"So here I am a month shy of 61, feeling fine and fit!"
Debbie Albert
Botanist

I have made so much progress this year – going from 141 lbs to 128 in 11 months at the age of 60… you just kept on encouraging me and for that I can’t thank you enough!

So here I am a month shy of 61, feeling fine and fit and ready to greet this new year with new goals..

Thank you so much again, Keri… You are relentless in your passion for good health for yourself and others.

My journey with Keri has changed me from the inside out in the most beautiful ways. I have always been petite, but as I entered my late 20s I noticed my metabolism slowing and my food choices and lack of exercise having a much more pronounced impact on my appearance and outlook.

After seeing the transformation my sister experienced working with Keri, I knew I wanted to work with her. Through conversations with Keri and her incredible plans, I faced my complicated relationship with food really for the first time. She created a safe space to explore what made me feel my best. I learned that I can choose myself without feeling guilty and to truly listen to my mind and body.

The workouts Keri provided were challenging and fun and the food plans never left me hungry or wanting. Keri always provided little tidbits of information that elevated my workout or allowed me to get creative in the kitchen. Working with Keri has truly provided an amazing lifestyle change that I can continue to pursue.

"Keri has helped me not only with losing weight (I’m down 13 pounds so far!!) but has completely shifted my mindset about food."
Allison Klocinski
Senior Account Manager

Working with Keri has been a game changer for me. Struggling with weight for years and trying diet after diet and always failing, I knew I wanted something more for myself.

I wanted a program that didn’t just give me a food plan and send me off but actually helped me understand food and the reasons I struggle with it. Keri has helped me not only with losing weight (I’m down 13 pounds so far!!) but has completely shifted my mindset about food. Keri always talks about food freedom and I’ll admit I never thought I would be able to achieve that but here I am enjoying all the benefits that come along with food freedom!! I am so happy I took the leap and invested in myself and had Keri to help me every step of the way!

I wasn’t sure about how online fitness and nutrition coaching would be. I had worked with Coach Keri in person for training and knew exactly what a dynamo she is.

I was amazed to find out that her care and attention to detail that she applies in personal training came across in her online training. She answered every email and phone call immediately and was able to talk me out of many a tree.

The added bonus of the online community of women working towards health and fitness really helped the process.

"Honestly, the money it costs is nothing compared to the experience you get."
Molly Antos
Public Relations Executive

I couldn’t be more grateful for this experience or for Keri herself. If you are in a rut, looking to make a change, want to challenge yourself, expect results and/or are even remotely curious, I highly recommend checking her out. Honestly, the money it costs is nothing compared to the experience you get. I waste at least that much on “going out” every month, and this is much better for your long-term health.

I had the privilege of working with Keri during one of the biggest transitions of my life- my pregnancy with my first baby, the early postpartum period and the beautiful journey into motherhood.

Working with Keri has been one of the greatest gifts I’ve given myself. She has empowered me to face my unspoken fears and anxieties, while loving and trusting myself through the process. She approaches her work with a passion that is as genuine as it is contagious. She flawlessly balances being nurturing, with always keeping it real. I contribute my healthy pregnancy, my full term healthy baby, and my positive labor and postpartum experience to the work that Keri & I did together.
Karen Acker
Software Sales Executive

Her program nourished me in mind, body and soul. She helped me to remain physically active, taught me how to truly listen to my body for the first time in my life, and gave me the foundational knowledge to make positive nutritional choices that ultimately contributed to more energy and vitality both during, and after my pregnancy. In terms of results, I’ve lost ~5” inches and 14 lbs. since being cleared for exercise, while still being able to maintain a healthy milk supply to continue to breastfeed my baby. However, what I gained most from Keri’s programs was more than a physical transformation. The most important work we did together was centered around my mental health and my soul. Keri can intuitively see the unseen parts of her clients, and can guide you in bringing light and awareness to the parts of you that you may have forgotten. Keri taught me how to stand in my power and how to challenge the patterns that kept showing up in my life, with the goal of living more authentically. She helped empower me to show up for myself, everyday.

I am better equipped to navigate my life – the good, the bad, the extraordinary, and the mundane- because of the tools and strategies she’s shared with me.”

"Keri is not just your trainer or personal lifestyle coach, she’s your friend and is there with you every step of the way."
Tanya Roberts
Public Relations Executive

I have learned so much, not only about food, health and nutrition, but about myself. It has opened my eyes to a lot and I have happily made a lifestyle change that is healthy and makes me feel good inside and out.

