has been so real that almost half of their Boujie Locs clients are now #fitchics!

Check out Kineta's #Fitchic thoughts below....

Starting weight & waist: 180 lbs 37 inches

Current weight & waist: 153 lbs 29.5 inches

What is your "#fitchic WHY"?

"I wanted to get back to my old self. I also needed balance in my life and part of that "balance" was to start making time for myself and to take better care of myself."

What is your definition of a #FITCHIC?

"A FitChic is dedicated, resilient, motivated and determined to show up for herself on a daily basis despite what life throws at her"

What is the most challenging part about being a #fitchic?

"The most challenging thing about being a FitChic for me is balance. We as women take care of everyone and everything and always put ourselves on the back burner. I'm still working on continuing to put myself first while balancing everything else in my hectic life, ie my daughter's schedule, work, home etc."

What is the best part about being a #fitchic, and being apart of the In Awe family?

"As the old saying goes, when you look good you feel good. But I'm not only speaking in the physical sense. As a whole, I feel great, my mental state, no more ailments, etc. I love the fact that I feel as though I'm getting "my" life back.."

If any... what’s your least favorite thing about your body!?

"I don't have a particular body "part" that I'm unhappy with however overall, I would like to lean out some more."

What do you daily to try to improve your least favorite areas?

"I'm in Amber's Build and Lean program to sculpt my body and to lean out the wya I'd like to see myself. Daily I try to go hard in the paint and give it all I've got during my morning workout sessions."

What was your first impression of Amber?

"My first impression of Amber...I thought she was HILARIOUS, crazy and scary all at the same time!! I love her rawness, which is exactly what I needed to stay in this thing!!"

Why do you continue to choose In Awe Fitness programs over all others?

"I choose Amber's programs of any others because she holds you accountable and I know for a fact that they work!! Not only that, but because my trainer loves what she does. Her entire program is such a labor of love and for what she pours into it and what you get out of it is simply priceless to me."

Do you have any advice to share with new #fitchics or #fitchics who are struggling to maintain the lifestyle?

“TRUST THE PROCESS, stay encouraged and remember why they started this journey in the first place. We only get one body, you have to take care of it”

Kineta, we are In Awe! Thanks for your honesty, support, hard work and motivation!!! Your beauty shines from the inside out. You came to Amber, and I for motivation and help and yet, we have gained so much in return to include a lifelong friendship!
