BIO

I’m a simple girl with big goals and even bigger dreams. Born in India and raised in Europe, my family moved to America when I was a young teenager. My multi-cultural background and travels around the world have exposed me to a variety of cultures and ways of life. I was able to observe how they approached nutrition, fitness and well-being. For over 11 years, I have worked as a personal trainer, sports nutritionist, and lifestyle coach.I began competing in the summer of 2010 and went on to compete 4 more times before winning my IFBB Pro Card in 2012.
 
I have a competitive personality, so I started competing to prove myself I could. I went through many ups and downs over the years with my health, physical and emotional well-being.As the years go by, my passion for achieving exemplar physical and mental health grows, as does my desire to help others grows.I've read and experimented with many different styles of dieting and nutrition trends to find out what works best for me and those that I help. I came to understand that health is not a one blanket formula. We all have different nutritional needs and our bodies are all unique.
 
Some people think that nutrition and exerciseis limited to the physical appearance, but it impacts so many other areas of our lives. Our health, happiness, confidence, work, and family life are all affected by what we eat and what we do. My goal is to help make a difference in as many lives as possible by setting a good example of living a healthy and well-balanced life. I want to teach others how to live a life free from crash dieting and weight loss pills. I plan to show them how to maintain a healthy lifestyle to reach their goals and live their dreams!

KERRI'S PLAYLIST

what got you into fitness

Truth, I was 26 years old. My whole life was falling apart. I lost my job, my boyfriend left me, my brother and my Dad went to prison. My family was falling apart and I had nothing to hang on to. I had a choice, to be consumed by the fire or rise up out of it. I choose to rise. I poured my energy into something I knew I could control, my health and fitness. It saved me from my darkest place.

what's your Source of inspiration

I derive inspiration from many places and people. What pushes me every day is this burning desire in my head to make a positive impact in this world, and leave it better than I found it.

what's your go-to cheat meal

I would have to say Tex-Mex.. not California Mex, not Mexico Mex, Tex-Mex. Big portions, lots of cheese, avocado and queso, and grilled meat.

what's your favorite tv show

WestWorld .. because the story has the ability to be real in this modern world. It’s like a show you that makes you think: "Wow that’s some fucked up shit."

what does 'never settle' mean to you

It means giving my all and then some. It means doing more when I know I am capable of more. It means not letting my excuses or fear hold me back. It means constantly working towards becoming better, in every way, every single day.

what's your biggest achievement

Winning my pro card, and help my little sister grow into the woman she is today.

what keeps you going

The fear of being ordinary and living an ordinary life.

how has 1st Phorm changed your life

I felt like I finally belonged to something. Family isn't always blood; it’s people whose energy matches with yours ... people who want to see you succeed, see you happy, and who love you for who you are. Here was a group of people who understood me, who listened to me, who wanted to see me grow, and helped bring out the best in me. 1st Phorm gave me the opportunity to help others and inspire others. Teaching others how to take control of their health could be the very thing that saves their life.

KERRI'S FAVORITE SUPPLEMENTS

Opti-Greens 50

"Opti-Greens 50 is the best! I've never had more clear skin, and I no longer have digestive issues. I feel better which is a plus along with waking up with a flat stomach!"

Micro Factor

"MegaWatt V2 brings me to life. Nuff said. I feel like I can lift a truck on this stuff."

Digestive Enzymes

"The 1-Db Goddess is awesome because on days when I am intermittent fasting or trying to cut ... it curbs my appetite and keeps me from snacking!"