My self-confidence and self-worth have changed tremendously, and granted part of that is because my body has changed, but most of all it’s my overall thinking that is different.

I am still human and still have my “fat” or blah days, but 7 months ago I felt awful and was so embarrassed how I let myself get to where I was.

I used to be very athletic, always playing sports when I was younger, throughout HS, and being active in college, and then I got to a point and I lost all of that. I had no confidence or motivation, but thanks to Keri’s program, and Keri, that changed.

Keri is not just your trainer or personal lifestyle coach, she’s your friend and is there with you every step of the way. Helping you when you have bad days and commending you for your good days. 

I don’t know what I would have done or how I would be feeling today if I hadn’t made the decision to join.

I am so happy I found Keri. Before, I was always on a diet. While I would see results, the weight always came back a few months later. Failing and starting over so often was mentally exhausting. Keri really worked with me to ensure her program would fit into my life. She made it impossible to fail by easing me into my new routine and teaching me about how your body uses food for energy.

After going through a questionnaire and a phone consultation, Keri worked with her Registered Dietician to create a custom vegetarian meal plan. The food is really very good. I was a healthy eater before her program, but Keri helped teach me about how foods work together and what to eat at the right times throughout the day to get the most out of my meals.
Danielle Portier

A simple testimonial will never truly be able to say how grateful I am – I was a terrible emotional eater and I never thought I’d be able to get a grip on my health and my life. Thanks to Keri I have the self confidence and mental know-how to live a healthy, happy, and fit life. Thank you!!

"Her philosophy demonstrates what type of person she is and someone I don’t want to let down. She keeps me on track, motivated and focused on my goals."
Holly Purdue
Online Client in California

Words can not describe the transformation Keri has physically and emotionally put me through. Being a senior in college is hard enough, but finding time to workout and eat properly has been difficult.

Even being a former cross-country runner I thought I could never gain weight if I kept running, but I was wrong.

Keri is so passionate about her job, caring about each individual person and has become a true friend. She has taught me that “every meal is a new chance to get back on track.”

We all have our bad days in training and eating and I learned we can’t let one slip up ruin the whole day. I’ve always been an athletic person that went to the gym, but always doing the same type of workouts became too familiar to my body.

Once I started workouts with Keri and her style of using my own body weight to tone and shape my body, I saw results.

The first day I met Keri there was one thing that stood out to me. She spoke about being grateful for what we have because many people don’t have the ability to workout and push themselves.

Her philosophy demonstrates what type of person she is and someone I don’t want to let down. She keeps me on track, motivated and focused on my goals.

Without her meal plans and workouts I would be stuck in the same old routines and not have this passion to become a healthier me.

"What got me through the program was Keri’s constant inspiration."
Melia Bett, Teacher
From the day I met Keri, I knew that she was one of the rare women out there that have stunning gorgeous looks, intelligence AND much talent. Keri Ford is a trailblazer that has the ability to inspire others to want to give their life an entire make-over – from physical fitness, a healthy eating lifestyle, beauty tips, to obtaining an overall positive attitude.
Cori Ford
Marriage and Family Therapist

Pictures of Keri alone are a testament to her hard work and dedication to the above mentioned; she is living proof that self-challenge and perseverance really do pay off. Keri realizes people’s potential before they do; it is merely up to them to trust and believe that she can assist them in accessing and actualizing that potential in themselves.

When Keri insisted that I try taking one of her spin classes that she taught in Hollywood, I told her she was “crazy!” I hate working out, and the thought of sweating that hard, and moving at top speed for an hour-straight sounded like a nightmare!

So, after a few months of Keri’s persistent charm and persuasion, I found myself on a spin bike in an over-sized T-shirt and stretch pants. I was right; it was ridiculously strenuous, painful, and too intense. I said, “never again!” Keri said, “you have to go at least 3 times before you can say that.”

I ended up at nearly every class, every week, for almost a year; I learned to love and crave it!! Since then, I have taken other spin classes, and now call “spinning” MY form of exercise, whenever asked. I thank and owe that all to Keri.

She made a believer out of me, and I am one of the most stubborn and steadfast people in the world! Keri is an inspiration to us all to be fit and fabulous!!

"Rest assured, once you sign up she will never give up on you!"
Caitlin Crane

After seeing Keri’s posts on Facebook including the amazing “before and after” photos of her clients, I decided to take a closer look. Everything about it sounded appealing and seemed realistic for me.

