Meet Your Coaches


Hello! I'm Karla McCoy and I'm so glad you stopped by!

If you're feeling unhealthy due to weight gain, have tried lots of weight loss products but haven't gotten the lasting results you desire, or you're ready to uncover your sexy body through weight loss, you're in the just the right place!

 If any of those sounds familiar, I get it.
As an African-American woman who has a family history of heart disease and high blood pressure, I struggled with feeling out-of-shape, worried about family risk factors that could possibly affect me, and thinking that the time was now to act on getting healthy. I knew weight loss would add quality to my life, make me look and feel better, and change my whole outlook on my future.

If you're feeling the same way that I felt when I was 30 pounds heavier, I'm sure you\'re thinking that now is the time!

My name is Karla McCoy and I am a personal fitness trainer. I have worked with highly-motivated, professional African American women who came with a desire and goal to change their lifestyle through my fitness and nutrition programs.

I understand that there can be a disconnect in strong desires and actions. My training as a Mindset and Transformation Life Coach has helped my clients understand the bad habits that lead to weight gain, as well as positive strategies of behavior change that lead to the desired goal of weight loss.

Over the past 5 years, I have been coaching and supporting women just like you to reconnect with their inner warrior to become active and fit.

Go ahead and try one complimentary week of my program
and drop 3-5 pounds in the process! 

Feedback & Reviews​

I am so blessed to be able to be part of these women's journeys and witness their success. It's a joy to work with them!

"Karla, meeting you has been a blessing!!! You've helped me with my fitness goals and I'm so grateful. I started at 223 and now I weigh 177. This has taken about 6 months of me being fully committed. Thank you so much!"

"I'm officially in a size 12 and a medium shirt! I've finally decided to purchase new pants because I'm tired of pulling them up, even with a belt"

"Just got my results back from the doc. A1C from 8.1 to 6.5, good cholesterol is 79, blood pressure is down and my cholesterol medication dosage has been reduced. The exercise and change in diet have made a significant difference in my health. I want to thank y'all for helping me get there!"

Rykia brings a "savage" approach to fitness as her clients are millennials like herself who are realizing that there are many benefits to being healthy and fit.

She also has transformed her body by losing 25 lbs using the same strategies and programs designed by Karla.