The other HUGE bonus is having access to Keri as your personal trainer, nutritional and fitness mentor, and friend. I don’t know anywhere else that you can go to for weight loss with that kind of support.

Without Keri’s overwhelming support and nutritional guidance, her program wouldn’t be the life-changing operation that it is. Rest assured, once you sign up she will never give up on you!

Aside from looking better in my clothes, I have had more energy, started sleeping better, had less joint pain in my knees (among other physical ailments), and gained so much more knowledge about the importance of what I am putting into my body.

Gaining knowledge about how to eat more healthily is actually partly what gave me the self-esteem that I was lacking.

I really can’t say enough good things about Keri’s program.

When I first started working with Keri, I was a post-baby mess. I could not do one push up and felt like passing out after a few minutes on the treadmill. Keri hung in there with me and really motivated me to look at exercise in a new way.

I can remember having one moment on our third session where I got really down on myself – in the past, this is the point I would have thrown in the towel on the whole work-out thing. Keri helped me stop and put things in perspective.

She got me through that fork in the road with her kindness, her genuine knowledge, her sense of humor and her willingness to continue kicking my butt! I lost those annoying 10 lbs which felt great, but more importantly I felt stronger than I ever had in my life.

My time with Keri was a life changer. As a bonus, Keri is a great, funny, cool person and I looked forward to seeing her each week. Thank you, Keri!!

"This program made fitness accessible for me. Keri is such a great motivator and coach."
Andrea Rachel
SAHM

I started with Keri’s program a year after my daughter was born. It has changed my life dramatically. When I started, I was about 140 lbs, due to pregnancy and laziness.

I had looked at joining her program about 6 months or so after my pregnancy, but I didn’t get my butt in gear and join then.

After my daughter’s first birthday I saw pictures of myself and just couldn’t sit back any longer! I was heavier then I had ever been!

So, I joined Keri’s spectacular program and here I am at my lowest weight since high school! Her program has given me a purpose other than being a stay at home mom. The structure is amazing!

The workouts Keri sends are inventive and exciting and I don’t get bored. Having my daughter with me all day, I had to do all of my exercises at home and I was still able to see results!

I really appreciated being able to get each work out done while she was napping or I could take her out with me in the stroller. This program made fitness accessible for me. Keri is such a great motivator and coach.

She is there for you whenever you need her and the support is amazing! With the personalized nutrition plan I eat beautiful, whole food and I am never hungry!

This is a great way to change your lifestyle! It has kick started my health, love of fitness, and really changed my life. I am so thankful to be part of her community!

Keri is a motivator and she changed my mind about what it really means to work out. Rather than working out being a chore, she set the spin room with candle lights and intentional music… meaning, every song has a purpose that interacts with a specific movement.

By the end of the class, you’ve felt like you’ve gone on a journey that you don’t want to end. I remember getting off the spin bike in tears one night after class, because she was helping me to make health choices that would change my life.
Miracle McClain
Community Development Consultant

Keri’s sessions allowed me to realize that health and fitness is a mental thing. There were many times when I felt like I just couldn’t do it, and that is the point at which, I think I benefited most from her. To have an external motivator to encourage you to keep going, and most importantly, to keep you accountable!

"Not only did Keri provide the foundation for life changing habits, but she was also there for me whenever I needed advice or had questions!"
Melia Bett
Teacher

In high school I was in the best shape of my life. I played softball, ran track, and when I wasn’t doing all of that I was playing some other sport for fun. I got to college and maintained my weight for about a year and then I started gaining!

I guess I gained the “Sophomore 15.” My friend and I decided to join a gym and kick our habits and that worked for about a year. I stopped having a workout buddy, started getting stressed from work out of college, and life happened.

Maintaining my weight and proper nutrition was the last thing I had time to work on and I put on an extra 20 pounds. After that I decided to take the “easy” way out and not really work for it.

I tried this pill and that pill, I bought books, workout series DVDs, etc, BUT nothing was really working because I didn’t have a foundation for healthy habits. I wanted a quick fix and that wasn’t ideal.

I found Keri through the wonderful web and on a whim decided to see what her online program was about. I got excited with the prospect of someone giving me a nutrition plan and workouts to follow!

Not only did Keri provide the foundation for life changing habits, but she was also there for me whenever I needed advice or had questions! Keri was always there to guide me and once I got it, I started seeing results.

And the workouts were by far the most challenging, yet fun ones, I’ve ever experienced! What got me through the program was Keri’s constant inspiration.

She is truly a person to look up to and she always responds to my emails in a timely fashion. I can honestly say, she has changed my life and I will always be grateful!

"Her philosophy demonstrates what type of person she is and someone I don’t want to let down."
Holly Purdue, California
I found Keri when I was at an ultimate low. I’d lost a bunch of weight crash dieting for a fitness competition and I felt horrible. My self esteem and body paid the price for the quick fix. Even though she wasn’t a prep coach, she agreed to work with me. As a former fitness competitor and a current model, all I wanted was to be her! I couldn’t imagine ever being there! I knew immediately that her program was different.

Coach Keri listened to me, my goals, and my life! Most importantly, she was able to work around a very complicated blood coagulation disease to find a diet that worked for us both. I finally felt healthy and confident- for the first time since I got sick two years before.
Laney Powers
Acquisition Manager

The most important thing for me was having someone who would just listen. I remember feeling completely alone as everyone else was pigging out on holidays and I was on a diet. Coach Keri is never more than a phone call away.

Keri’s coaching program was more than a diet plan for me. It marked the beginning of my own personal understanding of nutrition and fitness, so that when I wanted… I could eat like a normal person – not feel bad and not binge! That was crazy for someone trying to compete!!! And I owe it all to her. Elevate with Keri is an education system to help you change your life in the long term! No short cuts but all the support and knowledge I could hope for!

My Elevate with Keri family is so diverse and supportive. I got a coach and an entire family of women to talk to about fitness and exercise. I owe so much of my journey to Keri. When she met me, I was an unhealthy skinny-fat athlete who under ate as a way to feel better.

The knowledge I gained on Keri’s coaching program helped me transform into a competitor, model, and athlete while still being a functioning woman and mother

"After witnessing my cousin’s amazing transformation through Keri's program (Tanya R.) I made the decision to try it out. This decision saved my love and passion for working out!!"
Julia Alves-Cassidy
MS, RD, CEDRD

Where do I begin? I have always been an avid exerciser. Sadly at 19, I had an exercise addiction that led to a small relapse of disordered eating.

After that, I began exercising in moderation. With my love for running, I have completed a total of 5 half marathons and countless 10k’s, but I was never happy with my body.

After my second son was born I was having difficulty “getting back in shape”. I worked with a few trainers from the gym, but they never really heard what my goals were. And due to the training format, it was so cookie cutter. I never felt that I had accomplished a solid workout, not to mention how repetitive it was.

After witnessing my cousin’s amazing transformation through Keri’s program (Tanya R.) I made the decision to try it out. This decision saved my love and passion for working out!!

Due to my exercise abuse history it has taken some time for my body to trust me, but I have never felt stronger and more athletic than I do now. Keri’s program is the complete athletic package.

Not only do we get amazing workouts and meal plans, we also get motivation and encouragement from Coach Keri. The community has also given a sense of belonging and friendship. I really admire the support from Coach Keri and all the girls.

It is truly amazing to know other women are going through the same food and exercise struggles that I have and that we can support one another through food tips/suggestions, our love for exercise and overall health.

Thank you, Keri, for your fabulous program!!!

It has been so refreshing working with Keri.

FINALLY a trainer who gets it! When I started training with her it was clear from the get-go that I had found a professional-level athletic trainer in her, but I was pleasantly surprised by her profound knowledge and understanding of nutrition and food’s effect on our bodies.

Most fitness trainers I’ve encountered tend to follow the calorie-focused or low-carb driven “diets” that are based on the USDA food pyramid which is greatly influenced by economics, but Keri has a real understanding of the simple facts which are contrary to what the food advertisers tend to brainwash us with.
Kelly Huston
Engineering Project Support Manager, California

She gets that we need to put REAL, unprocessed, WHOLE foods in our bodies in balance in order to be healthy and to be physically and mentally capable of reaching our athletic potential.

Since I have been working with Keri, I feel more informed and empowered with knowledge about what I’m really putting in my body; which means no more hormone and antibiotic-injected meats, no more processed foods that barely resemble the original fruit or vegetable they may have started out as, no more high-fructose corn-syrup products and no more of that junk that my body doesn’t “recognize”, as Keri puts it.

It’s so simple and I feel so amazing! I’m just so impressed by Keri’s passion for true health and teaching people how to achieve it for themselves. She’s the real deal and I’m so glad I found her! THANK YOU, KERI!

"Finding a fitness coach who understands that sometimes you really do want a cookie (and doesn’t make you feel guilty) is a miracle."
Erika Jones

I found Keri online via Instagram, and I instantly fell in love with her. After having my second child I was looking for some inspiration again and I needed to find moms just like me. When I came across her program, it was a dream come true. Not only were Keri’s fitness values similar to my own, but she also had a baby about a month ahead of me. Being a mother of two and going to college full-time I needed a push. I needed someone to tell me what to do in the gym. I wanted to enjoy my fit journey with workouts that didn’t consist of constant cardio. The gym and working out was nothing new to me, but Keri’s program pushed me to the next level! The workouts are amazing and fresh. I never get bored and look forward to pushing myself.

Starting off my fitness journey I did Keri’s 30-day Sugar Momma Challenge. It opened my eyes to the food I was putting into my body, and made me aware of the food I SHOULD be eating instead.

Finding a fitness coach who understands that sometimes you really do want a cookie (and doesn’t make you feel guilty) is a miracle. Keri blew me away with her understanding of the human body!

Now with my new perspective on eating, I realize it’s a lifestyle to fuel my body. As a mom this means a lot to me because now I have the tools to show my children that eating healthy doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your food. I am so thankful for Keri.

After my first child, my fitness lifestyle consisted of just cardio and a strict diet. I was not in a healthy place, and I see now how unhealthy I really was both mentally and physically. I’m really happy with the woman I’ve become and I enjoy working out not because “I want to be skinny” – instead because “I want to be strong and fit!”

The best thing about Keri and the Embody group program is that she does not give up on her clients. She knows when to give tough love and push in the right direction. I am so appreciative that she treats me like an individual and not as part of a larger group, since my needs are unique. I know that I am on the right path because of Keri.

"Keri's community really is my biggest support system, whether we’re rooting each other on, posting new and fun recipes or just chatting about life, it’s where I go to get inspiration and motivation!!"
Noelle Andrews
CEO + Photographer of Femina Design

My journey with Keri and her program has really been life changing! Having been very athletic all my life and a competitive gymnast growing up, being healthy and fit always “came naturally”, however after college I felt my metabolism slowing and the pounds were packing on.

I will admit that for a few years I was in denial that I no longer had an athletic build. The truth was even though I was still going to the gym regularly, I really wasn’t seeing results because I wasn’t being up front and honest about my lifestyle and eating habits. And it really came down to just making small adjustments and setting daily goals to help get back on track. It’s not like I had to stop eating all the things I love and give up everything. In fact, it’s the opposite philosophy with Keri’s program because it’s about finding balance!

I have learned SO much more from Keri than just how to lose weight and be healthy. I’ve learned what it means to find balance with food and exercise all while facing everyday obstacles and life challenges. I’m the perfect example of someone who just doesn’t have the time to workout or prep healthy meals, but in the end, those are just excuses. Keri has taught me, along with all the other community members, that you can pretty much do anything you set your mind to as long as you make yourself a priority. It’s not about dieting and living at the gym 7 days a week.

It’s about making small changes, being accountable and being part of a community of people who want to see you succeed. Keri’s community really is my biggest support system, whether we’re rooting each other on, posting new and fun recipes or just chatting about life, it’s where I go to get inspiration and motivation!!

I couldn’t be any luckier to be a part of it all!

"Without Keri's program, and Keri, it would not have been possible for me to achieve my fitness and lifestyle goals."
Desirae Nigro
Registered Nurse

In March of 2012, I decided that I had enough of an unhealthy lifestyle including: smoking, bad eating habits and living a fairly sedentary lifestyle.

Keri’s comprehensive program included nutritional guidance, workout programs and general motivation that has enabled me to transform my body and change my lifestyle. Since beginning the program, I have completed four 5k races, a Tough Mudder, and eventually, a half marathon!

Also, I am now a proud NON-smoker.

Without Keri’s program, and Keri, it would not have been possible for me to achieve my fitness and lifestyle goals.

I’ve been struggling with the how-to’s of exercise and eating right for years. When I stumbled upon Keri’s website and the Embody Group Program, I stalked the site for a few days before going on all and let me tell you, it was the best decision I’ve made for myself concerning diet and exercise knowledge yet!

Keri is absolutely amazing – everything is simple and easy to follow, easy to understand. The eating plans are so customizable that I never find myself wondering what to eat next or unprepared for the day ahead. And the exercises are completely awesome and do-able! I’ve already lost inches in the three weeks that I’ve started implementing lifestyle changes and I feel amazing. Great for the beginner all the way to the advanced!

Would definitely recommend if you’re looking for an easy to understand, easy to follow change to your eating habits and your exercise routine.
